Review: Etude House Etoinette Princess Brush Collection

Today I'll be reviewing a set of brush from Etude House, which called ETOINETTE Princess Brush Collection. And because I think this set is uber adorable, I'm gonna spam this post with lots of pictures :3


Etude House Etoinette Princess Brush Collection (Natural goat brush)

- Lacey pouch
- Lip gradient tip (13cm)
- Soft touch powder brush (15 cm)
- Last touch fan brush (15.5 cm)

designed by: Sylvie de france DESIGN

 each of the brushes comes with a plastic brush guard

ETOINETTE LACE POUCH:
Cute yet elegant might be the best sentence to describe it. In terms of aesthetics I'd give it 5 out of 5 score. The main material is fabric, the pouch itself is lined with a gold-brown synthetic material and gold synthetic leather on the edge.The lace and the ribbon on the outer part are two things that makes this pouch look even more cute. But overall, the pouch has a bit of flimsy feel, I think it's because the fabrics used are quite thin. It has no zipper too, just a clasp button. I'd never dare to stuff it inside my bag on its own cuz the lace looks very frail and I'm afraid something would accidentally ripped it off.



 Typical of Etude House brushes, it sheds.

Etude House Etoinette - Soft Touch Powder Brush (Goat)





Etude House Etoinette - Soft Touch Powder Brush (Goat) details

Etoinette Soft Touch Powder Brush:
First I must really tell you that I'm a BIG fan of white goat face brush (especially for powdering, goat hair is a must!) It delivers an even and easier application. Goat hair has more texture, so it holds and 'trap' products better. While this Etoinette powder brush is also made from goat hair, it does feels soft, not the softest though... but at least it doesn't feel scratchy and doesn't irritate my face. I'd say the softness is close to Masami Shouko 105.

Shu Uemura natural brush 27, Masami Shouko 105, Etoinette soft touch powder brush

On the left we have Shu Uemura natural brush 27, it's the travel size version and this is my current HG face brush, I literraly pet it! lol. Okay, back onto the review, this brush is quite dense, and with correct application I swear it will gives you a beautiful finish.
Please refer to Wayne Goss Video HERE, he'll tell you how to correctly use a powder brush. Just in case...

The overall design reminds me a lot to TOO FACED brushes collection, this one is cuter though, haha! Everything about the brush is carefully designed. The handle is made from a high quality plastic and so is the ferrule. Everything looks so HIGH END to my eyes.

cons: sheds a little.

 Etoinette last touch fan brush




Etoinette last touch fan brush:
As the name suggest, this is the last tool you would want to use on your face on each make-up application. This brush is also a natural one (goat) and also pink dyed on top. 
Mostly, people will use it to dust-off any excess product on face, but actually this type of fan brush holds more functions and is actually versatile. I've seen Wayne Goss using this kind of brush to apply bronzer, blusher, and even a powder. It totally depends on your preference. I myself rarely use a fan brush. I'd prefer an airy powder brush for dusting purpose, and the usual angled brush for bronzing. 
The bristles are soft but it sheds a little, nothing's too bad though. I usually use this brush to soften any hard edges of blusher or bronzer (if there's any!).



Etoinette lip gradation tip:
well, before I read about this brush on the description box, I was like. what the heck is this? It's too weird and I've never seen something as weird as this, haha! But yeah, it's supposed to be a lip 'rubber'. The tip is made of a porous rubber. And it's not soft at all. Anyhoo it does its job nicely, and it makes a good lip gradation perfectly. But I feel something is a bit off, well, idk. I think there's no difference whether I use my finger, a Q-tip, or this lip gradation tip to spread out products on my lips. It's all the same.

★ Etude House Etoinette Princess Brush Collection, Verdict:
The only brush that I actually use from this set is the powder brush. In my opinion, putting up a fan brush and a lip tip applicator in a set contain of only three brushes is really a waste. I'd prefer more staple brushes like eyeshadow or blending brush, or angled face brush. That's really unfortunate considering how cute these brushes are! haha...~but that's just me and this is my own preference.
I'd highly recommend this set for make-up brush lover and collector, not for those who are just starting into makeup business. All in all, this set is just an eye candy for me.
Would there be any sequel of Etoinette series, I hope its designer (SYLVIE DE FRANCE) will do something about the pouch, it's so fricking frail!! I hope it'd be more durable > . <

I think that's it for the review, the next Etude House brush that I'd like to review is the duo fibre/stiple brush (which shed like cats, lol). Thanks for reading and I'll see you soon ♥

  1. After reading your review I think I would use these brushes more of a ornament decoration for my room, which to use them, they look so beautiful that I do not like to get dirty. I love change when using blush brush, I am very undecided whether buy it or not. But who knows

  11. The pouch is soo beautiful and I love the brush design a lot too *w* It looks so princess-y hehe <3 But I think the brushes aren't the best, I would probably only buy it for the pouch and the brush design haha :D And I'm excited for your next Etude House Brush review :> I really like you and your blog c:

  16. I agree with you comment that the powder brush seemed to be the only one that is more practical. I was wondering how that lip brush would seriously help with the gradation when using finger and qtip can already do a great job!

    Thanks for sharing, and they do look really cute!!

    Have the urge to purchase the set and just use the case, or leave it as a room decor xD

    But I really want to ask a question for the brush, It's been a long time since the etoinnette collection launched and I've been eyeing on this brush set. The thing that makes me refrain from buying one is that I read a review about it that the brush shreds..alot and when she tries washing the brush the pink dye top bleeds or the color bleeds (ack!) have you tried washing it? is the result the same? o n o

  63. My weakness is cute packaging for products. ;~; I've never used anything from Etude House, but someone posted a mini-tour of a store on their blog... too cute x3 Those brushes look too pretty to use! It's a shame about the random two brushes, though.

  66. I agree, I wish there were either more brushes, or at least a brush for the eyes too. The powder brush used to be my favorite, but after washing it, it just hasn't been the same :(

    Oh well, great review and really nice blog! :)
