Review & Swatches : Etude House Bling Bling Eye Stick

Hi girls!
 I've got another review for you :)

  It's from Etude House for their 
'Bling Bling Eye Stick'

 I got it for IDR. 108000rupiahs ( around $10.80 US Dollar ) each from Etude House Counter in Mal Kelapa Gading.
But, I got it because their having a SALE for buy 2 get 1 free just for this items.

* I'm such a cheap bastard *

Yes, most of the reason why I pick these up because of the SALE. Because I really do have this love and hate relationship with Etude House. Some of their product is just mainly selling the cute packaging and so-so quality of the product ( with high price in their original counter ), BUT don't get me wrong.. I love Etude and I find some of their product is good and become my favorite piece of cosmetic that I carry around in my bag.

K. Enough rambling. Let's get back to the topic, shall we? :)

The color that I pick up is :
  • #02 Butterfly Star ( shimmery pale yellow ) 
  • #04 Purple Aurora ( shimmery purple ) 
  • #05 Silver Milky Way ( shimmery grey)

And I believe they have 4 shades that available in the counter. The other color that I don't choose is shimmery white, unless they give me buy 2 get 2 at that time. hahaha

Basically, this Bling Bling Eye Stick is an eyeshadow stick, but the lady in the counter said it could be as a base. The packaging is cute, it is a simple design and practical to be carried around.
You need to turn it to get into the product, like a concealer stick. And one thing that I like about the packaging is you can see the actual color at the bottom, so you don't need to open the cap just to make sure that's the color you're going for. ( see the picture below )

that simple thing that makes your life easier, right? :D

The product itself really is a stick, not creamy nor sticky, like eye base supposed to be ( I must say NYX jumbo eye pencil as a comparison ), but it glide on easily and the color pay off is good. * Bling Bling like a kaching kaching :D *

And another thing, you can't get much of the product in terms of stick packaging. But I think it will last you a quite long time since you don't "bling" yourself everyday every hour on normally day, right? hehehe
see? that's how much you get the product. ( around 3.5cm long )
* pardon for my chipt nails -___-'' *

And see the colour pay off with the picture below :

I would gladly say that I got a good color pay off as an eyeshadow, in case it doesn't work as an eye base. For that, I need to test it out!

For a good shimmery eye base, it should make the color of an eyeshadow more vibrant and off course make the shimmer eyeshadow more pop out. Good shimmer eye base even make the matte eyeshadow become shimmer.

In this little test, I try in 3 different eyeshadow colour : from my 'Oh So Special' Sleek Palette that I already swatched in my previous post --> click me to see! :) 
or recently reviewed in my other post --> Review & Swatches : Sleek Oh So Special Palette
  • organza ( shimmery brownish champagne colour )
  • noir ( matte jet black )
  • pamper ( matte peachy nude coral )

 ( at direct sunlight )

( indoor artificial light )

As you can see from the first row, it IS really makes the shimmery eyeshadow more vibrant. As well as the second row, the matte black eyeshadow got a shimmer undertone to it. BUT, look at the third row, this time I really dab my eyeshadow and pack a lot of color to it, the shimmer is just got covered. :(
 Well I guess.. it really can do it's job as an eye base, as long as you know how to work it out.

My Thoughts
For the price I pay, I'm quite pleased with the product. Nobody hate SALE when it comes around, right? :D And.. I don't think I would suggest you to buy this product at a normal price. It's a good product, but I must say it will be overprice for the amount of money that you spend for an eyeshadow. :) But heck yea when it's on SALE! hahaha.

Note : And yes, they tend to crease when you wear it alone, especially without any good eyeshadow primer underneath or if you have an oily eyelid.


That's it my review.
Let me know what you think!
Good day all!
Smile :)
