Etude House LUCIDarling Fantastic Rouge Lipstick Swatches & Review

This is part of my second Etude House Haul which I got from Korea – and a rather nice haul it was too!

I was so impressed by the Etude House LUCIDarling Fantastic Rouge Lipstick that I picked up too more from eBay:

I got shade 04, LED Pink and 08, Orange. They look quite pigmented in the barrels and they are, but they look slightly different when swatched:

I love how Etude House provide you with images of the colours on the lips:

There’s a lot of pinks in this range – 01, 04, 05, 07 and 09 are all pinks. I already have 10 which is a gorgeous nude brown and I’d quite like 02, a gorgeous red.

Here are the swatches – clearly pink and a coral/orange here:

I’ve covered the texture and my thoughts on the formula in my previous post – in short,I love the creamy, pigmented texture its close to YSL’s Rouge Volupte (not quite as soft and creamy, but almost) and it really covers the lips well.

HOWEVER – when your lips and dry, these opaque lipsticks are quite unforgiving. Use on hydrated lips!

These are really lovely lipsticks, a little limited in terms of shade, and I dislike the cheap feeling packaging, but still, highly recommended.
