So today, I've decided to not procrastinate and unpack my luggage.... I'm gonna show you guys my #ShennyHauls from Seoul!!!
Unpacking my beauty and makeup loots where most of my $$$ went to lol!!!!😍💸 brb while I go take more photos to share with y'all!!
From Etude House:
MASKS!!!!!! If there's one thing you must buy when you're in Korea, it's definitely the cheap masks!!! These are usually 10,000won for 10 pieces, but I happened to be lucky that day and it was 10,000 for 20 pieces😱😱 I really wished I could whack and buy more back.. I usually buy 200 pieces but there's only 80 pieces here. I was kinda alone, there's no one to help me carry... And there's only so much that I can handle on my own sadly🤦☹
I've tried a couple of brands and I really like Etude House Masks cuz I think they fit my face shape better and I like that there are LOTS OF SERUM inside the pack!! There's always excess that I can spread over my neck, hands and even legs!!! On the contrary, Innisfree masks doesn't fit as well and I find that the masks are a lil too 'dry' for my liking.
I usually get lots of Green Tea masks cuz that's mainly for tired skin. I NEED. Also strawberry cuz it's for brightening!🤗
Also from Etude House, I stocked up on my all time favourite eyebrow pencil (Drawing Eye Brow Shade No 3) and eyeliners (Oh~m' Eye Line in brown). They are the best!!! I've been using it for yearzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz and it still works well for me 😎
I got a lip liner too - Soft Touch Auto Lipliner in shade 0835! It's in this super gorgeous mauve shade 😍😍
From 3CE Makeup:
There's only 3 things I find myself constantly re-purchasing from Stylenanda 3CE - Lip colours, highlighters and the full cover concealer!
I still have lip colours that I usually use from 3CE so I didn't stock up more but omg I just had to grab their concealer and highlighter!! Even got one for @rufflesnlace cuz she loves it too after trying on mine 😂😂 if you're curious, I use shade 02 for the concealer & shade Gold Pink for the highlighter 😊 these should be sufficient till my next KR trip😂
From Club CLIO:
OMG I LOVE CLIO😭😭😍😍 It's like 3CE but at a more affordable price!! Ever since I discovered CLIO, I've bought lesser eyeshadows and lippies from 3CE and instead, I buy them from CLIO!
This time round, I re-purchased my fav face primer (egg pore primer), 2 lip colours and one eye shadow! The rest are all new colours! I really cannot wait to try out the blackhead nose clear sheet though!! I hope it works!!!😋😋 I also got their eye&lip makeup wipes to use on days when I have heavier makeup on!
Colour swatches for the lippies I bought from CLIO! I really like their Tension Lip series and that's why I got 3 of them!
💄Tension Lip 12 Butter Kiss (it has been my everyday lip colour for the past year already! I love it!!😘😘 some of you girls enquired about the colour before so it's this!!)
💄Tension Lip 5 Shock (I usually apply it on the inner corner of my lips if I wna create the ombre lip colour effect tgt with shade no 12. I use it when I go partying too cuz it's bright & attractive!)
💄Tension Lip 25 Wild Fire (A new lip colour addition!!! Looks damn nice, can use it on days when I wanna look 'dark' LOL)
💄 Peripera Airy Ink Velvet Lip Tint 5 Elf Light Rose (new addition too! My Dajie asked me to get shade no 2 for her, so out of curiosity I decided to try it and well, it seems 😍😍. Decided to get shade no 5 since it is apparently the most popular colour! It's actually OOS at alot of CLIO outlets!)
I already own 101 eyeshadows from CLIO but I still managed to find a new colour this time round!!
P54 Madeira is a new shade I got during this trip. It's a brown eyeshadow with some purple hues in it, it's really gorgeous in real life 😍
P56 Blanc has probably been my everyday eyeshadow colour for an even longer time, probably close to 1.5years?😱 I've stock up this colour for countless time! I love it!! I'd put it all over my eyelid and aegyo-sal😊😊
From Olive Young:
Gotta practise SELF CONTROL every time I step into Olive Young 😂😂 Here's what I got:
• YURICA Face Shield & Lip Shield! Holy shit THIS WORKSSSSS, esp the lip shield!!! I don't even have to touch up my lip colour for the next 6-8hrs. Even after eating & drinking, the colour is still there!!!😱😍 All you have to do is to put on your favourite lip colour as usual, and then dab some lip shield over to set it! And viola!!!!!!
