If I had to pick an item I was excited about from the Etude House Miss Tangerine Collection it would definitely be the Soda Tints.
Just the name gets me hyped! I’m thinking fizzy, yummy flavors that will stain my lips a brilliant shade of color.
Wanna check ’em out?
A lip stain available in two shades released with the Etude House Miss Tangerine Collection.
At first glance these reminded me of the DuWop Lip Venom V. The formula is basically made up of two separate layers of oil and water which can be shaken up to form a lip stain. I do question whether this is really necessary or just a fun little extra, either way it makes for interesting makeup fun.
As you can see from the photo the formula starts out with the actual stain on the bottom of the tube. It kinda has a lava lamp effect as is but once you shake the stain over rides both the water and oil to form a solid shade.
Formula feels pretty much like any liquid stain. Not any more moisturizing or different than anything else I tried in the past, just pretty basic but obviously a bit more watery and runny compared to say lip venom plus it wears crazy long.
The product is available in two shades, Tangerine and Cranberries. I liked Cranberries the best as it gives a nice deep shade of reddish berry to lips. I thought Tangerine was somewhat unwearable sadly as it’s a warmer shade of tangerine that isn’t quite that flattering, kinda reminds me of iodine.
The smell is absolutely to die for but that’s where it ends…
In complete contrast to their gorgeous scent they taste absolutely rancid.
Cranberries has a soda-y sweet berry scent and Tangerine has a orange-y tangerine smell. I was so hyped about the sweet scent that I assumed it led to the taste as well. Not the case.
They taste salty and bitter! OMG it’s really awful and such a contradiction to their sweet smell. I’m wondering if I got a batch that was off!? Whatever the case may be these taste really, really bad.
- Those who like lip stains.
- Those wanting a warmer shade of tangerine for lips.
- Those wanting a long wearing lip color.
- Those wanting a lightweight hint of color for lips!
- Those sensitive to flavors or scents (the sweet scent might not be your thing if you’re sensitive to scents and the bitter, salty taste, well, that isn’t really anyone’s bag now is it?).
- Those who aren’t interested in online shopping, airmail shipping, etc…(these are available in Korean and a few select Asian countries but not the US).
Even though Tangerine failed to work for me I was prepared to Muse Approve these for purchase but the taste is so bad that I just feel like I’ll be tossing them aside. I’m thinking of purchasing another set just our of curiosity if the taste was a fluke. I’m literally left feeling thirsty after application, like I had salty fries or something.
Anyone try ’em?
Get the salty, bitter taste?
