[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Stimmung Velvet Lip Tint QV CR001

Stimmung Velvet Lip Tint QV CR001 Review

Stimmung Velvet Lip Tint QV CR001 was purchased by Cosmeperks.

If you have never heard about Stimmung before, you are not alone. I’m a huge fan of K-beauty but this is my first time hearing that there’s a K-beauty brand called Stimmung. I checked their website to find more information about them but it’s full of Korean word I can’t understand, so I tried searching on YouTube to see reviews about their products. Once again, I have no answer because almost all the reviews are either in Korean or Vietnamese.

Based on what I found, seems like Stimmung is an affordable beauty brands in Korea and while I’m not sure if they have a retail store, they have a website where you can purchase it directly. I don’t know if you can get from their website if you live outside Korea though but I was so lucky to be offered by Nigama to try it!

They have various products start from lips, eyes, cheeks, and even base makeup. The unique thing about them is how they package their product. All of the products are packaged in a pouch style packaging (like a jelly drink you can find on a convenience store) which is pretty new for a K-beauty brand.

[REVIEW] MIZON Collagen Firming Eye Cream

MIZON Collagen Firming Eye Cream Review

MIZON Collagen Firming Eye Cream Review:

While Korean skincare brands tend to innovate every now and then about their lines and star ingredients, I have to express my dissatisfaction toward their concern to their eye cream products. The varies are barely developed, or at least launched at the market. I always find this problem of buying a new eye cream (as well as sunscreen products) once the previous one ran out : rambling around veteran skincare brands like Mizon, Secret Key, Etude House, and so on, since the latest and current brands don’t exactly pay more attention to launch eye creams.This time, I chose Mizon since I’d tried Secret Key before, and maybe Etude House would take turn next!

The Saem Mousse Candy Tint 6 Chai Tea Review

The Saem Mousse Candy Tint 6 Chai Tea Review:

Raise your hand if you’re a sucker for cute packaging! If you just did, then Korean lip tints are probably your biggest weakness (like me!). One of the cutest in my collection is definitely this The Saem Mousse Candy Tint (Disney edition). The original packaging is already cute but this one with Minnie Mouse on front is just extra adorable. Of course, cute packaging is nice and all but what we’re actually after is great quality right? Luckily, in this case, you can have both.

I first encountered this lip tint while browsing through Shopee but felt wary because there seems to be a lot of shops that sell fake versions of this. Nonetheless, my desire to try out this cutie didn’t stop me from buying it. I found a shop that sells an authentic one for a reasonable price (in my case it was around $5).

There are 10 shades to choose from: 01 Redmango, 02 Strawberry, 03 Carrot, 04 Grapefruit, 05 Yogurtberry, 06 Chai Tea, 07 Dark Cherry, 08 Apricot, 09 Peanut, and 10 Strawberry Cheese. The names of the shades are actually good descriptions of the colors they represent. I chose 06 Chai Tea, which is a darker rose shade, because it’s a color that I still didn’t have in my collection.

Missha Cover Maestro Tip Concealer 17 Pianissimo Review

Missha Cover Maestro Tip Concealer 17 Pianissimo Review:

I guess I was so late in discovering this concealer because when I was browsing to find a good Korean concealer to replace my beloved A’Pieu moist creamy concealer, this showed up with the most good reviews. Everyone was talking and did review on it and I wonder how I didn’t hear anything about it before. Even Morgan from TheBeautyBreakdown, my favorite Youtuber, said that this concealer is pretty good and didn’t crease on her. I was sold once I saw her review about it.

The price is very affordable for a product from Missha and I’m happy to see that they have more than 2 shades available. I always had a hard time in finding the perfect concealer shade for me since I need a lighter shade than my skin tone because I used concealer to highlight my under eyes area. That’s why I’m excited to see they have a shade light enough!

If I’m not mistaken, they also have the pot/cream version of this concealer but in my experience, cream concealer never worked on me so I picked the liquid version. Just for information, a cream concealer usually has more coverage than a liquid one so if you like this concealer but need a better coverage, maybe you can try the pot version.

Etude House Colorful Tattoo Tint PK002 Naughty Hipster Review

Etude House Colorful Tattoo Tint PK002 Naughty Hipster Review:

Not too long after the release of Colorful Vivid Tint, Etude has finally launched another lip tint, the Colorful Tattoo Tint. I’m not sure about the difference between those two but judging by the name, I think the Tattoo one would last longer on the lips. I like how the Colorful Vivid Tint performed on my lips but sadly, it’s not long lasting so I really hope this one will stay longer (and better) on me.

