Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cinema City CC Cream Review & Swatches

Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cinema City CC Cream

Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cinema City CC Cream has a cult following in Korea. Well, actually the Too Cool for School brand in general has quite a fan base! I’m actually, I can’t believe I’m saying this, not that big a fan of Too Cool for School.

I’ve tried a lot of their products but I’ve failed to be impressed by them.


But perhaps the Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cinema City CC Cream will change my mind?


As Coty Acquires Bourjois Paris Here’s My Wish List!

Bourjois Paris

Coty has acquires Bourjois Paris! Apparently Coty completed the acquisition earlier this Spring so does this mean we can has Bourjous back in the US again please?

Bourjous Paris is probably one of the makeup brands I miss the most! I always ask my best friend Libby in the UK to send me the latest releases and of course, I can grab items from ASOS but it just isn’t the same as when it used to be readily available at Sephora and Ulta.

For now, as Coty gets busy with Bourjois, here’s my wish list of items I want to try and hope like mad we’ll get them in the US soon!

How Japanese and Korean Makeup and Beauty is Influencing the US Market

Japanese and Korean Makeup and Beauty

I was testing out Lancome Shine Lover Lipstick this week and I was thinking how Japanese and Korean makeup and beauty is influencing the US Market lately! I’m seeing so many products popping up lately inspired by makeup products inspired by Korean beauty products in particular.

Recently, Lisa Elridge became the new Lancome Makeup Creative Director and you can see many of the releases from the brand such as Shine Lover Lipstick and the new Miracle Cushion Liquid Cushion Compact are very much inspired by products popular in the Asia market. Apparently Lisa has been very much inspired by Korean beauty lately!

Don’t get me wrong the US has long since been inspired by the Asian market but lately I’m seeing it even more in the beauty market.
