Travel Haul Part 1: Makeup

Travel Makeup Haul FlatlayI’ve finally come around to properly unpacking organising my travel haul and realised how much shopping I actually did! So my travel haul will be split in two parts, makeup and then skincare. I’ve always been a bit of a shopaholic and it didn’t help that there happened to be a lot of sales on whilst I was in Korea! Anyways, now on to the haul.

Makeup haul blushers and moreToo Cool For School Play Cheek Angel Blusher #02 Sweet Peach

I couldn’t resist getting this blusher as not only is the colour a lovely peachy coral blush with a slight shimmer but the case is equally adorable. The blusher comes in compact little case with a fluffy puff at the bottom so is perfect to pack in your makeup bag for touch-ups during the day! Also, the puff is removable so you are able to pull it off to clean it or swap out your dirty used puffs for a clean one if you’re not bothered to wash it!

April Skin Magic-Cara Long Lash & Skinny Mascara

Every mascara that I have used thus far has immediately restored my eyelashes back to its stick straight form right after applying it on my curled lashes. So, I’m still on the hunt for (and yet to find) a good mascara that can hold my short but thick eyelashes in a curl! I stumbled upon this two-step long lash mascara whilst browsing the April Skin products in store and decided to give this a try.

Innisfree No-Sebum Blur Primer

I decided to give this primer a try since I loved another product from this line, the Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder. To be honest Innisfree is one of my favourite k-beauty brands and there hasn’t really been a product that I have tried that I didn’t like!

Etude House Color My Brows Eyebrow Gel #03 Red Brown

I recently dyed (& bleached) my hair again so it is now a fair bit lighter so needed a lighter shade of eyebrow gel to match my hair as the one I currently have was for my previously darker hair colour.

The Saem Saemmul Eye Primer

After running out of my Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion I was in store for a new eyeshadow primer so thought I’d give this a try, plus it was super cheap.

Review: Lily May Mac Collection Lipstick Satin Cream

Lily May Mac Lipstick Collection Satin Cream Flatlay Jewellery Accessories

Lily May Mac recently released her own line of lipsticks exclusively with Showpo and I was excited to try it out for myself. Her previous collaboration with 3CE x Lily May Mac collection was hugely popular and hyped about, and even sold out in multiple stores across Korea (be sure to look out for a review for the 3CE x Lily May Mac lipstick next month!).

Packaging

The lipstick comes in a pretty white box with metallic gold trim and looks simple yet classy. The lipstick case itself is made of a pale metallic gold plastic with ‘Lily May Mac collection” printed in a matte white colour around the case. I was a little disappointed with the lipstick packaging itself as it felt a little cheap and plastic especially in comparison to the 3CE x Lily May Mac that has a similar price tag yet still felt and looked high quality and premium .

Lipstick & jewellery flatlay

Also, on a side note, I was a little annoyed with how Showpo chose to package the goods for delivery as when my package arrived both the Lipstick boxes were quite squashed and damaged, one significantly more than the other. I’ve order makeup off multiple other online stores before and they at least lightly bubble wrap the goods to prevent it from getting crushed. The lipsticks were just placed into a large thin plastic satchel bag without anything to protect the lipsticks from sliding around and getting damaged during transit.
