[Review/Overview] Etude House Princess Makeup Table

Friday, March 20, 2015

Hi, lovelies! I finally got the Etude House Princess Makeup Table that I had been wanting to get for such a long time. This will be a brief Overview/Review where I will be talking about its functions, what I like and what I don't like about it.

The box this comes in is just too cute. The design is just so pretty, and you could even "pop out" the little ribbons on top of it, probably so you could use it as a handle if you buy it in a physical store. Recently I feel like the ETUDE HOUSE's packaging is prettier than the actual product inside of it, haha. All of the separate pieces of the Makeup Table were neatly wrapped in protective plastic.

I was also a bit surprised by the big size of the box, and I later noticed that the Makeup Itself also was a lot bigger than I thought it would be.

Even the instructions have a very cute design, hah... The instructions were all in Korean but even though I don't understand what it says, the pictures made it very easy to follow and understand how to put the Makeup Table together.

A "Special Glue" and Tape Stickers are included. I actually tried to put it together without using the glue since I wanted to be able to take it apart easily if I wanted to, but it turned out to be very unstable so I had to use the glue after all. It also said that you can use the Tape Stickers for additional sturdiness too, but I didn't use it since I didn't think it was necessary. The glue did the job! Just pay some extra attention when you use the glue since it's very runny and dries very quickly (It's identical to nail glue). Anyhow, like I said it's really easy to follow the instructions so anyone will be able to put it together very quickly without any problems. 

The overall design of this Makeup Table is so pretty and the shape of it looks very unique to me. The detailing at the very bottom and the rounded edges of the shelves are very nice touches. I especially like the part at the top of everything which is a good place to put "long" products like BB Creams or products that can't really stand by themselves.

A useful function I noticed when first putting it together was that there are several "holes" which are located at different heights. You can customize the shelves (almost) however you like which is actually very useful. This allows you to to actually fit the products you have more easily despite the size and you won't be as restricted as you would have been if there was only one position to put the shelves in, if that makes any sense. The shelves also have a slightly elevated edge which will keep the products you put there from falling off.

Another thing I noticed, which probably is my favorite feature, is that you can rotate it! It has a this circle thingy at the bottom which allows you to rotate the Makeup Table easily without the Makeup Table itself sliding all over the place. It's very neat! It doesn't sound that fancy but I actually really like this feature. It's something that I haven't seen in any other kind of storage objects before.

I really like this Makeup Table and I'm so happy to finally have it. However, there are just a couple of things which kinda bugged me that I want to mention. First of all, I just feel like the space inside of the shelves is a bit awkward. Some of the products I have fill up the spaces perfectly thanks to the adjustable shelves, but most of the time it just looks like there is way too much space and too little product. I will eventually make another post to show you what it looks like, but for now you can search for other bloggers' reviews and look at their pictures. You will probably understand what I mean.

Secondly, a very small but a little disappointing detail was the color. I really like pink with cool undertones, almost lavender. But as you can see, the color of the Makeup Table is more Salmon/Peach-colored (And the salmon tone is even more prominent in real life). It simply has a more warm pink tone to it than I thought it would have.

These things really aren't that big of a deal to me, but I still felt like it would be good to mention since there are probably other people who might be slightly bothered by details like these. However, In the end I really don't mind these things since this Makeup Table still is so damn pretty! So, what do you think? Would you get it? Or if you already have it, what do you think of it? Feel free to let me know in the comments!
Thanks for reading and bye for now, lovelies!


  1. It is so cute! I wish I could have something like this on display. I have to keep my makeup in a lock box because my nieces are bad about wanting to "play" with Auntie Vonnie's makeup.


    1. Awww! I know that situation too. Haha~ It's actually kind of cute. My youngest little sister is the same but she usually puts everything back in place ^^
