Beauty Abroad: Banila Co De La Couture II

Banila Co De La Couture II2

Banila Co hits the Fall scene with a brand new…ahem…a rehashed release of De La Couture II. If you’re a fond fan of Korean makeup you probably remember last year’s release of Banila Co De La Couture. I imagine they took the idea and just ran with it again this year. Although it’s new items and new colors it does still fail to wow me into believing I absolutely need it and can’t breath without it. Dare I say last year’s colors were actually more exciting!

Dr. Jart All Out Black Head Review

Last night the Muse got home extra late and decided to do battle with the one or two stubborn blackheads on her nose.  It’s never a good idea to go into full on war with blackheads when you’re tired but she must have been terribly exhausted to attempt it.

As you may know from reading my past posts I’ve been full on at war with these blackheads for a while and my quest has lead me on many adventures to rid myself of them from the downright weird to the incredibly good way of winning this epic battle.

My search recently led me to Dr. Jart All Out Black Head as it gets rave reviews in Korea. Asia understands the drama of blackheads so of course I was ever trusting that Dr. Jart was going to rid me of evil blackheads.

Skin Food Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream Review

Salmon is a popular food because of it’s healthy Omega-3 fatty acids and high vitamin content plus it’s ever so tasty isn’t it? It also happens to be the theme surrounding the new Skin Food collection available now in stores.

The line is a concentrated formula rich in omega-3 fatty acid, haloxyl, arbutin and vitamins to improve blood circulation and whiten skin. It includes not only a concealer but also a brightening powder and several creams and serums for use under the eyes.

Aside from the salmon-like formula it also sports a salmon color which is always ideal for covering severe dark circles.

Skin79 Diamond Collection Star Glow Ball Powder Review and Swatches

More beauty abroad coming atcha today chicas.

I’ve been having a ton of fun sampling all the goodies that I got with my Skin79 Diamond Collection Set. This set is an incredible deal as it includes a slew of items for one low cost.

Although the sets aren’t sold in the US you can purchase individual items from E-bay and a few select online shops if you Google a bit and search around.

Today I’m reviewing the Skin79 Diamond Collection Star Glow Ball Powder.

Tale a peep after the jump!

This is much like my Esprique Precious Illuminate Nuancer which I simply adore however not as nice, tell you why in a few.

The “powder” is made up of several shades of pastel colored balls to be used to highlight certain areas of the face. It’s supposed to brighten the face up while highlighting however the formula is terribly frosty which is unflattering on my face.

The highlighter is housed in a cute, simple pink jar with a super soft puff included. Love the puff…it’s truly luxurious and super soft. The balls all range in shades from pastel pink, green, purple, etc…much like you’d find in a jar of Guerlain Meteorites. Where as Guerlain and Esprique is a subtle little highlight this is a rather frosty, shimmery affair that looks like a disco ball blew up in my face. Of course I adore sparkle and the likes but this was a bit overkill.

Not much else to say about it sadly other than the fact it was a sore disappointment and will end up on my swap list directly.

No likey.

Most of the Skin79 Diamond Collection has been a joy up until now but this one is a safe skip if you’re not wanting a frosty mess on your face. Pretty in the jar not on the face.
