Good day dearies! It’s one more day to Friday, finally! Weekends are soooOooOoO hard to reach. Anyway, sometime back I ordered some Korean products online and I got to try out one of them, so here’s a short review on it.
Behind: Innisfree Dualcara Mascara, EH Moistfull Collagen Emulsion & Play Color Eyes in Ice Van. Front: Missha’s Style Perfect Concealer + Under Eye Brightener
Review: EH Moistfull Collagen Emulsion
Price: S$15.50This product is opaque and milky, and does moisturize rather well yet doesn’t give me any breakouts. It’s 180ml but I use a coin size of it every time so I guess it can last pretty long?
However it seems to be more suitable as a night cream because it does tend to feel very slightly sticky and shiny. I’d bought this intending to use it as a moisturizer before my foundation but perhaps I should’ve chosen the Moistfull Essence instead – think it’s closer to the Innisfree Green Tea Serum gel texture that’s less oily.
Lol nevertheless I’m still using this as a morning cream, and I’ve been too lazy to wear any makeup to work recently. Hah!
This Etude House Lash Perm All Shockcara was recommended as an all-round mascara by the EH sales person in Seoul, claiming that it gives volume and length.
I’ve used this mascara for a few times on my lashes – first the zig-zag motion then the vertical brushing. I find that this mascara tends to clump when I do the zigzag motion which i do to get more volume (the vertical brushing is okay). Then I’ll have to wipe the excess with a tissue, which I find slightly inconveniencing as I’m a Lazy Girl and I’d love for all my makeup to be applied nicely the first time round (Eyeliners are another bane but that’s a tale for another time).
Once applied the mascare stays on nicely though, but before that you’ll probably need a lash comb to separate the lashes. Another inconvenience for the Lazy Girl ’cause I prefer a lighter look and easier AND faster application.
I’ve used drugstore brands like Maybelline & Loreal mascaras before and they apply slightly more easily though they end up flaking at the end of the day. So I guess we can’t have the best of both worlds?
Here’s a quick guide to applying mascaras:
TGIF everyone!!!!!! Lots of hugs and kisses from the (near) equator here!! 🙂
