REVIEW :: Pink Cherry Blossom Perfume from ETUDE House

715

So from my recent ETUDE House haul I got the Pink Cherry Blossom Set. Came with their Play 101 pencils in very pretty colors, hand cream, all over spray and this Eau De Toilette. I really love sweet feminine perfumes and I thought this would be a nice one to try out. The set was inexpensive, and it came with so much that if I didn’t end up liking this I wouldn’t feel bad.

It has notes of Violet, Cherry, Cherry Blossom, Musk and is very very sweet.

First Impressions

When first sprayed out of the bottle this is VERY sweet. Almost sickeningly sweet. And a little goes a long way. One spritz was enough for me to get on my wrists and dab on my neck. Immediately the sweetness mellows out and you get a hint of musk. This exchange of notes right away is really very nice. It is a very candy sweet scent, but the way the notes are playing together it doesn’t feel juvenile (we all know this super sweet perfumes we had when we were 7) I wouldn’t say this is mature, but it  is very playful. The notes go really well together, it is very fresh, sweet and pleasant. And the little hint of musk makes it come together very nicely.

Long Wear Impressions

After wearing this for about 3 hours you have to reapply. This may because I live in a very humid environment, but it is something to consider. It doesn’t immediately dissipate but it is something you would want to reapply if you wanted to smell like this all day. The notes the longer you wear it get lighter and sweeter. You lose a lot of the musk, and get more violet the longer you wear. But it is still very playful, pleasant and nice.

Overall Impression

If you LOVE sweet perfumes this is definitely one to try! Its not an overpowering sweetness, but a very bright and playful sweetness, and the floral and musk in it make it very nice. It does go on very heavy at first, and it doesn’t stay on the body to long. But overall I think it is something very sweet, and special and would work well for most ages, especially if you like very sweet and floral perfumes. Plus the bottle is cute to boot!

Grade- B + (would have been an A if it had lasted longer)

My Favorite Face Primers

I love me some good base makeup. But since its so hot, sticky and humid in florida, all my makeup will melt off if I don’t have a good primer. Over the years I have tested out dozens and these are some old, and new favorites. I am only listing 3 but I have a couple more I really love as well. I choose which to use depending on the type of makeup I am wearing, to how fancy the event or place I am going is.

in no particular order

Face Blur from Etude House

primer01

This is my go to, especially on days I don’t wear a lot of makeup. Leaves a flawless finish (no pores OMG), has nice SPF, and more importantly helps my makeup last perfectly most of the day. However if it is STUPID humid outside I might not go for this one, but thats because it gives me 6 hours of wear on my makeup rather then 8, so its still pretty nice! Also inexpensive!!! ❤ love that

 

L’Or Pure Radiance Face Primer from Guerlain

primer02

It’s no secret Guerlain is one of my favorite brands for makeup and skincare. I could gush for days about all the things I love from them, but I will just gush about this for now. THIS PRIMER IS EVERYTHING. Like E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G! Its firming, minimizes pores, glides on smooth and makes my makeup look spectacular all day! It also gives a nice glow to my face. The only reason I don’t slather this all over myself everyday is the price tag. So I save this for when i am using more expensive makeup, or do a super full face of makeup. still so good!

Pro-Prime Light Optimizing Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 15 from Nars

primer03

I love this one because it is so good for everything. Nice SPF, gives me the illusion of not having huge pores, makes my makeup stay on nice and long, and has a nice lightweight finish.

Those are my favorites but I do have a few more. But I usually go with these! They all work extremely well, and I would recommend any one of them!
