Etude House Dear My Wish Lips Talk RD302 Lipstick is one of the red shades in the line. It was actually RD301 that I wanted to buy that day, but since it was out of stock, I looked for a different shade instead. I ended up buying RD302 and BE101 which is a chic, Hollywood Beige.
I also have the shade PK002 and reviewed it here.
These Dear My Wish Lips Talk lipsticks have a soft and smooth texture. There are 10 amazing, vivid colors which leave the lips moisturized and glowing. Today I’m reviewing the dark red shade, RD302. It’s described as a Provocative Runway Burgundy.

Color, Texture and Finish
Etude House Dear My Wish Lips Talk RD302 Lipstick is a dark berry red with a cool undertone. It has a cushiony smooth texture and a shiny, glossy and lustrous finish. I didn’t like how it smelled at first, but I have gotten used to it over time.
It’s not as intrusive or off-putting a smell as with the Burberry Lip Cover lipsticks, but if you’re sensitive to fragrances, then you might want to test it out first. But once applied on the lips, the scent is barely noticeable.
It is apparent how shiny and glossy Etude House RD302 is, even in the lipstick bullet. RD302 appears to be a warm-toned burgundy, but in the arm swatch below, you’ll notice that it’s more cool than warm. It has a very rich, pigmented color and is already opaque even with just 1 swipe. You could get away with just 1 swipe of the lip color or blot it for more of a stained lip effect.
But if you want it bolder, deeper and darker, then it’s possible to build up the color more. With 3 swipes, it’s even more opaque and you get a more even, full-coverage color.
With the lightweight and creamy texture of Dear My Wish Lips Talk RD302 lipstick, it envelops lips comfortably. It glides on easily and applies smoothly like butter, and feels like it melts on the lips. It doesn’t settle into lip lines and doesn’t accentuate dry, chapped lips. However, for really badly chapped lips, you might want to exfoliate first.
Etude House RD302 is not drying on my lips and is even moisturizing. One of its main ingredients is Vegetable Squalene, which keeps lips moisturized. I can wear it even without a lip balm underneath it, but if your lips are prone to dryness then you might want to apply a lip balm beforehand.
For slightly pigmented lips like mine, RD302 is a very awesome lip color that will not need a lip concealer underneath because it is already very nicely pigmented and opaque. But if you’re prone to feathering, you will probably need to use a lip liner with this lipstick. On me, though, it doesn’t bleed nor feather. It also doesn’t slide and move around on my lips.
Moisture, Wear and Longevity
On my lips, it is a really dark, almost vampy red. I’m not trying to scare you with the photos above, but I do look scary with this lipstick, right? It would definitely be a great lip color for fall and winter. It has a rich color and lustrous, glossy finish. I don’t need to apply a separate lipgloss over it because it already has a very high shine which gives the effect of wet lips.
It still feels light on the lips, while being very rich in color, smooth and hydrating. Even though Etude House RD302 lipstick is super creamy, it lasts around 5 to 6 hours on my lips. It also leaves a beautiful stain. However, after eating and drinking, reapplication will be needed as most of the lip color is gone.

Wrapping It Up
The packaging is very cute, as with most Etude House products. I feel that it suits the younger generation more, but I don’t care. I would reapply this in public if I want to! 😀
I bought my Etude House Dear My Wish Lips Talk RD302 Lipstick for Php578 from Etude House in Robinsons Manila. It’s a little bit more expensive than most drugstore brand lipsticks, but I think that it’s really worth it. If you’re interested in getting this lipstick, you might want to check its availability because they’re pretty much sold out.
Are you bold enough to wear dark lipsticks? Do you think that the Etude House Dear My Wish Lips Talk RD302 lipstick is worth checking out?
