Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk OR204 Review, Swatches, LOTD

Etude House released a slew of commercial films featuring 2NE1's Sandara Park and the boys from SHINee to herald the arrival of the Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk lipsticks. That is too much fanfare for a mere lipstick!


A play off the Death Note series, the Kiss Note concept for the campaign was that each SHINee member kisses Sandara Park whenever she writes his name down with the aforementioned lipstick.


Jonghyun OR204 - Key RD304 - Taemin OR205 - Minho PK004

Isn't it marvelous if we posses a Kiss Note? Think of the possibilities haha!


Name: Etude House 에뛰드하우스 Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk 디어 마이 블루밍 립스-톡 OR204 Bashful Coral OR204 부끄러운 코랄
Price: ₩ 8,500 for 3.4 g
Release date: 1.3.2012
Made in: Korea

Etude House lipsticks are incredibly cute. However, I felt that the weight and the colour of the tube cheapened the overall look.


OR204 is a soft peachy pink with yellow undertones. The pigmentation is excellent and it takes two swipes or so to get even, full colour coverage. It has the look of a matte with a sheen.



The Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk range is infused with a lovely apricot scent, which is the norm with Etude House lipsticks. It feels fairly drying and will most certainly bleed into lip lines; your lips will appreciate it if you properly moisturize and prep them in advance.


There is a good selection of shades in the range with a variety of oranges, pinks, reds and nudes. I am sure you will find one that flatters your skin tone!

If allow me to compare to Lip butters, this range of lipstick is simply too drying on lips. It'll def show up the lip lines. Colour range is excellent though..

OR204 looks lovely on you! I was wondering how to describe the scent, hehe, but I just couldn't put my finger on it. Luckily only Jonghyun and Key actually kissed Dara in those CFs, hehe, our Taeminnie kissed the window, Minho-ah faked it, and Onew didn't even film. :P Etude House better keep SHINee around forever, keke. <3
