Style Korean Haul 2: Lovely in Spring Beauty Box “Unboxing”

Hello everyone!

Today I’m going to share with you my second haul from Style Korean. I saw that they were doing some pre-made beauty boxes (similar to what Memebox does) and it had a few items I’ve been dying to try, so I decided to make another order!

I got the “Lovely in Spring” Box and a few other things. Now to the “unboxing!” It didn’t come in a separate box from the rest of my purchases, but everything was packaged together very well.

So the box came with 6 different items:

First is one of the items I had already wanted to purchase, and it’s the Labiotte’s Chateau Labiotte Wine Eyeshadow Palette in #02 Sweet Wine.

So far I really love it! It’s got really beautiful shades and the packaging is nice and lightweight.

Next is the COSRX Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask. I’m really excited to try this because I really love sheet masks with honey, so I’m hoping I’ll like this too!

The next product is another one I’ve been wanting to try. It’s Heimish’s All Clean Balm, which is a solid balm cleanser.

I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m really excited to!

The last skincare item is a set of 10 Mediheal N.W.F. Aquaring Ampoule Masks. I love sheet masks, so I was really excited that this was included in the box! Can’t wait to try these too!

The next item is a lip product from the brand Chica Y Chico. It’s their Mat Fix Matte Lip in 001 Mata Hari, a really pretty red shade. I haven’t tried it yet, but the curved applicator makes it look like it’ll be easy to apply!

And the last item from the box was something I was very interested in trying! It’s the Aprilskin Black Magic Snow Cushion 2.0 in the shade #21 Light Beige.

After trying the pikachu one from Tony Moly, I really wanted to try other cushion foundations! So I am anxious to try this one out too!

Items I bought outside of the box:

I got two other items during this order, the first being some replacement rubycell air puffs because my dog had gotten ahold of my other ones somehow and chewed them to bits, haha. I decided to go with these Heimish ones since they came in a pack of 5, which is more convenient for me.

They last item I purchased was Etude House’s Play 101 Blending Pencil in #7, which is a pretty dusty pink color. This was a bit of an impulse buy, but I don’t regret it! It’s such a pretty color!

And the last item that was in my order (shown in the full photo at the top of the post) was a free sample of Benton’s Snail Bee High Content Skin (Toner), which I have yet to try.

So that’s it for my haul guys! Have yo ordered from Style Korean before? Let me know in the comments!

 

The Face Shop Haul!

Hello everyone!

Today I’m going to share with you some things I bought at The Face Shop! Recently I went to a concert in a city about 1 hour away from where I live, so my sister and I wanted to find something to do before it was time for the concert. There was a mall nearby, so I looked it up and lo and behold, they actually had The Face Shop!

I was really excited, since I’ve never seen one of their stores in person, so we definitely had to go! And of course, I managed to buy a lot of things. Mostly sheet masks, haha.

I got 20 sheet masks while I was there, since they had a buy 10 get 10 free sale and I always love using sheet masks.

I got some in: White Tea, Green Tea, Peony, Lily, and Lotus

And a lot more in: Honey, Cucumber, Aloe, Rice, Avocado, Acai Berry, Kelp, Pomegranate, and Blueberry.

I also bought the Ink Graffiti Liquid Liner in number 02 Full Brown.

I have been looking for a new liquid liner and the shop staff said that they really enjoyed using it themselves, so I decided to give it a try. And so far, I really love it! The color is not too harsh like a black liquid liner usually is, which makes it easier for me to wear it on a daily basis.

And because I spent so much money, I got some free samples!

They gave me another Green Tea sheet mask and some skincare items: The Therapy Oil Blending Formula Cream and the Chia Seed Fresh Cleansing Foam.

So that’s all that I got at The Face Shop! Have you guys tried anything from them? Let me know in the comments!

Pokemon X Tony Moly Haul!

Hello everyone!

Recently, Tony Moly collaborated with Pokemon to create a makeup and skincare collection! And because I love Pokemon so much, I couldn’t help but want to purchase a lot of items, haha.

But the first item I bought wasn’t from this collection. I bought Etude House’s Beauty Shot Face Blur cause I’ve been dying to try it!

So I figured I’d pick it up since I was already buying other things, haha.

