Happy weekend everyone!
So last week I went on a little shopping spree in Myeongdong, the shopping area in Seoul, and got some single eyeshadows from Etude House. They’re usually 3,500KRW but on sale I got it for 2,500KRW, so I got four single shadows for 10,000KRW. Which made me a very happy shopper!
The colors that I selected are a mix of new colors that were released and from previous seasons. RD305 빛 좋은 오로라살구 (good light aurora apricot) and PP507 나비니비 떨리는 (butterfly quivering) are from the 2015 Forest Aurora F/W line, GR705 밀키 스파클링 (milky sparkling) is from the Bling Me Prism line that came out this year summer, and RD301 정글 레드 (jungle red) is from the original Look At My Eyes eyeshadow line.
The pigment of RD305, PP507, and GR705 are good but not amazing, you have to layer a couple times to get a strong color on the lids, but what makes up for the light pigmentation is the texture. It has a jelly texture that makes application easy and it isn’t powdery so layering is made easy as well as blending it with other colors. These ones use your fingers for best application.
As for RD 301 jungle red it is like the usual powder shadows and in my opinion it has the best pigmentation out of the four I purchased. Also, the RD305 and PP507 from the Forest Aurora line are duochrome colors but the color contrast isn’t very strong as I would have liked to be. Nevertheless the colors are very pretty. The shadows at Etude House are a little cheaper than compared to other Korean road shops with a diverse selection of colors. So if you’re near an Etude House check the shadows and have fun swatching and choosing from the wide selection 🙂
