The Korean beauty industry has been booming for years, so it’s not surprise that it’s also super saturated with numerous brands and products. When people first delve into k-beauty, I find that most are only aware of larger brands (mostly owned by parent companies like Amore Pacific). However, this is one of those fields where indie brands aren’t exactly falling behind – in fact, a lot of the time they are actually doing better!
So then comes to question – where should you start? Today I’ll be sharing five of my all-time favourite k-beauty skincare products. These are all products that I’ve used over and over again, so I would definitely recommend checking them out.
To be frank, eyeshadow palettes are my personal weakness. I buy so many of them that I’ve become somewhat of a collector but that isn’t practical for the every day makeup user. The fact is that we have so many options now that I can be very difficult to navigate, so today I’ll be recommending some of the best eyeshadow palettes – in my humble opinion anyway.
I will be recommending palettes based on quality, versatility and ease of use – so read on!
I am a lover of high-end eyeshadow palettes – that’s just it really. I do have a number of k-beauty favourites and I’d try out drugstore brands as well, but I usually choose to invest more into my eyeshadows. That being said though, brands like Natasha Denona are notoriously expensive – and for good reason, as their formulas are absolutely beautiful! I recently got my first full-sized palette from her but, prior to that, I really liked to play with her mini palettes.
The one here is her Mini Gold Palette, which is a compact five-shade extension of her full size Gold Palette (which sells for a good AUD$205). Comparatively, this mini is a steal at AUD$42, and an even better price point if you wait for a Sephora sale.
It’s great for people who loved the full size and want something similar for travel, or those (like me) who aren’t sure that they want to invest the money yet. There have been reports that the minis are a bit hit-or-miss formula wise but, personally, I haven’t had that issue yet!

It’s that time of the year again – holiday releases are coming. I’ve been keeping an eye on some of these launches and, while some brands have slacked off a little in 2020 (understandable given how the pandemic has impacted everything), there are still a lot of great ones! From celebratory eyeshadow palettes to brilliant skincare sets – there’s so much to choose from.
It would be exhaustive to include absolutely everything, so this article mostly features things that I’m personally interested in trying or think would be a great gift option. Most, if not all, of these will be beauty related and available either in Australian stockists or online – all information which you will find here, of course.
Please note that this list is also being updated as new announcements are made so let me know if there’s a brand or release you think I should add in!
Now let’s start shopping!

Hydration is so important, but it is also something a lot of people seem confused about. I’ve had a surprising number of people confess that they don’t actually have a skincare routine and have never touched a moisturiser in their life: usually because they feel their skin is already oily or feel that face creams are too heavy.
So for today’s post, I wanted to do more than just write a review. Today, I want to unpack the LaneigeWater Bank Collection and give my recommendations for when to use them. There are recommended skin types, but I’d like to discuss what the differences are between them, as well as giving suggestions for seasonal suitabilities.