The price is quite affordable, as expected from Etude House. It won’t be a burden for your wallet and the price is a bit cheaper than the Colorful Vivid Tint but both have 10 shades. The difference is the Colorful Tattoo has more variant in colors while the Colorful Vivid only has pinks, corals, and reds. I’m happy with the shade range and like usual, I got the most neutral shade from the range.

[REVIEW] FROM NATURE Bio System Cleansing Water

From Nature Bio System Cleansing Water Review

From Nature Bio System Cleansing Water Review:

FROM NATURE is a Korean skincare brands that manufacture products with life force of nature using natural plant ingredients. They emphasize to provide nutrition and moisture to skin and healthy beauty found in nature as well as nutrition, energy, and vitality of nature. It is manufactured under Daehwa C&F Co., Ltd that’s specialized in cosmetic distribution

To my ears, FROM NATURE is not that familiar. I’ve never come through this brand before until one day, I saw an online shop sold various products from FROM NATURE that consisted of cleansing water, cleansing oil, first essence, cream, eye cream, and so on. After rambling around Google, I found that the From Nature first essence was quite popular and the effect was almost as good as the popular Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence. The first essence caught my attention at first, but realizing that what I needed at that time was a cleansing product, I decided to click the ‘buy’ button on FROM NATURE Bio System Cleansing Water page.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Holika Holika Nudrop Dewy Stick 01 Bare Coral

Holika Holika Nudrop Dewy Stick 01 Bare Coral Review

Holika Holika Nudrop Dewy Stick 01 Bare Coral Review:

The NuDrop Dewy Stick is one of the new products belong to the NuDrop Collection from Holika Holika. Based on what they describe, it’s a moisturizing lipstick that will give you comfort and supple effect. I rarely use a moisturizing lipstick since it fades too fast for my liking but because their claims are too good to be true, I decided to try it to see if the claims are true or not. I have tried the Nudrop cream blusher form the same collection and to be honest I’m not too fond of that product. It fades too fast so I’m hoping the lipstick will last longer on me.

Holika Holika made the lipstick in only 4 shades but all of the shades are in natural color with warm undertones. I’m a big fan of natural lip color thus i had a hard time in choosing only one shade. If you are a fan of bold or dark lip color, then this collection may not be for you. Actually 4 shades is not enough but since the purpose is for ‘no makeup’ makeup look, I think it’s understandable (though I’d be happy if they include more shades).

[REVIEW] Innisfree My Real Squeeze Mask Coconut

Innisfree My Real Squeeze Mask Coconut Review

Innisfree My Real Squeeze Mask Coconut Review:

I don’t think I need to introduce Innisfree, because I think they are a well-known brand that everyone has at least heard of, right? I actually haven’t used too many of their products, but when I’m visiting Seoul, I still like to look around their stores. Their packaging and products look incredibly beautiful, and I’m always tempted to buy and try many things. Anyway, at the end of the year I visited an Innisfree store, wanting to buy sheet masks!

I was especially looking for masks that are different from the varieties I could get from Etude House. Etude House sheet masks are my favorite, if I’m honest. But they don’t have all the varieties and flavors, so as soon as I saw these coconut masks at Innisfree, I had to buy it. After all, I’m a huge fan of coconut – the scent, as a food/drink, etc.

I’ll admit it was a purchase I made without knowing a thing about the ingredients, or anything like that. I did read it was good for dry skin, so I bought two of them to try. Coconut for me is also really nostalgic and makes me think of my childhood, so I really can’t help but fall for coconut related things! I was really hoping this would have a delicious coconut scent/smell, and that I would instantly love it… read on to see what I thought about it.

Missha Wish Stone Tint Velvet BR01 Pretty Brown Pink Review

Missha Wish Stone Tint Velvet BR01 Pretty Brown Pink Review:

I’m a fan of Missha’s skincare. It is the brand which introduced us to cult favorites like the Time Revolution the First Treatment Essence and the All Around Safe Block sunscreens. However, I don’t have a lot of experience when it comes to their makeup products. In fact, this lip tint is the only makeup product I have from the brand.

I have been using lip tints for years now and based on my experience, the best ones definitely come from South Korea (which isn’t really hard to believe since they’re the one who started this trend). Anyway, I first saw this Missha Wish Stone Tint Velvet on an online website and well…it was love at first sight! One look on its super adorable packaging and I knew I just had to have it (yes, I’m totally one of those people who buy things based on packaging without knowing much about the product).

There are five shades to choose from which includes a red (RD01), an orange (OR01), a brownish-pink (BR01), and two coral shades (CR01 and CR02). Since I already have a lot of reds and oranges in my collection, I decided to get the brownish-pink shade. It was priced at 260php (~$5) when I bought it which is a great bargain for such a pretty looking lip tint in my opinion.
