Actually, I have been away from my blog for more than a week...that is a record in my book. I am sorry for that, but I have been receiving too little thingies to post and honestly...my personal life was not that brilliant either.
So I am a bit in need of a special agent who will lift me into better spirits.
Which brings me to Korean Cosmetics!...Etude House has been releasing a new line and it is called Code B.
So, we have a lady in charge...she is a feisty Asian lady who is not shy to use eyecatching makeup.
I really wanted it all, however, as I shy away from Gmarket lately (Customs at my country has been hunting on Gmarket packages too much', so it was hardly worth it anymore) I had to limit my choices.
And I wanted one of the eyeshadows the most.
Although I loved the natural colour scheme of all of them, I decided to go for the Khaki one, as I have had an ungoing love afair with a khaki MAC eyeshadow from one of their Limited Edition collections in 2005...I wanted a similar colour or a dupe...
So, the Code B gadget that I bought was an eyeshadow in colour 04 in Strong Khaki.
Mmm, the case looks a bit plastic and is not as girly as the usual form that Etude B has...I is a bit cheap-looking, IMO.
The content is of a better quality!!!! Ohh, I really love the buttery texture which makes it a perfect value! This colour is really similar to the MAC one, only a tad cooler.
By the way, I bought the eyeshadow on ebay from a seller named ohalice on ebay.
Another fab discovery has been the Maquillage Alexander Wang lipstick and lipgloss collection. I have been buying the sample card on bobodave.com.
I often buy sample cards, if they are available. Sample cards are a perfect way to discover the true colour of a lipstick or lipgloss.
Honestly, I love so many colours of this card...I have been loving the RS721 for its deeper glow on the mouth, and the tiny green shimmer. It is one of the Moisture Rouge Sheer types lipsticks.
The Moisture Rouge Colour On types are even more superior, as the deliver incredible moisture and a fantastically natural, but lip-enhancing quality.
