Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Honey & Milk Lip Care

Rilakuma x A’PIEU Honey & Milk Lip Care Products!

Hello everyone! I am back with new products! A’PIEU just launched a new range of the cute Rilakkuma x A’PIEU products and of course I was right there when they opened two days ago! I already tried some of the products already! I wrote this post with my app so no cute pixel pics 。゚(゚´ω`゚)゚。

The main point of this series is lip care! 6 of their products are lip products. I got the Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Honey and Milk lip balm, scrub and sleeping pack and the set of 3 hand balm and 3 shades of the lip tints. All the packages are so cute!

Rilakkuma x A'PIEU
Today I will write something about the three lip care products! 

As you may noticed, the lip care products have all the Rilakkuma as a Bee motives on it so you can guess what it smells like!
Rilakkuma x A'PIEU
The products smell slightly sweet, I would say like honey! Since the weather is so cold my lips are so dry and I warmly welcomened these products! I tried all of the products once (since I just got them yesterday) and I think they have some potential to become my new favorite products for my lip care!

First I tested the lip scrub. I actually only tried lip scrub in my life because I always had small injuries after using it and it was rather harmful for my sensitive skin on my lips than helpful. You apply it on your lips and massage the scrub onto them. After a while you wipe it off or use lukewarm water and get soft lips. I just used it for a few seconds and after I removed the scrub my lips were rosy red and soft. I don’t know yet what will be the long term effect but for rosy and slightly fuller lips the scrub is actually not bad. What makes the difference to other lip scrubs? I guess just the package.


I applied the lip balm right after and first I noticed the sweet gentle smell of honey. Just a light hint of honey, not too sweet as most of the fragranced lip balms tend to. The lip balm is clear, more solid and not too fatty, the case of accidentally putting on too much balm can’t happen with this one. I like how light it feels while it’s giving moisture.

Rilakkuma x A'PIEU
The sleeping mask has to be on your lips -as the name says – while you sleep, applied before you go to bed. I used it for one night and when I woke up the product was all gone and I wonder if it is my fault by sleeping on my tummy with my face in the pillow or if my lips absorbed all the product. In this case the result would be very negative. My lips were quite dry today and I have some painful cracks on my lips. The cold weather harms my lips and I really need some cure for it! I will give it another chance and will use it again tonight and hope I will not smudge it in my pillow this time. Also I actually were asking myself what is the difference between putting on this sleeping mask and using lip balm before going to bed.

Rilakkuma x A'PIEU
All the products are really cute and not too expensive, but if you are really taking care of what you get for how much money then you can probably find cheaper and better quality ones. But if you like the honey smell and the cute Rilakkuma then I would at least recommend the lip balm as a must have in this collection! (╹◡╹)

Aprilskin Magic-Cara Mascara

Aprilskin Magic-Cara Mascara Review!

This time I’ll review the Aprilskin Magic-Cara Mascara that I got last time I visited Myeongdong. These days there’s a big hype about Aprilskin, especially because they opened their first offline store inside the Lotte Young Plaza in Seoul Myeongdong! Many people streamed there to be one of the first people to buy and get incredible discount at the shop. I visited right on their first days when they had a 50% discount offer and got me a few things from the brand. Btw I got a free mirror because I uploaded a picture of my visit on Facebook.


I actually just have one mascara I am using everyday (Dolly Wink) and I thought it’s time for a backup. So I decided to buy the mascara since it is was only 9.000 Won.

The Mascara comes with two brushes: one skinny side and one volume side. I totally dislike the skinny brushes because all I tried so far had no effect on my already quite long black lashes. But this mascara has a volume brush too, so I thought if I don’t like this brush as well I can at least use the volume brush. But it should become my new favorite mascara including the skinny brush!


The Aprilskin Magic-cara is not waterproof and can be removed easily. It stays all day if you don’t rub your eyes or wash your face. I love to wear it for both, day and evening makeup. The It should be applied in two easy steps: 1. use the skinny side for elongate your lashes and define them. Also your lashes stay seperate eventhough you use the volume brush in the 2. step. Also, you can reach the inner smaller lashes and also – if you have round eyes like me – the outer angled lashes. Then as mentioned, the 2. step is the volumizing brush that gives a fuller look. If you want to go for a clear and defined look you can just skip the second step.


I think the Aprilskin Magic-cara is a really good product regarding the price. Sometimes the lashes stick together, especially if I am in a hurry I just quickly apply it, but honestly, is there any volume brush that is perfectly separating the lashes while giving volume? I didn’t find that mascara yet.

Aprilskin Magic-cara Review

What I love:

  • The Quality – Two brushes, two options and a good quality compared to the price
  • The Price – On sale definitely even one of my cheapest mascaras!
  • The Effect – Finally I got volume on my lashes without using falsies!

