Etude House Sweet Recipe Candy Stick in 'Lemon Candy' [Review]

Dear readers,

I do not really wear any lipsticks during the morning (since normally I am at university) but I do love wearing coloured balms.

A while back I got the Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar (review here) which I looveeeeee.

Then I saw the Etude House Sweet Receipt Candy Sticks and I fell in love with the packaging, because it looks like a Candy Cane stick ^.^

The Candy Sticks come in 3 different shades: Strawberry Candy, Orange Candy and Lemon Candy.

I got mine from this seller here (RubyRuby76 - I always buy Korean Makeup from them) and it cost me $5.98 including shipping.

I chose the Lemon Candy one and you get 2grms.

The balm itself looks yellow but it changes to a nice pink when applied. The more you apply the stronger the colour turns out. It also smells delicious - much like lemons in fact!

Unlike the Tony Moly one, this one is a balm tint - so it stains your lips while also giving them a mild glossy look.

It also helps soften my lips, and the glossiness/balminess stays on for about 1-2 hrs (I keep nibbling on my lips grrr >.< )

My only problem with this is that when I tried twisting up the lipbalm to see how much product I got, it got stuck! I had the same problem with the Tony Moly one too. I then had to push it with my lips while twisting it down - so I'm never going to twist more than I need.

one swipe looks really light and natural, but it gets darker the more you swipe it




  1. I have the orange and pink one of this and I love them! The pink is my favorite though.

    I think there's something wrong with the mechanism of the products in general because a lot of people have pointed out that theirs has or is broken. My pink one doesn't twist back down, even when brand new, and my orange one has recently had the same problem.

    1. Yes - I twisted mine up just as soon as I'd received it and it wouldn't go back down - but still, I would buy the pink and the orange too because I love the one I have :)

      P.s I had the same problem with the Tony Moly Glossy Bar and the Tony Moly Cat Chu Lipstick :/

  2. This is so cute xx


  3. Your lips look so glossy! Too bad about the twisting mechanism though :/

  4. I got the same prob too! They got stuck when twisting it down.anyway, that looks good on you :)


  5. the packaging is so cute!!is it just me or Etude House Sweet Recipe Collection actually taste tasty :O because whenever i put on my Sweet Recipe All Over Color i feel like licking or nibbling my lips too.Even my friends said the scent is so real! <3 #GIG
