After some delays at the post office and customs I finally was able to receive my Pink Bird Box for February all dedicated to the new Etude House Berry Delicious collection. This collection is so adorable and cute and I was longing for the products from the first moment I saw the advertorial pictures on Etude House’s Social Media. And the theme fits perfect to my blog’s name, don’t you think the same? :D
First of all, some words about the Korean brand Etude House: Etude House is one of the best known Korean brands for cute packaging. If you are a lover of cute, girly and pink packaging, reminding you of being a child and the princess you always dreamt to be, THIS is your brand. Their packaging is usually so adorable that you cannot keep yourself from impuls-buys – only because you saw the packaging… Etude House has a blogger program called Pink Bird. Selected blogger will receive a monthly box for a defined period of time packed with selected products for reviewing purpose. I’m really proud and happy to be part of their Pink Bird program!
The Etude House Berry Delicious Collection is the main spring/summer line of Etude House for 2016. As you can see from the collection name, the theme of the collection is all about strawberries. The February Pink Bird Box comes with four products of the Berry Delicious collection, all of them covered in lots of strawberries :D. The box contains the Etude House Berry Delicious Any Cushion, the Etude House Berry Delicious Color in Liquid Lips_Juicy in shade “RD305”, the Etude House Berry Delicious Fantastic Color Eyes, and the Etude House Berry Delicious Cream Blusher in “RD301”. Additionally, the Pink Box came with a Berry Delicious Make-Up Pouch, which I fell deeply in love with ♥
Etude House Berry Delicious Precious Mineral Any Cushion
The Etude House Berry Delicious Precious Mineral Any Cushion is a cushion foundation, which creates beautiful pearly bright skin with its full coverage and smoothing effects according to the description. It is the first Etude House cushion I’m using, so I cannot compare it to the other Etude House cushion, but since it says “Precious Mineral Any Cushion” it will be the same as Etude House’s first cushion, the “Precious Mineral Any Cushion”. It comes in two shades, N02 (light beige) and W13 (natural beige). I received the light beige cushion, which is slightly brighter than my natural skin tone, but still goes well with it. The cushion comes in a pink and red cardboard box with the Berry Delicious logo printed on top. It has the English and Korean description written on, too. You can also look up the ingredients >>here<<, if you are interested. It contains safe ingredients and uses Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide and Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate for sun protection and has SPF 50+/ PA++.
The cushion itself comes also with strawberries all over. It is so pretty! It comes with a rubycell sponge inside and has a mirror attached to the inside of the lid. The real cushion is comes in a container with a plastic lid to prevent it from drying. As all cushion pacts this kind of containers are very convenient to use and perfect for travelling or handbags. You can remove the container with the cushion from the cushion case and refill it with a new one, once it is empty. All other Etude House cushion foundation refills should work…and if I’m not mistaken all products from Amore Pacific should work, too….Since the design is so cute it is nice that you can actually keep the case and reuse it.
When applying the foundation with the sponge you will feel the signature cooling effect of cushion foundations. The foundation leaves a matte finish and has medium coverage. After some time the foundation starts to get flaky around my nose and smilelines, which is due to the matte texture and my dry skintype. All in all the finish is very nice and natural- except for the flaking after some time and the need to touch it up somehow. It evens out the skintone as well. The foundation has a light and fresh floral scent.
Etude House Berry Delicious Cream Blusher
The next product is the Etude House Berry Delicious Cream Blusher. The cream blusher doesn’t have an additional cardboard box but simply comes as it is in a small round plastic container with strawberry design.
Shade “RD301” is a pink/red cream blush. It comes with a sponge for applying the product, but I find it easier to use the fingers. It has a plastic sheet for separating the sponge from the blush which is imprinted with tiny strawberries.
The color applies smoothly and looks very pretty on the cheeks. Since it is a cream blusher it is also long-lasting. And, it smells of strawberries! There are three colors available for the Berry Delicious Cream Blusher. I’m showing you shade #1 here.
Etude House Berry Delicious Color in Liquid Lips_Juicy
The Etude House Berry Delicious Color in Liquid Lips are described as moisturizing strawberry moisture which softly melts on the lips, with the sweet and sour colors and expressing juicy, wet lips. They provide watery and long-lasting finish. Previously, Etude House released Color in Liquid Lips in last summer, but I never bought any of these lip tints- I do not know why. The Berry Delicious versions of the Color in Liquid Lips of course have the strawberry theme again and are designed like berries. The product comes in a cardboard box with Korean and English descriptions, too.
A total of 9 shades are available for these lip tint. I’m showing you the shade RD305 “Berry Very Much”. This lip tint comes with an angled applicator for applying the product. The texture is creamy and reminds me of the Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint. It has a strawberry scent though and gives a nice color on the lips, which is pigmented and yet not too overly bright. The creamyness vanishes with time and leaves a decent stain on the lips for a pretty long time.
Etude House Berry Delicious Fantastic Color Eyes
The last product from this months Pink Bird Box is the Etude House Berry Delicious Fantastic Color Eyes in “#8 Strawberry Fondue” and is dedicated to the topic “when strawberries meet chocolate”. There is a second eyeshadow palette available for the Berry Delicious collection, too. The beautifully designed palette comes in a similar cute cardboard packaging, which English and Korean description. The eyeshadow palette comes with 6 different eyeshadow shades with different textures and an applicator with two sides.
The colors of the palette have adorable names which are imprinted on a plastic sheet to protect the eyeshadows. Hazelnut Chocolate and Berry Milk Chocolate are matte colors without any shimmer particles. Sugary Butte, Fresh Strawberry and Dip!Dip! contain larger shimmery particles and the shade Cheese Berry has a more subtle shimmer. The colors create some fall-off when using a brush to apply and have a light pigmentation, which can be enhanced when using an eyeshadow primer. The colors are nicely blendable though. I like the selection of colors and surprisingly I really enjoy the three shimmery colors of this palette more than the matte colors.
Last but not least, the pouch is perfect, too! I cannot wait to use it in future.
All four products used together can create a lovely makeup already and I’m feeling ready for spring and summer :D The new Berry Delicious collection comes even with more product, which you can check out >>here<<. There is a mascara, lip treatment and body skincare products. I definitely would love to try the Berry Delicious Strawberry Body Peel & Wash and the Strawberry Body Milk. There is also a super cute bread sponge available :D
