Christmas Gift Ideas: Skincare Edition

christmas-cookies-2918172_960_720

You know what gets me into the Christmas vibe faster than a Michael Buble’s Christmas album? Well, Christmas shopping of course! In case you’ve somehow missed it, it’s now officially December, snow should be tumbling (if you’re lucky enough) or at lease houses or shopping malls should be beaming with Christmas decorations and you should be busy with some gift wrapping.

Christmas shopping is often a difficult job – as I’ve learn after numerous Secret Santa last minute dash. It’s actually very hard to find the perfect Christmas gift, this is especially true if you don’t know the person too well (especially the case for my Secret Santa/Kris Kringle). So, if you’re someone like me who traditionally needs some help with gift ideas then I might just have the blog for you. Unlike previous years, I actually got my Christmas gifts sorted out already… this year, I’m gifting the gift of year of gifting glowing, youth skin aka SKINCARE!

So let’s just jump into some gift ideas that I wouldn’t mind receiving myself 😉

Innisfree’s

11077_l

Innisfree is a brand that I haven’t got much first hand experience with, mostly because it doesn’t sit too well with my oily-combo skin. However, my sister (with dry skin) loves Innisfree, in particular the Innisfree’s Green Tea Seed Serum. I’ve seen the serum help transform her dry flaky skin to a smooth and supple canvas within weeks! This Christmas set is definitely ideal for our dry skin pals. The packaging is dead gorgeous and the set gives them a ‘taste’ of everything. The set comes with the Innisfree’s Green Tea Cleansing Foam (30mL), Innisfree’s The Green tea Seed Serum (80mL) and Innisfree’s The Green Tea Seed Cream(20mL) – pretty much a full basic skincare routine. 

Sulwhasoo’s

I’m going to sound like a broken record, but here goes – Sulwhasoo is honestly my favourite Korean skincare brand (nothing new HAHA)! They are know for they ‘hanbang’ skincare products that are soothing and healing to the skin. This Christmas special gift set contains three of their popular facial masks – The Radiance Energy Mask (30mL) ,Overnight Vitalizing Mask (50ml) and Clarifying Mask (50mL). Sulwhasoo is a high-end Korean Skincare brand so expect some wallet-damage but trust me you’re paying for what you get! Probably a great gift for that someone who always goes above and beyond for you or ones who’ve shouted you too many coffees to count?

Kiehl’s

1124657_07_Hydration_Essentials_COMP_RGB_r3-1.jpg

Kiehl’s was actually my first ever Skincare brand – the brand focuses of apothecary type products. In other words, their products are simple and effectively without all those unnecessary frills and added fragrances. I particularly enjoy their eye cream and Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream, plus their Ultimate Strength Hand Salve isn’t too bad either. I found they this pretty cute ‘Disney x Kiehl’s Hydration Essentials’ set that they have in celebration of the coming Christmas season. The Kit includes the Ultimate Strength Hand Salve (30ml), Ultra Facial Cleanser (2.5oz), Ultra Facial Cream (7ml), Lip Balm #1 and the Crème de Corps (2.5oz) at an affordable A $36 price tag! This would be perfect for those new to skincare and just wanted to test out the products before having the full commitment of a full sized product. 

Trilogy: 

Trilogy_Botanical_Beauties_Rosehip_Radiance_Gift_Set_1506071765.png

Remember the time when all of Trilogy’s Rosehip Oil was flying off the shelves worldwide because The Duchess of Cambridge was said to love it during her pregnancy? Well if it’s good enough for Katherine it’s good enough for us! 😛 This Trilogy Rosehip Radiance Botanical Beauties set is honestly the full packaging!It comes with Trilogy’s Cream Cleanser (30mL), Rosehip Oil Antioxdiant+ (30mL) and Rosapene™ Radiance Serum(30mL). Why not gift the gift of glowing skin this Christmas

So there you have it, basically my Christmas shopping list in a blog! 😉

Enjoy your Christmas shopping my Wonderlandians!

Until next time,

Stay Curious!

