If you want proof that time go by too quickly: I unboxed these on 31st October last year, and now I'm posting photos! I sternly told myself:
You cannot click anymore photos until you have posted all the ones in your computer first. Put your camera down I say!
First of all, what a long name! 'Dear My Blooming Lips-talk'. It doesn't even make sense! Well, unless it's a short cryptic love note:
Blooming Lips Talk.
Why do I write these things?! On to the lippies.....
Finish ~ Creamy & doesn't sit well on the lips. I'd say only a little bit less creamy than YSL Rouge Volupte Lipsticks, which I'm not a fan of.
The Good ~ Packaging | Design | Inexpensive for how adorable the packaging is | Has a mild grapefruit (I think) scent | You get a lipstick & bow ring, coz those bows can be taken out! Although they're too big for my fingers.
The Bad ~ The texture emphasizes lines & locking lips makes it look patchy | Lip swatches below were done on chapped lips, and they didn't look good | Weak staying power | Available only online- for most of us.
(RD304, PK005) Doodly heart & crowns carvings on the lipsticks ...super cute!
Etude Dear My Blooming Lips Talk PK005 ~ Described as 'In Love Pink'. This type of light pink is my favorite, and more flattering on me than pinks like MAC Angel.
Etude Dear My Blooming Lips Talk RD304 ~ Described as 'Thrilling Red', but it's more of a deep coral pink. It's really pretty, and my favorite of the two. It also leaves a subtle stain after wearing off.
Swatches ~ Top: PK005, Bottom: RD304
I clicked the lip swatches below in the evening when it was getting dark, so the photos look dull & inaccurate. I didn't feel like posting them, but just to give you an idea of the finish....
Etude Dear My Blooming Lips Talk RD304 Swatch
Etude Dear My Blooming Lips Talk PK005 Swatch. Looks more cool-toned than it really is.
Price ~ Rs.591 ($10.99) from Ebay (seller & other details here)
My Rating: Mixed.....
- Texture ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ 3/5
- Packaging ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ 5/5 (Of Course!)
Have a great day! I'm heading to MAC for Archie's Girls today! The wait is finally ov.....actually, I need to call them first to make sure they are definitely launching it today. If so, will post photos tomorrow! =)
Hope you like the new pink signature..............
