Etude House XOXO Minnie Look at My Eyes Cafe & Jewel Eyeshadow Review4:30 PM
Hiiii! :) I'm back to reviewing Etude House products! lol Too much EH on this blog.. you'll see more in the future. XD This post was actually meant to be posted yesterday but then I saw ep 46 of 아빠 어디가 and I just have to watch it. It was so funny, the kids were so cute and there were a lot of alpacas. *-* Okay enough of that, let's proceed to the mini review. :P
They only added XOXO Minnie shades in Cafe and Jewel though.
Cafe is matte finish, most shades in Look at my eyes Cafe are neutral and very wearable so I was quite surprise they added PK006, the hot pink one. Jewel is shimmery, perfect for the inner corners of the eyes to achieve a more youthful look.
I got all shades of the XOXO Minnie eyeshadows that they released. PK005, PK006 and BE104.
Here's a closer look:
PK005 - Minnie Peach
PK006 - Bubble Pink
BE104 - Shining Beige
I can't seem to capture the real colors of these eyeshadows because of the lighting. BE104 has a peachy base in real life not yellow, it has gold and silver shimmers in it. PK005 is more on the peachy side and PK006 is much more vibrant.
I think the packaging for the Cafe (matte) are really cute because of the polkadots. lol As much as I love bows, the packaging for Jewel didn't really impress me. Downside is I find these kind of hard to open sometimes. The hearts are so cute! *-*
Sorry, lighting sucks. orz
I had to put 3 layers for this to show up without primer, so yes, it's quite sheer. It shows up pretty well with primer though except for the PK005, I had to layer it. Both BE104 and PK005 are wearable and can pretty much go with anything while the PK006 is more of a blusher shade than eyeshadow imo but if you're adventurous with eye make up, I'd say give the PK006 a go because it's an unusual eyeshadow color. I tried it as a blusher and I like it. lol Doesn't last that long though.
Bonus photo. lol
These eyeshadows are okay. I like these eyeshadows, I never dared to get Etude House eyeshadows because aside from the fact that I don't use eyeshadow (lol), I thought the quality won't be that nice and I was wrong. Though the quality isn't superb, I'd say it's perfect for it's price. It's extremely smooth to apply though the matte ones were a bit powdery for me, just a bit. I don't really like shimmery eyeshadows but BE104 is my favorite. Doesn't have the peachy base color when you apply it though, only the gold and silver shimmers shows but still it's pretty! *-*
If you don't like these shades from the XOXO Minnie collection make sure to check out the entire Look At My Eyes line because there are TONS of shades to choose from! :)
That's it for the review.
My exam was moved to December 11, I think I already tweeted about it but just in case you guys don't know yet. :P When we found out that the exam was moved we hurriedly went to mall and watched Catching Fire. lol I also missed a lot of shows because I had to concentrate in studying so it's now time to catch up. YAY lol
Have you guys tried these eyeshadows? I'm not good at eye make up but I really want to try Etude's Play Color Eyes palette. *o*
