As you know, I’m really falling easily for cute packaging. If cute packaging is combined with a Disney theme, I’m totally helpless and I simply cannot resist to grab it…Etude House and Disney collaboratons are nothing new. They had other Disney themed cosmetic products previously, like the Minnie Collection or the Cinderella Collection. Now they released another collection called Princess Happy Ending, having products dedicted to the different Disney princesses. Here you’ll see the Etude House Princess Happy Ending Lipsticks from this collection dedicted to Belle from Beauty and the Beast and to Snow White.
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…Just take a moment to look at the beautifully designed cardboard boxes of the two lipsticks ♥ Each of them is designed according to the corresponding fairytale, you see roses for Belle and apples and castles for Snow White. 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.
I took a lot of pictures from the packaging because it is so pretty.
The design of the box is continued on the lipstick itself. The shade of the Snow White lipstick is called “Apple Red Lips”, whereas Belle’s lipstick is called “Purple Rose Lips”.
The bottom of the lipstick case again displays the name of the princess, whereas the cap fits to the packaging design. The ornaments and writings are in silver for Snow White and in golden for Belle. The production date is printed on the bottom of the lipstick case.
Below you see how much lipstick each of them contains, since I twisted the bullet out completely. Each lipstick contains 3.5 g of product. You can see that the Snow White Apple Red Lips has a bright red bullet, the Belle Purple Rose Lips is a bright and vivid purple color.
You can see the color of the swatches below on my hand and afterwards how it looks on my lips. I have to say that the swatches on my hand look more realistic for the red color, since it is really a bright red color with and – to my joy- not cherry toned, because I have so many cherry toned red lipsticks. You can also see how moist these lipsticks look. They do not feel drying and I honestly love the texture. It is butter-like smooth and doesn’t make you feel like you have some thick layer on your lips. It also has a nice and durable stain which doesn’t look awkward. Of course they don’t survive eating, but nevertheless I’m pleasantly surprised.
At the moment, these two are my favourite lipsticks. They are so wearable, especially since I tend to to wear fully covered lips. The promotional pictures also show that you can use these for a toned down look with an gradient effect. I bought these two precious lipsticks from W2Bauty but it is sold out. There are still some of the other items of the Princess Happy Ending Collection though. Other than that you can get the lipsticks from KollectionK for 10.99 US$ (plus shipping), or from testerkorea for 9000 Won/9 US$ (plus shipping).
