[REVIEW] Etude House Dear My Glass Tinting Lips Talk PK009 Cherry Blossom Shower

Etude House Dear My Glass Tinting Lips Talk PK009 Cherry Blossom Shower Review:

As previously mentioned I am a sucker for cute designs and packaging. When Etude House first came out with these lipsticks that you buy separate from the case, I couldn’t resist buying some. After all, I love the fact that we can choose a pretty case and then choose which lip stick to put in the case. So, when Etude House came out with spring themed cherry blossom designed cases, I knew I had to get some.

I’m not someone who wears a lot of lipstick or make up, but I’ve been trying to change that. Which is also why I decided to buy and try some lipsticks. I wasn’t sure which color to get at first, so when I saw that they had a light glittery pink, I decided to grab it. Cherry Blossom shower (this color) is the only glass tinting shade of these limited lip sticks, and it looks more like a glittering lip balm (which sounds perfect to me) than an actual lipstick.

Like Etude House’s previous Dear My Glass/Matte Tinting Lips talk collections, the lipstick and case is sold separately. Personally, I like this opportunity to choose a custom case and lipstick color, I think it’s a great idea although it does get expensive if you like multiple cases. Once you have a lipstick case you love, you can just buy the different color refills and just use the one case so it’s great in that sense too, if you have a case you love.

The first color I chose is a light glittery pink, almost transparent which I think is great for an understated look. I think this can also be used over the other matte lipsticks to make them glossy and shiny, so it’s actually a very handy lipstick to have. You can use it on its own or use with another lipstick to add a little gloss and glitter.

From the pictures you can see that the lipsticks even have a flower cut into the top, the design is very lovely I think. It’s a great touch to these limited-edition lip sticks, and I love that they’ve shaped them into a flower as well. The lipstick itself even smells faintly of cherry, it has a mild but pleasing scent.

Etude House has really put a lot of effort into these lipsticks, so I hope they will sell them for some time and not get rid of them too quickly. Compared to the previous versions, they seem to have put a lot of thought into the cases, the design of the lipstick and even making them smell sweet.

I’ve only had this lipstick for a few weeks, and initially I wanted to get a good photo of the flower in the top. Because it is such a light pink color and so glittery, it was really hard to capture a clear shot of the flower. Although I succeeded in the end, but it took a lot of efforts even to find a background that would work with this lipstick and case.

Now onto the lipstick – as you can see in the swatches it is a very light glittery pink. I had to apply it 3~4 times for it show up on my hand. I think it does darken after a few seconds – like at first, it’s completely clear with just glitter but then it slowly becomes a faint pink. The glitter itself is very pretty and quite obvious too.

After using it for a few times, it is obvious that the lipstick darkens, because the edges of the lipstick have become a slightly darker pink. Not because I was wearing a darker color – but rather because the lipstick itself darkens slightly.

But essentially, I was right in saying this is more of a lip gloss with glitter than a lipstick because it goes from being clear with glitter to a very light pink (as seen in the swatches). Etude House might even say that on their website. For me this is perfect for an everyday “lipstick” because it just adds a bit of subtle shine to your lips, and the glitter just adds an extra touch of detail. So, it’s more noticeable than straight up lip balm but not as bright as a deeply pigmented lipstick.

The subtle shade of pink is much more noticeable on the lips too, I mean it adds to your natural color and just makes it a little pinker and darker. The glitter just catches the light as well, I suppose it could be a bit much for everyday use, but it certainly highlights your lips. The glitter is less obvious from a distance though, so from afar my lips just look a little shiny and pink. I tried to get a photo of my lips with the lipstick – but they didn’t turn out very well.

The biggest issue with this lipstick is that because it is glossy and glittery, you end up with glittery gloss all over your glasses and cups. I guess it’s common with lipsticks but glittery shimmer somehow looks worse to me because it is more obvious. And sometimes it’s harder to wipe off without getting glitter everywhere.

Still I do like the subtle pink shade and the fact that glitter is less noticeable from a distance. The glitter looks large in the lipstick, but the glitter pieces are very tiny and fine particles, so it makes it less obvious.

It lasts about as long as the previous glass tinting lipsticks, although the glitter depends to disappear faster. But I do like how the lipstick leaves a subtle tint of color to your lips, and that it lasts for several hours. So even if you drink a lot (like me) and end up with glitter all over your water glasses, your lips still have that subtle pink color added to them.

It lasts at least 3~4 hours without reapplication, the darker shades probably last longer. But this pink to me is more like my natural lip color, but slightly darker and a nicer shade of pink.

In conclusion I do like this shade a lot, I like the soft pink color of it and the glittery aspect of it too. I think it’s a subtle spring lipstick for people like me who don’t like too dark or bright lipsticks. It is a light pink so I think it would suit every skin tone as well.

Would I buy this shade again? Yes, I think I would because I like this type of light glossy lipstick and I am a fan of glitter. Glitter on my lips is less of a problem than glitter on my eyelids. I think this lipstick would suit every undertone because it is light and not too pigmented.

It might be too light if your lips are very dark but I think it would work for most people’s lips. I recommend it for people who like understated and light pink lipsticks.
