WHERE TO BUY?
Beautynetkorea.com was so kind to send me these lipsticks for review purposes. It is still available there (link to product) for $12.60 each, with free worldwide shipping and free samples with your purchase.
The whole Princess Etoinette collection is GORGEOUS! And the packaging of the Crystal Shine Lips are included. It has so many details on it, i can't stop staring at it, so pretty! I'm also loving that "E" logo engraved on the bullet.
These are perfumed lipsticks and you can smell the rose scent when you apply it but it's not overwhelming and acceptable to me.
LASTING POWER & TEXTURE
The lipstick has a soft & creamy texture. The formula contains murmur butter and royal jelly extract for hydration and a high sheen finish. I found the lasting power ok but not amazing, due to the slick texture it will smudge off easier when you eat or drink. However, if you leave your lips alone they can last around 3 hours.
It doesn't look glossy when I swatch it on my hand, but when it's on the lips you can see the pretty shiny finish, but the glitters aren't noticeable. It makes your lips look moist as well! I love it! In the picture below I just swiped once, as you can see it's not super pigmented, but it's definitely buildable which is great if you want to create gradient lips.
PBE102: A beige lip color
PRD302: A lovely red lip color
The colors are gorgeous and the packaging obviously too! I'm a sucker for cute packaging so this was a must buy for me. However, if we talk about the quality I would say it's okay. I gotta say that it does glides on your lips easily, the color is buildable (which makes it easy to create gradient lips with it too), it has a pretty shiny finish and it makes your lips moist. However, the lasting power is only around 3 hours when you don't drink or eat. It's a bit short and that means you need to re-apply it often during the day.
