Holika Holika is a Korean brand with a Harry Potter-ish kinda theme. The stores are decked out in shades of purple and black, employee uniforms have a witch-y vibe, and the brand takes lotions and potions to a new, magical level. I think the entire magic, witch, goth theme draws alot of attention and gives the brand its own little niche plus chalk up the traditional kawaii packaging that Korean and Asian brands in general embrace and you have yourself a happy helping of fabulous for makeup junkies.
I’ve reviewed a few Holika Holika products and today I hauled out the Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly Blusher that I picked up a several weeks ago. This blush will remind you of the packaging of the Aqua Petit Jelly I reviewed a few months ago.
Take a look!
It’s been a little bit of time since my last Jill Stuart purchase. I find the collections and colors a bit repetitive however I was intrigued by their new Prism Carat Eye Shadow & Base Duo that released with their Fall 2011 Collection. I asked my best friend, who lives in Japan, to pick up two of these out of sheer curiosity!
Let’s take a look a the promo images until these arrive in my mailbox and I can review!
The injection of the Kai Group Pallete for Liquid Foundation into my daily regime was a no brainer for me. I make a proper mess when I am putting on BB Cream or concealers. Normally I’m mixing them on my arm and that’s a bad idea because I end up getting it on my clothes, other parts of my body, my vanity…everywhere.
This handy little tool is an essential if you’re an arm mixer!
The downfall of many of my beauty purchases, great packaging. Damn…it’s the packaging that gets me every time.
In the case of Princess Carnival Facial Sheet Masks I fell rather hard for the cute packaging but sometimes packaging is the only awesome thing about a product.
I could’ve been Asian in another life as I am simply obsessed with whitening products of any kind. The Asian market is flooded with an array of various whitening, brightening products to keep skin milky and fair however the US market not so much. Although this year I am seeing an array of 50+ SPF products, skin tone correctors, etc…so perhaps we are finally catching on to the whitening trend that’s taken Asia by storm for many, many years.
In my quest for less duller skin I purchased Skin Food Fermented Pomegranate Whitening Sleep Mask. Why does the name make me feel like I’m in the basement making illegal liquor? This sleeping mask promises whiter, brighter skin.
Does it work?
