Etude House Color Lips-Fit PK003 & BE101

Aren't Sulli and Krystal great endorsement models? They stop you in your tracks and pull you in effortlessly...

Name: Etude House 에뛰드하우스 Color Lips-Fit 컬러 립스핏
Price: ₩ 9,000 for 10 g
Made in: Korea

Scents seem to be a big part of the Etude experience and this is where I will start off this review. Color Lips-Fit gives out the exact same scent as a Justea White Grape Green Tea drink (any white grape drink for those who don't have access to Justea). Even thinking about it is enough to tempt me into getting a can. You and I both know what I am buying when I pop over to the convenience store in a little while!

PK003 Fantasy Fit Pink 판타지 핏 핑크 is a pinkish imperial red.

BE101 See-Thru Fit Beige 시스루 핏 베이지 is muted pumpkin.

The colour payoff is remarkable! One swipe and you could tame the most pigmented of lips. Now, if only the colour range is more wearable, we would have a winner on our hands. The colours available are a bit too out there for my skintone although I could probably make OR201 work (that is a story for another day).

They dry completely matte – the finish that you would expect from a matte topcoat or a matte polish - thanks to the addition of Silicone Oil and Silky Powder in the formulation. I know it is completely bizarre to compare a lip tint to a nail polish but that is the first thought that came to me when I observed my reflection in the mirror.

PK003 - BE101

These tints can withstand some light snacking and a drink or two but not a full meal. They come off in patches which is not the most attractive look so do be sure to top up with a fresh layer.

Nice ad and the product sounds interesting. Matte finish is definitely not for me though. Thank you for the review!

as always, etude house products' packaging is so pretty and i like the colors you got in here. I like the Fantasy Fit Pink more. I think the shade will suit my skintone :D

Oh, I didn't expect them to be opaque and matte. There is glossy top coat as well!
I think deeper shade look more flattering in this shade. RD301 looks quite pretty to me. :)

This does not look like a finish my painfully dry lips can wear, thanks so much for the review! Also.... I have the collar Sulli's wearing in the promo o.O Totally unintentional, but now I'm going to look like a fangirl, lol

whoaa I love how pigmented those lip products are! Am definitely feeling a matte lip for spring this year, and these are gorgeous.

The color is very pigmented, but I'm not a big fan of matte finish on anything - it looks like it would be very drying on the lips!
