Etude House Dear My Wish RD302 Look + Review
Good evening everyone!
It is important to note that the lipstick looks a bit lighter in these pictures than in real life. The actual color that shows up on the lips is more close to the swatches I did prior to this post:
Almost everyone in my dorm is leaving Korea next Monday so it's a very depressing mood lately. Everyone is sending their shopping goods back home and busy packing up all their things. I didn't bond with most of them anyway so I'm happy I don't have to say goodbye to my friends just yet :) However, I also did some packing today as I'll fly to Japan on Monday! Can't believe the time is finally here...the last two weeks have been terribly slow. I got many requests for showing how the Etude House's Dear My Wish lipstick in RD302 looks like when worn and I shall deliver.
You can definitely see that the color shows up darker on the outlines of my lips and I am not sure why that is. I did apply the lipstick directly from the tube, but I think this would definitely better to be applied with a lip brush because it wears patchy very easily. When blotted, this color can even be worn on an everyday basis as it takes away from the boldness of the color. :)
The lipstick itself is very smooth - in fact almost too smooth! Direct application is very tricky and can get messy easily so please take my lip brush advice to heart. I would also recommend a good base + lip pencil to make this last longer. Due to its smooth consistency it wears down soon if you drink/snack a lot - I couldn't manage to drink my tea without leaving a lip stain behind every single time. So if you don't mind reapplication and a bit more care when it comes to lipsticks you will get an absolutely non-drying lipstick in a gorgeous color. If you are drinking tea like me 24/7, than this will be your special lipstick for days when you feel like putting in the effort, but it probably won't be my go-to lipstick.
I'll be driving to Ansan tomorrow, almost an hour outside of Seoul, to visit my lovely friend Susan one last time before I'll leave for Japan! I packed her some German chocolate, ginger bread and facemasks as Christmas presents and hope we have a relaxing day. Oh and enjoy these pictures of me with "long" hair, because they will be the last in quite some time that you'll see! :D
Have a nice weekend!
