Best Pimple Patch for Acne Treatment

Stylevana K-Beauty Review: Stylevana has a lot of loyal COSRX fans who keep coming back (and also searching) for this one, and we all know why. COSRX's Acne Pimple Master Patch is more than just a concealing solution that hides your pimples, it’s also an overnight fixer for acne-prone skin that will help flatten and heal cystic acne with A.D.F. hydrocolloid material. Remember, spot treatment might have a small role to play in your skincare routine but definitely not the least important so choose one that actually does the work for you.

Best Makeup Setting Powder for Oily Skin

Stylevana K-Beauty Review: innisfree’s No Sebum Mineral Powder is our all-time favorite (and also our VANA influencer kneewah’s pick in her GRWM makeup routine). This setting powder is made up of the Korean brand’s signature Jeju minerals and mint to control secretion of sebum while locking in moisture to keep skin healthy and looking fresh all day long. If you are suffering from an oily skin condition, you should give this K-beauty makeup setting powder a try. If you have large pores, you can also try the innisfree Pore Blur Powder. Or if your skin condition is dehydrated, then you should use innisfree’s No Sebum Moisture Powder for a better experience.

It's easy to mess up a perfect wing but with a fine-tipped eyeliner like MACQUEEN's Waterproof Pen Eyeliner, you can create deep and defined eye line quickly and effortlessly in easy-to-contour thin, smooth strokes that can be layered for a bold look.