• April Skin Magic Snow Cushion. The word magic isn't lying at all!!! Wth when I first tried it, I swear my jaws d r o p p e d !!!! Just one puff is enough to cover my entire face and the coverage is soooooo goooood😭😭 So I have decided to stock up more in case my current one runs out lol
The IDS DD Perfector used to be my No 1 foundation but I guess it has now find its contender!! I use shade no 22 for the April Skin cushion if you're curious!
• Olive Young sponge. Only 4000won and it is DAMN GOOD OMG. Better than those cheap sponges I've tried, better than Etude House ones, and I find it almost equivalent to the real beauty blender!! And only 4000won ($5) I have no complains. It becomes even more like mochi-like-soft when its wet. I just wanna use it to bua on my face whole day long lol. Not kidding!! It's so soft I wna cry
This is in fact my FIRST time buying something from Aritaum despite visiting Seoul so many times!! During a post I posted a couple of months back on the Korean products I use, a reader commented that I should check Aritaum out, and so I did!!! 🤗
I really like the lippies over here too! Hahaha now I have 3 new additions omgzzzz🤦🤦🙈🙈 how many lips do I have? Also got 2 eye shadows and the IOPE Hyaluronic Serum cuz I randomly tried it on my hand and it was 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍!!!! LOL
Colour swatches of the lip colours I got from Aritaum! Omg the lip colours are so creamy and rich and sooooo good😭😭😭 I had such a hard time choosing the colours!!!! If only I had lots of 💰, I would probably wiped all colours out🤣🤣
Haven't got the chance to test them out on my lips yet, I'll update again when I get the chance to! But so far, it seems really legit on my hands!😍
Lazy to swatch the eyeshadows I got but you can kinda tell the colour from here!!
Left side: Shade M08 is a pinkish-nude-brown shade! This kinda colour seems really popz right now among the Koreans!
Right side: Shade M06 is just a basic nude brown which is good for eye contouring and blending!
And yessss, most of my eyeshadows are brown/pinkish/nudish LOL. I just can't seem to pull off adventurous eye colours very well :(
From The Saem:
Honestlyyyyy, I dread stepping into The Saem. If anyone has ever stepped in, you would probably get what I mean. The sales people are just ULTRA MEGA PUSHYYYY, I HATE IT!!!!! Omg just let me buy what I want to and let me leave. (!!!)
Anywayzzzzz, I stocked up on my favourite Snail Deep Cleansing Foam!! Its the besttttt I love using it 😍
Also the Tip Concealer (shade no 2) cuz I've heard alot of people raving about it! If it's good, I can probably stop buying the 3CE one😂 save $$
And an anti wrinkle moisturiser for my Dad cuz I bought for him previously and he loves it alot! 😉 In fact he's the one who asked me to get one for him again! So for those who wanna buy something for your dad, maybe this is something you can get!!
Bought 2 eye cream and managed to get so many PBG freebies!! LOL I swear I've never tried bargaining for freebies so much before 🤣🤣 Managed to get a calendar, free masks, and 2 large PBG posters hehehe.😍😍
And the eye cream omg, no regretzzzz. I agree I bought initially because of PBG, but it ended up being really good!!! I can feel the areas around my eyes instantly moisturised, refreshed and it smells so good!👌👍& it's good for wrinkles too! will def buy again when mine runs out!
LEGIT I HAVEN'T HEARD OF THIS BRAND BEFORE!! APIEU, SIMI????????? LOL.
But weeks ago, @jjasminee tagged me on fb about this Fringe Blotter that Apieu was selling so I tried to find it when I was in Seoul! I really need it omg cuz my bangs.... Haywire every time when I sweat or when it gets oily or when I genna rain!! So many times I step out of home w chio fringe in Aussie but once it rains.... I tell u my fringe just auto kiew to one side LOL. I have natural wavy hair u see...
Anyway, because of the Apieu Fringe Blotter viral video, IT WAS OOS NATIONWIDE. There's not many Apieu stores to begin with, and every time when I managed to find one, it's 100% OOS. Depressing much.
I was told I could reserve, but minimum 100 orders. LOL WTH 100 ORDERS. I can wipe my fringe for a lifetime -_- anyway I decided to get the oily hair powder instead cuz I tried it on my fringe and it works!!! Although I really wanna see how well the fringe blotter works instead!!!
