I’ve returned from Korea with more than just new memories…I’ve brought back a lot of makeup! During my stay I was able to try out most of the products and they are all easily my current obsessions. Let’s dive in!
B A S E
- April Skin Magic Snow Cushion
Let me just say that this cushion was not on my list of cosmetics I wanted to buy during my stay. However…there was a popup display in AK Plaza at Suwon station and I couldn’t refuse after swatching this cushion on my hand! She is FULL COVERAGE, leaves a nice finish, and has a very reasonable price point. Sold!
- Moonshot Face Perfection Balm Cushion
I got this ESSPENSIVE “cushion” after hearing rave reviews, but I’ve yet to be totally convinced….I’ll say I’m obsessed with it because I spent a lot of money on it…but let’s give it a little more time to impress.
- Mamonde High Cover Liquid Cushion
I may have gone a little cushion crazy, but the formula on this Mamonde cushion foundation was so good! I was reeled in every time I swatched it, so I gave in and nabbed it. High coverage and great for oily skin!
E Y E S
- Holika Holika Red Lies Eye Metal Glitter (Jewel Blast)
Girl if this ain’t a Stila liquid eyeshadow dupe WOW. I wore this bad boy almost every day in my inner corner and below the lower lash line and she stayed put! Get your hands on this ASAP.
C H E E K S
- Holika Holika Gudetama Blush (Lovely Cherry)
Okay this “cushion” (cough, cream) blush has the cutest Gudetama packaging and honestly the color is very nice. Also…it was 40% off! Over a wet bb or foundation, this can be applied with the air puff; otherwise, opt for a brush for an airbrushed application.
L I P S
- Laneige Two-Tone Matte Lip Bar (No. 2, No. 8)
These lip bars are always on my insta feed! With their new spokesmodel Lee Sungkyung (Kim Bok Joo)….I had to give in and try these bad boys out. These lipsticks manage to give a satin/matte finish without drying out the lips. This is the fastest way to get that popsicle gradient lip!
- Mamonde Creamy Tint Color Balm Intense
Matte, easy chubby pencil applicator, and wide color selection! And at a 2+2 sale? Please.
- 3CE Matte Mood Recipe Lipstick (Mellow Flower)
This lipstick has a matte and creamy formula and is part of a beautiful MLBB color range. 3CE is notoriously pricey….so I picked my very favorite color from the bunch!
