Roseroseshop Kbeauty haul April 2015

Apologies for being absent for quite awhile now…I was dealing with a few changes in my life and just had to take on the hiatus. I was glad, however, that I came home to this! ❤image

My Roseroseshop order finally arrived. It was all superbly packed and labelled perfectly. 🙂

Ordered 22/3/2015
Order shipped 27/3/2015
Received 7/4/2015

All-in-all, it took almost 16 days and communication was great. They actually replied and gave a RM tracking number. 😀

image

Everything was bubble-wrapped and nothing was damaged even after traveling half the globe. 🙂 Can you tell which packet I was most excited to rip apart? 😀

I just had to get these Herb Day cleansing tissue from The Face Shop. They are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Well, not to the level of those Japanese Biore wipes, but these are so affordable and great for sensitive skin.

image

I got my first pack from Beauteque and the rest is history! I have got a huge re-crush on makeup remover wipes since. They are so convenient to have and refreshes your face instantly.

image

These were manufactured this year and lasts all the way till 2017, so I am pretty pleased.

I also just had to get the Skin food cotton pads. Cotton pads all the way from Korea?? Yes, please!

image

I hear good things about it, and I love the embossed design.

Also finally got the OST C20 serum to test out since they were so cheap on RRS! Like the cheapest perhaps? I doubt that it will be fresh…like meh, maybe some old clearance stock or something but…

image

It was manufactured in February 2015!! Gosh thats great 😀

image

I am just finishing up my other vitamin serums so this will be the next in line!

The most exciting part of this haul is perhaps these babies;

image

Yes, 6 different shades of lippies! ❤

image

From top:
[ETUDE HOUSE] Color in Liquid Lips – 3.5g No.PK005 Pink In Dolly
[ETUDE HOUSE] Color in Liquid Lips – 3.5g No.PK001 Pink In Ribbon

[ETUDE HOUSE] Color in Liquid Lips – 3.5g No.PK008 Pink In Funk
[ETUDE HOUSE] Color in Liquid Lips – 3.5g No.PP502 Purple In Friday
[ETUDE HOUSE] Dear My Blooming Lips Talk (Pink Talk) – 3.4g No.PK012 Greed Pink
[ETUDE HOUSE] Dear My Wish Lips Talk – 3.5g No.PK001

image

I absolutely adore the packaging! To-die-for.

image

The first moment I set eyes on their pink range, I knew I had to get it.

image

I also saw this shade (PK001) on Get it Beauty, and was totally blown away as it received such good reviews and was voted the best red lippie in SK for the blind test.

These Color in Liquid lips are quite new as they were just released a few months back. They were always OOS on TTK and I got frustrated so shifted over to RRS. I’m so glad I did urgh…all the wait and no gratification was killing me~ 😛

image

So gorgeous… ❤

image

I’m wearing each every day. Perhaps a full Etude House lip review coming up next? 🙂

And of course, samples!!~ I’m happy with these. Some are new and I looove to try the Cosrx one.

image

My haul isn’t super deluxe but I love every bit of it. The shipping is slightly steeper than TTK’s ladder (there is a jump between $12-18) but all-in-all, it is well worth it. RRS has such a competitive pricing now that some sites are raising their prices, but I wish it was easier to navigate….. a button to sort out new products and possibly better tab system would have gotten me shopping there like 24/7.

image

The RRS haul is a winner and I can’t wait to shop with them again~ 🙂

Nep, not sponsored. 😛

Memebox Superbox #52 Thumbs Up! -thoughts~

image

The Superbox #52 Thumbs Up! memebox is successful box for obvious reasons (that you will read in a little).

The box was released a few months back and I have been beating myself up for not grabbing it. However, it came back on restock and I had to snag one. Superboxes are typically a little more expensive than normal ones (although they ameliorated this difference). I paid $32 with a $6.99 shipping fee but it is totally worth the next product I’m about to introduce.

