I was browsing through the Etude House website during their Korean Thanksgiving sale and saw their newly released Pink Skull collection. The collection intrigued me because it all looked cute, edgy, and funky. Also, the price was reduced and there was an additional 30% off because of Korean Thanksgiving, so I just couldn't resist!
The Pink Skull collection has two types of looks: lovely skull and funky skull. I picked up both the lovely and funky 3-in-1 kit and both of their cream blushers. The 3-in-1 kits contain an eye shadow palette, mascara, and a twin shot lip tint.The 3-in-1 kits are currently $36.12 each.

All of the packaging is so stinking cute. I'll show the swatches of everything except for the mascara because I have a bunch of mascara open right now and I want to use those all up before I open them. The mascara from the Lovely Skull kit is the Lash Perm Curl-Fix Mascara in Pinky Brown. The claims of this mascara is that it helps in curling drooped lashes. This should be interesting to use because I usually get black mascaras, but this will be good to use if I want a more natural look. The mascara from the Funky Skull kit is the Lash Perm Curl-Fix Mascara Long Lash (that's a mouthful isn't it?) As the "Long Lash" implies, this claims to lengthen your lashes.

The twin shot lip tint has two sides: a mousse tint and a pearl tint. The lip tint that is in the Lovely Skull set is called Pink x Pumpkin Shot (PK003). The mousse side is a pinky red and the pearl tint side is a orange/gold color. For the Funky Skull set, the lip tint is called Funky x Skull Shot (RD304). The mousse side is more a truer red and the pearl tint side is a black/purple color. The mousse dry down to a matte finish and the pearl tint have a sheen/glitter gloss appearance. It's designed so that you can use them separately or together if you want. The swatches below I feel don't look too different from each other in the picture, but in real life the Pink x Pumpkin Shot is definitely lighter and more pink in color.

For the eyeshadow palettes, there are 9 colors each. Each eye shadow has a cute heart design. The Lovely Skull palette is more of a lighter/natural look versus the Funky Skull palette, which has deeper/darker look. The palettes have a variety of finishes (matte, satin, shimmer/glitter).

So, what do you think? Are you more into the Lovely or Funky collection? I'm really excited to try out this whole collection! There were a few more things in this collection, but they didn't interest me as much so I didn't purchase them. If you are interested in seeing the rest of their collection or purchasing you can go to the Etude House website.
