Review: Blur Filter Powder (3CE)

StyleKorean 3CE Studio Blur Filter Powder 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 have a new favourite setting powder, and I think that I’m going to be using this for a long time! Since I have combination skin that starts off dry and gets quite oily during the day, I don’t go a single day without setting my make up. Usually, I would be relying on sprays for this but – on occasion – I have tried powders too. There are a few that I like but, generally, I feel like powders sit on top of my skin and can make my foundation look cakey. However, I was really excited with this product because it is absolutely perfect for fixing foundation in place, it gives your skin a super soft finish and it is finely milled enough that it blends right into your skin.

This is the Blur Filter Powder from 3CE that I’ve been looking at since their launched this 3CE Studio collection but I’ve been a little hesitant because it is a loose powder. Although I find that they’re effective, I’m not a fan of the mess and the difficulty with carrying it around. Generally, I use pressed powders instead. However, because the packaging for this was so cute and also because I was interested in the duo colours, I still wanted to try this.

This was sent to me for review purposes by StyleKorean and it is currently selling on their website for USD$19.53 – definitely check out their website if you’re keen to try this out or looking for a new setting powder! And with that, let’s get on with the review.

Review: Carbonic Sebum Kill Mist (So Natural)

StyleKorean So Natural Pore Tensing Carbonic Sebum Kill Mist 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 am one of those people who absolutely lives by mist products. Whether it is for hydrating or if they’re setting sprays, I have a bunch of them sitting on my vanity, more back ups on my shelf… and I’m also always carrying one or two smaller ones in my bag. It’s safe to say that I love these products and, when I saw this on the StyleKorean website I was super excited. This is the Carbonic Sebum Kill Mist from So Natural – one of the newer brands that they started selling at the end of 2017.

According to the website, So Natural is a brand that is centred around a naturalistic philosophy where products are formulated to strength skin’c natural properties – it is ‘informed by nature and formulated with science’. Personally, I think that this is a really great approach to take when it comes to skincare so I’m keen to try a few different things from them.

This product is a sebum controlling fact mist that claims to also tighten up pores. I tried it out alone, underneath my make up and on top of it – I definitely took my time with experimenting this the uses of this product. This product is available on the StyleKorean website for USD$15.79 and they also have a wide range from So Natural to check out.

And, without further ado, let’s get right into it!

Review: Apple Mint Fresh Bubble Foam (Beyond)

Beyond Apple Mint Fresh Bubble Foam BB Cosmetic Kbeauty Review

It’s been a while! With the new year just past us, and with me taking a small break from everything just to rest (and shop), I’ll be kicking off this year’s reviews with a product that I was sent from BB Cosmetic. I received this last year but started using it at the end of December when my previous foam cleanser had run out.

This is the first product that I’ve tried from the brand Beyond – they are a cruelty free brand from Korea and I first heard about them from my friend back in 2017 (when we went to Seoul). It’s a very light, bubbling foam cleanser which is suitable as a second cleanser. I also tested it out by itself (without an oil cleanser beforehand) and it actually does a pretty good job of cleaning off my make up so if you’re not a fan of two step cleansing, then you may be interested in this too!

The Apple Mint Fresh Bubble Foam was on sale at BB Cosmetic for USD$8.50 but, unfortunately, it’s currently out of stock. However, I’ll still link the page in case it comes back in later on and you can also check out the Everstar Smooth Foam Cleanser that Beyond makes!

Their online store also has free international shipping with no minimum purchase, and you can also get an additional 8% off with my code (which I don’t make money from, but will bring down that cart total): QAL3F6ZA8YZ

This is going to be a fairly short and simple review, so let’s get right into it!

Review: Bubble Bubble Lip Mask (Rire)

Rire Bubble Bubble Lip Mask BB Cosmetic Kbeauty Review

I use matte lip sticks and lip stains a lot, so it makes sense that my lips are pretty dry a lot of the time. To counteract that, I use the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask almost every night (which I previously reviewed for BB Cosmetic) but I have also been after a quick, daily treatment that I could use in the mornings if I forget my lip mask the night before. And into the picture comes Rire! If you’ve been reading then you’ll know that I have a bit of a hit or miss relationship with their brand – some of their products have been interesting but, overall, most of them haven’t really impressed me. In general, they seem to have very innovative and different product concepts, but often fall a bit flat when it comes to the effectiveness of their formulas.

For that reason, I admit that I went into this review fairly hesitant. However, after trying out this Bubble Bubble Lip Mask, I think that have finally found a Rire product that I actually – kind of – like!

This was sent to me for review by BB Cosmetic and it sells on their website for USD$8.50 which is a decent price – it isn’t the cheapest lip scrub, but this is a pretty unique product so I think that it’s worth it. So you can check it out on their website; they also have free international shipping with no minimum purchase, and you can also get an additional 8% off with my code (which I don’t make money from, but will bring down that cart total): QAL3F6ZA8YZ

Well, let’s jump into it!

Product Launch: TECA 1% Barrier Cream (Wishtrend)

Wishtrend TECA 1% Barrier Cream Kbeauty Review

This product was sent to me by Wishtrend 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.

As someone who didn’t suffer from too much acne back in my teenage years and, to this day, generally only gets a few pimples now and then, I really didn’t think that break outs would be an issue for me – not so suddenly! However, since returning from my trip to Vietnam, I had an area of really badly damaged skin (pimples, scarring). My skin hadn’t agreed with the weather there and, while cleansing my skin with the Wishtrend Green Tea Enzyme Powder Wash did help, I wasn’t using it frequently enough to completely prevent break outs.

