Last November if you remember (it rhymed! hahaha) I did a Korean beauty products haul. If you did not get to read it, you can read it here: Beauty haul Korean cosmetics.
There were some products that I have tried and liked. The ones that I liked are the ones from Etude House and Tony Moly. I bought these from Watson’s.
In Tony Moly all the facial masks that I got were all good. And I am still using them until now. I also loved their blushers and their lip pencils. For skin care I loved their Intense Care Snail Foam Facial cleanser and their Rice Smooth Facial Toner which I am still also using.
Etude House in Watson’s is not complete, they only have few products available. I picked up some of their lipsticks and their lip pencils which I love. I also love their BB creams.
A few weeks ago I went to Glorietta, the one across Landmark, I think that’s Glorietta 4 or 5. I am not sure.
After I got off the escalator on the right side this is what I saw:
Etude House has a shop. They have a shop here in Manila all these time and I didn’t know. I began to hyperventilate.
The minute I walked in the 2 sales assistants greeted me: “Hi, Princess!” This is how they greet all their customers that walks in. They treat all their customers like Princesses. The packaging of their products and the interior of their store is like a room of a Princess. Or that’s how they want you to feel.
I had a hard time choosing which ones to get. You get confused by the colors of their products. It’s so K-pop! From the lipsticks to the blushers to the eye shadows. All were in pop colors.
I got home with all theses bags.
Let’s start with the lipsticks since I got a lot. I was kinda frustrated with their color selections. I am not really into pop colors. If ever I do wear a bold lipstick it’s usually dark bold color. Not the bold bright color. And that’s what Etude House had. Bold bright colors.
I don’t know how I’ll wear this colors but I’ll try.

The nude shades that I like in 28, 32, & 33
The only blush that I got is this cream blush called Water Color Blusher. I got the shade No. 2 Coral and No. 3 Apricot. I know I will like these. It is so creamy and very light. It blends well on the skin.
This one intrigued me. It comes in in 2 shades only and it comes in 2 forms. The bottom part is liquid and the one on top is cream. I got both shades.
Golden Ratio Face Glam in #01 Gold and #2 Pink. I can’t wait to try this!
The 2 Mascaras that I picked up are: Lash & Perm 3 Step Volumecara and Lash & Perm All Shockcara. This one is called Shockcara because it is Volume shocking, Curling shocking, Longlash shocking and Water block shocking. Whatever that means. I guess in short this is for volume & lengthening and it also curls and it is water proof. And then you’ll get shock . hahahaha. Let’s see. I can’t wait to try this one.
The third wand that I got (the white one) is for base called Oh! My Eye Lash Base.
*I wonder who they hired to translate the names of their products.
I am sure I will like these. It came also in pop colors and these 3 are the ones I like. The shades are (left to right): PP503, BR403 and OR204
Stay Up Foundation. It has SPF 30, it is anti-wrinkle and it is brightening. I am also excited to use this.
These 2 products called Precious Mineral Magic Cushion and Precious Mineral Cushion are very popular in Korea now. Other brands also have this cushion type. It is like powder but in liquid form that comes out in a sponge and when you apply it gives you that dewy look that all Korean love. You can apply it using your fingers or you can use the sponge that comes with it.
I got 2 shades. Magic Peach and Honey Beige W24.
I picked up 2 jars of their cleansing creams. I have already tried Etude House’ cleansing creams and I really like it. They have all kinds of cleansing creams and all are organic which I love.
These are the 2 cleansing creams that I want to try. Happy Tea Time in Lemon Tea and Milk Tea. I am sure I will like these cause Etude House is known for their cleansing creams.
This gel is also very intriguing. It’s called Sparkling TOC!S all in one gel. This is a 7 day clarifying gel that enhances your skin’s natural transparent glow. This is made of sparkling water and lemon extract.
This morning when I was having breakfast I watched Lisa Eldridge channel in Youtube. She has a new video that she just uploaded. And I was so happy cause she also love Korean beauty products. She recently went to Korea and she said she wiped out all their shelves! Watch her video cause she explained the “cushion” very well.
So. It’s just another haul.
I went to the Dentist this morning and it was kinda chilly. So, I had a reason to wear my blanket scarf! I love it.
