BEAM ME UP, Scotty! ETUDE HOUSE NYMPH AURA VOLUMER VS TONY MOLY GODDESS AURA BEAM

it's kinda a cosmetics shopping ban, LOL so it's time to whip out the samples! :P
ever since this picture came out:
well, i wasn't that interested. i found the picture of dara above too SHINee shimmery, i feel like handing her an oil blotting film.  OF COURSE NO PRODUCT should, could, and would make you look like that.  it's all smoke and mirrors and photoshop!
but let's sample this out, shall we? hehehe pun intended.
last week i sorta reviewed the tony moly goddess aura beam here, so this week i'll review the nymph aura.
oooohhh already i like this product, it's soooo not like the lip gloss the goddess aura beam is. this nymph aura is like a juiced up baviphat island girl bb primer fix (reviewed here).
i'm so loving the lilac-y/lavender iridescent sheen this nymph aura has
and again side by side with the lip gloss este the aura beam  on the right and the nymph aura on the left
blended out, they both give you a sheen but the nymph aura volumer gives you the iridescence.

a brightening iridescent sheen
the lip gloss
but you see the pink sparklies
and blended out, you get a nice sheen
but can be confused with the oilies on a hot humid day

Aspect Etude House Tony Moly
Texture cream to powder-likekinda like lip gloss
Sheenpearly purply iridescence oily the pink sparlies disappears when blended
Finisha brightening glowa sheen when correctly and strategically applied
Lasting Power2-3 hours4-6 hours
Oil Controlnonenone
Scentquite strong baby powder scent, can put off someone who dislikes strong scentsmilder flowery kind of scent
Coveragedidn't make my pores more visible same it didn't make my pores more visible
Break Outnonenone
Packaginghas pump dispenser, and a smaller upside down tube but easy to controlthat upside down tube that's kinda difficult to control
i wore the aura beam and blended out with the bb cream here below
and below i wore the nymph aura volumer on the right side of my face only on top of my bb cream of the week from skin79, yep the top of the right cheek has that sheen, me likey!
conclusion:
I was told that the (EH) nymph aura volumer was sticky and well, not comfy to wear, i found that to be true of the (TM) goddess aura beam instead.  like i said, lip gloss on the top of your cheeks, the bridge of your nose and maybe on your cupid's bow.
some of you will think that my vote will be for TM as it's normally is, but today, it's with EH, i didn't experience the sticky, icky feeling some people may have experienced using the EH nymphy aura volumer.  i also preferred the iridescent pearly purply sheen it gives over the oily glow the goddess aura would tend to give if you don't subdue it with powder.
neither of them caked up my foundation or bb cream.  and neither of them oxidized my face the days i wore them.
Do i recommend?
i think either products are superfluous if you already have loads of foundations and bb creams that give that certain glow, ahem, photoready! foundations or bb creams that give you a pearly brightening effect, ahem snow crystal bb and foundation.  so if you already have foundations/bb creams and the mac mineralize skin finish, these products from eh and tm are no longer necessary.  if you also have blushes with golden sheens to them these items are not necessary either.  and if you already have the benefit high beam or any of the like, then you can skip these.
however, if all you own are matte foundations and bb creams then maybe a small tube of either of these aura products can and will give you that seen from the moon at night sort of glow that's super in nowadays!
of the two, regardless of skin shade you have, i would recommend the eh nymph aura volumer, just don't wear it too much like the sandara picture above, that's just not normal.  

so whatchatink?

Love your blog entry's title hahaha XDDD 


Hmm. I tried the Nymph Aura Volumer sa shop dati, kinda sticky so di ko pa binubuksan yung sample ko hahaha. Pero after your review, I will give it a try when I wear makeup one of these days.  Nagulat ako na cream to powder-like sya eh.

bakit yung EH nymph aura volumer ko parang lip gloss din? parang hindi katulad nung sayo, mas katulad pa sha nung tony moly mo. as in, sticky na may shimmers shimmers lang. :D
