I went again with my sister to the pink explosion of a store that is Etude House (Ok, I stayed outside and only went in to pay for her stuff). She wanted to buy a new lip gloss and ended up getting this Dear Darling Roll Roll Gloss for P197.75. My sister likes their gloss because apparently, it gives that distinct shine without changing the color of your lips too much (which is precisely what lip gloss is supposed to do).
She also bought this mascara with a really funky name Oh~m’Eye Lash Double Up Volume for P238. It’s so Korean, it even comes with the “~” in the name. Aside from the fact that it’s Korean, my sister also has a bias for their mascara mainly because she claims that their brushes last longer compared to other similarly priced brands.
Until now, I can’t believe how affordable Etude House products are. I used to handle a cosmetics brand (I work in advertising) so I’m aware of how much more expensive other brands can be.
I guess beauty doesn’t always need to come at such a high price.
