Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips

Yesterday I went to collect the post & realized that my order from Honest Skin had arrived. I think it is safe to say that at this point I may be slightly obsessed enamoured with Etude House. Everything is so pretty in pink (<— You see what I did there? 🙂 If you have not seen this classic then I suggest you do so.) Maybe I enjoy this girly brand because I am the only female in my house or it could be because I am dreading turning 29. Either way girly makeup is just what the doctor ordered! I decided to be bold & purchased RD302 & PK003 from the Dear My Blooming Lips collection. Here’s the lovely lippies now.

I am absolutely loving the detail here. The soft pink with the bows. I feel like Aurora from Sleeping Beauty.

See I told you I wanted to take a risk. Look at how bright they are. ^_^  In my next photo I had to resort to using a bright flash, but it was the only way to show the surprising details!

They have these super cute whimsical hearts engraved in each one. I kind of want to just keep these on my vanity & not use them. For comparison purposes I will include my swatches & the ad from Etude House.

I wanted red & I got it. The pink is after two coats so I was happy to see that I can play around & adjust the color to my liking. The application was surprisingly smooth for a brand that many consider to be lower end. (In my eyes even the Korean lower end or drug store brands are still leaps and bounds ahead of most of the brands here in the United States). Plus the price did not hurt. The Etude House website has these available for $8.50 a piece. I got these during a flash sale by Honest Skin for $1.98 each!!! How crazy is that? Even with the $5 shipping that means I actually received these for $8.96. Not a bad deal if you ask me.

So far I am impressed by their cuteness factor and easy application. I still have to test how long a single application will last, but overall I am very pleased. If these color swatches below are correct then I will have to add to my collection.
