[REVIEW] Missha Glow Skin Balm

Missha Glow Skin Balm Review

Missha Glow Skin Balm was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Not too long ago, Missha has launched a new collection called ‘Glow Skin’ and the collection consists of a foundation, a skin balm, a lip & cheek tint, and a tension pact. If I’m not mistaken, the collection’s purpose is for dry skin because fall and winter is coming and that’s when our skin become drier and drier (but sadly I live in a tropical country so we have no season here).

I really want to try the foundation but a lot of reviews were saying that it was too oily if you have oily skin so I didn’t get it and purchased the lip & cheek tint instead. But suddenly Nigama offered me to try the Glow Skin Balm and I’m so thankful! Since its main purpose is for dry skin, I can’t wait to see what it will looks like on my oily skin.

I’m not sure either if it’s a skin primer or a moisturizer, but when I searched about it online, most of the online shops described it as a skin primer. Missha made it only in one type (where other brands usually make it in 3 variants according to skin’s problem) and I think this primer is meant only for making your skin look luminous and feel hydrated.

[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!

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] 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+++.

[REVIEW] Etude House Active Proof Liquid Fitting Base SPF50+ PA++++ Light Beige

Etude House Active Proof Liquid Fitting Base SPF50+ PA++++ Light Beige Review

Etude House Active Proof Liquid Fitting Base SPF50+ PA++++ Light Beige Review:

With the satisfying result of the Etude’s Active Proof Shield Wear Color Tint, it makes this foundation listed on my ‘next-to-try’ list. I’ve been trying to find it everywhere but the only way I can get it is by get it directly from Korea and it takes 4 to 6 weeks so I decide to wait until someone stock it and I’m so happy that finally my local seller has it on stock!

So Active Proof Liquid Fitting Base is a part of their latest summer collection, the Active Proof line. Consists of various products, this collection is perfect for summer season since it’s waterproof, lightweight, and stay all day. I don’t know exactly what this product is since Etude House didn’t explain if it’s a foundation, BB cream, or just a skin tint.

The ‘waterproof and stay all day part’ sounds too good to be true but the lip tint performs exactly as they said so I believed them and decide to try the foundation. If it’s truly stay all day, it’d be a good news for everyone with oily skin.

But unfortunately, they only make it in 2 different shades. There are definitely more than 2 skin tones in this world but as usual from a Korean brand, you can’t expect them to have wide range of shades selection. I got the lightest shade but somehow I found it’s not exactly my perfect shade so the shade range really disappoints me.

[REVIEW] Etude House Face Liquid Blur Cherry Blossom Edition

Etude House Face Liquid Blur Cherry Blossom Edition Review

Etude House Face Liquid Blur Cherry Blossom Edition Review:

The first time I tried the original face blur I wasn’t that impressed with it – but that was my first impression of it. Once I tried it again I actually really liked it and I was about to order it again when I saw that Etude House came out with this Cherry Blossom edition. Naturally being a fan of sakura (cherry blossom) designs, I couldn’t resist trying this version of the face blur.

What I didn’t realize was that this is actually different from the regular one, but I didn’t realize that until it had arrived. So, I wasn’t sure how I would like this formula compared to the regular one. I wanted this for the pretty design mostly but it’s a shame it’s not the same as the regular one. What if I really love the formulation of this one and it’s discontinued too soon? Hopefully that won’t be the case, but let’s see if the formula matches the pretty and lovely packaging.

[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] April Skin Magic Snow Cushion Pink SPF 50+ PA+++ 01 Pink

April Skin Magic Snow Cushion Pink SPF 50+ PA+++ 01 Pink Review

April Skin Magic Snow Cushion Pink SPF 50+ PA+++ 01 Pink Review:

The infamous magic snow cushion.. I’d say that it’s definitely one of the top 3 most widely known Korean cushion foundations. I’ve been wanting to try it for a while but as I was about to purchase it, I stumbled upon this one. It had a great discount and I loved the packaging so I decided to give this one a try first.

Firstly, I’d like to clarify that I know, since I have PIE, I’m probably the last person who could use a pink tinted cushion. However, I don’t have hyperpigmentation all over my face! The areas where most people (and I) like to tone are the areas where I don’t have hyperpigmentation (except for my cheeks, that’s where all the redness is). Even if I had completely clear skin, I still wouldn’t use it all over my face. The more layers of products you put on your skin, the cakier it’ll look.

[REVIEW] New 2018 VDL + PANTONE 18 Expert Color Primer For Eyes Serenity

VDL + PANTONE 18 Expert Color Primer For Eyes Serenity Review

VDL + PANTONE 18 Expert Color Primer For Eyes Serenity Review:

A while ago I asked around regarding the eye primers, people would recommend for an oily eyelid that’s sensitive to drying eye primers (which apparently are a lot of them). I got two results and since the other one was difficult to gain access to I ended up taking this one instead.

Now, I was going for their regular primers, BUT the Pantone editions have more product for a very good price (6.5g for 15 vs 13g for 22) so I took this one instead! VDL Expert Color Primer focuses on matte eyeshadows, my favorites which I always have a hard time wearing. And it has the advantage it looks like unicorn blood.
