About Me

I am a college student on a budget in hopes to find good deals and gems from big stores and small shops! I am also a content creator and I like to make videos on lifestyle and fashion/beauty!

How I Can Help

I have a YouTube Channel (justjoanne) and TikTok (justjjoanne) where I post hauls and lifestyle/travel vlogs! For my hauls, I shop from different fashion stores and mostly Korean Beauty but like to try out different things! I hope my videos and reviews can help those who are interested in buying from these places make good decisions on which items to purchase :)

Interests

Vlogging, Photography, Korean Beauty and Music!

My friend recently bought from Doe Lashes and got it shipped overseas. It took around 3-4 weeks which is reasonable due to international shipping and covid. I wanted to write this review based on her purchase (shipping wise) but I wanted to share my past experience as I have purchased from the lashes personally too when I was back in the states. This was back in May of 2020 and my shipping took only 5 days which was quite fast considering it was also during covid. They have very cute packaging and the lashes are amazing. They are great for Asian lashes and they have different styles so you'll definitely be able to find one that suits your taste! Doe lashes does a really good job promoting their products online and having others share their experiences so you'll be able to find many reviews everywhere.

I have been reusing my two sets of lashes around five times for each one. I'm just careful when I clean it and I love how durable they are. I don't wear false eyelashes that often but I feel like I will be wearing them more in the future so I'll definitely be buying again! They have great discounts and also their shipping is pretty fast. You can't go wrong with this brand!

Olright shampoo, a green beauty pioneer, originates from Taiwan. They were recently named winner of the "New Sustainable Product category and Sustainability Pioneer runner-up" on top of other awards. Read more about them here if you're interested! https://www.oright.inc/news/views/38

My cousin first introduced this brand to me as I was looking for a good shampoo (didn't want to buy those cheap ones from the drug store anymore.) I went to their store and I instantly fell in love with their setup. Not only did I love the organic and vegan aspect of it but I also loved their store set up (hehe)! It's so beautiful and aesthetically pleasing (so is their packaging). I do have to say though, their products are a little more expensive than I would like to spend on shampoo but I'm willing to put more money into a very good product like theirs. The caffeine shampoo I got really works as my hair has been growing back quickly (I lose hair very easily and I even have a "bald spot"...)

I will definitely be going back and purchasing more of their shampoo as well as try their other products as well! Ex: lash serums, skincare and more!

On another note, Olright is indeed a bit harder to find online (even here in Taiwan) but check out their website to see if they ship to you because I highly recommend trying it out!

About a month ago, I bought from Aliexpress and because my item was being shipped from China, it said shipping was going to take a month or so. I was actually a little surprised when it arrived in a little over a week. This was my first purchase from this website and yes I am a little skeptical of it but hearing my friends purchase from them and now purchasing myself I'm not as suspicious with this company. Indeed it is possible that some people may not have the best experience when purchasing and so that's why it's sometimes a hit or miss. I think I was really lucky with the seller I bought from because they shipped out my item really quickly and I got what I paid for. The site does have a lot of things at a very affordable price and even people buy from it to resell. I definitely will be purchasing more from this site again in the future if I need something cheap!

Tip for consumers:
Be sure to compare other items and their prices. Also be sure to read reviews!!!

If I had to explain Olive Young in a sentence I would say this shop is "Korea's version of Ulta". They have really affordable make up and skin care and their stores are everywhere. When I was in Korea I went multiple times and really miss shopping there. Not too long ago they launched their online website and I'm really excited to shop on there. I know they have a variety of products pretty much all the K beauty you can think of. It's kind of hard to find a good affordable K beauty in the states so the purchasing from Olive Young's website is great and I love how they have international shipping too! I will update this review/add a new one in the future when I purchase from their site :)

For this specific review video, I talk about their jeans, which is one of the more difficult items to purchase from their site. However, if you look at the reviews and know which one is best to buy you can get some really good ones at great prices! I definitely can say I've bought some gems because they have different styles and they are priced quite fairly in my opinion.

Watch the video to see me review the YesStyle jeans I got!

YesStyle not only sells clothes but they also sell skincare, makeup, and much more! I know some stores such as sephora etc sell Korean beauty products but they generally have the big brands or expensive products. That is why I went to YesStyle to find the other popular and more affordable products.

Check out my video if you want to see the products I got!

I've always known I had somewhat long lashes and I liked the false eyelash/eyelash extension look. However, I didn't want to spend the money to constantly get them done and I also am not very good at putting falsies on myself. So, I decided to try getting a lash lift and it cost me about 100USD. After that I wanted to get them done again but it just cost too much so I bought this set on amazon and i love it!

