Etude House Snowy Dessert Collection Haul and Review (Pink Bird Ambassador Box)

Tuesday, December 8, 2015

Boy, do I have an exciting post for you guys today! You might've seen my review and demo of these products already on my channel, The Beauty Breakdown, for the 12 HoliDAYS of Beauty, but I wanted to make a post so you guys could get close-ups of the packaging and products themselves!

So let's get to the breakdown...
First off let me tell you now that there will be no swatches in this post! I swatched and demo-ed all the products in my video review, so check that out if you want to see what the shades are like! 
Etude House Play 101 Pencils
I received two Play 101 Pencils in my Pink Bird Ambassador box this month and they're AMAZING! I don't know what I was expecting, but these shades are even prettier than I thought they were going to be! I got shade 71 and 73. Shade 71 is a beautiful bright pink with gold shimmer. I love that this is a duo chrome color and I think it'll look really pretty on the lids! I also got shade 73, which is a nude, shimmery beige. This is the perfect pencil for the inner tear-duct because it doesn't look too "aegyosal" but at the same time it brightens the eye area beautifully! 
Snowy Dessert Ginger Cookie Blusher
 Not gonna lie... I was thinking this product was going to be a bust when I first saw it. It looks super orange in the pan, but when I applied it, it is actually a very gorgeous bronze shimmer. This might look a little too orange for those of you with a lighter skin tone, so I would definitely recommend this product to those of you who have a little bit of a tan/darker skin tone. 
Snowy Dessert Pudding Tint in Grapefruit Pudding
Now this is where I was disappointed. *sigh* The packaging of this, like everything else in this collection, is amazingly cute. It even comes with a little spoon to apply your "pudding" with. The texture is very unique and interesting and is actually jelly-like. However, on my dry lips, this product really emphasizes the cracks. I really need my lip products to be super moisturizing, and this just doesn't cut it unfortunately. So I wouldn't recommend this for people with dry lips like me. It is a beautiful color and awesome texture, just not a good fit for my dry lips!
Yuck! Look at those cracks :(
 BONUS: Etude House Honey Cera Skincare Samples
In my Pink Bird Ambassador box, I also received a little box of the new Etude House Honey Cera line. It comes with a cream, eye seem, toner and emulsion. Honey has several beneficial qualities so I'm thrilled that I get to try this set. Also, these are great for traveling :) 
And that's it! That's everything I received in my Pink Bird Ambassador box for the month of December. I wanted to share with you guys because I knew a lot of you would be interested in seeing the new holiday line. Check out my video (above) for more in-depth reviews, swatches, and demos of the products :) Thanks for reading!