What great timing it is that Wishtrend came out with another product for me to try and – I swear – they are tracking my lifestyle! This time, they have released the TECA 1% Barrier Cream which is targeted to post-acne recover and weakened skin (i.e. me).

This product will be launching on their website on December 12th but, while I usually aim to have these reviews tested and ready by the launch date to tell everyone about it, I decided to take my time giving this a real test.

Let’s go onto the review!

Review: All Kill Black Peeling Pad (Rire)

BB Cosmetic Rire All Kill Black Peeling Pad Kbeauty Review

After the failure that was the Rire lip powders, I’ve been waiting to give them another shot but none of their products had really caught my eye. However, I recently received two things from their brand to review so I figured that now would be a better time than ever to relook into the brand. This is their All Kill Black Peeling Pad and it reminds me a lot of the Neogen Peeling Pads. The main difference, aside from the ingredients, is that these come in individual packages.

These were sent to me by BB Cosmetic but, of course, I’ll always be giving my full honest opinion on these. They are selling on the website for USD$15.60, which is a bit pricey considering that you only get 10 in a pack, and the Neogen have 30 pads for under USD$20. I also wish that they were sold individually for people to test out.

Anyway, please remember to check out BB Cosmetic. They have free international shipping with no minimum purchase, and you can also get an additional 8% off with my code (which I don’t make money from, but will bring down that cart total): QAL3F6ZA8YZ

Review: Glow Awakening Cream (Huxley)

Huxley Glow Awakening Cream 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.

After trying out the Huxley Oil & Extract Mask (which I talked about in my YouTube video and will most likely write a review for it later too) I got really into the brand! Their sheet mask did some incredible things for my skin, so I wanted to try out some other products from their line. I checked out the range that StyleKorean had on their website and, although they aren’t a cheap brand, I found that they’re also decently priced for the quality and effect of it.

Since I’m really into brightening products, I decided to try out the Glow Awakening Cream (I was also looking at the Brightly Ever After Essence which I think I will try at a later date too) and I have to say – very boldly – that this is legitimately the best tone up/whitening cream that I have ever used! Since I started getting into kbeauty, I’d been trying out a lot of different tone up creams to brighten and even out my complexion.

Since most of them leave a very obvious white cast on my skin, I end up using them on my neck (to even out colour) since it makes my foundation look too pale without giving me a brightened glow. This product, however, is the exact opposite and it has some great skincare ingredients too – hence why I use it twice a day.

It is selling for USD$32.71 on StyleKorean – which I know isn’t cheap for a kbeauty skincare product but the added cost is definitely worth it. So read on for my full review on this product and rest assured that this is one I am recommending to you!

Review: Blush Cushion (3CE)

3CE cushion blusher stylekorean 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 saw these cushion blushes in 3CE in Myeongdong and I nearly bought them – only, I quickly remembered that StyleKorean had actually mailed these to me for review! This silly beauty addict nearly bought doubles… but then again, who is surprised? (especially since I already did that with another product). These are the Blush Cushion compacts that I’ve been eying since their release. I have a few blush cushions at home but, to be honest, I don’t use them very often. I often find that they’re too sheer on my skin tone and difficult to build.

However, these had me pleasantly surprised! These are selling on StyleKorean for USD$17.48 – a pretty good price – but they only have limited stock and colours so get in quick. It’s been a while since these cushions were released, so I imagine that they are saving inventory for more recent releases too (which I will be sure to check out).

So, let’s get right into the review. Click on to read my thoughts and experiences with this product.

Review: Sweety Colorful Rio Pink

Uniqso Kbeauty Lens Review

I’ve been sitting back on the circle lens reviews lately – mostly because I’ve been working so much that I don’t have the chance to really wear them (since I’m always in front of the computer) but I did get in contact with Uniqso again and this month, I’m going to be featuring and reviewing this pair of super colourful lenses that caught my eye on their website.

Since I last reviewed their products, they have revamped their website – and I really like the new design. I think it’s a lot easier to navigate and, as always, searching for things on their page is really easy. There is also now a feature to auto-convert the prices to different currencies – including Australian! I love that but, for the sake of my readers and conversions, I’ll use USD here.

They also feature reviews on their own page so you can read genuine comments from other people. Aside from coloured lenses, they also sell cosplay costumes and wigs, as well as some cosmetics. Overall, Uniqso mostly sells costume products and so they have a lot of really interesting designs that are pretty hard to find on other sites.

Today, I’m going to be reviewing the Sweety Colorful Rio Pink – these are meant to be a pair of pink lenses but, and you can see this on the website too, they are more rainbow coloured. It has a pink and purple side rim, accented with some yellow and a green inner rim. It really is the first time that I’ve seen something so beautiful!

Review: Fixing Tint (AprilSkin)

Oh My Stellar Kbeauty Review AprilSkin Fixing Tint Early Picker Review

I actually thought that I had this review already written quite a while ago but it was only looking back in my drafts that I realised I hadn’t! If you think back a few months, Earlypicker had sent me a big package of products for review – most of these consisted of AprilSkin and Medicube. Although I had reviewed some of the main products, I seemed to have forgotten about this one! This is the Fixing Tint from AprilSkin and, contrary to the product name, it is more of a super matte lipstick than a tint.

This is one of the most long wearing lipsticks that I have ever worn on my life! It survived some of my most greasy eating dates – which included fries, fried chicken and frozen coke – and wore throughout the day without any transfer or smearing. As soon as I wore it, I had my friends asking me about the product and wanting to get one themselves.

However, it isn’t without it’s negatives and I certainly have mixed feelings about this product now that I’ve tried it out more. So, without further ado, lets move onto the review!
