Wahahiii lovely pixiedust!!!
If you guys read my previous posts, you’ll know that I am a HUGE Etude House fan. Especially with their super girly packaging and the super affordable prices, it’s almost irresistible! However they do carry some stuff that I am just totally not impressed with (will blog about them later!). I have never tried any of their lip products, and was soooo excited to try the Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips Talk !!
I think these lipsticks are SOOO PRETTY on the outside and on the inside, with the Etude House logo imprinted on the lipstick themselves! The pink sparkly bow can also be taken off and worn as rings *super girly*
RD304 – Exciting Red – I love this color! The photos don’t do it justice, it’s a very vibrant red that is very buildable!
OR205 Exciting Orange – This color sounds like it’ll be very vibrant.. but it doesn’t really live up to its name- it’s not too orange in real life, which means it’s definitely more natural!
OR204 – Shame Coral. I don’t know what’s so “shame” about this shade – this is a softer shade of orange with a pink tint to it. I love it! It’s super soft and romantic, and would be ideal for dates or a natural look
PK005 – Exciting Pink. Again, not really that “exciting”. This is soft, baby pink with a cool undertone – It’s super lovely – IF you can pull it off. I found that with lighter shades it’s harder to pull off, and the colors do get more noticeably stuck in the lines of your lips (no matter how hard you exfoliate before!)
PK004 – Breathtaking Pink. Ta-dah! I saved my favorite for last. This is the only lipstick in the bunch that I think actually lives up to its name. It’s an electric, shocking magenta. It’s perfect for that POP of color especially in the winter, and all the attention is on you! I also like the glossy effect this color has on its own!
You may realize that.. all lipsticks look exactly the same with the cap on. O.O It may not be a problem when you only have one of these lipsticks in your lipstick stash, but when you have multiple colors, they become incredibly difficult to identify which is which. (the sticker on the bottom don’t really help either since they are all the same shade of pink…) But I guess lots of other lipstick brands do the same thing… I just want to hammer their lipstick line producer heads and ask what are you thinking when you released them? How do you keep track of your colors? >.<”
Color Payoff: 8/10
Great color payoff – basically what you see in the lipstick tube is mostly what will be the color of your lips. The brighter, deeper colors are definitely more buildable than the lighters ones though. For the lighter colors, it’s easy to have the color lodged in between the lines of your lips. And no, i don’t blame my lips because I moisturized and exfoliated the crap out of them before I wearing them.
Lasting Power: 8/10
Very Very good. I can wear them for about 4 hours (including talking, licking my lips, drinking water etc) without the color starting to fade. However they do transfer… so be careful to wear your crisp white shirt first before putting on a layer of electric pink lipstick. Slap on a layer of gloss on top, and you’ll even more prolong the lasting power!
They can be somewhat sticky when first applied, but I like to think of it as moisture. They certainly do not dry out your lips (hate it when that happens! As if our lip lines aren’t bad enough), and you don’t feel like your lips are caked with heavy formula either!
