It's almost guaranteed that if I walk into an Etude House I am not going to leave empty handed. This time I picked up a Dear My Wish Lips-talk lipstick in shade BE101 Chic Hollywood Beige. As someone who always immediately goes for the reds, I thought it was about time I try a more nude shade.
The packaging: There's no denying that Etude House is one of the kings of cute packaging. However, as much as I normally love their designs, I'm actually not the biggest fan of this tube. It is adorable though so I'm sure it will appeal to many people.
The colour: As someone who loves dark red shades, I was hesitant about trying a nude lipstick. I found this one to be just fine though since it isn't too light. I'd say it's a nude beige on the warmer side. This swatch has about 3 layers of the product though, so you can see it does build up!
The pigmentation: I was very impressed by how pigmented this lipstick is. My natural lip colour isn't very light but this lipstick covered them pretty easily! These are my lips with two layers on them.
The application: Creamy and easy to apply.
Overall: For someone who isn't into light lipstick shades, I'm surprised at how happy I am that I've added this to my collection. I think the colour suits my pale skin tone and the fact that it's so pigmented means I'll probably be repurchasing it.
Also, I'm very inexperienced with writing beauty reviews so if you have any comments, critiques or suggestions please let me know! I'd love to hear them and take them on board.
