[REVIEW] Etude House Dear Darling Water Gel Tint PK003 Sweet Potato Red

Etude House Dear Darling Water Gel Tint PK003 Sweet Potato Red Review:

Since I have good experiences with lip tints from Etude House, I bought myself another lip tint from them and this time it’s a new version of Dear Darling Water Gel Tint. From what I remember, they have this tint in old version (I think it’s around 2009 – 2012) but I never tried those before.

This new version has better packaging and more shades available, about 15 shades from reds, oranges, to berries colors. Etude House has so many lip tints to choose from but I chose this one because based from the promotion picture, this tint is very pigmented, not drying, and easy to apply. I have a chapped lips so a non-drying lip tint will be a blessing for me.

Etude House Dear Darling Water Gel Tint PK003 Sweet Potato Red Review:

Among those 15 shades, I purchased the shade PK003 Sweet Potato Red, which I think belongs to the lesser favorite shades since I never saw this shade sold out like other shades. I love the cute name and from the swatches online, I can see why they named it like that.

If you see the packaging, you can see the shade inside as well and PK003 is truly a sweet potato red, a warm deep red which I think will look good on every skin tone. I love every shades they have and I have hard times to choose only one shade but PK003 looks really unique and rare for a lip tint, especially from Etude House.

Made from plastic material, it makes this tint really travel friendly. So far I found every Etude House lip products are travel friendly. The lid has red shade and the bottle is transparent so you can see the shade and how much left inside. I prefer this kind of packaging because it fits perfectly on my lipstick organizer.

It has a slanted applicator and it fits perfectly on my lips but unfortunately, I find the applicator doesn’t pick enough product for me and I need to dip more than once to get more product. I don’t mind that too much because the shade is very pretty if you’re using more than a layer. It has a very nice sweet scent and when I licked my lips, it tastes like a bittersweet cough syrup. I won’t recommend you to lick it though because it may be harmful.

The deep warm red color suits my complexion really well and I love how it feels on my lips. It doesn’t emphasis my chapped lips and it feels comfortable as well. As Etude House claims, it’s truly makes my lips feels juicy and moist but then I noticed something disappointing.

Everytime I apply it on my lips, after an hour the color will fade away, as if my lips absorb the tint and leave only patches of red on the lips. Then I apply it again but same thing happened again. I tried it on my bare lips and on top of other lip products but still, the color fades away.

Overall I love the shade and I love how it looks on my skin tone but I might not buy another one because of the poor lasting power. If only they long lasting, I’d surely get another shade but this time I’ll try other collection from Etude.
