five adorable cat themed cosmetics

cat themed cosmetics

Going to the makeup section of a department store can get pretty overwhelming.  There are so many products to choose from.  You’d need to spend hours to take a look at them all (sometimes I do!).  In that respect, Asian makeup does better than western brands.  A lot of collections have adorable and eye-catching packaging.

However, products which were originally created for Asian markets are now more accessible and in huge demand all over the world. I’ve been dabbling myself in Korean beauty products and trends for a little while now after seeing them pop up online, discovering a few great K-beauty online stores and also shopping up a storm during my Asia holidays. So, if you aren’t quite sure what all the hype is about I’m about to fill you in faster than you can fill up a shopping cart of Tony Moly.  Continue reading

Holika Holika Baby Silky Foot One Shot Peeling
