Etude House Plumping Lip Tint Review

Included in it's Fall Collection Etude House released a Plumping Lip Tint which I'm lovinggggg at the moment!

These glosses are new to the Etude House line up and I believe LE but don't quote me on that! They come in two shade selections both of which are sheer but give a nice tiny hint of color to the lips.

I love both shades and I'm happy I indulged in purchasing both as they are high quality items for the price and offer a brilliant glossy layer to my favorite lip stain or lipstick or of course, they look rather gorgeous alone as well. The formula is an emollient, moisturizing and quite thick gloss which gives the illusion of plumped, fuller lips. Each gloss is flavored in a cool, tingly minty bubblegum taste which, for me, a lover of flavored glosses, is quite nice!

The glosses come with the typical spatula style applicator many Asian brands favor and which I totally love as it's great for layering gloss on and getting a nice even finish plus it's easy to clean up prior to placing back into the tube.

The colors available are pink and red but neither is very pigmented however since the gloss contains a fair amount of tingly goodness you can expect to get a certain pink or reddish tone to lips due to this. Over bare lips the gloss looks natural, glossy, and lovely. Over your favorite lip stain or lipstick the gloss creates a sexy mirror finish that's gorgeous!

At under around $5 USD each the price is terribly right and they work almost as great as my favorite plumping gloss of all time, DuWop Lip Venom.

The Muse likes 'em and approved 'em!

Definitely a nice addition to my gloss collection!

What are your favorite plumping glosses?

Feeling like plumping glosses are over hyped?

Tell the Muse!

OMG! These are so cute!
I'm really lemming for the red one.:D I wish american and european brands would start selling lipglosses with spatula applicator, it's a lot more hygienic!

Cool! Im am heading to Singapore in February - if you know which stores your friend buys them at, or where I can get it in Singapore, please let me know, I'm only there for 3 days before moving up to Malaysia and Thailand and would totally kill for some shopping tips!

hello there emajames :)

Awesome! Sadly, Etude House is not available within Singapore however if you're going to Malaysia an Etude House has opened but I'm unsure where sadly. Do check out the EH website and maybe details are there :)

I wish I could give further info on Singapore shopping but I've never been. I can offer shopping tips for Thailand and Japan if that's helpful :)

I suggest heading to Cozycot and asking around as all the girls are extremely helpful and 99% are located in 'pore :)

Hope this helps!

I will be posting my travel itinerary on my blog shortly - if you have time I would totally appreciate it if you could post any tips you have on any of the places I'm going!

I ended up cutting Singapore out of my trip thats cool - I imagine Etude House is somewhere in KL. I will find it!

hi emajames,

There is no Etude House in Singapore yet, but there is one in Malaysia. It's located in KL, in a shopping mall call Sunway Pyramid. :)
