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] MOETA Pop Devil Color Treatment Ampoule Olive Khaki

MOETA Pop Devil Color Treatment Ampoule Olive Khaki Review

MOETA Pop Devil Color Treatment Ampoule Olive Khaki Review:

The thought of dyeing my hair temporarily came when I planned to go on a short vacation. Actually there was still a trace of brownish from my last dye. Some parts of my hair was still dry and had split ends also, due to the last dye I did to my hair. So this time, I preferred to try a temporary hair colorant that wouldn’t cause more breakage and this notation came to my mind : why not trying a color treatment ampoule? Moreover, I could choose an uncommon color since it will rinsed off after 1 – 2 weeks.

It took me some weeks to contemplate between some brands, from Etude House to April Skin. However, I chose MOETA Pop Devil Color Treatment Ampoule at the end. It has more color options and much more economic too; it costs less than $8 for 30 mL and around $14 for 60 mL.

[REVIEW] Innisfree Seaweed Soothing Mask Sheet Moist Soothing Sargassaceae

Innisfree Seaweed Soothing Mask Sheet Moist Soothing Sargassaceae Review

Innisfree Seaweed Soothing Mask Sheet Moist Soothing Sargassaceae Review:

Lately I have been using a lot of masks made out of seaweed, since it’s a fashion currently in Korea. I must say beforehand this mask has nothing to do with the Mamonde Seaweed Dustcut mask! I mean, maybe a little, after all it’s seaweed, but there are other masks this is more similar to. Seaweed should be good for the summer, and Jeju is the place in Korea with the most (and the best) natural resources – so Innisfree being a Jeju brand it’s no use they used Jeju seaweed. Although you may be surprised with the other ingredients in the mask, and their origins.

[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+SWATCHES] Innisfree Vivid Slimfit Tint 01 Ice Peach Tea

Innisfree Vivid Slimfit Tint 01 Ice Peach Tea Review

Innisfree Vivid Slimfit Tint 01 Ice Peach Tea Review: (Product purchased by Cosmeperks)

Innisfree recently just launched another lip product called the Vivid Slim Fit Tint. It’s a lip tint with a vivid pigmentation and the product size is pretty slim and tall, exactly true to its name. They have 7 shades for the first launch and judging from the swatch picture, it’s a pretty matte lip tint.

They launched another collection called the Jeju Color Picker with 3 new shades and I ordered it already from my local seller, but they sent me the wrong product and turned out they got the wrong items too from the supplier but Nigama was so nice to let me try this product instead of the Jeju Color Picker one!

Among the 7 shades, most of them are in pinks and reds, as usual for a Korean lip product but I’m sure everyone can find their favorite shade since most of the colors, even though they lean towards warm tone, are pretty universal and can be worn by every skin tone, from fair to deep skin tones.

[REVIEW] Missha Airy Fit Mask Sheet Rice

Missha Airy Fit Mask Sheet Rice Review

Missha Airy Fit Mask Sheet Rice Review:

Frankly speaking, I always find it tricky to do product review toward sheet masks. I personally think that one shouldn’t make opinion or verdict only by just once usage. You know, sheet masks always claim something ‘woah’ like ‘nourishes skin’, ‘make skin bright and glossy’, or even ‘improve skin texture’, but I’ve never wished a pipe dream like those after waking up in the morning (I always use the sheet mask before a night-sleep). And I hope you think the same, because I’m afraid the first thing you’ll find in the morning is disappointment.

However, that doesn’t mean I’m an anti. To put it better, I’m actually a big fan of sheet masks. Sheet masks are very beneficial for the skin, that’s why I frequently use a sheet mask each week. I just want you to lower your expectations and be realistic, since those admiring effect couldn’t be seen by using only one or two masks.

Since I frequently use a sheet mask, I’ve rambled around many brands and types of sheet masks so I hope my review would be objective and helpful. I don’t usually review a sheet mask, unless it leaves a lingering feeling or some impression to me, just like what MISSHA Airy Fit Sheet Mask – Rice does.

Bonajour Extreme Spot Serum Review

Bonajour Extreme Spot Serum Review:

When I first got this serum and started using it I thought it was just a good serum to plump sensitive skin. But then I moved houses and in two days of stress and dust my skin went back 10 years and I got infected stress pimples that, believe me, really hurt. For those two days all I could think is when would I get to unpack this serum – it was my last hope. I find that Bonajour products are simple, healthy and yet effective. So of course I bet my whole skin recovery on this.

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] Holika Holika Honey Sleeping Pack Canola

Holika Holika Honey Sleeping Pack Canola Review

Holika Holika Honey Sleeping Pack Canola Review:

For some unbeknownst to me reasons, last summer my skin decided to change its type. It went from fairly normal, maybe even a little on the oilier side, to the Sahara desert in a span of just a few weeks. To say that I panicked would be a huge understatement here. I suddenly needed to change my whole skincare routine!

I spent hundreds of dollars on western beauty products, however nothing worked. Quite the opposite, actually. My skin became even worse! I was desperate to find a solution and that‘s, my dears, is the story of how I got into Korean makeup and skincare. One of the first brands I got myself familiar with was Holika Holika. It‘s on the affordable side of the scale and was a great point to start from.

The Honey Canola Sleeping Pack was actually the first skincare product I bought from this brand. It wasn’t expensive compared to other products of the same category (I‘m pretty sure it was somewhere around 12USD), had great claims and was supposed to work like magic overnight. Considering my skin‘s condition at the time… I had nothing to lose.
