ISQUEEN Ultramicro Aqua

I have been focusing a bit on skincare since my baby was born and felt I had used this product enough to be able to share it with you. ISQUEEN Ultramicro Aqua is a very like gel cream type moisturiser, It is so light that generally I use it as a serum underneath a richer moisturiser but then my skin is a bit dry at the moment. If you had oily skin this would be fine on it's own.

I really like this product. It feels light and fresh without an overpowering scent and I think it really has improved my skins moisture levels by using it as a serum. I love that it comes in a pump bottle so I am not dipping my fingers into a pot of cream (I hate doing that!) The bottle is frosted glass and looks really nice. I purchased this from sasa.com and would definitely buy another bottle when this one runs out.

Cosline Flower Cheek Blush

Another blush from my Gmarket blush haul. This time it's Cosline Flower Cheek in '2' Barbie Doll Pink. When I opened the packaging I thought that this blush was going to be way to strong for my pale skin but after trying it was pleasantly suprised. The colour is easy to apply lightly for a pretty flush or can be built up if your needing a bit more.

VOV Showcase Ball on Cheek

By now you are probably picking up that I am a bit of a fan of the Korean brand VOV. They make some really great products and by shopping on Gmarket.co.kr you can pick them up for a fantastic price. The Showcase line of products is one of the newer things from VOV. I only have this one product but they have other things as well. I got the Showcase Ball on Cheek in '2' which gives a really nice sheer champagne coloured glow. Please note the container is pretty small - the pictures are a bit deceiving.

Caracosa Marble Blusher

Here are a couple more blushes from my Gmarket haul. I purchased the colours 102 & 106. I really like both of these they give a lovely wash of glowing colour that is in my opinion nicer then Mac MSF's which can be glittery.

VOV Casltedew Diacut Eyes Palette M601

This palette is a great combination of neutral colours. The quality of the shadows is quite good and they apply quite smoothly leaving a silky shimmery finish.

The packaging is really pretty and the amount of each colour in the pan is quite decent. I think I paid around $15 for this palette and I would definitely say it is worth the money. This is the first Diacut Palette that I have purchased and I will seriously consider getting some of the other colours as well.

I wanted to share with you one of my very favourite products ever - VOV Castledew Oversetting Gloss. I love these glosses so much. They come in a very large range of colours, are really comfortable to wear, last a decent amount of time and the packaging is very pretty.

Prorance Sunny Glam Blusher


I received another Gmarket parcel the other day filled with mostly blushes. I will post the others as I get the time. The first one I am going to show you is one of my favourites of the bunch - Prorance Sunny Glam Blusher in the colour '2'. It is a lovely peachy pink shimmery blush with a nice fine texture and sheer finish. It looks really nice on my very pale skin. The packaging is very sturdy and looks very pretty.

And a swatch -