But anyways, onto the Tony Moly Haul!

The first thing I was interested in buying was this adorable Pikachu Eyeshadow Palette!

I love that Pikachu is on the outside, and the colors are nice, neutral browns that are great for everyday. I’ve been using it quite a bit since I got it, and the eyeshadows are really good quality! There very pigmented and smooth! This collection also has a Jigglypuff version with rosy brown shades, and now I’m super tempted to buy that one too, lol.

The next item I bought was this Pikachu Mini Cover Cushion in #01 Skin Beige.

This is actually my first cushion foundation, and so I thought it was great that it’s a smaller size, just in case I don’t wear it often (as I don’t always wear base makeup). I still haven’t tried this yet, but I’m planning on trying it this weekend! So excited!

Since many reviews of the cushion mentioned that it was really dewy, I figured I’d might as well get the adorable Purin (Jigglypuff) Peach Pact in #01 Downy Vanilla.

I love how Jigglypuff is imprinted on the powder! This is another product I haven’t tried yet, so I can’t really say if I like it yet, but I can’t wait to try it too!

I also bought a few things from their skincare line. The first thing I got was this Pikachu Moisture Foam Cleanser.

Again, I haven’t tried this yet because I just opened another cleanser, but I couldn’t resist the Pikachu packaging!! So adorable!

The last thing I bought for myself was the Isanghesshi (Bulbasaur) Hand Cream. I didn’t take any close up photos of this because I also bought another cream for my sister for her Christmas stocking, so if I like it I’ll do a review post after I try it!

And the last thing I received was a bunch of Tony Moly samples! I got 3 different hand creams/hand milks to try and then this mysterious men’s skincare product that I don’t really know what it’s for, haha. Maybe it’s like a serum/toner?

But anyways, that’s it for my haul! Have you bought anything from this collection? Let me know in the comments!

July- October 2016 Favorites

Hello everyone!

Today I’m going to share with you my favorites for July all the way up until October. I decided to combine them because I didn’t have very many beauty favorites for each month to have it’s own post, lol.

Favs 8-10 2016

Beauty Favorites:

My first favorite is the Innisfree Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil!

Faves 8-10 2016 2

Lately I’ve been wearing more face makeup (BB cream, foundation, etc.) so I’ve been double cleansing with this more often lately. This cleansing oil is very gentle on my sensitive skin, even though it’s highly fragranced. It smells like the apple Life Saver gummi candies, which I actually really love, haha.

My next favorite is the Bumble and Bumble Pret-a-Powder.

Faves 8-10 2016 3

This is a dry shampoo thats in a powder from, rather than an aerosol spray can. I really love the Living Proof dry shampoo, but I just run out of it too quickly and since it’s pretty expensive, I wanted to try something else. I also had a trip coming up, so I wanted something that I wouldn’t have to worry about taking on the plane, so I picked this! I still prefer the Living Proof one a little bit more, but this one works really well and will last me forever, so I’m sticking with it, haha.

Another product I’ve been loving lately is the NYX Proof It! Waterproof Eye Primer!

Faves 8-10 2016 4

I bought this fairly recently when I lost my other primer, and it does a great job of keeping my eyeshadow in place like the Urban Decay one, but for only $6 dollars! I have very oily eyelids,  so if your eyes are similar then I really recommend giving this a try. The only thing I will say though is that eyeshadow is harder to blend out on top of this and it’s a bit more difficult to remove compared to other ones I’ve tried. Using a cleansing oil takes it off super easily though so no worries!

My last beauty favorite is the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette! I took this with me when I was in Maine and it was perfect for any occasion.

Faves 8-10 2016 5

I’ve featured this in my favorites before and it truly is an awesome eyeshadow palette. The eyeshadows are fantastic quality and the shades are extremely versatile. My favorite shade is Marzipan, which is a pretty rose gold color! I’ve already been making a small dent in it, haha.

Non-Beauty Favorites:

One of my first non-beauty favorites was the GOT7 Concert I went to in July! It was so awesome to be able to go to their concert, since they are one of my favorite Kpop groups!

GOT7 Concert 1

It was so amazing and I really hope to be able to go again someday! I was also lucky enough to be able to take a photo with them too!

