Review: Better than Palette in Light & Glitter (Romand)

Romand Better Than Palette Kbeauty Makeup Review - Light & Glitter

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

If you’re a fan of Romand and glitter, then I’m certain that you’ve already seen this palette. After the popularity of their initial four Better Than Palettes (which I also reviewed here and on Instagram), they actually released another two – Shade & Shadow and Light & Glitter. The first is an all-matte brown palette, similar to the Dusty Fog Garden but with more neutral tones. It’s great for contouring or a natural, no-make up look. Meanwhile, the second is an all-glitter palette, featuring a number of different textures and reflects!

The Light & Glitter is definitely the one that caught my eye the most – I love the Romand glitter formula and having an entire ten pan palette of options sounded like a dream come true. That being said, they’re both currently available on StyleKorean (USD$24, on sale from USD$30) so pop on over there if you’re already keen on them.

If you need some more information to decide though, read on this review for full details and swatches!

Review: Real Up Cheek (Espoir)

Espoir Real Up Cheek Kbeauty Review

I’ve had my eye on Espoir as a brand for years now. I first came across them while I was a student in Korea but didn’t have the chance to try their products – they’re not actually that expensive, but I was living on a very limited allowance as an exchange student. Now that I’m working and can afford to spend more on my make up though, I’m pretty keen to get back into what felt just out of reach back then.

Espoir (stylized as eSpoir) is primarily a make up brand and has a focus on enhancing natural beauty – blending a professional make up artist vibe with popular, accessible trends. Because of this, their products are fun but still maintain a sleek, high end aesthetic.

The product that I’ll be showing you today is called the Real Up Cheek, and I’ll be straight up with you – this is one of the cutest blushes that I’ve never seen, and it’s not even cat themed or an anime collaboration! There are five shades in the range, but I’ll be reviewing Cheery Berry and Caring Coral. These are all available at StyleKorean for USD$16.20 (on sale from USD$18) so pop on over there if you want to check them out.

And now, let’s get into this review!

Review: Calming Cicatree Pad & Green Tea Moist PHA Gauze Peeling Pad (Neogen)

Neogen Calming Cicatree Pad Green Tea Moist PHA Gauze Peeling Kbeauty Review

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

If you’ve been a fan of Neogen for a while, then you have certainly come across their pad products before – particular their exfoliating peeling pads. I first came across them on YouTube and ended up falling in love with the original wine formula… but you know what got me excited about all over again? The reformulation!

This actually happened back in 2020 and, in addition to a much improved packaging design, all of their pads have been improved and are now certified Clean Beauty – meaning no animal testing, artificial fragrances, colouring, or alcohol! This change happened for the entire line but, for the sake of this review, I’ll be discussing the Calming Cicatree Pad and Green Tea Moist PHA Gauze Peeling Pad today.

These are both available at StyleKorean, so pop on over there if you want to pick them up! Before all of that though, lets get into this review!

Feature: Affordable K-Beauty Skincare Dupes to Brighten Your Routine

KBeauty Skincare Dupes

Please note that affiliate links are used.

Let’s be real – we all love a great dupe: they make beauty so much more accessible, whether it is because of cost or simply giving us more shopping options. When it comes to k-beauty, road shop and indie brands are constantly innovating and it’s not surprising that many of their formulas are on par (and sometimes arguably better) than their high end counterparts. Here’s a list of some great k-beauty dupes for you to consider when building your own skincare routine.

It’s also important to note that there can be a very fine line between a proper ‘dupe’ and a copycat product, so all of the products discussed here are proper dupe – whether it is a similar product type or formulation. Copycats are fully excluded!

Review: Artemisia Treatment Essence Mist & Calming Point Masks (Missha)

Time Revolution Artemisia Collection 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 Missha Time Revolution range is easily one of their cult favourites – in fact, their original First Treatment Essence has been much raved about as an affordable alternative to the SKII Facial Treatment Essence (and honestly, I don’t know what higher compliment a brand could possibly receive). Since then, they have also released their Artemisia Treatment Essence. Both of these branch away from the FTE formula to prove that Missha’s skincare stands strong, not just as a ‘high end dupe’ but as an original product.

The two products that I’ll be reviewing today are part of the Artemesia line – the Artemisia Treatment Essence (Mist Type) and the Calming Point Masks.

If you’re keen to shop these, head on over to StyleKorean where you can shop the entire Artemisia collection, including:
