Hello, beauties! You have no idea how excited I am to share this haul. As some of you may know, Korean makeup brand Etude House released a new collection called Sweet Recipe. It has to be the most adorable collection I've ever seen. Everything is reminiscent of candy and sweets. I was going to wait and order from the MAC Sweet Temptations collection but then I said "Nah, this is much better!" The nail polishes from this collection (the ones shaped like ice cream cones) are very popular too. I've seen them all over Instagram. I ordered one nail polish and the Chocolate Eyes eyeshadow trio from a different seller so I don't have them with me yet. Oh, yes, I got these from eBay. The seller was excellent and sent me a bunch of free samples. 22 days went by from the moment I ordered these until they arrived. I think that's fine considering the shipping was free and it traveled from Korea all the way to the Caribbean. 

01. Chocolate Highlighter ($15): This thing is adorable, it looks like an edible bar of white chocolate. Sadly, the packaging is made of really flimsy cardboard. It's almost paper thin. I dented it while trying to open it for the first time. Plus, the ends are sealed with a tape that rips off the printed design when you try to take them off :(

02. Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Color in Strawberry Chiffon Cake ($9): I love creamy lip/cheek products so I had to get one of these. It's really creamy and sheer, it reminds me of the MUA Cream Blushers. It has a really sweet scent but it's not overpowering. You'll only notice it if you put your nose in it. My boyfriend did, he said it smells like peach.

03. Candy Stick Tinted Gloss in Strawberry Candy ($7): A lip balm shaped like a candy cane, can you just imagine popping this out in public and reapplying? Out of all the products, this one is the most novelty-like. It doesn't have very much product and the twist-up mechanism feels cheap (mine broke already). It doesn't taste too nice either.

04. Baby Choux Base in Mint ($14): The Baby Choux Bases are whipped facial primers that come in three colors (Mint, Berry, and Peach). I got the Mint one for redness. I haven't used this product yet but the packaging is lovely! The bottle is frosted glass so it feels heavy and sturdy. It also comes with a spatula to scoop out product.

05. It's Skin Macaron Lip Balm in Strawberry ($9): This isn't from Etude but I also picked it up because it's adorable! I have enough lip balms to last me a lifetime now. It's quite fragrant and it actually reminds me of what Bourjois Healthy Mix products smell like.

06. Sweet Recipe Chocolate Smudge Liner in Dark Chocolate ($8): I had been looking for a brown cream liner for a while and now I have one shaped like a chocolate truffle! Haven't used this one yet either but I don't even want to dip my brush in it! It's like it's too cute to ruin.

Sorry if this post was gushy! Everything is just so adorable! Have you ordered any Etude Sweet Recipe products? Do you often order beauty items off eBay? Have a nice weekend!

  8. If this isn't cute, I don't know what is! I was sort of into the all-over color in Strawberry Chiffon Cake, but I'm not really into stuff "peachy" scented haha! There's one Etude house boutique in Hong Kong I think, so I'll have to go scope them out soon (they arrived fairly recently!) - MAC Baking Beauties received a range of excellent to horrible reviews from both Karen of MBB and Christine on Temptalia. The Lavender Whip lipstick is nothing like the lavender of my dreams.. Hmph.

    1. Maybe each color has a different scent. I was also glad I skipped on Baking Beauties because after seeing all the reviews/swatches on the blogs you mentioned, I wasn't too impressed. Especially with the face powders, they were so "meh" :/

  9. Ah these are seriously TOO CUTE! I'm going to look on eBay and see if I can find some good deals because these things are so adorable! I love the way the highlighter is packaged, even if it's not too great of quality :/ And the macaron lip balm is ADORABLE!!

  11. You should get the orange cupcake all over color toooo!! I have it and it gives me such a lovely warm flush. Too bad it doesn't feel nice on the lips. I'm pondering on getting the red one. And I looove the choux base!

  24. Ahh these look & sound so yummy! I haven't bought any beauty products off of ebay in a while... when I do it's usually cheap nail art or useless beauty things haha but I used to order the cheaper versions of the coastal scents palettes. I probably should try products from this brand! xx

  25. what a very lovely haul! :D
    I'm also a fan of Etude and I have bought the Cupcake All Over Color in PK002 as soon as it was released and the one I got had a peach color packaging and then I see yours and it's.. pink. This is weird. Why is mine in peach. lol I also bought the Candy Stick in the same color and mine is already broken too! OTL A lot of people are complaining about the packaging of the highlighter and eyeshadow in this collection because it's just cardbord. -_- I will try the baby choux base in berry soon since I've heard a lot of good reviews about it. I hope it won't disappoint me. Followed you btw! :)

    ps.
    sorry for the long comment. :P

  27. Wahhhhhhh this collection has had me drooling since I heard of its release!! Everything is so freaking cute I just really can't get over it... maybe I'll crack one of these days; my willpower for cosmetics (as you know) is weak already but then when you add cuteness into the mix I basically have no willpower at all =__=;

  28. Once the Korean fever begins, it's hard to make it stop! LOL I'm basically in love with every little thing I've ever gotten from Etude House so I can only hope you are too. I saw this collection a while ago and was very tempted but I needed (wanted!) some other things first so this was moved down the list for a while hehe Enjoy it all Coco xx

    1. It was definitely too pricey compared to the rest! Sadly the chocolate bar products from this collection are so hyped up on ebay. Some sellers are listing them for $25+

    1. I had never heard of them so thank you for pointing me in that direction :) Although I just checked them out and their shipping to the US is quite expensive. The savings on the products would then be cancelled by the shipping costs I guess.
