Brand Spotlight: Toun28

Toun28 Kbeauty Skincare Review Brand Spotlight - 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.

For those who are passionate about sustainability (and vegan, cruelty-free skincare), then this kbeauty brand will be right up your alley! Toun28 is a relatively new brand, having launched back in 2016, and take a fully sustainable approach to their packaging. They even teamed up with StyleKorean for the Ugly Soap Project (a Green Week special) where they have made their ‘soap scraps’, or less than perfectly shaped ‘seconds’, available for just under a dollar – cutting down waste and saving you money.

Toun28 is now available at StyleKorean, and their prices are pretty good too. Today I’ll be reviewing their pH Balancing Toner, Lip Balm L2 (Unscented), Trouble Care for Sensitive Skin and Trouble Care for Dehydrated-Oily Skin. I had a bit of a mixed experience with these products, which I’ll discuss in depth, but I am still very impressed by Toun28 as a whole – and, of course, love their brand values.

Keen to try them out? Then let’s just right into this review!

Brand Spotlight: Flower Beauty

Flower Beauty Makeup Review

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

I don’t know anyone my age who doesn’t know Drew Barrymore; she’s an inspiring American actress who started out as a child star in ET and eventually became also super well known for her work in comedy – Charlie’s Angels, 50 First Dates, The Wedding Singer, Never Been Kissed, Music and Lyrics… goodness, the list just goes on! She is an icon and an inspiring figure who has been outspoken about her early battles with addiction, the impact of Hollywood, and is proof of how someone can fall down and come back stronger than ever.

In addition to watching her movies over and over again, I’ve also really wanted to try out her beauty brand Flower Beauty. Admittedly, I am often a bit skeptical about celebrity brands – too often they feel like unconsidered cash grabs, but this is exceptional. Flower Beauty is all about creating cosmetics that are easy and fun – because you are already beautiful. Their products are cruelty-free, so affordable and yes, Drew Barrymore has done so many videos genuinely talking about and using her own products.

In reviewing the brand, I’ll be sharing with you a number of different products including the Shimmer & Strobe Highlighting Palette, the Day Glow Highlight Glaze, the Lash Warrior Mascara, the Pyramids Cheek Color, and Petal Pout Lip Masks.

These are all currently available at Chemist Warehouse, their official Aussie stockist, and everything is under AUD$10! You can shop them at selected stores or online (use my ShopBack Referral Link for extra cashback too).

Before you do that though, let’s get into this!

Review: Lip Bokki Edition (Romand)

Romand Dokbeokki 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.

I know what you’re thinking – another Romand review? Honestly, I just couldn’t help it. As I had mentioned in the past, I’m a huge fan of the brand and I try to get their limited edition releases; and this Lip Bokki Edition set was just too cute to pass up! Rather than a full collection, this is a stand-alone set of mini lip products. It’s a good option for those who just want to try out the different formulas or as a cute gift (and would be especially great for people who love make up and Korean street food)!

This is going to be a fairly short review, as I mostly want to go through what is actually in this kit, but I wanted to get this up soon because – I believe – this collaboration is now discontinued. It is still available on StyleKorean but is likely not going to be restocked.

If you’re keen to pick this up, head on over there – the Lip Bokki Edition set is just USD$25.20 (on sale from USD$36), and is still available in either green or red packaging. And, lets get into this review!

Review: Be Original Edition – Hanbok Pt II (Romand)

Romand Hanbok Collection - See Through Melting Cheek and See Through Matte Tint - 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.

It’s no longer a secret that I’m a huge fan of Romand and have this urge to collect pretty much everything they release. In my last review of their Be Original Edition, I looked at their See Through Veilighter and Glasting Water Tints (which I still use and love on the regular). I was once again blown away by their concept execution and formulations, so I wanted to get a few more things from the collection… so here’s part two!

This time, I’ll be reviewing the See Through Melting Cheek and the See Through Matte Tint – the blushers are a whole new formula for the brand whilst the matte tints are pre-existing, but still new to me. In addition to this, there is also the Be Original Clear Cover Cushion and the Better Than Eyes.

These are all still available at StyleKorean but for a very limited time only – I’m not 100% sure on this but I think that the collaboration is finished now (or finishing soon) so it’s just while stocks last. In a big fan of Romand in general so… I would always be recommending these!

Review: nomakenolife (Japanese & Korean Beauty Box)

NMNL No Make No Life Beauty Subscription Box January Review

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

If you’ve followed me for a while, you might have noticed that I don’t review subscriptions boxes very often – it’s really just because I have a lot of products so find it hard to review. However, one box that has had my attention for literally years is the nomakenolife (or NMNL) box – they launched back in 2016 with a focus on super cute Korean and Japanese beauty products.

I was in particular interested in Japanese products- I adore J-Beauty but find it really hard to purchase overseas, and even harder to actually find out what I’m buying as there’s very little English information online. Because of this, I find it very helpful to have them selected and sourced for me to try out. The team from NMNL is actually Tokyo based too, so they’ve got their thumb on the latest trends and best selling products.

They also have special perks for subscribers – you gain points for every consecutive month that you’re signed up and can exchange them for exclusive items, get discounts or even shop on JapanHaul – and there’s some really cute stuff.

If you want to take a peek, head on over to the nomakenolife website. But before you do, let’s jump into this box!

Review: Be Original Edition – Hanbok (Romand)

Romand Hanbok Collection - Glasting Lip Tint and Highlighter - 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.

