Review: Multi Solution Triple V Ampoule (Swanicoco)

Swanicoco Bitamin C Multi Solution Triple V Ampoule Kbeauty Review

Have you guys heard of a brand called Swanicoco? I was introduced to them by StyleKorean who, at the time that I received this product, had just brought them to their store. However, I’ve actually seen their stuff around on Instagram before! To be honest, I can’t say that I am that familiar with them though, but I was still interested to try them out.

Swanicoco is a brand that focuses on the use of natural ingredients – in fact, the founder started out by making natural skincare for her family’s sensitive and atopic skin conditions. All products from the brand use 90% to 100% natural ingredients and are free from animal testing. In addition, the brand excludes any harmful ingredients from their formulations (pigments, synthetic perfumes, chemical preservatives, alcohol, mineral oil, paraben and benzophenone) so they are also suitable for sensitive skin.

I decided to start off with their Multi Solution Triple V Ampoule. I love brightening products and, since my skin has been quite irritated with all of my break outs lately, it seemed like I needed a new and more gentle formula.

This is currently available on the StyleKorean website for USD$24.20 so definitely jump on there if you want to check it out.

Otherwise, let’s get into this review!

Review: Patting Splash Mask (Blithe)

Blithe Patting Splash Mask Energy Yellow Citrus & Honey 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.

So I first decided to try out the Blithe Patting Splash Mask because it was so unique – I used masks all of the time and I’ve tried some pretty wild things (hello foot peeling mask) but I have never come across a ‘splash’ mask. To be honest, I didn’t really understand what it was either but, now that I’ve tried it, I have zero regrets. In fact, if I had actually searched up some reviews about this before hand, I wouldn’t have hesitated either – I’m definitely not the only one who loves this.

This is a liquid mask solution that is known to give pretty much instant results. The application of it can be a bit messy and there’s a learning curve to it but, once you get it, it’s pretty enjoyable. I first tested this out by using it every day for around 4 days, which was fine on my skin, but I read some (pretty reliable) reviews online that recommended to use it every second or third day instead, so I switched it up. Since this can be a bit pricey, I think that it’s better to be able to use it less often too anyway.

So this mask is currently selling on StyleKorean for USD$35.91 for a 200mL bottle – which is enough for approximately 30 uses – or USD$29 for a 150mL bottle. It comes in three different variants too but the one that I have is the Energy Citrus and Honey. Jump onto their website if you want to pick it up too but otherwise, let’s get into this review!

Review: Veil Tint Dewy (CLIO)

CLIO Veil Tint Dewy 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.

CLIO is one of those k-beauty brands that I trust when it comes to make up. Of course, it’s natural that not all of their products suit my skin type (for example, those very popular dewy cushion foundations look ridiculous on me), they are still very consistent with their quality and brand values. I’ve been in love with them since back when I was studying in Korea and my friend got me into their Kill Brow and Kill Black lines, and those are still products that I recommend to this day!

The CLIO brand is all about bringing professional artistry quality makeup to an affordable, road shop setting. When you go into their stores, you’ll find that everything is somewhat nightlife and club inspired (hence they call themselves Club CLIO) so you can expect high pigmentation, long wearing and life-proof formulations.

StyleKorean just sent me through three of the Veil Tint Dewy (which I have been eying because of the gorgeous monochromatic packaging). I chose three shades from different colour families – Maroon Blood, Rose Milk Tea and Taro Rose – as I wanted to give a wholistic overview on how these perform.

If you want to get your hands on them, they are selling for USD$9.60 each (on sale from USD$19.20) at StyleKorean. But before that, lets get into this review!

New Release & Review: rêve de Paris Collection (Moonshot)

Moonshot Kbeauty Review Reve de Paris Collection 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.

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: Strobing Skin Palette (3CE)

3CE Stylenanda Kbeauty Review Strobing Skin Palette

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 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: Layer Covering Stick Foundation (3CE)

3CE Stylenanda Kbeauty Review Layer Covering Stick Foundation Pink Ivory

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 while since I tried something new from 3CE but they’re one of my favourite kbeauty cosmetic brands (I’ve tried skincare from them too but, personally, I would stick to their makeup). They have been releasing a lot of colour based collections lately – most likely because their Mood Recipe line was so popular – and I’ve been loving the development of their packaging too.

When I was searching up some of their new products on StyleKorean, I saw that there was a new collection – the Easy Touch-Up Base Make-Up Edition, which is centred around easy-to-use formulas that work together to create a flawless base in the simplest ways. All of the packaging uses nude and blush shades and the range consists of foundation, concealer and two cheek palettes (contour and highlight).

Once again, this 3CE review will be split into two but, first off, I’ll be reviewing the Layer Covering Stick Foundation. As per the name, this is a stick foundation with a solid, balm type formula and a buffer brush on the other end. I personally really like this type of product, mostly because it’s so easy and quick to use, but there are many that don’t suit my skin type. In fact, even some raved about, top-selling stick foundations have not worked for me but instead, I found that kbeauty formulas work a lot better.

This is currently selling on StyleKorean for USD$17.60 (50% off from the full price of USD$35.20) so definitely jump on quick if you want to pick this up. Before that though, let’s get right 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: 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: MediAnswer Set (About Me)

StyleKorean Review About Me Medianswer Collagen Lift Up Band and Firming Up Mask

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.

Last week I wrote a review on a Ground Plan product that had been sent to me by StyleKorean prior to its release. This week, I’ll be reviewing a set from the About Me brand – a beauty brand from the Korean conglomerate Samyang group that claims to draw knowledge of the vast number of sectors that the company has worked in. This set not on the website yet but the individual masks from this set are available. This MediAnswer Set contains the Collagen Firming up Mask and the Collagen Lift Up Band, both anti-aging products that claim to work absolute miracles.

Being fairly young and having enough baby fat on my face to be confused for a silly teenager, most anti-aging products don’t show up result on my skin. At the very most, they would be useful as a preventative method. For this reason, I also enlisted the help of my mum to test these out (especially the Collagen Lift Up Band). The Firming Up Mask I used on myself only so I will give my thoughts based off of my own skin.

Although I don’t know the price for this set yet, the individual masks are available and – to be honest – the price is a bit expensive but still relatively affordable in comparison to Western high end brands. The Collagen Firming Up Mask (in a box set of 4) sells for USD$28.12, whilst the Collagen Lift Up Band (also in a set of 4) sells for USD$34.65 – they are both available on the StyleKorean website now along with a wide range of other products from the About Me brand.

Before I let you hop off onto their website though, let’s get into this review!
