Winter in Korea! [ Haul & Pictures ] +SKIN79 BB Cream & Chanel Perfection Lumiere Review

Hello everyone!
Hope you had a really nice holiday!

Can't believe it's 2012 now, have you guys made your New Year's Resolutions? Or maybe have completed any? I know I haven't made mine :/ Guess I should be working on that.

As you guys might know, I went to Korea for the holidays - with my family.
It was super fun - as it was my first visit there, one thing that stands out for me the most : a lot of pretty girls! Hahaha. One day I shall go there to do some rhinoplasty XP Not only that but most of them have gorgeous porcelain skin - envy! I wonder if it's the skincare? Makeup? or is it just the weather?

Here are some of the pictures of my trip in Korea. :)









So we went to Jeju Island, skiing at High1 Resort, Mt.Sorak, and Seoul. Didn't have much time to shop around so didn't buy any clothes.. It's summer in Sydney and they only sell heavy duty winter clothes sadly :( I know I know I can wear them in winter later but I had no desire whatsoever to shop for winter clothes at that moment.

But! I bought heaps of masks & miscellaneous stuff from Skinfood, Innisfree, Etude, etc I don't even remember! I don't really know if they're any good but they were super cheap so I just kept on buying them :)







Oh of course I bought some BB Creams! The one that particularly stands out for me is the SKIN79 BB Cream - Triple Function. 

SKIN79 Super BB Cream 



Review: So I have been using this one a lot - and I must say I really like it. The colour is overwhelmingly fair ( as most BB Creams are) but after 1 minute it will settle to your skin colour magically. The coverage is medium to full - so it's perfect for those who think tinted moisturiser is too sheer but also at the same time don't want to wear foundation. The smell is not too overwhelming but it might be different for other people as I have a high tolerance for fragranced makeup/skincare. It doesn't settle into fine lines and you need to put powder after as it doesn't really help with oil control. I give this 3.5/5! 


You just need a tiny little bit for your whole face:



After I spread it on my hands :



That's all for my holiday in Korea. Sorry I just kept it short xP
I have tons and tons of pictures but it would be too much hahaha :)

Chanel Perfection Lumiere 
Anyways unfortunately I left my foundation in Indonesia (where I was before I went to Korea) - and I needed to buy a new one before I went clubbing the other day. I decided to buy the Chanel Perfection Lumiere (20 BEIGE) - as the SA recommended that one for me because I have combination oily skin but does not want anything too matte.



Review: My first Chanel foundation and I love it! I won't use this for everyday foundation but I am happy to repurchase if I ever run out. It's not too matte but not too dewy - it's perfect! The oil control is really great since I wore it all night (with Chanel powder) without retouching! I use Hourglass primer with it (A GREAT PRIMER - MUST BUY) and used MAC 187 stippling brush. I give this.. 4/5 star! :D


Here are some pictures of me wearing this foundation (after sweats for 3 hours - 4 hours ish) without retouching! (sorry for bad quality pics - taken directly from Facebook! LOL) Sorry I was already hammered so my eyes were bloodshot. XP


Me and bestie Katherine! She wants to make a beauty blog and I'm convincing her to do it! She's gorgeous isn't she hehe~
Phew that was a long post!
Well, See you guys next time!
