Exciting news everyone! I’m one of the new Pink Bird bloggers for Etude House. Which means for the next 6 months I’ll be bringing you unboxings of the latest Etude House Products. Excited? I may just be a tad, and so this blog post is super photo heavy as I explored January’s Pink Bird offering.
The box itself arrives in this pretty package with a folder that has mini posters of each of the products inside in.
First out of the box are the “extras”, included this time was a 100% cotton face towel and a hand mirror embossed with gold stars and the phrase “Life is Sweet”. Life is sweet indeed little hand mirror. It’s also good quality with faux leather and is about the size of my palm.
Okay now onto the main attractions!
Any Cushion Color Corrector
This is a colour correcting cushion, for use as a primer under bb creams/foundation. It comes in four colours.
- Pink – Corrects dark spots and under-eye circles
- Mint – Anti-redness
- Lavender – Even out yellow-toned skin
- Illuminate – Strobing effect
I went for the mint colour as I do suffer from redness. It’s a pretty firm cushion and there’s plenty of product within. I only required two puffs to cover my entire face. It did give a good coverage, but I was slightly pale green which was an eerie effect, so I couldn’t recommend just using this product alone! Though I do suffer from a lot of redness so I may have been overgenerous with the application.
Precious Mineral BB Cream
This is a new BB cream from Etude House for 2017. The BB in this case stands for “Beautifying” and “Block”. Promising to cover flaws and protect the face from sun and dust. It is SPF50, PA+++ but I am always of the belief that BB cream alone isn’t enough for proper sun protection, so do still use suncream with this.
This comes in 5 different shades, from lightest to darkest:
As with all Korean cosmetics though, even Sand is quite a light shade. I wear Bobby Brown Porcelain and chose Petal. On testing this out it looks to be one shade darker than my neck, which works out fine for me. As I like a bit of extra colour on my face, but for those who like an exact match vanilla is probably better. This had decent coverage, it did slightly gather in the folds by my nose though. And it wasn’t transfer proof. When I touch my face some of the BB cream did come off at the same time. It’s a decent cream for the price though.
Look at My Eyes – Sparkling Milky Way
Etude House has come out this year with a set of Eye Shadows inspired by the Western Zodiac! As someone who loves themed make up/skincare/anything really, I was really happy to see two of the shades in my box. There are 7 shadows in the regular Look At My Eyes texture, and 5 in the Jewel texture. I received Femme Fatale Scorpio, matching my birth sign, and Solid Taurus. Below are all the possible shades:
An extra feature of these eyeshadows is that the case glows in the dark! These had a better than expected pigment, but not the same class as Urban Decay, and were slightly shimmery. I wouldn’t expect these to last 6+ hours on their own.There was some fall out when I applied the shadows, but was also simple to wipe off as well. For a more defined look you’ll definitely have to apply primer. Below are swatches of the two shades that I received.
Seeing as how I received 4 make-up products I took the opportunity to try a complete Etude House look! I used the Scorpio shade as a substitute eyeliner, and the Taurus as my base eyeshadow.
I loved my first box! What did you think? Will you be buying any of these products!?
You can find all these products at most online AB retailers. Or even directly from the Etude House Official Website
