Review: Etude House VIP Girl Dear Darling Lipstick

I'm thankful that the area where I worked has many stalls that sell bargains. And take note it changes every week so I get to check lots of bargain variations but my pocket seems to contests to it. Hahaha!

Anyway, I'm going to share with you an item I bought on a bargain when Etude House set up a stall on Raffles Exchange. It's a lipstick called Etude House VIP Girl Dear Darling Lips in PK009. I love Etude House stores because of its girly design which would totally catch a girl's attention.

Product Review

VIP Girl Dear Darling lipstick is very creamy with a full-color payoff. The finish has a bit gloss to it. So it's okay to snob your lip gloss for a while, yeah? It has a slick feel to it too which is why it doesn't last long.

Bottom left from the photo above is a swatch of VIP Girl's PK009.

  • Very pigmented.
  • Applies easily.
  • Lovely packaging. I love the pink girly-girly packaging it has.
  • Has a bit of gloss to it. No need to apply lip gloss on it.
  • Affordable. If I could remember it right I bought it around $5-10 SGD.
  • Fruity scent.
  • No odd taste.
  • Opaque.

  • Makes lips flaky. It's important to do a lip scrub so that it won't be very obvious.
  • Doesn't last long. It only takes 1-2 hours. But after an hour it's boldness and richness starts to fade off.
  • Doesn't apply evenly.
  • I find this drying even though it applies smoothly.

How It Looks On

This color strongly reminds me of barbie's lipstick, would you agree with me?

In Conclusion

I'm not really a fan of bold lipsticks but I personally think it's good to keep a few colors in my collection. To be honest, I personally don't like this lipstick. I don't like that it flakes the skin of my lips and that it doesn't apply evenly. I won't be buying this again. Sorry, it's thumbs down for me.
