#SomethingOldSomethingNew_AtCounterCulture OCTOBER


I’ve had a extremely busy October, and am moving to a new place in a month, so I kept my purchases to a minimum. In fact, I’d only have this Holika Holika palette to show for this month, had I not dropped by reiwatakiya on Newbury St. Bit of a shame they don't carry Matsuyama, but it's perhaps just as well, as it was an impulse buy.

INCOMING
• #HolikaHolika My Fave Mood Eye Palette 03 Pinkology is the last of the Cool-Summer pink palettes on my wishlist (since I can’t get my hands on the Cecile x Celefit one and haven’t made up my mind whether Espoir Light Peony is worth getting, and I was never tempted by Clio Simply Pink). I have more than enough eyeshadow now, though it is still a novelty to be able to buy premade palettes because my coloring is in vogue.

• #Orbis Oil Cut Cleansing Gel + Cream For Cleansing
• #LITS Moist Lotion
• I’m not sure how old their stock is, but this #DailyAroma Yuzu Lip Cream smells like the oils have gone irredeemably rancid, so I’m binning it; the Yuzu Hand Cream is fine.

OUTGOING

Happy Halloween! 🎃👻

#SomethingOldSomethingNew_AtCounterCulture SEPTEMBER

INCOMING

→ #Castelbel Pure Honey Soap x2, replacing Necessaire
»»» SkinStore
• With my Paula’s Choice retinol running out, picked up #Medik8 Crystal Retinal 6 along with the Advanced Night Eye cream during the Labor Day sale.
»»» YesStyle
• I have mixed feelings about the Dried Strawberry quad (it feels more like it was designed to match a mood board than shades useful in building up a look), but #Romand Better Than Palette 06 Peony Nude Garden hit the bull’s eye with these neutrals.
• #IPKN Personal Mood Palette Plain Summer, collaboration with personal-color consultant @dustmothjini
♺ #ShuUemura appears to have updated their Rouge Unlimited Matte, and MPK 376 remains largely unchangedㅡperhaps ever-so-slightly bluer?
• #SkinAqua UV Super Moisture Essence SPF50+/PA++++

OUTGOING
• With the depletion of supplies of Mysore sandalwood a decade or so ago, #Necessaire The Body Wash – Sandalwood didn’t stand much of a chance. This is a very thin, watery woody scent vaguely reminiscent of sandalwood (someone tried hard to capture the scalded milk and rose notes, but it lacks richness), but it’s perhaps the best one can do at approximating the real thing.
← #Paula’s Choice CLINICAL 0.3% Retinol + 2% Bakuchiol Treatment
← #Hince Mood Enhancer Liquid Glow LG001 Prime, replaced by Rom&nd Peeling Angdoo
• I love the initial color when Rom&nd Glasting Water Tint 09 Soft Pool is first applied, dislike it once it shifts.
◇ #Espoir Real Cheek Up Caring Coral
• #Anessa Moisture UV Sunscreen Mild Gel SPF35/PA+++

#SomethingOldSomethingNew_AtCounterCulture AUGUST


I mean, if Rom&nd makes a collection specifically for Light Summers, I kind of have to get it? I should’ve been patient and gotten it all at once with the 10-pan palette; next month, perhaps.

INCOMING
• A long planned splurge, took advantage of tax-free weekend in Massachusetts to finally acquire #Hermes Iris Ukiyoé
»»» Stylekorean
• #Romand Juicy Lasting Tint 26 Very Berry Pink + 27 Pink Popsicle
• Rom&nd Better Than Eyes W03 Dry Strawberry is designed for Light Summers, and it's a better effort than Dried Lavender. It does feel rather like it was designed so that the four shadows would look visually coherent, rather than shades that would cohere on the eye, but I don't object to this delicate pink look.
• I’ve had my eye on #Espoir Lookbook Palette Roco Highteen 21 S/S for a while, unsure whether it’d be cool enough for me, but it’s also a pink palette, with the addition of a couple of browns—still well within my wheelhouse
• #Torriden took off a few months before I left Korea with their hyaluronic serum, but there’s an awful lot of hyaluronic-acid-based products in Asia, so low-molecular hyaluronic acid wasn’t enough to pique my interest. So the Dive-In Travel Kit seems like a good way to sample the brand, with minis of Sea Salt Creamy Foam Cleanser, Toner, Skin Booster, Serum, Cream, Daily Inorganic Suncream SPF50+/PA++++.

