3CE Mood Recipe Multi Eye Color Palette #Overtake

Korean eyeshadows aren’t exactly known for their intense pigments. I wouldn’t say they are inferior in quality compared to Western makeup, but a difference in cultural preferences is a more likely factor. Korean eyeshadow looks are more than often a light wash of colour with a ton of shimmer rather than the pigmented smokey eyes we’re used to. There are however exceptions to that rule that showcase that South-Korea is indeed very capable of producing eyeshadows that pack a punch if they want them to. 3CE (or 3 Concept Eyes) by Stylenanda is one of those brands. Loved by teens and millennial alike, this mid-range brand has recently been acquired by L’Oréal and is ready to take the world by storm. Today I’ll be reviewing one of the star products from the Mood Recipe line, the 3CE Multi Eye Color Palette in #Overtake. View Post

Too Cool For School Pumpkin Sleeping Pack

too cool for school pumpkin sleeping pack

Last Halloween I posted a review of the TCFS Pumpkin 24K Gold Mask, this year I’ve had a closer look at the popular Too Cool For School Pumpkin Sleeping Pack. For those unfamiliar with k-beauty and its sometimes confusing terms; a sleeping pack or mask is a moisturizer you apply at the very last step of your skin care routine before you go to bed. The Pumpkin line is a very popular one for Too Cool For School, and the Pumpkin Sleeping Pack plays a big part in that success. View Post

Clarins Ombre Cream-To-Powder Eyeshadow

When it comes to eyeshadow, I’m a big magpie. The result of collecting makeup over the years is an absolute abundance of shimmery and glittery eyeshadows. Now that I’m older and more experienced in makeup, I definitely value matte shadows more than I once did. They’re absolute essentials when it comes to blending shades together and defining the crease. To complete my collection I went on a hunt for some nice matte shadows and found the Clarins Ombre Eyeshadows. View Post

Holika Holika Naked Face Fitting BB

The Holika Holika Naked Face Fitting BB is one of the K-beauty items I brought back from Japan. It was one of the Shin-Okubo (Koreatown in Tokyo) store clerks that brought this product to my attention. I did not need another BB cream, yet the simple matte glass bottle intrigued me and I really wanted to try a dewy formula. At the time those were pretty hard to find over here since all everyone could talk about was matte face, matte lips, matte everything. Thank god those days are behind us. Yay dewy skin! View Post

Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb

Belif was one of the first k-beauty brands to hit Sephora (US) and make waves thanks to the Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb. Now that the brand is available at Sephora France, I thought it was about time I shed a light on this special moisturizer. First off, this cream is just one of the 2 star moisturizers by the brand; the Aqua Bomb is for normal to oily skin and the Moisturizing Bomb is for normal to dry skin types.  View Post

Treets Traditions Pure Serenity

Treets Traditions is a relatively new Dutch beauty brand whose product ranges revolve around ancient traditions found all over the world. Sounds familiar no? An added bonus is that its products are free of SLS, SLES, parabens, silicones, colourants and mineral oils. I have been testing some products of the Tweets Traditions Pure Serenity range, which was inspired by the Japanese onsen (bathing) culture. View Post
