GMarket Korean Lipstick Haul Review

I decided it'd be best to just put all the lip product reviews of the lipsticks/ plumper into one post. I'll try to keep this short.

For all the products i have a picture of the product on half my lips and my normal lips on the other half. It should be kind of obvious so I won't sit here pointing out which is which.

1. Clio Art Lipstick: M020.
- This is a nude shade that I saw modeled in one of the pictures. The texture is creamy and the color is the color of my concealer, lol. The only thing is that I realized I didn't want a true nude color. I wanted something with a more pinkish tone- this one has a more yellow tone =/. Ah well, live and learn. It has this beautiful art piece on the front though, love the idea of putting art on these. ~$17 with shipping. If it interests you, email me at I can sell for $13 shipped in the US.

2. Clio Lip Plumper: #01

- I thought this would be more like a lip liner because it just looks like that. Instead, it's a sheer color and has a little bit of tingling. It didn't really plump anything, but I love how it comes with a sharpener! I finally could sharpen my NYX Jumbo eye pencils. I had been contemplating so hard whether or not to buy a sharpener. ~$15 shipped from korea. Not sure if this is worth it =/

3. Etude House LUCIDarling Lipstick: #5

- I LOVE the formulation for these. They're extremely creamy and do cover my natural lip pigment well. There is a faint pleasant scent, but I can't put my finger on it. I think it might be a hint of the peach scent from their peach line. At first I was skeptical because a lipstick with lavender seems hard to wear, but it's surprisingly wearable. It's more pink than in the swatch picture posted by Etude House. ~$9 with shipping.

4. Etude House LUCIDarling Lipstick: #8

-This color was not one that I was planning to buy. I had planned for the #6 peach color, but I thought about it and figured that peach might not look too good on me even though I loved how it looked in the tube. I'm so glad I got this color. It's supposed to be orange. I wear it on days when I feel a little quirky.

5. Etude House LUCIDarling Lipstick: #9

- I have to say I'm most disappointed in this lippie. This was the only one I had originally planned to buy, but it's suprisingly plain and boring looking. I still keep it to wear occasionally, but if you like it and think you would use it more then email me at I'd be selling it for $7 shipped within the US.

You can see how pigmented they are from my wipe.

6. Peripera Wonder of Lips Lipstick: #8 (I know the image says #1, but it's 8, I messed up! >.<)

- This lipstick is super creamy. The pink is a lovely gentle pink. The color is more like the non flash picture.
I would love this lipstick except for the huge amount of glitter in the lipstick. I prefer my lips not to be so full of sparkle. It has a nice gentle scent. Quite pleasant, not like the American lipsticks. ~$12 shipped from Korea. If you think you'd be interested in it, I can sell it for $7 shipped in the US , email me at

'Til next time!!


  1. I stopped using asian brands lipstick a long, long time ago...>__< They're not as pigmented as western or local ones (well, I'm from Malaysia). Don't know whether there's any good brands out there but I tried Etude House lipstick (don't remember what range it's from) and all I got on my lips are glitter...and more glitter...That's a lesson learnt.

  2. These ones from etude lucidarling line are actually pretty opaque, and no glitter o.o. what they say is that the color on your lips are supposed to look like they do in the tube.
