Review: Etude House Dear My Blooming Eyes in PP501 Swaying Heart Purple


We all know that Etude House has one of the prettiest and cutest packaging in the Korean cosmetics market and this eyeshadow palette is no exception! Etude House never fails with its pink, princess-like packaging!

In this collection of eyeshadow quads, there is a decent sized mirror (so handy!) and two applicator wands. Surprisingly, I actually don’t mind the applicators since one of them has a pointier foam head so it makes it easy to be precise on the lower lashline! =) Sometimes when I’m in a rush and I don’t want to take out and use separate brushes, I am more than happy to just use the given applicators because they do a fine job!

The pigmentation of these eyeshadows are fantastic! They give great colour payoff and it shows up just as great on the eyes. I absolutely love every colour in this quad. It comes with a light muted purple, a deep brown, a dark purple and a more medium brown shade. In this specific palette, all of the shades are quite shimmery but I know that there are others that have some matte shades inside. I personally do not mind using all shimmers on my eyes as long as I skip out on a brow highlight and the rest of my face is kept fairly neutral! =) I love the mix of lighter and darker shades, meaning that it can easily transition from daytime to nighttime.


If I had to be very specific and pinpoint a minor flaw, it would be that the shadows can be a bit powdery. They feel very creamy and soft so naturally they will powder up a little when you dip your brush into them. So if you’re not careful then there can be some fall out but I don’t have any major issues with this at all.


Applied the light purple all over the lids, then the lighter brown in the crease as a transition shade and lightly deepened up the outer corners and the crease with the darker brown. Used the dark purple on the lower lash line! =) Skipped mascara and eyeliner for the pictures so you can see the colours more clearly!

Overall, I would recommend this palette if you enjoy shimmery eyeshadows because there are no matte shades in this specific one! =) I think every colour is really stunning on the eyes!


♡ Great pigmentation

♡ Adorable packaging


♡ All shimmery shades (a disadvantage for some people)

♡ A little powdery

      It really is, it’s probably the cutest eyeshadow packaging I own! 😛 Oh that’s true, I own two of their single eyeshadows and the texture really is different! I picked up matte shades though so that probably plays a huge factor into it! Waiting for the time when they release a completely matte palette! ❤

    I’ve never tried anything from Etude House but heard a lot of positive feedback about their products. The packaging is also cute ❤ + all shimmer shades, which means I need to check that out! LOL
