*excluding the Makeup Essence will be done together with the Precious Minerals BB Creams next week!
First up, Etude House Precious Mineral Brightener. As the name suggests, its a face brightener.
There is a mixture of pastel pink, pastel yellow / gold and pastel green terracotta peral powder that does not have much color pigmentation (except a frosty highlight finish so no worries about looking pink, yellow and/or green). It reminds me of a sea shell!
You are supposely using this product as a face highlighter (on your nose bridge and on your cheek bones) but I personally recommend using it on your eye lids too! On days when you're too lazy for eye makeup but you want to brighten those peepers of yours, use a large eyeshadow brush, pick up some of the product and dust it all over your eye lids for instant perk-me-up look. Finish off the look with an eyeliner and you're done! Fresh looking without over doing.
Ingredient list of the Etude House Precious Mineral Brightener.
Next, the Etude House Tear Drop Liner.
I have heard of how you can enlarge the looks of your eyes by using a white eyeliner. I bought a Skinfood White Eyeliner pencil but could never make it work for me. I look weird with white eyeliner. And so, I decided to give this a try since it was pretty affordable. Its a white glittery liquid eyeliner. I wore it on my lower lids and was amazed by how simple it is to apply this! It did make my eyes look alittle larger than usual and at the same time, gave me this innocent-dolly look. Something I wouldn't recommend for working professionals. You can use this anytime except to work.
Finally, the Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint. I'm loving Benetint as a lip stain but I wanted something with more pigmentation and this fits the bill perfectly!
It comes with a doe-foot applicator perfect for application on the lips. From the swatch above, it might look like a scary red but upon application, it does appear to be quite a sweet cherry pink. Best part? Not sticky! Since it was not sticky, I decided to try it as a cheek stain and it works too! I dab the doe-foot applicator on my fingers, dab 3 dots on my cheeks and blend it out. Perfect flush!
The only part about this product that I did not like is the scent. I'm not a fan of cherries. They remind me of cough mixture. But other than the scent, I totally recommend this to anyone! Perfect for travelling! A lip and cheek stain!
Once again, these babies are available here. The blog shop owner, earlgreyparty , will be giving all my readers a 10% discount on all orders placed with them when you quote 'ilovekimoko'! Go on and haul away!
Oh yes, I have a very important announcement to make tomorrow! Those who are following my Twitter and have added me into their facebook (firstname.lastname@example.org) would have probably known it by now but all details will be revealed in tomorrow's entry! Keep on reading this journal!

it is but very subtle. unlike certain highlighters that are overly shimmery that makes you look like a disco ball, the shimmer to the precious mineral brighter is very subtle and is perfect for highlighting! ;)
