[REVIEW] New 2017 Innisfree Skinny Micro Liner 05 Night

Innisfree Skinny Micro Liner 05 Night Review:

The other day I went crazy and decided to go to Innisfree and walk out with a full set of makeup as advised by “the store lady” and I would take her opinion and not argue and just take those products home. Of course I only did that because they were on promotion, but still crazy in my book. So, the first thing I decided to try was this pencil liner. I never used a pencil liner in my life, I went straight to gel and liquid liner because they were blacker and didn’t smudge as easily. So this skinny pencil liner did tingle my curiosity because they claim that it is really thin!

[REVIEW] Tosowoong Green Tea Natural Pure Essence

[REVIEW] Tosowoong Green Tea Natural Pure Essence

Tosowoong Green Tea Natural Pure Essence was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Knowing that green tea plays quite well with my skin, I was keen in incorporating the Tosowoong Green Tea Natural Pure Essence into my routine. While not necessarily a hyped up ingredient, green tea is pretty reliable for its rich source of antioxidants. However, this essence does not only pride itself on just green tea – it also claims to be chock full of enticing ferments! Which, in theory, should be a good thing, right?

CNP Laboratory Daily Peeling Foam Review:

After falling in love with the CNP Laboratory Tone-up Protection Sun, I started to pay more interest to products by this brand. The background of starting as a dermatology clinic and its philosophy of producing high quality skincare products lend me confidence that CNP products should hit the right note with my skin. What next caught my eye is the CNP Laboratory Daily Peeling Foam.

Sulwhasoo Snowise EX Cleansing Foam Review:

One of the luxury Asian beauty brands that have been on my radar for quite some time now is none other than the famous Sulwhasoo. There are a few products that I am interested to try, but before I splurge on the full size I decided to get some trial sizes first. And I started with the Snowise EX Cleansing Foam.

[REVIEW] New 2017 The SAEM Lip Paint 02 Fiery Red

[REVIEW] New 2017 The SAEM Lip Paint 02 Fiery Red

The SAEM Lip Paint 02 Fiery Red was purchased by Cosmeperks.

This new collection has an amazing design. Both the lip paints and the eye paints! And, as we know, the cute candy shaped lip tints from the Saem were very popular, so it’s no surprise that when these ones came out they were an instant success in the lines of good but affordable makeup.

So I walked in the store and asked the lady to choose one for me. I said I can only take one so she should choose the one which matched me the most. For some reason she chose bright red (I agree that it matches me, just that Koreans usually don’t use bright red lipstick). I have used this lipstick every day since I got it and I can tell you almost everything there is to know about it (I think).

[REVIEW] CNP Laboratory Tone-up Protection Sun SPF42 PA+++

CNP Laboratory Tone-up Protection Sun SPF42 PA+++ Review:

Skincare regime is a complex thing, I would say. I am a beauty junkie and like checking out the many products and purposes. Even I occasionally get a headache from scouring through them.  So for the minimalists out there who prefer a less cluttered life, my (non-representative) suggestion is to have at least the basics; cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen.

Admittedly, sunscreen would not have been on my list years back.  I became aware of sunscreen only in my early 30s (do I hear some gasps of shock?)! I periodically made purchases of sunscreen, exploring both drugstore and luxury brands.  But I quickly moved from one brand to another because of either the sticky feeling, the whitecast or the breakouts they caused. I was on the verge of giving up, but pigmentations start to show up more obviously on my skin and I decided it is time I take sun protection seriously. Better late than never.

[REVIEW] Aritaum Ginger Sugar Overnight Lip Mask

[REVIEW] Aritaum Ginger Sugar Overnight Lip Mask

Aritaum Ginger Sugar Overnight Lip Mask Review:

On a lazy day, what is one make-up item that you will put on your face for a quick perk-me-up? It is likely lip colours. Ironically, the lips are the most neglected part of our face when it comes to skincare routine. We diligently remove traces of make-up on our face, but it is easy to overlook removing our lip colours. After all, when the colours fade from our lips at the end of the day, it is easy to forget.

And so I bear the consequences. I have lost count of how many lip balms I had bought in my attempts to recover my dry chapped lips. It was embarrassing whenever I talked to someone and felt them gazing at my lips, which I am sure it was not because the lips were full and lustrous but instead because they looked disastrous.

I was curious when I came across the Aritaum Ginger Sugar Overnight Lip Mask as lip balm was the only lip product that I knew off besides lip colours then. Aritaum is by Amore Pacific, whose more popular brands include the better known Innisfree, Etude House, Laneige, Iope, Sulwhasoo etc. In comparison, Aritaum products are at the lower end of the price spectrum. But it is by no means an inferior brand to its more sophisticated cousins.

[REVIEW] Mizon Enjoy Vital-Up Time Nourishing Avocado Mask

Mizon Enjoy Vital-Up Time Nourishing Avocado Mask Review:

Mizon is a Korean beauty brand that is widely known for their snail recovery gel cream. That product is highly praised by many people so I jumped on the bandwagon and got myself a tube. I wasn’t impressed at all. Since that experience, Mizon has never again caught my attention. Well, at least before the release of their sheet masks. I have bought all the variants available from a local seller and the first one I tried is the avocado variant which is a nourishing mask.
