I think buying and using lipsticks and tints are two completely different hobbies. I always liked purchasing lip balms, glosses, etc, but would almost never actually use them. All of that changed in 2020, when I basically couldn’t use them even if I wanted to (because of constant mask wearing). Now that a lot of the restrictions in the USA are lifted, I have discovered a new love for lip makeup and actually apply it pretty often. The forbidden fruit is sweet, right?
Etude House makes pretty affordable products that are still very nice. I started with Etude House Fixing Tint in 05 Midnight Mauve and liked it so much that I later got it the 04 Ginger Milk Tea as well. These and other colors are available on Jolse.
How to use
Apply to the lips
Let dry (only takes a few moments)
Enjoy your day
The tint promises long lasting, mask-proof wear with a matte finish that won’t dry the lips. I do not notice much of a scent and there is no taste.

Etude House Fixing Tint is almost perfect. Almost, because it does highlight dry areas on the lips. It doesn’t necessarily cause dryness, but if your lips aren’t in the best condition to begin with, expect the flaky parts to be more noticeable while wearing this. It’s easily fixed with some chapstick a little while before tint application.
This is definitely long lasting, as promised. The tint is easy to apply and blend out (if you prefer a gradient look), but once it sets it’s pretty much there to stay. Sometimes I dab the very top layer off with a tissue, because that’s the part of the tint that might transfer to mugs and water bottles. Once that’s gone, there’s no more transfer and the color lasts pretty much all day, even while drinking hot coffee, eating lunch, etc. I’m very pleased with this and just have to remember to be more consistent with lip balms and sleeping masks to make sure my lips are as smooth as possible so the tint looks its best.
