Review: Etude House Baby Skin Veiling Pact

This is the compact pressed powder that matches the Baby Skin Foundation (which I will review next) that I bought along with the rest of the Etude House stuff click here. The compact powder comes in 2 shades, #1 for VERY light complexion and #2 for light complexion. I got the #2, I think it's suits me since I have the matching foundation in #1.... you know, to balance the tone so I won't look like an espasol ( a Philippine delicacy that has powdered flour topping) ",) Being a Korean brand, Etude House don't have shades suited for morena or medium to brown-skinned gals.

Here is a rundown of things to love about it:
  • It comes in very cute and pink with-a-touch-of-Victorian package... a great addition to my makeup kit
  • It has SPF22 PA ++ (yayy!)
  • It has a nice feel and texture on the face when applied
  • Reasonably priced - I forgot how much it exactly is but I know it's between P300 and P400. I think it's the cheapest face powder they have.
  • It has that light scent of baby powder which I love!!

Things I don't like about it:
  • You have to re apply it every so often as it goes pfffft easily. But considering it's just a pressed powder, that's understandable.
  • It's a bit powdery when applied so I use a face brush instead of the velour puff that comes with it.
Will I buy again ?
Probably not...for the reason that there's a whole lot of powders to try out there to last me a lifetime! '',)

Hope this review helps! 'Til then...

Etude House Beauty Finds

I got to check out Etude House in Mega Mall after the holidays. The ambiance of the shop made the shopaholic in me all jittery :) It's a small space actually but with VERY bright lights and pink and girly all over. What really got me excited about it are the affordable price tags!! It's waaaay cheaper than other Korean stores like The Face Shop and Skin Food.... and after a week or two of trying out their products, I can say it's not bad. Most of the stuff I got were really nice :)

Above is actually Haulage #2 (just got mixed up with the uploading)
From the top:
Proof 10 Eye Primer (this is good!)
Lip Brush
Sleeping Pack (night cream of some sort)
Baby Skin Veil (compact pressed powder)
So Lovely Allover Spray (scent)

Haulage #1
Blush highlighter (shimmery)
Tint Chou Lip Tint (red)
Mascara Guide
Baby Skin Foundation (really nice)

The Baby Skin Veil compact (haulage #2) is the matching pressed powder of the Baby Skin Foundation (top)

I've noticed that Etude House foundations and powders are for fair-skinned gals only. Most, if not all of them come in 2 tones only, for very fair skin and medium skin (which I still find too light for morena skin). Come to think of it.... are there medium-tone skinned Koreans?

I will do a separate review of these goodies soon. Any suggestions what you like reviewed first? Lemme' know!! :)

'Til then...
