REVIEW: ARITAUM Real Ampoule Highlighter

aritaum real ampoule highlighter

I recently went on a makeup bag replacement binge, and swapped out my Watt’s Up highligher for the Aritaum real ampoule highlighter. The korean highligher reminds me of drawing markers, with a click button on the end.

While I thought the packaging was innovative, the product did not entirely amaze me. 😦

REVIEW: W.LAB Sebum Out Oil Control Mist

W.LAB Sebum Out Oil Control Mist

Hands up if you live in a hot & humid country. Hands up (again) if you have been actively looking for something to curb the 4-hour post-makeup oil slick.

That’s me, and I believe I am not sorely alone. I think I can safely say many girls will agree that finding a reliable oil control product is akin to sifting through a mountain of well, oil control products.

I have found a couple of saviours (like MUFE’s setting spray, UD’s de-slick) but those are fairly pricy. So in this post, I’m going to share about a more reasonably priced K-beauty oil control mist from W.Lab

REVIEW: Secret Key Angel Kiss Face Coating Cushion #23 Dark Angel

secretkey angel kiss face coating cushion #23

Season’s Greetings all! I can’t believe that 2017 is coming to a close, what a journey it’s been. While I am nowhere near exhausting my stockpile of beauty knick knacks, I found some time to write a review on the Secretkey Face Coating Angel Cushion in #23 Dark Angel.

I’ve had this sitting in my stash for a while, so I’m not too sure if this particular item is still available in the market. With my recent infatuation with Secretkey’s miracle fit concealer, I had pretty high expectations for the cushion in terms of coverage.

Now, I’m not sure if this cushion is the same as the Tattoo Cover Cushion (although I want to say it is), neither do I know if refills under the same brand fit universally across pacts.

Long story short, if this is indeed the same as the tattoo cushion, I say buy it. πŸ˜€

REVIEW: Japan Cow Brand Beauty Soap Moisturising (Red box)

Japan Cow Brand Beauty Soap Red

Today I’m going to talk about soap. Specifically, the Cow Brand Beauty Soap Kyoshinsha. The one I have is the red box, which is extra moisturising and costs a little bit more than the blue box, which is the regular formula.

I’ve long heard accolades about this bar soap, of it being gentle, no frills and generally good for your skin. Another perk was the price, the soap is inexpensive when compared to counterparts like shower foams and gels.

In short, after using the product for about 2 months, I’m a fan. I hoarded half a dozen of this from my recent trip back to Tokyo.

REVIEW: Skinfood Aloe Vera Foaming Cleanser

skinfood aloe vera foaming cleanser

Hi Everyone! It’s been a whirlwind in October. I travelled a bit, turned one year older, nursed a flu/cough, embarked on some side projects, and was busy with work.

I finally found some downtime today to write about the Skinfood Aloe Vera Foaming Cleanser I purchased a while back. While it’s still good to use, I’m not entirely sure if the packaging is relevant.

Regardless, please read on if you’re interested to know what I felt about this item.Β  πŸ™‚

REVIEW: Rue K Wave Action Melting Moisture Lipstick (OR206 Busking Orange)

Rue K Wave Action Melting Lipstick OR206 Busking Orange

Hi Everyone! Today I have a quick review on a brand which is new to me: Rue K Wave. I did some homework on the interwebs but didn’t manage to get much information, other than the fact that this is a Korean cosmetic brand.

Anyway, I purchased their lipstick from Qoo10 – the rue k wave action melting moisture lipstick. This comes with a range of 15 shades, I exercised some restraint and purchased only one, in the shade Busking Orange (OR206).

Read on for my first impression and how the lipstick fared. πŸ’„

REVIEW: Althea Petal Velvet Powder

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored review by Althea. All comments on the experience and first impressions of the product(s) are expressly mine, and not in any way influenced or paid for.

Hi Everyone! I recently had the pleasure of receiving Althea’s newest Petal Velvet Powder in the mail. Needless to say, Althea has been my favourite place to shop in 2017 and possibly more years to come.

It’s exciting to see how Althea has expanded and foraying into producing their own unique line of cosmetics. Debuting from the brand, the Althea Petal Velvet Powder is a micro fine loose powder that minimises the appearance of pores and fine lines, and at the same time controls sebum.
