Review: Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk - BE101 & OR204

Wednesday, August 1, 2012

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 Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk Lipstick


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.

PROS:
  • Very pigmented
  • Wide variety of colors
  • Super cute packaging and design
  • Fruity scent
 CONS:
  • 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?

  8. The packaging is so cute! I don't mind the wear time, but the fact that it settles into lines is a little sad.

  9. These lipsticks have such pretty packaging, I love the pink box and the cute little bow on the lipstick tube! (I'm a sucker for little details like that.) Love that soft pink, Im more of a pink than red lips type of girl, so this is right up my alley. :) It looks lovely on you!

  10. Great review! The packaging of these lipsticks look adorable.

  11. Never tried any Etude products apart from one of their BB creams! I love your lip swatches~ They look great :D the colours really suit you too ^^

    ReplyDelete
  12. etude house lippies do tend to settle on line so i always wear them with balm. i love the colors from this range though and the packaging!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Looks pretty, but I expected the second one to be much bolder D;

    ReplyDelete
  14. This is ridiculously cute! The packaging kills! If only the lipsticks were better quality though. I still love Korean cosmetics though. I want to go to Korea and just get massive amounts of stuff! :D

    1. Thanks for the suggestion Sara! I will definitely check out the Peripera lipsticks next time! I think I've seen some of their lipsticks on other blogs before. The name does sound a bit familiar :)

  18. Both colors wear so pretty on you Rinny! It's a shame they're drying. I haven't tried these but I have to say I really adore the pretty and feminine packaging of Asian beauty products. In a way I'm glad that Etude House products aren't that readily available in the US cause it saves my wallet ;p

    Hope you're having a wonderful week!

  19. The colors you chose are very pretty! However, I'm a bit concerned that they're on the dry side, since the biggest issues I have with my lips are the lines -_- Do you think applying lip balm beforehand will help?
    Thanks for the review!

    1. Hi Jenny! Applying lip balm beforehand definitely helps a bit!

  20. The packaging is so cute, I can't handle it! But my lips get so dry so the formula doesn't seem ideal for me :(

  21. I LOVE Etude House products so much. ^^

    I bought the BE101 too. It's a lovely colour. The coral colour is pretty. I wish I could have bought all the colours when I went Korea.It was so cheap there.

    Most lipsticks are quite drying so I tend to apply lip balm on my lips.

    Thanks for the lovely review Rinny. I want to buy the pink toned coral lipstick.

  22. The whole colour range looks good!

  23. Aw that video was so cute! I didn't understand a lick of it, but I got the gist :P And those lipsticks--pretty!!!

  24. I love the packaging!! So gorgeous. Love the sheer shine as well.

  25. Aww the lipsticks are so cute! I own a few etude house lipsticks and while they are so pigmented, I can never avoid them looking dry and settling into the fine lines of my lips :(

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have some eyeshadows and cheek blusher from Etude, they have adorable packaging but tends to go on really light. It's worth looking at them though lol

    ReplyDelete
  27. The packaging is just so adorable. I was thinking about getting it in asia, but if you go to the etude houses outside of korea, it's always significantly more expensive. :(

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hi Rinny, the lipsticks looks pretty! I haven't tried yet might go to etude house to check them out later :) love your review!

    ReplyDelete
  29. The packaging is so cute and dainty! Both shades look nice on you ^_^ I like that there is a good variety of shades - especially the orange shades. #206 and #207 looks so pretty~

    ReplyDelete
  30. the packing and whimsical names of the shades are just too cute!
    it is a shame the lipstick itself isn't that satisfying, though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. These lipsticks do look really cute but such a bummer that they are drying on the lips. My lips are sensitive and prone to peeling so I don't think I will be trying these out.

    The internship at INGLOT was very fun indeed. It's fun to walk into the office and be surrounded by shelves full of makeup.

  33. The packaging is adorable but it's a shame they're drying >< I need really moisturizing lippies because my lips are sooo chapped all the time T_T

    re: Haha we love macarons and it turns out that we eat them quite regularly now!

    ReplyDelete
  34. oh thanks for reviewing! I freaking love Etude House haha. and the packaging is always *o* the colours you got are really pretty. it is unfortunate they're a bit drying, but we can kind of forgive them because of the adorable packaging...right? :P

    1. Haha yes exactly! I'll just have to remember to pile on the lipbalm before I use these in the future :P

  35. Firstly I laughed at the name of the lipstick, then at the video. After that, I threw all laughter out of the window and squealed for the pretty pink bow and embossing on the sides totally had be sold. The colours look so natural on your lips. It's such a pity that they would settle into the fine lines.

  36. those lipsticks are SOOOOOOOOO CUTE!!! i'd totally buy one just to have to pretend i'm a cute princess of sorts :DDD

    but gahhh! drying on the lips part doesn't sound too appealing T_T and if they're comparable to drug store lip sticks but are priced at 12-15$...if i had a choice, i'd prob stick to drugstore lipsticks since they cost less. thx for the review!

  37. omg those Etude House lippies looks great on your lip swatches, especially the last one, the pigments really show and reveals healthy looking lips! but mine are super dry already so it probably will seep into lines. I actually did a review on the salmon eye concealers haha. Those are my HG concealers now.

    Would you like to follow each other?

    I guess I won't be trying these because my lips get really flaky and horrible if I use very drying lipsticks

  47. Thanks for sharing this.. It is so informative and helpful especially right now where i'm currently looking for lipsticks that looks au naturel. But the only thing about Etude is, it makes your lips dry :( But i really do love the shades they've got especially this barbie pink one.. I always remind myself to buy it but i always forget about it :(((
