Pickles and Ice Cream…eerrr..if you’re preggers maybe!
Coconuts….what goes good with coconuts? Normally they are paired up with pineapple, vanilla, lime…these are some traditional notes I’ve seen mixed with coconut when it comes to my favorite fragrances or body products but have you ever seen coconut and lemon mixed?
Holika Holika is a newer brand that launched in Korea. The brand is starting to gain an online awareness now so you’ll see it pretty much popping up everywhere as it begins to go viral.
Part of its popularity could be due to the fact CN BLUE endorses the brand or the fact that it has a certain Harry Potter/Gothic witchy deal going on. Store employees are all dressed like witches and products all have a boil, boil, toil and trouble potion vibe going on.
I chose to believe everyone is flocking to the store because they really dig Jung Yong Hwa in manliner and they feel bad he didn’t get the guy errrr girl in You’re Beautiful. Let’s give Yong Hwa all our money because he was the odd man out in You’re Beautiful! Awwww! Poor Yong Hwa! Boy, you can put your dupetastic, Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes Mascara look-a-like mascara on my lashes any damn time you want!
See? Korean brands know what we women want! A cute Asian boy leaning in to apply our makeup that wears liner better than us! Yes Siree bring that on now!
The brand has a line of Petit BB Creams available in five formulas. I believe they dubbed them Petit due to the small tubes they come in. I really like the size because I find it hard getting through BB Creams since 1. I have over 30-40 of ‘em and 2. they are so pigmented a single tube can literally last you into the next millennium.
Let’s take a look at Holika Holika Petit BB Cream Moisture.
My go to nude lipgloss is Korres Nude 33, it’s my I wish I looked like Kim Kardashian but at least I have her rocking nude lip look. Mind you, I don’t LIKE nude lippies because they make me look like living dead girl. Hey, not that that’s a bad thing, zombies are people too ya know…but on me, fuller face, chubby cheeks, it isn’t rockin’!
However, after discovering Nude 33 suddenly the skies opened up, harp the Herald Angels sing, I could wear a nude lipgloss and rock it hardcore.
Up until now that’s about the only true nude lipgloss I really liked….but now L’occitane en Provence Pivoine Flora Lip Shine in Rose Ballerine is my new OMG you NEED this nude lipgloss of choice.
Pond’s has a new range of wet cleansing towelettes in morning and evening formulas. Yay for AM and PM versions! Granted, you prob won’t need an AM version unless you’re pulling an all nigher, I slept in my makeup adventure but still the novelty of having different formulas is innovative to say the least.
Outside of my HG cleansing wipes of choice, MAC, I really don’t like alot of wipes because they just don’t do that great a job of cleaning up waterproof eye makeup.
The new Pond’s Evening Sooth Towelettes promise to clean away makeup and waterproof mascara….
Hoyu is a larger Hair Dye company in Japan. One of there popular series is Beauteen which is a gentle way for teens to dye their hair.
Sephora channels Beauteen Hair Dye with their new Instant Moisture Mask. I saw this and instantly though, “Oh, hair dye!” as it comes in a one of those super size Slurpee style cups as does Beautee’s hair dye….so you’re either very Asia and thinking, “hair dye!” or you’re really American and thinking, “7-11! Slurpees!”
Let’s take a look at Sephora Instant Moisture Mask because at the very least, cool packaging aside, it sounds like an intriguing product!
What? He’s a crusty old pirate, what’s not to lust after? Plus Geoffrey Rush does a damn fine job bringing him to life!
But dude, what up with the Pirates of the Caribbean Captain Barbossa Action Figure? OMG You’re doing it wrong Disney! WTH? He looks almost kindly in action figure form….not very pirate-y! And why is his head so damn long?
Speaking of Disney….
Disney is launching a brand new Fragrance Collection in Disney Stores this month! I’ve always wanted to smell like my favorite Disney characters. Betcha Jack and Barbossa smell like a great big heap of yo ho, ho and a bottle of rum!

As you know MAC has introduced its BB Cream to the US market recently. If you aren’t up on the BB Cream trend at the moment please see my What’s a BB Cream? post and my BB Cream versus Tinted Moisturizer one. I hope both will help you through your adventures in BB Cream land.
Early next week I’ll be comparing the Asian and US releases of the new MAC Prep + Prime Beauty Balm as I already reviewed the Asian version. I doubt there is any difference in the formula but I am curious to see if there any major or minor differences.
It’s so gorgeous outside today! Can’t wait to get out there. Totally going to do the Cha Cha Slide down Herald Square…..tell me it wouldn’t be funny if everyone didn’t break into a Slide as they headed out of work today?
I’m going to start a chain reaction see if I can get the suits to join in!
Cha cha real smooth now! If you see me you can either duck your head in embarrassment and pretend to not know me or you can join in! Damn straight I wouldn’t blame you for pretending to not know me!
k, ’nuff of that.
You know those coolio La Fresh Wipes I’ve been telling you about it recently? Well they have them available in a cool variety travel pack!
This morning I broke out my Elizabeth Arden Makeup Blender Brush AGAIN. We has committed relationship and is going steady nowz! No but seriously, I normally commit to no face brush aside from my Bobbi Brown Blush Brush! I have no strings, no relationships with any one facial brush simply because I prefer applying my BB Cream (foundation) with my good old fingers!
But since getting an Elizabeth Arden Makeup Blender Brush in the mail a few weeks ago, well, I’m about to put a ring on it.
Being Human fans I have some crispy nuggets of info from Toby today!
P.S. So pissed at him for killing Mitchell WTF dude!
He’s already been quite the busy boy and episode 7 from series 4 is in the can. He shares info about alot of new faces appearing in series 4, one old face, a shocking death (OMG! No more! I’m still in mourning for my Mitchell), a new villain (le sigh can anyone possibly top Herrick?), a sort of new supernatural element/ghost, a new writer, and a journey to somewhere that the series has never gone before (oh Bristol to Cardiff was SUCH an adventure yay! Heavy sarcasm!)
Ok, go on my son! Squeal! I’m excited. Personally I do think it’s like re-eventing the wheel without Mitchell but I’m game for new shiz!
By the way, have you watched Becoming Human? It rocks! It’s a series of 8 webisodes that features Craig Roberts, you know, that snarky little bugger of a new born Adam from last season!
Anyway, sorry, total babble fest there!
How about a little beauty budget eyeshadow to lighten the load of Being Human insanity?
Real Colors Regal Eyes Embellished Eyeshadow popped into my world recently and I gotta say, Imma like cheap as chips Sally Beauty Eyeshadow!
