There’s something infectious about the invasion of Korean & Japanese cosmetics. Not only do they have the higher end products, but they have affordable beauty products as well! And some of the packaging is beyond adorable. Some other brands have picked up on the trend, with products that just make you go Awwww…
How adorable is this? And you could ask, what is it? I actually came across this when I was watching a Youtube video, where a blogger recommended this powder as a highlighter that is also photo friendly. (You don’t want that white cast showing up in your pictures!) This drugstore staple brand Physicians Formula, also offers this cute compact in a blush as well!
And how cute is this? Each one is a stick of perfume, portable, & you don’t have to worry about anything leaking in your bag!
I think this is beautiful.. A blush / bronzer in 1, with 2 shades named after 2 famous tv couples! One is Ross and Rachel, which is more of a pink blush, and then Carrie & Big, which is a more of an orangey shade. And you? Which soul mate are you?
Love sweets? Love bubble baths? I sure do! If you haven’t heard of bath bombs, (made popular by LUSH) which are basically scented bath fizzies, (usually shaped in a ball) that you can drop into bath water for moisturizing & scented experience. Now they have bath fizzies in the shape of candy & macarons! I think this makes for a great gift! Drop them into your bath water & watch them melt! Enjoy the sweet scent, & relaxing bath!

“My milkshake brings all the boys in the yard.. And they like it, better than yours..” This actually might bring some boys to your yard.. For Fizz & Bubble has created not 1, but 6 different confections for you to choose from! And comes with a set of different scented combination of bath bombs! Mr. Bubble, has made a similar creation, but placed it in a cocktail shaker, & has 3 different scent combinations for you to choose from! Perhaps you like your martini shaken, not stirred?
Royal & Langnickel, a British based brush company, has been well known for their paint & watercolor brushes! However, recently they started a line of makeup brushes, which will be sold in the US at Walmart! However, until then you can buy them straight off their US based website! And all of them are affordable! This collection of makeup brushes, are for those who are hopeless romantics at heart. They’ve named each collection after love. i.e. another brush set is named Love is Patience, each in a lovely pastel shade! And also comes in a convenient travel case!
Etude House, a popular K beauty brand, has some of the cutest packaging of all! And can you believe that each one is a different scented hand cream? Portable, adorable, & can fit in your bag!
Too Faced Cosmetics I think has some of the most adorable products on the market. First they started out with their Chocolate Bar Eye shadow Palette, which is mixed with real cocoa powder! MMmm makeup never smelled so good when it smells like chocolate.. And then they made a Peanut Butter & Jelly inspired palette, and now this one inspired by sweets! There is something to be said when a company puts thought into their packaging as well as their products! Check out their website for more!

They are sold on their website, Amazon, as well as some drugstores. theBalm Cosmetics are actually really popular among vloggers on Youtube! These 3, (which are also sold separately) happen to be their most popular highlighters! Click on the link for their website or check them out on Amazon!

In this box that could easily pass for candy, this European based makeup brand is making their debut stateside! So convenient & small enough for travel, it has a bronzer, highlighter, & blush all in 1 compact! Find them at your local Target, Ulta, or shop on their US based website!
Doesn’t this look yum? If you haven’t already heard of this British import, their specialty is in bath & body products, that come in all kinds of sweet scents! In this set, you get a face wash, hand & foot creams, shower gel, body scrub, body butter, loofah, & all in a pink zip up bag! Time to bring out the girly side in the shower!
Who knew that bath time could be so much fun? You could have an exfoliator, in the shape of a starfish, with 1 side made of cotton microfiber, & the other side made from hemp; you could shower & exfoliate all in 1 tool! The above yellow loofah which is sold at Walmart, has little sponges inserted inside, to give you an extra lather when you wash! And finally the Cute Animal Shape Bath Sponge, has an adorable animal holding onto your loofah for you while you shower! Not only does it come with a pig, you can get it with a rabbit, teddy bear or duck as well!
And finally what are these? The one on the left is a foot scrub, infused with shower gel that has olive oil, glycerin, vitamins A & E, & shea butter to keep your feet super soft! And the one on the right are gel infused booties, intended to moisturize your feet whether you’re lying down or walking around the house! And has a non skid surface on the bottom, so that you’re not slipping & sliding all over the floor! What I can’t stand about moisturizing my feet, is that I’m unable to do anything afterwards without stepping in my moisturizer. Therefore usually, I moisturize them right before I go to sleep to avoid the problem. Now with these booties, you can walk around & moisturize your feet at the same time!
I literally could keep going on, but I figure why not just give people a sampling? I wrote this article mainly because I love products that feel personalized, or have a sense of individuality, or even humor to them. How boring would the world be if all our possessions looked the same? And why not? Enjoy being a girl!
