[Review] Etude House dear my blooming lips talk + giveaway winner!

I'm back! Hi!~

I've got a review for you guys today, and it's on Etude House's "dear my blooming lips talk" line! These have been a hit with many people, and lots of people seem to like it. It's a bestselling item in most online stores, and I'm super duper happy that I get to review these thanks to Keautystore.

" stands for Korean Beauty Store which is an online store selling items from Korea. was founded in November 2009 (as and has been operating successfully until the present day. We are an online retailer/wholesaler of women's and men's cosmetics, contact lenses, Korean fashion wigs and much more." 

So let's get on with this review!
*Giveaway winner at the bottom of the post.


Smooth textured lipstick supplies vivid color and moist shine. 
1. Expressed as vivid colour on the lips. Smooth and good colour. Clean, bright lips express. 
2. Smooth lips without keratin. Soft as cream.
3. Abundant nutrition and moisture. Maintains healthy, moist lips. 

These lipsticks are pretty much exactly as described. I was pretty surprised at how smooth and creamy they were! They didn't feel "crayon-y", nor did it feel like I was tugging it around my lips. The colour is pretty vivid, but note that some colours may look very, very similar to each other. 

Net wt: 3.4g (0.11oz)
Size: Small, but enough to last a while. The bullet is maybe 3.5cm, from base to tip. 

Price: $14 
You can find it here at Keautystore!

Colours: There is a huge range of colours to choose from. There are currently 31 colours in the whole line!


I'll be showing you 5 of the 31 colours! (If the PK009 sticker looks tampered with, it totally is. I peeled it off for fun and stuck it back on... entertainment at its weirdest.)


The packaging is super pretty -  they're slightly shimmery, pink tubes with ribbons on the bottom! Super girly and pretty. It's the little details that make the whole thing really cute, no?

They've got product information stickers on the bottom of the tubes. Although all the tubes look exactly the same, you'll have the product name and code (ex. OR204) on the bottom. 

The lipsticks

From left to right, we have: 
1. BE101 (Tease beige)
2. PK005 (Excited pink) 
3. PK009
4. OR204 (Bashful coral)
5. OR205 (Exciting orange)

The bullets are really vivid in colour, and are super smooth and creamy! They even have little carvings on them - I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be cinderella's carriage? It sure looks like it. Eee, little pretty details make me squeal in a really weird way ahhaa~

Again, in the same order: 
1. BE101
2. PK005
3. PK009
4. OR204
5. OR205


With flash, blended out! 

Lip swatches

These lipsticks are really creamy and smooth - it's a breeze applying them to your lips, but I highly recommend that you exfoliate your lips beforehand. It really won't look good if you apply this lipstick when you've got chapped, "damaged" lips. The colour will settle into lines, "clump up" a little on chappy lips and... it's just a mess. I really tried exfoliating the best I could, but meh, it did settle into lines a bit. Not a big deal, though.
- These lipsticks aren't drying, either. They really do make my lips moist, I likey!

I really like how each colour shows up pretty well on my lips - I could actually see the colour difference on these lipsticks (unlike some other lipsticks, which may all look the same). They last decently long, but you might want to reapply after eating or drinking. I don't really care for reapplying though, and find that it still gives a faint tint even at the very end of the day. I don't mind! 

My favourite colours have to be BE101 and OR204. Even though they're super pretty, I do think the pinks (PK009 in particular) are a little too strong for me. 

Lastly, for the price - I think it's worth its price range ($8-14). They've got lots of quality for the price. I personally would never spend over $40+ on a lipstick (okay, maybe if I suddenly had the money), and because these are so good, I'll probably see myself buying more of these in the future! 

Because of their quality and affordability, I'd recommend 1 or 2 to anyone interested in lipsticks! I don't think you'll be disappointed. ^__^

- Creamy, smooth texture
- Affordable
- Easy to find + buy
- Lightly scented 
- Really pigmented
- Huge colour range to choose from 
- Adorable packaging! 

- Absolutely must exfoliate before use (unless you've got amazing lips... I'm jealous!)

Repurchase: Yes! I'd love to try more of the beige colours, they're pretty and so wearable!

  18. I have been debating be101 I am so glad you watched it! Good review!

  19. I have the pk005 colour! I really like it too, so creamy isn't it? :D But I don't think the colour is suitable for everyday wear, for me at least, I always have to blot it to make it more muted. Nice review and comparison of the colours! :D

  20. or204 looks really pretty! the texture seems good too ^_^

  21. I think Bashful coral looks the prettiest (biased towards anything orange/coral ^_^).

  22. That lipstick looks so creamy, and shaped so perfectly I'd be afraid to use it and ruin the cute little shape. The package is adorable.

    Visit my blog,

  26. These are lovely, as most Etude House lipsticks tend to be. I like 2 and 4 the best. <3

  27. Beautiful lipsticks! I honestly wouldn't know which one to take since all the colours look great and not too intense. The package is wonderful too, it's like the perfect product O_O

  28. Color 2&4 are so pretty!!
    Its hard to find a lipstick that wont go through the cracks of chapped lips. I think they're all kinda made that way T_T I wish I had perf lips.
    Surprised how the colors really show since they seem sorta light haha

    You have really nice lips! (:

  29. one and two are so lovely but i think 3 might be too cool toned for me. thanks for the swatches. makes purchasing that much easier :)
