K-Beauty Shopping List

Dear, Klairs – Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream SPF40 PA++

This is a best selling BB cream in Korea. I had a free sample and was really impressed by it. It has good coverage and feels just like moisturiser when you apply it. It has colour correcting qualities and is also cruelty free.


By Wishtrend – Vitamin 75 Maximizing Cream

I also had a free sample of this and it’s like a gel consistency. I think this would be good for morning when I don’t want a thick cream. I think gel creams can be quite hydrating which was the impression I got from my sample.


Holika Holika – Piece Matching Nails Lacquer

I’ve not really heard anything about these but I liked the colours especially the light blue.


COSRX – Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser

This is supposed to be good and it’s quite affordable. It is described as a morning gel cleanser, possibly comparable with the Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser. I’ve been looking into gel cleansers because I want something light and refreshing in the morning and not too stripping.


The Face Shop – Rice Water Bright Light Cleansing Oil

In reviews this cleansing oil apparently works really well. Having run out of my The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil I am in need of a new one (The Body Shop one has awful packaging). I had a sample of the DHC Cleansing Oil but because it is olive oil based I wondered why it was so expensive. To me it seemed so similar to olive oil I couldn’t justify the price.


Missha – Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence Intensive Moist

This essence is supposed to be dupe of the SK-II Facial Essence so I really want to test it out.


3 CONCEPT EYES – Maison Kitsune Primer Setting Powder

The packaging of the Maison Kitsune collaboration is so cute that I want to own at least one thing from the collection. This powder seemed most useful to me but I did just buy one so I may consider something else like the Soft Cheek tins.


CLIO – Kill Cover Liquid Founwear Ampoule Cushion Special Set With Refill SPF50+ PA+++

This cushion foundation is meant to be high coverage and long-lasting. I just bought the Pony Effect Everlasting Cushion Foundation so I will probably order this when it runs out.


Etude House – Bling Bling Eye Stick

These eyeshadow sticks seem so affordable and a decent dupe for those expensive Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour. I’ve not tried an eyeshadow stick before but I feel like they would be so quick and easy to apply.


Innisfree – Skinny Waterproof Microcara Mascara

This has a lot of good reviews. The brush is so skinny that it seems foolproof to apply and good to get into the really small lashes. I think it could be used just for bottom lashes if the formula is more lengthening than thickening.


3 CONCEPT EYES – Mood Recipe Gel Crayon Eye Liner in Bonnie

I think this is fairly expensive for what it is but the colour Bonnie seems so perfect to me. A really nice warm light brown. Sometimes I buy cheaper eyeliners hoping for this sort of colour so I feel like I would save more money in the long run if I just spent more knowing I’d get the right shade.


Have you tried any of these products and what did you think?
