Rilakkuma x A’PIEU Series Part 2!

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.

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!~

Aprilskin (에이프릴스킨) Review

Aprilskin (에이프릴스킨) Magic Snow Cream & Cushion (화이트) Review

Today I want to introduce my new favorite products: the Aprilskin Magic Snow Cream and the Aprilskin Magic Snow Cushion (White)!

Honestly, Facebook really got me with it’s advertising here. Everytime I was checking my timeline I saw the ads of Aprilskin (에이프릴스킨) with their beautiful girls using some products in it. Since I am always interested in makeup, I was watching their advertising and soon visited their page to find out where I could buy it. Except for their online shop I couldn’t find any offline shop. The price was quite high so I was looking at the brand stores around here, but no. Someday I checked their facebook user posts and someone was having the same problem haha. They replied that some of their products are only selled in Olive Young in Myeongdong . So… I went there and actually found something! Yay! (´∇ノ`*)ノ (I now saw they have even more products in stock now…TT-TT). If you walk around there, you could take a look. I can’t order on the internet yet because of my lack of korean *cough* and the main reason is because I don’t have a korean phone number yet. Somehow you need it, wheresoever you want to order something.

I had a massive allergic reaction again in my face and had to wait for my skin to soothe again. Since I am in Korea I am way more sensitive and it happened two or three times that I had a reaction to makeup in here. I guess it is one of my Etude House Cushions.. But finally I got to try two of the Aprilskin (에이프릴스킨) products and don’t want to keep my impressions from you!

First as always the packages~

As you can see the cushion is similar to most of the cushion makeups other brands sell. I just noticed, that the amount of products coming out of the cushion is way more than for example when I used my Etude House Precious Mineral Cushion one. I think this is really good because I don’t need to press the pad on the cushion for a hundred times.

I first used the Aprilskin (에이프릴스킨) Magic Snow Cream and after that I used my Aprilskin (에이프릴스킨) Magic Snow Cushion (White). As you may guess there is a Black one as well, which is as I know for oily and combination skin, the white one is for dry skin and is therefore very moisturizing. Since the water in korea contains chlorid for hygenic reasons my skin is very very dry and sensitive to environmential influences. I chose the White Cushion because of this reason.

The Aprilskin (에이프릴스킨) Magic Snow Cream is as well moisturizing and I was really surprised how strong the whitening effect was. I was of course expecting it, but how white my face was could be seen when I just applied it on one part of my face!

Aprilskin (에이프릴스킨) Magic Snow Cream

My Skin feels smooth and hydrated after using it. But it just whitens the skin and doesn’t really brighten or balancing dull areas such as the dark circles under the eyes. If I would just use the cream and go out I would surely get asked if I am a vampire or zombie haha. A living corpse maybe?

Next step: The Aprilskin (에이프릴스킨) Magic Snow Cushion (White)

Just in case you never used a cushion makeup foundation or BB, you press the sponge on the cushion and some of the product will be squeezed out and you can apply it on your face with the sponge or pad.

Here you can see the coverage by my freckles on my cheek:

Aprilskin

Sorry for my bad skin but it was right after my allergy calmed down a little and I had too less sleep these weeks. Still you can see in here that the coverage is quite high and the product is very moisturizing as my skin appears shiny. It is just a hint from being to yellow for my skin and is somehow balancing the white cream under it. The reason why I like this cushion is that it doesn’t dry out my skin after a while as most of my bbcreams and foundations do. Also combined with the Snow Cream it is not running in my lines and lid though. It says it is moisturizing and it really does moisturize the skin. If you have oily skin I don’t recommend this cushion and would try the black cushion instead.

I heard from a friend that this product got many bad reviews from Korean customers but I can not agree with it. For me this is the first product in a while that doesn’t let my skin hyperventilate by giving me a terrible allergic reaction like I recently got when I tried for example Etude House products. Plus it seems to keep all its promises, Aprilskin is promoting it with. The product is not a miracle cure. But for me it brings some good features with positive impacts. It is of course not the cheapest brand but still I prefer to use things I know I can use without worries.

Aprilskin (에이프릴스킨) Magic Snow Cream Review

 

What I love:

  • The Effect – Whitening, moisturizing effect given!
  • The Comfort – Feels like a facial moisturizing cream, light but not watery.
  • As a Base it’s smoothing your skin and makes your makeup more longlasting!

What I hate:

  • Kind of expensive..
  • For too fair skin types I advise to not use it as it may make you looking sick.
  • If you’re not an online-shopper you will have to visit one of the Olive Young Stores in Myeongdong, which is, depends on where you live, can be a long way to get it.

I guess after I used it, I will be willing to buy it again, but I guess it will depend on my financial state that time haha. So far I have no allergic reactions to it, which means there aren’t any weird chemical ingredients in it, but I am not 100% sure about it. It is moisturizing and whitening, if I need more coverage and my makeup to stay longer, this is defenitely my first step.

Aprilskin (에이프릴스킨) Magic Snow Cushion White

 

What I love:

  • The Effect – Moisturizing and not drying out the skin after a few hours.
  • The Coverage – Makes my skin looking almost flawless even on pictures without using any filter!
  • The Comfort – My skin feels hydrated and not dry. A minus point may be that it could feel a little sticky, depends on your skins condition.
  • The Cushion – I love this kind of makeup recently because it’s handy and easy to use! The products comes out of the cushion just by slightly pressing the sponge on it. Also the case includes a mirror!

