After last month’s pink bird box, which included all three Etude House Bubble Tea Sleeping Packs, this month’s pink bird box is packed with makeup products. Since I had so many pictures for this post I decided to make three reviews, each focussing on one of the three newly released products out of this box: The Etude House Dear My Lips-Talk Chiffon, the Etude House Real Powder Cushion and new colors of the Etude House Play 101 Pencils. I will start with the key item of the new Etude House releases, the Etude House Dear My Lips-Talk Chiffon.
First of all, some words about the Korean brand Etude House: Etude House is one of the best known Korean brands for cute packaging. If you are a lover of cute, girly and pink packaging, reminding you of being a child and the princess you always dreamt to be, THIS is your brand. Their packaging is usually so adorable that you cannot keep yourself from impuls-buys – only because you saw the packaging… Etude House has a blogger program called Pink Bird. Selected blogger will receive a monthly box for a defined period of time packed with selected products for reviewing purpose. I’m really proud and happy to be part of their Pink Bird program!
Etude House even send us two different shades from their new lipstick range, which I will show you here: We received shade PK027 and BE109 of this new semi-matte lipstick range. All in all there are 12 colors available of the Etude House Dear My Lips-Talk Chiffon.
As you can see Etude House changed the design of their lipsticks. The previous design was princess-y and looked like a toy. The new design is still pink and cute, but more sleep than before. The material is still a light plastic though and doesn’t feel super expensive. Still, for people loving pink this will be a dream again.
The Etude House Dear My Lips-Talk Chiffon are a combination of a soft and moist cream lipstick and a long-lasting and pigmented matte lipsticks. The combination of both properties builds the chiffon lipstick. The lipstick promises to be thin and light, long-lasting and fill the lines and wrinkles of the lips. I’m a bit confused by the last property though, because usually I do not want the lipstick to settle in the lines…but proberly they mean that it stains the lips evenly.
PK027 is the shade which was advertised by Krystal in the promotional pics and is a pigmented dark pink shade, almost cherry toned. I was first worried that it would be too pink for me, but surprisingly it looks really nice and almost like the color that most lip tints pay off on the lips. BE101 is a beige color which can be pulled off for a daily and natural look. It was hyped by LilyMaymac on Instagram. It fits perfectly to my natural lip color and is the perfect contrast to the vivid pink color from PK027. The texture of the lipsticks is nice, not super creamy and melting, but also not dry and difficult to layer like some matte lipsticks are. It is a perfect mixture as I expected from this lipstick. The pigmentation is nicely visible, too, as you can see from the swatches below. Both colors cover my lips evenly and do not accentuate the dry parts of my lips and they did not settle unprettily in the lines either. Luckily! BE101 wears off quicker than PK027, which leaves a bit of a stain, but the lipsticks are not long-lasting. Actually, not a real surprise to me, because it is really hard to find a really long-lasting lipstick anyways.
All in all, although I was not expecting too much from this lipstick, I really like the two colors. Although I prefer the old design of the Etude House lipsticks, these are not too bad either. I grabbed the PK027 quite often in the last day, guess I like the pink shade- although, if you know me, you know that I prefer red lips usually! The Etude House Dear My Lips-Talk Chiffon retail for 12.40 US$ on Etude House’s official store.
