[REVIEW] Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk Rose Kiss Edition

If I had to pick a makeup product that I love the most, I would definitely choose lipstick. However, I’m actually not a super big fan of Etude House’s lip products – there are definitely other K-beauty brands that come to mind when I’m asked to recommend lipsticks to friends.

Nonetheless, I’m not one to let a single bad experience stop me from trying other products from Etude House, and honestly, how could anyone resist this beautiful collection? I chanced upon it when I went to join the crowd in Etude House’s reopening at Junction 8 – there was a whooping discount of 20% for this collection, so I knew it was literally ‘now or never’ and here I am with these products to review.


Product Description

The Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk #Rose Kiss Edition contains 12 brilliant lipstick shades (6 cream and 6 matte) inspired by roses to make your lips look plump and bright like an alluring rose.

Official Retail Price: SGD 78

Packaging: Beautiful box aside, the packaging of the lipstick itself is quite simple – just a rectangular, block-coloured lipstick. I do like the lip detail on the lipstick itself though, it’s cute! The lipstick is also not full-sized (I think), making it smaller than the usual Blooming Talk lip products. It’s super convenient to carry around, and also helps ensure that I have a higher possibility of finishing it haha.

Colour: The colours in this collection are super comprehensive – you like nudes? Reds? Orange? A bright pink? Or darker colours for a night out? This collection definitely has you covered. I love being spoilt for choice when I want to pick a colour to use based on my mood, and my outfit for the day.

Payoff-wise, I think the cream lipsticks are definitely very impressive. You can see in the last photo that the colour is very rich and has good coverage. However, I do find that the chiffon ones are a bit lacking. The colour is not very good so I often have to take a few swipes to get a stronger colour.

Staying power: Again, there is a difference between cream and chiffon.

Surprisingly, the cream formula is really good at staying put. I’ve gone through a day without touching up and the colour still holds on. The chiffon formula is a completely  different story.  Although it’s a bit of a cross between cream and matte, it actually doesn’t stay on as much I initially expected. What makes it worse is the fact that it’s quite drying, and dries my lips out even more than a normal matte lipstick.


Final Verdict

SGD 78 divided by 12 comes up to SGD 6.50 per lipstick, which is honestly a steal. I bought this at about SGD 60+, so you can imagine how happy I was to get my hands on this.

Price aside, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by Etude House’s cream lipsticks in this collection. The chiffon ones are still not quite my thing, but maybe it’s just me.
