Etude House Play Color Eyes Peach Farm Palette Review

peach farm

Hi Ladies and Jellyspoons

I have recently acquired quite a collection of new goodies from Etude House that I need to review for all of you. When you’re in your home country and you keep seeing launches of new product lines and you decide to save up to get it once you arrive. That’s exactly what I did.

Today I will be sharing my thoughts on a beautiful new eyeshadow palette called Peach Farm, from Etude House. I already own their Wine Party palette, as it was a Christmas gift from my husband, and I adore it. It’s been my go to palette throughout my entire time in South Africa. I’ve also been eyeing the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette for a while now, and wondered how it might compare. Unfortunately I don’t have my hands on one of them as of yet, but I’ll be sure to do a swatch comparison in the future.

This is what the packaging looks like:

I absolutely adore the colours and the way they created a gradient between them. It’s so classy and sleek. And unlike the tin palettes by brands like Urban Decay and Too Faced, this one is made of plastic that is less likely to get scratches and dings in it.

Here is the palette:

Etude House has a famous eye shadow line called Look At My Eyes and they bring out small 6 shadow palettes and large 10 shadow palettes every season.  Peach Farm is a large one.

1.) Solsol Dried Pine Cone is a beautiful matte caramel brown. It’s perfect for the crease of brow bone highlight if you have a tanned skin tone. I personally don’t play enough with matte shaddows so I’ll have to play with it more, but so far it’s worked well in the crease for me, and I know it will work well as a blonde brow powder as well.

2.) White Is It? is a pearly iridescent off white, from whence the name. It’s perfect for placing over another colour to lighten it up. In Korea they refer to light colours like this as ‘lace’. I really like that term. It’s like wearing a lacy blouse over colour camisole. It’s also great for the inner eyes, especially on blue eyes, as it will accentuate the cooler tones in your eyes and make them look a brighter blue.

Swatched: (Solsol Dried Pine Cone, White is it?)

3.) Free Dating is a copper with peachy duochrome. I feel like I’m saying this a lot but these colours really work well with blue or green eyes. In saying that it will always work well with any other eye colour.

4.) Sunshine Peach is a rosy pink with golden iridescence. This is great for hazel eyes as it will bring out the gold flecks. The colour pay off for this one isn’t exactly what I would’ve like, but considering the price of the palette and the excess of other amazing colours, I can’t be to gripey about it.

Swatched: (Free Dating, Sunshine Peach)

5.) Pamplemousse Tea is a matte peach orange. It’s a tad blotchy but can be layered and works well in the crease. I will even work well as a summery blusher too.

6.) Smashed Peach Juice (actually translated as Grinded Peach Juice so I had to improvise my own name, since grinded reminds of the fact that I have to get my tooth filling replaced because I grinded my teeth and the filling came out.) It’s a shimmery, peachy nude, but it doesn’t quiet apply like the colour in the pan. I’d use this one to blend over a darker matte shade to make it more shimmery.

Swatched: (Pamplemousse Tea, Smashed Peach Juice) 

7.) Ah Peach is a gorgeous duochrome peachy pink, with fine gold shimmer. It reminds me of Expensive Pink by MAC. I’d love to do side by side comparisons but I actually completely finished the one I had because it was an absolute cult favourite. I am sure that I’ll be hitting pan on Ah Peach sometime in the near future as well. It’s one of those shades you can wear on it’s own without anything else in the crease or inner corner. I think it’s my favourite or second favourite of the whole palette.

8.) Ripe Nectarine probably is my favourite colour in this palette, not because of its colour as such but because it is extremely hard to find a red eyeshadow in a palette like this and usually when palettes do have them, they are chalky and blotchy or not as true to colour as I would’ve wanted. This one is true to colour and although it is a matte, it doesn’t wear blotchy or chalky. I am really happy that they put this colour in the palette, and if you’re out and you realise you didn’t pack a blush, you’re sorted.

Swatched: (Ah Peach, Ripe Nectarine)

9.) Dazzling Peach Farm reminds me of Amber Lights by MAC. I’ll find it and swatch it for you as soon as possible. It’s a coppery gold with yellow undertones. It has the most amazing colour pay. To me it just looks like liquid gold on the eyelids and it’s a universally flattering colour.

10.) Peach Tree is a chocolate brown with fine gold dust. It has a duochrome of gold and brown. The colour pay off is also extremely satisfying and it works well with in the crease, paired with any of the other brighter colours in this palette.

Swatched: (Dazzling Peach Farm, Peach Tree)

That’s it from me, Ladies and Gentlebeasts. I will be back soon with more Etude House reviews for you very soon. Until then, take care.
