Starting this August Missha is now sold at Bed, Bath, and Beyond as well as Harmons and Face Values Discount Health and Beauty stores. HOW amazing is it that a Korean brand is now sold in a US drugstore!? I feel like the Eastern market is really dominating the Western one lately with many brands like Tony Moly, Dr Jart, Too Cool for School and many, many others popping up at stores like Sephora, Urban Outfitters, and other locations!
And now Missha sold at Bed, Bath, and Beyond and Harmons? That’s the best news every! I look forward to seeing how Fall pans out and into Winter as I have a feeling K-Beauty is going to dominate strong! As a blogger that’s been blogging Japanese, Chinese, Korean, and many other Asian brands for several years now I find this evolution very, very, very exciting!
Missha Soft Blending Stick Blusher is one of new favorite cream blushes of the moment and that’s saying something because I’m NOT a cream blush fan. I dunno what it is but cream blush fade super quickly on me so I tend to stay away from them.
But how could I resist the Missha Soft Blending Stick Blusher? It has a cute little blending brush on one end and the blush on the other and yeah, I’m game to admit that the brush kinda made me want to purchase the blush stick. Shrug, irrational purchasing reason at its best!
How cutes are these Missha M Soft Blending Stick Blushers? Pur Minerals recently launched their Chateau Cheek Stain which are IDENTICAL to Missha’s (but Missha’s are cheaper) and also Smashbox has a new L.A. Lights Blendable Lip & Cheek Color (but again these are cheaper).
Take a look!
I think the Memebox Special #45 Chocolate Mania was my first Memebox purchase and I JUST GOT it this week! I only paid $23 plus shipping ($6.99) and this one was a great box because it’s filled with 8 full size products.
All the items inside are chocolate themed as you may have guessed from the name and much of it was skincare in nature. A lot of my Memeboxes have one too many skincare products inside but I didn’t much so much with this box since everything smelled so yummy.
Funny thing, I dislike chocolate scented fragrances and such but I like chocolate scented skincare so I was kinda hyped about the contents of this box!
Many of you know I’m a huge Clarins Flash Balm fan girl so of course, Missha Misa Geumsul Vitalizing Finisher intrigued me! Missha Misa Geumsul Vitalizing Finisher is actually a product you use after your primary skincare, in the AM, and prior to your makeup. So in a sense, it’s a lot like the way I use Clarins Flash Balm!
The general idea of the product is to create a base for makeup but also to sooth and treat tired looking skin and revitalize it with Ginseng extract. So it not only adds moisture but also keeps skin look bright and happy. Apparently it contains herbal oriental medication…but a quick look at the ingredients doesn’t reveal much (Ginseng extract, Squalene, Honey, Albiflora Root Extract, Prunus Mume Flower Extract, Cinnamomum Camphora (Camphor) Leaf Extract, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract, Cnidium Officinale Root Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Leaf Extract, Angelica Keiskei Leaf/Stem Extract).
Let’s take a look!
