[REVIEW] Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips-talk


Are you the type that spends tedious hours carefully putting on your makeup, then later realize you completely forgot to apply lipstick? Well, have no fear. We found the best Korean lip stick and tested out the Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk Chiffon lipstick in the new hot color BE109. We absolutely loved it and we know you will too. <3



As you may know, Etude House has a reputation for keeping their product packaging on point. Usually, they adorn their loveable products with cute bows and dashes of pink. This lipstick is somewhat toned down compared to their other products, but at least it won't look like you borrowed your little sister's lipstick when reapplying at work.


The lipstick container itself is quite sturdy and is lined with cute little pink frills. Also, like most standard lipsticks, you can dispense the product simply by twisting. The lipstick comes in many different colors, but I'm not a big fan of the really bright pinks and oranges, so I settled for a neutral color BE109.​



When I first walked into the Etude House booth, I was absolutely astonished. There were so many colors and pretty things a person like me would easily spend hours on end testing products. However, I was finally able to settle on a color that I actually would use on the regular.


Honestly, this is probably one of my favorite shades of lipsticks. It matches my skin tone (olive, yellow undertones) so well that I know I'm going to have to purchase several more. The color itself is a combination of rose and burnt sienna, creating a subtle amplification of my own lip color. It looks great with neutral tone eye shadows as well.


As you can see in the graph above, there are many different shades and colors. The word "chiffon" means a combination of Matte/Cream, which leaves your lips moisturized with a matte finish. Generally, I like to stick to nude/natural colors since I LOVE to go drastic with my eye makeup. However, if you're looking to amp up your lip color, bright pinks and oranges are very popular in Korea right now.​

The word "chiffon" means a combination of Matte/Cream, which leaves your lips moisturized with a matte finish. Shockingly, this product did exactly that. I was concerned that the finish would be a little bit too matte and cause chaffing in my lips. However, I was happy to find the finish was rich in moisture and still had long lasting wear. I wore it all day and only had to reapply after lunch time.

At first, I wasn't able to smell anything seriously strong coming from the lipstick. After a while, I noticed that there was a subtle berry scent coming from my mouth and realized it was the lipstick. In my opinion, this is excellent because I cannot stand cosmetics that keep sending smells to your senses throughout the day.​
