The Peripera shipment has finally arrived! We have brougt in 24 beautiful shades of Peripera's My Color Lips lipsticks and 32 shades of Wonder Kiss Lip Glosses,  7 lovely shades of the Smile Fit Blusher from pinks, oranges and even a glowing white shade to suit anyones' skin, 3 shades of My Skin Pacts, as well as Peripera's famous Wonder Touch Eyeshadow palettes. What else? Of course we have to bring in Peripera's BB creams entitled "I Love BB" creams in both Natural and Light shades! OK, so we've updated you on the latest; but what is so great about Peripera? 

As you can see in this photo of the My Color Lips lipsticks, the design is splendid as are the lipsticks themselves. We did some surveying and through our findings, our female customers say "You can’t truly appreciate this lipsticks packaging without holding it in your hand." The lid is covered in a lace and flowers  design that is slightly 3D, yes the flowers pop out a bit from the surface. The lipstick casing is a metallic pink. Not an offensive, in your face pink but a nice dull pink. The lipstick is controlled by a knob at the bottom of the lipstick giving it the last stage of dimension.

As with the eyeshadow palette, people we surveyed said in their opinions that this is a must-have carrying eyeshadow palette. The packaging itself is magenta-pink which draws your attention right away in compliments to the beautiful designs on the top cover. When you open the palette, that's a-whole-nother story. The 6 shades inside are perfect for a daily, sweet and gentle look. With just these 6 simple shades, you can create many looks from innocent, to elegant, to sassy and much more!

Of course, we saved one of the all-time-favorite items for last; the BB Creams! Peripera’s “I Love BB” Creams will be arriving as well, in two different shades. One known as “Light” and the other is “Natural”.  The formula is a lightweight substance that goes onto your skin smoothly without feeling like you are trapping your skin’s oxygen flow. The dewiness of these BB Creams are incredible as it also gives your skin a healthy glowing finish while diminishing the look of red spots, acne marks and uneven skin tones. All you really need is one dime-sized pump onto your hand or brush and your skin is good to go for an entire day.

Vivi Bory - Lioele Beyond Solution BB Cream

2 weeks ago, I picked up a tube of the Lioele Beyond the Solution BB cream from Pretty and Cute. I've been wanting to test out a foundation with a little more coverage than the Water Drop BB (which I am absolutely in love with). The reason is, you all know I have some freckles on my cheeks, and for everyday occasions, a light coverage BB cream that doesn't hide any of my freckles is fine with me; but for those special occasions where I want to look my best, whether it's attending an important event, or standing in front of the camera for a photo-shoot, that's where Beyond The Solution comes in.

The texture of the BB cream is much thicker than any of the others th
at I have tried, thus, better coverage. I figured that after I applied it to my face, I had to let it sit for about 2 minutes before applying any other beauty products to my face. It goes on thick and sort of sticky at first, but after a few minutes, my skin feels much smoother than before.. But sometimes, that's just the price you pay for better coverage. Be patient, it's worth it. What I love most about it, is it lasts for a long time.. I didn't worry about touching up or reapplying.. And with this product, a tiny amount is all you need, because it expands over time.

After my first time using it, I felt like a couple pimples came out of nowhere (one below my chin and the other above my lips), but I shouldn't blame it on the BB since I've had quite a share of greasy foods those past couple days.. Anyway, the BB Cream did an incredible job concealing those bumpy imperfections. Oh, and my annoying under-eye circles!! Since I can never seem to permanently get rid of them, Beyond the Solution helped me hide them pretty well, giving me that extra boost of confidence anywhere I go. Now, two weeks later, I haven't seen any random zits, so if it did cause those earlier ones, they also improve over time.

If you haven't picked up a bottle of Lioele's Beyond the Solution BB Cream yet, I say, try it out.. There are a couple different sizes that you can choose from.. Get a small tube if you're just planning to give it a shot, and if it works well for you, grab the bigger sizes.. It'll last much longer.... Plus, the packaging is incredibly cute!

