Review: Play 101 Pencil in #12

When Etude House released their Play 101 pencils, I can't hide my excitement on trying the product. It is so versatile 'cause it can be used in so many ways including eye liner, eyeshadow, makeup base, highlighter, concealer, lip liner, blush, on eyebrows and many others. They also have the pencils in different textures including creamy, matte, gloss, shimmer and glitter. By the way, there are 50 shades to choose from. Yes! 50. ♥


I only got one when Etude House had their year-end sale last year to do the swatch and to see how great the line is. It never fails, trust me! Got the one in #12 which is Red.


I don't normally use lipliners as I go immediately on lipsticks and tints. But when I used this, it was so amazing I wanted to purchase the entire 50 shades. I used this as a liner and lip color.


I got #12 and the shade was in red. I personally got the red one 'cause I was thinking of using it as a lipstick, lip liner and a blush. More on the lip part though. 


The product includes a sharpener at the bottom. You just have to sharpen slowly and carefully to avoid breaking the tip of the pencil. Take note that it's not as hard as a normal pencil. The tip was soft so better be careful. 


My lips isn't shaped perfectly. Upon using this, you can make the adjustments on how you want to shape your lips. You can make it look voluptuous and pointy among other things. Plus the color is so nice! The product was so creamy and glossy at the same time. Perfect for everyday look!

Yay for me! (。◕‿◕。)

  1. It looks like you got tons of products from the year-end sale. Too bad Etude House is far from our place. What made you buy this lip liner anyway?

    The lip liner looks pigmented. How long does this last?

    1. Not really a ton, just a few. I bought this pencil because after watching Pony's tutorial, I know it has a lot of uses. The pencil as the lip color and liner lasted for 3 hours with me then disappeared a little after drinking and eating. It's just one coat though. I think you need to color it fuller for longevity.

  2. The only Etude House product that I own is their eyebrow pencil and I love it. I'm not into lip liners as well but I might try this one soon. :)

    1. True sis! I also can't wait getting more from the line. If I know someone who's going to Korea, I will definitely ask them to buy this line for me. Products there are almost half the price.

    1. Nooo! Hahaha.. Make up pencils are far way different than writing pencils. Other people not exposed to make up think that it's okay to use pencil on the face. Nah!

  9. My mom warned me against using lip liner, but I think this one debunks the myths that it will make you look older!
