GUIDE- Buying KBeauty Products Online!

Shopping for kbeauty products online!
I usually like to compare prices of items before buying them. With the increasing amount of kbeauty brands landing in my city, it's easy and convenient for me to try out the testers in store before finding the same product online for a cheaper price.
Of course, there are times when the stores have deep discount sales that are a much better bang for your buck compared to online prices but since it's not like all the kbeauty brands are lined up all on one street, it's more convenient (aka suitable for lazy me) to shop online.
So here are some tips!

TIP #1- Find sites with FREE SHIPPING!
My current favorite online shops are:
1) Cosmetic Love
2) JOLSE
Ex- favorite- Beautynetkorea
I was sooo sad when I got an email from them last week that they had updated their shipping fees so GOODBYE FREE SHIPPING...guess I won't be buying from them anymore.

TIP #2- Shop around sites comparing prices
Sometimes a site that usually has lower prices may have an item for a higher priced compared to a site that usually has items that are higher priced...if that sounds confusing I'll try to use an example!
Soo I wanted to buy Innisfree's No Sebum Mineral Powder, right now Cosmetic Love is having a 20% off on that line which brought the price down to $8. But, Jolse also has the same item for $7. Just a small difference but I could totally use that $1 to, you know, buy like a sheet mask or something!

TIP #3- Always use Paypal to pay for orders!
I tried to make an account but I always had problems with it so I ended up deleting my account on Paypal. But not to worry! After clicking on "Paypal" you use a debit or credit card to pay without having to make an account!

TIP #4- Order before you run out of product! 
I recommend at least 3 weeks ahead (especially during the summer).


When I ordered during the spring, it took about 2 weeks to arrive...
I stalled for the LONGEST time before ordering a new cleansing oil. Whichhh resulted in me minimizing the amount of times I applied eye makeup on or used makeup in general. The scrooge in me refused to go to a brick store to pick up a cleansing oil. MUST SAVE MONEY!

Hope my post was informative! Have a wonderful time shopping online!

KBeauty- Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer, Missha BB Cream, Etude Drawing Eyebrow, Styling Eyeliner


Ordered these from Cosmetic Love a few months back but just never got around to posting about them! It usually takes 2 weeks for products to arrive. Now let's get into product review!

They offer free shipping and have great prices on kbeauty products! If interested, click HERE to sign up!

1. Etude House Eye 10 Primer
NOT for oily eyelids! Make sure to use makeup remove or something to remove the oil from your eyelids (if you have) before applying the primer. Otherwise (lesson learned the hard way aka walking around all day with a double liner effect 😂) If you also plan on applying eyeshadow, it helps the primer do its job a bit better. Otherwise this product just sits in my makeup bag going unused because the result is the same with or without it

2. Missha BB Cream
Not worth the purchase in my opinion. It's just as cakey as the cushion BB cream I bought from them. Won't work without setting powder (which I'm not about to splurge for lol). Another product that just sits in my makeup bag with no future...

3. Etude House Drawing Eye Brown- gray brown
Now THIS is the color I've been looking for! Finally can achieve that soft eye brow look...no more dark black eyebrows look! This has been lasting me for quite some time already! Easy to use and the application is smooth. Be careful not to scratch your eyebrow though, it's staying power is not that great.

4. Etude House Styling Eyeliner
Nothing special about this eyeliner. If you want a soft brown eyeliner look, this is a convenient and easy eyeliner to use. It doesn't have a sharp point so it won't be able to draw thin lines only thick ones. And I don't think it's waterproof either so another product that I sometimes use when I don't feel like using my NYX waterproof eyeliner.

KBeauty- FaceShop Rice Cleansing Oil, BBIA Eyeliner, Skin 79 Sun Tint


1. Skin79 Sun Tint
I bought this on a whim because I was getting tired of my SkinFood Tomato Cream that I really had to rub into my face each time I wanted to apply sunscreen. It didn't help that it left a white cast on my face either...BUT THAT TIME IS NO MORE!
This product goes on like lotion does. It doesn't leave a white cast which is what I'm thankful for. Apparently it's also waterproof? But I don't think any sunscreen is waterproof so I'm not gonna hold the brand to that claim. However oily skin users beware, because this product will make your face look even oilier. Or maybe its a dewy look. Anyway it's a lot oilier than other sunscreens I've used in the past. The tint comes out a light peach color but once you start applying it to your face, it smears out to sunscreen lotion (white). It smells like Korean makeup products haha. I'll be using this for the next few months this summer!

2. The FaceShop Rice Cleansing Oil- Rich
How could a cleansing oil go wrong? I've heard really good things about this product so decided to order it from Jolse. It took three weeks to come :( but they gave samples! Finally I can be confident that I'm removing all of my bare minimum makeup! Lesson learned: don't wait to order cleansing oil from online kbeauty stores.

3. BBIA Eyeliner- Black
I've been meaning to buy an eyeliner like this for quite some time. Now that I have my cleansing oil aka eye makeup remover, I'll give this a try and see how it compares to Bobbi Brown's black eyeliner. I ordered these two products from Beautynetkorea but they didn't send samples this time :( It's usually my favorite site to use because they shipped in 1.5 weeks previous two times but this time it took more than 2 weeks to get here.










