Review: Dailism Waterdrop Tint (Heimish)

Heimish StyleKorean Review Kbeauty Dailism Waterdrop Tint

I love this lip tint. I honestly don’t even know how else to begin this review except for that. I’ve been carrying it in my bag almost religiously so I’ve been using it almost every day – it’s pretty much replaced the old (and now scratched) lip tint that I have from The Face Shop. I brought this to Korea with me, as I did the eyeshadow palette, and I have this one to thank for saving me every time my lips went dry – which was often.

This one is also from Heimish’s Dailism collection and is called their waterdrop tint – most likely a reference to the droplet shaped applicator. It is a lip stain and, in accordance to the Heimish brand, is meant to be easy to use, wearable and also distinctive. The formula is a bit creamy (like a gel) and is said to contain rose hip seed oil extract – keep lips soft and hydrated too.

Read on for my review! This, along with the other Heimish pretties that I’ve been reviewing, have been sent to me for review by StyleKorean and is available for USD$11.77 (full price is USD$13.08) so remember to check them out!

Review: D-Off Phyto Foam Cleanser (Petitfee)

Kbeauty Review RoseRoseShop Koelf Skincare Petitfee

This was a strange product to me and, honestly, I didn’t expect that it’d be strange because… it’s a foam cleanser. I really didn’t expect anything all that different but let me tell you that this one definitely baffled me for a while. This product is from Petitfee and is called the D-Off Phyto Foam Cleanser (which, to me, sort of sounds like it’s swearing but it means dust off), a cleanser made of natural mint leaf and seven herbal ingredients – the foaming aspect is also meant to be fermented nutrient rice foam. It’s purpose is to penetrate pores, cleanse and moisturise.

To be honest, the overall description of this product was quite confusing to me. Perhaps it’s because I don’t approach natural products in such a in depth manner usually, but I still went into testing this product with an open mind! When I basically took from the description is that the foam cleanser uses natural ingredients in order to both cleanse and hydrate your skin – sounds pretty good to me.

I was sent this to review by RoseRoseShop, where you can get a bottle for $4.16 USD (full price is $11.71). It’s a good price for a good sized bottle so, provided that it works, I think it’ll be great for those more conscious about the ingredients in the products they’re using. Read on for my full review!

Review: Beauty Moisturizer EX (VDL)

bb cosmetic review kbeauty korean makeup skincare vdl beauty moisturizer moisturiser ex

And so started my mini love affair with VDL. Prior to this, the only VDL product I had used was their shading liquid – this one hadn’t impressed me very much as both the colour and thin fluid didn’t allow me much control. However, I was contacted by BB Cosmetic recently and they sent me a sample of the Beauty Moisturizer. I gladly accepted, as I was really wanting to given VDL another chance and, goodness, I am glad I did.

I started testing this one before I left for Korea and actually made up my mind about it really quickly – it was very convincing. I actually purchased a bunch of other products from VDL while I was over there too, so there will be more reviews from this brand to come.

For now, read on for my thoughts on this product. You can pick yours up from BB Cosmetic, and don’t forget to use my code for 8% off your purchase: QAL3F6ZA8YZ

With that, it’s on with the review!

Review: Heating Gel Pore Brush (Tosowoong)

My Korean Makeup Kbeauty Review Tosowoong Heating Gel Pore Brush

Just to clarify, I had really high hopes for this product so even though I say that I’m kind of disappointed, it isn’t because it’s a terrible product. It works, just not how I wanted it to.

I had never used anything from Tosowoong before but had heard really great things about the brand so, when I came across this on My Korean Makeup, I decided that I had to try it. The product is a pore cleanser with a gel product and an attached brush, making usage fast and simple. I had actually searched it up online as well and hadn’t found any other reviews for it, so I was hoping that I would discover a new, wonderful product for you guys to use but… unfortunately, not.

Read on for my experience and thoughts about this Tosowoong product. I received this product to review from My Korean Makeup and you can check out their website to purchase this (or anything else).

Review: Dailism Eye Palette (Heimish)

Heimish StyleKorean Review Kbeauty Dailism Eye Palette Cozy Coral

I was originally going to do a haul post of the Heimish products that I recieved from StyleKorean to review, but because I ended up flying off to Seoul soon after, that post was never written and, instead, I ended up really testing out these products. I can put up the haul post if people want, but I was planning on using the same images anyway and I feel like it’s more important for me to talk in depth about the products.

Without further ado, here’s my review for the Heimish Dailism Eye Palette in Cozy Coral. This is actually the palette that I took with me to Korea and, aside from my new matte orange shadow, I used this almost exclusively and can officially state that I love it. I would definitely make this my go-to travel palette because I find the colours really versatile, buildable and the packaging light and sturdy.

Let’s go into a bit more detail.

Review: BCDation Plus (Tonymoly)

My Korean Makeup Kbeauty Review Tonymoly BCDation

Hi everyone! I really wanted to get one last review out before I head off to Seoul tomorrow morning, so I thought that this would be a good post to go with. It’s also very possible that I’ll write up some stuff before boarding my plane (as I’m wanting to schedule a few posts to go in between my travel posts too) so don’t think I’ll be silent for the next nineteen days! In fact, I’ll be extra talkative.

