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!
I have heard so much about the April Skin cushions. They are a small South Korean brand and were relatively unknown until this product, which was raved about for it’s super high coverage, which went viral and also sold out in many places. From what I’m told, they are still rather small in South Korea, where the market is still dominated by big name brands like Innisfree, Nature Republic, Laneige and IOPE, but they definitely have a great international following. They have been reviewed a lot by asian beauty bloggers and youtubers alike, so I am relatively late coming onto this but… let’s go!
I personally love reviewing cushions and BB creams. I love how they look sitting with my make up because they’re all so different and make for very ‘collectable’ products. I also have very specific things that I look for in a cushion – buildable or high coverage, a dewy finish (which is why I personally steer away from matte finishes which simply don’t suit me) and how it sits on my skin. I’ll be keeping these attributes in mind while writing this review.
This product was sent to me for review by StyleKorean so if you’re interested in checking out their store, just click on their name to go to their home page.
Hi everyone! I’m here today to introduce (and give you my thoughts) on my new collaborator –StyleKorean. They are a Korea based online store that specialises in kbeauty and had actually contacted me about sending some things over for me to review. I’m so thankful for the opportunity and great support that they’ve given me! I’ve been posting on this blog steadily and trying to improve my content, so it’s always really great to find people who enjoy what I post – especially when they also share my passion for bringing great asian beauty products to a wider international audience.
StyleKorean has been operating since 2012 and, since 2015, have international warehouses in both Korea and Hong Kong as well them offices in Hong Kong, China, USA and Korea. They are extremely professional and you can read more about them on their website.
Looking through their store, I am absolutely taken aback by their clean and user friendly web design, which is often a weakness of kbeauty stores. The website is very easily to navigate and they also stock a wide range of brands and products – including some that are less common on other websites: 3CE, Memebox and Son & Park being some of that I am most excited about.
