Hi Ladies and Jellyspoons.
Etude House has an extensive amount of products that have been around for a while because they are just so fantastic. Their Lovely Cookie blushes have been a cult favourite for a few years now and they remain one of their top selling lines. These blushes come in domed cases that make them look like macarons, from whence the name Lovely Cookie. They are the same pan size as MAC blushes, if anyone feels the need to depot them and place them in a palette. I am too in love with the packaging to ever justify doing that though.
I know I have done a review on these before, but my collection has grown quite significantly, and I thought it would be a great idea to share my thoughts on my collection so far. You know me, I want them and I will eventually have them all, but for now I have 5 of the 12. Here they are:
They are named and numbered by the store so I will present them to you in numerical order:
#3 Raspberry Tarte:
Raspberry Tarte is the first one I bought, along with Rose Sugar Macaron. It’s very bright and as you can tell, it’s not one I’ve used a lot yet because of it’s brightness. I must say though that there are ways to wear bright or even dark blushes. Professional makeup artist and Youtube Guru Wayne Goss suggests applying the blush before applying foundation. It allows the foundation to tone down the brightness of the blush, and you can apply less product that you would for example a much lighter colour that you’d have to layer on.
and here is the swatch:
As you can see, Raspberry Tarte has the tiniest amount of silver sparkle.
#6 Grapefruit Jelly
Grapefruit Jelly is a cult favourite. In all the reviews I’ve read and watched, people have raved about it. It is one of my latest purchases which is why it’s not very indented yet, but I really adore it.
And here is the swatch:
Grapefruit Jelly is a chalky peach/ coral with the almost unnoticeable amount of silver sparkle.
#7 Rose Sugar Macaron
You can probably tell that Rose Sugar Macaron has gotten a TON of love from me. I’ve almost hit pan on it. It’s definitely one that I grab on an almost day to day throughout the year. I adore all of them, but this ones takes the cake. I’ve actually given two of them away to friends because I love it so much!
And here’s the swatch:
Rose Sugar Macaron is peachy gold duo chrome blush. It not only provides you with rosy cheeks, but a bit of shine as well. I know many people don’t like blushes with shine to them, but this one is really something else.
#9 Sweetberry Muffin
Sweetberry Muffin is another one that has been used to death. It’s just a lovely pastel pink. It hardly has any sheen to it. The reason why I wear it so often is that it’s just a neutral blush that gives you just enough natural colour to make you look healthy.
And here’s the swatch:
Sweetberry Muffin has almost no sheen to it, and it comes off more pink than it looks in the pan.
#11 Peach Choux Wafers:
Peach Choux Wafers is beautiful coral. This one might be to dark for my porcelain skin tone, but it works when I dust it lightly.
And the swatch:
Peach Choux Wafers looks more pastel on ones skin than it does in the pan. It’s similar to Sweetberry Muffin in that is has little to no sheen.
These only go for $6 each and there is currently 12 in the collection. The quality is comparable to NARS and MAC blushes. I really want all of them, but the only thing I can complain about is that some of them are REALLY hard to track down. It’s as if every Etude House thinks it’s only necessary to keep the best sellers. That being said, I will not rest until I have all of them 🙂
Which one would you like to see reviewed?
