Etude House Orjel Light Lipstick - Take 2!!!

Etude House Orjel Light Lipstick - Take 2!!!
Price: 8000won
Color: 2
Ages ago, when I first moved to Korea I bought the Etude House Orjel light lipstick color 4, and I didn't like it! But a lot of readers commented how they had liked it, and I had read on other blogs how much they liked it....

I hated color 4, it was sooo drying, it made my lips flake, and ewww, that is Not attractive!!!
I was in the airport in Korea, on my way back from Thailand, and I bought a bunch of lipsticks from Etude House and Missha  (they were merged together into this weird round store....

By accident I picked up a second Orjel light. I was trying to get a soft pink from one of the other lines, but I got the soft orjel pink....

Luckily for me, it was the color I wanted, not soem really ugly unusable shade!

So I started using it.

I LOVE it.

I was wrong.  I still hate color 4 but color 2 is different. (I even pulled out the peach color, and tried it again, it dried my lips out again!)
It isn't drying. It doesn't last long, but It isn't at all drying, it is soft, and the color is gorgeous.
It's sparkly, but only a bit. It's sheer, with enough tint to alter the shade of my lips.
It looks gorgeous, natural but better!

it has become my go to everyday lipstick. It's so sheer, it is almost a gloss, with a soft satin finish.

SO If you are looking to buy from the Orjel Light line at Etude house, be warned, it seems to be quite inconsistent.....

Ah well.


  1. I love the color on you! It looks really pretty with that touch of sparkles.


  2. Yup yup this colour look good on you. :)

  3. :) Thanks! It is such a nice color, I think it would look good on anyone!

  4. Ahhh I love my Orgel Light to0! I have #10 and I love it. I generally have a good impression of Etude House lipsticks because of all the ones I've from EH have been nice. Interesting that color 2 is so different in quality....
