[REVIEW+SWATCHES] NEW The Face Shop Gelato Tint 05 Brown Bonbon Chocolate

The Face Shop Gelato Tint 05 Brown Bonbon Chocolate Review

The Face Shop Gelato Tint 05 Brown Bonbon Chocolate Review:

No one can deny that The Face Shop is one of the best in making an eye-catching packaging. Their Coca Cola and Apeach collections can prove that and most people I know (including me) are buying their products just because of the packaging only. I’m weak to cute packaging so it’s not weird that once again I purchased their newest release, the Gelato Tint just because of the packaging.

I was browsing for some new products on one of my favorite Korean beauty shops when I saw this lip tint. Let’s say just the advertisement alone already made me want to purchase the whole shades range. They actually made it in an ice cream shape! Who can resist that? The other reason is that it’s almost rare for Face Shop to make a new product (they usually just re-package the product in different packaging) so I’m curious to try it.

The new lip tint, the Gelato Tint is available in 6 shades and some of the shades look so similar to each other so I have a hard time in choosing the most different one. The shades are basically only pinks and corals so in the end I ended up choosing based on the flavor only. They have different flavors such as vanilla, mint, watermelon, chocolate, grape, and mango. So if you don’t know which shade to buy because of the similarity, maybe you can choose according to your favorite flavor.

[REVIEW] Clio Nudism Moist Fit Powder Pact 02 Lingerie

Clio Nudism Moist Fit Powder Pact 02 Lingerie Review

Clio Nudism Moist Fit Powder Pact 02 Lingerie Review:

As a girl with a very oily T-zone, to set that area with a powder is a must. My cheeks area has dry patches so mainly I use powder only on the T-zone, chin, a little bit on the outer part of my cheek (just to set the foundation so blush, bronzer, and highlighter can be applied more smoothly), and under eyes area to set my concealer.

I had tried so many powders, from compact powder to loose powder but so far I found that my skin hates loose powder. It’s too drying and emphasis my textures while for compact powder, they are too cakey and I found only one powder that looks good on my skin but unfortunately it’s too expensive and I can’t keep purchasing it.

When I was searching for a good Korean powder (since it’s more affordable and easy to get), I saw Clio has a ‘Moist Powder’ as part of their Nudism collection. I knew Nudism cushion is really popular but I never saw anyone talking about this powder but based on their website, the powder seems to have a moist effect and won’t make skin looks dry. They claim this powder will suit every skin type, even dry skin because it contains essence that gives moisture while it mattifies the skin at the same time. I was really excited to find a powder with a skincare benefit!

They only have 3 shades and from the picture, I’m pretty sure the shades are good for fair to light-medium skin tones. Not rare for a Korean brand but usually Clio has wider shade range so it’s a bit unexpected for them to have 3 shades only.

Etude House Soft Drink Tint OR201 Grapefruit Fantasy Review

Etude House Soft Drink Tint OR201 Grapefruit Fantasy Review:

When I saw Etude posting their latest product, the Soft Drink Tint, I thought the packaging is very cute but the color selection is pretty basic and similar to each other. I didn’t plan to get it because of the shades but then I read Ana’s review along with the complete soft drink tint swatches (thanks to her for showing the swatches) so I got to know what the shades will look in real life.

The tint is available in 5 different shades, 4 being bold, vivid colors and the other one is more like a lip topper with a glossy finish. Among those 4 colored shades, I pick the shade Grapefruit Fantasy because it’s more my shade. Actually I wanted to get the red one at first but when I saw how red it was, I changed my mind.

It is summer in Korea so I think this tint is perfect because it has summer vibe and as its name, soft drink is really popular when the weather is hot. As expected, Etude House is one brand that follow the trend and always giving us new products with cute and unexpected packaging.

[REVIEW] Mamonde All Stay Foundation SPF25 PA++ 13 Porcelain

Mamonde All Stay Foundation SPF25 PA++ 13 Porcelain Review

Mamonde All Stay Foundation SPF25 PA++ 13 Porcelain Review:

Mamonde is one of the most well-known Korean beauty brands internationally. Thanks to their brand ambassador Park Shin Hye years ago, their lip tints were hyped and sold out almost everywhere and their cushions were famous as well. I never tried any of their complexion product so I was intrigued when I heard they launched a new foundation.

All Stay Foundation is the latest foundation from Mamonde and I think they release it last May (I’m not too sure so don’t count me on it). I was browsing and searching for information about this product and from what I found, a lot of Korean beauty bloggers had tried it and their reviews were mix. Some said it was their favorite foundation while others said it wasn’t worth the money.

Regardless of the mix reactions, this foundation was picked by Allure Korea as their foundation of the month so I decided to purchase it and try it myself. One thing I love was they have 6 shades in total which pretty rare for a Korean foundation! Unfortunately while the fairest shade is perfect for my fair complexion, the darkest shade are not deep enough for deeper skin tone. I can say the darkest shade will suit medium-tan skin tone the best.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Innisfree Vivid Slimfit Tint 01 Ice Peach Tea

Innisfree Vivid Slimfit Tint 01 Ice Peach Tea Review

Innisfree Vivid Slimfit Tint 01 Ice Peach Tea Review: (Product purchased by Cosmeperks)

Innisfree recently just launched another lip product called the Vivid Slim Fit Tint. It’s a lip tint with a vivid pigmentation and the product size is pretty slim and tall, exactly true to its name. They have 7 shades for the first launch and judging from the swatch picture, it’s a pretty matte lip tint.

