Details on all of this and why I like it over at my fashion blog. I’m also giving away a $50 Amazon Giftcard in the post over there, if you were thinking of hauling anything.  High-res

IMATS LA was only last month and I haven’t really used all of the products I purchased there yet but already I’m yearning for some more.. it’s a sickness. To be fair, I have wanted the Balenciaga perfume for a million years and I am certainly going to be purchasing it next month. I am a big fan of Dr. Jart+ products and this new bb cream is calling my name — though from reviews I’ve seen it looks like it’ll be too dark for me. Still, I’m curious. I am also getting (gasp) bored of BB cream so want to try out some foundations, so the Koh Gen Do and YSL ones will be coming home with me soon.. in sample form (what am I, made of money? full sized bottles? HA).
JINsoo is a kind of cult fashion-circle nail line all the beauty editors I chat with talk about — keep an eye out for it and once you see it in Sephora definitely check it out. I need a good basecoat, this might be the one. As for Eyeko — it’s all about the endless pursuit for the perfect mascara, you know? And face oils.. you can never have enough face oils. Lip tar? When do I not want lip tar?
My list is so predictable. Have you tried any of these products? Should I splurge or skip? What are you lemming for, friends? High-res

Products that I would like for fall

Following Arabelle’s post about what she’s looking forward to for fall when it comes to products, here are a couple products that I want to try and why!

1. Shiseido Perfect Rouge in Gilded Wine (RS612) ($25): For the most part this year I have been controlling my lip product purchases because I surpassed Arabelle’s lip product collection and I have no idea how that happened. However, one of the samples that she gave me last year was one of the Perfect Rouge lipsticks, and I absolutely fell in love with the formula (completely underrated in my opinion, it’s a great formula), so I want to pick another one up. In addition, with my multitude of lipsticks, I’m missing deep purple colors which complement my skintone so it’s like killing two birds with one stone? Yeah? Justification is great? haha

2. Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Empress ($28): …I was totally going to list Raven as the color I wanted to buy but again Arabelle and I share the same brain AND SHE TOTALLY PICKED THAT ONE. :C I need deeper lip products okay I own a lot of the lighter end of things. The finish on these look really pretty as well and I want to compare it to my YSL Glossy Stain.

3. Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint (~$6): I have rediscovered my love of lip tints since I found a mini Benetint in my collection a couple weeks ago. I don’t particularly want to spend the money for a full-size Benetint so I want to try this Etude House one. And the packaging is adorable!

If you didn’t know, I’m going to be in Taiwan for the rest of the summer — 2 months?! — which means ASIAN BEAUTY PRODUCTS 4EVA AND EVA. Can’t wait to haul all these products at SASA in person! And the Skinfood store, and being able to play with all the Majolica Majorca products in person… drool. 
I’m making a pit stop in Tokyo too so hopefully I can pick up some products there, too. I’m bringing an extra bag just to haul back my beauty products.

Summer Wishlist
La Roche-Posay Physiological Cleansing Gel: My skin is seriously going bonkers, this is supposed to keep skin ‘perfectly pH balanced’ while not causing dryness or irritation. I see this everytime I commute and it’s really painful not to be able to buy it to test out. 
Supergoop! SPF 30+ Everyday UV Skin Travel: A friend at TV in the beauty department gushed over this awhile ago and I’m in the market for a sunscreen. The ones I’ve tried have broken me out, other than BB Cream, and while I love BB Cream I don’t want to put it on every other day. 
Yves Saint Laurent TOUCHE ÉCLAT: Undoubtedly one of the most hyped up concealers of the year so far, it’s spawned quite a few drugstore knockoffs but none that I’ve been quite compelled to try as of yet. I’m perfectly content with my Dermablend and Maybelline Dream Mousse concealers but I’ve almost hit pan on my Maybelline one and this has never gotten bad reviews. It’s kind of sad I don’t have it already. 
Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes: Have you guys seen the reviews of this everywhere? Nothing but good news. I’d love to try out the greens and blues. 
NARS Bronzing Powder: It’s stupid I don’t have one already because NARS Blush and Bronzers are easily the biggest things in the market and well loved. I have the E.L.F dupe for the bronzing duo but it’s very chalky and I’m tired of using it, I want the ~real~ bronzer. I am really into bronzer this season, but I can never find the perfect one.
