Update: 20 May 2016 to inc. shade no. 76-79

Original Post: 21 December 2015

So far Etude House have released 79 different shades of the Play 101 pencils. And as the name suggests, there should be another 22 shades to come. And given that there are so many shades, there are bound to be some similarities between shades. So I thought I’d share swatches of my collection so we can see which shades are similar to which. And if anyone is thinking of buying some more of these pencils, you can get a better idea of which shades may be similar to what you already own.

Btw, I don’t have all the shades. I only have 11 shades from 1-50, all of 51-75 and 77-78. But I hope this will be useful anyway :) Swatches have been grouped according to shade number first and then according to colour groups.

So many colours… and after putting them all next to each other, some do look really similar. My arm is all red from wiping off the swatches…. LOL.

Hope the swatches are helpful to you fellow shoppers :) If you’d like more info, I’ve done separate posts for 51-60, 61-70 and 72-75.

Unfortunately, only 1-50 are permanent and the rest are limited edition shades. So some may not be available for purchase anymore. But hopefully, if the shade you want is no longer available, you can find a similar shade in the permanent collection.

Happy Shopping Everyone! :)

  1. They have gorgeous colors but one thing that I dislike is that mine already dried except for the glossy colors..

      Hi Mizu, that’s so sad to here. I hate it when products dry up. I had something similar happen to my Etude House Cushion Liners from last year. I opened the cushion liner. Used it once and the next time it was too dry to use… Fortunately my play 101 pencils haven’t dried up yet.
