Korean Cosmetic Haul



I am always intrigued with products available in other countries.  I am particularly obsessed with both UK and Korean beauty products.  Korean products have really taken over the blogosphere lately, and there has been a couple of products that I have been obsessed with and really wanted to try.  Luckily Amazon sells just about everything so I was able to order a few of the products.


There were two products in particular that I really want to try; the TONYMOLY Petite Bunny Gloss Bars and the Etude House Etoinette Heart Blusher.  I then ordered the Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher.  


I am not going to lie.  I wanted the Etoinette Heart Blusher because the packaging is just so cute and very girly.  And while the packaging is just plastic, it reminds me of an old vintage blusher.  

There were two colors available on amazon, coral masquerade and pink kiss.  I tend to use more coral colors in warmer months, so I got that.  Etude also makes a heart highlighter in the same packaging and a crystal powder in a similar white packaging.  

I don't find this to be too pigmented.  I am not sure I could wear it as a true blush.  It does have a gorgeous sheen to it, so I have been using it more as a highlighter on the tops of my cheeks; however it is pigmented enough that I can't use it to highlight my nose or cupid's bow.   

I wasn't going to buy the Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher because I don't really need another pink blush, or any blush of that matter, but the packaging got me again and I just had to have it.  The seller I bought from (which I'll mention below) had a number of colors available. I got Raspberry Tarte

I really love bright pink blush.  I tend to wear pink more in the winter but this color was just so gorgeous not to pass up.  It was surprised at how pigmented this is.  I have been using it daily and just need a very light hand.  


I have seen the TONYMOLY Petite Bunny Gloss Bars on so may different beauty blogs.  Again, the packaging is adorable! They come in a ton of different colors.  I got one in juicy apple and one in juicy peach.  

I didn't know what to expect with these, but they are really quite nice. The product itself has the consistency of a lipstick at first but when you apply it is kind of feels more between a gloss and a balm.  They not at very hydrating, but give a really great color without being too pigmented for the day.


The seller I bought from included a ton of samples with my order.  I haven't been able to try any yet, but I am excited to research what they do (the descriptions are not in English) and give them a try.  

I order from A-Poly on Amazon.  They had all the products that I wanted to try and their prices were in line with other sellers. I believe they ship from Korea, and shipping was on the pricer side, but that was because it was an international shipment.  They quoted 17-30 days for my delivery but I got it exactly 2 weeks later.
