[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Etude House Play Color Eyes Lavender Land

Etude House Play Color Eyes Lavender Land Review:

This is the new Etude House palette from their most famous palette collection. Last year they released the Cherry Blossom palette around the same time, and it’s still super popular (as it should). They also had ones that were less popular (mainly due to Korean taste) such as the Ice Van and Beach Party (they had oranges, greens, browns, I guess it was just not their style). They also had semi-popular ones like Peach Farm, Juice Bar and Wine Party – they are good and a part of everyone’s staples… and maybe that was their problem: the brand’s classic palettes with browns have at least one shade tending to those.

But lavender! Oh sweet lavender. It’s almost pink, so Koreans like it. It’s unique. You can pair it with burgundy-ish (included in the palette), with browns (also in), with purples (also). And they managed to make it tending to both warm and cool tones, and that tone thing is very trendy in Korea right now. Let me say, I just wish it came with a lavender candle as a gift!

Claims:

+ 10-color eye shadow palette reminiscing lavender fields.

+ It blooms your eyelids with the depth of shading and colored tones that shine lilac, and with this one palette you can achieve several looks.

+ The eyeshadows are soft and have high adherence, and by starting with the best base they prevent fall-out and last a long time.

How to use:

With enclosed tip’s wider surface, spread base color onto eyelid and with tip’s narrow surface, apply shadow for gradation, eye edges or delicate application to lash line. (I use a brush at all times, only use the tip when I’m on-the-go simply because they last less time than a brush but are way more practical)

My Skin Type: Pigmented, oily, thin skinned and hooded eyelids.

Although the palette itself doesn’t look sturdy or high quality, it’s perfectly fine for the price/quality of the product.
The colors look beautiful no matter which light you look at them with!

And just before I forget let me mention the base color has tiny (almost none) sparkles that cameras just don’t capture but help brighten up the look.

Etude House Play Color Eyes Lavender Land Review

The colors are (from left to right):

Purple fantasy – it is a two tone shadow by combining matte and glitter. Looks amazing when used alone, it has a purple brown shade so it’s very complete by itself. Completely neutral.

Night walk in the garden – it’s a matte deep brown that helps you pull off any other look here. It can be used as a base or point, without interfering in glitter nor color. Completely neutral.

Provence with a sun glow – it’s a shimmer pink brown, that can play both to a warmer or cooler side, depending on how you do the rest of the makeup.

Dry flower – it’s exactly what the name says it is, it’s a matte pink brown. On my skin it looks cooler toned than on the website.

Purple shine scent – it’s a brown color with a gentle purple with a white glitter. Can play both to a warmer or cooler side.

Lavender flavored ice cream – now this is THE base. Use it and your makeup shall be lavender-y and long lasting. It’s matte, it’s lilac. It’s a cool tone but since it’s a base it just makes the purple shine through to the other colors, in the end it doesn’t actually look lilac. It changes the whole mood of the makeup though.

Festival of lavender in full bloom – it’s a shimmer purple that can tend to either warm or cold, depending on how you do your makeup. My favorite color in the palette.

Purple purple let’s see the flowers – It’s a purple with discreet golden glitter, it has the feeling of shimmer even though it’s actually a very thinned out matte and glitter combination. It can look warmer or cooler, on my skin it looks cooler. Second favorite color!

Please answer – it’s a golden glitter. Nothing too special other than it not being warm like most golden glitters! It’s also very fine glitter, meaning it merges well with any color you use here.

Sleep well, Lavender – it’s a shimmery pearl shadowy brown shade. It plays a little on the warmer side.

All the colors (warm or cold) look good in any skin, what they do is give a different feeling to the makeup you’re wearing.

The base color is indeed very soft and high adherence, and it is definitely a mood setter for the whole look. They should also have included a neutral base color though.

The eyeshadows themselves are not as soft as Missha eyeshadows, but they are far from dry! They are still quite comfortable, and it shows Etude has been improving their formulas (with the price increasing might as well do something for it).

The way I see it, makeup wise Etude used to be low quality cheap price (makeup-wise), like A’pieu, in 2014. And for the past 4 years it has increased the prices, making them mid range (almost like Innisfree) both in quality and price.

The shadows are longer lasting than I was expecting, and without a primer I only see considerable gathering on the crease with the glitter and shimmer shadows. But with one of their matte eyeshadows as a base, or a primer of any sort, even my grease hooded eyelids have no problems.

Now, the colors aren’t very pigmented… which is sad. They are, however, buildable! Except for the lilac base.

You can also use the 3rd, 4th, 6th, and 7th eyeshadows as a blush (this time I didn’t just try it myself, the brand itself suggests it!), and the 8th color very lightly as a blush point. Using two blushes now (one of them stronger or special colored) is very trendy right now.

Etude House Play Color Eyes Lavender Land Review

Before I talk about what I did let me tell you what the brand suggests.

They suggest base color all over lid, point color closer to the eye line. (6th and 7th or 8th) And to use those same two colors as a blush. It gives a very pulled together look! I used the same principle on the first photo.

They also suggest base color all over lid, point color on the outer triangle and shading color under the eye, and a gentle glitter point on the underline. (3rd, 4th, 9th)

The looks are on their Korean website, you can check on the product page.

The looks I did of course are to match me more, and to pose the challenge of using all the colors of the palette at least once.

On the first and third look I used the principle of the first suggested look by the brand.

Base color, point color, same colors as a blush. To me they look awesome with or without eyeliner, with or without mascara if you want a natural look, and with or without glasses (hey, it’s important)! On the first I used the brighter purple, and the third I used the darker purple, and they give off completely different feelings.

On the second look I tried to go more burgundy, and I think it worked. I applied a neutral (eyeshadow from another palette, invisible on my skin) base and the three colors on the left. Just like the previous one you can float these colors well between eyeliner, mascara, glasses.

And on the fourth look I failed greatly but I tried to do something more on the brown side.

I didn’t blend it well and didn’t fix my eyebrows so it all just looks messy. But the colors are still pretty cool. Since they all have a purple-ish shade to it, this brown look just reminds me of the Missha piggy palette! Also looks good regardless of mascara, eyeliner and glasses.

With strong makeup like this I always apply mascara, otherwise it looks… weak and unbalanced. But any of these can be done with less intensity, and they all look natural! (I won’t do it because you have a whole world of Korean people doing that, and they do it so much better than me)

So on and on it’s a great palette.

Quality-wise it’s comparably better than the Ice Van palette. It doesn’t blend as easy as the Missha eyeshadows (or MAC, or Jung Saem Mool) but it is still soft and blendable.

It has a wide range of colors and moods. I think if you like these colors then I can’t help but recommend it!

I wouldn’t recommend it for someone starting makeup, as it doesn’t blend perfectly without trying and the colors are more intense and unique, but otherwise it’s absolutely lovely. I would purchase it again in a heartbeat!
