Etude House Dear My Enamel Lips-Talk is fairly new moisturizing lipstick formula that leaves lips plump, smooth, and hydrate. I’ve been so swamped with the Holiday and everything else going on in my life that I didn’t get a chance to blog the Etude House My Little Nut Holiday 2016 Collection which has several shades of Etude House Dear My Enamel Lips-Talk in limited edition packaging. I actually have those as well and will review them shortly.
But for now, let’s discuss the Etude House Dear My Enamel Lips-Talk a bit.
Note: I’ll update shortly with swatches. I misplaced the swatch picture I took? Sorry!
Etude House has this knack for creating a lipstick formula and running it to death. They’ll release it, relaunch it in new packaging, relaunch it with a new collection, yada, yada, yada…they work it to death in a variety of different ways and I have a funny feel Dear My Enamel Lips-Talk is the next lipstick to join the crowd.
None the less, I just recently tried it about a month ago so, I’m not quite feeling all that worked over yet even when it made a reappearance in the My Little Nut Holiday Collection!
I always adore Etude House’s packaging. It’s girly, princess-y, and totally reminds me of a toy. This particular lipstick comes housed in a lightweight pink plastic barrel with a ruffle design and gold accents. It’s lightweight yes but when you display this on your vanity it looks absolutely adorable. I’m partial to cute makeup! It’s funny as I love elegant antiques but when it comes to cute stuff! I’m all over it.
As I said earlier, Etude House loves to run with a formula and tends to rename products when in fact they aren’t new at all. This is the case with lipsticks and eyeshadows mostly. I’m happy to say I don’t feel like Dear My Enamel Lips-Talk is like anything they currently have in their permanent collection. This is a balmy lipstick that has a nice moisturizing feel on lips that wears for a solid give hours without migration or feathering issues. If you have drier lips, you’ll like the balmy texture as it feels quite nicely moisturizing. The pigment is awesome and applies with opaque coverage on a single pass and only builds to look even better and more intense. I did experience one issue which is the fact it likes to cling to my drier lips. I have to exfoliate prior to application otherwise the finish looks less than smooth. It does have a nice shiny finish and has absolutely no fragrance or flavor.
Etude House Dear My Enamel Lips-Talk is a nice little lippie if you’re not prone to drier lips. Oddly enough the moisturizing formula is ideal for dry lips but the problem is the formula likes to cling to dry areas! This one is lovely if you exfoliate prior and prep well before application. It wears comfortable but it isn’t a lightweight formula in the least and definitely makes itself known. The shine and long wear are definitely a plus and the lack of flavor and fagrance is perfect for sensitive users. Not to mention the price which is around $10 to $12 per shade.
