Limited Edition Korean Makeup Products (Part 1)

As a makeup addict, sometimes we often buy many products that I don’t necessarily need purely because of how adorable the packaging is. With the recent release of the multiple special edition collaborations from different Korean makeup brands, our wallet will be a lot skinnier than before.

Check out the super cute collaborations down below!


Themed Makeup collaborations are widely used by beauty companies worldwide to make us fall in love hopelessly with their products (packaging). Targeting at our weak spot for everything cute and fanciful, their weapons include our favorite characters from childhood memories, to current messaging app and movies. Majority of them were launched exclusively in South Korea, causing worldwide jealousy and shortage of stocks. If they were to arrive in Europe, there will most likely be a queue!

Here are 13 limited edition themed makeup collections we wished we had in our online store:


#1 Missha x Line Friends

The Line Friends need no introduction. Iconic characters from the most popular communication app from Japan – the Line app, gave the makeup line from Missha a fresh new look. The response was overwhelming.


#2 Skinfood x Snoopy 

In conjunction with the launch of the Peanuts movie, Snoopy and friends collaborated with several vendors in the world including McDonald’s and many more. For skincare, Snoopy worked with one of Korea’s most popular skincare brand – Skinfood. Featured on its Royal Honey range, sketches of Snoopy and friends were printed on its hand cream, BB cushion and nail polishes.


#3 A’pieu x Crayon Shin Chan

How many of you had Crayon Shin Chan – the overly mature little boy with chunky thick eye brows, in your childhood? In this collection by A’pieu, Crayon’s signature pose is printed on facial wash and I literally smiled to myself when I saw Crayon dancing outfit and pose on the hand cream!


#4 A’pieu x Doraemon

In this collaboration between A’pieu & Doraemon, you can find anything from Doraemon Air cushion, blusher, eye shadow, lip tint to hand cream.


#5 Innisfree x Paul Frank

 According to the Chinese zodiac, 2016 is the year of Monkey thus it’s no surprise Paul Frank is out to play! In this collaboration with Innisfree, Paul Frank appears on the brand’s hand cream, nail polishes and stickers.


#6 Beyond x Alice in Wonderland

Known for being eco-friendly and cruelty-free, Beyond is another South Korea brand which covers skincare, hair care and makeup. It’s too magical to resist!
