Naruko AMPM Total Brightening Renewal Treatment Mandelic Acid 5% Review

Naruko AMPM Total Brightening Renewal Treatment Mandelic Acid 5% Review:

Ah, I remember I was still a newbie in skincare when I first purchased this product. After ditching those pesky physical scrubs, strengthening my basic routine and used (and also got bored of) konjac sponge, I decided to jump into the world of chemical exfoliations.

Of course, before jumping in, I read a lot of stuff. I wanted to try AHA first to get rid of my acne scars and to brighten my complexion and all the other stuff AHA is supposed to do. After reading and researching a lot about AHA, I decided to try mandelic acid as it is considered suitable for a newbie like me. And after further research, I found this product, AMPM Total Brightening Renewal Treatment Mandelic Acid 5% and it is easy to get at the nearby drugstore in my area. I kinda don’t want to wait which is why I decided not to buy it online, haha.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] 2018 Etude House Double Lasting SERUM Foundation SPF25/PA++ N02 Pure

Etude House Double Lasting Serum Foundation SPF25PA N02 Pure Review

Etude House Double Lasting Serum Foundation was purchased by Cosmeperks.

About 2 years ago, Etude House released a foundation called Double Lasting Foundation which became really popular both in Korea and overseas. Etude must have noticed how popular their foundation was and finally change the entire shade range and adding several new shades in the collection for their international customers. I bought it as well and I have to say that it maybe the best foundation Etude House has ever made so I’m pretty excited to see finally they came with a new version!

From Etude House global website, I can see that the Double Lasting Serum Foundation has similar shade range to the original one. Both have 12 shades in 3 different undertones. I really appreciate how Etude House starts to make more shades so most of their customers can try and enjoy their product too.

The hype for the new Double Lasting Serum Foundation is really huge but it’s hard for me to find because there’s no seller has it on stock and Nigama so nice for letting me to join a pre-order for this foundation. I thought it’ll take 7 to 10 days but I only have to wait for 4 days! Kudos for that seller for sending the package really fast.

[REVIEW] Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Emulsion

Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Emulsion Review

Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Emulsion Review:

Ceramides are something that always interest me, so I tend to be interested in products that mention or contain ceramides. I had never tried anything from Holika Holika either, but when I saw that they had this ceramide emulsion I became curious and had many questions. In the past I totally ignored emulsions because I never found one that worked well for me, that was until I tried the Dermatory Hypoallergenic Emollient. After having such a great experience with that emulsion, I was curious to see if another ceramide emulsion would work as well for me as the Dermatory one had.

Holika Holika had another version of this ceramide emulsion in the past, and then they reformulated it. But the previous version seemed to have great reviews and I noticed that this emulsion had three types of ceramides which made me instantly want to try it. I’ve been using this emulsion since May, and the other day I noticed that I had almost finished it, so it felt like the right time to do a review of it.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] The Saem Saemmul Yum Yum Lip Syrup Peach

The Saem Saemmul Yum Yum Lip Syrup Peach Review

The Saem Saemmul Yum Yum Lip Syrup Peach Review:

The cute packaging was the only reason I immediately bought it without thinking twice. The tube looks very cute (even it’s not like a lip product but tomato sauce or my Mom’s syrup essence, haha). For your information, this lip product was launched by The Saem about two months ago. Please, say ‘hi’ to Saemmul Yum Yum Lip Syrup!

Honestly, if they didn’t make this extremely cute packaging, I wouldn’t buy this product, hehe because this Yum Yum Lip Syrup has only 4 color options; Chocolate, Cherry, Strawberry and Peach. The shades are very basic (you know, red, pink and orange) and kinda boring for me.

I was interested to try the Chocolate lip syrup but ended up with the Peach one (since the tube looks prettier with its pastel color, lol). I know, I was like buying the cute package only, but from the deepest of my heart (ha!) I actually wanted to get a good quality tint as well. Ah, okay let’s see!

[REVIEW] My Scheming L-ascorbic Acid Brightening Mask

My Scheming L-ascorbic Acid Brightening Mask Review

My Scheming L-ascorbic Acid Brightening Mask Review:

MY SCHEMING should be a familiar name for any mask sheet fans, although it’s originated from Taiwan not South Korea. However, don’t underestimate Taiwan sheet masks since they have their own superiorities compared to Korean sheet masks. I personally haven’t tried a lot of Taiwan sheet masks brand, especially because they aren’t very popular in my country so that finding a local seller is very very difficult. Nevertheless, I frequently heard that MY SCHEMING is one of the popular brands beside My Beauty Diary, Dr. Morita, LOVEMORE, etc.

I finally had the opportunity to buy MY SCHEMING sheet masks during my holiday trip to Taiwan two weeks ago. And, my goodness, Taiwanese is just like Korean when it’s related to sheet masks; there are so many brands with various ranges and variants plus different discounts and promotions too! Fortunately I found a store that sells MY SCHEMING masks, allows me to buy three different variants which one of them is MY SCHEMING L-Ascorbic Acid Brightening Mask.

[REVIEW] Lilybyred Luv Beam Cheek Blush 3 Indie Pink

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?

Missha Ice Drop Tint My Some Coral Review

Missha Ice Drop Tint My Some Coral Review:

Summer’s almost over but Missha still place their latest release, the Ice Drop Tint on their official website main page. I don’t need another lip tint but with the cute design, promising claims, and colorful shades selection, I can’t resist and finally purchased one of the 5 shades.

Ice Drop Tint is described as a tint with smooth texture and hydrating yet long lasting at the same time. If it’s true to its claim, then I’ll be so happy since it’s a bit hard to find a hydrating and long lasting tint since most of the hydrating one tends to wear off faster than the matte one.

If you love colorful, summer-y vibe lip color, I’m sure you will like this tint’s shade range. They only has 5 but all of those are so bold and bright, the type of colors you would want to wear on summer. It may be too bright for some people but among those 5 shades, there are two shades that I think is still wearable for daily uses (even if it’s not summer).

Huxley Secret of Sahara Brightly Ever After Essence Review

Huxley Secret of Sahara Brightly Ever After Essence Review:

Huxley is a pretty niche brand that is actually picking up some steam in South Korea as well as in the rest of the world. It features prickly pear seed oil from the Sahara Desert in all of its products to promote a healthy and glowing complexion.

I was recommended the Brightly Ever After Essence for brightening and hydrating effects by a close friend, and decided to give it a go.

So, does it live up to its hype?

[REVIEW] Etude House Big Cover Skin Fit Concealer Pro P03 Light Vanilla

Etude House Big Cover Skin Fit Concealer Pro P03 Light Vanilla Review

Etude House Big Cover Skin Fit Concealer Pro P03 Light Vanilla Review:

This year Etude House finally came out with a brand new concealer called Big Cover Skin Fit Concealer Pro. This concealer is actually an extended line from Etude earlier collection, the Big Cover line. To be honest the concealers on the Big Cover line aren’t impressive for me because the shade selections are so poor so I was excited to see Etude finally make this new concealer in 9 shades!

In those 9 shades, there are 2 corrector shades (Peach for dark circles and Mint for redness) and 7 skin shades range from fair to tan. There’s no dark shade deep enough for people with deep skin tone but I think it’s a good progress that they start making deeper shades. I’m hoping for the next release, Etude will come out with more shades for everyone.

I think this concealer is hyped in Korea because I saw so many Korean beauty Youtubers were reviewing it and most of them said they had a good experience with this concealer. It makes me really want to try it and finally after waiting for almost a month to get the concealer arrive on my place, finally it’s here and I can’t wait to try it!
