Let’s Travel – Korea :)

Do you guys want some tips on travelling in South Korea? This blog is more personal, but there’s this professional Seoul/South Korea travelling blog that I’ve found. It’s called “Let’s Travel Korea”. If you want to find cosy places/hostels to stay during a visit to Seoul or find cool and interesting places to go during your visit to Korea, click this link and read:

On a side note, I’m currently so addicted to the korean drama “My Love From Another Star” with Kim Soo Hyun and my favourite female actress Jeon Ji Hyun. It’s such a good drama, I don’t know what to do when it will end… But that’s still a bit far away, luckily.
Lately I’ve been working a lot. And meeting friends, all the time, going out, keeping busy. I’ll try my best to write more make up reviews as soon as possible. 

The Balm Meet Matt(e) and Stila Written In The Stars eyeshadow palettes

Today I received two new eyeshadow palettes in the mail and I’m so excited to try them out!

* The Balm Meet Matt(e) – matte eyeshadow palette (I bought it cause I have such a hard time buying nice matte eyeshadows, and especially finding nice matte colours.

* Stila Written in The Stars – eyeshadow palette
I’ve realised reciently that I absolutely adore Stila eyeshadows. They’re consistence is so silly smooth and the colour payoff is usually really good. I also own a seperate Stila “kitten” eyeshadow (favourite!) and the Stila “In The Light” eyeshadow palette, which colours are absolutely gorgeous. I bought the “In The Light”-palette for myself as a Christmas present.

Please comment down below if you want me to do separate reviews on the make-up palettes with swatches so you can see what the colours look like. I’ve never tried The Balm products previously so I’m excited to see if I’m pleased with the results.

Here’s some pictures of the palettes:
