[ETUDE HOUSE] milk talk Body Wash *Banana, Choco & Steam Milk*

When I was reading another blog I saw a pic of a body wash from [ETUDE HOUSE]. It seemed to be new and I immedtiately felt in love with that. I'm talking about the new milk talk Body Wash! You can get it in 5 delicious flavours! I got my favorites Steam Milk, Banana and Choco. The others are Apple and Strawberry.
Of the shower sponges I purchased Banana and Choco since Steam Milk was always sold out.

Description: Moisturizing body wash supplies rich foam, texture and fragrant scent for soft, cleansed skin. Milk extract makes moist body and sweet scent makes feeling better.
First, I was a bit dissapointed when I got the body washes coz they are so small. Nevertheless, each bottle contains 200ml and now I find them kinda cute, too.
Each of the milk talk Body Wash comes in a round bottle which feels somehow like a rubber bottle but is probably made of soft plastic. The flip-top lid is white plastic.

Steam Milk:
The bottle of the Steam Milk Body Wash is white with a light blue print.
The consistency is not too thick, just like many shower creams/ gels are. It looks whitish and has the soft scent of milk and baby powder.

Choco Milk:
Choco Milk comes in a light brown bottle with a chocolate bar print. 
It has the same consistency as Steam Milk but the color is brownish, plus the scent of chocolate milk. So yummy!!

Banana Milk:
My 3rd favorite flavour got a yellow bottle with a banana print. Of course, it also has a great scent - the scent of a banana milk shake.
It has the same consistency as the other two again but a yellowish color.

The Choco shower sponge is still on the way to me, so I can show you just the Banana one:
Each sponge is individually packed in a plastic bag.
This shower sponge is yellow and got a small banana on top. The choco sponge is brown with a chocolate bar on top.
You can attach the sponges on top of the body wash bottles what is a cute idea.

How to use: Dispense product on wet bath sponge/puff and lather. Use sponge/puff to massage and lather body. Rinse with water. 
It can be used as bubble bath also (15ml).

Price: around 10,- €/ US$13 (Body Wash); around 4,- €/ US$5 (Shower Sponge)
Bought at: eBay ( & superoutlet-2009)  
What I love: 
Everything: the small design, the sponge and of course the flavours.
What I don’t like:  
There is nothing I dislike!!

Will I buy this again? I would! Still think about getting Strawberry Milk.

[ETUDE HOUSE] Moon Crystal Power Gloss *Purple Holy Beam*

In my review about the LUCIDarling Fantastic Rouge Gloss I mentioned that I wanna try out a purple lippie or gloss. Unfortunately, the reviewed gloss in #7 Soft Mauve wasn't as purple as I hoped it would be. Because of that I was looking for another gloss and decided to get the Moon Crystal Power Gloss in #4 Purple Holy Beam from [ETUDE HOUSE].
This lip gloss is available in 5 heavenly colors:
- #1 Aqua Pink Soul
- #2 Ruby Moon Crystal
- #3 Coral Prism Power
- #4 Purple Holy Beam
- #5 Android Pinky Way

Description: Moon Crystal Power Lip Gloss features star-like pearl sparkles to accent your lips, for a mesmerizing evening look!
Lasting Polymer System + High-Smoothing System
The gloss comes in a translucent bottle with a purple twist-off lid and contains 5g. The tip is a lip brush and not a sponge or silicone applicator like some other glosses have.

#4 Purple Holy Beam is a very sheer purple with lots of pink and purple glitter. The color reminds me of the 7-Fruit Princess Gloss *Plum Princess* from [TONYMOLY] just that this one here is much more sparkling.
The consistency is a bit thick and sticky but not too much. The gloss last longer on my lips than some other glosses I tried out. The slightly sweet scent is also nice!

The Moon Crystal Power Gloss *Purple Holy Beam* compared with the LUCIDarling Fantastic Rouge Gloss *Soft Mauve*:

Price: around 6,50,- €/ US$8.50 
Bought at: eBay (  
What I love: 
The purple color is quite nice!
What I don’t like:  
There is nothing I dislike yet.

Will I buy this again? Maybe another color!

[ETUDE HOUSE] LOVELY COOKIE BLUSHER *Pink Cookie & Apricot Pudding*

A blush/ rouge belongs to every make-up! I'm one of those people who doesn't like too much color on the cheeks, though. Therefore, I'm happy that [ETUDE HOUSE] got different powder blushers to choose from, some bright shades and some darker ones. I got two (2) colors from their LOVELY COOKIE BLUSHER line: #1 Pink Cookie and the new 2012 color #5 Apricot Pudding.

#1 Pink Cookie:
Description: It completes fresh and shiny cheeks with a synergy effect between Bouncy Vivid Color and Shiny Pearl's Feeling. It helps to maintain makeup for a long time with superior adhesion of Satin Type's color powders.

The round plastic container has a translucent lid. The bottom part is pink, a bit darker than the actually powder blush is. The container contains 8.5g and a cushion puff with a pink ribbon on.
#1 Pink Cookie is the brightes pink of the older LOVELY COOKIE BLUSHER line. It's a nice baby pink without any shimmer. I apply the powder blush with the cushion puff, 1~2 layers are already enough for me.
I like the color and the puff is also ok. I have no problems with applying the blush to my cheeks.
If you like a darker pink shade you can try out #2 Rose Cookie or #2 Strawberry Chou and #3 Raspberry Tart from the new line.

#5 Apricot Pudding:
Description: Various beautiful and bright colors lasts for long time on your cheeks with its sebum control powder and coating pigment.

The design of the new colors is almost the same as from the older ones: a translucent lid and the bottom part is in a similar color as the powder blush. It also contains a cushion puff with a pink ribbon. 8.5g are inside the container!
#5 Apricot Pudding is a light pastel orange without shimmer. It is the first time for me using a orange blush but I like it. It gives me a more natural look than a pink blush does.
I apply 2~3 layers with the cushion puff.
If you also like orange powder blushers but prefer a darker shade than you can try out #3 Orange Cookie from the old line or #4 Carrot Cheesecake from the new 2012 line.

I wrote #1 Pink Cutey by mistake but it's Pink Cookie.

Price: around 7,- €/ US$9
Bought at: eBay (rubyruby76 & zinopark)  

What I love: 
There is nothing I really love but the colors are nice.

What I don’t like:  
Nothing yet!

Will I buy this again? Another color maybe like Strawberry Mousse or Sugar Pink.
