Etude House Pink Bird Box August 2015

Etude house bling bling stickPink Bird box, it’s that time again (/^▽^)/.  Since I don’t have any subscription with any beauty box as of right now, Etude House’s pink bird box is the only thing that makes me look forward to a new month.  Days fly by nowadays and Fall is just around the corner already, thank god!  I can’t stand being all hot and sweaty during the summer time, it is no fun at all!  This month’s box includes 4 new shades for their bling bling eye stick, their new type of water based tint called “Dear darling water tint” and a couple other things.  Let’s start~ 

Please note that these boxes are not for sale and was sent to me by Etude House for blogging purposes.  You can find all these products on the Etude House global website.

First sample we got was one of their sheet masks in the version tea tree which is good acne skin.  Not sure if I should use this since I have dry skin, but I will pass this onto my boyfriend who gets pimples on a daily and we’ll see how he likes this sheet mask.

Etude House bling bling eye stick

Just this month, Etude House released four more shades for their bling bling eye stick which are cream eyeshadows in a stick form.  These are twist up so no need to sharpen and they are super affordable, retailing for $5.20 USD each.  They have not been added onto their global website but I will link them so you guys can use this post as a reference for swatches.  If you would like to see more promo pictures and a live swatch video, click here for the Korean website.

One thing that I do have to nit pick about is the fact that the shade number and name is not printed on the actual pencil packaging but it is on the sticker that you would most likely mindlessly rip off since it is the seal.  You’d have to make sure to cut off the seal if you want to keep the shade number on there.  I didn’t realized that the shade number wasn’t on the pencil and I mismatched all the lids, making it a pain in the butt to have to guess which one is which.

Etude House bling bling eye stick swatch#11: warm golden, pinky peach shade with fine golden shimmers (this shade reminds me a lot of NARS orgasm but in a cream shadow format)
#12: cool bronze golden shade; sheen finish
#13: warm yellowish golden shade with fine golden shimmers, sheen + slight shimmer finish
#14: warm reddish orange bronze shade; sheen finish (shade very close to #12 but is a more warm toned bronze)

These cream shadow pencils blend out easily, giving the eyes a sheer wash of color.  I would not suggest wearing this on the lid by itself as it rubs off easily, so use it as an eyeshadow base or if you want to keep the original color, set it with a translucent powder.  You can also use this in the inner corner and tear duct area to highlight and brighten the eyes.

Last but not least, the main event….. Etude House’s new “dear darling water tint”.  I have noticed a lot of Korean cosmetic brands are coming out with a new type of tint called “water tint” which is suppose to give the lips more of a water color and moisturized tint look.

Etude House dear darling water tint reviewThis tint comes in a nail polish looking glass bottle and the applicator is a standard doe foot applicator. I’m scared to tip this product over since there is no stopper or anything to keep the tint from spill out.

IMG_8033My bare lips are quite red and I have a hard time wearing lighter colours since it usually just doesn’t show unless I conceal them beforehand.

Etude House dear darling water tint review The color I got was Orange Ade which is a warm, bright orange shade which is one of the most popular shades in Korea.  With one layer, the color gives a nice tint and brightens the lips.  One thing I’ve noticed with this tint, it is definitely a lot more watery then regular Korean tints I have tried and it takes a lot longer for it to absorb onto my lips.  After it is absorbed, it does look very watery, kind of dewy finish.  I’m not sure I like this tint enough to use it everyday since it oddly clings onto the insides of my top lip even though I exfoliated very well and there is no dead skin in site.

IMG_8040With two layers, you get a bright “I just sucked on an orange popsicle” color, very natural and moisturizing.  Best part?  This smells exactly like an orange popsicle, just like what the name says “orange ade”.  I’m going to have to use this more to see if I end up liking it more then my first impression, but as of right now my feelings towards this product is neutral.

Which products stood out to you the most?  Will you try any of them?  Let me know in the comments down below :).
