Uhhhhh wow, remember how I said a few posts ago that I usually don’t buy a lot of cosmetics? Well yeah, when I travel it all changes and I definitely buy a lot of cosmetics. I don’t do the buying in person though; I buy it all online and have it shipped to my house so it’s like Christmas or my birthday arrived early, except it’s from me (funnily enough I don’t give or receive many birthday or holiday presents).

Lip balm is probably my weakness.
I have a jar chock full of lip balms sitting next to me on my desk, and I have a couple more scattered throughout my bags. I’m fully aware that if I stuck to using just one, I’m not going to finish it anytime soon. But I’m also in denial that I’m hoarding lip balms, so there’s that. Did I mention lip balm is probably my weakness?
Does the title sound like it could be the name of a band?
If there’s one thing that made the biggest difference in my skincare, it would be Korean sheet masks. I say specifically Korean sheet masks – maybe it’s because I’m Asian and I think North American companies just don’t do them as well. Plus, they usually cost an arm and a leg (I’m looking at you, Sephora) considering that skincare is something that you need to use consistently to see results. I’ve been using sheet masks routinely for half a year now (…about the same amount of time between this post and the last one), and I can really see and feel a difference in my skin – it’s plumper, smoother, and hydrated. I’ve rounded up my favorite masks – I love them so much that I actually feel nervous when I’m down to the last one!
I don’t do beauty subscriptions. I used to in the past, and I found them to be a waste of money. I won’t lie though, it was really exciting at first! I liked getting a range of new products to try out. But I quickly found that I wasn’t even interested in the products to begin with, and most of them would lay unused. I think I just know what I like – I mean, my base makeup and skincare has barely changed in three years, and the only thing that does is my eye makeup and lipstick.
