Swatches for the @joahbeauty products I posted about yesterday. Top to bottom: 💄I went into detail about the jelly bae lipstick in my last post. I hate this shade on my but it's a great formula. 🖤 Again, more detail in my previous post but you can see here how the eyeliner is nice and dark but the inconsistency of the ink flow and the shape of the pen makes it so hard to get sharp lines. This wing on my hand is not as sharp as I would like. 💗 I can't stop telling everyone I meet about this brow pencil. The lines don't feel like a Stark contrast but rather more blurred. It's the perfect way to add subtle color to the brows. 100% recommended if you're into a very natural looking brow. . #abblogger #influenster #joahbeauty #kbeautyblogger #kbeauty #kissbeauty #koreanskincare #koreanmakeup #bloggerdiaries #asianskincare #asianmakeupartist #makeupblogger #makeupreview

This past weekend I finally found a @joahbeauty display in my local CVS and found so many more products I want to try. I received these 3 products from Joah and @influenster for review so I've been using them as much as I can. The brow pencil is everything I want in a pencil. It's very subtle and looks extremely natural. It adds the perfect amount of darkness and color before I can go in with my bow brow to add dimension and shape. BEST BROW COMBINATION EVER. As for the jelly bae lipstick, formula is wonderful but the color is just not right for me. It's like a weird medium where it's too light but also too dark. Idk what's going on with this shade. I am tempted to buy a different share but I don't need any more lip products so I won't. The eyeliner is really nice and opaque and you can see it has a fine tip. However, it's shape makes it hard for me to maneuver around my eye. The packaging goes from being really thick to thin and then an even thinner felt tip. Throws me off completely. It also isn't consistent in the flow of ink. When it works you can get the most precise line ever but then sometimes I go in to make a wing and no ink comes out of the tip. I need more time with this liner to get used to it and give it a fair review. . #abblogger #abbeatthealgorithm #asianskincare #asianbeautyblogger #asianmakeupartist #kbeauty #kbeautyblogger #joahbeauty #joah #jellybae #eyeliner #browpencil #makeupblogger #makeupreview #drugstorebeauty #influenster #influenstervoxbox #prsample #productphotography #productshoot #productphotographer

This @blithecosmetic pressed serum was the second product I received from @cosmetic_jolse during their campaign with blithe. This is a sample sized container but I've been using it almost every day since I received it and I still have a lot left because a little goes a long way. The product claims to provide skin with "nutrition & firming" but my skin also looks brighter and more even. It has helped improve the texture of my skin and works well with other products in my routine. After trying this sample, I will definitely be buying a full size of this serum. I have quite a few products I need to restock on from jolse and this pressed serum is being added to that list. I would recommend it for all skin types since it's light but can be layered for anyone who feels like their skin needs more. It also layers perfectly under a lot of my other products. . #abbeatthealgorithm #abblogger #jolsecosmetics #jolsereview #blithepressedserum #blithepattingmask #blithecosmetic #kbeauty #kbeautyblogger #koreanskincare #skincarereview #skincareblogger #skincareroutine #productphotography #productshoot #bloggerdiaries #beautybloggers #beautyreviews

This @blithecosmetic pressed serum has such a unique texture! It's creamy but not a cream, gel-like but not a gel, bouncy but not a jelly. It's almost like the richer, creamier sister of the klairs vitamin e mask with the "memory" jelly texture. .

I had been curious about @joahbeauty ever since I saw reviews about them pop up on YouTube. The reviews I watched didn't really seem to like the eyeshadow and then didn't really talk about any of the other products here. They did rave about the concealer though so I'm going to pick that up on my own. I've only used these products are not few times so no detailed review yet but here are my frost impressions: I love the eyeshadows! They're all shimmer with no matte shades but I expect that from kbeauty and don't mind it because I can still create a quick, weareable, everyday look without a matte. These blend beautifully. The brow pencil is wonderful too! It's subtle but definitely makes my brows look much better. The jelly bar lipstick has a great texture but the shade is not for me. The eyeliner is very black and smooth but the shape is hard to work with. .

