These Etude House Color Lips Fit liquid lipsticks grabbed my attention when I was “researching” on the Gel Liquid eyeliner they sent me. One of my beauty resolutions this 2014 was to explore more of the Asian brands – I’ve dabbled with Japanese (K-Palette, Pixy, Heroine Make) but was too preoccupied on other things that I seem to have overlooked the powerhouse that is Korea when it comes to cosmetics. Etude House will have to be my entry point, then.
If the Lips Fit…
Etude House Color Lips Fit
I was previously at the NARS counter swatching the Audacious lipsticks prior to entering Etude House so I still had those darn lipsticks lingering in my head. While quietly swatching the liners, an SA – with a super pigmented matte lipstick on – came up beside me to assist me. Of course I had to ask what she was wearing. Care to guess what it was?
These Color Lips Fit liquid lipsticks feel somewhat like the NYX Matte Lip Creams – they apply as liquid but quickly set to a powdery matte stain. They “hug” the lips so if your lips are dry, it will definitely accentuate the dry patches. Etude recommends wearing a lip balm prior – but then wouldn’t that defeat the matte look you’re after? Proper exfoliation + not so balmy/glossy lip balm = best base combo (for any matte lipstick esp if you’re like me who’s plagued with dry lips). But when these dry, they really feel weightless – and as if you’ve just put on powder on your lips.
What’s interesting is these don’t make my lips crack like the NYX matte lip creams or any other drying matte lipsticks do. It may be my lips have adapted and developed resistance to cracking and peeling – but it’s most probably that these Lip Fits are not so intensely drying. Wear time is average – after a meal, it will look more like a heavy stain than lipstick. They also feather a bit as time passes, especially the deeper shades.
I’ve to note that pigmentation differs from shade to shade. Perfect Fit Red is the most pigmented – almost covering lip lines and everything else. I mean, look at that. Fantasy Fit Pink is the least pigmented – quite patchy and line-accentuating. But it’s the shade I liked most ‘cos it’s a beautiful coral, so shame it’s the fussiest among the shades. The lightest, See-Thru Fit Beige is the most line-accentuating, sigh. Wanna Fit Orange is an orange I feel like I can pull off as it has quite a a bit of red in it, which I prefer. Because of the intense pigment, I think Perfect Fit Red is my favorite out of all these – it’s a pinky red that reminds me of MAC Ronnie Red.
I’ve a soft spot for these Color Fit Lips lipsticks. One day I like them, other times I feel they’re too fussy. Once on, they feel drying (because of their powdery dry formula) but what’s important is throughout the day, they don’t make my lips any more drier. No lip cracking or bleeding – which happens to me even to non-mattes – so I’m very happy with these in that aspect. However, they settle in lip lines and tend to accentuate flakies and dry patches so it’s like you have to have perfect lips to be able to wear these flawlessly.
So yes, since the formula isn’t so unique in the market, it’s up to you to judge if you need these or not. I personally love the bright shades in this range – as they’re all wearable and not too garish. Not quite apt for the season, but you know what they say, if the lips fit….
