The lip product I am going to review today on the blog is no stranger in beauty world. This cute wine bottle shaped lip tint totally took the beauty world by storm last year. everyone was talking about it. It was featured in a lot of Korean dramas, online magazines, vlogs and blogs so naturally this caught my attention too. This Lip tint comes in both full size and deluxe size packaging. The reason i chose deluxe size was that i currently own over 30+ lip products ( may not seem a lot to you but for me that's way too many lip products) sitting inn my makeup stash waiting to be used up. So I decided to buy something I will easily finish off before it goes bad. Enough with my rant lets get onto the review

Packaging:
Even though its a deluxe product I have to laud the brand for placing it into a small cardboard box ( makes it look specially ). The liptint as you can see has a wine bottle packaging its so cute and tiny. the lid does not pop off like a champagne cork but us like any lip tint with a doe foot applicator 😊
Each liptint has a different color lid. The lid kind of represents the color of the tint inside
I love how this tiny tube holds 3ml of product and is tiny enough to be carried even in a coin πŸ‘.



There are lot of shades in the range(pink, orange, burgundy, red, peach etc)
About the product
This contains alcohol/wine by products so once you apply it onto the lips it gives a cooling feel ( alcohol evaporation =cooling)
The color is a beautiful neutral red. Unlike the dear darling tint i tried by etude house this has a very opaque coverage so this tint works more like a lipstick. The lasting power is great it lasts pretty well onto my lips. The application is not patchy at all. What I love about this tint is that it  applies evenly and wears off evenly too. But one thing bad about this is that it can be drying on the lips. I fix this problem by fist applying a layer of Lip. Balm n my lips amd then following a layer of lip tint of top that way i get sheer to medium coverage of the tint on my lips ( it looks pretty wearable during the day) and my lips font get cracked or look like dried up prunes by the end of the day. Since the tint sets up/ dries up pretty fast I suggest you to be extra careful when applying this liptint.


Overall I love this tint would definitely purchase more shades from the range
This mini/deluxe tint is priced at 3-4$ while a full size of this lip tint coats around 9-12$ depends on the store
Have you guys checked out my Instagram Feed I post reviews and updates on last skincare and makeup products there 😊






 if you ask me about my favourite skincare ingredient right now I am going to choose green tea 🍡 Can't stress enough how beneficial green tea is for oily skin. It soothes and calms the skin, prevents breakouts, and brightens skin.You might have noticed by looking through my instagram feed that i don't have stable skincare routine as i am always trying out new sheet mask or essence but one thing that i have achieved during my Korean skincare journey is that my skin looks so much healthier and glowy than before 

I have been using this Natural Pacific  Fresh Green Tea Seed Serum for sometime now and I am seriously sold by its performance.this serum contains 84% Camellia Sinesis Leaf Water and a whole bunch of oils. you can see the picture if you want to  know more about the ingredient list


 The vial is made out of matte glass and has a dropper cap. packaging wise this is bit of a nuisance as a single accident/ incident of dropping can smash the vial to pieces :( so this is only suited for our vanity table or skincare basket

The texture is thin and water like and smells so nice( this healed the cystic acne on my chin and hairline) It absorbs into the skin like a dream. My skin feels hydrated without that oily /greasy feel. I haven't noticed much brightening yet but this works great in terms of calming and moisturizing skin.

though it looks light green in the vial it imparts no color whatsoever onto the skin 

I usually use 6 drops of this on my face and use this (every night i am not testing a new product)  before going to bed. My skin texture has definitely improved with this serum.


This retails for 27$ on @stylekorean_globa and 12$ on althea

I have been eye makeup fixers for the longest time as the idea of my makeup lasting longer on my oily face sounds so tempting but there are very few makeup fixers that fall in my budget and deliver a matte finish
I was genuinely surprised and super happy when my blog selected by JOLSE to review this product


About the brand


Saat Insight  is a Korean makeup brand which manufacture luxury cosmetic products.


About the product:


Quantity: 100ml also available in 50ml

Price : 25 USD $


Packaging: The spray bottle is packed in a very beautiful pink and green marbled cardboard box inside the box there is a sturdy  white plastic bottle which has a black secure cap.the bottle has a very practical design its is  travel friendly, spill proof and shatter proof. The nozzle is good its dispenses the product evenly onto the face


My thoughts:


This makeup fixer has mild scent which disappears on  application. It's  clear  like
water and has a non tacky finish. I apply about 3-4 spritz of this on my face to set my makeup. What I have noticed that this makes my whole makeup look come together ( gives it a flawless finish) It also forms a light film which gives glow to the skin plus it reduces makeup from transferring onto other surfaces. I pressed a tissue paper only fave and was surprised to see that only a little amount of makeup / foundation transferred onto the tissue paper.
This makeup fixer does not have oil controlling properties thought nor does it claim to do so
I cant figure out the ingredients and its placement on CosDna website because the ingredients list is in Hangul (Korean) but from my experience this didn't break my skin out.
This retails for 25 $ on Jolse website link here

I rate this product 4/5 ❤


Thankyou Jolse for providing this product for review

Today I am going to review the contents of my skin18 reviewer program package. I choose mediheal masks for this level as I previously had a really nice experience with mediheal masks and its one of the brands I can definitely trust


Essential masks are one of the popular mediheal masks released by mediheal they were recently upgraded to a better formula
Initially I though that all of these sheet masks would give similar results but boy I was wrong each of these masks have a different type of serum  I will start with the MEDIHEAL PLACENTA RE-VITAL ESSENTIAL MASK"