I hauled quite extensively during April and May; by June, there was not too much left on my wishlist.

INCOMING
♺ #Avene Thermal Spring Water
♺ #LaRochePosay Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Cleanser
♺ #PuraDOr Hair Thinning Therapy Shampoo
• I’m very nearly at the end of my overview of my eyeshadow collection, and one category I felt was sorely lacking were matte bases, preferably in a pale yogurt pink. The only one, currently, is a pan in the now discontinued Dior Dream, so I picked up #LauraMercier Morning Dew. It’s not that I start every eye look with a shade this white-based—the slightly deeper DM Me (Espoir Mauve Me) and Pinklosophy (Peripera Muteful Rose) are equally useful—but a super white-based cool matte will aid in knocking back any excessive red, yellow, or brown tones.
»»» AMUSE
• I was torn between 12 Sunday and 03 Flower Market in the Dew Tint range, but, since I don’t fare all that well with dull tones, erred on the side of the brighter Flower Market. A safe pick, it looks like all my other pinks! 🤣
→ Among the surge of lip-tint formulations designed to adhere to lips behind a mask (see: Etude House, Peripera), the Dew Velvet drew my attention. A pink-red with its brightness blunted slightly by grey, 03 Hibiscus is my obvious pick, and it’s close enough to Rom&nd Polar to replace it (Polar is redder, Hibiscus leans more pink). I’m not a fan of velvet blur tints—I got Polar because I was nostalgic for Korea shopping—and I like the airiness of the Dew Velvet formula much better: the pigmentation is sheerish, resembling the translucence of fruit juice, before drying down to an indelible matte stain that resists transfer.
• In a slightly squishy, semi-solid gel texture, Sparkling Jelly 01 Coral circumvents the issue of fallout; I debated picking up 02 Champagne as well, but the base is extremely sheer, so perhaps they will be similar on the skin?

• I liked the original version, so trying out the #EtudeHouse #SoonJung Centella 10-Free Moist Emulsion as a lightweight moisturizer for summer
• #SkinAqua UV Super Moisture Gel Gold SPF50+/PA++++
• The latest #Romand collection is a faded, dulled-down nude concept—I don’t wear dull tones, I don’t wear nudes—but there’s always so much noise every new collection it’s impossible to resist. I went for the most vibrant shades: Juicy Lasting Tint 24 Peeling Angdoo and Zero Velvet Tint 25 Nerd Pink, nevertheless still on the desaturated end of my pinks

• #Espoir Real Cheek Up 03 Caring Coral + PK001 Couture Lip Tint Shine Hey Bestie
• Fell victim to influencer hype and a $12.99 sale on #Moonshot Calming Fit Cushion 101 Ivory. This is fine, but I never like a foundation as much as my own skin, and 101 is slightly too dark and too peach. May try as undereye corrector.

#SomethingOldSomethingNew_AtCounterCulture APRIL


One of my hauls hit a snag and was lost/misdelivered this month. It’s been reshipped, but it seems it’ll be well into May until it gets here, so I figured it was time to cut my losses and post it anyway. With the caveat that not everything has been photographed, here are my hauls and empties from April.

