Secret Key Let Me Know CC Cream Review & Swatches

Secret Key Let Me Know CC Cream 4

I’ve been on my little CC Cream adventure lately and the latest one I tried was Secret Key Let Me Know CC Cream SPF 50 PA+++. Secret Key is a relatively new brand and I haven’t tried a ton of their products but a CC Cream seemed like a great place to start.

This like most of the CC Creams popping up in Korea promises a naked skin effect. In fact this is a fairly accurate description of these newer CC Creams formulas as they typically come in a single shade that self adjusts to a variety of skin tones in a lighter texture than you’d find in a BB Cream.

I personally recommend CC Creams for those with already good, blemish-free skin who want to perfect but not necessarily cover.

It’s Skin Mini Tint Gloss Review & Swatches

Its Skin Mini Tint Gloss

I’m loving It’s Skin Mini Tint Gloss! So much so I may need to go back and haul a few shades of this adorable little gloss. I picked this up in Mango Syrup recently and really didn’t expect much. But gosh, I was utterly gobsmacked how gorgeously this little gloss performs.

I’m actually just now discovering the joys of It’s Skin and so far I’m quite happy with the brand.

Take a look at this little Muse Approved gloss!

Etude House Dear Girls Lip Balm Review & Swatches

Etude House Dear Girls Lip Balm Spring 2013

Etude House recently introduced a Dear Girls Collection which includes a new Dear Girls Lip Balm. Etude House Dears Girls Lip Balm, as cute as it is, is simply a repackaged version of Etude House’s Lip Perfume which I absolutely adore.

Off topic of the lip balm but I’m very EAGER to get my tube of Etude House Dear Girls Be Clear Moisturizer which I had a friend pick up for me in Korea (I should have just got it from E-bay as it would have probably arrived faster, now I’m left antsy to try it!).

Anyway…I’ll save that for my review when it arrives right now let’s discuss Etude House Dear Girls Lip Balm!

It’s Skin Macaron Lip Balm Review

Its Skin Macaron Lip Balm 1

I can’t go to Tous Les Jours without getting a Croque Monsieur and at least a half a dozen macarons. It’s Skin Macaron Lip Balm though contains FAR fewer calories.

Just sayin’! Macarons are my downfall, danger, danger, danger! This lip balm is far safer.
