Ever since I laid eyes on Etude House's Princess Etoinette collection, I've been helplessly in love with the sweet and girly design. They must have a brilliant team of marketing folks over at Etude House to know their fans so well. The collection includes brushes, blushers, powder, and these fabulous lipsticks. Besides the adorable pink and gold packaging, this bullet lipstick even comes with the logo imprinted on the lipstick itself.
You all may know my weakness for coral/peachy tones by now, and I chose the shade POR202, which is a bright orange-pink tone with small glitters and a very creamy finish. The color depicted in the color chart is actually very accurate in showing its true colors. Under certain lighting it can look more pink than orange, but still just as bright! The small glitters are not very noticeable upon application and do not cause any sort of gritty/dry feeling.
The texture of this lipstick actually surprised me as I have tried a couple of their other lipsticks that have a more matte finish. This lipstick was extremely creamy, also because of it's sheer formula, so that it is able to provide that healthy glowing look paired with a gradient lip that so many girls like to sport. The color is definitely build-able, the first coat being pretty sheer. After a couple hours of wear it leaves behind a pretty tint. It is recommended to use it with a lip tint to achieve the perfect dolly gradient lip!
The lipstick packaging stands out compared to their previous lines!
- Tasteless, rose scented but disappears upon application
- Build-able color, from very sheer to vibrant
- Variety of different shades to choose from
- Natural, creamy finish with minimal glitter, but lots of shine
- The beautiful packaging!
- Limited edition! Therefore the cost is pricier than some of their other lipstick lines
- Not for those who are looking for very opaque lipsticks
- Hard to find in the United States
