Korean Make-up Review: Part Deux

Time for yet another make-up review. It’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these, and in the mean time I’ve picked up a few cosmetics that I like quite a bit.

CC (Color Control) Cream – The Face Shop

This is a nice alternative to BB Cream. Actually I like it a lot better than the past base creams that I’ve used. It goes on very smooth and I feel like the color does’t make me look to ghost-like. It’s a shame the case it a bit bulky, so it’s not something I’d carry around. Still, I definitely approve of this one. It’s normally around 24,900 won unless you can get it on sale.

I don’t know if it always comes with theย Aqua CC starter, but I got one with mine.

 

Coffee Creamy Color Fit Shadow – Skin Food

A nice eye shadow set of neutral colors. I don’t usually wear shadows that are very flashy, so I liked this set. Not sure why they put purple in there, but it works all right with the browns (which blend nicely).

 

Magic Tint Balm – Etude House

You can almost always pic out what products come from Etude House because the packaging is almost always very cutesy. Nonetheless I can’t resist the cutey charms! This tint is #02 Magic Pink. Very bright, very fun, but careful not to put too much on. My only qualm for tints in general is the residue that gets left over if you use your finger as the applicator. Oh well.

 

Shea Butter Hand Lotion – Skin Food

Simple product, but does the job. It goes on smooth, isn’t smelly, and is very effective. ย I think one of the best hand lotions I’ve picked up here.

 

Cutey-Beauty Perfume Bar #1 – Tony Moly

This little guy is a lifesaver. I went for the cottony/baby powder scent. I try not to get perfumes that are too flowery. You don’t want to give people around you a headache. This one is also great for travel or just running around doing errands. Also great if you have to take public transportation after going to the gym.

 

GIVEAWAY!ย (ohmahgerhd!)

I’ve been wanting to do a giveaway for awhile. Now I’ve finally built up enough of something to give out. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve got all these perfectly nice make-up samples to give away. Take a peek:

I will also let you pick out a nail polish from one of these fine stores. I’ll package it all up and send it off to one of you lovely folks out there. Just leave a comment on the video or here in the blog. Of course I encourage you to share this with the internets. I’ll put the names into a randomizer and pick 2 winners.

The deadline is December 19thย 11:59 PM (KST).

Hope you liked my review. If you have any questions about make-up or Korea in general I’ll do my best to find an answer. Ask away!

Korean Make-up Review

If there’s one thing I’ve grown to love in Korea it’s probably all the cosmetic stores. There’s everywhere! The products are fairly inexpensive too. I never really stick to one brand either like I did back home. I feel like each brand has different things they do better than others – like maybe one has the best eyeshadow and another has great skin care products.

Anyway here’s a review of some of my fav make-up items. Does anyone else use these? Or something you wanna recommend to me? If you have any questions, feel free to ask. ๐Ÿ™‚
