Shills Closer to You Concealer SPF 50 Review & Swatches

Shills Closer to You Concealer

Shills Closer to You Concealer is a LONG time favorite product of mine! Honestly, several years ago when I originally purchased it, as I recall, it didn’t contain an SPF 50 so of course, I was very excited that it actually had so much sun protection in the new formulation!

You NEED it!

4 Moisturizers from Korea I Really Want To Try

Korean Moisturizers

Ok, I admit it, I make little spreadsheets of skincare I want to try. I call them my Do Want lists. I basically have a spreadsheet for moisturizers, eye creams, and other skincare products that I want to try at some point. Most of them are gimmicky moisturizers that probably won’t change my life any time soon but one can hope that they’ll be amazing.

When it comes to Korean skincare my lemmings deepen because truly Asian brands promise the world when it comes to skincare and you utterly buy into that fact due to how fresh and incredible the promo models look in the advertisements.

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!
