Makeup over Flowers.

A friend of my MIL came home from Korea last week. She's an OFW like my husband, and will be vacationing for about three weeks here in the Philippines. She was also kind enough to bring home these 'pasalubong'. From my husband, of course.


Korean cosmetics, what else? :)


Oh, the pretty packaging! That's Missha Signature Real Complete BB Cream and Missha Wrinkle-Filler BB Cream - two of the best BB creams ever, as far as I'm concerned. I actually began with testers, and after being satisfied with the results, decided to go full-size.

I have yet to do a review for the Wrinkle Filler BB Cream. As for the Real Complete BB Cream, I did a review about it some six months ago - one of the first product reviews posted in this blog.


Also one of the best wash-off masks that I've used is the Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask. My pores were being stubborn a couple of weeks ago, so I ordered a few testers of this online. After the first use, this mask left my skin soft, supple, and pore-less. Hence, the upgrade to a 100mL jar.


And because I'm totally obsessed with my undereyes, husband got me the Missha Super Aqua Lifting Eye Cream. I was actually torn between this and the Golden Snowflake Eye Cream, which is just as popular as the Super Aqua.


I ended up with testers from the Golden Snowflake and Time Revolution line, anyway. Although I have yet to figure out which is the serum, the booster, and the eye cream from this bunch.That's my only complaint when it comes to Missha. Almost everything is written in Hangul!

That cute little compact, by the way, is a lip color palette. It came as a freebie, too.


And because the husband knows I need a daily dose of caffeine, he sent me these ready-to-drink Maxim coffee. The pink sticks are Cafe Latte, the brown sticks are Cafe Mocha.

Isn't my husband the sweetest? He may not surprise me with roses on Valentines Day or other special occasions, but not many husbands out there would go to a cosmetics store and buy stuff like these for their wives. I consider myself lucky to have married someone who does. :)

Hello

I was not able to buy these precious makeup / bb creams while I was vacationing in Korea last December. I will surely keep these BB creams and other makeup stuff that you mentioned in this post when I go back.

You are right not all husbands would go inside a makeup store and buy, my husband included! So you are really one lucky gal!

So sweet my husband wouldn't know the difference between makeup and kitty litter lol! Congrats on all the goodies!

Pamela said...

Yay on all the wonderful things you got, I love how nice the packaging is.

I guess I'm one of the lucky ones...my husband would buy me makeup any day of the week! He says it's important for me to feel good, and anything it takes for me to do that he's okay with!

Susan said...

I would prefer make up over flowers any day of the week as well. Where can I order that particular BB cream? I am using another one now which I really like, but would love to try this one since you recommend it so highly.
