I just came back from Seoul, Korea, recently and I’m still wishing I was back in the cold, with occasional snow while walking down the shopping streets of Garosu-gil, Hongdae and Myeongdong.
It’s 25 years into my life and it was my virgin visit to the popular travel destination, South Korea, to attend a K-Beauty conference – Made in Korea (MIK) 2017 – courtesy of MyFatPocket. It was my first time travelling with MFP’s Editor, Xinyi (@xinyicyndisoh) too. This short trip was a rather fruitful one as I got acquainted with many K-Beauty brands that are looking to expand to our tiny little red dot, ate many local dishes and bought even more makeup!
Before all the beauty reviews continue to populate Paradeoflove, I just want to pen down some of the interesting things I encountered in this metropolitan city, including beauty recommendations, food I’ve tried and some of the Instagram-worthy spots for your OOTDs in your next trip.
Just when you thought a new cushion compact has been launched, think again! With the emergence of a new selfie generation, it’s no wonder Casio is taking its selfie cameras to a whole new level. Behold the Casio TR Mini-series – TR-M11 – a clamshell selfie camera shaped just like a mirror compact!
I couldn’t be happier playing with the TR-M11. Owning this mini selfie cam is like having a personal beauty studio with you that takes care of all your selfies from day to night.
I’m dreaming of a GREEN CHRISTMAS. Just like the ones I used to know. Where the MAKEUP glisten, and JUNKIES listen. To hear NEW (makeup) DROPS in the snow~
It’s already December and I can’t wait for Christmas! This is the time where we empty our pockets because ALL the brands are coming out with their Christmas collections. Here’s bringing you K-Beauty Innisfree’s holiday drop – the Green Christmas 2017 Collection.
The collection consists of many gorgeous products, including a set of three DIY String Art Sets which I absolutely love!
With holiday decorations up on the streets, it’s only November but we’re feeling the festivities already! For all you K-Beauty lovers, rejoice! LANEIGE is here to bring you a dose of hydration to prep your skin for its pop of colour – all to get you party-ready!
LANEIGE “Delights, Pop!” Holiday Makeup Collection consists of a dazzling eyeshadow quad, a gorgeously packaged BB Cushion Whitening, 2 new shades from the Two Tone Tint Lip Bar and a new cushion blusher!
Flower-based skincare, who’s in? I’m definitely in! With the launch of floral-based Korean beauty brand, Mamonde, we’re once again spoilt for choice when it comes to Korean skincare. As you might have figured out by now, Mamonde, prides itself to nurture and enhance your natural beauty through the invigorating properties of flowers. The brand even has a real flower garden in Osan, located at the south of Seoul, where the key blooms like hibiscus, camellia, magnolia, honeysuckle and lotus are carefully-cultivated under expert botanists.
I’ve always been a believer of having flowers in skincare products, especially rose, because these beautiful works of nature actually provide nourishment and healing to our skin. In this post, I will share with you some of the skincare products I’ve been trying from Mamonde and hopefully you’ll find them useful for your skin too!
