❤ Etude House Review ❤

Etude House is a Korean makeup brand that you can find ANYWHERE in Korea. There are stores in every neighborhood and shopping center. All the makeup brands are like that in Korea including Holika Holika, Inisfree, Tony Moly, The Face Shop, Aritaum, etc.

This is what Etude House looks like. It's a cute, girly designed store and it's current celeb models are Dara, Minho, and some other Kpop group members.

Their paper bags are so adorable ! When you buy something, their bags are cute bags that remind me of the "brown bag lunch" I used to carry around in elementary school !
What I purchased is a primer and a base. I was quite curious because I'd never used face makeup before other than some low coverage bb creams.

Etude House was about the only place I could find a non-shimmer primer, so I purchased this. Actually, my unnie Jaewon bought this for me  It's the Etude House Collagen Moistfull Primer.

        On another day, my other unnie JaeKyung bought this for me.
It's the Etude House Dream On Base which comes in two tones - Mint and Lilac.

The product actually comes out as a lilac color (Matches my nails...) and as you start blending it onto your skin, it matches your skin color with a slight whitening effect.




It's the first time I've ever used a primer (or base) before, so I don't know if I'm a candidate to rate these products... But for me, I like low-med coverage and thin, non-cakey products. This product is soft and creamy, not too sticky, and matched my skin-tone well. The function of this is to hold together the foundation or products that is put on top of it, and it did a very good job at that. Only 4 stars out of 5 because it gave absolutely no coverage at all.
The base intrigued me because of it's lilac tone, which is indeed the reason I wanted it. I'm a fan of super light complexion enhancers, and this did the job perfectly. The light lilac color vanished into a brighter skin tone that blended well with my already pallor complexion. It looks super natural and is not heavy, which I love. I will def keep buying this for the future.

Thanks for reading ! xoxo
