[REVIEW] SOME BY MI Hyaluron Moisturizing Glow Luminous Ampoule Mask

SOME BY MI Hyaluron Moisturizing Glow Luminous Ampoule Mask Review

SOME BY MI Hyaluron Moisturizing Glow Luminous Ampoule Mask Review:

SOME BY MI has been quite a hype nowadays, isn’t it? It produces a wide range of products, whose SOME BY MI 30-days AHA BHA PHA Miracle Serum and SOME BY MI Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Toner I’ve already tried. Not long ago, SOME BY MI also launched sheet masks (yeay!), and they are SOME BY MI Hyaluron Moisturizing Glow Luminous Ampoule Mask, SOME BY MI Diamond Brightening Glow Luminous Ampoule Mask, and SOME BY MI Tea Tree Calming Glow Luminous Ampoule Mask.

Did you notice that their name all contains ‘Glow Luminous Ampoule Mask’? Isn’t it just natural for me to be tempted? Meanwhile, SOME BY MI masks are considerably quite pricey so I only bought one in the end : SOME BY MI Hyaluron Moisturizing Glow Luminous Ampoule Mask.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Moonshot Micro Settingfit Cushion 201 Beige

Moonshot Micro Settingfit Cushion 201 Beige Review

Moonshot Micro Settingfit Cushion 201 Beige Review:

When I went to Seoul last 2017, I was not as hooked on K-beauty as I am right now. I wasn’t familiar with must-try products except for those offered by road shop brands available in the Philippines like Etude House, Tony Moly, etc. Needless to say, I was really fascinated to see women of different ages (from teens waiting in line for a ride in Everland, ladies on their commute to work, and even grandmothers on the train towards hiking destinations) applying cushion. This made me want to get my hands on this magical compact which seems to be the secret behind the coveted Korean porcelain skin.

The first ever cushion I bought was from Laneige but found it too heavy and dewy for my liking (not at all suitable for the hot and humid weather we have). I ended up just using that one a few times and giving away the refill it came with. This bad experience didn’t discourage me to avoid cushions all together though.

On the contrary, it actually made me want to try out more brands to look for my perfect match. It was last year when an online shopping site had their crazy sale on Moonshot products. All their cushions were sold for only $9.99 which I thought was such a bargain so I grabbed that opportunity to get myself one.

Reading the description of the different kinds of cushions available from the brand, I decided that this Micro Settingfit one is the most ideal for my oily skin since it claims to have a matte finish which my oily skin can benefit from. It didn’t have a refill (unlike their Balm type cushion) which was quite a bummer but I still decided to purchase this one.

By the way, Moonshot is a very new brand for me. The only information I know about it is that it has affiliations with the entertainment company YG. I’m not really a K-pop fan anymore but I believe Black Pink is their current endorser. Who wouldn’t want to achieve Lisa’s perfect skin right?

Anyway, I’ve been using this cushion for months now and I’d like to share my experience and opinions about it. If you’re curious to know if I’ve finally found my perfect cushion, please read until the end. For now, here are some details about the product:

[REVIEW] 2019 NEW COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner

COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner Review

COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner was purchased by Cosmeperks.

When Nigama contacted me to do a sponsored review and offered COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner, I was very interested seeing this product’s advertisement. First, I had no experience trying COSRX products before (yes I know I was outdated for not joining the hype); and second, COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner hadn’t been sold in my country yet. Aaanndd, it has such fascinating ingredients list I expect quite a lot! After rambling around the product details on the internet (which was very very rare), I found out that COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner was a product of COSRX x SYDNEY collaboration. That SYDNEY name didn’t ring a bell to me, but it might sound familiar for some of you.

To be honest, my previous SOME BY MI Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Toner hadn’t ran out yet, but on the bright side, I could do the exact comparison between COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner and it. A little flashback, I had to remind how satisfied I was with the latter and I’m quite curious to see whether COSRX could beat the SOME BY MI result. So, in order to make it more evident, I decided to use them parallel to both sides of my face.

[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!

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] 2019 NEW Etude House Powder Rouge Tint RD301 Nude Red

Etude House Powder Rouge Tint RD301 Nude Red Review

Etude House Powder Rouge Tint RD301 Nude Red was purchased by Cosmeperks.

I saw the new Powder Rouge Tint when I watched Pony’s (Korean beauty influencer) makeup tutorial. If I remember correctly, she used a red shade and she said that the tint is good in quality. After that, I checked Etude’s official website but it wasn’t sold yet at that moment so I think it would be an exclusive release where you can buy it on the store only and not online.

But suddenly Nigama offered me to try the tint! Actually me and Etude House lip tints have a hit and miss relationship, sometimes I really love their tint and on another day I dislike their other tints so I thought it would be fun to see if this time I will love their new release or not.

If you are a fan of red lips, I think this release will be your favorite one. The Powder Rouge Tint is available in 8 shades and all of them are reds with 4 cool undertones and the other 4 with neutral and warm undertone. The swatch itself scared me a bit because I’m not the type who will wear deep and bold shades but since Pony said it can be used thinly and the color looked gorgeous on her, I’m excited to try it.

[REVIEW] Illiyoon Ceramide Ato Concentrate Cream

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.

[REVIEW+SWATCHES] Etude House Play Color Eyes Bakehouse

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.
