Review: Etude House Fantastic Color Eyes Rose Garden

3. April 2015

Again, Etude House made me buy something because of its lovely packaging. I’m not using eyeshadows often and I definitively have enough eyeshadows to use up, nevertheless I ended up buying the Etude House Fantastic Color Eyes Rose Garden eyeshadow palette. I was so happy when it finally arrived at my doorstep that I had to try it right away :D

Some words about Etude House to start with: 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 adoreable that you cannot keep yourself from impuls-buys – only because you saw the packaging…Two new eyeshadow palettes were released, called Etude House Fantastic Color Eyes Rose Garden and Cherry Blossom, both perfect for announcing spring time containing pink eyeshadow colors. After some consideration I decided for the Rose Garden palette. Since both are limited editions I don’t know how long they will be availavble.

This small eyeshadow palette (actually it is smaller than my mobile phone) comes with a very pretty cardboard box printed with a rose pattern, which fits to the theme. The backside of the cardboard box contains English and Korean description. The eyeshadow palette itself is made of white plastic with roses all over. When flipped open, you can see that the lid contains a mirror and that the palette comes with 6 different eyeshadow shades. The eyeshadows are separated by a plastic (which has the names of the shades printed on) from the lid. There is also a sponge applicator included, which I don’t use, because it doesn’t pick up enough color.

The colors are pretty and fit well together. They also fit nicely to the topic of roses. Juliette is a sheer pink toned eyeshadow, perfect as base shadow. Honey Bouquet has the most shimmer particles and is a light golden shade. It is nice for highlightening and the inner corner of the eyes. Although Antique Touch looks quite matte and brown it has a nice bronze sheen and is, together with Handtied, the most pigmented eyeshadow of the palette. Vintage Rose is a nice highlighting shade in a warm light pink shade and fits nicely to Honey Bouquet. And last, My Girl, which is the most matte shade out of the palette.

Here are the swatches of the eyeshadows. I used an eyeshadow base before, otherwise the swatches are too sheer and don’t show off nicely.  My favourites are Honey Bouquet and Vintage Rose. I tried to create an eyeshadow look below, too, although I must excuse my limited skills :D My eye does also look a bit tear-y because I have caught a cold and I’m struggeling with lots of tissues for my nose right now :D

When using my eyeshadow brushes I don’t have much of a fall-off from the eyeshadows. Since the shades are light and mostly sheer fall-off isn’t easily visible anyways. I like that the shimmery shades are not overly glittery, but rather look lovely. All in all a pretty palette with some nice pink toned eyeshadow colors that have been missing in my collection so far. What do you think? Did you buy any of these two palettes? You can still get this one at Beautynetkorea for 13.50 US$.

    I also ordered this palette and I can’t wait to play with it :)

    Aww, this is a really lovable palette! It has beautiful colors and a nice design too. It would be nice if included a creamy shadow/blusher/lipstic like the Halloween ones.

    Ooh so pinky and pretty! I think these kind of shades definitely suit fairer complexions though, I look very garish when I wear pink shades in summer. And beautiful job with your eye look! Also I don’t think it’s possible to use up eyeshadows. I used my naked palette almost daily for the last 3-4 years and no shades have hit pan!

    Die Farben sind super schön. Ich wollte sie mir eigentlich erst auch kaufen, aber ich benutze viel zu wenig Lidschatten, damit sich das wirklich lohnt.

    Etude House always offers awesome products in the most adorable packaging ever! I am glad that you like this eye shadow because my friends have already bought a few of these a week ago. It still has not arrived, but I now think it’s going to be so pretty.
