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.

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.
Pond’s has a new range of wet cleansing towelettes in morning and evening formulas. Yay for AM and PM versions! Granted, you prob won’t need an AM version unless you’re pulling an all nigher, I slept in my makeup adventure but still the novelty of having different formulas is innovative to say the least.
Outside of my HG cleansing wipes of choice, MAC, I really don’t like alot of wipes because they just don’t do that great a job of cleaning up waterproof eye makeup.
The new Pond’s Evening Sooth Towelettes promise to clean away makeup and waterproof mascara….
Hoyu is a larger Hair Dye company in Japan. One of there popular series is Beauteen which is a gentle way for teens to dye their hair.
Sephora channels Beauteen Hair Dye with their new Instant Moisture Mask. I saw this and instantly though, “Oh, hair dye!” as it comes in a one of those super size Slurpee style cups as does Beautee’s hair dye….so you’re either very Asia and thinking, “hair dye!” or you’re really American and thinking, “7-11! Slurpees!”
Let’s take a look at Sephora Instant Moisture Mask because at the very least, cool packaging aside, it sounds like an intriguing product!
