    • Be a moderator! & Reports Announcement   03/07/19

      We're aware that PULL needs more moderation and attention, so we're actively looking to expand our mod crew! If you're a regular user and intend to stay this way, then rest assured that we're working on improving PULL for you. In order to do this, we rely on user reports, so I'd like to take this opportunity to ask everyone to report posts you think break a rule, disrupt discussion or shouldn't be allowed.  There is absolutely no concern over getting too many reports - we get a handful of reports per week. More reports would be great because it helps us figure out how our users want the forum to be - leaving criticism in threads doesn't make it easy for mods to find your opinions. Furthermore, don't worry about being a "snitch" or too harsh - a report doesn't mean action will be taken, that's up to the mods. A report really only tells us to look at the comment and to gauge the community atmosphere. Often times, peer pressure or established community atmosphere will dictate the direction a thread takes, and criticizing certain posts can be uncomfortable or downright futile when the majority disagrees with your view. This leads to groupthink and degradation of thread quality because the loudest/most active users get their way. So reporting is a way to quickly and anonymously (to other users) give feedback to the moderators. If we don't get this feedback, we think everyone's happy and there's no need for change. So use this feature as much as you'd like to help shape PULL into a more constructive community again. If you'd like to be a moderator: Click here for the application form.

  1. Tsubaki added a post in a topic Anyone ordered from Yesstyle or other Asian sites?   

    I've used MANY over the years. I might be a shopaholic but you have to keep in mind, I've been shopping for K-beauty online since 2013. I started off with eBay because I didn't really know any better. I'm the kind of shopper who prefers shopping a little bit when I want something here and there, and I don't care about samples and free products. It's a nice treat but I find myself accumulating sachet samples and free face masks because I don't use them... and free products are often close to expiry date and totally not my colour.
    YesStyle: If you want a one-stop shop, why not? I've only used them twice though. I think you can find better if you shop around.
    Jolse: My preferred website if I'm just after one or two things. Good range of brands. Products are priced a little more expensive but you don't have to pay for shipping if you keep to their economy shipping. 
    RoseRoseShop: Shipping is calculated accordingly. Prices of product run cheaper but that's because it doesn't take shipping into account. If you're doing a bigger order, it might be worthwhile.
    SweetCorea: Lesser known, might think it's dodgy as hell because they can't spell Korea correctly but I've shopped from them multiple times and it's fine. Similar in that you'll get better savings if you're one to shop in bulk/larger order. Competitive prices but shipping also will drive it up. 
    BBCosmetic: It's a bit like Jolse, but not as broad of a range. Can have better/more competitive prices than Jolse. That's why you shop around.
    Cosmetic-Love: Not my favourite but I go here when I'm after a certain product I can't access from the other websites, like a LE product or a sold-out product elsewhere. More expensive imho.
    StyleKorean: Kbloggers have endorsed them, and they're pricey. Sometimes they'll have the rare deal that'll trigger the purchase, otherwise they have their curated K-beauty boxes with deluxe sample sizes to try. I rarely ever shop from them, just like YesStyle.
    Wishtrend: I like they have their own line, and for a while, Klairs could only be obtained through them. Depending on what you're after in particular, it can be overpriced. Customer service could be better. I can't speak for the others in customer service because I haven't had an issue, but it was just unlucky and it was lack of communication in updates getting a new shipment of product for replacement that makes me not want to shop with them again (like... I placed an order in November and I didn't get the one product until Feb the next year, and I wasn't informed when the replacement was shipped.)

  2. Tsubaki added a post in a topic What is the best way to keep an estradiol patch on?   

    I don't have any specific tips on that specific patch, but it applies to any transdermal patch. Have you tried putting it on your shoulder or back? Less movement than your limbs. If you wear skinny jeans, thigh might not be a good idea since it might cause the patch to roll up or off. Rubbing alcohol can help clean the surface of the skin so there's no dirt/dried skin/oils to affect the adhesion.

