Etude House & Rose Flowering Eyes

Etude House has been on fire for the past few months (fabulous releases, one after another), so I was understandably excited when the & Rose Flowering Eyes palette landed in my mailbox.


Name: Etude House 에뛰드하우스 & Rose Flowering Eyes 앤로즈 플라워링 아이즈
Price: ₩ 20,000 for 1 g (×10)
Made in: Korea

The compact is well made, has a nicely sized mirror and houses excellent sponge tip applicators.

The palette comes with ten eyeshadow colours in total and they all bear their own names:-

◆ Falling (shimmer): golden copper
◆ Fade (matte): dark tan
◆ Innocent (matte): buff
◆ Delight (matte): apricot
◆ Pure (shimmer): beige
◆ Romance (shimmer): melon pink
◆ Blossom (matte): burgundy
◆ Petal (matte): persian orange
◆ Gloomy (matte): pansy purple
◆ Poison (shimmer): mauve brown

Falling - Fade - Innocent - Delight - Pure

Falling - Fade - Innocent - Delight - Pure

Romance - Blossom - Petal - Gloomy - Poison

Romance - Blossom - Petal - Gloomy - Poison

As expected, the pigmentation is exceptional and they have buttery smooth textures. I enjoy using this palette and will most likely reach for it often over the next couple of months. You should give it a look if you want to indulge in the hottest colours this season without spending a pretty penny.

Stay tuned for the final part, which will be posted here in six days' time!

Disclosure: Pink Bird sample.

all colors look very nice! i used to think etude eyeshadows are chalky but they must have stepped up the game.
the look you created is very beautiful. ;)

Nisa said...

My wallet says 'no', but my heart says 'yes'! lol

Our local Etude House branch hasn't brought in this line, they're so late in the game sometimes.

If they bring this in, I might get it, if it's affordable.
It's just a pretty lovely palette, I might even just order it now lol

Hi Vonvon!

What? That's outrageous! What about trying e-tailers that are based in Korea? They should have it for a reasonable price...

Blair said...

Hi Nisa! Swatch and get a feel of the colours first before you decide. I read somewhere that it retails for RM 190 over here...

Blair said...

Hi Choulyin! ₩ 20,000 (RM 60) in Korea but an exorbitant RM 190 over here.

Blair said...

Hi 나니! Any tips on how to utilise it? I'm in a neutral rut ahaha

나니 said...

I'd probably use it with a cool-tone pink to warm up the outer corner. I think it'd work really well during fall. It could look nice with cool-toned taupes and browns too, I reckon! : D

Deann said...

I love the colors! It really looks like the colors of the rose! I love that red color!

Sarvin Sidhu said...

Monica Calangian said...

Wow! I didn't know EH has this line now. Love the colors!

Gina Bestari said...

the shades offered are very versatile! I never a fan of Etude cosmetics because I think they can be too girly cute but this palette I have to admit; is gorgeous! the shades are fairly matte with a subtle shimmer.. :D However I dont care for the packaging cause it looks flimsy...but hey as long as they delivered what they are promised right?! thanks! I am going to check this one out :D

Cynthia Loh said...

Wow...Very hard to get a EH palette which is so pigmented.
