J a y J u n ❀️ Really like the packaging of Jayjun sheet masks, especially this one. I honestly don't think this sheet mask is that great. Left my skin a little sticky and the fit was way too big for my face. I think it's pretty moisturising though. Most sheet mask that are moisturizing leave my skin sticky. There was still some serum left so I usually like soaking thin cotton sheets with it and use it the next day as small sheet masks. Won't repurchase though😳
.
I will rate this mask with 3/5
My new BHA has just arrived and I received these samples and WhiteRabbit cottons as well. You can get this whole set for 16$ and free shipping from bbcosmetic.com. I was also lucky enough to find an 8% off coupon, so I paid less than 15$ for this whole set. Couldn't find it cheaper anywhere else πŸ‘Œ
.
Whenever I have really bad breakouts or some clogged pores, the BHA Power Liquid from @cosrx is my HG! Applying it in the morning and night to fight breakouts usually gives me the best results but it does dry out my skin quite a lot. I didn't see any results if I only apply it every other day though. I also noticed how my blackheads got smaller and less visible but only if I use it day&night. Currently testing it out on my brother to see if his blackheads will disappear too πŸ˜‚
.
I'm finally on my break and don't know what to do except sleeping and watching series. What do you guys usually do in your break ? 😏
.
**Everything is bought with my own money**
Sorry for being mia again. I will start posting regulary once my break starts next week πŸ˜”

I found a great way for oil control and pore coverage for oily areas and thought I might share it. I really like using this order to get a more long lasting makeup base:
.
Primer > powder > CC cream + foundation > powder
.
I prefer using a brush for my foundation. I feel like the coverage is much better and more even than with fingers or a sponge. Really like the Estee Lauder foundation, super natural finish and lightweight πŸ‘
.
Products used:
❀️ Banila Co it Radiant CC Cream
❀️ Aritaum Pore Master Primer
❀️ Estee Lauder Water Fresh Makeup
❀️ Etude House Fix and Fix Powder
.
.
I hope you all have been doing well !
New Lenses πŸ‘€ @loveshoppingholics was kind enough to send me these lenses for review purpose, thank you so much. They're always super generous and friendly. I really appreciate it. ❀️
.
They have a new lens line on their website called 'Pofee'. I was honestly already eyeing them on our first collaboration because they seem to be less dolly and look more like lenses you can actually wear in public. I feel like you always need to put on a lot of makeup to make those big and dolly lenses work, so I prefer more natural ones.
.
Lenses I received
❀️ Pofee Natural II Brown
❀️ Pofee Bling Mermaid Brown
❀️ Pofee Pearl Star Blue
.
One thing to notice is that the Mermaid and Pearl Star lens are pretty unique. It seems like there is a holographic pattern, never saw that on any lens before haha 😱

