Click the photo^ to watch the cute and sad story~
And yes, the cute handcreams were also endorsed by Shinee!~ ;D OMO! Our cellphone releases electromagnetic radiation that makes these bees dizzy~ they can’t find their way back home @.@
“Missing U, Bee Happy” consists of:
- Hand Cream (4 Characters)- hypoallergenic formula and organic ingredients
- Lip Care (4 Characters)- sweet fragrance and moisturizing honey
- Facial Pack (2 Types, Overnight and Wash-Off)- honey texture, honey jar design and moisturizing honey
And here they are!~ The Missing U line up ;)
Hi~ I am Queen Bee! (Rose Fragrance)
I rule the worker bees, lay eggs and make royal jelly for the babies. The bee population is in decline and we need your help!
Hi~ I am Honey Bee! (Acacia Fragrance)
I work hard to serve the Queen and make honey for the hive. I play a vital role in reproduction of flowering plants by helping to spread pollen. Protect us, please.
Hi~ I am Lady Bug! (Chestnut Blossom)
I can fly like my friends the bees and I protect crops from insect pests. My bee friends need protection from disease and pests.
Hi~ I am Baby Bee! (Citrus Baby Powder)
I can’t fly yet so I just hang out in the hive eating honey. But lately, more and more bees are disappearing and soon it will be hard for me to get my honey. Please help us.
I got my Lady Bug friend when I won for having my photo taken at Etude House Robinson’s Metro East Branch! Kamsa hamnida for being so generous :>
The cute hexagonal box that houses my Lady Bug friend is filled with information! Every side had information written on it! Well done! Plus it was printed with Soy Ink~ ;D following its environmental efforts!~
“YESSSSSS!!!!” That was the first word that I thought of when I read the “upcoming stores" list on Princess Talk! My Home town mall! XD ~,~ Now, Etude House is just a tricycle ride away :>
So before going home~ Princess Abee, who is an Etude House addict too ;), and I went to see the new store! <3
I love the size :> I miss the small Etude House at SM Mega XD Am I weird??? :)) There is something about small boutiques that makes them more appealing to me :> Oh the very nice SA who took photos for us :> Kamsa hamnida! She recognized me :D she was an SA at SM Masinag, where all the nicest SAs are :D, & now she’s stationed at Rob :> So very nice :D
Here’s a mini story :)
Annyong haseyo! SHINee’s back… SHINee’s back… SHINee’s back back back back!!! I’m so curious yeah!~ kekeke Why is this bb cream called Clear BB Lotion??? @,@ Well, I’ve got a few theories which later on I will explain :)
So this is another very cute and very loved bb cream from Etude House :> It’s called SHINISTAR Clear BB Lotion, a SHINee Special Edition! (Special Edition meaning it’s a limited edition meaning the line will not be permanent :«<)
A plus factor why you should get this is that it has SPF 20 PA ++ :)
The packaging says ‘Whitening' I used this before and after summer time… I think it does help to get back the color of your skin and lighten it a bit more! I used this with Etude House’s O2 White Sun Cream.
The packaging is SHINee-inspired~ baby pink and pearl aqua! A mixture of Etude House’s pink girly touch and SHINee’s fan color <3 What a nice tribute to Shawols! :)
Let’s go to the mall! :) Shop shop shop :> oh~~ shopping fever cause my birthday is coming up and I’m getting old @,@ I want to stay child like forever!!! XD Spent like 3 days in the mall and got great deals :D :> So that I won’t feel too greedy with these goodies I’ll think of them as early birthday gifts :))
Got necessary things like a cleaning cloth and some plastic storage boxes! gotta keep my work space clean :)
This is really a NEED not a want, k!~ I needed a new card holder since my old one broke down ~,~
It’s really pretty right? :» OMO @,@ So glad it did not cost a fortune! Got this at EGG! They have loads and LOADS of pretty stuff!! <333 Eiffel Tower, Paris :>
Not only is it pretty but also very very handy! Could carry a lot of cards!!! (~ahem~ 20 cards!)
A trip to the mall is not complete without visiting Etude House :) kekeke~ I wanted to visit Etude to check out the ongoing sale at SM Megamall branch~
Got to take home nail stuff :)~! See the pretty beige/pink/shimmery nail color? It looks really pretty when applied :>
These fantastic babies were on sale!!! Tear drop & Snowflake styled nail bling bling :) Costs 40 pesos a pack!!!
New nail polishes at Etude House called Look at My Cotton Candy Nails! :) Pretty pastel colors! :)
Mommy was the one who wanted to go inside Forever21 :D And she wanted to buy this pretty choker for me :> Thank you omma! :D
It’s on 50% off so we paid less than 200 pesos for this! Will wear this to school :)) bongga!
Accompanied my sister to SM North to get her gift then of course went to Etude House… again XD It’s like they have an erika magnet installed at Etude House boutiques :)))
Got a Pure’n Fresh Feminine Wash as an additional freebie and Shinee tin case & memo pad as GWP :D Sister got the new Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit and I bought a new brush! :>
She misses the former All Day Strong BB Cream and wanted to try this! Hope it’s as good-or-better than the former :>

Next game is called Who Am I! :D This game requires skills! XD
Throwing Skills that is! :) I only got 2 out of 3 right! XD A colored ball corresponds to the product! :D
At first I thought you would have to memorize the corresponding colored ball to product! :)) I was memorizing while we were lining up :)) But the ladies would also coach you which ball corresponds to what! :D
Prize is a Precious Mineral All Day Strong BB Cream sample! :D Grand prize is a moistfull set~
Third game which I am not lucky with is another familiar game from Etude!
It’s called the Sweetie’s Spin! :D I am not a very lucky person when it comes to spinning! Did not win anything here XD
You could win a Shinee fan here! :> aigoo~ I wanted one :« :))
Last and the most fun game was the Goal In! Pink Powder Spot!
Uh nee goofing around with the lady! :D >,<
The player would have to shoot 3 cotton buds in the ”ac pink powder spot container” kekeke!!! SUCH A CUTE GAME!!! :>
With Noel! :) Goofing around while they were fixing the ”container” XD I think the players before us were agressive :))
The mimes! :) They did a very good job at distracting us! :D
They entertained us while the others were fixing the ac container :)!
We made friends! And they were not talking at all!!! :) Good job!~ We asked if we could have the Shinee fans that they were using and they gave the fans to us! Thank you!!! :D
Me with uh nee! :) Thank you for accompanying me! :) Thank you Noel for the photo! :)
