Banila Co is an interesting brand available exclusively in Korea. Some of the items they create are pretty brilliant and they have some sincerely wonderful eye palettes that I adore.
Most notable to the brand is their baked shadows and face powders. I have quite a few of their baked powders however none of their shadows so last year I went ahead and indulged in one. I’m actually happy I didn’t decided to grab several shades as I would normally do because the one shade I did try was a tad disappointing.
Take a peek!
Although a Korean brand, Banila Co has a Japanese calling this Winter with it’s new Tokyo Scandal Collection!
I can’t look at Banila Co lately without a new palette popping before my eyes. Obviously these are selling really well since Banila Co releases one every few months. The new Banila Co Collection, S Night Standing includes a brand new palette along with several other very interest pieces.
Jump ahead for a peek!
S Night Standing seems a little bit of a privy to Fall but it could also be a chic Summer Collection. The palette is a range of blues, pinks, and a few odd shades. It’s not one of the best palettes I’ve seen from Banila Co from the colors to the packaging but I think collector’s and fans alike will probably want to haul it regardless.
Here’s some of the release, also not pictured, two new nail shades are being released with these items!
Banila Co S Night Standing Eye Palette 22,000KRW
Banila Co Kiss Collector Color Fix Lipstick (S Night Standing packaging) 12,000KRW Each
Banila Co S Night Standing Marbleized Eye Shadow 12,000KRM Each
It’s quite a nice selection for collectors of Banila Co but nothing catches my interest or shouts out at me as a must have! Can probably safely skip it!
How about you?

In one of the largest collections I’ve seen to date from Banila Co, steps in Dear Flower. Banila Co Dear Flower is their late Spring release it appears and just in time too for the lovely weather ahead. Full of pastels and brighter shades of blush and lipstick this collection should appeal to those who like a little pop with softer colors!
I can’t believe I’m saying this but I think I’ll avoid this as I’m not feeling the love for pastels anymore. The Muse was loving the Shu Spring Collection and all those pretty girly light shades but at the moment I’m off the pastels.
Banila Co Dear Flower Palette consists of six pastel shades that look lovely enough but as I said far from appealing to this Muse!
Two new blushes that mimic MAC Beauty Powder Blush look very nice although colors do look a bit light and possibly chalky!
Three new lipsticks in the Dear Flower packaging. These are nice darker shades that give a bit of sizzle to contrast nicely with the lighter shades of the palette!
A luminous base adds a bit of a Spring time glow to face and cheeks!
Two brand new marble shadows which are kinda of a rerun. Banila Co is fond of putting our blue and green marble shadows over and over and over again. Very pretty but too much of the same is never a good thing!
Banila Co Dear Flower definitely looks like a nice little stash of goodies for the Spring but nothing attracts me overly much or cheers at me to pick it up so I’m happy sitting here staring at it all from my monitor. I look forward to seeing what Etude House next releases as Korean Collections of late have been a tiny bit boring.
If you are indulging you’ll be happy to know won is still converting beautifully to USD. With the economy slightly on the rise we may see it finally even out shortly but for now you’re getting an incredible deal.
What do you think?
