Cons
This is a little pricey, depending on your budget. It’s much cheaper than a lot of other mascaras.

Nothing “wow-d” me about it.

Pros
It lasts all day.
This mascara has a nice, sleek tube.

The mascara gives a very natural look. It applies well without clumping, and it looks elegant.

It’s easy to take off with makeup remover.

I give this 4/5 stars.

BB Cream Chart (Lioele, Missha and Dr. Jart)

6 Jan

This post will show swatches, side by side, of different BB creams that I’ve already reviewed. I wanted to share an overview of the BB creams I have tried, so I will also tell you the main points about each one.

First off, here is a picture showing the four BB creams that I’ll discuss: Lioele’s Triple the Solution BB Cream, Missha’s Perfect Cover B.B. Cream (No. 21 and No. 23) and Dr. Jart’s BB Black Label.

Missha: Perfect Cover B.B. Cream (No. 21, No. 23)

26 Mar

Average retail online (20 ml): $8-13
Store retail (20 ml): ₩7,800 ($7.40)

I bought these BB creams from the Missha store. If you are a new customer, they generally give you a free gift with your first purchase. I originally just bought No. 23 (the darker shade), but they sent me No. 21 as a gift ^^

These are 50 ml (1.6 oz) tubes.

Since I got both, I like using No. 21 under my eye area as more of a concealer. I feel like it’s just a tad too light for my whole face. But, it changes to your skin tone a little, too.

Here is some of Missha’s Perfect Cover B.B. Cream. On the left is No. 21, the lighter shade, and on the right is No. 23, a darker shade.

I rubbed some of the Missha Perfect Cover B.B. Cream into my skin. On the left is No. 21, and on the right is No. 23.

This is the Missha Perfect Cover B.B. Cream rubbed in more. On the left is No. 21, and on the right is No.23. The colors change after a bit to match your skin tone better.

Cons
I was so excited to get this BB cream in the mail. But, when I eagerly opened the bottle and began pumping the tube, nothing came out. That was No. 23 — the shade I wanted the most. I tried pumping No. 21, and it worked fine. I ended up needing to mail the other bottle back, and they exchanged it for me, no problem. I don’t know how often that happens — I haven’t read about other people experiencing that problem, so I don’t know if you should worry about it too much.

It’s not as much coverage as I like, but it is the best out of the three BB creams I have. It’s definitely fine with some concealer.

It’s also important to note that BB cream isn’t meant to totally cover up everything. It’s best you already have really nice skin and want it even smoother looking — unfortunately, my skin isn’t that nice -,_- But I like how light weight it feels, so I prefer it over foundation.

For the sake of a review, here is me without any makeup on.

This is me with ONLY Missha Perfect Cover B.B. Cream (No. 23), and nothing else. I don’t put it on heavily. I put on one light layer over my face.

Pros
It smells like a perfume-y baby powder sent — it kind of reminds me of my grandma o_o You can’t smell it once it’s on though. I don’t know if this is a pro or con! The texture is a nice, light, creamy and almost fluffy consistency.

Despite the faulty pump, I really like it. My Dr. Jart BB cream comes in a tube and you just squirt it out, but I don’t like having some not come out that you touch with your finger then have it go back in the bottle. The Missha one is more hygienic! It’s also pretty easy to control the amount that squirts out.

Like I said, although it doesn’t give the best coverage, it’s still pretty decent. It does a nice job at evening out my skin tone. It’s not going to cover up red areas too well, but I just touch it up with some concealer.

Also, I haven’t noticed it breaking me out any more than I already do ^^ That’s a plus.

I would buy this again!

I give this a four out of five stars.

Missha: The Style Lucid Nail Polish (matte)

3 Mar

I don’t know why, but matte colors are so pretty. It makes colors look more pastel and softens the look. I didn’t even know matte nail polish existed, and then I found Missha’s!

Cons

I can’t think of one. I have noticed that sometimes if I put this on too soon before the color polish drys, it will make the color polish look streaky. Other than that, this is a great nail polish.

Pros

The bottle is shaped in a particular way that fits in your hand perfectly — one side of it bends inwards. I appreciate the fact that this nail polish drys really fast. Actually, it seems like the matte coat makes the nail polish beneath it dry faster, too. The other part I like about this packaging is the brush. The brush is somewhat flat, making it easy to apply a good layer evenly over your nail.

I used Missha's The Style Lucid Nail Polish (matte) on top of Koji's Dolly Wink nail polish (see the Koji polish review for a before photo).

I give this four out of five stars.
