Korean make-up brand Etude House launched a line “Princess Etionette” that was an obvious rift of Laduree’s ultra-expensive Japan-only Make-up Line “Les Merveilleuses” (link). But cheaper!! Les Merveillesuses blush is 10,000 yen ($110). While Etude House’s Princess Etionette Cheek is 2,500 yen ($28). Not drugstore, but not made of diamonds!
I bought the Etude House Princess Etoinette Blusher in OR201 Coral Masquerade.
Gratuitous Princess Etoinette Blusher Shots
Princess Etoinette’s entire line-up, which is not seasonal and still available in stores!
The puff given to apply and the very orange color the hearts combine to make.
Much softer than the Liz Lisa blush and less pigmented. I would call the color more “pearl” as well.
Other reviewers have written about the hearts breaking, 7 months in that’s not an issue for me.
Comparison next to my Liz Lisa blush (reviewed here). I’m not a fan of the dull gold/pewter on the Etude House blush, but I do like their baby pink.
Just-the-facts Etude House Princess Etoinette Heart Blusher Review
– cute packaging
– comes with applicator
– mid-range price
– not very pigmented
– too pearlescent for problem skin
– bulky case and delicate product not travel friendly
– plastic case up close is just… plastic
Final thoughts: A cute make-up product that’s more looks than substance. With problem skin I think the pearl shimmer instead of glitter shows up my scars more. I would purchase from this line again, but not the blush (edit: I did, review on Princess Etoinette Crystal Shine Lips Lipstick here in two shades)
