I like this compact powder. I admit I bought this because of the packaging (I'm a sucker for cute, ultra-feminine pink packaging) and because it was dirt cheap (I think this was 6000 won, aka around 5 dollars maybe?). The problem is that the shade I got (number 2) looks a bit too peachy on my skin, so I have to blend it well (otherwise, my face looks kind of orange-y).

This is a nice foam cleanser. It lathers well and it contains microgranules for achieving some mini-exfoliation. I really like the texture of this. It is really thick and it feels luxurious on the skin. I think it removes makeup and sunscreen quite well, but I just use cleansing oil first to make sure everything is well removed afterwards.

I got a sample of this. It's an OK moisturizer. Texture is nice and you just need a tiny amount for your whole face (otherwise, it goes on sticky). I really like that this a gel type and it is very light. Recently I have started using gel moisturizers instead of cream ones since I suspect heavy moisturizers make me break out. But I stopped using it when I learnt this contains alcohol and …Read more

Etude House has one of the best nail polish collection ever! The color payoff is impressive, you can find almost any color in all kinds of finishes (glossy, matte, glittery...). The brush is easy to work with so application is gorgeous and with a nice topcoat they can last days. And the best is that they are just around 1 dollar in Korea! The bad thing is that you can't buy them in Europe …Read more

I bought this in hopes of making my short lashes stand out more, but I'm afraid this did nothing for improving my lashes. After using it everyday for 2 months, my lashes still looked the same. Don't waste your time or money on this.

Nothing special about this. It's just a blend of oils, and not all of them are good. For example, jojoba oil, primrose oil and rose hip oil are good for your skin, but you wanna stay away from lavender, rosemary and fragant susbtances such as linalool, citronellol and limonene. I dislike when companies that claim to be "natural" use lots of perfume on their products. Seems like …Read more

I liked this somewhat. The ingredients were great and so was the smell. I loved the fact that this didn't have silicones or sulfates. The problem is that this shampoo dried out my hair a lot, just like every other shampoo does, and I needed tons of conditioner afterwards. I'm still in search for my HG shampoo, aka, a shampoo that cleanses my hair while being gentle. I just hate the dry …Read more

Not impressed. I have been wearing black nail polish for years and this was nothing extraordinary. This goes on sheer, so I needed at least 3 coats for the color to show off! It was a completely waste of time. I don't think is worth the price. They are better options out there for black nail polish, and for a fraction of the price of this.

Gorgeous nail polish. This is different to other glittery nail polishes since the glitter here is more concentrated, therefore it stands out more. I always get compliments when I wear this nail polish! Only thing I dislike is that is hard to remove; the glitter gets stuck to my nails and I have to spend tons of time for removing everything :/
