Romand x Neonmoon Kbeauty Makeup Review StyleKorean

If you follow me on Instagram, then this is not a surprise to you – I am obsessed with the Rom&ntic Moonight collection! This is a collaboration between Rom&nd (who I have reviewed before) and a Korean brand called NEONMOON – they are primarily a retro inspired fashion brand and I love them! They are actually a big inspiration for my online store too (so you can see how I love them). Their brand is about a fun, nostalgic aesthetic and bright colours – perfectly reflected in these products.

I don’t have everything from this collection (because it would be insane if I did) but I’ve got almost everything – and I need to share my thoughts with you! I am so happy with this collection: from the packaging to the formulas.. it’s brilliant. Today I’ll be showing you the Zero Cushion, Better Than Eyes Quad, Better Than Cheek Blushes and the Glasting Water Tint. The only product that I’m missing is the Glasting Water Gloss – but it’s available if you want to get it!

This whole collection is available at StyleKorean with prices ranging from USD$11.20 – USD$20.80. This collection is limited edition so check out their website to get your hands on this quick (you won’t regret it).

Before you do that though, let’s get right into this review!

What type of moisturiser should I use? (Laneige’s Water Bank Collection)

Laneige Water Bank Collection Hydro Gel Moisture Cream Hydro Essence Review

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid and affiliate links are not used in this post.

Hydration is so important, but it is also something a lot of people seem confused about. I’ve had a surprising number of people confess that they don’t actually have a skincare routine and have never touched a moisturiser in their life: usually because they feel their skin is already oily or feel that face creams are too heavy.

So for today’s post, I wanted to do more than just write a review. Today, I want to unpack the Laneige Water Bank Collection and give my recommendations for when to use them. There are recommended skin types, but I’d like to discuss what the differences are between them, as well as giving suggestions for seasonal suitabilities.

I have three of the products on me but I want to talk about the whole range: this includes the Hydro Essence, Hydro Gel Moisturiser, Moisture Cream Moisturiser and the Moisture Cream Intensive Moisturiser. The first two have a lighter texture which is best for oily-leaning skin types and warmer weather, whilst the Moisture Cream (and the Intensive version) is better for dry skin and weather.

So, read on to find out more!

Review: Tonight Goodnight Kit (Missha)

Missha Tonight Goodnight Kit Kbeauty Review

This product was sent to me by StyleKorean for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that affiliate links are used on my blog. These go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

To be very honest, pretty packaging sucks me in every time and this Missha Tonight Goodnight Kit caught my eye for that exact reason – with an absolutely stunning purple design, it’s even cuter in this set pack. Of course, it’s even better now that I’ve tested it out and can confidently say that these are brilliant products! If you’re looking for a present, this is it.

In this review, I’ll be giving you some general information on the kit as well as a detailed on each product. You can buy them in this set, which is available on StyleKorean, for USD$30 (discounted from USD$60).

Alternatively, you can also pick up the products by themselves – there is the Tonight Brilliance Boosting Essence, Tonight Brilliance Oil in Cream and also the Tonight Brilliance Lip Balm. The lip balm isn’t included in this kit so I haven’t been able to try it out – but it’s heck cute!

Check these out at StyleKorean but, before you do, let’s get into this review!

New Release: Fig Collection (I’m From)

I'm From Fig Boosting Essence Cleansing Balm and Scrub Mask Review

When it comes to skincare, using fruit as the key ingredient isn’t anything new – especially within kbeauty. Sometimes it’s more to do with the scent but, most of the time, it has a lot to do with that fruits’ natural chemicals and benefits. A great example, and the most well known, would be with citrus and Vitamin C. In the end, all fruits are different and you can find a plethora of different skin concerns that can be treated with these formulations.

This new release from I’m From uses Fig, which I’ve never actually eaten before let alone seen in skincare. Because of this, I went into testing without any specific expectations but I was pleasantly surprised! The collection includes the Fig Boosting Essence, Fig Cleansing Balm and the Fig Scrub Mask. It’s available on the Wishtrend website with prices ranging from USD$30-$35.

Since these are a new release, I’ve only used them for about a week or two so the below are mostly my initial thoughts on the products. However, I definitely have my favourites already! At the moment, this range is on sale for an introductory 10% off (limited time only), as well as my code for a special discount: STELLA15 (until May 31st CST)

If you’d like to pick up any of these or explore the I’m From brand, hop on over to the Wishtrend website. Before that though – lets check out the new Fig Collection!

Review: Jeju Cherry Blossom Collection (Innisfree)

Innisfree Cherry Blossom Collection Kbeauty Review

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid and affiliate links are not used in this post.

Cute collections always make me smile and, of course, Innisfree has succeeded again with their 2020 Jeju Color Picker Collection – this year inspired by cherry blossoms! It is perfectly timed with the season in Korea and was available from March to the end of April, but availability has been extended due to recent events. Instead, they will sell the remaining stock once they reopen stores too!

All of these products take inspiration from the blossoms, so you can expect gorgeous packaging and a lot of pink! This collection includes a Nail Set, Matte Mineral Setting Powder, Luminizer, Lip Tinted Sticks (available in 3 shades) and – of course – the Cherry Blossom Eyeshadow Palette. I was lucky enough to get my hands on most of this collection and I am in love! It’s actually rare that I like every single thing in a collection, but I couldn’t find a way to dislike anything. I’ll say it now that this is definitely highly recommended from me.

That being said, Innifree stores in Australia are currently closed due to COVID19 so they are only selling from their official stockist (AdoreBeauty), as well as other unofficial stores. I noticed that AdoreBeauty only carry their skincare so if you’d like to get anything from this collection, you may need to wait until stores reopen here in Australia. It’s worth the wait though!