My first ever encounter with placenta was  during my gynaecology ward rotation and I was seriously grossed out/amazed by it at the same time. But I never thought that one day I will using a mask on my face which contains placenta extracts 😳 As much as I was hesitant to try out "MEDIHEAL PLACENTA RE-VITAL ESSENTIAL MASK" i decided to man up 😝  and slap it on my face. This surprising smells good. As this is a cellulose  sheet mask with silky touch this has a thick sheet. The size of sheet is medium so the fit might be a problem for some people. I had to manoeuvre the sheet a bit so that it fit my face shape and tucked the excess part under my chin. I kind of look like voldemort wearing this mask but I bet you all might have got used to my face by now πŸ˜…. Anyways the serum of this sheet mask is slightly viscous and has glycerine like texture so it does not absorb into the skin right away especially if you have oily skin like I do but a little bit of patting can make a difference. When I took off the mask after 30 mins my face felt a little bit tacky and had a layer of unabsorbed serum which gave glowy look to my face. As the weather has become hot and warm again one would like it more if the mask is chilled before application. Overall this isn't a bad sheet mask but i think this is kind of mask that is better enjoyed by  folks who gave dry skin as this is very hydrating πŸ‘  4/5


MEDIHEAL TEA TREE CARE SOLUTION ESSENTIAL MASK"


I had really high hopes for this one as tea tree  is a really promising ingredient for acne prone and oily skin and I am happy to tell you guys that my experience with this was good. It has a pleasant scent and has a thin serum which absorbs into the skin without leaving that tacky feel . My skin felt soft and all the redness was reduced. This mask is great if you have oily skin  I love how mote and more brands are designing sheet masks that target acne prone

and oily skin type


MEDIHEAL COLLAGEN  SOLUTION ESSENTIAL MASK"


Drenched in serum this mask was tried out by my mother. The fit was good for her face ) there wasn't much extra part to tuck in the mask-). For her dry skin this mask was perfect. The serum was thick and left a slightly tacky film which locked in all the moisture. My Mom likes to wear sheet masks till the edges of the sheet began to dry up. And for her this dried up after 50 mins. Pretty good eh !!


MEDIHEAL VITA LIGHT BEAM ESSENTIAL MASK"

Now all the Variants  that I tried out from this range didn't provide the brightening . Something which is a hall mark of Asian skincare so when I picked this one up I was excited as I love products which brighten and whiten but alas this failed to brightening the complexion Tha glow was there no doubt but the brightening part was missing and the serum was tacky so I washed my face because I didn't like the feel of leftover serum on my face. This is good mask in terms of moisture but if you are picking this up for brightening then you are going to be disappointed 😞
MEDIHEAL PLATINUM V LIFE ESSENTIAL MASK"


One of the fancy ingredient mask. I have seen  skincare products which contain gold extracts but having platinum as an ingredient was quite a surprise for me. I didn't know what to expect from this mask so I just applied it onto the face and watched tv while I waited fir the essence to soak in .one thing I noticed was that unlike the other variants this mask was not upgraded ? I wonder why?
Anyways I didn't notice any special difference in my skin texture except for the fact that it looked plump ( choc choc skin) .
All and about these masks are good for providing moisture and hydration . The formula is very skin friendly. the essence does not itch or burn. Even though some of these masks leave a tacky residue onto the face . It does not cause breakouts . These are available for purchase at skin18.com website

When I washed my πŸ’† now I am believer πŸ˜…. who remembers this song from SHREK (chuckle)
 
Tried this BLIV bubbly O2 bubbly bright oxygenating mask and was surprised that my face looked as bright as sunshine πŸ˜‰ ( ok that's a bit of exaggeration) but seriously you guys, this mask gives instant brightening to the face.

pretty much every skincare brand that i know of has been coming up with their own bubbling mask but not all of them fulfil the tall claims that they are making, however this mask is a different story

rice is one of the oldest skincare ingredient used in many Asian countries to brighten the skin. its used lighten the complexion and tone skin and yes Rice is one of the chief ingredient of this mask you can totally imagine the effects this mask deliver?


 The mask is housed in a medium sized container with a protective lid to prevent mask from oxidizing and a spatula. I highly recommend you to use the spatula as this helps the product to remain fresh also a word of advice immediately close the lid of the container as soon you scoop out the product or else it will start to bubble up in the container

 The mask has a lotion/cream like texture with tiny red beads for exfoliation. It's recommended to scoop out the product using a spatula. Once the mask is massaged onto the face (dry skin) it immediately begins to foam up. The foam is not too thick but its there. There is funny ticklish feel when its turning into bubbles 😁 the bubbles lasts for about 2-3 mins even less if you are sitting under a fan



.I left the mask on for 10 minutes massaged my face once again and then splashed it with cold water. My skin looked brighter/fairer plus it felt soft and matte. This effect lasted for quite some time and I felt like the pores on my cheek looked sort of small. cant say much about the stubborn pores on my nose because very few things work on them😐
 
In terms of physical exfoliation I didn't notice much difference because the beads are sparse so didn't manage to remove the dead skin on my chin and cheeks. This mask retails for approx 39-40$. 


though the mask is on the pricier side the effects it delivers totally justifies the money. the brand is really confident about the performance of its product as it promises money back if the product falls short on your expectation,
