Etude House: Sweet Eye Cupcake #3 Peach & Honey

Hey there ;D

I am a really a big fan of asian cosmetics, so i try out a lot of things. A while ago i purchased on eBay an eyeshadow duo from Etude House ... and well as always the packaging was at fault xD. 

I choose the color #Peach & Honey because i didn't have a similar eyeshadow in my collection and I am on kind of a peach trip at the moment. I paid around 6€, shipped from South Korea and shipping included.

The black ring inside the package i find rather ugly oO silver would have been a better choice, but oh well~ 

I always use a primer or a base under it so i can't say anything about the lasting power of this eyeshadow. The colors are a bit on the sheer side and don't have the soft texture I normaly prefer. The vanilla one is a bit more glittery than the peach one, what I like because I have a similiar color but without any glitter or shimmer. 

Overall I am satisfied with what I got, but I don't think that I will get more of those, because there are better eyeshadows out there. If you also want to try them out you can get them HERE

Review: P2 eye primer pencil

Hello everyone.

My first review here and before I review the item I want to talk about this topic, because I had some problems in the last few years. I always searched for a good and long-lasting eyeshadow base. I tried some other cheap products from Catrice and Essence before (I tried them before I became vegan), but always ended up dissapointed. Everytime I used these products a few hours later the eyeshadow gather in my eyelid crease and so I thought that using these products was just a waste of time and money... I went back to my old habits in fixing the eyeshadow with hairspray when going out and proceeded in not wearing eyeshadow at work . ^^"

After the "I feel pretty" LE was announced by P2 and I got a glimpse of the products and thought to myself that I wanted to give it a try again, cause all my dear co-authors were rather happy with their eyeshadow base products. So I went to buy the eye primer pencil beyond beauty.

Product name: beyond beauty eye primer pencil
Brand: P2
Color: 010 flawless
Price: 2,85€
Facts: It's possible to sharpen the pencil with a pencil sharpener for thick pencils. I tried to take pictures of the color on my skin, but the swatch was hardly visible on my skin. The pencil is vegan.

Today I made some pictures of my makeup in the evening. I put it on at 06:40 AM in the morning and took the photo at 08:00 PM in the evening. You can see that there is not much eyeshadow gathered in my eyelid crease after over 12 hours of wearing. I didn't correct or fix anything during work, cause of my laziness and having too much to do at work (and I also don't want to carry my whole make-up products around with me :P).

Conclusion: I'm quite happy about how this purchase turned out this time. It also seems that it's not necessary to put a lot of the product on the eyes to get the eyeshadow longlasting enough. What I like the most about this product is the color boost of the eyeshadow (the colors were a light grey and violet). What I will rate in the next few weeks is the durability during "extreme" conditions (when I go out with my girls for dancing).

Rating: 4/5
Minus 1 point, cause a small amount of the eyeshadow gathered in my eyelid crease after all.
