Etude House Princess Makeup Table Review

Etude House Princess Makeup Table 7

The Etude House Princess Makeup Table I recently purchased is one of those items that leaves me wondering, “Did I really need this?” I’m a child at heart so needless to say when I saw the Etude House Princess Makeup Table I had a little SQUEE moment! They recently released this with the Etude House Princess Happy Ending Collection and I instantly had to have it. So, I had a very good friend of mine in Korea pick it up for me.

It’s kinda expensive if you’re grabbing it from friends/family or if you’re going the online route for a purchase from say E-bay. Reason being is the shipping kinda kills ya here. I believe it set me back like $12 or so dollars but with shipping it came out to more like $30.

Absurd? Probably since it is kinda a childish makeup organizer AND it’s plastic AND it’s not very sturdy AND I actually already have a very good 360 degree spinning organizer from Lori Greiner that Pursebuzz gifted to me for Christmas a few years ago!

But the heart wants what the heart wants….!

Miguhara B.P. Cream Review & Swatches

Memebox X Coffeebreak with Dani 30

Miguhara B.P. Cream is something I received recently in a Super Memebox! The Memebox was actually $23 so I was a little skeptical about the contents at first and whether or not the box was actually worth the shipping plus the price. Too many beauty boxes I’ve seen cost a good deal and you end up with deluxe size samples. The Miguhara B.P. Cream is actually full size however, Korean beauty and skincare is relatively cheap and you can get quality beauty products for around $5-$15 within Korean.

So….

I wasn’t sure that the Memebox purchase would actually be worth the actual contents.

I’ve never actually tried Miguhara, nor have I done research on the brand. As an avid Korean and Asian beauty fan I was surprised the brand never crossed my regard. After doing a little research I was quite shocked that this full size tube is $36! My Memebox was filled with seven full size products so this product along took care of almost the entire cost of the box which was $23. Interesting!

Anyway, now that I analyzed cost.

Let’s take a look at Miguhara B.P. Cream!

Ugh a another day a new Memebox! This time Memebox goes chocolate with a new Chocolate Mania Beauty Box that launched yesterday!

If you’re a sucker for chocolate this one is for you! Memebox packs in chocolate-y beauty products that look, feel, and even smell like chocolate in this new box.

Of course, the major appeal to Memebox is the surprise element so this one could be filled with Korean makeup, skincare, and other beauty goodies!

Happy Shopping!

I resisted so far but I dunno how long I’m going to last before I grab this one up!

Missha Misa Geumsul Vitalizing Finisher Review & Swatches

Missha Misa Geumsul Vitalizing Finisher 3

Many of you know I’m a huge Clarins Flash Balm fan girl so of course, Missha Misa Geumsul Vitalizing Finisher intrigued me! Missha Misa Geumsul Vitalizing Finisher is actually a product you use after your primary skincare, in the AM, and prior to your makeup. So in a sense, it’s a lot like the way I use Clarins Flash Balm!

The general idea of the product is to create a base for makeup but also to sooth and treat tired looking skin and revitalize it with Ginseng extract. So it not only adds moisture but also keeps skin look bright and happy. Apparently it contains herbal oriental medication…but a quick look at the ingredients doesn’t reveal much (Ginseng extract, Squalene, Honey, Albiflora Root Extract, Prunus Mume Flower Extract, Cinnamomum Camphora (Camphor) Leaf Extract, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract, Cnidium Officinale Root Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Leaf Extract, Angelica Keiskei Leaf/Stem Extract).

Let’s take a look!
