Etude House Wonder Fun Park Captures The Magic of Tarte Make Believe in Yourself

Several weeks ago Etude House Wonder Fun Park for Spring 2017 was released in Korea! I actually failed to blog it because I was busy and also, because it was a lot of pastel candy hued shades that didn’t quite capture my fancy. Fast forward, to the Tarte Make Believe in Yourself Collection that just launched and I couldn’t help but think how similar these collections are. Granted, Etude House’s inspiration as nothing to do with unicorns or mermaids for that matter but takes you on a trip through the carnival with cotton candy hued shades for lips, eyes, and cheeks.

Take a look at the collection below and you might see what I mean about the similarity between Tarte’s newest collection and Etude House’s.

The collection’s product spotlight lands on the two Wonder Fun Park Color Eyes Eyeshadow Palettes that resemble the Etude House Pink Skull Color Eyes I reviewed a few months ago. Each palette contains nine pastel shades or nine neutral shades that contain a mix of colorful candy metallics.

There’s also a rainbow hued Wonder Fun Park Candy Cheek Blush and a Wonder Fun Park Candy Highlighter as well as a selection of rainbow makeup brushes. I dunno about Carnivals or Fun Parks but this collection sure does remind me of another unicorn inspired collection doesn’t it?

If sparkly candy hued pastels are your thing I’m positive the Etude House Wonder Fun Park Collection is perfect for you!

    I’ve actually swatched this in store and I only ended up picking up the eyeshadow brush. I bought it because I like the way it looks rather than how it works, really. I was a bit tempted by the night-time eyeshadow palette, because of the cute packaging, but the shadow quality I felt was too meh. I might still pick it up if it goes on sale though.

    I’m a lot more excited about the Mellow Jelly Pots that they will be releasing soon though!

    I swear, Etude is the Korean Too Faced when it comes to packaging, but at least they’re a lot more inexpensive!

      Mellow Jelly Pots look like the standard single shades but the colors are what grabbed me 😀 I need that tangerine one in my life 😀

      • Isa

        Yes, all the orange shades will be mine! 🙂

        I think they are standard singles, but I generally like their singles, and I’m a sucker for candy coloured or themed packaging. 🙂

          EH does oranges so well 😀 I love the jelly bean idea ;-D cute! Also, did you see the pretty citrus-y hues from the Year of the Rooster release!

          • Isa

            Yes I did and I immediately picked up the orange and the red on release! Then the entire collection went on 50% off when this Wonder Fun Park collection launched and I got 4 more shadows lol.

          • Isabella Muse

            haha 😀 enjoy! can’t resist 50 off right?

      Glad you shared your thoughts on the eyeshadow quality. I love eyeshadow, so they’re really the only thing that caught my attention, but the only Etude House products I own are their single eyeshadows, which vary in quality–some of my mattes are quite thin. I’m tempted, but I’ll wait for a sale or to see if anyone else swatches them.

      • Isa

        You’re welcome!

        I generally like Etude singles, I don’t really mind that the pigment is not as intense as let’s say a Make Up For Ever shadow, because I’m not actually great at doing eyeshadow and I forced to make a choice, I would rather have to build something up rather than take forever to (try) to blend out mistakes.

        From what I remember, the mattes in the palette I swatched were ok, not the best I’ve seen from Etude, but I could probably work with them. The “jewel” finish ones were the issue for me. It’s the glittery type of shadow where the sparkles don’t really adhere to the base colour, so if you just blow on the swatch, you can see the glitter specks lifting off and there wasn’t pigment to the base colour, even for me.

          Oh, that is such a bummer! I was hoping they were rich and shimmery because they look so pretty in the promos. Yes, I’ll definitely wait for a sale if I still want it by then. It’s such a fun and pretty collection!

    I recently watched a review from TheBeautyBreakdown on YouTube on some of this collection (one of the eyeshadow palettes, some of the lipsticks and one of the cheek products, I believe) and they were all pretty crappy quality, especially the shadows! You could tell Morgan could barely get any pigmentation out of them not matter how hard she tried. It’s a shame because it’s such a cute collection. I’m really digging those polish and pigments though, so I’m tempted to try those!

    Btw, have y’all seen some of the super cute makeup brushes popping up on Ebay? They have the colorful bristled unicorn horn ones and some of just the rainbow hair ones and they are so adorable, and CHEAP! I’m super tempted to buy some. I hear some brushes off the bay are actually pretty great quality.

      I watched that video too ;-D that sucks! I’m glad I didn’t indulge. I wasn’t taken in by this collection because the shade collection wasn’t quite my thing! I really did love the Pink Skull Palettes though! They were fab 😀 The pigments are cute but I have a lot like it already from EH and a few other brands so I can prob safely skip! I have! So many indie brands are doing these lately!!!!!!
