Update and Travel Haul!

Hello everyone!

Sorry I’ve been MIA recently! I was actually on vacation, so I couldn’t update this blog very easily. Internet was kind of spotty, haha. But I’m back now! I went to Japan and then Thailand with a layover in Korea; and I bought a lot of stuff! However, it’ll be only the beauty stuff as most of what I bought was souvenirs for my family.


I’m splitting this into two groups, things I bought in Japan, and things I bought during our layover in South Korea on the trip back home!

Stuff I bought in Japan:


So the first thing I went looking for was the Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Mousse sunscreen. I love it to death and really wanted to stock up on it. However, I couldn’t find it anywhere! I checked so many stores and it was always sold out. There was a little empty space where the product should be. 🙁 So instead, I bought this!


This is the Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence sunscreen. They both have the same SPF rating, so I thought I’d give this a shot. (I’m really hoping the other one isn’t going to be discontinued…)


The next thing I bought were some My Beauty Diary Sheet masks. This is just a small pack of two in the Black Pearl type. I’ve been wanting to try these and this 2 pack was super affordable!


I also bought some makeup while I was in Japan. The first thing I bought was the Kate Tokyo Brown Shade Eyes eyeshadow palette in the shade BR-2. I’ve used it already and I can tell you I love it!! The shades work really well together and I love that one shadow is matte! I might want to pick up more of these, haha.


The last two makeup items I bought were from Canmake, a brand I’ve been wanting to try for some time now. I got the Glow Fleur Highlighter in the shade #01, Planet Light. Isn’t the design adorable?! Can’t wait to use it!


The other thing I got from Canmake is the Your Lip Only Gloss in the shade #01, which doesn’t have sparkles like #02. This is supposed to be a dupe for the Givenchy Revelateur lip gloss, which both go from clear to a pretty shade of pink on your lips! I’m excited to try this out!

Stuff I bought in Korea:


First of all, I bought a lot of Etude House products, haha.


I bought the Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher in the shade #06, Grapefruit Jelly. Isn’t this so cute! I have been wanting to buy this ever since I saw Pony use it because it looked like the perfect every day blush, so I’m excited to start using it!


I also bought another Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint in the shade PK002. I already own the shade OR201 (a nice peachy shade) and I love it, so I decided to pick up another color!


Next I bought the Etude House Play 101 pencil in the shade #5, which is a pretty champagne glitter pencil. I thought this would be great for highlighting the inner corners of my eyes, and so far I’m really liking it!


The last thing I bought from Etude House was this pack of I Need You Masks in the Royal Jelly type. I’ve been wanting to try the face masks from them for quite a while now, and so I thought I’d give these a shot!


And the very last thing I bought in Korea is the Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum. I’ve heard about this serum a ton, so I thought I’d give it a try! People always say such great stuff about it, so I’m really excited to use it. Gotta use up some other stuff first before I open this though, haha.


Since I bought so much, I also got some free samples! All of them were from Etude House. I got the I Need You Mask in the Mugwort type, a sachet of the Precious Mineral BB Cream in the Perfect Fit type and two of the Precious Mineral BB Cream in the Blooming Fit type (both in the shade W13).

That’s it for my haul guys! I kinda went a little nuts, haha. Is there anything I bought that you guys want to try or have tried before? Let me know in the comments!
