If you’ve been reading our magazine or browsing our shop long enough to see a pattern, you’ve probably deduced how much we love Korean beauty products. But if not, here are three reasons why! One: the cosmetics are almost always infused with skincare, because South Korean girls see the beauty of a multi-tasker. Two: speaking of Korean skincare, it’s so, so good (like, seriously). And three: Korean beauty trends are having a major moment in this industry. These straight-from-Seoul superstars allow us to get the look, fast.

We’re sure you know a few girls (or twenty) who are as obsessed with K-beauty as the kids are with K-pop. So here’s a list of It-products we’ve put together, just in the nick of time. Say annyeong to the best gifts ever!
