Drew this when I still thought I could put several lipsticks of one shade into lớn one single post...So naive.
I really wanted khổng lồ bởi some quiông xã Reviews & swatches of ALL my Korean lipsticks in one big blog post. Then, looking at all the stuff I"ve sầu hoarded, I decided to split it up into lớn color groups - the leader in numbers being the coral-orange camp.Looking at all the images I had for just ONE of the lipsticks, I gave up on that idea & will be doing these one by one like a sane person. :"D
*

So my favorite shade goes first! It"s part of the No Wear S line & the color is called "Jealousy".

"Jealousy" is the orange shade on the very right.Image source & collection overview on Espoir"s official site.
Espoir has some of the widest color selections I"ve seen on the Korean market và I"d had my eyes on lượt thích ten of them for a while. When the limited collection called "Pastel Punch" came around in Spring 2015, I finally caved and got my first "middle range"-y priced lipstiông xã. At 19,000 it clocked in at more than double the price than any other lipstiông chồng I"ve sầu bought in Korea. So, of course, I had high expectations for this!

Espoir "Pastel Punch" Collection Packaging
The packaging is sleek và adorable. The matte plastic feels high quality, is light enough khổng lồ carry around & robust enough to not be endangered by the mess that is the interior of my bag.Superficial as I am, the color was what caught my eye first, though! It"s the most gorgeous shade of pastel lavender, reminding me of macarons for some reason.The shade"s name is printed on the bottom.

A really nice touch is the mint colored ring only visible when the lipstichồng cap is removed. (prettyyy.....)The cap itself is magnetic and it feels so luxurious to open it and snap it bachồng on! Love the packaging overall, as you can see.

Everything is just so pretty!!
The shade is a coral, I THINK. Seriously, I"m so unsure about what to lớn call it. It"s coral leaning khổng lồ orange one moment, và when I move sầu inlớn slightly different light, it"s more pink.I mean, look at this:
*
Pink?

*
... orange??
I literally moved my hand ten centimeters and angled it a tad differently & it went from a warm pink (?) lớn a pastelly orange (???) và I don"t understand colors at all.Maybe I should just describe it as a bright pastel coral and leave it at that.

There"s some embossing going on~
The lipstiông xã line of Espoir that goes under the "No Wear" tag is said to lớn be a "Retouch Free", "Weight Free" và "Smudge Free" formulation. The "S" stands for Semi-Matte và it"s a creamy, moisturizing formula with a slight sheen that dries to more of a matte after some time. All three shades of their Pastel Punch Collection fall under that category, & even if this specific shade is now maybe hard to lớn find, the same citeria apply khổng lồ the rest of the No Wear S group.Let"s take it apart by that.Smudge Free: It actually doesn"t transfer, except for when it moves inlớn the liplines, then it will transfer a bit when drinking, for example.I went lớn the beach and swimming & even diving with this on, and it was still left as a nice corally hue after all that. It doesn"t stain, though, just fades very slowly (and not always prettily).Weight Free: It does feel nice, velvety & light on the lips. Despite drying into lớn a nearly matte finish, it feels creamy when applied. I lượt thích the feel of it, if it weren"t for the sticking-to-dry-patches factor, which brings me to:Retouch Free: Ahaha, nope. This is high maintenance. It sticks to lớn everything that"s not perfect and sinks into lớn lines. Being smudge-proof makes it hard lớn retouch, too, as it"s difficult lớn dab away the previously applied layer before re-applying.When I want to lớn wear this, I need khổng lồ bởi lip scrubbing, lip balming và re-apply at least once during the course of the day.
*

It works if I wear it on a vacation or a lazy day in the city when I have sầu time to retouch, but not so much when running errands or working.Maybe because of that, this color makes me feel like I"m on a vacation even when I"m not - it"s my go-to shade for when I feel lượt thích I want to spover some time on myself, haha. Also, it forces me to do lip scrubs, which could be seen as a plus, I guess.

I wrote at the very beginning of this post that it"s my favorite shade of lipstiông xã. Not my favorite lipstichồng, or favorite formulation - but the color saves it all for me.I"m pale and sometimes my beloved orange shades make me look kind of sickly. Pink shades, on the other hvà, rarely suit my mood - they tkết thúc to make me look even paler and younger. (strange problems I have sầu...)This is the perfect in between. It"s cool-toned enough to fit my skintone, but there"s the orange hue lớn it that I love sầu. It"s eye-catching if applied on the full lips because it"s a quite bright and quality shade, but it can be toned-down (just dabbing it on in one layer) lớn suit heavier eye-makeup. I rarely bởi much with my eyes, so I depend on lip colors to lớn vì the heavy lifting.

From far away, the dry patches aren"t even visible. Victory!!
All in all, this is such a mixed bag, but I love sầu it anyway!I love the color, the pigmentation, the semi-matte finish, the gorgeous packaging, the slightly sweet scent, the long-lasting qualities & that it doesn"t transfer. I"ve found ways lớn work around the the downsides of this lipstiông chồng - mainly lớn moisturize and accept that no-one but myself actually will look at my lips that closely to lớn even notice the dry patches.Maybe those would be more visible with a darker shade, though, so I"m kinda hesitant about trying another shade from the same line.Espoir"s No Wear lipsticks also come in a confusing amount of different versions, lượt thích their basic, first "No-Wear" line, then the "No Wear Glam" & "No Wear Touch" (which are shiny và more like a balm respectively), "No Wear G" for glam/glossy, "M" for matte, & newly their "Lustre" line which looks very moisturizing. As mentioned before, Espoir"s color selection is HUGE, ranging from the typical pinks & reds khổng lồ nudes, oranges, purple and everything in between.Will have sầu to bởi some in-store swatching!So, if you"re looking for some special shade that requires a bit of work but is worth the effort, have a look around!
