Cathy Cat Cat Eye Wonder Film Mascara (curling and volume)

Watsons, Edae

Description: 우수한 발수력으로 오랜시간 흐트러집 없는 속눈썹을 유지해 주는 필름 타입의 컬링 & 볼륨 마스카라.  융점이 높은 hard wax 사용으로 water resistance 및 peel-off 능력 강화.  물에 대한 발수력이 강한 필름 형성게 사용으로 일상생활에서 번집을 최소화.  Big size 소나무 브러쉬로 가볍에 쓸어 올려 처집없는 컬링과 깔끔한 불륨 효과 동시 부여. 

Review: At first I thought the packaging of the cat-shaped mascara tube was weird.  But, the more I look at it, the cuter I think it is.  This mascara does what it says it will—volumize and curl.  The mascara forms tubules along your lashes (sounds weird but it looks like mascara coating) wash off easily with water and doesn’t smudge due to the oil in your skin.    

It was also on sale for 18,000 won plus buy one, get one free!

Heroine Make Kiss Me Long & Curl Mascara S (lengthening and curling) 

Watsons, Edae

Description: 슈퍼 롱업 섬유와 속눈썹 롱코팅제가 새롭게 함유되어 5배 길어지는 슈퍼 사이즈업 속눈썹 연출과 동시에 24시간 쳐짐 없이 깔끔하게 지속됩니다. 컬링 셋 폴리머 배합으로 뭉침없이 윤기있고 아찔한 속눈썹으로 장시간 유지해 줍니다.  눈물, 땀, 피지에 강한 멀티프루프 맛카라입니다. [This mascara newly includes super long fibers with long-lasting coating, that create super-sized eyelashes that are five times their previous length and, at the same time, cleanly endure without drooping for 24 hours.  Combined with curling setting polymers, without crumpling, with gloss, dizzying eyelashes are maintained for hours.]    

Review: I really like this mascara which does what it says—lengthens and curls.  It applies smoothly and catches all the little eyelashes that are sometimes hard to reach with a too big or clunky-shaped mascara wand.  It definitely gives a fluttery, natural look to my eyelashes and I like how it subtly brings attention to my bottom lashes.  This mascara does not come off with water or soap, and must be removed with makeup remover.   

Also, it was on sale for 15,000 won and came with a free pocket calendar!

With BB creams, you just have to keep trying different kinds to see which one matches your skin tone and which one absorbs well into your skin.

Ariul Berry Vital Recharging Gel Mist with organic acai berry extract
Watsons, Sinchon
Description: Feel the amazing strength of the Super Berry!  Ariul Berry Vital Recharging Gel Mist freshen your skin with its moisture jellies, it provides moisturizing for the dry skin to be shine with vitality. [sic]
Review: Can you tell how much I loved this moisture mist?  I almost used up the whole bottle before I got around to reviewing it.  I got it on sale, and it’s actually currently on sale again.  This mist’s unique feature is the little gel droplets in the liquid.  
When you spray the mist,  you can feel the liquid and little droplets of gel on your skin.  Pat lightly and it immediately absorbs into your skin.  The only thing that sort of put me off when I first started using at home was the strong berry scent (which I hadn’t detected at the store when trying it) but it fades with time or I got used to it.

Ariul Pore Vanish Clay Mask

Watsons, Sinchon

Description: Ariul’s Pore Vanish Line temporarily reduces the appearance of enlarged pores, helping to keep them purified, refined, and smooth.  Rose fruit extracts help to even skin’s texture, refine pores, and regulate sebum production while significantly hydrating the skin and giving its vitality for refreshed and balanced skin.  

Review: I definitely recommend this clay mask.  The packaging is cute and it comes with a spoon to scoop out the clay which helps to keep your fingers and germs out of the pot.  When you spread the clay on your skin, it has a really light, whipped, creamy texture which makes applying it very easy unlike other clay masks that I’ve tried.  I did have to wait a little longer for it to dry because the texture feels a little more wet.  It washes off easily and I was impressed at how clear my skin looked.  

My pores really did vanish but the effect only lasts for about an hour or so.  

This would be perfect for a date night.  Apply the mask about an hour before you need to get ready and put your makeup on.  Wash off.  Moisturize and go on date as is.  Or, immediately after moisturizing, apply makeup on your super clear skin.
