I actually hauled these goodies a longggg time ago, but have only just had the chance to write about them now.   Vidi Vici is a premium Korean brand which is sold in various spots across Asia.  Their products do really appeal to me, as they have quite a chic look and are quite interesting. […]

How did I miss this super cute Christmas collection from Tony Moly?  It’s the Happy Holiday collection and there are some limited edition colours in special cute packaging.  Christmas specific collections from Korea are uncommon, so this is a really sweet collection. Shame I found out about it so late – anything ordered now won’t […]

A Lightbulb Moment? Shu Uemura The Lightbulb Fluid Foundation 554 Medium Sand Review!

Shu-Uemura-The-Lightbulb-Fluid-Foundation-Review.jpg

Getting Shu Uemura’s newest foundation offering, The Lightbulb Liquid Foundation, got me thinking about my previous experiences with Shu Uemura bases.  I have used their Nobara cream compact and stick foundation – both are quite heavy bases and I have never really tried any of their more liquid textures.  The Lightbulb foundation is like it […]

Jill-Stuart-Moist-Silk-Jelly-Foundation-and-Secret-Control-Concealer-Review.jpg

Jill Stuart is such an irresistible brand for me, even though I can’t say that I have brilliant experiences with their products – I barely use any of the powder foundations i have from their brand (and they ain’t cheap!).  I just love the packaging and scent of the products though and well…I guess I […]

The-Face-Shop-Black-Label-Lipsticks-in-Pinky-Brown-and-Lady-Wine-Swatches-and-Review.jpg

The Face Shop is a Korean beauty brand, perhaps less well known than her sisters, Etude House and Tony Moly, but also more understated and elegant.  Like Innisfree, The Face Shop tries to create products based around an organic ethos and with a natural vibe (i.e. Chia Seed moisturiser, Mango Seed Cream etc.).  I find […]

Every time I tell myself that I won’t be investing in any new make up, a brand comes out with something totally yummy looking that I need to indulge in.  Etude House is one of those brands that keep releasing extremely creative ranges – even though I can’t say I like everything they release I […]

DHC-Q10-Base-Make-Up-Moisture-Care-Liquid-Foundation-Review-.jpg

Another day, another foundation.  I am a foundation addict.  I guess the fact is our skin changes all the time so what we want in a foundation changes too.  At the moment I have a few fail proof favourites; RMK Creamy Foundation, MAC Face and Body, Estee Lauder Doublewear Light (I am still trying to […]

Holika-Holika-Jewelight-Waterproof-Eyeliner-Summer-Colours-Review-1.jpg

I couldn’t resist these four new summer colours from Holika Holika, which are part of their Jewel-light waterproof eyeliner range.   They are unmistakably bright and fun – also affordable to try so I bought all four.  There is – 17. Pink Ballerina, 18. Coral Orange, 19. Emerald Green and 20. Sapphire Blue. These differ […]

Etude House And Rose Collection for Autumn 2013

Etude-House-And-Rose-Collection-for-Fall_Autumn-2013-Beauty-Junkie-on-a-Budget.jpg

I don’t necessarily like everything that Etude House releases – I find the quality of Japanese brands generally is more consistent than Korean – however, I completely, totally love how creative and innovative they are with their new releases.  They somehow manage to look like ‘Etude House’ but always come up with a totally new […]

DHC Launches in Selfridges!

DHC-Deep-Cleansing-Oil.jpg

Maybe it’s because I have such a big interest in Japanese brands anyway, I forget that not everyone has heard of or tried DHC.   DHC is a major brand in Asia with a vast range of products.  But if you have never heard of them before or given them a try, now you have […]
