If there's one skincare item that I must bring during travel, it would be a sleeping mask. Even better, a sleeping mask that's already packed in small container that can last 2 to 3 times of usage so I don't have to bring the full-sized or huge tub with me. I've had one or two products from Laneige and Etude House respectively but I always love to try new ones but this time, I've received 5 or 6 of these after making purchase at local Innisfree store and after the first usage, I went back to the store to get some more.

Hello, lovelies~ How's your weekend so far? I've received some pretty good news today but there's a part of me that don't take the news that well as I'll be spending less time blogging~ oh, well. Time to put down my comics and put on some adult pants. haha bad metaphor~
Anyway, today I'm gonna talk about the products that I emptied out i.e. finished for the past 3 to 4 months. The last time I did an Empties post was last October and I skipped December last year as I didn't finish any of my skincare products as I bought some other products and put on hold on some other things~ haha typical me!

As I learn about makeup, it's quite interesting to know that behind all those flawless foundation coverage, there are some products known to help with that other than your brush technique, or mostly just high-end foundation.
The product in this category are known as base which works as your "foundation" to your foundation. It's sometimes the same as primers but most of the time it's a multi-tasking product that's taking care of your skin issues such as uneven skin tone, redness, dullness, etc.
As I feel like my skin is a bit dull and uneven recently, I went on a research of what kind of base available in the Korean market and then I realized that I actually have not one but three base products in my beauty stash and all of them are from Etude House.

Yes! Not only the regular green tea that you're usually served at Japanese restaurants but also my selection of beauty products that are based on green tea extracts.

I've been loving eye makeup for the past few months and one thing that I needed the most other than eye makeup brushes is indeed an eye primer.
The main reason is to make eye makeup last even longer, not to crease or disappear after few hours. There are several types of eye primer, some are transparent, some with a little colour but still doesn't show on your lids, some are highly pigmented to amp up the colour of the eyeshadow that you want to layer it with while some have skin-like colour to really smooth out or blur your eyelid lines and imperfections. Yes, these are the ones you can get in Urban Decay Primer Potions which I got as samples with a purchase of their Naked Smoky palette. I love them all but almost RM100 for an eye primer that can only be used for 6 months? I definitely need an alternative to that especially I'm still practicing where lots of applying and removing eye makeups are happening as I try to get my desired blend of shadows.
As I only been into makeup starting last year, I haven't really made my research on the best products for Korean makeup as I've been only making myself a frequent visitor to Sephora. Who doesn't love swatching makeup there?
So please don't be surprised as I only discovered this eye primer via one of my favourite YouTuber, meejmuse (who put this product with a Holy Grail status) like the end of last year and got my hands on it via a personal shopper in Seoul - not that this wasn't sold locally but I was getting some other stuffs as well.

Hello, beautiful people! Enjoying your weekend? This weekend is going to be all about recovery i.e. self-spa and anything me-time. Been stressing a lot lately so I do need to let some steam off!
Anyway, have you join any subreddit community on Reddit.com before? I actually heard about this beauty community from +tarapapapapa for the first time back in 2014 I think, around the time when I was just few months writing posts in here. Totally clueless at the time and I was really overwhelmed by course works and whatnot, I only checked out this beauty community quite recently.

I honestly didn't care for my eyelashes not until 2 years ago when suddenly a friend of mine noticed that my lashes are short and handed me a Maybelline mascara and since then, I always put on mascara whenever I put on my makeup.
So far, I've tried several number of mascaras from Korean brand like Etude House and TheFaceShop while several other from Western brand like Maybelline, Benefit, and Urban Decay. What I look for the most in a mascara is lengthening but volumising and curling are welcome too. Of course, not all mascara comes with the three things I want so this is where these 2 products I discovered from Etude House come in.
