Review: Kangsi Pack (Elizavecca)

Elizavecca Kbeauty Review Kangsi Pack EGF Retinol Cream Masks

I am finally writing this review! I’ve started a lot of posts and have had to stop lately because I’ve been so inundated with work and it’s really stressing me out mentally and physically. I’m working five days a week, which is pretty standard for most people, but trying to also add in blogging, daily social media updates (which is, yes, a necessity), as well as photoshoots and trying to get back into music… it can really drain a girl down. That being said, I do have a lot of content planned and the photography is done to be shared and posted – so hopefully I can keep the ball rolling.

I’m going to try and keep my posts a little more concise starting from now – especially the reviews. This is mostly because i’m not convinced that people like to read about me rambling on and because short points are probably easier to help people draw their conclusions. Please let me know in the comments below if you prefer shorter, more frequent posts or more lengthy, less frequent posts?

And back on track! Today, I’ll be giving you my thoughts on the Kangsi Pack from Elizavecca. They recently sent me a second package of different masks and goodies to test out for you guys and, so far, I’m really happy with their products. You can read my glowing review of their retinol cream here (no pun intended) and I have a few more sheet masks to review as well. The below product is one of their really popular wash off mask packs, which contains 24K gold and looks like a glittering dream. That is, until it dries.

Review: ColorRulez Tint & Gloss (16Brand)

16Brand Chosungah22 Colorrulez Lipgloss Stylekorean Review

I first saw this lip tint/gloss from 16Brand on Instagram (shout out to my friend mabub.sonyeo for sending me a photo of her one and showing me how the colour mixed), and I was ridiculously keen to get my hands on it. I’ve always been a fan of 16Brand products because of their super cute packaging and concepts, although the formulations of their fingerpens turned out to be a hit or miss for me. Either way, I was really keen to try out this lip product because of the packaging (lets not lie) and the fact that the swatches really do look great online!

These lip tints are layers with three different colours to create a beautiful colour on your lips that you can (hypothetically) darken by redipping into the top layer and reapplying – though this seems a little excess. This tint gloss also contains hydrolyzed collagen which, to be honest, I’m not sure if it makes a cosmetic difference but it’s good to know.

StyleKorean sent me a few of these lip tint glosses to try out and I’ve been testing them out for a while – finally ready to write about it! Read on for my thoughts!

Review: SSIN Stealer (Unpretty Rapstar)

Ssin Stealer SSSINIM and Unpretty Rapstar Cosmetics Review

SSIN is one of my favourite Youtubers, seriously, and so when she released her first collaboration with Unpretty Rapstar, I was ridiculously excited but it was difficult to get my hands on the products because I don’t live in Korea and the brand was still relatively new at the time (I think so, anyway). I wanted to buy it while I was in Korea but I ended up leaving without it… and in retrospect, I sort of wonder why I did so. Since then though, I’ve been fawning over it online and it’s taken me so long but I finally got my hands on it. BB Cosmetic recently sent me multiple products from this entire line to write about. Regrettably, these products are now being discontinued and SSIN has moved onto her second collaboration (and this time, it’s with Too Cool For School) but I enjoyed these products so much that I wanted to write about them anyway. If they are an example of the sort of products we can expect from Unpretty Rapstar, I’ll be looking to trying out more things from their brand too. In Korea, they are sold at a fashion store called Wonderplace but, for those who are internationally based like myself, you can find these products at BB Cosmetic.

At the time of writing this, these products are still available on the website but only in extremely limited quantities, so get in fast if you’re wanting to get them. BB Cosmetic does free shipping for all orders (no order limit) and you can also get 8% off with my blogger’s code: QAL3F6ZA8YZ. They also have a great range of other things that you can check out too.

Haul: Early Picker (AprilSkin & Samples Galore!)

Earlypicker AprilSkin Turn Up Color Treatment Kbeauty Haul Review

I’m back with the second part of my Early Picker haul! Finally. Actually, I received this package not long after I published my first one (and you’ve likely seen a post on my Instagram about this incredibly sample pouch that they have) but I’ve been spreading things out but trying to get super active with posting again. Now, with this post, the main thing that I really wanted to show everyone was their sample pouch (which you can see below) but I figured that I should touch briefly on these products that they sent me too!

These are the April Skin Turn Up Color Treatment; it is essentially like a temporary hair colour or toner, which adds a gloss to either prelightened (recommended) or natural hair. These are actually fairly common here in Australia, but I find that not many Korean brands actually have these sorts of colours – which is strange because I think a lot of people in Asia like to experiment with fashion trends! The main difference between this and the usual hair toner that I use is that it’s actually a treatment for you hair, so it leaves your locks feeling especially soft and healthy after use as well.

I currently have the orange colour in my hair and I’m waiting for it to wash out to test others – so I will be posting a review on that soon! Early Picker was wonderful enough to send me ten boxes of these; two of each colour variant, so I’ll be testing them all out and also experimenting with some colour mixing too!

Review: Metallist Liquid Foil & Glitter Shadow Duo (Touch in Sol)

Touch in Sol Metallist Liquid Foil and Glitter Shadow Duo BB Cosmetic Review Margaret Adelio Lottie

I first saw these shadow duos on Youtube and, being a bit fan of shimmer and glitter myself, I really wanted to try them. The one hesitation that I had, however, is that I haven’t had very good experiences with liquid eyeshadows in the past – those that I’ve tried have been difficult to blend, crease very easily and look really messy when applied (maybe I just don’t have that magic skill). When BB Cosmetic approached me about reviewing this though, I just couldn’t say no.

These eyeshadow duos come in five original colours –  Margaret (champagne), Eldora (gold), Talia (silver), Adelio (burgundy) and Lottie (plum). There are also an additional five colours, but I’m unsure if these were released later as I don’t see them around as much – Lala, Irina, Sonia, Trudy and Linda. These seem to be more colourful shades, while the originals are more wearable, metallic colours.

