Yehey! I’ll be reviewing another makeup today and this time it’s going to be *drumroll* Etude House Sugar Tint Balm. It’s supposed to be a highly moisturizing lip balm with buildable tint. It promises to keep lips soft all day, and even exfoliate dead skin to ensure your lips are kissable all throughout!

Etude House Sugar Tint Balm Swatches

Etude House Sugar Tint Balm Review

It has a very secure twist cap opening before you get to reveal the product. This only means no mess and no stress in your makeup kit! You won’t worry about the cap of your lippie getting removed spilling your lipstick. It’s the reason why I didn’t review/feature Revlon‘s HD Gel Lipstick. The packaging is horrendous and it feels so waxy on the lips.
It’s being sold as a tint, but surprisingly it has amazing pigment. It only takes one swipe to reveal a gorgeous shade of red. I got mine in Cranberry Pie. It also smells like it’s shade. Mine smells slightly like sweet cranberries, but not so much that it’s overpowering. 
Etude House Sugar Tint Balm on the Lips

What I like

  • Great pigmentation
  • Secure Packaging
  • Very moisturizing
  • Lasts very long
  • Leaves a nice tint on the lips
  • Affordable!
  • Buildable color
  • Not Sticky

What could be improved

  • The lipstick product is a bit chubby so girls with thinner lips may need to use lipbrush for this to apply without streaks or overlining.

Final Thoughts

This is truly a winner from Etude House! I’m very curious to try and buy the other shades too especially the pink one. It’s been a while since I discovered a really good lipstick with a great formulation like this one. 

Will I repurchase?

    I believe that the best way for beauty bloggers to reach out to their followers is through vlogging as well as blogging. It is much easier if we see how we can apply the makeup. I want to try the Fanny Serrano foundation

    It's very pigmented for a "balm".

    It's good that you've decided to go vlogging. Make up tutorials are best with videos kasi just like my kid's YT make up artist idol, Promise Phan. I never knew her until she found her in YT. Oh btw, you can earn $ in YT too 🙂 [my kid does only few cents yet heheeh]
