Today I'm gonna review Dear Girls Big Eyes Maker by Etude House. I got it recently in my last order from http://beautynetkorea.com , which is my favorite Korean makeup reseller right now. If you want me to review some particular item from this order, let me know!
The Big Eyes Maker was one big mystery for me. When I was ordering it, I didn't even know how does it look like and what it does, I simply liked it because of the name - who doesn't want to have big eyes? It was in my cart immediately.
This is how it looks like. It's a two sided eye shadow applicator with shimmery creamy white color on one end and quite dark chocolate brown on the other end.
This is how the colors look like
When it arrived, I started my research on how does it work. And I found out that many people don't really know as well. Some tend to confuse it with Cute Eyes Maker from Etude House, which is for creating the "aegyo sal" or "puffy eyes" effect, but this one apparently does not work like that.
So the correct way to achieve 2 times bigger eyes with this product according to Etude House is...
Let's try it on....
(EXCUSE MY CRAPPY APPEARANCE PLEASE! THESE ARE FOR REVIEWING PURPOSES ONLY n/////n)
Not quite as impressive, huh?. Although the shadows should be really easy to use, I just can't seem to get them right. The sponges are very thick and not really maneuvering friendly so it's hard to achieve she shape that is shown in the instructive picture. Believe me, it's not because I'm clumsy. And it does not, i repeat DOES NOT make your eyes look any bigger.
OVERALL OPINION: This product is a huge disappointment for me. It does not work how it should work at all and it's not user friendly. I still like the eyeshadows and I'm going to use the white one under my eyes (the brown one is a bit too dark for my liking), but would I repurchase this? Definitely not.
Have any of you tried this? Do you like the product or do you agree with me? Did you buy a cosmetic product that disappointed you recently? Tell me in comments!
