Princess Happy Ending

“I'm like a shooting star. I've come so far, I can't go back to where I used to be.”

So who is your favorite Disney princess, dear bumblebees? I can't choose my most favorite, but surely Princess Jasmine is one of my favorites! Not only she taught me to love beyond class or status, she's also independent and knows exactly what she needs. Oh, moreover, their OST A Whole New World is my all time favorite karaoke duet song :D

Etude House Jasmine Lash Perm Proof Shockara review
Etude House Jasmine Lash Perm Proof Shockara.

As it first came out, I've been eyeing on their Princess Happy Ending collection. The packaging are 'unusually' cuter than any other Etude House collection. There are three other princesses makeup to collect; Snow White, Cinderella, and Belle. At first I was so into the Belle lipstick because it was so pretty for A/W season, yet this mascara packaging attracts me more than the lipstick and I did run out of mascara. Argh.. decision, decision...

Well, so I ended up buying a mascara in spite of the fact that I don't actually love wearing it. My eyelashes are sparse, short and... straight. You see I do actually NEED a mascara, but I've never invested a high end branded one. I'd rather invest more falsies because they're more dependable and the difference is more apparent. Additionally, there's no weird sticky feeling every time I blink my eyes. Kinda out of topic, but I just want to describe the reason why :D

Isn't the packaging too gorgeous?

English description, directions, and list of ingredients.

Kudos to the designers who created the detail on this book packaging! I don't ever think to throw this box because it sits beautifully on my book shelf right now. LOL. Oh, just a little reminder, the mascara will expire in 6 months after you open it.

Etude House Princess Happy Ending Jasmine Shockara result
(L) curled + one coat (R) not curled + one coat

Review: The mascara promises to give you perm and waterproof result judging from the name of the product. Formula wise, yes it is very waterproof, it doesn't smudge either. I am a contact lens user so my eyes get dries and I need to use some eyedrops, but this mascara doesn't flake at all. There is no such unpleasant smell too, which is a big plus point for me. As I have naturally straight lashes, I find this mascara doesn't help in curling (see the result picture above). However, when it's curled beforehand, the waterproof formula really helps in holding the curl. It gives me enough length in one coat, but I don't see if it gives me volume. Because of the non-buildable formula, it will get clumpy if I apply more than one coat, especially when it dries between coat.

What I like:
  • cute packaging
  • lengthen my lashes
  • holds my curls
  • no chemical odor
  • smudgeproof
  • waterproof
  • one coat is enough for natural look
What I dislike:
  • the curvy brush is rather tricky to use and can cause unevenness
  • non-buildable formula
Price: IDR 110k

I am obsessed with this new drama that stars Park ShinHye and Lee JongSuk; Pinocchio! Never been a fan of Lee JongSuk, and not that I don't like him, it's just that his recent dramas didn't appeal to me that much. However, idk maybe because there's Park ShinHye in it this time? So I gave this drama a chance, and well, I am loving it! Korean dramas lately are boring, even the Wednesday - Thursday slots. Therefore, I was only watching old Japanese dramas during these past three months. Anyway, click here to find out more about the dramas, do check out their Soompi forum too if you're as obsessed as I am ;)

Enjoy your weekend, my bumblebees!

  1. Etude House has the most charming products. It's a shame that this mascara isn't buildable. It sounds pretty great in all other aspects though.

  2. The packaging is very pretty but I don´twant buy this mascara because the effect is not very noticiable.

  16. I'm a loyal Estee Lauder Lancome Hypnose mascara fan, but this one definitely works well for you! I love that your favourite Disney princess is Jasmine - that's so refreshingly unusual! Mine is probably Rapunzel due to the long hair! ;)

  24. I haven't heard of this brand before but that's what I love about your blog - it's always different products which is so refreshing! The packaging is cute but it's a shame that you don't get the results you want….have you tried YSL Faux Cils Effet mascara - that's gorgeous, it gives lashes SO much volume and curl, it's suitable for contact wearers and it doesn't stick or clump lashes! :)
