[Review] Etude House Big Cover Concealer BB and Cushion Concealer + Monkey Wish Eyeshadows

Wednesday, February 17, 2016

In this month's Pink Bird Ambassador Box from Etude House, I got some exciting goodies! In my pink box was the Big Cover Concealer BB in Beige, the Big Cover Concealer Cushion in Peach Pink, and 3 Eyeshadows from the Look at my Eyes Monkey Wish Eyes Collection. I was sure to show you guys these in my recent First Impressions of the products, but let's get into a little written review :)

Let's get to the breakdown...

Etude House Big Cover Concealer BB in Beige
The concept behind this BB cream is to be a high coverage BB. I believe it designed with oily skinned people in mind. The tip is a multi tip, so it has different sides and surfaces so you can apply the BB cream is several different ways. You can use the side to apply a thin layer everywhere, you can use the curved side along your cheeks and nose, or you can use the tip for spot concealing. This concealer is very high coverage and set very quickly! When I apply it, I work with one section at a time. I find that this does ok on my dry skin, but I really think this would be excellent for oily skinned people. Also, I wanted to note that this seems to run a little light. Usually in Etude House shades, I'm always shade 3. However, the shade 3 of this BB cream is a little light. It's not crazy light, but it is a bit lighter than normal. Oh, and there are 4 shades altogether. 
 Etude House Big Cover Concealer Cushion in Peach Pink
I am in LOVE! I love this concealer. This is a color-correcting concealer so it brightens any areas you apply it to. They do have 3 other "skin-colored" shades, which are designed for covering pimples, under eye areas, etc., and 3 color correcting concealers in total. This one is not necessarily for covering pimples but I love using this under my eyes! It really does brighten my face and it blends so nicely! I really do like this and find myself reaching for it a lot. 
 Of course, my only complaint of this concealer is the applicator. I really don't care for these sponge tip applicators. How I use this is I just swipe it onto the back of my clean hand and then apply it on my face from there. 
Below are swatches of both the Concealer BB and Concealer Cushion. The first picture is my hand with no makeup. I use this area for my swatches because of the freckle of my wrist! haha. It's a great gauge to see the coverage and how it looks in general. To see it on my face and see how it blends/the application, check out my first impressions above!
The swatch on the left is the concealer BB in beige. The swatch on the right is the concealer cushion in peach pink. 
 Look at My Eyes Monkey Wish Eyes 
I received 3 different eyeshadows. Etude House brought out these eyeshadows in celebration of the Lunar New Year and the Year of the Monkey (Fun Fact: I was born during the Year of the Monkey!). The packaging of these eyeshadows are limited edition and each eyeshadow has a little monkey imprinted in each eyeshadow! 
 From left to right, the eyeshadow shades are BE109 Pay Day, PK013 Cheer Up, and GR707 Exam Passed.
The swatches below are done without an eyeshadow primer and with my finger. Overall, I'll be honest. I'm not impressed with these eyeshadows. These actually swatched a lot nicer than I thought they would! On my eyes, I don't think they look particularly nice. I feel like these fall short of the quality Etude House usually has for the eyeshadows. My favorite color is Exam Passed but the one that is the smoothest is Pay Day. Unfortunately, Cheer Up is just too chunky and not very smooth.

Alright, so that's what I received in my last Pink Bird Ambassador Box! Hope you guys enjoyed and don't forget to follow this website for more reviews and subscribe to my youtube channel, The Beauty Breakdown! I'll love you forever :)
