Etude House Cloud Bubble Foam Review

Etude House Cloud Bubble Foam 1

I do wonder, is it too taboo to talk about TP on my makeup blog? You know, toilet paper.

Oh Muse why are you bringing up such an intimate thing like toilet paper?

Well…it took me a very long time but I finally figured out what Etude House Eye and Lip Remover smells like. It smells like toilet paper! Um ok step back for a second and let me explain it smells like unused toilet paper, don’t want anyone getting the wrong idea here. You know I think Charmin is the TP that has that cloying powdery floral cheap scent going on…am I making sense?

I absolutely loved the Etude House Eye and Lip Remover but the scent totally murdered me. It was cheap, it was powdery, and it had a whole lot of floral going on. No likey. It took ages to finally pinpoint the scent and finally a light bulb went off and I realized, “hey this smells like toilet paper!”

Oh..I got long winded there for a second. I’m telling you this because it’s generally made me scared to try skin care bits and bobs from Etude House as a few items sport this same scent.

I took the plunge and gave in to purchase Etude House Cloud Bubble Foam and yes you guessed it, it smells like toilet paper.

Le sigh!

Sneak Peek: MAC Riveting Photos and Review

MAC Riveting 1

I was born in the ahem…err…the 70’s. So technically my age of music fell into the 90’s as these were my teen/tween years but like most things in my life, my taste in music was and still is as unconventional as all hell. My sister was an 80’s child and from her I learned to appreciate some great one hit wonders from the early and late 80’s, this was music at it’s best. I was probably six when I developed my first crush on Robert Smith and it’s carried through many a year, thank you 1980’s.

Mind you Robert circa 1980’s was fantastic but not so much when you jump forward over 20 years….it’s ok though, I’ll take him anyway I can get him.

The new MAC Riveting Collection hits the shelf in a few weeks and brings about that retro 80’s glam feel for me with a bit of rock n’ roll thrown in for good measure.

Not everyone can pull off MAC Riveting but I imagine half of us are going to have a bloody great time trying.

Jump for a sneak peek of MAC Riveting!

Beauty Battle: The Skin Food Wash Off Masks Versus Lush Skincare Masks

beauty battle

Let me tell you a story…..hopefully you like these long stories I get into. Ok, so I’m a big Lush skin care fan but lately I’ve been cheating with Korean brand, the Skin Food. This stuff is really great for my skin and I’ve been using it’s super power human strength to make my skin glow.

One thing I’ve never been too big a fan with when it comes to Lush is their face masks. I love some of the interesting promises that the masks make but I’ve never actually experienced the benefits for myself after using them. They are nice to have items but I’ve never had the pleasure of seeing incredible, awe aspiring results from ‘em!

I discovered The Skin Food Face Masks and I swear I can’t live without this good stuff! Now we’re talking results!

I’ve pitted The Skin Food Wash Off Masks against Lush Face Masks in a Beauty Battle. It’s easy enough to see who’ll win this battle but take the jump to find out for yourself!

Etude House Happy Tea Time Cleansing Foam Peach Tea Review

I dunno when but Etude House released this really cute collection of Happy Tea Time Cleansing Foams. The Muse happens to be obsessed with a good cuppa tea so these simply delighted her. I was really good and only indulged in the Peach Tea Cleansing Foam as I wasn’t sure how my skin would react with these. As per the norm, cleansing foam seems to really make my skin tight and dry feeling after use so I was naturally wary about indulging in more than one.

But honestly I was simply gagging to get all of ‘em! They have Lemon Tea, Green Tea, Etc….so cute! From what I understand the “teas” aren’t meant for any specific skin type and can be used by anyone who wants a squeaky clean face.

Check out my review of the Etude House Happy Tea Time Cleansing Foam in Peach Tea after the jump!

The Skin Food Milk Shake Make Up Remover Review

The Skin Food Milk Shake Point Make Up Remover was created to remove eye makeup and water proof eye makeup. It’s a dual phase remover much like Lancome Bi-Facil which has to be shaken up (not stirred…little joke there) to be used.

The Skin Food, as you may already know from my past babblings, is a line available in Korea which is well known for it’s line of “good for you” skincare, makeup, and body care products. I’ve been busy exploring the line further lately and only have great things to say about it.
