I’m still testing out the Etude House Collagen Moistfull Collection, little slow I know. It’s been kinda an uneventful ride so far in all honesty. I’m not really particularly glad or sad that I purchased the entire collection but as of late Etude House is kinda a small blip on my beauty radar as it’s been a while in between stunning collections.
Etude House Collagen Moistfull Essence-In Base is what today is all about so take the jump for the review.
Topping off as one of my favorite items from the Etude House Collagen Moistfull Collection would be the new Essence In Primer.
Whoa…been a while since I got on board the Etude House express train. Honestly, nothing really tickled me lately from Etude House so I kinda haven’t indulged. Recently the Etude House Collagen Moistfull Collection released and at first I was like, mmmm do I really need this? But I kinda sorta was swayed because I generally like the Moistfull Skin Care Line plus it just sounded overall interesting especially in the dry Winter air. So that long story is how I came to hauling the entire collection.
Jump for the word!
Etude House Fresh Cherry Blusher Duo was released as part of the Etude House Precious Mineral Skin Project Collection. Someone mentioned that this was actually supposed to be apart of a collection all it’s own. A collection in fact like the peach one! Imagine a cherry themed Etude House collection? Omg love! It’s too bad that Etude House didn’t go through with the idea but I am happy they included the Fresh Cherry Blusher Duo with it’s Precious Mineral Collection anyway!
Jump ahead for a review!
Etude House Fresh Cherry Blusher Duo is a tiny compact that houses duo cream blushes. The shades you’ll receive are a nice off pink shade and a brighter peach almost coral color. You can use the blushes separately or together to create various looks. Combining the two shades creates a rather bright orangey coral that’s very pretty and flattering for Summer.
The formula of the blushes is the real surprise. Although creamy in texture these dry down to a matte powder finish which lasts and lasts and lasts. I was quite impressed with how long wearing these were! Although a Spring Collection, they make a fine Summer makeup addition due to their long wear formula.
The color blends easily, seamlessly, and flawlessly onto skin. Cream blushes can prove tricky during application but this is simply a matter of smiling, locating the apples of your cheeks, a quick dab and a swirl and you’re done. Beautiful, flushed cheeks. The blushes are pigmented enough that you can get decent color payoff from either shade but are also allow for sheer, subtle application if you prefer. Anyone with oily skin can appreciate the powdery finish.
Overall, a rather great little blusher from Etude House and a winner for Summer. I paid $4-5 retail for this from Korea but I’ve seen it on E-bay for around $10 bucks plus free shipping. I do think it’s worth the price jack as it’s a very nice blush that’s universally flattering for all skin tones plus it’s long wear formula makes it a great blush all around.
PS I’m kinda wishing it was cherry scented, that would be awesome! Don’t you agree?
Muse Approved for purchase!
Bless freaking be! The Etude House website has gotten a make over and I couldn’t be more relieved (although there be a steep learning curve for those of us who can’t read Korean).
I can’t begin to tell you how SLOW and tedious the old Etude House website was. It’s not bad enough struggling through the Korean lanuage but also having to face the horrible load time, the terrible pop up promos, and the amazing amount of ridiculous sections they had going on.
Yesterday Etude House was down all day and I thought maybe there might be some sort of new launch in the works but turned out it was EH getting ready to slip into some new clothes. The new site is a good deal faster loading, doesn’t load a pop up from the get go, and seems a tad easier to navigate.
I do have to reteach myself the lay out but I’m so happy it loads fast I may just wee myself in delight (but I won’t, promise!). It’s pretty much a one shot site and everything you may need or want is right there on the main page. I’m just delighted that FINALLY Etude House did a revamp because the site just really needed major work.