Product Review: Sulwhasoo’s Gentle Cleansing Oil EX

How about we take a little break from the festive Christmas posts for a bit and tuck into some good old product review yeh? Yes, yes?  😉

So my subject for today?

Lo and behold ..

SULWHASOO’S GENTLE CLEANSING OIL EX!

Sulwhasoo Gentle Cleansing Oil EX Review

Sulwhasoo is honestly one of my favourite Korean skincare company. I’ll admit, the product do err on the ‘expensive’ side of things however I feel like an invest is justified if I know the products work (rather than spending bits and pieces on products that are a complete waste of time)! What I particularly LOVE about Sulwhasoo is their holistic beauty approach, ‘beauty of the body and mind, as well as inner and outer beauty’. Sulwhasoo’s products are  ‘Hanbang’ products – which means they’re made from traditional ingredients such as Ginseng. These ingredients  have been used historically especially amongst Asian women to nurture and protect their skin.

I particularly am in love with Sulwhasoo’s Perfecting CushionBB Perfecting Cushion (Brightening) and their Essential First Care Activating Serum EX but now I can finally add another product to that list!

Why? Let’s find out! 

Claims

Gentle Cleansing Oil EX

For a clear and healthy complexion

An essential first step for nurturing clear and healthier looking skin
This gentle cleansing oil features the key ingredients of Coix Lacryma-Jobi seed, tangerine peel extract, and apricot kernel oil, which clear the skin and leave a brighter and healthier base.

Delicate and smooth oil that cleanses quickly and gently
The delicate action of the oil quickly and gently dissolves makeup effortlessly, without overstimulating the skin.

Clean and refreshing finish
This water-soluble cleansing oil removes makeup and buildup on the skin, leaving a clean and refreshing sensation.

From Sulwhasoo’s Offical Website.

Sulwhasoo Gentle Cleansing Oil EX Review

Tinnie’s Verdict: 

Packaging: Simple. The bottle is made of plastic and comes with a convenient pump. The bottle is light weight making it super travel friendly!

Removing ability:  Great! This cleansing oil removes everything! Yes, even my waterproof mascara!

Convenience: Great! I LOVE this cleaning oil because it made my life so so much easier. All I needed was one pump  and a thirty seconds face massage and wa-la I’m done!

Scent: Medium-Strong. There was a scent to this product, a classic Sulwhasoo herbal scent that I quite enjoyed. Although it’s not at all overpowering, you may not like it if you’re someone who doesn’t like scented products.

Price: Reasonable. This product retails at $33 AUD, initially I thought this was rather pricey for an oil cleanser. However, this cleanser made my life so much easier and lasted for quite a while. Well worth the price!

For sensitive, combo skin? Yes- for me anyways 🙂 I’ve always had problems with using makeup removers that are not Micellar Water. My previous experience with makeup removal balms (Banilla Co’s Clean it Zero) and cleansing oils (Face Shop’s Rice Water Bright Light Cleansing Oil) were disasters. My skin broke out and my rosacea exacerbated, so I was super happy that this cleaning oil worked for me! 😀

Claims: Verified. Indeed it does all that it promised. It certainly “cleanses quickly and gently without overstimulating the skin”.

Repurchase? Yes. I most certainly am going to stock up  on this cleansing oil, it is by far the best (as easiest) makeup remover I’ve tried yet.

Overall, I love the ideas of cleansing oils because they’re super fast, easy and clean (in a sense that you won’t be left with a bajillion cotton pads after). This Sulwhasoo’s Gentle Cleansing Oil EX was super good at removing all of my makeup in one step – meaning that I’m one step closer to my bed! Definitely a thumbs up from me so be sure to go and try it out!

And that’s all folks!

Until next time,

Stay curious!

~ QUESTIONS FROM GAB~

If you had to only use 3 makeup products for the rest of your life, what would they be?

Oh dear I do hope I can use more than 3 products for the duration of my life (there’s so many cool things out there!;) ) but if I could only pick three then it’ll be Sulwhasoo’s Perfecting Cushion foundation, Maybelline’s Hypersharp eyeliner and Etude House’s Dear Darling Lip tints!

