Romand x Neonmoon Kbeauty Makeup Review StyleKorean

If you follow me on Instagram, then this is not a surprise to you – I am obsessed with the Rom&ntic Moonight collection! This is a collaboration between Rom&nd (who I have reviewed before) and a Korean brand called NEONMOON – they are primarily a retro inspired fashion brand and I love them! They are actually a big inspiration for my online store too (so you can see how I love them). Their brand is about a fun, nostalgic aesthetic and bright colours – perfectly reflected in these products.

I don’t have everything from this collection (because it would be insane if I did) but I’ve got almost everything – and I need to share my thoughts with you! I am so happy with this collection: from the packaging to the formulas.. it’s brilliant. Today I’ll be showing you the Zero Cushion, Better Than Eyes Quad, Better Than Cheek Blushes and the Glasting Water Tint. The only product that I’m missing is the Glasting Water Gloss – but it’s available if you want to get it!

This whole collection is available at StyleKorean with prices ranging from USD$11.20 – USD$20.80. This collection is limited edition so check out their website to get your hands on this quick (you won’t regret it).

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

First Impressions: K-Beauty Haul (Stylevana)

Stylevana KBeauty Review Jigott Real Ampoule Mask, Frudia Blueberry Hydration Mask, Labiotte Wine Lip Tint, Logically Skin Aquatide Resurface Serum, Chica Y Chico One Shot Eye Palette

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.

New products and deliveries are always so exciting for me – so yes, I was super keen when this package from Stylevana arrived. I was starting to feel overwhelmed for a while but since pulling back on my spending and on some PR in the past few months, it’s given me more of a chance to enjoy what I do (and work at my own pace).

This haul is a new collaboration for me! Stylevana is an online store that specialises in Asian beauty – they carry products from Korea, Japan and even Taiwan. The latter two are less talked about because they’re harder to access online, so I’m glad that there’s a new source for them! Aside from the big range of products, Stylevana also offers free shipping for orders over USD$55.

From now until the end of November, you can also get 10-15% off your order with my code INF10STELLAR (excluding weekend deals and instant offers since they are already on sale).

So, read on if you’re keen to see what I received! I’ll be putting my initial thoughts into this post rather that full on reviews (especially for the Logically, Skin Serum) since I think that I’ll need to use that much more extensively to give proper insight. Here goes!

Review: Tonight Goodnight Kit (Missha)

Missha Tonight Goodnight Kit 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.

To be very honest, pretty packaging sucks me in every time and this Missha Tonight Goodnight Kit caught my eye for that exact reason – with an absolutely stunning purple design, it’s even cuter in this set pack. Of course, it’s even better now that I’ve tested it out and can confidently say that these are brilliant products! If you’re looking for a present, this is it.

In this review, I’ll be giving you some general information on the kit as well as a detailed on each product. You can buy them in this set, which is available on StyleKorean, for USD$30 (discounted from USD$60).

Alternatively, you can also pick up the products by themselves – there is the Tonight Brilliance Boosting Essence, Tonight Brilliance Oil in Cream and also the Tonight Brilliance Lip Balm. The lip balm isn’t included in this kit so I haven’t been able to try it out – but it’s heck cute!

Check these out at StyleKorean but, before you do, let’s get into this review!

Brand Spotlight & Review: Blithe

Blithe StyleKorean Try me Review Me Kbeauty Skincare

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.

It’s been a hot minute since I tried something new from Blithe, but I had such a great experience with their Energy Citrus and Honey Patting Splash Mask that when the opportunity came up – I had to take it. The products in this brand spotlight/review post were sent to me by StyleKorean as part of their Try Me Review Me program – this is a monthly open collaboration where they select a generous handful of beauty content creators to test out specifically curated beauty boxes.

If you’d like to join in next time, make sure to follow their Instagram because that’s where it all gets announced! For now though, let’s chat about what’s in this box.

This is the Blithe Try Me Review Me box and features four of their most popular (and unique) products: there is the Patting Splash Mask in Soothing & Healing Green Tea, Pressed Serum in Tundra Chaga, Inbetween Makeup Prep Essence and the Vital Treatment 8 Nourishing Beans. All of these are actually new to me (though I have used a different Splash mask before) so I think that I’ll need much more extensive testing to write a full review! However, I do want to share my initial thoughts and observations.

If you’d like to pick up any of these, or check out the Blithe line in general, head on over to the StyleKorean website – they’ve got an extensive range! Otherwise, let’s just right into this!

Review: Prism Air Palette (CLIO)

CLIO Prism Air Eyeshadow Palette Kbeauty Review StyleKorean

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 am totally weak for eyeshadow palettes and pretty packaging, so what am I supposed to do when the two of those come together? Obsess and get my hands on it, of course!

This is the Prism Air Palette from CLIO, and it has been all over the kbeauty community since its release. Their brand concept is to bring make up artist quality products to a street shop price point, so it’s all about high pigmentation, longevity and cool-girl packaging. Also, Peripera is their sister brand and they arguably do the best Korean lip tints ever – so that’s ’nuff said.

This palette is currently available at StyleKorean for USD$27.30 (on sale from USD$45.60) and also comes in two colour variants – Coral Sparkle and Pink Addict. I’ll be reviewing the Pink variant but definitely check out their website if you’d like to see any other offerings from CLIO.

So, let’s jump into this review!

Review: Layering Lip Bar in Stubborn Rose (Laneige)

Laneige Layering Lip Bar Stubborn Rose Kbeauty Review StyleKorean

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.

