RONA Makeup Haul ♡ ft. Holika Holika Pig-Nose Clear Blackhead 3-Step Kit Demo

Last time I blogged about my first RONA Makeup Haul + Store Review & Shopping Experience, I was not impressed with their customer service, even thou I enjoy shopping without having someone follow me every where I go, I still didn't appreciate being fully ignored, especially when there's no prices on any of the products!

I visited RONA Makeup again, I honestly didn't plan on going back, but I have ran out of the Etude House Quick Dry Drop, I was in desperate need of it lol hehe so I went back. This time I was welcomed by such smiley, and 'happy-to-help' customer service! I was totally impressed, not only did I get some help with prices and products details etc... I was also not being followed every where I go; now that's the kind of customer service I like. ;)

There won't be an updated store review of RONA Makeup, cause I feel like their customer service is good or bad depends on who is looking after their shop; you could have someone who completely ignores you, or you could have someone who is totally helpful. Some of the products on their shelf do have prices now, but a majority of them still left you guessing for their price, can't they just make it easier for everyone and price each of their products?! Grrr =.= Anyway, enough about that! Today I want to show you some awesome stuff I have recently purchased from RONA Makeup.

Etude House Help My Finger Quick Dry Drop
Last time I spot these in-store, I remember being so indecisive about it! I was afraid it may not work like it claims to be then I would end up wasting money. So glad I end up decide to try it out, cause I am totally impressed with this little 10 ml bottle of magic! It must be an amazing product, that's why I have purchase three more as back-up!

Etude House Help My Finger Quick Dry Drop is described a "magical potion promotes quick drying of nail color and fuses manicure layers into one high-gloss protective shield that resists wear and tear". If you have a 'can't-sit-still' personality and you hate waiting hours and hours for your nails to dry, this is a product you must try! Since using this quick dry drop, I have no pressure of changing my nails so regularly  it dries the surface of my nail colors within seconds, but I always sit around for at least 30 minutes for it to full dry up!

Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips Talk PK002
Described as a "smooth textured lipstick applies vivid color and moist shine". The lipstick is so much prettier compare to the online promotional pictures, the packaging is so gorgeous too! There are twenty shades available from this range, but RONA Makeup only had three colors available on their shelf.

Holika Holika Pig-Nose Clear Blackhead 3-Step Kit
This product contains three nose strips that open pores, removes blackheads and minimize pores. I have used this product plenty of times before I did a demo for this post, I wanted to make sure that this product really does works as it claims before I express my thoughts on it.

Directions of use: 
After cleansing, place step-1 on nose for 15 - 20 minutes; remove it slowly and wipe off any blackheads or impurities from pores. Wet nose with water and place step-2 on nose, slowly remove it from the edge after 10 - 15 minutes (this part is the most painful, I cry every time haha). After step-1 and step-2 is completed, place step-3 on nose; remove it after 10 - 15 minutes and gently tap it for better absorption (this step has a strong medicine smell, it smells like hospital).

Holika Holika Pig-Nose Clear Blackhead 3-Step Kit before & after result

My face got sunburned when I did the demo >.< that's why my nose is all red, plus it was quite painful while removing the nose strip from step-2; so you get why my nose looks like it's on fire hahaha. Above is a result of the before and after of using the Holika Holika Pig-Nose Clear Blackhead 3-Step Kit, do you see a difference? I do! My pores appears much smaller and my nose feels much much smoother! 

This product is available to purchase:

It's Skin Cookie & Hand Cream Mint
I am no big fan on hand cream, I find them all very greasy and not necessary; but when I saw the It's Skin Cookie & Hand Cream, I immediately fell in love! So I grab it cause it was on sale and the hand cream smells just like cookies and cream, with a hint of mint. There are three flavors available from this range, original, strawberry and mint.

Berrisom My Lip Tint Pack Chic Purple

I went back to RONA Makeup again (second time back during this holiday) and again I left with a very good impression of the store. I was greeted the minute I walked into the store, I wasn't being watched closely as if I was to steal anything, the girl looking after the store was helpful, I left with a smile on my face and a product that has been on my wishlist for a long time. 

Berrisom Oops My Lip Tint Pack Chic Purple 
Not just a regular lip tint! This product has a super fun application where you apply as normal, wait for 10 minutes for the product to dry then peel off the gel to get the perfect, a not-so-harsh lip tint shade. Berrisom claims this product is waterproof, to the fact that you can swim with it! If it's really as good as it claims, then we all need one of these in summer! 

I haven't really heard of any one talk about this product and there aren't many reviews on this product online; but looking at the "how to use" promo pictures, it gets me super excited and I can't wait to try it out. I will definitely do a demo of this product once I have try it out, can't wait to tell you all how amazing this product is! I hope it is amazing anyway hehe.

This product is available to purchase:
Wish Trend - USD $13.59
RONA Makeup, Auckland City - NZD $14.99

  2. AHH! Lovely haul! I totally need to try those finger drops! I personally use 80% asian polishes and they dry pretty damn fast but this is something I must try! So glad to see the nose packs worked for you! I use Biore pore strips at least 2 times a week and so now I don't get as much gunk on my strips!

    1. I have heard amazing things about Biore pore strips! May have to try it ^^ Let's see if it works as amazing as the pig nose ones. omg really? I must try Asian polishes then! I have been loving Essie polish lately, love their color range and they dry so fast even without using the finger drops! Unlike OPI, honestly, each time I use OPI I just get so frustrated with the waiting time haha

  3. Hi Kay,
    what a nice haul! I like Etude House, especially their packaging. Too bad they're not available in Germany, so I always have to order from Ebay which usually takes up to 1 month to arrive. But I will go to Indonesia in February for holiday so I will be able to get a lot of asian brands make up ^^

    1. I have a feeling the shops in Germany will be stocking Asian cosmetics anytime soon, Pamela. I have also been buying Etude House and other Korean beauty brands from eBay etc until I discover all these cute Asian stores in the CBD with all types and brands of Korean / Japanese cosmetics, I didn't even know they're available in the country!
