The Face Shop Aura Color Control Cream Review & Swatches

The Face Shop Aura Color Control Cream

The Face Shop Aura Color Control Cream is available in two shade selections and recently launched in Korea. This is one of the more interesting CC Creams I’ve run across lately due to the innovative compact packaging. You wouldn’t think of a cream base being packaged in a compact but that’s exactly how the Face Shop serves up its Aura Color Control Cream.

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!
