Etude House was one of the first few Korean brands that I had discovered when I took an interest in South Korean culture. Their Lovely Cookie Blusher was also one of my first few purchases from them.
I purchased this blush in Japan for ¥500 which is roughly around $5 AUD.
This blush actually came with a little powder puff which I never used so I disposed of it. I will insert a photo of what the original packaging looks like for those who are curious.
This as one of those makeup items I purchased on a whim and I came into this with no knowledge of it.
This is what Etude House has to say about it:
“A blusher that supplies cheeks with vivid colour for a preppy and gorgeous look. Easy and fun to apply with powder puff.”
The packaging of this blush is adorable with Etude House’s traditional cute, princess-y aesthetic. The blush is contained in a plastic, dome-like compact which allows the powder puff to sit perfectly inside.
I’m personally not a fan of the powder puff. It fails to dispense a desirable amount of product on my cheeks . It is also not waterproof and easy to clean. Because of this, I apply this blush on the apples of my cheeks with my trusty powder brush from Nude by Nature.
This blusher comes in eight different shades which mainly consist of baby pink/coral type of shades which I am personally a fan of. I really don’t like certain type of blush colours (e.g. hot pink)
The shade I have is No. 6 Grape Fruit Jelly.
The picture above is what the blush looks like. If you’re wondering why there’s a hole, it’s because I poked it with a needle to see how deep it was.
I have had this for 3 years and I have only made a faint dent. This lasts for so long!
Everything on the back of the packaging is written in Japanese so unfortunately I am unable to provide any further information on what is written.
This blush is not the most pigmented blush out there. It just adds a soft wash of colour on the cheeks. However, it IS buildable. I am not one for very bright and strong blushers and I love to use this blush on days when I want to go fo fresh, dewy look. It is very easy to blend and does not fade throughout the day.
- The shades are very natural
- Cute packaging
- Very affordable
- Lasts very long
- Powder puff is practically useless
