Review : Etude House Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Color

Hello loves!

Are you someone who is practical and would rather use products that have multiple uses?
Then you might like these products from Etude House!

Etude House Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Color

I got these three products from their launch a month ago.
These are Php 378.00 each.

According to the press release, these products are:

"Cream textured color for lips, cheek and eye in delicious cupcake designs."

Besides them being cased in these super cute cupcake looking packagings, they also have these pretty sweet scents (each has a different one depending on the shade) that I'm absolutely loving! The scent is mild so no need to worry much for those who prefer unscented products.

The shades I will be showing you are (from left to right):
Strawberry Chiffon Cake, Peach Sugar Cake, and Orange Choux Cake

Here's what's written on the packaging... not readable for me... so... yeah. :P

Anyway, let's go to the swatches!!

And the next pictures are individual shots of the product and its swatches...

Strawberry Chiffon Cake

I tried applying it as my eyeshadow but as you can see in the picture, you barely see much difference. I guess it will suit those with fair skin.

I also tried using it on my lips... but the result is verging on horrendous on me. I'm so disappointed that it looked that way on me that I don't have the courage to post it on my blog. Yikes! 

BUT this shade has a redeeming factor... It's a really gorgeous blush!!

In the above picture, I have the product as my eyeshadow and blush. I used a different lipstick just so I look, well, good. :P
Isn't the blush pretty? :)

Peach Sugar Cake

This shade is a pretty peach shade that I can probably wear on a daily basis. I like the finish on me as an eyeshadow, blush and lippie.

Here's me using it as my shadow, blush and lippie.
It gives a natural finish on me - simple and natural! :P

and finally...

Orange Choux Cake

This is probably my favorite of the three. Why? Because it gives the summer vibe. Warm and pretty - perfect for the season!

Using it as an eyeshadow, blush and lippie

It's fresh and something I don't have in my stash yet so I enjoy using this a lot.

So what else do these Etude House Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Colors offer? 
I believe that besides having multiple uses, it gives the dewy, radiant look on you. It gives the right amount of color, especially on your cheeks, that won't look so overpowering even if you accidentally add too much amount of it. These also never gave irritations nor breakouts.

One downside of this is that it tends to crease as an eyeshadow and lippie. That's why I use this mainly as a blush and only occasionally as a lippie. Another thing I don't like is that it isn't long lasting, even as a blush. You can make the lasting power longer if you top it off with a translucent powder but that would kill the dewy effect of it. Also, this doesn't come with an applicator. You can use your fingers but that's unsanitary. Please do make use of makeup brushes.

Overall, these products are good. Especially if you are an on-the-go person, these will really come in handy. I do think this is more suited for those with dry-normal skin.

This is also available in 2 other shades: Blueberry Cheesecake and Raspberry Mousse Cake.

So what do you think of Etude House Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Color?

  3. oohhh!! love the coral shade!! are they similar to the Bohobalm lip and Cheek tint from Mememe?


  4. I LOVE the Orange Choux Cake, and Peach Sugar Cake! :3

  5. I think the strawberry and peach shades are sooo gorg! They are shades I'd like to have but I'm not one to try multi tasking cream products. Yet to have the chance but I think it looks great on your complexion!

  6. Awww! I need to visit Etude House soon! All look so pretty on you! Plus the packaging, cute as always! ^_^ Love the Orange Choux Cake on you too!