I cancelled my ipsy subscription a while ago so they offered me a free bag if I renewed my subscription. I accepted the free bag since I loved some of the products this month and I was contemplating starting a new subscription anyway. I'm glad I got the @luxiebeauty Wonder woman brush. It's a shape I've wanted for a while and the Wonder woman logo makes it extra special. The @hanaleicompany bronzer is an interesting shade. I lightly contour my nose everyday but I can never use up a full size bronzer so these tiny samples are perfect. The sheetmasks I will definitely use. The @trestique lip glaze is a beautiful color but I don't know how often I'm going to use it yet. I never use primers but I'm interested in this one by @elizabethmott because it has great reviews. Overall, it's a really nice bag. I've put my account on payment vacation for a few months until I'm sure if I want to renew. . #abblogger #abbeatthealgorithm #subscriptionbox #subscriptionaddiction #ipsy #ipsyglambagplus #ipsyglambagseptember2018 #hanalei #bloggerdiaries #beautybloggers #makeupblogger #bblogger #beautyreviews

I've wanted to try products from @blithecosmetic since forever but somehow I remembered them only when I was on a low-buy and then forgot about them when I was placing orders to stock up on products. It just wasn't meant to be. Until @cosmetic_jolse read my mind and sent me some to try. So the instructions for these patting water packs say I need to dilute some in a bowl of water in a 1:100 ratio (or something similar. I don't remember but it's on the back of the bottle). Use some and then throw it away. I'm not about to waste that much water and product everyday so I filled up a mister in that ratio and used it daily. The fact that it was inside a container kept it from getting contaminated and I didn't have to make the concoction everyday. It was ready to go in a little bottle whenever I wanted to use it. I honestly loves using it. It was the easiest thing to use and made my skin so smooth it was MAGICAL! As fate would have it though I lost the little bottle. It was my favorite mister and I think I'm really not destined to use this mask even though I love it. I'm currently trying to empty out another mister so I can fill it up with more of this mask. . #abblogger #asianskincare #abbeatthealgorithm #abcommunity #blithe #blithepattingmask #glowrecipe #jolse #jolsecosmetics #productshoot #productphotography #bloggerdiaries #skincareroutine #skincarereview #kbeauty #kbeautyblogger #shelfie #skincareshelfie

Trying to get more into #shelfies because it forces me to clean my shelf and rotate products! Looking through my products every week or so to arrange them on the shelf also makes me find parts of my routine that don't need more products or do need more. I like almost everything in this #shelfie but the only product that I think doesn't do much at all for my skin is the @idewcare disco kitten mask but I hang onto it because of the cute name. I don't think peel off masks do much at all anyway and this isn't something against this particular brand or mask either. . #abbloggers #skincarebloggers #skincareregimen #skincarejourney #asianskincareblogger #asianskincarecommunity #abbeatthealgorithm #shelfiesunday #productshoot #productphotography #productreview #glamglow #parishiltoneyecream #glossier #becca #baremineralsblemishrescue #rawkanvas #discoverfound #blithe #blithesplashmask

I posted about the @wkndcosmetics simple pimple patches a few days ago and here's how they look! In the packet they look exactly like most other patches. Every box contains 4 of these sheets and each sheet has perforations running through them which makes it easier to peel the patches off for application. These work pretty well on popped pimples and my only problem with these was that they weren't as invisible as the patches I'm used to. You can swipe to see a picture of them on my forehead as well as some brows that haven't been filled in or cleaned up because of pure laziness. They aren't extremely obvious but I was using the hero cosmetics invisible+ patches right before moving to these which made them feel more obvious to me. The fact that people kept telling me they saw something on my face (and some even guessed of it was was) made me avoid using these outside the house. These patches were a PR gift from @wkndcosmetics so thank you for allowing me to try them! I would personally only use these indoors and keep using my hero patches when I'm out. I probably won't repurchase but ymmv and you might love these! . #abbloggers #asianskincareblogger #asianskincarecommunity #pimplepatch #wkndcosmetics #wknd #acneproneskin #acnepatch #oilyskincare #oilyskin #acnetreatment #antitrouble

