Etude House Summer Collection 2008: Sherbet Cool Party

etude+house

Etude House’s website has been updated with the Summer Collection. The collection does not contain any makeup items but concentrates solely on skincare! I was slightly disappointed to see that no cosmetics were included but after viewing the items released I was intrigued by a few so I’ll be picking these up shortly and reviewing them as soon as I can!

The skincare is relatively good and I’m actually seriously considered ditching Lush for it. I’ve tried a toner and a moisturizer and both were fantastic plus the price is ridiculously cheap! Sadly, I’m unsure of what the products contain as I can’t read the bottle but I’ve had no oily spots as I sometimes get with certain moisturizers. I imagine the alcohol content is relatively low or non existent in the products as I’ve had no problem with dry patches either!

Just the name of the new Collection has me giddy to try it out! Sherbet Cool Party! Wahoo sounds rather refreshing doesn’t it?

The products are range in price from 9,000 to 12,000 won which is a ridiculous low cost of $9-$12 USD and these are GOOD size products mind you!

I’m purchasing the entire line which includes a toner, a gel moisturizer, serum, and a few other bits!

With the promo images pimping out cool, refreshing images, icy pictures, and just general snowy pictures here and there I’m picturing each item to actually have some sort of “cooling” benefits for the hot, humid weather!

Laneige Summer 2008 Collection

Well lookiee what the Muse came across on the Laneige Singapore site!

tt

It’s the Summer Collection!

I was shocked to see the Laneige site had updated for Summer on the Singapore site only and not the Korean! I was thinking I’d see the update on the Korean site prior to any of the other global gateways!

Go Singapore (lately you guys have been really up to date with the cosmetic collections!)!

The release appears to be very small with some shadows and a lipstick but I’m unsure of all the details as of yet! As soon as I know I’ll definately keep you posted!

As always the promo model image is gorgeous! It’s a very edgy look they created using soft colors. I think perhaps the edge comes from the haircut the model is sporting!

I’m interested in getting my hands on some of this collection to review for you guys so stayed tuned!

On a side note I’m behind on comments please know I’ll get to them soon! Sorry for the delay! Life sometimes gets in the way of blogging on occasion! Love you all!

Banila Co "Blue" Summer Collection

Blues and Aquas are hot this season and one of the Muse’s favorite Korean brands jumps right on that bandwagon and takes blue to a smoking hot level!

Check out the Blue Collection from Banila Co! Sweet right? I’m loving the promo images for this one and I’ll definately be indulging in most of the collection!

Six colors of a cream eyeshadows are being released entitled Eye Love Aqua Shadow. W8,500 per a color which rounds out to a little over $8 USD! I’m particular in love with the colors Aqua Ice and Mint Ice!

Also released are the Lip Love Aqua Gloss which is available in 4 shades! Each color is W8,000 which converts to a little less than $8 USD! I love the nice natural glossy color on the model’s lips! Yum!

Etude House Moistfull Mask Review

I love Asian brands.

Here in the US we aren’t privy to many popular products available within various Asian countries such as Japan and Korea. One such product that isn’t as popular here as it is abroad are facial masks. Face masks are a very popular item that come in a number of different formulas and are available from many popular brands such as Kose, Kanebo, and in the case of my review, Etude House.

What exactly is a face mask?

I think here in the US we are pretty much conditioned to associate a face mask with something you’d get in a tube. Something you’d apply and either peel off, scrub off, or wash off. The most popular form of facial masks from Asia are actual masks! As in a mask with holes cut into it for your mouth and eyes. The masks are pre-soaked in different skin treatments such as whitening agents, lotions for dry skin, moisturizers for wrinkles, etc….different masks cater to different skin problems! Each mask is made of a linen like paper that is shaped and contoured to your face. You leave the mask on for anywhere from 5-10 minutes and allow the contents of the mask to sink into your face. It’s a beautifully relaxing experience that’s also very beneficial to your face. I’ve found masks are very helpful for my dry skin in the winter!

You might recognize the brand Etude House if you’re from Korea or you might remember it from a blog entry I did recently! Etude House makes a line of skincare entitled Moistfull. It’s a rather wonderful line of product with a nice, inexpensive price tag!

I’m particularly in love with the masks! The masks are packed full of a moisturizing lotion that makes your skin feel positively spoiled for 5 to 10 minutes with long term benefits! The mask is heavily saturated with a combination of lotion and serum that will make any dry, flaky patches on your face disappear!

I can’t begin to describe to you how amazing the mask feels when it’s on and how wonderful your skin feels after use! The mask fits perfectly over your face and I adore how it contours the shape of my under eye perfectly. Why is that important? This is the perfect solution for getting more moisture under my very dry eyes!

After 10 minutes of leaving the mask on my skin feels cool, refreshed, wonderfully soft, and moisturized! I normally do this treatment before bed while reading a few chapters of a book. The best part is when I wake up in the morning my face is literally glowing and I feel like I can go without makeup!

Etude House Moistfull Facial Masks definately get a hearty Muse Approval for purchase if you can find them! But fear not if you’re unable to locate them you can always use any number of the facial masks available from different brands such as Kose, Kanebo, Sofina, and more!

Facial Masks are a wonderful, and for me, essential part of good skin care!

Do you use facial masks?

What are you favorite brands?
