Review: Battle of the K-Beauty Cushions (feat Amuse, Moonshot and Tir Tir)

Korean Cushion Spotlight from StyleKorean - Featuring Amuse, Moonshot and Tir Tir

A clean, healthy base is essential to a great make up look, and thats why I think that a lot of people love foundation cushions. They’re convenient, easy-to-use and there are so many absolutely incredible formulas out there. I’ve used a lot of different products in the past but was recently tasked with trialing, reviewing and comparing a big range of cushions from some of the most popular k-beauty brands of the moment: Amuse, Moonshot and Tir Tir.

The formulas here change from sheer and dewy, to fuller coverage mattes though, naturally, some will better suit my preferences and style. So, I’ll be discussing how these all worked for my specific skin type and concerns:

  • Skin type: Combination, dehydrated skin
  • Skin concerns: Texture and enlarged pores
  • Shade: Shade 21, MAC N4.5 or Fenty 150

The cushions that I will be reviewing include:

All of these are available at StyleKorean and also fully linked within this review.

Brand Spotlight & Review: Korean Temporary Tattoos with Freaky Nine

FreakyNine Korean Temporary Tattoo Review

Many idols and trendsetters have gotten attention for their tattoos recently, but did you know that tattooing is largely still illegal in Korea? That said, stigma against body art has gradually changed in recent years and there’s a lot of desire to experiment without commitment. With this in mind, young Koreans are turning to tattoo stickers – but these are much prettier than what we used in our childhood.

A brand that I would recommend is Freaky Nine – they collaborate with real Korean artists, so their catalogue is super unique. Read on to find out more!

Review: Mary & May Wash Off Packs

Mary & May Wash Off Packs

This product was sent to me for review purposes. Please note that affiliate links are used.

I wasn’t always a fan of wash off masks because I was lazy to clean my face afterwards. However, I like to think that I’ve seen the light, and maybe just gained a little more appreciation for the minutes I get to spend alone in the bathroom, because I’m now obsessed. I generally use gel or clay formulas, but I’ve been testing out these Mary & May Wash Off Packs recently.

A clean k-beauty brand, Mary & May uses high quality, EWG Green ingredients in all of their products. They believe that “different solutions are needed for different skin types and conditions,” and so their products all target a variety of skin concerns (in fact, they also boast a range of eight serums). Most of these products can also be mixed and matched according to your skin condition.

The brand carries three different wash off packs, each suited for different skin concerns. All of these are currently available at StyleKorean for USD$17 (on sale from USD$29), or even in a duo set with a matching serum. The variants include:

I’ve tried a lot of different masks in the past and (I have to admit), sometimes I can’t tell the difference between variants! Especially in immediate results. However, these Wash Off Packs really caught me by surprise – they have a similar texture, but the results are vastly different. You can tell that Mary & May formulated these with different skin types in mind and at least one of these has become a fast favourite.

Brand Spotlight: Amuse, the Vegan K-Beauty Brand

If you’re a fan of Red Velvet (the kpop group), then you have definitely heard of Amuse before – because their brand model is Seulgi! Based in Seoul, they’re a fairly new beauty brand that’s all about clean, vegan formulas (certified by Eye Vegan), sustainability, and well as unique colours that bring happiness and good vibes.

I was originally introduced to Amuse through StyleKorean‘s recommendation, as they’ve started to stock a huge range of their products. After that, I took my time painstakingly deciding what I wanted to try, because I was essentially keen on everything.. but I think I made some great choices!

Read on to see some of the different formulations by Amuse, including their Eye Vegan Sheer Palette, Blush Kit and Dew Velvet Lip Tint. I also have a review of their cushions coming soon, but I wanted to keep those separate. Check out StyleKorean to shop their entire rane but before you do, let’s get into this post.
