Sneak Peek | SkinFood x Eva Armisen.

Hello from Seoul!
Yes, I'm back in South Korea, which I now fondly refer to as 'my other motherland'. I came with my little man, as usual, and we'll be staying here for a good four weeks. It's still Yue's school break after all and we're entitled to stay here for a maximum of 30 days, so we're making the most out of this spring vacation (and the money we spent on plane tickets, haha).

Anyway, one of the first things I did when we arrived was to do the groceries at Emart - the largest and oldest discount store chain in Korea. They have about 140 stores across the country, and the nearby branch is conveniently just a few blocks away from our place.

Whilst there, I made a beeline for the beauty section located at the second floor. Of course, I still prefer to shop for makeup at Myeongdong, but I figured it wouldn't hurt if I did a bit of window shopping at Emart before I do the actual shopping. Because I'm OC like that, lol.

And here's what I found - another makeup collaboration, this time from SkinFood.

The popular Korean skincare and cosmetics brand teamed up with Spanish artist Eva Armisen to bring us the Waterful Days collection, a limited edition line inspired by love and nature.

The collection includes the 0.9 Moist Cream Special Set (retails at 24000 Korean won) available in four different designs...

And the Pore Fit Pure Skin Cushion (retails at 20000 Korean won) with two designs to choose from.
Apparently, Eva Armisen is not new to working with Korean brands as this is her third collaboration collection with SkinFood. Her earlier collections were released sometime in 2013 and were inspired by happiness and love for family.

Eva Armisen has also worked with Korean fashion mall Doota, with her art installation as the mall's highlight and center of attention during the last Christmas season.

Turns out, Eva Armisen's artworks are currently on display at the Gana Art Gallery in nearby Jongno until the 10th of May. I'm considering dropping by if the schedule permits. :)

Enjoy your trip! I really like the packaging of this one. And since I normally just use a cleanser and a moisturizer, this is really interesting for me. They have tons of products to choose from!

Love the label, it's so cute and totally chic style. I've seen this but never tried it. I wish I can try this one and have in my area.

I have always heard that beauty products & cosmetics from Asian countries are quiet amazing & you would want to try it just for how these packages looks cute. Skinfood sounds like a great brand with some wonderful products to try out.
