[REVIEW] Glossier Lidstar Eyeshadow Herb

Glossier Lidstar Eyeshadow Herb Review

Glossier Lidstar Eyeshadow Herb Review:

When I think of Glossier, I think natural, effortless, and enhance-yourself beauty. It’s definitely an extremely popular brand, with a select range of skincare and makeup. They don’t have too many options – for example, Lidstar is their only proper eyeshadow-type product, but the products that they do release are very well-thought out and well-loved.

I really enjoy using their Boy Brow eyebrow gel, and so was excited to try out Lidstar, which is a long-wearing eyeglow is supposed to be enhancing, long-lasting, and easy to wear. I have pretty oily eyelids, so I am always a little wary of any eyeshadow that is not in powder form. How does it hold up?

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Romand Zero Velvet Tint 04 Burnt Heart

Romand Zero Velvet Tint 04 Burnt Heart Review

Romand Zero Velvet Tint 04 Burnt Heart was purchased by Cosmperks.

If you follow Korean beauty bloggers on Instagram, then you must’ve heard about this brand Rom&nd (read as Rom-and). When I searched about the brand, it was revealed that Romand is a Korean beauty brand made by a celebrity makeup artist and YouTuber Saeron Min (widely known as Gaeko). Lately they really did well in promoting their brand by endorsing some well-known beauty bloggers. When I checked their website, they didn’t have too many products, they only have several lip products, some eye palettes, and a blusher.

One of the most promoted product is the Zero Velvet Tint which Nigama offered me to try. They claim it as a velvet tint but after I tried it, I don’t think it belongs to tint category, it’s more like a lip cream instead of a tint. If you are familiar with western style lip cream, you will find a lot of similarities with this product.

The Zero Velvet Tint is available in 6 shades and most of them are more on the darker side. It has various undertones such as red, orange, and rosy from the swatch picture but since everyone has different skin undertone, I am curious on how the shade will look on me.

[REVIEW] NACIFIC Fresh Herb Origin Sunblock Calendula SPF50+ PA++++

NACIFIC Fresh Herb Origin Sunblock Calendula SPF50+ PA++++ Review

NACIFIC Fresh Herb Origin Sunblock Calendula SPF50+ PA++++ Review:

I was running out of my old Innisfree Daily UV Protection Cream No Sebum Sunblock when I ran into this NACIFIC Fresh Herb Origin Sun Block Calendula SPF50+ PA++++. The brand NACIFIC, previously known as Natural Pacific, is famous for its hyped Fresh Herb Origin Serum, and it also claims to use natural ingredients on all their products. Thus, I was intrigued to try this one; does this product do well just like its ‘cousin’ from the same brand?

Celderma Make Up Quick Priming Mask Review

Celderma Make Up Quick Priming Mask Review:

I will come right out and say it: I’m not sure I buy this whole priming mask thing. But I am very intrigued by it being a quick mask that is done in up to five minutes, and that is an enough selling point for me! Of course I will be judging it also regarding the priming abilities and it better surprise me because if it has priming in the name I expect it to do as much of a good job as my priming sun cream. At least.

PINK BY PURE BEAUTY so smooth Pudding Cream Review

PINK BY PURE BEAUTY so smooth Pudding Cream Review:

Well, an unfamiliar product name and brand, isn’t it? I don’t know if you ever heard about this product, but I never knew ‘PINK BY PURE BEAUTY so smooth Pudding Cream’ was sold by my usual Korean products’ sellers. Despite its label of ‘Made in Korea’, I found it widely promoted in Watsons Malaysia.

It comes with a big family of PINK BY PURE BEAUTY; pink pore toner, pore perfection peeling pads, pink pore foam cleanser, pink skin so glow essence, and many more. They caught my attention due to their soft pink-and-black packaging and various range of products, so I decided to give ‘PINK BY PURE BEAUTY so smooth Pudding Cream’ a try after spreading the tester on the back of my hand.

