Yes Style Korean Beauty Box
I have wanted to try Asian makeup and skincare for so long, especially since the queen of makeup, Lisa Eldridge, always raves about Asian makeup. One brand that always intrigues me is Etude House so when the opportunity came up to test about some Korean makeup and skincare, I was so excited!

I received an adorable box of goodies from the lovely people at Yes Style to review. The box contained four skincare products and six makeup items from brands such as Laneige, Beauty people, Tosowoong, Berrisom, Tony Moly and Etude House, I was super excited about the latter two brands.

The first product I wanted to try is something I haven't used since high school, nose strips! I have the *Tosowoong Black Head Nose Pack (£1.90). The first thing I notice about Asian beauty products, especially compared to western products, is that the packaging is always so cute or colourful. I've tried the strips a couple of times and they do work well but I don't have a big problem with black heads.

There are some Asian beauty products that don't really have a western equivalent such as this next product which is a lip mask...the *Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask (£16.05). My lips are always so dry so a lip mask sounds amazing. It comes in a  gorgeous tub with a spatula; it applies like a thick glossy lip balm and it leaves my lips so smooth, soft and moisturised - love it!

I haven't had a chance to try the last two skincare items yet, including the *Tony Moly Rice Sheet Mask (£2.76) and the *Etude House Collagen Eye Patches (£2.76), both look interesting and I can't wait to try them! Now onto the makeup, I received so many products!

First up, the *Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream (£9.41, Light Beige) which is nothing like the western BB creams I've tried! This BB cream actually has decent coverage, more like a foundation than a tinted moisturiser, which isn't the case with western BB creams that offer no coverage. It has a skin like finish, light/medium coverage and it doesn't highlight dryness. I LOVE it, it's the best BB cream I've ever tried and the shade match is perfect for my ghostly pale skin.

I have two blush products and even though I don't usually wear blush, I do like these, especially the *MacQueen Cushion Lip and Cheek Tint in No.01 (£5.61) which is a gorgeous blue toned mauve; it is perfect for the summer to autumn transitional season. I prefer it as a blush shade to a lip shade, it blends seamlessly and I adore the packaging. The second blush also has gorgeous packaging and it is the *Berrisom Oops! Tint Cheek Cushion (£8.46, 02 Cream Peach) which has such an unusual but effective applicator - it has a sponge applicator which is so quick and easy to use. The shade is perfect for summer!

The last product I used in my video tutorial below, is the *Beauty People Gel Eyeliner Pencil (£5.90, Diamond Burgundy) which is the perfect autumn/winter shade (I'm very excited about autumn being so close!). The liner is creamy, easy to blend and it doesn't need sharpening.

The two makeup items I didn't use in my video were the *Berrisom My Lip Tint Pack (£4.13, 07 Vivid Scarlet) which is such a beautiful bright red shade but sadly it's so sticky and difficult to apply so I'm going to try it again as the longevity of the tint is amazing. Finally, the *Etude House Color My Brows (£7.90, Light Brown 02) and the only reason I didn't use it is because the shade is comptlely different to my brows - it would be perfect if you have strawberry blonde or ginger hair though.
Overall, I'm so happy with the vast majority of the products I was sent and I can't wait to try more! I adore the lip mask, BB cream, liner, blushers and pore strips! The only product I didn't really like was the My Lip Tint Pack. I'm really grateful to be able to have tried so many amazing products that I probably wouldn't have tried otherwise. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5!
