It’s certainly no secret that South Korea is dominating the skin care game all over the world. Their technology in both skincare and cosmetics is light years ahead, and globally, we really sat up and took notice last year as a surge of Korean beauty products came  pouring into the U.S. and stocked the shelves and world wide web.

Korean beauty heritage is steeped in natural ingredients passed down from generation to generation. This tradition continues today with formulations that tend to shun harsh chemicals and draw from the Earth instead.

I decided to do some investigating on a lipstick and eye shadow so welcome to Part I of our three part series on the Best of K-Beauty…

Hope Girl Milky Balm Lipstick

Overwhelmed by the myriad of choices in Korean lipsticks, I purchased HOPE GIRL MILKY BALM LIPSTICK in the shade “Pink Mauve” from a small Korean boutique in Sacramento, California. This one is a nude color yet these lipsticks come in 25 different shades. They are super creamy and comfortable to wear with a pleasant scent.

From the few times I’ve tried it, it lasted for at least 4 hours without having to reapply. I would definitely buy more of these in different shades. I can’t tell you how many people stop and ask me what lipstick I’m applying when I break out the gorgeous leopard print tube!

The cost? $22.00

Nature Republic Eco Crayon Eyes

This product line is a Korean favorite. NATURE REPUBLIC provides reasonably priced products to customers by finding the balance between quality and price in order for everybody to fully enjoy its products.

I purchased their Eco Crayon Eyes eye shadow stick. It is very creamy and easy to use without a messy crayon sharpener. It glides on your eye lids nicely, and the coverage is solid and even. It’s very handy when you are in a hurry to get your make up on, all you need for your eyes is this eye shadow in brown.

The cost? $7.99

Through NATURE REPUBLIC’S products and brand, people of the world will be able to enjoy the gift of nature. The company enjoys engaging with their customers and partners and continuously improves their products and experiences at their stores.

Enjoy the beauty and the benefits that K-Beauty has to offer. Make up and skin care has never been more fun!
