Something Sweet from Etude House - Sweet Recipe Collection [Haul]



I am SOOO excited about this month's Pink Box c/o Etude House! Everything is so darn cute!! ^_^ 


I'm sure you can already pick out what my favoriteeee product is going to be. 


Now I just opened this box today so it's only going to be a haul, not a full review but I really wanted to get these pictures up for you as soon as possible so you could see a few items from the newest collection! 



First up...



Sweet Recipe Baby Choux Base - Makeup Base/Primer

SPF 25 PA++

This is suppose to help your skin retain moisture with a "fluffy" finish. It also is suppose to have "silky control powder" to control sebum and leave skin "flawlessly soft". 


I haven't tried this on my face yet but I have played around with it on the back on my hand a bit. It has almost a creamy frosting consistency and it does in fact feel kind of fluffy. When you rub it in it is very light and smooth feeling with a soft (almost apricot?) scent that dries to a powdery finish. I am curious to see how this product will react with my skin. *fingers crossed*







Next we have the - Sweet Recipe Sliced Cake Puffs

As cute as these are...




They're just makeup sponges. : \ 

Okay as a bonus but I wouldn't go out of my way for them. 
(I would have rather gotten the eye shadows from this collection. It says it was suppose to be included but it wasn't in my kit.)


Then we have...



Sweet Recipe Dear My Jelly Lips-talk 
in JPK002


"Vibrant, shiny, jelly textured lipstick that supplies juicy shine with translucent colors."

It is also suppose to have 5 different kinds of plant extract to help soften lips. 




Cutesy packaging. We expect nothing less from Etude House!




I love the little heart design.




Jelly color that can definitely be built up quickly. 

It's pigmented while still being a watery looking, high gloss lipstick. 




The shine is unreal! 

Overall this wasn't bad but for me the texture was a killer. It feels very greasy and thin which I'm not a fan of personally. If you like light weight lipsticks though this may be a good candiate. (I wish it felt more like a Dior Addict Lipstick)


Other than that it has almost a slight floral scent but kind of tastes like faint jelly beans when applied to the lips. (Not sure if that was intentional or if I just saw the package, couldn't put my finger on the flavor and took to suggestion. lol.) Not in love with it though, I probably would not recommend this.
Also this color stained my lips! 


And lastly...



My FAVORITE Part! 

HOW CUTE ARE THESE NAIL POLISHES! 

OMG >_<


Sweet Recipe Ice Cream Nails - Glitter & Stone Infused Pastel Nail Colors 




Adorable little ice cream cones! 




And the polishes actually kind of look like ice cream ^_^

Mint chocolate chip anyone? 





I haven't tried any of the colors yet but next time I paint my nails I will post swatches if you all are interested! Let me know in the comments : ) 
They look promising!


Available at Etude House stores around the world and for those of us in countries without EH stores :( products can be purchased from http://english.gmarket.co.kr/


------------


Hope you all enjoyed this quick peek into the latest Etude House products! I can't wait to test them out further : )

I will not be mentioning any Etude House products in my Hits & Misses videos because they are not super easily accessible which seems to frustrate people so if you are curious about any particular product let me know in the comments and I will see if I can elaborate further in a future post for you. 


Happy Monday to you all! I should also have some fashion posts up this week! Yay! 


So until then have a great day, thanks for reading and I will try to see you back here tomorrow.


-Holly




Disclaimer: As I've said before I am NOT being paid to review or post about Etude House products. I just thought it would be fun to share the items I receive c/o Etude House since I will not be talking about them on my YouTube channel. Hope you enjoy!

  49. Yes indeed too bad you didn't receive the eyeshadows. They look very nice and....delicious. I would be interested in a review for the Sweet Recipe Baby Choux Base product. And since there are so many sites that do free international shipping (like http://cosmetic-love.com/ or http://twofacemall.com/ ), i think you should definetely incluse these items in monthly hits and misses (btw those are my favorite, i could watch them even if they are 1 hour long) :D

  61. Thanks for this review Holly. My best friend did an internship in South Korea for like six months, and was sweet enough to pick me up a couple things from an etude store there!

  66. the nail polish reminds me soo much of the Illamsqua "Fragile" one, that NikkieTutorials reviewed on her blog :DD
