East VS West: Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid VS CosRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be comparing the Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid and the CosRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid! Both of these products are liquid BHA exfoliants, and I decided to try out each of these because I didn't like the wastage that the pre soaked pads had. For the CosRX I was unable to source a proper bottle, so I got 10 sample sachets instead which allowed me to test this product over one month (3 applications in each sample).

Review: Benefit Hydrating Tinted Lip Balm

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Benefit Hydrating Tinted Lip Balm! I have the mini versions of these lip balms because I somehow collected them all over a year when purchasing other products from Benefit. A tinted lip balm worth $34NZD was not on my "to buy" list, but surprisingly enough I do quite enjoy using them!

Store Review: Nashi Lab

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about my shopping experience with Nashi Lab! Nashi Lab was recently advertised to me via Facebook as a New Zealand based Korean Beauty store, and although NZ based stores are usually  a little more expensive and limited in terms of product range, it's great to support them when you can!


Website Practicality
There are a few aspects that I like about the Nashi Lab website, and a few that could use some improvement. The biggest improvement for me would be adding Paypal as a payment option. The reason being is that I generally don't carry my credit card with me, and am quite lazy about getting up and getting it. It also helps me to track purchases so I would really like a Paypal option. There is also no login for this site, which means that if you delete your emails, there is no way to track your purchases through a loyalty on their site, and of course no loyalty rewards in place for regular shoppers. However, the website is very aesthetically pleasing and easy to browse, they have a nice selection of cult faves as well as some great brands that are quite hard to find elsewhere in NZ such as Beauty of Joseon, Cremorlab and Make Pr:em.
Oh. I lied, turns out you can make an account and I might actually be blind. I'm not sure why it didn't prompt me to create a log in or give me the option to create an account through the check out process, I'm annoyed at myself as well as the website for not prompting me to make a log in. But mostly annoyed at my blindness/stupidity. Ugh.

Review: Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner! I picked up this toner recently because I had tried a couple of samples sachets and it seemed to hydrate my skin really nicely which is really what I want in a toner!

Fail or Holy Grail Review: AzClear Action

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about my Holy Grail Acne treatment, AZ Clear Action! This medicated lotion is available over the counter in New Zealand and Australia, however most international shoppers won't be able to get this item to their country (which is how I feel like 85% of the time when I can't get things sent to NZ, welcome) but never fear, the main ingredient of this product is Azeliac Acid, so if you can't get this one there are a couple of others you can use.

Review: Kate Secret Skin Maker Zero in 00

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Kate Secret Skin Maker Zero in 00! I bought this because swatches showed the shade 00 to be super pale and lighter than MAC NC15 which sounded ideal since I wear MAC NC10! It was pretty inexpensive at $15USD so I thought it was well worth trying!

Store Review: Yesstyle

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about my shopping experience with Yesstyle! I haven't actually shopped with Yesstyle for quite a while now, but I noticed that they had one of the Benton Essences for a super duper cheap price, so I was tempted into a purchase with them!


Website Practicality
Yesstyle is a very practical website to browse, it's easy to find everything I want and the search bar works really well. I already had an account, but I still found it easy to find the items I want, add them to my cart and check out.

Provided for Review: I'm From Magnolia Wake Essence

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the I'm From Magnolia Wake Essence! This Essence wasn't technically sent to me for review, but Wishtrend offers coupons to try out (and obviously promote) new items for only the price of the postage. This gives me the freedom to talk about products I like and ignore the products that either are not interesting, not suited for my skin, or just don't work for me. Since I liked the Ginseng Serum from the same brand so much, I really wanted to try out more from the line!

Review: Etude House Berry Delicious Cream Blush

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Etude House Berry Delicious Cream Blush! I have three shades, though on Etude House's website they have five shades! No other store seems to sell the other two shades and I only just noticed the other shades right at I'm writing this so it's just a little bit too bad.

Review: Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips Talk Cream

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips Talk Cream! I previously talked about the Matte version of these lipsticks and I didn't really enjoy the colours or the formula, so I was hoping that the cream would be better!

Review: Château Labiotte Wine Lip Tint

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Château Labiotte Wine Lip Tints! These super cute wine shaped lip tints were very tempting for me because I really like cute and unusual packaging, but I also really liked the look of the shades too! I also thought these would make great gifts too so they are well worth the review.

Review: Etude House Dear Darling Water Tint

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Etude House Dear Darling Water Tints! I bought these a little while ago because they were super duper cheap ($2.75 each!!) however they slipped to the bottom of the review pile because I bought more interesting items!

Review: It's Skin Babyface Creamy Lip Liner

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the It's Skin Babyface Creamy Lip Liner! These lip liners were super duper cheap and came in pretty cute colour, so I decided to try them out!

Review: Etude House Dear Darling Water Gel Tint (Limited Edition Popsicle Packaging)

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the ultra cute Etude House Dear Darling Water Gel Tint in the summer limited edition Popsicle packaging! As soon as I saw the release for these I knew I had to have them, not only is the packaging adorable, the colours are really pretty and more unique than Etude House usually releases. Generally they release bright orange, bright pink and a red, but this time they have a beautiful dusty pink, a deep vampy red and a gorgeous dusty peach.

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about some skincare from Eleven Huesday! This skincare was kindly sent to me for review by Korean Kiwi Beauty who have recently started stocking this brand and are offering 25% off Eleven Huesday during the month of August! KKB sent me a full sized serum, a deluxe mini toner and a sample set of the Ultra Deep Fluids to try out!

Review: It's Skin Babyface Petit Blusher

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the It's Skin Babyface Petit Blushers! I have previously tried the Babyface BB Creams as well as the Finish Beams, so I thought it would be fitting to try out the rest of the Babyface range since it is all so cute!

