Etude House: Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Color <3

image

Annyeong haseyo! How sweet was your day? :) With the cold breeze felt throughout the whole day, I’d say mine went well! Got to relax after weeks of being stressed out! This kind of weather is really perfect for taking a nap <3

Now talking about sweetness~ Here’s something sweet from Etude House! Their Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Color which I got from the Sweet Recipe Launch :)

image

Re-introducing the Sweet Recipe Collection!

Inspired by the Brothers Grimm Classic Fairy Tale ‘Hansel & Gretel’ this sweet colored and delicious dessert designed makeup collection is fun, fun, fun for everyone!

image

The Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Color is a three in one color product that could be used for the eyes, lips and cheek!

{Features:}
  • Eye Shadow Base
  • Lip Gloss Top Coat
  • Cheek Blush
  • Long Lasting Color

image

OMO <333 It is toooo cute!!!!!!! <3333333 The packaging is already alluring enough!

image

It looks so good! Packaging A++! I’m sure that if you give this as a gift, your friend would be so delighted!

image

Though they did not put any English descriptions and ingredient listing^ all I could understand is that it will expire after 18 long months ^-^

image

{Allure:} Cream textured color for lips, cheek and eye in delicious cupcake designs.

image

The design just gets better! :> Look at its bottom! :D

So let’s start with the individual color review! :D

image

Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Color PK001 Blueberry Cheese Cake

Nom nom nom! :D This one came in a purple and pink combo tin packaging that looks awesomely cute! With three tiny blueberries on top!

image

The color is bright purple! Oh you might be surprised why someone would buy it~ But in Korean Beauty Shows, they use the trick of a  light purple blush to mimic a youthful glow!

image

Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Color PK002 Strawberry Chiffon Cake

PRETTY in PINK! <3 Cutie pie sprinkles on top! :))

image

This one is a really pretty shade of pink! Looks scrumptious too! Out of the five, this one is my fave :) *ahem along with the Blueberry one cause it is so unique!* Gives just the right amount of blush that will lead people questioning if you are wearing blush or not kekeke!

Etude House Sweet Recipe Spring 2013 Launch!~

image

Annyeong haseyo!!! :D Yesterday was a truly tasty treat for me & uhnee! <3 I was (and still am ^-^) superly duperly thankful to be invited to Etude House’s Sweet Recipe Spring 2013 Launch at Tous Les Jours, Eastwood branch <333 

image

SO I WAS LATE @.@* I arrived during Mr. Bo Ram Kim’s presentation :< sorry for the disruption!~ 

image

Well, there are perks too! One is that, I was seated in front!~ kekeke~ So I was able to see how awesomely Ms. Hana Lim* did the Sulli makeup! :D

*Not sure with the spelling~~~ 

image

Ms. Hana came all the way from Korea just to demonstrate to us the Sweet Girl Makeup or the Sulli Style makeup! :> So awesome! Plus she looks like Park Bom!!! <3 Really pretty :)

image

She applied the makeup with a very light hand!!!~

1.) Start with the base :D She applied the very famous baby choux base. Sulli uses no. 2!~ Applying the base will supply moist and bright coverage!

2.) Apply Precious Mineral Bright Fit BB Cream, Etude House’s best seller! Contains Pearl Minerals that inhibits melanin production and amino acids to boost and give a healthy complexion!

3.) Hide imperfections! Use Surprise essence concealer kit, the pink will brighten and the beige shade will give coverage.

4.-5.) Next up, Ms. Hana used the Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Color! :> Awesome~~ She used it for cheeks, eye base and lips!~

6.) Lightly dust face with the cutie cute cute Cookie Pact!

7.) With the Face Corset bronzer, shape face for a slimmer effect~

8.) Still using the Face Corset bronzer, apply some on the eyelids to create brown gradation eye make!

9.) Apply a brown liner to define eyes~ Do not wing too fabulously because we aim for a natural look :D

10.-11.-12.&13.) Curl Lashes, apply Dr. Fix Mascara Base, 3 Step Dolly Eyes Step 1!

