I would lie if I told you I was not influenced by media when I’m buying my beauty products. For Korean beauty products it is mostly other blogs, or the Korean Beauty Show “Get It Beauty”. The Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher was selected earlier this year by the Get It Beauty Blind Test as best pink blush. I’ve been eyeing the Etude House Cookie Blusher for a long time before already, but I thought it will be a regular drugstore blush with a cute packaging only. After it became #1 in the blind test I decided that it is finally time to try it!
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…The Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher has exactly this cute, girly packaging which makes your heart beat. The name already sounds like something deliciously cute and then there comes the blush in this simple pink container, but below the milky plastic lid you see a cute puff with a pink ribbon! ♥
Currently 5 different shades are available for the Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher, but the one shade that won the blind test was #11 “Peach Choux Wafers”. This is the shade I bought after all, a lovely natural beige pink color for a natural blush on my cheecks. You can check out all the shades currently available on the official Etude House page, too. The volume of the blush is 7.2 g, and since it is a powder pressed blush I guess this will last for ages.
The description of the Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher says, that this blush comes with a blur effect. The ‘unique powder reflects shine to various ways to express bright skin color and delivers excellent application and delicate vivid colors’. The blush is long lasting, too. By using sebum control powder the sebum of the skin is absorbed and the blush stays longer. Moreover the fluffy cushion type puff helps to blend and build up the blush as desired. First, I didn’t use the puff at all. It was just a gimmick for me, making this item so cute. But then I started to use it and I must say that is not too bad. It really takes up the powder, but does not take too much, so you won’t be overdoing it. Shade #11 is a light color anyways and is supposed to be natural on the cheecks, but still you can build up the color. This shade doesn’t have any shimmer or glittering particles in it, but it is completelly matte and a great all day blush.
I don’t know why I didn’t try the Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher earlier! The shades available are nice and this shade especially really looks lovely, probably on most skintones. Moreover the blusher is very affordable. On the official site it retails for 7.80 US$. I bought my Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher on W2Beauty for 8.23 US$, which is a good price, considering the low shipping costs compared to Etude House official shop. For those living in the US you might want to check out the prices on Amazon, too. Did you try the Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher already? Which is your favourite shade?
