Review: Strobing Skin Palette (3CE)

3CE Stylenanda Kbeauty Review Strobing Skin Palette

Following up from my last review of a foundation from the Easy Touch-Up Base Make-Up Edition, I also tested out the Strobing Skin Palette from this release. I have always loved 3CE for their colour cosmetics products and actually have one of their baked highlighters (which I used to love but don’t reach for much anymore as it’s too ‘natural’ for my current style), so I wanted to give this one a try too.

This is a three pan ‘strobing’ palette which contains three highlighters (though one is more like a hybrid highlighting blush). It is all about achieving a flawless base with minimal effort – so this product is definitely intended to be easy and quick to use.

This is currently selling on the StyleKorean website for USD$31.90 – which is a bit expensive for a k-beauty brand but isn’t too bad when compared with other high end Western brands (because 3CE is more of a boutique brand than road shop, in my opinion). Pop on their website if you’re keen to pick up the Strobing Skin Palette as I’m not sure if this is a permanent item.

Before you do that you, 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: Zero Cushion (Rom&nd)

Rom&nd Romand Zero Cushion 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.

Are you an anime fan? For me, I grew up watching things like Ranma 1/2, Cardcaptors and Sailor Moon – but I have never actually watched Anne of Green Gables. I love the nostalgia and aesthetic of old school anime though so this collection from Rom&nd had quickly caught my eye on Instagram. Of course, it also helped that their promotional photos are also bloody beautiful. I was lucky enough to get my hands on a few things to try out and this is actually my first experience with the Rom&nd brand too!

I will be splitting my review of their products into two posts.

First off is the Zero Cushion, which is available on the StyleKorean website in both the Anne of Green Gables Collection (discounted to USD$22.50) or in the Original packaging (currently full price at USD$27.50). If you’re keen to get your hands on this cushion – especially if you want the Anne of Green Gables case – then jump onto the StyleKorean website as I’m pretty sure it will be gone soon.

Before that though, have a read of my review on this cushion to determine if it’s the right product for you. I personally think that this is a bit of a polarising formula and, depending on your personal preferences, you will either love or or hate it.

Let’s get into it!

Review: Full Brow

Full Brow Beauty Review

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

So this took me so long to do this write up (although I had already done a review on this brand on my Instagram) but I felt like I couldn’t skip out on this because I have genuinely been really enjoying Full Brow products and have fully worked them into my every day make up routine!

For those that don’t know them, Full Brow is an indie Australian brand that focuses almost solely on your brows – i.e. my everything. They are Melbourne based and work to create quality brow products that are also simple to suit people of varying styles and experience levels too! Their products are cruelty-free and paraben free, and many of them are also vegan-friendly too.

They reached out to be about trying out some of their products and I chose three from their range that I felt would sit in well with my personal brow style and routine – the Brow Powder, Brow Crayon and their Brow Fibre.

So, lets kick into this review!

Tutorial: Valentines Day Look with Althea

Althea Korea Make Up Tutorial Valentines Day Look

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

I was never a big fan of Valentines Day as it always seemed like such a commercialised excuse of an event. Love is wonderful and amazing, but I feel like that’s something we should be celebrating every day. All of those roses and chocolates don’t really mean anything – though admittedly, I would never decline roses and chocolate (especially not chocolate). The thing that I like best about these sort of celebratory days though, is that it gives an excuse for some themed make up looks! And they’re really great for boosting creativity – which is what I’ve needed lately.

Recently, Althea Korea launched a selection of make up from their own brand – all of which they sent me over to play around with and to create a pictorial. In the past, I’ve used their skincare and some setting powders – most of which I’ve loved – but this is actually their first foray into colour cosmetics. The most logical thing to do would be a Korean inspired look but I wanted to do something a little different today.

So, today I’ll be showing you how I achieved this Valentines Day themed look with cute rosy cheeks, some pretty raspberry tones and a cute little heart detailing. Although this is a Valentines look, this is really something you could wear for any occasion – because love is never out of style! I wanted to do something more creative but that would also be wearable enough so that it can be worn outside of instagram.

In this tutorial/pictorial, I’ll be featuring the new Althea Korea cosmetics too so, let’s go!

New Release: Too Faced Tutti Frutti launches at Mecca

Tutti Frutti Too Faced at Mecca Maxima

Being Australia, we often get releases later than other countries so I don’t always write about them (nor do I get the chance to try them on time for the post to actually be relevant). When Too Faced first announced the Tutti Frutti collection, I was super excited because the concept and packaging of it was just so cute – and not overdone like some other releases. However, I first thought that this was never going to come to our shores, since it was an Ulta exclusive, but it’s finally here at Mecca Maxima!

