I showed you the Etude House Princess Happy Ending Lipsticks a couple of posts ago and here is another product from this line, the Etude House Princess Happy Ending Belle Rose Cheek Blusher! This collection called Princess Happy Ending is dedicted to the different Disney princesses. Here you’ll see the blush from this collection dedicted to Belle from Beauty and the Beast.
Etude House is one of the best known Korean brands for cute packaging. If you are a lover of cute, girly and pink packaging, reminding you of being a child and the princess you always dreamt to be, THIS is your brand. Their packaging is usually so adoreable that you cannot keep yourself from impuls-buys – only because you saw the packaging…The cardboard box of this blush again confirms how much love for the details they put into their packaging ♥ It looks like a fairytale book with ornament roses matching the story of Beauty and the Beast. Not only the front site looks beautiful, but also the other sides of the cardboeard box. You even see the silouette of each princess above the barcode of the product.
The product description on the cardboard box is in Korean and in English. The blush comes in two shades: Pink Shine Rose and Coral Shine Rose. I selected the Coral Shine Rose Verion, No. 2.
On the side of the packaging it says “I want so much more than they’ve got planned”, resuming up the ideas of Rose when she dreams of having her adventures. It is really cute. :) The ingredients are written in English, too:
Talc, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Sterate, Nylon-12, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Magnesium Stearae, Isopropyl Myristate, Cl 73360, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Caprylyl Glycolm Cl 77492, Cl 15850:1, Fragnance, 1,2-Hexanediol, Rose Extract, Propanediol, Cl 77499, Illicium Verum (anise) Fruit Extract
You can find the list on COSDNA, too, and check for the single ingredients. Most of them are either green or yellow flagged. The good point is, that the blush contains titanium dioxide, which works as a sunscreen/ sunprotection.
Like the paper packaging, the packaging of the blush is beautiful, too. It comes in a plastic container in pink, with the same rose ornaments like the rest of the packaging The backside says which shade the blush has and also has the production date printed on. If you open the plastic lid, you’ll find a beautiful rose shaped powder blush underneath. The coral color contains a golden shimmer and looks really, really pretty. Unfortunately, the lid doesn’t have an included mirror for application on the go and it doesn’t come with a brush either.
Let’s have a closer look at the powder blush and how it looks swatched on my hands:
As you can see, the blush has a nice pigmentation. The golden shimmer looks really elegant together with the coral shade and reminds me of NARS Orgasm swatches I saw on various blogs (but I don’t own the blush myself, so I cannot make any direct comparison). The blush can be blended in easily, too, so you can only create a soft look if desired. I can only repeat myself and say, that I adore the design of this product line from Etude House. Below you can see all my three products together. ♥
If you are looking for a golden/coral powder blush you might wanna try this blush, especially if you also love the theme of the product line. I’m also very happy with the coral color and I think that I prefer it to the pink version of the blush. (Of course this depends also on your personal preferences.) You can get this at KollectionK for 10.99 US$.
