[REVIEW] Clio Kill Cover Airy Fit Concealer 3.5 Vanilla

Clio Kill Cover Airy Fit Concealer 3.5 Vanilla Review

Clio Kill Cover Airy Fit Concealer 3.5 Vanilla Review:

Concealer isn’t a product that I play around with too much — if I have one that works, then I stick with it. However, the Clio Kill Cover Airy Fit Concealer kept coming up on my radar, be it through YouTube makeup videos, Instagram posts, or online blog reviews. Everyone was raving about it, and given Clio’s pretty decent track record of base products, I decided to give it go.

I’ve used this in both very hot and humid weather, as well as in much cooler winter weather; how does it hold up?

[REVIEW] Cezanne Natural Cheek N AUTUMN COLOR 16 Cassis Rose

Cezanne Natural Cheek N AUTUMN COLOR 16 Cassis Rose Review

Cezanne Natural Cheek N AUTUMN COLOR 16 Cassis Rose Review:

Cezanne is a major drugstore cosmetics brand in Japan, and is known for their wide variety of high-quality makeup products. With simple but extremely compact casing showcasing a huge range of colors in their blushers, eyeshadows, and more, who could resist?

I ended up taking home the Cezanne Natural Cheek N in #16 Cassis Rose which is the perfect autumn and winter shade of blush. To be honest, I don’t have high expectations for blushers — they just need to stay put for when my makeup’s on — but Cezanne really blew me away with this product!

[REVIEW] FLOWFUSHI 38ºC Lip Treatment +1ºC Natural Baby Pink

FLOWFUSHI 38ºC Lip Treatment +1ºC Natural Baby Pink Review

FLOWFUSHI 38ºC Lip Treatment +1ºC Natural Baby Pink Review:

Winter is coming, and with that brings cold and dry weather — the worst possible combination that is guaranteed to wreak havoc on my already constantly-dry lips.

During these months, I put away almost all my lip makeup — there’s no point in wearing lipstick when it’s only going to come off in patches of dry lip skin (ew!) by midday. Don’t even get me started on re-application; there’s no way that will go smoothly (both literally and figuratively).

The FLOWFUSHI 38ºC Lip Treatment has been highly raved about as an effective treatment that also doubles as a tinted gloss to give a bit of oomph to the lips. It has an interesting concept — basing its entire line of these lip products on temperature as well as focusing on bacteria on the skin to enhance lip color.

How did it fare?

Opera Lip Tint 01 Red Review

Opera Lip Tint 01 Red Review:

Having placed first in both the well-respected 2017 Cosme Best Cosmetics Awards Mid-Year and Year-End in the lip tint category, it’s clear that Opera is doing something amazing with their lip tints. Everywhere you go in Japan, you will find people pulling out these lip tints for touch ups. A friend that I talked had gone through four of these already!

Sheer lip tints are perfect for an everyday look because of their ease of application without the compromise of color. The Opera Lip Tints also promise lasting wear without the stickiness or dryness that lip tints are often prone to.

Is this too good to be true?

Opera Sheer Lip Color N 22 Natural Pink N Review

Opera Sheer Lip Color N 22 Natural Pink N Review:

Japanese lip products are famed for their great application and moisturizing properties, and Opera in particular has been one of the must-have brands among the sea of unending lip tints, lipsticks, and liquid lipsticks.

Their Sheer Lip Color is perhaps lesser known than their famed Lip Tint, however, that absolutely does not speak to the quality and performance of the former.

So how does it fare?

The Face Shop Single Blush BR01 Dust Rose Review

The Face Shop Single Blush BR01 Dust Rose Review:

It took me a while to get my hands on The Face Shop’s Single Blush in Dust Rose, just because it is so darn popular. It was sold out all the time in Hong Kong and restocking takes forever, so imagine my surprise when I saw hundreds of these blushes at one of The Face Shop branches in Myeongdong!

Clearly it’s a well-loved product, best known for its shade in Dust Rose (#BR01) which has a more sophisticated vibe that works well with pretty much any bold eye or lip look in providing a natural flush of color.

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!

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?

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?
