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! (╹◡╹)

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~

Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Set 1

Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Series Review Part 1!

  • A’PIEU Air Fit Cushion Rilakkuma Edition in 21호
  • A’PIEU Air Fit Cushion Blusher Rilakkuma Edition in PK01 & VL01 (CR01 and CR02 in SNS if requested)
  • A’PIEU Korilakkumas Favorite Mud Fresh Cleansing Foam

These days I spent way too much money on makeup I actually don’t really needed but was a must to purchase! Right in front of our University a big window sticker was having my attention:

Rilakkuma x A'PIEU
Rilakkuma x A'PIEU
My favorite two things in life are finally combined in one: Makeup and Rilakkuma! (。♥‿♥。)

 

Sadly the products are limited and I hope I am not too late with my reviews, but maybe you have the opportunity to get some! You can get all the products also without Rilakkuma design at A’PIEU stores and some of the products are also available at WATSONS.

Rilakkuma x A'PIEU
I got almost all of  the products, but in the end it is just the A’PIEU products with a new cover so I didn’t buy colors I would never use (for example the brown blusher or the bright orange lip tint) and at some part I am glad I didn’t buy all even though I love Rilakkuma so much. But enough chatting let’s start with the A’PIEU Air Fit Cushion Rilakkuma Edition!

A’PIEU Air Fit Cushion Rilakkuma Edition!

As the main point in this makeup range, let’s take a look at the very cute packaging of the product! It’s a cute Rilakkuma lying on a cushion…! A cushion..haha.. on a cushion.. Sorry. ._. But look how cute it is!


The good thing is, there is a refill included! And the sponge is so cute!! Let’s see the inside!


The cushion is a little different to the Aprilskin cushion, you get much more product out of the cushion by pressing the sponge on it. I am the type of person who rather uses too much than too less so this cushion just fits me perfectly haha. Since it was the first time using a product from A’PIEU I was really excited about the quality.


Sorry for this very tired face ( I can’t sleep well these days) and towel turban haha.. As you can see the coverage is quite good and I feel no. 21 is just right for my summer skin. I applied it one time in the picture, I use to apply it once more to give more coverage (There is no filter in the picture btw). In my opinion, the cushion is also quite moisturizing, not as much as the Aprilskin Snow Cushion White, but it’s not drying out my skin without making it feel too sticky. I guess that’s what the Air Fit Cushion gives its name. It doesn’t feel like “Air” at all though.
Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Air Fit Cushion Review:

What I love:

  • The Design – for Rilakkuma lovers like me there is no excuse for not buying it
  • The Coverage – good for a natural makeup, if you want a flawless face for a night out I would not recommend this
  • The Price – I paid 13.000원 in total including the refill, so cheap!

What I hate:

  • Not very longlasting – I reapply it a few times during the day because the coverage gets less throughout the day

I would say this is a very good product for everyday use. It’s not too heavy, doesn’t feel too sticky, which is very annoying if you wear you hair lose and especially in summer very annoying. I don’t have that “airy” feeling, but it is still wearable. For the price it is totally fine to just buy it because it looks cute, since makeup is also some kind of accessory for us girls. (^_^)haha. Don’t waste your money like me.

Rilakkuma x A'PIEU
Sorry I didn’t find any picture without Sakura filter ㅠㅠ in the pictures I am wearing two layers of the Air Fit Cushion, so my freckles are more covered. Also the blusher I am wearing in here is a special one, which leads us to the next review~

Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Air Fit Cushion Blusher Review

The second item that was released was the Air Fit Cushion Blusher in 5 different shades. I just purchased 4 of it, because I wouldn’t use the brown shade anyway. From pink to violet all of them has another cover and here are the two I will review:

Rilakkuma x A'PIEURilakkuma x A'PIEU
Aren’t they cute?? Also it is the first time I am using a cushion blusher! In Germany you would never find something like that and so I was really excited to try them.

The cushion is similar to the Air Fit Cushion but smaller. I love how moisturizing it is when you apply it on your cheeks.

A’PIEU x Rilakuma Air Fit Cushion Blusher Review:

What I love:

  • The Price – I paid around 5.000원 which is ca. 4€
  • The Convenience – cute cheeks in seconds!
  • The Blush – gentle or bold shades for a cute look!
  • The Comfort – feels like air without the use of powder

What I hate: Nothing~ I am totally happy about this purchase.

In the end of the day I still have to say that if you don’t use primer and cuddle your bf for hours with rubbing your cheeks together of course the blusher will be gone after a while just like the Air Fit Cushion. But I love how easy it is to use and it’s so convenient for a quick morning routine. And I have the feeling the colors make my cheeks looking super cute! Hihi.


Haha yes both is me but with a day between the captures. In the upper picture I used the Pink Blusher and in the lower one I used the violet one.

Last one of this set is:

The Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Mud Fresh Cleansing Foam!

I saw that this product was sold out in many stores just after a few days :( but you can still buy it as the regular version.

I didn’t take any pictures while I am using it because it is too dangerous for my cameras to be in the bathroom and also you wouldn’t see much.

In my opinion the cleanser is as any other I tried before, refreshing and removing leftover makeup. I paid about 5.000원 and I think it’s a reasonable price for a cleansing product in here. And just look at the package, it’s saying buy me I’m cute!

Rilakkuma x A'PIEU

If you want to know more about the cleanser just comment or mail me in Facebook or Instagram.

That’s it for today~ next time I will introduce the second set of Rilakkuma x A’PIEU! So stay tuned ㅇㅅㅇ