What I hate:

  • Not Waterproof – I wish they had a waterproof option, too
  • Sticky – Sometimes lashes stick together, but thats not a big problem

Besides my Dolly Wink Mascara the Aprilskin Magic-cara became my favourite mascara for looks with fuller lashes but without false lashes. This product is definitely one I’d say it is really worth its money. And if the ad is true, it is even a product with natural ingredients. (Aprilskin’s slogan is “Solution from Nature”). If you want to buy one but live overseas you can buy one on their website!

I already used it for a while now and created a lot of looks with it.


Thank you for reading! If you need to buy a new mascara – that was my recommendation! See you next time!

Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Series Part 3!

Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Series Part 3 Review!

This review includes:

  • The A’PIEU Skinny Mascara Rilakkuma Edition No. 1 Long Lash
  • The A’PIEU Nail Color & Sticker Set Rilakkuma Edition


I was so happy when I saw that they are continuing their collaboration with Rilakkuma and his friends and of course I went to the store to get my products! Let’s start with the Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Skinny Mascara in No. 1 Long Lash.

Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Skinny Mascara Long Lash

Actually when I saw it the first time I was not very impressed by the packaging because it’s just yellow and I am actually not a fan of this color.. It’s too bold for me haha. But anyway don’t judge by appearance, right? lol


The brush is one of these “skinny” brushes that are said to apply the mascara without sticking the lashes together like glue and make it look overloaded.

Actually I didn’t see any big difference. I got darker and a tiny little longer lashes but since I already have black longer lashes it gave barely any effect. Sorry I didn’t eat makeup in my picture only the mascara and no lenses this time..


While applying it I felt like there was no product on the brush after one stroke. Like the brush doesn’t carry enough mascara.

Also after a long day outside and probably some accitential eye-wiping I had the feeling that there was barely any mascara left of my lashes because the end of them became a little blonde as they are naturally.

The Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Skinny Mascara Long Lash Review:

What I love:

  • The Price – it’s very cheap

What I hate:

  • The Design – just this yellow it not my style
  • The Effect – I’m missing it
  • The Quality – after a few hours the product is gone

I will not buy it again. It’s cheap, yes but I would rather save the money for a better one.

The Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Nail Color & Sticker Set

The Nail Color Set includes a sticker sheet and three nail colors in yellow, beige and brown, like the three San-X friends. With this set you can create the typical “face” look on your nails like I did or just create other rilakkuma themed nail art.

The colors are nice and bold and dry quickly but there is a twist. Especially the yellow and brown color leave a yellow stain on the nails and it looks like you have some sickness. I forgot to take a picture of my nails when I removed it, but you can imagine that it’s the same with red nail color without a base under it.


Rilakkuma x A'PIEU
Omg sorry these messy nails haha I didn’t think it was that bad when I took the photo..

So, when I was visiting again they sold another version of the nail color set – I bought it out of curiousity (without reading what’s inside) to see if it’s different from the first version. This time the set includes a milky moisturizing fluid, brown color and transparent topcoat nail laquer and a sheet of stickers. So its actually completely different from the first.

Rilakkuma x A'PIEU
The milky fluid (Nail Mate Nail Moisture) smells fruity and is a treatment you apply on the nail and skin and massage it until it’s absorbed. For color you have actually only one option: Brown (Glow Nail Touch). The color is similar to the first kit’s one. One time is enough to fully cover the nail without empty lines. It’s a nice choco brown I would also wear without the stickers during the colder months.

The top coat is actually not any special, it makes the coat sparkly like you just applied the color and keeps the sticker from falling off. So you should use the kit in 3 steps: Treatment, Color and Top Coat.

The Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Nail Color & Sticker Set Review:

The first kit:

What I love:

  • The Stickers – so cute and easy design!
  • The Price – 3 Colors and Stickers for 7.000 is actually pretty cheap

What I hate:

  • The Quality – The brown and yellow color leave a yellow stain! >.<

The second kit:

What I love:

  • The Stickers – same stickers, same designs
  • The Price – same price as the first
  • The included Products – I think the products in this kit are much better than the first, since it includes treatment, color and topcoat!

What I hate:

  • The Quality – The nail colors ares still no high quality nail colors^^

For both kits: I think if you are a huge fan like me of the cute little friends you should invest in the nail kit. I like the second one more than the first because I am not using the yellow color that often. I don’t know if it was my own fault, but when I tried to get the sticker off the sheet, it broke into two pieces.. So you should be careful and maybe use tweezers to apply it (I used my nails and fingers).

Many asked me where I bought the products and I was surprised how many Rilakkuma fans are out there! ^.^ Of course I will let you know!

I bought them at the A’PIEU stores in Seoul! There is one next to Ewha Womans University and one in Hongdae near Exit 9! Lately the products are available at Watson’s as well! If you are living overseas you can still get your Rilakkuma dose by ordering online!

Hope you love Rilakkuma as much as I do and have fun with the Rilakkuma x A’PIEU collaboration (^-^)/

Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Series Set 2

Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Series Part 2!

This review includes:

  • A’PIEU Water Light Tint Rilakkuma Edition
  • A’PIEU For Your Shadow Rilakkuma Edition

A little late but here’s the second part of my Rilakkuma x A’PIEU review! (^-^)/

This set is actually my favorite because I love to try new lip products and also I am still looking for new eyeshadows that I can use for a cute summer day makeup. I think I finally found something good here.

