Review: Etude House Play Color Eyes In The Cafe Palette (에뛰드하우스 플레이 컬러 아이즈 인 더 커페 팔레트)

Hello all!

I’m back with another Korea-related beauty post this week!

This week, I’ll be reviewing and revealing my take on one of my favorite products as of now–the Etude House Play Color Eyes In The Cafe palette! Recently I’ve been using it everyday, so I wanted to share my experience with the palette, and how I’ve been using the palette so far (ex. which shadows I use, and how I blend the colors together).

Review: Etude House Play Color Eyes Wine Party Palette (에뛰드하우스 플레이 컬러 아이즈 와인 파티 팔레트)

Hello all!

I’m back with another Korea-related post this week! However, rather than a travel or food-related post, this week’s post will be another one of my beauty posts!

Similar to last week’s post, I’ll be reviewing another eyeshadow palette that I copped while on my two week trip to South Korea–Etude House‘s Play Color Eyes Wine Party!

Unboxing: Althea’s Birthday Party Box!

Hello, hello everyone!

It's been quite some time since I've done an unboxing post for the blog (though that doesn't actually mean that I stopped ordering online). One of my favorite online Korean make-up marketplaces, Althea turned two a couple of weeks back so they have a couple of promos going on all month long.

One of the many promos is a signature and special edition Althea box–the Birthday Party BoxMany of you may already know this, but Althea comes up with special, themed boxes with huge discounts!

The Birthday Party Box in particular, costs PHP1430 (around 30USD) but the actual estimated cost for all the products in the box comes up to around PHP5670 (around 112USD). In total, that's a PHP4240 (82USD) discount, so that means I only paid for 25% of the total price of all of the contents–what a steal! 

My mom and I actually ordered a box each since it was so cheap, so there's no need for us to split or share the makeup between the both of us.

I’m back with another lip product review after a long break from beauty blogging! I noticed recently that my last beauty-related post was 5 posts ago (that’s a whole 2 months)… I’ll try my best to make up for it, so watch out for the beauty posts that I have lined up for the next couple of weeks!

Today I’ll be reviewing a new product from my lip product collection, the Dose of Colors Matte Liquid Lipsticks!

Beauty Secrets: How I check on my Korean beauty products before buying

Hello hello!

This week I’ll be doing another special feature (sort of) related to beauty! As most of you know, I purchase a lot of cosmetics and skin care products…so it’s always important for me to check in on the product information and reviews!

However, there isn’t too much information on Korean cosmetic brands online. So I did some research and found an app called 화해 (Hwahae) that consolidates a lot of the information I need about Korean cosmetics and their ingredients (similar to the ThinkDirty app), and I’m here to share this app with all of you!

Product Swatches: NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme

Hello everyone!

I’m back with another installment of my lip product swatches! I featured the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cremes as a part of my lip product collection last April, as a small portion of my matte lip products (which composes 2/3 of my entire collection). I thought that reviewing all of the matte products in one post would be too much for a single read, so I’ve decided to break it down even further into smaller collections!