What country do you want to visit and why?

Iceland! I’d love to witness the Northern Lights for myself!

What made you start blogging?

My makeup and skincare stash was growing at an unhealthy rate and I needed to justify my purchases! HAHA . Also because I personally enjoy reading reviews (not necessarily that ones you get underneath products at sites like Sephora you know) but by bloggers who’s joy and passion is in sharing their views on products! So I started my blog basically to add my two cents to this lovely beauty community! 😉

Which actor/actress would you choose to play you in a movie about yourself?

Red Velvet’s Joy because she’s gorgeous and in all honestly looks nothing like me, but I guess she’ll make an enjoyable movie for the masses!

Speaking too quickly at public events and accidentally saying words that I didn’t mean to say!

~ MY FIVE QUESTIONS ~

  2. (Weird question) Is there a makeup technique that you still cannot master and why?
  3. Have you got any great DIY skincare or makeup tips that you swear by?
  4. What is your ultimate favourite makeup/skincare brand and why?
  5. What is the one product you’ve tried this year that you cannot rave enough about?

~ MY BEST POST ~

The blog post that I’m most happy with at the moment would be Skincare for a Starry* Winter Night! – This post not only combines my two favourite subject Skincare & Star gazing but also was a rare post where I got a bit chit chatty! 😀

I believe that concludes it! Once again thank you for the nomination Gabs and I hope you guys will continue to enjoy and find my blog posts useful!

Christmas Special: Winter Angel Makeup Essentials

 

Michelle Phan for her Angel Baby Makeup Tutorial

Now I love my home here in Oz but the one thing that I am super envious with my Wonderlandians in the United States about would be their White Snowy Christmas. As you know, it rarely snows here in Australia and our Christmas is usually  scorching hot (which means ice cream and the beach) which isn’t too bad, but one could wish for a change. 😉

So today, I’ll be sharing  my top 5 essential makeup products for a ‘Winter Angel’ makeup look which is  inspired by Michelle Phan’s Angel Baby Makeup Tutorial. This look is perfect for your Christmas parties or just as something fun to get you into the Christmas spirit! My idea of the Winter Angel makeup look is basically a glammed up version of your Kpop makeup with particular focus on glittery eyes (maybe not as glittery as Michelle’s, but hey you do you!), soft fluttery lashes and a soft baby pink lip!

So, what products do you need for your own interpretation of the Winter Angel makeup? 

1. Rimmel London’s Good to Glow 

Rimmel Good to Glow The Rainy wonderland

It’s all about that base! Dewy skin is still in so why not rock it? Try mixing some of Rimmel London’s Good to Glow into your favourite foundation to get an all even glow or apply Good to Glow on high points on your face for some definition.

Rimmel London’s Good to Glow is not too expensive and a little goes a long way – well worth the money!

Review: Here

2. E.L.F’s Tone Correcting Powder

ELF Tone Correcting Powder

You’ll need to set that foundation in place but why mattify a dewy finish that you’ve tried so hard to achieve? Consider a using a finishing powder that can give you that glow instead. Some great options would be NYX’s Radiant Finishing Powder (Brightening) or Hourglass’s Ambient Lighting Powder. Alternatively, E.L.F’s Tone Correcting Powder would work just as great. The powder has four colour correcting shades, but when mixed together can also give you that healthy radiant finish! Another plus? The price, I got mine for $4 AUD!

3. Maybelline’s The Falsies Volume Express

Maybelline Falsies Mascara The Rainy Wonderland

In Michelle’s look her lashes are pretty natural looking, so this is where my Winter Angel look defers to her Angel Baby’s. I love the look of soft fluttery lashes, and nothing screams angel more than said lashes!

I like to use my Maybelline’s The Falsies Volume Express (waterproof) to attain long and fluttery lashes.  It’s important to not go in for too many coats with this mascara, espeically if you’re keen in keeping to that soft look since it can get a bit clumpy (but if clumpy is your thing then go crazy! 😀 ) .

4. Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette

Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Collection - The Rainy Wonderland

For those eyes.. well I love Michelle’s look but I’m not sure if you can buy her eyeshadow palettes anymore (I could be wrong)? A great alternative for me would be the glittery shades in Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow.  The shades Nectar, Luscious, Cobbler, Caramelized, Bless Her Heart and Bellini in particular are super glittery.

Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Collection

Whilst Bless Her Heart does appear quite greenish on the palette, however it’s a bit more greyish than green so it’s perfect for a little smoked eye look too.

Review: COMING SOON

5.  Lips 

Lipsticks for Christmas The Rainy Wonderland

I love the baby pink Michelle used in her tutorial, a few pink lip sticks that I have that’s be great for this Christmas look  would be  Laniege’s Two Toned Lip bar in No.4, Maybelline’s More To Adore and Maybelline’s Mesmerizing Magenta. Mesmerizing Magenta is a tad purplish and strays off the baby soft lip concept, but it’s so pretty!

So there you go guys, my essentials for a Winter Angel makeup look. Obviously the look is inspired my Michelle Phan’s Angel Baby look so check out her youtube channel for some great makeup tips and ideas!

Enjoy your Christmas preparations Wonderlandians!

Until next time …

Stay curious!

Christmas Special: Stocking Fillers For ‘The Korean Makeup Lover’

It’s almost time for that merry season again! Carols are blasting and decorations are glistering and twinkling from store to store, it’s a subtle reminder that Christmas is well and truly on its way and its finally time to start (or maybe think about) our Christmas shopping.

Christmas Korean Makeup ideas - Budget Friendly

I decided to focus this post on ‘Stocking Fillers’ rather than actual present ideas (this is coming later). Stocking fillers are basically items that are given in conjunction to Christmas presents, these items are generally smaller in size and potentially not as damaging on the wallet.

This list of Stocking Fillers ideas are great for those Korean Makeup Lovers in our lives, ones that loves booping to Kpop and watching youtube videos on Kpop makeup or trends (btw who’s loving Red Velvet’s Peekaboo?) .

I’m sure you’ll find at least one K-beauty lover in your life .. surely!

Anyhow, let us begin!

*This list in not in any particular order*

1. Etude House’s Dear Darling Tint 

Christmas at The Rainy Wonderland - Dear Darling Lip Tints

Sorry for the pretty much empty bottles – I just wanted to illustrate the range of colours available 🙂

These inexpensive lip tints from Etude house are not only adorable but inexpensive! I got mine for about $10 AUD.These are plenty of shades to chose from and when in doubt maybe pick up a few extra? 😉

Etude’s Dear Darling Lip tints are perfect for work or days where you’re not really interested in having to reapply your lip stick every 2 hours – they stain and last pretty much all day! Additionally it’s perfect for the gradient lip trend!

2. VDL’s Lumilayer Primer

VDL lumilayer Primer- The perfect budget friendly choice for Christmas gifting

This primer pretty much guarantees that the recipient will be able to attain that dewy or ‘chok-chok’ skin all those beauty Kpop idols seem to be born with. This product is a tad more expensive, at about ~$34 AUD, but a tiny pea size amount is really all that is required so a bottle will also a very long time!

3. Clio’s Kill Cover Eyeliner

CLIO's Kill Cover Eyeliner are the perfect choices for Stocking Stockers

These eyeliners are great for not only that crisp and sharp winged eyeliner but also the infamous ‘puppy eyes’ look. These eyeliners are not too expensive and will be a great addition to their makeup collection. Choose a black eyeliner for someone who likes to have that statement makeup look or brown for the lovely ladies/fellas who prefer the ‘no-makeup’ look.

Review: Here

4. Etude House’s Proof 10 Eye Primer

Christmas ideas - Etude House's Proof 10 Eye Primer

Etude House’s Proof 10 Eye Primer is a magnificent product, inexpensive and gets the job done! It’s definitely a makeup staple and a must have for those who have yet to tried or if they’ve already got one – it’s always great to have a backup on hand. 😀

Review: Here

5. Etude House’s Blend for Eyes

Etude House's Blend for Eyes Eyeshadow

Yes, yes another Etude House product (and nope I’m not sponsored! Haha), but I couldn’t resist.  Not only does Etude House has such amazing and affordable products, but their products are so cutely packaged that it’s basically ready for gifting!

