Review & Swatches: Etude House Play 101 Pencils in 01, 05, 08, 11, 06, and 44

Etude House Play 101 Pencils
Love a good multi-tasker? Etude House Play 101 Pencils have you covered. This collection of 50 shades have finishes that vary from matte, to satin, and shimmery, and a shade range that would put a kaleidoscope to shame. They can be used for everything from brows to blush, and they have the lasting power to boot! I have the following shades:

01 - a deep Matte Black
05 - a shimmery eggshell
08 - a matte cream
11 - a matte peach
06 - a shimmery champagne
44 - a shimmery bronze

No matter the shade, each pencil glides on smoothly, dried down solidly, and didn't budge over the course of a 10 hour day - no matter where I wore them! In the image of my eye below, I applied 08 all over my lid, 05 on the inner corner, 44 on the upper lash line, 06 on the lower lash line, and 01 on the waterline. Nothing moved - not even on the waterline, which is something unheard of for me!

The same lasting power can be said for the cheeks, and while some might think application with such a narrow pencil might prove tricky, the creamy consistency allows for easy blending. Depending on what you're most comfortable with, you can either apply it directly to your cheeks and blend it out, or swipe it on your finger to warm the product up first, then blend across your cheeks. Shade 11 provides a great peach flush for summer!

The pencils themselves are automatic and even include a sharpener that pops out of the end to keep the tip ultra-precise. Very sleek! To see swatches of more shades, check out the latest review.

If raving about the quality wasn't enough evidence of how much I love these, let the fact that I purchased another 6 shades speak for itself. At a little over $5 a pencil, how could you say no?!
