Etude House & Rose Review: & Rose Drawing Show Creamy Pencil, & Rose Flowering Nails

There is quite a lot of love going around for the & Rose collection and I am here to join the fun. Fear not, this is not the final chapter in the & Rose series on my blog because I have purchased MORE Rosy Lip Tints. Haha!

& Rose Drawing Show Creamy Pencil

Name: Etude House 에뛰드하우스 & Rose Drawing Show Creamy Pencil 앤로즈 드로잉쇼 크리미 펜슬
Price: ₩ 6,000 for 1.9 g
Made in: Korea

The two shades sent to me are BE103 Creamy Romance 크리미 로맨스 (shimmery buff) and BR404 Sunset Brown 선셋 브라운 (matte chocolate brown).

BE103 - BR404

These liners are creamy and blessed with a decent colour payoff.

BE103 - BR404

BE103 hardly deposits any colour on my lids which is weird considering how well it swatched on my hands, paper etc. BR404 is long-lasting and holds up well in unfavourable conditions (high temperature, high relative humidity, oily lids) but failed the smudge-proof test once it came in contact with my waterline. Nothing ever stays there, so this outcome does not surprise me.

BR404 is set in place with the darkest colour in Lunasol Skin Modeling Eyes Beige Beige which explains the presence of glitters

There are two other colours:

& Rose Flowering Nails

Name: Etude House 에뛰드하우스 & Rose Flowering Nails 앤로즈 플라워링 네일즈 1 Watery Rose 워터리로즈
Price: ₩ 6,000 for 1 box (7 ml ×2)
Made in: Korea

1 Watery Rose comes in a set with two gorgeous polishes: No.1 Dewy Rose 듀이로즈 and No.2 Rosy Blossom 로지블라썸.

No.1 Dewy Rose, an ivory with small fuchsia bits, is a vision over dark polishes.

No.1 Dewy Rose - layered on top of a black polish

No.2 Rosy Blossom is sheer rose jelly. It is a beauty and I think that this particular shade of pink will flatter most (if not all) skintones.

No.2 Rosy Blossom - layered on top of a white polish

This set is furnished with a sheet of white lace stickers. I won't be using it, however, it will be nice to have around in case I ever decide to be adventurous with my nails. I will definitely get a backup for Watery Rose when I come across it in stores (yes, it is that lovely!).

2 Velvet Rose 벨벳로즈 is also delightful, but my heart belongs to its sister:

The & Rose collection is an absolute gem, and you need to locate it at the Etude House outlets near you!

How cute are these! That's one of the reasons why I love Asian cosmetics, not only they're cute but I'm so in love with the packaging.

I want to try the gradient pink look, it's so pretty! I read reviews where the bloggers said that the lace gets caught very easily though, lol~ I want to try the red eyeliner from this range :3

The packaging is so cute! I always find Etude house the cutest packaging, but I cant ever buy anything from them since they mostly cater to fair skin.

n I have similar experience with brown liners.. They swatch very well on my hand but refuse to be seen on my lids!
I love reading these etude house reviews although I can't have them :(

I particularly love the liner - the color is great and I've never thought about using that shade. I'll give it try.

Rose is a really really nice shade for its soft touch of color and delicate hue. I really love it for the nails too :D