  3. Tsubaki added a post in a topic Confessional   

    Not an only child, but my parents had me at a late age and it's not easy for my parents to form a friendship with my friends' parents since they're considerably older. My mum was turning 40 when she had my sister (a month before her actual birthday). I accept it the way it is, because I could've been one of the little kids running around with dads in their 60s and mums half the age. It's not inherently a bad thing but it's the stigma around it and the looks you get from other parents and kids. I developed a deep sense of shame because I had older parents, but I can't imagine it if my parents had a huge generational gap between them.
    I've always been envious of girls who have close friendly relationships with their mothers. As a kid/teen, I just thought it was because my mum was considerably older than I was. Now that I'm an adult, my parents are more open to saying certain things and I'm not surprised that my mum wasn't keen on raising kids or being involved in my life in adulthood.

    I like her so far. I like her style but that doesn't mean I wear anything close to it, but yeah, the openness about sexuality is refreshing and tbh, I don't really care too much about the awkward act because... I'm very awkward myself. There are so many moments when I think back and ask myself why I even said it in the first place because it made the other person terribly uncomfortable.
    I don't really know Emma Chamberlain, but I got Clothesencounter vibes with the thrifting? I guess it's because that channel was the first fashion/style that had any influence on me. Despite being a bit younger than I am, I still get older sister vibes from Ashley. Haha... I think I'm at a halt with my maturity or something, but I'd say she probably seems more mature on screen than a Joan Kim or Jenn Im.

    If she's trying to express that her "personable videos" are made for people who find comfort in the mundane, sure, but if she thinks she's somehow "personable", she's delusional.

    Her Feb Faves are out. Still rocking the hot mess of hair and lips.

    I don't think it's inherently wrong to go a shade up because that's how I do it when I know that my recommended shade looks like a bad case of fake tan 5 minutes in (all about the undertones). I just don't buy the reasoning of more oxidation because you don't powder your face. Edit: I sit in between a 21 and 23 in Korean foundation shade most of the year and go lighter because of oxidation, and bronze it up if I feel like it's still too light.
    It's also one thing to be well-read, and another thing to be a deep thinker. She can read many books and be able to read broadly, but it's a separate skill to be able to make well-formed opinions and express it eloquently.

    As a person who jokes about their gaydar being seriously dysfunctional, I totally felt it with Moma. Whether he's gay or not, it's not really the issue. It's that he's not responding/reciprocating to any of that flirty behaviour Joan exhibited in the video, as though he's clearly not interested.

    I had a good laugh. Poor tattoo decisions.

    There are some ASMR vids out there with music. It's usually set in the background if it's a roleplay vid, but I feel like Joan's vid is more in line with the people who vlog, rarely show their faces and just doing mundane things. Not far from her vlog channel, really.
    My fave channel for that atm is 子时当归 LOL, I can't understand Mandarin but I've been living away from Sydney so it gives me great joy to see familiar places. Or you know, like ondo온도.

    You can accumulate stuff over the years but 47 hoodies is a bit much for the average person. Also why do a closet collection in parts? That's like someone putting out a makeup collection video and going into foundations, concealers, lipsticks in different videos. Just do one vid in your closet and pull out your faves or items attached to unique memories?

    Digging that jumper on the girl to Joan's left (as in to the right when we see it). I don't have anything festive like that.

  13. Tsubaki added a post in a topic Your favourite/signature perfume?   

    As I grow older, I realise I've spent a ridiculous amount of money on fragrance without waiting until I finish one and replace it. It's stupid to own that much. Scents change over time and oxidise. My tastes change too. I used to be into strong scents that last long but now I prefer softer ones that are fleeting.

    I think it's cute that her dad wears a UC Berkeley dad jumper in today's vlog. Someday, I'd love to see Chicago. Looks like there's a similar NYC feel, except that's coming from a Sydneysider. I think I've just offended many people by saying that. 
    Y'all know she's bought something from Tiffany's with that sly shot of a blue bag in the background, and Abe carrying it for her.
