[Review] Missha M SUPER BLACK Brush Pen Liner

If you're reading this right now, I'm guessing you've tried (or heard of) the Dollywink liquid liners.

Today's review will be on a similar product! It's Missha's "M SUPER BLACK brush penliner". Have you ever used a pen liner like this?






Description 


Pictures taken from Missha.ca


Packaging - The product comes in beautiful, classy packaging. It's royal blue with gold letters and accents on it, really pretty! Other than the name of the product, the actual pen doesn't offer any information (expiration date, etc) - you'll have to get that from the box itself. The cap is surprising secure and tight, and opens and shuts with a spring to it.


Brush - As for the brush itself - it's quite thick (thicker than Dollywink's), but the fine tip at the end allows you to create a super thin liner look, if desired. It's flexible, but still offers ease when applying. I personally find regular liquid liners (not in pen/brush) super hard to apply because of the flimsy brush.


Colour - The colour itself is a dark, intense black.


*Important note - This product does not claim to be waterproof.


Size 
The liner has 0.6g of product. The pen is similar to Dollywink's size (12.8cm).


Price 
This product currently sells for $15.99 on Missha.ca


Swatches 

Thick and thin lines



Rub test!


I tried rubbing the top half of the liner off - but it barely moved. The skin around my hands got quite red after (thats how much force I used)! It's safe to say that this liner is solid, strong and won't rub off. Bravo!



Waterproof?

*Important - This product never claims to be waterproof. It instead claims that the "super black polymer provides long lasting benefits against water, sweat and sebum - unless rubbing it."

This is a product that contains "mild pigments for delicate eye area", and thus the eyeliner is easily removed by steeping and rubbing with water.


When I had running water over the swatch, it didn't move at all. It does live up to the claim that it's waterproof (unless rubbed). The times I wore it, it never rubbed off on me as well, and I have oily eyelids.


This is what happens when I swiped my wet hand (not too forcefully) 3-4 times. It's very easy to remove. It's safe to say that if you use a cotton pad or Q-tip to remove your liner, all the pigment will be easily removed.



My experience

I really believe that everyone should have at least 2 types of favourite liners - waterproof and non-waterproof. It's nice to have both for different days. You may need a solid, iron-like, waterproof liner for those days you know you'll get teary.

But for those days when you want to take off your makeup easily, with a wipe or some water; you'll need that other one.

However, I never really had a "HG" non-waterproof eyeliner before. This is because all the ones I tried were so... shoddy. Even if it wasn't waterproof, they'd completely fail the rub test.

SO YES. I have found my other HG liner! I'll wear this liner mostly in the fall/winter time, because I get insane allergies (hello, teary red eyes) in the spring/summer.

I really, really LOVE that this liner is so strong and stays on for the entire day with no flaking, etc. And at the end of the day, when I stumble home from a nightmare a late night lecture, I want my makeup off ASAP. No fiddling with oil-based removers, no extra nonsense like that. I want water + cotton pad = GONE. This liner offers me exactly that, and I love it dearly.

This is truly one of my favourite products from Missha! (And one of my most highly rated!)

Recommend? 

Yes, I would absolutely recommend this product - but this is for people who are looking for a non-waterproof, liquid eyeliner. I'd recommend anyone to have a non-waterproof, easily removable liner! The quality for price (for this product) is excellent; this is a quality liner. I paid a lot more for my past liners, so the $16 doesn't bother me much. Even dollywink eyeliners are more expensive than $16.
I'd strongly recommend this for anyone to try! Give it a try, and tell me how it goes! *u*

But if you're looking for a waterproof one; you're in the wrong place!

If you live in Toronto - an official "Missha" store just recently opened. They're currently still having promotions and lots of sales (I saw so many red tags when I went), so if I were you, drop on by! C:

If you live in elsewhere, Missha does have stores around the world - as well as online stores!




What about you?
Do you strictly use waterproof liners, or do you like "easily removable" ones?

[Review] Missha Super Aqua - Ultra Waterfull Cream

Hello, hello! 

I hope you're finding the Korean cosmetic reviews quite useful! I thought I'd take a little different route today - as adorable and awesome Korean cosmetics are, I'm sure you know that Korean skincare is just as popular (and awesome).

