Holika Holika Pore Cover Mousse Starter Review & Swatches

Holika Holika Pore Cover Mousse Starter

Holika Holika Pore Cover Mousse Starter is a foaming primer with an SPF 30. This foaming facial primer supposedly blurs the appearance of large pores while evening out skin tone and prepping skin for makeup while protecting it from the sun.

Foaming primers like this are a fairly common offering that a variety of Asian brands offer. I’ve tried literally hundreds and most offer the same benefits.

Missha Signature Complexion Coordinating BB Cream Review

Missha Complexion Coordinating BB Cream SPF 43

There’s actually a white color adjusting formula of this that’s dubbed BB Cream which I am curious to try out but I went the safer route and got the already beige shade.

Let’s take a look!

Lavshuca Sweet Perfume Cheek Review & Swatches

Lavshuca Sweet Perfume Cheek Spring 2013

Lavshuca Sweet Perfume Cheek Blush was recently launched for Spring 2013 in four shades. Supposedly they smell like the scent of sweet lollipop. You’re probably think, “Oh that’s why she purchased it!” if so you either know me too well or that’s why you would have purchased it too.

Seriously, tell me, lollipop scented blusher, does that not kinda thrill you? I can’t be alone here. Bueller? Bueller? Anyone?

Innisfree Real Skin CC Cream Review & Swatches

Innisfree Real Skin CC Cream

CC Creams are hitting hard this Spring in Korea and many brands are introducing their own variation. The latest one I tried is Innisfree Real Skin CC Cream which also fits into the color adapting formula that many of the brands producing CC Cream are using.

I am very impressed with the color changing technology on CC Creams as they seem to indeed do a fairly good job of fitting my exact skin tone and so far I’ve only had one that was a tad too pasty and light. Outside of that it appears the skin adapting technology is really working out quite well.

Let’s take a look at Innisfree Real Skin CC Cream.
