Among Etude’s 2014 Princess Happy Ending collection, I managed to purchase Belle’s blush and Cinderella’s eye shadow so far. The collection itself revolves around four famous princesses: Cinderella, Snow White, Belle and Jasmine. Each princess have her own set which consist of various make up items.
Cinderella has 3 eyeshadows and nail polish set. I picked up #3 Evening Party, the darkest, most chocolate-y of all three.
As usual, the box is prettily designed, as is the tub top! Baby blue + pretty prints in gold… so cute! The tub itself is made of plastic, but it doesn’t feel too light/flimsy. In the beginning, it comes with curved plastic cover to protect the eyeshadow once you opened the tub.
The eyeshadow itself is of dry jelly to powder texture… if that makes sense… feels soft to touch, and it ‘bounces’ back to its shape after you press it. Therefore, I will recommend to keep the curved plastic cover, just to ensure it wont dry up too fast.
I’d describe Evening Party as medium chocolate with microglitter. Even though it has glitter in it, I do think the color is still office friendly. The swatch on the left was immediately blended once I applied it. The one on the right was single swipe with fingertip.
Pigmentation was medium... easy to use and apply with fingertips. Color comes out easily, but it still has sheer quality in it. The glitter itself is soft and not gritty. And it does pack a punch of sparkle… not discoball big huge glitter… more of tiny glitter.
Love the theme and the texture of this baby. The color is sweet and office friendly.
