Review: Innisfree No Sebum Mineral [Loose] Powder

Amidst my Christmas shopping, I bought this just to tick off something that has been on my wishlist since I first started getting into k-beauty. I've seen Innisfree's No Sebum Mineral Powder touted so many times as the must-have for oily skin, which describes my face to a T. It costs about £4 for 5g… Continue reading Review: Innisfree No Sebum Mineral [Loose] Powder

Review: Banobagi Vita Genic Jelly Sheet Masks

I may have mentioned in my blogging process post about a draft or photo or two that was just buried in my notes and folders. Well, I dug up some photos that looked really nice and re-shot a sheet mask selfie, and boom. The pretty shots here were taken last May (!!!!!!) so for me… Continue reading Review: Banobagi Vita Genic Jelly Sheet Masks

Starting a Year-Long Lipstick No-Buy

Recently, I took stock of my beauty drawer, and came to the realisation that I just... have too much crap. Not exactly breaking news, but hey. *shrugs* My lipstick stash needs a bit of cutting down. It's not exactly a need, per se, because my lipsticks, high end or not, are a little luxury for… Continue reading Starting a Year-Long Lipstick No-Buy

Review: Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Vanilla

Hi everyone! This Laneige lip sleeping mask has constantly been up there on my list to try because so many have raved about it. I never expected to actually buy it, though. It's about £16-20 a pot, normally! WAY out of my ideal price range. However, K-Mall, an online store based in Korea, had them on a special… Continue reading Review: Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Vanilla

An Adventure in Mascara 

  Hi everyone! Today, I'm taking a bit of a detour from the lip things that I know and love, and delving into mascara for a bit. I don't think I've ever reviewed a mascara here despite my buzz of activity in makeup and there are reasons for that which I will get into... So. I… Continue reading An Adventure in Mascara

Review: MAC FutureForward X LeeHi

One of the big draws of Korean Beauty is all our favourite idols promoting them. From products selling out because members of EXO use them, to ranges selling well because faces like Yoona and Suzy are representing the brand, K-Beauty treats us well. The two worlds of K-Beauty and Western Beauty rarely cross, so being… Continue reading Review: MAC FutureForward X LeeHi

Review: The Creme Shop Sheet Masks

Since hearing that TK Maxx in the UK had begun to sell K-beauty items, I have made a point of dropping by more often to scour their messy shelves full of open products. You do find gems there occasionally. They're also fantastic for the odd bit of gorgeous stationary in the notebooks section! Most recently,… Continue reading Review: The Creme Shop Sheet Masks

Review: BBia Auto Last Gel Pencil Liner in #20 Jazz

Brown eyeliner has been on my radar for a while. Whilst I adore my Clio Kill Black liner, black winged liner is not entirely second nature for me and takes up so much time and effort to do. I used to be that person wearing bold red to the supermarket but now, thankfully, not so… Continue reading Review: BBia Auto Last Gel Pencil Liner in #20 Jazz

My Skincare Routine – Jan 2017

Strap in your seatbelts, readers, because this is one of my longest posts to date. It's huge because my routine doesn't change a lot over a year so I'm making this a rare, annual entry. My focus on skincare really blows up in the winter, when transitional weather wrecks my skin a little and sends me… Continue reading My Skincare Routine – Jan 2017
