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!

Biore Aroma Collection Pore Strips Happy Grapefruit & Romantic Rose Review

Biore Aroma Collection Pore Strips Happy Grapefruit Romantic Rose 003

Biore released their Resort Nose Strips in the Summer of 2010. Seriously, what’s better than sitting around with a nose strip on than one that’s like a tropical vacation! These scented nose strips whisked you away to a private paradise as they dug deep into your pores to remove those pesky blackheads.

Hmmm maybe it was a tropical paradise for your blackheads rather than for you.

Either way, aromatherapy in nose strips, can I get a hells yes?

This year, two new scented nose strips have arrived in Japan.

Take a look, they aren’t tropical island paradises but they do bring some fun fruity, floral notes to your nose strip world!
