NEW IN // KOREAN SKINCARE PRODUCTS

POST CONTAINS AFFILIATE LINKS.unspecified-55

Hey Loves,

I recently got a package from Stylekoren.com and I’m so excited because it was full of skincare products that I’ve been wanting to try for so long!

I got skincare only, no makeup, since makeup products from brands like TonyMoly and Etude House doesn’t really interrest me – but the skincare does.

I picked up so many face masks because that’s something I use almost daily and I also got a bunch of serums and creams. I really want to try to use more korean brands since they create some of the worlds best skincare and my friend Camilla always raves about it and she has amazing skin!

I did a youtube haul that you can watch below or see what I got on the photos plus from the list.

GERARD COSMETICS LIPSTICKS REVIEW + SWATCHES (13 shades)

img_7998

Hey guys,
Today I’m going to review and swatch 13 shades of the Gerard Cosmetics lipsticks for you all.

These lipsticks comes in 3 finishes; creamy, matte & satin and comes in 26 shades. They retail for $19 right HERE but you can get 30% off with the code ‘LAURALETH’ (affiliate) 💄

Like most of the Gerard Cosmetics stuff these have gold packaging which I love! I have these displayed in a lipstick holde ron my vanity along with their gold lipliners and it’s just so cute to look at!
The packaging feels sturdy and not cheap at all which is a plus for me, I hate cheap feeling packaging. The lipsticks also roll up and down the tubes with no problems and I have yet to break any of the lipsticks during application which happens with some lipsticks sometimes.

These are some of my favorite regular lipsticks to use because they’re super comfortable to wear, even the mattes, and they last for a long time so I don’t have to worry about re-applying all the time. They all fade pretty gradually so u’re left with e more subtle color all over and not just color on the outside of the lips.  They’re also really pigmented and give a nice opaque finish with 1-2 swipes and they don’t cling to dry patches on my lips. 💕

MY TOP 5 FAVORITE FOUNDATIONS (REVIEWS + SWATCHES)

Contains affiliate links.img_8034-1

Hey dolls,
Today I’m going to share my 5 favorite foundations with you all + review each one and swatch them. I have from 4 different brands with different prices, lowest being $8 and highest being $39.

I have dry fair skin and prefer a medium to full coverage – both matte and dewy depending on what look I’m going for and I always go for long lasting foundations! 💕

My top 5 are:

  1. Maybelline // Luminous + smooth (Dewy + smooth in the U.S). Get it HERE for $7.99.
    I LOVE this foundation. It has medium coverage with a super dewy finish that hydrates my skin, makes it look soft and natural yet it has the longevity of a satin/matte foundation. I use shade #105 in this one and I love how it matches me. I prefer to apply this with a beauty blender or with one of the kabuki face brushes from this brush set.
  2. Too Faced // Born This Way. Get it HERE for $39.
    This is my absolutely favorite out of them all and I use this 60% of the time I’m going out and I’m doing my makeup. It has medium to full coverage, a natural skin like finish and it’s very longlasting! I have 3 different shades in this one, ‘Porcelain’ (a bit too dark), ‘Ivory’ (a bit too yellow and one tone darker than my skin at the moment) and my newest shade is ‘Snow’ which is the perfect match for me at the moment! It says that ‘Snow’ has pink undertones but it’s a lot more neutral to yellow in my opinion. ‘Porcelain’ is the only one sold in Denmark so I got ‘Ivory’ in L.A. and loved the shade so I went to get a backup of it in London a few months ago and accidentally got ‘snow’ instead which I’m super happy about now! Now I have 3 to mix for spring and summer. I prefer to apply this with a beauty blender.
  3. MAC // Mineralize Moisture SPF 15. Get it HERE for $38.
    This has been an old favorite of mine and I’ve been using it for about 2-3 years now. I really love that this one is so dewy and moisturizing for my skin and it has a medium coverage with a nice skin like soft finish. This one has great longevity as well and it keeps my skin looking fresh all day. I use the shade NC15 and it matches perfectly. I prefer to apply this with a beauty blender or this brush.
  4. Anastasia Beverly Hills // Stick foundation. Get it HERE for $25.
    This is a newer favorite of mine. I reviewed it and swatched all the fair shades a few week ago + wrote about how I  like to apply it and prime for it, you can read that here.
  5. MAC // Studio Fix Fluid. You can get it HERE for $28.
    This is an oldie for me. I’ve probably been using Studio Fix for about 2-3 years now and it’s always going to be a favorite of mine. I need to go get a new one though haha, I have 5 in my drawer but apparently they’re all empty. This one is full coverage with a matte finish, perfect for those with oily skin as well. I make sure to use a good moisturizing primer under this one since I have dry skin and I never have any problems with it. This can last 12+ hours for me which is insane! I apply this with a beauty blender to give extra hydration and prevent it from clinging to any dry patches I may have.

Swatches left to right:
Luminous + smooth #105, Born this way ‘Ivory’,  MAC Mineralize NC15, ABH stick foundation ‘Ivory’ & MAC Studiox Fix NC15.

Now, I know the colors look quite orange but once you blend them onto the skin they definitely don’t look like that! 😂
As you can see they all look quite the same so if you know you’re a NC15 in MAC then these would most likely be the colors you’d be in these foundations.
