Musings of the Day: What Brand Do You Want Bringing Your BB Cream To You?

BB Creams Blemish Balm Creams

Dr. Jart recently launched two BB Creams to the US Market available exclusively at Sephora. This is a big step for the US market however sadly, my experience so far with BB Creams here in the US is lacking.

Dr. Jart, BRTC, Missha, Skin79, etc…are all popular BB Creams available in Korea and household names however larger brands we all know and love also have BB Creams available within the Asian market such as Dior, MAC, Lancome, etc….

This Summer, I believe you’ll start seeing the ripple effect of Dr. Jart’s US launch. It’ll be small at first but by Fall, BB Creams will finally be something that the US market will know of and hopefully embrace.

I already have confirmed news that Smashbox has a BB Cream of sorts that will be available exclusively from QVC. I also hear rumors of MAC finally bringing their BB Cream to the states and also a whisper about Clinique possibly launching one.

My question is, which brand would you like to see release a BB Cream here in the US?

Perhaps your favorite high end brands like Dior and Chanel?

Or maybe middle end brands such as Urban Decay or Too Faced?

Or maybe you want to hit up your local drugstore and grab one from Revlon or Covergirl?

Either way BB Creams are finally launching here in the US but whether or not our market actually embraces them or not only time will tell.

Musings of the Day: How FAR Are You Willing to Go For Beauty?

Have you met Queenie? That’s her behind the yellow mask there. She’s one of those inspirational people that makes you remember why you love life so much.

What’s the mask for?

Well, she’s having a skin whitening injection which is a popular since early 2010 in Taiwan and Hong Kong. It similar to a Botox injection in someways but rather than lifting skin it offers a way to whiten it temporarily.

Honestly, at prices that go from $900-$1500 I wouldn’t be so inclined to do it for mere temporary results.

Chances are you won’t see whitening injections in the US anytime since the craze for whiter skin isn’t one we embrace in the Western market plus since the local Asian governments don’t actually place restrictions on the treatments and they are done in easy to access place such as a beauty salon, well, I doubt that would go over big here but…

How FAR are you willing to go for beauty?

Musings of the Day: Do You Read Magazines?

Musings of the Day Mags

Damn, I’m trying to remember this magazine I used to read when I was in high school. YA, Y&A, something along those lines…it was one of those magazines that features the typical beauty, interview, etc…dealio and had one of those embarrassing story sections.

I believe those stories were completely made up and false. They were too damn crazy to be real. There were stories along the lines of “I was swimming at my best friend’s pool and my super cute crush was there, when I dived into the pool my tampon flew out and floated next to his head…OMGZ I was so embarrassed” or “My boyfriend and I were having a hot and heavy make out section when I suddenly farted!”

I totally wanted to write a fictional embarrassing story and have it published.

Granted, embarrassing shiz happens all the time but some of these were SUPER far out.

Which brings me to my Musings of the Day….

Do you still read magazines?

Or are you an online media whore?

Do you get the latest celeb news, beauty launches, and womanly advice from both mags, blogs, and sites?

Musings of the Day: Is It Ok to Paint Your Little Boy’s Nails?

J Crew Jenna Paints Sons Nails

It’s funny I’m writing this post today as some of us were gushing over a Korean Drama, Playful Kiss, yesterday.

In the drama, the lead boy’s mother expresses how much she always wanted a little girl but she ended up with two boys. She goes on to tell the girl who’s crushing on her son how she would dress him up as a girl when he was little and even shows her pictures of him with pigtails.

It’s a rather cute story and makes for some great blackmail material for the girl who’s crushing so badly on that boy!

By now you may have already read the outrage over the J. Crew catalog which features president and creative director Jenna Lyons and her family. In one of the photos she’s painting her five year old son’s toenails pink and explains, “Lucky for me I ended up with a boy whose favorite color is pink. Toenail painting is way more fun in neon.”

Well the shiz has hit the fan and everyone has opinion on how wrong or right this is.

What do you think?

Is it right or wrong to paint your small son’s toes nail and finger nails?

Beauty Browser

Curious minds but how do you prefer reading your beauty on websites?

1 post a day? 2? 10? 1 a week?

Do you like seeing high res images of collections?

Prefer just reading reviews and not hearing about new products or collections?

Do you like just high end posts? Lower budget ends? Both?

Do you like to hear about products from different countries or just ones you can get in the US?

I’d love to hear how you like reading beauty!
