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: Better Than Palette in Pampas Garden and Mahogany Garden (Romand)

Romand Better Than Palette Kbeauty Makeup Review - Pampas Garden and Mahogany Garden

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’m actually consciously trying to spread out my Romand reviews but, to be honest, I’ve just completely fallen in love with this brand. Every time they release something new, it’s on my radar right away and I can’t relax until I’d gotten my hands on them. That’s exactly what happened with this one! I saw the Better Than Palette being teased on Instagram a week or do before the launch, so I’d been waiting for it – and now it’s here!

All of these are now available at StyleKorean for USD$23.10 (on sale from USD$33) so absolutely jump onto there if you want to pick these up! If the full 10 shade palette is a bit much for you, Romand also do wonderful quads (currently USD$14.40 and on sale from USD$18) called the Better Than Eyes.

I’ll be reviewing and sharing some swatches from the Pampas Garden and Mahogany Garden palette today so if they’re the ones you’re keen on… let’s get into it!

Review: Beach Muse Multi Eye Colour Palette (3CE)

StyleKorean 3CE Beach Muse Eye Palette 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.

Eyeshadow palettes are a personal weakness of mine and, when it comes to kbeauty make up, I really can’t pass up on 3CE! Created by the fashion brand Stylenanda, 3CE is especially well known for their colour cosmetics – their style is quite experimental so they often have very glittery or bright formulas which are harder to find in other brands. I’ve been a fan of their eyeshadows ever since I discovered their One Colour Eyeshadows, where they have pretty much the best matte orange that I have ever found in Korea, so I have a lot of confidence in their formulas.

The main criticism that I’ve had in the past has been the price point – however, this is much improved! The Beach Muse Multi Eye Colour Palette (which I will be reviewing today) is selling at StyleKorean for USD$31.90 (discounted from USD$45.60). It’s still more expensive than other Korean roadshop brands but, with a great formula, solid colour scheme and a strong brand image, I think that the premium price point makes sense.

If you want to get your hands on this palette, or anything else from 3CE really, pop on over to StyleKorean! But before all of that, 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!

Ready for the review? Let’s get into it!

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!

Review: Cushion, Whenever (Dear Klairs)

Dear Klairs Cushion Whenever Kbeauty Makeup Review

This product was sent to me by Wishtrend 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.

I haven’t been wearing foundation much in the past few months which explains why this review is so delayed. However, I really was interested in trying out this Dear Klairs cushion because it has a pretty interesting concept – and I feel like a lot of people would be interested in this.

The Cushion, Whenever is essentially a cushion compact foundation which comes with two different puffs, one for daily use and one with a higher coverage finish. The main selling point of this product is versatility – it is intended to be a product that you can use anytime and for every occasion. It is available at Wishtrend for USD$37 (or USD$20 for a refill), though is out of stock at the time of writing – it will likely be restocked in the new year though, and they are always running great sales, so definitely check out their website.

But before all of that, let’s get into this review!

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!

Review: Prism Air Palette (CLIO)

CLIO Prism Air Eyeshadow Palette 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.

I am totally weak for eyeshadow palettes and pretty packaging, so what am I supposed to do when the two of those come together? Obsess and get my hands on it, of course!

This is the Prism Air Palette from CLIO, and it has been all over the kbeauty community since its release. Their brand concept is to bring make up artist quality products to a street shop price point, so it’s all about high pigmentation, longevity and cool-girl packaging. Also, Peripera is their sister brand and they arguably do the best Korean lip tints ever – so that’s ’nuff said.

This palette is currently available at StyleKorean for USD$27.30 (on sale from USD$45.60) and also comes in two colour variants – Coral Sparkle and Pink Addict. I’ll be reviewing the Pink variant but definitely check out their website if you’d like to see any other offerings from CLIO.

So, let’s jump into this review!
