[REVIEWS + SWATCHES] 3rd Roseroseshop Haul (COSRX, Too Cool For School, MISSHA & more)

Yesssss, it is my third haul from Roseroseshop! Roseroseshop is currently my number one choice when it comes to buying Korean beauty products. They offer cheaper prices compared to other Korean beauty onlinestores. The only con is that their shipping fee are not free, except for Mizon products. Their shipping fee is calculated according to the weight of the total items. So the more items you buy, the more expensive the shipping fee is and the second con is probably only a few samples were given Now lets head over to the haul!

My mom wanted to restock her skincare products, so she wanted to try buying skincare online. She allowed me to add in a few products that I want. In this haul, I am going to exclude my mom's stuffs and only talk about the stuffs that I got for myself. Thank you, mom!♥

From left to right top row;
1. PETITEE Dry Essence Foot Pack - USD0.80 each
2. COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch - USD2.50

2. COSRX AHA/BHA Whitehead Power Liquid
3. COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid
4. COSRX Advanced Snail Mucin 96 Power Essence
5. COSRX Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence
I was sooo happy to receive samples by the brand COSRX because I am eager to try out their products! Infact, I have already tried all of the skincare samples (except for the nose strip) and some of them were good!

Here are my short reviews about the samples:
COSRX AHA/BHA Whitehead Power Liquid - I am not sure about the effects for this one so I cannot give an accurate review, but the product really moisturizes the skin well.
COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid - only after one use, it really removes the blackhead out from the pores!
COSRX Advanced Snail Mucin 96 Power Essence - the texture of this one is really gooey, exactly like a snail mucin! But it really moisturizes the skin.
COSRX Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence - I am loving this one the most. It fades post-acne marks really fast even after a few uses! It whitens the face too. I am thinking of purchasing this one in the future.


Roseroseshop was having an event where they give away COSRX planner when you purchase any COSRX products!

The planner is so cute! I love the 'Listen To Your Voice' wording. The wordings are in gold in real life and the planner is in a pretty frosty light pink color. The number '16' must meant by '2016'. The planner might be a use when college reopens *gasps at the thought of going back to college*

The inside of the planner just contains grids where you can note down any important dates/appointments/activities during the month

The gift comes with a sticker too! Look how cute it is!^-^

Lastly, the gift comes with COSRX product catalog.

COSRX was founded in 2002, I'd never heard of them until recently!
Thank you Roseroseshop x COSRX for the gift!

MISSHA Mini Lip Brush

I love to apply lipsticks, so I thought I need a couple of lip brushes.
The lip brushes are made out of synthetic hair.
Honestly, I did not expect the lip brushes to be this small!!!!!
On my palm for scale
I tried to use it but the grip is kind of uncomfortable since it is small and short. I have a feeling that I might easily lose them. I did not enjoy the experience of using them to be honest.
The brush tip gets pointy when I 'technically wet them with a lipstick'. The application of using the brush does not come out pretty too. Its such a shame, I did know that it would turn out this way. Oh well~

RiRe Luxe Auto Gel Eyeliner No.3 Rich Brown

This product was featured in one of Memebox's subscriptions. I heard that its good so I decided to try it out.
I am upset about this case. The product will expire in June 2016, the product expires 6 months after opening, I got it only on February 2016 so I get to use them for 4 months only. Frankly I will still use it even if the expiry date passes, providing if the product is still working well I hope Roseroseshop can provide me products with the latest manufacturing date next time.

Heres the picture of the actual eyeliner.

I like how sophisticated the box looks. The eyeliner packaging itself looks only normal to me.

The sharpener is at the one end of the eyeliner.

The eyeliner is stubby because I've used it before photographing. When I first opened the eyeliner from its cap, 1/3 of the lead came out, luckily I managed to tuck them back into the packaging and resolved the problem. Got some bad impression during the moment.

After a couple of swipes during the first use. The color does not come out well during the first time. It does not really have a gel consistency nor crayon-ish. Hence, it has a dry texture and not so smooth. However, it does not smudge at all! It is waterproof too. I tried to erase it with water but I can't, unless with a makeup remover.

After the eyeliner is getting used, the color shows up well even after one swipe. Rich dark brown color with shimmers~

I did an experiment where I left a swipe of the eyeliner on my wrist overnight. The above picture is the result. I must say that it stays on for long.

The product works okay on the skin but when applied on the upper lash line, I felt a bit of itchy sensation. Probably because the eyeliner has a dry/non-smooth texture so it is drags the delicate upper lash skin.

I love how the eyeliner is not smuge-able, waterproof and long lasting, but I do not like the experience when I applied them on my upper lash line. The texture too is not suitable for the waterline. I need to look for a better auto gel eyeliner that is smooth, glides on easily, waterproof and long lasting. I am not going to repurchase RiRe Luxe Auto Gel Eyeliner.

