Etude House Minnie Kissing Lips Lipstick Review - Bubble Pink and Minnie Red

Hi loves! 

Etude House released a collaboration collection with Disney back in October, and I know a lot of you fell in love with it, because it featured the ever cute and stylish, Minnie Mouse!

Today I've got the two Kissing Lips lipsticks from the collection to review for you. I actually wanted to get the review up earlier, but a few weeks back I had a bit of a clumsy moment and deleted a few hundred new photos off my camera, so it took me a while to re-shoot them T_T

Anywho, I couldn't resist, and bought the two lipsticks as I just couldn't choose between either. Minnie Red is a glossy cherry red shade, and Bubble Pink is a milky pink shade (as described by Etude).

The packaging is just darling - I really find the Bubble Pink polka dot packaging so adorable and girlie!

You can see more of the moist sheen finish of the lippie

The Kissing Lips lippies have exactly the sort of texture I like - they're creamy and glide onto the lips with ease. And they're hydrating! They didn't dry out my lips at all, and were comfortable to wear. I was sort of aware of the lipsticks on my lips due to the balmy texture, but it wasn't a heavy feeling. 

If you have flaky lips I'd still recommend you prep your lips before hand, as although the lipsticks glide on with ease, the pink shade in particular may still show up any flaky bits. 

Scent-wise, these lipsticks had a similar peach tea scent to the Sweet Recipe All Over Colours, but more fainter.  

Pigmentation is decent from the first swipe, and the lasting power is okay. It's a glossy lipstick so it does tend to rub off easily, however if you don't eat or drink, the lasting power is about 3ish hours before it starts fading away. Minnie Red leaves a stain, but it does fade unevenly, so either removal or a continuous maintenance throughout the day would be required.

Bubble Pink is just the cutest colour - however it looks awful against my yellow skintone! It 'pops' on me, but not in a good way T_T 

If I stand in really bright sunlight which bleaches my skin in photos, it can look cute, but in reality it just doesn't suit me *sigh*

Which is such a shame - but I think this shade would look so sweet and cute on fair and cool undertone skin types. If you have yellow undertones like me, you might be better off saving your money >_< 


Minnie Red is an eye-catching red lippie that makes me feel grown up and a bit glam. It has a noticeably glossier finish compared to Bubble Pink, and is a pretty cherry red shade.

If you blot, or apply the red lippie softly, you can get a less glossy and vivid look too.

Overall I liked the formula of these Kissing Lips lippies - Bubble Pink ended up being a flop on me, but barring how the colour looked against my skin tone, I thought the quality of the lipstick was nice.


I'd actually like to see Etude release some more lippies with this formula in different shades in the future. I'd probably want to pick up one or two more, if the shades seemed cute ^_^

  4. Aww I love the bubble pink lipstick color ! It's soooo cute but I don't know if it could suit me, what MAC skintone are you? And I think the red one look super nice on you too. The staying power is just a shame >~< Thanks for always reviewing nice products, Tulip~ ^ u ^
    I have another question tho (sorry if this is annoying you qq) but what eyeliner are you using? I'm currently looking for a waterproof and smudge proof eyeliner which can be worn for school~ Can you recommend me your HG eyeliner? ; u ;

  5. Actually, I don't think the bubble pink looked that bad! I always dislike bright pink lipstick on myself as well haha, it looks to bright and too ridiculous sometimes. But the red is stunning!

  17. Hehe, I wish it suited me more - it is a cute colour!
    Aww, thanks, I'm bad at smiling, so I purse my lips instead >_<

  18. I think because it's the Korean trend to have super pale and little yellow complexion, that makeup brands keep making shades for those types of skin types!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hehe, in reality it's not as flattering! Which is a shame T_T

  20. I haven't been shade matched, but I'd put myself between NC20-25 (based on comparing my skintones to other bloggers). Thank you, I'm still not used to wearing red lippies, but I'm beginning to like them more and more.

    It's not annoying to ask qs at all! The eyeliner I've been using the past twoish months is this one from Sasa (the brown version)

    I really like the tip as it's good for doing fine lines! It's not my HG as I'm yet to find one I love yet, but this one I like enough to have repurchased it. It doesn't smudge on me, the only thing I don't like about it is that it's not too good for doing tightlining or getting super close to the lash roots, so there's a gap sometimes >_< You can sort of see what I mean by the last pic of me above!

  21. Hehe, it photographed better, but in reality I wasn't loving it on me too much!
    It took me ages to work myself up to bright lippies! I still feel self conscious sometimes, but once I find a flattering bright shade I really like it ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  22. The formula of these are really nice! A few more different shades would've been nice though >_<

    ReplyDelete
  23. It's an adorable colour, just not so much on me T_T

  24. I wish the pink was more flattering on me T_T
    The red's pretty flirty!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hehe, I think it photographs better than it looks in real life? I definitely felt like it was too cool toned on me >_<

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm still not quite loving it on me, but thank you!

    ReplyDelete
