Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher Review 

  
Hello Everyone. 
This week I was fortunate to get two of these lovely blushes on a sale, and I have been using them exclusively ever since. For blushes that only cost $6 a piece (and I paid only $4 for) I must say they are pretty darn fantastic. 
I got #3 Raspberry Tart and #7 Rose Sugar Macaron
 
Each blush comes with a puffer that is made of plush toy material. I don’t really care for them much since I use a blush brush. 

Here they are: 

#3 Raspberry Tart 

  

Here is what the site says about it:

“Soft and silver pearl hot pink color.” I must say although it is Konglish, it is spot on. 


#7 Rose Sugar Macaron

  

And here is what the site says about this one:

“Soft gold pearl elegant rose pink color.”

And here are the swatches:

  

That’s Rose Sugar Macaron and Raspberry Tart

Here’s a look I did with Raspberry Tart

   

You can probably tell the fatigue in my eyes. It comes from an 8 hour teaching schedule. 💀

Here’s the verdict:

I give these 5stars and I would’ve done the same had I paid $20 for them, because they are fantastic . There are 12 available altogether and I want all of them. The pigmentation is great and it lasted a good 4-5hours on me. That’s a decent blusher in my opinion. I will be reviewing more of them in the close future. 

Anyway people, I hope you have a lovely day and that it’s less tiring than mine.

Etude House Kerrie Hess Dreaming Swan First Impressions

  

Hello Everybody. 

This is probably going to be another one of those posts that come in in drips and drabs, since I’m having to scoure around to find the whole collection. I’ve been stalking Etude House on Instagram and they’ve had a sneak peak of this collection. From the first moment I saw the sneak peak, I knew I wanted all of it, but I couldn’t make out from the post when the release date was. It only said: “coming soon.”  So they ended up releasing the any cushion pacts first. I managed to get all of them. (Happy dance) m

Here they are: #1 Dreaming Swan

 

#2 Shine Toe Shoes

   

  

 

#3 Twinkling Tutu

  

I only bought the cases, since I’m still using my Cinderella compact. The nice thing though, is that I can remove the product and carry it in whichever case I prefer for the day. They are removable and refillable. 

 

The product is contained within an airtight container inside the pact. Inside the container is a sponge that keeps the liquid from spilling around. That’s why they call it Any Cushion. Also because the puffer they provide for you to apply the foundation is a soft little cushion. 

 

Once the cushion dries up, you can remove it and flip it over and you’ll find still a considerable amount of product left. Once it’s really run out,   you simply pop your finger in the back and the little container will come out and can be replaced for $10 with a free puffer. 

Next I got three of the five blushes, since only three have been available so far. I will not do swatches just yet, since I am recovering from food poisoning, and I thought it wise to wait until I have the whole collection. So I’ll post swatches on the round up in two weeks.  

Here they are #1 Jeté Pink

   

#2 Pointe Coral

   

#3 Arabesque Rosy

 

  

The last product that I managed to get in this haul is a lipstick. I only managed to afford one out of the 5, but I’ll have the rest in about 2 weeks. 

I got PP502 (of course because my favorite colour is  purple)

 

 As you can see, the packaging is similar to the Dear My Blooming Lips Talk permanent collection, but not exactly the same, which makes them limited edition. Also considering that these colours are all  limited edition. 

PS. I have been funding this blog completely out of my own pocket for the last 3 years, but I’ve recently applied to get sponsorship from Etude House. I’m waiting to hear back from them, so if you’d be so kind as to pray, hold thumbs, think of me or wish upon a star that it will become a reality for me, I would be very much obliged. 

Thanks guys and have a very beautiful week. It’s spring time here in Seoul and it is beyond beautiful!

Etude House Fantastic Color Eyes Cherry Blossom 

  

Dear Ladies and Jellyspoons. 

I just recently reviewed Rose Garden, which is the other palette that was released for spring of this year. Feel free to have a look at my blog to see that review. I will now be reviewing Fantastic Eyes Cherry Blossom. Etude House occasionally comes out with 2 palettes like these. Last year in Sept they came out with two Halloween palette which I wish with all my heart I know of, but I somehow missed it. I was however blessed to be able toe get both of the spring collection palettes of this year. 

 

This is Cherry Blossom: 

 

 Observe the packaging. Etude House never lets us down on the packaging. (Which is why I’m always broke. Not eve sad about it) 

 

The palette comes with 6 beautiful spring shades, a mirror (which I’m covering with the box) and a double ended shadow sponge. 

Here are the searches from left to right: 

 

 Cherry Coke is a satin chocolate brown with gold irredensance.  It’s quite pigmented and perfect for a brow fill or a crease colour. 

Cherry March is a matte hot pink. It’s quite sheer and needed double layering, but that’s the case for most mattes and it is not the shade you want to be highly pigmented on your eyes, since it can make one look sickly if used wrong. I’m pretty sure I’ll be using it as a blush as well

Baby Peony is the perfect discription of this colour. It’s a light baby/ peony pink in matte. It is also quite sheer and I’d also want to try using it for both the eyed and the cheeks. 

Hello Spring is the most gorgeous lustre of pink and silver and pearly glitter. It’s definitely something to layer on top of another colour to bring on some sparkle. It’s definitely the most unique and my favouritr shade in this palette. 

Flower Walk is a metallic chocolate brown with rose gold undertones. It’s another favourite of mine. It will make a perfect crease colour for blue eyes and it has very good colour pay off and pigmentation. 

