Innisfree Bija Trouble Facial Foam

I first bought this product in Jeju, Korea. It’s not exactly one of their star product lines (think Jeju Orchid, Green Tea and Volcanic Pore Clay Mask) and I couldn’t remember exactly why I chose this over, say, the Green Tea Facial Foam. Maybe I thought that my face was in dire trouble and needed help…

Top Rising Male Actor-dols

Idols get a lot of flak when they take on dramas, due to pre-conceived notions of subpar acting, but these actor-dols smash all the stereotypes and produce consistently good work. Take a look at whom we think are making a name for themselves as actors! NOTE: Numbers are not representative of ranking 1/ Do Kyungsoo (EXO)…

Hot Young Bloods

Hot Young Bloods is a 2014 South Korean teen romantic comedy film that depicts the loves, rivalries, and friendships between four high school students in Hongseong County, South Chungcheong Province in the 1980s.

Etude House Precious Minerals BB Cream (Blooming Fit)

It hardly comes as a surprise that I use so many Etude House products, considering how affordable and good-quality they are, compared to a lot of other brands out there in the market. I’m not even a huge fan of the pink, princessy stuff which they brand themselves with, yet here I am singing praises…

Etude House Drawing Eye Brow

I first bought this product in Korea (hint, Etude House in KR gives tons of freebies!) Someone once remarked that Etude House is the cheaper alternative to Bobbi Brown in Korea because of its product range and emphasis on colours, rather than base makeup – food for thought, I guess. Product description This is a pencil type…

MISSHA Coloring Multi Stick

I’ll be honest and admit that I never really saw a use for blush – my skin condition can sometimes be so terrible that my cheeks already look red and flushed due to acne, or just dry skin in general. However, I was inspired by Pony’s Apricot look (I gush about this to everyone I talk…

LANEIGE Two Tone Lip Bar

I first noticed LANEIGE’s Two Tone Lip Bar in a K-drama (thanks product placement, aka PPL). Although it first appeared in Descendants of the Sun, I was probably too distracted by Song Joong-ki to realize it, and only paid attention to its placement in Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo. It was hard not to notice…
