Etude House "Play 101 Pencil" + "Snowy Dessert Play 101 Pencil" part 2

Etude House "Play 101 Pencil" + "Snowy Dessert Play 101 Pencil" part 2


by Violetta

We promised to make a part 2 of the Etude House "Play 101 Pencils" and here it is! As if that´s not enough, we also have 2 pencils of the new limited edition from Etude House "Snowy Dessert Play 101 Pencil" for you! He He He

Here is the link for our part 1of the "Play 101 Pencil", if you haven´t seen it. ;-)

Since I have thw beige ones and two dark brown ones, I think a little comparission is very good for those of you who are thinking about which one could be the best colour for you and your use.

All 4 pencils have a consistence which is very equal and perfect for eye make-up. It is not to wet or to dry, just a good eye make-up consistence, but I would absolutelly not use it for my lits or cheaks, because therefore it must be more creamy. The snowy dessert pencils are shimmery ones, while the two "normal" ones are mat. They all stay very long, which is because they´re not to creamy or wet. They all stay incredibly long on the skin, whichb is very awesome. :D
Since my sister and me bought two of the Etude House special sets from the "Snowy Dessert" line on the Etude House global store, we have #73 and #75 of them. I saw that they changed the pencil colours and the pudding tint colours in this set, but I bought it with the colours I just said.
 We´ll upload a review about the whole set soon. :-)

Then I have two colours of the normal Etude House "Play 101 Pencil", which are #07 and #50.


PRICE: $7.80


First I want to talk about the normal "Play 101 Pencil":

#07 is a mat, very light beige colour. It thought that I can use it for my lower water line (because white is often to heavy and unnatural) and for my aegyo sal, but in addition to that, I find out that I also can use it for concealing pimples and dark areas (like dark circles). It works very good, because it has a consistence which is perfect for eye make-up, so it is not to wet and you can blend it very well. For me it actually matches my skintone very well, so this pen is one of my favourite ones when it comes to the multifunktional use of these pencils.

#50 is a mat, very dark brown colour. I use it as an eyeliner. I think this could be the darkest brown shade they have, anyway it was the darkest brown shade they had when I ordered it on the etude house global store. This is a very beautifull colour if you don´t want a heavy shade like black, which could really give your face a hard expression. Don´t misunderstand me, black is also a very nice shade for eye make-up, but if you want a softer/smother touch up, this brwn shad eis very good for you. This pencil is also good for eyebrows, but the colour is really intensive so be carefull if you have never used an eyebrow pencil before. ;-) 

For my eyebrows I preffer the Etude House "Look at my Eyes Cafe" eye shadow #BR402 Cafe Mocha (I´ll upload a review about this eye shadow only soon, but here is our general review about  the "Look at my Eyes Cafe and Jewel"  )

Next are the "Snowy Dessert Play 101 Pencil":

#73 is a shimmery, very beige colour. It´s shimmery pigments are more colder shaded, so it´s more like white silvery shimmery, but still beige. (I don´t know if you can imagin the shade more now, but if you can see the product right in front of you, you´ll know what I mean. If you don´t understand me, just look at the pictures ;-) )
It is a bit lighter than the #07 of the "normal" pencils. This one works very good as eye shadow and for the aegyo sal, but you can use it also for your lower water line. 

#75 is a shimmery, very dark brown colour. It is a little bit lighter as the #50 of the "normal" ones and it has golden/bronze shimmery pigments in it. Because of that the colour looks a bit warmer than #73. If you want a very modestly eye liner, which is not heavy and you only want to give your eyes just a little accent, this one is perfect for you. You can also use it for your brows. The shimmery pigments are so modestly, that you don´t see them when you use them for your brows and it is not that heavy as the #50 from the "normal" pencils.
You can also use #75 as eye shadow, but I think it´s better in use for other stuff.

MY CONCLUSION for those of you who are thinking about whiich colour they should choose I have a little tip. If you´re wearing glasses the whole day, then the mat ones are the better choose for you, because shimmery pigments behind the glass makes you eyes smaller (it´s the same with eye shadow). If you are not wearing glasses, then I would choose the shiny ones, because then they´re making your eyes bigger, because of the light reflection (that´s the opposite to wearing glasses). 

Between the beige ones: If you want something to also cover up your dark circles, then choose #7, because then a not shimmery one is better for hyding. ;-) The aegyo sal lokks a bit better with #73, plus you can use it as eye shadow.

Between the dark brown ones: The shimmery #75 is not as intensive pigmented as the mat #50, so if you want a clearer eye line, then choose #50. If you want one which you could also use as eye brow pencil and eye shadow, then choose #75.

All pencils are really great to use and you can use them for manny different things. In the end I think you are really happy with the pencils, regardingless which one you choose (and I am speaking of the whole colour systeme of the pencils)