Warm Morning is a metalic caramel brown/ rose gold. Beautiful colour pay off and pigmentation as well. 

This palette definitely get 5 stars from me. I’m strongly considering buying a back up. The price point is only $13 so one can’t go wrong. 

There you have it, Lovelies. I’ll post pictures of looks very soon. I’m just recovering from an Easter get away and my face isn’t picture ready. ☺️

Have a lovely week!

Etude House Fantastic Color Eyes Rose Garden

 

   

Hi Ladies and Jellyspoons

I have a load of new Etude House reviews coming up in the coming week, so please keep your eyes peeled. 

I’m starting off with the first of two eyeshadow palettes that came out this year. 

Here is Rose Garden: 

  

It’s a palette containing six beautiful spring coloured eyeshadows, most red and gold toned. This palette is perfect for blue eyes. 

  Swatches from left to right:

 

 Juliette is light champagne pink with a fine pearlescent shine. It’s perfect for a brow bone highlight. 


Honey Bouquet is a glittery metallic gold. This one is similar to the lustre eyeshadows from Mac, which means it’s quite glittery and may cause a bit of fallout. The pigmentation is cry strong, but I see it as a glittery top colour. 

Antique Touch is a lovely antiqued gold. It’s very pigmented. I’d say it’s similar to Woodwinked from Mac. 

Handtied is a vivid red satin. It reminds of Daydreaming by Mac in the Halley Williams collection.  It’s lovely in the crease for blue or green eyes and could also be used as a blush. 

Vintage Rose is an extremely sheer rose gold. The pigmentation on this one is a tad disappointing as it looks much brighter in the palette. Lovely none the less. 

My Girl is a rusty orange red satin with Amos a great colour pay off and pigmentation. It reminds me of Coppering by Mac 

I’d give this palette at least 4 stars, but because the price point is so low and the quality is so high, I’m giving it 5 stars. $13 for a 6 colour palette with a mirror is something to admire. So I’ve got to give it to Etude House. They always win with quality and awesome packaging. 😍

Like I said, there are many reviews to come this week. Have a lovely week!

Etude House Princess Happy Ending #3 Snow White

  

Dear Ladies and Gentlebeasts 

Etude House came out with an extensive collection featuring Belle, Cinderella, Snow White and Jasmine.

If you’ve been reading my blogs recently, you’ll know that This is the third post on the Etude House Princess Happy Ending collection. I’ve decided to blog about one princess at a time. 

Today we will be looking at some of the items from the Snow White section of the collection. I wasn’t able to pick up the red lipstick as that was the #1 selling item for this collection and it was sold out in a very short time. 

Here are the items that I got:

Snow White Nail Kit:

  

  

As you can see the base colour is not the typical pin up red, but leans more orange/bright red. The glitter in the top coat is also predominantly orange with gold pink and white glittery pieces as well.  

This kit’s box is shaped like a box. Many of this collections packaging looks like books which was a giant plus for me. It came with a sheet of nail art tattoos with apples, pictures frames and tiaras galore. I have yet to succeed in applying them without them getting destroyed, but I’ll keep trying. 

 

Next up is one of Etude House’s best selling items and it’s their Bb cream. I have used and am currently using various different types of this Bb cream, but this particular one comes in a book shaped box and special Snow White packaging. 

   

 

There are 2 different colours. I ended up getting No2 although W13 also work perfectly fine on my skintone. They are SPF 30 and PA++. They also have whitening and anti darkening properties as all korean bbcreams. I like this one because it is not as thick and oily in consistency as Missha and Skin79 Bb creams. I have raved about this Bb cream in the past and I will again. You can’t go wrong with these!

 

As you can  see, the dark freckle on my hand is fairly covered up. I will post a before and after picture of my face as soon as possible. 

There you have it, Folks. I’ll be adding more blogs to my site daily since I finally have the time to do so. 

Have a lovely day!

Etude House Princess Happy Ending #2 Cinderella.

  

Ladies and Jellyspoons. 

I’m finally finding the time to write this review. Etude House came out with this adorable Princess themed make up collection a while ago. I was unfortunately not able to get my hands on the entire collection, but I got something for every princess represented. 

The Cinderella theme has a nail polish set as well as 3 cream fairy glitter eyeshadows. I could unfortunately only get my hands on the eyeshadows.

Here they are: 

Pink Glass Heels

  

Pink Glass Heels is a vivid deep pink. The texture is very glittery although this is a cream eyeshadow. I’ve heard complaints that the product dries up over time. I’ve had mine for quite some time and I haven’t experienced any drying. I do however check that the containers are tightly closed. 

#2 Magic Pumpkin

  

Magic Pumpkin is a golden pumpkin  brown infused with tons of fairy glitter. Again it’s a cream shadow that has not dried on me. It’s extremely pigmented. If you’re someone who doesn’t like glitter or shine, these aren’t for you. 

#3 Evening Party

  

Evening Party is a glittery chocolate brown. Perfect for a liner or brow bone colour and even perfect for all over the lid. 

Verdict: I honestly wish that Etude House would make their limited editions available for longer. They are so, so good and I would totally keep buying these if they were permanent shades. 

They get 5 stars from me. 

I will make a look with these soon. I’m currently on my lunch break at work and slowly trying to catch up on my reviews.

Have a lovely week!
