Holika Holika Moisture Petit BB SPF 30 PA++ Review, Swatches, Photos

Holika Holika Moisture Petit BB SPF 30 PA++ 11

Holika Holika is a newer brand that launched in Korea. The brand is starting to gain an online awareness now so you’ll see it pretty much popping up everywhere as it begins to go viral.

Part of its popularity could be due to the fact CN BLUE endorses the brand or the fact that it has a certain Harry Potter/Gothic witchy deal going on. Store employees are all dressed like witches and products all have a boil, boil, toil and trouble potion vibe going on.

I chose to believe everyone is flocking to the store because they really dig Jung Yong Hwa in manliner and they feel bad he didn’t get the guy errrr girl in You’re Beautiful. Let’s give Yong Hwa all our money because he was the odd man out in You’re Beautiful! Awwww! Poor Yong Hwa! Boy, you can put your dupetastic, Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes Mascara look-a-like mascara on my lashes any damn time you want!

See? Korean brands know what we women want! A cute Asian boy leaning in to apply our makeup that wears liner better than us! Yes Siree bring that on now!

The brand has a line of Petit BB Creams available in five formulas. I believe they dubbed them Petit due to the small tubes they come in. I really like the size because I find it hard getting through BB Creams since 1. I have over 30-40 of ‘em and 2. they are so pigmented a single tube can literally last you into the next millennium.

L’occitane en Provence Pivoine Flora Lip Shine Rose Review, Swatches, Photos

Loccitane en Provence Pivoine Flora Lip Shine 9

My go to nude lipgloss is Korres Nude 33, it’s my I wish I looked like Kim Kardashian but at least I have her rocking nude lip look. Mind you, I don’t LIKE nude lippies because they make me look like living dead girl. Hey, not that that’s a bad thing, zombies are people too ya know…but on me, fuller face, chubby cheeks, it isn’t rockin’!

However, after discovering Nude 33 suddenly the skies opened up, harp the Herald Angels sing, I could wear a nude lipgloss and rock it hardcore.

Up until now that’s about the only true nude lipgloss I really liked….but now L’occitane en Provence Pivoine Flora Lip Shine in Rose Ballerine is my new OMG you NEED this nude lipgloss of choice.

Check it!

You NEED this: Elizabeth Arden Makeup Blender Brush Review

Elizabeth Arden Makeup Blender Brush 1

This morning I broke out my Elizabeth Arden Makeup Blender Brush AGAIN. We has committed relationship and is going steady nowz! No but seriously, I normally commit to no face brush aside from my Bobbi Brown Blush Brush! I have no strings, no relationships with any one facial brush simply because I prefer applying my BB Cream (foundation) with my good old fingers!

But since getting an Elizabeth Arden Makeup Blender Brush in the mail a few weeks ago, well, I’m about to put a ring on it.

I love this thing!

Beauty on a Budget: Real Colors Regal Eyes Embellished Eyeshadow Review, Swatches, Photos

Real Colors Regal Eyes Embellished Eyeshadow 5

Being Human fans I have some crispy nuggets of info from Toby today!

P.S. So pissed at him for killing Mitchell WTF dude!

Mitchell Being Human

He’s already been quite the busy boy and episode 7 from series 4 is in the can. He shares info about alot of new faces appearing in series 4, one old face, a shocking death (OMG! No more! I’m still in mourning for my Mitchell), a new villain (le sigh can anyone possibly top Herrick?), a sort of new supernatural element/ghost, a new writer, and a journey to somewhere that the series has never gone before (oh Bristol to Cardiff was SUCH an adventure yay! Heavy sarcasm!)

Herrick Being Human

Ok, go on my son! Squeal! I’m excited. Personally I do think it’s like re-eventing the wheel without Mitchell but I’m game for new shiz!

By the way, have you watched Becoming Human? It rocks! It’s a series of 8 webisodes that features Craig Roberts, you know, that snarky little bugger of a new born Adam from last season!

Anyway, sorry, total babble fest there!

How about a little beauty budget eyeshadow to lighten the load of Being Human insanity?

Real Colors Regal Eyes Embellished Eyeshadow popped into my world recently and I gotta say, Imma like cheap as chips Sally Beauty Eyeshadow!

w00t!

Beauty Story Diamond Royal Jelly Revitalizing Sheet Mask Review

Beauty Story Diamond Royal Jelly Revitalizing Sheet Mask 6

Beauty Story Sheet Masks supposedly contain diamond particles…seriously, people, WTH does that even mean? Diamond particles. Oh stop now!

Diamond promises aside, it does contain a heap load of Royal Jelly Extract so I feel like Queen B when I wear it.

sheet mask

Royal Jelly is derived from the secretions of male worker bees! That’s right bish, gather my honey! Crack the whip! It’s made up of amino acids (among other things, secretions? please child, let’s hope that isn’t what I think it is) and a ton of vitamins and minerals. Some brands harvest it because it’s a great natural skin care ingredient but I just like it because it moisturizers skin all crazy like and improves the general appearance and texture of it! I won’t get into all its great benefits but needless to say Royal Jelly is a rocking ingredient to include in a sheet mask!

Let’s take a peek at Beauty Story Diamond Royal Jelly Revitalizing Sheet Masks!
