[REVIEW] Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer

Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer Review

Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer Review:

In truth, I bought this product due to its hype online from well-known Youtubers to blog reviews. It seemed to be featured everywhere, and at the time, I didn’t exactly have a holy grail for my primer.

So, when I was in London, I made the decision to purchase the Too Faced Hangover Primer, a primer designed to make you look like you’ve been well-hydrated and have gotten sufficient sleep — two things that I’m always lacking!

[REVIEW] Klavuu White Pearlsation Ideal Actress Backstage Cream

Klavuu White Pearlsation Ideal Actress Backstage Cream Review

Klavuu White Pearlsation Ideal Actress Backstage Cream Review:

Klavuu is such an underrated brand in the sea of Korean beauty brands. It’s the nation’s first beauty company that features pearls in all their products. The benefits of pearl include hydration and brightening, ultimately creating a radiant and glowy complexion.

Around Christmas time last year, I was searching for the perfect makeup base, and stumbled into the huge Klavuu store in Myeongdong. There, I found out about their White Pearlisation Ideal Actress Backstage Cream (what a mouthful!), which is actually the brand’s best-selling product.

So, does it hold its own?

[REVIEW] Lilybyred Luv Beam Cheek Blush 3 Indie Pink

Lilybyred Luv Beam Cheek 3 Indie Pink Review

Lilybyred Luv Beam Cheek Blush 3 Indie Pink Review:

You may have seen Lilybyred featured often on many Korean beauty Youtubers’ tutorials and favorites videos. With Kwon Hyun-bin as the main face of the brand, Lilybyred takes on a bold and welcome choice to promote beauty for both men and women. While they don’t have an entire range of products for a full face of makeup, they do receive lots of hype for the products that they do release, including powder blushes, lip tints, and eyeliners.

I bought their Luv Beam Cheek in #3 Indie Pink not just because I wanted to try out the brand, but because of its gorgeous shade that I knew I would use often.

So how did it perform?

Huxley Secret of Sahara Brightly Ever After Essence Review

Huxley Secret of Sahara Brightly Ever After Essence Review:

Huxley is a pretty niche brand that is actually picking up some steam in South Korea as well as in the rest of the world. It features prickly pear seed oil from the Sahara Desert in all of its products to promote a healthy and glowing complexion.

I was recommended the Brightly Ever After Essence for brightening and hydrating effects by a close friend, and decided to give it a go.

So, does it live up to its hype?

[REVIEW] Loreal Paris Color Riche Metallic Addiction 631 Rose Champagne

Loreal Paris Color Riche Metallic Addiction 631 Rose Champagne Review

Loreal Paris Color Riche Metallic Addiction 631 Rose Champagne Review:

Metallic lips have been making a strong return recently — they’re an easy way to spice up any look in a flash (pun intended!). I have been on the hunt for an affordable, easy-to-wear, moisturizing, not-too-in-your-face metallic lipstick (which admittedly in retrospect seems to be quite the list of criteria).

At the beauty section of the duty-free store in the airport, this newly released series of Color Riche Metallic Addiction lipsticks by L’oréal Paris caught my eye. I had previously seen these on my feed on Facebook, but never really had the chance to swatch them in store. They looked very promising, so I purchased #631 Rose Champagne, which is a subtle glossy light pink shade with gold glitter. Let’s see how it holds up!

[REVIEW] Moonshot The First Moon Drawing Gravity 4001 Highlighter

Moonshot The First Moon Drawing Gravity 4001 Highlighter Review

Moonshot The First Moon Drawing Gravity 4001 Highlighter Review:

I’ve been travelling quite a bit recently, so I’ve had to really narrow down and select products that are travel-friendly and convenient to use. Highlighters are actually a very versatile product as they can not only be used to give dimension to the high points of the face, but also as an eyeshadow or even as a lip topper to give some much needed glam and glow.

At Moonshot’s flagship store in Myeongdong, Seoul, these chubby sticks — the highlighter, to be specific — caught my eye. Highly pigmented, they had an extremely smooth texture that simply glided onto the back of my hand. The highlighter (shade 4001) had a slight holographic duochrome effect, which is actually quite rare for Korean products, and it ended up being one of the two Moonshot products that I purchased.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at how The First Moon Drawing: Gravity holds up!

[REVIEW] Moonshot Multi Protection UV FIXER SPF50+ PA+++

Moonshot Multi Protection UV FIXER SPF50+ PA+++ Review

Moonshot Multi Protection UV FIXER SPF50+ PA+++ Review:

The summer season in Hong Kong means extreme heat and humidity — not the best conditions for my oily and acne-prone skin. It also makes skincare and makeup application a bit of a challenge — it’s always a race to put my “face” on before I start sweating it off. When I found out that Moonshot was coming out with a primer that claimed to not only make makeup last longer but also provide strong UV protection, I knew I had to give it a go.

I have tried a few Moonshot makeup products in the past and haven’t been disappointed, so I had high hopes for their newly-released Multi Protection UV FIXER SPF 50+ PA+++.

I'ts Skin Life Color Lip Crush Matte 09 Show Me What U Got & 10 What the Heaven Review

It’s Skin Life Color Lip Crush Matte 09 Show Me What U Got & 10 What the Heaven Review:

I only jumped onto the liquid lipstick bandwagon recently, but once I did, I was and still am always on the hunt for a good liquid lip — pigmented, transfer-proof, and non-drying. There was a lot of buzz surrounding It’s Skin’s extensive line of Life Color Lip Crush Matte lipsticks, which promises great pigment while remaining long-lasting and non-drying, so these naturally flew to the top of my “To-Try” list.

This product makes some very tempting and alluring claims to achieve the perfect lip, but do they really live up to their hype?

[REVIEW] Skinfood Fresh Fruit Juice Extraction Blush 04 Berry Beet Juice

Skinfood Fresh Fruit Juice Extraction Blush 04 Berry Beet Juice Review

Skinfood Fresh Fruit Juice Extraction Blush 04 Berry Beet Juice Review:

Powder blush, at least for me, can sometimes come off as fake-looking and patchy, especially during the dry winter seasons. Plus, it needs to be applied with a brush, which requires the extra time and effort. As someone who literally only has five minutes to get ready, every second counts.

Having heard that liquid blush could give you a natural flush, lit from within, that actually lasts all day, I was immediately curious as to whether these were true. When I scoured the Internet for affordable, skin-friendly liquid blushes, the first product that came up was Skinfood’s Fresh Fruit Juice Extraction Blush, a watery blush enriched with various fruit extracts to create a natural rosy look. When I eagerly swatched all the shades at the closest Skinfood store, I immediately fell in love. Without further ado, here is my review!
