PURITO Centella Green Level Recovery Cream Review

PURITO Centella Green Level Recovery Cream Review:

PURITO might not be a newcomer in the Korean skincare industry, and its motto to be a safe product somehow enhances people’s curiosity toward them. Note well that the brand PURITO comes from ‘purify’ (to purify natural ingredients to create safe and clean products) and ‘to’ (to go back to basic in order to strengthen and repair collapsed skin barriers). The brand itself had been quite popular since 2018, but I didn’t feel any desires to try it due to some personal preferences.

However, I was quite intrigued to try PURITO products due to its popularity as well as my concern to use products which main ingredient is anything but water. My first experience with PURITO was its Snail Repair Advanced Serum which I bought only a month before I unexpectedly ran out of my daily moisturizer too.

There were two options I considered; PURITO Deep Sea Water Cream and PURITO Centella Green Level Recovery Cream. No particular reason why I choose PURITO Centella Green Level Recovery Cream, so I still contemplate to buy the other one after this product ran out. I sincerely hoped this one wouldn’t be a flash in the pan, or else I wouldn’t try any PURITO products again considering my experience with PURITO Snail Repair Advanced Serum.

Lilybyred Mood Liar Velvet Tint 03 Apricot & 05 Plum Review:

I only tried lip tints once and that was a while ago when the original formula was so drying that it left me such a bad impression on lip tints of all kinds. However, given that brands have been working to improve formula, I am actually glad that I decided to give it another try and finally discovered these little gems. Yes, my ridiculously dry lips love these Lilybyred Mood Liar Velvet Tints.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Peripera Ink Tint Serum 01 Over Pretty

Peripera Ink Tint Serum 01 Over Pretty Review

Peripera Ink Tint Serum 01 Over Pretty Review:

It feels like Peripera just launched the Mood Blank collection yesterday but suddenly they came out with a new product! The newest Ink Tint Serum is a lip tint with serum-like effect to give your lips moistness with good pigmentation. I personally think it’s a good idea to launch this type of product as winter is coming and we need something to keep our lips dry in this cold season.

From the physical appearance, it’s not too different compared to other lip ink tint series from Peripera. I guess I always said this but I kinda hoping for them to make it in a new style of packaging or at least something unique but no, they always recycled their older packaging design for their new products.

[REVIEW] PURITO Snail Repair Advanced Serum

PURITO Snail Repair Advanced Serum Review

PURITO Snail Repair Advanced Serum Review:

PURITO brand has been quite a hype nowadays, isn’t it? It proclaims the products to be nature-friendly and safe, as well as the concepts. I’ve been contemplating to try some products of PURITO’s since both my moisturizer and morning serum were running out, but finally decided to buy PURITO serum first since my previous ELIZAVECCA CF-Nest 97% B-jo Serum diminished faster than I thought.

Besides PURITO Snail Repair Advanced Serum, I also considered PURITO Hyaluronic Acid Serum and PURITO Green Level Buffet Serum. This one finally prevailed because (1) its main ingredient is Snail Secretion Filtrate instead of water (like in PURITO Green Level Buffet Serum); and (2) its concern toward repairment which I really need while battling with pollution.

16Brand Fruit Chu Tint 05 Apricot Gummy Review

16Brand Fruit Chu Tint 05 Apricot Gummy Review:

When I was browsing for a new lip tint, I found this and my eyes are attracted to its name directly. I have tried a lipstick from 16Brand before and I found myself really liking the lipstick so when I saw that they came with a new lip product, I purchased it immediately. The price itself is not too expensive. It’s a bit higher than the lipstick but I guess it’s normal because usually a liquid lip product is slightly more expensive.

If I’m not mistaken, 16Brand has a ‘Chu’ collection for their lip products. They have ‘Taste Chu’ and ‘Fruity Chu’ lipstick series and judging by the name, I think this new tint is the liquid version of their ‘Fruity Chu’ lipstick and this time they make more shades available with wider variation. They have natural to bright shade range and of course I got the most natural one.

I know about 16Brand because a lot of Korean Youtubers were talking about their products but this time I can’t find any review about this tint. Even on YouTube I didn’t see anyone talking about this product. Maybe this tint is not as hyped as their older releases but that just makes me more curious to try because most of the times an unpopular product works perfectly well on me.

