6 New Japanese and Korean Makeup Products To Get Excited About

korean and japanese makeup

All is quiet on the US makeup world lately! I think the most hyped up products in the last few months have been the Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette, the Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Eyeshadow Palette and Lipsticks, and the Urban Decay Vice Lipstick.

Outside of these releases, I feel like things have been very, very quite on the makeup and beauty front. Especially at drugstores, as last year I recall many Spring/Summer releases being available early in April and so far the only major release at the drugstore has been the Katy Kat Matte Lipsticks.

But no worries, I’m sure plenty is on the horizon! I’m already hearing about plenty of new Maybelline goodies. Plus I’m hoping for the L’Oreal Cushion Blushes to get a launch here in the US.

Interesting enough Japan and Korea has been a little quiet lately too but here are 5 new Japanese and Korean makeup products to get excited about. I’m particularly excited about the new Etude House Lipsticks so keep your eye on those!

Touch in Sol Be 18 Watery Cushion Blush
Touch in Sol has recently become available at so I have hopes we’ll soon be able to grab up their new cushion blushes which have a lightweight fluid texture that give a burst of fresh glow-y color to cheeks instantly.

Touch in Sol One Second Vivid Lip Crayon
I have a feeling bright, juicy shades are going to be right on target for Summer looks. Touch of Sol’s new lip crayons offer endless ways to get a bold, bright look on lips by mixing and matching shades to create a ton of creamy colors! These have already launched on the Sephora Canadian site so expect them soon in the US!

Les Merveilleuses Laduree Liquid Cheek Color
If you’re a fond fan of Japanese brand Majolica Majorca you might just remember their Cream de Cheek Liquid Blush which is exactly what the new Les Merveilleuses Laduree Liquid Cheek Color looks like but at a far higher price tag. I have to keep reminding myself I have a few Cream de Cheek Liquid Blushes so prevent me from indulging in this gorgeous fluid blush that gives cheeks a pop of yummy color!

Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips Talk Matt and Dear My Blooming Lips Talk Chiffon
Etude House recently introduced two new finishes in their Dear My Blooming Lips Lipstick Collection. The matte does not interest me but the chiffon finish sounds lovely! The Chiffon finish is supposed to a be lighter, easier to wear silkier matte finish with a velvety texture.

Etude House Real Powder Cushion
Ah cushion, cushions, cushions! They start running together after a while but Etude House’s newest cushion makeup has a light, creamy consistency that sets to an airy powder.

RMK Lip Care Color UV Stick
A sheer lip color in an array of fun Summer shades with UV filter to protect lips from harmful sun rays!

All of these new yummies are available now from my favorite seller F2Plus1 and get the Les Merveilleuses Laduree Liquid Cheek Color and RMK Lip Care Color from

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.

    Discovered Korean products early last year. Not only am I blown away by the quality, efficacy, and low cost, but aren’t they the cutest packaging you’ve ever seen.
