Review of Etude House’s Color In Liquid Lips in PK009 Pink in Monster

Etude House’s Color In Liquid Lips are something of a highly pigmented gloss and lipstick hybrid. The Color In Liquid Lips is designed to give vivid and bright color and a glowing effect on the lips. There are many shades in this line, the particular color I’m reviewing is PK009, the shade is a purple-cranberry. Ingredients include: castor seed oil (anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, moisturizing), sweet almond oil (moisturizing, anti-wrinkle, anti-aging, heals chapped lips) and sunflower seed oil (vitamin-rich, aids in moisture retention, nourishing, moisturizing). This products retails for between $7-10 USD, you can get it here for $7.53 + free shipping.

The Color In Liquid Lips is pretty similar to Memebox’s I’M LIP LIQUID line. The consistency of the product is very silky and it isn’t quite a gloss and it isn’t quite a lipstick, it’s somewhere in between; it goes on with a slightly moussey texture and feels light on the lips. The color isn’t completely opaque, but it’s really close. There is 3.5 grams (0.12 oz) of product and it has a slightly fruity scent.

The applicator is a larger doe foot and can be quite tricky to use as it holds lots of product.

What I like: this product is really smooth and silky on the lips and it’s very pigmented. It’s also comfortable and has lovely moisturizing ingredients. The packaging is just so fun, I love the design. The price for these lippies is also inexpensive and the product just has a high quality feel. What I don’t like: I don’t care for the type of applicator, it’s too big and it can be messy lol.

Pros:

Highly pigmented

Comfortable on the lips

Good ingredients

Lovely color

Adorable packaging

Cons:

Applicator is not my favorite

Will I buy again?

Yes, it’s a great product
