Etude House 55 Kissful Tint Chou Review

I absolutely love staining my lips and cheeks! Stains work so well at giving a natural, flushed looks to both lips and cheeks.

I’m particularly partial to staining my lips prior to gloss as it gives that extra pop to gloss! One of my very favorite products for staining my lips was from Bourjois Paris and came in a pen applicator! I was so sad they stopped carrying these soon after their original release.

I’ve since been through a slew of stains but I’ve located a new favorite when I recently purchased Etude House 55 Kissful Tint Chou!

Etude House 55 Kissful Tint Chou is available in four shades which are a pink, red, orange, and sheer pink.

I tried the red shade only but I’ll be going back shortly for more colors as it’s a very good stain. The stain comes in a cute little tube with squeeze applicator. Dab a small amount on your finger and smooth on or apply directly from the tube. The formula is a silicon like texture that smooths on dry and leaves behind a pinch of color bringing blah lips to life with a beautiful flush of red! This is beautiful with or without gloss! I like the interesting texture as although it’s a gel formula it still feels rather dry when applied which makes it ideal for lips as it doesn’t apply in a streaky mess! The stain lasts for a good four hours or so before fading even when drinking or eating which is great as all I have to do is touch up my gloss and go as my lips are already nicely flushed with color!

As you can see below the color choice I made was quite red however I thought it looked quite natural on and not scary or kool-aid like in appearance. My lips are quite red already however this enhances the natural color of my lips!

I really liked this one and it’s one of Etude House’s better items. It also happens to be extremely cheap at $4 USD. I paid retail price as I have a friend in Korea who purchased it for me however I’ve seen it on E-bay ranging from $9.99-$12.99 USD and I think it’s well worth that price even though the tube is tiny!



I’m Muse Approving this one! Definately loves it!

    This look pretty nice, I think it’s in the stores in my place. The baby base is out, so I think this should too!

    But I am officially broke. I need to wait next month! ๐Ÿ˜›

    Hey Izzy,

    Hope you’ve recovered and are feeling much better!

    Are you referring to the Bourjois Hi Tech Rouge lip tint? If so, it’s available over here. I haven’t tried it out yet but your review makes me think about doing so! Give me a holler if you need any of it!

    I have strawberry chou and it’s my favorite lip product so far, it keeps my lips so moisture and colored at the same time. When my friend got this for me, it was last chou product of Etude store ๐Ÿ˜€ I know that this item is so popular in Korea right now. Thanks for the review.

    Hi! I love this product! The smell like bubblegum/cherry but don’t like the taste afterwards tastes like petroleum jelly. Do you know other brand that’s very similar to this? Thanks!
