Haven't used that greeting in a while XD
So today I'm gonna review and swatch these babies for you guys =)
Let me just say I absolutely ADORE the Etude House Cookie Blushers! I only own two because some of the colors they I have I feel like I already have something similar. And the other colors I wasn't so interested because they contain glitters (yes, glitters, not shimmers).
I think the main reason why I like these so much is because of how soft they look... the two I own are matte and they I feel like they almost have a soft-focusing effect on my skin; they make my skin look really soft and pretty ^_^
Another reason why I like them is because of how easy they are to use. Basically super fail-safe blushes. Some examples of blushes that I DON'T think are fail-safe are MAC blushes and NARS blushes; these I feel like you have to go easy on your application otherwise you can easily apply too much. Of course that depends on the kind of look you prefer; I personally like my blushes to be as inconspicuous as possible (I don't like it when there's an obvious stripe of color... the so called very chiseled cheek look). I feel like when blushes are very noticeable, you automatically look like you have a lot of makeup on. Sometimes I like that look, but most of the time I just want to have a little color in my cheeks.
Did I mention the powder is very finely milled? :P
Anyway! Let's take a look at the blushes :)
I have to say, as cute as these look, they are SO BULKY. Definitely a big pain in the butt hole to travel with. But I actually de-potted these as soon as I photographed them XD so now I just have them sitting nicely in a palette. Two things I discovered while depotting them: 1. They are not at all hard to pop out... there's very little glue involved. 2. The pan itself is magnetic =D No need to glue on a piece of magnet. Cool beans.
#2 Strawberry Choux
Love love love this color. So soft... I always feel super girly when I pop this on. This is the cutest soft matte pink ever. Perhaps not the most natural pink if that's what you're looking for. If you're looking for a truly natural pink, go for Benefit "Dandelion". Otherwise if you're looking for a cutesy pink, seriously look into this!
#10 Peach Parfait
This is a gorgeous peachy blush! If you struggle with finding a peachy blush that doesn't make you look flushed/sun-burned, try this! Another good peachy blush will be Canmake Cheek Gradation in 02, but that one has shimmers. If you're curious what the Canmake one looks like I have a photo of it here, please scroll allll the way to the end to see it XD But the Canmake one is also a safe one to use.
See what I mean about the soft-focusing effect? :3
You can find these on eBay for around $8 each. Can't beat that price!!
In conclusion, yes I highly recommend! =D I was obsessed with the pink one for the longest time hehehe.
Remember in my last post I said I have so much free time now? Well I totally jinxed myself and now I'm trying to play catch-up ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Hope you guys enjoyed this quickie. It was pre-typed. LOL
