Shop Feature: W2Beauty + Haul and First Impressions

Hello Pinay Beauties! How are you doing today? I just wanted to share with you this quick post about W2Beauty and some of the items that I receive from the very generous and pretty Alice.
What is W2Beauty?
W2Beauty stands for "Welcome to Beauty." It has a selection of over 10,000 Korean skincare and makeup products, all at  the most reasonable price.

What makes W2Beauty different from other online Korean cosmetic shops?
W2Beauty's mission: to give the people from around the world the same shopping experience as if they were in Korea, which means low prices, good services and good products! They wanted to make people excited whenever they visit their website. Making customers happy and satisfied is their utmost priority. They also offer free shipping and offer quite a wide range of brands and products so that customers have more choices.

If you are following me through my social media sites, you know that for the past few weeks I have been gushing about Pony's Beauty Diary. Hye-Min Park is an awesome Korean makeup artist and I have learned so much about her. I noticed too that she uses a lot of staples in her makeup tutorials, which means that they really work so I decided to browse the web and look for sellers of Korean products, specifically Innisfree. That is when I stumbled upon W2Beauty.

I was at awe on how much products they carry on their site, and I contacted the lovely owner Alice for their sponsorship program. She was very kind and sweet and I was super blessed because she asked me to pick a couple products to try out and I received in less than 2 weeks.
Let me just share with you this Korean products that I got:

Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder
I chose this because of Pony. She uses this to control the oil on her T-zone area. I love the matte packaging and of course how well sealed the product is. I haven't really used it yet, but I detect the smell of mint on this, which means it cools down the face. I will update you guys once I have tried and tested this product.

Innisfree Eco Beauty Tool Make-Up Air Magic Puff
I have seen this from a lot of Pony's video and she uses this to blend her CC or BB Cream and it looks really flawless so I know i have to try it. The material seems to be the same as the blender sponges, and it feels really really soft on the skin. It may be a bit traditional, but I am inlove with this puff.

The Faceshop Lovely ME:EX You and Face Blusher in Pink Glow
I am in the hunt for a good highlighter. In all honesty, because I have oily skin I really thought that I do not need a highlighter, but a very subtle highlight can make a huge difference on how fresh and flawless you can look. I love this highlighter because it may look scary at the pan, but it is actually not too white nor too pink. Here's some swatch:
These shots were taken as I move my hand to show you how it looks like when it hits the lights. The full effect of the highlighter can be seen on the 3rd photo. I have been using this highlighter on the tops of my cheeks as well as on my cupid's bow and it really gives such a youthful glow.

Nature Republic Auto Eyebrow Pencil in #3
I have been using this eyebrow pencil non-stop since I got it. I love how short and easy it is to control. The texture is not too waxy but it stays on the whole day, even without setting it with a brow gel or powder.

Etude House Secret Eyelash in #4
The last item I picked up is this eyelashes from Etude House. This is my first time to try their eyelashes, but I love how cute the packaging is and that it comes with a glue. The lashes look natural yet adds a lot of volume and length, and although the band is a bit thick, I think it is very workable and can easily be concealed by eyeliner.

She also sent me some samples which I really, really appreciate.
Etude House Heart 5 Berry Complex Face Mask, Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence, Etude House Collagen Moistfull Cream and Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit

I am really happy with all the items I got, its like an early Christmas present from my very gorgeous Santa Alice. ;)

    Hello! I think it is free shipping pero if you want a tracking number you will have to pay din. Her email is [email protected] As for me, I didn't go to the post office, pero if ever that is the case, you will receive a notice from your post office, you will have to go there to pick up your item. That's when you pay for the fee.
