[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+SWATCHES] Missha Wish Stone Tint Velvet BR01 Pretty Brown Pink

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.

[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+SWATCHES] 16Brand R U 16 Lipstick Taste Chu Edition Pink Nougat

16Brand R U 16 Lipstick Taste Chu Edition Pink Nougat Review

16Brand R U 16 Lipstick Taste Chu Edition Pink Nougat Review:

After I tried the 16 Cheek Shot blush from 16Brand, I got intrigued and wanted to try other products from them. Their blusher is so-so but they really good in making eye-catching packaging so it’s one of the main reason why I bought the 16 Chu Lipstick.

If I’m not mistaken, they have several 16 Chu Lipstick series, the regular series, the Fruity series, and the Taste Chu series. I’m not sure if they already have new series or not but so far the latest one is the Fruity series and I can’t find it in my country yet. The one I got is the Taste Chu edition.

Even though they only make it in 4 shades (and no neutral shades at all) I found the packaging interesting and cute. If you know about their 16 Magazine eyeshadow, this lipstick is made with same theme. They even make it as a set as well. 16Brand also promote the lipstick really well, I can see pictures and swatch videos of it every time I open Instagram.

I think it has quite high popularity in Korea because I always see Korean beauty bloggers hyping and writing good reviews of this product. The price is quite high as well but still affordable. The price range is similar to Innisfree so I think a lot of people still can buy it and try it themselves.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] 2019 NEW Peripera Ink Matte Blur Tint 03 Hitwave Orange

Peripera Ink Matte Blur Tint 03 Hitwave Orange Review

Peripera Ink Matte Blur Tint 03 Hitwave Orange Review:

Not long after releasing the new Ink Airy Velvet Tint and Ink Airy Velvet Stick, Peripera is back with another new lip tint. Following the trend, this time they come out with the ‘popular nowadays’ blur tint and called as the Ink Matte Blur Tint. This type of formula is pretty popular in Korea as you can see tons of brands releasing their own version of blur tints and some of the most popular are from Etude House blur tint and Bbia (the Etude one is not my favorite and I haven’t tried the one from Bbia yet).

So what is blur tint? It is basically an another term of smoothing tint. Usually a blur tint has a velvet and matte finish and it will feel soft on the lips. Blur tint is perfect if you have lot of lines on your lips or if you have very pigmented or dark lips. Peripera themselves describe this tint as a matte, lightweight tint with smooth application and good pigmentation so I’m guessing it’s not too different with other blur tints.

Peripera released this tint in 10 shades but honestly, the shade range is really similar to other lip collection from Peripera, there’s even a same shade (with a same name!) with the new Ink Airy Velvet Tint. I’m not sure if they make a whole new shades or just using similar shades but with different formula but if you are a loyal Peripera’s lip tint user like I am, then you will notice what I’m talking about.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] 2019 NEW Etude House Better Lips-Talk Velvet BR405 Mauve On

Etude House Better Lips-Talk Velvet BR405 Mauve On Review

Etude House Better Lips-Talk Velvet BR405 Mauve On was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Better Lips-Talk is the latest lipstick from Etude House that was launched last month in Korea and it’s their first new lipstick in 2019. I’m excited to see finally Etude came out with a brand new lipstick because to be honest, I got tired with their ‘re-newed’ and ‘new shades’ of the famous Dear My Blooming Lips Talk.

This time they made the lipstick separated with 2 finishes, Velvet and the Regular one. The one I got is the Velvet one and from my experience with Etude’s lipstick, the matte and velvet finish works really great on my slightly dry lips and fingers crossed, I hope this time it will work as good.

They released it in 30 shades which I think is pretty amazing. The one I got is BR405 Mauve On, definitely one of the ‘calmer’ shades in the collection but they have perfect shades for almost all skin tones along with different undertones so I really appreciate on how Etude started to made products with various shades for their international customers.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] EGLIPS Velvet Fit Tint Cream Cheese 06 Fig Cheese

EGLIPS Velvet Fit Tint Cream Cheese 06 Fig Cheese Review

EGLIPS Velvet Fit Tint Cream Cheese 06 Fig Cheese Review:

Eglips is one of the most well-known Korean (indie) brands internationally. I always see everyone hyping their lip and eye products, even there are tons of Korean and non-Korean beauty bloggers who review and show color swatch of their products. I want to try their lipstick but since the price is a bit high in my country, I never bought it.

Until I saw they came out with a new Velvet Tint for their new series, the Cream Cheese series. Just from the name itself it already caught my attention but sadly, it’s hard to find the claim, description, and other information in English for this tint. If you understand Korean, you can check their official website.

Not only the name, the shade range is also interest me. There are 5 shades and 3 of them are bright colors while the other 2 are more neutral. On the picture it shows that this tint looks so pretty for making a gradient lips so I choose shade 06 which I think look the prettiest among those 5 shades. But if you see closely, shade 06 and 07 looks so similar so I suggest you to search reviews on YouTube to see the difference between those 2.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Colorgram x Miffy Thunderbolt Tint Meringue 01 Apple

Colorgram x Miffy Thunderbolt Tint Meringue 01 Apple Review

Colorgram x Miffy Thunderbolt Tint Meringue 01 Apple Review:

Last February, Colorgram was back with their latest release and this time they did a collaboration with character Miffy! I read the news about Colorgram and Miffy collaboration (honestly I don’t even know what Miffy is until I search about it online) and the packaging is too cute too pass on. For this collaboration they make a collection which consists of lip tints, liquid shadows, concealer, cushion, and other products as well.

The thing is, Colorgram is one of the most difficult brands to find in my country, even I had a hard time in finding info about their new release including this tint. Apparently they didn’t have an official website so the only source you can find about them is through Olive Young’s website. But the website along with description of each product was in Korean so I couldn’t understand the information about this tint at all except that it has a moisturizing matte finish.

This tint is called Thunder Ball Tint Meringue and I think based on the name only, it’s a creamier version of their well-known Thunder Ball Tint Lacquer. I haven’t try the Lacquer version but I heard good things about it. From Colorgram, I’ve tried their Liquid Shadow and so far I’m so satisfied with how it performs on me so I decided to pick this tint, not only because the cute packaging but also because I want to know if it will work on me as good as their liquid shadow.

For the collaboration, they have 5 shades and I’ll be honest, all of the shades look so similar to each other! When I saw the official swatch picture, I was confused on how I should choose the shade because I saw almost no difference between those shades. At the end I chose shade 01 just because it is the lightest one out of those 5 shades.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] 2019 Etude House Colorful Vivid Tint OR203 Iced Persimmon

Etude House Colorful Vivid Tint OR203 Iced Persimmon Review

Etude House Colorful Vivid Tint OR203 Iced Persimmon Review:

If you didn’t know, Etude is one of many brands that keep releasing new product and following the trend. This time, Etude already launched their latest collection for S/S 2019 collection which is consists of blushers, matte liquid lips, shine liquid lips, and many others. I really want to get the collection but when I browsed their website, my eyes fell on the new tint called Colorful Vivid Tint.

Colorful Vivid Tint is not a part of the S/S collection but it is launched almost at the same time so I guess I can say it’s a product for S/S season as well. On social media, you can find complete swatch of this tint and as usual from Etude, their shade range is not too far from pinks, reds, and oranges shades. In total, they have 10 shades.

The price is very affordable so if you are a fan of Etude’s lip tint, this won’t be heavy on the budget. To be honest, Etude’s lip tints are not my favorite, for some reasons there’s always hit and miss with their lip products. That’s why I want to try to see if this tint will be hit or will be another miss for me.
