Etude House Play 101 Pencil in Nos. 4 and 33

Hi lovelies!

I love it when affordable makeup brands go on sale because you know you can shop without regrets! That's what happened when I bought these two products from Etude House!

Etude House Play 101 Pencils
These are Php 348.00 each but I was able to buy them for 20% discount.

The shades are nos. 4 and 33.

I bought No. 4 because I think this would great as an under-eye glitter liner! I'm sure it can brighten up any eye makeup.

The shade is sparkly and nude so I bet it would suit many makeup looks.

No. 33 is a pale nude-pink shade that I'm very attracted to for some reason.

I fell in-love with the matteness of this one.

Below are the swatches.

I got those swatches in just one swipe and they glided smoothly on skin. It's very pigmented and you'll only need a few seconds for it to set on the skin. After that, it can stay the whole day, especially if you're using a good primer.

Check out No. 4 on my under-eye lashes.

And on the top of my upper lash line, I applied No. 33.

And what's interesting is that I can also use this as a lip liner and even as a lip color!

It does make your lips chap though... but staying power is pretty impressive!

So what do you think? The shades I got are beautiful and I wanna get more! And you know what's crazy? It's available in 50 different shades!!! WOAH! Awesome!

Have you tried the Play 101 pencils yet? What shades did you get?



  1. I really want to get this but whenever I'm in front of the products, I get so overwhelmed. Too many options to choose from!

    1. I know what you mean! It took me a while before I was able to decide which I will get!

  2. Love these! I still have to post a review on this they are really nice :)

    1. I'd like to see what shades you got and read what you think of them too! :D

  3. I think these pencils are totally versatile and although I own quite a few pencils like this I realize I don't reach for them very often! I love how your brightened your inner corners! So pretty!

  4. Thank you! I'm happy that you can get creative with these pencils. The Play 101 name really suits them. :D

  5. Awwww...I will surely check on these!!!! I super like that #4. Its def a perfect under eye liner. So pretty!!!

  6. Maybe you can put it on top of lip balm so it won't look too dry on the lips. That's what I did with my City Color Matte Lipstick when I found that it left my lips looking like the Sahara Desert when used alone. :)

    1. Thanks for the tip. I do put lip balms underneath any lip product, even on lip gloss! Haha! I hate having chapped lips.
