A while ago Etude House in Korea released a new line in collaboration with Disney, called “XOXO Minnie”. I’m a huge Disney film and cartoon fan and I couldn’t get past these. Actually, I bought several of these products, but today’s post will be about Etude House Minnie Kissing Lips in Minnie Red.
Needless to say, that the packaging is devoted to Mickey Mouse’s better half, Minnie Mouse. The color scheme is focused on black, red and white here, which I love absolutely.♥ But just have a look at the pictures, and you’ll know what I mean:
The description and instructions on the packaging are in Korean and English:
The color of this lipstick is a classy red shade. This Minnie Kissing Lips Lipstick from Etude House is also available in a pink shade. The lipstick tube has a cute Minnie Mouse design as well ♥ *_*
If you swatch the lipstick, the pigmentation of Etude House Minnie Kissing Lips is really great. The consistency is surprisingly creamy and feels lightweight and moisturizing. If has a nice texture on the lips and didn’t give me a feeling of dry lips. The color is buildable and you can choose by yourself whether you prefer to just dab it lightly onto the lips or to give them the full pigmentation. I love wearing red lipstick, and I love high pigmented lips, too. It also works nicely with lip balm underneath and gives your lip an extra amount of moisture, in case you’ve got very dry lips.
Considering the price, this lipstick’s staying power is okay. It’s not super long lasting, but anyway this is difficult to achieve if you are drinking and eating. A Mac Lipstick will probably last longer, but then again I have to admit that I love this texture more, than my Mac Lipstick, because it feels nicer on the lips. I can definitively give thumbs up for this!♥
