Popular Beauty Products | Should You Really Try These Korean Brands?

Hey my beautiful people!

Before I begin:

  1. This is not a product placement post.
  2. I am not in any way, shape, or form sponsored nor was I asked to do this post. 
  3. This is not advertisement.

If you’re anything like me, when it comes to make-up, you may hear so much about a product and then head to Sephora to find it and try it out. I heard so much about NARS that I actually went out and spent $30 on concealer. Never in my life did I ever imagine I would spend that much on concealer or even $20 on Tarte matte lipstick based on reviews… but I did and I have no regrets.

But maybe you’ve heard a lot about the beauty products your favorite kpop star or K-drama actor/actress swears by! Should you try it? Is it worth the try? I ran across this video from one of my favorite vloggers “Straight Outta Australia”. This is part 1 but if you’re interested in hearing more, she has a link to a part 2.

Products mentioned in this video:

  • BANILA CO | Clean It Zero
  • April Skin | BB Cushion
  • GELPRESSO | Water-proof pencil
  • Etude House | play 101 pencil
  • Snail Products

Personally, I actually liked reviews of these products.

But I will say this about the April Skin BB Cushion, I used to buy BB Cream and use it, but it always felt like something sitting on my skin never actually blending in. After searching and searching for a BB Cream that worked, I saw people talking a lot about bareMinerals so I decided to try it. It’s called bareMinerals Complexion Rescue and I have to say, I love it! (link if you’re interested) This is not a Korean product but I do really like it. I use it as a foundation and I definitely forget I even have it on. It’s great on my skin and I’m more than willing to keep paying the money to replace it when it runs out. So I don’t think I’ll be trying out the April Skin, but U will give the other products a try. I’ve been looking for a new make-up remove for like 8 months now. (Long time…)

My advice before trying out any product, see if it’s available in stores like Sephora first so you can go in and match your shade with the samples they have laying out and also to see if you have a reaction to it. If you try it on a small patch of skin first, you’ll know before the end of the day whether or not you’ll have a bad reaction to it and then if you haven’t already bought it, you can avoid disaster. But if you did buy it, you can return it before you open it.

Anyway, check out meejmuse’s video below. What do you think? Are these products really worth the hype?
