ELLE Review: Sulwhasoo Essential Lip Serum Stick

Your puckers will be more kissable than ever

The hype

A lip balm that intensely moisturises lips and is packed with camellia oil and safflower complex to keep them supple and soft. Also promises to plump up the lips and give them a fuller pout with apricot kernel oil and elastic complex.


The pros

Lips feel super soft right after application, so this is definitely a good balm to keep your puckers nourished, hydrated and protected. If you want a naturally pink and healthy look without using an extra lip colour, go for the Blossom Serum shade.

The cons

Just a teeny bit too slick. If you’re using it as a lip balm before lipstick application, your lip colour might not last long - the balm creates a film over the lips so the colour doesn’t sit as well and tends to slide off a little. Instead, try applying a thick layer of the Lip Serum Stick to dry lips, then wait for 10 to 15 minutes before lightly blotting the excess off with a tissue. Then apply your favourite lip colour over. 

$50 each. Available exclusively at the Sulwhasoo boutique at #01-72 Capitol Building.
