Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips Talk Swatches and Review (PK003, PK004, RD304)

Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips Talk Lipsticks Swatch and Review PK003, PK003, RD304

Hi pretties! As promised, I have a new review for you today. I'm reviewing 3 of the Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips Talk Lipsticks (mouthful or what?). They're mega-cute lippies, affordable, and the colour range is hu-uge~

The Dear My Blooming lippies are described as smooth textured lipsticks that provides moist shine and vivid colour. The original range started off with 24 colours varying from beige, orange, pink, and red shades. Etude House recently released another 5 shades to the collection called Pink Talk, and again another further 10 shades in their new Summer collection Color Pop. 

That's a lot of lippies...

Aside from the drool-worthy colour range of the lipsticks, I'd say the main attraction is of course the packaging!

The Blooming lipsticks are certainly very Princess-y, packaged in pale pink tubes, adorned with a (removable) adorable metallic pink bow at the base. The tubes have a bit of an iridescence under certain lighting, and I love the slight curved shape of the tube, and extra detail at the top.

The cuteness doesn't stop there, as engraved on the lipstick bullets themselves is a pretty heart and crown design, that resembles a Cinderella carriage~

The colours I have are from the original range - Jealous Pink (PK003), Breathtaking Pink (PK004), and Electrifying Red (RD304). Breathtaking Pink and Electrifying Red are actually the 'hot' picks of the colour range, so I figured it'd be a safe choice to get them.

The packaging is different as the 'hot colours' get special packaging~

The one thing I don't like about the packaging is that there isn't a way to easily distinguish between colours, aside from reading the number on the bottom of the tube.

I found the Dear My Blooming lipsticks to be creamy, with a satisfying colour payoff. They give a lot of pigmentation from the first swipe, but for a full opaque lip I think two coats is necessary. 

The formula is not flattering on dry or flakey lips, so I would highly recommend prepping the lips first, whether by exfoliating or using a good lip balm. On me, I found these did accentuate my lip lines, so in order to combat that I always put on lip balm underneath first to 'fill' in my lip lines, and the lipstick always looks better when I do that. 

I didn't find them to be drying or uncomfortable on my lips, though I am aware of feeling something on my lips. Scent-wise, these lipsticks don't have a strong scent, but they do have a slightly sweet peachy scent? It really seems like the same scent as the Cupcake All Over Colours

LIP SWATCHES

Jealous Pink PK003 (2 coats applied with lip brush, lip balm underneath)
Breathtaking Pink PK004 (2 coats applied with lip brush, lip balm underneath)
Electrifying Red 304 (2 coats applied with lip brush, lip balm underneath)
Electrifying Red 304 (applied straight from the bullet)

They look glossy and shiny due to the lip balm I think! And of course the colour payoff is more vibrant when applied straight from the bullet rather than my preferred method of lip brush. 

My fave colour is Electrifying Red, which is more of a peachy corally pinky red than a true red! But I do like all the colours a lot~

I think these lipsticks are really nice, and it's well worth having one or two in your lippie collection. But if you suffer from dry and flakey lips, the formula may be too unflattering for you,  but otherwise I would recommend these to lipstick lovers!

You can easily find these lipsticks online, generally between $10-15, sometimes cheaper on sale.

  30. They're cute lipsticks aren't they ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thanks, I was happy with how they look with lipbalm, but they look pretty bad without lipbalm since I have dry lips!
    I used to be scared of lipsticks too! Just start with sheer lips and tints and work your way up ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thanks Louise! I'm relieved none of them looked bad on my complexion. Yes, I was confused about that too! I think there may have been lipbalm residue left on the bullet or something, because it wasn't that glossy before >_<

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hehe, it was difficult just to limit myself to 3 out of the whole collection ^_^
    Thanks for reading!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Etude's definitely got some cute packaging! Those two pinks are pretty and wearable too!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I managed to get one on sale, but the other two were full price :(
    I'm curious as to how Etude decided which colours should be the 'hot' colours lol.
    Really? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Breathtaking pink is cute if you like bright pink lips ^^
    I think coral reds are more wearable than normal reds!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Heh, they kinda do look like popsicle colours! ^_^

  38. The pigmentation was better than expected ^^

  44. Etude House is probably my fave brand! That's sweet, thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  45. is this really long-lasting??? heyy i follow you tehheee ~

    ReplyDelete
  46. It fades a bit after eating or drinking, but otherwise I'd say around 4 hours top, so not very longlasting, but ok enough for me :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. you're so cuuuuuute! I am planning of buying these atleast three from pink,orange and beige family. If you don't mind,hmm,what brand of lip brush are you using in these review? And which is better to buy dear my blooming lips talk or the jelly lips one? thank youuu in advance

    ReplyDelete
  48. Aww, you're too sweet! The lip brush I was using here is the brush from the Real Techniques Core Collection set~
    I personally *love* the jelly lips, which are my everyday lipsticks as I like the balmy texture and glossy finish. However the Blooming lips are for a more mature look, and are both more long lasting and more pigmented on the lips.

    ReplyDelete
  49. thank you very much for the information, I am really not used to apply lipstick using a lip brush. I might try the brand your using, I just don't know where to find it. :) I'm also a real beginner in lipstick, haha, don't know what brand to invest. Are those jelly lips give moisture to lips? My lips are not flaky but lines are stil visible though...can I also know your tips in moisturizing lips? thank you again in advance pretty.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Using a lip brush is more precise for me - when I try to use the lipstick bullet I just get it all over my lips lol! The jelly lips feel more slick, and do feel less drying, but at the same time if you have flakey lips the lines will show. I think PK002 and JOR203 are better, but if you choose a sheer shade like JPK004 I found it made my dry lips look bad. To fill in the lip lines I just apply a lip balm like Maybelline baby lips first - but that's for the blooming lipsticks. I didn't need to fill in the lines in my lips with the jelly lipsticks. And to keep lips less dry I usually put on a lot of petroleum jelly, and after a few minutes I use an old softened toothbrush to 'scrub' my lips - it really helps!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I am excited to try using lip brush tee-hee! I will definitely buy soon. Wow, a lipstick that is less drying! I might choose those jelly lippies over the blooming ones :) Thank you for the tip, that is very nice of you. I will try scrubbing my lips before I sleep. :)
