Etude House Aloha Glitter Sherbet Eyes Review, Swatches, Photos

Etude House Aloha Glitter Sherbet Eyes 001

Etude House has released a limited edition collection for Summer entitled Aloha. This is actually a really special release as it includes a bronzing tint.

Listen, anything having to do with bronzing is unheard of in Asia…! This is some serious shiz peeps.

No but seriously bronzing collections are a rarity in Asia so I thought the Etude House Aloha Collection was quite a little novelty plus the really cute Hawaiian inspired packaging and interesting products were worthy of a beg and a plead to a friend in Korea to grab them for me.

Today I’ll be showing you the Etude House Aloha Glitter Sherbet Eyes which are available in three sparkling shades.

Check ‘em!

Dr Jart Dew Drop Blemish Base BB Cream Blue Label Review, Swatches, Photos

Dr Jart Dew Drop Blemish Base BB Cream Blue Label 4

Since Dr Jart released Water Fuse Beauty Balm on Sephora I’ve gotten several hundred e-mails asking me if it was anything like the Dr Jart Dew Drop BB Cream. I think someone had even commented on my review post of the Water Fuse and said it was the same product as the Dew Drop Blemish Base.

I think alot of you that may already own the Dew Drop version were curious whether you needed to haul the US version.

I’m here to say the two products are completely different right down to the SPF levels each contains, the color, and the formula.

The Skin Food Black Raspberry Saeng-gi Pack Review

The Skin Food Black Raspberry Saeng gi Pack 001

I think I’m coming to terms with the fact that I may be a mask junkie. Hoarding facial masks like they are going out of style or something, applying them nightly, convincing myself that I look whiter, brighter, more youthful…

Yeah, all the signs of a mask junkie.

I’ve been using The Skin Food Black Raspberry Saeng-gi Pack for ages since I get a little high off the scent. This is part of Skin Food’s Raspberry range and you might remember the eye cream I reviewed a while ago from the collection. This has a strange freshly turned dirt, herbal scent going on that I find terribly addicting. Some folks say it smells like Chinese medicine herbs but I don’t get that from it, I get freshly turned up dirt! Surprising since I’m fruity, sweet kinda girl and anything that’s remotely smells like stinky hippie is tossed into the bin…but this…I find soothing somehow.

What’s it do?

Does it work?

Etc…etc…!

Let’s see.

Holika Holika Moisture Petit BB SPF 30 PA++ Review, Swatches, Photos

Holika Holika Moisture Petit BB SPF 30 PA++ 11

Holika Holika is a newer brand that launched in Korea. The brand is starting to gain an online awareness now so you’ll see it pretty much popping up everywhere as it begins to go viral.

Part of its popularity could be due to the fact CN BLUE endorses the brand or the fact that it has a certain Harry Potter/Gothic witchy deal going on. Store employees are all dressed like witches and products all have a boil, boil, toil and trouble potion vibe going on.

I chose to believe everyone is flocking to the store because they really dig Jung Yong Hwa in manliner and they feel bad he didn’t get the guy errrr girl in You’re Beautiful. Let’s give Yong Hwa all our money because he was the odd man out in You’re Beautiful! Awwww! Poor Yong Hwa! Boy, you can put your dupetastic, Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes Mascara look-a-like mascara on my lashes any damn time you want!

See? Korean brands know what we women want! A cute Asian boy leaning in to apply our makeup that wears liner better than us! Yes Siree bring that on now!

The brand has a line of Petit BB Creams available in five formulas. I believe they dubbed them Petit due to the small tubes they come in. I really like the size because I find it hard getting through BB Creams since 1. I have over 30-40 of ‘em and 2. they are so pigmented a single tube can literally last you into the next millennium.

Baviphat Magic Band Lumy Lovely Eau de Toilette Review

Baviphat Magic Band Lumy Lovely Eau de Toilette 001

What was that tag line from Field of Dreams? Build it and they will come? I need to steal that for cheap Asian Eau de Toilettes….”Make them and she will buy them…” That’s me, sucker punched into purchasing really bad EDT sprays from Korea.

I keep buying into cheapie EDT sprays because they are so damn cute but OMG they smell like…
