apieu rilakkuma collection beauty

At last my favourite Japanese San-X (Sanrio) character Rilakkuma gets its very own makeup collaboration with A’Pieu! Of course there was not a chance in the world I wouldn’t pick up some stuff to try. A’pieu has been unknown territory for me, so what better time to try some of their products? These collaborations are for the most part repackaged existing products anyway. Let’s have a look! View Post


I’m back with another kbeauty post starring popular roadshop brand Holika Holika who recently launched a collection featuring the uber-cute Gudetama! – Gudewhat? If you’re not familiar with this Japanese lazy egg character from Sanrio, go check out this great post. The collection is pretty massive and contains make-up, skin care and hair care products. Today I’ll be reviewing some of the makeup products that I bought before moving onto skin care (the mask sheet) in a different post because this was getting too long. Someone was getting way too egg-cited while taking pictures!

Who remembers the days before Real Techniques? The struggle of finding good quality makeup brushes is probably nothing more than a distant memory now but it used to be very different. Back then people would actually use those brushes and sponge tip applicators that came with the palettes because the cheap alternatives were hardly worth the money. It was that or save your money for a single MAC brush at a time. View Post


Have you ever found yourself at the makeup counter or drug store trying every shade of that hot new foundation everyone raves about, but failing to find one right for you? You’re not the only one. As a pale girl, I find it quite a struggle to review foundations since most of them don’t offer a shade that’s light enough for my skin tone. The solution? Liquid pigments that you can mix in with your foundation to create your custom shade! View Post


If you have been looking into K-beauty, chances are the Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly BB Cream has popped up at one point or another. This affordable Korean BB cream has been making waves in the Korean beauty world as well as online, ever since it launched a couple of years ago. After trying it myself I realized there’s more to this jelly product than just its cute looks.  View Post


Ever since I tried my first cleansing oil, I haven’t looked back. Using oils to cleanse is my °1 way to get all of the grub off of my face. If you’re still using cleansing milk (hello 1990 is calling you and it wants its cleansing milk back), the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm might convert you. View Post


Those of you who have been following this blog for a while probably have noticed: I don’t talk about nail polish as often anymore. It used to be the makeup item I loved to collect the most but as I was watching my stash pile up I got less interested and started to focus on other things. That was until the L’Oréal Color Riche Vernis à l’Huile nail polishes hit my doorstep. View Post


If you’ve been a long-time reader of this blog you’ll know I love the Sensual range from Kenzoki (proof: herehere). So when I received this Kenzoki Sensual Hands Balm at an event, I knew I was going to be in for a treat. The comforting rice scent is simply divine, which is why this is my current go-to hand cream before I go to bed. View Post


Excitement overload when these Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid lipsticks dropped on my doorstep. Liquid lipsticks are being dropped all over the place, but the comfy aspect of these was what got me intrigued. I do love me a bright matte lip, but the drying feeling puts me off so much! Let’s see if these live up to their promise.. View Post
