After a very hectic overhaul I’m going to be back posting a review once or twice a week.
First, I wanted to see anyone had any preference about what a reviewed next?
Would you like any products in particular? (For example, a detailed review about a product on my ‘Current Favorites’ page?)
Or any specific type of product? (For example, a foundation, a mascara, a blusher, or a contour kit?)
Just let me know in the comments! (If no-one comments I’ll just pick randomly ^^)
I’ve just added a feature to the page that I hope you will like.
At the top (below the showyourseoul title) I have added a ‘Current Favourites ♡’ page!
This is a page with my current favorite beauty items which I have split into categories, for example: lip tints, BB cushions, mascara, concealers etc.
I’m hoping this helps people that are looking for specific products in South Korea.
Each product can be found in the named brand store here (for example Banila Co. can be found in the Banila Co. store), but if there is no brand store I have put in brackets where it can be found (for example A’Pieu don’t have a store but can be found in The Saem). I cannot guarantee everything will be in every country, however there is a mix of Korean and Western products.
Reviews for each product will be coming later!
I hope it helps. ^^
Now for my second lip tint review of today after my Missha Water Full Lip Tint; Banila Co. Two Kisses Dual Tint.
This was recommended on a YouTube beauty account (will be disclosing later 😉 ) and I have managed to become obsessed with this particular lip tint.
I received it for Christmas and it is one of my favorite lip tints now.
There are 4 shades: red, orange, pale orange and pink. These colors are SUPER neon and give a VERY pigmented look. If you don’t like a vibrant colour on your lips then this tint is not for you.
I have the pink colour and as I say this colour is super bright; but it lasts a long time! Perfect for me who always forgets to touch up throughout the day.
There is an emulsion side and a gel side. The emulsion side gives a faint colour which is often used if you want an ombre lip style. The gel side is the lip tint, this can be used in the center for the ombre look or used like normal tint for a complete colour look.
The tint is slightly drying, but I think the only thing that isn’t drying my lips these days is sensitive lip balms! >.<
Therefore I would give this 5 STARS, even thought it is slightly drying the longevity of the tint is a clear winner for me.
Before I came to Korea I never really used lip tints. I didn’t really understand what they did and I had only heard of Benefit lip tint from my sister.
But in Korea you see A LOT of women with brightly coloured lips and this is because of lip tints. Here they seem to be a staple in many women’s daily make-up choice, with even the older elementary school students trying them out. (Some of my 6th grade students got scolded for trying them out and coming to school with super pink lips!)
Lip tints come in lots of different colors and every beauty company has their own version!
One I have tried and used more than I expected is Missha Water Full Lip Tint.
I have fallen in love with the Cherry Coke color and use it as my go-to red tint!
The tint goes on perfectly, however it does tend to fade after a couple of hours so be sure to put it in your bag for touch-ups.
The other problem I find is that it is drying on my lips, however I usually put my lip tint on and then put my lip balm on top.
I would give this product 4 stars out 5. One of my favorite tints, BUT too drying to get the coveted 5 stars.
One of the last cleansing foams I will review is Etude House Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Foam. This option is perfect for people that don’t like the feel of cleansing oil on your face!
I used this before I got into the Etude House Real Art Moisture Cleansing Oil (link provided).
This made my skin feel smooth however, it is a little harsher on the face. For this reason I think would be better for oily skin types. On my skin it dried it out slightly so if you have a dry complexion like me it might not work so well.
I still liked it, so I’ve kept it for when my cleansing oil runs out. Furthermore, it has multiple sizes so you can try the product first and if you like it buy a bigger size!
It is a really nice product with a nice smell and good foaming action. But because it can dry out your skin I would give it 4 stars!
The second product I use after my Etude House Real Art Moisture Cleansing Oil (link provided) is Aritaum Lip and Eye Remover.
It comes in lots of different sizes so you can buy a small one to see if it works for you first. ^^
I never really wear lip color, but this takes off my waterproof mascara easily.
I used to use Maybelline’s Eye Makeup Remover, however I had to go to Emart to buy it, it was expensive and sometimes it was sold out.
This one works out better for me because it’s a Korean brand so it’s easy to get, cheaper and does just as good a job!
I use my oil cleanser and then remove the last remains of my eyeliner and mascara with this. My new eyeliner (MAC review coming later) is really hard to get off, however this one has been doing a really great job!
In combination with my cleansing oil I would give this 5 stars, but as a standalone product I give it 4 stars as sometimes if I use it alone it doesn’t remove everything!
Another eyeliner that I am trying is Maybelline Hyper Sharp Liner bought at Olive Young.
I was in a rush to put it on the first time I used it, but it went on flawlessly. I only had to erase some mistakes I made because the tip was so thin.
The liquid didn’t smudge and held all day.
I am very impressed and would say this is a clear winner so far for me.
Once this is used up I will contine to update as I have been recommended to try- Holika Holika’s Wonder Drawing Eyeliner Pen, Missha’s Super Brush Pen Liner and Tony Moly’s Perfect Eyeliner!
If anyone has tried them, let me know. ^^
I would give it 4 stars out of 5
