Hello everyone! Today is very beautiful here in Southern Indiana. The temperature is just right and there’s a bit of an overcast, so it’s just the perfect brightness outside.
Etude House, which you can visit at the global site http://www.etudehouse.com/, was very generous again this month in the Pink Bird Box. I feel like this one was even more unique than the last one I received, but equally as lovely. I think I forgot to mention this previously, but Etude House is cruelty free, which is only part of the reason why I love them so much! Thank you Etude House for not testing on animals. Also, they ship internationally!
The selection this month was just really fun to try out and so well put together. Everything seemed to compliment something in the box and the products just worked so well together.
The first thing and biggest item in this month’s box is the Open Your Eyes eye makeup kit (which is currently like half off on their site). It comes in a really pretty box set with a matte finish cover. When you take it out of the protective sleeve, it looks sort of like a book.
Here is what is inside:
Here’s a closeup of the Look at My Eyes Jewel shadows.
Both shadows are shimmery, which I like personally better than matte shadows. They really brighten up my eye area, which is prone to dark circles. The brown color on the right is actually more of a bronze and the orange color goes on more like a coral and has a beautiful shimmer than gives this shadow a gradient effect when worn. I’m very pleased with both.
Here’s a swatch of the shadows:
The Lash Perm Curl Fix! Mascara goes on so smoothly and the wand is small and rubbery. It does a nice job with coverage and the small wand allows me to get in the corners of my eyes much easier. It does last a long time and I have not noticed running at all. I think it holds pretty true to the 24 hour lasting power.
I love the Play 101 Pencils because you can use them as liners for your eyes & lips as well as blush or shadow. I will probably only use this particular one as eye liner because it’s black and I don’t wear black blush or shadow 🙂
If you are looking for a versatile, buttery liner than the Etude House Play 101 pencils are something you should definitely look into. They go on really smoothly, more so than any liner I’ve ever used before.
Here’s a swatch of the pencil:
Etude House was also generous enough to include in this month’s box a bottle of the One Shot Mascara Remover, which I have actually had the chance to use in the past and was so glad to get another bottle. This remover is oil based, but for me, oil-based products work the best to remove make-up.
It really does remove eye makeup in almost a single swipe, which is great because you don’t have to rub your eyes just to get the makeup off and risk stretching the delicate skin in that area.
See, check out all that I took off on a single swipe!
The next product is one of Etude House’s most popular. I’ve been meaning to try this for a long time, but never got around to ordering any. This is the Cherry Lip Gel Patch. It’s basically a sheet mask for your lips only. Recently, I know Jessica Alba and Lady Gaga have been seen wearing this gel patch. Etude House sent me a pack of 5, so I thought that was really kind of them. Isn’t it cute?
The texture of the patch really reminds me of jellied cranberry sauce, which seems weird, but it’s true. I had the strong urge to bite this thing, but I did hold myself back 🙂 It smells like cherries and has a cool feel, which I find pretty relaxing. I’m not so sure how much they’ve done for my lips so far, but I think this gel patch is good for a night when you want to wind down and to give chapped lips a bit more hydration than lip balm alone can provide.
Here’s a dorky picture of me using the gel patch:
The final and most interesting product Etude House sent me this month is their Flower Holic Any Cushion Decoden kit. Molang the fat bunny thinks it’s pretty interesting 🙂
Decoden kits such as this one are somewhat popular in Korea and you can decorate anything with the little charms pretty much. The idea behind this kit is to give a unique flare to your Any Cushion, which I’ll show you a bit later.
Inside there was a bottle of Cream Glue, which did not smell like glue at all and really did look good enough to eat. Don’t worry, I did not eat it. Inside was also a small bag of plastic flowers and pearl decorations.
I kept some of the flowers to put on a clear cell phone case that I have. Why not, right?
With each month’s box, Etude House also sends a packet of fliers that illustrate exactly all that is in the box.
I want to thank Etude House again for giving me the opportunity to be a Pink Bird reviewer and look forward to sharing my future Pink Bird adventures with you all soon!
Thank you so much for reading and let me know if you’ve ever tried any of these products! I’d love to hear your thoughts or if you have questions, just send those my way as well.
