[REVIEW+SWATCHES] 16Brand R U 16 Lipstick Taste Chu Edition Pink Nougat

16Brand R U 16 Lipstick Taste Chu Edition Pink Nougat Review

16Brand R U 16 Lipstick Taste Chu Edition Pink Nougat Review:

After I tried the 16 Cheek Shot blush from 16Brand, I got intrigued and wanted to try other products from them. Their blusher is so-so but they really good in making eye-catching packaging so it’s one of the main reason why I bought the 16 Chu Lipstick.

If I’m not mistaken, they have several 16 Chu Lipstick series, the regular series, the Fruity series, and the Taste Chu series. I’m not sure if they already have new series or not but so far the latest one is the Fruity series and I can’t find it in my country yet. The one I got is the Taste Chu edition.

Even though they only make it in 4 shades (and no neutral shades at all) I found the packaging interesting and cute. If you know about their 16 Magazine eyeshadow, this lipstick is made with same theme. They even make it as a set as well. 16Brand also promote the lipstick really well, I can see pictures and swatch videos of it every time I open Instagram.

I think it has quite high popularity in Korea because I always see Korean beauty bloggers hyping and writing good reviews of this product. The price is quite high as well but still affordable. The price range is similar to Innisfree so I think a lot of people still can buy it and try it themselves.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Holika Holika Jellime Highlighter 02 Feel So Champagne

Holika Holika Jellime Highlighter 02 Feel So Champagne Review

Holika Holika Jellime Highlighter 02 Feel So Champagne Review:

If you following beauty trend, then you must’ve heard about the famous jelly highlighter from Farsali, a very well-known beauty brand from America but it’s too expensive I won’t even buy it myself. Not long after, so many brands start to make their own version of the Jelly Highlighter but with a lot more affordable price. Because of curiosity, I decided to get the one from Holika Holika, a brand I already familiar with.

Holika Holika named their product Jellime Highlighter because it’s a highlighter in a slime texture. It’s bouncy and a little bit sticky and if you ever touch a slime, the texture is pretty much the same. I can say the texture is close to the ‘original’ one from Farsali but I don’t know about the quality since all the reviews I found are in Korean (and I don’t understand anything at all).

Jellime Highlighter is available in 3 shades and I think for a highlighter, the shades range is pretty good. There are pink, silver, and champagne colors and since highlighter shades are more universal, you can find any shade that will suit your skin tone. If I’m not mistaken, Holika Holika releasing this highlighter as a part of their ’Sparkly’ collection which consists of this highlighter along with sparkling liquid liners.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] 2019 NEW Peripera Ink Matte Blur Tint 03 Hitwave Orange

Peripera Ink Matte Blur Tint 03 Hitwave Orange Review

Peripera Ink Matte Blur Tint 03 Hitwave Orange Review:

Not long after releasing the new Ink Airy Velvet Tint and Ink Airy Velvet Stick, Peripera is back with another new lip tint. Following the trend, this time they come out with the ‘popular nowadays’ blur tint and called as the Ink Matte Blur Tint. This type of formula is pretty popular in Korea as you can see tons of brands releasing their own version of blur tints and some of the most popular are from Etude House blur tint and Bbia (the Etude one is not my favorite and I haven’t tried the one from Bbia yet).

So what is blur tint? It is basically an another term of smoothing tint. Usually a blur tint has a velvet and matte finish and it will feel soft on the lips. Blur tint is perfect if you have lot of lines on your lips or if you have very pigmented or dark lips. Peripera themselves describe this tint as a matte, lightweight tint with smooth application and good pigmentation so I’m guessing it’s not too different with other blur tints.

Peripera released this tint in 10 shades but honestly, the shade range is really similar to other lip collection from Peripera, there’s even a same shade (with a same name!) with the new Ink Airy Velvet Tint. I’m not sure if they make a whole new shades or just using similar shades but with different formula but if you are a loyal Peripera’s lip tint user like I am, then you will notice what I’m talking about.

[REVIEW] CLIO Big Aurora Glowing Cushion 02 Lingerie

CLIO Big Aurora Glowing Cushion 02 Lingerie Review

CLIO Big Aurora Glowing Cushion 02 Lingerie Review:

I’m not a cushion-person so I rarely use cushion foundation for my daily makeup because I find most of cushions don’t last on my oily-combination skin. I do have several cushions that I really love but it is very hard to find one that won’t make my skin looks like a mess.

I notice that usually cushion with skincare suit me the most then CLIO released their new cushion called Big Aurora Glowing Cushion and I can’t help but want to try it so bad since their claim is too good to pass on. CLIO describes it as a cushion that fills wrinkle and pores, makes voluminous skin, and contain Peptide Volume Essence in it. I’m not sure what is Peptide Volume Essence but as long as it has essence in it, then I need to try it.

For the shade range, it’s quite disappointing because they only has 3 shades to choose from. Usually CLIO has more than 3 shades so I’m not sure why they decided to only make this cushion in 3 shades only. There’s almost no deep and fair shade as the lightest shade is a tad darker than my skin tone and the deepest shade is not dark enough for deep skin tone.

