Etude House Lucky Dog Dear My Glass Tinting Review

Hello Everybody.

Happy year of the dog. I am back with another Etude House Lucky Puppy review and today I will be talking about one of their special edition lipstick. I have recently reviewed one of their eye shadow quads with for of their special edition eyeshadows. You can see it here.

Every season Etude House comes out with a beautiful collection of special products and special casing. At the beginning of every new year a lot of makeup brands here use the Chinese zodiac as a theme. Last year etude house had an extensive range of special edition eyeshadows with chickens and chicks to represent the year of the rooster, and this year they are representing the year of the dog with a gorgeous puppy themed line featuring corgis, maltese poodles and dachshunds. I really wanted to get all of the lipstick cases but they were all sold out so I only managed to the corgi one.

Here they are:

I really like all of them, but I like the corgi one the most so I am very happy that I snagged this one before it was sold out. I was also able to get this beautiful makeup pouch for free because I was stocking up on souvenirs for my family and spent over a certain amount.

I’m going to explain to you how the cases work. Just like with Paul and Joe makeup, Etude House came out with a line of several permanent cases and several permanent lipstick, but you buy them separately so you can mix and match them to your own quirky style.

Here some of their permanent line cases:

I personally own two of them SO FAR. (I want them all) Here they are:

Here are some of the colours you can choose from:ETUDE_GLASSTINTING_SWATCH4

I will be reviewing them separately since there are still so many that I would like to get. But just one tip: sometimes the special edition lines have special packaging but not special products. My watermelon case currently contains the same colour as my corgi case because I foolishly thought they’d bring out special edition colours which wasn’t ‘the case’. lol.

I got Choker Red #303 and this is what it looks like:

glasstinting

Choker Red is a beautiful tomato red in a creamy yet shiny finish. All the Dear My Glass Tinting lipsticks have the same consistency, and then they also have a whole matte line called Dear My Matt Tinting which I am yet to try.

Have you tried any of these lines and their cases? Which ones do you like? I feel like I need to get them all before leaving Korea permanently, and that’s not a good thing because I should be saving.

Have a lovely weekend.

Etude House Lucky Puppy Eye Shadow Review

Hello Everyone

Happy year of the Dog! Did you know that the chinese zodiac for this year is the dog? I was born in the year of the rabbit, but I love dogs so much! Etude House has recently come out with a beautiful line of puppy themed makeup called Lucky Puppy. I wasn’t able to get the whole collection, for as you can imagine, it flew off the shelves, but I was able to pick up one of their special edition lipstick cases, and an eye shadow quad with four individual eye shadows that can be depotted and put inside the quad.

Today I will be talking to you about the eye shadows, and showing you how to remove them from their individual packaging, and putting them inside the little palette.

Here are the individual shades:

This is the quad, and what they look like in the palette:

I’m going to also show you how to remove the individual pans for their packaging and place them into the palette.

IMG_0229

Just below the hinge of the packaging, at the back, there is a pinhole, concealed just below the edge of the sticker. If you rub your fingernail over the sticker you will see there is a small indentation there. Open the packaging, making sure to hold it close to a soft surface like a towel placed over your bed or your dresser. Then take a pin or needle and poke it through the pinhole and pry the pan out. There will be a dollop of glue holding the pan in the casing but the glue is soft and it doesn’t take much effort to pry it up. Then carefully remove the pan and press it into the palette, making sure you know where in the quad you want it before placing it inside. Unlike other palettes that use magnets, these rely on the glue for the pans to stay put.

This is what my full quad looks like:

I really love all of these colours, although they are all very different and I won’t wear them all at the same time on a regular basis. The great thing about Etude House is that they have larger palettes and SEVERAL other colours to choose from so you can mix and match them and swop them around in your palettes depending on you look of the day.

Which of the Lucky Puppy items were you able to snag, and which ones would you have liked to get? I will be talking about my Lucky Puppy lipstick and makeup pouches in my next post.

Happy Humpday!

Peri Pera Sugar Glow Tint Entire Line Review

image1-1

Hello Everyone

I’m finally back after the move and today I will be sharing one of my favourite brands with you. Peripera is known for their inwell themed makeup. You can find almost all of their products are packaged in inkwells, from mascara, to foundation, to their ever so famous lip tints. As a writer, the idea of having all of your makeup in inkwells really appeals to me.

Their most famous tint line, Peri’s Ink, comes in a variety to colours and finishes that all come in beautiful black ink wells. Sugar Glow Tint has a slightly different theme as their containers are larger, clear inkwells with a line of  5 new tints.

Here are what the swatches look like:

The are from left to right:

#1 Strawberry Sweet

IMG_0059

Strawberry Sweet is by far the most popular of the line and it was actually hard for me to track it down. I bought the collection at the time when they were having a sale and I had to visit 3 different stores to find it. It’s a buildable pinup red and of all the 5 in the collection I find this one to be the most universally flattering.

#2 Grapefruit Spirit 

IMG_0061

Grapefruit Spirit is a vivid orange, and it is perfect for spring and summer and can even be worn in fall because of its Jack O lantern colour.

#3 Pink Melon IMG_0060

Pink Melon is a toned down peach with both pink and orange undertones, perfect for spring.

 

 

#4 Sweet and Sour

IMG_0062

Sweet and Sour looks like a pastel orange in the container, but will wear differently on the lips because of its opacity. Your own lip colour will play a big part in what the end results will look like. I have rosy undertones so it wears more pink on my lips.

#5 Cherry Pie Filling

IMG_0063

Cherry Pie filling is the perfect barbie pink and can be toned down by wearing only a light touch, or toned up by wearing more layers. I like that it is the only cool tone in the line and stands bold just like it should as a bright pink.

That’s it from me for now. I will be on here with more Peripera love among other brands.
