Review: Dailism Eye Palette – Rose Memory (Heimish)

Dailism Eye Palette (Rose Memory) StyleKorean Review

It’s no secret that I’m an absolute eyeshadow addict but most of my collection is actually Western. There are very few kbeauty eyeshadows that I personally love, mostly because I find their formulations too sheer and light for my style. However, there is one brand that I fell in love with early on in my make up journey – Heimish! You can actually check out my review for their original Dailism Eye Palette way back in 2016 when they were still a very new brand to StyleKorean (right here).

It’s been going on three years now and the Heimish brand has expanded a lot, but I think that I will always be going back to their eyeshadow palettes. I loved the original one so much and I ended up using it as a travel palette over and over again, but I was getting sort of bored of the colours. My own style and preferences have changed a lot since then, so I felt like it was time to revisit the brand again just to find another palette that really speaks to me.

Looking through the Heimish offerings over at StyleKorean, I realised that they have also since repackaged all of their Dailism Eye Palettes! The general case is the same but they now have different colours (to reflect the theme) and their box packaging is also much more beautiful. There are three different colour variants available (Coral Essay, Brick Brown and Rose Memory) and I ended up choosing to review Rose Memory, which has a more romantic and sultry pink theme. It is also a little bit cooler in undertone compared to the other two.

This palette is selling for USD$32 on StyleKorean, which is a minor mark up considering it was originally USD$29.90 back in 2016. With the upgraded packaging and the fact that Heimish is now a much more established brand though, I think that this is a fair price. Check them out on StyleKorean if you’re keen to buy but first – let’s get into this review!

Review: R U 16 Taste-Chu (16 Brand)

16 Brand R U 16 Taste Chu Lipstick StyleKorean 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 bullet lipsticks but, in this case, the packaging definitely won me over. I know! I’m always a sucker for things but like but, considering that this is a 16 Brand product, I was also pretty confident that the formula would be decent! I wasn’t wrong too, because after trying these out, I totally get why some people have been raving about them and I already want more shades.

This is the R U 16 Taste-Chu Lipstick from 16 Brand. They are essentially a blur-look matte finish lipstick that is candy themed. All of the shades are named after some sort of sweet and the lipstick shades (and scents) are good enough to eat. In fact, my mum thought that someone else me chocolate when these first arrived… hehe!

These products were sent to me for review by StyleKorean, who actually carry a really great range of 16 Brand stuff! The lipsticks come in four different shades (which I will discuss below) and I have two here to swatch and review – Brown Fudge and Cherry Almond.

If you’d like to pick these up, they’re currently on sale for USD$14.40 (down from USD$18) on the StyleKorean website but do grab them quickly! They were almost sold out when I looked last and they just restocked, so I think these go quick.

And now, let’s get into this!

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: Vita Duo Cream (Neogen)

Neogen Vita Duo Cream

This product was sent to me by Neogen for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that some affiliate links are used on my blog. These go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

There are only a handful of kbeauty youtubers that I watch now but I have actually watched a couple of videos from Joan Kim (@JoanKeem) in the past – She is actually the one who introduced me to the Neogen brand! It seems so appropriate that she is now collaborating with them.

This is the Neogen Vita Duo Cream, which she also helped to develop and design (packaging wise). Since I’m not a massive fan of hers, my review of this product is purely based on the formula and it’s role in my skincare routine – and I genuinely love this product! I love the concept of the dual cream, which makes it perfect for travel, and the formulation of it also works really nicely with my skin type. This is a product designed to give your complexion the necessary hydration throughout the day, as well as to provide brightening and soothing benefits (depending on which you use).

This product is currently available on NudieGlow for AUD$52 (down from AUD$55) or on StyleKorean for USD$32 – so you can see which store works best with your home currency. Alternatively, you can shop it directly from Neogen’s Amazon store.

I’ve been testing this out twice a day since I got it, and it’s safe to say that I’m very confident with this write up now. So, let’s get right into this review.

Review: Big Pang Pang Dot Cushion vs Blanc Pact (Elroel)

Elroel Blanc Pact and Dot Cushion 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 the battle of the massive cushions! I was introduced to these cushions from Elroel by StyleKorean and, honestly, I was so fascinated by the sheer size of them that I really wanted to feature them on my blog. I haven’t been using cushions a lot lately because I have been wearing Western foundations, but I actually always carry one (or two) of these in my bag to touch up with during the day. For the sake of review though, I did change up my make up routine!

Today, I want to review and compare to vastly different products from the Elroel line – their Big Pang Pang Dot Cushion, which is more like a standard sponge type cushion, and also their Blanc Pact, which is like a solid cream compact type product. Both of these are foundation/base make up type products (the latter is not a sun pact) and are selling for USD$33 on the StyleKorean website. They also have Mini Cushions if you aren’t about that oversized life.

So, let’s go right into the review and let these two battle it out.

Review: 16 Mochi Pact (16 Brand)

16 Brand Mochi Pact 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.

With all of the new releases that have been coming out in Western brands, I admit that I’ve been a bit lax with following kbeauty news – I know about the bigger collections of course, but some of the smaller brands have fallen off my radar. Luckily though, I have some awesome friends who are totally on the ball and when StyleKorean posted about this new Mochi Pact highlighter from 16 Brand, my friend Liz (from @lizlamloves – please give her some love, she’s the sweetest) messaged me right away!

