Etude House Sweet Recipe Dear My Jelly Lips-Talk in JBE101

Hey beauties!

Are you a fan of translucent lipsticks?
I'm very much in-love with bold colors that I barely have any lipsticks that are on the sheer side right now.

So anyway, I got this lipstick from an event by Etude House a few weeks back... 

Etude House Sweet Recipe Dear My Jelly Lips-Talk in JBE101

This is at Php478.00.

Here's what's on the packaging:

Here are further product descriptions from the press kit:

Jelly textured lipstick supplies moist shine and sweet colors for long wear comfort.

•Xylitol : Sweet Flavor
•Bilberry, Sugar Cane, Sugar Maple, Orange and Lemon extracts
•Translucent Colors
•Fruit Jelly Fragrance
•Moist Shine & Jelly Bean Texture

As seen in the descriptions above, this lippie is translucent so I wasn't really looking forward on using this.

And it's yellow.
When I saw that it was yellow, I first thought that it must be one of those magic lipsticks that changes color after application. But it's not. So thank goodness that it is translucent or else I don't think I can casually wear yellow lips. :P

This lipstick smells so good! It smells like a lemon-flavored jellybean! Yummmm! 
It doesn't taste like it though. There's barely any taste actually. And there's also a lovely engraved design on the lipstick bullet though you can barely see it in this picture. I think it looks nice as well as the packaging. SUPER CUTE!

Here's a swatch on paper

and a swatch on my hand

It does give a moist finish. It looks like it's just water.

Here are before and after pictures:

With the product

It really gives an instant shine. My lips look very moisturized... It doesn't just give the moisturized-effect on your lips but also moisturize them as well! It also leaves a few shimmery/glittery effect too. There are fine glitters in it! This also has a buttery feel to it so it glides quickly to the lips.

Since this doesn't leave any color on my lips, I think this is more like a lip balm and lipgloss in one. The other shades give better color - now those I can say are lipstick, lip balm, and lipgloss in one. This lipstick range is available in 6 shades. 

So what do I think about it?
This particular shade, I'm not a fan of. Probably because it doesn't give any color. It's just a plain lip balm with a very watery effect... a quite expensive one at that for a lip balm. But I'm willing to try the other shades, especially the JPK002. :P

Have you tried any of the lipsticks in the Sweet Recipe line of Etude House? Which one? :)




  1. I can totally understand how this shade doesn't excite you! I find that at least one third of all their products tend to be sheer or of little color but I really can't call this one a 'shade' its like a clear balm!

  2. ohhh nice review sis but i guess i need to skip this one...

  3. Sharlynn - So true. Probably why I don't buy lipsticks from EH. I like my lips bold in color! :P

    Frozen Blossoms - I wouldn't buy this myself. Good thing it's free! :P

  4. I thought it would have been more peachy.
    im glad i didnt purchase it .

    thanks for the review

  5. I have this one too and it really doesn't really show up on my lips.
