Korea Beauty Haul : All Our Makeup Picks

We recently went on an all girls trip to Seoul, South Korea. As some of you may or may not know, Korea is the ultimate place to buy some of the best beauty products! We stayed at Myeongdong and right behind our hotel was the cosmetics street. Imagine rows upon rows of cosmetics shops right there at our disposal (insert heart eyed emojis). If you've read a few posts not so long ago, you'll know that we are absolutely obsessed with Korean Beauty. So to be at the heart of it was a dream!

Almost all of the major Korean brands that we know of (and more!) were there and some brands even had multiple stores within blocks of each other! Some of the brands we saw and visited were Innisfree, Banila Co, Clio, Holika Holika, Mamonde, Missha, Skinfood and Tony Moly. These are not even half of what we saw and we wish we could have gone to every single store! Sharing with you guys our finds, hopefully this will inspire and serve as a guide to you in case you plan on going someday.

I'm sharing with you now all our makeup picks whilst Maan shall be doing a separate post on skincare.


I'm really wishing I spent more time in Mamonde! The store has a really pretty and super calm presence, I felt like it was such a nice respite from the hustle, bustle and the crowd in Myeongdong! Maan and I got highlighter sticks for our sisters and I got an eyeshadow color balm that comes in a stick form. These highlight sticks are so pretty and subtle on. Its perfect for applying down the line of the nose - really makes your nose look longer without it being too shiny and glittery!
