Beauty Abroad: Banila Co De La Couture II

Banila Co De La Couture II2

Banila Co hits the Fall scene with a brand new…ahem…a rehashed release of De La Couture II. If you’re a fond fan of Korean makeup you probably remember last year’s release of Banila Co De La Couture. I imagine they took the idea and just ran with it again this year. Although it’s new items and new colors it does still fail to wow me into believing I absolutely need it and can’t breath without it. Dare I say last year’s colors were actually more exciting!

Beauty Abroad: L’Oreal True Match Rollon Foundation

Yes well speaking of L’Oreal have you been introduced to the new L’Oreal True Match Rollon Foundation yet?

LOreal True Match Rollon Foundation 1

Oh come now, don’t be timid, you so know when you grow up you want a foundation you can roll onto your face….you should have goals people one of which would be creative ways to apply your foundation.

No but seriously L’oreal really does have a brand new Roll On Foundation that was recently launched in the UK (and prob most of Europe to just don’t get too excited it’s not available in the US. We haven’t reached the height of roll on technology as of yet.)

According to L’Oreal this combines a high perfomance foundation with an innovative applicator for flawless-looking results. The Muse calls it, “Damn, for serious? Give me some of that to try out! I want to roll on my foundation!”

I kinda dig the idea in all honestly. It looks like a soft sponge roller which you roll ala paint roller style into your pan of foundation and you proceed to apply onto your face. I do wonder about application around areas such as the nose though. Not so sure the “roller” will do a good job of rolling around all the slopes and hills of my face but one can hope this is a gift from the cosmetic gods above and will work like a complete charm.

It’s available now from Boots for 12.71 plus if you’re a bit skeptical Boots does have a 3 for 2 sale ongoing. I’m debating do I need myself some L’Oreal True Match Rollon Foundation….

Not sure about the release in the US but who knows we might see it soon and we can all be rolling our way to flawless skin or one can hope we will.

What do you think of this unique design and take on foundation application?

Dr. Jart All Out Black Head Review

Last night the Muse got home extra late and decided to do battle with the one or two stubborn blackheads on her nose. It’s never a good idea to go into full on war with blackheads when you’re tired but she must have been terribly exhausted to attempt it.

As you may know from reading my past posts I’ve been full on at war with these blackheads for a while and my quest has lead me on many adventures to rid myself of them from the downright weird to the incredibly good way of winning this epic battle.

My search recently led me to Dr. Jart All Out Black Head as it gets rave reviews in Korea. Asia understands the drama of blackheads so of course I was ever trusting that Dr. Jart was going to rid me of evil blackheads.

Beauty News: Jill Stuart Hits US Shores Buy Jill Stuart in the US

Here it is folks, the moment you’ve all been waiting for. News on Jill Stuart Cosmetics!

A year or so ago the rumor of Jill Stuart Cosmetics was afloat during Fashion Week and how the flagship store located in New York would begin carrying the line. This morning I read online that indeed Jill Stuart Cosmetics is available within the US at the Jill Stuart Store located in Manhattan.

Gasp.

Incredible right?

I called straight away as I don’t have time to wander over there today and here are the deets.

If you live in New York you can head to 100 Greene Street and touch, pet, and haul till your little heart beats right out of your chest. If you live somewhere else in the US you can order from the store by calling them at (212) 343-2300 and paying a flat rate ground fee of around $15 to have them ship some yummie goodies your way.

I asked after a few of the prices and they are pretty reasonably priced and almost what you’d paid within Japan even a little bit less in some cases. This is the color cosmetic line only that they carry and from what the sales girl told me it’s a limited amount of items but none the less it’s still Jill Stuart right?

Here’s the break down of a few prices:

Jill Stuart Eye Palettes $48
Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Creams $24
Jill Stuart Glosses $30

I only got a few prices as I’m sure the rep was busy at her job. I’ll head over there next chance I get to snag some photos and let you know further details. Fact of the matter is that Jill Stuart Cosmetics within the US is striking news for this sunny Fall afternoon. I’m hopeful this means it’ll branch out to high end counters at Nordies, Saks, and Neimen’s soon! I imagine it all depends on how the line does in the store itself.

Excited?

Go haul!

Jelly Pong Pong Hawaiian Sun Review

I’m keeping my Summer glow together with a little bit of Jelly Pong Pong Hawaiian Sun. Never again will I hate bronzers after using this little bronzer….errr…maybe I should say huge as the packaging is big. The excitement and delight of bronzer all comes together when I whip out my fancy box of Jelly Pong Pong Hawaiian Sun.

I’m one smitten kitten with this kawaii packaging and adorable puff for application.
