Etude House Missing U Lip Balm Review

Etude House Missing U Lip Balm 8

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!

Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 Review, Swatches

Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 3

I’m on the hunt I’m after you…….I think that was a Duran, Duran song. I’m actually on a hunt for lighter coverage. As the Summer and the warm weather gets closer I want to start indulging in some lighter bases. I have a slew already but I like to check out all the new goodies so I can tell you all about ‘em!

Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 was on my hit list first. I was out with my best friend a few weeks ago and we literally did the rounds at Macy’s stopping everywhere and picking up base product after base product. First Clinique, followed up by Chanel, Shiseido….they all have the same packaging! Dude!

Anyway let’s have a look at Moisture Surge TM and see what the deal is.
