Review: it Radiant CC Cover Cushion (Banila Co x Iphoria)

Banila Co iPhoria it Radiant CC Cover Cushion Review

I’ll be honest, I completely splurged at Banila Co because I am so excited about Taeyeon being their new model. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge (and probably embarrassing) fan of hers – and SNSD, of course. Prior to this, I had never actually never used anything from them, not even their super famous Clean it Zero cleansers. However, I think I’ve stocked up on a pretty good variety to get a good feel for their brand (and figure out their strengths and weaknesses).

So here I go with my first Banila Co review! This is a cushion that I wanted as soon as the collaboration came out. Of course, this desire was only further augmented with Taeyeon’s photoshoot came out. This is from their collaboration with Iphoria, a super quirky accessories brand and comes with four different cases. The refills are interchangeable – they are previously existing Banila Co formulas, so it is really only the packaging that’s different.

Review: Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack (Innisfree)

Innisfree Wine Jelly Sleeping Pack

Honestly, I did not walk into Innisfree with the intention of buying much and yet, the longer I spent in the store, the more and more I found I wanted to try new products. I start off thinking that I would buy a large size of the volcanic clay mask (which I did) and ended up with an entire basket full – in fact, I think I still ended up spending the most out of three of us and I didn’t usually use many of Innisfree products. In the end, I realised that I’m simply a sucker for anything that feels hydrating and smells good. I’m easily bought over.

This one is a sleeping pack that was recommended to me by a sales lady in Edae (she was the best, to be honest). Initially, I wasn’t planning on buying it because I felt that the wine scent was too strong but, after around ten minutes, I realised that I was addicted to smelling it. I ended up purchasing both the sleeping pack and the peeling gel; they were very affordable too.

After some (very fun) testing, I’m now ready to do the review! So read on to find out my thoughts.

Review: Dailism Serum Rogue (Heimish)

Heimish StyleKorean Review Kbeauty Dailism Serum Rogue

Everything that I have tried from Heimish so far has totally blown me away, so I’m pretty happy to finish off this series of reviews with two of their serum rogue lipsticks. Though their products aren’t cheap, they are far from expensive (and are actually pretty affordable), have excellent pigmentation and very pretty packaging – which is often a deal breaker for me.

Heimish as a brand has a modern and chic style, focusing on make up styles that are simple and easy to use for all. The attention is on the wearer (you), instead of the actual product. Their ‘No More Normal’ mantra is about makes you stand out – not them. In this sense, I think that Heimish has a very unique approach to make up and it definitely reflects in their range.

The following lipsticks were sent to me for review by StyleKorean. From memory, not many stores are stocking Heimish yet (as they are not a roadshop brand) so definitely check them out if you’re interested in any of this. You can also check out my previous review of their eyeshadow palette and waterdrop tint.

Review: Dailism Waterdrop Tint (Heimish)

Heimish StyleKorean Review Kbeauty Dailism Waterdrop Tint

I love this lip tint. I honestly don’t even know how else to begin this review except for that. I’ve been carrying it in my bag almost religiously so I’ve been using it almost every day – it’s pretty much replaced the old (and now scratched) lip tint that I have from The Face Shop. I brought this to Korea with me, as I did the eyeshadow palette, and I have this one to thank for saving me every time my lips went dry – which was often.

This one is also from Heimish’s Dailism collection and is called their waterdrop tint – most likely a reference to the droplet shaped applicator. It is a lip stain and, in accordance to the Heimish brand, is meant to be easy to use, wearable and also distinctive. The formula is a bit creamy (like a gel) and is said to contain rose hip seed oil extract – keep lips soft and hydrated too.

Read on for my review! This, along with the other Heimish pretties that I’ve been reviewing, have been sent to me for review by StyleKorean and is available for USD$11.77 (full price is USD$13.08) so remember to check them out!

Review: Dailism Eye Palette (Heimish)

Heimish StyleKorean Review Kbeauty Dailism Eye Palette Cozy Coral

I was originally going to do a haul post of the Heimish products that I recieved from StyleKorean to review, but because I ended up flying off to Seoul soon after, that post was never written and, instead, I ended up really testing out these products. I can put up the haul post if people want, but I was planning on using the same images anyway and I feel like it’s more important for me to talk in depth about the products.

Without further ado, here’s my review for the Heimish Dailism Eye Palette in Cozy Coral. This is actually the palette that I took with me to Korea and, aside from my new matte orange shadow, I used this almost exclusively and can officially state that I love it. I would definitely make this my go-to travel palette because I find the colours really versatile, buildable and the packaging light and sturdy.

Let’s go into a bit more detail.
