The last time I was in Etude House, I was shopping for a friend, but then this Etude House Bling Me Prism Color in Liquid Lips in PK012 was all like, “Jiawun, Jiawun! Over here! Can you not see how beautiful I am? You obviously need me in your life” and I mean, you can’t argue with a liquid lipstick, can you? (or do you not talk to liquid lipsticks at all?) There are a bunch of shades in their normal Color in Liquid Lips range, but Etude House put out 5 more colours with their Bling Me Prism range for Summer 2015. I only picked this one up because it’s a colour that I don’t have in my collection and because it’s so gorgeous and different (you’ll see why!).
The applicator of this is a tear shaped, doe-foot, similar to their normal Color in Liquid Lips range. However, the width of the tear shape on the Bling Me Prism ones are less wide. There is also a little hole in the middle of the applicator, and that is where the product will be when you pull the applicator out of the tube, and the rest of the applicator will have no product. I like this feature because it helps to make sure I don’t get too much product onto my lips (which will look gloopy). When you apply the product at the centre of your lips, the hole will lay down the product onto your lips and the doe-foot helps to spread and blend it out seamlessly.
The Etude House Bling Me Prism Liquid Lips in PK012 is a light peachy-pink shade that reflects a beautiful golden shimmer. The gold shimmer is more obvious in certain lightings and angles. This colour is pretty sheer – it gives a sheer wash of pink on my lips and adds the golden shimmer. This can be worn alone or on top of other lipsticks. If you like nudes and want to bring it up a notch, this is great to wear on it’s own because the golden shimmer is beautiful! I don’t really like wearing nudes on my lips so I always put this on top of other lipsticks.
For casual every day wear, I like to top it over a pink lipstick and it just gives the most beautiful shimmer on the lips. Putting it on top of red lips is also gorgeous, especially for the holiday season.
The formula of this is thicker than a normal gloss since it’s supposed to be a liquid lipstick. This shade in PK012 is not opaque enough to be a lipstick though. Eventhough the formula is a little thicker, it doesn’t feel sticky on the lips, it has more of a sleek, slippery feel. The finish of this is also super glossy! If you don’t like glossy lips, you can blot your lips on a piece of tissue (the shimmer will still stay on your lips).
This formula is long lasting but because it has micro gold shimmer, the shimmer will settle into the lines of the lips and so touch up is definitely necessary with this product. I think this is great for an event where you want to amp up your lip look without going overboard.

I’m so glad I picked this up, cause now I’ve upped my lip game, haha! This is definitely a great product to have in your collection. It’s a product you definitely won’t wear every day, but once in a while when you feel a little special and sparkly!
