As you know from my prior Musings Korean Brand, Etude House has released Miss Tangerine which is a collection that features vibrant shades of orange for Spring.
So far, Miss Tangerine has been a fun journey but some of the lip products haven’t quite lived up to my expectations. The stains had a way bitter taste and the two selections of lipsticks were a bit too orange for me!
With all this in mind I didn’t set my hopes to high for the last of the lip products featured with the collection which are the Sweet Shower Lips.
Let’s take a look!
A moisturizing lip treatment that adds shine and a burst of sunny color to lips!
Finally Etude House got it right! I’m very pleased with the Sweet Shower Lips as they really embody the collection!
The formula features a true tangerine fragrance and flavor unlike many of the other lip products in the collection that lack flavor or scent and also have a highly moisturizing, wearable formula. My main problem with the other lip products was the fact that the formula had a heavy cream finish, this combined with the orange shades really made them difficult to wear. Sweet Shower Lips suffers none of the same downfalls as the formula manages to stay lightweight with a highly moisturizing formula, a lovely shine, and just the right kiss of color.
Five colors total were released most of which are variations of orange and tangerine but no worries all are very wearable due to the lighter pigment of each as you’re not getting a heavily pigmented lip product but one that just gives the right amount of color without being too bold, too crazy, or too heavy!
I was pretty impressed with the packaging as well considering the lipsticks are somewhat immature. The lipsticks are adorable don’t get me wrong but they do look like a little girl’s makeup where as the Sweet Shower Lips have a heavier feel and elegant packaging that celebrates the “Tangerine” theme!
I purchased all five shades which include:
- Shiny Pinkshower (pale pink)
- Sweetberry Blossom (red pink)
- Miss Sunny Tangerine (orange-y tangerine)
- Miss Tangerine Tangerine (true tangerine)
- Sweet Peach Shower (light coral peach)
All the shades proved completely wearable for me but I really loved Miss Tangerine Tangerine which was exactly the shade of darker tangerine I’ve been seeking!
These have a twist up design but you have to be really careful not to twist too much product up as they twist up fine but prove difficult twisting back down!
- Anyone seeking wearable shades of tangerine and orange for Spring.
- Those wanting a moisturizing lip treatment with just a bit of color and a shiny finish!
- Those who are sensitive to fragrance or flavor in their lip products (these feature a tangerine taste and scent).
- Those who aren’t loving the idea of airmail, online shopping, etc…(Etude House is a Korean brand that is available within Korea and a few Asian countries but not the US).
Overall, I really enjoyed these and thought they were one of the stars of the collection. I had a little bit of a problem pulling off alot of the other lip products introduced with this collection but Sweet Shower Lips were exactly what I was hoping for and I love the novelty of the tangerine scent and taste!
I had a friend get these from Korea for me and only paid a few dollars for each but I’ve seen them online for around $9.99-$10.99 which I think is a fair deal for a product of this quality!
Well worth picking up!
Muse Approved for purchase!
