Dear Dahlia is a makeup brand from Korea, but it projects a glamorous image rather than the cutesy image that other Korean makeup brands project.
It’s also cruelty-free, clean beauty, and vegan.
Dear Dahlia Paradise Dual Palette in Lady Oxford
I discovered Dear Dahlia through Facebook and its targeted ads. I was enchanted by its faux-marble packaging and ordered its Paradise Dual Palette in Lady Oxford. Dear Dahlia mailed my package from Seoul and I had to sign for the package at the Post Office. The lady at the counter looked at my package quizzically. Maybe she was from Korea. I told her it was makeup.
As you can see from the picture above, the Paradise Dual Palette has a matte eyeshadow duo on one side and a creme blush/lip tint on the other. The eyeshadow duo could also be used to fill in the eyebrows. In other words, a complete look from a tiny compact.
The Paradise Dual Palette (other color options are available) costs $ 32.00 USD. You may order Dear Dahlia makeup through its website https://en.deardahlia.com/.

eCosway has closed, and I changed the marker to red.
There are still Shiseido and AMORE counters inside Super H in Fairfax. Not only does AMORE carry AMOREPACIFIC brands, but it also carries Missha. The women at the counter told me that the most popular items were sheet masks and BB cream – no surprise there. Here is my recent haul from Amore:
Missha Stick Eye shadow in Maple Honey
Missha Deep Sea Water Firming Eye Patch
Missha Speedy Solution Clearing Gel Eye Patch
Aritaum The Professional 100% Jelly Cleansing Puff, actually a konjac sponge infused cleansing jelly. It dries out quickly and is prone to mold.
Mamonde Double Effect Ampoule Mask – Violet Flower Ultra Moisturizing, a two-step product consisting of an ampoule (whatever that is) and a sheet mask.
Because I had been to Super H recently, I changed the marker to green. I turned the other markers to gray, as I can’t vouch for them.
Aritaum describes itself as “the one stop solution for all your beauty needs.” It is a chain of K-#beauty stores whose parent company is AMOREPACIFIC. Some Aritaum stores operate under the AMORE name. Aritaum/AMORE locations are identified by blue diamonds.
According to cosmeticsdesign.com, there are 70 Aritaum stores in the US and Canada, with more store openings planned for this year.
