Imma love me some funky cool packaging!
Rain Cosmetics has this brilliant little RainDrop All Natural Lip Therapy that comes housed in a tear drop (or rain drop if you will) shaped packaging. My inner kid is running around getting all excited about the packaging.
And dude, it kinda tastes like car air freshener….but in a good way. Is that weird? ’67 Impala air freshener smell. My cousin had a Monte Carlo when I was growing up aka pimp mobile. And all I can remember about that car (I was probably five at the time or so) is the fact that it smelled like coconuts and had some major Playboy accessories going on like lock buttons with the Playboy Bunny on them….wow….
I dunno what happened but he’s bald now with three beautiful children whom I adore, I guess the Playboy angle didn’t work out.
Warning: There are minor references and fan girl moments after the jump that bring Rain into the discussion. And not the kind that comes from nature.
Being an avid collector of Asian cosmetics I can honestly say that I probably have enough fruit shaped makeup products that should the zombie plague happen, I can depend on these products as my fresh produce.
Seriously, I’m going to start making fruit baskets for friends with this stuff.
Gawd, I can’t take the cuteness! Tony Moly Mini Berry Lip Balms are shaped like tiny little blueberries and cherries, see the appeal?
I have a thing for cute beauty products, obviously right? Etude House introduced a range of hand creams and lip balms several months ago in a baby animal theme which instantly had me at that “awww OMG so cute!” stage.
I’m such a wimp for kawaii makeup.
There are four animals featured on the packaging in the form of a baby penguin, seal, panda, and dolphin. After hauling all four of them I went through the secondary stage, this is the stage after the “awww OMG so cute!” stage as reality sinks in and I sit and wonder why I need four tins of lip balm….and I remember oh yeah, because there cute.
It’s a sickness people.
In the end I ended up keeping two and gifting the others away! See? Sometimes I’m smart.
Here’s my thoughts!
It’s a very exciting time for Etude House Spring 2011 as they have introduced their newest collection, Miss Tangerine, featuring Sandara Park (Dara) as their promo model. I haven’t been this excited about a release from Etude House since their Peach Collection a few seasons ago!
The collection, as you might have guessed, is themed around the orange trend that seems to take hold of us again this Spring/Summer or in the case of Etude House, the tangerine trend!
I, unfortunately, look scary in oranges or tangerines. I can do peach and coral but orange is a no go on my lips (maybe my lids and cheeks but not my lips).
I think Etude House Miss Tangerine takes the trend to a new level making it wearable, sweet, and fun. It’s a youthful, girlish look and not the bolder, harsher edge you see here in the Western market.
I’ll be reviewing pieces from the collection over the course of the next few days!
I hope you’ll enjoy this look into it.
The Tokidoki for Sephora Collection has four brand new Gelato Lip Balm Stains available. I assume these are replacing Fantastico Lip Stain which are on sale now for $10 bucks each, aw man, I liked those.
Let’s have a lookiee at these new little guys!
