Another year has gone by and it’s time for another mini review of all the K-beauty products I’ve bought and tried for myself this year! In a bid to save while shopping, I bought all of these products during sales periods on official platforms such as Shopee and Guardian. As with all things, your experience with these products may vary from mine. Read on to know my thoughts about these products!
Cell Fusion C Clear Sunscreen 100 Twin Pack, $44.90
I recently learnt about the Cell Fusion C brand when I was looking for a new sunscreen to try. As I’ve acne-prone skin, I got the Clear Sunscreen as it seemed to be the most suitable for my skin type. This is a tinted sunscreen so it’s great for lazy days, but it will only work on those with fair to light skin. I had high hopes for this sunscreen but was left feeling slightly disappointed. Wearing this sunscreen on my face (with no other makeup on) seemed to make my face look even oilier throughout the day even though this is supposedly suitable for those with oily skin, so this is a miss for me.
CLIO Pro Eye Palette in 02 Brown Choux, $49.90
I’ve seen the CLIO Pro Layering Eye Palettes all over Instagram for quite some time now and the immense popularity of these palettes has led the brand to expand its offerings, adding more variations of these palettes. The one in 02 Brown Choux makes for a good daily palette and I really like the colour combination. The glitters and shimmers are also pretty and pigmented! As the shades were warmer than expected, this is a palette that’s more suitable for those who enjoy using warm eyeshadows.
PERIPERA Ink V Shading in 01 Almond Brown, $17.90
After seeing Korean makeup artist Pony use this product in one of her videos last year, I’ve been meaning to get my hands on this product for a while. I like this product and find that it works well for a natural-looking, subtle shading effect. It’s also quite affordable so that’s a huge plus!
I’m From Mugwort Essence, $56.60
It’s my first time trying anything mugwort and this was a pleasant surprise. It’s no wonder there are so many great reviews of this online. It has a very lightweight, watery consistency with a slight herbal smell. This did help soothe my skin and reduce the redness on my face. I love this and it’s definitely worth a repurchase!
Available at Shopee.
Rom&nd Better Than Cheek in 03 Blueberry Chip, $18.90
This blush is extremely small and compact, about the size of my palm. It’s very affordable during sales period (I got mine at $11.90 from the official Virvici store on Shopee) and with its compact size, you can easily hit pan on this small-sized blush. The downside is it’s not very pigmented and there’s quite some fallout when picking up the product with a brush.
