Review: Etude House Petit Darling Eyes Cream Shimmer White

Hello! ~
Today I will review the Etude House Petit Darling Eyes Cream in Shimmer White. I don't quite enjoy writing reviews about products I dislike, so I will keep this short.
Etude Houses's Petit Darling Eyes are available in 3 different kinds - "normal" eyeshadows, matte eyeshadows and these cream eyeshadows, which are, unlike the other kinds, only available in 4 different shades, which are all quite similar. Shimmer White is a white with a silver shimmer.

They are supposed to be "soft and silky textured eyeshadows in romantic shades containing pigment and pearl powder" and are described as "light" and "creamy". Unfortunately I cannot attest to that, because it just has the weirdest texture ever, which is on one side too creamy to apply with a eyeshadow brush, but on the other hand not creamy enough to just apply it with your finger. It is almost impossible to apply it evenly, there are just areas where the shadow refuses and the finished results creases a lot. Only recently I tried an awesome cream eyeshadow by Canmake and it was very easy tow ork with. The Etude House one is a catastrophe to work with in comparison.

The shade also isn't quite as I hoped it would be. I like to use a light shimmering eyeshadow as "base" up to my eyebrows and only use darker eyeshadow in the outer corners of my eyes. Usually that works well for me for a natural makeup, but the Etude House Petit Darling Eyes Cream in Shimmer White turns out to look weirdly metaillic and way too drastic for a natural look.

This is probably the worse eyeshadow I ever had. If it was just the shade I could at least use it for special occasions, but with how hard it is to apply and how much it creases this product ended up right in my dustbin.


  1. That's too bad it doesn't work well, I like the colour though. I find cream shadows doesn't work on me in general, maybe it's my oily lids but it always crease, even with primer :(

  2. The only other cream shadow I have tried so far was part of the Majolica Majorca Majolook Illuminous Eyeshadow palette. The BR788 palette has a cream shadow which looks pretty similar to this (though less metallic) and it works really wonderfully well, no crease at all, easy to apply etc. I always loved that part of the palette. So I do not think it is a problem with cream eyeshadows, just with this one.

  3. sucks that it didn't work on ya... the color is nice though :)

  4. Weiß finde ich immer schwierig als eyeshadow/ eyecream. Schade, dass du so enttäuscht bist!!

  5. What a bummer, this packaging is cute tho. Maybe you could throw away to content and fill it with another product? =w=

  6. Aw look at that frosty white colour, this would look amazing on the inner corners : ) xx

  7. So sad to hear that, I thought this could be a good substitute for Mac's Luna :(
