Review: it Radiant CC Cover Cushion (Banila Co x Iphoria)

Banila Co iPhoria it Radiant CC Cover Cushion Review

I’ll be honest, I completely splurged at Banila Co because I am so excited about Taeyeon being their new model. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge (and probably embarrassing) fan of hers – and SNSD, of course. Prior to this, I had never actually never used anything from them, not even their super famous Clean it Zero cleansers. However, I think I’ve stocked up on a pretty good variety to get a good feel for their brand (and figure out their strengths and weaknesses).

So here I go with my first Banila Co review! This is a cushion that I wanted as soon as the collaboration came out. Of course, this desire was only further augmented with Taeyeon’s photoshoot came out. This is from their collaboration with Iphoria, a super quirky accessories brand and comes with four different cases. The refills are interchangeable – they are previously existing Banila Co formulas, so it is really only the packaging that’s different.

Review: Air Cushion Moisture Lasting (IOPE)

IOPE Air Cushion Moisture Lasting Natural Beige N21 Review

When I heard that IOPE had released a new series of their cushions, I was beyond excited. They now have a broader range of colours and finishes – ranging from matte, natural to dewy. Since I first tried their XP cushion, they had been on the top of my HG list, so I was really excited to see how they had improved the formula. And goodness, I am happy.

With this cushion, I bought it on G-Market around the time it was first released, so I also got an extra refill, a limited edition case (not photographed as I don’t have it on me, but you will see it on Instagram) and a bunch of samples. I was tempted to try out their higher coverage version, but I ended up going with their ‘Moisture Lasting’ formula. I’ve always been a big fan of dewy finishes, though often have issues with it slipping or caking during the day – as I’m not very good at touching up.

What I found with this cushion is that I rarely have to touch up, and the caking is super minimal. I used it throughout my trip in Korea and I am still using it now. I bought a lot of other cushions, but this one remains at the top of the list.

Introducing: OkCat Milk Face Cream

OkCat Costagram Skin Care Kbeauty

So I recieved an email today from ktown4u about a new product that they had brought in. Of course, of all things, I didn’t expect it to be OkCat skincare! It seems to be a milk based face cream with promises of hydration and a brightening effect – and packaging that is very reminiscent of 3CE’s of a similar name.

This one is a collaboration between 2PM’s Ok Taecyeon (the brilliant artist behind this kitty) and company called Costro. The brand is under Costagram which is targeted to a younger audience, specifically kpop fans. Have a look below and tell me what you think.
