Since I was overwhelmed by yesterday’s giveaway from La Bonita, I wanted to review this two Dear Darling Tints from Etude House. Both of them are in the same shade PK002 and I was wondering what was the difference between them.


I first thought both of them are the same shade on a different packaging. But one was water-based while the other is oil-based.  The Water Gel Tint is more of the reddish color with a strawberry scent. The Oil Tint is a coral-pink shade that smells like a peach-apricot and costs almost double the price compared to the water gel tint.

For my tone, I prefer the red color since the coral is for the cooler tone.

This isn’t a paid/sponsored post. Items are won from a giveaway competition. What works for me may not work for you.


    1. Oh thank you for that one! I got my sources from good guide and other sites which say Titanium dioxide has health hazard. Most of our products should maybe used moderately. Thank you for your informative comment! Have a good day 😊
