Just when I thought I had all the colours I wanted for my lips, I saw these new colours and thought that I absolutely had to get them ! For lip tint colours, I feel as though these colours are a little bit difficult to find . In general a lot of lip tints are bright, but I really like the fact that these have a deep sort of undertone to it . I know Winter is ending here, but I think these colours are still good to keep in the arsenal if you feel like you want to look a bit cool and mature .
The ETUDE HOUSE Dear Darling Tint line actually come in a a huge variety of colours, but these were newly released together . However recently ETUDE HOUSE also released more for the Dear Darling Tint line called "Wonder Fun Park Dear Darling Soda Tint", so I guess you can say these colours are semi-new now ? haha . I'm not sure about the new Soda Tint's since they seem quite light in colour, but I know when they released these four new colours, ETUDE HOUSE stated that these are meant to have a longer lasting wear than it's original Dear Darling Tint line .
The Dear Darling Tint line is on average $6 USD, so yes, they are super cheap . The new colours that are reviewed in this is RD305 Jujube Red (RD305 대추레드), PK003 Sweet Potato Red (PK003 고무마레드), RD304 Hot Pepper Red (RD304 핫페퍼레드) and BK801 Vampire Red (BK801 뱀파이어레드) . I know that I've said it before but the fact that these have a deep coloured undertone really separates it from the other colours that are out in the market today, plus they are at a really cheap price compared to other similar lip tint colours out there .

This line in general does have a pretty impressive wear, just as long as you don't eat anything that has oil in it . It lasts through things like sushi, sandwiches, or drinking . It's cool to see that it doesn't leave much stain on the cup either . The really intense colour of these lip tint's won't last but it will still leave colour on your lips so it prevents you from looking dead at least haha . The only major con of this product is that it can be pretty drying, so you'll definitely want to remember to have some lip balm in hand when you're using this product .
Ok, now onto individual colours !
RD305 Jujube Red (RD305 대추레드)
This colour is a deep red that's like a stronger version of the next shade, PK003 Sweet Potato Red . It's a good colour that is on the darker side, and it looks really natural as well . It's a good colour for anyone one who wants to look like an academic, nerdy or smart haha . It's such a flattering natural colour in my opinion .
PK003 Sweet Potato Red (PK003 고무마레드)
This colour was the most difficult to find ! It's a super popular colour since it's a really excellent dusty rose sort of shade . It's the lightest in the line and in general, when I see this shade I generally think that it looks very sweet . I think it's a great natural colour in Autumn and Winter, but I think the gradient of this looks really lovely all year round ! If you want an everyday colour that's not very bright I definitely recommend you get this colour .
RD304 Hot Pepper Red (RD304 핫페퍼레드)
This tint is this Hollywood sort of red with some extra shimmer to really perfect the look . When I realised that it was going to be a bit sparkly I was not a fan of buying this, but when I tried it I absolutely fell in love with how subtle the little sparkle is . This lip tint is so glamorous and it's so flattering and eye-catching . You would definitely want to have this in your arsenal for those glamorous formal or party events ! This colour is also the brightest in the line .
BK801 Vampire Red (BK801 뱀파이어레드)
When I was getting this colour I really doubted whether I was going to enjoy it as well, but, to my pleasant surprise, I actually think this is my favourite one from the line ! Not only because it is hella cool and the gradient is so flattering, but this colour is so different from anything that's out in the current market as well . It's versatility from gradient to full lip is also a huge tick in my books . If you want a a safe edgy look I definitely recommend you get this tint colour ! Also did I mention I f r e a k i n g l o v e t h e g r a d i e n t . #TrustMeGirlsAndBoys #GetThisLipTint
Apart from the fact that it can be drying, the dark undertone of these new colours is the aesthetic that I've really been trying to find in the past few months, so I was so glad that I bought these colours . Not only that, but what I really like about this line is the fact that it's so damn cheap . I know some other lip tints that offer the same colour for $20, and usually I'm ok with buying lip tints for that price, but the quality of this product makes me think that is $14 too much haha . I love, love, love these colours so for anyone that doesn't want some bright lip tints, you must check these colours out .
