Elixir Superieur Cleansing Foam Type II Moisturizing

Sorry for the sporadic posting again. It's because I've moved, yet again, for the 7th (or is it 8th?) time in the past 10 years. Hubby and I are finally getting kind of tired of moving around (kind of, ha!), so here's hoping we'll stay for a while. Yes, that means I'm no longer in SF *sniff* Had just a great time there and was loathed to leave T.T

As always, not having time to post doesn't mean I've stopped using my skincare and cosmetic goodies. Quite the opposite and I've finished a bunch of travel/trial size items during the past few months. Hubby and I had to drive out to scout for a new place, then move our stuff over, so there were hotel stays and whatnot where travel/trial size toiletries were super convenient. Anyway, one of the things I used up during trips back and forth was this 8g tube of Elixir Superieur Cleansing Foam Type II Moisturizing.

Buxom Full-On Lip Polish Part II

Another year, another Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Lips, edition 2013 ^.^ This Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in the color Dolly is a part of this set.

I really love these sets, because the travel sizes are just perfect in my humble opinion. And because I would never finish a full size. The only down side to these sets are the repeats. For example, with this set I now have tried Buxom twice (Buxom Full-On Lip Polish Diamond April edition 2011), Laura Mercier also twice (Laura Mercier Lip Glace Rose edition 2011, and Baby Doll edition 2012), Fresh (Fresh Sugar Rose Mini Tinted Lip Treatment edition 2011), as well as Tarte (Tarte LipSurgence Natural Matte Lip Tint Hope edition 2012). Bite Beauty was also in the edition 2012 set, but it was a different product, a lip gloss (Bite Beauty Lip Shine) versus edition 2013's lip pencil, so I don't count it as a "repeat". I do admit I very much welcome the Fresh and Tarte repeats, but everything else I'd rather switch up for some variety. If they must repeat the brand, then I'd rather try a different product from that brand, rather than the same product in a different color.

Etude House Tear Drop Eye Liner

I picked up these Etude House Tear Drop Eye Liners at the same time as the Proof 10 Eye Primer. These look interesting enough, and they were quite affordable at $3-4 a piece so why not, right? There are 4 colors: 1 White Tear, 2 Khaki Gold Tear, 3 Pearl Tear, and 4 Sunlight Tear. I purchased all 4 colors.

TonyMoly Face Mix Eye Primer

The last of the Korean eye primers I got is TonyMoly Face Mix Eye Primer. It's an itty bitty little tube - 4g may be? Less than half the size of Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer, which holds 10g (the packaging says so...)! I believe this item is going to be or has been discontinued, because I can't find it on TonyMoly's English website. Instead, I found a "Berry Lovely Girl Eye Primer."

Nature Republic Botanical Eye Primer

In addition to Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer and Holika Holika Fitting Veil Eye Primer, I also picked up a tube of Nature Republic Botanical Eye Primer. I'm not sure what's so "botanical" about it, probably because I'm Korean-illiterate, but perhaps there's nothing much to begin with...

Holika Holika Fitting Veil Eye Primer SPF15 PA+

I was looking into Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer, and while at it I also picked up a few more eye primers from other Korean brands, you know for variety's sake ^.^ Among those is Holika Holika Fitting Veil Eye Primer SPF15 PA+

Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer

This Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer is also a recommendation from another reader, Ann. I have to say, all the recommendations I've received so far from readers have been fantastic, and this one is no different! Thank you so much gals and guys! Keep it coming! ^.^

Lioele Miniature Special Set

After Dr.Jart+ The Original BB Set, I tried this Lioele Miniature Special Set, which includes 5mL each of Fresh Sunscreen SPF45 PA++, Blooming Shimmer Pearl Base Pink, Beyond the Solution BB Cream, and Water Drop BB SPF27 PA++. 

The good is that all the tubes in this set are sealed in manufacturer's shrink wrap, which is quite rare for a trial set. The not so good is that all the items are scented. The fragrance doesn't bother me, but I do wish they take it down a notch.

Victoria's Secret HyperGloss Eye Shimmer Part II

I loved the first three colors of Victoria's Secret HyperGloss Eye Shimmer, particularly Night Lights and Moon Lights, I went back to see if there were other colors available. There were, namely Diamond Lights from the winter 2012 Diamonds After Dark Collection, and Star Lights.

Clio Waterproof Liner Twisturn

In addition to the Clio Waterproof Pen Liner, I also picked up the Clio Waterproof Liner Twisturn. Whereas the Pen Liners are felt tip pens, these Twisturn ones are brush tip pens. A reader, Nick, recommended both, and since the Pen Liners worked out well, I figured I'd give these a try too ^.^

There are 8 colors available:
- 1 Star Silver
- 2 Star Gold
- 3 Brown Earth
- 4 Urban Khaki
- 5 Stage Navy
- 6 Night Purple
- 7 Club Black (shimmery black)
- 8 Urban Black (matte black)
