South Korea is undeniably the largest beauty market worldwide. They have sold $13 billion worth of cosmetics and skincare in 2017 alone.
Why you may ask, are Korean beauty products becoming so popular? Well, they use a more natural method to skincare, with ingredients like bee venom, maple tree sap, and snail mucin. These are all known to treat and improve skin from within.
Their makeup, as well, doesn’t neglect to specialize in skincare, creating well-hydrated and healthy skin.
It’s really no wonder that people are switching to Korean makeup and skincare products. Their products are straight-to-the-point, budget-friendly, and innovative.
All of the now-essential beauty staples mentioned below, BB cream, mascara, mineral powder, cushion compact, and lip pigments are definitely worth obsessing over.
Check out some of my top picks which you should include in your next beauty shopping spree:
3CE Back To Baby BB Cream
Who doesn’t desire baby smooth skin? If you want flawless, dewy, perfected skin, then this product is for you. It’s achieved cult status due to its formula that delivers a simply dreamy complexion. Dewy coverage…need I say more?
Laneige Cushion Foundation
You may have heard of Laneige for their Water Science technology found in their sheet masks and moisturizers. But, Laneige isn’t just famous for their skincare line. You’ll find that the cushion foundation is one of their best-selling products. It conceals, hydrates, and protects your skin from the sun.
3CE Lip Pigments
Another 3CE product! This product has gathered a cult following for its bold colors. You’ll find every shade conceivable in their lip pigment line, from bright yellow to bold red. Its formula is super creamy and glides on without creasing. You can even use it as cheek tint if you’re lazy.
Fairy Drops Scandal Queen Waterproof Mascara
Anna Gardner, beauty blogger of TheAnnaEdit.com, loves this lash-boosting, long-wear, ultra-volumizing mascara, and I 100% agree.
It does everything you wish. It holds curls, defines, lengthens, and volumizes with just one coat! Who else is sold?
Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder
Innisfree is among South Korea’s most popular natural beauty brand. If you have oily skin, try this mineral powder. Take your pick between two of its forms: loose and pressed powder. Both work great for setting BB creams and foundation. You enjoy smooth skin and a natural glow that makes you appear like you’ve been photoshopped!
What’s great is that you can order these products that have been imported from the world’s beauty capital online. Wait a few days, and it’ll arrive right there at your doorstep!