This eyeshadow palette has great pigmentation and the shades are just so beautiful – perfect for that ‘Rose Spring Look’ or ‘First Date Makeup’.  If you don’t think they’ll like the reddish hues in this palette then no fear, theres still plenty of other combos to choose from, I’m sure you’ll find a perfect match! 😉

Review:Here

So there you go Wonderlandians! My Stocking Fillers ideas for those Korean Makeup Lovers in your life. There’ll be a few more Christmas Special posts coming so stay tuned! I hope you enjoy the festive buzz!

Until next time,

Stay curious!

Nighttime Skincare Routine : Spring 2017

Rainy Wonderland Spring Skincare Routine

So I thought it’s about time that I share my Spring skincare routine with my fellow Wonderlandians! Spring in Oz is generally very dry and hot and so I try to layer my products rather than use very thick products. I’m someone who loves my skincare, so you’ll find that I have a few more steps than your average person! 😀

So lets dive into the routine! 

1.Curel’s Makeup Cleansing Gel (Intensive Moisture Care)

How I use it: A small 2cm sized amount is all I usually need. This gel turns oily once I start to rub it into my dry face. Once all traces of makeup have been dissolved, I apply a little amount of water to get rid of the gel.

Properties: Makeup Remover.

 

2. Rosette Cleansing Paste (Ghassoul Bright)

How I use it: I use a small pea size amount on my  Foreo Luna Play facial cleansing device to  lather it up and help throughly clean off any residue makeup.

Properties: Second step cleanser.

 

3. Cosrx’s Galactomyces Alcohol-Free Toner

How I use it: A few spritz straight after cleansing.

Properties: Returns balance to the face after double cleansing.

 

4. Drunk Elephant’s T.L.C Framboos  Glycol Night Serum

How I use it: One pump to be spread evenly onto dry skin.

Properties: Chemical exfoliator to help  clear off dead skin cells and reduce appearances of pores and fine lines.

 

5.   SK-II Facial Treatment Essence

How I use it: I usually use about 3-4 drops into the palms then pat onto face.

Properties: Multiple – Anti-acne, anti-aging and helps attain that healthy glow!

 

6. SK-II RNA Power Eye Cream

How I use it: I use half a pea size amount for both eyes. I simply dot it underneath and above my eyelids then using my ring finger gently massage the product in.

Properties: Anti-aging eye care.

 

7. SK-II RNA Power Essence

How I use it: One pump full onto the palms then direct application to face and massage until absorbed.

Properties: Anti-aging.

 

8.   Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence

How I use it: I usually use about 2 pumps to massage into the face.

Properties: Multiple- helps with hyper-pigmentation , anti-aging and moisturising.

 

9.  SK-II’s RNA Power Cream

How I use it: A small pea-sized amount is all that I required. I dot it all over my face then gently massage in a upward motion.

Properties: Moisturising and anti-aging.

Now that concludes my nighttime skincare routine! Nine steps does appear quite extensive, but it actually only takes about 5-10 minutes to complete. I’m someone who quite enjoy my skincare routine so I have no problem with nine steps! 😛

I hope you found it useful!

Until next time,

Stay curious!

Too Faced Sketch Marker Liquid Art Liner Review

Hello Wonderlandians, I hope all has been well!

Too Faced Sketch Eyeliner Rainy Wonderland

It’s November (already), this means that the holidays are fast approaching! I bet your December will be a busy one, filled with busy errands, party planing and holiday parties! So before December hits, now may be a good time to think about yourself for a bit and accumulate your makeup/skincare “wishlist”… I mean, we all deserve to treat ourselves ever so often hey?

