Here's the five newest additions to my huge and growing collection. An Aritaum Honey Melting Lip Tint, another Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint, an Etude House Dear My Jelly Lips Talk (the packaging makes me feel like a princess, *sighs* ~), an Etude House Dear My Wish Lips Talk (can you really turn down a bow? Like really?) and an Innisfree Vivid Tint Rouge.

The Aritaum Honey Melting Tint; which I have in the shade #2 Sugar Syrup; has sturdy black packaging with a slanted, flat retractable product. (What do you call it, cause it's not exactly a bullet..? Anyway.) The name of the shade is clearly printed on the other side of the cap; which is the exact colour of the product; and it smells like peach hi-chews. Those amazing lollies, *sighs* it brings back so many memories.
The Etude House Dear My Jelly Lips Talk; which I have in JPK002; has a really thick and sturdy lid (thicker than your average western lipstick lid) and a bullet that has the really cute heart swirly thing above their logo engraved in the bullet. It's a nice, extra princessy touch that I love. The actual packaging is a pearly white colour with this cute bead like accent around where the edge of the lid rests, in the colour of the bullet. Smells identical to their Kissful Tint Choux, sweet and jelly bean-like, but not really. iT JUST SMELLS GOOD.
The Etude House Dear My Wish Lips Talk; which I have in BE102; has a really thick and sturdy lid like the previous product. The bullet is flat and slightly raised unlike a typical lipstick bullet which I don't really mind, although some don't like it for accuracy, but meh. The packaging is really nice, and the cUtE LIttLE bOw how does one resist? Doesn't really have a scent, but you can pick up on hints of rose.

The Innisfree Vivid Tint Rouge; which I have in #10 Raspberry Red; doesn't have the cutest packaging. It's not super adorable like Etude House or Tony Moly packaging, but I like it. It reflects the natural, earthy theme that Innisfree carries, and I like how the colour can be seen. It's practical, and it's all about the product inside right? The applicator is a doe foot applicator with a little dip in the middle to pick up more product. It holds the right amount of product for my lips and on the inside it has a really nice scraper that the applicator pops out of, not bringing too little or too much product, which I really appreciate. It has a subtle sweet, fruity scent.
The Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint; which I have in both RD301 and OR202; are probably my favourite lip tint. The packaging is fresh and cute, the applicator is a typical doe foot applicator and it smells like asian grape lollies. Mmm, my favourite.

Now for the performance, opinions etc. ^-^
Aritaum Honey Melting Tint in Sugar Syrup is a beautiful colour, is moisturising and melts into my lips with a glossy finish. It wears well for 2-3 hours without eating, and after that the colour sinks into the lines of my lips and clings to the dry patches of my lips that start to form, which isn't a pretty sight. It's something that would need to be wiped off and reapplied, well at least for me. It doesn't stain my lips, but it does tint my lips with a nice sheen and a lip balm like formula. I like it when I'm not wearing it for a long portion of time.
Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint in OR202, despite it's packaging colour and the colour of the applicator, it applies on my lips in a sheer peachy pink, evening out my lip colour. It's a subtle hint of colour on my quite pigmented lips, and it's extremely natural. It stays for 4-5 hours without eating. It's not the most moisturising tint, but it doesn't transfer and stays put. I love the red shade for when I want a brighter option.
Etude House Dear My Jelly Lips Talk in PK002 is described as a sheer lipstick with a high shine. It really is a sheer lipstick and the colour is definitely buildable. It gives my lips a nice shine, a nice fuchsia tint that isn't too bright pink (as I'm more of a rose-brown pink, natural lip colour girl who's trying to be more daring and out there with my lip colours). It's super moisturising and reminds me of the Kissful Tint Choux in a lipstick form that doesn't stain as much.
Etude House Dear My Wish Lips Talk in BE102 is the smoothest lipstick I've ever used, literally. It glides on my lips like ACTUAL BUTTER. IT IS THAT SMOOTH, NO JOKE. Not only does it glide on my lips like butter, it keeps my lips as moisturised as a lip balm, has the pigmentation of a really good quality lipstick, and wears off evenly. The shade I bought wasn't the most out there colour, but I will definitely be getting more. BEST. LIPSTICK. I'VE. EVER. TRIED. If you are a lip product junkie like me and don't own these yet, you need them. Trust me, you really do.
Innisfree Vivid Tint Rouge in #10 Raspberry Red is pigmented, moisturising and has a nice gloss. The colour is slightly darker on my pigmented lips, but I don't mind. It does transfer, but it does stain my lips. Only thing I don't like is that when I smack my lips together it tastes like soap. Other than that, I love it.

If you've gotten anything out of this, I hope it's that I need help and self control when it comes to lip products, which I'm probably going to refuse. Hope this review helped at all, and if it didn't, meh, I'm off to buy more things to review! xD (I'm kind of broke, so I'll probably go read heaps of review and add things to my wishlist instead, don't try and deny you don't do this for hours).
In other news, a bird pooped on my head yesterday. Wishing you luck (that you don't get from a bird pooping on you, because that gives me anything BUT luck, and the instant need to shower and scrub myself ten times). On a happier note, I won some fabulous MOR goodies from a competition, which definitely made me happy!
Bye for now!
