[Review] Etude House - Play 101 Pencil

Hello Sweeties!
How did Christmas and New Year celebrations went for you? Mine were, surprisingly, really relaxing (▰˘◡˘▰)
Hope all of you will have a wonderful 2015 (づ。◕‿‿◕。)づ

Today i want to review some other Etude House play 101 pencil, i had already review two shades from this line some time ago, when they first came out (Here) and while i wanted to buy other colors tons and tons of times after using those two, i never actually got them till i went to Korea again (=∩_∩=)フ

At the beginning of November, Etude House released 10 new special colors in a limited edition made just for the holidays ♥‿♥
So now, you have 60 colors of this line of multifunctional pencils to choose from!

pics are a bit blurry sometimes, i'm sorry TT^TT it's been snowing all day, and i couldn't find much light to take good photos.

This pencil are multi functional and can be used for various parts of the face: eyebrows, eyeliners, lip colors, eyeshadows and even contouring and as a concealer, they are divided in four different textures:


I got three colors from their regular line and three colors from the special edition (✿◠‿◠)

For the regular line, the shades i got are number 7, number 16 and number 28.
Number 7 is a light beige with orange undertone, perfect to use a concealer, or as a base on the eyelids.
Number 16 is a really bright pink that can be used on lips, cheeks and eyelids.
Number 28 is  a shimmery pink with purple undertones, that can be used as a eyeshadow.

The boxes are the same color of the pencil and they have the list of ingredients and info on it, in both korean and english.

"This is a gel-type pencil that comes in vivid colors and various textures for easy and fun make up play."

The pencil itself are in very regular dark gray tube, with the end colored to match the actual color of the pencil.
The very end is the sharpened, which is really useful, since you will always have it with you when you need it (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

All the three colors are pretty vibrant and creamy, very easy to blend, just like the first two 101 pencil i got (▰˘◡˘▰)
I wasn't disappointed in the least with those too.
Number 7 does a great job in covering my dark circles, and also little blemishes i might have around my face.
while number 16 is the perfect shade for my lips, i've been searching for a light, but shiny, pink for a looong time now, and this one goes quite near to what i have in mind. ôヮô
I wasn't actually planning on buying number 28, but the sale lady came to me and swatched it on her hands, telling it was actually one of their bestsellers, and as soon as i saw how glittery and pretty it was, i was lost. it's perfect to create glittery and shiny looks on my eyes ≧◡≦

The most amazing thing of these pencil is their duration, once they settle they wont move from their place, so you have to be quick to blend them out! ( ́ ◕◞ε◟◕`)
they will last all day long, and are pretty much water resistant too! 
Aren't they just amazing?ヽ(^◇^*)/




Number 28 is really shimmery right? *:・゚*:・゚✧

I did a little test resistance~ 

This is after scrubbing with my finger for 5 minutes straight:

Only the 28 is the one who moved a bit, and even then, the glitters can still be seen.

After putting my hand under running water and scrubbing:

7 and 16 are still perfectly intact, and only some glitters from number 28 are still on my hand, pretty impressive right?

Now into the three special holiday colors! ヾ(@^▽^@)ノ

The packaging is always regular, but it's decorated with silver hearts and lights, really pretty ≧◡≦


and pencil, just like the regular line, have a sharpener at the end of the pencil, which is the same color as the pencil itself.

The ten new colors are all glittery, since they are designed especially for the holidays, and everyone should have a pretty shimmery makeup during christmas (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

Number 51 is a glittery white, perfect to use as a highlighter, or to accentuate aegyo sal.
Number 52 is a shimmery hot pink, wonderful for the eyes, and the create a 3D effect on your lips together with a pink lipstick.
Number 59 is a dark-ish brown with glitter in them, that looks amazing as a base eyeshadow.

I really adore them, i'm totally thinking of getting another color 52 before they get discontinued! 
It's the perfect pink, it looks amazing on the eyes, and the glitters make the eye stand out ≖‿≖

Number 51 is also the perfect highlighter, it settles down extremely well and doesn't ruin my base makeup on the long run, like many highlighters i tried tend to do.

And number 59 is the perfect brown, not too dark or too light, and with just the right shimmery to it. ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿ 

 Aren't they extremely pretty and shimmery?

After scrubbing my hand:

After splashing my hand with water and scrubbing:

love love love them, i just made a order and got others colors, and i still want to order more ◃┆◉◡◉┆▷
