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!

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!

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!

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!

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.

Washington Park Japanese Garden

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!

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!
