I have tried and reviewed 2 lip balms from this range by Etude House. I had good experience with these lip balms and gave it a thumbs-up from my end. I use the brown and red shade lip liners the most because, they complement almost all my lipsticks. I enjoyed wearing the eye liner from the same range, so decided to try out lip liner as well. Apart from these lip liners by Etude house, I also bought mascara, makeup removers and other skin care products. I love this brand’s skincare product and makeup range because they are perfect for subtle looks and have goodness of essential ingredients.
Automatic Lip Liner to define lip shape with a creamy formula.
An auto-type creamy lip liner for long-lasting, glide-on precision. The silky texture prevents your lip liner smudging or fading and makes it easy to shape and define your lips.
Twist the liner to come out a little amount of liner and apply by following lip line.
Do not come out too much, it may cause the product broken.
My Experience with Etude House Soft Touch Auto Lip Liner Real Rose:
The product comes in a usual twist-up lip liner packaging. It has a tube that holds the product and a cap to protect it. The twist-up mechanism seems sturdy and has not given up on me yet, at least not for the previous two shades I have tried (most twist-up pencils do stop working eventually). The quantity is not appreciable and the product will run out soon with regular use.
I enjoy trying the products by Etude House. It has some amazing skincare products and that is why I have started trying out their makeup as well. In the past, I have tried and reviewed several skincare and makeup products by this brand. Most of them performed well and received good reviews from me. The makeup products from this brand perform well, they are affordable and do not harm my skin. They have more natural finish and enhance features in a subtler manner as compared to American brands. Their makeup products are more dramatic and not meant for a natural finish to face. These lip liners by Etude House are very creamy and opaque.
The shade’s name is “Real Rose” but it appears more like a wine red than rose red. It gives a smooth, streak-less application but not in one go – it is creamier and smoother than the eye liner from the same range. The eye liner tugged and pulled on eye lids in an unpleasant manner and caused discomfort. The lip liners, on the other hand, glides smoother like a gel lip liner and is not too drying. In a couple of strokes, the full intensity of color is revealed. It covers my pigmented lips well but unlike the previous two shades I reviewed, this shade requires multiple coats to get an even coat of color.
The staying power is good so long as we don’t consume oily or greasy food. It acts as perfect primer for lipstick application. This color can be worn alone at least for my skin tone because, wine shade suits me. Layering it with a lip color will prolong the wear time because, on its own the color does start to dull after a few hours and reapplication is required. It can be easily removed with a makeup removing wipe. It does not have a strong fragrance and does not irritate my lips.
Pros of Etude House Soft Touch Auto Lip Liner Real Rose:
- Affordable and is worth a try for those who wear lip liner on regular basis.
- Can be worn alone or underneath a lipstick – but it does not last long if worn alone.
- Prolongs the wear time of a lipstick.
- Does not have a strong fragrance or smell too “waxey”. It is an essential lip product feature for me.
- After multiple coats, it gives an even finish.
- Has other color variants as well.
Cons of Etude House Soft Touch Auto Lip Liner Real Rose:
- Availability can be an issue for some but some Korean websites do ship to India as well or there are some third-party sellers that sell Korean brands.
- Not as natural as Etude House skin care products and does contain chemicals.
- This shade needs multiple coats to get an even finish.
- It is not rose red rather it is more of wine red.
IMBB Rating: 4/5
