Etude House Sweet Recipe Baby Choux Base (Review,Swatches, Before and After Photos)
Price: Php 628.00
I got this Baby Choux Base from the Sweet Recipe Event of Etude House at Tous Les Jours last month. This was the least of my favorite during the launch. I am not a fan of makeup because of the bad experience I had with green and violet makeup base before. They made my face look so white as if it was floating. One of the worst makeup No-No's is having a floating or ghost like face. This happens when your face is lighter than the rest of your body. I had tons of floating face experience because I had a hard time finding the right shade for my NC35 skin tone. I am not fair and I am not even close to Morena. I am in the medium range and it is so hard finding the foundation, BB Cream or tinted moisturizer that suits my skin tone. Western Brands tends to have more pink undertones in their shades while Asian brands can go as white as paper. Thus, out of all the goodies Etude House gave me, I was not gung ho about this product at all. Then, I finally decided to give this a try. I admit that it was not love at first sight but love at first try.
The first thing I notice about this product is the packaging. The jar bottle is so dainty and girly that it looks perfect on the vanity table. Its jar is made out of sturdy glass.
The other shade is in #3 Peach which a tad bit lighter and paler than Berry.
|It has a very creamy air light consistency. Please note that it does not have an air whipped mousse texture. It blends very well on the skin because the consistency is not too thick.|
|My bare face|
My dark circles, as usual, are very conspicuous. I have red patches and and uneven skintone.
|Looks like I played with icing in this photo. Ohh, I think I applied too much of the makeup base.|
|After spreading the product, my face looks like a ghost. haha It is evident, however, that it evened out my skin tone and neutralized the redness of my face.|
|Then, I applied Revlon Nearly Naked in Medium Beige to match my true skin tone.|
The sad news: It leaves a slightly noticeable white cast on pictures when taken with flash.
