Korean Makeup and US Makeup are on opposite ends of the spectrum. They’re completely different! Kon! You have heavy contour, baking, intense highlight and so on. To keep it short and sweet, Korean makeup is a lot simpler in terms of application.
I taught myself to do makeup based on the western trends (basically the complicated version LOL). I have however, tried to venture into Korean Makeup. It was a complete different transition and it was very odd for me at first. I didn’t think it looked good on my face, I felt insecure without my heavy coverage and my contour. With that said, I always loved Asian products though. I am Asian, and the formula on Asian products are just a better fit for my skin type. What I love the most about Asian products is most of them actually have skin benefits as well and are not just purely cosmetic.
Last year, my mom and I went to Korea and of course I had to go on a shopping spree! I couldn’t help myself. Our hotel was right across Myeong-dong Street, right smack in the center of the well known shopping district where every Asian makeup and skincare brand you can think of was situated. Nowadays, I am slowly appreciating Asian beauty standards more and more. Less products, easy application and time saving. Which leads me to today’s product review…
This product was very new to me. I am used to the traditional powder shadows and I’m not even a fan of cream eyeshadows unless I’m gonna use it as a base. So this jelly pot was completely out of my comfort zone. but I really wanted to give it a shot. Let me tell you more about the product…

When I swatched these products I was so surprised myself to find out that these are in fact BUDGE-PROOF! Incredibly long wearing! I kid you not. However it does get some getting used-to. If you’re like me and you’re used to blending numerous shades, applying just one shadow seems quite odd in the beginning. I started out using this just as a base but now that I am slowly getting into more quick and easy makeup looks I have learned to appreciate just applying this and buffing it out. It gives you an incredible eye makeup look in no time at all! Definitely a must have for those women on the go but what to look fabulous!
And that’s pretty much it!
