Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream Hydrating Colour Corrector Review & Swatches

Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream Hydrating Colour Corrector

The new Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream Hydrating Colour Corrector Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is a pleasant surprise indeed. I’ve been testing this for the past month and I must say it impressed me as much as Clinique’s BB Cream did.

If you’re shopping CC Creams at the moment and you’re just starting to get on board with this new trend I do recommend a trip to your Clinique counter to check this out. It’s a promising product!

Introducing Missha Signature Complexion Coordinating BB Cream

Missha Signature Complexion Coordinating BB Cream

Missha has two new Signature Complexion Coordinating BB Creams that recently released in Korea. At some point I’m sure Missha US will get these but we’ll have to be patient until that time!

These are on the higher end of Missha’s collection as each is around $20 each (that’s pricey by Missha’s standards) however, they appear to be quite a luxurious BB Cream. They are available in a white (which adjusts to skin tones) and beige color variation with two different formulas.

Take a look!

Holika Holika Real Butter Lip Balm Review

Holika Holika Real Butter Lip Balm

Well, Holika Holika Real Butter Lip Balm is the worst kind of packaging but I purchased it anyway because it brings me back to my makeup roots with its cute vintage slide packaging.

I dunno about you but lip slides like this were all the rage in my childhood. As we get older we begin to realize they are a germ-fest but when we’re young, for some reason, our innocent selves absolutely love the idea of a lip balm in a slide out tin. Shrug…who knows where that mentality comes from but even in older age they are still terribly appealing.

Etude House Eagle Owl Missing U Hand Cream Review

Etude House Missing U Hand Cream

If you’re a friend of mine you probably know that Etude House Missing U hand Cream follows me around wherever I go. It’s in my makeup bag, my tote, my purse, in my desk drawer, on my end table, in my wash room, on top of my desk, even in my kitchen….!

I LOVE these hand creams. Not only are they cute but they keep my cuticles nice and soft which results in no hang nails. If you’re a friend of mine you also know my terrible habit of picking my cuticles and peeling hang nails and gushing blood all over the place like a bad horror movie. What is about hang nails that makes you just want to pick them? Ugh! Not good!

These little hand creams are my solution to avoid picking.

Take a peek!

Nature Republic Tweety Collection

Nature Republic Tweety Collection

The Nature Republic Tweety Collection is SO freaking cute. Asian brands aren’t shy about collaborating with some great cartoons and I’m not shy about collecting all the collections I can that have Disney characters or other cartoon characters from my youth. DHC, Paul & Joe, and others have all launched collections featuring some of my favorite cartoons.

Tweety is possibly the cutest I’ve seen to date though.

Loving this!
