Etude House Play 101 Contour Stick (01)
This stick is in the shade 01. The lightest of them all. It'll go well with my super light foundation, I guess (Cushions and foundations only come in two shades here, or at least places like Olive Young only stock two shades. They're either light or light...you get my drift. Koreans love to wear make up that's too light, to give them that pale look, personally I think that it's way too light for me, but I have no other options apart from spending a fortune, getting it shipped over.
The colours come in one stick, which is nothing new as a lot of brands do this now. It's nice being able to purchase the colours as a package rather than separately. There doesn't seem to be a lot of product though, the sticks are really thin and look like they would be used up pretty quickly.
Here's the swatch test. The highlighter is super white. Yikes! It's definitely much, much, much lighter than my skin tone. These sticks should be great on Asian skin as they are their 1st market. But, I have much darker skin than most Korean's so it could be way too light. I'd rather have a natural contour, than an over dramatic one.
So, to use, apply it how you would normally contour, or follow the Etude House guide:
Use a beauty brush, or a blender to blend it in. I'm a novice at contouring, so I guess this is a neat test to see if it's an easy product to work with. Please don't laugh, and if you have tips, please shoot them my way!!!!
Here I am outside, trying so hard not to laugh. I don't usually ask my fiancé to take my photos, but the lighting was pretty good, and the selfie mode on my phone really sucks!
You can't really see the contour in this picture, but I thought it looked good at the time.
This was the full blown laugh. It's not really fair when you have a fiancé making jokes and stuff. Not taking things seriously, obviously.
So, as a first time contourer, this product was OK. Just OK because the colour didn't really show up well on my skin. Probably because I didn't put enough colour on my face, as I was too scared of looking like a clown. It's not bad for a first timer, it's easy to use as there are instructions on the back of the box. For 8000W (£5.50), it wasn't bad, however there really isn't a lot of product in the stick! If you use every day, it wouldn't last long!