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to try it at first, because I generally don’t use cream blushers or highlighters, but with the super pretty promotional photos and videos – I just really wanted to try it! 

StyleKorean sent me through one of these to review and I’m glad that they did because I discovered that this is more of a soft, cream-to-powder formula that definitely picks up with a brush! The product comes in three shades, but I decided to go for Peach Light which is their pink highlight (and the one in the promo videos that got my attention).

If you want to get your hands on these, head over to StyleKorean where they are currently on sale for USD$14.08 (on sale from USD$17.60) – and without further ado, let’s get into the review!

Review: OMG! Pulling & Peeling Kit (Double Dare)

Double Dare OMG Mask Kit StyleKorean 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.

Following up from my previous review, I figured that it’s time to write about this Double Dare kit that I also received from StyleKorean – and was obviously the most excited to try out because of the packaging. I actually tried this out before the three step mask so this was my first impression of the brand, and they definitely impressed me.

Although I received this package as a set, the products are actually sold individually on the website. You can get the OMG! Peeling Gel for USD$22 or the OMG! Pulling Gel for USD$15 (USD$28 if you want it with the mini brush too), They also have these really cute head bands (the OMG! Head Band) for USD$8 each – and they come in six different colours but, as if it is fate, I got the black one!

So, I’ll briefly go over this kit packaging and mostly talk about the products as individuals. Let’s get into it!

Review: Platinum Green/Silver Facial Mask Kit (Double Dare)

Double Dare OMG Mask StyleKorean 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.

The Double Dare brand is a new one to StyleKorean and I was lucky enough to be sent over a couple of items so I could try them out and give my thoughts. I did get a big mask kit from them as well, which is actually a bit more exciting, but I wanted to write about these first because they’re faster to test out and gather my thoughts. This is a brand that I haven’t heard about before and, from what I can see, it seems that they are focusing on masking products – detoxers, peel offs, exfoliants etc. According to them, “All of our products were designed to nourish an adventurous spirit, and fuel a passion for discovery and innovation. Dare to discover a new way to think about looking and feeling beautiful with Double Dare.”

This is the Facial Mask Kit which is a three step detoxing mask, with the biggest selling point being the pretty chrome finish of the peel off mask. This is part of the OMG! Platinum Collection and is available in four different colours, but I will be showing the two that I have – the Platinum Green and Platinum Silver – primarily the green variant as I am saving the silver one for an IG Live video.

Being a three step mask kit, these are single use only and sell for USD$8.50 – they aren’t cheap in comparison to standard sheet masks, but are unique enough to justify the price. They’re not exorbitant either so, to be honest, I would buy it just to try it out. Anyway, let’s get into this review!

Review: White Milk Lotion (3CE)

3CE white milk lotion stylekorean 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.

Whitening creams, or tone up creams if you’re after the proper product name, are a pretty popular item in kbeauty. Not to be confused with bleaching or skin lightening products, which are highly dangerous and should be avoided, tone up creams generally have a more cosmetic effect. Depending on the exact product, they may have skin recovery, SPF or whitening (reducing pigmentation) benefits. The product generally also has a white colour to it so, when applied, will give the skin an immediately brightened effect. This is especially well suited for people who are naturally quite pale but have some unevenness in skin tone. Of course, being a cosmetic whitening product, it does come with some controversy but I’m not here to discuss that.

In the past, I have used the 3CE White Milk Cream, which I liked at the time. I’ve been using the left over (which is now expired) mixed in with a lotion on the rest of my body so I haven’t tried any new whitening cream on my face for quite a while. When I found out that the 3CE white milk range had been expanded though, I was interested. Of course, the fact that this lotion is so insanely excessively packaged definitely helped!

They now carry a handful of skincare products under the White Milk collection, as well as a White Milk Lotion – which I assumed would be a similar tone up cream to the original, but in a lighter formula. I wasn’t exactly right, but I wasn’t wrong either. I received this product to review from StyleKorean and, while it is currently out of stock, they still carrying a range of the White Milk products (like my favourite cushion) and also the similar White Milquidro range.

So, if you’re keen to read more about this product (and see this ridiculous packaging), read on!

Review: Pure Pearlsation Divine Pearl Cleansing Oil & Revitalizing Facial Cleansing Foam (KLAVUU)

Klavuu Pure Pearlsation 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.

This is going to be a short post because, unfortunately, these cleansing products didn’t really work out for me – in fact, one of them broke me out. In retrospect, I don’t think that I had a very good time with KLAVUU products (which is surprising because a lot of people legitimately love them). I am thinking that one of their core ingredients just don’t work very well with my skin, which is a shame because I really wanted to love these.

Out of their cleansing products, StyleKorean sent me two from their Pure Pearlsation line – the Cleansing Oil and the Revitalizing Facial Cleansing Foam. As they naturally sit together as a two step cleansing routine, I originally tried them out together but had to drop one completely within a day!

So, if you want to know about my experiences with these products, which one didn’t work for me and what other recommendations I have instead – read on.