The lash lift set is easy to use and I've done it about 5 times now. I accidentally spilled one of them but even so I think I can still get at least 4 more uses out of this until that bottle is out (you can use it even more!) It varies between everyone of course, but my lashes stay up about 3-4 weeks.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone but I do want to put a little disclaimer that on my last lift, my left eye did get a little reaction to the lash glue (not sure why because I havent before) but it's possible you may. It's definitely okay though as long as you don't get it in your eye you're good.

I've attached a picture (covered up my pimple) to show what my lashes looked like before and after. Right side is with the lash lift and the left side is my lashes "lifted" but it's been a while since I've done them so it's slightly straight.

I've worn Princess Polly clothes before but they were my friends pieces so this time I decided to shop for some of my own! This was my first purchase with the brand and I was really excited! I am pretty satisfied with the purchase as shipping was quick and I was able to get my items with good discounts. Check out my video review for more details and a try-on haul!

So my friend has this lash glue that she let me use and it was my first time trying it out. It's Velour's White Latex-Free Lash Adhesive and she got it in a holiday set along with the tweezer which is quite nice as well. The lash glue itself is so good because it has a brush applicator rather than a squeeze tube. Generally when theres a tube, it's harder to get product on the lashes smoothly and get a thin layer. The lash glue is also clear so if you mess up it won't "ruin" you eye makeup. The last thing I wanted to mention was that my friend has been using this lash glue for a long time now (to be specific 2 years…) and there's still product (she wears lashes everyday so I don't know how that's possible) but it's great! I am definitely considering buying one for myself since it really is one of the best lash glues I've ever used.

Here's a lengthy review:
Many people have most likely heard of Shein before as it is a brand that sells cute clothing at a low price. However, the downside to this low price is that some of the items are not good quality. The other thing is, this brand is known for being bad at their shipping their products out and customer service which kinda leads to people believing they're a scam. Obviously this brand is not completely a scam because customers have shown their hauls on both youtube and tiktok and other places.

Speaking of tiktok, sometime last year there was a scandal going on about how shein was selling customer information (such as addresses) to others on tiktok but I believe it eventually turned out to be people hacking into the system.

From my personal experience, I bought 9 items (these black boots, tops, and some accessories). I got my boots in about a week after placing the order which is fair. However, the other 8 items that I ordered said it was still shipping after a whole month of placing my order and not just that, I waited until it hit about two months until I requested a refund which I did get later.

Not just from the scandal but also my own experience with purchasing, I will not be buying from Shein again and I have already deleted my account just for further precaution and also because I know I won't need or want anything from their website as well.

Final rating: will be giving two stars only because of my boots order (good quality for the price and shipped fairly quick)

Olens is a Korean colored contact brand that sells the trendiest lens and they have many designs to fit everyones fashion style. I bought two colored contacts, Spanish Grey and Lime gold which is Jennie and Rose's line. For those who don't know, Olens collaborates with Kpop idols like BTS and Blackpink! This time I just bought two month contacts from two different members. I'm really satisfied with this purchase as I got the colors I wanted (I got help to find ones that suit me best) and even got some discounts! Olens has the best prices and it's definitely worth for its great quality as well.

ChoiceMusicLA has been a store I've constantly gone back to purchase Kpop merchandise for the past 4 years. My first purchase was through their website and I remember how quickly I received my items. Also to mention, they have really good customer service and I've even met the guys who run the store in person twice now! The staff at their Los Angeles store are great too, I would recommend to visit sometime (post-pandemic…) Other things to note about this shop is that they fairly price their items and the albums that you buy are counted into the Korea official record charts! They also have lots of products you will most likely find stuff from your favs! (Even have Korean drama merchandise)

P.S. they also do multiple giveaways on their Instagram so be sure to check them out and give them a follow!@choicemusicla

I vlogged my last interaction with them and you can check my video starting at 3:58 :)

VT cosmetics is a Korean beauty brand and most people probably discovered them when they did a collaboration with the Kpop group BTS. I myself did too and I was really excited to try out new kbeauty products! VT cosmetics also has done a line with BTS's character BT21 which are so cute! I myself have only gotten a few of those make up products and they aren't bad but I would prefer the other collection which is what I showed in my YouTube video! Check it out if you're interested in seeing some of the products with a video review:)

I made a purchase from Chuu not too long ago and wanted to share my experience! I actually made a tiktok when I saw their store in Taiwan because I was really surprised to see it! I didn't know they had stores and I thought they were only online. I tried on a few different jeans and ended up buying the jean shorts which I'm really happy about! They have pretty good sales and I feel like I got these Jean shorts at a really good price and they're great quality to. I haven't bought from the online store yet but I plan to do so in the future. By the way, here is the tiktok if you are interested in seeing it: https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMJtx1jB8/
