Moonshot Kbeauty Review Reve de Paris Collection StyleKorean

It’s been a short while since I last got myself stuck into a new Moonshot collection (and, to be honest, I have no doubt that they’ve slowed down a bit since the YG Entertainment controversies in Korea) but their new release caught my eye immediately. I actually got an email from StyleKorean about this, since they launched the collection simultaneously in Korea, and was basically obsessed.

With the initial launch, they released the rêve de Paris Collection in a limited edition set. This is what they sent over to me, which includes the palette, one of the lipsticks and a Moonshot branded tote bag. Whilst this is no longer available – because it sold out like hot cakes – the entire range is available individually on the StyleKorean website.

The rêve de Paris Eyeshadow Palette is selling for USD$33 and the Stick Extreme Pro lipsticks are selling for USD$22 each – but definitely get in before the ones you want are sold out. Before you hop onto the StyleKorean website though, let’s get into this review!

Review: Juicy Lasting and Velvet Tint (Rom&nd)

Rom&nd Romand Zero Velvet Tint Zero Juicy Lasting Tint Kbeauty Review Anne of Green Gables Collection

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.

With well over 200 lip products in my collection, you’d think that I’d be sick and tired right? Nope. When ever I see new lip products – whether it’s a liquid lipstick, lipgloss or a bullet lipstick – I feel like a literal pouncing kitten. Before my obsession with eye palettes, lips were my big weakness and it kind of still is.

At the moment, I have loving both matte and glossy formulas but mostly in a feathered out, ‘wearable’ look so a lot of kbeauty tints have been great for this! When I was checking out Rom&nd, I found out that they actually have two different tints in their Anne of Green Gables Collection – there is the Juicy Lasting Tint and the Velvet Tint. Since I’m terrible at making decisions, I naturally wanted to try them both out so I picked out two shades from each that I knew I would love. I wanted to give more attention to the finish and formula of the tint, rather than whether or not I liked the colour.

The Zero Velvet Tint (Anne of Green Gables Edition) and the Juicy Lasting Tint (Anne of Green Gables Edition) are both available on the StyleKorean website for USD$13 each – or you can also find it in the original packaging for USD$14.30 too, so don’t worry too much if you miss out on this collection.

Before you jump onto their website though, let’s get into this review!

Review: Centella Green Level Unscented Sun (Purito)

Purito Centella Green Level Unscented Sun Kbeauty Review

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid and affiliate links are not used in this post.

Purito is an indie k-beauty brand that is well known for their EWG green level ingredients (that is, proven skin safe ingredients) and their simple but effective formulas. Their brand is all about investing in their products, not in gimmicks or fancy packaging, and it’s been so good watching them grow as more and more people learn of them. They are a brand that I trialed quite a while ago (see all of my past reviews here) and, while some formulas worked better for me than others, I’ve never tried anything from them that’s actually bad – in fact, I’ve always enjoyed Purito and I have a lot of confidence in them!

One of their popular products is their Centella Green Level Safe Sun but it was not suitable for all skin types because the original formula included essential oils. True to their brand values, of course, they have now launched their Centella Green Level Unscented Sun! Not only is this formula free of fragrances, it also has a higher percentage of Centella Asiatica, the perfect ingredient to soothe and calm sensitive skin.

I was so keen to try this one out that I broke into the bottle right away. I’m a religious SPF user (as everyone should be) but tend to be sensitive to some formulas – I have had body sunscreens make my entire body break out in hives before and certain formulas also clog my pores and make my skin super greasy. This formula is so perfect though and, even while I’m working on this review, I’m not ready to let my bottle go.

The Centella Green Level Unscented Sun is available on the Purito website for USD$18.90 but, before you jump on there, let’s get into this review!

New Release: AKOCO and their Flawless Sets

Akoco Kbeauty Flawless Set Review

This product was sent to me 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.

