Hi all, these are the new K-beauty makeup releases for the third week of November 2015.
As always, most are freshly announced, or only available on their official Korean websites. These products can be purchased through using a buying service like the one provided by Avecko.com. One of the first stores with international shipping to carry new releases is Tester Korea. At times, new releases will start popping up in their store within a couple of days, so make sure to check them out!
Skinfood announced its new Propolis Serum in Foundation SPF 45+ PA+++. It contains propolis extract to give a moist, dewy finish. It will have anti-aging and brightening properties as well. There are two shades 1 Light Skin and 2 Natural Skin. The brush pictured is the new Foundation Drop Brush. Coming soon.
Espoir Sparkle Eyes
Espoir launched sparkly eye shadows and pigments last week with its Sparkle Eyes collection. There are 24 new pressed Eyeshadow Sequins (2g / 10000 KRW) now available online. There are also 6 shades of "Pigment Sequins" (3g / 15000 KRW) which are glittery cream eyeshadows.
3 Concept Eyes Eyeshadow Palettes
Missha Sticker Nail Flash
These nail polishes don't require nail polish remover. They peel right off! They can be bought at Missha Korea for 3000 KRW each here.
Unpretty Rapstar Cosmetics
Unpretty Rapstar is a Korean reality show that is in its 2nd season. It's an elimination contest where female rappers both underground and in the K-pop industry face off to win rights to new tracks produced by top music producers in Korea. They launched their Unpretty Rapstar Cosmetics at the end of September. They do a full line of makeup, and cleansers. Check it out if you're interested! Or maybe you're a Wonder Girls Yubin and Sistar Hyorin fan...
Touch in Sol CC Moisture Veil Cushion Compact
Touch in Sol announced a new and improved CC Moisture Veil Cushion Compact SPF 50 PA+++. It is a 'winter skin' compact. This one is rumoured to have a cooler tone than most Korean cushion compacts. It also contains herbal extracts. It will be available at touchinsol.com
Too Cool For School Art Class by Rodin HIGHLIGHTER
Too Cool For School's Art Class for Rodin 3 color CONTOUR product became an instant classic in Korea earlier this year. They've recently released a 3 color HIGHLIGHTER product that will hopefully be just as good. The product contains 3 highlighter shades (champagne, peach, and pinky peach) for fair to medium skin. It is available now at TCFS Korea for 17000 KRW.
Apieu Color Max Lipsticks
Apieu released 3 new shades of their Color Max formula lipsticks: Dry Coral, Ruby Red, and Witch Red. They retail for 7500 KRW each here.
Etude House Blend For 4
Just a quick PSA: Etude House holiday (the Snowy Dessert collection) is now available online at Etude House Korea.
However, these Etude House Blend For 4 eyeshadow quads are available at Etude House Global. This means no dealing with shipping services, they ship internationally for free when you purchase over $50 worth of goods. There are 4 quads available in pink, rose, orange, and beige.
New Makeup at Club Clio
Clockwise from the top left corner are the Clio Water Me Please BB Cushion (2 shades / 20000 KRW), Peripera Wholly Deep Velvet Pots (5 shades / 7200 KRW), Kill Cover Air Wear Protexture Foundation (3 shades very nice / 25600 KRW), and the Kill Cover Liquid Founwear BB Cream (1 shade / 20000 KRW).
Business of Fashion ran an article on a Korean brand Talent Cosmetics, pursuing halal certifications to appeal to the growing Muslim consumer base (especially in Malaysia). For a product to be considered halal, it must not contain any products from animals like pigs and dogs, and must be handled with care from production all the way through to distribution.
If anyone has any questions about any of these products or want to know more about ingredients.... shoot me a note or tweet me @unsightlygimp. If you have a tip or news byte to share with me I'd also appreciate them. I have my eye on the Too Cool For School highlighter. What do you have your eye on?
