I got carried away by the virtual eye candy that is Etude House, that Korean makeup store I spotted in SM Baguio. Stepped inside to find lip balm for Alexa, but wound up buying 3 items for myself as well — peachy pink blushes for the sunny days and a tube of crystal clear lip gloss which I’ve never ever bought before.
Alexa easily picked a peachy Kissfull Lip Care #2 in cute retro packaging. Swatched the several blushers and fell for the non-chalky pink color of My Lovely Cookie Blusher in #7 Rose Macaron and the Nars Orgasm-like tones the shimmery duo OR202 of the Dear My Blooming Cheeks line creates.
My sensitive skin likes both the two formulations. Wearing Rose Macaron for day a lot these days. It’s a warm pink that looks natural. I’m still getting used to the high beam feature of the versatile Dear My Blooming Cheeks though. The colors can be worn individually.
I got a Dear Darling Roll Roll Gloss to wear with my old lip colors. The hint of candy flavor is cute, such pretty stuff to thin down and transform a too matte or highly pigmented lipstick for the summer.
Etude House’s packaging screams dolly and sweet, yet nicely made. Prices are reasonable.
