The Best Korean Eyelash Curler

As most of the people know cosmetics and beauty products are close to my heart — especially Korean ones. You can barely find any other than Korean products from my makeup bag ( for example The best Korean foundation for Oily skinand that's for a reason: they are good quality, ahead of western ones and in many cases cheaper. I would like to introduce you my favorite eyelash curler which I use on a regular basis to get beautiful eyelashes. It is cheap, stylish and it works!
The curler is Curl Fix from Etude House and it costs less than 5 euros. The color is black matte so it also looks better than cheap iron ones. It doesn't pinch eye lids at all so I guess it is perfect for my eye shape!

Here you can see a before picture: My lashes are light and not really thick so I need a bit stronger curler to make them look good. After cleaning your skin and waiting the moisturizer to dry is an ideal moment to curl the lashes.
After curling I put some mascara. For example Etude House a gr…

The best Korean foundation for oily skin

When I came to Korea for the first time I fell in love with cosmetics here. South Korea is well known for their huge beauty industry and I bet anyone who has been here knows that they have thousands of amazing products for every kind of people. My skin type is oily and the color is light so I have always struggled to find decent priced makeup foundation which is not too dark and stays longer on my face. Luckily, Korea saved me! Let me introduce you Double Lasting Foundation from Etude House.
What does it do? The foundation promises to be long-lasting and offer a semi-matte finish. The touch is light and the scent is delightful. The double lasting foundation should cover your skin with single coat and make it flawless. It is also said to adhere the skin without making it heavy or caky. There are various shades for different skin tones, so I guess many people can find a good one for themselves!
How to use it? Clean and moisturize the skin well. Shake the bottle up and down and take proper…

Truth about what I don't like in Korea

Don't take me wrong: I love Korea. But sometimes there are things I really miss in Europe or things I just don't like too much here. After telling about many good things I want to share my honest opinion of some things I dislike. No place is perfect even tho Korea is pretty awesome. Let's start!
1. Snacks ...in convenience stores. Sometimes I wish I could find some healthy sandwich, rye bread or a smoked salmon salad instead of a single wrapped sausage or a cheese stick. I still don't understand why most of the snacks are so unhealthy not only in Korea but allover in Asia in most of the convenience stores. If you want to have some chopped fruits you have to pay more than for a burger or instant noodles. 2. People staring and asking I explained this better in my previous post HERE but let's brush up. People (strangers) who stare at you on the streets and and ask you too many private questions what makes you feel uncomfortable. This is happening to me mostly in Asia.

Lush Surprise

We all know Lush - the store full of scents when we pass by. As a not big surprise, Lush is also super popular in Korea. I barely find an area without Lush! Today I want to introduce a surprise box I got as a present.

The box was cute and colorful like Lush products in general. When I opened it I didn't know what to expect. What was inside there?
I got a blue "Whoosh Shower jelly" and a "Herbalism Face and Body cleanser". Both include 100% vegetarian ingredients and like other Lush products they are not tested on animals. In addition to that, they are handmade in Lush "kitchens". It's better to keep the products inside the fridge because of the fresh ingredients — they maintain good only a couple of months. Shower jelly is made with softening seaweed gel, essential oils and fruits extracts. It has a scent of citrus and the texture is thick jelly. The color resembles of bright blue seawater with glitter. Because of the texture you are supposed to tak…

Instagram-Worthy Cafe in Seoul

One day I was wandering around in Sinsa-dong 신사동 and I didn't expect to find something new or worth visiting. Somehow I saw a huge building which entrance seemed very tempting. A lot of people were there and to be honest it kinda triggered me to pay a visit. Well, I didn't regret! The place is called C27 Cheesecake & Coffee Wine. I never heard about it before and I really wondered how is that even possible because I have been exploring so many cafes and places in Seoul! However, the cafe is famous for its delicious cheesecakes and for the classical stereotype of having cheese and wine together. So briefly it's a place for cheese lovers (or cake lovers)
I saw some plain cheesecakes as a decoration (or maybe for eating?) They had a huge selection of different kind of cakes for example mint chocolate, mango, earl grey, oreo, plain cheesecake, berry, banana coconut, chocolate, vanilla...so many flavors to choose from! I tried the mango and banana coconut ones and they wer…
