Review: Ink Mood Matte Tint (Peripera)

Peripera Ink Mood Matte Tint Kbeauty Review

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

The only thing I’m more obsessed with than eyeshadow palettes, are lip products. I had a pretty huge collection even before I really got into beauty blogging and it’s only gotten worse (in a good way). I recently got my hands on the entire collection of the Ink Mood Matte Tints from Peripera, and there are some beautiful shades here!

For those who don’t know, Peripera is the sister brand of CLIO and they are well known for their lip products. Although I’m not sure about the release dates, it seems that the Ink Mood Matte Tint have been released to be alongside the Ink Mood Matte Stick – so anyone who likes a matte, feathered finish can find it in either formula.

You can check out the Ink Mood Matte Tints at StyleKorean for just USD$7.90 (on sale from USD$12) and, of course, read on for the full review and lip swatches.

Review: Baked Real Gel Nails (Edge U)

Edgeu Baked Real Gel Nails

I haven’t always been so dedicated about doing my nails. For the longest time, I was the girl with consistently chipped polished and misshaped nails – and I’m still like that sometimes. However, with the recent events and finding myself at home for months at a time, I came to really enjoy having my nails done! I have been experimenting with gel polishes and nail wraps, and came across a brand on StyleKorean that combines both of these. It was the first time that I’ve seen something like this so, naturally, my curiosity was piqued!

StyleKorean was generous enough to send over to me three different designs from the Edge U Baked Real Gel Nails, as well as an additional fourth design which I reviewed on my Instagram for their Try Me Review Me program. The designs that I’ll be reviewing here (with names as listed on the StyleKorean website to make it easier for you to search up) include:

  • Nail Egg Flower Heart Balloon
  • Nail Smile Check
  • Nail Coral Stone Blusher (currently out of stock)

Each of these are selling for USD$15 but they’re on sale too! All you need to make these work is a nail lamp and a gel top coat – both which you can also get from Edge U or use any that you already have at home. Optionally, you can also use a gel nail base to make these last longer but it isn’t really necessary.

If you’re keen to try these out, check them out at StyleKorean – they have both nail and pedicure designs to choose from. Before you do that though, read on and see how these look once applied too!

Review: Our Own Summer Pink Collection (Romand)

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

It’s summer time in Korea and, naturally, Romand came to us with the goods! The Our Own Summer Pink Collection is fairly compact, consisting of a brand new Better Than Eyes quad in Dry Strawberry as well as two new Juicy Lasting Tints (in Very Berry Pink and Pink Popsicle).

This collection was designed for those with a Cool Summer personal colour (which you can read more about here). The shadows have a natural, soft colour scheme that’s perfect for every day and the tints have a translucent formula that makes it super wearable for different skin tones and depths.

All of these are available at StyleKorean for a limited time only, so pop on over there if you want to pick them up – honestly, Romand is always worth it for me.

And now, let’s get into this review!

Feature: Charlotte Tilbury hits Aussie Shores (and we love it)

Charlotte Tilbury at Mecca Launch

Charlotte Tilbury Beauty has been one of the most in-demand brands for years. Founded by British make up artist Charlotte Tilbury, they are known for their easy-to-use, gorgeous make up products and scientifically backed skincare – all developed around Tilbury’s beauty secrets and 28 years of experience working in fashion, editorial, runway and the red carpet.

And now, they have finally hit Australian shores, exclusively through MECCA! Rather than having to guess foundation matches or watching a hundred review videos to figure out if a product will work for us, people are now able to try things in store or get a shade match from MECCA’s artistry team.

There’s been some fun in-store promotions as well as huge range now available on their website. For those who (like me) have never tried Charlotte Tilbury before and are unsure of where to start, read on for five of their best sellers!

Feature: 10 Gorgeous Make Up Products for Your Vanity

10 Gorgeous Make Up Products - Beauty Feature Article

Please note that referral and/or affiliate links are used in this post.

The beauty industry moves fast and there are new release products coming out almost every day. With the prominence of social media, it’s also impossible to deny how important packaging is. Whilst the actual formula and product is still the most important, you can’t have a successful product unless you’re nice to look at too! That’s my opinion anyway.

In this list, I’ll be sharing with you some gorgeous packaging and also why I love them (from both a designer and consumer perspective). Consider this a gift guide or even a shopping guide for when you’re wanting to make your next purchase.

As reference, I love packaging design that is unique, speaks well to the brand identity but is also practical and highly functional. So, don’t expect me to be listing pizza shapes eyeshadow palettes or chunky, cat paw lipsticks though – no one has the time (or vanity space) for that!