[REVIEW] VT Cosmetics Cica Redness Cover Cushion #23 Natural Beige

VT Cosmetics Cica Redness Cover Cushion #23 Natural Beige Review

VT Cosmetics Cica Redness Cover Cushion #23 Natural Beige Review:

If you read my review about VT X BTS Black Collagen Pact, you probably know how much I love the product. Simply, since I’ve tried that foundation, I started to be a big fan of VT Cosmetics. I was attracted to try more, especially their base makeup. And one product that I kept eyeing was their Cica Redness Cover Cushion (seriously, I was like seeing my bias photo everytime I saw this product on my IG’s feeds, lol). And I finally got my cushion about a month ago, so I think I am good enough to write this review for you. They have 3 shades and I purchased the darkest one, number 23 (Natural Beige). The others are number 13 (Vanilla Beige) and 21 (Light Beige).

Ah, in case you haven’t known yet, VT Cosmetics launched Cica X Care line in the middle of 2018. This line consists of skincare and makeup products that have Tiger Grass (Centella Asiatica) as their main ingredients. You know, this ingredient got very popular recently as it is able to treat acne and sensitive skin very well.

Aside from the main ingredient that would be perfect for my sensitive and acne prone skin, there was also another thing that intrigued me to try this cushion. A thing that makes this cushion looks very unique. What’s that? Mmm, keep reading please!

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] 2019 NEW Etude House Better Lips-Talk Velvet BR405 Mauve On

Etude House Better Lips-Talk Velvet BR405 Mauve On Review

Etude House Better Lips-Talk Velvet BR405 Mauve On was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Better Lips-Talk is the latest lipstick from Etude House that was launched last month in Korea and it’s their first new lipstick in 2019. I’m excited to see finally Etude came out with a brand new lipstick because to be honest, I got tired with their ‘re-newed’ and ‘new shades’ of the famous Dear My Blooming Lips Talk.

This time they made the lipstick separated with 2 finishes, Velvet and the Regular one. The one I got is the Velvet one and from my experience with Etude’s lipstick, the matte and velvet finish works really great on my slightly dry lips and fingers crossed, I hope this time it will work as good.

They released it in 30 shades which I think is pretty amazing. The one I got is BR405 Mauve On, definitely one of the ‘calmer’ shades in the collection but they have perfect shades for almost all skin tones along with different undertones so I really appreciate on how Etude started to made products with various shades for their international customers.

[REVIEW] Peach C Cotton Blusher 02 Shy P Cheek

Peach C Cotton Blusher 02 Shy P Cheek Review:

When I was browsing Instagram, I saw a lot of posts about this brand. My Instagram feed is full of new and trending makeup products so I thought maybe this product is getting hyped in Korea lately. To be honest I never heard about this brand before, but after I did some research about it, it is actually a brand owned by a clothing line called Haneul Haneul. I’m not sure either if this shop is popular in Korea or not.

Haneul Haneul made a makeup line called Peach C and until now, they consist of some lip and face products. I love the concept because it’s fun and refreshing, but some may find that it’s too heavy on the budget as the price range starts from $10 to $32. The blusher is $12 though so I didn’t hesitate and purchased it immediately.

If you want to search information about the blusher, you can check their official website which is Haneul Haneul. On the website you can see full information at the very bottom of the product’s page. From what I see, Peach C has similarity with 3 Concept Eyes but with different concept.

Moonshot Multi Protection Tinted Moisture SPF30 PA ++ Review

Moonshot Multi Protection Tinted Moisture SPF30 PA ++ Review:

Moonshot is “the YG brand” so it’s no surprise we expect quality from it, a slightly higher price, and satisfaction too. Of course often the models are also from YG, and the one for this product is Lisa! She couldn’t be more appropriate as she (like many of us) has slight pigmentation marks in some spots, and yet she is so pretty. I got this product thinking it was just a makeup base, but it ended up being more than that.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] EGLIPS Velvet Fit Tint Cream Cheese 06 Fig Cheese

EGLIPS Velvet Fit Tint Cream Cheese 06 Fig Cheese Review

EGLIPS Velvet Fit Tint Cream Cheese 06 Fig Cheese Review:

Eglips is one of the most well-known Korean (indie) brands internationally. I always see everyone hyping their lip and eye products, even there are tons of Korean and non-Korean beauty bloggers who review and show color swatch of their products. I want to try their lipstick but since the price is a bit high in my country, I never bought it.

Until I saw they came out with a new Velvet Tint for their new series, the Cream Cheese series. Just from the name itself it already caught my attention but sadly, it’s hard to find the claim, description, and other information in English for this tint. If you understand Korean, you can check their official website.

Not only the name, the shade range is also interest me. There are 5 shades and 3 of them are bright colors while the other 2 are more neutral. On the picture it shows that this tint looks so pretty for making a gradient lips so I choose shade 06 which I think look the prettiest among those 5 shades. But if you see closely, shade 06 and 07 looks so similar so I suggest you to search reviews on YouTube to see the difference between those 2.
