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.
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.
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 (^-^)/
