Etude House Honey Cera Lip Oil Review

Etude House Honey Cera Treatment Lip Oil

Hello everyone!

As I’m writing this review we are having major snow/freezing rain in Canada! On that note, I thought that a lip oil review would be suitable for today’s post.

I have wanted to try a lip oil for a while now and had my eye on the Clarins’ one and was about to purchase until I stumbled upon this one by Etude House on eBay. The packaging looks almost identical and the name ‘honey’ made me think of a sweet nourishing formula. I decided to give this one a try and at only $10 CAD (Clarins’ lip oil is $25 CAD) I really wasn’t going to lose much if I didn’t enjoy it.

Upon applying the product I noticed the applicator and again, this looks identical to the Clarins’ applicator. It picks up a good amount of product and allows for quick even application. This has a pleasant sweet scent and it feels great on the lips! Not heavy; but a nice light-weight oil that has a gorgeous shine (as oils do!). I have applied this on top of lipstick and lip liner however, that was not a good idea because oil tends to rub off any traces of makeup however the shine is so gorgeous and long wearing while still comfortable that I wanted it to work. Now, I will mostly use this at night or on no makeup days or at least no lipstick days.

All in all, this is a good product and I currently have used most of it up and plan to finish and repurchase for next winter. Item contains 7ml of product and contains expiry date on bottom which I appreciate.

Pretty Girl Lip Gloss Treatment Review + Swatches

Pretty Girl Lip Gloss Treatment

Hi again!

These glosses are advertised as being extremely long wearing and I was skeptical about that until I tried it and realized that this formula is unlike anything I’ve used before.

The shades are beautiful and they are fairly pigmented with just one swipe. (swatches are at the bottom of post)

This clear gloss is named “Darling!”

This very pale light pink with shimmer is named “Soul Mates”

This is my favourite shade – a peachy pink named “Love of All Loves!”

This is a hot pink fuchsia shade named “Baby Love”

Lastly, this is a terracotta burgundy shade named “Hey Lover!” A perfect shade for fall.

This formula binds with skin but not with itself. When I apply it on my lips or when I was doing the swatches below it grips onto my skin similar to how honey sticks. However, it does not feel sticky when you press your lips together. The formula of “Baby Love” and “Love of All Loves!” is not sticky at all and slippery when I rubbed my lips together but it had a strong scent which wasn’t a bad scent but it was there until I removed it after many hours. The other three glosses did not have any scent and the formula itself was a bit tacky but it was not bothersome to me. This is a heavy gloss and I can definitely sense it on my lips; this is what allows it to be long wearing.

I applied this in the morning and after 3-4 hours it looked exactly the same as when I applied it. I ate my lunch and after that I noticed that my lips were much less glossy but the color and shine were still there and I was happy with it and did not feel the need to apply it again. After 6-7 hours the shine was considerably less but the color was still present. When I wiped the remaining product off my lips I noticed that my lips looked very moisturized and were very soft. This is because this product is a lip gloss and a lip treatment; it contains macadamia nut oil, olive oil, shea butter, grape seed oil and lastly Vitamin E.
