The Etude House Color Factory Creates Customized Lipsticks to Match Your Skin Tone

Go on a tour of the Etude House Color Factory in Seoul!

I don’t think anyone really outgrows cute packaging. I’m 31 and baby clothing will make me grin a stupid, toothy smile and popsicle inspired lip tints will still make me squeal.
That’s why Etude House, a K-beauty brand known for its really cute packaging and unique makeup innovations, actually caters to a wide range of ages (yes, you don’t have to be in high school to appreciate their products!)
And I’m here to tell you that a recent visit to their newly launched Color Factory in Seoul is so next level, people of all ages will want to visit.

My final thoughts: While I once thought Etude House was all about fast beauty, turning out innovations at the speed of light, this experience reminded me that they’re also about quality and customization too. You’ve absolutely got to check this out if you’re in Seoul!
