Aritaum Honey Melting Tint Review & Swatches

Aritaum Honey Melting Tint Lip Balm

Aritaum Honey Melting Tint is a new tinted lip balm that launched in Korea in 10 shades. Being the tinted lip balm junkie that I am I instantly wanted to grab a few of these so how I ended up with only one is shocking to say the least.

I guess I was playing it safe because I did only purchase one Aritaum Honey Melting Tint and let me tell you, at first, I was glad I only got the one because I didn’t like the formula.

Something happened though!

Etude House Lock ‘n Summer Cushion Blusher Review & Swatches

Etude House Lock n Summer Cushion Blushers

Cushion blush (and foundation) are on the rise in Asia and the new Etude House Lock ‘n Summer Cushion Blusher is my first experience with cushion blush!

The Etude House Lock ‘n Summer 2014 Collection includes two new Cushion Blusher shade that I recently purchased. I’ve had plenty of good times with cushion foundation and bb cream but cushion blush is really a new experience for me. I noticed that a few brands in Korea are starting to introduce cushion blush so by Fall I’m sure you’ll see a lot more of it from a variety of Asian brands! I suspect the new Etude House Lock ‘n Summer Cushion Blusher is here to stay as they’ll likely repackage and re-release it at some point to the permanent Etude House Collection. So if you don’t haul it now, no worries it’ll likely be available for a while.

As a self confessed collector and rabid fangirl of chubby lip pencils I was excited when Bourjous Paris introduced their own lip crayon a year or so ago! Bourjois Paris Color Boost Lip Crayon has been on my wish list for a while now so I recently pulled the plug when I did an ASOS.com and grabbed one up!

Lunasol Lighting Eyes Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Lunasol Lighting Eyes Eyeshadow

Lunasol Lighting Eyes Eyeshadow, not to be confused with the W Lighting Eyes Eyeshadow released with the Lunasol 15th Anniversary Summer 2014 Collection that I recently reviewed, is a line of single color shades designed to create a natural eye look.

I’m really all about simple, natural eye looks lately! Bobbi Brown Sand Dune is one of my favorite ways to capture the natural look but right now I’m really loving these Lunasol Lighting Eyes Eyeshadow singles just as much!
