Review: Peripera Lumi Pang Lip Gloss (with REAL FRUIT EXTRACTS!)

IMG_3425

I bought two Peripera Lumi Pang lip glosses because I saw a raving review of these online and couldn’t resist getting these faced with a BOGO deal on Clio’s NYC Union Sq grand opening. They’re $18USD each and you can get these priced at $7 from other e-tailers (just be mindful of shipping since they are shipped straight from Korea, for these, I suggest RoseRoseShop priced at $6.99 if you plan to buy a few more items n your order). I’ll review the Cushion Lips in a future post.

I’m drawn to Reds and Corals and I realize that these two shades don’t look too different out of the boxes but the RD05 “Sensual” has a berry tint to it (and Peri’s recommended shade) and the RD03 “Hi Twenty” is more coral.  (more…)

Store Visit: Club Clio in Union Sq, NYC Manhattan

Club Clio had opened it’s first Manhattan store back in Jan 2015 and I didn’t start my blog until today so I thought I would share some things from my first visit and some things I’ve learned since opening day.

Value

I visited early Feb, a month after grand opening and they still had Grand Opening specials. The most enticing offer to me was the Buy One Get One Free offer on all Peripera lip products! The second promo I snagged was the Buy 10 Sheet Masks and get 5 Free (priced at $1 per sheet mask). So for $10, you get 15 masks in total – sure, I can try those out! They also had BOGO on their Goodal Want Sleeping Packs but priced at $40 each (while online prices were cheaper) I didn’t pull the trigger on those.  (more…)

Hello world! Why I EXIST

Hi there! 

I’m Cecilia and I’m starting this blog to share and keep track of my beauty journey. Over the years, I grew more and more of a fan of Asian beauty items because of their innovation, attractive/cute packaging, affordability and proven results. Korean products especially have earned a place in my heart.

With so many products and options, it got so overwhelming that I would search blog or youtube reviews before committing to buy, test products and research online to understand this whole new level of beauty. After 3 years of going through the learning curve, I think I can finally say that I know a thing or two about Asian beauty and the abundant offerings it has!

I’m a freckled Chinese-American located in New York City and the Asian beauty trend is taking this city (and the rest of the world) by storm! I’m witnessing brick and mortar stores pop up, more ecommerce sites offering international shipping (with English descriptions) and more buzz on beauty forums. It’s an exciting place to be right now (well, maybe Myeongdong is better?) and I want to share my passion with anyone who wants to experience this with me!

Hopefully this blog will be a comprehensive resource on Asian beauty shopping in NYC, provide helpful reviews on more obscure products and be your source for some beauty excitement!