I had a good run of good skin days. My skin was clear for a long time except for one little pimple and then a few days ago I got 2 more! Not going to hate on my skin though because besides these 2 incidents, it's been behaving really well. Having these pimples also gave me the opportunity to finally put the @wkndcosmetics pimple patches to the test. Wknd actually sent me these about a month ago in PR and I couldn't really try them out until recently. They look almost identical to the Hero cosmetics invisible+ patches that I love except for the different sizes. However, that's where the similarities stop. They aren't obvious on the skin but they're also not as undetectable as some others I've tried. They still work well but the fact that I actually had people tell me "there's something on your face" multiple times made me not want to use them outside the home.

I've been on a quest to find sunscreen that works for me for years now and this seems to be the best year for sunscreens I've had. @klairs.global recently launched this Soft Airy UV Essence and it's the third sunscreen I've fallen in love with this summer. It has the same white, silver, holographic packaging that their amazing vitamin e mask does. The sunscreen has spf50 which can sometimes leave a white cast. However, this sunscreen really is pretty airy and spreads out onto the skin while leaving no white cast. It feels light on the skin and doesn't really make the skin look any more matte or dewy. I really like using it. I haven't used it as much as I usually would since it's been rainy/stormy where I live and the rain just washes my sunscreen off. I will post an update when I've used this more but so far, I really like it. . #abbloggers #asianskincarecommunity #skincarejourney #skincarebloggers #sunscreenreviews #sunscreen #klairs #klairssunlotion #wishtrend #productshoot #productphotography #asianskincareblogger #abbeatthealgorithm #productreview #kbeautyskincare #kbeautyblogger

This is the @everydaysolution_haruharu maqui berry cream I posted about yesterday. Unfortunately, the cream is not as purple and pretty as the outer packaging. But I'm okay with that because of how much this cream made me appreciate much neglected parts of my skincare routine. It made me enthusiastic about neck, decolletage and shoulder moisturization which was something I never cared about. It's a pretty thick cream but it doesn't feel thick once it's absorbed. It feels more luxurious than it's quirky packaging would make it seem. Overall, I'm really happy with it and I might even repurchase it instead of another typical neck cream because I think this might work better. The product is available at Jolse and I'm glad I could try it out for free because it's not something I would've bought on my own. Yes the packaging is attractive but nothing else about it would make me want to buy it unless I had tried it already. . #abbeatthealgorithm #abbloggers #haruharu #asianskincarecommunity #asianbeauty #kbeautyskincare #kbeautyreview #neckcream #antioxidantcream

Is it a purple coffee cup? Kinda. But it's actually a new antioxidant cream from @everydaysolution_haruharu. Part of me wishes the little hole at the top actually existed so I could use this container to sip my tea once I had used up all the cream(and cleaned it out of course. Don't consume creams kids). The maqui berry antioxidant cream attracted me with it's promises of berries and I love berries so I gladly agreed to review it. This product was sent by @cosmetic_jolse for free in exchange for a review. This is by no means a groundbreaking face cream. However, it's an amazing neck cream! The product is marketed to be used all over the face and neck so I did just that at first but quickly realized that it was way better on the neck. I have no lack of creams for my face but I've been searching for a neck cream that actually looks like it does something and this one does! I use it all over my neck (front and back), shoulders and decolletage and then go over it with my Jade roller. My skin in those areas has been softer, smoother, more plump with hydration and just all around better! The huge size of the jar also helps since you're using it on such a huge surface area. I cannot recommend this product enough for all these areas! . #abbloggers #abbeatthealgorithm #haruharu #maquiberry #antioxidant #antioxidantcream #skincareregimen #skincarejourney #skincarebloggers #bloggerdiaries #productshoot #productphotography #beautyblogger #kbeauty #kbeautyskincare #kbeautyblogger #asianskincarecommunity #asianbeauty