It’s no secret that I’m a massive fan of Laneige, and I’ve been pretty dedicated in trying out all of their lip bar range – from the original, matte to tint, I’m literally tried them all. Along with their cushion (which is still one of my top favourites to this day) their lip bar was my introduction to the brand; this is back when the original was still selling out at a lot of stores.

Since then, they have released a number of additional formulas with this same gradient concept and – in my opinion – these are far superior to the original (which had always been a bit patchy for me). This new Layering Lip Bar has an updated layering design for more consistent application and comes in both Cream and Matte formulas spread over 20 shades.

I received this product to review and definitely want to get a few more shades – especially to try out the matte formula too! It’s currently selling for USD$25.20 (on sale from USD$36) from the StyleKorean website – they actually stock quite a lot of Laniege top products, so I would recommend checking out the range in general.

If you’re keen on this lip bar, or want to know how it compares with the others, read on for this review!

New Release: Fig Collection (I’m From)

I'm From Fig Boosting Essence Cleansing Balm and Scrub Mask Review

When it comes to skincare, using fruit as the key ingredient isn’t anything new – especially within kbeauty. Sometimes it’s more to do with the scent but, most of the time, it has a lot to do with that fruits’ natural chemicals and benefits. A great example, and the most well known, would be with citrus and Vitamin C. In the end, all fruits are different and you can find a plethora of different skin concerns that can be treated with these formulations.

This new release from I’m From uses Fig, which I’ve never actually eaten before let alone seen in skincare. Because of this, I went into testing without any specific expectations but I was pleasantly surprised! The collection includes the Fig Boosting Essence, Fig Cleansing Balm and the Fig Scrub Mask. It’s available on the Wishtrend website with prices ranging from USD$30-$35.

Since these are a new release, I’ve only used them for about a week or two so the below are mostly my initial thoughts on the products. However, I definitely have my favourites already! At the moment, this range is on sale for an introductory 10% off (limited time only), as well as my code for a special discount: STELLA15 (until May 31st CST)

If you’d like to pick up any of these or explore the I’m From brand, hop on over to the Wishtrend website. Before that though – lets check out the new Fig Collection!

Review: Madagascar Centella Range (Skin1004)

Skin1004 Madagascar Centella Toning Toner and Ampoule BB Cosmetic Kbeauty 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.

There are a few ingredients that I consider ‘magic’ for my skin, and Centella Asiatica is one I rave about all the time. It’s often used in products that target acne as it has both healing and soothing properties, whilst also being gentle enough for sensitive skin. I’ve used a couple of different products that heavily feature Centella but the recent ones that I’ve been trying out have been from Skin1004 – the Madagascar Centella Toning Toner and Centella Asiatica 100 Ampoule.

Both of these are available from BB Cosmetic individually or in a duo pack. I was lucky enough to try out both but I honestly think that incorporating just one of these into your routine will give you great benefits. I started out using the Toning Toner and then added in the Ampoule for comparison.

The Ampoule is available in two sizes: the 100ml for USD$16.48 (discounted from USD$25) or a smaller 55mL for USD$12. The Toner is also available in two sizes: the 400mL for USD$26.50 or 210mL for USD$15.60.

Alternatively, the Centella Asiatica line is also available in sets, which is what I have here – the Ampoule (100mL) and Toner (210mL) duo. This set specifically sells for USD$27.99 but you can also browse the BB Cosmetic website for others to suit your needs.

Review: Quad Active Boosting Essence (By Wishtrend)

By Wishtrend Quad Active Boosting Essence Kbeauty 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.

When it comes to Korean skincare, one of their most unique additions is a facial essence – in fact, this product originated from Korea. It is a hybrid of a toner and serum, formulated with a concentration of active ingredients to hydrate and rebalance, as well as boost the efficacy of other products.

There are a lot of great essences with varying speciality skin concerns on the market but the one that I’ve been trying out lately is a new addition to the By Wishtrend line. This is the Quad Active Boosting Essence, which has primarily anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.

I was actually quite surprised to receive this because, as we all know, the world is in a bit of a state at the moment and – understandably – a lot of product launches and PR send outs have been postponed. I actually didn’t expect to be reviewing much in the next few months but this really came at a convenient time.

Since I’m spending so much time at home now, I barely wear make up (whereas I used to wear a full face every day) and am instead taking time to develop a morning and evening skincare routine. I used the product twice a day for approximately two weeks and definitely saw some good results!

This is currently selling for USD$23 on the Wishtrend website.

As a special promotion, I have also been given a code (STELLA15) for 15% off – valid until April 30.

And now, let’s just dive right into this review!

Review: Youthful Glow Sugar Mask (Klairs)

Klairs Youthful Glow Sugar Mask Kbeauty 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.

I have tried out a handful of Klairs products since getting into kbeauty and I really like their simple approach to their brand and formulations. Of course, not everything is going to work for everyone – it all comes down to skin type and personal preference really. However, I trust the brand a lot so I’m always down to try something new from them.

One of the products that had been catching my eye on Instagram is the Youthful Glow Sugar Mask. I have actually been eying since the first launch but it was not yet available on the main Wishtrend website – it’s here now though and I’m so glad that I can finally satisfy my sugary curiosity! Although it is described as a sugar mask, it is actually multi-purpose and can also be used as a scrub.

It is marketed as being suitable for all skin types but reviews seem to say this is more targeted for dry to normal skin. Since I lean more to the oily side, I was more limited with how I can use the product. However, I have been trying it out for a while and I’m really confident that I can give this a thorough review!

So, if you want to check out the Youthful Glow Sugar Mask then pop onto Wishtrend (where it’s selling for USD$24). Otherwise, here’s the review!
