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!

 

StyleKorean Haul!

Hello everyone!

I ordered some stuff from StyleKorean’s website for the first time not too long ago, and so I thought I’d share what I ordered with you!

First of all, StyleKorean’s website was pretty easy to use and the prices I found to all be very reasonable. The only thing that was not as great was the shipping price, but honestly it wasn’t too bad, considering that they are shipping these products all the way from Korea. However, if you live in the US, currently they are doing free shipping with orders over $70, which is awesome! And everything was packaged very nicely and securely, so I know I will order from them again in the future.

Onto the haul!

The first thing I got was these adorable Tony Moly X Pokemon Sheet Masks!! I had been wanting to try them and I was so glad that they had them in stock, since everywhere else I looked only had the rest of the make up or skincare from this collection.

I can’t wait to try these!

Next I got two items from Innisfree’s Green Tea line.

I got another Green Tea Seed Serum, which I love since I ran out, and I decided to also try the Green Tea Moisture Skin (Toner, I got the one for dry skin). I picked this up because Clinique recently discontinued the toner I usually use, so I wanted to find a suitable replacement. I love the serum, so I figured the toner would be a safe choice.

Since I mentioned my toner I currently use got discontinued, I also decided to pick up the Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect First Serum 2X Essential (weird name, haha).

I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m very impressed with the packaging! It comes in a glass bottle and with a bunch of cotton pads, which is why it’s more of a toner than a serum.

The last item I got is actually another repurchase!

I got the Memebox I’m Eyebrow Pencil in 04 Light Brown, which is my favorite eyebrow pencil I’ve used so far. I bought it from StyleKorean’s website however, because Memebox USA didn’t have it on their website anymore. 🙁 But I’m super happy that I was able to get it again! It really is my favorite because of the shape and color make it really easy to use.

So that’s it for my first haul from StyleKorean! Have you ever bought anything from their website? 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!

Sephora Haul!

Hello everyone!

Today I’m going to share with you some of the things I bought from Sephora quite a while back. I debated whether or not to post about it but since I had already taken the photos I figured it was worth talking about!

The reason I made this order was because there was a great sample bag as a gift with purchase. I had some things I was already planning on buying at some point, so this sample bag made the decision for me, haha.

So the first two items I bought were two more Chosungah22 lip tints! I mentioned several times how much I love the pink one (Chiffon), but I had been wanting to try two other shades, Cashmere, which is red, and Velvet, which is burgundy.

I already love these and the darker colors are perfect for fall!

The next item I bought was actually an impulse buy, since I saw that it was on sale. It’s the Ciate London X Olivia Polermo The Smouldering Eye Palette. It has 9 different shadows and they are definitely on the darker, smokier side, as the name implies.

It’s a bit different than what I usually go for, but I’ve used some of the shades already and the texture is just amazing! I was so impressed by the formula of these that I may consider trying more of Ciate’s shadows in the future.

Since It was an online order, I also picked 3 samples to go with my purchase!

I got sachets of one of Lancome’s toners, a Josie Maran moisturizer, and a sample of Givenchy Le Rouge lipstick.

I also spent 100 of my points to get a small tube of Dr. Jart+’s Ceramidin cream, which I’ve heard really good things about.

I haven’t used it yet though!

And last but not least, here are the contents of the sample bag!

My particular bag came with:

Dr. Brandt’s Microdermabrasion age defying exfoliator, The Estee Edit’s lipstick samples, a mini size of Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara, Atelier Cologne in Mandarine Glaciale, sachets of Fresh’s Soy Face Cleanser, Rose Face Mask, and Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream, a small sized tub of Belif’s The True Cream- Aqua Bomb, Origin’s VitaZing moisturizer, and a tiny Beauty Blendercleanser Solid.

I have to say, I was most excited for the Belif cream and the beauty blendercleanser! But it will also be nice to try some of Fresh’s skincare too, since I’ve only ever tried their lipbalms.

So that’s it for this Sephora Haul guys! What have you been buying lately? Let me know in the comments!

Things I’ve Bought Lately Part 2

Hello everyone!

This is part two of my blog posts showing what I’ve been buying lately. This post will focus on all the smaller things I’ve bought over time, rather than all at once like in Part 1.

I had a coupon for Wet & Wild products ones day, so I finally decided to try one of their famous Color Icon Palettes.

WWCI 1WWCI 2

This is in the shade selection “Walking on Eggshells,” and I have to say, the formula of these shadows is really good! Especially because they’re super affordable even without coupons.

The next things I bought were some new sunscreens to try!

Parasola and Shiseido UV

I bought the Naris Up Parasola Essence in UV Cut Gel and the Shiseido Q10 BG Mineral Water UV Essence. I’ve already talked about one of them in my June favorites, and I’ve since tried the other as well. I like both quite a lot!

The last few things I bought were two items from NYX!

NYX 1

I had lost my eyeshadow primer at my boyfriend’s house somehow, and I really needed one because my eyelids get super oily and eyeshadow creases very easily. Since I didn’t want to pay for a new tube of the Urban Decay primer that I lost just yet (I’m hoping he’ll find it soon, it was practically brand new!), I decided to try the NXY Proof It! Waterproof Eyeshadow Primer. It’s actually quite good!

NYX 2

I also picked up a Soft Matte Lip Cream in the Shade Prague, which I’ve had my eye on since these lip creams were released! This shade is so beautiful and perfect for fall!

NYX 3

So that’s all the stuff I’ve picked up lately! I bought quite a bit, lol. What have you been buying lately? Let me know in the comments!

