Review: Etude House Dear Darling Water Gel Tints (Ice Cream Tints!)

The moment I laid eyes on the Etude House Dear Darling Water Gel Tints I knew I HAD to have them (and in every single color too)! I mean c'mon, it's lip tints in the shape of popsicles. How could one resist?
 
Etude House, known for their adorable product packaging designs, blew everyone out of the water this summer as these tints became one of the most popular products on the market and was constantly sold out. Luckily, my boyfriend was visiting Korea at the time and he was able to hunt them down for me. :D I picked up every single shade, so lets get into the review and swatches!

The Dear Darling Water Gel Tints are water-based lip tints that come housed in popsicle shaped packaging. They're about the same size of an average nail polish and are really small and adorable! The body of the bottle is clear plastic, so it's easy to see the true color of the tint from the outside of the bottle.