Where I apply little dabs of the BB cream

P.S. make sure you know what shade you are..
it goes on a bit lighter, so it brightens up your face. You could
tone it down a bit by applying a light dust of bronzer over your face,
and apply a 2nd layer of bronzer (or blush) over area of the face that you
want to accent (such as your cheeks, sides of your forehead, and chin).

A Walk-In Customer's Review on Tonymoly's Ice Queen Pack!

Jenny Chau, a walk-in customer of ours created this blog review on the Tonymoly Ice Queen product but does not have an official blog website to post it, so we thought we would post this for her and share with our fans! Jenny hopes you found her experience with this item helpful and useful!

"I recently came back from a month long trip to Vietnam and had acquired some serious sun burns to my body and face. I bought this wondering if it could deliver in moisture, skin toning, and burn relief. I am happy to say that I am pleasantly surprised by this product. I was shocked to see that the texture, upon opening it, isn’t creamy as the packaging implies.

The texture is actually similar to bird’s nest soup, for those of you who have tried/seen it. I suppose you can say it’s also like finely diced jello. The feel of the product is almost kind of elastic and the little beads of gel aren’t easy to melt. The instructions say to put it in the refrigerator for the full effect of the product. I left it in there for about half an hour and applied it on after a shower. It felt SUUUPER cool on my face and the stinging from my sunburn just disappeared. As small as the product looks, you don’t have to use very much of it so it will probably last a while. After a bit, the product soaks into the skin and becomes sticky, probably from body temperature. I left it on for the specified amount of time and when I washed it off, my skin felt plump, moisturized, and calm. My skin tone was visibly evened out, though only a little, whereas the full benefits come with repeated use.

The moisture was so abundant that the redness and flaky, dried skin of my face were reduced for most of the day. I have used this product 2 days a week for approximately 2 months and my combination skin has become a lot less finicky. I also find that I use less moisturizer and primer during my makeup routine. The only downside to this product would be the really strong scent of the gel and also the packaging, which I think isn’t very sanitary since you have to dip your fingers/brush/whatever applicator you choose into the product. The smell is kind of like a really strong fruity and floral perfume, nothing at all like ice cream. I’ve gotten a few headaches from using it. The scent stays in your skin for a majority of the day but becomes lighter, which is a good thing. Another problem with the product may be that a majority of the cooling effects are from physically lowering its temperature with the fridge, lol. But it does provide very good moisture and skin-calming benefits. I will certainly repurchase.

Pros: interesting texture, moisturizing, calming, skin-tone evening, reasonable price
Cons: strong smell, messy packaging, cool-sensation from external influence (I.e. fridge)"

Do you like to apply eyeshadow regularly, but do not like the inconvenience of carrying or using both an eyeshadow palette as well as a brush or applicator? Lioele created an eyeshadow stick that can be used wherever you are, whenever you wish. Simply pull off the cap as you would a regular writing pen and apply as desired. The great thing about these eyeshadow sticks is they come in 6 different beautiful shades that can be used together or separately. Use a light soft color for a daily shadow or use a thicker amount of shadow for a great night out.

Customer: "Do you have any tips applying the Lioele Real Stick Eyeshadow?"

Us: Sure! Start with your favorite shade of the eyeshadow stick and apply all over your lid as shown in Step 1 above. Step 2: Use the pad of your index or middle finger and gently smooth the shadow across your lid for a more natural effect. Step 3: Take the shadow stick and apply slightly in the tear ducts of your eyes and across the lid once more. Step 4: The final step is to take an eyeshadow brush (use a Q-tip or applicator if you do not own an eyeshadow brush) and brush it across the lid to give it that last finishing touch.

For best results: Apply a thin-brushed liquid eyeliner across your upper lid, closest to the lash line. Create a "winged" effect if so desired. For a daily look, do not wing out the end too far. Also, curl your lashes and apply a light layer of your favorite dark mascara.

Since this shadow does goes on smooth and does not contain loose powders, the vibrant colors will stay on your lids for a majority of the day! If you would like to add more shadow or enhance your look, just take out the shadow stick and apply as desired. Since it is not powder-based, you are able to use the pad of your finger to blend the colors together, or simply with your skin as desired. 

What are our customers saying about this product?
