Illiyoon Ceramide Ato Concentrate Cream Review

Illiyoon Ceramide Ato Concentrate Cream Review:

Have you ever used a product for the first time and thought, “Yup, this is the one.”? As a beauty enthusiast, I always want to try new things so I don’t typically stick to using the same products over and over again (even if they worked well for my skin). And it doesn’t help that there is seemingly an infinite number of newer and better products to try out there.

But once in a while, you fall in love with a product so much that the fear of missing out on newer products suddenly disappears. That’s what I happened when I first used this Illiyoon Ceramide Ato Concentrate.

Why? I’ll tell you the reasons in a bit but for now let’s learn more about the brand and some details about the product.
I’ve been seeing products from Illiyoon every now and again but they didn’t really catch my attention enough to buy them. Perhaps that can be attributed to their boring packaging (there are just so many adorable or chic looking products out there!).

Anyway, it was when I saw Kelly Driscoll’s youtube videos where she discussed how much she loves this cream that I decided to try it out for myself. Fortunately, I saw a smaller size on sale in shopee. I got mine for only $2 for a 70ml tube which is such a steal!

According to what I’ve read, Illiyoon is a part of Amore Pacific which is one of the biggest beauty companies in Korea (also owns Mamonde, Laneige, Innisfree, etc). The brand aims to deliver gentle but deeply nourishing products perfect for those which sensitive skin types. In fact, their products can also be used for babies. Since I have a one year old baby, this is a plus point for me.

Isntree Green Tea Fresh Toner Review

Isntree Green Tea Fresh Toner Review:

These days, Isntree has been booming in the Asian Beauty community with their simple no-frills skincare products. They first garnered popularity with their famous Hyaluronic acid toner which I also thoroughly enjoyed, resulting in me falling in love with the brand.

Isntree’s Green Tea Fresh Toner on the other hand, appealed to me due to it being a light watery toner which I find more ideal for daytime use for combo or oily-skinned folks, especially those living in countries with high humidity all year long.

Etude House Play Color Eyes Bakehouse Review:

I’m sure you have heard about the famous Play Color Eyes from Etude House before. It’s a series of 10 shades-eyeshadow palettes with different themes for each palette such as Peach, Cafe (neutral brown), Wine (plums), and many more. In total they already released 6 regular edition and if I’m not mistaken, 3 Summer limited edition. This time, they are back with the latest edition to the collection, the Bake House palette.

The Bake House palette is basically a palette consists of neutral to warm brown shades. I think it’s the perfect palette if you love natural makeup look because out of the 10 shades, there are no bold or outstanding shades. All shades are safe for daily use so if you are looking for something fun or different, then you won’t like this palette.

Honestly I never tried any of the Play Color Eyes palette before because from my experience, Etude House’s eyeshadows are not the best in the pigment department (and I love pigmented eyeshadows!) but because of the color scheme, I can’t help but feel attracted to try it. All the reviews I read also saying that this particular palette is the best in the collection so it makes me more excited to try the palette.

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.

3CE Mood Recipe 2 Matte Lip Color 221 MellowFlower Review:

I was always intrigued by 3CE’s products for their simple packaging. It was totally up my alley. Then, when I was scrolling through Yesstyle I first saw this product. I loved the shade, but I was afraid to purchase since it’s a matte lipstick. I’m usually not a fan of matte lipsticks, so when I got it through the Yesstyle Advent Calendar, I was so happy to give it a try!

BANILA Co Covericious Power Fit Foundation 19 Cream Review:

I’ve been wanting to try this foundation for a really long time. If I’m not mistaken, this was released back in March or April this year but at that time I wasn’t aware of the foundation, not until I saw the reviews a month ago. I only saw some (I think it was less than 5) reviews about it in English and it’s surprising because BANILA Co is a pretty famous Korean beauty brand internationally, but there are tons of videos and blogs talking about it in Korean because it was so hyped and popular there.

BANILA CO is one of the ‘up-there’ road shop Korean brands, means they have more expensive price compared to other road shop brands like Etude, Skinfood, The Saem etc yet doesn’t belong to the luxurious brands either. In my country BANILA CO is pretty expensive so the only way I can afford the foundation is by buying it directly from Korea to get more affordable price.

BANILA CO advertised it as a ‘full coverage’ foundation with lightweight feeling and stay up to 36 hours of wearing with Hydrolyzed Collagen that will help with skin elasticity. After I read the claim I was so intrigued! As a woman who almost being 30, any product containing collagen is a must try so let’s see if the foundation will do wonders on my skin or not.

Innisfree My Styling Recipe Hair Fixing Water Spray Review

Innisfree My Styling Recipe Hair Fixing Water Spray Review:

I have not been using hair spray for quite some time, as the last hair spray I tried was not very effective. I had borrowed my mother’s hair spray just to try it out, but the spray made my hair strands stick together in a weird way. There were also white specks left on my hair which I had to pick out manually. It was difficult to spray consistently over the hair to make sure these white specks don’t appear.
It seemed like so much trouble, and so I stayed away from hair spray for the past few years.

I came across the new Water Spray from Innisfree recently, which is part of their expanding hair care / styling line. The product highlighted that its water-type formula will not harden the hair or leave white specks, which are basically my two concerns with using hair spray. I tried the tester in the store, and was quite happy with the result. My hair has become quite dry and frizzy after repeated dye jobs, and so I decided to give this spray a try.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] New 2019 3CE Cloud Lip Tint Peach Tease

3CE Cloud Lip Tint Peach Tease Review

3CE Cloud Lip Tint Peach Tease was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Cloud lip tint is the latest release from 3 Concept Eyes, not long after they released the Smoothing lip tint. 3CE is one of many brands who keeps releasing new products so it’s not unexpected to see they came with a brand new item regularly. I am a fan of 3CE so it’s always exciting to see the new releases and I’m very grateful to Nigama who once again trust me and offer me this lip tint to try!

They claim this lip tint has a satin finish with ‘fluffy cloud-like’ formula, thus the name but maybe because I’ve tried so many tints with similar description to this one, I assume it’s a lip tint with soft texture and velvet finish. I watched their advertisement on YouTube too and from what I’d seen, my assumption was spot on. If you saw the video, then you must’ve seen that the lip tint is indeed a velvet lip tint.

Since it’s a very new release, it’s a little bit hard to find online stores who sell it. I think in another month or two, other online stores will start to sell it and you will get easier access to get the lip tint to try. For now, if you find a store who sells it and want to buy it, make sure that the product is original because 3CE is known as a brand who got copied the most (and there are tons of shops sell fake 3CE product).

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.
