Blog #13: Etude House Sweet Recipe Beauty Review (Multi-purpose Korean Make-Up)

Annyeong, yorebeun! So I was doing some spring cleaning when I found these cuties again.

Yep, they're Etude House's Sweet Recipe Cupcakes and they have two collections: Cupcake All Over (eyes, cheeks and lips) and Cupcake Eyes! Nope,they're not edible but this line comes in crazy yummy colors and designs:

As a self-confessed beauty hoarder, I got my hands on three Cupcake All over and one Cupcake Eyes:

And yes, I admit, Sulli and Krystal's cute promos had a hand in my decision.



Just imagine creating sweet cupcakes with SHINEE... *sigh*

Ok, enough with delusions and let's proceed with a review of these multi-purpose Korean make-up...

First off in my list is the loner, Sweet Recipe Cupcake Eyes.

I'm obsessed with the coral shade. Imagine my joy when I found out I get a sweet pink and yellow marriage in a pot! Though the texture of this shadow's a bit tough, I love that it has high pigmentation. A few swipes of a finger and the color's already visible. The combination of pink and yellow is a lovely coral shade which works best with a girly, soft look.
Verdict: 4/5

The Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Color claims to cover the eyes, cheeks and lips but I feel that this specific shade best fits as a blusher for me. I feel it will work well as an eye shadow base for those with normal to dry skin (which I don't have unfortunately) and a NO NO for those with oily skin (tried once and I end up with a fugly mess of lumped up make up in my lids).

Verdict: 3/5

I love pink but this is my least favorite of the bunch. I can't use it in my eyes since my lids get oily easily (hello Mr.Clumps!) and I look like a sick patient when I apply it as a lip color (not to mention, it makes my chapped lips visible). I only use it on my cheeks when I feel like having color on my face.

Verdict: 2.5/5

This one I love! Unlike the earlier two, RD301 fits my natural lip color well. Love that I don't need to neutralize my lips with BB Cream just to have a standout color. This one works like a doll to my lips and cheeks. Will definitely not use it in the eyes.

Verdict: 3.5/5


I'm a sucker for anything cutesy and I have to say, Etude House hits a home run with its kill-me-now-it's-too-cute packaging of its Sweet Recipe line. The visuals on these products definitely contribute to its selling prowess.
