Once upon an Etude House, the world's largest flagship store at 2,300 sq ft was launched in the basement of Wisma Atria, Orchard Road, Singapore.
Step inside the magical kingdom of K-beauty and you will never leave the place missing a glass slipper or a bag full of makeup or skincare goodies. The designers of Etude House flagship store in Singapore wanted to make each and every patron feel like a princess while they are in the shop. With princess touches everywhere from splashes and shades of pink to photo booths, capsule machines and even a life-size pumpkin carriage, you can almost feel like you are in a Han Christian Andersen's fairytale story.
Cinderella? Your highness, your pumpkin carriage is waiting for you. Belle? Boards of skincare and beauty tips and information for you to read. Snow White? Many shades of red lipsticks, lip stains and lip creams and tonnes of skincare and whitening products to choose from.
Pony, the makeup maestro from Seoul
"Singapore is in the heart of South-east Asia and Singaporeans are savvy with a keen interest in K-beauty products," says the spokesperson of Etude House.
Yes we are! And it was evident from the mad crowd that almost caused a stampede. Especially so when Pony (aka Park Hye Min), the makeup maestro from Seoul, did a demonstration on how to create a lovely Princess makeup using Etude House's signature multifunctional pencil, Play 101, together with the Disney Collection collection products.
Etude House has appointed her to be the model to promote Play 101. Korea's largest entertainment group CJ E&M introduced a high-profile Hallyu makeup show which is called Pony's Beauty Diary.
Updated every Friday on INSITE TV's YouTube channel, the host, Pony, is an ullzang who shares Korean make up tutorials and the latest make up trends.The beautiful Pony, who is very much a chameleon herself, has created several different looks with these pencils.
Our resident blogger, Trish, had the privilege to interview Pony. Pony was nothing but sweet and quite a sport. She relentlessly took selfies with her fans while showing off that sweet and charming smile. Trish described her as, "Beautiful. Inside and out." Oh yes, she is indeed.

Some of MyFatPocket's favourite collections are:
Etude House Pearl Aura Collection [BB Cream]
The Pearl Aural Collection is formulated with Etude House's exclusive Pearl Aura Particles, a unique blend of Black Pearl Particles and Plant Aura Particles. Black Pearl Particles are created from Tahitian black pearls, which are touted as the "gift of god". Plant Aura Particles are produced by the process of fermentation of natural plants, bringing clarity and instant brightening effect to the skin. Coupled with the use of deep sea water and marine minerals, the Pearl Aura Collection hydrates the skin and improves its texture.
Wonder Pore Total Care Line [Pore cleansing skincare line]
Wonder Pore is a skincare line that refreshingly cleanses the pores while tightening the surface to bring brilliance and elasticity to the skin. Active ingredients in the products include Mint (Tightens Pores with Strong astringent effect while Reducing inflammation and pimples), Vinegar (Lightly acidifies pH of skin with purifying effects) and Anti Pore-Dex Complex: Deep Cleansing and Pore Purifying (Complex plant ingredients and Lightly acidifies the pH of skin).
Etude House Sunrise [Sunblock Collection]
ETUDE House’ Sunprise range is the solution to more efficient sun protection and natural nutrient absorption for your skin. Vitamin D is essential in skin anti-aging, recovery and vitality. It is also helps absorb calcium and phosphorous which is vital for bone health. While using a regular sun block does protect you from harmful UV rays, it also inhibits the body’s ability to absorb the natural light needed to produce Vitamin D.
Etude House Color Lips-Fit [Lipstick]
Formulated with silicon oil and silky powder ingredients, together with Airy-Fit Technology, the liquid type lipstick features an ultra-lightweight and smooth texture, which makes you feel as if you are not wearing any lippie at all. In addition, its uniquely designed flat and rounded-tip applicator allows easy and smooth application on the pucker. Available in seven vivid hues of pink, coral, red and beige, each Color Lips-fit is highly pigmented and long-lasting, giving one a matte finish.
