Office Makeup Theme Last Week: Cream Eyeshadows

I have amassed a lot of pencil and cream eyeshadows since I started learning to hoard makeup. Cream eyeshadows can be a little challenging to use for someone like me who’s not really good at it although I think it’s a hit or miss. Some are easy and some are just plain pain in the ass. Etude House’s Play 101 Pencil is just that. Some have good color pay-off and some feels like literally tearing your eyelids apart as you use them. But I think it comes in groups – those glittery colors is MAJOR in terms of difficulty of usage, the creamy ones are so-so and the glossy once are HALF MAJOR difficult since, once you applied wrong it can go all-over the place.

This are the Play 101 looks I have done last week using the Play 101 pencils and cream eyeshadows:

March 21, 2017: Base – Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Blooming Fit
Eyes (base) – Etude House Play 101 Pencil #28
Lower Lid – Etude House Play 101 Pencil #40
Mascara – Etude House Curl Fix Mascara (Brown)
Cheeks – Etude House Play 101 Blending Pencil 16 and 18 (blended together)
Lips (liner) – Etude House Soft Touch Auto Lip Liner
Lipstick – Etude House My Little Nut

March 22, 2017: Eyes (base) – H&M cream shadow in Champer
Lower lid – Etude House Play 101 Pencil #70
Eyeliner – Etude House Play 101 Pencil 34; just to add a pop of color
Gel liner – Etude House Brush Liner in Brown
Cheeks – Etude House Play 101 Stick 13 and 14 (blend)
Lips – changed the lip liner to Urban Decay Lip Liner in Big Bang because the Etude House Play 101 Pencil 23 got squished while applying and a bit hard to line
Lip Tint – Innisfree

 

March 23, 2017: Base – Laneige BB Cushion
Eyes – Etude House Play 101 Pencil and Etude House Play 101 Blending Pencil
Cheeks – Etude House Berry Sweet Cream Blusher
Eyebrows – Tarte Cream Brow
Lipstick – 3ce in shade 908 (I so want to like this lipstick, I really do but I just cant seem to do it. Hard to apply, removes easily and leaves dry patches of color on the lips I just had to remove it upon reaching the office because it looks hideous)

March 24, 2017: Eyes – Etude House Bling Me Eyes 1, 8 and 11
Etude House Play 101 Blending Pencil in #13
Blush – Etude House Color Lips Fit – it’s a product for the lips but I end up making it a blushed because I love the natural finish. Very close to how red my cheeks are post-workout 😁
Lips – TheFaceShop x Disney Water Tint – best lip tint Ive had so far in terms of color pay off and moisturizing

 

Low down – Cream eyeshadows are fun to play with but can be very tricky to use. Also, I am in total surrender now and I don’t think I’ll be using the Play 101 Pencils in the near future. My lids are still nursing the torture 😛
