[REVIEW] A’Pieu Madecassoside Ampoule

A'pieu Madecassoside Ampoule Review

A’Pieu Madecassoside Ampoule Review:

It starts with the name. It’s as simple as it is. We like cool and creative names but, let’s face it, it’s more practical to call a product by what it is! For example, you wouldn’t say “Benton Goodbye Redness Centella Mask Pack” all the time, you would just say “Benton Centella Mask” or something.

With this name there is no going wrong. I also like the design, which matches the collection completely. And the simple promise of skin protection. But does the A’Pieu Madecassoside Ampoule perform as well as it sells?

[REVIEW] Colorgram Milk Velvet Shadow 01 Milk Tea Latte

Colorgram Milk Velvet Shadow 01 Milk Tea Latte Review

Colorgram Milk Velvet Shadow 01 Milk Tea Latte Review:

If you ever read my review about A’Pieu Eye mousse, then you must’ve known that I love that product so much. I’m planning to get all shades to try but then I stumbled upon this product when I was searching for a matte liquid shadows. If you haven’t heard about Colorgram, it’s a Korean brand and if I’m not mistaken, you can get it from Olive Young, a well-known place where you can find unique and rare brands (it’s like a drugstore).

I heard about Colorgram but it’s only about their lip tint. There’s almost no review about their liquid shadow but I decide to try it because the shade range is really my style. It consists of 6 shades – 2 mattes, 2 pearly mattes, and 2 shimmers. I’m not too interested to their shimmer shades but the mattes one are really pretty! All of the matte is in neutral tone so it’s wearable for everyday and will suit every skin tone as well. Because of how much I love the shade, I had a hard time in choosing only one.

Lately matte liquid shadow starts to get recognition in Korea, even brand like Etude House starts making it as well so I’m really excited to try it all. I have oily eyelids so with a matte liquid shadow I can achieve a perfect matte look in just a minute. If you have oily lids like I do, I highly suggest you to try matte liquid shadow!

[REVIEW] Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun SPF45/PA+++

Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun SPF45PA+++ Review

Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun SPF45/PA+++ Review:

If I’m not mistaken, in 2018, Missha repackaged their sunscreen line, giving them a more minimalist face lift. And while I’m not entirely sure if some of them were reformulated, I’ve checked the ingredients for this one, only to spot no difference – or none too drastic, at least. So, without further ado, let’s dive into this review, shall we?

[REVIEW] ETUDE HOUSE UV Double Cut Fresh Sun Gel SPF 50+ PA++++

ETUDE HOUSE UV Double Cut Fresh Sun Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ Review

ETUDE HOUSE UV Double Cut Fresh Sun Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ Review:

Choosing a sunscreen product is always a tricky matter for me. As far as I know, Korean brands don’t develop sunscreen products range as vary as they do toward serums, essences, or toners. Thus, I personally have my own limitations and provisos for my options, such as paraben-free, no white cast, minimalist greasiness, etc.

While I was eyeing some options, one of them was ETUDE HOUSE UV Double Cut Fresh Sun Gel SPF 50+ PA++++. I was slightly confused because the review of this product was very scant (maybe because this product was still pretty new), but I finally decided to give this a try due to the convincing claims and advertisement of this product.

[REVIEW] 16BRAND 16 Skin Guide Book Marine Collagen Shower Mask

16 Brand 16 Skin Guide Book Marine Collagen Shower Review

16BRAND 16 Skin Guide Book Marine Collagen Shower Mask was purchased Cosmeperks.

I have been dying to try 16Brand/Chosungah products so I jumped when the chance was given to me. I also purchased one of their famous tiny eyeshadow brushes, but that is a different story.

This mask’s design is attractive and the promises are tempting. The brand is well known in Korea for its quality, so even if you don’t try it yourself you should at least read this.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Etude House Play Color Eyes Lavender Land

Etude House Play Color Eyes Lavender Land Review

Etude House Play Color Eyes Lavender Land Review:

This is the new Etude House palette from their most famous palette collection. Last year they released the Cherry Blossom palette around the same time, and it’s still super popular (as it should). They also had ones that were less popular (mainly due to Korean taste) such as the Ice Van and Beach Party (they had oranges, greens, browns, I guess it was just not their style). They also had semi-popular ones like Peach Farm, Juice Bar and Wine Party – they are good and a part of everyone’s staples… and maybe that was their problem: the brand’s classic palettes with browns have at least one shade tending to those.

But lavender! Oh sweet lavender. It’s almost pink, so Koreans like it. It’s unique. You can pair it with burgundy-ish (included in the palette), with browns (also in), with purples (also). And they managed to make it tending to both warm and cool tones, and that tone thing is very trendy in Korea right now. Let me say, I just wish it came with a lavender candle as a gift!

[REVIEW] SOME BY MI Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Toner

SOME BY MI Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Toner Review

SOME BY MI Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Toner was purchased by Cosmeperks.

To my ears, SOME BY MI is a pretty new brand. It’s well-known to most people for the 30-days Miracle line, while the brand proclaim itself to have relatively safe and beneficial ingredients. It also prints the brand’s logo beside this tagline : “SOME BY MI’S MIND : Remarkable skin transformation from natural ingredients’. Fascinating, right?

Although I have relatively normal skin, I always think that uneven skin tone is the unresolved one problem for me. I’ve been rambling around many skincare products yet I found no treatment to make my complexion more even. So when I was given the rare chance to do a sponsored review from Nigama (Cosmeperks), I gladly accepted the option of SOME BY MI Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Toner. This product was newly-launched and the advertisement is quite captivating too (must be one of the reasons why it was on the list), so had to go with this!

However, before we move out, I’m gonna warn you that this review could be a little bit long, seeing that this toner contains vitamin C as one of its star ingredients. Personally, I have very scant experience with this component, so I’ll include some research to support my review.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Holika Holika Velvet Blanket Tint 01 Cream Rosy

Holika Holika Velvet Blanket Tint 01 Cream Rosy Review

Holika Holika Velvet Blanket Tint 01 Cream Rosy was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Korean brands started to release more lip creams, following the liquid lip trend all over the world. They tend to advertise it as ‘Velvet Tint’ or ‘Creamy Tint’ while the actual product is not a tint at all. If you follow Korean beauty trend, then you must’ve seen ton of road-shop brands releasing their own version of liquid lipsticks.

One of them is Holika Holika. They released Velvet Blanket Tint not too long ago and I’m so excited when Nigama offered me to try the product because it’s been in my wish list since the first time I saw it. It’s not a first time for Holika Holika to make a liquid lipstick but actually this time they seem to promote the product really well, I’ve seen a lot of reviews from Korean beauty bloggers all over the internet and YouTube.

They have 6 shades available to choose from and I have to say all the shades are so pretty. The shades are in the neutral side and I think it’s smart for Holika Holika to make these type of shades since these are ‘safe’ shades so everyone will curious and want to try all of the shades including me (I’m a sucker for these shades, it’s hard to choose only 1!).

[REVIEW] 2019 NEW Missha Time Revolution Night Repair PROBIO Ampoule

Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule Review

Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule was purchased by Cosmeperks.

This ampoule and I have a history! I was a part of the test group for those percentages you see on advertisements, but it was a blind testing and we didn’t even know the brand. As soon as I received it, just by smelling, I knew it was a Missha ampoule. Maybe I used a lot of them already?

They didn’t tell us it was a night ampoule, so I used it during the day too. Eventually the product was released, and they revealed the name of the blind product. Of course I was so excited to be a part of it, when Nigama asked me if I wanted to review it I didn’t hesitate (I didn’t even check the price) because I was already so in love with it.
