Hi Korean-Beauty Lover!
This cute little baby is the new favorite of mine.. it's etude sweet recipe baby choux base!
what is choux anyway?
Choux pastry, or pâte à choux (pronounced: [pɑt a ʃu]), is a light pastry dough used to make profiteroles, croquembouches, éclairs, French crullers, beignets, St. Honoré cake, Indonesian kue sus, and gougères. - Wikipedia
no doubt, etude named it "choux" because of the texture.. so light, so soft, so fluffy and smells so good! if anyone know what perfume smell like etude's sweet recipe baby choux base 02, please let me know!
this frosted glass jar seems like a jar of jam.. so pretty ~
i bought mine in Seoul, that's why it has a price tag in hanggeul ..
what it claimed, how to use and the cautions.. no ingredients here.
etude provided this baby with a mini plastic spoon, for anyone who refuse to dip their finger inside.
very light, soft, fluffy and smells good .. like raspberry and strawberry, very very yummy.
(so sorry for the repeated description, i've just sooo in love with it!)
swatch on my hand
lightly spreaded.. can you see the difference?
it gaves a natural glow, not really change my skintone, just glowy and brighten.
as a base, it's also help to make my big pores less visible. Since i doesnt like to be fully covered by my base/foundation, i only use 1 spoon and get a medium coverage by that. And perhaps thats why i doesnt get the whitening effect, hehe ..
What to love about it?
cute packaging - no doubt!
SPF 25 PA ++ (makes it can be work as tinted sunscreen too)
smells so yummy! wouldn't disturb you~
makes my face glow instantly~
has a slight oil control
it's not a limited edition product, yay!
What to dislike?
sometimes it's not very travel friendly
it does cause me breakout
shade available :
01 mint choux - to hide redness
02 berry choux - for brightening purpose
03 peach choux - for brightening purpose, but for darker skintone
I got lots of redness on my face, but the mint choux one seems so hard to blend with my skintone.. makes me looks so pale. So i decided to get berry first :D
ps. SPF 25 PA++ doesnt really help if you're stay outdoor all day long. And dont forget to reapply if you use it as tinted sunscreen!
