Product Review: Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher #5 Apricot Pudding

Hello everyone! This is my first full review on a blush on this blog. Which is weird, because I've been buying mostly blushes these days. I go into these tangents where I will buy many different kinds of a certain makeup item. It's blush now, and I have a feeling it's going to be mascara next. But, I will try to post reviews on other things, too. So you you guys won't get bored. ;) But let's get onto the review!

 As always, Etude House's packaging is super cute. I don't know what it is, but it makes me want to buy everything.

 The blush comes with this little puff that's really adorable. But the problem is, it doesn't pick up a lot of product and it takes a while to build any color on my cheeks. There's always something that grosses me out about sponges or puffs that sit on top of the product. I have oily skin and just the thought of oil collecting on the sponge and then sitting on the blush makes me cringe. Needless to say, I will not be using the puff.

This color looked soo pretty online! But in real life, it's nothing like it. The color looks faded and drab. I want to put blush on my cheeks so I won't look dull and drab.
Here's the swatch. As you can see, it's barely there! Not good at all. I love Etude House, but this is a terrible blush. The lasting power is crap because you can barely see it in the first place.

It does get more pigmented as you use it, but it's still not very good. I feel like this blush does nothing for me or my skin. Such a disappointment. :(


-Not a pretty color
-Not pigmented
-Doesn't last long

Overall, do not waste your money on this. Maybe it's just this particular blush or maybe it's the shade, I don't know. But it's just bad. This isn't necessarily going to steer my away from Etude House or their blushes, but it's just that this one is crap. Can't say anything else about it. Sorry Etude House!

What do you guys think of negative reviews? I try to be as honest as I can. 


  1. It's sad it did not come out so well... one of the main point to why peoples search online before buying a product if for the honest reviews. So I don't think there is anything wrong with it, even though a lot of product I am reviewing is sponsored. I do say negatives too, but there are always some positives that we can mention around it and what don't work for us, don't mean won't work for other =)

    1. I totally agree. This might work wonders on someone else, but it wasn't great for me. I always appreciate honest reviews, whether their sponsored or not. ;D

  2. Amazing post! :)
