First Impression: Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer - Luminous Aura

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about the Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer in the fourth formula, Luminous Aura! I've already reviewed the other three formula's in my Fail Products, but I soon discovered that there was a new fourth shade, and was so pleased when I received some tester sachets with an order from Cosmetic Love! ^.^

 What Does It Do?
"Nymph Aura Volumer is a multi-functional cream that maximizes the radiance and dewy glow on skin. Completes your look with a flawless finish with plumped and moisturised 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.

Directions: Apply evenly on skin with 1:3 mix of BB cream of foundation. Use foundation brush or BB brush for perfect blending. When used for highlighting, apply on the nose, forehead, and cheekbones with only the volumer.

Dewy Finish
I was really pleased to see that this Volumer was similar to the second formula which was my favourite! This Volumer has a gold and red shimmer, rather than the pink and purple shimmer like the second formula.
Again, just like the other three formulas, adding this Volumer to a BB Cream sheers out the coverage a fair bit but gives it a gorgeous glow.
This Volumer is much too sticky for me to use it as a highlighter, it makes my skin feel tacky and it's really quite unpleasant. I have quite long hair which is on my face a fair bit, so if I don't set this with a translucent powder my hair just sticks to it. If I do set it with a translucent powder it looses a lot of the lovely highlight it provides.
This Volumer sheers out my BB Cream SO much that I almost may as well not wear it. It does give me such a gorgeous glow, but I also feel like it made my skin oilier than it usually would be, so my glasses slid down my nose. 

Would I Purchase This Product?
No. If I had gorgeously clear skin this is a product that I would consider purchasing! When mixed with a BB Cream or foundation it does give a really lovely glow and finish, but it's just too sticky to use as a highlighter for me and sheers out my foundations a little too much. I can get very similar results from using the Arllin CC Cream and I don't have to mix two products to get a good result, so I think I'll just stick to that one for now!
I would definitely recommend this Volumer to any Princesses that enjoy the Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer in the second formula, but are looking for a more golden highlight! ^.^

  1. I tried this last year around Christmas and because of my dry skin, it really helped my skin maintain moisture. However, Shea Butter does similar with regards to moisture and is actually better for my skin so I stick with that. I ended up giving this to my sister and she loves it! I also gave her my Etude House BB Cream, which she also loves. I told her to get on the South Korean makeup train! lol Great review! :)
