FAB #2 – Korean Make-up Review

Hello, lovelies! I’m back with another FAB post! This time I’m reviewing more Korean make-up products.

I bought all of these from Jolse.com. I’m so happy I found this site. It is an online shopping mall located in Korea. The site is in English and Spanish, and is easy to use. There are lots of brands to choose from, and I feel like prices are reasonable. Shipping costs aren’t too high, but it will take some time for you to get your shipment (around 2-4 weeks).

I’m happy with my experience with the site, so I’ll be ordering from Jolse again the future!

On to the products —

Moistfull Collagen Cream – Etude House

I talked about the Moistfull Collagen Cream in one of my previous make-up reviews. It’s a product I picked up when I first got to Korea, and I’ve loved it since. I use it as my moisturizer in the morning and evening. It feels soft/soothing when I put it on, and you don’t need a lot of it. One of my favs!

Precious Mineral Any Cushion – Etude House

Despite the silly name, this is a nice BB cushion. I’ve used Etude’s Any BB cushion before, so I got sucked in again by cute packaging. I bought Natural Beige (W13). Pretty much your standard cushion which is in reference to the part where the BB cream comes out. The cushion part is nice because I don’t overdo it with the amount I use. It’s also SPF 50+, which is fairly common with Korean BB/CC creams. The color is a little light for my skin tone although it doesn’t make me look ghostly white, so it’s not bad.

Another nice thing is that you can buy refills for it. The cushion/sponge holder part pops right out!

Mask Sheets (Tea Tree & Korean Ginseng) – Etude House

Mask sheets are the best! It’s a cheap way to give your skin a bit of a mini spa treatment at home, and it’s very quick (you only need to keep them on for 10-15 minutes).

Every store has different sheets with different properties. I decided on Etude House since Jolse.com had a really good deal on them. Every sheet has something that is does well – brightening, whitening, moisturizing, revitalizing, etc. I went for Korean Ginseng and Tea Tree this time. They’re pretty typical mask sheets. They do have the scent of the ingredient they’re named for though luckily the tea tree is hardly noticeable (if you’ve smelled tea tree oil straight up you know it’s powerful stuff!). I like what they do for my skin and I haven’t had any adverse reactions, so I’d recommend these.

Power Essential Skin Toner / Balancing Emulsion – Laneige

Here we have a Korean brand being sold in the U.S. Hurray! I found that Target started carrying Laneige in their stores and on-line. Korean skincare products are known for being high quality, so I decided to buy a couple products.

I’d never used products like these very much except for when I got free tiny samples at stores. I had heard, though, they can make a big difference. I tend to break out a bit around the nose area, but since I started using these I’ve noticed that I’ve gotten a lot less of them. Nice!

The toner is $25 and the emulsion is $28, and you can find them here.

Kiss Lover Eyetone Eyeshadow – Tony Moly

Tony Moly is another good brand that I don’t hit up as often as I should. I decided to try for an eyeshadow this time. I got a shimmer color – S06 Girls’ Burgundy. It’s pretty dramatic which is different than my usual soft or neutral look. Would probably be cool to experiment with a smoky look with this one!

Ginger Sugar Tiny Lip Balm – Aritaum

As if I didn’t have enough lip products! When winter gets as cold as it does here, you always need a good lip balm. This beats the hassle of using more than one product or having to go without color in favor of a balm.

I got No.1 Flame Rose – a rose-y red (as the name implies). Not too light or too dark. It goes on with the consistency of a lip balm, but doesn’t feel sticky or anything.

Play 101 Pencil (Holiday Limited Edition) – Etude House

SONY DSC

I started experimenting with different eyeliner colors last year since I was always doing black or brown. I love using different colors now! It’s a fun way to change up your make-up look. Etude House has their Play 101 Pencil line, though the ones I bought were the Holiday Limited colors. So even if these colors aren’t around anymore, they still have some other great ones you can check out.

I got #52 (pink) & #56 (burgundy/purple). #52 is pretty light so I think you’d have to match it up with another color or product. #56 is dark and lovely. Both are creamy so they go on smooth. The Play 101 Pencils also have different styles so some have glitter, some are glossy, and some are plain creamy. Either way, I really love these colors!

So, once again, I’m pleased with all the products I ordered. I know I need to change things up by not ordering so much Etude House all the time. Can’t help it! I’ll do my best to have more variety with my next order.

Thanks for reading! 🙂
