[REVIEW+SWATCHES] A’Pieu Juicy Pang Mousse Tint BE01 Fig

A'Pieu Juicy Pang Mousse Tint BE01 Fig Review

A’Pieu Juicy Pang Mousse Tint BE01 Fig Review:

After having a great success with the Juicy Pang Tint, A’Pieu is back with another product in the collection, the Juicy Pang Mousse Tint. I’m a huge fan of the Juicy Pang Tint so I’m really excited when I saw advertisements for the Mousse Tint online. Basically it’s a velvet version of the older release so I’m guessing it would be more long lasting and doesn’t feel slippery on the lips.

If you never tried the original Juicy Pang Tint then you really need to try it! I think it’s one of the best lip tints I’ve ever tried and in Korea it’s also really popular and hyped by beauty influencers. Maybe because it’s unexpectedly popular (and not everyone loves the oily finish) A’Pieu decided to make it in a mousse version. Even though I love the original version, to be honest I’m not a biggest fan of glossy lips so when I saw they already have it on sale, I asked my friend who stay in Korea to get it for me immediately.

Recently A’Pieu got so popular internationally and now you can find their products easily on every online store that sell Korean makeup. Along with the affordable price (and good quality), I think it’s definitely one of the reasons why this lip tint was almost sold out when they first launched it.

[REVIEW] A’Pieu Madecassoside Ampoule

A'pieu Madecassoside Ampoule Review

A’Pieu Madecassoside Ampoule Review:

It starts with the name. It’s as simple as it is. We like cool and creative names but, let’s face it, it’s more practical to call a product by what it is! For example, you wouldn’t say “Benton Goodbye Redness Centella Mask Pack” all the time, you would just say “Benton Centella Mask” or something.

With this name there is no going wrong. I also like the design, which matches the collection completely. And the simple promise of skin protection. But does the A’Pieu Madecassoside Ampoule perform as well as it sells?

[REVIEW] Minon Amino Moist Clear Wash Powder

Minon Amino Moist Clear Wash Powder Review

Minon Amino Moist Clear Wash Powder Review:

Developed by the pharmaceutical company, Daiichi Sankyo Healthcare, the Minon Amino Moist product line is a skincare brand targeted towards those with dry and/or sensitive skin. To be completely honest, this brand wasn’t on my radar at all until I was searching for powder cleansers to travel with and found it for cheap on a local reselling platform.

Looking up the product and thus brand guide, it was intriguing to find out that the brand focuses on developing skincare focused on amino acids to aid in improving the skin’s moisture barrier overtime. However, I must say that the little @cosme sticker on this product’s image thumbnails while googling definitely helped in sealing the quick purchase (though, I’m still not so sure in which year it got into the highly esteemed rankings).

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] Clio Nudism Moist Fit Powder Pact 02 Lingerie

Clio Nudism Moist Fit Powder Pact 02 Lingerie Review

Clio Nudism Moist Fit Powder Pact 02 Lingerie Review:

As a girl with a very oily T-zone, to set that area with a powder is a must. My cheeks area has dry patches so mainly I use powder only on the T-zone, chin, a little bit on the outer part of my cheek (just to set the foundation so blush, bronzer, and highlighter can be applied more smoothly), and under eyes area to set my concealer.

I had tried so many powders, from compact powder to loose powder but so far I found that my skin hates loose powder. It’s too drying and emphasis my textures while for compact powder, they are too cakey and I found only one powder that looks good on my skin but unfortunately it’s too expensive and I can’t keep purchasing it.

When I was searching for a good Korean powder (since it’s more affordable and easy to get), I saw Clio has a ‘Moist Powder’ as part of their Nudism collection. I knew Nudism cushion is really popular but I never saw anyone talking about this powder but based on their website, the powder seems to have a moist effect and won’t make skin looks dry. They claim this powder will suit every skin type, even dry skin because it contains essence that gives moisture while it mattifies the skin at the same time. I was really excited to find a powder with a skincare benefit!

