Pretty in Pink - A Little Yesstyle Beauty Haul

Hi Lovelies! 

Just wanted to show you a little haul I recently ordered off Yesstyle ^^

If you take a close look, you may notice a certain theme? Well, yes most of the items are Etude House, but there's something else...


Do you know? Yup, all but one item is eye brows related! 

I am hating my brows so much at the moment - or rather the better word is struggling? I'm pretty bad at doing my brows, which is annoying because I need my brows to look great since I'm wearing minimal makeup looks lately. 

Out of the 7 days I do my brows, I'm probably only satisfied 3 out of 7 times. For some reason, every morning I do my brows, they tend to turn out differently shaped to the day/days before. It's kind of strange and kind of tragic, and I have no idea why it happens!

Ugh, but anyway, I figured maybe if I bought some brow related tools, it might help? 


I've seen this Etude House brow stencil floating around, and I finally decided to buy it since it's affordable, and since I'm not getting anywhere freestyling my brows :P

There are 3 different stencils in the kit - a natural curved, yet straight brow, a defined arched brow, and a very straight brow.


Although I like the very straight brow, I think the first stencil will suit my facial features the best. The stencil is made of floppy rubbery material, which is washable. You just line it up on your brow and fill in the shape with pencil or powder. 


Next up is the Etude House Flamingo Eyebrow Shaver. It is very cute how they made it look like a flamingo! I used to pluck, but not in recent years, as I found it discourages hair from growing back. Shaving is painless and quick, though you need to groom more often. 


The shaver looks kind of menacing now, lol. 

I've also heard that this type of shaver is good for creating a straighter eyebrow, which is my ultimate goal. I will see how the stencils go, and if it looks good, I may end up using the razor to straighten out my eyebrow arch 0.o



Real Like Eyebrow Pencil in brown was my next purchase. Truthfully I only bought it to get me over the limit for free shipping. 


I use Etude's brow pencil, but it might be good to try something new. This is slightly more expensive than the Etude pencil, and it has decent reviews on Yesstyle, so hopefully I'll like this.  


And lastly, for the non-brow related purchase - a packet of oil blotting paper~

I'm off to KL next week, so I expect I'll be needing this! 


I lost my other blotting papers, so I picked the Etude one as a replacement, because it's pink and cute :P 

So there we have it - my small, but pink and cute Yesstyle haul ^^

Thanks for reading. Are you good at doing your brows, lovelies? 

xoxo Tulip

  7. I feel your pain, I hate my eye brows so much as well and it took me forever to become at least partially happy with them! I started plucking them in a straighter shape and plucking more at the beginning, since my eyes are set near the nose bridge, to make my eye area look brighter. My boyfriend said I looked like kabuki actor the first time I did it, haha. Then I just paint them with eyebrow powder to fix the shape into a straight-ish line and I make them thicker, since they are naturally curved with an ugly angle and thin.
    The razor looks nice, I have a plucking roller, which is quite convenient for speeding up the pucking process - just roll a couple of times across the area and voila. :) And I'm looking forward to the review of the pencil :)

  10. I bought the eyebrow stencil myself the other day. Although I'm using them for shaping and not drawing haha. I also saw the razor but it kind of scared me, I just had this mental image of me walking around with no brows.

  11. Aaw I also completely suck at doing my brows, luckily for me, my eyebrows are naturally very sharp and not messy at all... the flamingo thingy is awesome and cute, but i pluck so imma pass that one, but I might be getting the stencils, they look awesome and foolproof <3

  12. Those eyebrow stencil have been on my mind for a very long time, i suck at doing my brows, they always look different, and i can't shape them with my brow pencil to save my life .-. i'm seriously thinking of getting those eyebrow stencil now ** they look really easy to use (and they could save me from my brow-problems) the razor is also really interesting, tho i'm scared of accidentally cutting off half of my brows, that thought is terrifying to me.

  13. Ooh nice haul, everything is so pink and girly :) I love yesstyle and the items they sell. I think the eyebrow stencil is an interesting piece, I should invest in one, since I'm not that good at drawing my own eyebrows :A: I'm going to go check them out now, thanks!

  16. Thanks, I hope these utensils help me out, because I'm pretty bad at filling them in too 0.o

  17. Don't worry, you're not the only one! ^.^

  18. The stencils will be reviewed, though I'm not sure when >.<

    ReplyDelete
  19. For functional products they are pretty to look at ^^

  20. I'm so envious of people with lovely natural brow shapes! I wonder if I had never started plucking my brows, and just cleaned below the brows if I would have a less thinner and arched shape >.<
    I haven't heard of a plucking roller before! Might need to check that out ^^

  21. I've only used them a few times, but it can be tricky to line it up evenly on both sides, seeing one of my brows is a bit higher than the other!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hehe, the first time I used them for drawing they came out quite fake looking! I'm still practising to get the right method.
    Haha! It's all in the little back and fourth hand movements to control how much to shave :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hehe, I wish my brows were naturally nicely shaped ^^
    The stencils take a bit of practice to correctly line up on your brows, but they've definitely helped me draw better shapes!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I wish I'd gotten the stencils earlier! They're not perfect - my favoured stencil gives me thicker brows than I would like, but I use them to shape the top and outer tail of my brows which is many times better than I could do without the stencil.
    Lol, I had thought that too with the razor! But it's all about making little back and fourth movements with the blade ^^

  25. I normally shop for shoes at Yesstyle, but they have a great beauty range too! The stencils may be of use helping you to figure out nice shapes for your brows, so do give it a go if you can ^^

  27. I like it a lot! It's very easy to use, and sharp - it shaves hairs quite easily as long as you hold it properly. I recommend it!
