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.

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.
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.
From left to right, we have:
1. BE101 (Tease beige)
2. PK005 (Excited pink)
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:
|Flash, blended out!|
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
- 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!
