I feel like it's been forever since I've written a beauty review! A lot of you had requested that I review and swatch the Etude lipsticks I hauled from CosmeticLove, as well as the Skinfood salmon eye products (coming up soon), so here you go! Hope you guys enjoy :)
ETUDE HOUSE: Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk Lipsticks
The Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk collection of lipsticks from Etude House comes in 24 different shades and retails for approximately $12-15 dollars online. The lipsticks are featured and promoted in Etude's "Kiss Note" CF web drama featuring 2NE1's Sandara Park and the boys of SHINee.
Consistent with Etude's cutesy product design, these lipsticks are nothing short of adorable! The pretty pink tubes are adorned with a bow and definitely stand out amongst my other lipsticks. The actual lipstick itself is also stamped with Etude's logo on the side.
It was tempting to add all of the colors to my cart, but I eventually managed to narrow down my choices to just two: BE101 and OR204.
Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk in BE101
Pink brown-toned nude, semi-matte finish
Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk in OR204
Pink toned coral, semi-matte finish
- Very pigmented
- Wide variety of colors
- Super cute packaging and design
- Fruity scent
- Drying on the lips
- Tends to settle in fine lines
- Wear time - average, about 3-4 hours
My Rating: 3/5 stars - I love the super girly design of the lipsticks, the excellent pigmentation, and how both colors look on me, but quality wise, I think they are pretty comparable to some drugstore brands, such as Revlon. The semi-matte finish of these also doesn't help in providing any moisture and the color tends to settle in the fine lines of my lips.
Have you tried any of the Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk lipsticks?
