Giant Korea Beauty Haul 2016 (Part 1)

Hey all! I’m back from my trip to Seoul and had an amazing time. I posted updates on my Instagram (wyeow1) over the past 2 weeks so you can check it out over there if you’re interested in what I got up to. I’ve gone pretty frequently over the past 5 years but have decided this would be my last trip…

Cushion Compact, Makeup, Review, The Face Shop

The Face Shop x Disney – Mike CC Long Lasting Cushion (V201)

It’s been a tidal wave of non-stop Korean beauty collaborations this summer which is such a genius marketing tactic for Korean companies because it makes you crave and  want things that you probably didn’t before. I’ve been able to exercise good self control so far on all the special collaborations/limited edition cushions and other beauty items that I’ve wanted because…

Blusher/Bronzer/Highlighter, Cushion Compact, IOPE, Makeup, Review

REVIEW: IOPE Air Cushion Blusher (01 Rose Pink)

If you’re ever in Seoul, I recommend a trip down to the IOPE store in Myeongdong because its such an interactive and eye-catchingly designed store that’s its so fun to browse around even if you don’t want to purchase anything. I stumbled across it last October and was excited to discover they also sell cushion blushers alongside their IOPE Air Cushion XP. The…

Blusher/Bronzer/Highlighter, Cushion Compact, Laneige, Makeup, Review

REVIEW: Laneige Cushion Highlighter SPF30 PA++

I initially fell down the cushion foundation rabbit hole last year and this has now extended to whatever cushion makeup product I can get my hands on – from concealer,blushers, highlighters. Not only is it more fun to apply makeup with cushions (for me at least), its so much quicker and convenient. Today I’ll be reviewing the Laneige Cushion highlighter. Product…

Cushion Compact, IOPE, Makeup, Review

REVIEW: IOPE Air Cushion XP Matte Finish (No.23 Matte Beige)

I figure it was time to get my butt into gear with this IOPE Air Cushion XP Matte Finish review because IOPE have recently released their upgraded, 4th generation air cushion in 2016 and I plan to pick up 2 of the 4 versions during my trip to Seoul this August. They are still selling the (now) old versions however,…

REVIEW: L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique Cushion Foundation (No.4 & No.7)

More cushion foundations are landing in the UK! Yay. If you don’t know what they are by now, check out my cushion 101 post for the low-down. Cushions have been the trend for a good few years now in South Korea (where they were invented), and foreign brands have been catching on to the hype since the end of last year, as…

REVIEW: Neulii Snail Bee Anti-Wrinkle Serum from Jolse + Cosrx Snail 96 Essence Comparison

REVIEW: Missha x LINE Friends Tension Blusher (CR02 Rosy Dress)

This post has been in draft mode for the longest time, sorry for the delay in posting. Only two months into my new job and still settling in and trying to juggle my time to be able to keep blogging. Every so often, Korean beauty brands team up with a non-beauty related brand, for a special edition collection. Usually this means existing…
