Aritaum Honey Melting Tint Review & Swatches

Aritaum Honey Melting Tint Lip Balm

Aritaum Honey Melting Tint is a new tinted lip balm that launched in Korea in 10 shades. Being the tinted lip balm junkie that I am I instantly wanted to grab a few of these so how I ended up with only one is shocking to say the least.

I guess I was playing it safe because I did only purchase one Aritaum Honey Melting Tint and let me tell you, at first, I was glad I only got the one because I didn’t like the formula.

Something happened though!

Etude House Lock ‘n Summer Cushion Blusher Review & Swatches

Etude House Lock n Summer Cushion Blushers

Cushion blush (and foundation) are on the rise in Asia and the new Etude House Lock ‘n Summer Cushion Blusher is my first experience with cushion blush!

The Etude House Lock ‘n Summer 2014 Collection includes two new Cushion Blusher shade that I recently purchased. I’ve had plenty of good times with cushion foundation and bb cream but cushion blush is really a new experience for me. I noticed that a few brands in Korea are starting to introduce cushion blush so by Fall I’m sure you’ll see a lot more of it from a variety of Asian brands! I suspect the new Etude House Lock ‘n Summer Cushion Blusher is here to stay as they’ll likely repackage and re-release it at some point to the permanent Etude House Collection. So if you don’t haul it now, no worries it’ll likely be available for a while.