The kbeauty industry is massive and it seems like every day that a new innovation in skincare is being launched, so it can be really hard to keep up. The great thing is that there are experts out there and they have put their time and effort into curating only the best of the best for you. The relatively new online store AKOCO has just launched with their boxed sets and – seriously – they are so well done. At this point in time, they have also released a number of different sets to target different skin concerns but the original is the Flawless Set.

To celebrate their launch, they sent me their Flawless Set and you would have seen me posting about this on Instagram – I just love the products that they’ve included in here. I only just noticed that I hadn’t written up an unboxing though (and this post is a good three months late for which I am so sorry). I was originally holding out to try everything first but realised that that’s going to take much too long so I’ll be sharing with you this anyway!

Although the Flawless Set is now out of stock, they do have their new Flawless Flaw-less set in stock (which targets acne prone skin) or, of course, you can always shop their products individually.

So – let’s get into it!

Review: Pro Eye Palette – Simply Pink (CLIO)

CLIO Pro Eye Palette Simply Pink Kbeauty Review

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.

I feel like some really pretty eyeshadow palettes have been coming out of the kbeauty industry lately and that makes me so excited. Palettes are my weakness but I generally don’t use many Korean formulas because I find that many brands just aren’t pigmented or adventurous enough for my personal preferences. The recent trends are definitely leaning towards more colour and self expression though, perhaps even inspired by some of the Western beauty trends too – and I love it.

Maybe a month or so ago, I found a range of eyeshadow palettes that really caught my attention – the new Pro Eye Palette from CLIO. It seems to be a kbeauty dupe of the Huda Beauty Nude Palette, but actually comes in three colour stories – Simply Pink (which is the one I’ll be reviewing), Coral Talk and Brown Choux. CLIO is a brand famous for creating high coverage and long lasting make up products that are both artist quality and road shop priced. I’ve been a fan of their brand since I got my first liquid eyeliner from them and still use their stuff all the time.

After waiting a while for this to show up on my favourite kbeauty sites (previously, I had only seen it on the official Korean instagram), I found out that all three were being stocked at StyleKorean. I had a hard time choosing but I ended up getting the Simply Pink palette to test out, since this colour scheme seemed to fit my personal style best.

It is currently selling on StyleKorean for USD$35.20 so pop onto their website if you want to grab one (or three). But before you do that, let’s get into this review!

Review: Perfect Pimple Patch (Subi Beauty)

Subi Perfect Pimple Patch Kbeauty Review

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid and affiliate links are not used in this post.

It’s just my luck that the moment I’m getting ready to review pimple patches, my skin is actually flawless (for once in my life). For this reason, this is super delayed but I really wanted to try these out properly and give you a real review rather than just an overview of the product. This is the Perfect Pimple Patch from Subi Beauty, a hydrocolloid patch to help drain and heal break outs.

If you’re unfamiliar with Subi Beauty, that’s because they’re new! They call themselves “half Aussie, half Korean” – Australian owned but born in Korea. They aim to merge Korean skincare innovations with Australian minimalism to create simple and effective skincare.

Since they are a new brand, they currently only carry the Perfect Pimple Patch, but I have a feeling that we will be seeing a lot more from them soon! These are available for purchase on their website for USD$29.95 for a set of 3 packs (that’s 54 patches in total), along with free shipping on all orders.

Check them out here and let’s also get into this review!

Review: Filter Shot (16 Brand)

16 Brand Filter Shot Kbeauty Review

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.

My contour is the second most important step of my make up routine and I’m always on the look out for new products. The Filter Shot contour pact from 16 Brand is one that originally caught my eye on Instagram, but it took a little while until I found out it was available on StyleKorean’s website! I did go back and forth about this for a while, because I didn’t have a good experience with the Eye Magazine (their one swipe eye shadow product). A lot of these type of things don’t work for me because my face shape is a bit different to the ‘average’ Asian face – which is the target audience – but I figured that I had to give this a shot anyway!

