The Korean beauty haul

hello008

As you may know something about me, it’s that I love Korean products and cute packaging. The standards for a product to me becomes higher when the packaging is so cute. Today I’m going to show you some of the products I got when I was in NYC and some online. I tried all these products, they smell great and feel amazing. Lets get into the haul

I love my skin care items, and so all I have is skin care lol.

These 2 hand/body creams are so divine, they smell amazing and the cream gets absorbed pretty fast. I got these 2 from the body shop, they come in three, but I gave one away to my sister.

How cute is this? I’m doing it again getting obsessed with the packaging. This hand cream is amazing, a little goes along way, it smells like banana’s literally, and the it keeps your hands soft. I love applying it on, it’s not sticky it’s very air like feeling. This is from Tony Moly and its called Banana Hand Milk. you can get it on Amazing Tony Moly Magic Food Banana Hand Milk

This is a lipbalm and I got this as a free gift, isn’t that amazing? again the packing is awesome, the product however not a huge fan. This is in the berry flavour, and it smells divine. This is also from Tony Moly and its called Kiss Kiss Lip Essence Balm

My sunscreen was almost done, so I decided to try a korean brand for sun screen. I understand how Koreans are with their sun block, it might be way to over board but it works and they have an amazing skin. I tried it on, its very oily, like a typical sunscreen, but it gets absorbed fast and the smell of it is a little faint to what usual sunscreen smells like. The one I have is spf 35, but I think I will get the spf50 in the summer. Totally recommend this.

 

Lastly, my Nature Republic Soothing & Moisture ALOE VERA 92% GEL. This stuff is amazing, again it smells amazing, there is a lot of it and it dries super quick. its great for everything in your body. It is free from paraben, mineral oil and artificial colors and meant to be a moisturizer for various parts of the body like the face, the arms, the legs or even the hair and nails. you can find this also on amazon Here

To conclude, I hope you enjoyed looking at my Korean obsession with skin care. Let me know if you have an obsession with any certain products, or brand that you just cant stop yourself from buying. Love to hear from you guys, love you and talk to you soon ❤

Shopping Trip

 
What I bought at the drugstore this time 
Well since NYX became one of my favorite products I couldn’t resist on not buying these few items from them. I also picked up a mascara from Rimmel, I wanted to see if this mascara is as good as L’oreal since you know I want to stop purchasing L’oreal because they torture animals
I’m not really going to give my opinion too much on these items since I just purchased them, but I will see what I liked when I tried them out.
The first product I picked out was XTREME LIP CREAM in the color DOLLY GIRL. I really like this product so far, the weird thing about this its that its so creamy and feels so nice on the lips.The one thing I kinda hate is the stickiness when you put it on.
The second ones are the 2 Blushes ^__^ 
I got the POWDER BLUSH in the color Pinky and Mauve
These blushes are so nice on my cheeks I really Like the colors they give. its almost matte with tiny tiny sparkles.
 
The last thing I got was the RIMMEL Extra WOW Lash Mascara. 
I put this on and later on the day it was shedding 😦 
I felt like I had something in the eye the whole day, I will keep trying it till I decide if I hate it or Love it. 
in terms on the lashes I think it made them have some volume but not like my L’oreal Mascara. The search is back on.

I love E.l.f’s brushes becasue not only they are cheap but they have amazing quality, super soft,and there is so many of them to chose from. The amazing thing about elf is that you can wait on your order until they do these coffee breaks or 50% of all items deal on your email and you can pretty much order the whole website lol. back to the brushes… for all these brushes this is what the description says about them
antibacterial, synthetic haired Taklon brush is softer and more absorbent and can be used with wet or dry products.
I have tried these brushes and I really love the feel of them, and for the price I’m so amazed at the quality, and they do give me that airbrushed look. instead of wasting $30 on one brush I got one brush for $3 or on the sale day for $1.50. I’m not a professional makeup artist but I do love to appling makeup for my amausment and these brushes save me money and give me the look I want. I bought other kinds from lush but I will review them later.

Okay these pallettes have such pretty colors, I didnt stick to one tone I picked dark/mate, shimmer and summer colors, and in between kinda colors for summer spring as well. I can tell you right now that these colors I can use them for everyday when I go to work or go with out. I will do swatchs for these but There is so many colors I got lazy 😦 but I promise you I will. Click on the pictures for a bigger size. The pigmentation on these palettes are so great. Let me know If you want me to do a makeup tutorial using these pallettes.
3. Brush Shampoo
e.l.f. Studio Brush Shampoo
The claim of this shampoo is
An anti-bacterial brush cleanser for thorough cleaning in-between makeup applications. Disinfects brushes to provide a fresh and clean application every time. Washes away traces of dirt, makeup, oil and debris from your brush while conditioning the hair to provide a clean and soft application for every use.
I like this brush Shampoo, and for the price again you can’t beat it! it definitely does a great job in getting the makeup out of my brushes. I thought it would smell gross for some reason but it actually has no smell or a funny scent. It washes out very easily and it does what its supposed to do, I cant complain.
4. Maximum Coverage Concealer – Oil Free
It Claims:
Maximum Coverage Concealer provides blendable, wearable, customizable coverage for body and face. The Oil Free formula is perfect for hiding tattoos, birth marks, dark circles, blemishes, scars and more. Highly pigmented for for long-lasting, ultimate coverage and confidence!
I used this once, So I cant really tell you how it is except for my experiance. I liked how it covered my blemishes. I like the testure of it, it’s super creamy and easy to blend. It lasted me almost all day without me noticing it. I will use it more and let you know how it is.
5.  Moisturizing Lipstick
e.l.f. Studio Moisturizing Lipstick
Claims:

The velvety, satin texture glides on lips with vibrant color and luminous shine. Enriched with Shea and Vitamins A, C, & E to nourish and hydrate the lips. The rich, creamy formula seals in moisture for long-lasting wear and comfort.
I love these lipsticks, I alrdy have 3 of the shades, and decided to get an orange one for the summer. I love the mositure it gives, but I dont know about the longlasting description. I feel like it fades after an hr or when I eat something. This color is called Coral Cutie, and the pigmentation of it is just so pretty.
6. Wrinkle Refiner & Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick
e.l.f. Studio Wrinkle Refiner
e.l.f. Essential Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick
The claims of the wrinkle Refiner
Instantly smooth, soften and virtually fill in laugh lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles for a flawless finish. Key ingredients draw in moisture to smooth and plump delicate skin for a rejuvenated and youthful look. The rich blend of Wheat Protein, Horse Chestnut, Caffeine, Edelweiss, Chamomile, Shea, Mango and Vitamins A & E retexturize skin and prevents future damage and premature aging.
I actually liked what this did, but to be honest when I applied foundation on top of it, the results were just not very pretty, and I alrdy have dry areas in my face and this just made it more dry and patchy, but I can use it alone I guess.
Claims of the Jumbo Lip
The Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick is a tinted lip color that glides on like a lipstick but looks like a gloss. With nourishing Jojoba, Soybean and Vitamin E key ingredients, it conditions and moisturizes the lips. The twist-up component and smooth glide formula is easy to use for on-the-go application.
I hate this Lip gloss stick, all it is is glitter with some color. Im not a fan of glitter on lipsticks or lip gloss, when I applied this on I felt like I was in grade 6 or 7 when we used to play around with glittler lipsticks. but I got this for $1 and you get what you pay for with this item lol
Thats all for my E.L.F Haul Review, Leave me a comment and tell me which one you like, and also which one you want me to review.