INCOMING
• #Romand Zero Velvet Tint 09 Polar is essentially the same not-too-bright, not-too-muted pink as the Juicy Lasting Tint in Funky Melon, in a smudgeable blurring velvet formula.
♺ #Primera Miracle Seed Essence, my first bottle of the new version, fingers crossed
• #Meyers Clean Day Hand Soap in Lilac is a limited edition which, if you’re into the scent of lilac, is a pretty good facsimile of the real thing.
»»» Sephora haul
• #Necessaire The Body Wash in Sandalwood
♺ #Kiehls Ultimate Strength Hand Salve, upgrading to the big one
• Due to the pandemic, I haven’t stepped inside a brick-and-mortar Sephora, so #Kosas Revealer Super Creamy + Brightening Concealer 1.5 + Cloud Set Baked Setting & Smoothing Powder in Airy were blind buys. Luckily, Airy is a good match (though it remains to be seen if it can oust THREE). The concealer in 1.5 is actually slightly darker than my skintone, which I prefer in an undereye concealer (they look less ashy over dark circles), but it’s way too yellow. I’ve already returned it.
• While making my return, I bought #YouthToThePeople Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream on a whim. Seems nice for summer.
»»» From Yesstyle, not pictured
♺ #Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil
→ #Anessa Moisture UV Sunscreen Mild Gel SPF35/PA++++, replacing Canmake
♺ #Peripera Ink Blackcara 03 Clear Set x2
• I have no idea why ‘개안핑크’ has been translated into ‘Goji Berry’, but I picked up a bright, juicy pink for summer: Peripera Ink Mood Drop Tint 04 Goji Berry

OUTGOING
• #NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum 2:1
♺ I prefer the original formula, since it’s not as aggressively scented, but I’ll be keeping the cute honey-bear bottle from #Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair Honey Moisture Deep Moisturizing Mask for the purposes of decanting
• #DrSams Flawless Cleanser
............continued in comments

#SomethingOldSomethingNew_AtCounterCulture MARCH

INCOMING

• I have a soft spot for #Sioris , so I picked up the new Falling Into The Rose Mist & My First Essener
• I wasn't sure what to expect from #BanilaCo Miss Flower & Mr Honey Treatment Lip Balm, but it's a dupe of the French pharmacy faves in Korea (Uriage, Aveeno)
→ #Aveeno Calm + Restore Nourishing Oat Facial Cleanser, replacing Dr. Sam’s Flawless Cleanser
• Hoping to find a passable replacement for my KATE eyeliner, I tried #Maybelline Master Precise Skinny Gel Pencil 220 Sharp Brown. This is crumbly, doesn’t adhere well to the skin, pretty terrible.
• #WetnWild Megaslim Skinny Mascara Waterproof C146 Black is tolerable, but doesn’t hold a curl as well as the Korean ones I’ve been using. Cheap, though.
♺ #DrSams Flawless Brightly Serum x2
♺ Not shown. There was a small shipping snafu when I ordered a small bottle of #Timeless 20% C+E Ferulic Acid Serum from Target, so I ordered again last night, this time direct from the company itself—it hasn't arrived yet, of course.

OUTGOING
← #Lano Everywhere Multi-Cream, replaced by Kiehl’s
♺ #TheLab by #BlancDoux Hyaluronic Acid Sun Essence
♺ Dr. Sam’s Flawless Brightly Serum
• Though it’s slightly too strong a formulation for my easily-stripped skin, #PeachAndLily Power Calm Hydrating Gel Cleanser is a very nice foaming cleanser, if that’s more your preference. It has a light, soapy ginger fragrance.

My incoming and outgoing piles are finally starting to even out. I'm still hauling Korean brands, though this is definitely more cumbersome and time-consuming than it used to be (I'm sure the pandemic exacerbates things).

INCOMING

↑ Upgrading to a full size of #Laneige Cream Skin, very nice in this much harsher winter weather
• I guess the SPF rating is probably closer to 30, but #KeepCool Soothe Bamboo Sun Essence SPF50+/PA++++ is pretty similar to my favorite The Lab by Blanc Doux (same filters), but thicker and more moisturizing. I prefer the immediate absorption of the Blanc Doux, but Keep Cool is fine for winter.

#SomethingOldSomethingNew_AtCounterCulture DECEMBER


My skin went dessicated once December hit. I’d originally intended the Physiogel AI Lotion for facial use, only to end up slathering it on as a body lotion because New-England winters are bone dry; it wasn't enough, and my purchases this month reflect that.

