The Face Shop Haul

So it's official. I hate myself. I swore I wouldn't really buy beauty products for the rest of the month, more so makeup since my payday haul. But the stuff just called out to me! what's a K-beauty addict to do? 

The Face Shop is a K-beauty brand that has been around in the Philippines for a long time now. There are tons of stores in the malls that you'd go to that it would seem almost impossible not to see a branch in the mall near you. Good thing they reopened in the SM Sucat branch, having moved out before. I get all my nail polishes from them since I found the Etude House nail polishes to easily chip. 

With this, I thought of sharing a haul I've done from the two trips to The Face Shop that I've done. One on Thursday, and one today. I forgot to take a photo of the thing I bought on Friday so I will just mention it here. I'll be sharing my reviews of some of these products in a later review along with my other reviews. 

Products I got:

What's New In K-Beauty 3.5

And hurrah for more new stuff coming our way. The brands have all decided to go in and launch their summer collections since it's the hot summer season in Korea. These are just some of the new stuff that the brands are launching or have just recently launched, from special edition launches to another cute character collaboration. 

I'll be posting my haul from my two trips to The Face Shop from the past few days, plus giving reviews on the haul I got previously after another week or so. 

It's safe to say we've seen this coming. The Face Shop and VDL collaborating with the Kakaotalk characters, Missha getting the Line friends, and Holika Holika getting Gudetama, it's only fitting that the cute Rilakkuma and Korilakkuma characters get into the K-beauty scene as well! And what better way to get them out there than by matching up with A'Pieu in a super cute line that avid K-beauty lovers would want to get their hands on. From cleansers to eyeshadows, cushio…

June Payday Haul

Okay! So, payday has approached me this month, and so of course, in true makeup/K-beauty addict fashion, I have ordered a few things off BeautyMNL. The site has basically become a godsend for me, because they have some Korean beauty brands that have yet to set up shop here, like Cosrx! Also, I know I said I was on a makeup ban until September, but seeing these things already up on the BeautyMNL site, I couldn't help myself and just added those to my cart. 

So, I have ordered quite a lot of stuff, half of which, or 70% of it would be skincare. I'll do the reviews after a few weeks or so, depending on which ones I've used so far, which most likely will be almost all of these. I also realized that I haven't gotten around to trying products from Holika Holika nor Missha or even Tony Moly, so this was a start. 

Cosrx AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner - I repurchased another bottle because this has become my holy grail. Or at least one of my holy grail toners. But since I am …

A Look I Attempted: Rocky Horror Picture Show's Magenta-Inspired

So, lately, I've really been into re-creating this look because I've been watching the somewhat "sequel" to it, "Shock Treatment". Also, I love "Rocky Horror Picture Show", and this was a look I did for Halloween last year (I spent it at home, but who says you can't make a Halloween look and celebrate it inside, right?). When I did this, I didn't think of taking step-by-step photos, so sorry about that. 

You have options to either wear false lashes or not, as I didn't. Also, I didn't have lip liner with me so my lipstick/tint looks pretty messy. 

Also, I'll probably post another "What's New" tomorrow, seeing as I've compiled quite a few photos to show everyone.