4. Innisfree White Toner
I bought this cuz it has niacin acid in it (which according to one of my favorite Youtuber beauty bloggers, Liah Yoo aka Prof Yoo) it has great benefits for the skin. It has a white color to it and is VERY watery. Be careful when pouring this product into your hand cuz half of it will drip through your fingers haha. Its more watery than the previous toner I used, Skinfood's Royal Honey Toner. That toner had a more serum type of texture to it while this one is like water. Also I'm not a fan of how you have to pour out the toner. I like the pump bottles a lot more.

CDrama- Princess Agent & Anime- Magic Kyun Renaissance & Otome- Mystic Messenger

Have you ever fallen in love with a drama? I was searching for something to watch after ending the awesome unexpected anime, Magic Kyun Renaissance!

1. Princess Agent
Currently on episode 12 of this drama (apparently it airs 2 episodes/day 4 times a week for a total of 47 episodes I think). Usually these types of dramas, the female MC starts strong then as the drama goes on she has to depend on everyone around her to help her and it just gets so frustrating to watch. Cuz I didn't start watching to watch this awesome character become this soft one that I could find in every other historical drama. But Zanila Zhao is killing it with her Xing'Er character! I'm loving the jealous daggers that YYW is throwing at her whenever she interacts with other guys. He's currently still confused about this newfound feelings for her haha. Anyway the kungfu scenes of Xing Er are pretty awesome to watch. I clicked on the drama by accident cuz the poster seemed cool, watched the opening trailer where she's basically a wuxia Mulan-type character (getting to wear a general's uniform and go into war and all) and knew I found my next drama to watch (and get addicted to). Not a fan of her burdens, the sisters though. The youngest is always doubting her and never fully trusting her, though she willing hides behind her back in times of danger...


2. Magic Kyun! Renaissance
This is based on an otome that sadly only available in Japanese on PSVita only (haven't had a Playstation console since my mom's impulse buy of the PSP). Where else do you get to see handsome ikemen with special magic art skills and singing as well? Each episode is centered around the development of one character. And I totally shipped the MC with the ice prince who had crystal roses appear whenever he sang...which led to me to maybe buying the entire ENTIRE album and listening to all the songs on repeat. The animation was gorgeous and so was the story. It was unlike any other otome-based anime I've ever seen before. Which reminds me of another otome-based anime that I'm following (one episode a week sucks...) called Kenka Banchou Otome. A girl finds her long lost twin brother who also happens to be the heir of a yakuza family. So he convinces her to switch places with him to come out on top at the yakuza fighting school cuz she is a better fighter than him.

3. Mystic Messenger
So apparently this game lasts 55 days if I have to play each of the 5 characters route day by day which makes sense since the route usually lasts 11 days (12th day is the party where I essentially act as a party planner and say sweet words to convince weird guests to attend). Played Yoosung's route and was fed up halfway when he kept comparing me to Rika (whose gone) like his whole life and his major revolved around her. He was kinda cutesy but not my type. Zen route is the route I'm currently in and boy is this boy charming! Didn't even notice his ponytail at the back till his emojis displayed it. Currently about to meet Zen! Even before the party wowww. Did not see this turn of events!! It's a fun game to play because you're not done playing in just one sitting. You go back to the game through out the day responding to emails, messages and participating in chat rooms as well as getting some hearts from the spaceship honey butter chips on the bottom. I turned on the notifications (only app I decided to receive notifs from) for only the emails and chatrooms. The messages aren't pertinent to the flow of the game.

KBeauty- Yadah Anti T Pimple Spot Treatment

This is a sponsored post (cuz I reached out to BB Cosmetic and they kindly got in touch with me and sent me two items of my choice to test out and write a blog post on!). So the opinions are ALL my own!

1. Spot Pimple Cream
I was questionable as to whether this product REALLY works like it says it does. I can't read Korean but it seems to be made of natural ingredients. It smells a bit lemony (one of my favorite scents of the moment) and its got a lotion like texture to it.
I apply it to the emerging pimples or whiteheads with a Q-tip because although the package says you can just squeeze out the product and apply it to the trouble spot then rub it in with the rounded top applicator, it's a bit unhygenic...so Q-TIPS! 
Final opinion-
I've used this quite a few tiny pimples for more than a month now and I have to say that it does help minimize scarring and help your pimple to heal faster. Now it's not going to be a miracle treatment where POOF your pimple is gone kind of magic act; you have to go to the dermatologist for that kind of magic.


2. Foaming Cleanser
I love the lemony scent all the Yadah products have! It comes out as foam from the bottle so a lot is actually just a little. The tiny sampler bottle lasted me a few months! I noticed that my skin did minimize the occurrence of pimples but didn't completely erradicate them. I have combination oily sensitive skin and this cleanser was very gentle for my use.
The other two samples I haven't been able to test them out yet as I'm still using my current toner and cream. But once I do I'll be sure to update the blog!

Thanks for reading!!