Store Review: Vuty Designs

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about my shopping experience with Vuty Design! Vuty Design is based in Korea and sells Korean products for a pretty competitive price!

Website Practicality
Vuty Design has a very interesting website, it's very easy to navigate, you can search for specific products, search by brand, or type of product. The website aesthetic isn't for me, I think the font of the brand annoys me a little and I'm not sure why, it just doesn't look like a serious website so I underestimated how good their prices were. It was easy to create an account, fill my cart and check out.

Review: Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask! I picked up this mask because I am starting to get a couple of pesky pimples, and I was hoping this mask would help to dry out any excess sebum!

Fail or Holy Grail Review: Etude House Face Blur Primer

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Etude House Face Blur Primer! After a little research I found out that instead of buying the Etude House Beauty Shot Face Blur Primer like I had intended, I actually bought the one without the Beauty Shot aspect. Sadly, this primer didn't work out for me for multiple reasons, but I still want to try out the Beauty Shot primer because I hear really good things about it!

Review: Laneige BB Cushion Whitening

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Laneige BB Cushion Whitening in the shade 11! I picked up this cushion because I heard that the shade 11 was great for pale skin, and for once I am not disappointed!

Store Review: Althea

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about my shopping experience with Althea! I actually accidentally spent a lot of time shopping the Malaysian site because that's the first website that comes up when you google Althea. However I later found the US site which is the one that lets you actually ship internationally. Duh.


Website Practicality
I found Althea's website quite aesthetically pleasing and easy to navigate. It was very easy to create an account, fill my cart and checkout.

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Beauteque June Mask Maven and BB Bag! This months theme was Beaches, so there was a lot of products that would be great for Princesses during summer, however it is the middle of winter here in New Zealand so some of the products were a miss for me!

Review: Stylenanda 3CE Back To Baby Glow Beam

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Stylenanda 3CE Back To Baby Glow Beams! I saw a Youtuber using this product (and I was sure it was Pony, but was actually U:na!) and I just loved the look it gave her, so I decided to pick up both colours of this hydrating primer!

East VS West: Tony Moly Luminous Goddess Aura Crystal Light VS Benefit Beams

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Tony Moly Luminous Goddess Aura Crystal Light VS Benefit Beams! I have the Benefit High Beam and Sun Beam because the Dandelion Beam wasn't sold in NZ when I purchased everything.

Provided for Review: Korean Kiwi Beauty Box

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the brand new New Zealand based sheet mask subscription box from Korean Kiwi Beauty! I have worked with Korean Kiwi Beauty before, and when they told me they were creating a subscription service I was so excited because there are only a couple of sheet mask subscription boxes that actually ship to poor little New Zealand!

Review: Peripera Airy Ink Velvet

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Peripera Airy Ink Velvet range! I've previously tried the Peripera Ink the Velvet (SS17 range) which I really loved, so when I saw that they had come out with a lightweight version of the Velvet line I had to try them!

Store Review: Adam Beauty

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about my shopping experience with Adam Beauty! Adam Beauty is a Hong Kong based beauty store that stocks a great range of Japanese Beauty products as well as some European and Korean brands. I've avoided shopping there so far because the website is SO confusing to use and quite frankly seemed unsafe, but I decided to give it a go because it had the mascara I wanted.


Website Practicality
The website is ... difficult to navigate. It takes quite a lot of guesswork because some of the brands are only under parent company names (like Heroine make is under the parent brand Isehan) and the search bar isn't very good. Basically I start off in the Japan Brand sidebar and then choose the parent company. From then, I can tab across the sub brands down the left side, and the across the top for the basic type of make up. The product selection will appear as a little scrolling bar to the left, and you can click a type of product and choose a shade from within there. It's a bizarre layout. There is also no way to create an account, which seems majorly dodgy! However you can pay through Paypal which offers a little safety. It is easy to add items to the cart, but if you want to remove them you have to zero out the quantity. It's annoying to browse for sure.

Review: Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence! I bought this recently because I had tried a sample sachet previously and really liked it, however with the full size bottle I'm not so sure I feel the same way!

Fail or Holy Grail Review: Petitfee Black Pearl and Gold Hydrogel Eye & Spot Patch

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Petitfee Black Pearl and Gold Hydrogel Eye & Spot Patch! I picked these up sometime last year (so bad, I know!) because I really liked the Gold and Snail version which is a Holy Grail for me! However, these ones turned out to be a fail for me.

Provided for Review: Etude House Dear Darling Water Gel Tint

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Etude House Dear Darling Water Gel Tints! There are 14 shades in this collection, and this is the largest collection I've reviewed in one post, so this is going to be a long one! These tints were kindly provided for review by W2Beauty.

Review: Klairs Mochi BB Cushion

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Klairs Mochi BB Cushion! This cushion was another highly recommended product that I was hesitant to try because it only comes in one shade, which is not generally a shade that is good for pale skin.

Review: Etude House Play 101 Stick Foundation

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Etude House Play 101 Stick Foundation! This foundation came out quite a while ago and I never got around to trying it, but I was really interested in it because it seemed like a good product for travel!

Review: CLIO Kill Cover Airwear Powder Foundation

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the CLIO Kill Cover Airwear Powder Foundation! This is my first CLIO product, and I was very intrigued by the brand in general, but also their fairly small colour ranges!

Review: Holika Holika Covermazing Superfit Founstick

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Holika Holika Covermazing Superfit Founstick! I have the lightest shade which is 01 Warm Ivory, and I bought this product because the name really intrigued me, like they've merged 6 names into 3 and it also has a brush on the other end which could potentially make it awesome for travel!
