ETUDE HOUSE DEAR MY BLOOMING LIPS TALK - PK015 DAZZLING PINK | 에뛰드 하우스 디어 마이 블루밍 립스-톡 - PK015 아찔한 핑크

Woah guys, look at ma fancy editing skillz

So, this is the Etude House "Dear My Blooming Lips Talk" lipstick in "PK015- Dazzling Pink". *and breeeeeathe* . Etude reeeeeeally love their tongue twistersThis was part of a collection called Pink Talk, a series of super cute pink lipsticks in the Lips Talk range. I actually have no idea why I chose the darkest, seemingly most unflattering colour of the five, though...
However, fear not y'all!

PK015 is a dark,  mauve toned pink that is probably not everyone's cup of tea, but yolo, right? (punches self).

Personally, I thought my skin was maybe too yellow to pull this off, but it's not! Though, if you're maybe more shy with your lip colour choices I'd probably steer clear of pretty much all of the range apart from PK011- however, I'm guessing these would be great for gradient lips and stuff like that.

It went on pretty smoothly at first swatch, but on the lips it's SUPER matte and you'll definitely need to exfoliate your lips beforehand, unless you're going for the crusty lip trend look. It's also quite drying too, so a lip balm is really reccomended! But, It did last on my lips for around 3 hours without me eating anything, and once I've blotted it down on my lips, it hardly transfers any product.

So, the lowdown? 

-Pretty pigmented,
-Really lovely colour and goes well with all skintones,
-Quite long lasting, doesn't transfer,

-Super matte, so you need a balm beforehand,
-Drying to the lips.
Overall, I'd give this a: 

So how about you? Would you go for a "daring" colour like this, or maybe one of the more wearable shades?

ETUDE HOUSE ROSY TINT LIPS - 07 TEA ROSE | 에뛰드 하우스 로지 틴트 립스 07호 티 로즈

Etude House Rosy Tint Lips - 07 Tea Rose | 에뛰드 하우스 로지 틴트 립스 07호 티 로즈

This is such a late review, but for informational purposes, I'll post it anyway!

This little gem wrapped up in rosy goodness is Etude House's Rosy Tint Lips in 07 Tea Rose. Isn't the packaging gorgeous?

The product itself is not dissimilar to Collection 2000's Cream Puffs or the NYX counterpart, with a creme type formula that glides onto the lips. Because it's a matte product, I really advise some kind of exfoliation on your lips beforehand to get rid of all the dead skin, because it will cling to every little dry patch!

The colour I have is a beautiful warm, burnt brick colour that is very flattering on my yellowy toned skin, something that I was pleasantly surprised with. It's quite pigmented and because of the sturdy packaging, it's suceptible to giving out too much product. :( However, this lasts quite a while on my lips at around 2 hours or so. It also has a faint rose scent which isn't really that noticeable, but it's still there.

The foam applicator is something I'm not fussed about, since I use a lip brush anyway- but for touch ups, it can be really useful!

Overall, I really like this product! It's a beautiful colour that lasts pretty well; and it has a texture that makes it feel like there's nothing on your lips. The only downfall is that it clings to dry patches!

So, the Etude House Rosy Tint Lips gets a rating of:

What do you think? Do you have any of these? I'm a fan!

what i came out with!
some gifts from korea

Hey strangers! 

It's been a while since I've posted on here... (read: 3 months). I didn't really have the time or motivation to blog much, so I'm now stuck with a giant backload of stuff to review and get done!

While I was gone, I did a mammoth load of shopping. You can take the girl away from the blog but you can't take the blog out of the girl, eh! The first and second images are the products of a veeeeeery lengthy spree that saw me run up and down the city at least 4 times over, but I think my haulage was worth it! You'll be seeing lots of reviews of everything soon!

The third picture is the contents of a care package from my best friend in Korea, fit with all the winter nessecities (e.g socks and face packs!) that a girl could ever need! She threw in some really cool goodies like the Aritaum World Glam Tint (LOOOVE), and some sheet masks which I'll be reviewing soon. Would you guys also like a candy review? Because I got LOOOOOOTS of that!

So what have you guys been up to during my 3 month hiatus? Any cool new products to share? Tell me in the comments!
