Cinderella - Fairy Glitter Eyeshadow #1 Pink Glass Heels
You can get it for $9.99 at KollectionK or $7.80USD at KoreaDepart
The Etude House glitter eyeshadow comes in a container about 4.5g and is based after Cinderella, 'the princess who always believed that someday her dream will become true'. There are 3 glittery, creamy shades called #01 Pink Glass Heels, #02 Magic Pumpkin and #03 Evening Party. The basic shades are therefore, maroon, coffee brown and darker brown. They're shimmery, smokey and perfect to add a touch of shine for a night out :) They have a jelly like, yet still firm texture with a great, pearly sheen.
Other items in the Cinderella collection are the blue and silver nail polish set (really pretty!).
Ok, my first thought was 'OMG HOW CUTE IS THIS PACKAGING??' Whilst some people thought Etude's Lock'N Summer collection was a little plain on the packaging, they definitely won't be thinking that this time! It's super adorable, with the pastel colour combination and pattern on the box. Definitely epitomises the theme of princesses! I received the maroon coloured eyeshadow glitter and it does a great job on the eyes. There is seemingly a LOT of product for a little, compact container. The colours are very vibrant and shiiinny, and while it seems a little flaky in the photos, the eyeshadow is very firmly packed and only comes out when you use your fingers or a shadow brush. Furthermore, it has a great adhesive quality and a subtle effect on the eye. For it to be strong pinks, you'll need to apply heaps, so I like that it makes your eyes sparkle but not be too over the top.
My overall rating for this glitter eyeshadow would be
Because it perfectly suits the look I try to go for, and it's a very beautiful colour with great shimmer. My favourite thing is that it's quite light and sweet, and the packaging is a definite plus!
Would I rebuy it? YES!
I'll show you how it looks on my eyes (barefaced apart from eyebrows and bb cream so it's looking a little strange lol)
You can apply using a shadow brush or your fingers. I started by applying with my fingers, to put it on roughly as a base, then I used the Etude House 402 Shadow Brush to clean the lines and make it neater.
I had to put quite a few layers on for it to actually show up in the photographs, but you can see that when it's on, it looks much pinker than in the container. I like that it gives off a slightly romantic look :)
You'll also be able to find swatches for the eyeshadow and the blush (reviewed next) at the bottom of this post, so you can see the shimmer of it closer up~

This blusher is based on Belle, 'the princess who could see inner beauty rather than external beauty'. It's in a simple, yet cute compact of 4.8g and comes in 2 shades, #01 Pink Shine Rose or #02 Coral Rose. The blush is moulded into a rose, which is a famous symbol in the Beauty and the Beast movie. It's very beautiful and 3-D. The powder features straight dough method technology that allows for a natural look and shimmering makeup, plus lightweight and moisturising coverage. Other products in the Belle collection are the Belle Nail sets and the Belle Lipstick (a purple-y colour).
I thought that this was a nice, pinky blush and the shade made it almost look anime-like when applied. Once again, the packaging is amazing, as it looks like a book, which probably represents either Belle's love for books, or the 'fairytale' theme. Although the blush looks quite glittery in the promo pics, in real life, it is a little more chalky and matte. It's easy to apply with a big powder brush for a soft look. It's also quite subtle when you apply it, so it might not show up as much as you'd like. For example, in the photo below (of me with it on), you can't really see it that well, so the effect is quite weak.
My overall rating for the Rose Cheek Blush is
Because whilst it has a great colour to create a cute look, the effect is quite weak and chalky.
Would I rebuy? Maybe, but not sure
You might only be able to see the slight tinge on my cheeks here, but I actually put quite a lot on!
And here are the close-up swatches of both products on my arm. You can see how glittery the eyeshadow is, whilst the blush is very light and matte. (Snow White lipstick will be in Part II)
So that's Part I of the Etude House Disney Princess Collection Review! Thanks Etude Global for sending me these products, they will be put to good use. :)
