Etude House Sweet Recipe Dear My Jelly Lips

Etude House Sweet Recipe Dear my Jelly Lips Talk are a newly launched lightweight tinted lipstick that Etude House released with their uber cute Sweet Recipe Spring 2013 Collection.

I was a little skeptical going into this purchase as my experience with the Etude House Miss Tangerine Dear Darling Lips was disappointing. Etude House really fancies creamy lipstick and I don’t really love cream lipsticks. Miss Tangerine seemed like they’d be a transparent balm-like lippie but turned out they were a full color cream formula.

No like!

So I was a little worried Dear My Jelly Lipsticks would turn into much the same after getting them and realizing the translucent lipstick I had hoped for appeared quite…CREAM!

This very cute little lipsticks come in eight different shades for a few dollars each depending where you buy them! I recently hauled two shades I followed up by placing an order for the additional six colors and a few shades extra as I wanted to try them out on my eyes and cheeks! Recently Etude House posted a tutorial for using them as an eyeshadow and I def wanted to try that out myself so waiting on my order to give it a whirl! The formula will actually also work great as a cream blush should you want to multitask to the max.

JOR201 and JPK003

These come in a cute lightweight plastic tube with a gem ban in the shade of the lipstick surrounding the base. The packaging is girlishly cute and almost appears like a toy lipstick of some sort.

Inside shades appear to be a cream finish but they actually provide a sheer wash of color on lips with a glossy finish and a lightweight moisturizing formula that tastes like fruity jelly beans with a back note of fresh picked rose petals.

The formula glides onto lips like butter and has a melty consistency which leaves behind a splash of color and shine on lips. They have a shorter wear time of around an hour or two tops but they are easy enough to travel with for touch ups on the go. The two colors I tried were delightful as both looked different on lips. Being sheer I expected the shades to look similiar but you can actually differentiate between shades easily! I hope this proves the case for the other colors.

These aren’t quite a lipstick but a cross between a gloss, a balm, and tinted lip treatment. They keep lips nicely softened and moisturized through the wear, provide a delightful girlish tint to lips, and have a gorgeous formula that leaves lips naturally flushed and glossy!

Really loving these.

Muse Approved for purchase.


A perfect lip treat for Summer (and Spring!).

Anyone try them?

Do share!

E-bay seller Zinopark carries these. I am not affiliated with him but have purchased from him happily in the past.

    Hey Muse! Thanks for reviewing these, I’ve been itching to try them… Would you say they’re moisturising at all? My lips flake so very easily. I know most lip products are very your mileage may vary though…

    • the Muse

      hi sj actually discussed the moisture aspect in the review..did you not see it? ๐Ÿ™‚

      • SJ

        *d’oh!* Sorry Muse! >.< Poor form on my part – now off to e(vil)bay ๐Ÿ˜€

        • the Muse

          lol no worries I mentioned a few time how moisturizing they were ;-D you must have been blinded by the pretty pictures hehehehe!

  • Alanna

    cool (jelly) beans ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m gonna order the lightest pink and the weird yellow glitter one

    after the lipstain tangerine- tastes- like -bug -spray fiasco – I haven’t bought another etude lippy. I might have to give these a shot but I have some missha lemmings right now so we’ll see. Oh and the zinopark seller has a website with the same prices and I swear the shipping was like 3 days faster too but that might of been luck. They sent me a ton of sample packets too and I ended up buying some foamy- powder- toilet -paper- smelling -cleanser as a result of the samples.

    I have a couple of the Kiss Note lipsticks with the bows around them and I learned that I’m able to pop them off and wear them like a ring. These are the same shaped packaging as the kiss note lipsticks.

    I still want to get a couple and try them on my eyes haha like the girl in the video.

    (I am totally just… stalking your blog or something.)

    I just received my one today! Except I bought the yellow shade – here’s hoping it won’t seriously be yellow on my lips haha. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve been wearing one of the Etoinette lipsticks for everyday wear, which have been slightly too colourful for my taste, so I’m hoping I can replace it with this lipstick for my everyday one! ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks for the review and swatches!

    They smell like roses? Not candy like? Is the scent irritating or nice?

  • Dawn

    I have two,jor201 and jor 203(I think). I tend to go for moisturizing lightweight lipsticks so I totally love these!It leaves a stain on my lips and has a sweet scent to it so plus points for that!
    jor201 turned out more peachy coral for me, compared to yours though..
    Only thing I didn’t like was how the packaging’s too girly and toy-like for my taste. But my friend loves it ๐Ÿ˜€
