Laneige Snow Radiant Blusher Review

I was browsing around the Laneige site a few weeks ago and I came across the The Secret of the Snow Crystal Snow Radiant Blushers. Sounds like an epic motion picture! Now playing The Secret of the Snow Crystal starring Bai Ling!

I’m not entirely sure if these were from the Holiday Collection or not and after much discussion and debate with a friend we decided that maybe they were something available from the Korean side of Laneige only!

Anyway!

I ended up getting the entire three that were released because they simply reminded me of MAC Mineralized Skinfinish and I rock Mineralized Skinfinish so that meant I’d be sure to shower love all over these!

These were about the same cost as an MSF and honestly they have the potential for converting non MSF users. Some folk hate Mineralized Skinfinish because they are glittery and shimmery. A wide range of the colors released thus far have contained chunky bits of glitter and not everyone likes to hose themselves down with glitter the way the Muse does!

Those of you who may have ranted that MAC’s powders have some major shimmer will be delighted to know that these perform the way you probably hoped for from MAC. They highlight, create a soft glow on your face, and enhance your blush minus the shimmer and glitter.

The powder is soft and silky and easy to blend. The effect that these create is what I call a sort of photo finish glow. You can use these on natural bare skin or over your blush. I personally like to use them over my blush. You can also contour areas of your face for extra highlighting if you prefer.

I think they are quite a nifty powder to add to your beauty arsenal and a wonderful alternative if you’re not loving the amount of shimmer you get from a MAC Mineralized Skinfinish!

Laneige Spring Collection 2008: Snow Bloom

laneige top img

Laneige’s Spring Collection has launched in Korea and is making it’s way across the Asian board. Most of the Laneige sites haven’t yet been updated with the new collection but it is out and available in Korea (lucky you if you live there!)!

It’s quite a beautiful collection!

Although, I want some of it I may refrain as I haven’t even dug into my Winter Collection from Laneige yet!

The collection consists of a loose powder, eyeshadow palette, and blush palette! The packaging is quite beautiful and I’m having a hard time not purchasing all of it!

I’m not sure which Asian countries are getting the update aside from Korea and China. I’m also unsure what the import to Singapore will be and if available the price range as sadly Singapore gets hit with a bit of a price jack.

The Loose Powder 30,000 KRW (approximately $31-$33 USD or so). The blusher carries the same price tag while the eyeshadow palette is a big lower in price at 28,000 KRW (approximately $29-31 USD).

Expect to pay a raise of about $9 -$11 USD per item online. I’m noticing the powder popping up online for $39-40 USD and the blush and eyeshadow palettes at around the same.

Point makeup instructions are available on the Korean site if you want to know what was used on the model and how to achieve the look.

Overall, another beautiful offering from Laneige!

Longing for a Clio Update

baza popup
One of my fav brands in the cosmetic world is a little Korean brand that goes by the name Clio (Actually it’s an Italian brand thats sold exclusively in Korea! Go firgure!).

Clio hasn’t updated it’s site since it’s Fall 2007 Purple Collection and I’m longing rather badly (and hopeful) for a Spring Collection of some kind!

I thought I’d drag you all into my melancholy and let you relive some of my old Clio posts!

Enjoy!

Laneige Slide Compact in Light Pink

case

ZOMG! How much do you love the baby pink slide compact from Laneige? I freaking adore this thing!

I have the standard boring blue slide compact but I so want the baby pink one as it goes so well with my iPod and iPhone!

Ooooo so pretty!
sss

This compact is so geeky chic! I really like the formula of the moisture foundation plus it has SPF which makes me a happy Muse and now even better we got the awesome pink sliding compact!

The Muse needs this!

Cyber Colors Jewel Amour Eyeshadows

Cyber Color is a Korean brand that’s pretty much available all over Asia such as Singapore, Japan, Etc…

It’s a pretty inexpensive brand of cosmetic and I have some of their shadows and can say they are pretty pigmented for the price!

Sasa just got in some of the new Holiday Collection Eyeshadows which are entitled Jewel Amour. I must say I am pretty tempted by these and they look yummie!

Cyber Color Jewel Amour Eyeshadows Available from Sasa.com
000001025561n

Some colors that are tempting me:

Amethyst
1025560c

Aquamarine
1025561c

Peridot
1025562c

Citrine
1025571c

These are a whopping $11.30 which is quite expensive as they are about 75% cheaper if you purchase them in store but I have a funny feeling after the holidays they’ll be marked down! So as tempting as they are do wait on these if you’re wanting them as they’ll be on clearance sooner or later!

Although, the colors are making me want them right now rather badly!
