Dr. Jart at Sephora BB Creams Come to the US Market

Dr Jart BB Cream Sephora

Finally the US is catching the BB Cream bug. I’ve been using BB Creams for about three or four years now. They are my sole foundation option simply because they are one of the few base products that don’t oxidize quickly on my skin. Add to the fact that they are super creamy and moisturizing for my dry skin and I’m a happy girl indeed.

If you’ve never tried a BB Cream or you simply don’t know what one is please visit an old post I did by clicking here to brush up on what a BB Cream is and does.

I’m really excited today to announce that Dr. Jart has brought his BB Creams to Sephora!

Check it!

Maybelline Eye Studio Color Explosion Duo

Maybelline Eye Studio Color Explosion Duo 2011

It’s a fact that we simply do NOT get any of the fun stuff in our drugstores.

WTH?

Jeepers, we miss out on all the brilliant releases.

In 2009, Maybelline stepped up its game in a major way and introduced products like the Maybelline Eye Studio Shadow Duos and I am so hoping that the new Maybelline Eye Studio Color Explosion Duo Palettes will launch here soon in the US. These are so pretty and are currently available within Europe (and Asia but a different variation).

Take a look!

Etude House Miss Tangerine Sweet Shower Lips Review, Swatches, Photos

Etude House Miss Tangerine Sweet Shower Lips 1

As you know from my prior Musings Korean Brand, Etude House has released Miss Tangerine which is a collection that features vibrant shades of orange for Spring.

So far, Miss Tangerine has been a fun journey but some of the lip products haven’t quite lived up to my expectations. The stains had a way bitter taste and the two selections of lipsticks were a bit too orange for me!

With all this in mind I didn’t set my hopes to high for the last of the lip products featured with the collection which are the Sweet Shower Lips.

Skin Food Lettuce & Cucumber Massage Review

Skin Food Lettuce Cucumber Massage 1

Skin Food Lettuce & Cucumber Massage is an oil-free massage gel with lettuce and cucumber extracts that provides water and nutrients to skin.

I’m a huge fan of the Lettuce & Cucumber Collection and it’s my skincare of choice for Summer. I’ve had the massage gel laying about for a while but I never actually sit around massaging my face. Anyone actually embrace the technique?

A facial massage facilitates blood circulation and relaxes skin while helping with wrinkles thus a massage gel with good glide is always helpful.

Gimmick? Who knows! Lush Cosmetics had instructions and a video for giving oneself a full face massage which proved interesting and many Asian products and magazines recommend such techniques but I honestly don’t have the patience for it…I’m already doing way TOO much with my skin as is, now I need to massage it too?
