KollectionK Reivew | Etude House Highlighter, Cheek color, & Lipstick!~

KollectionK is one of the most underrated online shops for Korean merch. They ship worldwide, free shipping to US with orders over $100 (group orders anyone?) and they are located in Seoul, Korea! They have a convenient and user-friendly designed website to navigate through and they carry all of your favorite Korean make up brands like Holika Holika, Missha, Skin Food, Etude House and more! 

To my surprise, they kindly offered to send me the following Etude House items of my choice to review both here on my blog and on my YouTube channel.
While checking out their items, I delightfully came across this uniquely designed highlighter.

This is Etude House's Golden Ratio Face Glam Highlighter in #1
When I first played around with it I saw it had two compartments. A solid form which was revealed after opening the top cap along with a handy mirror and a liquid form that is within the bottled portion of the highlighter.
I find both forms of this highlighter to be easily blended although I tend to use the liquid version more than the solid because it has a slightly warmer finish as you will see in the next image of my swatches. The solid swatch appears just a bit whiter so I am usually careful with how much I use with it.
I like to apply my highlighter underneath my foundation to give it a more natural looking glow so this is usually my everyday go-to highlighter to achieve that purpose and it works wonderfully! If you think this color won't suit you, check out the #2 shade instead. For $14.97, you'll get tons of product in this single highlighter of theirs.

Next up is my favorite lipstick of the season! Dear My Blooming Lips in the shade PK015!
Shall we just admire the adorable style of this packaging for a moment? It makes you want to collect them all for room decor and it is tempting to refrain myself from doing that after getting this one!

My only con with it is that the bow piece eventually became loose after only removing the cap a few times shortly after receiving it but so far that is the only flaw.

The imprint on the bullet of the lipstick makes it appear so elegant but the most admirably trait to this lippie is its color! It is a gorgeous berry hue shade that's perfect for fall and winter. It lasts for hours so long as you pair it with a complimenting lip liner. The one I pair it with is NYX's plum.
It's opaque coverage makes it easy to build the color with so I usually wear it when I do bold looks. If you plan on wearing this, properly exfoliate and moisturize your lips as this is a matte lipstick. From the photos on Kollectionk's site, they all appear to be sheer except for this shade. This currently retails for $10.50.

Last up is this lilac colored liquid blusher.

Water Color Cheek Blusher in No. 4 Lilac also comes in 3 different shades that I probably should have tried out first before this one. I'll stick to my deeper shades of purple from now on because sadly this will make your skin look ashy if you are tan and definitely my skin tone.
The texture however is smooth but after rubbing it in long enough to blend out, it feels a little chalky.
 D:

Maybe I could use it for face paint during Halloween this year! lol! But if you do have light skin this color might work out for you. I just know better than to be adventurous and attempt something this different again. This costs $6.76!

That concludes my review for this site and I hope you all enjoyed reading through it. My apologies for the lack of posts, I'll try and catch up again this weekend or so. Till then cuties!~

    They have so many great products and honestly I can't seem to favor any other Korean beauty brand as much as I do for theirs.
