Review: 24 Hour Secret Mist Plus (Ground Plan)

StyleKorean Review Ground Plan 24 Hour Secret Mist Plus

When it comes to toners, some people prefer super hydrating formulas and others need oil control. In the end, a lot of that comes down to your skin condition and type so – even for me – I switch a lot between products. The one thing that reminds the same though is that I love a mist toner! I would honestly finish up so many bottles of these and then refill them because I don’t see why regular bottles exist anymore (a bit of an exaggeration but you know what I mean).

I’m known to be carrying around a mist most of the time and I even had a small collection on my desks at home and work – so it’s clear that this is one of my favourite application methods for most things. I just find that it is so quick and simple, with no need to fuss with cotton pads and possible spillage. For someone who is usually running short on time, anything to simplify my skincare routine is preferred.

StyleKorean recently contacted me about testing out a new product that they are yet to officially stock – just because they want more real opinions on the products before launching. I really respect this so I definitely jumped on board right away. This is the 24 Hour Secret Mist Plus from the brand Ground Plan. It is currently not on sale on the StyleKorean website yet but I will definitely be updating this post when it is. In the meantime, check out their website and let’s get on with this review!

Review: Kill Cover Stay Perfect Foundation (CLIO)

CLIO Kill Cover Stay Perfect Foundation Kbeauty 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.

In my humble opinion, everyone is looking for the perfect foundation (unless you have perfect skin in which case, thanks – I am very jealous). I’ve personally been trying out a lot of different base cosmetics to try and find something that really works for me; my skin type has changed in recent years from very dry to combination-oily, which was a pretty big jump and can even vary depending on the seasons and weather. A lot of the foundation formulas that worked for me back in the days don’t anymore but, in general, I now prefer to use lightweight matte formulas.

The CLIO Kill Cover Cushion is one that I used back when I first started experimenting with cushions, but I haven’t tried out their foundation until now. This is the Kill Cover Stay Perfect Foundation, which is a liquid foundation that comes in a set with a “hydro makeup sponge”. It comes in four shades and I’ll be reviewing Lingerie (which is the equivalent of a shade 21 and my usual when it comes to their base cosmetics).

I received this from StyleKorean for reviewing purposes so, if you’re keen on getting this, it is available on their website for USD$36 – it is similarly priced in comparison to other CLIO products too, but liquid foundations will last much longer than cushions.

So, let’s get into it!

Review: Lip Motion (B By Banila)

B By Banila Co Lip Motion Lipstick Kbeauty 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.

Admittedly, I am a total sucker for Banila Co. I use their oil cleansing balm almost religiously and have also liked most of the cosmetics that I’ve tried out as well. For me, my love for Banila Co started when they brought in Taeyeon as their model and – aside from just loving her in general – I loved how they did her make up and styling for all of the advertising campaigns. I felt like they were so much more trend-forward and lively than the previous Nature Republic advertisements (they started to look real weird in later years).

Since then, I’ve been really keen on the brand and keeping a close eye on their new releases. I find that Banila Co is a bit hard to buy online, since they are mostly just famous for their cleanser, so I practically jumped when I saw that B. By Banila was being stocked at StyleKorean! This is their new sister brand that specialises in cosmetics – so it’s right down my alley.

There are a handful of products from them that are available on the StyleKorean website but I decided to start my first foray into this sub-brand with their Lip Motion lipsticks! These are selling on the website for USD$18 and also come in two different finishes – and I tried out both, of course. I found that I lean towards the matte formula because thats what I’m used to wearing every day but the glossier version is also really pretty and versatile too.

So, let’s get into this review!

Review: Dailism Eye Palette – Rose Memory (Heimish)

Dailism Eye Palette (Rose Memory) 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.

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!
