Holika Holika PRO:BEAUTY Enamel Volip Tint review

Holika Holika Enamel Volip Tint is widely popular in Korea as an affordable alternative to Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Tint-In-Oil. Some say the Holika Holika is even better. I can tell you these are pretty darn good if not indeed better than those fancy YSL tubes. I have two colors to show you today - Muse Pink (PK001) & Silhouette Rose (PK002).

The packaging is nothing fancy but clean and functional. I like that it is color coded and a nice size to carry around. 



It comes with a slightly tilted doe foot applicator that is very convenient to use. It gets a perfect amount out so the opening of the tube always stays clean.

The formula is awesome. It does not leave ironclad stains behind like PeriPera Peri's Ink, but it still deposits enough color while being super moisturizing on the lips. Because it wears off in the most natural way, you can reapply carefree throughout the day. The finish is quite shiny as the "Enamel" part of the name suggests. Holika Holika Enamel Volip Tint is lightly scented and does not have any taste. 


Muse Pink is one of the core colors. It is a cool toned pink with a vibrancy which I often call "a standard pink in lip tint". I probably own a dozen of the same shade but I love that now I have a very hydrating option.

Silhouette Rose is an LE from a fall collection but seems to be still in production. These so-called "dried rose" shades are all the craze in Korea. Unfortunately, they often look aging and wash me out because of the warm brown undertones (just like how NARS Dolce Vita looks on me betraying my adoration for the color). BUT, Silhouette Rose looks fine on me because the base is pink! As you see, the color leans pinker on my lips than on my arm. Love this elegantly natural lip color.

Holika Holika Enamel Volip Tint is also great to wear over a traditional gel tint. This way, I can easily enjoy lasting colors with great comfort and shine.


Both the core collection and the two LE colors are available on eBay with virtually no markup (here & here). It is a bit of a wait for me as most sellers are based in Korea but they often offer free shipping.


What are your thoughts on these moisturizing tints? Are they the same as good old lip gloss or do they have their own merits?

  1. These look really pretty on you and it's good to here that they're a much more affordable dupe for the Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Tint-In-Oil.

    1. Thanks! This is certainly a very good one even compared to higher-ends. I love that they offer more complex grownup shades as well. :)

  2. I have no good suggestions on moisturizing tint and had been using benefit lip tint forever. These are both such lovely shades! I'm hoping to make a trip to Korea and will need to ask you for makeup suggestions then!

    1. Hey, Benetint is a classic! All lip tints origin from this magical juice. ;D I would be overwhelmed myself if I visit Korea. Haha. Let me know if you need online shopping suggestions, though. ;D

    1. Thanks, Sonia! I like the whole color range of Volip Tint. Other shades are quite complex and look high-end. Do check them out if you get a chance. :)
