Spotlight | Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer.

Having started a love affair for highlighting and contouring, I decided to give the Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer a try.
Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer.
The Nymph Aura Volumer is "a multi-functional cream that promotes skin radiance and glow with plumped up moisture." If you're a Kpop fan, or if you watch Korean dramas, then you know that dewy, glowing skin is one of the hottest makeup trends in Korea.  And if you've long been wondering how your favorite Kpop idols and Hallyu stars have such beautiful, glowing skin, then look no further. This baby does the trick!
#3 Transparent.
This product has four available variants - #1 Pure which is bright pink in color, #2 Brilliant, which is a lighter shade of pink, #3 Transparent, which is a very sheer pink, and #4 Luminous which is light beige in color. The one that I have is the #3 Transparent.

It comes in a plastic bottle, with a no-nozzle, airless pump. Although the pump is easy to use, it tends to dispense a bit more than the amount you need, especially if you're doing the 1:3 ratio.
Pump bottle.
And by that I mean 1 part volumer, and 3 parts BB Cream. Mix them together and apply evenly on the face. You can use a brush to mix and apply, but I prefer using my fingers.
The transparent gel is the Nymph Aura Volumer. Just a teeny dot mixed with my BB Cream.
Here's how it looks like when applied. It has a gel-like consistency, but it spreads out easily and does not feel sticky at all. I especially love its scent - fragrant but not overpowering, and very feminine.

Notice the difference between the two sides? The right side, which is a combination of BB Cream and volumer, has a very obvious, radiant glow as compared to the left side, which was swatched with just BB Cream. Just so you know, I used Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream, which has a semi-matte finish.
Left: just BB Cream. Right: BB Cream + Volumer.
If you're worried that mixing the volumer can lessen the amount of coverage of your BB Cream, you can use the Nymph Aura as a highlighter instead. Simply apply a small amount on your forehead, on your brow bone, on the bridge of your nose, and on top of your cheeks. Tap the product lightly as you apply to make it look more natural on your face.
Products Used:
FACE: Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream, Benefit Erase Paste in Medium,
Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer #3.
EYES: Ever Bilena Eyebrow Pencil in Brown, BYS Waterproof Eyeliner,
Fairy Drops Volume Burst Mascara.
CHEEKS: Tony Moly Cristal Blusher in Pleasure Peach.
LIPS: Givenchy Rouge A Levres #711.
Overall, I love this product and have no regrets in buying it. (Because I actually bought this on a whim, haha!) I love how it makes my skin look supple and radiant, especially during this time of the year when my skin tends to look dull and dry. And yeah, I like how this product makes it easy for me to get that Korean, dewy makeup look. :)

The Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer comes in one size only (25 grams) and sells for Php 848 each. Available at Etude House branches nationwide. :)

I was scared it would make my face look too shiny... lol. But I think it's ideal for this time of year when the climate is dry. :)

I have been looking for a product like this! As I've gotten older, I'm really beginning to notice that my skin just looks dull and kind of sad. Yours looks amazing with in your picture. Very dewy and fresh. Just beautiful!

It does look really great on you! And the Korean look is such a dewy and beautiful one. I think it's perfect for the winter.

I have never tried a volumer, in all honesty so I really wouldn't know what it does. But thanks to your review, I'm glad to know more about it!
