Cosmetic Review: Etude House, Dear My Blooming Lipstalk and Blooming eyes.

So it's been a while, but remember I went cosmetics shopping in Korea? I have another review today :) This is the one I was the most excited about!! Because my new favourite lipstick is in it ;)
This review is for the stuff I bought at Etude House from the Dear My line, two lipsticks and an eye palette!

and I have a cute blush brush but I have no occasion to use it...

Let me start off with the lipsticks!
Of course when I went to Etude House, I was really excited about the cute Princess Etoinette line, but when I used the testers, sadly, the lipsticks from that line weren't what I was looking for, they were glossy and stuff. These Dear My Blooming Lipstalk lipsticks are really...lipstick like, I bought them because I was looking for exactly something like this, covering, lasting, obviously I'm quite excited about them~

I think the packages look very cute, and I love the elegant logo on the actual lipstick!

Let's look at the colors, I bought an orange (OR206) and pink one (PK004), the pink is very very pink but it doesn't show that pink on some pictures, I don't know how to fix it :(

The colors show up so-so on my hand, but on my lips they are extremely covering!!!!
They are exactly what I was looking for, one thing you have to give Etude House is that you can use thick and bright lipsticks but still look young and fresh..

Let me start with the pink, in my opinion the picture washed out the color a little, but the point is, it's so covering...it doesn't look like there's lipstick on my lip, it really just looks like this is my lip color...I love it so much! I have a lot of Rady inspired looks in mind and I already wore one you will see it soon and you'll see how bright this pink really is ;)

The orange is so heavy, in the picture I look like a little duck with an orange beak~ but again...it's so...blendy it doesn't look like lipstick! Looks more like photoshop~ Real life photoshop~

The lipstick lasts long, I put it on in the early afternoon, and even after dinner it was still on~ I'm not usually a big lipstick or lip-color fan but if it's these, I'm totally into it, the colors are young and it's comfortable and lasting~

Lasting effect:★★★★★


The eye palette is a different story.. some of my friends have heard me complain about it..
The box is so cute and there are different palettes but I thought these colors (PP501 Swaying Heart Purple) would be cute for me.. Though to be honest not all the colors I saw online were in store, so maybe if they all were, I would have gone for another color... The biggest problem I have with these is the color..

These are the colors on my hand, the light pink and aubergine on the top, dark and light brown below that.

As you can see, the pink is shimmery and much lighter than it looks on the palette, the aubergine color is very dark, the color is thick and shows up far darker than I thought.. I put it on a few times, I keep trying, but no matter how much I try, the stuff is all over the place, it applies a little messy... the colors are strange on my face too, I feel very Galliano 2007-8 :/ but not in a good way... 
The colors show up very harsh in the dark, but they are almost invisible in the light, so on the pictures it's hard to see the layering of the colors..

Hardly visible! But in the night I look like I've been rubbing a liquid eggplant on my eyes...the picture at the bottom of the post shows the issue a little more~
I'm still trying and I'm not giving up on this eyeshadow, I paid for it so I want it to work~ It lasts long, the box is cute, the colors look cute in the box too! But right now, I'm really just disappointed. The colors might still be cute on someone with a different skintone or haircolor, but even then, the colors show up very differently according to the light you're in, and it looks smudgy and messy..

Lasting effect:★★★★☆
