Ettusais is pretty much a so-so brand for me. They have some really nice items but e.g. their eyeshadows are usually a big fail. Also they tend to have brighter colors (esp. lipsticks) that are harder to pull off for me.
For Spring 2009 they came up with 3 cute marbled glosses and 3 colors of a swirly blusher, all LE. The collection is called Sweet Marble.
I got 2 items from the collection from eBay. I ended up paying a little less than retail (incl. shipping) so I am pretty content with the price.
-Sweet Marble Cheek Color PK4 - RRP 1680 Yen
-Sweet Marble Gloss PK5 - RRP 1575 Yen
-Sweet Marble Cheek Color:
This is a cute little product. It's a rather small blush pan in a jar. Under the blush the applicator (a sponge) is hidden.
The blush consists of various shades of warm pink and is slightly shimmery.
The pigment is sheer-medium as you should be used to from Japanese brands.
The color is a fresh warm pink perfect to warm up my complexion a little.
It's nothing super special but looks cute and is a good dupe for the limited cheek color in the Paul & Joe Xmas kit in 001.
-Sweet Marble Gloss:
The glosses from Ettusais are generally rather nice, sticky and long-lasing with decent pigment. The Sweet Marble Gloss in PK5 consists of a coral pink gloss without shimmer and stripes of white shimmery gloss which mixes with the pink color when you pull out the wand.
The applicator is a spatula (my favorite type of applicator).
The overall color is a soft not overly bright coral pink with medium pigment. It's only slightly shimmery but very glossy and long-lasting due to the thick sticky texture.
The other colors are orange gloss and blusher and a beige gloss and blusher. I really like the look of the beige colors!
All in all a nice little collection and definitely worth purchasing.
