Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher Orange Cookie

Etude House Cookie Blush Review - Etude House Orange Cookie Blush Swatch

The cutest blush - Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher in Orange Cookie

Miranda’s Notes: 

Time for a confession everyone - for how much contouring is promoted and lauded, I actually don’t contour at all.  My sister is always telling me to try it for every day makeup and a few times, she’s even given me a little makeover and tips on how to highlight and contour.  I am fair skinned so using bronzer doesn’t look flattering on me, it looks more like a mismatched foundation shade (unless of course my sister does it, and then I look like Angelina Jolie…but who has the time and skills for that).  So based on this little confession, you can understand why I absolutely adore wearing blush - blush is shimmery (yay glitter!), blush is pink and coral (yay pretty colors!), and blush makes me look awake and refreshed (yay presentable!).

The soft applicator fits in the compact - the applicator is small so it’s a bit difficult to handle

I picked up the Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher in Orange Cookie because I adore the packaging of Etude House products, and because I wanted a unique orange blush color.  As you’ll look through these photos, let’s just accept that Etude House has the cutest and most frilly packaging - Pink Sith has the perfect explanation of what goes on at Etude House in creating Etude House products (it involves puppies, bows, bubbles, and hugs).

Pros: Etude House Cookie Blusher has a soft and fine texture that is easy to apply and easy to blend. While the adorable puff applicator is helpful, I found that an actual brush picked up the color and glitter sparkles much better. This Etude House color gives off a lovely bronzed glow and is likely to fit any skin tones.  The Orange Cookie color is surprisingly not that orange - this blush has pink undertones and the orange definition comes more from the gold glitter (see swatch below).  As I openly welcome and accept glitter in my life, this Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher is just perfect.

Cons: Because of the finely milled texture, Etude House blushes are not that pigmented and do not wear for a long time (neohh!).  Within three or four hours, I noticed the color was almost gone and I had to re-apply. The Orange Cookie compact is fairly small and easy to carry so I recommend having it nearby for some extra applications.

Grade: 3.5/5

    I agree, I can’t contour at all with bronzer because it makes me look bleh. Will have to check this out though! ^^

    This is a really pretty color! That sucks it doesn’t stay on very long though :/ But the packaging is so adorable, I’ll probably give it a try just because of that! :)
