[REVIEW] Etude House Prism in Eyes PK002 Romantic Starlight

Etude House Prism in Eyes PK002 Romantic Starlight Review:

Etude House is always ‘in-the-middle’ brand for me, means they don’t have that superb product but they aren’t terrible either. Last year they launched so many new products both in limited and regular edition. One of the newest and included in the permanent line is the eyeshadow collection called Prism in Eyes. Basically it’s an eyeshadow with a lot of glitters particle and extreme sparkles.


Splendid Prismatic color fantasy embroiders skin around the eyes with extreme sparkle and defining color!

Etude House Prism in Eyes PK002 Romantic Starlight Review:

Etude released this shadow in 15 different shades, range from beige, pinks, golds, browns, and even coppers. From the swatch picture, these shadows have great pigmentation and can be used on its own either with a finger or a brush.

PK002, named as Romantic Starlight is a light pink glitter shadows that can be used to highlight your inner eyes part, to highlight your brow bones, to make a dimension on the lid, and if you have fair skin you can use it as a highlighter as well.

I decided to pick the shade PK002 because I think it’s the most safe shade among the collection. I can use it on many different ways and usually for a shade as light as PK002, if I made any mistakes it won’t be too obvious and the fallouts won’t be too crazy either. Just for information, PK002 is much less pigmented compared to other bolder shades.

The packaging is designed to make the user can depot the eye shadow quickly without any hassle like having to heat the pan or remove the glue on the bottom of the pan. All you have to do is to push the black part on the backside and the pan will come out easily.

They also sell a special case that can storage 3 of the shadows so you can build your own palette. I don’t have that palette though since I prefer a big magnetic one.

For Etude House, the eye shadow is more on the pricier side. It’s almost $10 a piece while their other eye shadows are $5 to $6 a piece. It is bigger in size though so it’s a justification for the price.

The packaging is quite different from any other Etude’s eye shadows. It’s placed in a rectangular-shaped packaging with just a little information on the backside. It’s bulky but it feels so sturdy so you won’t even have to worry it’ll break.

Mine fell once but it didn’t break or cracked at all! If you hate bulky packaging, remember you can always depot it and store it on your favorite empty magnetic palette.

Even though it is advertised as an eye shadow with ‘extreme sparkles’, I don’t see any big chunk of glitters just like I usually did with other glittery eye shadows. The glitter in this one is more subtle, something you can’t see unless you swatch it or look through it under the lights.

I really love how smooth the glitters are because it means there would be a minimal fallouts. It also reflects the lights nicely and I think it’s something you can wear to a party and still looks good if you don’t want to wear heavy eye makeup.

I do have really oily lids area so eye shadows tend to crease and wear off faster on me even when I used an eye primer. On the website they didn’t tell to use the shadow with an eye primer so I didn’t (and hoping it won’t fade and make a mess).

I used my finger to put it on because with this type of formula, finger is the best way to make it more pigmented and stick to the eyelids. I combined the shade with other eye shadows to make it pop more and the result is really pretty!

It lasts longer than I thought it was gonna be, I applied it in the afternoon and when I wanted to remove my make up at late night the eye shadow was still there! If it works great for me who have really oily eyelids, it means the lasting power is pretty amazing.

I don’t have sensitive eyes so I don’t know for sure, but so far I don’t see any hint of allergies or anything weird happen even after I use this shadow for several weeks. But from the ingredients list, Mica is the main ingredients in this shadow so maybe if you have sensitivity to Mica you wouldn’t want to try it.

I really like it! It has minimal fallouts, it’s long lasting, the glitter particles are smooth and it’s easy to use. I can see myself in the future trying the other shades because it’s rare to find a glittery eye shadow works as good as this one.

I will recommend it for people who loves sparkly shadows or just want something to make their eye makeup pops. It is a little bit more expensive but it’s really worth the quality.