 

Things I’ve Hauled Lately Part 1

Hello everyone!

Today I’m going to share with you some of things I’ve bought over the past few months, since it’s been a long time since I’ve posted any hauls (or anything really, lol). A large amount of this haul is skincare, especially sheet masks! I love sheet masks and I was able to go to shops with brands I’ve never tried before, so…I bought a lot, haha. It’s so much stuff that I had to split it into two posts!

Onto the hauls!

Jolse Cosmetics Haul

Hey everyone!

Today I’m going to share what I bought from Jolse Cosmetics. I heard about this website through YouTube quite a while ago, but I hadn’t bought anything until recently.

I’m pretty happy with my experience ordering from them as there weren’t any issues or anything. I’ll probably use them in the future for other orders too!

Jolse Haul 1

Now onto the haul!

Huge Japanese Magazine Haul!

Hello everyone!

Today I’m going to share with you the huuuuuge Japanese magazine haul I did over the past month and a half. I didn’t buy all of these at the exact same time, but since it was all close together I decided to show you guys!

The first round of magazines I purchased were from Amazon Japan, and it was the first time I had ever bought anything from it before. These particular issues were fulfilled by Amazon, so they shipped very quickly, which made me happy, haha.

Amazon Japan Box 1

I was also really impressed with the packaging! They seal the magazines in plastic onto a piece of cardboard, which is then put into the box so that they don’t move around and get bent during shipping!

Amazon Japan box 3

Like this!

J-Magazines round 1

I got: Ray Nov. 2015, Non-no Jan. 2016, and Non-no Dec. 2015

The next round of magazines I purchased at Kinokuniya and Book Off! I kiiiinda maybe went overboard and bought 5 at one time, but I say it’s ok cause two were only $1! So cheap! But that’s cause they’re really old, but they were issues that I was missing in my collection, so I was really happy to see them there.

J-magazines round 2: Book Off

From Book Off I got: Non-no Oct. 2014, Ray May 2014 (Both for a dollar!)

 

J-magazines round 2: Kinokuniya

From Kinokuniya I got: Ray, Ray Feb. 2016, More Feb 2016

Tights from More

This issue of More came with a pair of grey tights from 17°C!

After using Amazon Japan successfully the first time, I got a little magazine-crazy and decided to buy some older issues from late 2015 (cause I had missed their release before) from a third-party seller that offered international shipping! The shipping was kinda expensive, but since several of the magazines were only 1 yen, I figured it was ok, haha.

J-magazines round 3

I got: Non-no Sept. 2015, Oct. 2015, Nov. 2015

Can you tell that Non-no and Ray are my favorite? Hahaha!

More recently I also bought 2 more that were fulfilled by Amazon.

J-magazines round 4

I got: Ray Jan. 2016 and Non-no Mar. 2016

So that’s it for my magazine haul! Can you tell that I might have a magazine addiction? Hahaha. I know this is quite excessive, but I collect these magazines and display them, so that’s why I buy so many. And although I bought so much recently, I know I will probably buy more within the next few months.

Do you guys read Japanese magazines or collect other stuff? Let me know in the comments!

Sephora Fall 2015 VIB Haul

Hey guys!

I know this is a little late, but I wanted to show you guys the stuff I picked up during the Sephora VIB sale this year!

Sephora VIB Haul F15

I didn’t go too overboard (in my opinion), but I did buy some things I’ve had my eye on for a long time.

Origins Modern Friction

So the first thing I got is a tube of the Origins Modern Friction exfoliant. I had a small sample tube that I used up before and loved, but since it’s so expensive I decided to wait for the sale. So glad to have this back in my life, hahaha.

Tony Moly Coconut Sheet Mask

The next thing I got is also another skincare item, and it’s a two pack of the Tony Moly Coconut Face Mask Sheet. Since my skin is super dry, I love trying new hydrating sheet masks, so I decided to pick these up! And because it was on sale it was pretty close to the price of these masks online. Yay!

MUFE Artist Palette 1MUFE Artist Palette 2MUFE Artist Palette 3

The next product I got is the Make Up For Ever Artist Palette in number 1. This is something I’ve had my eye on since it was released, so I decided to splurge on it during the sale! I’ve been loving this palette since I got it, so I’m super happy that I bought it!

Chosungah 22 Dual Tint & Gloss Chiffon 1Chosungah 22 Dual Tint & Gloss Chiffon 2

The last thing I bought was the Chosungah 22 Dual Lip Tint & Gloss in Chiffon, which is a beautiful hot pink color! I first heard about this from Jen’s channel (Meejmuse) on YouTube and when I heard her rave about it I knew I wanted to try it! So I decided to wait for the sale to try it out. I’ve used it quite often already, so it’s another thing I’m super happy I purchased!

So that’s it for my haul guys! I did buy something for my mom at the same time, but since that’s a gift I didn’t want to show it on here, haha.

Did you guys buy anything during the sale? If so, what was it? Let me know in the comments!

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.

IMG_1646

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:

IMG_1647

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!

IMG_1654

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…)

IMG_1657

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!

IMG_1651IMG_1652IMG_1653

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.

IMG_1655IMG_1667IMG_1668

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!

IMG_1658IMG_1659

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:

IMG_1648

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

IMG_1649IMG_1650

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!

IMG_1661IMG_1662

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!

IMG_1665IMG_1666

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!

IMG_1660

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!

IMG_1663IMG_1664

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.

IMG_1656

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!
