VelyVely Make Up Review

Hehe im black with reviews ! I stopped my Busan blogging at Day 6 i think ! OMG I got alot to update but too much ! Too busy in October and November and then Dec which is Xmas. I will just skip to the make up and skincare reviews on the products i got 2 months ago and i have been using them for 2-3 months already. So it is a good time for honest reviews !

Good thing about having a sis-in-law who is a year younger than you is that we have many things in common and talk about. Both of us like to look at clothes , make ups and skincare. So 3 years ago , she recommended this brand called IMVELY to me.

Imvely is like Stylenanda. I think everyone should know 3CE and Stylenanda lah. 3CE is the cosmetic arm of Stylenanda.

Well for Imvely , Velyvely is the cosmetic arm of Imvely.
Imvely sells clothes and Velyvely sells cosmetics.

You can find their boutiques in major malls like Lotte or Shinsaegae in Seoul , Busan and other cities ! Airport dutyfree also sell their skincare and make up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Presents from SIL (Velyvely eyeshadow palette and sun cushion)

I have not used the sun cushion yet so i cannot review.

 

The colours are soo prettyyy.

Definitely my style ! sis-in-law’s style and my style are the same so i guess she chose the right colour for me !

 

I love this colour combi. Works very well on my eyelids and brightens my skin and look.

It looks orangey but when you apply , it is actually very subtle.
They have many types of palettes (smoky eyes etc). But this one is definitely my style !

I don’t know how much it costs but don’t think it can be found in Olive Young. Only cushions and basic lip sticks range can be found in Olive young but the full range can only be bought from their stores.

Now the star product is their BB Cushion.

The popular one is AURA GLOW CUSHION which i find it toooo dewy and gives a too “wet and sweaty” look. The Honey Cushion is semi dewy and works well for me.

The black one is Perfect Cover Cushion which is more matt.

 

The Perfect Cover Cushion in N21.

This cushion is more matt and coverage is not very thick though it is called Perfect Cover. So don’t expect it to cover your blemishes. But one thing for sure is , it is longlasting. I went out today in sweat and rain but i did not need to touch up.
Whereas for the Honey Glow (Yellow) , i have to touch up once or twice a day.

It kinda reminds me of Hera Black Cushion. I used the black cushion before and if you were to ask me hor…i prefer this than the Hera one. This is more moisturising. Hera one is abit drying on me.

 

 

It comes in a box with the main product + refill pack !

Oh yes Imvely and Velyvely ships internationally tooo ! So you can buy from their website at imvely.com and choose the english option.

 

Next is the Honey Glow Cushion.

 

Like the name , it is moisturising and gives a semi-dewy look. Not the very shiny kind of dewy but subtle one. Moisturising factor definitely high but not very lasting as compared to Perfect cover. Oh yes one thing i like about this latest product is the shape of the cushion which has an angled end. It makes blending around the nose eye area easier and nose edges. The air cushion pad material is slightly different too. It is abit plastic leatherish. Which means that your cushion pad will not look very dirty with foundation or other make up stains. I can clean and wipe it with a tissue.

 

See below and you can see the air cushion pad comparison.

Perfect Cover Cushion (Black) has round cushion and the usual cover material whereas the yellow Honey Glow Cushion has an angled cushion pad and looks more leatherish.

 

If you ask me which one is better ?
It depends on your skin type. If you have oily skin , the black Perfect Cover will suit you. If you have dry or normal skin , Honey Glow cushion in yellow will be better.

You can buy them from Velyvely/Imvely stores and Olive Young !

Hanyul Artemisia

Used up my Pyungkang Yul set in June and got my housemate to help me buy this set when she went back in June.

I started to love this series after i bought and used the moisturier last year when i went to Korea in Oct.

I bought the Toner and Fluid which i apply after my serum.

So my steps are Cleansing -> Toner -> Essence -> Serum -> Fluid -> Moisturiser.

Ehh..when i first used the moisturiser , i am not used to the scent. Because all the while i have been using Hera and other brands which gives a more derma or perfumed scent. Whereas for this Hanyul artemisia series, it smells abit like freshly cut grass lol. But it is very mild and i find it quite pleasant actually ! Smells very light and refreshing. The texture of the toner and fluid is also smooth and does not leave sticky feeling so it is easy to apply make up after that. It is very moisturising and i really like it. So this coming Sept when i go to Korea to fulfil my daughter-in-law duties during Chuseok , im going to stock up this and another series (Rice series which is pink bottle).

I love how this moisturiser and calm my skin without feeling sticky. It is also refreshing. Packaging also looks atas and the bottle is actually quite heavy. It absorbs into my skin quite fast too. I really love this!!! Suitable for Sg weather.

If you prefer something not so creamy and light in texture , the artemesia series from Hanyul will suit you ! You can get from any Aritaum stores in Korea. If i remember correct (how much i paid back to my housemate) , the toner + fluid set costs less than SGD 40.

I’m From Honey Mask Review

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

New mask review from KR !

I thought i was unable to head to KR in Sept so i asked a friend to help me buy from Olive Young (KRW 35,000) .

 

 

 

This mask is very hard to find because very fast out of stock ! I was contemplating between the Honey , Ginseng or Vitamin Tree one. Decided to get the Honey mask because it is the more popular choice. There must be a reason why it is the more popular choice right.

How to Use ? 

Unlike your usual sleeping mask where you can apply and go to sleep , it is better to use this mask during shower because you need to wash it off. So what i do is that , i will cleanse my face , towel dry and then apply this mask before i wash it off after about 15mins.

The texture is very sticky and ermm…sounds disgusting but when you apply on your face , it is like smearing jam on your whole face. Very sticky and all. I think if you were to leave it overnight , all the ants will come and stick onto your face leh !

Results ? 

I was taken back by effect and how it makes my skin soft and smooth after that. Now wonder this mask was quite popular. Skin also looks brighter. Worth buying and trying.

What i don’t like about it ? 

The smell and it is really damn sticky (because of the honey ingredients). The mask got onto my hair and i need to shampoo my fringe and side burns again. So now smart liao..i will wear a headband and hide all my hair behind so it will not get to my hair.

The whole mask’s texture is just like strawberry jam + peanut butter. It smells like very thick and pure honey. This brand is known to be organic so i guess that’s why.

Besides the smell and the stickiness, i think everything is okay and i really like it ! If only it comes in leave on mask version.

 

Buy or not ?

YES ! If you don’t mind the hassle and the thick organic honey smell.
I’m From products are available in Olive Young outlets.
