YesStyle TOP 10 Must-Try Korean Beauty Box Unboxing + Mini Reviews!

 Hello!  Before August ends, I will end the month with an unboxing post! :)  A while ago I was shopping on the yesstyle website and noticed a section "exclusive to bloggers".  I thought oh, "let's just click it and see what it is."  Haha.  It lead to a page that gives bloggers a chance to win a free Beauty Box of Yesstyle's Top 10 beauty picks!  Pretty cool.  You guys know I love Kbeauty so I filled out the form and got picked to review a box!  Lucky. >o<

Without further ado, let's start unboxing! ^o^

 It came in a pretty and cute mint colored box with cute makeup illustrations.  Definitely keeping this!

 Ah!  Oh my gosh!  This box is seriously filled up to the top!

In this box is of course 10 Korean beauty products:
  - Berrisom Oops Tint Cheek Cushion in #02 Cream Peach
  - Berrisom Oops My Lip Tint in Virgin Red
  - MACQUEEN Creamy Lip Tint in #01 Light Pink
  - Etude House Color My Brow 9ml in #04 Natural Brown

Since there are only two skincare products, let's start off with those first. :)

First up we have the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask.  This lip mask helps dissolve dead skin cells while you are sleeping, making it look younger and plumper.  It is packed with Berry Mix Complex, Vitamin C and antioxidant-packed berry ingredients to make the lips firmer, while hyaluronic acid helps in moisture absorption overnight.

Sounds pretty awesome!  I haven't tried this product yet but I think I'm going to like it because of the amazing reviews it has on the site and because my lips are on the dry side as of right now!  I always have to change my lip balms during the seasons or else my lips will be super dry!  Is that just me or does anyone else changes their lip balms during the seasons???

I know that these Tony Moly I'm Real Sheet Masks are super popular but surprisingly I never tried them before!  But I have tried a lot of lemon ingredient sheet masks because I'm all about that brightening effect!

Something that I have used before, Etude House Collagen Eye Patch.  I love eye patches!  These patches will moisturize and brighten up the dark panda eyes that I have due to watching k-dramas or reading manga all night!  Will be using this later today since it's currently 1:00am and my first day of college starts today at 9:30am!  So nervous, can't sleep! >_<

Lastly for skincare, we have the TOSOWOONG Blackhead & Sebum Out Nose Pack 8pcs.  These nose strips are made with charcoal, ash, allantoin, licorice extract and Morocco lava clay for easy removal of blackheads, sebum and deep pore cleansing.

I've used this nose strip about 2 times without exfoliating and it picks up a decent amount of blackheads, a bit of whiteheads and little sebaceous filaments.  It also has a strong charcoal scent that lingers.  Not a fan but it still works good. :)

Probably, one of thee most hyped Korean product of all time is the Berrisom Oops My Lip Tint Packs.  I have a ton of these lip tints and they are fun but I don't use them everyday because on my lips they are a bit drying.  I do have the whole collection, two back ups of each color so I wasn't too excited to have this product.  I'll gift this one to my little sister, she LOVES these lip tints.  She'll come to my room everyday to put these on!  Haha, so cute just thinking about it.  I did do a review on these lip tints last year.  Click here to read the review!

I love Etude House products and know that their Precious Mineral cushion is a best seller.  I believe this is the same formula but in a tube form.

Product Description:
"This Double Layer Cover formula ensures this BB cream covers imperfections and creates a more even skin tone. The triple-action formula moisturizes, protects and whitens with the help of SPF 30, while the silky fluid spreads evenly and smoothly on skin for a flawless texture."

I've been using this bb cream ever since school started.  It has a dewy finish that makes the skin look healthy and glowy.  It also has amazing coverage for a bb cream!  It's definitely one of my go-to bb creams as of now. :)

Next up we have a product from Beauty People, it's their 10 Seconds Auto Pencil Eyeliner and I have this in the shade Diamond Black.  I haven't tried this liner but it claims to be long wearing and smudge proof.

Another item from Berrisom, Oops Tint Cheek Cushion.  I received the shade #02 Cream Peach.

Product Description:
Lightweight emulsion-type blusher with built-in cushion applicator glides on skin easily for a flawless finish. Enriched with extracts from 15 herbs and flowers.

On the back of the box it shows you ways on how to apply the blush.

For product to come out, slightly press on the tube to allow the product to show on the cushion.  I seriously have too many peachy blushes but I can never have enough of them!  Haha.  I do like the look of cream blushers more than powder blushes because they have a more natural look.  It makes you look like you're blushing from within.

I remember wanting to have this particular Etude House Color My Brow shade in #04 Natural Brown when my hair had a blonde balayage!  I absolutely can not finish my brows without setting them with a brow mascara.  My natural brow hair is black and when foundation or bb cream is placed on top, I have grey hairs and it's such a displeasing sight to me!!!

After finally trying out this product, I can see why it's one of Etude House's best selling products!  It tints the brow hairs very well and doesn't harden or clump the hairs.  The brush also coats the hairs nicely and isn't too large, which means less room for mistakes. :)  This shade is obviously too light for me, since my hair is currently black but I would buy the product myself when I run out of my current brow gel!  Love the formula and awesome price!  Highly recommend this product!

I've never tried anything from Macqueen nor even heard of the brand but when I was shopping online,  I came across the lip tint series and they were on sale for around $3-4!  I decided to pass since I was on a budget but I'm super glad to see this MACQUEEN Creamy Lip Tint included in this box!  You guys know I'm all about testing out lip products!  

So, this product is actually called Cushion Tint Lip & Cheek.  It claims to be a smudge-free lip tint add delicious colors to your lips, giving them a moisturized, glossy look.  The tapered sponge applicator (I love these types of applicators!) allows precise application.

I was super excited to get this color because on the website it shows that it's a dusty mauvey pink but when swatched in real life it's actually a light baby pink with purple and blue undertones.  In different lighting I feel like it sometimes look light a light lilac color.   Nonetheless, it's still a cute shade. The applicator is amazing!  I'm in love with it!  It's super easy to fill in the lips without making a huge mess.  The formula is lightweight and feels comfortable on the lips and cheeks.  It has sort of a velvet texture with a satin finish.  I do like this product and will continue using it.  I'll probably get more shades once they're on sale again!  You can never go wrong with multi-use products!