Rilakkuma x A'PIEURilakkuma x A'PIEU
The package is cute as ever! I love the design. I love to see so many rilakkumas everywhere on my makeup shelf. Of course the package is a big plus but let’s see the product itself!

Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Water Light Tint Review!

I bought three shades:  PK01, RD01 and CR01

The pink is a really cute rose pink shade, while the red is very bold and the coral is a really natural coral shade which reminds me of the Etude House Cherry Tint. The texture is more creamy and not as I expected it to be for a “water light” tint.



I took pictures how they look like on my lips, too:


As always I am sorry for the bad quality. I took them with my phone, I had no SD Card for my camera for a while so this had to be solution.

I love to wear them by just applying in the center and blend them outwards. Here’s my review:

Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Water Light Tint Review:

What I love:

  • The Colors – Pink, red, coral, orange, for everyone a fitting shade.
  • The Quality – long-lasting tint that’s isn’t sticky or dry.
  • The Price – good tint for less money!
  • The Design – of course, I love it

What I hate:

Nothing to complain (^O^☆♪

Rilakkuma x A'PIEU
Right after I applied the coral tint! I went to a near café and ordered my drink. I studied a while and drank my tea.


The tint is unexpected long lasting! It still was on my lips and shiny like I just applied it!

Did you notice my eye makeup? No? Well.. Then.. Ah still I will show it to you in the next review!

Rilakkuma x A’PIEU For Your Shadow in 3호!


Isn’t it even more cute? When I was at A’PIEU in Hongdae I couldn’t decide which shades I should buy. In the end I chose No. 3 and I don’t regret that decision! It was sold out in the stores after a week. The eyeshadow box includes 4 different shades, 3 in a rosy to bronze shiny shades and one in a matte red brown.

The shades are not high pigmented and usually I need to apply it repeatedly, but then the shadows blend very well.

Rilakkuma x A’PIEU For Your Shadow 3호 Review

What I love:

  • The Colors – cute rosy brown shades
  • The Price – good eyeshadow for less money
  • The Design – you can guess why :D

What I hate:

  • The Quality – not a high quality shadow quatro but okay for the price!


I’m not a makeup artist but I was satisfied with my work with the Rilakkuma x A’PIEU For Your Shadow. (^_^)


So that was the second part of my Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Review! I hope you are able to grab one of these special products! I am ready for the 3rd part of the Rilakuma x A’PIEU review, what about you? Follow me on Instagram for updates! (^ω^) hope to see you again soon~

Aprilskin Magic S Lipstick

Aprilskin Magic S Lipstick in Roxanne Tango and Fanny Pink!

Today I will review the Aprilskin Magic S Lipstick in RD101 (Roxanne Tango) and PK201 (Fanny Pink) I got a few weeks ago. I ordered them on their website because unlike the Snow Cushions you can’t find them in offline shops.

Actually I liked all of the shades they offer but since one of them is 16.000원 I just bought one and got another one for free.

Aprilskin Magic S LipstickAprilskin Magic S Lipstick
The upper one is PK201 Fanny Pink and the lower one is RD101 Roxanne Tango.

The texture of the lipstick is very creamy and gives moisture and blends very well on my lips. The lipstick has a light sweet smell. Since it’s a lipstick and not a tint that dries on your lips and so it doesn’t only stay on your lips, but you leave a pink or red lip print on your lovers cheek if you give him or her a kiss hihi. Here are the swatches:

Aprilskin Magic S Lipstick
I wore it a few hours and it was almost gone, just a hint of color. I reapplied it and after I ate dinner again the lipstick was completely gone. I forget to take a picture every time and when I do I don’t know which picture was for which review…. haha I’m such a messy head sometimes… But I can say, that this lipstick is really not one of the 12h lipsticks. You will eat and drink and reapply the lipstick after it.
The Aprilskin Magic S Line Lipstick Review:

What I love:

  • The Color – The colors are pretty and I love how bold it is after applying it once
  • The Texture – Love how my lips glow in red after applying the creamy lipstick
  • The Ingredients – If it keeps the promise as “solution from nature

What I hate:

  • Not longlasting – high pigmentation but not very longlasting
  • The Price – Quite expensive, but there are enough opportunities to get them cheap (like 1+1)

I like the brand and so I maybe buying it again before I leave Korea. If you are looking for a longlasting lipstick that will survive your evening event I recommend others. For a fresh day makeup this lipstick is definitely the right pick.

Here I am wearing the red one, but I guess because I applied just once and the light was very bright, it looks more like pink. I wonder when I will be able to make one proper review haha.. ㅠㅠ

So this was a short review about the Aprilskin Magic S Lipstick, I hope you could get at least some impressions of the product. If you are interested in the product, try to find them on their website: Aprilskin or their global website: Aprilskin.com.

Thank you for visiting! Next time I will upload the second part of my Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Review! See you again!~
