Review: Rose Essence Multi Finish (Skinfood)

Skinfood Rose Essence Multi Finish KollectionK Kbeauty Review

Skinfood is a Korean roadshop brand that is really well known for their skincare products – black sugar, avocado and probably potato; they have used it all. Their black sugar scrub is one of their cult items and is definitely one of my staples. Lesser known, however, is their cosmetics line. From what I hear, these products are sometimes a bit of a hit-or-miss since it isn’t their speciality.

Today, I’m going to be reviewing the Rose Essence Multi Finish, which is a super pretty 3-in-1 product (highlighting, blush, eyeshadow). This was sent to me for review by KollectionK, so please remember to check out their store afterwards. They have a great range as well as a newly launched shopping service!

For this product, I was initially really taken away by how beautiful the packaging is but, unfortunately, I’m a little disappointed by the sheer pigmentation. It seems like colour products really aren’t their strong point, though there are some purposes that suit this product better than others.

Review: Delight Circle Lens Mascara (Tonymoly)

Tonymoly Delight Circle Lens Mascara KollectionK Kbeauty Review

I have something to confess – I don’t wear mascara as often as I should (and by should, I mean as often as it seems other people do). Ever since I started reading fashion magazines as a kid, I would often hear the legends about people who just wore mascara for their daily make up and  yet still had this lusciously long, defined eyes. I’ve tried – really I have – but I was never able to achieve that. Blessed with short, sparse and stubborn eyelashes, I have clipped myself with curlers, gotten mascara on the bridge of my nose and, at my most dedicated stage, tried a good five layers!

Does this all sound a little overdramatic? Okay, perhaps it is, but I have a point, I swear!

Lately, I’ve had a newfound love for mascaras and I’ve been trying a lot of different formulas to see what works best for my super stubborn lashes. I’ve found other formulas that work best for me, focusing on lengthening or creating volume, as well as ensuring that the product is actually waterproof. Although it is best not to use that type of formula every day, I personally don’t have much of a choice because I have strong hayfever and very water-y eyes.

So today’s review (which unfortunately is a little bare on photos) is of Tonymoly’s Delight Circle Lens Mascara (Curling) which was sent to me by KollectionK for review. There are three different formulas for this product and I chose the curling version because my lashes are almost impossible to keep curled and I wanted a challenge.

Review: Full Cover Concealer (Aritaum)

Aritaum Full Cover Concealor Stick KollectionK Kbeauty Review

Concealer can either make or break your base make up and, honestly, I seldom get it right. I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect concealer product for me and, at the moment, pretty much swear by Clio’s Kill Cover. It has been the only product that could simultaneously give me super high coverage (because I am a night owl and definitely need it) while not making my skin look super dry and aged. However, just because I found one thing that works pretty well, doesn’t mean I’m giving up on it all!

KollectionK sent me the following product for review and I was pretty excited to try it out. My friend Sophia uses the pot version of Aritaum’s Full Cover concealer, so I had high hopes for this. I chose to review the stick version instead though, as I find it a lot handier to carry around in my bag. I’ve used MAC’s studio sculpt pot concealer before, which had pretty good coverage, but felt it didn’t suit my on-the-go and hurry-up-you’re-late lifestyle very well.

Review: Peri’s Ink Drop BB Cream (Peripera)

Peripera Clio Peri's Ink Pure Ivory KollectionK Kbeauty Review

Please note that this post uses affiliate links, but I have not been paid to write this post. Any money made from affiliate links is invested back into the maintenance and updating content for this blog.

I am a massive fan of Clio, as people are well aware, and one of their other brands is Peripera. Although I am not a hundred percent certain whether Peripera is a sub-brand or similar, I do know that they both have the same strengths in staying power and pigmentation. I’ve been obsessed with the Peri’s Ink lip tints since trying them over in Korea so I was super excited when they actually came out with a Peri’s Ink Drop BB Cream!

This product comes in the very familiar Peri’s Ink packaging, though slightly altered for the new product, and contains SPF30 PA++. It’s a little bit less than what I would usually use but, since I’ve now developed the good habit of using sunscreen, I can look past that.

If you’re interested in getting this product, or some others, check out KollectionK. They were so nice to send me a couple of products to review and I have good thoughts towards their service as well – clean shopping cart, easy to search products and a useful wishlist function. Since my first review, they have also launched a part of their website called Koncierge – a personal shopping service, for when you’re looking for products that you can’t find on their website (or elsewhere).

Unboxing and Haul: KollectionK

KollectionK Kbeauty Review

To be honest, I had sincerely thought that this post was already made! Only, I just realised that the photos were sitting in my drafts and I’ve been testing these products and thinking up the review before even doing the haul post. Aren’t I silly? Anyway, today is just one of those days – it’s rainy here in Sydney, work is rather slow and not very much is happening. As a pick me up, I figured that it would be best to do this post and look at all these lovely things that KollectionK had sent me to review! Most of these are actually things that I chose myself so I’ll talk about why I was interested in them too.

KollectionK Kbeauty Haul Review

If you’re interested in checking out KollectionK, click the link above. Although their prices are a little higher than the other stores I’ve visited, they also have one of the best designed and most user friendly stores that I have seen for kbeauty.

While I was shopping on their site, I liked to go through everything and make a wish list, which I would then go through again. If there are some items on your wishlist that are out of stock, then don’t worry about that either! KollectionK restocks very often and will even send you an email to let you know. Overall, I really love their website and think their service is good too!

Let’s move onto what I recieved!
