3CE Mood Recipe 2 Matte Lip Color 221 MellowFlower Review:

I was always intrigued by 3CE’s products for their simple packaging. It was totally up my alley. Then, when I was scrolling through Yesstyle I first saw this product. I loved the shade, but I was afraid to purchase since it’s a matte lipstick. I’m usually not a fan of matte lipsticks, so when I got it through the Yesstyle Advent Calendar, I was so happy to give it a try!

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] BANILA Co Covericious Power Fit Foundation 19 Cream

BANILA Co Covericious Power Fit Foundation 19 Cream Review

BANILA Co Covericious Power Fit Foundation 19 Cream Review:

I’ve been wanting to try this foundation for a really long time. If I’m not mistaken, this was released back in March or April this year but at that time I wasn’t aware of the foundation, not until I saw the reviews a month ago. I only saw some (I think it was less than 5) reviews about it in English and it’s surprising because BANILA Co is a pretty famous Korean beauty brand internationally, but there are tons of videos and blogs talking about it in Korean because it was so hyped and popular there.

BANILA CO is one of the ‘up-there’ road shop Korean brands, means they have more expensive price compared to other road shop brands like Etude, Skinfood, The Saem etc yet doesn’t belong to the luxurious brands either. In my country BANILA CO is pretty expensive so the only way I can afford the foundation is by buying it directly from Korea to get more affordable price.

BANILA CO advertised it as a ‘full coverage’ foundation with lightweight feeling and stay up to 36 hours of wearing with Hydrolyzed Collagen that will help with skin elasticity. After I read the claim I was so intrigued! As a woman who almost being 30, any product containing collagen is a must try so let’s see if the foundation will do wonders on my skin or not.

[REVIEW] Innisfree My Styling Recipe Hair Fixing Water Spray

Innisfree My Styling Recipe Hair Fixing Water Spray Review

Innisfree My Styling Recipe Hair Fixing Water Spray Review:

I have not been using hair spray for quite some time, as the last hair spray I tried was not very effective. I had borrowed my mother’s hair spray just to try it out, but the spray made my hair strands stick together in a weird way. There were also white specks left on my hair which I had to pick out manually. It was difficult to spray consistently over the hair to make sure these white specks don’t appear.
It seemed like so much trouble, and so I stayed away from hair spray for the past few years.

I came across the new Water Spray from Innisfree recently, which is part of their expanding hair care / styling line. The product highlighted that its water-type formula will not harden the hair or leave white specks, which are basically my two concerns with using hair spray. I tried the tester in the store, and was quite happy with the result. My hair has become quite dry and frizzy after repeated dye jobs, and so I decided to give this spray a try.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] New 2019 3CE Cloud Lip Tint Peach Tease

3CE Cloud Lip Tint Peach Tease Review

3CE Cloud Lip Tint Peach Tease was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Cloud lip tint is the latest release from 3 Concept Eyes, not long after they released the Smoothing lip tint. 3CE is one of many brands who keeps releasing new products so it’s not unexpected to see they came with a brand new item regularly. I am a fan of 3CE so it’s always exciting to see the new releases and I’m very grateful to Nigama who once again trust me and offer me this lip tint to try!

They claim this lip tint has a satin finish with ‘fluffy cloud-like’ formula, thus the name but maybe because I’ve tried so many tints with similar description to this one, I assume it’s a lip tint with soft texture and velvet finish. I watched their advertisement on YouTube too and from what I’d seen, my assumption was spot on. If you saw the video, then you must’ve seen that the lip tint is indeed a velvet lip tint.

Since it’s a very new release, it’s a little bit hard to find online stores who sell it. I think in another month or two, other online stores will start to sell it and you will get easier access to get the lip tint to try. For now, if you find a store who sells it and want to buy it, make sure that the product is original because 3CE is known as a brand who got copied the most (and there are tons of shops sell fake 3CE product).

[REVIEW] OMI Menturm Verdio UV Moisture Essence SPF50+ PA++++

OMI Menturm Verdio UV Moisture Essence SPF50+ PA++++ Review

OMI Menturm Verdio UV Moisture Essence SPF50+ PA++++ Review:

If you like Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence, you will probably love this sunscreen too. To me, this is all the goodness of Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence minus the alcohol and fragrance. So you won’t have to suffer from the hideous smell of alcohol in disguise of very heavy citrusy fragrance and it won’t irritate your sensitive skin too. Honestly, after testing it out, I keep wondering why people don’t talk about it because it truly deserves the love.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Missha Cover Maestro Tip Concealer 17 Pianissimo

Missha Cover Maestro Tip Concealer 17 Pianissimo Review

Missha Cover Maestro Tip Concealer 17 Pianissimo Review:

I guess I was so late in discovering this concealer because when I was browsing to find a good Korean concealer to replace my beloved A’Pieu moist creamy concealer, this showed up with the most good reviews. Everyone was talking and did review on it and I wonder how I didn’t hear anything about it before. Even Morgan from TheBeautyBreakdown, my favorite Youtuber, said that this concealer is pretty good and didn’t crease on her. I was sold once I saw her review about it.

The price is very affordable for a product from Missha and I’m happy to see that they have more than 2 shades available. I always had a hard time in finding the perfect concealer shade for me since I need a lighter shade than my skin tone because I used concealer to highlight my under eyes area. That’s why I’m excited to see they have a shade light enough!

If I’m not mistaken, they also have the pot/cream version of this concealer but in my experience, cream concealer never worked on me so I picked the liquid version. Just for information, a cream concealer usually has more coverage than a liquid one so if you like this concealer but need a better coverage, maybe you can try the pot version.

[REVIEW] SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica Cream

SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica Cream Review

SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica Cream Review:

Beauty trends may revolve and changes every now and then, including the star ingredients in beauty products. There were times when almost all brands suddenly developed products with snail mucin, aloe vera, galactomyces, etc. Looking back in 2018, I think centella asiatica is the star ingredient! So many beauty brands invented new products with centella asiatica in their formulation and it became one of the selling points. No wonder, centella asiatica (also known as tiger grass or ‘pegagan’) has been famous for generations as medication that soothes skin damages, hydrates, and reduces uneven skin tones.

With all the hype marketing, of course I fell into Skin1004 Centella Asiatica Cream when it was launched! I couldn’t find many reviews on this moisturizer because Skin1004 is more famous for its Madagascar Cenetella Asiatica ampoule and whenever I Googled, reviews for the ampoule popped up. From the few reviews I found, they said Skin1004 Cream is lightweight and non-sticky, so as a normal-to-oily skin bearer, I chose to go with it. A week later, Skin1004 Centella Asiatica Cream arrived to my house.

[REVIEW] Skin Aqua Tone Up UV Essence Mint Green SPF50+ PA++++

Skin Aqua Tone Up UV Essence Mint Green SPF50+ PA++++ Review

Skin Aqua Tone Up UV Essence Mint Green SPF50+ PA++++ Review:

I thought this product would be a nice replacement for my Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence in the sense that it provides gentle correction to even out the complexion, so I can save time by skipping CC cream. I have heard people raving about the original Tone Up Essence in lavender purple hue. So when Rohto released the mint green version this summer for redness-prone skin, I decided to give it a try to justify the hype.
