Review: Vanedo by Masketeers~

Hi everyone!!

Today I’m going to introduce to you a new series of sheet masks from Korea. The brand is Vanedo Beauty Friends. They have a total of 25 variants and I’ve received 5 to try. Out of the 5 I’ve received, there’s the very popular Snail and Syn-ake mask which I’m pretty excited to try. Other then those 2, there’s the Red Ginseng, Herb and Mugwort ones.

The thing about Korean masks is that they usually have the description and all in Korean but for Vanedo masks, they have it in 3 different languages which is Korean, English and Japanese. I think it’s great to be able to understand the product better this way.

The mask itself is 2g and it contains 23g of essence. Some of you might doubt this but let me show you. The mask itself is already fully soaked and there’s still loads of essence in the pack. Don’t waste those essence, use them on the arms or legs!

I’m using the Mugwort one as seen. This mask gives me a minty/cooling sensation when I applied the mask on. I feel the same too when I patted the extra essence on my legs. The Mugwort is for soothing, firming and moisturizing.

I’ve a pretty big face as compared to many girls out there and usually sheets masks fits just right or smaller then my face. This mask fits nicely but is actually slightly bigger which I loves. Noticed the hole for the eye is pretty small? As in there is a flap for the under eye area that can covers the eye when you close them. I think it’s pretty neat as our under eyes needs some masking too!

While I was happily masking away, it seems that my Crafts are interested in the masks too.

パーティ熊 wants some Red Ginseng to refine and firm up the skin after party throughout Xmas and New Year.

Futsu-Neko is greedy and took the Snail, Sny-ake ones. He wanted the Mugwort one too but too bad, I’m using it.

After 30 minutes, I removed the mask and the skin is refreshed and supple! I also noticed redness being reduced.

I kind of like this better then the masks I usually use. The essence is of a more watery texture and I can feel it being absorbed into my skin and no sticky feeling is left behind. I’m probably going to try the other 20 variants that Vanedo offers before deciding which ones I like most. I’ve a feeling that the Snail one would be on the list. 😛

Highly Recommended by 虹兎! It’s worth a 4/5 rating!

Now where to get these masks which are super affordable at $1.20 per piece. Simply purchase 5 piece and above to get it at $1! Or if you want a better deal, get 25 pieces at just $22!

You can get them from the Masketeers~ They are a new blogshop started by a group of retail students from NYP~ This is actually part of their FYP project so let’s give them our support!

I’m definitely going to support them by buying the remaining 20 variants of the masks to try!

Do check out their FB page for information on the masks and also regular updates!

WishTrend: Skin & Lab

Hi all! Some of you might remember that I’ve once did a collaboration with Wishtrend on a blind test project some time back.

Wishtrend is now sponsoring Korean skincare and cosmetics monthly to a group of bloggers and I’m one of them. Let’s cut the story short and check out what they have sent me this month!

Skin & Lab products!

I’ve received a full sized C Plus Brightening Vitamin Cream which is one of the top 3 best sellers in the Skin & Lab range on Wishtrend.com. As the name suggest, it’s a Vitamin C cream that helps to improve skin tone and brightening.

I’ve also received samples of various vitamin creams in the Skin & Lab range of products. How does Skin & Lab products work you might wonder.

There’s Vitamin A for firming, B for acne, C for brightening, E for moisture and K for redness. You can mix and match the vitamin cream and apply them according to your skin condition. For example, using B and K together when targeting acne. B to help treats the acne and K to reduce the redness left or caused by acne. As our skin condition changes from time to time, there’s never one product that will work for us forever. With Skin & Lab range of vitamin cream, we can target different problems by using a different combination mixed on our own.

Skin & Lab products ranges from USD 10.99 to USD 25.99. The full set of vitamin cream cost USD 63 which is very worth as each individual tube cost USD14.99 to 15.99.

Wishtrend is offering a USD5 discount to all newly registered account. So take this chance to make use of the discount and happy shopping! Discount code below!

Quite excited on what will I receive next month! Can’t wait!



Review: Skin 79 Vital Orange BB Cream

I’ve received the latest addition to the Skin79 BB Cream family from the kind people from StarAsia.

It’s the new Vital Orange BB Cream with the highest spf of SPF 50 PA+++, providing you with the highest level of protection from the harmful UV rays.



Here’s a swatch of the BB cream. Color is unlike the VIP Gold one which is more to the greyish side. The Vital Orange BB cream is more yellow toned which is perfect for us with the yellow under tones.


Here’s a half face photo with the bb cream applied to the left side of the face. I feel that it evens out redness quite well and coverage is quite good.


Here’s after setting with powder. Looks pretty good no?

Here’s my ratings on the Vital Orange BB cream:

Coverage: 4/5

Blendability: 3.5/5

Oil control: 3/5

Color: 4/5

Staying power: 3.5/5

Overall: 3.75/5

I would recommend this BB cream to those who needs coverage and those with normal or more towards dry skin. For oily combi skin like me will just have to blot more often as the oil control for this BB cream is pretty average. But I would say this BB cream is a win in terms of coverage and color.

Hope this is helpful!





CLIO Swatches

CLIO Professional Products!

All for beautiful eyes!

Eye Love You Shadow Pencil in Khaki Grey, $16.90.

Swatch of the pencil. It’s quite pigmented, you have to draw a few times to get the desired intensity.

I actually reviewed this pencil without knowing the brand in the WishTrend Pencil Blind Test.

It’s a good eyeliner for daily use. Plus you can use it as a eyeshadow too!


Star Product of the bunch.

Waterproof Pen Liner Kill Black, $22.90.

Rather then say a pen tip, I would say it’s more like a felt tip. Stiff but comfortable to draw on the skin.

Swatch of this liner. Pigmentation is there, smooth and easy to apply.

Very intense black.


Waterproof Brush Liner Kill Black with Mini Mascara, $25.90.

Comes in a soft brush tip.

As  the brush tip is softer as compared to the Pen, it might not be that easy to control as compared to the pen.

But you can create much thinner lines with the brush liner. Pigmentation is good but not as intense as the pen liner.


LGel Liner and Cake Eyebrow Pot in Violet, $27.90.

Comes with a dual ended brush, one for the brows and one for the liner.

The cake eyeshadow is of a very soft brown which makes it easy for you to control the intensity that you want for your brows.

As for the liner, it does not applies smoothly but color intensity is there. It’s a very nice and vibrant violet shade.


Waterproof Mascara Kill Volume, $29.90.

A quick drying mascara that will not smudge up to 10 hours.

Have not used this yet, wait for my review! XD


I would highly recommend the Pen Liner to all fans of eyeliners! It’s really very easy to use and it’s really super intense. Great for that cat eye look!
