As if we’re not obsessed enough with ETUDE HOUSE, the K-beauty brand just gave us more reason to love them even more – by enlisting trending K-pop darlings Red Velvet as their new ambassadors. Definitely not one to disappoint with their new launches, ETUDE HOUSE dropped the all-new Matte Chic Lip Lacquer in collaboration with the ladies of Red Velvet – a series of “lip lockers” that are touted to be extremely long-lasting and super pigmented with a matte finish.
There are a total of 12 shades in the entire range, featuring five signature shades inspired by each member of Red Velvet: Seulgi Burgundy, Wendy Brown, Irene Red, Joy Grapefruit and Yeri Pink. The collection is only available in Korea for now, but fans in Singapore will finally be able to get their hands on these babies in June! Ahead of its launch, the Teenage team got to try out the new RV-approved lippies during our trip to Korea for the Sweet Dream Tour – here’s our review.
True to its claims, all it takes is just a single swipe to achieve such insane colour payoff. It goes on matte and dries down in an instant, locking in the colour pigments within seconds of application and stayed put all day without budging. Like most liquid lipstick formulas, it has the tendency to feel a tad drying on the lips if you’re prone to chaps – but it’s nothing a little lip balm can’t fix so be sure to load up on the moisture before slapping on lippie.
You can either wear it as a full lip or go with a gradient look; we went with a gradient mix of Wendy Brown and Yeri Pink while we were in Korea and we loved the combo. However, our favourite shade has to be Joy Grapefruit which looked absolutely stunning on the Red Velvet member when she sported it on an episode of her recent K-drama Great Seducer (or Tempted). It’s an ultra-flattering poppy red tone that works on every skin tone and is perfect for the summer. Pro tip from Joy: it can also double as a blusher for that flirty, flushed look!
