AMW Reviews: Etude House Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Color



How late could I get in writing about these cute cupcakes called Etude House Sweet Recipe Cupcakes All Over Color?

I don't care!  They definitely deserve a space on my blog!  Again, I may be as late as ever but nothing as cute as these can surpass my wandering eyes!

Etude House is definitely a winner when it comes to "cuteness" in packaging and affordability!  I visited an Etude House store again recently and saw cute mini cupcakes and I dare not to ask the SA what they are for as I may end up getting more than what I need.  Do I even need them?  Do you?

Etude House Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Color review

These All Over Color are indeed...for All over!  You can use these on your eyelids, cheeks and lips!  As much as I enjoy using multi-tasking products, I've been using these 2 shades for only 1 purpose --- as a cream blush!  

 


Shade: PK002 Strawberry Chiffon Cake

Shade: PK001 Blueberry Cheese Cake


Etude House says ---


Available in 5 shades.

AMW says ---
Pros
  • Very cute packaging.
  • Price.
  • Multi-tasking product.  Can be used on eyes. lips and cheeks.
  • Very natural finish.
  • The effect is super pretty. 
  • Applies smoothly on skin.
  • Color payoff is just right, build-able.
  • At least 2 shades can be mixed together to create a unique color payoff.
  • Works alone and as a blush base.

Cons
  • No English Description and ingredients listing.
  • The color will easily slide off on oily skin if not set properly.
  • Hard to wear on lips and eyes.  If applied on eyes, may crease, on lips, color payoff is not as heavy.
  • Since this is housed in a "tin can" and the cream may end up drying out after a couple of months' usage.  (will update)
Neutral
  • Some shade would work so well on an individual while the others may not.  (ex. Strawberry Chiffon Cake if applied with heavy hand won't work for girls my age!  They are bright bubble gum pink that others may find too bright for their age.)
Overall
A very cute packaged cream blush that applies smoothly and not as long lasting as compared to other cream blushes I've tried.  You can create "obvious kawaii blush" or "very natural blush" by how much amount you use. 

Tips

  • PK002 Strawberry Chiffon Cake is best applied using light hand.  The color may be too much for users who are not used to "obvious blush".
  • PK001 Blueberry Cheese Cake looks crazy on pan but the color is really pretty and flattering!  
  • Use your fingers in application or a brush (foundation, stippling etc...)
  • Blend blend blend! 
  • If you have extremely oily skin, set the Etude House All Over Color with a translucent powder.
  • If you want your blush to stay longer, set with a similar shade powder blush.
  • For more blush pigment, apply with a "dabbing motion".  
  • If you have breakouts on cheeks, apply with a "dabbing motion", then spot conceal redness with your favorite concealer. 
  • Always make sure to close the "lid" tight to prevent the cream from drying out.
  • If you plan to use this on your eyes, make sure to use an eyeshadow primer to prevent creasing.
  • If you want to use this on your lips, neutralize your lip color by using a concealer on lips or lip eraser.
  • If you have dry skin like I do, you can use the blush on its own for that "dewy" finish.
Will I repurchase?
Yes.

To whom do I recommend this to?
When used alone, this cream blush is best for users with dry skin.  If you have extremely oily skin, you can still use this but don't forget to set with powder.

Where to purchase and how much?
Priced locally at Php378.00 (approx $8.60).  Avaialble at Etude House stores nationwide.

On packaging, the blush looks matte but the finish is "dewy matte" giving your skin a natural, healthy glow.

Out of the 2, my favorite is Blueberry Cheese Cake because the effect is so unique!  I don't own a lot of lilac colored blush but I have one from Benefit called Lolli Tint and this one from Etude House is quite similar to the one from Benefit. 

Have you tried these cute Etude Hosue Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Colors?
Which among the 2 shades do you like?
