Review: Etude House Woo~ Baby Plumping Tint

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Etude House Woo~ Baby Plumping Tint! I have always been curious to see if these lip tints actually plump the lips, so in my latest order I decided to pick them up! There used to be two other colours of plumping tints, a blue/clear shade and a shimmering pink shade, but neither of these shades are available any more!

Fail or Holy Grail Review: Skinfood Peach Cotton Multi Finish Powder

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Skinfood Peach Cotton Multi Finish Powder! I used to have the Skinfood Peach Silky Pore Powder which looks like it has been discontinued, but since the silky pore powder was a Holy Grail for me, I was super curious to see if the new Peach Cotton Powder was too!

Review: Koelf Bulgarian Rose Hydrogel Eye Patch

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Koelf Bulgarian Rose Hydrogel Eye Patch! I thought these patches were made by Petitfee but I actually can't find any information on it either way which is funny. I picked these because I really like Rose scents, and the patches are such a pretty rose gold colour!

Store Review: Testerkorea

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about my shopping experience with Testerkorea! I have been shopping with Testerkorea more and more often recently, especially since they introduced the S Point system where you can choose your own samples! However, there are some things that annoy me when I shop with them.


Website Practicality
Testerkorea's website is very practical, it's aesthetically fairly pleasing, though I find their side banners to be a little invasive and not helpful. It is very easy to search for products, add them to my cart and check out, however I find their customer service to be lacking. The past two orders have been delayed due to trouble sourcing items. Generally this would not be an issue if they let me know, but when I email them after a week to ask for an update, the first time they lied to me and said they were going to ship the products immediately (then reversed that statement and said they had already been shipped and just hadn't updated the tracking) and the second time they clearly knew the item wasn't in stock and just hadn't really gotten around to telling me that they would have to refund me. This unnecessarily delays the shipping which really annoys me.

Review: Skinfood Soy Nutri Foundation

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Skinfood Soy Nutri Foundation in the shade W1! I picked up this foundation when I was grabbing a full face of Skinfood because it sounded like a nice foundation and appeared to come in a pretty pale shade!

Review: Too Cool For School Fresh Gore Sleeping Pack

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Too Cool For School Fresh Gore Sleeping Pack! I snagged a 10 pack of samples of this sleeping pack with my last TesterKorea order using my SPoints, and I thought there was no better time to review them than on Halloween! Each sample has 3ml of product, in total giving me 30ml to try out.

Review: Skinfood Sugar Mix Highlighting and Shading

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Skinfood Sugar Mix Highlighting and Shading Kits! Highlighting and Bronzing or Contouring are not part of my normal routine, but I have been getting more into it for my normal day to day make up just to give my face a little more shape. I decided to try these because because the bronzer is called Diet Cookies which I thought was a really cute name!

East VS West Review: Benefit Hydrating Lip Tints VS Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bars

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Benefit Hydrating Lip Tints VS Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bars! I really liked the Benefit Lip Balms and reviewed them recently, however I can't justify the price of them so I thought I would find some dupes!

Review: A'Pieu x Rilakkuma Honey Glow Serum Tint

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the A'Pieu x Rilakkuma Honey Glow Serum Tint! I saw these on Roseroseshop for $2.90 each and couldn't resist the cute packaging! I couldn't find any reviews on these products either and the product description sounded very different to a normal lip tint too, so I was very excited to try these out!

Store Review: Cosmetic Love

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about my shopping experience with Cosmetic Love! I used to shop with Cosmetic Love quite a lot, but the more I bought the more I strayed away from shopping with them since their prices were higher. The charm with Cosmetic Love was that the shipping was free, however they have recently changed their shipping policy so that now you must pay by weight. I was interested to see if the core prices on Cosmetic Love had dropped to reflect the increase of the new shipping price.


Website Practicality
Cosmetic Love still has a lovely website, though it does have some frustrating features. The drop down tabs are incredibly sensitive and big, it can be hard to move the mouse around the screen without making the drop down tabs actually drop down. However, it is easy to search for the products I wanted, add them to my cart and check out.

Provided for Review: Unik Skincare

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about two serums sent to me by review by a brand called Unik! I chose to try out the Black Snail Restore Serum as well as the Propolis Vitamin Synergy Serum because I already know my skin loves snail and propolis. There was also a really beautiful looking Rose Galactomyces Serum which I really wanted to try, but my skin does NOT do well with fermented ingredients (more on that later) so I decided to skip the rose serum.

Review: Heimish All Clean Balm

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Heimish All Clean Balm! I bought this balm because a lot of Princesses recommended it after I said that the famed Banila Co Clean It Zero caused break outs!

Fail or Holy Grail Review: Klairs Midnight Blue Youth Activating Drop

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Klairs Midnight Blue Youth Activating Drop! I bought this product because I was interested in the blue colour, but also anti aging items are always on my to buy list because I'm not getting younger. I didn't realise how very little this bottle would be though!

