HERA sun mate daily spf35 pa++(70ml)

Sorry guys for not posting lately!

So after i ran out of my holikaholika uv magic shield makeup sun( best shit ever, apparently i think its discontinued because i didnt see it in stores this summer when i went to korea) i decided to try out this sunscreen! I got this from my mom because she doesnt really like putting any facial stuff on. It was originally a gift from my friend when she came to stay with us. This sunscreen is apparently one of the best sellers from the brand HERA and it retails for about 30$ usd! Thats so expensive! Luckily i didnt pay for it hahha. Anyways on to the review, the packaging is sleek and nice . Squeeze tube which i like and the scent of the product is alittle weird . It comes out nice smelling from the tube but once you apply it to your face it really stinks… So everytime i apply this i kind of hold my breathe (LOL seriously it stinks imo) but i love the consistency of this sunscreen! Its so light weight and non oily! It doesnt leave a white cast on my face like other sunscreens and it literally feels like im applying moisturizer! I love it! I would give this a 4.8/5 lol because of the scent . And i wouldnt repurchase because of how expensive it is!!

Missha the style tint in coral

When i arrived in korea i picked up this tint because my lips needed some color. The texture of this tint is milky and smooth, pigmentation is soso but you can build it up. It also smells like greentea! ( i love that) and the tint is really natural and easy to blend unlike some water based tints. The application sucks because the brush head doesnt apply well.packaging is sleek, I like this product but i dont think its the best. Ill keep my eyes out for better tints

My beauty diary pearl mask

This mask is highly moisturizing and brightens up my skin just a bit . The essence is easily absorbed into the skin and doesnt leave my face feeling sticky .In my opinion it is better than the black pearl mask yet it doesnt beat my favorite strawberry yogurt one !

Etudehouse look at my lips lipstick in #12 peach

This is a very pretty peachy color, inbetween coral and pink. It suits my skintone and looks wonderful if worn in spring/summer. The pigmentation is good but needs atleast 2-4 coats to see its true color .Its moisterizing and creamy. This was my first etude house lipstick. !! It had a slight scent to it. Somewhat fruity but its hardly noticable. I like it and i would rate it a 7.5/10 . Not bad at all.

Etude house dear darling tint 01

This is my second tube of this tint, i had #02 before and to be honest i like that color more . 
This is a very jelly type of tint. It applies flawlessly and is blendable, you can adjust the pigmentation also. I like how it feels light weight. Not very heavy or noticeable as if you feel somethings on the lips; somewhat like water . very natural.!! I love it. But be careful in picking the shades! Cause 01 looks like crap on me.

Shiseido lacquer rouge in rd607 “nocturne”

Hi guys, im back with a review of shiseido’s hot selling item, my aunt gave this to me for my birthday along with a ton of other gifts. She remembered that i love red lipsticks so she picked this color up !( she works at the shiseido counter at macys) This is basically a liquid lipstick, it comes with a small doe foot applicator, it makes applying the lip lacquer easier. the packaging is very minimalistic . i love how pigmented it is, its also very moisturizing and last all day. The texture is a bit sticky but not as sticky as a lipgloss. The color itself is a very dark vampy red, i would deffinitely wear this all through winter. This is a great product overall!

Aritaum essence sheet mask nose care

I used this twice and the results are ridiculously pleasing.
At first i was unsure how to use this because it didnt give any english instructions (as you can see on the back) and the product is named “essence sheet mask” which was a throw off for me because clearly,its a freaking pore strip.
i have only used another brand of pore strips before which is biore! i love the idea of ripping off nasty gunk on my face .
The aritaum pore strip itself is black while on the packaging , it is white. Thats weird… But yea , once i opened it up i noticed a strong charcoal/medicinal scent . In my opinion i liked it because those kind if scents ussually give me the idea that the product will be effective .

To use it , first you wash you face in warm water to open up your pores and apply on the strip. FYI your nose area has to be wet or the pore strip wont stick . I left it on for roughly 15 mins (until it dried atleast lol, i didnt keep track of time)
Now the fun part us peeling it off your face and seeing the outcomes.
In the picture , (yea nasty right?) you can notice that there are more whiteheads on the right side of the strip . It took out alot of gunk in general and my nose feels tight and clean.!