GOT7 Concert 2

My photos aren’t the best, but it really was so much fun and I feel really lucky to be able to see one of my favorite groups perform live and meet them after!

My next favorite was another awesome trip to Maine! I went to Maine to visit my boyfriend before he moved back home, since I hadn’t seen him in person for around 6 months prior to the trip.

We went to Acadia National Park, where I took some photos that I’ll share with you today!

So that’s it for my favorites the past few months guys! What have you been loving? Let me know in the comments!

March 2016 Favorites

Hello everyone!

Today I’m going to share with you my March favorites! I’ve definitely been super busy with school, so unfortunately I didn’t blog much this month. Or the past few months, really. But I do have a few favorites I’d like to share with you!

March 2016 Favs

Beauty Favorites:

My first beauty favorite is this foaming cleanser I bought when I was at Marukai, which is a Japanese supermarket. I’m not really sure if there is a brand name, because even the super market just called it Whip Premium, haha. It was on special for only $5!

Whip Premium

This is the first foaming cleanser (and first Japanese cleanser) I’ve tried, and I really love the texture! It lathers up really really well and I feel like it does a great job at getting all of the dirt from my face after a long day. It also works well with my sensitive skin, which is another huge plus!

My next beauty favorite this past month has been the Urban Decay Naked Palette!

UD Naked 1

I found myself gravitating towards this palette all month, and in particular to the shades Sin and Naked. I use Sin all over the lid, with Naked in the crease, and they’re perfect for everyday makeup looks! Like the other Urban Decay shadows I have, this palette’s shadows are high quality and highly pigmented. They’re super smooth and easy to blend too!

My last beauty favorite for this month is the Canmake Your Lip Only Gloss in 01.

Canmake gloss

I bought this lipgloss when I went to Japan last year, and lately I’ve really enjoyed using it over various lip tints! It’s a clear gloss that turns pink on the lips, which looks good over my pink lip tints. The texture of this gloss is also really nice, as it’s not sticky and feels slightly moisturizing through the wear as well.

Non-Beauty Favorites:

My non-beauty favorite for this month is a new place that I visited: Portland, Oregon!

There were so many different things that I loved about this city! It has awesome public transportation, great food, and lots of parks to take pictures in.

One of the things I really loved was Washington Park and the Japanese Garden nearby! Both were so beautiful and very peaceful.

Left to Right: Washington Park, Portland Japanese Garden

The cherry trees were also blooming and it was so pretty! I had never seen cherry blossoms in person before as they don’t grow where I live, so I was really happy that I got to experience that.

Cherry Blossoms- Portland

Another standout was the food! My sister and I ate so much, haha. We tried Voodoo Donuts as well, which was awesome! I love sweets, haha.

Voodoo Donuts

Powell’s Books was also amazing! I didn’t take pictures inside because I was just so amazed at how large the store was, but I did get a cute t-shirt!

So that’s it for my favorites this month! What have you guys been loving? Let me know in the comments!

VELLA Fresh Creamy Soap Review

Hello!

Today I’m going to talk to you about the VELLA Fresh Creamy Soap, which came in the Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize! Memebox and was one of my February favorites!

This soap is a cream cleanser that comes in a tub form (100 mL). A spatula is also included to keep things hygienic! It’s not available on Memebox’s website, but I did see it for sale on Amazon from the seller seoulglamour here.

IMG_1097IMG_1098

First of all, I really love the details on the packaging! The small spatula is really thoughtful and I will definitely keep this when I run out of the cleanser to use with other products! The lid has a really adorable print around the rim, along with the cute style of the labels.

IMG_1100image (1)

(That vine print is so cute!! I wish it was easier to take a picture of!) 

This face wash is very creamy and very gentle and is great for sensitive skin. This cleanser also smells really good. It’s kind of citrusy and fresh! I love using it at night and I haven’t had any issues with my skin feeling extra dry after. Since I have really sensitive skin, this has been really awesome for me because I haven’t gotten any pimples or red spots, which is great!! Many cleansers cause me to get small spots all over my face, so I’m always really happy when I find one that works.

The Verdict: I really love this. It has quickly become a favorite of mine! I wish it was more widely available, though.

Have any of you tried this? Did it work for you? Let me know in the comments!!
