I’ve been on my little CC Cream adventure lately and the latest one I tried was Secret Key Let Me Know CC Cream SPF 50 PA+++. Secret Key is a relatively new brand and I haven’t tried a ton of their products but a CC Cream seemed like a great place to start.
This like most of the CC Creams popping up in Korea promises a naked skin effect. In fact this is a fairly accurate description of these newer CC Creams formulas as they typically come in a single shade that self adjusts to a variety of skin tones in a lighter texture than you’d find in a BB Cream.
I personally recommend CC Creams for those with already good, blemish-free skin who want to perfect but not necessarily cover.
Read ahead for more details.
I’m loving It’s Skin Mini Tint Gloss! So much so I may need to go back and haul a few shades of this adorable little gloss. I picked this up in Mango Syrup recently and really didn’t expect much. But gosh, I was utterly gobsmacked how gorgeously this little gloss performs.
I’m actually just now discovering the joys of It’s Skin and so far I’m quite happy with the brand.
Take a look at this little Muse Approved gloss!
Etude House recently introduced a Dear Girls Collection which includes a new Dear Girls Lip Balm. Etude House Dears Girls Lip Balm, as cute as it is, is simply a repackaged version of Etude House’s Lip Perfume which I absolutely adore.
Off topic of the lip balm but I’m very EAGER to get my tube of Etude House Dear Girls Be Clear Moisturizer which I had a friend pick up for me in Korea (I should have just got it from E-bay as it would have probably arrived faster, now I’m left antsy to try it!).
Anyway…I’ll save that for my review when it arrives right now let’s discuss Etude House Dear Girls Lip Balm!
Jill Stuart Jelly Blush is a new mousse-like blush that was released in Japan for Summer 2013. It’s available in five shade selections and quite reminiscent of Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color.
I actually expected it to be WAY more shimmery than it is as the texture was so darn similar to Jelly Eye Color and we all know how sparkly Jelly Eye Color is right?
I was very excited about this blush launch as the product isn’t quite like anything I’ve seen before texture wise in a blush.

I’m unsure how many of you are cleansing water fans but Etude House I’m Blooming Clear Cleansing Water is a new one you want wish to explore.
I’m kinda on the fence about cleansing waters myself. I absolutely adore Mandom Cleansing Water but I honestly, can’t say that I use it as much as I thought I would. I think of Cleansing Water as an easier way to QUICKLY remove my makeup but not necessarily an end all way to do so. I prefer cleansing oil and a good foaming cleanser over water to be honest.
Let’s take a look at the I’m Blooming Clear Cleansing Water and see how it stands up.
Holika Holika Face 2 Change Moist Cushion BB Cream SPF 50 is a new cream foundation product that resembles the Amore Pacific Color Control Cushion Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ I recently posted on.
This is a popular concept at the moment in Korea and many brands are releasing their own versions. If anything at all the consistency is more of a creamy mousse versus an actual cream foundation. The texture is really quite interesting!
Have a look!
Etude House I’m Blooming Moisture Cleansing Foam is one of several new skincare products that Etude House launched in Korean in a new I’m Blooming Collection.
These products are supposedly 100% organic and natural and ideal for a gentle cleansing experience.

Maybelline Pure BB Mineral Watergel has gotten its fair share of raves upon its release in Japan earlier this Spring. I really liked the original Maybelline Pure BB Mineral formula so I curious about BB Watergel formula.
I’m glad curiosity got the better of me as I really like this.

Sometimes you have those days that your eyes need a little pick me. That’s when I reach for Skin Food Facial Ice Vita Cooling Stick. Skin Food Facial Ice Vita Cooling Stick is a moisturizing, cooling, and very refreshing stick moisturizer that you can use in the AM, PM, or on the go to depuff eyes while giving them some much needed moisture quickly and easily.
Now it won’t take the place of your favorite eye cream it will however, be a great little pick me up if your eyes need a little depuffing action during the day!
How freaking adorable are the Face Shop Love Me EX Love Mark Tint? The fact they have an adorable lip shaped sponge stamp that allows you to “stamp” the tint into place is too sweet!
It’s probably completely unconventional but I think it’s cute as all hell!
See how it works after the jump!
P.S. There’s Michael Socha news after the jump fan girls (and guys).
I recently purchased Innisfree Mineral Perfect Concealer in the hopes it would be a creamy, emollient concealer for under my eyes. It’s actually marked as more of a facial concealer but honestly, I don’t really use concealer on my face so I thought I’d just attempt a test out under my eyes.
Here are a few thoughts!
Lavshuca Aqua Drops Rouge Lipstick was launched earlier in Winter 2012 I believe. Housed in a pink tin tube with a heart imprint on the tip these cute little lipsticks provide color and moisture with an almond oil infused formula.

Hada Labo BB Moist Cream is a gel foundation that contains Hyaluronic Acid which makes it an ideal pick for drier skin. It deserves to be mentioned I have a love/hate relationship with this product and I can’t rightfully say why that is. All in all the formula is rather nice but I think the “BB” in the title automatically makes me associate it with a BB Cream and that it isn’t.
Let’s take a look!
I recently purchased two of the three new Etude House I’m Blooming Mists in the Brightening Mist and Deep Moisture Mist formulas. These actually launched earlier last month in Korea but they have started popping up all around a variety of E-bay shops so I decided it was time to indulge and review.
I’m a huge facial mist person particularly in the Summer so I quickly added these to my list of items to be tried.
Here are some thoughts!
