Top 5 Korean Beauty Standards ft Indian Beauty Standards

It's been long time that I have posted about Korean Makeup Trends after the very famous 3 popular Korean Makeup Trends 2013
I am back again with some interesting comparison between Indian beauty standards and Korean beauty standards.

1. The Eyes

India:
I have observed that Indians prefer natural eye color or we use some colored contact lenses. But definitely not the circle lens.

Korea:
I do not see a single K-Pop artist or an actress sporting the natural contact lenses. All they want is the circle lens. I actually love their eyes more when they wear the circle lens. If the circle lens is colored, then it is a huge plus.

Holika Holika Sand Nails in 06 Review and Swatches

Hey Girls..you know how much I love the Korean Makeup and Skincare, I am slowly shifting my basic needs to the Korean brands. Recently I found love in nail paints and I really wanted to try the texture ones. There are many brands which recently launched their own textured nail paints but they not really impressed me.May be because they didn't have many colours or the glitters(which I didn't want in my textured paint). I knew my requirement was clear. I wanted a light shade and a normal paint with no chunks of glitter. When I ran out of my foot masks,I wanted to shop for them and suddenly I found this textured nail paint from the brand "Holika Holika"

Holika Holika Baby Silky Hand Mask Sheet Review and Samples I got from Jolse.com


Hey people
I am super excited to show this product to you. I would like to dedicate this post to all the women out there who work real hard to satisfy each and every little person in her house. I don't know about the world but Indian women have too much work in kitchen and they can spend entire day in the daily household chores. It is more like their duty and there is no chance of skipping it.
Well when we get to talk about the work in kitchen, no part of the body is damaged like the hands. Our hands are prone to have become rough and dry.
Now that we modern women never care much about the hands by spending the valuable time and money in hand spa, We have a Korean brand to offer us the same sort of pampering right in our home!
You might have already seen the picture of my hands after using this mask on Instagram and Facebook.
Excited enough to know what is the product ?

3 Popular Korean Makeup and Beauty Trends that Ruled 2013


Hey people
I am back again with my Korean Obsession Post. I have always loved their flawless skin and glowy makeup. Now that I researched on this so much that I can tell you what was a hit and a miss in 2013 in the Korean Makeup. They prefer a natural look which means no loud lipsticks or no extravagant eyes (Okay, please exclude the Kpop girls under this section) KPOP girls are more into flashy eye makeup and not so crazy lipcolors. The lipsticks I have seen them wearing is the soft pinks and corals the most. Apart from very few who prefer wearing bright neons and reds.
Now coming the popular trends that prevailed in the Korean Makeup world for the year 2013 are as follows.
1. Puppy eyes
Yeah yeah.. now you must be wondering what it is all about. We Indians looove dramatic application of kohl or kajal. The winged eyeliner was a popular trend in 80's and now it came back and took us all by storm. We now can not think of anything else but the wing..when it comes to the eye liner. (I am one crazy who is still struggling to get a wing)
Okay, now coming back to the puppy eyes, it is a technique that creates the wing downwards or straight but not angular. It is made slightly thick to enhance the shape of the eye.

Cosmetic-love.com 's Karadium Makeup Remover Pen - Review and Swatch


Hey people.. Happy Monday 

By the title you could have guessed that this is a product review and I felt it has been really long that I kept particular product review pending.

To start off, you know how much I love Korean cosmetics and cosmetic-love has been real generous in sending out their new launches to me. Well, if you are wondering on what they sent me check the package of goodies here

When I saw them, this product just caught my eyes,lips everything lol that is because I could read the name and when it said Makeup Remover Pen, I was excited to try it out as I am super good at applying liquid eye liner. I have tried enough to apply a winged eye liner which I feel impossible without this. I scribble the liner on my eye lid and then clear the mess out to form the wing using this pen.

Read the review of the other products they sent me here

Hey people
How was the new year and how did you celebrate it ? Today I would like to write a review on a popular Korean brand  "3 Concept Eyes"
I picked up the Lip gloss from this brand and here goes my rants about the product.
3 Concept Eyes - A Korean Makeup- Lip Gloss-Review, Swatches
About the brand:
3 Concept Eyes is a Korean makeup brand started up as a small sector but later grew into the professional firm which has the amazing lipsticks in its kitty. The best product of the brand is the 3 Concept Lip/Eye pigment. The pigment can be used as a lip color, eye shadow and the blush. These come in great colors including white,yellow etc. These are meant to be mixed with other pigments in order to achieve the desired shade. These are the Korean version of the popular Lip Tars.

Where to buy Korean Cosmetics and Skincare Online-India

Hey people
I know many of you must be wondering why this post now, but after using some Korean skincare products I just fell in love with them. I am a dusky girl so, I don't go much towards their BB creams, though the pink skin79(reviewed here) also check my KOREAN Products REVIEWS HERE is absolutely a boon to my skin this winter. Apart from that, I have used their masks and creams which did wonders to my skin. Their hair masks are amazing. I am planning to place a super big order in the coming month :) and that's going to be my treat for New year :D
Anyway coming to the post,
Being a KDRAMA Addict, I had a chance to check the Korean Culture which includes their food habits and skincare which made me search vigorously for a super website that could get me my most desired Korean stuff to my doorstep.
Here is my list of the websites/ebay stores that are pretty reliable and genuine.
Recently, a Korean skincare brand, "Innisfree" launched a store in New Delhi and it happens to be the only store in India. I envy you, girls living in Delhi.

cosmetic-love.com-Karadium Hand Creams in Cherry Blossom and Peach-Review,Swatches


Hey people
How is the week going?
I see too many skincare posts these days and it makes me realize how cold it is out there. Winter makes the skin so lifeless and scaly. I always thought mine was oily skin but then this year winter made me realize that mine is in fact combination skin type. I had my skin getting super dry all the time. I had to take regular oil massages to get rid of the flaking and dry skin. Now I am doing it at home on weekends.
Well, we can work with oil on a holiday but ever wonder what can happen if we go out with it? Creepy eh.
That is when all these body butters,moisturizers came into existance.
Talking about the body lotions, we kind of worry about the arms,fore arms and that's it. Not many take proper care of their fingers or palms. I am pretty sure about this because I am one among those lazy girls who frequently ignore to moisturize the palms.
When I got to know that there are hand creams I was surprised and excited because my fingers are always dry and that make them look masculine err
You all know that I have been sent a gift box by cosmetic-love.com
You can read my post here
Karadium Hand Cream #1 Peach #2 Cherry Blossom
This post is about the review of these beauties.
Price and Quantity:
It is of 40gms and I couldn't find the price of this product as it is not yet launched officially.

Skin79 Super Plus BB Creams - All 3 BB Creams Comparison with Swatches and Review - Korean SkinCare


Hey people
You know the drastic transformations I'm going through. Firstly a tomboy, then a kid, then girl who likes lip gloss, then the girl started to like lipsticks now it reached the peaks and now
This girl turned into a huge Korean Skin Care fan and ever since I found that they actually work!
Anyway, this is not regarding the skincare but the ever famous BB cream.
I always knew that the BB creams are the only/main makeup the Koreans wear. Usually, the BB creams are not so very good at covering the spots etc. But in recent times, they could develop a BB cream with high coverage and many variants are available.
As of now I am going to show you the swatches and my review of the SKIN79 Super Plus BB Creams.
I was quite unsure of buying the full sizes as I wasn't sure of the shade. I'm dusky and not every bb cream suit me. So, I opted for the samples.