So the Filter Shot is a one swipe contour pact. It comes in two shades but, essentially, one is for nose contour and one is for face contour – so it’s really just the one shade. I have the Contour Peach shade, which is for the nose. This, and the Shading Almond colour, are currently selling on StyleKorean for USD$17.60 – which isn’t too bad actually!

Check out their website if you want to grab it but, otherwise, let’s jump into this review.

Review: Real Vita C Serum & Powder Lemon (Neogen)

Neogen Real Vita C Powder Lemon and Serum Kbeauty Review Neogen

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid and affiliate links are not used in this post.

If you’re a lover of Vitamin C (like me) then this new collection from Neogen is definitely going to spark your fancy. I received this from them as PR and, I have to say, I have been waiting really eagerly for new skincare from their brand – I always have amazing experiences with Neogen and if anyone was going to be a nice Vitamin C serum, I knew they would.

I have been very concerned with pigmentation and unevenness of my skin lately so I have been testing this product out with dedication! Although I don’t think it had lightened up my pigmentation overall (so far, nothing has been successful) it has done my skin well overall!

I’ll be telling you more about my personal experiences in this review. From Neogen, I will be talking about their Real Vita C Serum and always their Real Vita C Powder Lemon (which might be the most unique and genius skincare product I have seen all year!)

Let’s get into it!

Review: AHA Honey & Propolis Peeling Liquid (Commleaf)

Style Story Kbeauty Review Commleaf AHA Honey & Propolis Peeling Liquid

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid and affiliate links are not used in this post.

I’ve been testing another Commleaf product and this time it’s their AHA Honey & Propolis Peeling Liquid, a chemical exfoliant that claims to dissolve dead skin cells and also improve the efficacy of your skincare. I left this one to last to test out because I do tend to use a lot of actives in my skincare and I wanted to make sure that the rest of my routine as fairly simple when I used this.

In general, my skin condition has been pretty good lately – all of those break outs I had before have died down (even during my time of the month), there’s a nice hydrated brightness to my complexion and it’s also been feeling pretty strong!

This is probably a good thing too because I was a genius and went into trying out this Peeling Liquid before reading the instructions… so instead of getting my skin used to the product by using it twice a week, I jumped head first into using it every night! Thankfully, my overall results have been pretty good.

I received this to review from StyleStory so jump onto their website if you want to grab a bottle too, or check out any of their Commleaf offerings – the AHA Honey & Propolis Peeling Liquid is currently selling for AUD$29.95 on their website with free shipping in Australia on all orders over AUD$80.

So, without any more rambling, let’s get into it!

Review: Good Morning Cream (The Vegan Glow)

Style Story Kbeauty Review Vegan Glow Good Morning Cream

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid and affiliate links are not used in this post.

Vegan and cruelty free beauty has been a massive movement in the western beauty industry but – to be honest – we are still a fair while away in the k-beauty world. Aside from animal testing still being legally required in some countries (i.e. China, who is a massive market for Asian beauty) there are also a lot of famous and more traditional ingredients that are animal derived. It’s difficult to change an industry that has built itself on that knowledge and expertise so, to be honest, I feel like it will be a long time yet for k-beauty to be dedicatedly cruelty free.

However, there have been a number of new indie k-beauty brands that have really dedicated themselves to leading this movement – and they have been exceptionally great! One brand that I recently had the chance to test out is The Vegan Glow! They are 100% vegan and cruelty free, as well as being strictly formulated with EWG green products to ensure safe formulations that are suitable for even sensitive skin types.

They are currently in stock at StyleStory and have two essential products – the Good Morning Cream and the Good Night Cream. For this review, I had the opportunity to test out their Good Morning Cream and I have to say that I am very happy with this product! It does everything that I need it to do and also works amazingly underneath make up too (which is my number one concern when it comes to my morning routine). This is currently retailing for AUD$39.95 on StyleStory so jump on!

Before you do that though, let’s get into this review!