2020 was the year that I fell head over heels in love with Romand. I first tried them out in 2018 but they totally blew me away last year when they collaborated with one of my favourite Korean brands Neonmoon – you can check out my raving review of it here.

Of course they continued from strength-to-strength and, not long after that, I was completely taken by the Be Original Edition (also known as the Hanbok Collection)! This was a collaboration with the Korea Cultural Heritage Foundation (K-Heritage), and is inspired by the beautiful textiles and elegance of the Hanbok. I’m a bit of a geek and I adore traditional Asian garments, so I loved the aesthetics and style of this. The design actually reminded me a lot of the Jeonju Hanok Village, where I visited quite a few years ago!

That being said, I did get onto this collection a bit late so I don’t have everything here. More products are available on the StyleKorean website though. For today, I’ll be reviewing the See Through Veilighter and the Glasting Water Tints. You can also find the See Through Melting Cheek, See Through Matte Tint and the Clear Cover Cushion (the blush has been quite raved out and I definitely want to check it out).

Make sure to check out the StyleKorean website to pick these up, but let’s get into this review first!

New Release: +C Vit Collection (Pixi Beauty)

Pixi +C Vit Collection - Under Eye Brightener, Priming Oil, Brightening Perfector and Lip Brightener

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

For those looking to boost their skincare routine, Vitamin C is often one of the main go-tos. I’ve been a big fan of the ingredient ever since I started my skincare journey; in fact, it was one of the first ‘serums’ that I ever used. The natural next step would be a question of how to incorporate Vitamin C into our daily makeup routine too – and Pixi Beauty has done exactly that.

The +C Vit Collection is a hybrid skincare-makeup collection, mostly consisting of brightening products that work as a skin prep to the rest of your make up. They have both immediate and long-term benefits and consists of four products: the Undereye Brightener, Brightening Perfector, Priming Oil and the Lip Brightener – all of which are currently available on the Pixi Beauty website.

Head over there to check them out but, in the meantime, I’ll share with you some information (and personal thoughts) on the whole collection!

Review: Rom&ntic Moonight Collection (Rom&nd x NEONMOON)

Romand x Neonmoon Kbeauty Makeup 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.

If you follow me on Instagram, then this is not a surprise to you – I am obsessed with the Rom&ntic Moonight collection! This is a collaboration between Rom&nd (who I have reviewed before) and a Korean brand called NEONMOON – they are primarily a retro inspired fashion brand and I love them! They are actually a big inspiration for my online store too (so you can see how I love them). Their brand is about a fun, nostalgic aesthetic and bright colours – perfectly reflected in these products.

I don’t have everything from this collection (because it would be insane if I did) but I’ve got almost everything – and I need to share my thoughts with you! I am so happy with this collection: from the packaging to the formulas.. it’s brilliant. Today I’ll be showing you the Zero Cushion, Better Than Eyes Quad, Better Than Cheek Blushes and the Glasting Water Tint. The only product that I’m missing is the Glasting Water Gloss – but it’s available if you want to get it!

This whole collection is available at StyleKorean with prices ranging from USD$11.20 – USD$20.80. This collection is limited edition so check out their website to get your hands on this quick (you won’t regret it).

Before you do that though, let’s get right into this review!

First Impressions: K-Beauty Haul (Stylevana)

Stylevana KBeauty Review Jigott Real Ampoule Mask, Frudia Blueberry Hydration Mask, Labiotte Wine Lip Tint, Logically Skin Aquatide Resurface Serum, Chica Y Chico One Shot Eye Palette

This product was sent to me for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that there is an affiliate code advertised.

New products and deliveries are always so exciting for me – so yes, I was super keen when this package from Stylevana arrived. I was starting to feel overwhelmed for a while but since pulling back on my spending and on some PR in the past few months, it’s given me more of a chance to enjoy what I do (and work at my own pace).

This haul is a new collaboration for me! Stylevana is an online store that specialises in Asian beauty – they carry products from Korea, Japan and even Taiwan. The latter two are less talked about because they’re harder to access online, so I’m glad that there’s a new source for them! Aside from the big range of products, Stylevana also offers free shipping for orders over USD$55.

From now until the end of November, you can also get 10-15% off your order with my code INF10STELLAR (excluding weekend deals and instant offers since they are already on sale).

So, read on if you’re keen to see what I received! I’ll be putting my initial thoughts into this post rather that full on reviews (especially for the Logically, Skin Serum) since I think that I’ll need to use that much more extensively to give proper insight. Here goes!

Review: Layering Lip Bar in Stubborn Rose (Laneige)

Laneige Layering Lip Bar Stubborn Rose 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. These go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

It’s no secret that I’m a massive fan of Laneige, and I’ve been pretty dedicated in trying out all of their lip bar range – from the original, matte to tint, I’m literally tried them all. Along with their cushion (which is still one of my top favourites to this day) their lip bar was my introduction to the brand; this is back when the original was still selling out at a lot of stores.

Since then, they have released a number of additional formulas with this same gradient concept and – in my opinion – these are far superior to the original (which had always been a bit patchy for me). This new Layering Lip Bar has an updated layering design for more consistent application and comes in both Cream and Matte formulas spread over 20 shades.

I received this product to review and definitely want to get a few more shades – especially to try out the matte formula too! It’s currently selling for USD$25.20 (on sale from USD$36) from the StyleKorean website – they actually stock quite a lot of Laniege top products, so I would recommend checking out the range in general.

If you’re keen on this lip bar, or want to know how it compares with the others, read on for this review!
