Last Friday, my bulk order from Korea through Avecko arrived! I was away for the ANZAC day long weekend, so I didn’t get to dive into it and unpack everything until yesterday! Anyway, without further blabbing, let’s unbox this haul! :) … this is going to be in no particular order…
Apieu Moist Creamy Concealer
I’m always willing to try a new creamy looking concealer. When I saw these on the A’pieu website there was a video demo-ing how you can use lighter and darker shades to also highlight and contour. So I was sucked into buying all the shades. Fortunately they are quite affordable :) But unfortunately, the shades don’t look that different in real life.. hmm…will have to try these out more.
Innisfree Essence, Cushion and Mascaras
Innisfree was (and still is!) having a 50% sale on all their cushions. I think they must be re-releasing the cushions soon. Lately they have been doing the My Cushion 100 cushion case promo with Yoona (she’s so pretty!). Anyway, I saw the sale and I’ve always wanted to try the Cover version of the Ampoule cushion, so I bought that for KRW10,000! (bargain!). Plus winter is coming in Australia. I love the Green Tea Seed Serum so I wanted to try the Green Tea Moisture Essence as well for the drier weather. As for the skinny mascaras, I’ve tried the Microcara before, it’s awesome for getting right down to the roots, but never the Longlongcara. I’m not sure what the difference is. But the pics show that the wand is different and I’m guessing the Longlongcara gives you looooong lashes :)
Purchased from: Innisfree through Avecko; also available eBay: Ampoule Intense Cushion Cover from eBay seller iamlove-shop; Green Tea Moisture Essence from eBay seller iamlove-shop; Skinny Microcara from f2plus1; Skinny Longlongcara from iamlove-shop.
Lalavesi Akma Cushion SF 2016-304
I have this thing with Lalavesi Akma Cushions. Every time they release a new formula I somehow “need” to try it. Anyway, they released a SF 2016-304 and of course I have to get it to compare it with the SF Classic :)
Belif The White Decoction Ultimate Brightening Essence
Loooong name… Anyway, if you’ve followed my blog for a little while, you may know how much I love the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective range for evening up my skin tone. So I was so excited when I stumbled across this new release from Belif. The White Decoction range has a few different products in it. But I thought I’d try this one out first as it’s the closest substitute to the Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution. We’ll see how it goes and whether this range can trump my beloved Kiehl’s Cleary Corrective :)
Jung Saem Mool Essential Star-cealer Foundation
Jung Saem Mool is a celebrity makeup artist in Korea. Yes, it seems to be the thing lately, with Korean makeup artists coming out with their own lines. JSM Beauty have a good range of products, but this one was interesting to me, because it comes with the concealer inside the same compact. So I thought I’d give it a try considering it was on 1+1 special.
MAC Lightful C Quick Finish Compact Cushion
This one was part my curiosity with trying another non-Korean cushions, part the packaging and partly because I haven’t tried a MAC foundation before. I would say the breakdown of the parts is 25%, 50% and 25%. Yep, 50% packaging. I mean look at it!! It is so preeeetty.
TCFS Twisty Tail Mascara
I won’t lie, I fell for the gimmicky twisty tail. It’s kinda cool. You twist the end of the mascara wand and the brush bends! And it does help with reaching those corner lashes *ahem* It does! I’m not lying :)
Amore Pacific Sun Protection Cushion
This is a sunscreen cushion, not a foundation cushion. Umm, now that I think about it, it’s like the Primera and Belif baby sunscreen cushions were cushions made for babies, and now they’ve gone full circle and made an adult version of a child’s version of the adult cushion foundation. Hmm.. anyway, I wanted to check this type of cushion out to see if they are any good as sunscreen and for touching up SPF through out the day :)
Primera Skin Relief Daily Sun Cushion
Same as the Amore Pacific Sun Protection Cushion, this is a sunscreen cushion, not a foundation cushion. I’m hoping it will be great for those makeup free days :)
Lirikos Marine Energy Clarifying Glow Cushion
I love the Lirikos Marine UV Water Cushion, so naturally I was really curious about trying this one. First impression though, is that I DO NOT like the puff applicator. Instead of the usual spongy foam, it’s more like… the best way I can describe it is it is like a stress relief ball. That more rubbery foam. It sticks to the skin when you apply the foundation. Creating a sticky bouncing, which I think takes the foundation off the skin… So already I can say that I recommend using the normal puff and not the one that comes with this cushion. Oh and the shades are like the Laneige cushions. No.21 is more like No.23.
Purchased from: CJMall through Avecko
*Phew* and that’s it for my haul :) Hope you enjoyed the pics as much as I enjoyed unboxing this haul.
Leave me a comment if there’s a particular product you’d like me to review first.
