Etude House Princess Happy Ending #1 Belle

belle

Dear Beauties and Gentle Beasts. I obviously managed to get my hands on a little more of the products ever since I last wrote.

Today I am sick in bed which is the only reason I can actually find the time to write this in my crazy schedule. Think 7am-9:30pm including metro rides for an hour in each direction. Is it any wonder I’m sick though…

Aaaanyway…
Here’s a picture of everything I managed to hunt down on this collection. Still battling to find 4 more items but I’ve pretty much given up already:

I will however be dealing with the Belle themed products of the collection, and progressively cover each princess after which I will do a round up of everything.

As you can see, most of the products are packaged in boxes that look like books. For a literature major and a Disney fanatic, this is more than enough excitement for this year!

Okay, so let’s get into the Belle Products.

I managed to get one blush, (I’m missing the other one), the lippie and the nail set:

The nail set comes in a booklet box that says: “I want so much more than they’ve planned. ” It contains two nails lacquers and one sheet of nail art stickers. (Every princess comes with her set just like this.)

Here’s the look I did with mine. My hands aren’t my best asset guys, I know. Teeny tiny nails and all, I hope you get the gist:

The base coat is a magenta plum colour and the top coat is a honey gold light metallic. I chose to wear the light colour on my ring finger, though you could wear it over the plum.

The stickers are gold and pink roses, crowns and creeper plant swirls:

 

The lipstick is a perfect fall purple. (My favourite colour). I’ve done a separate review on this as it was the first product I got from the collection, but I’ll put it in here anyway:

As you can see: the packaging is just adorable and it has that matching creeper plant theme.

Here is the swatch:

And on the lips:

I would’ve liked for it to be more purple, but it seems to be the general trend that when a lipstick seems purple, it wears more magenta on the lips. 

And the last product I got was the blush: (I got #1 Pink Shine Blush)

By some terrible cough up I had lost a lot of my pictures so I will post the promotional one and take a picture of what’s left of my blush, which doesn’t resemble a perfect rose anymore:

I hope you enjoyed this post. I’m up to have dinner with the Beast and I’m singing ‘Tale as old as time’ in my head since I don’t have voice.

Xoxox.

Etude House Princess Happy Ending Belle Purple Rose Lips

Okay that was a mouthful.

Those of you who know me well, know that I’m obsessed with Beauty and the Beast and I’m equally obsessed with purple. Needless to say this post is going to be about both and I’m ecstatic about the product I’m about to review.

Etude House recently came out with a pretty extensive collection called Princess Happy Ending. It features Belle, Snow White, Cinderella and Jasmine. I’m afraid it doesn’t feature Ariel although it does feature Cinderella again even though they recently brought out a separate collection for Cinderella.

They have:
2 blushes
2 lipsticks
Bb cream
Mascara
3 Cream shadows
And nail lacquer sets.

I’ve only picked up the purple lippie as of yet, because the rest seems to be sold out already. (>_<) I’ll have to go hunting on my weekend off.

Here’s the lipstick:

There’s definitely a rose theme around the Belle products. It’s typical of Etude House and although I expected it to be different, I still love it.

Look at the cute packaging:

Oh, Etude House. Just take all my money. I don’t even mind. Seriously 

And here come the swatches:

It’s a perfectly creamy, very pigmented product. It’s feels moisturizing and not drying at all. If I know the Etude House lipsticks, the staying power would’ve been better had it been a matte, but it would’ve been super drying. It also smells amazing. It’s not a strong rosy smell like their Dear My Blooming Lips Talk, but just a hint.

I don’t know about you, but I’m perfectly comfortable with rocking a plum or deeper purple in fall and winter.

I can’t vouch for its longevity, because I’ve just put it on for the image, but I’ll keep you updated.

There you go, Beauties and Gentlebeasts. Please pray or hold thumbs or do whatever it is you do that I can hunt down the rest of the collection.

Till next time, from a crazily busy, sleep deprived makeup fanatic.

Xoxo
