Review : Etude House Sweet Recipe Baby Choux Base in 03 Peach Choux

Friday, April 26, 2013



I seldom use a face primer simply because I don't think I badly need one. My dry skin tends to hold makeup better (than oily skin) but I still have to make sure I generously moisturized prior to application to avoid flaking. But due to extremely hot weather, I find the need to use one especially on times I am wearing BB creams and/or foundations.

The only primer I have used is the ELF Mineral Infused Primer which apparently bid its goodbye sometime January. Good thing I received Etude House Sweet Recipe Baby Choux Bases when I attended the launch. I  am using the shade 03 Peach Choux, a base perfect for  balancing slight skin discolorations and brightening dark-colored skin.


Allure: Choux cream textured makeup base supplies moist, bright coverage for flawless skin.
Features:
moist cream texture
flawless brightened coverage
sebum control 


What I LIKE:
  • The packaging is made out of glass. Though quite heavy, it looks very sturdy.
  • It smells delicious! I can't describe it but it smells like dessert. 
  • A little amount goes a very long way.
  • It makes my skin smooth and perfect for foundation application.
  • It can control the oil on my nose area.
  • It helps in making my makeup last longer.
  • It has sun protection of SPF 25, PA++.
  • It brightens my skin.
  • It is very easy to apply.
  • Reasonably priced at Php 678.00.
  • Available in local Etude House stores.

What I DON'T LIKE:
  • It does not have a spatula.
  • It is reflective on flash photography.



At first I thought the shade o3 Peach Choux looks too white for me. But after some minutes, its color tones down to a shade that will just brighten up my skin. Look at the photo below which shows the significant brightness and smoothness it gives my face.


I am considering a repurchase of the Etude House Sweet Recipe Baby Choux Base in Peach Choux because I like the effects it gives. But, I think this will last me a long time. This base is great for people who want to make their makeup last longer with brightening effect as bonus.


To balance out the whiteness it gives my face, I use a foundation in my shade or a tad darker.
