Yeondukong Fix Lip in #01 Red Orange ($12)
I love the cute packaging! It’s a lipstick + tint balm + primer all in one.
“This super pigmented 3-in-1 is pigmented like a lipstick, moisturizing like a tint balm, and evens out dry, patchy lips like a primer. It gives a great color payoff that makes the lips naturally plump and pretty. Formulated with mango, grapeseed, apple oil, and honey extracts to nourish and moisturize the lips. Its long-lasting formula allows the color to stay intact for up to 12 hours.”
How to use:
Natural Smudging Lip (Gradient Lips): On bare lips, apply Yeondukong’s Fix Lip onto the center area and blend outwards to achieve a fading effect.
Full Color Point Lip: On bare lips, apply Yeondukong’s Fix Lip all over the lips. Add a layer until desired color is achieved
The actual shape of this product really surprised me! It’s awesomely unique and I think it really helps in the application – especially if you want to try out that natural smudging lip effect.
Quick swatch! The color is definitely very vibrant – so if you’re not comfortable with bright lip colors, then apply a light layer and smudge. The lasting power on this is crazy long. I put on a very light layer around 10 in the morning and it was still there at midnight that same day, only slightly faded. If you’re looking for a long-lasting lip color, this is your product!
I would totally buy this in a lighter, more neutral shade so that I could add just a little bit of color to my lips without going over the top. XD It would be perfect too, because no re-application is needed so you could just apply in the morning and it’ll last all day.
Cosrx Blackhead Silk Fingerballs ($5)
If you think they look like silk cocoons, it’s because these are made from silk! Fun story detour time: we had silk worms as class pets at my elementary school and it was so cool to feed them mulberry leaves. XD They did poop everywhere on the newspaper-lined boxes but they were so soft to the touch and fun to let crawl on your hands because they had little suction-cup like feet.
There are 12 in each package. (only 11 pictured here because I took one out to try!)
What it is: A finger ball made of 100% natural silk. Used to massage and gently exfoliate the skin to reveal healthy, youthful skin.
Closer. The silk ball itself is actually really hard when you first touch it, but the surface isn’t rough or abrasive.
Where you would place your finger.
How to use: Soak a finger ball in warm water 2-3 min then slip the soft finger ball on. Intensively massage on areas that suffer from blackheads then cleanse and pat dry.
I absolutely LOVED this! It’s really easy to use and not super abrasive. Plus it’s really fun to wear a silk cocoon ball on your finger to try and exfoliate the skin on your face. XD I tried this out and I have to say, it felt like my skin was smoother afterward. I don’t know if it will really help with blackheads because I haven’t used it long enough to see the effects, but for short term – my skin definitely feels nicer after just two tries. The best thing is that this product is super cheap (only $5!) so if you run out, you can buy more without feeling like you’re spending too much money. 😉
