Espoir Colorconic Velvet Tint Laquer 901 Sweet Toast Review

Espoir Colorconic Velvet Tint Lacquer 901 Sweet Toast Review: (Product purchased by Cosmeperks)

I must say I was reticent of the quality of Espoir and thought there was an over hype surrounding the brand. But in the end I was disappointed with something that was not the quality, and fell in love with the quality itself! In Korea Espoir is a brand you must try if you like lipsticks, and in my opinion they have a true ability of going multinational!

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] NEW The Face Shop Gelato Tint 05 Brown Bonbon Chocolate

The Face Shop Gelato Tint 05 Brown Bonbon Chocolate Review

The Face Shop Gelato Tint 05 Brown Bonbon Chocolate Review:

No one can deny that The Face Shop is one of the best in making an eye-catching packaging. Their Coca Cola and Apeach collections can prove that and most people I know (including me) are buying their products just because of the packaging only. I’m weak to cute packaging so it’s not weird that once again I purchased their newest release, the Gelato Tint just because of the packaging.

I was browsing for some new products on one of my favorite Korean beauty shops when I saw this lip tint. Let’s say just the advertisement alone already made me want to purchase the whole shades range. They actually made it in an ice cream shape! Who can resist that? The other reason is that it’s almost rare for Face Shop to make a new product (they usually just re-package the product in different packaging) so I’m curious to try it.

The new lip tint, the Gelato Tint is available in 6 shades and some of the shades look so similar to each other so I have a hard time in choosing the most different one. The shades are basically only pinks and corals so in the end I ended up choosing based on the flavor only. They have different flavors such as vanilla, mint, watermelon, chocolate, grape, and mango. So if you don’t know which shade to buy because of the similarity, maybe you can choose according to your favorite flavor.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Moonshot Microfit Cushion SPF50+/PA+++ 301 Natural Beige

Moonshot Microfit Cushion SPF50+ PA+++ 301 Natural Beige Review

Moonshot Microfit Cushion SPF50+/PA+++ 301 Natural Beige Review:

Moonshot is a brand I’ve always been interested in due to its chic, sleek and often minimalist aesthetic. If I remember correctly, I first heard of the brand due to its popular Jelly Pots, which were raved about by various beauty bloggers a few years back. However, due to scarcity in local stores (I often prefer to swatch makeup products beforehand) and their products’ often mid-high price tag, I eventually just shrugged the urge off.

However, when a flagship Moonshot store opened up locally and later held a number of products on sale, I decided to give in and ended up getting myself one of their cushions as I was coincidentally running out of base makeup. So, how did the Microfit Cushion – or also known as the “GD/G-Dragon Cushion” hold up in humid climate?

[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.

Etude House Soft Drink Tint OR201 Grapefruit Fantasy Review

Etude House Soft Drink Tint OR201 Grapefruit Fantasy Review:

When I saw Etude posting their latest product, the Soft Drink Tint, I thought the packaging is very cute but the color selection is pretty basic and similar to each other. I didn’t plan to get it because of the shades but then I read Ana’s review along with the complete soft drink tint swatches (thanks to her for showing the swatches) so I got to know what the shades will look in real life.

The tint is available in 5 different shades, 4 being bold, vivid colors and the other one is more like a lip topper with a glossy finish. Among those 4 colored shades, I pick the shade Grapefruit Fantasy because it’s more my shade. Actually I wanted to get the red one at first but when I saw how red it was, I changed my mind.

It is summer in Korea so I think this tint is perfect because it has summer vibe and as its name, soft drink is really popular when the weather is hot. As expected, Etude House is one brand that follow the trend and always giving us new products with cute and unexpected packaging.

