[Review] Etude House Look At My Eyes (1608) Melancholy Budapest Eyeshadow / 에뛰드 룩 앳 마이 아이즈 멜랑꼴리 부다페스트

Saturday, November 19, 2016

Hello, dreamers! Although I love Etude I haven't bought any eyeshadows from them in quite a while since they simply didn't have anything new that caught my interest - until now. I was so happy to see that they have a brand new line of eyeshadows. The new line is called Melancholy Budapest and they are also part of Look At My Eyes (1608), Look At My Eyes Jewel (1608) and Look At My Eyes Café (1608).


This line includes pretty much all of my favorite eyeshadow colors - Matte Taupes, Warm Shimmers, Pastels and Smokey Greys/Blacks! Now that I think about it I kind of regret that I didn't get all of them since they're all really beautiful. I literally already have so many eyeshadows that I barely use so I just picked a few of them. For now. Hehe. The shades I got are #2 PK010, #3 PP510, #14 BK803 (Jewel), #15 PP505 (Café), #16 BK804 (Café), #18 BK807. Let's take a look!

I actually don't use pink eyeshadows that much but this one was just too gorgeous. It's a shimmering bubblegum pink. It looks really beautiful together with the PP510.

This is a really beautiful frosty purple with pink undertones.

#14 BK803 (Jewel)

This is probably my favourite eyeshadow out of the ones I got this time. I love all of the shades I got but this one is definitely the most unique and beautiful. It's basically a dark grey with lots of fine multicoloured/holographic glitter in it. The glitter looks really chunky in the pan but it's slightly finer when applied. It looks like a sky full of stars.

#15 PP505 (Café)

This is a gorgeous matte burgundy with teeny tiny hints of glitter in it.

#16 BK804 (Café)

I really love a good taupe eyeshadow. Not only for my eyes, but for shading the rest of my face as well. Most products that are specifically made for contouring are usually very orange and those just don't do it for me, so I always go with taupe eyeshadows for my shading instead. It looks a bit purple in this picture but it's actually just a neutral taupe. Look at the swatches below to see what it really looks like when applied. I already have so many taupes similar to this one but I literally can't have too many because, like I said, I always use this kind of shade for shading and contouring my eyes and face no matter what kind of look I'm going for.

#18 BK807

Ugh, I just realised how horrible this pan looks. Sorry about that. I messed it up quite a bit when I was about to move it to my Etude House Eyeshadow palette before I realised that I wanted to take photos. Anyway, this was actually the first eyeshadow I picked out of the ones I got. I really needed a good grey eyeshadow and I thought that this was perfect for me. It has a slightly purple undertone and very small pink/purple glitter particles. Absolutely beautiful and perfect for smoky makeup.

One thing that all of these eyeshadows have in common is that all of them are very pigmented and last for a really long time. At last but not least they are also dirt cheap. The Normal Look at My Eyes and Café Eyeshadows are ₩3,500 and the Jewel Eyeshadows are ₩5,500.

Do you like these eyeshadows? Let me know if you want me to review the rest of the eyeshadows of this line too. And feel free to check out the last review I did on the Etude House eyeshadows here.
Thank you so much for reading and bye for now.