And now, let’s get into this review!

Review: Quad Active Boosting Essence (By Wishtrend)

By Wishtrend Quad Active Boosting Essence Kbeauty Review

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that affiliate links are used on my blog. These go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

When it comes to Korean skincare, one of their most unique additions is a facial essence – in fact, this product originated from Korea. It is a hybrid of a toner and serum, formulated with a concentration of active ingredients to hydrate and rebalance, as well as boost the efficacy of other products.

There are a lot of great essences with varying speciality skin concerns on the market but the one that I’ve been trying out lately is a new addition to the By Wishtrend line. This is the Quad Active Boosting Essence, which has primarily anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.

I was actually quite surprised to receive this because, as we all know, the world is in a bit of a state at the moment and – understandably – a lot of product launches and PR send outs have been postponed. I actually didn’t expect to be reviewing much in the next few months but this really came at a convenient time.

Since I’m spending so much time at home now, I barely wear make up (whereas I used to wear a full face every day) and am instead taking time to develop a morning and evening skincare routine. I used the product twice a day for approximately two weeks and definitely saw some good results!

This is currently selling for USD$23 on the Wishtrend website.

As a special promotion, I have also been given a code (STELLA15) for 15% off – valid until April 30.

And now, let’s just dive right into this review!

Review: Youthful Glow Sugar Mask (Klairs)

Klairs Youthful Glow Sugar Mask Kbeauty Review

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that affiliate links are used on my blog. These go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

I have tried out a handful of Klairs products since getting into kbeauty and I really like their simple approach to their brand and formulations. Of course, not everything is going to work for everyone – it all comes down to skin type and personal preference really. However, I trust the brand a lot so I’m always down to try something new from them.

One of the products that had been catching my eye on Instagram is the Youthful Glow Sugar Mask. I have actually been eying since the first launch but it was not yet available on the main Wishtrend website – it’s here now though and I’m so glad that I can finally satisfy my sugary curiosity! Although it is described as a sugar mask, it is actually multi-purpose and can also be used as a scrub.

It is marketed as being suitable for all skin types but reviews seem to say this is more targeted for dry to normal skin. Since I lean more to the oily side, I was more limited with how I can use the product. However, I have been trying it out for a while and I’m really confident that I can give this a thorough review!

So, if you want to check out the Youthful Glow Sugar Mask then pop onto Wishtrend (where it’s selling for USD$24). Otherwise, here’s the review!

Review: Cream Skin Refiner (Laneige)

Laneige Cream Skin Refiner Toner & Moisturiser Kbeauty Review

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid and affiliate links are not used in this post.

As someone who has combination skin, it can be pretty difficult to balance the oil production on my skin. My t-zone tends to get very oily whilst the rest of my face is fairly normal. Because of this, I gravitate towards lightweight textures and formulas, but struggle to find something that is still going to hydrate properly during drier seasons.

Of course, who else would answer my needs but Laneige!

They are one of my favourite skincare brands and I use a lot of their products religiously. A few months ago (some time last year), they released their Cream Skin Refiner which was incredibly popular and has since developed into a complete line! I was fairly late to this bandwagon because it took a while for the product to finally reach Australia, but here it is!

Rebranded for the Australian market as the Cream Skin Toner & Moisturizer, this is essentially the Skin Refiner with a new name (which makes more sense for the Western market). It is currently available at Sephora Australia for AUD$41 or, of course, you can also search which ever stockist is relevant to your country (and, if you’re lucky, then you might have access to even more from the Cream Skin line).

Before you do though, let’s get into this review because I have been testing this out very thoroughly and have some great things to say!

Review: Multi Solution Triple V Ampoule (Swanicoco)

Swanicoco Bitamin C Multi Solution Triple V Ampoule Kbeauty Review

This product was sent to me by StyleKorean for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that affiliate links are used on my blog. These go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

Have you guys heard of a brand called Swanicoco? I was introduced to them by StyleKorean who, at the time that I received this product, had just brought them to their store. However, I’ve actually seen their stuff around on Instagram before! To be honest, I can’t say that I am that familiar with them though, but I was still interested to try them out.

Swanicoco is a brand that focuses on the use of natural ingredients – in fact, the founder started out by making natural skincare for her family’s sensitive and atopic skin conditions. All products from the brand use 90% to 100% natural ingredients and are free from animal testing. In addition, the brand excludes any harmful ingredients from their formulations (pigments, synthetic perfumes, chemical preservatives, alcohol, mineral oil, paraben and benzophenone) so they are also suitable for sensitive skin.

I decided to start off with their Multi Solution Triple V Ampoule. I love brightening products and, since my skin has been quite irritated with all of my break outs lately, it seemed like I needed a new and more gentle formula.

This is currently available on the StyleKorean website for USD$24.20 so definitely jump on there if you want to check it out.

Otherwise, let’s get into this review!

New Release: Brow Kits (Full Brow)

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I love Full Brow products and actually use their stuff on a daily basis. I recommend them all the time and have actually turned a few people onto the brand too – because who doesn’t love having great brows for a great price?

I saw an announcement on Instagram just two days ago that they will be launching some new Brow Kits – which are perfectly curated sets that all target different brow looks and preferences! These are a permanent addition to their range but, of course, it’s coming just in time for Christmas and I really think these would be a great gift.

If you’d like to read more of my thoughts on some individual products from the brand, then check out Full Brow on my blog but – otherwise – I’m going to jump right into talking about these kits!

Let’s get into it!
