List of Must-have Cosmetics | Beauty Products in Korea
Olive Young – Botanic Heal boH Derma Defense Hyaluronic Sun Milk SPF50+
In summer, sunscreen is definitely a must-have item as part of your daytime skincare or beauty routine, to protect your skin from the harsh rays. However, most of the time, sunscreen can leave a white cast on your skin which most people try to avoid. In this case, we recommend the botanic heal derma defense sun milk to you. Not only does it leave no white cast, but it also protects you from acne. The milky texture spreads easily and is perfect for dry and sensitive skin as well.
Too Faced — Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick
This is a long-lasting, ultra-matte lipstick with the staying power of a stain and the intense color of a liquid lipstick. Too Faced uses an innovative long-wear formula that stays on for up to eight hours and glides over lips like a gloss but dries to an ultra-matte, opaque finish. Infused with a no-sting plumping filler, Melted Matte ensures color always looks rich, and full — never dry, shriveled, or cracked.

Match Stix lets you choose your best matches, and best of all, they’re magnetic, so they click together and are easy to find in your bag.”
