One month has passed again and I'm back with another Pink Bird Box review from Etude House. This month's box is filled with products from their Wonder Fun Park Spring Collection which was released a while back. This collection focusses on the cheerful atmosphere at a fun park which you can achieve with these products. They all seem to follow a mint/purple theme.
You can already find all products from this collection for 20% off on their website etudehouse.com!
This review/unboxing is going to be super long because I will review each item seperately and add some swatches as well~~ Keep reading if you're interested!
This month they sent me 5 products from their Wonder Fun Park collection.

- Wonder Fun Park Dear Darling Soda Tint in #PK001 & #BL601
- Wonder Fun Park Lash Perm Curl-Fix Mascara in #Swing Mint
*RANT*First off, I want to say something about their customer service and reply time. They sent this packet with EMS speed shipping but mine took way longer than a week to arrive so I emailed them about that and they gave me the tracking number. I checked it and the updates said that my address was written incorrectly by Etude House (moreover my name smh). I emailed Etude House about it but didn't get a reply - which is funny because they told me to email them if I have any problems receiving the packet (but then they would never get back to me). I emailed them again after a week but still - no reply. After almost two weeks of waiting for their reply I came to the conclusion that they will never reply to me so I took the initiative and called the post office to ask if there's a way for me to get the packet. Fortunately, the lady was very kind and said she'll send a courier who'll deliver the packet to me the next day. I was very relieved about that and received the Pink Bird Box now (obviously) but I'm absolutely not happy with Etude House. If I was a customer and such thing happened with things I paid for, I would be very upset about this. Even if they can't do anything about it or wanted me to take care of it myself, it would have been nice to at least get a reply to my emails and let me know about it in a timely manner. I'm not the only one experiencing such things too.
TL;DR: I had problems receiving my packet because they wrote my address(name) incorrectly. I tried to reach out to them but Etude House didn't reply to my emails for two weeks. I got the packet by myself but I'm still very upset about this.
And now that I have finally received my Pink Bird Box the little pouch with the liptints in it was ripped. The liptints just slipped around the box. I'm happy they didn't break though.
Let's get into the real review now
The liptints from their Wonder Fun Park collection are very interesting imo because some of them are color changing! They sent me two of the Dear Darling Soda Tints. I got the shades #PK001 and #BL601. Both of them are cool tone.
One thing I noticed when opening the Pink Bird Box is that the formula of the Dear Darling Soda Tints seems to have seperated/cracked. It's no big deal because you can give it a good shake and everything is OK but here's what I'm talking about:
Here are some photos of the liptint applicator. There's a small indention in the middle. The applicators pick up a generous amount of product and it's easy to follow your lip shape with it.
Here are some swatches of both Soda Tints (#PK001 & #BL601)
BL601 짜릿밀키소다: This tint is color changing! It looks blue in the bottle but once applied onto your lips it turns into a light pink/purplish color. There are tiny pink microglitters in it which sparkle so beautifully! It's very, very hard to capture the sparkles but this tint reminds me a little bit of the Givenchy lip gloss. This one is definitely better for a full lip look because the color is very light and sheer. I tried to capture the pink microglitters below:
BL601) doesn't really stain your lips but the red one (PK001) stains your lips a lot after wearing it for a couple of hours on your lips. I only let those tints sit on my arm for about 10 minutes so the stain is not really that intense ;-; but my lips were super pink at the end of the day when I used the PK001 one!
These tints have a typical lipgloss texture and the consistency is a little thick. It's very hard to get an even layer because of the consistency. They do settle/ highlight dry lips which makes it even harder to make the color look even. I also really dislike the scent of them, it makes me feel sick. They smell like berries according to my mom but I think it smells like a stuffy car that hasn't been ventilated for a couple of weeks.
I personally like the (PK001) grapefruit color because it brightens up my complexion so much! I think the blue one (BL601) with the pink microglitters is very unique and would look really nice on top of a lipstick to give your lips some extra pop.
Here are some photos of the packaging
I just wanted to say that the packaging of this highlighter is so adorable *-*
Candy Highlighter. It has blue, red, purple, green and yellow parts and becomes white if you mix all of them together.
They also sent me the Highlighter Brush from the same collection which looks very similar to the unicorn brushes but without the fancy handle haha. There was a small protection ring for the bristles.
highlighter brush because the bristles are way too soft and not dense enough. I tried to use it with this highlighter and all it did was swirl some highlighter in the air and create a huge mess. I think this one could be used as powder brush but you're better off using your fingers for this highlighter. That's why I don't recommend this highlighter brush.
Swatches of the Candy Highlighter
The highlighter color swatches look very powdery and not glowy at all on the swatches but in real life they have a very subtle glow which looks very, very natural. I really like using this highlighter for my nose and cupids bow, I think it's perfect for that purpose because it just looks so natural! However, I don't recommend using it for your cheekbones or forehead because you won't see a difference on these spots.
Here's a photo where I mixed all of them together. These photos don't do this highlighter justice because it just looks like white powder on the photos haha but there's a very subtle glow in real life... it's kinda like 25% strength of usual highlighters.
I have to say that I probably like the highlighter out of all products the most because it's so so nice for my nose haha.
Wonder Fun Park Lash Perm Curl-Fix Mascara
Coloured mascaras seem to be a trend this spring. This mascara is available in two shades: Pang Pang Purple and Swing Mint. I got Swing Mint. It goes pretty well with their Wonder Fun Park concept.
The back with the product description
I didn't have any problems removing this mascara unlike other Pink Bird members. I used an oil based makeup remover to remove it though.
Swatches on my eyes
This eye makeup look is suppose to be dragon fruit inspired haha. I noticed how hard it is to make a makeup look with mint mascara ;-; I hope this one doesn't look too random. I feel like coloured mascaras look better if you only apply a little on your outer lashes since this will make them "pop" a little when you blink but I applied them on my full upper lashes for review purpose (I know I barely have any lashes).
---♥---The Wonder Fun Park Collection has some very cute packagings and I love how cute and detailed they are. I feel like the product quality of this collection is not that good though. I'm also a little disappointed of the Pink Bird Box for this month. I wish they had included an eyeshadow palette and this box felt like it has been put together in a rush. I hope the next box will be better! ^-^
Selfie time haha you can't really see that I'm wearing green mascara on those photos (unless you zoom in). I'm wearing the Soda Tint in PK001 and I also used the Candy Highlighter. My base makeup is the Precious Mineral BB Cream Moist in beige from the last Pink Bird Box~
So that's it for today, I hope you enjoyed reading this looong post. If you missed the post for the January Pink Bird Box, please click here. I hope you will have a lovely day! ♥
Thanks for reading my review!
