Etude House Woo Baby Lip Plumper Review and Swatch

May 29, 2014

Hellooooo~ Finally I fixed what's wrong with the images of product reviews.. I always want my product review pictures to be clear and have nice and clean white background that blends with the layout of this blog.. Finally I could make it happen a little closer to what I want! Still learning to make the pictures clear, sharp, and informative to you, but I can't wait to review more products!

I have 1 month left till my assembly and it's kinda tight in schedule, hence I haven't updated for a few days. I haven't used many beauty products recently because I don't go out that much so it takes me longer time to review one product ^^;
After all, I don't just wanna do copy paste and review products that I don't use..

Well anyway, this time is Etude House Woo Baby Lip Plumper !

Etude House Woo~ Baby Lip Plumper is a lip product to makes your lip plumper, emphasizing big and glossy lips. It has been around for years but recently they changed the packaging to make it cuter. Comes with 2 lip plumbers for your needs, one is 01 Sheer Volume and another is 02 Shimmering Pink Volume. The difference between these two will be revealed shortly

For more informations about the product itself, Etude House kindly writes it on the box in english, something that other Korean Beauty Brands should learn from! 
The information for both products are same. They promise non-sticky finish and comes in menthol formula

And here it is, the Etude House Woo~ Baby Lip Plumper
The product is very tiny and rounded shape, giving cute appearance

The lip plumper comes with transparent plastic bottle packaging so it's easier to check how many products are left in inside. The blue and pink colour is not from the bottle, but from the liquid itself. Magic thing is, the colour doesn't affect the result. I thought that the blue colour would make my lipstick more blueish and the pink colour would make it into pinkish, but turns out it's not

It comes with plastic thick spatula that is often used for lip plumping products and unfortunately I don't like using this kind of spatula because it's so difficult to spread the product evenly on my lips

Here's the swatch for Etude House Woo Baby Lip Plumper
Left is no 01 Sheer Volume, and Right is no 02 Shimmering Pink Volume

Notice how the colour is transparent and the only thing that differs them is the sparkle and glitter that Shimmering Pink Volume has?
Besides that, there's no other difference I could spot on.. The product texture is somehow sticky to my preference, so no, Etude House doesn't keep their promise on this. It's thick, and kinda builds layer on top of my lips instead of blend together with the lipstick underneath

However you can tell from the lip swatch that I have above, that the products do great job. It makes my matte lipstick more juicy and glossy, and also looks healthier!
However, since I feel it's quite thick, I feel a little bit uncomfortable when using them because the stickiness is unridable.

The product doesn't last long either on me, maybe around 2-3 hours..
Also, I recommend not using spatula directly to your lipstick, because the spatula apparently transfers product well and it can take some of your lipsticks inside the lip plumper bottle. I prefer using lip brush for this product!

Anyway, I really love the cooling menthol sensation that it gives to my lips, and somehow it makes me having a thought that my lips is getting bigger. So I guess it's just illusion and brain-wash lol Because when you see it, it doesn't really make my lips that plump

It's glossy yes, but a mere clear lip gloss can do it as well! Also I can't seem to spot any big gap between the non shimmer and shimmer lip plumper, it looks just the same when applied to my lips. Yes the red lips looks more shiny on the centre, but the difference among them is not that obvious I think

 Cute little bottle
 Has cooling menthol sensation
 Gives healthy juicy and glossy result on lips

 Spatula is not easy to help spreading on the product
 Very sticky
 Feels thick on the lips
 Doesn't last long on the lips
 The products result is not different between each of them
 Doesn't really give plumper lips effect

Not really impressed with this one, I feel this is just another clear lip gloss with menthol effect on the lips. I used to have lip plumper from Japan that really makes my lips look bigger than it is so yeah, no kudos for this product.. 
Especially because of the stickiness ouchhh... I prefer using lipgloss next time
Hope this review is helpful!

  2. etude house always did a great job on the packaging :')
    I'm not a fan of that sticky lippy :c but the shimmer one looks good on your lip! :D

    cheer, michelle

  3. It is really helpfull that I learned we should use lip brush :))

  4. Awww ur lips are amazing ** thank you for review!!

  5. Just by looking at the lip swatch when you used them on your lips, I can barely tell which one is the pink glittery one and which one is the clear blue one @__@ And yeah, it really does look thick and sticky. Such a hassle when you drink! >.<

  6. Oh many thanks for your review, I don´t like the sticky products! So maybe the product is not to xx

  7. Ga terlalu beda ih satu sama lainnya o.o
    nice review stel ^^

  8. Does it taste something sweet or too perfumed? I think Etude's packaging is getting better and better hahaha~ thank you for the review :D

  9. I sorta like product pictures with an interesting background! But all white does look more professional. I generally feel that clear glosses are a waste of money, I'd rather a colored gloss that does all in 1 step ^^. Thanks for reviewing!

  10. hello dear! thanks for the thorough review! can you recommend any lip plumping products that you absolutely love?

  11. wow, that's a shame that it didn't do much, but I hope some product will come out because my lips can look really thin when I wear bright lip stick!

  12. I've been looking for a clear lip gloss, so maybe this is the one! I've never really needed any lip plumping though (I've had naturally full lips), and the glittery-pink one looks really cute! :)

  13. Love 02, the packagings are super kawaii~

  14. I already eyeing the clear one for a long time, but sadly it has no plumping effect, i will reconsider again....
