[Review] Etude House Etoinette Crystal Shine Lips Lipstick in PPK004

Sunday, January 18, 2015

This pretty little lippie definitely deserves a proper review! I featured this Etoinette Crystal Shine Lips Lipstick in both my November Favorites and Best in Beauty for 2014  so I decided to go ahead and review it for those of you who prefer to read versus watch! 

So let's look at the breakdown...

Packaging...
This packaging is to die for! I love the cutes-y packaging especially because it's big girl makeup in princess packaging! 




Formula...
The formula of this lipstick is nice and smooothhhh. I love how it glides on my lips and isn't drying at all. It actually feels like a combination of a lipstick and a lip balm so it's very comfortable to wear. 

 Lasting-Ability....
This really isn't the longest lasting lipstick, but it also doesn't fade right away. It lasts a couple hours, and then you need to reapply it. Honestly, reapplying lipstick is not something that I really mind, so for me, I don't really dock points for that. What I do dock points for is when a lip product fades away terribly (ex. leaving lips dry, leaving specks of glitter, clinging to dry areas, etc.). Fortunately, this wears off similar to a lip balm, so it's easy to just whip it out, reapply, and go on with your day!

Color...
This really is one of my favorite pink lipsticks. For some reason, I feel like I have a hard time pulling off pink shades. I don't know if it's because of my skin tone, but pink shades on my never look quite right. However, this shade (PPK004) is one of those colors that a "my lips but better" shade. It looks good with any makeup combination, or no makeup at all! 

Andddd this is what it looks like on me! BTW, want to know what is making my skin look soooo nice and photoshopped (I swear I didn't retouch this photo!)? Read my review of my new HOLY GRAIL product! Trust me, you'll be happy you did!
