"Korean Cosmetics Appear in an American Girl’s Blog"

The Muse has a really deep love for all different kinds of Asian cultures. One culture I have a very special in my heart for is Korea. I’m a big lover of Korean popular culture as you may know from reading my past blogs about K-Dramas, K-Pop, Etc…..

Today a lovely reader, MJ, pointed out that I had made it into an online Korean newspaper (Thanks MJ! Hugs!).

I’m so utterly thrilled that the good word of my little blog has spread so far as a Korean newspaper! How awesome is that?!

Sadly, I can’t read everything that was said but I translated some of it via Babel Fish and it sure sounds like a promising article about my Etude House review!


Do have a click over here to view the article for yourself (be sure to have a Korean Lanuage Pack installed if you’re wanting to translate for yourself)!

Thanks again to MJ for pointing this out to me! I had noticed a very large increase of Korean readers lately on my stats and obviously this is the reason why!

A big warm welcome to all my new readers from Korea!


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    Hi muse!

    I’m MJ again… I translated all article for U, but I’m not sure that this translation is right or not… because I’ve learnt English. I feel that this translation is kinda study of English^^. U have to know that I made an effort it.

    I don’t think that you are silly. If I were you, I would be proud of myself. ha~ha~
    Enjoy this article… big hug.
    bye~ bye~

    Korean Cosmetics Appear in an American Girls’ Blog?

    One American woman introduces Korean cosmetics in detail on her blog.(

    She who calls herself ‘Cosmetic W.’ is a mania of cosmetics. Approximately she updates her blog with over 80 reviews of cosmetics a month.

    Recently she introduced 10 peach themed items of Etude House; The Pore Erasing Peach Base, blushers, a eyeshadow, a lipgloss and so on…

    Many americans were interested in the page where those products were introduced – On that page there are total 140 comments.

    On her review about the Pore Erasing Peach Base, the Peach Skin Pact, she said,

    “It’s wonderful, brillant primer and the price is ridiculosly inexpensive for such a great product”

    On this blog there are also many reviews and pictures of Korean cosmetics such as Laneige, Vov.

    No not at all!! It’s definitely worth posting about it and you deserving bragging rights for being such a dedicated and amazing blogger!

    I’m going to try to read the full article at some point (it takes me a while to plod through Korean articles) but you should be so proud-you give so many people access to information about cosmetics they otherwise would never have heard of or found on their own 🙂
