Now if you're following me on Instagram, you may recall that I received some lovely Christmas gifts from Etude House Philippines. I'm now going through the goodies one by one, and the product that I decided to try first is the Rosy Tint Lips - Etude House's new line of lip products which was released last Fall. I've been eyeing this baby long before they reached Philippine shores, and here it is finally!

|You might think this is a lip gloss...|
Because of the plastic squeeze tube packaging, I won't be surprised if you'd mistake this for a lip gloss at first glance. But no, they're actually lip stains - highly pigmented, creamy texture, and with a lovely matte finish. If you're familiar with NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, the texture and the 'feel' is pretty much the same.

|Shade number 1, Before Blossom.|
|And here's the swatch.|
There are eight shades in the Rosy Tint Lips collection. What I have here is shade number 1 - otherwise known as Before Blossom - a warm shade of red that's very wearable and not as 'loud' and shocking as the swatch appears to be. The color is buildable, and lasts about four to five hours without eating or drinking.

This product has a faint rose scent which I particularly like. I don't think this will be an issue for those who prefer unscented lip products as the rose scent is hardly noticeable. This lip stain's formula is lightweight and non-drying, despite the matte finish. Oh, and the price? They sell for Php 478 (around $10) a pop at Etude House branches nationwide.
What I love:
- The oh-so-pretty box!
- Buildable color.
- Lightweight formula.
- Velvet, matte finish.
- Lovely, rose scent.
- Doesn't feel dry on the lips.
- Several shades to choose from.
- Perfect for gradient lips.
- Can also be used as a cheek tint.
What you might not like:
- The 'not-so-squeezable' tube.
