Review: Etude House Baby Choux Base (#2 Berry Choux)


I already reviewed this product in a video I posted a few days ago, but I had more pics that I wanted to use, so I figured I'd put together a full post for all you non-video watchers :)

Etude House is one of those brands I often make fun of for one reason or another, but looking back I see I buy an awful lot of their stuff :x Skinfood and Etude House are kings of marketing in the Korean makeup world that's for sure... Anyway, this is another product from Etude House's Sweet Recipe Collection (if you want to sample some of the collection, pop on over to the giveaway).

The selling point of this product is its light, fluffy, whipped texture - like the cream in french pastries/chouxs~

A "Sweet" Etude House Giveaway


I've been meaning to get this giveaway up for friggin forever, so I am super excited to finally get it up!  I am a bit lukewarm on the quality of the products themselves, but the EH Sweet Recipe Collection has definitely been by far one of the most visually pleasing releases this year :)  So yeah, I thought it would be most fitting for a sweet toothed critter such as myself to do a dessert makeup themed giveaway.

And quick life update: I've been bouncing around trying to figure out how to pack all my stuff.  I am loathe to just abandon all my nail polish here but god knows TSA will arrest me for trying to wiggle through with 40 bottles of polish :P ahha I'll probably end leaving it all behind ^^ I can't believe I'll be leaving in 2 weeks! I probably sound like a broken record, but I'm still in a kind of awe that I'm really going. I'm so excited for everything that is to come!

Other Life Tidbits:
  • I am terrible at thinking on my feet when I'm asked unexpected questions. I tend to default to honesty (usually a good thing), but in some cases, it results in hurt feelings. Yesterday, I ate lunch with a few co-workers that I have worked with since the beginning. Since I am leaving next week, they invited me to lunch and we had a great time catching up and just reminiscing....I'll miss them a lot. But when I got back, another co-worker who I am not so close asked me "where everyone went for lunch" and stupid me could not think of a good answer, so I blurted out "we went out to eat." I feel bad that her feelings were hurt, but I'm also annoyed because it's not anybody's business who I eat lunch with, especially since this is my last week at the office and I was invited to lunch, I didn't organize it. *sigh* I suppose I should have invited her myself, but I confess I just wanted to hang out with the people I felt comfortable with. It's situations like this I see how socially awkward and selfish I am. *sigh* Gah, some things never change!
  • I can't believe that in a few weeks that I'll be in a different place doing something different, living a different life. Honestly, I just want to go now and feel like I am waiting impatiently for my life to just begin. It makes me happy and sad at the same time to feel this way. I'm so excited to be embarking on a new adventure, but I am saddened by how many years it took me to summon up the courage to do so. I wonder about the kind of person I'd be today if I'd been more courageous earlier.
