Just a quick post for the day, I wanted to share some cute Korean Lip Tints that I’ve purchased recently. As you may have noticed, I’m a huge lover of Korean Beauty, it’s become pretty popular over the last few years with numerous articles on the Korean 10 step skin care routine and with various Korean beauty brands being stocked at big stores like Sephora and Mecca. Whilst the popularity seems to mostly focus on the huge variety of affordable skin care products, my true love when it comes to Korean beauty is their makeup – particularly their face and lip products.
Just a quick post today for a look a did before this horrid winter settled in. It felt like the last sunny warm day for a long time so I decided to go for a cute summery look for a lolita-fashion event. When I was younger, my face was covered with freckles but over the years they’ve faded which is a shame because it wasn’t until later in life where I really started to love my freckles! There’s been a bit of a trend these days with drawing freckles on which I think is great!
Cushions are all the craze in South Korea right now and the popularity is starting to spread, not only to other countries but now into other products! I’ve been seeing Western brands releasing their own version of Cushions (Lancome, MAC, YSL, L’Oreal – which all seem to be big fails sadly) but South Korean brands have been applying the cushion madness to blushes, primers and even eyeliners!
I’m somewhat caught up in the craze as I love the finish that BB Cushions provide so I decided to try this new Concealer Cushion by Etude House.
Today I decided to chronicle a cruel lesson I learnt when it comes to buying Christmas sets willy nilly. Christmas time is a pretty magical time because it means cherry season, gingerbread and kick-ass mini sets from all of your favourite makeup brands. Christmas ’15 saw some pretty nifty new sets so I decided to branch out and try some new items!
In comes the bareMinerals Marvellous Moxie “Love at First Kiss” lipstick set which looked like a really neat set of lipsticks. I haven’t weighed up the actual value vs a full sized lipstick but the appeal for me was trying 10 different shades of mini lipstick because it’s often a challenge for me to get through a full sized lipstick! I eagerly hopped in store at Mecca Cosmetica and swatched this set on my arm, they seemed to be pretty smooth and well pigmented so I took the set home.
