I used to think that a primer is unnecessary in my makeup routine. The first primer I tried was the Benefit Porefessional, which was so silicone-y that I felt it was suffocating my skin by clogging all the pores. It did an awesome job in smoothing out my skin, but it absolutely wasn't comfortable to use. The other one I gave a chance to was the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Light, and it did virtually nothing for me. But when I decided to splurge on the Hourglass Veil Mineral, my whole perspective changed - I now cannot live without a primer! Boy, it was truly a holy grail material and definitely deserves all the hype it has gotten. By now you probably know that this product is amazing, but let's talk about how and why this has become my all-time favorite!
There are more than a handful of dupes for the cult-favorite SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, and Innisfree Soybean Energy Essence is among the more recently released ones. Instead of fermented rice, Innisfree uses fermented soybean. The one I got is a lighter version, the Soybean Energy Essence [Light], which is more suitable for my oily-combo skin in this hot weather. I haven't had much luck with fermented products, but being a beauty junkie, I can't help but to give it a try lol. Without further ado, let's get into the review!
There was so much hype around this bestselling cleansing foam in Korea that I had to get one for myself to see what's so amazing about it. Apart from being Allure's Editor's Pick, it also won Ceci magazine's K-beauty award in the cleanser category. Interested to know if it lives up to the hype? Keep reading to find out!
Cheers to the first post of 2016, and we're starting off with one of my favorite Korean brands! Whenever Innisfree releases a new lip product, I rarely misses the chance to give it a try. I've tried many of their various lip product formulas and I gotta say they are quite decent while being affordable. So when they released their latest lipstick collection for F/W 2015, I did not hesitate to add them to my huge Innisfree stash. There are so many pretty shades that would be gorgeous for the season so it was rather hard to make a decision. I ended up with two very different shades that are perfect for daily wear - one a bright milky orange and another a deep rosy pink.
When it comes to skincare, I can be pretty picky and only the best of the best made it into my prestigious holy grail list. Therefore, to call a particular product a 'skin savior,' it must have given me a spectacular result. Dr. Color Effect: Red Serum from Skin & Lab definitely deserves the 'skin savior' title as it exceeds my expectation in every ways - it has not only become a holy grail for me but also has perhaps become the best serum I've ever tried in my beauty junkie life. If you're curious to know more about this award-winning, best-selling product, keep on reading for the review (or rather, a rave).

Here comes the second part to my review of the products Born Pretty Store sent me a while back. If you haven't already checked out the first part, click here to read the review. While the last review of Born Pretty Store was entirely about lipsticks, this one will be on a blusher and false lashes which I rarely write about on my blog. I guess this is a chance to do something new :) Now, let's get on to the review shall we?
