As soon as I get enough money to buy these, I’m going straight to the Yves Saint Laurent counter in the Hyundai department store closest to my house. I’m totally obsessed with Jeon Ji Hyun and this drama. She’s so stunning. And these lip products are flawless on her, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they’ll fit me as well. Right now the lipstick is selling out all over Seoul I’ve heard. I only used one lipstick from YSL before so I’m very excited to try this one.

What lip products Jeon Ji Hyun wears  playing the role of fierce actress Cheong Song Yi in the Korean drama “My Love From Another Star”:
Rebel nude Yves Saint Laurent Vernis 105 Coral Hold up
Tint Gloss volupte shade 203 Coral Gondola
Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick shade 52


Also there’s this way to do the make up only using Etude House products and save some money:

Products used: 
* Etude House Dear My Blooming Lipstick RD304
* Etude House Woo~ Baby Lip Plumper #1

Another recommended product is the IOPE Water Fit Lipstick in shade #44 Forever Pink:

Note: Currently Aritaum (korean make-up store) and IOPE ( make-up brand) are making a lot of commercials with Jeon Ji Hyun, about My Love From Another Star styled make-up. They’re selling their products like crazy, I checked the store in local Hongdae and they’re all out of the lipsticks. I’ll update whenever I get my hands on one of these.

Extra fun!

Here’s a few of the products that Jeon Ji Hyun/Cheon Song Yi uses that I’ve bought:

Skin care routine

I’m really obsessed with keeping my skin looking good. I have been for years. This is probably because my skin is so easily prone to blemishes and can get both too dry and too oily at the same time. Really annoying. Sure, my skin has gotten a lot better by the years, but it’s far from being perfect yet. That’s also the starting ground for my obsession with make-up.

So anyhow, I thought I’d show you my current skin-care routine:

I always wash my face twice a day – once in the morning after waking up and eating breakfast, then once at night before going to bed. The “”Medstop Rengöringsgel” is my current facewash. It’s froma swedish pharmacy, so it’s not the worst, in my opinion, but still not the best. It’s made for normal to mixed skin types. I’m running out of this product and I already bought a replacement for it (another facewash-product presented at the end of this article).

Then comes my wonderful “Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner”. I love this because of the 7 in 1-approach of it, solving 7 skin problems at once, and that it actually made a positive impact on my skin when I’d been using it for a while. I even made my brother try it out as he suffers from bad skin too. It’s a really good product and I’m glad I bought it. I was close to not buying it because I was really nervous about it maybe not working on my skin, but it did. I really recommend you trying out this product.

Then comes my “Etude House Collagen Moistfull Cream”. I absolutely adore this face-cream. I’ve tried other korean face creams that I like, but this one comes at the most fair price and it also feels really good on your skin. And any type of face-cream including collagen out of american brands would cost at least five times as much if it’s supposed to be a good one.

Okay so here’s my other recommendations for facial wash-products:

I got recommended this product by a shopkeeper at an Etude House-shop in Seoul. She recommended me the pink one out of these facial washes, but I think the difference in the two products isn’t that huge. I really loved using the pink one, and I tried buying one on the airport at Gimpo but they couldn’t sell it too me because they weren’t sure if I was allowed to bring it on my plane. I can’t wait until this product arrives in my mailbox, I’m so excited to try it out. This “line of products” (Baking powder) is my favourite, I tried the other products like AC Clinic and Pore Ever, but I didn’t notice as positive a change after using the products as I did notice after using this facial wash. Also now, when not living in Korea, I’m desperate enough to pay twice the price for a really good product if I have to, when buying it on Ebay.

Here’s some other korean products against problem skin that I really recommend:

Skinfood Eggwhite Pore Foam (This product even got stolen from me once, when I was living at the Pencil guesthouse hostel in Seoul)

Innisfree Pore Tightening Gel Cream “Mint”

Tony Moly Egg Pore Silky Smooth Balm (I’ve been addicted to this product for a year) ❤
