5 Korean Makeup Brands You'll Fall In Love With

Hello, this is Ari, again. I'm sorry that I'm late this week. I was supposed to upload my post yesterday but I was too busy with preparing for A Cup of Korean, a brand-new Korean learning worksheets series. If you're interested, please check it out. 

Today, I wanna introduce Korean makeup cosmetics brands that are popular between young Koreans. They're cheap and pretty so you'll love them. Let's start!

1. Rom&nd 롬앤

Rom&nd is one of the fastest growing cosmetics brands in Korea right now. They got popular for makeup products for cool undertones. Since majority of Korean girls have warm undertones, there weren't enough makeup products for cool undertones. Rom&nd's face shadow and eyeshadow palettes for cool undertones went viral on the Internet. Now they become one of go-to cosmetics brands for young Koreans.

Bestseller - 4 color eyeshadow palettes

2. Peripera 페리페라

I believe Peripera is one of the most popular cosmetics brands between teenagers. The brand has a mega-hit lip tint product called, Ink Tint. It's named as 'Ink' because it stays on lips for a very long time like ink stays on paper. Because it's very cheap (costs about $8), it's loved by teenagers and 20' something Korean girls. 

Bestseller - Ink Tint Serum

3. 3CE

I'm not sure if I can call 3CE as a Korean brand anymore since it was bought by L'oreal in 2018 for 500 million USD. But it started in South Korea and is loved as a Korean brand globally. It's said that many celebrities are using 3CE including IZ*ONE's Sakura Miyawaki. Since it's a really big brand, it has big flagship stores in Seoul which are visited by many tourists.

Bestseller- 9 color eyeshadow palettes

4. Lilybyred 릴리바이레드

It's the smallest cosmetics brand in the list. Lilybyred is specialized in lip products. They're popular between young Korean girls for unique colors and cheap price tags. One of their best-selling lip products costs about $3. (When it was on sale this summer, it was only $1.2.)

Bestseller- Lip tint

5. ETUDE 에뛰드

If you've ever bought a Korean cosmetic, you'll know about ETUDE. It's one of the most popular and the oldest cosmetics brands in Korea. It's not an overstatement to say that every Korean girl has at least one ETUDE product. (I have a lot of them.) The brand has about 300 stores in Korea. I recommend you to go shop while visiting my country. 

Bestseller- Single eyeshadows
