It seems like it's been a while since I visited my local Etude House. I didn't even know they came out with a new collection until I read it on Lotus Palace's page and the Muse's page. The collection is called "I Can't Stop Smiling". I had to take a look myself because the items were so cute!
The new makeup items were cute indeed, but I didn't think they were worth it. The lippies and the mini mix pack set thing were so tiny!!!! I got the Smile Cheeck Pearls instead for 15000won.
Just for purchasing this one blusher/highlighter, I got all these freebies!
The Smile Cheek Pearls are supposed to be a blush. The box says it's a "baked multi-colored blush pearls. It contains pink, violet, green, beige and white pearls for blushed cheeks that smile".
The pearls come in a box similar to the Benefit blushers and it also comes with a puff that has feathers and a bow on it. The box is made of cardboard and is quite sturdy.
This morning I tried to use it as a blush and my cheeks came out overly shimmery! Well actually it was more like a pink pearly sheen. I had to rub it off and put my regular blush on first then swipe on the Smile Cheek Pearls.
The lasting power isn't that great. At the end of an 8 hour day, most of it had also came off. Mind you, I usually sit around doing nothing at school so my face doesn't have a chance to absorb all the nasties of the environment and produce excess oils.
I mentioned the rest of the items in the collection were quite small so I didn't purchase them, but here they are in all their glory.
A lip tint. The SA told me that they come in cherry and orange color. I can't remember the exact price, but it was around 6000won each.