According to the website, “these dual eye shadows offers rich, metallic pigment with a foil finish in one swipe.” The metallic pigment is the liquid eyeshadow while, on the other side, you have your matching glitter pigment. I tested these out of a few different occasions and – seriously – I love them. I’m very tempted to buy the other shades as well.

Read on for the review and don’t forget to check out BB Cosmetic if you want to pick these up or anything else. You can use my code for 8% off (QAL3F6ZA8YZ) and enjoy free shipping on all orders! For an extra 10% cash back, you can also leave a SNS review.

Review: Red Recipe Lip Colour (3CE)

BB Cosmetic 3CE 3 Concept Eyes Stylenanda Red Recipe Lipstick Kbeauty Review

I was really hoping to post the video for this at the same time as this post but, with this sudden cough that’s struck me – and the lung that is no doubt threatening to be coughed up – I’m not sure if I’m particularly up for that one right now. However, it is definitely coming up and I will be updating this post once it is!

Launching right into the review, these are three of the new lipsticks from the 3CE Red Recipe collection. I was super excited when this new range come out because I’m a lover and a believer of the classic red lip. Their last Mood Recipe collection was also really popular but, truth be told, I’ve been getting quite tired of seeing browns everywhere and I was so glad for a change.

The 3CE Red Recipe collection comes with five lipsticks (in both matte and original finishes), two red blushes (which I am itching to get my hands on) and three nail polishes. For this review, I’ll be talking about three shades of the lipsticks: Moon, Fig and Ruby Tuesday. These are all bright but also very wearable shades with subtle differences, and all three of them can easily transition from work, date to evening make up.

I received these products to review from BB Cosmetic, so feel free to check out their website if you’re interested in these products. They stock all five shades of the lipsticks and both of the blushes. You can also get 8% off with my code (QAL3F6ZA8YZ), get 10% credit back by posting an SNS review and enjoy free shipping on all orders!

Review: Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Wine (Neogen)

Neogen Bio Peel Gauze Peeling Wine Review Kbeauty StyleKorean

I was so, so ridiculously excited to try out this peeling pad because it’s been so hyped and so many have given amazing reviews for it. It’s been everywhere on Youtube, Instagram, blogs… so I figured that it was about time for me to hop on board of this train too and see what the hype is about. I did have to choose between the yellow (lemon) and purple (wine) but I ended up going with this one, for the very superficial fact that it would have looked prettier in photos. I know, I’m not very scientific, am I?

Anyway, so this one is essentially an exfoliating pad and those who know me would know that i’m a big fan of exfoliation. I love how satisfying it feels and the baby smooth finish you end up. Generally, I would switch between chemical and mechanical exfoliators (such as peeling gels and sugar scrubs) but the amazing thing about this product is that it is both! It’s a quick and effective way of working exfoliation into your skin care routine without taking up a lot of time and making a mess in your bathroom.

This exact version that I selected in their wine variant, which its main ingredients in red wine and resveratrol (which is a anti-oxidant and a popular anti-aging product). This mains to leave you with smoother, firmer and brighter skin. Other people have also claimed it has improved their skin in the long run – maybe a few months of use – but I have only used this for a couple weeks so I’ll mainly be talking about the main, immediate effects.

Read on! 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.

Review: Hell Pore Water Up Peptide EGF Mist One Button (Elizavecca)

Elizavecca Hell Pore Water Up Petide EGF Mist One Button Review Kbeauty

So, with that sappy 100th post post out of the way, I’m happy to be able to launch right into my next review. This one I’ve actually seen testing for a really long time because I wanted to test it under different conditions and situations too, so this is going to be a well considered post. I also filmed a video for this (which you can find at the end). This is a face mist that is also a spray on mask pack – which is a pretty interesting concept, in my opinion. Those who know me well would know that I carry a small bottle of mist around with me daily: I use it to touch up my make up, to rehydrate my face and also to wake me up when I’ve already gone over my daily caffeine allowance.

The following product is called the Hell Pore Water Up Peptide EGF Mist One Button, which is a serious mouthful so I’ll call it the One Button Mist from here on. This was sent to me for review purposes from Elizavecca and it’s from their Hell Pore line – you know, that apparently super painful mask that I… actually didn’t find that painful? I actually really liked that mask though, so I was interested to see what this product could do for me.

I used this spray during the day on top of my make up, as well as on days when I wasn’t wearing any make up. Although the weather is very hot here, I have also had some trouble with dry lips (which does come into play). Interested to read about this? Click on!

Review: Milk Moist Pact – Pink (Peripera)

StyleKorean Peripera Milk Cushion Pink Kbeauty Review

To be honest, I’ve been putting off writing thing review for maybe a week now. Even though I had formed my opinion on the foundation pact, I wanted to badly to like this that I gave it chance after chance but, unfortunately, this product just isn’t suited for me right this moment. I’m sure that other people will like it though so, rather than just saying “I don’t like it”, I’ll be giving you some more details opinions and observations below so you can make your own judgement on whether this is the correct formula for you.

So I originally wanted to try out this product for two reasons: first, it reminded me a lot of my LUNA essence water pact, which is up there as one of my favourites of all time and, secondly, I’ve always had a great experience with CLIO and Peripera products so I expected this to be just as wonderful. Instead, I was pretty disappointed.

Read on for my review! This product was sent to me by StyleKorean and, if this suits your needs, you can definitely buy it off their site. Otherwise, they have a great range of other cushions and foundations too! I was not paid for this post but please note that affiliate links are used on my blog. These cost you no money to use but go towards supporting Oh My Stellar.