I'm feeling all the red-orange-yellow sunny products! . Has the color of a product ever made you buy it? Which products did you buy just based on their pretty colors? Did you end up liking it? . Most of these products just have pretty colored packaging while the product inside is clear. But some of them actually have pretty colored product! Packaging has always influenced my decision to buy and try products but recently I've been really into products that have fun colors themselves. I'm more likely to pick up a colored cream rather than a clear/white one even if they have the same ingredients! . #abbeatthealgorithm #abbloggers #shelfie #shelfiesunday #skincareregimen #skincarejourney #skincarebloggers #bloggerdiaries #productshoot #productphotography #skincarephotography #beautyblogger #skinfood #klairs #wishtrend #sunscreenreviews #elizavecca #elizaveccahyaluronicacid

I had fallen out of doing sheet masks recently (😱 I know! Am I even a k-beauty blogger/enthusiast if I don't sheet mask?). But I found a way to "gate" back into them (okay you can unfollow me for that joke. It was nice having followers 😂). I got these @gate_solution ballon sheet masks to try courtesy of @0.8l_usa and I actually liked them! Besides the strange name and kinda boring packaging, they're pretty great. The ingredients list is packed with some delicious extracts like centella, green tea, tea tree, ginger, licorice, grapefruit, madecassoside, etc. and the essence feels really calming. It's a milky white essence and the sheets are really well soaked in it. I experienced no irritation or negative reactions to the mask and in fact my skin felt really smooth right after it. I can't speak to the anti-aging qualities of this mask because I think it's hard to see lasting effects for sheet masks but it was definitely moisturizing and calming. I will be using the rest of the masks I have remaining but I'm not sure yet if I would repurchase them. Probably depends on how easily accessible they are. . #bellon #gatesolution #kbeauty #conceptkorea #maskpack #koreanskincare #naturalbeauty #kbeautyskincare #creammask #greenbeauty #beauty #instabeauty #08liter #08l #abbloggers #asianskincarecommunity #koreanskincareroutine #sheetmask #sheetmaskaddict #sheetfaced

Let's talk about tools! Over the past few months I've gotten really into skincare tools that supplement my routine. I think they're almost as important as the actual products you use (almost. Products are still more important to me) since they determine how your products are going to be absorbed. 🍉 I've been using a 0.25mm dermaroller for about 5-6 months now and I love it! Incorporating microneedling into my routine was one of the best things I've done for it. 🌿 I started using a Jade roller ever since I got one from @rawkanvas in my skincare bundle. It feels incredibly soothing on the skin and I think it might be helping firm/tone my skin although I can't be sure. I think it's improving my skin texture and I love the experience so I'm going to keep using it. 👀 I got the nurse Jamie eyeonix a few months ago too and it claims to help eye creams absorb better. Again, not sure if it's doing much since I already like the eye cream I use and all the effects I see may just be from the eye cream itself. I think I need to use it more consistently to see the difference. .

Yes it isn't #texturetuesday (I do plan on joining the texture Tuesday fun though because I love everyone's posts) but I talked about the @neutrogena water gel lotion sunscreens yesterday so I wanted to talk more about their texture. They look creamy but you can tell how watery they are by looking at how they separate like water when spread out over a smooth/glossy surface. On the left is spf30 and the right is spf50. Both have a very similar texture and the only difference is that spf 50 is minutely more heavy on the skin for a few seconds. After having run away from any sunscreen that isn't a clear gel, I've finally found a non-clear sunscreen that I love. It even feels less tacky than some of my clear gel ones. . #poweredbybrandbacker but all opinions are honest and my own.
