Missha Essence Review

I’ve been curious about K-beauty for a really long time. For anyone not familiar, K-Beauty is short for Korean Beauty – specifically, South Korean.

Supposedly, its considered to have a superior approach to skincare by many in the beauty industry. The question is whether this is just hype or not?

I haven’t done enough research to comfortably state whether the statements are true or just gossip. However, the information is easily found on the internet and around the beauty community, in case you wanted to read and form an opinion of your own.

BH Cosmetics’ Modern Matte Eyeshadow Palette Swatches & Review

In my very humble opinion, I think that if you love creating make up looks, its important to have a few varying colors of matte shades to work with.  I’ve been in serious need of matte shadows, but finding a decent matte at a decent cost is no small task.  And lately, my funds are limited.

Luckily, the world has BH Cosmetics to come to the rescue!  A company that I love simply because it allows a broke girl like me to indulge in my beauty addiction.
