Brand Special: Etude House!

I can't remember when I first became aware of the Korean beauty brand 'Etude House', but DO remember being in absolute awe of their super cute packaging. It's all very girly and pink. 

Before Christmas, as I was doing some research, I discovered that months earlier Etude house had brought out a collaboration with Disney. To me this was a match made in heaven. In the collab, there were four sub collections that were each based upon a Disney princess; Snow White, Belle, Cinderella and Jasmine. After a thorough look on eBay I discovered that some pieces of the collection was available; making me squee with happiness.
One of the items I got was the Princess Rose Cheek Blusher. This was a part of the Belle collection and came in two varieties; Pink Rose and Coral Rose. My first impression was that the packaging was cute; the blush came in a box designed like a storybook.

The spine of the book includes the quote 'I want so much more than they've got planned'.

The formulation is very soft and almost creamy (though it is a powder blush). It is very pigmented, without being too 'in-your-face'. It has tiny little shimmers in it, which gives the face a brightened flush.

The other product that I got from the Disney collection was the Princess Happy Ending Moisture Vivid Lipstick. This was available in both the Snow White and the Belle collections. There were two colour options; Apple Red and Purple Rose.

On the side of the packaging is the quote 'Everything's going to be alright'.

I chose the Apple Red variety, which again came in super cute packaging. The box was white with red and gold images on it, such as apples, tiaras and castles.

The colour is a vivid bright red that's very much 'in-your-face'. The formula is very smooth and creamy, leaving the lips feeling very moisturised. It also leaves a nice shine to the lips too!

I was super hyped from buying these two that I bought another product from outside the Disney collab. I had been looking for a cream blush to round out my current collection, and I kept seeing a cream blush from Etude House all over eBay.

This is the Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Colour. It is a cream blush that comes in five different shades that are all named after sweet desserts. In the collection there is: Blueberry Cheesecake, Orange Choux Cake, Peach Sugar Cake, Raspberry Mousse Cake, and Strawberry Chiffon Cake. How yummy do they sound!

I chose the Blueberry Cheesecake, which is a very light lilac shade. It's pigmentation is strong (I only have to apply it lightly to my cheeks), and it's VERY long lasting. Although it is an all over colour, I only use it as a cream blush. It is very similar in colour and tone to MAC Saint Germain which I use on the lips instead.

What do you think? Have you tried any Etude House products before? You have to admit that they are super cute and feminine!

MAC: Fraud or Not?

It's getting to the time of year when  people start gathering together all there gifts in the rush to the holiday season. They start trying to get the best gifts possible for the best price they can. Unfortunately that leaves them vulnerable for people to take advantage of them. The most common form of this is through the use of counterfeit goods. 
Recently a MAC lipstick was purchased for me, as a Christmas gift, from eBay. When I learned of it I was immediately sceptical and dubious of how genuine it was; I like to research into the item and view the pictures available myself. When I checked the listing, the lipstick was listed as 'MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick'. Upon looking at the details and the images available, I noticed that there were very few specifics and one general image of the lipstick with the lid off. I immediately wrote to the seller asking for pictures of the bottom label on the box and the lipstick tube (Well as details such as finish and shade). I knew th…

Barry M Colour Changing Lip Paint in Neptune

Remember way, way back, back to the very beginning of my blog. One of the very first products that I reviewed was the Barry M Lip Paint in the shade Genie. For those who don't know, Genie is an unusual colour changing lipstick. While it looks green in the tube, it turns a shade of pink on the lips that is supposed to be different for each person. It is supposed to be a result of the lipstick reacting to the alkaline level of the lips. 

Farewell to Lime Crime Unicorn Lipsticks

As you may, or may not, know Lime Crime are discontinuing their Unicorn Lipsticks. Such a sad thing, I know. I remember first hearing of the lipstick from a family member who had one in their collection. I always promised myself that one day, I would have a Unicorn Lipstick. When I seen their Instagram post about the discontinue, I immediately went onto their website and bought not one or two, but THREE Unicorn Lipstick. Let me tell you I have never been happier; their are no post buy regrets on these babies!
