Etude House Give Me Chocolate Review: Give Me Chocolate Shadow, Give Me Chocolate Nails

Etude House tempts us with a chocolate based collection come February. This year, it is called 'Give Me Chocolate' and as per usual, the items are good enough to eat!

Give Me Chocolate Shadow

Name: Etude House 에뛰드하우스 Give Me Chocolate Shadow 기브 미 초콜렛 섀도우
Price: US$ 8.50 for 4.5 g
Made in: Korea

These are teeny-tiny! You do get quite a bit of shadow despite the size though. They don't come with applicators so you have to use/bring your own if they make it into your makeup pouch.

#1 Cherry Truffle 체리 트러플 has a reddish brown paired with a matte coral. Both shades are buttery soft and smooth - a winner all-around!

I have a penchant for all things cool toned, so naturally, #3 Cacao Fudge 카카오 퍼지 is more to my preference. A dark cool chocolate and a shimmery yellow gold? 'Nuff said! The shadows here are drier plus the glitter particles add some grit.

I am intrigued about the texture for #2 Salted Caramel 솔티드 카라멜 . Shall I get it to do a thorough comparison?

Give Me Chocolate Nails

Clockwise from bottom: #310 Mint Choco Chip 반전매력 민트초코칩, #313 Cherry Ganache 악마의 체리 가나슈, #314 Milk Cocoa 봄날의 밀크 코코아

Name: Etude House 에뛰드하우스 Give Me Chocolate Nails 기브 미 초콜렛 네일즈
Price: US$ 3 for 8 ml
Made in: Korea

The polishes feel a little diluted/watery if that makes sense? They are not as opaque/creamy as the norm. Nonetheless, they give an even coverage by the third layer.

My mouth gaped open when I caught a whiff of the delectable chocolate syrup fragrance. By gods, the team at Etude House certainly kicked it up a notch when they brought the Give Me Chocolate collection to life! Last year's Chocolate Kiss polishes didn't come with a scent (aside from the generic nail polish smell).

#310 - #313 - #314

Order now on to secure these limited edition goodies. Once they are gone, they are gone for good!

I'm really curious how salted caramel will compare. So far I like the cherry truffle :)
