HadaLabo Gokujyun Moisture Milk

Hada Labo Gokujyun Moisture Milk is product I get asked about more than Hadalabo Gokujyn Hyaluronic Acid Lotion. That’s saying something considering how incredibly popular the lotion is.

I think people are just confused why they might need the milk when they already use the lotion or what order should you use the products in, etc…

Etude House Play Colour Eyes Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Etude House Play Colour Eyes Eyeshadow Palette17

The Etude House Play Colour Eyes Eyeshadow Palette is newly launched in Korea and available in two shade selections that includes ten eyeshadows each.

Sweet! Etude House doesn’t really do massive palettes like this and outside of the Etude House Aloha Tropical Eyeshadow released in 2011 with the Aloha Collection (this included 48 eyeshadows! The biggest palette Etude House has ever done) which sold out very fast there hasn’t really been a palette bigger than a five pan! However, this past Fall Etude House brought out the Flowering Eyes Palette, a first for the brand, that include ten shades of rosy eyeshadow.

Etude House So Chic Play Play Colour Eyes Eyeshadow Palette

And bless be this Winter we get these new Etude House Play Colour Eyes Palettes that also include ten shadows. It’s rather novel to see Etude House doing these bigger eyeshadow palettes.

Magie Deco Cosme Decorte Makeup Coffret II Holiday 2013 Review & Swatches

Cosme Decorte Makeup Coffret Holiday 2013 1

The traditional Magie Deco Cosme Decorte Makeup Coffret II for Holiday 2013 launches earlier this month in Japan and features an affordable selection of Cosme Decorte products presented in a festive box for getting or gifting.

This set runs around $90 via a variety of retailers and this is quite a deal because typically Cosme Decorte Makeup is quite expensive purchasing single products so I find this is a nice way to grab some of their products without dropping a ton of cash.
