Sorry about the faded print. I actually bought this a few months ago!

Left: Here’s the company’s picture of the Skin Food Lip & Cheek–Apricot (so you can clearly see what the package looks like when you buy it). Right: This is mine currently. My finger is there for scale.

Cons
The application isn’t very hygienic. To open it, you side the top panel off. You could actually slide it all the way off if you want to. You have to wash your hands every time you want to use it unless you’re not too worried about getting dust or anything inside. I’ve had to clean it once in while with a tissue or Q-Tip to clean out some specs of fuzz.

It’s a pretty light peachy-pink hue. It might seem too light, but I like to wear it with a brighter pink lip tint.

Pros
The smell is wonderful. It smells like sweet, sugary peach-apricot candy. I love the smell. I find myself smelling it every time I open it.

I really like to blend this with my Etude House 55 Kissful TintChou (#2). Any bright/hot pink or red lip tint would do. I use the Skin Food Lip & Cheek balm as a base then add the bright lip tint to the inner/middle part of my upper and lower lips. It gives a nice, sweet-looking pop to your lips!

This is how I often overlap the Skin Food Lip & Cheek with my Etude House Kissful Tint Chou (#2). The Skin Food product is a base on my lips, and the lip tint is the brighter pink color on the inner parts of my lips.

It’s not overly moisturizing, but it gives a semi-matte finish. It does feel soft on your lips and doesn’t feel drying (see my note at the bottom of my post).

The staying power is decent for a cheaper lip color.

It blends nicely. I like to use is as a blush. Actually, I’ve been mainly using it as a blush rather than on my lips. But it works great for both!

I give this 4.5/5 stars.

I bought the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream (Tokyo) and it is a very similar color–the Skin Food is slightly more light. But the Skin Food product is much more moisturizing and comfortable. Plus, it just looks much better and smells really good!

Etude House: Lovely Cookie Blusher (no.1)

25 Mar

Pardon the creamy color on the puff -- I've already had it for a while and got some other makeup on it >.<

This blush comes with a cute puff — yet another adorable Etude product.

Cons
I’m not too sure about cons. Although I like the faint pink color, I think it’s too light for some people. However, you could try one of the brighter pinks. Click here to see the other shades!

Pros
This blush is smooth and goes on easy. It comes with this adorable puff that has a pink bow on top, but I actually like to use a short round brush to put it on. I feel like it blends in better than when I use the puff.

What I like is that it’s not a too-intense pink! You can put it on without it looking like too much.

One swipe of Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher. You can see that it's a very faint color.

Multiple layers of Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher. I patted the layers on so the shade is visible.

I give this three and one half out of five stars.
