Etude House Silk Scarf Hair Moist Pack Review

Etude House Silk Scarf Hair Moist Pack

Etude House Silk Scarf Hair Moist Pack is one of those must have items I don’t want to be without. If I’m on stuck on a tropical island somewhere just make sure I have an endless supply of Heavy Metal Magazine, concealer, cheek stain, and Etude House Silk Scarf Hair Moist Pack and I should be a ok to go.

Do you think water will be terribly hard to come during the zombie apocalypse? I sure hope not as you definitely need some water to use Etude House Silk Scarf Hair Moist Pack as it seems like one of those things you’ll want to have around during the zombie plague. You know, when you’re running from zombies, you have hopes someone will slow down the action so your hair bounces gently as you run screaming away and it looks all soft, smooth, and frizz free, you know what I mean?

Makeup Packaging I Love!

Jill Stuart Valentine's Day Collection Heart Gloss Trio 3

I realize I’ve spent a good deal of my makeup life placing a ton of importance on packaging. It’s what makes beauty and makeup so very appealing to me. Don’t get me wrong you can slap a shimmer eyeshadow in a basic black pot and I’d be drawn to it like a magnet! But just the opposite holds true of say a boring matte! Place an uneventful muddy matte shade in gorgeous packaging and I instantly need to have it.

Perhaps I’m a bit of a magpie. Collecting useless makeup just because it has pretty packaging! Of course, that’s not always the case. Sometimes we really get lucky and not only get a lipstick with a gorgeous formula but also one that comes in stunning packaging.

As I grow older I find myself becoming more jaded and I’m not necessarily all “grabby hands” with makeup just because it has beautiful packaging. Let’s face it Milani Cosmetics has some of the worst packaging around but some of the very nicest makeup, hello have you tried their blush? Awful packaging, great formula!
