Review: Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer #3 Transparent



Well.. I must admit that I prefer glowy than matte, because I really love the youthful radiance of glowy skin. And I always admire all of those K-Pop stars because of their glowy and dewy 'plastic' skin, even I was amazed when they still look flawless with less makeup or without any makeup at all! Okay, you can say that I am obsessed with glowy skin. I want to make my skin look as glowy as possible. Yeah, I am too obsessed. Sometimes my mom got annoyed with me, and she was like "Just melt those transparent plastic bottles, then apply it all over your face!" lol xD So, I bought this Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer last month~



Honestly I was not interested to try this product at all, since they released this product in 2011. Because I have read a lot of reviews about this product, and they did not recommend this product for those who have oily skin. So, that's why I avoided this product! And I think the only 'safe' way to achieve the glowy skin is a highlighter, but it looks fake and weird if you apply too much highlighter on your face! So, I finally forced myself to buy this volumer in a full size lol and I planned that I would give it to my mom if it does not work on me at the end (her skin type is dry!)


So, this volumer is available in three shades:
#1 Pure, #2 Brilliant, and #3 Transparent.
I bought mine in #3 Transparent, because I heard the texture is less sticky than the Pure one. And I am not interested in the Brilliant one, because it's too pink and shimmery.. I think it's quite similiar to Lioele Blooming Shimmer Pearl Base that I have tried before. So, this shade is the right choice for me. 


Description : (taken from prettyandcute.com)
Nymph Aura Volumer is a multi-functional cream that maximizes the radiance and dewy glow skin. Completes your look with a flawless finish with plumped and moisturized skin. Create a celebrity glow by mixing it with any liquid foundation, base, or BB cream to give skin a moist radiant look. Contains Argan Oil and Avocado Oil for anti-oxidant and skin elasticity care.



It comes inside a pretty light-pinkish-purple box. The descriptions and ingredients on the box are written in Korean and English.



The bottle looks very simple! The bottle is made from a sturdy silky plastic. It has a snap-up cap with a holographic design on top of the cap.


I bought it for IDR 134.000 and it has 24 gram (0.84 oz) in it. I am sure that it will last for a long time, since you only need a little amount of the product.


And it comes with a pump~ It's more hygienic and it's very convenient for me to control the amount of product that I need.


It has a noticeable baby-powder scent. And I do not recommend this product for those who have extremely sensitive skin because it contains fragrance err -___-


The color of this volumer is light pink with no shimmer, and it looks transparent when you blend it~



As you can see.. the texture is very similiar to a lip gloss, and it's quite thick!


At first I was very nervous to apply this volumer on my oily-combination face.. but fortunately, this product still works very well on me! But it depends on how much you use, and I did not apply too much on my T-zone area.


Usually I mix this volumer with my current favorite BB Cream (Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly BB Cream) in 1 : 3 ratio method. But please note that you will get less coverage, so.. you might need a concealer. And you can also use this volumer alone as a highlighter, I have tried to apply it on my cheekbones and forehead once, but only for tutorial purpose. And I would never apply it this way to go outside, because it looks extremely oily in real life!


And yeah it's still quite sticky, although they have claimed this product is less sticky than the Pure one duh! But however.. I could stand to the stickiness, because for me it just feels like you are applying a very thick layer of sleeping pack on your face, and not as greasy as cleansing oil. Well, I hope you understand what I mean lol xD But I recommend you to apply a loose powder to make it less sticky~


It gives you an instant healthy glow, and I look like a K-Pop star whenever I use this volumer lol *slapped~ And my face started oily after 3 - 4 hours later. For those who have the same skin type as me, you can still try this volumer, but make sure that no one can touch your face because it feels sticky lol and I do not recommend you to use this volumer in hot and humid days, or when you are planning to go to the beach / swimming pool haha xD


Overall.. I really love the glowy finish result of this volumer, just as I expected. But I think it would be so much better if it's not too sticky >__<


So, have you ever tried this volumer? Or do you have any recommendation of other good products to achieve the glowy look without feeling sticky? Please share it with me~!

Thanks for reading and have a lovely day, girls ^^

See ya~

    1. pake ini doang ta dicampur sama bb cream ce? waduh bener kan kalo pake kebanyakan jadi keliatan aneh >_<

      Delete
  4. kalo mau dicampur perbandingannya sama bb cream 1:4 soalnya kalo kebanyakan gampang jadi lengket dan keliatan berminyak :)
    hehe mungkin lebih cocok buat yang kulitnya normal-kering dan gak berpori2 gede kayak aku :')

    nice review ^^
