Moonshot BLACKPINK Cosmetics Review

If I look at the K-Pop industry as a whole, I’d have to say the YG Entertainment is probably my favorite company simply because the majority of the artists I like come from their company. This being said, I was a little more than a little curious to check out their cosmetic line. However it seemed a bit gimmicky and I wasn’t totally sold on … Continue reading Moonshot BLACKPINK Cosmetics Review

Granhand (그랑핸드): Korean Homemade Fragrances **Update**

Granhand is hands down my favorite fragrance shop. Their original handmade fragrances had me hooked the moment I entered their doors, well over a year ago. Whenever I need sachets for my closet, candles for my home or perfume for myself, I always make time to head over to their beautiful little hanok shop to resupply. Aside from hoarding their products for myself, they also make … Continue reading Granhand (그랑핸드): Korean Homemade Fragrances **Update**

Pokémon Cosmetics Haul: Gotta Catch ‘Em All

It’s not new news that Pokémon fever has swept the world with the release of the ever popular Pokémon Go game. Sadly, we have been unable to get that (Poké)ball rolling here in South Korea. While that’s getting sorted out, we have been able to keep ourselves temporarily satisfied in other ways, such as visiting the city of Sokcho (속초) which, by the magical grace of Mew, is … Continue reading Pokémon Cosmetics Haul: Gotta Catch ‘Em All

The Face Shop X KAKAO Friends Halloween Collection

Recently I found myself passing by The Face Shop where I stumbled upon their new limited edition  KAKAO Friends Halloween Collection.

So if you love sweets and cute packaging (like me) here are 3 hand … Continue reading 3 Deliciously Cute Hand Creams Every Foodie Needs

Innisfree Jeju House: Green Cafe

Beauty Cafes are slowly becoming the newest thing in Seoul. These cafes combine two of my favourite things, cosmetics and coffee. Innisfree has quickly become one of my favourite Korean cosmetics brands. They pride themselves on being a “natural brand,” meaning they use all-natural ingredients in their products and eco-friendly packaging. Like the brand, their ingredients also come from Jeju island, such as Jeju green tea, honey, seaweed, … Continue reading Innisfree Jeju House: Green Cafe

SSIN STEALER x Unpretty Rapstar Cosmetics

My interest in Korean beauty products and cosmetics is constantly growing. Korea has so many products to choose from. A surprising amount are high quality, uniquely packaged and won’t even break the bank. Of course there are some duds in the mix , but honestly it’s hard not to get swept up in it. My vanity is starting to accrue quite the collection, but I’m also … Continue reading SSIN STEALER x Unpretty Rapstar Cosmetics

Château Labiotte: Wine Lipstick, Lip Tint & Balm

If you’re a wine lover, you will fall in love with the wine cosmetic line from Château Labiotte. As the little sister of the popular cosmetic brand Tony Moly, Château Labiotte is one of the lesser known Korean beauty brands. To be honest, it wasn’t until I spotted their wine inspired cosmetics that I even noticed the brand. Their wine line includes lipsticks, lip tints, … Continue reading Château Labiotte: Wine Lipstick, Lip Tint & Balm
