Etude House Minnie Touch Blusher, Minnie Touch Highlighter, Kissing Minnie Lips Lipstick in #02 Bubble Pink
I am on make up diet… i have way too much make up in my drawers, I need to stop buying them. But… how can I say no to Minnie Mouse… Etude House, I blame you!
Of the complete Minnie Mouse x Etude House collection from2013, I decided to grab the highlighter, blusher, lipstick, few nail polishes and the loose glitter for nails.
For packaging, picture is worth 1000 words… there goes…
Look at that cute Minnie shaped design! The pan is made of matte plastic, but it feels quite sturdy.
The highlighter contains 3 colors: light lavender, warm beige and pale pink pastel. All with lovely iridescent glow when applied. I cant seem to capture the subtle color difference between all three on my hand swatch, but trust me, the difference is there. It feels soft and lovely when applied, you don’t have to dig with your brush to get colors. When applied, it doesn’t make my face look oily, just add nice glow on my morning skin.
In similar fashion with the highlighter, the blusher has 3 colors: pink, peach and light lavender. The texture is similar with the highlighter… soft, don’t dig too much with your brush. This one is matte and very sheer. I am not going to use this as blush; this is more suitable as all over face color when my skin feels particularly pale and colorless. Doesn’t appear chalky when applied.
Now, the lippie in #02 Bubble Pink. Polkadot tube with matte finish… love! The color… even better…. Lovely creamy MLBB pink that’s creamy and easy to apply. No tugging, just nice slip. It gives me medium coverage, lasts for about 3 hours on me. After that, I got a nice stain left behind. Just like the highlighter and blush, it has no fragrance.
I’m not going to review the nail polish here… one one note: don’t expect coverage from the glitter as it is meant to be used as top coat, giving your nail splash of polkadots and Mickey faces. It is kinda hard to get the mickey faces, so when I used it, I ‘fish’ them with toothpick…
Cute design aside, I am adoring the highlighter but don’t care about the blush, since the blush is so sheer. The lipstick is lovely, especially when I want to just perk up my lip color.
