A quick visit to the Etude House store earlier this week and I saw these items still on display. I also found them to be available in various online stores. So I decided to write a post on them because I love Etude House products~~
I have the Miss Tangerine Sweet Shower Lips in #1 Shiny Pink Shower, #2 Sweet Berry Blossom and #5 Sweet Peach Shower (I wanted to review these ages ago but I kept procrastinating, hence I didn't throw out the boxes because I always try to photograph products in their original packaging). Then I have the Dear Darling Roll Roll Gloss in #3 Grapefruit Sherbet and #7 Raspberry Smoothie. Finally I have the Nymph Aura Jelly Tint Blusher in #2 Red Orange.
I have 3 of the 5 Miss Tangerine Sweet Shower Lips shades. From left: Miss Tangerine Sweet Shower Lips in #1 Shiny Pink Shower (light baby pink), #2 Sweet Berry Blossom (cherry reddish pink)and #5 Sweet Peach Shower (coral peach colour). I used the #1 and #5 all the time but I have only used the #2 once.
One important thing to note is that the product can only be twisted up. So it is recommended that you only twist out 1-2mm of the product at one time because if you accidentally twist out too much, you can't actually retract it.
These are the first items I got from Etude House and I really adore them. The packaging is really cute and feels really weighty and sturdy. It has an amazing tangerine scent, which I like but could be a problem for some who are sensitive to fragrance. This lipstick is very wearable because the colour isn't too heavy/opaque (the colour definitely doesn't come out as strong on the lips as they do in the swatches on my arm) and the finish is glossy but not heavy on the lips. The formula is very creamy and this product is surprisingly moisturizing and do not make my lips peel. This lipstick also wears well for such a lightweight formula; it stays for about 4 hours on my lips.
This product isn't the most flattering on dry/chapped lips and it does settle into fine lines. The inability to twist the product down is also quite a nuisance.
DEAR DARLING ROLL ROLL GLOSS
The Dear Darling Roll Roll Gloss is available in 15 shades (with several different finishes I believe).
If you wonder why this product is called the Roll Roll Gloss, it's because the doe foot applicator actually rolls.
From left: #7 Raspberry Smoothie (medium pink with a sheen finish) and #3 Grapefruit Sherbet (jelly finish peachy pink with tiny glitter particles).
I love the smell of this product because the smell reminds me of a candy that I love as a kid (not everyone might like it because the smell is quite strong). I love the rolling doe foot applicator because strange as it might sound, it actually applies the gloss very evenly and smoothly. I like both the finishes: #7 has a frosty sheen finish but the colour shows up better on the lips while #3 has a jelly finish which pretty much just give the lips a glossy finish with a tiny hint of colour. This gloss is also very comfortable to wear because it doesn't feel overly sticky on the lips. The packaging is also really cute and girly.
This gloss does not stay on for very long at all, just over an hour or so (also expect to be reapplying after taking a drink/eating).
NYMPH AURA JELLY TINT BLUSHER
The dot size amount on the left can be blended out to the orangey red flush on the right (p/s this product does not have glitter in it, the glitter was leftover on my arm from other swatches that I did).
If you are a regular reader of my blog, you would know that I am currently very into orangey tones, so I obviously really like the colour of this tint. The effect of this is very natural and the product blends very easily and nicely into the skin. This product has a really sweet scent, which reminds me of baby powder for some reason (once you apply it the scent is hardly noticeable).
This product is not very long lasting for a tint, but that being said, it does wear well for about 5-6 hours. It's just that I expect a tint to have better staying power. The colour is not very buildable past the natural flush look so if you like stronger cheek colour, this might not be for you.
