Review: Etude House's Nymph Aura Volumer #1

Hi everyone!
From my previous collective haul post, here, one beauty blogger, Widya, asked me to do a review about this Nymph Aura Volumer from Etude House so here it is! ^^
Glowing and dewy-looking skin is essential for Korean style makeup so if you're a fan, I think you might need this product ^^

Name: Nymph Aura Volumer
Shade: #1 Pure Nymph Aura
Brand: Etude House
Origin: South Korea
Content: 0.88 oz. / 25 gr
Usage span: 12 months
Price: KRW 15.000*

*I forgot the price of this product on Etude House official store (±IDR 250.000 if I'm not mistaken) but I will updated you once I checked it out ^^


Makeup Multi-Cream maximizing the radiance and dewy glow on skin, completing flawless skin with plumped up moisture.

To use: apply evenly on skin with 1:3 mix of BB cream or foundation. Use foundation brush or BB brush to get perfect blending. When used for highlighting, apply on the nose, forehead, and cheekbones with the volumer alone.

Etude House's Nymph Aura Volumer comes in an opaque-white bottle with a pump, which for me, is a plus point. As I have always said, pump packaging makes it easier to control the amount of the product taken out and you won't have to worry about the product's hygiene. However, one minus point from the packaging is the opaque bottle since it doesn't allow you to see the remaining of the product.

Etude House's Nymph Aura Volumer has thick-creamy texture and a little bit too sticky to my liking. Nevertheless, it does do its job well. Etude House's Nymph Aura Volumer gives instant dewy-glow effect to the skin, perfect for those who love Korean-style makeup. It has no glitter particles, which add a plus point. Although it contains fragrance, I don't know why I smell nothing from this product.

As you might see on the picture, the glowing effect didn't show up much when combined with foundation. I usually use more than the 3:1 ratio since the glowing effect didn't show up.


+ Pump bottle
+ Instant dewy-glow effect
+ Has no glitter particles

- Very sticky on the skin
- A little bit pricey compared to its performance

Ratings: 3,5/5


I would love to try the #3 Transparent Nymph Aura though~

  1. I've tried #2, pearl nymph iirc, and I like that one better than #1. For my skin, #1 is too sticky even though it provides a nice glow effect like all those Korean girls. #2 works with more subtle glow and it glides easier imo, but I think it shimmers a bit (I still like it anw 😁) and it was less sticky compared to #1. I usually use it on 1:1 to bb cream so it glows more and hides my dull skin lmao. Nice review anw ;D �

    1. yeap, I really don't like the sticky feeling >< I think I'm going to try the #3 though :b thank you anw!

  2. oh I had this, but different shade. sad I decided to sell it out as preloved when I realize how sticky it was on me>.< I'm just too oily to be able to use this :(

  3. wah thanks udah review request ku >_<
    krg suka ya krn agak lengket mgkn krg cocok jdnya bwt oily skin :/
    nice review anyway ^^


    1. sama" ^^ iya nih >< nga demen bgt sm yg lengket" gt di kulit ><
      thank you!

  4. I've tried no.1 and 2 in sample size, their glowy effect is so pretty but in the same time so sticky huhu. I have oily-combo skin, i used these for cheek highlighter only bcs it will make my face look greasy if i use with bb cream. But it's nicer for photoshoot, efek glowynya bisa ketangkep kamera. Anyway salam kenal, Nath! Nice post :D


    1. ikr! I can't handle stickiness very well >< I'd love to try the #3 though :b i think this is more suitable to be combined with foundations rather than bb creams ...
      thank you! anw, salam kenal juga ^^

  5. aku pake yang stick type, lebih easy to use & ngga selengket yg liquid ^^

    Fairuz Inas

    1. really? gmpg di blend jg kah? stick products kdg susah di blend :s

  6. Aku juga pake ini buat highlight aja. Bagus hasilnya, glowing. Tp kalo dicampur BB cream, alhasil mukaku jadi over glowing, malah cenderung dekil. T_T


    1. iya kah? kl aku lgsg di set pake compact powder glowing nya jd berkurang stgh (?) gt hehe jd nya pas walaupun nga nahan sm lengketnya ><
