REVIEW: ETUDE HOUSE BABY CHOUX BASE BERRY

DISCLAIMER:  I was given this face base at the etude house philippines secret recipe launch at tous les jours as part of the press kit.  i was not paid by etude house philippines to review this product.
Soon as i saw this at the launch it really did look to me like icing or whipped cream!  and smells like some sort of berry whipped cream.
it applies like mousse and feels so soft!
and it gives a very soft satiny finish
on a lazy day i would actually go out just wearing this!
but it's kinda reflective
it's a face base, so at the demo they applied bb cream on top of the face base.  i apply foundation on top of the face base with very little spf.
i'm usually not into ANOTHER step in makeup.  i'm usually straightforward bb cream after moisturizer.  but for this lovely thing, i would actually apply this before my foundation!  the lovely soft and subtle scent though, doesn't last long on the face but it does on the brush hehehe.
LIKES:

  • this is actually already available in stores! when i saw this i was at the eastwood branch! but unfortunately i was in a hurry and was not able to ask how much it is per pot
  • the scent, the scent, the scent!
  • made applying foundation very smooth and blending was made more efficient
  • pore coverage is almost perfect!
  • does not cake up, crack or oxidize the foundation i used
  • keeps me a tad more oil free throughout the day
  • has spf of at least 25 and pa of ++
  • almost evened out my skin tone
  • made my foundation last longer
  • does not feel heavy even under long wearing foundation
  • did not break me out, give me zits or new black/ white heads
  • thanks to the comment below, i found out that this is PhP628 on the etude house website price shown here
DISLIKES:
  • glass tub if i drop this i'll break or chip of the glass
  • no spatula
  • reflective on flash photography
RECOMMENDATIONS:
I recommend this to women who do not wear foundation but want some coverage, make their faces look smoother and look a little air brushed but not too made up.  then if you want to finish up the look then apply foundation or bb cream then set with powder.
the added bonus is the packaging and how the product is dispensed, the mousse/icing texture.
there is another kind of this face base a mint one, mint undertones are supposed to counteract redness in ones face.
so whatchatink?

Thanks for this review! I'll check out the mint version you mentioned because I have a lot of red areas on my face. Hihi

I've been looking for a good primer now, I've read good reviews about benefit porefessional too. May na try ako dati from nature republic pero nag oily lang ako. :( Glad to know that the oil control and pore coverage of baby choux is good, I'm now excited to visit eh and try it. Thanks for answering my questions pala dati about Laneige Snow BB Soothing cushion Ms. Marge, I finally got one and I love it! :)

Pinkoolaid said...

wow! so far puro raves about this product. I'm gonna check it soon :)

Sarvin Sidhu said...

Patty said...

Hello, it's P628 according to their website :)

Marge said...

you should ^_^

Marge said...

thanks, it's weird that this time they put the newest product at the very back pages. ideally and usually they put the new products up front and on the first page.

Marge said...

yes, i'm not really into face bases except for laura mercier's but this one from etude house is quite impressive

Marge said...

i definitely agree ^_^

Marge said...

hi there! how are ya? thank you for your comments hehehe when a name pops up more than five times in comments or my giveaways, i tend to remember them.
as you know i'm not into expensive western brands unless it has some form of blessing or good review from either fuzkittie or pinkiecharm (and just from those two) so i would not know hehehe or care about benefit.
hay, ang snow bb cushion, hehehe sobrang napailalim na sa drawer ko yung snow crystal bb cream ko thanks to the bb cushion LOL. now, almost 2yrs later, naglabas na ulit ng bagong bb ang laneige, bonga sya, halos walang oilies! hahaha temptation nga naman, chos :P

Marge said...

ey, you can definitely try that then ^_^

Marge said...

honga ba't may peach pang nalalaman LOL, eh ito nga yung mukhang peach hehehe

Shimmerjjang said...

hahahaha!! di ko nga rin alam difference. that's why i put "peachy pink" sa review ko dun sa berry. mukha na kasi syang peach haha.

Marge said...

true! pero medyo berry naman daw ang amoy LOL

Patty said...

Thats true! I had to search for the product in their website. Siguro kasi di pa available unh entire collection? Lalo na yung lipstick so they don't advertise it yet? You are so lucky to be part of the launch BTw! First dibs and all :)

Michelle said...

I've been hearing a lot of good reviews about Etude House! Thanks for sharing this! Awesome :)

Elizabeth Rosero said...

Jes Roque said...

I need to try these baby choux bases!

Marge said...

Marge said...

at walang spatulang kasama, phhhft, buti na lang marami na kong spatula from creams and such

Marge said...

awww thanks, yeh, nako confuse na nga ko kung anong uunahin ko baka magka break out ako ng bonga. buti na lang hiyang ko sa korean and japanese products LOL

Marge said...

thanks

Marge said...

ey thanks, oo kailailalim ng site hahaha, the only thing i can think of for a reason is, that not all the branches carry it yet so it's here, but you have to dig hahaha.
maybe when the collection is complete they'll move the secret recipe collection to the front of the site and brand them as hot items ^_^

Marge said...

yep, my thoughts exactly, sabi nila end of march the entire collection will be complete na.
awww, i always make time for the people behind etude house philippines, we kinda started out at the same time, eh coming to manila and me blogging about asian cosmetics ^_^

Serrah said...

Hi. Does this work well with oily-skinned people? Thanks! :)

Marge said...

Patty said...

Wow! Pangarap ko mainvite sa mga product launch nila
Someday :)

Marge said...

why not naman kung meron di ba? ;-)

εïз ღ ValerieDeoferio ღ εïз said...

ganda nang repackaging! ^_^ napasin ko ang EH nagrerepackage sila nang karamihan nang old products, and I think this is the "reincarnation" nang baby skin base XD maganda sana kung niretain nila yung pump type container nung baby skin base :D

Marge said...

yeah a reissue, since may bagong mga model siguro i know maybelline and mac do that as well. ^_^ panalo yung baby choux ;-)

makeupbybea said...

"look a little airbrushed" I'm kinda intrigued! sounds really a good product. Will definitely check this out once I have the time to go to EH. :) hehe

Marge said...

must be the dimethicones in the makeup base that reflects the light that makes it looks like i'm airbrushed.
good luck finding this at our etude house stores ^_^

makeupbybea said...

Why naman goodluck? sold out ba lagi? :)

Marge said...

yep, kung di sold out, la pang dating at di pa released ng customs. sa east wood since konti lang ang foot traffic kumpleto lagi sila ng stocks