Oh and when i applied this, my entire face was wet and i sort of got the left side of the strip soaked so im not surprized that there werent as much whiteheads on that side. Just a headsup.

I would deff recommend this product !!! I love it alot .!!!
Only use pore strips once a week or once every two weeks , if you do it too frequently , you can dry out your skin and etcetc lol .

Etude house: miss tangerine cheek ball blusher

This product comes in a little ball container with small beads. It includes a puff for application.

This is an amazing product, it gives my face a nice sunkissed glow and the shimmers are very fine. This is perfect for the spring/summer and it doesnt make my face look like a disco ball . I have had this product for about 2 years lol ( been neglecting it) and ive recently started using it again. i love the little puff applicator. It distributes the product on my face evenly and plus, it has great pigmentation! Yes i generally hate shimmery face products but this is so gorgeous on my medium/fair skin tone !!! Im in love~
I highly recommend this and would repurchase!!! A++

Innisfree mineral shimmering base

I ussually dont use a base when i apply makeup but i really like this product, i got this around a year ago and ive been negelecting it due to laziness. This product has a slight scent to it, smells very organic and oriental! (pleasing in my opinion) this comes with 40 ml of product, the product itself is white but blends out to be pink/purple iridescent(dont even know how to spell) color. This gives my face a beautiful healthy glow without being too overdramatically shiny and it doesnt feel greasy either.
For those who like the shiny look or like to highlight your face, grab this baby because it will not disapoint!( cant garantee)

Holikaholika oil queen cotton pact

Ok, i really had high hopes for this product because i thought that this would control the damn oils on my skin. This pact claims to control the overflow of sebum and change oily skin to soft skin. The packaging is adorable. Very compact and cute. It comes with a mini sponge.
And let me say this. DO NOT i repeat, DO NOT use the sponge, this pact will make your face look cakey and the sponge does a shitty job of distributing the product on your face. So yes. This will make your face really white, so i recommend you to use a brush. Moving on, when it comes down to the performance of the product, its not that effective, i still get oily within 3 hours and its not convinient to use again if i want to reapply unless i carry a damn brush with me everywhere i go.
I would give this a 4/10. Perhaps it might work out for some other people!

Skinfood choco eyebrow powder cake
Shade:2

This is the eyebrow powder i use daily, i like this product alot! I tend to lean into eyebrow powders rather than pencils because it makes my eyebrows look more natural. This product comes with duo shades , one darker and one lighter. I use the lighter shade for the front of my brows and the darker shade to sharpen and define the ends of my brows or to fill in any sparce areas.
I also like the applicator it comes with, it blends the powder into the brows very nicely.! Another thing i want to mention is how compact the packaging is! I love the huge mirror and the size is travel friendly. I will deffinitely repurchase this if i get a chance! This is a great product!

Missha shine tint gloss
Or01

As you guys already know, im not a big fan of lip glosses but this product is an exeption.
This gloss has very fine shimmers and shows up on the lips. Which is why they call it “shine tint gloss” i guess.( im not a big fan of shimmer lip product either goddamn.)
Theres a slight scent to this product, but it isnt bad at all.
It comes with a slim doe foot applicator! I like.
The pigmentation is opaque and a little goes a long way! I can wear this alone without lipstick underneath and it will give my lips a nice hint of color and shine.
I recommend this product! A+

Peripera jelly tint
Shade:1

This tint has fine shimmers but when you apply it on the lips, it doesnt show up.
The packaging is adorable ! +1 point for creativity.

So far i like the texture, its really moisturizing and it smells like berries
The only thing i want to mention is that this is NOT a tint. 
I was so disapointed when i noticed that there wasnt any color change when i applied and tested it.
Overall i think it makes a great lipbalm and that is what ill be using it for .

Love package came today and i thought i would show you guys what i got!!!
I told my friend to get me the laneige water sleeping pack since ive tried it before. Thought she would send me the full size but its ok these sample sizes last for quite a while! 
Ive also heard a ton of good things about the tonymoy backstage liner. I got the one in #8 khaki black! Ive tried tonymolys partylover gel liner but that one smudges too easily. I hope this one will not disapoint!
