I’m sooo happy Etude House remade their Twin Shot Lips Tint. I remember trying the original and the product design was a TOTAL failure.
A #Kbeautyfail if you will. It made no sense and the gradient never came out well for me, and the tint colors contaminated each other…just a mess!!! Thankfully the product design team figured out an easy and simple solution. Dual sided tints!
Whether you like the gradient lip style or not, it’s a really popular lip look here in South Korea. With that, let’s go on a journey to see if this product is really worth your hard earned money.
The Twin Shot Lips Tint is great for those who want to get a two color gradient lip without having to carry two separate tints or lipsticks. There are a variety of colors so no matter what age you are, you’re bound to find the one that fits your style best! I can honestly say that the Twin Shot Lips Tint is a great product that everyone should try. Even if you’re new to wearing lip tint, you can find a color that is subtle and looks more natural.

What’s great about this special dual sided lip tint is that the colors are really vivid! They’re really bright and apply a smooth color to your lips. For lighter colors or colors that are closer to one’s natural lip color, you might have to add a little extra to make the color stand out more. Also, the tint shot colors are quite vivid. A little goes a long way! If you apply too much of the tint shot color, you might loose a bit of the mousse color.
With the pigmentation review above, I also give this a pretty solid rating for coverage. Since the mousse tint is more matte, it delivers full coverage to your lips. The tint shot is more viscous and really helps bring out the color of the mousse tint if it’s not over worked. The two colors work together great to give your lips a more voluminous and plump look.
For me, the mousse tint is a bit strange feeling especially when you first apply it. It’s difficult for me to explain clearly. At first, it kind of sits on top of the lip and doesn’t absorb into your skin. After a minute or so, the feeling gets better. It’s a bit more matte too compared to the tint shot. The tint shot itself is more glossy and feels really creamy. I believe the two textures really balance each other out. Also, since it is a more oily tint, your lips will never feel dried out!
This tint lasted well though drinks even with or without a straw! However, it doesn’t stay on too well when you’re eating, but that’s a given for any oil based lip tint or lipstick. Not all of it came off either, there was still a bit of color. Plus, this tint is super easy to apply so it didn’t bother me to do it again.
There is really one way you can use the tint, but I’m sure you can use it in at least two ways.
Method 1: Apply the mousse tint all over the lip. I let mine dry/sit for not longer than a minute. I like to give it time to settle on my lips, but this is optional. Next, place 3-4 dots of the tint shot to the inside of your lower and upper lip. Usually I place two dots on my lower lip towards the edges, and one on my upper lip in the center. Then, gently (I mean gently!) rub your lips together until the colors fade into a gradient formation.
*If you’re worried about the tint shot over powering the mousse shot, use your finger or a lip brush to blend the colors together. I always carry wet tissue on hand for this and any other makeup emergency
Method 2: Just use the mousse tint! If you really like the mousse tint color, then why not wear it solo? No one is going to be upset if you do. There is no makeup police!…that I know of.
Since this isn’t a water based tint, it’s really easy to remove with any makeup remover or lip tint remover. If you make a mistake and try to fix it right away before it dries (which it never fully will since it’s oil based), you can use wet tissue.
Like I stated before, this is a new product design from a previous flop of a product. It is beyond better! It’s must faster and easier to use. The dot applicator for the tint shot is amazing because it lets you control how much tint shot you want to use. On the box the Twin Shot Lips Tint comes in, all directions, descriptions, and ingredients for both the mousse tint and tint shot are written in Korean and English. The tint tubes twist firmly into the center cap where they share the dual ended tint applicators so you don’t have to worry about any spillage.
This can honestly be stored anywhere. I just wouldn’t put it where it could be exposed to extreme heat or cold.
