Etude House Lips x Tint Twin Shot Review is a recent release from the brand and I really really do admire the Korean’s beauty brands constant release of new interesting products, packaging and formula. No Western brand to me can even begin to keep up. So I do love a gimmick, something I have never seen before.
This Tint Twin Shot is a product devised for the Korean love of ombre lips. If you watch K-Drama you will notice that many women wear a bright shot of colour in the middle of the lips – it’s a nice way of wearing a bright without being overwhelmed.
Etude House Twin Show has a matte cream tint on one end and a closer shiny gloss at the other end.
So the side without the writing is the soft mousse tint which has a matte effect (but not a horrible super dead matte look). The ‘Shot’ is the second colour in the other part of the container – you press the button 2-3 times and a small amount is discharged. The idea is you can use this on the inside of the lips to create a graduation.
Technically there’s a few ways you can eat this. Just the mousse side, just the glossier side, as a graduation or mixed together.
Now, the reality of this product.
As I suspected the mechanism of theis product isn’t perfect.
When you click the end for the second shade it takes a lot more than 2-3 clicks to get the product out (this was the case for both of them). When it finally appears a ton of it spurts out…ugh. And the colours mix and become quite muddy as some product leaks out in to the second shade. Mmm it’s a bit of a mess.
BR401 is a rose beige on one side and a brighter rose brown shade on the other side. It’s very wearable.
PK001 is a hot pink and light pink. The night pink is quite matte and the hot pink is a blue based pink.
Below I am wearing these colours. I tried to make the graduation more obvious but it wasn’t that easy…something awkward about mixing two shades together in that way. In the end I just ended up mixing the shades for the BR401:
The pink worked a bit better for the graduated effect probably because the shades contrast more.
I paid about £9 for these which is more than they are worth really…the mechanism is very very clever indeed but it doesn’t work well. The colours are fine though, I particularly like the pink!
Would you do a graduated lip?
