I’ve been testing out Haruharu Wonder‘s Black Rice Moisture 5.5 Soft Cleansing Gel for the past few weeks and it’s definitely on my list of the best cleansers ever! I’m so excited to be writing this review because I’m genuinely in love with this formula. In fact, I’ve been raving about it in private ever since I first tried it… and now I can finally put words on a screen and hit publish.

For those who don’t know, Haruharu Wonder is a Korean skincare brand that is all about top-grade, clean formulas. Their brand places importance on a healthy skin barrier, and also specialises in ingredients such as fermented black rice or bamboo shoot extracts. In addition, they commit to not testing on animals and not using any animal-derived ingredients, as well as sustainable printing – all things that I think are super important.

If you’re keen to try out the Black Rice Moisture 5.5 Soft Cleansing Gel yourself, it’s available from Olive Young Global, Stylevana or Amazon. Before you do though, let’s get into this review.


Review: Performance Eye 8X Palette (Moonshot)

Continuing on from my last Moonshot review, here’s to introducing their new Performance 8X Palettes! Even after all these years, I’m truly weak for a great eyeshadow palette and I never fail to test one out when ever I’m reviewing a new brand – or, in this case, a new re-brand.

Since Moonshot’s original concept was all about bold looks and shaking up the k-beauty industry, I actually thought that they would come back with something new colourful. From what I’m seeing, their current offering still features mostly neutral shades but they can still be used to create strong looks. The shades are very on-trend and are the type of colours that you might see on idols now – which I think works for the whole ‘performance‘ concept.

I got my hands on two out of the three colour variations – Rhythmic Burn and Blazing but all three are available at StyleKorean for USD$23 (on sale from USD$33).

Review: Performance Cushion Light Fixing (Moonshot)

This product was sent to me for review purposes. Please note that affiliate links are used.

I was a pretty big fan of Moonshot when they first launched – they were so different to other k-beauty brands at the time and I was a huge YG Entertainment fan too, so they caught my attention right away. Over the years though, it felt like they had lost their original high fashion flair and I really missed the old Moonshot vibes… I was really excited when I found out that they had just gone through a re-brand! I first found out about this via Edward Avila, then rushed to see whether these products were available on StyleKorean yet.

And they are!

I think that rebrand had revived what Moonshot used to be all about – trendsetting, playful and unafraid to stand out. Some of their older products are still available on StyleKorean but I think that Moonshot has essentially started afresh.

The new (first) collection is called ‘Backstage.’ It consists of four key products but I’ll be reviewing the two that are available on StyleKorean – the Performance Cushion Light Fixing and two of their Performance Eye 8X Palettes (to come in a later review)

Feature: Beauty Highlights of 2022

By Posted on 0 Comments5min read3 views

Now that 2022 has officially come to an end, I have something a little different to write.

Last year was, honestly, a very tiring year. Although things can be glamorous and fun on the outside, being a content creator is a lot of work and a big time commitment. Lately I’ve begin to wonder whether it’s worth it – so decided to highlight some of my favourite content and products from this year, partly to showcase some great products and partly to reminds myself of how far I have come.

So read on for some of my favourites, and little personal experiences that I wasn’t able to include in my caption and posts.


Review: Battle of the K-Beauty Cushions (feat Amuse, Moonshot and Tir Tir)

A clean, healthy base is essential to a great make up look, and thats why I think that a lot of people love foundation cushions. They’re convenient, easy-to-use and there are so many absolutely incredible formulas out there. I’ve used a lot of different products in the past but was recently tasked with trialing, reviewing and comparing a big range of cushions from some of the most popular k-beauty brands of the moment: Amuse, Moonshot and Tir Tir.

The formulas here change from sheer and dewy, to fuller coverage mattes though, naturally, some will better suit my preferences and style. So, I’ll be discussing how these all worked for my specific skin type and concerns:

  • Skin type: Combination, dehydrated skin
  • Skin concerns: Texture and enlarged pores
  • Shade: Shade 21, MAC N4.5 or Fenty 150

The cushions that I will be reviewing include:

All of these are available at StyleKorean and also fully linked within this review.

NOTE: The rating system of this post is different to my usual review and I am also only taking into consideration the shade match, formula and wearability. Please take this into consideration and carefully review ratings.
