Hello lovelies! 🙂
As you all know, I’m a very big fanatic of Korean skincare and makeup. Living in the US does limit one to the variety and supply of products I can get my hands on, though I already have it better since I live in California’s beautiful City of Angels (and right in the center of the Asian community as well)! 🙂
Whenever there are items that I want that I can’t find in actual Korean cosmetics stores around the areas that I live in and frequent, I always look on Koreadepart, a website that sells a variety of popular Korean cosmetics for low prices directly from South Korea! ❤
Though Koreadepart does sell its products for a very low price, the shipping (either EMS or registered airmail) can be costly if you are only ordering one or two items. This is why, whenever I do shop on their website, I tend to order many items all at once, so I really get my money’s worth 🙂
I just bought some things recently, most of which are products that I’ve used before and am restocking, but there are a few new ones that I can’t wait to try as well! ❤
My package finally arrived today (a wait of about 2 to 3 weeks), so I wanted to share some of it with you!
This is one of my favorite toners because it smells so fresh and clean. I’ve used this off and on for about two years now (I switch periodically between this and Laneige’s toner), and I really love it because it’s really moisturizing yet light. The rose extract really clarifies the skin, and hyaluronic acid moisturizes, making it a perfect toner.
And for the price that it’s sold for, I think this toner is definitely one of the best products that Innisfree has ever produced!
And of course, what I love about Innisfree is that their products contain no parabens, artificial colors, mineral oils, and animal content, making it a very safe choice! 🙂
One of my favorite loose powders for setting makeup, this Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder is comparable to both Shiseido’s and Shu Uemura’s, but of course for less than half the price! 😀 I’ve been using this for about two years now, and I’m absolutely in love with it!
Formulated with sebum control powder, made of Jeju natural minerals and mint extracts, this product keeps a perfect balance between oil and moisture to create healthy skin! It helps my makeup stay fresh even when it’s over 100 degrees outside! 🙂
And a big plus – a little goes a long way (which is why, even though it comes in such a small package, it’ll last for such a long time)!
What’s even better is that Innisfree stays true to its brand of eco-friendliness, as this powder is paraben-free, tacl-free, artificial-pigment-free, animal-natura-material-free, mineral-oil-free, and artificial-scent-free.
And for the price that you get it for, this powder is a definite must-buy! ❤
I’ve heard a lot of great things about Innisfree’s eyeshadows, so I decided to try this in a fairly neutral shade 🙂
Korean makeup really emphasizes glitter, especially for the lower eyeline so that the aegyo sal (or a slightly puffy eye bag) is more prominent, as it accentuates a more youthful, playful, and innocent look.
I’ve tried a lot of eyeshadows, be it dry or liquid, but I’m always open to trying new ones, especially this one because it’s gotten so much good reviews.
Another item that I’m restocking is this eyebrow pencil. It really makes drawing/filling in my eyebrows so easy and fast, and I love the colors that Korean cosmetics offer because they’re a lot lighter than the ones that are offered on the American market.
While American makeup emphasizes bold and very defined arches, Korean makeup focuses more on softer and fuller brows that accentuate the natural shape, be it an arch or straighter brows 🙂 This gives off a more youthful look, and the softer colors help brighten up the whole face.
I’m absolutely in love with this browscara! 🙂 I used to be okay with just filling in my brows, but after I started using this eyebrow mascara, I don’t think I can ever go back to the way it used to be!
The browscara has a somewhat thick formula, but when applied to the brows, it really helps the hairs stay down while giving it just a light pop of extra color.
This completes the whole Korean eyebrow look even more, and it’s a must if you’re trying to achieve that soft, youthful look too! 🙂
And lastly, one of the products that I’m super excited to try is the ARITAUM lip tint! 🙂 It’s one of the most popular lip tints in Korea right now, so I decided to get to try as well!
I’ve become such a big fan of lip tints because I just think they’re longer lasting than traditional lipsticks and a lot softer looking too! They’re also a lot better than lip glosses, which are sticky 😦
I have a few reds and pinks at home already, so I decided to get an orange/peach color, which is really popular in Korea right now 🙂
Can’t wait to try it! I’ll update you all with a review soon! 🙂
And here’s a look of all of the samples that I received in my package as well! 🙂
Hope you all enjoyed this little haul post, and I’ll be back with more beauty shares soon! ❤
