Continuing with “Hauluary” (full credit goes to GymBagMakeup for this term!), I bought a bunch of Korean beauty items – this haul consists of an online order as well as a visit to a local Korean store.
There’s a new Korean beauty kiosk inside the local Korean grocery store that carries TonyMoly stuff among others so I had to pay a visit. 🙂
Etude House Dr. Mascara Fixer mascara base – $8 ea X2
These are replenishment for my new-found HG mascara base. Love this stuff!
Etude House Dr. Lash Ampule and Serum Set – $20
Based on the positive experience of the mascara base, I decided to give their lash serum a try. This looks promising based on the online reviews.
Etude House Skin Note Hydrogel Mask (Brightening Up, Deep Moisture) – $5 ea
I have yet to try these newfangled sheet masks made from hydrogel – they’re quite pricey usually ($10+ per mask) but I saw these for $5 each online so I’m giving them a try.
TonyMoly Panda’s Dream Brightening Eye Base – $8
Totally bought this due to the packaging and all the hype. Who doesn’t love pandas?
Holika Holika Baby Silky Foot One Shot Peeling foot mask – $7.50 ea x 3
These are a guilty pleasure of mine! They make the skin on my feet peel off like a snake moulting, and leave them as soft as a baby’s! I’ve gotten my SO hooked too. 😛
From the Korean beauty kiosk:
TonyMoly Pocket Bunny Moist Mist – $14
I’ve wanted to get this for ages and it looks like they changed the bottle design recently. I recalled the bunny was more like a little girl with a bow (it seems that version is exclusive to Sephora now).
Donginbi Red Ginseng Radiance Cushion BB #23 Calm Beige – $45
This is my first ever cushion BB! I’d never heard of the brand Donginbi but I was advised that it’s a high quality line focused on red ginseng. I was hesitant but this brand seemed to be really premium and not too overpriced. I’d been really pleased before when I tried a higher end BB cream so I am giving this a try. I like that it comes with a free refill! I also received a 20% discount on this item. 😀
Tony Moly Eyetone Shimmer Single Shadow in S04 Latte Brown – $5.50
This looks so much like Shu Uemura’s eye shadows but quite inexpensive, I had to try one to see how the formula is.
TonyMoly Professional Powder brush – $15
This has a nice shape and made of soft white goat hair. I also really like how the handle and ferrule are matte black.
The best part about Korean beauty hauling? Samples!
I really enjoyed shopping at the little kiosk – the lady who helped me was knowledgeable and helpful but not pushy. Are you a fan of Korean beauty products? Have you tried any of these?
