Etude House’s holiday release Princess Etoinette is a super girly, pink, princessy dream; it has the look of Jill Stuart but for a fraction of the price.
The range is fairly large, with a selection of lipsticks, nail polish, candles, blush, loose powder, accessories such as a mirror, comb and brushes. I purchased a selection to show you today!
The cutest items in the range, I think are the blushers:
The powder and blushers come in these large pretty boxes that look like little drawers. The blush and powder come in super sweet plastic tubs…
When you open them they are quite shallow but definitely products I would keep to store other items in once the cosmetics have been finished.
You get a puff with the blush but the actual blusher comes in 10 pieces of heart shaped cubes which you have to put in yourself:
There are two variations of colour, orange and pink and I purchased both.
The hearts (as mentioned before you get 10 exactly!) are very very soft and I guess that must be the reason for storing them in the protective plastic packaging so it doesn’t get too squished up in transit. There’s a darker orange, medium then a light.
Emptied into the pot it doesn’t actually look very full!!!
I guess ultimately this is style over substance although the colour is fine; both the pink and orange are quite pearly shades with medium pigmentation. They’re both quite bright shades that make the cheek pop nicely but the pearliness can make pores more obvious.
The loose powder comes in a white pot but the design is the same. This powder is pale pinkish white and it’s supposed to be transparent but it does, like I find with most whitish powders, leave a slightly pale cast on the skin.
I am candle mad at the moment so I got the set of 3 – it is a very floral scent but nice enough:
I bought two of the lipsticks which are called Crystal Shine. I find most Asian branded cosmetics release lipsticks on the sheer side and even when you check the swatches and the result looks pigmented – nope, in the flesh it’s always slightly sheer.
With that in mind I chose two of the ‘stronger’ shades in a deep pink and a beige.
The packaging is seriously cute! It’s plastic though, but still really nice looking:
The colours I chose are PPK004 and PBK001.
These are quite shiny and leave a glossy effect on the lips. I’m happy with the amount of pigment with these two, it’s not as wishy washy as expected. There’s no glitter in these, perhaps a very slight pearl.
PBK001 is a beige-orange nude and PPK004 is a warm rosy pink. Both are quite wearable and pretty.
Each product is around £10 to buy (inc. shipping) if you buy from eBay so not too expensive. The packaging is really cute if you like the whole princessy look and I thought the products were quite decent too, especially the lipsticks!
Would you buy something from Etoinette?