Memebox I'm Meme Tic Toc Satin Lipstick 007 Pink Bomber Review

Memebox I’m Meme Tic Toc Satin Lipstick 007 Pink Bomber Review:

I’ve been wanting to try the infamous Memebox I’m Tic Too Satin Lipstick since forever and finally I got the chance to try it! I’ve been saving money to get some products from Memebox including this one. When I saw it for the first time, I thought the shape is too ‘gimmicky’ and I don’t like the fact that I have to click the button at the bottom part to get the bullet out (and it won’t get inside after you click it out) until I saw some reviews about it on Youtube and Naver.

Memebox I’m Tic Too Satin Lipstick is available in 10 shades but what I like is how each shades have their own uniqueness because they have different tone and even though the majority of the shades dominated by reds and pinks, most of them are MLBB (My Lips But better) shades so everyone can try it.

From the reviews I read, everyone is gushing about how good and creamy this lipstick is. I can’t find a bad review at all and actually it’s surprising me since I read from both Korean and non-Korean reviews. Even though I don’t like the shape, I was really curious and finally I bought this lipstick along with my other purchase from Memebox but I had to wait for more than a month to get the package arrived at my place so I can’t wait to share my experience with this lipstick.

[REVIEW] Pro 8 Cheongdam Stay On Gel Eyeliner 01 Black

Pro 8 Cheongdam Stay On Gel Eyeliner 01 Black Review

Pro 8 Cheongdam Stay On Gel Eyeliner 01 Black Review:

Out of the various types of eyeliners, the gel type has always been my favorite. Pencils are great for a breezy, undone look, but they sometimes lack precision and always smudge way too easily on my oily eyelids. Liquid liners work well if you want a perfectly crisp winged look, but for me, they sometimes come off as too perfect, almost unnaturally so. A tiny pot of gel eyeliner is a happy medium for me, striking the perfect balance in the best of both worlds.

Pro 8 Cheongdam was not a brand that I had heard about, until I saw its Stay On Gel Eyeliner being used in one of Pony’s makeup tutorial videos. It glides on silky smooth with great pigment, and so I gave in to the temptation and bought it during my trip to Seoul. The brand is actually under Picasso — yes, Picasso as in the famed Picasso makeup brushes!

So, how does it hold up?

Missha Glow Lip Blush Just Me

Missha Glow Lip Blush Just Me Review:

Impressed with how the Glow Skin Balm worked on my oily skin, I finally purchased other product from the Glow collection from Missha. This time I got the Glow Lip Blush which they advertised as a ‘2 in 1’ product that can be used as a lip color and as a blush. I’m not the type that use lip product for my blush so I didn’t give too much thought about how it will perform on me, I only curious if it will perform well on the lips.

Missha describe it as a ‘glowing’ lip color with a good pigmentation and moisturizing yet doesn’t feel sticky at the same time. Usually I don’t like glossy lip product that much because I hate the stickiness but because Missha said it’s not sticky (along with great pay-off), of course I have to try it myself.

They have 8 shades to choose from and honestly I love all of the shades. The shades range are mainly n*des and pinks so it’s really perfect for my go-to lips for working or any other daily activities. I had a hard time in choosing only 1 shade but I finally decided to get #Just Me since it was advertised as one of their ‘main’ shade.

[REVIEW] Innisfree Moist UV Protection Cream Winter Barrier SPF50+ PA++++

Innisfree Moist UV Protection Cream Winter Barrier SPF50+ PA++++ Review

Innisfree Moist UV Protection Cream Winter Barrier SPF50+ PA++++  was purchased by Cosmeperks.

I was very excited to first hear of a sun cream specific for winter, and even more so when I saw it had a super high SPF. Everyone, and that includes “skin care gods” like Koreans, thinks they are safe in the winter, that the sun will not get them. Here in Korea it’s especially difficult to recognize the difference between a cloudy day or a polluted day – unless you are sensitive, asthmatic, or have an app that gives you air notifications.

So whereas I accept that in cloudy days people may be deceived into thinking the sun “is okay”, here we have more polluted days than cloudy ones. And in the dry winter how can I use the anti-sebum sun creams I use in the summer?

So with a sun cream for this especially difficult season, of course it spiked my interest. Weirdly enough it isn’t as popular here as I thought it would be!