I proved myself wrong!

Hi all; it looks like I’m finally back from my Korea trip with a lot of photos and videos to share, new products to review and some others that I’ve been testing and need to catch up on. Without further ado, let’s roll right back into it with a new review!

This is Tonymoly’s BCDation Plus, a liquid base make up that combines BB/CC Cream with Foundation. This isn’t the first that I’ve heard of this formula, as I think Clio do something similar as well, but I was wanting to try this because my favourite Youtuber SINNIM has said some good things about this product. I was tossing between the cushion and the liquid version, but I chose to go with this bottle simply because I have been using a lot more cushions lately (when, funnily enough, I usually prefer bottled BB creams) and this one contains a lot more product than the standard cushion. It’s been said that there is little to no different between the two though.

I received this product to review from My Korean Makeup and you can check out their website to purchase this (or anything else).

Review: Callus Care Elbow Patch (Koelf)

Kbeauty Review RoseRoseShop Koelf Skincare

I’m back with another review (of course), and this time it’s another Koelf hydropatch – for your elbows. For a lot of us, we pay so much attention to moisturising our faces, legs and necks (especially our necks, okay) and more difficult to see spots tend to be neglected. Dry elbows don’t look very nice and nor do they feel great. Cracked skin can make sure a pretty painful experience, especially in an area that moves and rubs against other surfaces so often.

I have to admit that my own elbows are pretty neglected. They have been dry to the point of hurting before, which isn’t something to be that proud about. For that reason, I was looking forward to trying this out. I wanted something that could give my elbows a quick hydration that lasted even after the product wore off. It was also important for it to be easy to use and not affect my movement, as I do a lot of work at home.

If you’ve read my previous Koelf review, you will know that I also tested their heel patch. For this one, I’ll be using my own body instead of my mum’s (but thanks for helping me apply it, mum!) and giving you my thoughts on it. Like the previous, this product was also sent to me for review by RoseRoseShop so don’t forget to check them out too!

Review: Oops! Tint Cheek Cushion (Berrisom)

I love rosy cheeks. In fact, I’ve probably gotten even more obsessed with blushers lately – probably because fatigue and the cold has had my complexion looking rather dull. A hint of pink on your cheeks is perfect in the mornings to give you a lively, bright look. I’ve been testing different formulas from powders to creams, so I was pretty excited when these babies rocked up in my mailbox.

This is Berrisom’s Oops! Tint Cheek Cushion. You might know the brand for their peel off lip tints (which I’ve actually yet to try) but today I want to introduce another of their products to you. This is essentially a cream blusher with a built in sponge applicator so you can squeeze out the product, apply and blend. It’s meant to be super easy, making it appropriate for mornings and when you’re on the go. The formula is also supposed to be thin like an emulsion, allowing it to feel and act much like a tint.

The product comes in two colours and I was sent both to review by BB Cosmetic; an online store that I often recommend for small, spur of the moment shops because they have free shipping (and I also have a code that you can use for 8% off… at the end of this post).

And with that, it’s on with the review!

Review: Heartful Moisture Lipstick (Holika Holika)

My Korean Makeup Kbeauty Review Holika Holika Heartful Moisture Lipstick

Did anyone else used to dot their i’s and j’s love hearts? I don’t know what it is about people that are so obsessed with love and little hearts – they’re cute, yes, but I guess this is just an example of how ingrained a childhood of fairytales and princesses in towers can be. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with living in our fantasy lands, as I’m still extremely attached to my Disney stories as well, and there is a subtle way we can keep instilling that youthful dreaminess in our lives.

Today, let’s look at the loveliest lipstick I’ve ever seen! This is the Heartful Moisture Lipstick with the cute, witchy kbeauty brand Holika Holika. This product caught my eye right away with it’s cute packaging and design, so let’s take a closer look at this.

This was kindly sent to me for review by My Korean Makeup. I chose all of the products that I wanted to review and I am giving my 100% honest thoughts about the product. For my thoughts on their service and online store, check out my previous review.

Review: Snow Lotus White Tone Up Cream (Petitfee)

Kbeauty Review RoseRoseShop Koelf Skincare Petitfee

Hi everyone! Double post for today because these have been sitting in my drafts for the longest time and I’ve tested it for plenty long enough to give my thoughts. This product is the Snow Lotus White Tone Up Cream by Petitfee, a Korean brand that exists in partnership (or under) Koelf. This is meant to give an instant brightening effect though I’m not entirely sure of whether it is meant to have long-term melanin reduction effects like the other whitening cream that I use (Cloud9). This product is designed to be used anywhere on the body and is meant to be applied as the last step of your skincare regime.

I received this product to try out by RoseRoseShop and I was really interested to try out another whitening cream. For the past year or so, I have been using Cloud9 almost exclusively and, although it is proven to be effective, the main issue I have with it is that it’s quite drying on the skin – which is quite common for whitening products, but worse when it contains pigmentation (how the instant brightening happens). I’m hoping that this product is different in that sense.
