Etude House ♥ Princess Etoinette Crystal Shine Lips PRD302 // Review + Swatches

Etude House Etoinette Crystal Shine Lips PRD302

I am very excited to review the Etude House Etoinette Crystal Shine Lips lipstick today and I will be honest, I am a bit nervous aswell. Reason being, one of my Instagram followers have recently mentioned that the shade PRD302 does not come in the pink tube packaging and of course my first reaction was... "Oh no! Did I pick up a fake one?" & "but it can't be?! I purchased this off RoseRoseShop!". So, I was very curious and nervous, I hunt down the internet for answers and it seems like almost every online stores that stocks Etude House sells the shade PRD302 in the pink packaging; but I have yet come across an actual blog review of the one I am reviewing today.

Anyway, I have been wanting to review this lipstick ever since the first time I tried it, it is a super amazing pigmented lipstick and the color is such a beautiful red. Not to mention it's adorable princess theme packaging. ~ ^^ I hope you are as excited about reading this review as I was typing this.

imagePACKAGING
As you see, Etude House never fails to impress with their packaging! There are two version of the Etoinette Crystal Shine Lips lipsticks, one comes in a white tube with silver detailing and another which is the one I currently own, comes housed in a baby pink tube with rose gold detailing.

The lipstick tube fits the girly princess-y theme so well, even the cardboard box looks very elegant featuring a baby pink base, silver / metallic bow and princess detailing. I don't normally keep lipsticks boxes unless it's MAC, but I know I would regret it later if I throw this one out. ~

There's one thing that I especially love about Etude House products is that the company is very thoughtful when they design their packaging. Instead of covering the whole box with Korean characters which most of us non Korean have no clue what it says, they always have one side of the box that is printed in English; with a little description of the product, directions and things to avoid etc...

imageLIPSTICK COLOR
PRD302 is a beautiful rosy red with gold sparkles.The gold sparkles are not visible when applied, it is only visible when looking from the lipstick bullet.

I think the lipstick name for the shade PRD302 is called "Sip of Wine", but I can't confirm as all the reviews I have come across of this shade are ones with a white tube. Gahhh >.< sooo many confusion!

imageTEXTURE
Etude House Etoinette Crystal Shine Lips has a very creamy, smooth and slick texture. Application was easy, with its smooth texture, you could imagine how easily it applied on. I love that it does not dry out my lips, it keeps my lips moisturized during each wear and it is a very hydrating lip product.

imagePIGMENTATION
The pigmentation of Etude House Etoinette Crystal Shine Lips PRD302 is ahh-mazeball! A first swipe of the product, it already gives a very opaque coverage.

Since the formula is smooth, it is easily transferred to cups when drinking or food when eating, after a majority of the product has transferred to whatever your lips touched, it leaves a rosy stains behind. Let's not forget, it also smudge to my front teeth if I wasn't careful! LOL!

PRD302 worn well for five hours on me and the glossiness fade within three hours, after that it just leaves a rosy stain then it slowly fades into the lip lines before it fully fades away.

imageSCENT
Etude House Etoinette Crystal Shine Lips lipstick has a subtle rose fragrance, the scent is so light that I didn't notice until I actually went ahead and sniff it from the tube. For people who dislike fragrance lip products, don't worry, I am sure you will like this as it's not a strong scent that will gives you headache.

FINAL THOUGHTS

I LOVEEE THIS LIPSTICK ♥

I have always been more of a pink kind of gal, I own a lot of pink lipstick, some are pretty much same shades, different brands - guilty! I haven't been much of a red lipstick kind of girl until Memebox forced me into this red obsession lol... Yes, I am blaming you Memebox! In almost every single Memebox I have purchased this year, if it contains a lipstick, it's always red!

Anyway, I am always on the hunt for the perfect red lipstick as you all know the perfect red is not that easy to spot. I love this lipstick because the shade looks so gorgeous and glossy on my NC25 skin tone, the packaging goes well with my I wanna be a Princess personality and the full opaque coverage, pigmentation and longevity fits a lazy person like me. Lol ~
