Finally! I'm glad my family decided to go to Megamall, the last time we visited Megamall was still back in April because it's far!
I only got two brushes because Etude House's stippling brush is out of stock but they'll be restocking next week and I left my phone numbers so they'll be able to text me once the stocks came. Hopefully it will come before I go out of the country.
Here are my mother's loot, all are priced at Php 48.00 and these are from the Petite Darling collection

Here's my loot: Multi Eye Shadow Brush and Concealer and Eye Liner Brush
Multi Eye Shadow Brush Php198.00
After sanitizing my hands I opened the pack inside the Etude House and felt the brush, I am amazed at how dirt cheap this is and yet it's quite soft. It's not very soft to the point it won't prick your sensitive eye area but as long as you don't clumsy pat this on your lid you won't feel any pricking feeling.

This is made out of pony hair according to the packaging and it doesn't smell, yey! I am really scared with brushes that smell due to my past experience. My only qualm with this one is that there isn't enough bristles so you could see a gap or balding spot in between the ferule. I bought this because I was eyeing MAC 214 Short Shader Brush but of course in reality I must be practical and buy the one I can afford (and then just buy MAC later when I'm earning my own money). I also like this because it feels almost a lot like MAC brushes- the shape of the handle and matte paint.
Concealer and Eye Liner Brush Php128.00
This is one of their good products in my opinion, the bristles are aligned properly and the synthetic hair is very fine that's good enough for a nice and convenient eye lining experience. I might get another one of this when I test this tomorrow! I have a lot of gel liners (5 in total) and washing one eye liner brush several times would wear it out easily.

This is quite soft and it bends easily so you'll need a light hand when applying gel liners which is just good because you would want light hands when applying eye make up to prevent tugging and fine lines.
I love that it's short handled brushes so I could go near the mirror without bumping the handle on the mirror especially when lining my eyes.
When I was searching for this one and I failed to see it on the wall full of brushes, I asked the SA if they don't stock up on this one and she said no they don't have the angled eye liner brush. Okay then so I walked around and saw this in the gel liner section. Oh... Their brushes are scattered around and not just placed in one place. I get it, I hope the SAs would be more attentive next time around =) It's okay for now because it's just their opening.
Will I be going back to Etude House? Yes! Although Etude House products are hit and miss it's worth it to go and scan their products for good cheap alternatives to high end products plus they provide good product packaging (cute and sturdy) as compared to other same price range brands.
Now I'm just wishing they'll stock up on Duo Fibre Brush so I could pick up another Angled Eye Liner brush =p
