Etude House Dreaming Swan Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk in four lipstick shade selections with the Etude House Dreaming Swan Makeup Collection for Spring 2015 in Korea. Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk Lipstick isn’t a new formula as Etude House does offer it in their permanent range of products however, for the Spring Collection they introduced a few new shades and a little update on the packaging.
Take a look!
Etude House Dreaming Swan Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk is a lightweight soft textured lipstick with a light matte finish. For the Dreaming Swan Collection four new shades of the lipstick were introduced with minor packaging updates as well! The original lipsticks come housed in identical packaging but the Dreaming Swan lipsticks feature a light peachy barrel with a white ribon tie and cute little ballet and ribbon accents decorating the inner barrel of the lipstick versus the pink casing and pink ribbon of the original.
It’s very cute, girly packaging! It is fairly lightweight and made from plastic though but it still has a very sweet, princess-y look and since I put so much importance on nice packaging I’m, of course, in love with it!
I only purchased two shades because I knew I wouldn’t like this formula and also knew the shades would be chalky and milky looking. Thankfully enough one out of the two shades I grabbed worked out well for me. But I think it is safe to say all four shades are likely very milky, pastel pinks and corals! These aren’t terribly flattering on my skin tone so that’s why I skipped.
The formula also reminds me of the VIP Girls Lipstick which I wasn’t keen on! They are a unique lipstick that’s for sure and especially a pick up if you love matte shades.
Etude House Dreaming Swan Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk Swatches (OR225 and PP502)
These start out with a creamy texture and they glide on fairly nicely. They swatch very glossy and have a gel-like feel but the do set to a matte finish. The set is that of a matte powder, yeah, weird I know. But that’s exactly how the finish sets! It’s almost as if I applied lipstick and powdered my lips soon after. Since I’m prone to drier lips they do tend to adhere to every single flake and fall into the natural lines of my lips which gives them a very patchy, uneven appearance. Once applied I find running my finger over my lips gives them a smoother appearance. They have the look of a matte stain and wear for around three hours. Although they have something called a “moist liquid paste system” which ensures hydration I really don’t feel these are moist or hydrating in the least.

Etude House Dreaming Swan Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk (OR225)
They just aren’t a formula I particularly like but I can see them being popular if you love pastels and mattes!
I purchased my Etude House Dreaming Swan Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk Lipsticks from Etude House’s official website but they sold out sadly. However, the original My Blooming Lips-Talk Collection is available for $8.50 each or if you prefer the Dreaming Swan shades you can get them from a variety of E-bay sellers for around $10-$13 each.
