So, I’ve mentioned in my previous posting that I’ve pulled my boyfie into Etude House in Sunway Pyramid after telling him that Flamingo Bloom is having a collaboration with them. (He loves milk tea.) By purchase a drink, you’ll get a 10% discount in Etude House, vice-versa, if you purchased anything in Etude House, you’d get a 10% discount for Flamingo Bloom. After making a short math discussion, we’d settled with buying Flaming Bloom first, then Etude House.
Within a short walk into the shop, I showed him a few colours and gave him a few hints. He got me 3 products eventually. (Thank you 💕 gwah~) One of them is mentioned in this blog post! Read the other two by clicking the link below!
Cherry Blossom Dear My Lips-Talk Case
Dear My Glass Tinting Lips Talk
Moist Texture w/ Vivid Colour
Vivid cherry-like lip effect multi-coloured lip balm
“Moisture and vivid colour all at once!
Multi-colour lip balm makes the lips look like cherry and full of revitalizing shine.”
“촉촉한 보습과 생생한 컬러가 한번에!
생기빛 가득한 앵두알 입술을 연출해주는 멀티 컬러립밤”
This product range has 5 colours in total. The first section features two colours that change depending on your lip moisture level.
The second section features colours that have vivid tinting colours in the balm.
I only chose one colour, which is the one at the end (BE101), because I feel that it is more suitable for a daily look and I wanted a lighter coloured lip colour with moisturizing effects.

Each site explains the ingredients in different ways.
Glossy and vivid cherry colour
From natural pure colour to vivid cherry colour that makes your lips more vivid and full of vigour
Long lasting moist and vivid lips
The lip balm that has sweet cherry extract and nourishing oil adheres tightly as if melting into the lips and helps to make cherry-like soft lips
Lovely Sweet Scent
The sweet peach scent makes you feel good.
How to use:
1. Roll up a little, then apply it on your lips smoothly
2. Use it whenever you feel dryness. It is helpful for your moist lips with vivid colours.
The gliding was smooth and the colour payoff was decently well-done as seen from the photos. You can build colour with multiple swipes

I’ve used a cotton pad with some makeup remover to go one swipe on the swatches and they came off effortlessly. The staining was minimal too.
The gliding was super easy and although the colour payoff was not intense, it was not expected to be that way as it is just a lip balm. Lip balms are designed to have a minimal colour deposit so it is fine. The colour fits the everyday makeup look as well as another makeup look if the user intends to look more sweet and innocent. Although it is already glossy, the lip balm has some glitter in it which enhances the shiny appearance on the user.
Smell: Similar to strawberry flavoured Pokki sticks
Texture: Glossy smooth
Colour: Decent deposits; has glitter
The smell of the lip balm reminds me of the strawberry flavoured Pokki sticks which smelled absolutely delicious. The length of the lip balm was surprisingly long as a typical one would usually be shorter. The hardness of the stick is nicely hard as compared to typical lip balms, good for people who are as rough as me. The texture of the lip balm is smooth and lightweight. It does not give the sticky sensation, so as the residue. Re-application would be needed after consuming food and/or beverage. The tinting feature is not prominent as it is not a main feature of lip balms.
Colour Payoff: ✨✨✨
Repurchase: Nyah, maybe. Maybe not.
Reason: This product can be easily substituted with other lip balm products (excluding the smell) and I would like to try other products that are made with different formulas too. So depending on the availability of substitute, my decision to repurchase varies.
That’s all for this post!
