Ettusais Lip Essences

I mentioned the Ettusais Lip Essence lip balm/gloss in my everyday makeup bag post, but I wanted to do a more in-depth review of these since these are one of my favorite lip balm/glosses. I own two, the light pink tube is the original and the red tube was a limited edition red tinted version.

今日のレビューはこの前の「化粧ポーチの中身」の記事で紹介した、エテュセ ・リップエッセンスaについてです♪二種類持ってて、薄いピンクのがオリジナルで、赤いのが限定品の赤リップエッセンスです。

These are really popular in Japan.  There's a cosmetic review website in Japan called "@cosme" and people rank different products and these lip balms have been classified as a "hall of fame" product.
@cosmeで殿堂入り商品って書いてたので、多分日本に住んでいる方はみんな知ってるくらい有名なリップ商品だと思います><


comes with 10g of product
Before I rave about how I love these,these lip products are a Japanese product so they might be hard to get in the U.S./expensive in the U.S. >_<

I bought mine in Japan last summer and I've been obsessed ever since.  These are my go-to lip products when my lips are dry.  I can't decide if I should call these a gloss or balm because they have a glossy finish, but they also moisturize your lips.
去年の夏、リップクリームを探していて、この商品を見つけてそれから愛用してます。グロスなのか、リップクリームなのか、ちょっと分からない感じの商品で、グロスみたいにツヤ感がでるけど、唇の乾燥も治してくれる商品です。

You can buy these online for $32.39  (amazon link) which is super expensive compared to the price in Japan which is 1,200 yen (about $12.00)
I hope that you can find these in Asian cosmetic shops? I don't live by any Asian stores that sell a lot of Asian brand cosmetics so I can't say :/
日本では1,200円だけど、アマゾンで買うとすると$32.39って書いてて・・・びっくり。

Pros(良い点):

  • Easy to apply - the applicator is pretty much the same as any tube lipgloss applicator. 塗るのがすっごく簡単。普通のチューブタイプグロスと同じパッケージ。

  • SUPER moisturizing - these really help with my dry lips, it's moisturizing when you put it on, but after you apply these, the gloss leaves your lips moisturized for a long time. 保湿力が半端じゃない!!!笑 唇がすごく乾燥する私でも付けてから潤い感が続く♪ツヤ感がなくなっても唇は潤ってる。
  • Doubles as lip gloss and balm - these have a really glossy finish you could use these as a gloss.  The red one does leave a red tint on your lips. グロスとしても使えるくらいツヤ感がでるし、赤いのはそのままつけて色もつくからリップ・カラーとしても使えるよ。
  • SPF 18 PA++ (I don't know what PA ++ means, but SPF is always good!) SPF18入り、PA++の意味は分からないけど、多分いいんだと思う。
  • No scent or taste 無香料
  • A little bit goes a long way -  I've had the original tube for a while now and even though I use it often, I think I still have about a quarter of the product left. ちょっと付けただけで大丈夫!そんなにいっぱい塗らなくてもいいから、すぐなくならない。
  • These aren't super sticky, the ettusais jelly glosses are sticky but unless you pile on the gloss these don't give you a really sticky feeling. 同じエテュセのjelly lipと比べるとべたつきが少ない。
Cons(悪い点):
  • I can't think of any :D 今のところないです♪

Swatches:
Left: clear透明, Right: red赤

When these two run out, I will definitely go and buy another tube - that's how much I love these!! Definitely recommend these to anyone who is looking for a good balm/gloss.  I wouldn't want to spend around $30 on these though (these are a Japanese "drugstore" brand lip product so paying $30 would be close to buying a high end lip product ><), so I would recommend to people that can buy them for cheaper.

この二本がなくなったら、必ずまた買うつもり!!そして、みんなにオススメします♪二本に住んでなくて、$30近く払わないとだめな人にはちょっと勧めにくいけど・・・もし安く手に入れることができるのなら、絶対試してみた方がいいです♪
