Etude House Miss Tangerine Cream Choux Blusher & Sweet Shower Lips

Etude House recently released a tangerine-themed makeup collection which features quite an extensive array of products. Since orange makeup is exactly the opposite of what I like I only ordered a few pieces that looked wearable for me: The Miss Tangerine Cream Choux Blusher in a light pink color and 2 of the Miss Tangerine Sweet Shower Lips in colors that looked like a pearly peach and a pearly sweet muted pink (they aren´t as you will see in the swatches below).
I really like the packaging of the Miss Tangerine collection as its quite bright and cheerful. The Miss Tangerine Sweet Shower Lips come in quite heavy metal swivel-up tubes (similar design to e.g. the Extra Silky Lipsticks from Cle de Peau) but please be careful not to twist out too much of the lipsticks as it doesn´t retract.

The price of 8500 Won (around US$7.80) isn´t bad but the lipstick only contains 2.2g which might be used up quickly with regular use. It´s lightly perfumed with a fresh citrus scent (tangerine I guess) and the color is sheer and offers a creamy, slightly glossy finish.

The texture is creamy and the lipstick is comfortable to wear however it´s not the most moisturizing formula and the color can look blotchy if I don´t use a lipbalm underneath.

I got the colors #1 Shiny Pink Shower and #5 Sweet Peach Shower.
#1 is a light bright bubblegum pink which is pretty for a fresh summer look but only when worn lightly as it can look a bit dull and uneven. Not the most sophisticated and elegant color in my opinion. 
#5 is totally not a soft peach, it´s a very bright orange shade so I only sampled it once on my arm but gave it as a gift to someone.

Overall a decent product but since 4 out of the 5 available colors are oranges it might be hard to pull this off depending on your skin-tone and personal taste.

Rating 3.5/5

The Miss Tangerine Cream Choux Blusher is available in 4 colors (orange, peach, pink, lavender), contains 12g and retails for 6000 Won (around US$5.50). It comes in a squeeze tube with a slanted applicator (what you are used to see on lipgloss tubes).

The blush is very thick and not very greasy or slick, on the contrary, it´s more like a dry cream.

The cream blush is quite pigmented so a little goes a long way. It blends nicely, even over a light layer of powder and looks evenly and natural on me. In order to blend this evenly one should be quick as the blush dries down quickly and then it lasts really well throughout the day.

This product is unscented and in my opinion absolutely worth its price. 

#3 Miss Berry is a sweet light pink giving this very nice slightly flushed cheek look. When blended into the skin it doesn´t look as light as it looks straight from the tube.

Overall this is a really great product, one of the best cream blushes I have tried so far..and very affordable, too.

I´d really like to try the lavender one and maybe the peachy one. 

Rating 5/5

I ordered all products along with some other items from etudegmark on Gmarket. Shipping was fast and all items were packed securely as always. I have to add that Etude House is now really stingy with their freebies. I got a purse organizer as I spent more than 50000 Won but there was no sample or other freebies like in the previous years. That´s a little disappointing but the amount of freebies one can get from Gmarket sellers has drastically dropped in general. Really a pity as many were quite generous with samples etc.

I wonder if korea is as stingey now in store?
It's a shame, I never got the experience the joy of recieving a load of freebies from gmarket! When i ordered 100euro (dont know the value in won) from etude house i got some free coffee!
Oooh i really want the orangey lipstick & blush, and I'm so curious about the lavender one!

I really like the blush...I did not even knew the Tangerine range had a blush!

Oh, gmarket cosmetic sellers have become really stingy...That often makes me go for ebay instead of gmarket for etude. Kind of shame, because they'll loose a direct customer like this...

I've ordered #1 Shiny Pink Shower from Gmarket :) Am a bit worried now though, now that I read in your review that it can look uneven. I usually wear lipstick quite lightly, so yeah LOL. But we'll see. The colour looks gorgeous on your swatch pics :)

Also, Gmarket shipping prices to Holland are extortionate. Yikes!

I hauled a bit from this collection too -- I got the same shade of cream blusher and the orangey sweet shower lips, as well as the lucidarling rouge and the nail polish trio. ;D
