Review: Rom&ntic Moonight Collection (Rom&nd x NEONMOON)

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!

First Impressions: K-Beauty Haul (Stylevana)

Stylevana KBeauty Review Jigott Real Ampoule Mask, Frudia Blueberry Hydration Mask, Labiotte Wine Lip Tint, Logically Skin Aquatide Resurface Serum, Chica Y Chico One Shot Eye Palette

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that there is an affiliate code advertised.

New products and deliveries are always so exciting for me – so yes, I was super keen when this package from Stylevana arrived. I was starting to feel overwhelmed for a while but since pulling back on my spending and on some PR in the past few months, it’s given me more of a chance to enjoy what I do (and work at my own pace).

This haul is a new collaboration for me! Stylevana is an online store that specialises in Asian beauty – they carry products from Korea, Japan and even Taiwan. The latter two are less talked about because they’re harder to access online, so I’m glad that there’s a new source for them! Aside from the big range of products, Stylevana also offers free shipping for orders over USD$55.

From now until the end of November, you can also get 10-15% off your order with my code INF10STELLAR (excluding weekend deals and instant offers since they are already on sale).

So, read on if you’re keen to see what I received! I’ll be putting my initial thoughts into this post rather that full on reviews (especially for the Logically, Skin Serum) since I think that I’ll need to use that much more extensively to give proper insight. Here goes!

Review: Layering Lip Bar in Stubborn Rose (Laneige)

Laneige Layering Lip Bar Stubborn Rose Kbeauty Review StyleKorean

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.

It’s no secret that I’m a massive fan of Laneige, and I’ve been pretty dedicated in trying out all of their lip bar range – from the original, matte to tint, I’m literally tried them all. Along with their cushion (which is still one of my top favourites to this day) their lip bar was my introduction to the brand; this is back when the original was still selling out at a lot of stores.

Since then, they have released a number of additional formulas with this same gradient concept and – in my opinion – these are far superior to the original (which had always been a bit patchy for me). This new Layering Lip Bar has an updated layering design for more consistent application and comes in both Cream and Matte formulas spread over 20 shades.

I received this product to review and definitely want to get a few more shades – especially to try out the matte formula too! It’s currently selling for USD$25.20 (on sale from USD$36) from the StyleKorean website – they actually stock quite a lot of Laniege top products, so I would recommend checking out the range in general.

If you’re keen on this lip bar, or want to know how it compares with the others, read on for this review!

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: Luxetrance Lipsticks (Pat McGrath Labs)

Pat McGrath LuxeTrance Lipstick Review Sephora

Do you ever find a totally perfect product, and then freak out to find out it’s essentially discontinued? Well, welcome to my world because that’s exactly what happened with the Luxetrance Lipsticks! I had been eying the Pat McGrath Labs lipsticks for a while but had only bought the mini sizes because the full sizes are just really expensive! Only the Mattetrance lipsticks are available as minis, so I never had the opportunity to try the creme Luxetrance formula.

At the end of last year though, there was this incredible sale on the Pat McGrath website that saw the Luxetrance drop down to just AUD$17 (with free shipping) – and naturally, we all jumped on it. I was a bit late so there weren’t a lot of shades left, but I did manage to get two – Exxotica and 35mm.

As of the time of writing, only a very limited number of shades are still available on the official Pat McGrath website but they are still available at Sephora Australia if you want to get you hands on them. They are selling at full price of AUD$67 but I’m not sure if they will be reformulated and brought back in the future.

Now, let’s get into this review!

Review: Dotom Lip Plus Plumper (Keybo)

Keybo Dotom Lip Plus BB Cosmetic Kbeauty Review Lip Plumper

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that there is an affiliate code advertised.

Lip plumpers can be a very dividing product – people either love them or can’t stand them at all. Personally, I like the look of fuller lips but don’t like when they’re overdramatic, so these will generally give me the subtle effect that I’m after. I’ve tried quite a few of them already and they can really vary in level of intensity and effectiveness.

The one that I’m reviewing today is from Keybo, a kbeauty brand that’s completely new to me! The packaging for this actually caught my eye first but I wanted to try this out because I’ve been enjoying glosses on my ‘lazy’ make up days, and felt like this would be a good way to kill two birds with one stone (i.e. be both lazy and have nice lips). In the end, I think that this is a pretty good lip plumper, though it isn’t one that I reach for all the time – for reasons that I will discuss below!

The Dotom Lip Plus Plumper is available on BB Cosmetic for USD$11.40 and is also available in five shades. You can also use my code for 5% off (QAL3F6ZA8YZ)!

For now though, let’s get into this review.

Review: Veil Tint Dewy (CLIO)

CLIO Veil Tint Dewy 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.

