[REVIEW] Nature Republic Provence Intensive Ampoule Foundation 01 Light Beige

Nature Republic Provence Intensive Ampoule Foundation 01 Light Beige Review

Nature Republic Provence Intensive Ampoule Foundation 01 Light Beige Review:

I went to Nature Republic near my place weeks ago and I saw this foundation. I never tried any of Nature Republic base product so I was kinda curious and wanted to try one. They have several type of foundations but the name of this foundation itself caught my attention.

From its name, seems the foundation contains ampoule which I believe is very beneficial for the skin. I love when base makeups used skin care ingredients so it’s like I got 2 benefits in one product. It also contain red ginseng, royal jelly, and propolis which is good for moisturizing and firming the skin.

The price is a little bit ‘up there’ but I think it’s fair that it costs more than their other foundations since it has good ingredients. Unfortunately, the shade range is very disappointing. It has only 2 shades option and both shades are so light. I think only very fair to light skinned people can use this foundation.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] 2018 New Etude House Active Proof Shield Wear Color Tint PK001 Namaste Yoga Pink

Etude House Active Proof Shield Wear Color Tint PK001 Namaste Yoga Pink Review

Etude House Active Proof Shield Wear Color Tint PK001 Namaste Yoga Pink Review:

Since it’s almost summer in Korea, many brands are releasing their summer collection. I love summer collection because they are more waterproof, sweatproof, and stay all day long. One of the brands that releases the summer products early is Etude House. No wonder, because Etude House is known as a brand that always making products according to the season (they even release a mini USB fan and a drinking bottle special for the summer!).

Their summer collection is called Active Proof and it consists of lip tints, skin base (more like a foundation), mascara, sunscreens, soothing gel, shower tissue, eyebrow drawing tip, and even a cooler! Just from its name, I can see that the collection will have good lasting power and stay all day. Definitely a must have for oily-skinned girls.

Since I can’t find the skin base yet in my country, I purchased the Color Tint first. They only have 3 shades which is disappointing and the color options are red, orange, and pink. It’s too basic in my opinion but I still purchased it nonetheless.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Innisfree Vivid Creamy Tint 04 Tangerine Slush

Innisfree Vivid Creamy Tint 04 Tangerine Slush Review

Innisfree Vivid Creamy Tint 04 Tangerine Slush Review:

Innisfree did a collaboration project with Snoopy months ago (or its it last year? I’m not quite sure) and when I saw it at my nearest Innisfree store, I fell in love with the Creamy Vivid Tint. It’s really good and worth the price but they only had 3 shades. That’s why I decided to get another shade but this time is from the regular edition. I saw some reviews saying that they have different performance so I’m a little bit curious about that.

In the regular line, they have 12 shades available, quite a lot for a lip tint but guess what, most of the shades are pretty similar. The shade range consist of pinks, reds, oranges, and berries. I swatched most of them on the store and I have to say the shades were very similar indeed. Even with the bright lighting on the store I had a hard time to differentiate each shades.

The one that caught my attention the most is the orange shade 04 Tangerine Slush. Not because I love orange lip color but that shade was so bright and eye-catching, it was the most different shade among the 12 shades so of course I purchased it right away.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] 2018 New 3CE Soft Lip Lacquer Tawny Red

3CE Soft Lip Lacquer Tawny Red Review

3CE Soft Lip Lacquer Tawny Red was purchased by Cosmeperks.

I really love 3CE lip products. I have some of them and so far they do have good quality and worth the price. Their latest release, the Velvet Lip Tint is definitely one of my most favorite Korean lip tints and imagine how excited I am when they launch a new lip collection!

This time they launch a soft lip lacquer which I think is not new for 3CE since they released a lip lacquer years ago (but now discontinued). They claim it as a classic matte with a very good pigmentation and won’t budge off. If it’s true to its claim, I would be so happy because I love matte lips and since I love the Velvet Tint so much, it makes me have so high expectation of this product.

They have 10 shades available for this collection and I have to say the color range is very similar to the Velvet Tint and the Mood Recipe lipsticks. It has 6 neutrals shade with 2 reds and 2 purples. Not the best shade range in my opinion but because I’m a fan of neutral lip color, it’s really hard to choose only one color.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Peripera Ink Airy Velvet 12 Bloomy Orange

Peripera Ink Airy Velvet 12 Bloomy Orange Review

Peripera Ink Airy Velvet 12 Bloomy Orange Review:

Last year, I purchased the newest Peripera Airy Ink Velvet shade. I remember when they first launched, people were so excited and the lip tint was hyped everywhere including my country. Every online stores sold it and almost all shades were sold out within days.

