Etude House Wonder Fun Park Candy Highlighter Review


If I were to name a product I fell in love with the moment I saw the new wonder fun park collection - it would be the rainbow highlighter. But it's also came to the point where I fell right into a big disappointment after getting my hands on this product -.- Etude House what happened :( !! Alot of bloggers were saying this stuff is literally useless, I can vouch for them too!

What it is:
The highlighter makes the face look bright as the candy sweet sugar pearl naturally blends.

How to apply:
Take an adequate amount with the brush and lightly touch the areas you want to brighten such as nose bridge, skin under the eyes, cheekbones, and forehead in a sweeping motion.

Mica (CI77019),Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer,Diisostearyl Malate,Silica,Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate,Zinc Stearate,Butylene Glycol,Synthetic Fluorphlogopite,Titanium Dioxide (CI77891),Neopentyl Glycol Diethylhexanoate,Methicone,Triethylhexanoin,Polyglyceryl-2 Triisostearate,Magnesium Aluminum Silicate,Ethylhexylglycerin,Phenoxyethanol,Lauroyl Lysine,Polyhydroxystearic Acid,Manganese Violet,Glyceryl Caprylate,Ultramarines (CI77007),1,2-Hexanediol,Iron Oxides (CI77492),Chromium Oxide Greens (CI 77288),Yellow 5 Lake (CI19140),Blue 1 Lake (CI42090),Red 6(CI15850),Triethoxycaprylylsilane

Let's take 'A' minute to appreciate the pretty rainbow, since all you can do is look and admire it for the rest of the time as it's not even usable.

Pretty but doesn't works. Not even worth $10 imo.

Just in case you were hoping to use it as an eye shadow, don't even think about it. Its really sheer and you can barely see a tint trust me. When reading through the bad reviews, I was thinking on how much I loved the secret beam highlighter, and just how bad could it be? Yeap, it went bad, really really bad.

I had to press so hard into the pact to get a subtle shine as seen above - which is pathetic. Try using your brush and your pact will start to powder up and dusts of it flying away. Ouch. That's not appealing at all.

Does it does what it claims?
Claims: The highlighter makes the face look bright as the candy sweet sugar pearl naturally blends.
Sorry but no. It doesn't pick up anything at all especially when you use your brush! Or did I read the functions wrongly? It should be a translucent powder pact? Not sure what is this for. Never had I ever given such a bad review before. In this case, I decided to declutter this on Carousell since I definitely wouldn't ever touch this again lol. Moral of the story, don't waste your money.

Summary of product:
| Packaging |
~ The box packaging is the bomb, and I like it over the highlighter packaging. A pink and blue combo casing with holographic words printed on top of the lid. Beautiful rainbow shades inside.

| Smell |
~ No scent.

| Color? |
~ Blue, Orange, Pink, Green, Yellow - but no pigments.

| Pros |
~ Aesthetically Pleasing.

| Cons | 
~ No pigments, no 'glowing' effect.
~ Pricey? 7.5g for $26sgd (Not worth)
~ Powdery when you swipe your brush across which is a mess.

| Would I buy this again? |
Never. I wouldn't ever waste my money on it. Decluttered it on carousell at $11.90 mailed since I only used it once for swatch and review purposes. It is only nice to look at. But I don't need something nice to look at. I needed something usable hmm.

| Where to buy? |
I bought mine from Althea, Online (Korea).
You can buy them in stores At Etude House Singapore for $26sgd too!

| Ratings on this product |
1/5 Hearts!
*1 heart for the pleasing packaging design.
