Etude House Beauty Shot Face Blur SPF 15/PA+

New interesting stuff from Etude House! Beauty Shot Face Blur. You guessed it… it is a primer to ‘blur’ imperfections! Hooray to #Selfie!
The lightweight cream claims to:
- Covers pores and bumpy skin to make skin look flawless.
- Softening skin layer like filtert effect to give smooth and even skin layer.
- Natural whitening skin to make dark skin look bright and cover imperfections flawlessly while remaining invisible on-screen and in real life.
- Baby pixcel powder and cover powder compounds give 3-in-1 multi filter effect like adjusting light on skin.

That’s lots of claims…
The cream also features baby pixel powder, cover powder and airy skin powder. I suppose all this tech stuff is meant to help with all the claims Etude made on this product. 

I am loving the design of Etude bottle as usual. The pump dispenses perfect amount of cream on my palm.

Now, the cream itself. As you can see it is light in color with slight peachy tint. and… little goes long way… as you can see here on my hand swatch… I used approximately same amount of product with the drop on the left most side… it has to be blended ever so lightly, or else, it looks ashy even on my rather light skin. As for the blurring claim… honestly, after blending to make sure my skin don’t look ashy (the right most part, divided with grey crooked line), I don’t see the cream hiding my pores or concealing my skin imperfection and bluish-vein marks on back of my hand. 

Trying it on my face, after my regular oil moisturizer, it does feel lightweight and I don’t feel like im adding extra layer on my face. But… all the blurring and smoothing effect is not very visible at all. Plus, the ashy, white cast issue… makes me think that it work be suitable for beauties with deeper skin color… but I think, it will give whitening effect on the suitable light skin colored beauties. 

Lightweight, yes. Blurring, smoothing etc…not so much.  

Etude House Sweet Cherry Tint PK001

Etude House of Korea is expanding its Cherry Tint lip stain collection! I am excited! In the new format, the popular lip tint is launched in lipstick format. Housed in click pen –like slim tube, Etude offers 5 colors.

I picked up PK001 for starter. PK 001 is pigment packed, yet sheer cool red-pink. It is super easy to apply, and it has nice slip on the lips. 

Single swipe deposits enough pigment to add cheerful color on my lightly pigmented lips. It is rather glossy, but the glossiness wears away as I drink and snack. Lots of pigment got transferred to my cup rim, but by 4th hour, the stain stays still on my lips. After eating a full meal the tint became faded. Good news for me too… it doesn’t dry my lips at all!

I am liking the new click pen format, I find it easier to use and practical. Just be careful not to click too much, as the bullet cant be retracted back.

In Summary:
Lovely lip tint in super practical click pen format. Packs lots of pigment while being sheer and glossy. Glossiness wears away, but not the stain. I am loving it, and gonna purchase more colors!

Etude House Color in Liquid Liquid Lipcolor

Getting ready for spring requires stockpiling fresh, poppy colors dont you think? Etude House got the answer! Look at the color range of this liquid lipcolor! 

Etude House claims this liquid lipcolor gives 'A melted liquefied lipstick with the intense color and high shine to make provocative yet lovely sheer lips. The cushiony water-sliding texture makes lips look supple and hydrated.'

I am curious how an intense colored product will give lovely sheer lips...

The colors, on the other hand, are pretty.... Etude signature pastels, bold reds and even purples! I am drooling over PK 006 and PK 007! What about you?
