Etude House - Etoinette Special Kit - Pink Box #1

So you know I couldn't just leave my blog up with no pictures! 
I actually just got this in the mail today c/o one of my FAVORITE Korean Cosmetic Brands - Etude House 

Their cosmetics are always so darn cute and princess like! (no joke tell me these do not look like they are straight out of a Disney Princess's room?!?) This "Pink Box" came with 4 items including a lipstick, kabuki brush, compact mirror and a blusher. 

The lipstick is actually more on the sheer side which is nice because it makes it a LOT more wearable in my opinion. I was a bit intimidated when I first opened the tube because you know me and my love for nude and baby pink hues. This looked like it would be wayyy out of my comfort zone but I decided to give it a try anyway. Below is a swatch (excuse the horrible bathroom lighting for all of these pics but its like 4am lol) - you can see how the color is a little more sheer and watery than one would expect. 

Still not a color you will see me wear very often but do-able. (I actually think this would maybe look cuter on someone more fair than myself.) The feel of the lipstick does not disappoint however - very smooth like a lip balm and it has a slight rose macaroon scent. 

As for the brush and blusher - the kabuki brush definitely leaves something to be desired.  It is lightweight and not especially soft. If you look at the picture you can see it has sort of a crown top cut into the fibers - although cute looking I find that it makes the brush overall difficult to use. 

The blush is my favorite product (are we surprised at all?) and is definitely the one I will use the most. The packaging is a bit bulky but hey it's meant to be cute and fun so no points taken off there! It comes with an adorable little puff and the top actually screws on and off so no need to worry about everything falling out if it gets knocked over or you need to store it. The blush itself is made up of darling little cut out hearts in 3-4 different shimmer shades. To use I swirled them all together and actually really liked the results. (sorry no pic of that - next time!) It is not as shimmery as I was afraid it might be and overall was very wearable. A seemingly cool toned dolly pink flush. (It also has a lovely floral scent to it as well. I like.)

Overall this was such a fun little set to try out! The packaging on Korean cosmetics are unlike anything else I've ever had. They almost look like toys! I can see these looking just perfect on a vanity or dresser.