Too Cool For School Artclass by Rodin

Finally, the most raved product on the internet and used by many many beauty/Asian Youtubers such as Soothing Sista, SINNIM, Jody Blog, Jenn Im, MeejMuse & many more! The rave and my favorite Youtubers are the reason why I bought this amazing highlighting/shading/contour kit. This product is my most favorite purchase from the haul! I was soooo stocked to try it out and also feeling happy that I finally own one after being in my wishlist for quite some time!
I love the recycled paper feel of the box. In fact, I love recycled packaging! There are 2 tips on how to use the shading kit as stated on the back box packaging;
1. Gently brush off the three mixed colors across the overall face line to give shades
2. Use colors separately for designing your face to accentuate your facial features including nose and hair line etc.
The kit lasts 12 months after opening.
I cut open the box to find out the story of TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL By Rodin
This is the story~
At first, the kit(pictured above) is covered with a recycled paper. I did not get to take photo of it because I accidentally torn it.
'Too Cool For School Art Class By Rodin Shading'
The kit consists of a compact mirror and three colors of the shading kit itself. I hoped that the kit comes with a brush, but it didn't. So I have to use my own brush to pick up the colors. The shading colors are separated from the mirror by a thin plastic cover at first which I threw it away later.
1 - light beige
2 - light brown
3 - medium brown
I personally think that the colors are international that suit many skin tones.

Swatches of the three shading colors. The texture is powdery but smooth. I experience no fall outs on my face, the shading kit really contours the face well providing if you use the correct brush. The contours come out light and not heavy. If you are more into heavy contouring, then I suggest to grab a contouring stick, cream contouring or contouring shadows that shows up strong on the face. If you like soft and light contouring, then this product is for you! I loveeeeeee this product and will definitely purchasing!

I will probably write separate reviews for the remaining products (COSRX nose strip and acne patch and PETITFEE foot mask) and maybe I will do a separate post on how I operate the shading kit and lip brush on my face. So please stay tuned and thank you for reading!

  1. Hi Dear friend,

    Take a look at pictures online or in magazine for faces similar to yours and see what kinds of eyebrows match well. Pencil thin lines above large, wide eyes doesn't look very natural. You also might be surprised how little trimming and shaping is actually needed. See more: mink eyelash extensions

    You are most welcome

[REVIEW|FIRST IMPRESSION] April Skin Magic Snow Cushion (Black) SPF50 PA+++ #23 Natural Beige

BB Cosmetic is a Korean based onlinestore that carries brand such as 3CE, Banilla Co., Etude House, COSRX and many more. They often have amazing deals for up to 30% on select brands (psssstt they are currently having sales on Elizavecca, The Face Shop and Benton products!!!!) and offers FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE.
*Main product below is provided to me by BB Cosmetic. My review do not affect the fact that product is sponsored. April Skin Magic Snow Cushion (Black) SPF50 PA+++ #23 Natural Beige Review We all have seen the most popular April Skin Magic Snow Cushion in the past few months, and its popularity is still ongoing until now. I am seeing their promotional pictures and videos literally everywhere, the product is claiming to provide a full coverage with just one layer. Immediate whitening, evening of skin tone and covering imperfections, who wouldn't want that? Of course, just like any other gullible person, I am intrigued by the promotional efforts and always eyeing on the cushio…

[REVIEW] Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm

Whiteheads, blackheads and pores are such a disturbance to the face! and their developments are just inevitable! If you are looking for a mild product that can improve the appearance of whiteheads and blackheads, continue reading down below! Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm I got the product from a local seller on Instagram. Her IG is naturecarebeauty The quoted actual price by the seller was $12. But I got it for $9 because there was a flash sale! It is stated that the images/texts on the product is printed with soy ink. I find it amusing because I never knew that soy ink can be used for printing! The ink seems to have a good quality too. The box is like made out of recycled paper. I really like the save-the-environment concept. English description, instructions and ingredients of the product. How I wish I can translate this part for you guys At first, I thought the product is a makeup base to cover the pores...but it isn't. It is a massage balm to extract the whitehea…

Tiam My Signature C-Source Review | Courtesy Tiam (sister company of Cosrx!)

Annyeong, Everyone~ Fasting month/Ramadhan is coming to an end soon omg! I feel like this year is the fastest Ramadhan month that I am going through. Time. Flies. So. Fast.

Do you guys remember the popular OST C20 Vitamin C serum? If you never heard of it before you can check out my existing review on the product by clicking on the link below: OST Original Pure Vitamin C20 Serum Review
I loved that product, I considered it as my HOLY GRAIL and I am happy to be able to use it again this year!
This Tiam My Signature C-Source is the renewed version of the OST Original Pure Vitamin C20 Serum. This is because the brand OST C20 is rebranded to TIAM. As for the product, ONLY the product name has been changed while the ingredients and everything else stayed the same.

Disclaimer: I received this product from TIAM in exchange for my honest review.

Texts on the box still looks the same except for the name.

Same old ingredients~
Water, Ascorbic Acid, Alcohol, Sodium Lactate, Butylene Glycol, Glucose,…
