We are at my final post for the VT Cosmetics reviews! I hope that you have been enjoying these so far and that they have been informative for you in choosing what to buy or to skip out on. In general, I have found the brand to be a bit of a hit-or-miss so I would definitely be looking into reviews for anything I buy from them.

For the last post here, I want to be sharing two more cosmetic products from them and – once again, and quite predictably – there was one that I liked and another that I will not be using again. First off is the Super Tempting Lip Rouge, which I have in two shades with two different finishes, and then there is the Gloria Powerdation which is a matte finish liquid foundation.

All of these products, as well as even more from the VT Cosmetics line and other brands are available at BB Cosmetic, and that you can also use my code for a little 5% discount – QAL3F6ZA8YZ – it isn’t much but personally, I never say no to saving money.

So, let’s get right into this review!

Sit yourself down and take a (comfy) seat because this is going to be a long post! I was originally planning on write this as two seperate posts but, after trying out both of these products from VT Cosmetics found that my thoughts on the two products are so different – because I love one of them so much that it’s my new HG, and then dislike the other one so much that I don’t think I will be finishing it up at all.

If you read my Part I post, you will note that I found products from this brand to be very hit-or-miss, so today I want to share with you a product that I would recommend you rush to buy and another one that really doesn’t live up to expectations.

I received the Super Tempting Face Fixer and the Born Natural Gel Mist from BB Cosmetic to review for you – and obviously, everything that I write is 100% honest. If you’d like to get these products or want to check out more from the VT Cosmetics line, then check out their website!

Review: Super Tempting Highlight & Shade Palette (VT Cosmetics – Part I)

VT Cosmetics BTS Kbeauty Review BB Cosmetics

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that there is an affiliate code advertised. The small profits go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

Following this post, there’s actually going to be a handful of VT Cosmetics products. They are a brand that I had heard a lot about in the past even before they started collaborating with BTS. For me, although I am a kpop fan, I am not a BTS fan, so my review of these are completely unbiased and I’ll only be discussing the actual products.

That all being said, I have had mixed experiences with VT Cosmetics – some products which I thought were pretty good, while others I didn’t like so much. These two, the Super Tempting Highlight Palette and the Super Tempting Shade Palette, fall a bit little in between (which I will go into below).

I received these, and all of the other VT Cosmetic products too, from BB Cosmetic who were super generous and sent me over so many things from the range to try out! Jump on over to their website if you want to get these ‘super tempting’ palettes – or anything else from the brand.

But, before you do that, lets get into this review!

Review: Cellus Skincare Range (Lagom)

Lagom Kbeauty BB Cosmetics Review

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that there is an affiliate code advertised. The small profits go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

When BB Cosmetic approached me to collaborate again, I asked them about any new brands that they might be bringing in and wanting me to try out. They were quick to recommend Lagom, which is actually a very new name to me – in fact, I hadn’t even heard about them before this. They are a relatively new addition to the BB Cosmetic offerings and, from what I can see, are an indie kbeauty brand that focuses a lot on whitening/brightening skincare products – which are totally down my alley.

The brand was launched by Kowon, a very experienced celebrity make up artist from Korea. Although her expertise is in cosmetics, her work in the industry made her realise that the most important thing is to have healthy, hydrated and radiant skin. She worked together with a team of scientists to formulate this brand. All of Lagom products are formulated with their hero ingredient, DermaFlux, which is clinically proven to delivery hydration deep into the skin cells (rather than just the outmost skin barrier).

For me to test out of some their range, BB Cosmetic was generous enough to send through a selection of products (which I felt would work best in my routine) for me to try out and I have to say that I’ve been loving these products! They’re effective but simple to use, and I have essentially replaced a chunk of my routine with Lagom. My skin is absolutely loving it, so let me talk to you about all of these products!

In this review, I’ll be talking about the Cellus Mist Toner, Cellus Mild Moisture Cream and the Cellus White Moisture Cream. I’ve been using all three of these products daily so I’ll go in depth into the product, my experiences and my personal recommendations for when I work this into your routine.

Review: Ion Calcium Foundation Double Cushion (MiBA)

MiBa Ion Calcium Foundation Double Cushion BB Cosmetics Review

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that there is an affiliate code advertised. The small profits go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

I honestly think that oversized foundation cushions is going to be a trend this year and, to be honest, I don’t hate it! Generally, they’re the same as your regular cushion but, because of the larger size, give you a faster application, a bigger mirror and – obviously – more product. They are more difficult to carry around though, so they’re larger than any of my compacts, so I keep it in my handbag rather than my make up bag.

Recently, I collaborated with BB Cosmetics again and, when I was looking through their website, came across the MiBA Ion Calcium Foundation Double Cushion. I had actually seen this product on Instagram previously (shout out to my babe @mabub.sonyeo) and it caught my eye mostly because of the pretty packaging. I’m a total sucker for illustrations and I loved this more traditional manga style! I had never heard of the brand before but I really wanted to try this out – and I don’t regret it. In fact, this cushion actually impressed me a lot more than I thought it would!

If you want to get this, check out BB Cosmetic. This cushion is selling for USD$28.98) – and they also offer free shipping worldwide with no minimum purchase. You can also use my affiliate code for 5% off: QAL3F6ZA8YZ

But, before you skitter off for that, let’s get into this review!

Review: Hydrogel Very Simple Pack (Cosrx)

COSRX Hydrogel Very Simple Pack BB Cosmetics Review

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that there is an affiliate code advertised. The small profits go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

I personally love hydrogel masks but the problem is that they tend to be a lot more expensive than a standard sheet mask so I can only save them for special occasions. However, when I came across this product I knew that COSRX has found that gap in our market and found a perfect way to fill it – this is the Hydrogel Very Simple Pack. It comes in a tub of 60, which makes it a much more affordable option in comparison to individual masks.

COSRX is a very popular kbeauty brand, though I find that most of their hype is within the actual beauty community (they don’t have any stand alone stores in Korea but rather sell inside of Watsons – the drug store). They are very well known for their acne care products, in particular their acne pads, patches and pore clearing toner. I have used a handful of their products in the past and enjoyed them but hadn’t been fully blown away yet. However, this is fast becoming a recent favourite of mine!

I also believe that this was developed in collaboration with kbeauty blogger Hanbyul but there isn’t too much information about this (I used to be an avid watcher of her videos but not so much anymore, so I’m not up to date).

I recieved this from BB Cosmetic to review and this tub is selling for USD$17.65 (discounted from USD$26) – and they also offer free shipping worldwide with no minimum purchase. Check out their website if you’re keen to get this. You can also use my affiliate code for 5% off: QAL3F6ZA8YZ

Review: Bon Cleansing Foam (Sooryehan)

Sooryehan Bon Cleansing Foam BB Cosmetic Kbeauty Review

Korean skincare is most well known for their high quality ingredients, especially when it comes to more traditional products such as fermented rice, ginseng and herbs. They are generally found in brands that are a little bit pricier and so I have only tried out a few of them. One of my favourite ingredients would have to be rice, since I’m a big fan of anything with brightening properties, but one that I have definitely stayed away from is Ginseng. Ginseng can be a very interesting ingredient and is one that my mother enjoys, but I’ve always disliked the scent of it and so I can’t bring myself to use it on my face.

How interesting is it then that I’m now testing out this new Sooryehan cleanser (this is the Bon Cleansing Foam) which contains ginseng extract and my favourite thing about it is the scent?! I received this to review from BB Cosmetic and it is currently selling on their website for USD$18 (discounted from USD$23.99). 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

It is rather expensive for a cleanser, to be honest, so let’s get right into my experiences with this product!

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!

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