There was a pre-release for Level 3 members maybe two weeks ago but, for everyone else, this collection is dropping in just two days on January 30th. From Mecca

Introducing a new fabulous and fruity line from Too Faced, just in time for Summer!  It’s impossible not to be the life of the party with these feminine pops of colour, infused with juicy scents and party-ready sparkle. Wrapped in playful prints and modern packaging, the collection includes 53 brand new products such as candy glaze lip glosses, sparkling eye shadows and refreshing cucumber and watermelon-infused foundations that turn any moment into a celebration. 

So, let’s get right into this because I want to share details on every product in this new release and my personal thoughts on whether I’ll be buying them!

Review: Sublime Skin Highlighting Trio (Pat McGrath Labs)

Pat McGrath Labs Highlighting Trio Palette Sephora Australia

Pat McGrath Labs is one of those brands for me – one that I love and respect so much, yet kind of hold back on purchasing too much from. The brand was only available online for the longest time, meaning that I couldn’t see anything in person before buying it – which is a big risk when it comes to such a high end brand.

When Sephora Australia announced that the brand was finally coming here, I was so excited that I might have cried a little bit! At current, they only have a few of the products available at select brick-and-mortar stores (with everything else being available online) but I have been told that the full range will be coming to stores early this year! I was planning on waiting until then to pick up a few more things but I couldn’t stop myself.

I had been eying this Sublime Skin Highlighting Trio for a really long time – the videos and swatches of it online looked incredible but I never got the chance to see it in real life. Even now, I just took the plunge and bought this on the Sephora Australia website with zero regrets! I love this!

This palette is currently selling for AUD$85 (though I checked and I bought it for AUD$75, which was the then full price – so I don’t know if they changed the price with the exchange rates). It is definitely one of the most expensive palettes I own at the moment, but the formula and finish is so unique that I can justify spending that money. I don’t think that this (or any make up) will ever be a necessity, but if you love blinding highlights and you’re looking to splurge on a high end palette – then let’s get into this review!

Review: Ink Velvet Mini Mini Lipstick (Peripera)

Peripera Ink Velvet Mini Mini Lipstick Set 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 love trying out new lip products but, truth be told, I don’t think I have ever finished a lipstick in my life – they’ve gone bad, or been accidentally smushed and ruined, but never actually finished. I’ve always felt like I needed to buy a full size of every product but have since realised what a waste it is. I now much prefer to use mini sizes for lipsticks; they’re better to put in your bag anyway and I still get a lot of use out of them.

In addition, they’re also a brilliant gift idea because they’re easy to create sets with while still being relatively affordable, so you’ll be sure that there’s shades to suit them.

It’s really a perfect idea that Peripera released this set of mini Ink Velvet Lipsticks for the 2018 holiday season and – even though I’m a little bit late with this – it’s okay! This is the Mini Mini Ink Velvet Stick Set which contains a set of five mini lipsticks in varying shades from neutral corals to a brighter, warm red. I tested these out most days since I received them and have also experimented with carrying them around so I’m pretty prepared for this review!

If you want to get your hands on these, they are available on the StyleKorean website for USD$33.60 (full price is USD$42). Otherwise, let’s get on with the review!

Review: True Wear Foundation (Hera)

Hera True Wear Foundation 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 was checking out the StyleKorean website when I came across the HERA True Wear Foundation, which interested me because it’s a pump foundation – most base cosmetics that I’ve come across in Korea have been either cushions or BB creams, but that seems to be changing with the trends now. This will be only the second product that I’ve tried from the brand, the first being their cushion (which I was underwhelmed by).

Since then, I haven’t really touched anything else from their brand but, considering that I’ve been loving foundations lately, this seemed like a good product to test out!

I usually wear a shade 21 but, as that was unfortunately unavailable on the StyleKorean website, I’m trying a shade 23 for this review (which is, as expected, a bit too dark for me). This foundation is also temporarily out of stock but I’m sure that it will come back in soon, so I’ll continue to link to the True Wear Foundation product page.

So, let’s get into this review! I’ll also put a swatch at the end of this post but, since this isn’t really my colour match, please don’t judge the shade.

Review: Sweetie Pie Radiant Matte Bronzer (Too Faced)

Too Faced Sweetie Pie Radiant Matte Bronzer

If there is anything that Too Faced is really good at, then it’s definitely packaging. They always have this way of making things super cute, almost a little bit childish, but still maintaining their high quality and appealing to their adult audience (because they are a high end brand, they are not children’s make up even if their blusher is shaped like a peach). Even if I haven’t loved every release from them, and haven’t agreed with everything they have done, they consistently impress me with how covetable their products are.

And that is exactly what propelled me to buy this, even though I knew that I hated the scent! This is the Too Faced Sweetie Pie Radiant Matte Bronzer – which is part of their permanent Peaches & Cream Collection (and hence has that signature sweet fig cream scent). Although this is marketed as a bronzer, I have primarily used it as a blush due to the slight pink tones in the pan and also the fact that I don’t really use bronzer all that much.

So, read on and let’s get into the review so you can get a better look at how pretty this is!