They launched another collection called the Jeju Color Picker with 3 new shades and I ordered it already from my local seller, but they sent me the wrong product and turned out they got the wrong items too from the supplier but Nigama was so nice to let me try this product instead of the Jeju Color Picker one!

Among the 7 shades, most of them are in pinks and reds, as usual for a Korean lip product but I’m sure everyone can find their favorite shade since most of the colors, even though they lean towards warm tone, are pretty universal and can be worn by every skin tone, from fair to deep skin tones.

[REVIEW] Etude House Active Proof Liquid Fitting Base SPF50+ PA++++ Light Beige

Etude House Active Proof Liquid Fitting Base SPF50+ PA++++ Light Beige Review

Etude House Active Proof Liquid Fitting Base SPF50+ PA++++ Light Beige Review:

With the satisfying result of the Etude’s Active Proof Shield Wear Color Tint, it makes this foundation listed on my ‘next-to-try’ list. I’ve been trying to find it everywhere but the only way I can get it is by get it directly from Korea and it takes 4 to 6 weeks so I decide to wait until someone stock it and I’m so happy that finally my local seller has it on stock!

So Active Proof Liquid Fitting Base is a part of their latest summer collection, the Active Proof line. Consists of various products, this collection is perfect for summer season since it’s waterproof, lightweight, and stay all day. I don’t know exactly what this product is since Etude House didn’t explain if it’s a foundation, BB cream, or just a skin tint.

The ‘waterproof and stay all day part’ sounds too good to be true but the lip tint performs exactly as they said so I believed them and decide to try the foundation. If it’s truly stay all day, it’d be a good news for everyone with oily skin.

But unfortunately, they only make it in 2 different shades. There are definitely more than 2 skin tones in this world but as usual from a Korean brand, you can’t expect them to have wide range of shades selection. I got the lightest shade but somehow I found it’s not exactly my perfect shade so the shade range really disappoints me.

[REVIEW] 3CE Take a Layer Tinted Water Tint Most Orange

3CE Take a Layer Tinted Water Tint Most Orange Review

3CE Take a Layer Tinted Water Tint Most Orange was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Finally summer is here and 3 Concept Eyes is the next brand in line that release a full collection for summer makeup. Actually they have the products on their website but I never noticed that they are for the summer collection and I thought it just a new launch from them.

Summer collection is one of my favorite launch because they usually are oily-skin friendly and last forever on the skin, even some come with waterproof formula which makes them twice better than the usual collection.

As one of the most up-to-date brands, 3CE launch their own summer collection called ‘Take A Layer’ and I believe it means we can layer the products to build pigmentation but still get a natural look and without getting cakey.

‘Take A Layer’ collection consists of water tints, multi pots, and set of nail polishes. It’s not a lot of products, I know, but the whole collection has a very summery vibe and look so much fun to try. I’m very excited that I was given a chance to try the water tint as the tint is my favorite product from the collection.

[REVIEW] Deciem Abnomaly Petrowhat? Lip Balm Bali aka Pineapple Flavour

Deciem Abnomaly Petrowhat? Lip Balm Bali aka Pineapple Flavour was purchased by Cosmeperks.

If you follow beauty trends, you must have heard about Deciem. They are known for their sub-brand called The Ordinary that specialized for skin care and make up which were very hyped last year. Their products are so budget-friendly and based on some reviews I read, the results on the skin are amazing. I always want to try their product but they always sold out here in my country so it’s really a war if you want to get something from them.

Recently Deciem launched another brand called Abnomaly and Petrowhat? is one of the first releases. Nigama gave me a chance to try their Petrowhat? (interesting name, I know) and I was so excited to try something different once in a while.

Petrowhat? is a lip and skin ointment in one product and they have 4 different flavors you can choose from. The flavor consists of Bali (pineapple), Milk (coconut milk), Rio (guava), and Baobab (I don’t know what flavor it is. The website even describes it as ‘what’s that?’ flavor). Among those 4 options, my local seller only has Bali and Baobab in stock so I choose the Bali one since I’m not sure what Baobab is.

The most exciting things from this ointment (especially if you are vegan) are that they are gluten-free, nut-free, alcohol-free, vegan, silicone-free, and even cruelty-free! I’m not vegan but I really appreciated that they didn’t test this on animals. They also replaced Petrolatum (thing you can find in most ointments that can cause clogged pores) with natural ingredients, that’s definitely a plus point for me.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Missha Wish Stone Tint Water Gel Vivid Pink

Missha Wish Stone Tint Water Gel Vivid Pink Review

Missha Wish Stone Tint Water Gel Vivid Pink Review:

About a week after I purchased the Pop Tastic Jelly Tint (which I disliked), I saw Missha releasing a new lip tint for their Festival collection and not gonna lie, the packaging is so pretty and they also made it in 2 different finishes.

They have water gel type with glossy finish and velvet type with a velvet finish. Both have 5 shades each and the shade range is very pretty and colorful. I had a hard time in deciding only one I would get but in the end I got the dark, vivid pinkish red one.

I purchased it when my Poptastic Jelly Tint had not arrived yet so my expectation was kinda low at that moment. The tint itself just arrived on my place a week ago and I already have my opinion for this product.
