For this look, I used almost every shade of pencil in my arsenal - 15, 26, 28, and 50 (swatches re-posted below . The only one I didn't use was 20, because it was hot pink, and I wasn't sure how to incorporate it yet. But I'm sure that will come another day!
Etude House Play 101 Pencils Swatches: 15, 20, 26, 28, 50
For the eyes, I used 28 (shimmery pink) on the inner half of the lid, 26 (coral with gold shimmer) on the outer part of the lid, and 50 as eyeliner. 26 and 28 are glitter finishes, while 50 is creamy, but texture of all 3 pencils was quite similar to eyeliner, in that they dry and set quite quickly, so if you're trying to blend them, you have to work fast. I found it beset to apply a little bit of colour and blend outward for a more gradient look. The good thing is, once they set, then, just like eyeliner, they don't budge.

28 is a very pretty neutral pink, and it's a great neutral lid colour on anyone. 26 is a coral with shimmer, and it's certainly, for me at least, a more daring choice on the eye. I wouldn't normally wear this short of bright shade out, but I think it looked pretty cool on! If this isn't your type of colour, don't worry, there are more eye-friendly shades to choose from in the full range.
Below, is the same eye look, but with my eye closed. You can see a little bit of a smudging boo-boo on a small patch of my lid near the lashline. If you're more careful and less clumsy than I was, it shouldn't be a problem.

For the lips and cheeks, I used the only glossy-finish pencil, 15. I thought it was easiest, since the glossy pencil had a slicker texture and was just easier to blend on cheeks, and more comfortable-feeling on the lips. If you have more makeup skills than me, you can certainly use the other non-glossy finish pencils on your lips/cheeks, as I showed in my Etude House Play 101 Pencils review post, but I wanted a more subtle, blended look this time round. 15 is a warm peachy shade, so I'm sure that it will be quite popular among girls looking for a warm nude lip. I typically pick a rosier colour for my lips, but this was a nice change.
Edited to add: I received some comments on this look (on my blog/Instagram/FB etc.), and how it doesn't look very flattering on me. I'm not offended by such comments (I know they're not trolling, just expressing their own views), but I thought I'd explain why this look is up. I know this isn't the best look, and it's not due to bad colour application or poor product quality. It's due to the fact that the shades I was sent for review were mostly warm shades that didn't really suit my complexion (if you look at my previous FOTDs, you probably realize I tend to wear cooler shades more than warm shades). So it does look a little "off", and I know I don't look my best in such shades, but I've put the photo up anyway, because part of being a beauty blogger is showing how it looks on me - not so much so I can look pretty online, but more so that anyone who wants to know what the texture/finish of the product looks like when used on the face can see it for themselves from this photo. So while these may not be the best shades for me, I hope someone else who is more suited to those shades will find the look useful for seeing how the pencils might apply on their own skin. If nothing else, just take this as an object lesson in what happens when you wear colours that are wrong for you, and then read my Undertones for Asians post for an explanation of how you can figure out what shades look best on you! (I've been told my post was also useful for non-Asian people, too!)

I wore this look for about half a day, and it wore very well. The lip was the first to go, as you might expect, but the eyes stayed on pretty much as they were until it was time to take them off. So colour me impressed with these little pencils! And that's my look for the day. It's certainly a departure from my normal looks, but it's a nice change!
