Etude House Miss Tangerine Sweet Shower Lips Review, Swatches, Photos

Etude House Miss Tangerine Sweet Shower Lips 1

As you know from my prior Musings Korean Brand, Etude House has released Miss Tangerine which is a collection that features vibrant shades of orange for Spring.

So far, Miss Tangerine has been a fun journey but some of the lip products haven’t quite lived up to my expectations. The stains had a way bitter taste and the two selections of lipsticks were a bit too orange for me!

With all this in mind I didn’t set my hopes to high for the last of the lip products featured with the collection which are the Sweet Shower Lips.

Clinique Pretty in Prints Milly for Clinique Palette 2

Milly designer Michelle Smith brings a whimsical touch to Clinique’s Spring Collection 2011 with the Pretty in Prints Palette. You may have a tiny case of deja vu here as the Pretty in Prints Palette does so remind me of the Holiday 2010 Strawberry Fudge Palette but this time we go a bit peachy rather than pink!

The palette features four shades of shadow, blush, applicators, a how to guide, and a Milly drawstring pouch for stashing it all in!

Review: Obsessed with Clarins Beauty Flash Balm

Clarins Beauty Flash Balm 3

Tired, dry skin…mmm I’m coming out of hibernation now kids and I don’t really love how my skin looks in the harsh light of Spring. I’m pretty dry, pretty dull, and pretty tired looking.

The seasons are changing so I really want to start getting my skin into Spring mode. It’s always a difficult time since it takes a hot second for my skin to adjust to the fact that it’s not freezing cold outside anymore and it really doesn’t need heavy duty moisturizers!

To eliminate fatigue and make my face appear rested, smooth, and brighter I reach for Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, because that’s just it, in a FLASH, it makes me look all kinds of fresh and well rested!

Skin Food Lettuce & Cucumber Massage Review

Skin Food Lettuce Cucumber Massage 1

Skin Food Lettuce & Cucumber Massage is an oil-free massage gel with lettuce and cucumber extracts that provides water and nutrients to skin.

I’m a huge fan of the Lettuce & Cucumber Collection and it’s my skincare of choice for Summer. I’ve had the massage gel laying about for a while but I never actually sit around massaging my face. Anyone actually embrace the technique?

A facial massage facilitates blood circulation and relaxes skin while helping with wrinkles thus a massage gel with good glide is always helpful.

Gimmick? Who knows! Lush Cosmetics had instructions and a video for giving oneself a full face massage which proved interesting and many Asian products and magazines recommend such techniques but I honestly don’t have the patience for it…I’m already doing way TOO much with my skin as is, now I need to massage it too?