[REVIEW] Mamonde All Stay Foundation SPF25 PA++ 13 Porcelain

Mamonde All Stay Foundation SPF25 PA++ 13 Porcelain Review

Mamonde All Stay Foundation SPF25 PA++ 13 Porcelain Review:

Mamonde is one of the most well-known Korean beauty brands internationally. Thanks to their brand ambassador Park Shin Hye years ago, their lip tints were hyped and sold out almost everywhere and their cushions were famous as well. I never tried any of their complexion product so I was intrigued when I heard they launched a new foundation.

All Stay Foundation is the latest foundation from Mamonde and I think they release it last May (I’m not too sure so don’t count me on it). I was browsing and searching for information about this product and from what I found, a lot of Korean beauty bloggers had tried it and their reviews were mix. Some said it was their favorite foundation while others said it wasn’t worth the money.

Regardless of the mix reactions, this foundation was picked by Allure Korea as their foundation of the month so I decided to purchase it and try it myself. One thing I love was they have 6 shades in total which pretty rare for a Korean foundation! Unfortunately while the fairest shade is perfect for my fair complexion, the darkest shade are not deep enough for deeper skin tone. I can say the darkest shade will suit medium-tan skin tone the best.

[REVIEW] Loreal Paris Color Riche Metallic Addiction 631 Rose Champagne

Loreal Paris Color Riche Metallic Addiction 631 Rose Champagne Review

Loreal Paris Color Riche Metallic Addiction 631 Rose Champagne Review:

Metallic lips have been making a strong return recently — they’re an easy way to spice up any look in a flash (pun intended!). I have been on the hunt for an affordable, easy-to-wear, moisturizing, not-too-in-your-face metallic lipstick (which admittedly in retrospect seems to be quite the list of criteria).

At the beauty section of the duty-free store in the airport, this newly released series of Color Riche Metallic Addiction lipsticks by L’oréal Paris caught my eye. I had previously seen these on my feed on Facebook, but never really had the chance to swatch them in store. They looked very promising, so I purchased #631 Rose Champagne, which is a subtle glossy light pink shade with gold glitter. Let’s see how it holds up!

[REVIEW] Moonshot The First Moon Drawing Gravity 4001 Highlighter

Moonshot The First Moon Drawing Gravity 4001 Highlighter Review

Moonshot The First Moon Drawing Gravity 4001 Highlighter Review:

I’ve been travelling quite a bit recently, so I’ve had to really narrow down and select products that are travel-friendly and convenient to use. Highlighters are actually a very versatile product as they can not only be used to give dimension to the high points of the face, but also as an eyeshadow or even as a lip topper to give some much needed glam and glow.

At Moonshot’s flagship store in Myeongdong, Seoul, these chubby sticks — the highlighter, to be specific — caught my eye. Highly pigmented, they had an extremely smooth texture that simply glided onto the back of my hand. The highlighter (shade 4001) had a slight holographic duochrome effect, which is actually quite rare for Korean products, and it ended up being one of the two Moonshot products that I purchased.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at how The First Moon Drawing: Gravity holds up!

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Innisfree Vivid Slimfit Tint 01 Ice Peach Tea

Innisfree Vivid Slimfit Tint 01 Ice Peach Tea Review

Innisfree Vivid Slimfit Tint 01 Ice Peach Tea Review: (Product purchased by Cosmeperks)

Innisfree recently just launched another lip product called the Vivid Slim Fit Tint. It’s a lip tint with a vivid pigmentation and the product size is pretty slim and tall, exactly true to its name. They have 7 shades for the first launch and judging from the swatch picture, it’s a pretty matte lip tint.

They launched another collection called the Jeju Color Picker with 3 new shades and I ordered it already from my local seller, but they sent me the wrong product and turned out they got the wrong items too from the supplier but Nigama was so nice to let me try this product instead of the Jeju Color Picker one!

Among the 7 shades, most of them are in pinks and reds, as usual for a Korean lip product but I’m sure everyone can find their favorite shade since most of the colors, even though they lean towards warm tone, are pretty universal and can be worn by every skin tone, from fair to deep skin tones.
