Latest haul from Korea (eBay) and cherry culture.
First up - K stuff.
Next up: Etude House Missing U Hand cream.
The panda tub is peach scented and works fine as a hand cream, nothing special really. I figured I would use up the hand cream and then add my own hand cream afterwards.
Lastly in my Korean haul I got the Skinfood Salmon concealer since it had good reviews online. The name also reminded me of the Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer though I knew the quality of the two would be drastically different (since Skinfood is more on par with drugstore quality in Korea and Eve Pearl is most definitely more high end).
Cherry Culture had 40% off a while back for NYX products only. Since NYX is practically the only brand I ever buy from CC I was happy to see the sale code on the website. I got some glitter (which is more like craft glitter than cosmetic glitter - so awful in fact that I took it to school and let the students go wild making xmas decorations with it rather than put it anywhere near my face), some excellent HD Grinding blushes (will do blush collection mentioning these blushes next week) and the Nude on Nude kit.
Makeup, makeup, makeup. I need to start doing some book reviews again - it's been all about makeup for too long (though I can't say I don't enjoy the makeup posts!). Since I got my Kindle though I've only read the free nonsense just 'cause I haven't got round to the idea of spending £5 on a "digital" book... I need to find a novel that's really worth reading about. 2011 hasn't been a good year for reading really. Unless you can count Diary of a Wimpy Kid books (well, I wanted to see what my students made such a fuss about... turns out they aren't half bad!).
On a random note, I have discovered I hate spiral stairs. I took the stairs in Belsize Park train station the other day (since I prefer to take stairs to lifts if I can). It was a weird feeling though, the stairs seemed to go on and on and I found myself getting dizzy and feeling sick just from looking at them. I guess I'd hate to live in a lighthouse.
Anyhoo, one more week to the two week Christmas holiday break. I have a whole backlog of posts to do so will be posting more then. In the mean time I'll be continuing using the very cheesy but nevertheless lovely Etude House products.
