Product empty: Belif The True Cream – Aqua Bomb

​I bought this product when I was back in Korea in June, this is one of the first beauty products I bought since I was back and it’s a great one. This is such a great moisturising cream and I’d been wanting to buy this for months since it had such good reviews. The product was around 38000₩ so it definitely wasn’t cheap, but since I bought it and got taxfree going back to Sweden it wasn’t that bad.

It’s a really moisturising cream and during one of the hottest months in Korea (the weather was 30 degrees Celsius almost every day) and Okinawa it really helped me through along with my second new favourite in skincare – the Estée Lauder Supreme Global Anti-Aging Cream.

However the downsides – I emptied this 50ml jar in less than 3 weeks. It went by so fast. I did also of course use a lot of product some days as it was so watery (very similar to the Laneige Water Bank Sleeping Mask in texture) that it did feel like I wasted some product. However it felt great on my skin. The product is a kinda matte light blue in shade.

I would buy the product again but I think the price tag will make me rather buy lower priced products or other high-end face creams to try out. 

First impression: Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment

   

So this was my face after trying to put on the Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment. It’s like no other face mask I’ve ever tried before. 

First reaction was;

This hurts my skin! Why did no one ever tell me that? Is it cause I just used my Thayers toner? (Mine is the witch hazel one that I’m holding in the picture) I wanted to put this mask all over my face but I gotta stop cause it actually hurts my skin😦 I guess it’s the AHA and BHA components that make the skin hurt for the first bit after application. I tried a Paula’s Choice product that hurt my skin in a similar way and it contains AHA.

After the first minute it stops hurting the skin. I’ve heard many people review this mask as having a tingling feeling but I totally disagree, it really feels a bit painful, I was even considering washing it right off because of this. The thing is that my skin is so bad right now that I am trying everything to make it better. I’m right now taking medicine, Isoretinoin Orifarm (also called Accutane or Roaccutane), and I’m just starting since a month back so I haven’t yet had any results so I’m still struggling with my skin problems. 

The mask dries really hard, and quickly, it was already starting to dry within minutes of application. This is what it looks like when it’s dried:

  
The day after I did have blemishes but some of the bigger ones I think had reduced in size. 

I’ve now used it twice, the second time I used it solely as a spot treatment and didn’t spread it all over my face but instead focused on the more troubled areas. The mask still hurts my face for the first minute, maybe a bit longer. So that’s a bit of a disappointment. Beauty is pain, right?

Update; I’ve used it 4-5 times now and I’m still not blown away with the product, and I really wanted to be. I still prefer my Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask. I’ll update again if this changes. So far I feel like this mask hadn’t reduced my blemishes, I’m more wondering if my new increase in getting blemishes might be because of it. I have dry sensitive skin…

Stocking up on MAC products

  I just received these two lovely products in the mail!

The blush is the Mac Powder Blush in the shade “Gingerly” and I got an eyeshadow base too; the Mac Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade “Painterly”.
Here below are some swatches, to the left is Painterly and to the right is Gingerly;

  

EDIT; Honestly now I’ve been using my Mac Painterly Paint Pot for months now and it’s not impressing me nearly as much as my Tony Moly Face Mix Eye Primer that really makes eye shadow colours pop and more blendable. So I would recommend the Tony Moly Eye Primer any day over any other primer. I guess I have oily eyelids since the Mac one really doesn’t work for me. Also the Tony Moly one is like a third of the price of the Mac Painterly Paint Pot.

Ski food Banana Yoghurt Mask 

  
This mask is adorable and smells lovely. It really made me remember when I was studying at Korea University, on the way to school I would often buy a banana milk and drink it on the subway…

I love this mask, Skinfood are usually really great at masks. I also adore their face and body scrubs.

I’m so happy I bought this! It has tiny scrub bits in it but most of the mask has a yoghurt feel and is very creamy in texture. This mask is supposed to be hydrating which is great for fall and winter months when your skin is lacking moisture. 

Etude House “Hello Pumpqueen” eyeshadow palette

I just couldn’t resist buying this limited edition (I assume) eyeshadow palette from Etude House. I’ve been wanting to get some more orange apricot toned eye shadows and this is a perfect palette for that. The palette is very small, it fits in my hand, which was a bit of a let-down to be honest. But the palette is very cute and I’m so excited about the new make up looks I can create with this new palette!

I love the name “Hello Pumpqueen”, it’s so cute! I’m sad I didn’t get it before Halloween but I’m sure I’ll get a lot of usage of this palette for fall. It even has a gel eyeliner in dark brown which can be smudged out to get a very cute smokey eye.

Banila co. Golden Aloe mask sheet

image

When I was living in South Korea sheet mask were a part of my routine. Since they aren’t sold at all in my home country Sweden I have lost that routine. Now looking back my skin quality was better when I lived in Seoul and since I used sheet masks around once a week I wanted to get that routine back in my life.

This Banila co. sheet mask is supposed to have brightening effects on your skin and contains Aloe Vera and Golden Kiwi (you can even see specs of kiwi seeds on the actual mask). It feels a bit cooling and since it’s brightening it will help with the redness in my skin. My skin is dry and sensitive and I easily break out the last year so the aloe vera will help soothe any scarring from acne etc. Golden kiwi is also an ingredient with great brightening effects,  I’ve previously used the sheet masks from Innisfree that have golden kiwi in them which I’ve had great results using.  It should also help soothe any bags under my eyes from sleeping too little and working lots lately.

I hope everyone is having a great day!

Estée Lauder lipstick “Restless” Review

IMG_1515

The Pure Colour Envy Matte Sculpting lipstick in the shade “Restless” from Estée Lauder designed by Kendall Jenner just arrived in my mailbox a few days ago. I got it from lookfantastic.com and after a delay because they seemed to be lacking in stock in the beginning but it was definitely worth the 2-3 week wait.

I really like the shade. I love Kendall Jenner’s style and knew I had to buy it immediately when I saw it was about to launch. It’s a brighter lipstick shade than I would usually wear but I have many lip tints in similar shades. I think it looks great on me and I’m loving that one of the Kardashian/Jenner family is finally designing make-up. The packaging has a magnetic close like the Burberry lipsticks which is pretty cool/handy.

So here’s some pics of the packaging and me wearing the lipstick. I’m pretty pale and it suits me well, in my opinion.

ETUDE HOUSE Color in Liquid Lips Review and Swatches

IMG_0869

Etude House launched their new thing for summer – Color in Liquid Lips!
It is “A melted liquefied lipstick with the intense color and high shine to make provocative yet lovely sheer lips. The cushiony water-sliding texture makes lips look supple and hydrated.”

The liquid lipsticks are sure watery and go on the lips very smoothly. So far I think the Product is very similar to the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks. This is sure a cheaper option. I own one of the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks, in the shade “Melted Nude” which I love!
This is a cheaper alternative, I am however not sure if the colors are dupes to the Too Faced Melted Lipstick colors.

The reason I got these Color in Liquid Lips in such bright colours is that I have been watching a lot of the korean drama The Producer lately and I’m in love with the main character Cindy (played by IU) has the most prettiest but also sassy lipcolor. So to create that lipcolour I bought these two shades (#PP501 Purple in Candy and #PK009 Pink in Monster) to mix in order to create her lip makeup look for the drama. The “Monster” shade is a deeper berrytoned pink and the shade “Candy” is a Bright candyfloss pink shade.

Etude House is a great make up brand and this product does not disappoint!

Here’s a picture of the swatches
