Huge Korean Beauty Haul | Etude House & Skin Food


Uh oh, here lies evidence of a major weak moment whilst late night online shopping! I've heard about a few Korean beauty brands before but never really took much notice of it, so it wasn't until I saw how utterly adorable all of it was that I instantly wanted to try a few things out! I ordered from a website called Cosmetic-Love and they shipped it out to me all the way from Korea in just over a week which was really good as the delivery was free!


Etude House | Lovely Cookie Blusher | Rose Sugar Macaron & Strawberry Choux

I saw the packaging of these and fell for them. I just love those little powder puffs with the adorable pink bows on them (whether I'll actually use them to apply the blush is a different story however...). I bought Rose Sugar Macaron which is a pretty pink with shimmer, and Strawberry Choux which is the most gorgeous pastel pink shade which I wore the other day and l.o.v.e.d it. Both apply really pigmented which I was really pleased about.

Skin Food | Sugar Cookie Blush | No. 1 Bebe Pink

I was definitely influenced by the cute cherub logo on this one and I went for a lovely pale, candy pink shade. I will say however that I was really disappointed with this one, because there is barely any pigmentation to it that it's pointless even trying to use it!


Etude House | Dear My Blooming Lipstick | PK002

The risk with buying online is that you have to make your decisions based on dodgy online swatches and both the lipsticks I ordered aren't really what I was expecting which is a little annoying. This one is however a vivid fushia pink that applies fairly sheer on the lips, it's not really my kind of shade but it's one I'll definitely use it at some point. I love the little heart print on the actual lipstick and the packaging is a total winner!

Etude House | Dear My Wish Lipstick | BE101

This one is a nude peachy brown and arrived far more brown toned than I was expecting which was a bit of a bummer. I was shocked when I first applied it though as it's so so pigmented I barely needed to use any! The packaging is similar to the other one I bought but with a slightly different placement of the bow and again, completely adorable!


Etude House | Face Designing Brightener Highlighter | Pink Beam

Heart eyed emojis all round!!! I am so in love with the little heart print dotted all over this highlighter that I kinda wanted to just keep it in pristine condition forever! I did manage to bring myself to swatch it however and it gives the prettiest pinky glow.

Skin Food | Nail Vita Alpha Polish | 03 Laura, 08 Beautiful Britten

I also decided to try out some nail polish and went with a lovely pinky peach shade and a nude mannequin colour. I've tried Laura once and it applied opaque in two coats and streak free!

Have you tried any Korean makeup?