I did buy it too and the shade I got was called 05 Elf Light Rose if I remember correctly but I didn’t like it (I think it was just me because everyone else seem loved it so much). Then they launched another 5 new shades for Fall collection and the colors were so pretty but I was hesitate to get it because I’m afraid the quality would be similar to the old one.

Until about 2 – 3 months ago, I saw Peripera launched another 5 shades for the Spring collection and some reviews I watched were saying how the new collection performed better. The shades were more colorful as well so finally I decided to try it once more.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] New 2018 Peripera Ink The Gelato 01 Lively Red

Peripera Ink The Gelato 01 Lively Red Review

Peripera Ink The Gelato 01 Lively Red Review:

I’m surprised by how Peripera keeps releasing a new lip tint collection and this time they (once again) extended the Ink Tint family. If I remember correctly, they launched the Sugar Glow Tint just a few months ago but now they launch another collection called Ink The Gelato.

From the website, the Ink The Gelato is described as a ‘gelato like lip lacquer’ and it has a non-drying matte finish. In this new collection, they have 5 shades as usual and I’m sure they will add more shades in the future if this lip tint sells well on the market (and guess what, they already have 2 new shades for summer!).

Because it’s a very new product, I have a hard time in finding my local seller who sell it but I’m lucky to be able to purchase one when my trusted seller put it on sale. I got mine in shade 01 Lively Red but they also have a coral, pink, orange, and deep red shade as well. From the shade range, I think it’s a basic Korean lip tint shades.

[REVIEW] Pony Effect Ultimate Prep Primer Hydrate

Pony Effect Ultimate Prep Primer Hydrate Review

Pony Effect Ultimate Prep Primer Hydrate Review:

I’m sure every K-beauty enthusiasts must have heard Pony’s name before, at least once in their lives. Pony, or Park Hye Mi, was an ulzzang (best face/someone with beautiful face) from South Korea and she started getting more famous after her segment Pony Beauty Diary on InsiteTV became a big hit.

Since then she started her own makeup tutorial channel and became more famous internationally and honestly her makeup skill is no joke! She even worked as Korean idols makeup artist. She announced her collaboration with Memebox but then she made her own makeup line called Pony Effect.

I do have oily yet rough skin texture and it’s very hard for me to find a good product that will match my skin condition. If I used product for oily skin, my skin texture becomes more rough and dry but if I used moisturizing product, it makes my skin produces more sebum.

After researching about my skin, turns out I have a dehydrated skin and hydrating products will be the best solution for me. That’s why I choose this primer because it has ‘Hydrate’ option whereas her other primers are for mattifying and moisturizing only.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] New 2018 Mamonde Creamy Tint Squeeze Lip 10 Retro Rose

New 2018 Mamonde Creamy Tint Squeeze Lip 10 Retro Rose Review

Mamonde Creamy Tint Squeeze Lip 10 Retro Rose was purchased by Cosmeperks.

To be honest I never heard anything about this product until I visited Aritaum’s website. I think Mamonde didn’t promote this lip tint as much as they did with the infamous Creamy Tint Color Balm (and the fact that Park Shin Hye used it on her drama really made a huge hype). I have the Creamy Tint Color Balm and I really liked it so I was excited to try this one and see if it’s better or not.

Among the 10 shades, I chose the shade 10 Retro Rose. From the shade range, I think some are not too different with the original line of Creamy Tint Color Balm. Most of the shades are reds but they do have some oranges and pinks as well.

It’s a little bit hard to find this on my country and I guess 10 Retro Rose is one of the best selling shade since there’s no stock for this shade on every online stores that I visited, even YesStyle and Amazon didn’t have this shade on stock! I guess I’m really lucky to be able to get this shade without knowing it’s the best selling one.

Nature Republic Real Gel Tint 03 Orange Review

Nature Republic Real Gel Tint 03 Orange Review:

I was so ecstatic when I saw Nature Republic official store finally opened near where I’m living! I went there when it had its grand opening and it was so chaotic because it’s too crowded.

I was swatching their lip tints section and found this tint. The price wasn’t expensive and the swatch was pretty good. Actually I’m not an avid fan of Nature Republic, I rarely tried their products and the only item I have from them is the Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera Gel 92% (which I’m not to fond of).

After I bought it, I searched some reviews about this product but so far I only found a small amount of reviews so I thought maybe this product wasn’t too hyped both in Korea and internationally. That just made me more curious to try the lip tint.
