[ETUDE HOUSE] Princess Etoinette Winter Collection *Eau de Toilette & Crystal Shine Lips*

After [ETUDE HOUSE]'s very popular Princess Etoinette make-up line they released some new products as Winter 2013 Collection a few months ago. To be honest, I got nothing from the first release even though I found the Heart Blushers very cute... But this time I made sure to grab one of the lipsticks and the fragrance.

The new line consists of the following products:
- Eau de Toilette

- Lipsticks 
- Perfumed Hair Mist
- Hand Creams
- All-Over Powder
- Mirror

Description: All your romantic princess dreams will come true. Girls, be the Princess!

Eau de Toilette:
Description: In Versailles Garden, one peony blossomed at the end of a 60cm long stem just once a year, and Princess Etoinette was fond of this precious flower for its especially elegant scent.
The packages of the new Princess Etoinette Winter 2013 Collection are kept in white, light pink and silver what I really like. You can find the Korean and English description on it.
The fragrance itself comes inside a white and silver bottle with a cute pump and white lace on top. The design was the main reason why I got this Eau de Toilette!
 The scent is hard to describe and I was worried at first that I wouldn't like it because I had no idea how a peony smells like. I was always thinking about a rose and I'm not the biggest rose-scent lover. Anyway, the official site says it has Pink Pepper, Bergamot, Raspberry, Peony, Rose, Jasmine, Sandal Wood and Musk in it.
Surprisingly I like this fragrance a lot!! The floral scent dominates but it's not too overpowering. I use two pumps and that last for many hours.

Crystal Shine Lips:
Description: This perfumed smooth lipstick delivers a surge of moisture and a soft shimmering flush, giving your lips a gorgous look.
The new lipsticks have a white & silver case and comes in three (3) different colors. I got PBE102 (Moon flower under the stars) because I don't really like bold pink or red colors.
Each Crystal Shine Lipstick contains Murmur Butter and Royal Jelly Extracts from France. They are rose-scented and have an imprint.
PBE102 (Moon flower under the stars) is a pinky beige with shimmering pink purple pearls. I often wear this color for work!

Price: Between 10,- € and 16,- €/ US$12-20
Bought at: eBay (f2plus1) 

What I love: 
The design and the scents! I don't really like rose-scents but these are nice.... 

What I don’t like: 
Nothing atm! 

Will I buy this again? No, but I'm still thinking about getting the Heart Blusher from the first release.
