Whispers of Innisfree Holiday 2015 (Green Christmas Collection) + Limited Edition Long Wear Cushion

I haven't seen any news briefs about Innisfree Holiday 2015 myself (that's right, ur girl follows the Korean news to bring you these updates), but Beautiful Buns seems to have the jump on the details of this year's Green Christmas collection, which includes a special edition Long Wear Cushion, and some really beautiful homeware and body care gift sets. Read about the entire holiday collection at Beautiful Buns.

Pony Effect - First Swatches

I mentioned Pony Makeup Artist's new makeup line the Pony Effect last week. It was due to launch this Monday, 11/9, but according to some, it is already available for purchase at select online retailers, if you live in South Korea. For those of you living in Korea, if you must know ;) GSSHOP is where the first sighting was made. (Thank you to /u/candyillusions at the Asian Beauty subreddit.)

But for the rest of us, never fear, I have more details for you. The line concept is "That Girl" and according to Pony, "That Girl" is a party girl. The line aims to give you the look of the girl that everyone remembers after a night out on the town.

The line consists of 4 nail polishes, 3 lipsticks, a contouring palette, brushes, and an eyeshadow palette. Prices range from 18000 KRW to 45000 KRW and there seem to be value sets available. At least for now, at the time of launch. The line will be available at Memebox. 

Son and Park New Lip Crayons and Holiday Sets

I'm a huge fan of the formula of Son and Park's matte lip crayons and am excited to report that they've come out with a new color called Dry Flower (pictured on left). It's basically the biggest trending color in Korea right now and immediately sold out upon launch. They've restocked it at their official website, though I'm not sure how long it'll take until it sells out once more. :) Retails for 18000 KRW. 

They are also planning to sell holiday value sets of the lip crayons. Pictured at top right is the Red Rosies contains the colors 07 Flash Red, 13 Cool Red, and 22 Rich Red.

Pictured at bottom right is the Sugar Rosies set which contains 06 Sugar Tint, 12 Grape Tint, and 23, an Argan Oil Lip Balm.

Purchases of these sets are on a 2+1 deal. (Buy 2 sets, get 1 set free). 

The holiday sets haven't been launched online as of yet, but when they are, the set will be available for purchase through a shipping service like

A'pieu has 2 new high coverage stick bb creams in shades 21 light beige, and 23 natural beige for 9000 KRW.

Lancome Spring 2016 to debut in January 2nd in Japan

Lancome is obviously not a Korean brand, but I include them on my watch list since they come out with products using Korean technologies like the cushion compact. Plus, look at that packaging. I die. I had to include them. They've released details on their new Spring 2016 line which you can read all about over at Rouge Deluxe.

Stay tuned for the latest skincare releases...
