YesStyle Korean Beauty Box: Review
Hello fabulous friends! It is #BEAUTYMONDAY and OCTOBER IS THIS WEEKEND. SO. I have already changed my calendar to October, got my scary movie list ready to go and chose all of the Halloween makeup tutorials I am going to film for you guys. The moral of the story: who cares about the last week of September. What a time to be alive.
BUT BACK TO TODAY’S POST: I have actually been sitting on this post for a while and I kept having other things come up that I needed to post so it kept getting pushed back but I am actually so excited about it. A few weeks ago, YesStyle sent me an entire box full of Korean Beauty Products and I am going to review all of them for you today! Also — if you are concerned, you can buy all of these products in the U.S. So if you see something you love (and you will), it isn’t out of your grasp. Don’t you worry.
Korean Makeup Review
This post is sponsored by YesStyle. All opinions expressed are mine and mine alone.
Product #1: Etude House Color My Brows in Light Brown — $7.63
I give this product a 0/10. First off, it really wasn’t the right color for me. Second, it really isn’t the right color for anyone because it is straight up orange. I would not recommend to anyone. Not a good start, YesStyle…. Plus, it is clumpy (who knew brow gel could be clumpy, amiright?) and it gets everywhere. Just stay with your Anastasia Beverly Hills dip brow. #notworthit
Product #2: Berrisom Oops My Lip Tint Pack in Dear Coral — $5.56
SO. Originally. This was also going to get a 0/10. Honestly. I put it on my lips and immediately wanted to tear it off because it tasted so bad and made my lips tingle. I just thought it was a thick, gross lipgloss. BUT GUYS IF I HAD READ THE INSTRUCTIONS I WOULD HAVE KNOWN HOW TO — USE IT AND I WOULD NOT LOOK LIKE A FOOL (ok but to be fair all the instructions were in Korean. I do not read Korean). This is not thick lipgloss like I thought. It is peel off lip tint. It goes on thick and then in 5-10 minutes you peel it off for 12 hours of lip stain. SO. Basically guys, read the instructions of new makeup (or at least Google it) so you don’t look foolish. This gets a 8/10 because it only lasted 8 hours not 12 like advertised. Semantics. It really was a good lip stain.
Product #3: Laneige Sleeping Lip Mask — $15.56
This is one of my all time new favorite products. I have used it every day since I received it. I put it on before bed and I wake up with the world’s softest lips. In Idaho, I struggle with dry, cracked lips but lemme tell you: problem 100% solved. If you also struggle with dry lips, just buy it. It will be the best decision you make all day. 10/10.
Product #4: Etude House Precious Mineral Cover & Bright Fit BB Cream — $11.61
I will be devastated when I run out of this stuff. It is the most magical BB cream I have ever used. And I have used so many. SO many. I like medium-full coverage foundation because I deal with slightly uneven skin. But this stuff is the stuff dreams are made of. It is not cakey, has incredible coverage and stays on all day. I love my Urban Decay foundation but it doesn’t have anything on the staying power of this stuff. And for $11, you literally cannot beat it. 10/10 would recommend to every person I meet and also their moms.
Product #5: TONY MOLY Skin Soothing Tea Tree Mask — $19.90 / pack of 10
This tea tree mask is great! I love sheet masks because they make me look like a monster and if my husband happens to walk in the bathroom while I’m doing it he screams BUT THEN they take away all my little baby wrinkles and make my skin glow. It is always fun. While I liked this sheet mask, I don’t necessarily think it is any better than any other sheet mask! You are probably better off just snagging one from your local Ulta in the checkout line! 7/10.
Product #6: Cushion Tint Professional Lip & Cheek Tint in Pink — $6.21
I like this product, because it is a duo. It is a matte lip color in a light lavender/pink color and it doubles as a cheek tint. My only beef with this is that as a lip color, it rocks. As a cheek tint, it is really hard to blend out. I don’t necessarily feel like it is a must have in your makeup box, but for $6, I mean you really can’t go wrong (as long as you mostly want to use it for your lips)! If you feel like you need it, you won’t be disappointed, I just don’t anticipate this flying off the shelves. 6/10.
Product #7: Berrisom Oops! Tint Cheek Cushion in Coral — $9.81
OK GUYS THIS WAS MY FAVORITE PRODUCT FROM THIS BOX. I have never used cream blush before but this stuff…..and now I don’t think I will ever go back to powder blush. I like my Tarte blushes, but the color payoff and staying power of this cheek tint cannot be beat. It stays all day (which my Tarte blushes do not) and it blends SO WELL. I look like a crazy clown with big pink circles on my face but after my beauty blender is done with it, I look like I am naturally rosy. The dream. If you don’t buy anything else this week, buy this stuff. 10/10. 12/10, even.
Product #8: Beauty People Gel Liner Auto Pencil in Gleam Brown — $4.76
This product is okay. It is just like any other brown eyeliner you can buy anywhere. I don’t really like mechanical eyeliners (more of a liquid eyeliner girl) but I supposed if you typically use mechanical pencils this could totally work for you! It does have a really pretty sparkle to it that you can actually see when you put it on. I give it like a 5/10.
Product #9: Tosowoong Black-Head Nose Pack — $2.90
These to me were just knock off Bioré nose strips. I did not think they worked as well as my Bioré ones, so while I will finish off the package, I would rather spend four more dollars and get the brand that actually works. Don’t bother with this one! 1/10.
Product #10: Etude House Collagen Eye Patch — $2.61
Ok. This was one of my other favorite products. So I felt weird about putting collagen on my face at first. But here’s the thing. I struggle SO BADLY with dark under eye circles. I could get 12 hours of sleep and still look like I got punched in the face when I wake up. So I put these on right before I went to bed and left the excess collagen on my eyes over night. WHEN I WOKE UP. I DID NOT HAVE DARK CIRCLES. CAN WE JUST TALK ABOUT THAT. The little crows feet around my eyes were significantly reduced and my eyes were not dark purple. Life is good guys. 10/10 would recommend.
OK. I know this was a long winded post. But. Now you know how Korean Beauty products stand up compared to all of the American Beauty products I typically talk about. While some of these were TOTAL beauty busts…some of them were crazy beauty WINS. The best foundation I’ve ever used is like $11. So. I feel really good about it.
