Review & Swatches: Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips-talk, Tear Eye Liner, Bling Bling Eye Stick, and Lovely Cookie Blush

My post-holiday brain can think of nothing but spring, and Etude House is making it a little bit easier with some fantastic pink products! Unlike previous collections I've reviewed from them, all of these products are in their permanent line, and it's a good thing since I could do with a pink-me-up any time of the year!

Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher in Grapefruit Jelly ($9.50) - This lightly pigmented soft pink blush is very soft and applies evenly. The adorable rounded packaging comes with a powder puff that's actually pretty great to use for application - unlike so many cheap-feeling brushes or sponges that tend to come with powder products. With a drugstore price and high end performance, this blush is one to check out! Check out the tutorial at the bottom of the post to see it in use.

Bling Bling Eye Stick in Pink Supernova ($10.00)- My first experience with these pencils were from the Bling in the Sea Collection, and I loved them them too! The consistency is creamy, and Pink Supernova is pigmented enough to be used as a liner, shadow base, or even as a shadow worn alone. The thickness of the pencil makes it easy to do so as well - no too thick to be cumbersome, but no so thin that it takes forever to apply to the entire eye lid. I have a little issue with this particular stick staying put in my inner corner due to excessively watery eyes, but it performs beautifully worn anywhere else, and for $10, it too is worth looking at.

Tear Eyeliner in #01 ($11.40) - Not one to wear noticeable shimmer on a daily basis, this was a hard product to learn how to wear. With a liquid eyeliner consistency and nearly opaque pearl shimmer, it comes with a thin brush applicator well-suited for applying like liquid liner to the upper lash line. After looking around for application tips, I found the product page recommend the user apply it underneath the lower lash line for the appearance of larger eyes. While it's definitely noticeable, I really like the effect for a night out! For $11.40, it's not a must-have for me. But it is an affordable way to create a fun, different effect on the eyes.

Dear My Lips-Talk in PK 005 ($12.29)- One of the things Etude House does consistently well is their lipsticks. From the Jelly finish to the Etoinette Crystal Shine Lips-Talk, they are always smooth, pigmented, and long-lasting. PK005 is no different! It wears very comfortably on the lips and, while the creamy finish may wear off over the course of an hour or two, the color stains the lips and stays with you for 3+ hours. At $12.29, they are slightly more than a drugstore lipstick, but are made well worth it with the performance and beautiful packaging.