14.) Brow Kit!~ Define and shade along brow area

15.) Final step!~ Apply Sweet Recipe Candy Stick no.3 to lips! DONE!~

image

Ms. Hana is super cute!!!! I love how she poses for the camera every time she’ll apply a certain product! Like she’s modelling too!!! :D

image

Natural porcelain moist baby skin and brown shaded eye makeup for everyday :D

image

And since the event was held at Tous Les Jours… we were fed with super tasty pastries!!! SWEET RECIPE <3 SO AWESOME~~ 

WARNING… next photos might make you hungry~

image

Their breads are made using natural fermentation! Baked fresh everyday~ (which explains the brand’s name :>)

image

No artificial flavoring and coloring!!! <3

image

PRETTY AND YUMMY~ <3

image

Oh!!~ And it’s my first time to see a beverage menu in Tous Les Jours! Usually they only have boxes of milk cartons and soda cans~ now they are brewing!!! :>

image

I was able to try their Iced Caffe Americano <3 at first I was like, “ehhhh this will taste very strong…” but after a few more sips!!~ It tasted good! I was able to finish it up to the last drop! :>

image

Say hi to Ms. Andrea Amado (Etude House President!~) And to Ms. Rea~~ The pretty lady by Ms. Andrea’s right~

image

The 2 hour event really had so many demonstrations!!!! <333 so I was very entertained!!! Say hi to Mr. Peter!!! The funny awesome chef!

Cheesy Jjamppong!~ One of my favorite unhealthy food <3 Instant noodles are just so yummy -.- Jjamppong (kekeke I remembered that my high school classmates used to call me Jjamppong~ XD) It’s a Korean Spicy Seafood noodle soup <3

I followed Simon & Martina’s advice and added cheese to it! Well they added cheese to Ramyun and not exactly Jjamppong :))) The cheese, yes, made the broth thicker and cheesier :) But the spiciness got countered by the cheese :< so it did not taste spicy anymore~

I recommend the cheese if you love cheese but if you want the spicy taste more~ then add a very very very small slice of cheese :)

Etude House: Happy Teatime Peach tea Cleansing Foam!~

Annyong haseyo! What will you be doing today? Well whatever it is be sure to clean your face before going to bed later, k?!~ So today’s product review would be about another product that is included in my favorites list! It’s Etude House’s Happy Teatime Peach tea Cleansing Foam!!! :D

Brightening and clarifying formula with Peach Tea extract. Supplies abundant foam and refreshing tea scent to cleanse and nourish complexion. Contains Peach Tea extract for brightening.

I’ve already raved about their Green Tea Cleansing Foam which is also a part of my favorites list :> kekeke~

If I got it right this one is suitable for any skin type, the green & lemon variants are for oily skin type while the milk & aloe variants are for dry skin type.

Sealed as always :D

The packaging is really a plus! It’s pretty and dispenses a controllable amount of product you want to use :)

[Directions] Wet face and dispense small amount onto hands. Lather and apply foam to face, gently massaging the entire area. Wash and rinse thoroughly with warm water.

SM Masinag = Etude House

While my sister and I were wandering around Etude House they played~ FANTASTIC BABY by Big Bang! I of course, acted like a normal person would do, danced and sang XD Then the head manager turned up the volume and smiled at me :)) Wow Fantastic Baby XD The staff at Etude House SM Masinag are the best!!! <3 They remember us and they would always smile :D

Little shopping~ kekeke My sister and I really wanted a portable bottle for our trips this summer! I was thinking of buying the spray bottle~ Mmm… Still thinking about it XD

So we bought the Portable bottles :) 98 pesos for 2 bottles! The design is so cute!!! I think it’s paired so that you could carry the toner in one bottle and the emulsion at the other :D

Say hello to baby malgeum and big malgeum!~

Annyong haseyo! My day started pretty stressful XD kekeke~ I thought we were finished with our Model ~,~ So many alterations but my partner Abee and I finished on time :> Mission 1 Complete! 

Today is Ash Wednesday too!~ So my next mission was to go to Church :) by 12:30 we were at the Chapel :D Mission 2 Complete!

Of course a visit to SM North would not be complete without going inside Etude House :))

OMO these new body washes smelled so awesome!!! <3 Made us hungry! The best smelling ones for me were the Strawberry, Chocolate and Milk variant!!! So sweet, and the chocolate smelled so DELICIOUS I WANTED to drink it ~,~

Also another new product is the Skin Malgeum!~ Though the only variant here in the Philippines is the Fresh Variant!

Also hypoallergenic, these toners are void of Paraben, Animal Ingredients, Benzophenone, Artificial Dyes and Mineral Oils!! :D
