Review: Etude House Sugar Tint Balm

I find myself loving lip balms lately. I guess it’s the hot, humid summer weather we’re experiencing here in Manila that prompts me to trade my lipstick for balm on an ordinary day (read: laundry day, errand day, mom duties kinda day). Hihihi.

Here’s my latest discovery from Etude House, the Sugar Tint Balm.

Sugar Tint Balm 4g at P498.

EtudeHouse_SugarTintBalmEtude House Sugar Tint Balm comes in its usual cute box.

There are eight shades to choose from:

#01 PKK001 Strawberry Milk

#02 RD301 Cranberry Pie

#03 RD302 Apple Kiss

#04 OR201 Tomato Ketchup

#05 PK002 Pink Macaron

#06 PK003 Grapefruit Tea

#07 PP501 Grape Jam

#08 RD303 Blackberry Jam

I got to try two of the eight shades & I gotta say, I like them both.


The actual balm is housed in a sleek tube marked with the brand’s logo & cute type font. The twist cap prevents unwanted stain spill- a convenient packaging for women who like to throw in their make up inside their bag.


Etude House Sugar Tint Balm #6 PK003, Grapefruit Tea.


I love the light shade of pinkish peach. It gives the right amount of blush on my lips.


Etude House Sugar Tint Balm #2 RD301, Cranberry Pie.


Β The Cranberry Pie is more pigmented than the Grapefruit Tea. Two swipes and it covers like a lipstick. See how much pigmented it is? It doesn’t hurt that these balms come in a fruity scent.


Three things that I like about Etude House Sugar Tint Balm:

1. It glides smoothly and gives a silky feel, one swipe is all you need.

2. It is infused with jojoba oil, argan oil and vitamin E making your lips moisturized.

3. Pigmented enough that it can pass as a lipstick.

Plus points for its fruity scent!

Etude House Sugar Lip Balm is available in Etude House stores & counters nationwide. See list of stores HERE.
