Hello my dearest readers! Happy new year to all of you! I know I’m a bit late for a roundup of last year, but I didn’t want to start into 2015 with simply a new review, which is why I decided to show you my favourite 20 asian cosmetics products which I reviewed in 2014. It was quite difficult to decide because I have quite a few products I liked last year, but I could shorten it to 20 products, including makeup, skincare, nails, masks and even a hair product. I still have some products I bought last year, but I didn’t review them, and I decided to not include them into my top 20 of 2014, but rather save them for this year, after I did the reviews :) Here is my selection of products:
I’ll start off with my favourite makeup products last year being the following:
Belleme Cosmetics Get your Crayon in “Bad Girl”: This lip crayon had a burgundy color and was one of my favourite lip crayons I used last year. the color is very pretty and I love the simplicity of the design of Belleme products. They look pretty and simple, without being too mature. >> Read my review here <<
Innisfree Color Glow Lipstick: I know that Innisfree already has an improved version of this lipstick called Innifree Creammellow Lipstick, and I already bought two lipsticks of the new ones and I love them (more than the Color Glow ones), but nevertheless I have to point out how much I adored and still love using the Color Glow Lipsticks…the colors are beautiful and pigmented and the lipsticks feel not drying at all. >>Read my review here <<
Aritaum World Glam Coating Tint in “Shanghai”: A beautiful and bright red color which looks so pretty on the lips. This tint is quite long lasting and has a smooth texture. The scent and taste is also pleasant and I’m carrying this tint in my handbag most of the time. >> Read my review here <<
Pony X Memebox Eyeshadow Palette: Here is a more recently reviewed product which I love using, although I rarely use eyeshadows. This palette made me overcome my laziness of applying eyeshadow – I still dont use eyeshadow daily, but now I’m using some on the weekends at least :D The palette contains some nice natural shades and has matte and shimmery eyeshadows. >> Read my review here <<
Missha Magic Cushion Case: This D.I.Y. cushion case is awesome and I’m loving it! I’m using it daily since I bought it and it is fun to mix and match your own BB cream (or CC cream) in this case and helps me to use up some of my not suitable BB/CC creams, too. >> Read my review here <<.
Etude House Princess Happy Ending Belle Rose Cheek Blusher: Apart from the packaging which is georgeous (it is Disney and princesses…what else to say?!) the color of this rosegold blush is beautiful! The rose shaped form of the blush even adds more beauty to this! >> Read my review here <<
Skinfood Rose Essence Soft Cream Blusher: Again, lovely packaging and a matte drying cream blush with rose scent! I love the scent so much ♥ >>Read my review here <<
Now, let’s take a look at some nail products:
Etude House Sweet Idea Bunny Nails: The idea of this bunny nail set is really cute and I also love it, that one bottle has a broad brush and the other one a fine one, which makes nail art easier. >> Read my review here <<
Innisfree Eco Peel Off Base Coat: Since I have this peel off coat I can use my glitter nail polishes more often without having to worry that I’ll spend a hard time to clean my nails again. >> Read my review here <<
Etude House Help My Finger Quick Dry Drop: I don’t know why I didn’t try a quick drying drop for nail polishes earlier…it made my life so much more convenient since I’m owning this. I can only recommend you this kind of product if you love using nail polish! >> Read my review here <<
My favourite skincare products 2014 were these:
Secret Key Snow White Cream: I used this creamy cream daily and it is almost empty now :D It has a nice scent and makes your skin look more even and silky. It is a nice primer for BB creams and really makes the skin less dull…additionally it has a beautiful packaging and a nice baby powder/ soapy scent. Worth every penny! >> Read my review here <<
Meishoku DET Clear Bright & Peel Peeling Gel: This japanese brand is not well-known, but I can recommend you to try this peeling jelly if you love peeling jellies anyways. It is cheap, can be used in the shower and makes the skin super smooth. >> Read my review here <<
Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil: I’m in love with this cleansing oil from the moment I first tried it. It cleans away makeup reliably and it smells of sweetened black tea to me..moreover my skin feels still moisturized and not drying after using it…great for colder seasons and people with dry skin! >> Read my review here <<
The Face Shop Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Face Butter: This deeply moisturizing formula convinced me totally…it made my dry skin feel perfectly moisturized and the scent of the Mango Seed Line is heavenly, too. I have to many facial creams at the moment, otherwise I would have repurchased it already! >> Read my review here <<
Additionally to the skincare products mentioned above I have some mask recomendations for you, too:
Beyond The God of Patches Sheet Masks: Adoarably designed sheet masks which do a nice job in moisturizing. >> Read my review here <<
Care Lab Powerful Pudding Mask: This is a fun mask feeling like jelly and afterwards hardening on your face like a hydrogel mask. The idea is great and the packaging design cute. >> Read my review here <<
ONL Saladit Essential Juice Sheet Masks: There is a nice selection of vegetable masks here and each targets another skin concern. I found that some of them were really nice masks so they are definitively worth a try although not well known. >> Read my review here <<
Skinfood Strawberry Bkack Sugar Wash Off Mask: I love the Skinfood Packs and Masks and this one has a great scent (strawberry) and makes your skin smooth by being gentle to it on the same time. >> Read my review here <<
Wish Formula Panda Eye Essence Mask: Eye masks can be very relaxing and these are additionally boosted up with ferment extract and vitamin C… I enjoyed using these a lot! >> Read my review here <<
And last but not least my favourite hair care product from 2014:
Damoae Therapy Shampoo: I’m not a fan of herbal scents, but this shampoo works great! It makes your hair feel great and healthy and gives it a nice shine. It is pricey though, but if you have a look at my before and after pictures this shampoo really worked for me and made my hair stronger and nicer. >> Read my review here <<
These were my 20 favourite products of 2014! I hope you enjoyed the post and I’m looking forward to present you many new posts in 2015! There will be some exciting ones right ahead and I would be more than happy if you continue to read Berries in the Snow for 2015!
Wow this post has pointed out to me just how many products there are in the asian beauty industry. I think I have only tried 2-3 products on your list! Regretting not picking up the peeling polish and Innisfree lipstick in Korea D:
I’m always surprised myself how many brands there are I didn’t try yet! :D I hope I will have the time to try some more and also finally be able to find my all time favourites :D
LAVEN!!! you are going to make me go broke! >_< i want so many of the products that you mentioned. hehehe gotta start saving!
Chie | The Brown Eyed Fox
:D I’m sorry >_< I'm surprised myself to see how many different brands I already tried..and yet there are tons of products still on my wishlist ;_;
omg I tried a few of these products too!! I totally love the masks and the peel off coat you like too ♥ The nail polish is soo ncie for glitter polishes its so easy to get them off now only bummer is that they peel off accidently sometimes too and you got to reapply ㅠㅠ I really liked the Innisfree lipstick you mentioned too haha :D I might try out the etude house masks patch masks :3 ♥
Haha, that’s true about the peeling coat..but on the other side, I’d rather like to reapply than to have a hard time removing XD Thanks for commenting ♥
A bit little late, but thanks for this post. I like this kind of posts because help me to meet interesting products. In this case were the face masks.
Hope you are having a nice day!
Thank you ♥