Also got the Messy Hair Fix Stick cuz I tried it in the store to fix my cap hair mark and it kinda works!!! Some more everything in Apieu damn cheapppppp!!
Really it's a super interesting store. Lots of weird and cute stuff 🤣🤣 even got armpit concealer and powder?? Hahahaha really super cute!!!
Missha's signature treatment essence!! Similar to SKII Miracle Water yet it's only probably 1/3 the price? My first time trying it tho cuz I've had friends raving to me about it!! 😊 I hope it's good!!!
From Renewme Skin Clinic:
Triple Water Hydrogel Masks, Sun Protection Cream and Intensive Moisturizing Cream!
Tried the mask last night and it was sooooo good!! Mask was jelly-ish instead of the paper kind and it sticks on the face really well! And my face felt freaking hydrated just after one use. Those little bumps on my chin also disappeared!! Honestly I am rly quite amazed at it. I guess that's the difference between a 1000won sheet mask VS a 6000won sheet mask😂😂
From Be-A Trend:
Remember when I said I had a couple of work meetings? :) It is with Be-A Trend!! Thank you for gifting me these products to try and test them out!!! Really excited to be working w them!! 😍
Among all the products, I guess the one product that I am super interested in right now would be the LED lip glosses!!!
Dr.Phamor LED lip colours!!! Can't wait to swatch them and try it out!!!😍😍😍😍 the black box consists of shiny lip glosses while the red box consists of matte lip glosses!
These are the colours of the black box which are shiny lip glosses!
And colours from the red box which are matte lip glosses!! Looks goooooooood!😘
And the best part about shopping in Korea? LOTS OF FREE GIFTS & SAMPLES😍😍😍 there were also lots of free masks too although I have used most of it already😂😂 wewww
Some other stuff I bought...
Came across this PBG sticky note pad and OMG SORRY GUYS ITS DAMN GROSS LA, PLZ DON'T JUDGE ME BUT I HAD TO BUY. Somemore only 4000won ($5)!! HAHAHAHAHAHA. FML this is the first time I am buying such "fan" stuff but it's really too cute to resist!!! Don't think I'll ever bear to use it though...
Got this nudish-brown bag while shopping at Hongdae for only 10,000won ($12)! 不错不错!! It's small but spacious and able to fit my camera too!😎
Flowery cardi which my Erjie's friend said look like sleep wear/bathrobe 😑😒 But it's pretty nice after wearing okay!!! And it's also the fashion right now in Seoul~~ lol. Lots of places selling such cardis!!
From Ewha shopping street. 19,000won ($23.50).
Floral off shoulder top from Ewha! 10,000won ($12).
Contemplated a long time if I should get this cuz it's kinda pricey, but I really love the words!
"May the bridges I burn light the way". From Hongdae. 20,000won ($24.70).
Korea's all about this kinda 2 piece outfit! White top and dress. White top and a spag top over 😂😂 it's everywhereeeeeeee. Lol.
From Ewha. 15,000won ($18.50).
These kinda flowy dresses everywhere in Seoul~~! Meant to be worn over the white top kind!!
10,000won ($12) from Ewha.
Intending to alter the strap of this strap so that it wouldn't be too long & hence not too low, and I wouldn't have to wear it with a white top (again) lol. It seems pretty on its own!
From Ewha. 10,000won ($12).
This yellow dress also from Ewha!
This black oversized tee from Ewha too!! LOL most of them are from Ewha sia hahahaha
Both top and skirt from Ewha as well 🤣🤣
Shades for 10,000 ($12) each, all from Hongdae!! I really like the one on the top left, the colour is kinda unique!! It's like a blend of yellow and pink!😍😎
I think the design and quality are definitely alot better than the ones you usually find in BKK!
Yupppp and that's it!!!!
I hope I haven't missed out on anything.... 🤔🤔🤔 whoa that was long and it took even longer than expected to finish up 🙈🙈🙈 Lmk if y'all have any questions, I'll try my best to answer them :)
Gonna go back to edit a new blog post on my main site!!! Sigh I miss Seoul already. I am even contemplating if I should fly back there this Sunday LOL for like 5 days before heading to Paris & London🤣🤣 but lol its super crazy if I really do that hahahaha🤦🤷
