Etude House Berry Delicious Collection ♡ First Impression + Swatches

Today I will be sharing with you one of my favourite Korean makeup collections that was released in early 2016; and it is the Etude House Berry Delicious Collection!

I feel like 2016 is the year for Korean beauty. There are so many new and cute releases between brands like Etude House, Missha, Tony Moly and more. I am loving the new releases, but feeling sorry for my wallet at the same time haha.

Etude House Berry Delicious Collection was released in February 2016, it is a Spring collection (not New Zealand season's) that includes your daily full face of makeup products. The collection includes a selection of their oh-so-popular Color In Liquid Lips, mascaras, cushion BB, eyeshadow palettes, cream blushes and nail stuff.

For once, I am not crazy about a Korean beauty product packaging, instead I am head-over-heels for its delicious berry scents of the actual products. Not every single products from this collection smells the same, some has scent and some has no smell; but the cream blushes I have smells so sweet and so yummy.

During Etude House's first release of the Berry Delicious collection, I purchased two x Color In Liquid Lips, two x Cream Blushers and one x Fantastic Color Eyes eyeshadow palette.

Then when Etude House released their Berry Delicious Sweet Box, I managed to get my hands on a box which includes a cute strawberry crop top, one x Color In Liquid Lips, one x Cream Blusher and one x Fantastic Color Eyes; I already have all three shades of makeup products included in the box, so I gave the extra to a friend.

Etude House Berry Delicious - Color In Liquid Lips Juicy

♥ Etude House Berry Delicious Color In Liquid Lips Juicy (ohmygosh, if I say that all in one go, it's such a mouthful) is described as a moisturizing lip tints that melts onto your lips with a wet look. It is available in ten shades ranging from sweet to sour.

As I write this first impression, I already had plenty of time to try and test out these lip tints. I like that the Color In Liquid Lips Juicy lip tints is sheer and buildable, it has that cooling feel upon application and each tint delivers a wet look as described. I thought the applicator was a little hard to work with, it's one of those fluffy doe-foot applicator with a hole in the middle, it is suppose to pick up more products with the hole, but I feel like it's not getting too much product out of the tube.

In terms of comfortability (wait, is that even a word?), it feels soft and moisturizing when first applied; and within hours of application, it was a little drying, even though I had applied lip balm beforehand.

Color In Liquid Lips Juicy wears for a short amount of time compare to other Korean made lip tints. These fades around the four hours mark, then I would have to re-apply.

Out of the ten shades available, I purchased two of the most appealing shades to me; I have the bright red RD305 and the green turned pink GR701. Both shades I have are as pretty as the packaging, also these lip tints has a fruity scent.

♥ GR701 Berry Kiwi Talk Talk is a green that turns a different shade of pink depends on your natural lips pigments. When I did my arm swatch, the color appeared to be a light purple pink and when I actually applied on the lips, the product shows up as a greenish aqua shade then as it sinks into the lips, it turned into a medium berry pink on me.

♥ RD305 Berry Berry Much is a bright red that I have been wearing daily as a gradation lips look. I'm not a red lips wearer, but I love that this one is bright, but sheer; and when it comes to a bright lip products that allows you to build up the coverage, it's amazing!

Etude House Berry Delicious Fantastic Color Eyes is described as a six color eyeshadow palette that comes in trendy colors and various textures for fantastic expression of the eyes for different occasions. It is available in two shades, that comes housed in a different packaging.

I chose Strawberry Fondue as the colors are more suitable for a natural, daily wear (not that I wear eyeshadows that often). I like that the texture of these eyeshadows are creamy and soft, easy to blend and so pigmented, even with the glittery shades. Unsure about wearing time as I haven't tried wearing them for a long amount of time, but as I was swatching these eyeshadows, I was already impressed with the qualities.

Etude House Berry Delicious - Cream Blusher

Etude House Berry Delicious Cream Blusher is described as three moist strawberry colored cream blusher that flushes cheeks for a lovely look. The cream blusher is available in three shades, a red, a pink and a coral. 

I have always been afraid of cream blushes and I tried to stay as far away as possible as I am quite heavy handed and would always turns my cheeks into a clown. So I only purchased two colors, the pink and the red; and surprisingly these cream blushes are so easy to work with!

The Berry Delicious Cream Blusher has such a strong and sweet berry scent, each blusher comes packaged with a puff. The blushes are super pigmented, but with the puff, it applies sheer and beautiful. These blushes are so long wearing, even in humid days, it wears for seven hours.

Berry Delicious Cream Blusher PK001 looks like a bright pink from the pan, but once swatched on hand it shows up as a sheer pink. When applied on the cheek, the color shows up as a medium pink and it gives a natural flush that last all day.

Berry Delicious Cream Blusher RD301 shows up as a bright red both in the pan and on hand swatches, once applied on the cheek, I had to be careful as RD301 has nearly a full opaque coverage. The color shows up as a flushed redish coral on the cheek.

Overall, I am loving the Etude House Berry Delicious Collection. I thought all the products were so impressive, non of its qualities has disappointed me and the whole collection is well designed.

The Berry Delicious Collection is available to purchase from the official Etude House Global website, but shipping is always a headache as you would have to spend a certain amount to get free shipping, no tracking numbers were given unless if you pay for the more expensive options. The products mentioned can also be purchased from eBay, which I thought it's a better option as eBay is always cheaper and they offer free shipping.


did you get anything from this collection?
what are your thoughts on Etude House's 2016 releases?

  1. I like the mint one more. :) The contrast with how you think it will look versus how it will actually look amuses me :))