The Miguhara B.P. cream (30ml, $37) is a cult fav. It is a primer and BB cream that covers like magic and yet feels like light velvet on the skin. What is in this stuff??! Well, these.

image

I like the b.p. cream alot. In fact, I am contemplating on breaking my emergency piggy bank just to get another. It is definitely a HG for me because I can just run out with this on my face look like I have the most perfect complexion. Sobs (of joy). 🙂

image

Be warned though, the b.p. cream might not be for everybody. It does contain mineral oils and stuff which may irritate some sensitive skin (as with most primers anyways), but I have not gotten any adverse reaction from this. I did read on some beauty boards that the primer seems to cake and look powder-ish for some people.

I’m glad to have discovered another jewel. Now if only Miguhara would ship worldwide or sell it for cheaper… 😦

The next product did receive a mixed reaction: the O& Soap berry cleanser (100ml, $13) seems to be a hit or miss. Mine spilled in the box and thankfully did not cause much damage. The back of this packaging was ruined so I emailed Memebox and they offered a little compensation so I shall only post this (better) photo.

image

I reckon I’d have to use it now that it has leaked. The soap smells pretty nice. I agree it can be drying to people who already have dry skin. My advice would be to cleanse with cool water and use a good moisturizer after. 🙂

The Real Beauty Serum (50ml, $22) was selected randomly from 3 other options, and I think I got the D. Bouncy Firming serum. I have a feeling this one is meant for anti-aging.

image

The product claims to have various all-natural ingredients in them and are gentle + nourishing to the skin.

Herbclinic Rice Bran Powder (80g, $10) makes this box an interesting one. I recall that we had not have a lot of mix-to-use mask packs back in the day. This pack contains 100% rice bran powder that delivers intense nourishment.

image

It’s advised to mix this with milk to create the pack. Actually typing this makes me feel more inclined to try it. I’ll decide if I should. 🙂

The 3D Hope Girl Blusher 01 Sexy Rose (5g, $18) is a cool blusher with a sponge attached to it. It also contains allantoin and vit E.

image

Next up is the Rivercowe Sebum Control Convenient compact (8g, $17) perfect for those who needs oil control. I have not tried this myself so I cannot comment on the effectiveness, but the card describes this as “instantly mattifying for up to 8 hours, revealing a natural, flawless complexion with zero shine all day long.”

image

It also shows some of the ingredients upfront. Thyme, Sage, Mint and Chamomile is interesting to have in a compact powder for sure! 😛

The last product I have tried: Kocostar Nail Therapy (4g x 2, $7) are not bad for its novelty. I wouldn’t do them regularly, because I always need to work with my hands and these finger masks are a bit of a hassle. I also don’t think they perform any better as compared to a hand cream.

image

These will be off as free gifts in my coming destash project.

The box contains legit 7 full-sized items. I absolutely love this box! I mean, I love the Miguhara and thinks it alone makes up for the whole box. ❤ I would repurchase this again if it ever comes back on stock lol.

Memebox Global #14 -this one is golden!

image

It is like a feast for the eyes when I opened up my Memebox 14. From the first glance, it is jam-packed and the info card gave away what treasures it contain inside.  I saw spoilers on social media before receiving the Memebox 14, but it definitely feels different to have in your hands.

❤ ❤ ❤

image

I quickly went through and unboxed (or un-bubble wrapped) everything. The colors are so vibrant in this memebox. Love!

I especially love the Golden Time Vita Capsule Essence from Recipe by Nature (40ml, $42). It looks gorgeous under the sunlight.

image

True to it’s name, the Vita Capsule radiates like golden globules and promises to deliver nourishment to the skin on top of it’s brightening effects.

image

I have in fact tried this myself, and found it to be similar to some lighter facial oils. It is, in fact, a mix between essence and oil. It suggests to apply a toner beforehand and dab a generous amount all over the face— but I don’t agree that we should apply it generously unless we don’t mind looking like a wok all day.

The essence absorbs well, leaving the skin all supple and dewy. It smells like mandarin oranges too (yum!). I’d happily recruit this into my morning routine.

pssst…it is only $14 on the Memeshop!

Sua Young is the same brand name we have seen (the Berristure from Mask Box 4) and this time I get to try their makeup: Sua Young Mineral Essence In Liquid Foundation SPF33 PA+++ ($5.66, 5g). 

image

It is a cute miniature of some mid-range foundation in the market. I love this packaging more than the few other tube ones.

image

I have not given this a shot. But I will, soon.

