It’s that time of year again, where I list out my future purchases in a continued attempt to focus on my priorities and curb impulse spending.


  1. Beauty of Joseon’s Dynasty Cream – as my main moisturizer after I finish Stratia’s Liquid Gold. The ingredients look great.
  2. Benton’s Fermentation Eye Cream – As a more affordable replacement to my current anti-aging eye cream, Drunk Elephant’s shaba eye complex.
  3. Kikumasamune’s Sake Skin Conditioner – This toner has arbutin, which my routine is currently lacking, and may be good for scalp care as well.
  4. Neogen’s Green Tea Cleansing Stick – The last cleanser category I have yet to try.
  5. Sum37’s Rose Cleansing Stick – Same comments as above.
  6. Too Cool for School’s Pumpkin Sleeping Mask – As a replacement for my Cosrx Rice Nourishing sleeping pack. This pumpkin mask has centella and licorice!


  1. A daily red lipcolor – I miss having an everyday red statement lip since Colourpop’s Peacocky was discontinued. They’re the perfect accessory and they look great in photos. Currently trying out MAC’s Chili. Replacements I am looking at include Peripera’s Ink Cloud Velvet in Reddish Rose and Etude House’s Dear Darling Ice Cream Tint in Shark Red.
  2. A darker red lipcolor – I’m currently using Colourpop’s Let’s Play lippie stix as my fancy red, but I would like something darker like Nars’ Cruella or Nyx’ Snow White. Potential replacements include Nyx’ Violet Ray and I’m Meme’s Toc Tic Lipcolor in Flame action.
  3. A new BB cushion – While my current main BB cushion by Etude House is fine for light, everyday coverage, I need something extra for full coverage occasions. I’m looking at Apieu’s Wonder Tension Pact Madecassoside, Klairs’ Mochi BB Cushion, and Romand’s Perfect Inner Lighting Cushion.
  4. Cream blushes – I’m replacing all my powder blushes with cream. Next up is Glossier’s Cloud Paint in Puff, and Stila’s Convertible Color in Lillium.
  5. Pony Effect’s Stay Fit Matte Lip Color in Magnificent – This pink nude is outside my comfort zone, but it looks so amazing on Pony and Joan Kim, I must try.
