Lavshuca Candy Pop Shadow Review & Swatches

Lavshuca Candy Pop Shadow

Ahh you might remember the Lavshuca Candy Pop Shadow from earlier this Spring which launched in Japan. These new single eyeshadows from Japanese brand Lavshuca are a step outside the normal palettes that Lavshuca traditionally releases.

The really unique thing is the fact they come in both matte and shimmer shades. Matte drugstore eyeshadow isn’t terribly common from brands like Lavshuca. I’m not a fan of matte finish myself but the idea of Lavshuca doing matte shades was intriguing.

In the end, I ended up with the sparkly shades hehe…! But I definitely think it’s a fresh step in a new direction for Japanese brands to embrace more matte shades of eyeshadow.

Let’s take a look!

Lululun Face Mask (White) Translucent Light Review

Lululun Face Mask

It’s a funny thing about facial masks I’ve tried SO many but can’t say I’ve tried a variety from Japan. In most cases my facial sheet masks come from either Korea or Taiwan. For all my love of Japanese makeup you’d think that I’d have tried more brands of facial sheet masks from Japan but that’s simply not the case.

Needless to say when I noticed the publicity that Lululun was getting in Japanese magazines I was quite curious about the brand and decided to order some of the masks and try them out.

Take a look!

Etude House Flower Moistfull Cream Review

Etude House Moistfull Flower Cream

Etude House Flower Moistfull Cream is a new variation added to the Etude House Moistfull Skincare Collection that’s formulated with Baobab Tree Extract to sooth dry, tired skin. Etude House Moistfull Flower Cream also contains Cherry Blossom Floral complex supposedly to nourish and sooth drier skin.

As much as I love the original Etude House Moistfull Cream I must admit the Flower version is my absolutely favorite, must have for drier skin at the moment.

I adore it!