CLIO is one of those k-beauty brands that I trust when it comes to make up. Of course, it’s natural that not all of their products suit my skin type (for example, those very popular dewy cushion foundations look ridiculous on me), they are still very consistent with their quality and brand values. I’ve been in love with them since back when I was studying in Korea and my friend got me into their Kill Brow and Kill Black lines, and those are still products that I recommend to this day!

The CLIO brand is all about bringing professional artistry quality makeup to an affordable, road shop setting. When you go into their stores, you’ll find that everything is somewhat nightlife and club inspired (hence they call themselves Club CLIO) so you can expect high pigmentation, long wearing and life-proof formulations.

StyleKorean just sent me through three of the Veil Tint Dewy (which I have been eying because of the gorgeous monochromatic packaging). I chose three shades from different colour families – Maroon Blood, Rose Milk Tea and Taro Rose – as I wanted to give a wholistic overview on how these perform.

If you want to get your hands on them, they are selling for USD$9.60 each (on sale from USD$19.20) at StyleKorean. But before that, lets get into this review!

New Release & Review: rêve de Paris Collection (Moonshot)

Moonshot Kbeauty Review Reve de Paris Collection StyleKorean

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.

It’s been a short while since I last got myself stuck into a new Moonshot collection (and, to be honest, I have no doubt that they’ve slowed down a bit since the YG Entertainment controversies in Korea) but their new release caught my eye immediately. I actually got an email from StyleKorean about this, since they launched the collection simultaneously in Korea, and was basically obsessed.

With the initial launch, they released the rêve de Paris Collection in a limited edition set. This is what they sent over to me, which includes the palette, one of the lipsticks and a Moonshot branded tote bag. Whilst this is no longer available – because it sold out like hot cakes – the entire range is available individually on the StyleKorean website.

The rêve de Paris Eyeshadow Palette is selling for USD$33 and the Stick Extreme Pro lipsticks are selling for USD$22 each – but definitely get in before the ones you want are sold out. Before you hop onto the StyleKorean website though, let’s get into this review!

Review: Juicy Lasting and Velvet Tint (Rom&nd)

Rom&nd Romand Zero Velvet Tint Zero Juicy Lasting Tint Kbeauty Review Anne of Green Gables Collection

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.

With well over 200 lip products in my collection, you’d think that I’d be sick and tired right? Nope. When ever I see new lip products – whether it’s a liquid lipstick, lipgloss or a bullet lipstick – I feel like a literal pouncing kitten. Before my obsession with eye palettes, lips were my big weakness and it kind of still is.

At the moment, I have loving both matte and glossy formulas but mostly in a feathered out, ‘wearable’ look so a lot of kbeauty tints have been great for this! When I was checking out Rom&nd, I found out that they actually have two different tints in their Anne of Green Gables Collection – there is the Juicy Lasting Tint and the Velvet Tint. Since I’m terrible at making decisions, I naturally wanted to try them both out so I picked out two shades from each that I knew I would love. I wanted to give more attention to the finish and formula of the tint, rather than whether or not I liked the colour.

The Zero Velvet Tint (Anne of Green Gables Edition) and the Juicy Lasting Tint (Anne of Green Gables Edition) are both available on the StyleKorean website for USD$13 each – or you can also find it in the original packaging for USD$14.30 too, so don’t worry too much if you miss out on this collection.

Before you jump onto their website though, let’s get into this review!

New Release: Crystal Aura Collection (Revlon)

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

Sweetheart. Sweetheart.

I am a sucker for limited edition releases, mostly because I love special packaging, and Revlon has really brought it this time! The Crystal Aura Collection launched in Australia a few weeks ago and, honestly, everyone who has seen these have thought that it was from a mid-high end brand (most definitely not drugstore). The design of it is so different from their usual and, in the grand scheme of drugstore cosmetics, has definitely gone the extra mile.

I was super lucky to actually receive most of this collection to test and review before the launch and I have been in love. I actually haven’t used much from Revlon before, since I don’t use a lot of drugstore make up in general, but I am definitely impressed enough that I want to be checking out some of their permanent range too. For this post, I’ll be chatting about their Crystal Lipstick, Glow Lip Oil, Lip Glow Gelee, Liquid Gleam Potion, Glow Gelée™, Putty Powder Eye Beam and the Liquid Alloy Eye Shadow. They also have a ColorStay Crystalized Eyeliner but I haven’t tried that one so check it out on the website instead.

This entire range is currently available at Priceline and Big W in Australia or, if you’re international, I would recommend checking out the official Revlon website for your local stockist.

So – this is a pretty big collection. Let’s get into it!
