BRTC Rice Stem Cell Mask Review

BRTC Rice Stem Cell Mask 003

BRTC, a cult favorite BB Cream creator, is known in Korea for some of its great Blemish Balm creams as well as their great skincare.

Having tried many of their BB Creams and skincare products I felt very confident that I’d love their sheet masks but so far I’m terribly shocked I haven’t had any great success with them.

I checked out one of the Multi-Vital earlier this month and disliked it and recently I’ve been using their Rice Stem Cell Mask and have experienced similiar disappointment.

What the heck?

Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks Review & Swatches

Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks 004

I feel like I don’t have nearly enough golden peach shades in my makeup life like Tarte’s Glisten.

Isn’t that an amazing shade of glowing blush?

With that note in mind I asked a friend of mine who lives in Tokyo to purchase me Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks, a new glowing blush from Lunasol that promises a radiant finish.

The interesting packaging, allure of the color and promise of radiance were all key selling points plus the Lunasol name on the box makes this one a tempting little purchase.

Take a look!

My Beauty Diary Blooming Garden Lip Essence Review & Swatches

at counter

Cult favorite, Taiwanese sheet mask extraordinaire My Beauty Diary likes to venture outside of the realms of mere sheet masks every once in a while. Last Spring, they introduced a small little stash of skincare products and this Spring they venture into beauty.

I mean I imagine Batman gets tired of fighting crime every once and a while and maybe thought about heading up his local MAC counter so why can’t My Beauty Diary switch things up and take a breather from sheet masks and maybe, I dunno, dabble around with lip balm?

Holika Holika Medi-Medi Vita C Pack Review

Holika Holika Medi Medi Vita C Pack 001

Holika Holika is a popular brand that’s taking Korean by storm courtesy the Harry Potter-like marketing of the products and stores.

Their skincare comes in potion-like bottles and jars that has a witch-y kinda look to it. Very cute in my opinion but that goes without saying when it comes to Korean brands.

Of course, they also have color cosmetics as well in equally delightful packaging (and CNBLUE slapped into a few commercials helps things along dramatically, pause for fan girl squeal! You know you want members of CNBLUE applying your makeup, don’t be lying!).

I was curious about the skincare but I had my doubts about how effective it would be considering this line is geared more towards a younger generation of makeup and skincare users.

But I indulged in the Holika Holika Medi-Medi Vita C Pack Skin Brightening Wash Off Mask since I have my little obsessions with whitening/brightening products.

Let’s take a look!
