Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk Rose Kiss Edition Vault Brings You All the Reds and Pinks for Lips

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Anyone check out the new Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk #Rose Kiss Edition yet? It’s a massive vault that includes 12 shades of Dear Blooming Lips Lipstick in assortment of red rose, pink, and orange shades in cream and chiffon finishes.

You can get one as low as $35 on evil bay with free shipping. I’m feeling terribly tempted. I’m not so into the reds for Summer but I’ll happily have this on hand for Fall and Holiday looks!

I’ve never seen Etude House do a vault like this before so that makes it extra special!

Do I need more lipstick is the question of the moment though? My gut is telling me yes.

Each lipstick has an adorable lip embossing on the top of the lipstick and all the shades come in a keepsake, collectible box.

Adorable right? Perfect for any lipstick lover! I have a feeling this is going to sell out fast. There are days I still feel a sense of melancholy I never got my hands on the Etude House Aloha 48 Colours of Tropical Eyes Palette.

Shop it on ebay.com.

By the way, I may be guilty of reading ahead about Something in the Rain (Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food) and there might be disappointment ahead for our cute noona and dongsaeng couple (aka May September romance)! So far the mom is a horror story but there’s even more sorrow than that ahead from what I read on Dramabeans. I feel awful I ruined it for myself but at least I can get my Jung Hae In cuteness fix. He’s just so damn adorable and he and Son Ye-jin have such incredible chemistry!

Milani Hypnotic Lights Eye Topper review and swatches

Milani Hypnotic Lights Eye Topper ($11) is a new duochrome shimmering eye topper that can be used over your favorite powder eyeshadows or alone to add glittering color to your eyes. I heard a lot about these when they launched and most people kept comparing them to Stila Glitter & Glow Eyeshadow which is what piqued my interest as we all know how much I love that formula.

Sadly, they didn’t interest me very much at first go around because the shade range is pretty limited and many are lighter iridescent pinks, purples, and whites which don’t really work for me. But I decided to purchase two shades when I hauled the new Milani Blush Trio Palettes and at first I was really disappointed with them.

Covergirl TruNaked Chocoholic Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches

Covergirl TruNaked Chocoholic Eyeshadow Palette is one of two scented eyeshadow palettes that launched with the Covergirl Peaches & Chocolate Collection which is available exclusively at Walmart for Summer 2018.

I was lucky enough to find both of the palettes on an end cap at Walmart this weekend as I really didn’t want to order them online as I know how poorly they pack makeup and was worried it would arrive broken. As you know there are also blushes, bronzers, and other goodies in this collection but the Walmart I visited didn’t have any of those available. Interestingly enough the display had two open tester palettes so if you wanted to swatch and play a little they were at your disposable. We all know testers at the drugstore aren’t exactly common! I was pretty surprised and delighted that they were thoughtful enough to have these available for anyone wanting to swatch them up in store.

Scented makeup seems the latest Summer trend with brands like Maybelline and L’Oreal releasing many different scented eyeshadow palettes as well as upcoming ones for Fall 2018. I just got a notice that my L’Oreal Cherry my Cheri Eyeshadow Palette launched and I just recently reviewed their Paradise Enchanted Scented Eyeshadow Palette plus they have an upcoming Berry Much Eyeshadow Palette all of these being scented.

As for Maybelline they released Lemonade Craze which is a lemonade scented palette and they have an upcoming Soda Pop Eyeshadow Palette which is scented like cola.

I have to admit I find the whole scented makeup thing rather novel. As a kid growing up with Sanrio, scratch n’ sniff stickers, etc…the idea of scented makeup is just really appealing and tickles my inner child. I mentioned a while back ago in my Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette review I’d totally buy anything that Too Faced choose to scent. I think some of us went so far as to say wouldn’t a Pumpkin Spice Eyeshadow Palette be awesome or even an apple one. Too Faced never did go that deep with their “scented” options but obviously the drugstore makeup world is taking on the trend full speed.

And I love it!
