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.

Review: EH Moistfull Collagen Emulsion

Price: S$15.50Image and video hosting by TinyPicThis 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!


Etude House Lash Perm All Shockcara Review

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!! 🙂
