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!

 

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!

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!

June 2016 Favorites!

Hey everyone!

I know it’s been a while, but today I’m going to share with you my favorite things from this past month! Let’s get started!

June Favs 2016

Beauty Favorites:

My first favorite is the Etude House Royal Jelly Sheet Mask.

June Favs 2016 2

I bought a pack of these when I had a layover in Korea last year, and I’ve loved them since then! But this month in particular these have been working really well for me, since my skin has been a little more sensitive. It’s super soothing and gentle, and my skin always feels a lot better after using it. I definitely have to get more once I run out of these!

My next favorite is a sunscreen I purchased recently to use on my body. It’s the Naris Up Parasola Essence In UV Cut Gel (SPF 50+/PA++++).

June Favs 2016 3

I was interested in trying a new sunscreen to use on my body on the days when I won’t be in the sun too much, and this sunscreen is totally perfect for that! What I really love about it is the texture; it’s like a milky gel (hence the name) that absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave a sticky film behind, which is one of the things I dislike the most about other sunscreens. It also has a very pleasant scent as well, which is very light and not noticeable after a few minutes.

My last beauty favorite is also a skincare product, and it’s a travel sized version of the Laneige Water Sleeping Pack!

June Favs 2016 4

I’ve heard so many good things about Laneige, so I’ve been wanting to try them for a while. Luckily, my Target had this travel size trial kit, which included this amazing sleeping pack! It smells really good, but doesn’t irritate my skin, which is awesome. But the best thing about this is that my skin truly feels more hydrated after using this! It goes on with a pleasant cooling sensation and dries down eventually, meaning it’s not getting all over my pillow too! I used this when my skin had both a sunburn and was super dry because of the wind, and it felt so amazing and really helped to calm down the redness. I highly recommend it and will definitely buy the full size when I run out!

Non-beauty Favorites:

My first non-beauty favorite for this past month has been these Liz Lisa 3D flower pumps!

June Favs 2016 5

They’re the first pair of shoes I bought from Liz Lisa, and I could not be happier with them! Not only does the L or Large size fit me perfectly, these shoes are also super comfortable and I just want to wear them all the time! So lately on the weekends I find ways to wear these, since I can’t wear them to the lab, haha.

My last favorite for this month is actually a collection of podcasts that are all run by How Stuff Works. I love listening to these podcasts when I’m working in the lab or at the gym! In particular, I love the Stuff You Missed in History Class podcast, which is the one I first started listening to.

But I also listen to many of their other podcasts, such as Stuff Mom Never Told You, Stuff They Don’t Want You to Know, Stuff You Should Know, and Stuff to Blow Your Mind. I really do recommend these if you do a lot of work in a lab or similar environment because they make repetitive work much more fun! I also made sure to include a link to all of these podcasts in case anyone is interested!

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

2015 Favorites!

Hello everyone!

My goodness time has just flown by! I can’t believe it’s already 2016! Anyone make any New Years resolutions? Mine is to blog more often!

Speaking of blogging more often, today I’m going to share with you some of my favorite products for the whole year of 2015. I really tried to limit how much I picked, cause otherwise I would be here all day! A lot of these will be familiar to you guys already, but I feel like it’s worth bringing up why I like them so much, haha.

On to the favorites!

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!

Memebox: Intro to K-Pop Star Makeup Box #So Cute Vol. 3 Unboxing/Haul

Hello everyone!

So I’ve been buying a lot of stuff recently, in particular stuff from Memebox, so I wanted to share some of that with you today! I don’t have everything included in here, as one is actually a christmas gift (for me from my mom) and one I haven’t received in the mail yet, but I’ll show that to you guys when the time comes!

So first of all, I bought two different things from Memebox. I got the Intro to K-Pop Star Makeup Box #So Cute Vol. 3 and one of the XO Memebox I’m Eyeliners.

Onto the Unboxing!

So Cute Memebox 1So Cute Memebox 2

This box came with 6 different items from the XO Memebox line, all to help you “achieve the cute & innocent babyface look that you see all over K-Pop music videos.”

First is the I’m Stick Shadow in #01 Have a Nice Day ($7.50), which is a beautiful glittery peachy-gold shade.

I'm Stick Shadow #01

I’ve tried most of the products in this box already and I have to say that I’m really impressed with this! It works really well as an eyeshadow base and sets quickly, so it doesn’t crease for quite a long time on my oily eyes.

Next is the I’m Cream Shadow in #01 Flash Light ($7.50), which is a glittery pearl shade.

I'm Cream Shadow #01

I have been using this in my inner corners and I’m loving the intense sparkle it gives! It makes me want to try more shades, haha.

The third product is the I’m Pro Mascara in #02 Volume & Curl ($14), and it’s a black shade.

I'm Pro Mascara #02

This is one of the products I haven’t tried yet, as I have a few mascaras open and I don’t want to have too many open at one time. But when I do try it, I’ll let you know how it is!

The next product is the I’m Lip Tint Balm in #CR008 Lovely Coral ($7), which is a very nice coral tinted balm (like it says! Haha).

I'm Lip Tint Balm #CR008

So far I really love this, as it’s more pigmented than I expected. It also smells like the Pony Blossom lipsticks, which is awesome! I love that smell so much, haha.

This box also included the I’m Lip Tint in #PK657 Monaco Nude Pink ($14), and it’s a pretty nude shade.

I'm Lip Tint #PK657

I don’t wear nude shades very often, but I feel like this one is pretty wearable, since its got a pink undertone to it. Very pretty!

The last item in this box is the Memebox Hydrogel Mask ($3).

Memebox Hydrogel Mask

I haven’t used it yet, but I have tried it in the past when it came with another box. It was nice, but it’ll be good to try it again!

This box also came with some free samples from the brand It’s Skin, which I’ve never tried before, so I’m pretty excited to try them out!

So Cute Memebox It's Skin Samples

They sent me a sachet of the Power 10 Formula YE Effector and their cleansing oil.

So the very last item that I bought is the XO Memebox I’m Eyeliner in the shade #05 Jade ($5).

I'm Eyeliner #05

It’s a beautiful deep olive green with golden shimmer, and I’ve been using this quite a bit since I got it! I think it’s perfect for fall and will be great during the holiday season too! It’s so pretty!

So that’s all that I bought for now! I’ll do another post when I get the last item I ordered!

Have you guys tried any of these products? Let me know what you think 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!
