Review: Kill Cover Liquid Founwear Cushion Fall Pack (Clio Professional)

RoseRoseShop Haul Review Clio Professional Kbeauty Korean Cosmetics Makeup BB Cream Foundation Cushion Kill Cover

You guys have probably seen this cushion featured a number of times on my instagram and finally, I’m going to be doing a review! This is from my previous RoseRoseShop haul and is actually a product that I received incorrectly – they have since replaced and sent me the correct Ampoule Cushion to me. However, this doesn’t mean that I can’t test it out, of course.

The package come in a relatively large box and contained a refill and a primer (the pink bottle) in addition to the cushion and a sponge (one sponge, no extra). I was quite impressed with the packaging because it was very sturdy and it looked really classy, and I don’t expect much less from Clio, to be honest. It was the first time that I saw the refill in the form of a bottle though so, when it’s time for a refill, I’ll definitely let people know how I go with that.

Please note that, although I am linking back to RoseRoseShop, this is not a sponsored review and I bought this product with my own money as part of my previous massive (and a little bit irresponsible) haul.

Unboxing and Review: BB Cosmetic

BB Cosmetics Review Kbeauty Beauty Asian Korean Cosmetics Skincare

As a blogger, I feel like I am so lucky to be able to work with people who also love what I love – Asian beauty products and quality service. For this upcoming post, I have been sent a package from BB Cosmetic of some of their top selling products to review. While I will be leaving the real, in-depth information for the individual posts, this is going to be a review of my experience with BB Cosmetic in general (as well as showing you the goodies that I was sent).

I found BB Cosmetic through another blogger’s instagram posts and, after checking their website, was immediately drawn to the wide variety of brands that they carry. Of course, once again, they don’t have everything in every brand, but I find that they seem to carry a lot of trendier brands or even smaller brands that are not as easily accessible internationally (more expensive brands like VDL come to mind, as well as Laniege). When I emailed them, I spoke to Chloe who was very polite and helpful with great English skills too! After talking to her, I expressed my interest in products from 3CE, Too Cool For School and VDL – brands which I saw often in Korea but not so much now that I am back in Sydney.

I’m so excited because, after talking to them, Chloe said that they would be sending out these products for me to test!

So aside from these really exciting things that they’ve sent me, let’s talk about their website and services (the product reviews can come later).

Review: Air Cushion XP (IOPE)

IOPE Kbeauty Beauty BB Cushion Cream Compact Review Stella Oh My Stellar RoseRoseShop

I’m doing another review! I’m probably a bit more excited than I should have been. This is the IOPE air cushion pact that I bought from RoseRoseShop. I’ve been wanting to try this since seeing a friend of mine crazily bulk buy this for her and her sister back when we were living in Seoul. I hadn’t gotten around to it though, mostly because I’m very happy with my MISSHA bb cream and because this is (relatively) pricier than another brands. Since having a rather lacklustre experience with another bb cream cushion, I decided to finally test this one out.

From my friend’s advice, I bought the natural cover version, which is meant to give a medium, buildable coverage that is suitable for achieving a dewy look. The IOPE cushion is rated one of the best and is supposed to be really great for dry skin (as it applies quite moist). The cover version, which may be preferred by those who are more prone to acne or have scarring, is said to have a more matte finish which is what I didn’t like about my previous THEFACESHOP cushion.

Beauty Haul: iBuyBeauti

Oh My Stellar KBeauty Asian Korean Beauty Haul IBBI iBuyBeauti

Oh my goodness, guys. Look at this – I’m at it again. I keep telling myself that I should really space out my haul posts (because I even have three videos filmed to go on YouTube) but I really didn’t want to hold back on this. You see, the longer I don’t post about it, the longer I have to stop myself from using this stuff… and that’s really hard.

Today’s haul is a little smaller than the previous but still substantial. This is part of my Kbeauty Haul and is from iBuyBeauti, usually called IBBI. The store was recommended to me by Sophia who had ordered from them quite a few times before. The best thing, of course, is that they have free shipping for purchases over $50 and, honestly… it’s really easy to buy more than fifty bucks, haha!

Their prices are a little bit higher than RRS to accommodate for the free shipping, but they’re the best option if you’re looking to buy only a few things (around $50 – $100 in total) or if you’re buying even less than $50 and want to team up with your friends to do a bulk order.

