Etude House Aloha Dear Darling Tint 001

Aloha! from humid New York.

I really wish I was saying Aloha from the deck of a fancy hotel in Hawaii with a cool drink that has a umbrella tucked up in it but sadly, this one is coming from the patio of a cafe on a humid night in New York. The ocean, the beach, little umbrellas, and lei are far away from this smog induced city.

However……

Ta da…I have Etude House Aloha Dear Darling Tint in my makeup bag therefore I am magically transported to the Korean version of Hawaii! Actually Korean Hawaii is alot nicer than regular Hawaii as the Korean version includes hotties like Hyun Joong prancing around shirtless on the beach.

Wicked super right?

Technically this is the best I can do with Hyun Joong prancing on a beach, cut me a break ok?

Etude House Aloha Glitter Sherbet Eyes Review, Swatches, Photos

Etude House Aloha Glitter Sherbet Eyes 001

Etude House has released a limited edition collection for Summer entitled Aloha. This is actually a really special release as it includes a bronzing tint.

Listen, anything having to do with bronzing is unheard of in Asia…! This is some serious shiz peeps.

No but seriously bronzing collections are a rarity in Asia so I thought the Etude House Aloha Collection was quite a little novelty plus the really cute Hawaiian inspired packaging and interesting products were worthy of a beg and a plead to a friend in Korea to grab them for me.

Today I’ll be showing you the Etude House Aloha Glitter Sherbet Eyes which are available in three sparkling shades.

Check ‘em!

Dr Jart Dew Drop Blemish Base BB Cream Blue Label Review, Swatches, Photos

Dr Jart Dew Drop Blemish Base BB Cream Blue Label 4

Since Dr Jart released Water Fuse Beauty Balm on Sephora I’ve gotten several hundred e-mails asking me if it was anything like the Dr Jart Dew Drop BB Cream. I think someone had even commented on my review post of the Water Fuse and said it was the same product as the Dew Drop Blemish Base.

I think alot of you that may already own the Dew Drop version were curious whether you needed to haul the US version.

I’m here to say the two products are completely different right down to the SPF levels each contains, the color, and the formula.

The Skin Food Black Raspberry Saeng-gi Pack Review

The Skin Food Black Raspberry Saeng gi Pack 001

I think I’m coming to terms with the fact that I may be a mask junkie. Hoarding facial masks like they are going out of style or something, applying them nightly, convincing myself that I look whiter, brighter, more youthful…

Yeah, all the signs of a mask junkie.

I’ve been using The Skin Food Black Raspberry Saeng-gi Pack for ages since I get a little high off the scent. This is part of Skin Food’s Raspberry range and you might remember the eye cream I reviewed a while ago from the collection. This has a strange freshly turned dirt, herbal scent going on that I find terribly addicting. Some folks say it smells like Chinese medicine herbs but I don’t get that from it, I get freshly turned up dirt! Surprising since I’m fruity, sweet kinda girl and anything that’s remotely smells like stinky hippie is tossed into the bin…but this…I find soothing somehow.

What’s it do?

Does it work?

Etc…etc…!

Let’s see.
