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 (By 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!

Product Launch: Green Tea & Enzyme Powder Wash (By Wishtrend)

By Wishtrend Green Tea and Enzyme Powder Wash Wishtrend 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.

It’s my first post coming back from my trip to Vietnam and Seoul and, to be honest, I’m writing this at around 3am and I’m still getting over my fatigue and jetlag (which has been knocking out to sleep as soon as I get home from work). However, since Wishtrend just officially launched this product today (congratulations!) I knew that I wanted to have this post done on time, especially since I really love this product.

So I posted about this on Instagram before I went on my trip because I was contemplated whether or not to bring a new product abroad (because I was worried about allergies) but I did bring it and boy, I’m so glad that I did because this product is super travel friendly, very hydrating (which is important when you’re dealing with weather variations and long flights) and is pretty effective too.

This is a Green Tea & Enzyme Powder Wash that is from By Wishtrend, a brand started by the online kbeauty store – Wishtrend. My general experience with their products has been really good! I find that their formulas are effective, well priced and gentle on skin too. In fact, their Mandelic Acid Water is still one of my go-to, favourite skincare products at the moment!

This product has an amazing green tea latte scent (which is the best I have ever encountered) and gently exfoliates your skin which cleansing. It has a hydrating finish and leaves your skin really soft and clean, as well as controlling blackheads.

This is a 70g bottle and retails at the full price of USD$22. However, as a special launch promotion, you can now buy it at a 20% off (USD$17.60) or save up at 30% on the special sets. This promotion ends soon, so if you’re interested, get on it!

Brand Spotlight: Smith & Cult

I had been eying some of these Smith & Cult products since I first saw them online – and now they’re finally stocked at Sephora and much more easily accessible, so I just had to write a post about them. This brand is founded by the same woman who did Hard Candy (Dineh Mohajer launched it in the 90s) so you know that they have plenty of experience and knowledge in all things nails and beauty. Similarly, Smith & Cult started out with their nail products first and have now branched out into cosmetics, and I really couldn’t be happier about the quality of their products!

These were sent to me as samples from PR, but I had actually contacted them myself about reviewing the brand because I was personally so impressed by the quality of what I had seen at Sephora! Of course, I did want to get more information about them as well, as I feel like they have been a bit under-represented outside of Instagram (where their unique nail polish bottles are a blogger’s haven), so it was really good to get an insight into their brand values and their range too.

So Smith & Cult is, according to the website, all about the duality of personalities – represented by bold, sharp colours and cosmetic looks. In a way, their concept is a bit similar to Urban Decay (another favourite of mine); feminine, edgy and unique. It’s easy to see why I’m such a fan, since they embody all of the values that I hold so dear to me. All of that said, today I’ll be discussing three products from their line and giving you my thoughts on them – The Tainted Lip StainedLash Dance Mascara and a selection of their Signature Nail Polishes.

Ready? Lets go!

Brand Spotlight: PACKage

Pack-age Float Mask Bundle BB Cosmetic Kbeauty Review

PACKage is a fairly new brand where it comes to Korean sheet masks (and masks in general), but they’re definitely getting some attention online – most famously for their ‘mask bundle’ which I will be reviewing for you today! When BB Cosmetic sent me some products to test out, they were also super generous and sent me some extras of the masks and I’m now trying to decide if I’ll be sharing them out to my family or saving them for a give away – or hoarding them because they’re super cute!

There isn’t a lot of information that I can find about this brand, so my introduction here will be short, but read on to see a box set of their masks – perfect for the skincare fanatic and gifting – as well as reviews on the individual products! The masks for available for purchase on BB Cosmetic and you can buy the separately (Everyday Bouncy Sheet MaskMelt Me Softly Blackhead Nose Strip Pack, or the Monthly New Feet Foot Peeling Liquid Mask) or in the box set, Float Mask Bundle Set Hapoom Collaboration, which includes 17 masks in total. 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
