IMG_7370

My beauty partner-in-crime, Catherine, and I recently decided to make some mistakes ordered some items from 3 Concept Eyes, which happens to be one of my top 3 favorite brands Of All Time 💯. While I get my greedy hands familiar with the new products, I thought I would share swatches & reviews of the products I already own as a brand collection post for the start of April.

Brand Collection: Innisfree 🌿

I had a lot of fun doing the Etude House posts a few months ago and I wanted to continue with the theme of brand-centric beauty posts by starting a brand collection series reviewing all of the items that I’ve owned/used from a specific company. This first one up is Innisfree!

Flushing has an abundance of Asian beauty stockists, but it’s still short of a few brands including a retail shop that carries Innisfree products. Last year, I took a trip to Guangzhou for a family matter and towards the end of my time there, decided to see if I could hunt down an Innisfree so I could try some things in person. I’m sure people who have easy access to Innisfree will think it pretty lame of me, but it was so exciting!!! Not nearly as soul-ascending an experience as Etude House, but exciting nonetheless.

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas! 🎄 WHO’S READY FOR SHOPPING. I saw an email in my inbox about Etude House’s 30% off Christmas event and wanted to share some pictures/reviews about some of the Etude House presents I’ve bought myself this year. The event started a few days ago, but lasts until December 27th so make sure you use the code CHRISTMAS2015 to get the discount!

I’ve made 3 Etude House purchases in the last year so I’ve split them up into two posts. Part two should be up in a few hours!

Rimmel Apocalips / Show Off Lip Lacquers Review

RML_product

I’ve been on a lip color kick for months and months with a complete and utter disregard of my wallet’s soft sad whispers of “noooooo stop you don’t need that.” My newest favorite addition to my collection are the Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquers, which I’ve been lusting after since they launched in the UK last year. They finally made their US debut in June of this year, but as the Show Off Lip Lacquers and because I am, on occasion, a self-indulgent fool, I ended up buying them off ASOS during a summer sale for their original name. YEAH I KNOW. Don’t worry, I’m judging me too.

Of the 14 space-themed shades, I picked up Luna, a neutral peach pink, and Big Bang, a blue-based red, both of which have already seen a lot of love from the beauty blogosphere. All the internet love makes this post questionable levels of helpfulness since so many people have already spoken about them, but I think they’re phenomenal and still worth sharing. Read More
