Lavshuca Candy Pop Eye Base Review & Swatches

Lavshuca Eye Base

Lavshuca recently introduced a range of eyeshadow singles entitled Candy Pop. Along with this release Lavshuca Eye Base Primer makes an appearance in two different shades (pink and beige) which I decided I might as well try out.

I really don’t need another base at the moment but the cute pink tin was partially responsible for my spontaneous purchase, come on, cut me a break, you know I can’t resist cute packaging.

Sigh.

If you already own KATE Eyeshadow Base Primer you probably don’t need the Lavshuca Eye Base however, I will say that it actually seemed to perform a little better than the KATE formula. Of course, I might be just imaging that as KATE and Lavshuca are sister brands created by the same parent company, Kanebo.

InnisFree Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil Review

InnisFree Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil

Innisfree Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil has been keeping my vanity company for a few months now so I thought I’d give it a review. Innisfree is a Korean brand which makes (or made) one of my very favorite BB Creams and it sincerely doesn’t get enough love here on my blog because it really is a great brand with some super offerings.

Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil is one such brilliant offering!

It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Full Coverage CC Cream Review & Swatches

It Cosmetics CC Cream

After testing the new It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Full Coverage Physical SPF 50 CC Cream for the past month I thought it was about time to review and swatch it for everyone.

This is quite an exciting product as it has the coverage of a BB Cream but the skincare benefits of a CC Cream plus it’s available in a wider range of shades from light to dark.

Interestingly enough it’s actually made in Korean and contains snail secretion as one of the top ingredients so you know its going to be moisturizing for those of us with drier skin!

Take a look!

Lavshuca Flower Syrup Gloss Review & Swatches

Lavshuca Flower Syrup Gloss Spring 2013

I wanna accuse Lavshuca Flower Syrup Gloss of not turning my everyday life into a wonderland.

According to the package, “As you put on this makeup, your everyday life turns into a wonderland in an instant”.

LIES all LIES!

The wonderland didn’t happen…where is my damn wonderland…?!

Ha…no seriously, that really is what the packaging says. I love Japanese makeup!
