Holika Holika x Gudetama Lazy & Joy Collection

I mean, how cute is this..?! I love makeup with pretty packaging but animation or overly cutesy stuff is not my thing at all. Still, these gifted cuties made me squeal. I believe they are from the season 2 (called "Lazy & Joy") of Holika Holika x Gudetama collaboration which seems ongoing due to the popularity. I can clearly see why. It's not just the adorable exteriors. What's inside is pretty awesome, too.



Holika Holika is one of those "roadshop brands" in Korea and its price range is something equivalent to the U.S. drugstore makeup. Would you look at the details in the packagings, though! I do have an issue with the lipstick, but the eyeshadow quad and the blush compact both come in sturdy and functional cases. (And that's not even the point here.)


Holika Holika Lazy & Joy Cupcake Eyeshadow (Gudetama Edition) 01 Red Velvet 



This particular quad was marketed as an affordable dupe of Chanel Candeur et expérience probably because of the reddish matte color. As you see, it is no dupe containing quite a few different shades not to mention at least two colors are shimmery where the Chanel consists of all mattes. Nonetheless, it is a beautiful palette and super easy to wear. Everything applies and blends like a dream. I am so impressed that the matte shades feel creamy and have virtually no fallout.

(No word. Let's just oogle...)


It is a cushiony-textured silicon blush and easily applies with the enclosed puff (again, so cute!),  which is the same thing you'd find in those cushion compacts.


Holika Holika Lazy & Easy Melting Lip Button RD01 Berry Marmalade



Cute as a button, literally. It is a very wet gloss stick of a sort and dispenses a little by little if you click the button on the other end. There is a reason why this is covered with the cute Gudetama cap, though. Once the bullet is out, it doesn't retract. The bullet is very soft and squishy that it smears inside of the cap if you're not careful. Having said all that, I'm fine with it because this is the most adorable lippie that I've ever owned and the color is pretty. 

The lip color looks quite warm but it actually appears rather cool on me. It is glossy and hydrating yet relatively long lasting due to the staining color. The blush is a light peach with white base. I'm surprised to see the color is flattering on me. However, it is very sheer and disappears quickly.


Now, I put together a face using all three. I hadn't worn reddish eye makeup for so long (maybe not ever), so this was a refreshing challenge and I even liked the result. Interestingly, though, the look wasn't received very well by my SO. He thinks I look a bit sickly when I wear the eyeshadow quad. Too bad that I like it and all my female colleagues think it is a pretty color combo. Plus I wear tons of other stuff he likes, so (deal with it, man)



Have you tried any of the Holika Holika x Gudetama collaborations? What are your thoughts on the warm/reddish eye makeup trend?

  1. The Gudetama has always cracked me up so I thought this was a fun collab but I've generally moved past my attraction to cutesy packaging so I didn't pick anything up. That lippie is totes adorbs and you totally made it all work in the look you put together :) Haha my husband is the same about certain things I like to wear and I usually don't concede if I really like it either ;p Happy long weekend Lena!

    1. I agree - the Gudetama is cute and Funny! I love that the blush case is so convenient to use. The blush itself reminds me of those Maybelline cushy blush but the details it comes with! When it comes to reddish/orangey eye makeup, I always think of Fan BingBing as she looks fabulous wearing these colors plus deep berry lip color. I was surprised to hear that he wasn't a big fan. He must have really disliked it, though. He usually doesn't say anything. LOL

  2. I LOVE THE WARM RED EYE SHADOW TREND and I think it looks great on you! I searched for this eye palette online just now, but it's not available here. I wonder if it's all sold out? I have a feeling I'll be spending one whole day just looking at beauty stuff when I'm in Korea in October. I need to write down things I CANNOT buy because I have a feeling I'd go overboard. LOL!

    1. Haha, thank you, Lily! <3 I don't think they're sold out - I see tons available on eBay still. You should be able to receive them fairly quickly because they usually ship out from Korea. On the other hand, I am not sure if you'd find the same thing in October, although there should be new & different Gudetama stuff! ;D

  3. I love (looking at) all the warm matte red palettes around. Esprique had a limited eyeshadow single from last holiday, I am bummed that the seller told me it was out of stock after I placed the order (I think I can only wear it in a light clear formula)...

    I am happy to say that I am immuned to most of those collaborations (but I still fall for Hello Kitty once in a while). A lot of time when I look at these fun collab or new collections from colourpop, my first reaction is always "I am too old for this shit."

    1. Ooh, light clear formula would do the trick. Actually, I think the top right shade is something like that. Strangely, I never liked Hello Kitty stuff (saved tons of money, so I'm thankful. LOL). Anna Sui or Paul & Joe is the farthest I'd go for "pretty packaging", but I do love having some Gudetama in my collection and those PeriPera lip tints. ;)

  4. I'm not a massive fan of rust hues around eyes. For me it always reminds me of someone under the weather ahaha. I'm so in love with this packaging. Even if the products inside happened to be below par, I'd still buy it for the packaging alone!

    1. LOL. That's exactly what my SO said about this particular color combo. If you like the packaging, do check out the other color called Tiramisu, which is a super wearable/pretty neutral brown combo! :)
