Etude House Sweet Eye Cupcake in #1 Banana & Chocolate, #4 Lavender & Grape and #5 Gray Brown & Smoky Black

The cute Sweet Eye Cupcake baked eyeshadow duos from Etude House caught my eye some weeks ago but the color I wanted most (#5) was not listed on Gmarket but when it was back in stock I ordered it together with 2 other colors.
I really love the cute little tin cases the shadows are housed in. The shadows are not scented and feature the typical slightly hard baked shadow texture. The finish is pearly or metallic and blending quality and color pay-off are good though there could be even a bit more pigment in the darker colors in my opinion.

On me these shadows last very well without fading or creasing worn on top of Lunasol Eyelid Base and they don´t irritate my eyes. Not sure about the performance in hot or humid climates and/or oily eyelids.

The color duos are nicely matched however I personally need an additional highlighter for duo #5.

#1 Banana & Chocolate is a safe neutral brown/yellow ivory combo

#4 Lavender & Grape is a really pretty lavender/purple duo, I especially like the metallic quality of the lighter colors which is just gorgeous!

#5 Gray Brown & Smoky Black is a lustrous taupe/deep charcoal combination, definitely my favorite and a great buy for cool-toned ladies.

The Sweet Eye Cupcake eyeshadows are not expensive (somewhere around US$7 perhaps?) and can be purchased from etudegmark on Gmarket or you can check ebay, I have seen them there for a few $$ more.

Rating 4/5

I have the third one, best value for my money because I find highlighter shades boring, they are all the same. I love this one I have :)
