Etude House Princess Happy Ending #3 Snow White

  

Dear Ladies and Gentlebeasts 

Etude House came out with an extensive collection featuring Belle, Cinderella, Snow White and Jasmine.

If you’ve been reading my blogs recently, you’ll know that This is the third post on the Etude House Princess Happy Ending collection. I’ve decided to blog about one princess at a time. 

Today we will be looking at some of the items from the Snow White section of the collection. I wasn’t able to pick up the red lipstick as that was the #1 selling item for this collection and it was sold out in a very short time. 

Here are the items that I got:

Snow White Nail Kit:

  

  

As you can see the base colour is not the typical pin up red, but leans more orange/bright red. The glitter in the top coat is also predominantly orange with gold pink and white glittery pieces as well.  

This kit’s box is shaped like a box. Many of this collections packaging looks like books which was a giant plus for me. It came with a sheet of nail art tattoos with apples, pictures frames and tiaras galore. I have yet to succeed in applying them without them getting destroyed, but I’ll keep trying. 

 

Next up is one of Etude House’s best selling items and it’s their Bb cream. I have used and am currently using various different types of this Bb cream, but this particular one comes in a book shaped box and special Snow White packaging. 

   

 

There are 2 different colours. I ended up getting No2 although W13 also work perfectly fine on my skintone. They are SPF 30 and PA++. They also have whitening and anti darkening properties as all korean bbcreams. I like this one because it is not as thick and oily in consistency as Missha and Skin79 Bb creams. I have raved about this Bb cream in the past and I will again. You can’t go wrong with these!

 

As you can  see, the dark freckle on my hand is fairly covered up. I will post a before and after picture of my face as soon as possible. 

There you have it, Folks. I’ll be adding more blogs to my site daily since I finally have the time to do so. 

Have a lovely day!

Etude House Princess Happy Ending #2 Cinderella.

  

Ladies and Jellyspoons. 

I’m finally finding the time to write this review. Etude House came out with this adorable Princess themed make up collection a while ago. I was unfortunately not able to get my hands on the entire collection, but I got something for every princess represented. 

The Cinderella theme has a nail polish set as well as 3 cream fairy glitter eyeshadows. I could unfortunately only get my hands on the eyeshadows.

Here they are: 

Pink Glass Heels

  

Pink Glass Heels is a vivid deep pink. The texture is very glittery although this is a cream eyeshadow. I’ve heard complaints that the product dries up over time. I’ve had mine for quite some time and I haven’t experienced any drying. I do however check that the containers are tightly closed. 

#2 Magic Pumpkin

  

Magic Pumpkin is a golden pumpkin  brown infused with tons of fairy glitter. Again it’s a cream shadow that has not dried on me. It’s extremely pigmented. If you’re someone who doesn’t like glitter or shine, these aren’t for you. 

#3 Evening Party

  

Evening Party is a glittery chocolate brown. Perfect for a liner or brow bone colour and even perfect for all over the lid. 

Verdict: I honestly wish that Etude House would make their limited editions available for longer. They are so, so good and I would totally keep buying these if they were permanent shades. 

They get 5 stars from me. 

I will make a look with these soon. I’m currently on my lunch break at work and slowly trying to catch up on my reviews.

Have a lovely week!

Innisfree Creammellow Lipstick Review

IMG_1621

Ladies and Jellyspoons

This is actually my first time trying out Innisfree cosmetic products. I have been using their hand creams for a while and I’ve been loving it, so it’s high time I tried their lipsticks as well.

I only picked up one of their lipsticks. I didn’t want to buy more and risk the chance of not liking them.

I got number 8:

As you can see it’s a very sheer lipstick, even though I layered it a bit. The colours that look very dark in the tube will need layering as well.

It’s more of a tinted balm than a lipstick, but I’d be willing to give some of the others in the range a try, since they are quite moisturizing.

They retail for ₩12 000, which is a higher price point than the average Korean brand lipstick, but Innisfree is famous for using natural products and that is something that is more costly.

Let me know if you’ve tried any of these and what you think.

Have a lovely week

Etude House Liquid Lips 2015 Review

IMG_1620

Ladies and Jellybeans

I got a text message from Etude House saying that they’re launching a new liquid lipstick on the 29th of January. I know how much I love Etude House and how much I’ve been obsessing over my OCC Liptars lately, so I knew this was something I’d have to give a try. So I scoured the net for reviews but there is absolutely nothing so far. I decided to plunge in and get two so long and if I’d like them, I’d have to budget for more of the collection. There are 20 lipsticks in the collection so I’d have to save a bit.

The packaging at Etude House is always a win:

It looks like kiddies lipstick in a clear top, but it’s actually a liquid product that is contained within a lipstick shaped compartment. It’s adorable really!

Here is RD301:

I found that the purple one after a while wears more bright pink thank purple, so I had to reapply to get the purple colour that I originally wanted. That’s not a big deal for me though.

I am very impressed so far as they aren’t drying, they apply easily. I initially thought that I wouldn’t like the flame shaped spoolie or applicator, because it looked really cheap in the pictures, but it’s so much nicer than it looks and the shape of it is proved to be very helpful in drawing a lip line. I would suggest not being too liberal with this product since it’s very pigmented and a little goes a long way. I’d also suggest wearing a lip primer if you wouldn’t want your lips to be stained, since they can be staining if I look at the swatches on my hand. I can’t vouch for the longevity of the product as of yet, but I’ll keep you updated since I’ll be wearing this today.

Pros:
Not drying
Super pigmented
Many colours to choose from
Handy applicator
A little goes a long way

Cons:
Will stain lips
Can transfer onto garments when it hasn’t dried yet

Price tag: w9500

Would I buy it again? Yes, absolutely.

I hope this post was helpful or entertaining at least.

Have a lovely week
