Etude House Chocolate Kiss Review: Chocolate Kiss Perfumed Lip Set, Chocolate Kiss Nail Kit, Chocolate Kiss Hand Cream Set, Chocolate Kiss Perfumed Spray

For the month of love, Etude House galvanized our salivary glands into action with the delectable 'Chocolate Kiss' collection. I read somewhere that is exclusive to global stores? Let me know if you have further deets!

Chocolate Kiss Perfumed Lip Set

Name: Etude House 에뛰드하우스 Chocolate Kiss Perfumed Lip Set 초콜릿 키스 퍼퓸드 립 세트 #1 Pink Kiss 핑크 키스
Content: Lip Essence 10 g / Lip Tint 3.3 g
Made in: Korea

Lip Essence 립 에센스 has a secret identity; it is actually a lipgloss! It is sticky and imparts a juicy colourless sheen. Lip Tint 립 틴트 does exactly what its name implies. This tinted lipbalm brings the lips to life with a hint of colour and supplies the lips with moisture.

Chocolate Kiss Nail Kit

Name: Etude House 에뛰드하우스 Chocolate Kiss Nail Kit 초콜릿 키스 네일 키트 #2 First Kiss 첫키스
Content: 8 ml ×2
Made in: Korea

Smooth to apply and practically a solid one coater (two to get it completely opaque), No.1 Foxy Pink is a dream to apply. The same could not be said for No.2 Baby Yellow for it suffers from the ailments commonly associated with yellow nail polishes, namely uneven and streaky application. There is something about them that flummoxes even the greatest nail polish houses, and Etude House is no exception to the rule.

Chocolate Kiss Hand Cream Set

Name: Etude House 에뛰드하우스 Chocolate Kiss Hand Cream Set 초콜릿 키스 핸드 크림 3종 세트
Content: 30 ml ×3
Made in: Korea

Just when I thought hand creams could not get better, Etude House rolled out this wondrous set with three delightful flavours: Cherry Blossom 체리블라썸, Rose 로즈 and Lily 백합. They soften and nourish my paws with a bevy of plant extracts (Ulmus Davidiana Root Extract, Amaranthus Caudatus Seed Extract, Ficus Carica Fruit Extract and Prunus Serrulata Flower Extract to name a few) without leaving greasy traces.

Chocolate Kiss Perfumed Spray

Name: Etude House 에뛰드하우스 Chocolate Kiss Perfumed Spray 초콜릿 키스 퍼퓸드 스프레이
Content: 150 ml
Made in: Korea

This rosy scent is sweet and feminine without being cloying or headache inducing. The longevity is severely lacking though, I could barely make it out a mere 5 minutes after spritzing it on (liberally). That said, if Etude House ever creates a matching shower gel and body lotion, I would be first in line. It is no secret that I am a rose lover...

Are you getting any of these items or did you already purchase them (considering my posts are usually on the tardy side)?

Disclosure: Pink Bird samples.

Rick said...

I've always wanted a cologne that smelled of chocolate...or mint...or both! But my wife probably wouldn't want me smelling that good. lol!

I loveee Etude House packaging, always so adorable. Definitely true about yellow polishes! I think Chanel Mimosa is the only non-streaky one I've seen. I'm a sucker for rose scents as well, so the spray sounds heavenly. Too bad about the longevity.

Wow, so lucky you got to try them!!
I saw a palette on this collection too, it is there or not?

Bijin Blair said...

Hiya Mizu, I'm not sure about that either. But if you saw one, then it must exist!

Gen-zel said...

Oh my goodness! I am totally sold with the packaging! What more when I get to smell the scent. I want the perfume spray and the nail set ^_^
