Welcome to Cosmetics Arena. This is my first post here. This blog is created for reviews of different products across the globe.  
To give you a juicy starter, I would like to introduce Etude House Dear Darling Water Tint. Etude House is a Korean Brand. These water tints are available in 3 shades namely Cherry, Strawberry and Orange.

Water tint is a new term. Koreans are a big fan of water tints. They believe that lips should look natural, so they apply mostly water-based lip gloss that has long staying power. Water tints give a very natural shade. Now let us take a look at whether this product is up to the mark or not.

How does Etude House Dear Darling Water Tint look like?

The product is mainly water-based formula. It has a warm red tone. I would not say the intense cherry colour but definitely a magnificent red shade which is suitable for every skin tone.
The bottle is made of glass and looks very stylish. But you have to handle it very carefully. Overall the packaging looks quite modern.
The lip applicator is awesome and very easy to handle. Glides smoothly on lips.
Price $4.30 (approximately Rs. 300 without shipping charge)

Ingredients of Etude House Dear Darling Water Tint

I found the ingredients quite harmless. But you can check the ingredients individually from 
Water, Butylene Glycol, Trehalose, Glyceryl Caprylate, Dehydroacetic Acid, Orange 4 (Ci 15510), Punica Granatum Extract, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Extract, Red 33 (Ci 17200), Sapindus Trifoliatus Fruit Extract, Pentylene Glycol, Peg-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil and Fragrance. 
Let me jump directly to the pros and cons of this product.


    1. Attractive innovative packaging
    2. The colour is superb
    3. Stays for a long time. Almost for 6 to 8 hours with light to a moderate meal.
    4. Waterproof formula.
    5. Gives a natural tone to the lips.
    6. Available in beautiful shades
    7. Easily available on Amazon


  1. Glass packaging, so one should handle it carefully.
  2. Moisturise lips before application otherwise it may settle in the dry flakes
  3. Glossy at first but after a few hours, only the stain is left, though strong tint but not glossy.
  4. More shades could have made this one vibrating.
Here is how the product looks like overall. 
I hope you like the review. I would definitely recommend this product. I have already replaced my tacky lip glosses with this amazing product. What about you?
Take care and live life to the fullest.
