When you’ve been around as long as your Muse (way back, around the time of dinosaurs) you’ll find yourself getting bored with the normal hum-drum makeup adventure. Maybe you’ll find yourself wanting to explore new lines of makeup from Japan, Sweden, Germany, or England.
Here’s 10 Great European and Asian Cosmetics Sites to procrastinate on and drool over.

After my fiasco with toilet paper smelling cleanser from Etude House I was feeling ever so scared to crack open my bottle of Etude House Cleansing Dream Cleansing Oil.
Would it smell like toilet paper too?
God please no!
I do wonder, is it too taboo to talk about TP on my makeup blog? You know, toilet paper.
Oh Muse why are you bringing up such an intimate thing like toilet paper?
Well…it took me a very long time but I finally figured out what Etude House Eye and Lip Remover smells like. It smells like toilet paper! Um ok step back for a second and let me explain it smells like unused toilet paper, don’t want anyone getting the wrong idea here. You know I think Charmin is the TP that has that cloying powdery floral cheap scent going on…am I making sense?
I absolutely loved the Etude House Eye and Lip Remover but the scent totally murdered me. It was cheap, it was powdery, and it had a whole lot of floral going on. No likey. It took ages to finally pinpoint the scent and finally a light bulb went off and I realized, “hey this smells like toilet paper!”
Oh..I got long winded there for a second. I’m telling you this because it’s generally made me scared to try skin care bits and bobs from Etude House as a few items sport this same scent.
I took the plunge and gave in to purchase Etude House Cloud Bubble Foam and yes you guessed it, it smells like toilet paper.
I dunno when but Etude House released this really cute collection of Happy Tea Time Cleansing Foams. The Muse happens to be obsessed with a good cuppa tea so these simply delighted her. I was really good and only indulged in the Peach Tea Cleansing Foam as I wasn’t sure how my skin would react with these. As per the norm, cleansing foam seems to really make my skin tight and dry feeling after use so I was naturally wary about indulging in more than one.
But honestly I was simply gagging to get all of ‘em! They have Lemon Tea, Green Tea, Etc….so cute! From what I understand the “teas” aren’t meant for any specific skin type and can be used by anyone who wants a squeaky clean face.
