Etude House Vivid Pop Stick collection

Etude House released Vivid Pop sticks sometime ago and I got my hands on it when I went crazy on New Year’s day! (Check out the haul).

There are 8 shades in this line and I chose #3 Just Dance because it swatched very nicely and looked like it would show up on my pigmented lips compared to the pinks. I also have a lot of lip products so I tried to go with a color that looked somewhat different.

The packaging is pretty simple for an Etude House product but then what can one do with a chubby stick? hehe. I really like the fonts they use on their packaging even though this fact has nothing to do with the review!

I like that this is retractable and there is a lot of product packed in this medium-sized stick.

The swatch is quite true to its color in the packaging even though it shows up a little less intense on the lips. The shade selection is nice and I may try a couple of other darker shades too!

How To Use:

  1. Scrub lips to reveal a clear base
  2. Apply using the stick directly like lipliner. (And/or) place it in the centre of the lips and spread by dabbing with a finger (for a sheer color)

Vivid Pop Stick #3 Just Dance is a vibrant burnt orange shade that looks a bit more peachy on my lips than orange. It shows up more orange if I conceal the color of my lips with a powder or concealer.

My lips get dry a lot even in summer and they are a bit dry despite my best efforts in this Korean winter so I noticed that this VIVID POP STICK emphasizes on the dry spots. If I scrub then there is no problem at all and it does not dry out the lips but if I apply it without scrubbing, I can see some color deposit around the flaky skin.


  • Convenient and easy to use.
  • Beautiful shades
  • Good pigmentation
  • Not drying on the lips
  • Can be worn sheer
  • Does not bleed or feather out the lips
  • Can be used with other lip products
  • Pleasant scent


  • Not very buildable
  • Highlights chapped lips

Rating: 4/5

Recommend: Yes

Repurchase: Yes

I will try out a couple of the darker shades from this line. I cannot use these sticks everyday since I do not scrub my lips everyday but the color selection, pigmentation and feel of these makes me overlook this small flaw. I am overall satisfied with this product!