➡ #BabyDove Eczema Care Soothing Wash, replacing Molton Brown
➡ I’ve had #CharlotteTilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick The Queen on my wishlist for years, but now that I have it... it's kind of a shade I already have.
• The closest thing I’ve found to gel-to-oil first cleansers on the Japanese market, #Biossance Squalane + Elderberry Jelly Cleanser is nice, but leaves behind a slight residue
♺ From the #Briogeo Merry Multi-Masking Kit, the Don’t Despair, Repair Deep Conditioning Mask in the Honey Moisture version, along with a trial size of the Be Gentle, Be Kind Avocado + Kiwi Mega Moisture Superfood Mask. I love the formula, but the Honey Moisture is more strongly fragranced than I’d like.

➡ Innisfree Black Tea Youth Enhancing Ampoule, replacing IOPE
• Innisfree Derma Green Tea Probiotics Cream
♺ #Primera Miracle Seed Essence x2
♺ #EtudeHouse #SoonJung Lip and Eye Remover
• shampoo 3: #CarolsDaughter Wash Day Delight Love At First Wash Water-to-Foam Shampoo is a watery cleansing solution applied directly to the scalp with a nozzle, massaged into a lather that only cleans the scalp and roots, while avoiding the rest of the hair. The only detergent is coco-glucoside, so it’s quite gentle, and because of the application method, there’s no struggle to distribute product through the hairㅡsometimes the issue with gentler shampoos. Agreeable, but strong, fresh green scent.
• shampoo 4: A good followup is #Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Exfoliating Shampoo, since a scalp scrub works better as a second cleanse. It’s nice, not too abrasive, and subtly minty, but I'm not convinced the price is warranted.
• While Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Tea Tree Scalp Treatment feels quite cool and refreshing, I can’t tell if it benefits my scalp as I’m trying so many things at once.
• Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair Deep Conditioning Mask
• shampoo 5: #PuraDor Hair Thinning Therapy Biotin Shampoo is my favorite of the conventional shampoos I’ve tried on the US market so far. The detergents are well balancedㅡnot too mild and yet not too harshㅡand the scent is mostly tea tree and rosemary.

Sparse pile of empties this month, as I concentrated my energies on using up as much as possible before my move, and now I need to replenish stocks of haircare and nail care and such. Haircare will be a saga; I'm looking for good formulations at a decent price, not excessively fragranced. This is always more difficult a task than it should be.

INCOMING
♺ #BlueCross Cuticle Remover
• shampoo 1: formulated for babies, #HonestBeauty Shampoo + Body Wash - Gently Nourishing is too gentle, leaving behind a lot of grime. Scent is a plasticky almond oil, light to moderate in strength.
• shampoo 2: #LoveBeautyAndPlanet Hemp Seed Oil & Nana Leaf Soothe & Nourish Shampoo claims to be good for scalp health, but was too harsh and resulted in more hair loss than usual. Strongly fragranced, a bracing green scent.
• conditioner 1: the formulation on #SheaMoisture Manuka Honey & Yogurt Hydrate + Repair Conditioner is niceㅡit seems to sink into your hair instead of merely coating itㅡbut I hate gourmand fragrances, and this is pure candy shop.

This month's installment is a little different. I'll outline the new stuff I bought next time (since I don't have physical access to duty-free purchases); this month, I wanted to show the apocalypse hoard I stockpiled of stuff that's hard to find outside of Korea before heading back to the USㅡsome of it accumulated from previous months.

#SomethingOldSomethingNew_AtCounterCulture MAY

It's two days before the final deadline for my thesis, so I've been off Instagram in order to focus on work, and May's purchases were mostly repurchases for the same reason. (I did take advantage of the Naming sale, and a couple of birthday gifts to myself early in May, but I have barely left my paper in the past two weeks.)
After three years of work, I'm looking forward to the end of this process! A break would be very welcome.
I hope you are all well. 💕
