Etude House Color Pop Review: Color Pop Drawing Show Creamy Pencil, Color Pop Nails

Here is the long awaited Part ② of my Etude House Color Pop overview. It was pure torture during the whole process to publish this post because I could not use the items until I photographed them. And I am a procrastinator... so, you can guess how well (not!) that went haha.

Drawing Show Creamy Pencil Color Pop

Name: Etude House 에뛰드하우스 Color Pop Drawing Show Creamy Pencil 드로잉쇼 크리미 펜슬 컬러팝
Price: ₩ 6,000 for 1.9 g
Made in: Korea

The two shades I have are OR202 Let Love Orange 렛 러브 오렌지 (true orange) and PK103 Luck and Pink 락 앤 핑크 (brick pink). OR202 is matte whereas PK103 has slight shimmers.

OR202 - PK103

These pencils glide easily with minimal tugging (bear in mind that I have oily lids). The colours are not completely opaque which means that they are very forgiving, thus fitting unsteady hands.

They last the few hours I donned them without smudging or transferring. I really like them and I wish they came in the ubiquitous black shade. I would snap it up in a heartbeat!

Like most Etude House polishes, the formulation run on the thin but opaque side. I could have gotten away with one coat but to even out streaks, I brushed on two.

CGR701 - CGR704 - CBL601 - CBL604

CGR701 - CGR704 - CBL601 - CBL604

From my pictures, one would assume CGR704 (forest green) and CBL601 (medium turquoise) are identical but that is so far from the truth. Please accept my apologies for my camera is unable to pick up the differences. You can refer to the picture below for more accurate swatches:

Your nails are gorgeous! I always try to get them that long, but it's a struggle. The liners are definitely not in my comfort zone as far as color goes, but pretty much anything goes during the summer :) And they look good on you!
