Review: Etude House Princess Etoinette Crystal Shine Lips #PBE102

Hello! ~ This is a review of the gorgeous Etude House Princess Etoinette Crystal Shine Lips # #PBE102. The Etude House Etoinette Collection was released at the end of last year, and now Etude House has brought it back with new items. I have already reviewed  #POR202 from last year's collection here and #PBE001 here. The 3.4g lipstick is now available in 3 new shades.

One of the differences between the old and new shades is that the old ones came in a light pink packing, while the new ones are white. I loved the pink design already, but the white ones are even more beautiful, because they look even more elegant. 

Another difference is that the Etude House Etoinette Crystal Shine Lips lipsticks are supposed to be perfumed. I tried sniffing them like a maniac, but I have to admit that I cannot really smell any difference compared to the old ones. If there is a scent, then it is a really faint one.

It is supposed to be a smooth lipstick that delivers moisture and a "soft shimmering flush" to your lips. #PBE102 is a light apricot shade and much "warmer" than the other pinks hades I tried from this line. The shimmer is there, but really only noticeable if sun shines right on it.

The formula of this new Etude House Princess Etoinette Crystal Shine Lip lipstick seems to be the same as the one of the ones from 2012: It has a medium to good coverage on your lips, there is a decent shimmer, it is easy to apply and tasteless. It could be slightly bit creamier for my taste, but that's because I usually have very dry lips. Overall I cannot notice that it would add much moisture to my lips. The lasting power of this is average, though my lips seem to feel even dryer after wearing this for a while. 
Overall, just like the other lipsticks from this line, this is a decent lipstick that stands out the most because of its beautiful packing, but otherwise is rather average. For my personal taste PBE102 has the prettiest shade of them and I do not regret purchasing it.

Very beautiful and unique packing
Pretty color 
Easy to apply

Not ideal for dry lips


  1. Omg I'm in love with the color!!! Does it have a matte finish? If it does then I'm def buying it haha XD

  2. No, I am afraid it is not matte. This photo shows the finish better, I just did not use it for the review because it turned out slightly blurry:

  3. Die Verpackung ist ja wieder einmal sehr süß, aber die Lippenstifte haben mich letztes Jahr schon nicht besonders angemacht resp. hat mir das Ergebnis nicht übermäßig gefallen, weshalb ich hier wohl keinen kaufen werde, Etwas schade finde ich es ja schon, dass Etude House keine neue Kollektion gebracht hat, sondern einfach die alte neu verpackt.

  4. Thank you for the review!

    The shade is awesome, I have to get this. ~

  5. The shade looks so good on you! Pretty color and packaging but since I had a very dry lip so I pass..