Today's review will be on Missha's "Ultra Waterfull Cream" from their Super Aqua line! I've been really interested in this product because of its beautiful packaging, and the fact that it looks similar to Laneige's moisture cream! Lovely thanks goes to Missha Canada.




I'm pretty sure you've heard of Missha before - it's a super popular Korean makeup and skincare brand. I haven't ever seen a Missha store here in Toronto though; whenever I wanted to buy my Missha products (like some of their skincare and makeup),  always had to buy it through Debbie (a Korean store in Pacific mall, or online).

Glad to say that I don't have to do that anymore! Did you know that an official Missha store just opened in Pacific mall?! I was walking around the mall and wanted to get my usual C+F masks from Debbie, but found a Missha store instead! The store looks so sleek and fancy compared to the old Debbie, hah. o.o They're in the midst of their grand opening right now, so there's promotions going on at the moment as well.

On to the review!

Korean cosmetics haul! [Tonymoly, Etude house, The Face Shop]

It's so hot in Toronto right now. You can feel the sun bearing holes into your back when you walk down the streets, I'm not even joking.

To add to the crazy factor - I don't have AC in my house

Because it's absolutely boiling inside the house, I always try to find ways to get the heck out and take advantage of AC in malls! Ahaha~ So that's exactly what I did yesterday, when I decided to go to Pacific mall.

I hadn't visited the Tonymoly store yet, so that was my #1 priority! I finally found it (it was beside the Amore Pacific store)






So anyways - Pmall. I went in empty handed, and I came out with this. 






Here's a list of what I got that day: 

1. 10 Tonymoly cucumber mask sheets
2. 10 Tonymoly pomegranate mask sheets (+2 Tonymoly snail mask sheets as a gift from store)
3. 10 C&F herb mask sheets
4. 10 C&F cucumber and green tea mask sheets

5. 3 The Face Shop nail polishes 
6. The Face Shop "pink cushion" blush
7. The Face Shop herb day lip and eye makeup remover tissues
8. [2] The Face Shop nail repair sheets (lemon and paraffin)
9. The Face Shop cotton pad box

10. [2] Tonymoly bunny bars (#3 apple, #4 cherry)
11. Tonymoly cooling eyes stick
12. [2] Missha hand creams 

13. Etude house juicy cocktail graduation nails (Princess Mary)
14. LOTS of samples





Masks 


Sorry if the packaging looks foggy - I had put them in the fridge (I always use my masks cold), and I took them out to take pictures! 


Tonymoly had a mask sale (10 masks for $10), so I went crazy. The shop girl gave me 2 snail masks for free as well, and said that they were a "hot selling" item right now. I don't doubt her at all - snail emulsion stuff has been a pretty big craze nowadays. 

I've never tried Tonymoly's masks before, so I hope they work well for me! ^____^


I also bought 20 C&F masks at "Debbie". It's a store that sells Missha, Tonymoly, Dr. Jart, etc! 

These masks are always on a "package deal". You buy 10 for $10. They're a regular purchase for me, I absolutely LOVE these masks. They work wonders on my skin, and make it look and feel amaaaazing. *___* I bought 10 herb, 5 cucumber, 5 green tea! 





The Face Shop


I've been to this shop so many times, the ajumma there recognizes me. I bought the above items, and the total price wasn't a lot at all - I think I paid around $12 for the above stuff. Still, she gave me SO many samples, I liked that a lot heheh. 





Random stuff 



These were just random stuff I bought.  Can you guess why I bought 2 more Tonymoly bunny bars, and 2 hand creams? ^___~ 

Anyways, I'm excited to try the Tonymoly fresh aqua cooling eyes stick! It looks pretty cool, and I got it for only $3! (It was on sale, ahaha) The Etude House nail set looks SO pretty as well! So excited, yayyyy! 

Well, that's my haul for this post! Whoohoo, I did go a little mask crazy...

By the way - if anyone lives in Toronto or goes to Pmall: "Debbie" is having a crazy sale right now! I just had to take some pictures and let you guys know!











What did you get on your latest haul? Have you tried these products before?
