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!

Review: Aladdin Collection (MAC Cosmetics)

MAC Cosmetics Australia Aladdin Collaboration Beauty Review

MAC Cosmetics has a talent for consistently killing me with every limited edition release – and their recent collaboration with Disney for the new Aladdin movie is no different! This post is actually a bit late because I’ve been so busy lately and not had time to write as often, but that’s given me the chance to really test out these products and gather my thoughts about it.

For this release, I was really lucky to have been invited to the pre-release event (which is why you would have seen me talk about these before they actually launched in Australia) – aside from testing out and playing with the products, we also got to watch a demonstration from their make up artist, which has really given me some good insight into the vision for this Aladdin collection.

This is a limited edition collection that was released one week ahead of the Aladdin movie (which came to cinemas May 23 and is so good, by the way). This collection is centred around Princess Jasmine and “features smoky metallic and desert shades that reflect Jasmine’s strong-willed beauty,” as well as some beautiful Agrabah inspired packaging.

Mac Cosmetics gifted me with the eyeshadow palette and one of the lip glasses to try out – which is actually good because it’s been a long time since I used a pressed shadow from their brand, and I have never used their lip glasses before either. Trying them out was definitely a whole new world for me (haha – okay, I’ll stop).

Now, let’s get into this review!

Review: Lip Motion (B By Banila)

B By Banila Co Lip Motion Lipstick Kbeauty Stylekorean 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.

Admittedly, I am a total sucker for Banila Co. I use their oil cleansing balm almost religiously and have also liked most of the cosmetics that I’ve tried out as well. For me, my love for Banila Co started when they brought in Taeyeon as their model and – aside from just loving her in general – I loved how they did her make up and styling for all of the advertising campaigns. I felt like they were so much more trend-forward and lively than the previous Nature Republic advertisements (they started to look real weird in later years).

Since then, I’ve been really keen on the brand and keeping a close eye on their new releases. I find that Banila Co is a bit hard to buy online, since they are mostly just famous for their cleanser, so I practically jumped when I saw that B. By Banila was being stocked at StyleKorean! This is their new sister brand that specialises in cosmetics – so it’s right down my alley.

There are a handful of products from them that are available on the StyleKorean website but I decided to start my first foray into this sub-brand with their Lip Motion lipsticks! These are selling on the website for USD$18 and also come in two different finishes – and I tried out both, of course. I found that I lean towards the matte formula because thats what I’m used to wearing every day but the glossier version is also really pretty and versatile too.

So, let’s get into this review!

Review: Lip Rouge & Powerdation (VT Cosmetics – Part III)

VT Cosmetics BTS Kbeauty Review BB Cosmetics

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. The small profits go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

We are at my final post for the VT Cosmetics reviews! I hope that you have been enjoying these so far and that they have been informative for you in choosing what to buy or to skip out on. In general, I have found the brand to be a bit of a hit-or-miss so I would definitely be looking into reviews for anything I buy from them.

For the last post here, I want to be sharing two more cosmetic products from them and – once again, and quite predictably – there was one that I liked and another that I will not be using again. First off is the Super Tempting Lip Rouge, which I have in two shades with two different finishes, and then there is the Gloria Powerdation which is a matte finish liquid foundation.

All of these products, as well as even more from the VT Cosmetics line and other brands are available at BB Cosmetic, and that you can also use my code for a little 5% discount – QAL3F6ZA8YZ – it isn’t much but personally, I never say no to saving money.

So, let’s get right into this review!

Review: R U 16 Taste-Chu (16 Brand)

16 Brand R U 16 Taste Chu Lipstick StyleKorean 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.

I love bullet lipsticks but, in this case, the packaging definitely won me over. I know! I’m always a sucker for things but like but, considering that this is a 16 Brand product, I was also pretty confident that the formula would be decent! I wasn’t wrong too, because after trying these out, I totally get why some people have been raving about them and I already want more shades.

This is the R U 16 Taste-Chu Lipstick from 16 Brand. They are essentially a blur-look matte finish lipstick that is candy themed. All of the shades are named after some sort of sweet and the lipstick shades (and scents) are good enough to eat. In fact, my mum thought that someone else me chocolate when these first arrived… hehe!

These products were sent to me for review by StyleKorean, who actually carry a really great range of 16 Brand stuff! The lipsticks come in four different shades (which I will discuss below) and I have two here to swatch and review – Brown Fudge and Cherry Almond.

If you’d like to pick these up, they’re currently on sale for USD$14.40 (down from USD$18) on the StyleKorean website but do grab them quickly! They were almost sold out when I looked last and they just restocked, so I think these go quick.

And now, let’s get into this!

Tutorial: Valentines Day Look with Althea

Althea Korea Make Up Tutorial Valentines Day Look

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

I was never a big fan of Valentines Day as it always seemed like such a commercialised excuse of an event. Love is wonderful and amazing, but I feel like that’s something we should be celebrating every day. All of those roses and chocolates don’t really mean anything – though admittedly, I would never decline roses and chocolate (especially not chocolate). The thing that I like best about these sort of celebratory days though, is that it gives an excuse for some themed make up looks! And they’re really great for boosting creativity – which is what I’ve needed lately.

Recently, Althea Korea launched a selection of make up from their own brand – all of which they sent me over to play around with and to create a pictorial. In the past, I’ve used their skincare and some setting powders – most of which I’ve loved – but this is actually their first foray into colour cosmetics. The most logical thing to do would be a Korean inspired look but I wanted to do something a little different today.

So, today I’ll be showing you how I achieved this Valentines Day themed look with cute rosy cheeks, some pretty raspberry tones and a cute little heart detailing. Although this is a Valentines look, this is really something you could wear for any occasion – because love is never out of style! I wanted to do something more creative but that would also be wearable enough so that it can be worn outside of instagram.

In this tutorial/pictorial, I’ll be featuring the new Althea Korea cosmetics too so, let’s go!

Review: Ink Velvet Mini Mini Lipstick (Peripera)

Peripera Ink Velvet Mini Mini Lipstick Set 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.

I love trying out new lip products but, truth be told, I don’t think I have ever finished a lipstick in my life – they’ve gone bad, or been accidentally smushed and ruined, but never actually finished. I’ve always felt like I needed to buy a full size of every product but have since realised what a waste it is. I now much prefer to use mini sizes for lipsticks; they’re better to put in your bag anyway and I still get a lot of use out of them.

In addition, they’re also a brilliant gift idea because they’re easy to create sets with while still being relatively affordable, so you’ll be sure that there’s shades to suit them.

It’s really a perfect idea that Peripera released this set of mini Ink Velvet Lipsticks for the 2018 holiday season and – even though I’m a little bit late with this – it’s okay! This is the Mini Mini Ink Velvet Stick Set which contains a set of five mini lipsticks in varying shades from neutral corals to a brighter, warm red. I tested these out most days since I received them and have also experimented with carrying them around so I’m pretty prepared for this review!

If you want to get your hands on these, they are available on the StyleKorean website for USD$33.60 (full price is USD$42). Otherwise, let’s get on with the review!