SOME BY MI Hyaluron Moisturizing Glow Luminous Ampoule Mask Review:

SOME BY MI has been quite a hype nowadays, isn’t it? It produces a wide range of products, whose SOME BY MI 30-days AHA BHA PHA Miracle Serum and SOME BY MI Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Toner I’ve already tried. Not long ago, SOME BY MI also launched sheet masks (yeay!), and they are SOME BY MI Hyaluron Moisturizing Glow Luminous Ampoule Mask, SOME BY MI Diamond Brightening Glow Luminous Ampoule Mask, and SOME BY MI Tea Tree Calming Glow Luminous Ampoule Mask.

Did you notice that their name all contains ‘Glow Luminous Ampoule Mask’? Isn’t it just natural for me to be tempted? Meanwhile, SOME BY MI masks are considerably quite pricey so I only bought one in the end : SOME BY MI Hyaluron Moisturizing Glow Luminous Ampoule Mask.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] 2019 NEW Peripera Mood Blank Collection Ink The Velvet 12 Point Red

Peripera Mood Blank Collection Ink The Velvet 12 Point Red Review

Peripera Mood Blank Collection Ink The Velvet 12 Point Red Review:

It’s not Peripera if they didn’t have a new collection every month. The new Mood Blank collection from Peripera finally arrived and in this collection they only have lip tints and a 4-pan eyeshadow palette. I don’t know why they decided to make only 2 products for this collection and in my opinion, I think it’s because they want to release something for the fall season (Peripera is famous for their fall collection).

The eyeshadow palette, even though it’s pretty, is not my type of product so I chose to try the tint instead. As usual, Peripera didn’t made a new tint and just threw some new shades to this collection using their infamous Ink the Velvet tint. I know Peripera launched tons of new product this year but I hope they will make something different like a gloss or lip pencil maybe?

I think the Mood Blank collection is just a ‘filler’ collection before they launch something bigger or more special because if you visit their website, the Ink the Velvet one only available in 3 new shades and for me, those 3 shades are very similar to the ones that exist in the older collection which is the new Ink the Velvet AD they launched early this year. I’m not that surprised to see the similarity between the shades though because I noticed that Peripera always did that with their new collection. Similar shades, similar packaging, and nothing new unless they release a totally different product.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Moonshot Micro Settingfit Cushion 201 Beige

Moonshot Micro Settingfit Cushion 201 Beige Review

Moonshot Micro Settingfit Cushion 201 Beige Review:

When I went to Seoul last 2017, I was not as hooked on K-beauty as I am right now. I wasn’t familiar with must-try products except for those offered by road shop brands available in the Philippines like Etude House, Tony Moly, etc. Needless to say, I was really fascinated to see women of different ages (from teens waiting in line for a ride in Everland, ladies on their commute to work, and even grandmothers on the train towards hiking destinations) applying cushion. This made me want to get my hands on this magical compact which seems to be the secret behind the coveted Korean porcelain skin.

The first ever cushion I bought was from Laneige but found it too heavy and dewy for my liking (not at all suitable for the hot and humid weather we have). I ended up just using that one a few times and giving away the refill it came with. This bad experience didn’t discourage me to avoid cushions all together though.

On the contrary, it actually made me want to try out more brands to look for my perfect match. It was last year when an online shopping site had their crazy sale on Moonshot products. All their cushions were sold for only $9.99 which I thought was such a bargain so I grabbed that opportunity to get myself one.

Reading the description of the different kinds of cushions available from the brand, I decided that this Micro Settingfit one is the most ideal for my oily skin since it claims to have a matte finish which my oily skin can benefit from. It didn’t have a refill (unlike their Balm type cushion) which was quite a bummer but I still decided to purchase this one.

By the way, Moonshot is a very new brand for me. The only information I know about it is that it has affiliations with the entertainment company YG. I’m not really a K-pop fan anymore but I believe Black Pink is their current endorser. Who wouldn’t want to achieve Lisa’s perfect skin right?

Anyway, I’ve been using this cushion for months now and I’d like to share my experience and opinions about it. If you’re curious to know if I’ve finally found my perfect cushion, please read until the end. For now, here are some details about the product:
