Etude House Sweet Recipe Chocolate Highlighter Review & Swatches

Etude House Sweet Recipe Chocolate Highlighter1

Recently I got my Etude House Sweet Recipe Chocolate Highlighter from the new Etude House Sweet Recipe Collection. I rarely use highlighters however, I am a magpie so sparkly, pretty powders are one of my biggest downfalls.

I couldn’t resist purchasing this little highlighter especially since it’s shaped like a brick of white chocolate.

Take a look!

Shiseido Perfect Hydrating BB Cream Review & Swatches

Shiseido Perfect Hydrating BB Cream SPF 35

Shiseido Perfect Hydrating BB Cream SPF 35 ($33) is an odd animal as it just released but is only available in Medium and Dark. As an Asian brand the lack of a lighter skin tone option is a tad confusing. I tried it out in dark which was too dark for my tone unfortunately but I will be heading to counter shortly to see if Medium is a better option for me because as with most Shiseido bases this is a win!

Kao Biore Aqua Rich Watery BB Launches in Japan

Kao Biore Aqua Rich Watery BB

I’m happy to report Kao has launched their next generation Aqua Rich Watery product in the form of a BB Cream. Biore Aqua Rich Watery BB contains the same great formula as the original Aqua Rich Watery SPF 50 which has a mousse-like texture and a moisturizing finish but also now acts as BB Cream for giving skin a brighter appearance on application.

I love the idea of it still containing a generous SPF 50 as well as being tinted to even out skin tone and to act as a tinted moisturizer of sorts. Even if it doesn’t provide the same great benefits as a regular BB Cream I’m still interested in trying it out as I use and love the original sunscreen only version.

This retails for $7-$10 in Japan so expect to pay $14.99 and upwards when it reaches online shops.

I’ll be reviewing it shortly.

If you tried it feel free to share your thoughts!

Keep your eyes on AlphabeautyUK (not affiliated) on E-bay as I’m sure she’ll be getting it shortly!
