Etude House Dear My Enamel Lips-Talk REVIEW

10 December 2016

Korean beauty is all the rage lately and it doesn't seem to be going anywhere or slowing down any time soon, so I figured what better way to make a come back to blogging by jumping on that bandwagon! I picked up two of these lipsticks in Chinatown in Chicago, and of course they're old, discontinued shades BUT the formulas are the same, so I'm running under the assumption that the new and current formulas and shades are pretty much the same product as well. I will try to locate bother of these lip colors on the internet for purchase but I can't guarantee that I will be able to find any legit sellers or whatnot. If you live in the Chicago area, I would suggest just going straight to Chinatown and if you do not, I suggest looking up reviews of the sites and whatnot. I didn't order these online, and I don't necessarily know how legitimate any of the sellers I might find are, nor do I want anyone getting scammed!!

Etude House is, from what I can determine, a pretty popular and relatively affordably priced (in Korea!) trendy makeup line. I am Korean, but I don't speak or read a lick of the language so I'm really not sure what exactly the packaging says, but luckily they have a English site now! I paid $16 per lipstick in person, which is much more expensive than it is on their site so go me. :( Anyway, if you want to learn more about these particular lippies, click the jump.

NEW AT THE DRUGSTORE - Wet N Wild Highlighters and Metallic Liquid Lipsticks!

20 April 2016

I'm so bad at keeping up with Wet N Wild lately...and so of course they've been killing it. Part of their limited edition Summer 2016 collection consists of metallic liquid lipsticks (you had me at "metallic" tbh) and HIGHLIGHTERS. Okay, ya know this girl is all about the glow. I want my highlight to be visible from the moon and I'm always on the hunt for cheap highlighters that don't break the bank the way the beautiful Becca highlights do. I actually had no clue about this release until a coworker wore one of the lippies to work and spilled the beans. She saved me my usual WNW questing trip (I probably went to twenty different Walgreens to find the spring collection) and picked up everything for me! Anyway, this is pretty much just a first impressions/swatching post because I haven't played with these products long enough to feel comfortable giving a full on review but so far I'm quite pleased; spoiler alert!

Wet N Wild is so affordable that I never even bat a lash at purchasing entire collections; I don't know the individual prices but I do know that I owed her about $25 for six lip products and two highlighters. So, yeah, the entire collection (mind you, I don't have everything - there are cream highlighting sticks and also nail polishes in this collection) is super affordable. In retrospect, do you need everything? Nah, there are two nude lipsticks and two pink ones, and you can skip one and just pick up the tone you like best. Wet N Wild also has some of the best shade names in the makeup game...and they killed it this time. The comicbook and music nerd in me would have bought two of these simply for the names. But we'll get into that later. Here's a link to the Nouveau Cheap post about this collection if you want any more info!

Pacifica Skin Revival Micro Dermabrasion Scrub REVIEW

10 April 2016

IMG_6517Okay, so normally I like to test products out for a longer period of time than just one use. But this is a product that, considering the hefty price point and the tiny amount you get, I cannot stand. This review is going to go up ASAP so I can rehome this product to someone else who, hopefully, loves this product. Sadly, I did not. This is not intended to be a slight on Pacifica products as a whole. I have a handful of their products that I really enjoy (a couple of cleansers that should be getting some review love on here pretty soon!!) Plus, I love what the company stands for; it's cruelty free and all natural and also produced locally in the USA (holla at my Portland people!)