Since the beginning of this blog (7 months to be exact 😉 ), I have (quite un-expectantly) posted quite a few product reviews. Now, I don’t know about you, but I LOVE to read up about products before I go out to buy and test products for myself. For me, it just adds to the fun factor. I hope that my reviews not only help entertain you but also to  direct you to products that may be best suited for your skin or requirements. 😉

ANYWAYS, rambling aside, 

As the title suggests, this blog post will be reviewing Too Faced Sketch Marker Liquid Eyeliner. There’s actually not too much fanfare around this eyeliner (although it promises a fair bit…) and I can actually see why…

So without further ado, let the review begin!

Product’s Claims: 

Too Faced Sketch Marker Charcoal black

Advanced liquid eyeliner inspired by Japanese Calligraphy Pens creates smooth, vivid, waterproof lines. The flexible tip allows you to effortlessly create paintbrush-like strokes for daytime to dramatic cat eyes and everything in between.

DETAILS
Precision-control felt tip allows silky smooth ink flow for even coverage
Achieve multiple line widths in paintbrush-like strokes
Waterproof formula will not fade or feather
Range of shades from sheer pastel washes of color to rich, deep pigment saturation

HOW IT WORKS
Shake Sketch Marker before using so the ink saturates the precision felt tip. Point the tip towards the inner corner of the eye and glide across the lashline in a smooth, even motion. For the easiest application, create three dashes and connect them in the middle.

Tinnie’s Verdict: 

Too Faced Sketch Eyeliner Rainy Wonderland

Application:  Tolerable. This is tricky one – so the first time I used this eyeliner I was blown away! The application was so smooth and I seriously had never used an eyeliner like it! However, the third time was a massive disappointment! The felt-tip was no longer as smooth  as before and the application in itself was horrific to watch. The liner dragged my eyelids even with the slightest pressure – dragging the delicate skin around your eyes would probably be the last thing you want to do. So, ever since trying to get a smooth and precise line has been impossible. 😦

Too Faced Sketch Marker in Charcoal black

From top to bottom: 1) One light application, 2) Two applications and 3) One application with heavy pressure.

Pigmentation: Changes. Initially, it appeared to be the darkest black eyeliner I’ve ever used. However, as I progressively use it the pigmentation becomes less pigmented. Now, I can only get some colour after mutilple reapplication and with a lot of pressure (which means I can never achieve the sharp dark line I was after). *I know the picture above looks very pigmented but trust me, I can never get it to look like that on my eyes!*

Waterproof: Good. No denying that this doesn’t budge no matter how much water your drown it in.

Longevity: 4-6 hours. As you may already know, I have super oily skin and hence super oily eyelids! Eye makeup rarely lasts very long on my eyes, so for this eyeliner to last 4-6 hours on my eyelids is quite an amazing feat.

Shades: ~11 shades. I got mine in Charcoal black but these liners come in an array of fun colours (think pink and lilac!).

Price: Medium. At $28 AUD, it’s the same price as one of my favourite eyeliner, CLIO’s Waterproof Brush Liner … but would I be able to justify $28 for this? Nope.

Packaging: Cute. The packaging is so adorable! It looks just like one of those cute Japanese pens that were all the range back in my high school days.

Con: I find that this formulation dried very quickly. So, I tend to get frustrated with this eyeliner because it peels and “flakes” off when I came back to fix or extend the wind.  ARGH!

Repurchase? NOPE. This eyeliner was great once (basically when I used it for the first time), after that it appears fragments of eyeshadow or powder residue on my eyes may have been transferred to the felt tip applicator affecting it’s performance. HOWEVER, I’ve had eyeliners that I can use over and over onto of my made up eyelids without it’s performance being affected. To me, the design of this tips needs to be improved and until then, I’ll make sure to avoid this eyeliner.

Overall, I don’t think that this eyeliner is worth investing in and I would not recommend it. For $28 I had higher expectations (bare in mind this is $28 for 0.45ml). I highly suggest you invest in a more worthwhile and better performing eyeliner like Maybelline’s HyperSharp Eyeliner. 

How you tried this eyeliner? Tell us what you think about it! 🙂

Until next time,

Stay Curious!