What I hate:

  • The Price – I can’t decide weather it’s cheap or expensive. I have other products, that are a little cheaper but then also the quality is a little less good than the Aprilskin cushion.
  • The Purchase – Same as the Cream, you also have to order it online or go all the way to Myeongdong!

I don’t know yet how long it will last, but if it lasts like more than 3 months then the price is totally fine I guess. I came to the same compromise with my Sans Soucis Facial Cream it is even arounf the same price and almost lasts until after 3 months. It even became a product of my facial skin care routine I can’t live without anymore haha. I hope the Aprilskin (에이프릴스킨) Magic Snow Cushion White can do an even better job!(*^▽^*) I will probably try to order products from their website they don’t sell in Olive Young. (Tip for ordering from their website: they have an english website as well ;) )

And as always, here my look with the two products:

Innisfree Eco Flower Tint Nr. 1 Camellia

Innisfree Eco Flower Tint Nr. 1 Camellia Review for you!

Hihi! This time I’m back with a really incredible product you will defenitely wanna try, too! The Innisfree Eco Flower Tint! Thanks to my korean friend Seojung, who came to visit us in germany during the holidays last year, I got to now about this nice lip tint. I got it as a present, and I am really really happy~ Thank you dear, I love it so much!! <3

First thing I will say about it is: This lipt tint is almost as good as the Etude House Dear Darling Tint I reviewed last year. It is my absolute favorite when it comes to lip tints, because it’s the most long-lasting tint I own. And the Innisfree Eco Flower Tint is about to beat the Nr. 1! So if I may have your attention now? Innisfree Eco Flower TintMy precious presents! So cute!!
The Kitty thing is a comb and mirror in one!

Innisfree Eco Flower Tint

I guess you already know: Above I’m wearing just a bit of concealer and below I applied the Innisfree Eco Flower Tint once. I filled my whole lip with it, what I usually don’t do.^^

The Innisfree Eco Flower Tint in Nr. 1 Camellia:

What I love:

  • The Color – Nice bold pink perfect for a cute and cheeky look!
  • The Quality – High pigmentation, I mean that’s what I think.
  • The Comfort – Not sticky, not heavy, but you feel wearing something. Just right.
  • Long-Lasting – Almost as long-lasting as the Etude House Tint – I said before.

What I hate:

  • there’s actually nothing in particular that I dislike, but if you don’t wait until it’s dry, it can fade easily.

So I would buy another one if I knew the price wouldn’t be too high. I really like this lip tint. I’m wearing it every two days or so. I guess to have it in other colors would be a good thing.

Innisfree Eco Flower Tint

Here I am wearing the lip tint! ^_^

Innisfree Eco Flower Tint

I used the Aillis Star filter so it looks a bit bolder than it looks like in the pictures above^^

Hope you enjoyed my little review today! Would be a pleasure to welcome you again!

Ulzzang Inspired Look!

Ulzzang Inspired Look!

Hi! Today I want to introduce my ulzzang inspired look to you! Some may have seen my Instagram and will notice, I was wearing this makeup quite often. Many people asked me what I am using for this look, that I decided to do a quick tutorial about the look! Click the link for the Tutorial! Find the products I used in this Blogpost! <3

 >>>>Click here to see my Ulzzang Inspired Look Video Tutorial!

My Look:

Ulzzang Inspired Look

Closer look:

Ulzzang Inspired Look

First of all you have to know, that I am not a makeup artist and my intention wasn’t to create asian eyes. This is why I call this look “Ulzzang Inspired Look”.

As you may know, “Ulzzang” or sometimes spelled “Uljjang” is a korean word and means something like “best face” oder “perfect face”. So the focus stands on flawless skin and cute puppy eyes. When I was wearing this makeup some people commented me like “You look so… asian today”. Haha I guess this is a makeup trend that really represents korean beauty lol..

For me it is nearly impossible to get the perfect flawless skin because of my freckles and my dark circles, but I tried to hide it as much as I can. The thing is to look flawless but natural the same time. I prefer using asian products for this look, because, I don’t know why, but every time I use a foundation or bb cream I bought here in germany, it looked cakey and not natural. I guess because korean cosmetic companies focus on that combination of natural but flawless theory, their makeup is the best for creating this look.

Also I would recommend to use circle lenses with this look. I am wearing my darkest brown lenses to imitate cute and big puppy eyes. Also my skin looks lighter and more flawless with a dark brown eye color. But if you are not used to wear circle lenses, I think you shouldn’t force yourself to wear them.

Usually you don’t have to wear false lashes, I often see the models not wearing any falsies, but also you can wear some natural looking ones. I would recommend some like the Etude House Longlash 02, that I reviewed in one of my last posts.

The products I used:
  • Circle Lenses: Geo Magic Color Lens Big Grang Grang Choco
  • Mint Makeup BaseEtude House Baby Choux Base in Mint Choux
  • Concealer: Chanel Correcteur Perfection
  • Foundation: TonyMoly BCDation in #01
  • Powder: Skin79 BB Sunprotect Beblesh Pact
  • Eyeshadow Base: TonyMoly Crystal Stick Shadow in 03 Champaign Pink
  • Eyeshadow: Etude House Look at my Eyes Café in #BE102 (beige) and Etude House Look at my Eyes #BR402 (shimmery brown)
  • Eyeliner: ISEHAN Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Liner in Deep Black
  • Mascara: TonyMoly Delight Circle Lens Mascara in 01 Volume Black
  • Liptint: Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint in RD301 Cherry Red
  • Blush: Etude House Cookie Blusher in Strawberry Choux