Out of the 3 VOVs (Volume/Waterproof mascara/ liner), I have gotten the one I wanted most; VOV Black Good-bye Smudge Waterproof Mascara (9g, $16). 

image

It reminds me of the Maybelline mascaras.

The brand is pretty popular for their makeup in Korea. Having purchased their brightener, I would say this is a great product to try. My current favourite is the Imju Fiberwig Mascara and I would like to see how this will match up.

The brand, a:t Fox is not unknown to the memefans. We have received a couple of products from them including the Toc water satchets and cute cupcakes trio.

image

I have to admit I am a closet blusher lover. I claim to not like makeup, but I want a blusher so bad lately. And lucky I was as this Fantasy Holic Lip & Cheek Designer Pencil ($7) came with my memebox! It is dual functional as the name suggests and claims to provide matte, non-clumping finish.

The color reminds me of the cheek blush I used to have that came with my Holika Holika Peach girl BB cream. Adore~

Having received a whole tin (5x) of eyeliners from Beauty People in the Cute Wishlist memebox previously, I was less ecstatic to have gotten this Miss 100 Super Waterproof Gel Liner Auto Pencil in Glimmer Bronze (0.5g, $38). Can you believe this is $38?! Oh memebox… 

image

It does seem really solid. I appreciate a liner that I do not need to sharpen because I feel like I am wasting some when I do.

image

Silly me forgotten a swatch shot… but I gotta say the color payoff is fantastic and it looks very much like my UD 24/7 bronze pencils. The downside: only a tad smudge-able imho.

These twins, the Shower Mate Perfume de Whip Body Wash- Red Fantasy and Pure White blossom (50ml ea, $4) features Marilyn Monroe. I love the idea of a whip-cream like bubble wash with fruity and sweet floral scents.

image

Heard only good things about them, so I will definitely give it a go after my current 93718732x body gels runs out.

A whole set of Kocostar products ($20) was thrown into the box and they include;
1x  Ggongji Hair Pack 
1x Face Spot Mirror Patch
1x Finger Nail Pack
1x Foot Peeling Pack

image

A truly head-to-toe experience package!

image

image

Adore the mirror included in this face spot pack. It might be an alternative to my 3M acne patches, and I can bring these traveling in winter!

image

My previous nail packs from Kocostar was in a baby pink packaging. Those were just so-so. My hopes are not high for nail packs and I prefer cuticle oils/ hand creams. This will probably go to a friend.

image

Never have I seen a “ponytail” pack in my life. I think this will be used on my spa day! Don’t mind the idea of longing around and being a couch potato with this on~

image

I love trying foot peeling masks! My last ones were… intriguing, I have to say. My soles are worn from all the walking during the summer holidays.

Next up are the beautifully illustrated packs of masks from Sally’s Box ($14);
1 x Love Recipe Apple Mask (20ml)
1x Delight Ceramide Hydrogel Mask (25g)
1x Delight Collagen Hydrogel Mask (25g)
1x Delight Pathenol Hydrogel Mask (25g)

image

And we girls are all suckers for packaging, admit it. These look good even before I try them out, and I have tested a handful of great hydrogel masks so I can’t wait!

image image image image

My mask reviews will come late as my collection is growing at an unstoppable pace. I have sleeping and mud packs to use on top of sheet masks. Phew!

Thats all 15 products in the Memebox #14!
It is definitely one of the best Memeboxes I have received to date, and one which I will actually use most of.

image

The Memevalue of this box is around $150, and I personally value it at around $80. It is therefore still a high-valued box considering I only forked out $23 + $6.99 shipping for it. (Not to mention I did use a couple of memepoints and promo code!)

I strongly recommend getting the global Memeboxes! The #17-19 boxes are still available for grabs and you get $2 for signing up today.

You may also find all the Memeboxes with it’s shipping date on this memebox-dedicated page and more bonuses/information. I will update with September coupon codes once I get them.

At the meantime, happy memeshopping!
