Uhm, right - so another Korean cosmetics review. What can I say, the Korean makeups that I have been buying has really impressed me so far. I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship ;)
Etude House All Over Cupcake Color in Raspberry Mousse (Php398) was one of the three things that I was eying from the brand's newly released Sweet Recipe line. Supposedly you can use this product as an eyeshadow, a blusher and a lip stain.
Honestly, I'm a bit wary to use this on my eyelids because of its texture. From the promotional ad, I thought that it would have a mousse-like consistency, but I was disappointed to find out that the product is actually in a form of a hard balm. And it was sticky - so, oily lids + this product = hot mess.
Wow, sorry for looking super haggard - I really should stop swatching at night
The All Over Cupcake Color are all housed in the cutest cupcake inspired tin. The tin is made from metal, so this is actually a nice product to take with you when you travel. Because it's in a tub, you have to repeatedly dip your fingers in it to get the product out - not very hygienic, but again, I'm not too worried about it. Raspberry Mousse is a beautiful vibrant red shade. Perfect for that I-just-ran-for-2-miles-don't-I-have-that-heatlhy-glow flush which I like to cheekily sport every now and then ;) I like using it not directly on the apples of my cheeks but at the top of my cheekbones stretching it up a bit towards my temples (just like how Kate of gh0stparties does her blush). It's a very convenient way to avoid that clown-like look that I found to be quite inevitable when you use a red blush.
The product doesn't dry down to a powder finish - it's still quite sticky but amazingly enough, it doesn't budge all that much. Wear time is decent at 4 hours before I noticed any fading. Another plus point was the scent! It smells just like peaches, and that is just perfection in my opinion.
What's on your cheeks right now? :)
