YesStyle Korean Beauty Sample Box Review - Paint The Town Chic

YesStyle Korean Beauty Sample Box Review

For all my subscription box loving friends, this post is for you!  I recently received a YesStyle Sample Box full of products from popular Korean brands (click here to see everything I received!)  It was filled with a mix of cosmetic and skincare samples, including some full sized items, all packaged in the cutest box!  
Let's start off with the skincare samples in my box.  All three were from brands that I was not familiar with!

1.) TonyMoly I'mReal Makgeolli Mask Sheet
Mask sheets are definitely on trend right now, but I think they are an acquired taste!  I personally have a love hate-relationship with them.  I love how my skin feels after using them, but hate the feeling of having them on.  This Makgeolli Mask helps with purifying skin through a three layer pulp sheet mask.  I'm always up for trying new items, so I'm definitely looking forward to trying this mask!  After browsing on the site, looks like this line has a variety of masks for different skin issues as well as many other beauty and skincare products.

2.) Tosowoong Black Head Nose Pack
I'm always looking for products to help get rid of blackheads, but I've never tried strips before.  These strips caught my attention because of a particular ingredient - charcoal.  Have I mentioned how much I love charcoal beauty products?  These have received great reviews, so I'm excited to try them.

3.) Etude House Collagen Eye Patch
I'm fortunate that I don't have dark circles under my eyes, but I can always use a pick-me-up to relax and freshen the eye area.  These patches are soaked in collagen, so it's recommended to apply the patches and lay down for 15-20 minutes.  I'll be trying this next weekend!
Next are the lip samples.  All three were items that I couldn't wait to try.

4.) Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask
Laneige is the only brand I recognized in this box; it seems to be a subscription box staple as of late, but I'm not complaining.  I love the idea behind this Lip Mask.  Apply liberally at night and it removes dead cells and leaves lips so smooth!  This has a nice berry scent.  I used it last night and it did lessen my chapped lips.  I think I have to keep using this to experience the full effects.

5.) Macqueen Cushion Tint Lip and Cheek in Magic
I used this tint on my lips and loved it.  This soft pink shade left a hint of rosy color.  The finish had a matte feel and was long lasting without drying my lips.  This is a great lip color for everyday use.  I also liked this bottle!  I'll have to try it as a cheek tint next!

6.) Oops My Lip Tint in Pure Pink
Now this is a pretty cool product.  You apply the lip tint on your lips for 5-10 minutes (don't forget to apply lip liner first) and wait for it to dry.  Once the tint is dry, you gently peel it off.  Top off with some gloss and you'll have a semi-permanent lip tint that doesn't smudge.  I'll have to report back on this!
Finally are the the other makeup items.  Overall a well balanced mix of products!

7.) Etude House Color My Brows in Rich Brown
This dark brown shade is slightly lighter than my natural color, but I will definitely try this to definite my brows.  The product is supposed to fill in as well as keep brows in place!

8.) Beauty People Gel Eye Liner in Diamond Beige
This was a pretty gold eyeliner that's great for brightening eyes!  Once the eyeliner sets, there is no smudging, which is great.  I would love this in black!

9.) Etude House BB Cream in Light Beige
This was the one product that I wasn't a fan of.  The product blended in, however I could have used a darker tint for my skintone.  Aside from the shade not matching, I felt that it actually made my skin look dull.  It does have a nice, light scent.

10.) Berrisom Oops Tint Cheek Cushion in Sugar Pink
I liked this blush!  Just dab the brush onto your cheeks, and build the color if needed.  However I thought this product was hard to apply.  I really had to press into my skin.  It also may just be that this shade was too light for my medium skintone, so this would work great for lighter skintones!

I really loved going through my Sample Box.  YesStyle offer this Sample Box on their site, which is a similar concept to the mystery box I received.  Each box contains tens samples; some which may be full sized!  From what I see online, samples do vary and they are random.  As someone who loves trying new products from all over the world, this was the perfect way to sample new brands at a bargain!  Let me know if you've tried any of these products!