Since I'm not flying anywhere this summer I really wanted to spoil myself with some new cosmetics πŸ˜„
.
I'm a little late with the @huxley_korea hype but finally got their "fresh and more" cream and like it so far. Doesn't feel as "fresh" as the name sounds but does a good job at hydrating so far, no breakouts.
.
Have to admit that I bought the small banana lip balm on impulse but it's so cute and convenient since you can use it as keychain on your bag too 🍌
.
I usually get my eyebrow pencils from etude but switched to Innisfree because I'm lowkey still holding a grudge and their products honestly aren't that irreplaceable either πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
.
Also got my fav low pH cleanser from @cosrx because my current one is running out. Didn't have any watery tints atm so I had to get those peripera tints too. I'm good at finding excuses to buy makeup and skincare πŸ˜‚
.
Paid everything with my own money from @cosmetic_jolse and @beautynetkorea ❀️
I love JENNY πŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’ž Thank you for this super thoughtful and sweet birthday present ❀️
.
Thank you for always being there for me when life gets tough. I really value our friendship and love how we're both obsessed with makeup and cute idols. I hope our korea 2019 plan will work out. Even though we've been so busy with our studies, we could still stay in touch. Really grateful for having you in my life. Thank you for always keeping me in your thoughts 😭❀️
Sheet mask empties πŸ‡ I emptied some of my sheet masks and pretty happy with them. I'm honestly not a regular sheet masker so this is pretty much my new record haha. .
Sheet mask empties: .
⭐️ Adaline - Keep Cool and Let Shine
⭐️ B.liv Hydrate Away
⭐️ MBD Squalene
⭐️ MBD Natto
⭐️ Lululun Brighten Up .
@mybeautydiaryus masks are so basic and always nice.
.
Love the Adaline and @bliv sheet masks! I was pretty surprised about them because I didn't expect too much but I liked them even better than MBD. They feel very hydrating and lightweight. Winner of this batch would definitely be the @bliv Hydrate Away mask! Loved that one so so much. Deep hydration with a no heavy or sticky feeling afterwards. I used it before attending a wedding and my skin was perfect β˜οΈπŸ’ž
Tried the Biore UV Bright and Perfect Face Milk and so disappointed and frustrated with these ones ! They broke me out really badly. I got clogged pores all over my cheeks ! My skin condition was almost perfect and then these two sunscreens ruined it. Same thing happened to my mom ! πŸ˜₯
.
Like the Aqua Rich Essence much much more ! This one gives a white cast and despite the matte finish it feels kind of greasy on me? Not a fan of this one πŸ˜₯
.
.
Has anyone had a similar experience eith this one ?
A few days ago these sheet masks from @bliv arrived. I honestly never heard of this brand before but I love trying out new brands, especially sheet masks!
.
I received some of their nano bio-cellulose masks: .
β™‘ Hydrate away
β™‘ Soothe me now
β™‘ Age eraser .
The staff from b.liv seems to be pretty sweet, they also sent me a handwritten message and gave me bag as well, thank you πŸ’•
.
I will keep you guys updated once I have tried them all out ! πŸ˜„
Pore Cleansing Day πŸ’¦
Sorry for being mia! My exams just ended so I will have a couple days until my new semester starts πŸ˜ͺ
.
I decided to do @fiddysnails blackhead routine again (I love it so much, please give it a try!) and ended my routine with my regular skincare routine. As you can see, I love brightening products and am fighting my PIH at the moment 😣 .
Skincare routine
🌸 Shiseido Perfect Gel
🌸 Cosrx BHA Power Liquid (20-30min)
🌸 Innisfree Volcanic Pore Clay Mask (10-15min.)
🌸 Muji Sensitive Oil Cleanser (leave on for 10-15min then massage a couple minutes)
🌸 Hatomugi Skin Conditioner
🌸 Melano CC Essence
🌸 Hadalabo Arbutin Rich Lotion
🌸 Hope Girl Bee Venom Cream .
So many steps haha. I'm usually following a minimalistic skincare routine. My face felt so clean and hydrated afterwards haha
New lenses ❀ I really started to like circle lenses again and @loveshoppingholics was kind enough to sponsor me two circle lens pairs of my choice and this super cute duck case. I can't be happier about it πŸ₯πŸ’•
. .
I picked the Amaze Gray and Amaze Brown lenses. They seem to lighten up your eyes super naturally. Photos will be posted soon!
.
They were also kind enough to sponsor a giveaway for my followers. I will post the details with the review, stay tuned! 😊
Currently in Amsterdam, Netherlands! πŸ‡³πŸ‡± Love all those cozy coffee shops around the canals of Amsterdam. I feel like its such a nice city to shop at if you have lots of money on your hands, they really have lots of fancy things haha.
.
I didn't buy any cosmetics but so much alpaca merchandise, can't believe how many alpaca themed things they have! πŸ˜†
.
The Mannekinpis fries place was pretty disappointing to me though. I honestly don't think it's that special except that the fries are huge and that they have some special sauces 😁
.

The fastfood wall is pretty cool! You have to throw in some coins and it will give you warm burgers or snacks. They taste pretty nice too! Definitely, give it a try if you happen to be here haha 😁
