[ETUDEHOUSE] Aloha V-Line Slim Maker Sun Gold-Wood Brown

After a crazy long week and my GRE's on Tuesday, I was very happy to get a package in the mail! This was my order from Colorful Circle and you can find this product here. I wanted something that I could use to contour and highlight at the same time so I found this. I love Etude House products and this had such a cute design inside and out. It came in a bubble-wrap package and was shipped on time. It was also free shipping, which I always appreciate. It came with 2 Lioele samples, the Beyond the Solution BB cream and Shimmering Pearl Base.

The product itself came with a small brush and case. The brush is compact and easy to use. The bristles are relatively soft and it picks up the highlighter very well. The wood brown contouring color, however, is almost impossible to pick up. I tried it with my regular bronzing brush and its just as difficult. Even with my finger, it was difficult to get color. The sun gold color is super pigmented and glittery so use it with a light hand. On the other hand, the wood brown is sheer and barely goes on. I had to sweep 5 times to get any color or break some powder off but when it went on, there was barely a shadow. I will be experimenting more with it, but for now, its not working very well.
Here is what the 2 colors look like

  2. do you think it will be good if you blend them together so that the bronze will also get pigment?
