[REVIEW] Etude House Lip Rich Vivid Tint PK001

Etude House Lip Rich Vivid Tint PK001 Review:

A girl will never find herself having enough lip colors. Different brands, similar shades. Same brand, different shades.

And there are so many different types of lip colors – lip sticks, lip balms, lip glosses, lip stains, lip tints; matte, shiny, moisturizing, long lasting and the list goes on. The brands sure know how to keep their customers coming back for more.

Etude House launched its Lip Rich Vivid Tint this year, in 10 different shades. I saw the swatches on YouTube and the colors looked so sweet. I could not resist buying one even though I have a stash of other lip products in my drawer.


– Highly moisturizing, nourishing tint in creamy viscous texture like cream covers the dry lips vividly and comfortably with high coloring pigment as it softly melts on the lips.

How to use:

[Obtained from Etude House’s official website]

1. With the flat, wide surface of the triangular tip, gently apply on the lips starting from the center of the lips.

2. With the pointy part of the tip, draw along the lip line or apply in dots on the inside of the lips and spread to express gradation

My Lips Type: Dry lips

Etude House Lip Rich Vivid Tint PK001 Review:

I like its packaging in a reflective tube and the show of shade at the bottom. It is longer than a typical lip stick but still handy enough to bring along in a small bag for touch-ups. It has a very stark berry-like scent though I am not sure if all the shades smell the same.

Etude House’s official website described the tint as “creamy viscous texture like cream” but I find it to be nothing like this at all. It feels more like lip gloss to me. The pigmentation is not as rich as some other lip tints I had tried and it gives a glossy, sticky finish similar to a lip gloss. But yes, it is indeed very moisturizing as claimed.

It has a flat pointy tip which makes application easy and precise. Because of the user-friendly tip and that it is not that richly pigmented, there is little chance of getting it wrong. I do not even need to look at the mirror when applying the tint.

The PK001 is a nice pink that gives a natural tone to the lips. I have dark lips. Despite the light pigmentation, the tint was able to cover this and gives my lips a pink healthy glow. For those who prefer matte lip colors or do not fancy sticky lip products, this is definitely not for you.

The tint does transfer a bit onto the cup when drinking but the gloss and color are generally able to last till meal time. After meal, there will be no traces of it left. Not even a tinge of color. My lips look the bare original. This is rather disappointing, as I have thought that lip tints are meant to last longer or at least leave the lips somewhat stained with color.

Well, if it is of any consolation, removing the tint at the end of the day is not going to cause you sore lips, unlike some very resilient lip tints I had tried previously.

I usually prefer natural lip color and this shade is exactly what I like. Unfortunately, I do not like having to re-apply my lip color in the middle of the day. So I am unlikely to repurchase given its very poor lasting power.
If you however do not mind its short-lived stay on the lips, its moisturizing properties and the pretty colors may be worth considering.