Review: Stylenanda Love 3CE Baby Glow Cushion

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Stylenanda Love 3CE Baby Glow Cushion! I bought this cushion because I just thought it was literally too cute, very much like the Love 3CE Cheek Makers! This is the first time that I've tried a Stylenanda base product before, so I was quite curious to see the quality!

Store Review: Sehoon_Yolo Mall

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about my shopping experience with Sehoon_Yolo Mall. I was incredibly cautious in deciding to shop with this store as they don't have amazing feedback on their facebook page, but there were also some good responses from customers, so I decided to empty out my cart of $200, and just purchase two small items instead.


Website Practicality
I found this website fairly easy to navigate, though there are a lot of other categories that I'm not interested in. I do wish there was a better way to filter products, you can only filter by brand and then by price. However I found it easy to create an account, fill my cart and check out.

Review: Stylenanda Love 3CE Cheek Maker

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the ultra cute Stylenanda Love 3CE Cheek Maker! I bought these because the packaging was just too cute for me to resist, like literally though. These were not cheap, and there were no reviews on them at the time so I took a little risk and bought them anyway because my wallet was saying oh god no Becca you can't afford these and my heart was like oh my god Becca there is no way you are not going to buy these even if you have to sell some of your shoes to do it. I really like the packaging ok guys!

East VS West: Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid VS CosRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be comparing the Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid and the CosRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid! Both of these products are liquid BHA exfoliants, and I decided to try out each of these because I didn't like the wastage that the pre soaked pads had. For the CosRX I was unable to source a proper bottle, so I got 10 sample sachets instead which allowed me to test this product over one month (3 applications in each sample).

Review: Benefit Hydrating Tinted Lip Balm

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Benefit Hydrating Tinted Lip Balm! I have the mini versions of these lip balms because I somehow collected them all over a year when purchasing other products from Benefit. A tinted lip balm worth $34NZD was not on my "to buy" list, but surprisingly enough I do quite enjoy using them!

Store Review: Nashi Lab

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about my shopping experience with Nashi Lab! Nashi Lab was recently advertised to me via Facebook as a New Zealand based Korean Beauty store, and although NZ based stores are usually  a little more expensive and limited in terms of product range, it's great to support them when you can!


Website Practicality
There are a few aspects that I like about the Nashi Lab website, and a few that could use some improvement. The biggest improvement for me would be adding Paypal as a payment option. The reason being is that I generally don't carry my credit card with me, and am quite lazy about getting up and getting it. It also helps me to track purchases so I would really like a Paypal option. There is also no login for this site, which means that if you delete your emails, there is no way to track your purchases through a loyalty on their site, and of course no loyalty rewards in place for regular shoppers. However, the website is very aesthetically pleasing and easy to browse, they have a nice selection of cult faves as well as some great brands that are quite hard to find elsewhere in NZ such as Beauty of Joseon, Cremorlab and Make Pr:em.
Oh. I lied, turns out you can make an account and I might actually be blind. I'm not sure why it didn't prompt me to create a log in or give me the option to create an account through the check out process, I'm annoyed at myself as well as the website for not prompting me to make a log in. But mostly annoyed at my blindness/stupidity. Ugh.

Review: Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner! I picked up this toner recently because I had tried a couple of samples sachets and it seemed to hydrate my skin really nicely which is really what I want in a toner!

Fail or Holy Grail Review: AzClear Action

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about my Holy Grail Acne treatment, AZ Clear Action! This medicated lotion is available over the counter in New Zealand and Australia, however most international shoppers won't be able to get this item to their country (which is how I feel like 85% of the time when I can't get things sent to NZ, welcome) but never fear, the main ingredient of this product is Azeliac Acid, so if you can't get this one there are a couple of others you can use.

Review: Kate Secret Skin Maker Zero in 00

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Kate Secret Skin Maker Zero in 00! I bought this because swatches showed the shade 00 to be super pale and lighter than MAC NC15 which sounded ideal since I wear MAC NC10! It was pretty inexpensive at $15USD so I thought it was well worth trying!

Store Review: Yesstyle

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about my shopping experience with Yesstyle! I haven't actually shopped with Yesstyle for quite a while now, but I noticed that they had one of the Benton Essences for a super duper cheap price, so I was tempted into a purchase with them!


Website Practicality
Yesstyle is a very practical website to browse, it's easy to find everything I want and the search bar works really well. I already had an account, but I still found it easy to find the items I want, add them to my cart and check out.

Provided for Review: I'm From Magnolia Wake Essence

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the I'm From Magnolia Wake Essence! This Essence wasn't technically sent to me for review, but Wishtrend offers coupons to try out (and obviously promote) new items for only the price of the postage. This gives me the freedom to talk about products I like and ignore the products that either are not interesting, not suited for my skin, or just don't work for me. Since I liked the Ginseng Serum from the same brand so much, I really wanted to try out more from the line!

Review: Etude House Berry Delicious Cream Blush

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Etude House Berry Delicious Cream Blush! I have three shades, though on Etude House's website they have five shades! No other store seems to sell the other two shades and I only just noticed the other shades right at I'm writing this so it's just a little bit too bad.
