Etude House Eye and Lip Remover Review

I think we should all consider moving to Korea.

Anyone wanna come?

Hot guys, awesome food (spicy kimchi anyone?), and freaking ridiculously cheap skincare and cosmetics!

Etude House has an Eye and Lip Remover for mere pennies and it works a treat too! A friend of mine recently sent over a CP she did for me and she included a bottle of Etude House’s Eye and Lip Remover as a little gift and I must say it’s a rather awesome Steal and a Deal.

Totally a Beauty on a Budget find the only problem is getting your hands on some for a good a price as you would if you lived in Korea.

Knock, Knock! Hello? Etude House? Please come to the U.S.A.! The Muse and her friends here at Musings would be eternally grateful.

k thanks!

Talk to you soon!

The formula is one of those water base versus oil removers that you have to shake up! Once you’ve shaken it up a bit the liquids will blend together and you can wet a cotton pad and go to work removing your mascara, shadow, etc…

Shaken Up!

I tried this with various eye shadow and mascara combinations and so far it’s gotten everything off without a problem ASIDE from my Beaute de Kose mascara. That it wasn’t so successful at removing however it’s no fault of the formula. I’ve come to the conclusion I need gasoline soaked towels to remove Beaute de Kose mascara! That stuff is like permanent ink!

On everything else is did a simply great job of removing all my shadow, waterproof mascara, and whatever other eye makeup I was sporting toe the day.

Strangely enough the smell of this is kinda sorta like old lady perfume but I didn’t really find it unpleasant and thought it kinda added to the novelty that is Etude House.

I believe a bottle is about $2-$3 USD or so and at that price you can’t go wrong as it works just as good as the Sephora Eye Makeup Remover I favor.

It’s not Lancome Bi-Facil but it is a rather awesome little find should you get it for cheap.

The Muse likes it and gives it a Muse Approval for purchase!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Oh Muse, why do you find things that are so hard to find in the US??? I must have it!!!

    I wish I was such an addict back when I actually lived in Japan and had access to all these great brands! Such a waste!

  • millie

    hi muse!
    you’re getting me hooked on etude stuff already and i haven’t even tried that brand!
    when i went to hong kong in may, i wanted to get some of the stuff from the peach line but failed miserably in finding it, but now i’m going to korea for a year to teach english and i’m sooo hyped up about getting a whole bunch of etude stuff! whoopie! i probably gonna end up spending a whoole whack of money on cosmetics, especially if they have the kanebo stuff at super cheap prices. do you happen to know what the approximate prices are in CAD or USD?
    thanks a bunch!

  • Decorative Diva

    Wow, this sounds like good stuff!
    I’m now all curious about all the asian makeup you like.

  • loey

    Wow that’s cheap! Why do I get the feeling the shipping fees will be more expensive that product, hurh hurh.

    Anyway, Maybelline and Loreal have similar products at affordable prices. About 7-8 USD each I believe. I swear by these two brands. I’m sure many other readers have said this previously in the other posts, heh.

    Hi Tammy!

    Missed you around here 😉

    LOL! A friend who lives in Korean gifted me with it when she did a cp 🙂

    I had no idea you lived in Japan! Awesome! Yak you’d have a massive collection if you did lol!

  • the Muse

    hello millie!

    lol! 🙂 I’m bad for creating evil lemmings millie!

    I dunno if EH is available in China! I know they recently opened a shop in Malaysia!

    Oh my god can I come with you!?

    Believe me you’ll spend less than you realize. It’s VERY cheap in Korea!

    Prices for EH are extremely cheap! Most expensive item is prob $15-$20 USD at the most. Eyeshadows are like $5, blushes are like $8, skincare ranges from $8-$12 USD. It’s extremely cheap!

    Hope this helps 🙂

  • the Muse

    hey dd!

    It’s actually pretty good for such a cheap $!

    hehe wait…it’s not Fall quite yet…I’ll be doing fall haul soon from Japan 🙂


  • the Muse

    hi there loey!

    Very!!!! LOL! Probs so 🙂 Maybe $4 for shipping? So not too bad!

    I haven’t tried either one but I did try a neutrogena one but I didn’t like it 🙁 sniff!

  • Beauty Addict

    Hey Izzy, the packaging looks pretty similar to a fellow Korean brand U-Nuoco. Have u heard of this brand? It’s selling in SG but I didn’t buy their products. The packaging looks kinda cheap and the samples always look dirty.

    Etude House has a shop in M’sia ?! Really? Is it located in KL? That’s good news! I hope it comes to SG!!! 🙂

    gracie 🙂

  • ???

    dear darling,

    was wondering did you get my email about etude house is opened in malaysia? 😛

    if u need any CPs, do let me know, i'll try my best to get it for ya! 😀

    i tested out the base which u had, peaches smells so good! quite mattifying!

    and the blushers, i tested the cookies blusher, v v pigmented and not too expensive! too bad colour choices are limited >_< the cheek tint is very pretty too! but u have to get the darkest colour, the lightest colour just dun show, more like a highlight…

    the beam blusher, super pigmented and i think i can wear it over as an e/s! slightly strong as a blusher, but i am considering 😀

    they have the moistful mask in a big jar, very nice too! 😀

    i am eyeing on their bb creams and concealer too, there's so much to buy!


  • the Muse

    hi gracie!

    Yup! have heard! Never seen the remover though!?

    Ew hate cheap packaging and dirty samples yak! Sephora is legendary for dirty samples poo!

    I hope it gets to SG too. I hear they are trying to expand worldwide! how cool if we got one in the US! A girl can hope!

  • the Muse