Now, let’s have a look at what I bought! I’ll put down the names but won’t do a review of (most) things because I’ll save that for individual posts later on.

Trend Report: Off Shoulders

stylenanda floral off shoulder long sleeve blouse black trend alert kfashion

The off-shoulder top isn’t exactly a new trend. In fact, I remember being absolutely obsessed with them back in primary school (or maybe it was early high school) when Tammin Sursok used to wear them a lot. In fact, I distinctly recall reading an interview with her back in the days where she commented that ‘less isn’t more’ and that jeans and an off-shoulder top could be incredibly sexy. And I agreed. I wanted to be pretty and sexy just like Tammin.

As a side note, I know that she’s well known as being Jenna from Pretty Little Liars, but before all of that fame, she was a massive name in Australian television. She was a singer as well, did you know? I highly doubt I was the only girl who looked up to her.

Anyway, back to the topic at hand – off-shoulder tops.

Beauty Haul: RoseRoseShop

Massive KBeauty Haul RoseRoseShop by Stella of Oh My Stellar

This post (and video) took so much longer to post that I intended. Originally, I had recorded the sound separately and was thinking of doing more work on the post-production side of it but… it was taking so long that I decided to scrap that idea for now. Instead, I was just really excited to show and share with everyone what I bought from RoseRoseShop and to talk about my experiences.

I will be gradually doing my reviews of (most of) the items, but instead let’s talk about my experience with RoseRoseShop (or RRS).

Introducing: OkCat Milk Face Cream

OkCat Costagram Skin Care Kbeauty

So I recieved an email today from ktown4u about a new product that they had brought in. Of course, of all things, I didn’t expect it to be OkCat skincare! It seems to be a milk based face cream with promises of hydration and a brightening effect – and packaging that is very reminiscent of 3CE’s of a similar name.

This one is a collaboration between 2PM’s Ok Taecyeon (the brilliant artist behind this kitty) and company called Costro. The brand is under Costagram which is targeted to a younger audience, specifically kpop fans. Have a look below and tell me what you think.

Review: Rosy Tint Lips (Etude House)

Etude House Rosy Tint Lips Review by Stella at Oh My Stellar K Beauty Kbeauty Blog

When I made my last massive purchase at RoseRoseShop (haul video to come soon) I couldn’t stop myself from picking up Rosy Tint Lips from Etude House’s &Rose Collection. I use quite a few different Etude House products, partly because I’m an absolute sucker for their pink princess paradise style packaging and that they’re very affordable, which makes it easy for me to try new things without the guilty smack to my wallet.

These lip tints looked so cute and I loved the creamy texture that was promised from the product photos. As I had trouble picking what colours I wanted (which happens all the time – Sophia realised that it’s reflected in the way that I shop. I can never choose between colours so I just grab everything and decide later on, which I think is a bit like sweeping the issue under the rug), I got three!

Blindfolded Make Up Challenge (feat Sophia)

No Mirror Makeup Challenge

I’m the type of person who doesn’t have as many friends as people sometimes think I do. In fact, I can somewhat consider myself an extroverted introvert. It takes me a long time to really be comfortable around someone and, oftentimes, I prefer to spend my weekends alone.

Last weekend though, as people saw from my #ootd post, I spent the weekend with my friend Sophia! We had taken some photos together, ate good food and did some online shopping (there is a massive make up haul coming your way) but we also spent a night filming something fun for my Youtube channel.

I’m personally a little appalled at the mess I look and came to the realisation that I sound (and look) very strange on video. However, the entire thing is so much fun that I can’t help but share it. Here it is everyone! I hope you enjoy.

Stay warm xx

Burnt Embers Winter OOTD

Winter Outfit by Stella from Oh My Stellar with ulzzang inspired make up

Last weekend, a close friend of mine stayed over so we could take some photos for our blogs. I’m absolutely hopeless in front of a camera and have a lot more confidence behind the lens, but I thought that I had to start somewhere. Rather than having so many nerves having a stranger photograph me, I thought that there was nothing better than having one of my closest friends capture me the way that she saw me!

It took a lot of tries to get the right photos but I’m quite proud of how natural some of these turned out (especially since I was feeling anything but). This is the dress that I bought for my graduation though – casual and classy – and this cardigan is worn so often that I wonder if I’ll ever find another! The beanie never used to match my hair but, funnily enough, does now.