They only have 3 shades and from the picture, I’m pretty sure the shades are good for fair to light-medium skin tones. Not rare for a Korean brand but usually Clio has wider shade range so it’s a bit unexpected for them to have 3 shades only.

[REVIEW] Mamonde Creamy Tint Color Balm Light & Intense

Mamonde Creamy Tint Color Balm Light & Intense Review

Mamonde Creamy Tint Color Balm Light & Intense Review:

I’ve been loving the renewed version of the Mamonde tint color balms, both light (glossy finish) and intense (velvet matte finish). These balms have been really popular in South Korea and other parts of Asia due to its affordability and high quality. It also contains more product than an average lipstick which is definitely worth the money.

The shade range is spectacular, there are various shades of n*des, pinks, corals and reds (including brick reds and burgundy). The new version promises high adherence without drying out lips, convenience and true to color. They come in a twist up tube for easy application without a hassle. Korean actress Park Shin Hye has also endorsed in Mamonde’s lip products, which caused a hype for these amazing lip crayons. She had used it in several Korean dramas and it looked wonderful on her!

[REVIEW] New 2018 Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum | Essence in Lotion | Skin | Cream | Cleanser | Sleeping Mask

New 2018 Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum + Essence in Lotion + Skin + Cream + Cleanser + Sleeping Mask Review

New 2018 Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum Special Set was purchased by Cosmeperks.

I met this amazing serum for the first time in 2013. I really LOVE how it worked on my skin since the first time I tried it. I think I already spent 1, 2, 3… ah, I lost my count how many bottles I’ve bought. Right, it’s Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum (the first Korean green tea skincare I’ve tried)!

This green tea serum is the world’s best seller product from Innisfree, even it’s awarded globally as best moist serum for 19 times! (well, I do know why it is). The good news, Innisfree just upgraded the formula of this lovely serum! As far as I know, they already upgraded it 3 times. In 2014, 2016 and now, the newest upgraded version in 2018!

Actually, Innisfree not only upgraded their Green Tea Seed line but also added a new product, Innisfree Green Tea Seed Essence-in-Lotion. And I extremely wanted to try everything in this line. Thankfully, they had a special set to introduce their newest formula for us. Here is New Green Tea Seed Serum Special Set which comes in a thick green box, consists of 6 products (the full size of Green Tea Seed Serum and the minis of Green Tea Seed Skin, Essence-in-Lotion, Cream, Morning Cleanser, and Sleeping Mask). Okay, get your coffee or snacks and please sit tight, it’s gonna be a long post, but I guess you are as excited as I am to try this NEW Green Tea Seed line, aren’t you?

[REVIEW] Isehan Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara Advance Film Black

Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara Advance Film Black Review

Isehan Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara Advance Film Black Review:

I believe the notion of equating big well-defined eyes to beauty is the same worldwide. And there are so many brands and types of eye makeup products in the market. I personally am a subscriber to mascara. Having “studied” them long enough, I sum up that they all essentially promise any or all of the three features – long, curl and volume.

Waterproof, smudgeproof or coloured mascaras are added functions. So how to differentiate one brand from another? Even within each brand, there are so many variations. Ughh…life is so complicated *lol* I have had tried many different brands of mascara over many years, but have not found one that retained my loyalty. When I chanced upon this Kiss Me mascara, it looks promising. So will this be the one?

[REVIEW] SK-II R.N.A Power Radical New Age Cream

SK-II R.N.A Power Radical New Age Cream Review

SK-II R.N.A Power Radical New Age Cream Review:

As I have entered my thirties, I find that light moisturizers are no longer enough for me during the night. I live in a humid climate so I tend to shy away from heavier moisturizers. Some of the ones I tried felt too thick and suffocating, does not absorb properly into my skin making it feeling sticky, and some even clogged my pores.

So when I got the SK-II R.N.A Power Radical New Age Cream as a part of the SK-II Pitera™ Welcome Set, I was a bit hesitant to try it. Especially when it is an anti-aging cream, it obviously will be quite heavy. But the cream has received so many glowing reviews, of course I was curious to try it for myself and see how it fares.
