Review: TonyMoly New Piglet Pink Collection 2019

Tonymoly came out with new year collection and this is a year of pig according to the Chinese calendar so they came out with the cute collection called Tonymoly Piglet Pink Collection which contains one new palette and two blushes which I am going to review today. I am going to start with the blushes


  •  TONYMOLY X PIGLET PINK gives you perfect eyes mood.
  • This eyeshadow palette provides 9 colors, expressing a various and trendy look
  • It has good adhesion due to 'TONYMOLY's Fixing Binding System' with long-lasting.



This Piglet pink palette came in a beautiful pink and casing with the transparent lid on top and has rose gold base for eyeshadow pan. The packaging of the palette is pretty similar to the mac palette x 9 and these palettes from Tony moly also came in a 9 shadow pan. It’s a tiny yet compact, useful and travel friendly palette.


As the palette is called piglet pink, this palette contains some pink shadow which are very subtle and great for daily use. I personally loved the color scheme of tony moly palette, from base color to dark color is what I think every palette should need to have and this have it all including the glitter finish shadows which I also think are must have with the mattes.


You get the nine shades in total from which three are totally matte and two are matte with a few tiny particles of glitters which does not show much on application. There are two satin to shimmer finish shadows and two are glittery finish and all of them are pretty on their own way.


The pigmentation of this Tonymoly palette is pretty good, its not as great as the moonshot one but its really good and I think its pretty good


If you are a warm pig (1): It is a matte finish base color which is off white with the hint of yellow.
If you eat pig (2): It is a sheer light pink shade with the tiny gold shimmer particles.
If you are a brave pig (3): It’s a matte pink -coral shade which is not that pigmented but can be layered.
If you are cute Pig (4): It’s a beautiful rose gold shade with the pink base.
If you are a sparkling pig (5): It’s a gorgeous gold glittery shadow with not much of base color.
If you are an honest pig (6): It is a beautiful pink-beige champagne shadow which has a glittery finish.
If you are a kind pig (7): 
It’s a beautiful purple shade which has a shimmer to a satin finish.
If you love pig (8): 
It is a matte pink shade which Is nicely pigmented.
If you believe pig (9): It is a matte dark brown shade with the hint of pink glitter particles.



I personally love this palette for daily to glam look, it's overall a nice palette. I love all the shades but the glitter shades to apply with the glitter primer to make sure they don’t fall all over your face. My personal favorite shades are the no. 1, no. 5, no.6, no. 7 and 8. Even though all the shades of this palette are pretty good and I love the combination which goes well with the living coral ( pantone color of the year 2019). For the price tag and overall quality I will definitely recommend this palette and honestly, it is s cute and pretty but functional as well.


  • Cute Piglet blusher gives soft but vivid color expression.
  • This powder blusher covers up unwanted sebum naturally.
  • Contains oil essence has good adhesion and lasts long with one touch.



These piglet pink blusher shades came in a pink plastic packaging as the palette and have a transparent lid with the rose gold print on it. the blusher themselves have a cute pig imprinted on them.


This Tonymoly came out with the two blushes only and both of them are satin and are pink in shade. I do wish they at least came out with the 5-6 shades but again it’s just a limited collection.


Both of them have the satin finish.


The pigmentation of these blushes is pretty good and they give sheer color with the brush but I have also applied them with the beauty blender and they applied pretty well and the pigmentation show very nicely. The formula seems a little dry but these applies pretty well and does have a little bit of fall out but they work because my last experience with the Tonymoly lace fabric collection (2018 collection) is not that great and they are not pigmented at all.


01 blush piglet: It is a light tone pink with the cool tone shimmer in it, it has a satin finish.
02 shy piglet: I personally like this shade more than the shade no. 1 as it matches my skin tone well. It’s a dry rose shade with the tiny particles of pink shimmer, has a satin finish.





These tonymoly piglet pink blushes stays on for 6 hours and do not emphasis any pores. I personally like to use them both together but If I have to choose one I will definitely choose the shy piglet it’s a quite unique shade and suit well on my skin.


I, overall really enjoyed love this collection by Tonymoly, the packaging is super cute and the shades and quality of the piglet pink collection is pretty good as well. I love the eye palette a little bit more than the blush because I wish they have introduced more shades for the blushers but overall this collection is worth buying if you want a cute and budget-friendly product which actually works nicely. The whole collection is available at Jolse.

Review: Some By Mi Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Toner & Serum

New launch by Some By Mi:
 Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Toner & Serum 

Hi, guys today I will be sharing my new favorite toner and serum but before that, I want to share what I have noticed is that in starting of 2019 many Korean brands are coming out with the Vitamin C containing products and you guessed it right! The products I am sharing today also contains vitamin C and also Glaactomyces as the main ingredients. I am pretty sure that 90 percent of you guys know about the Some by mi brand as they break the internet in 2018 with their 30 days miracle line.
Some by mi recently came out with the new line called ‘Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow’ which have toner and serum so far. Also if you don't know Yook Sung Jae from famous drama Goblin is a new brand ambassador of the Some by mi.

I was so excited for this Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow line by Some by mi as I love vitamin c and Galactomyces as a skincare ingredient. This Line has an EWG green graded raw materials, no artificial coloring or artificial fragrance. As it is recommended to try them both together to get the best result I have tried both in my skincare routine at the same time so let’s Starting with the toner first.


I have acne prone/ sensitive skin which is dry in winter.


Both of these products by Some by mi claims to be All in one which means they help in Whitening, moisturizing and vitality and also Works as an antioxidant and supply nutrition to the skin.
Soothe the irritated skin caused by external aggressors and stress.

Brighten up dull skin for a translucent skin finish.

Nourish, moisture skin and improve skin elasticity and texture.

Also, help with whitening and wrinkles improvement.


This toner contains Galactomyces fermented water rather than the purified water which is known for its brighten and moisturizing properties, which are excellent for moisturizing and elasticity, contain 88% (880,000 ppm) of galactomyces and contains 1% pure ascorbic acid (10,000 ppm) and 10 different types of vitamins.


Galactomyces ferment filtrate(88%), Butylene Glycol, 1, 2-Hexanediol, Niacinamide, Glycerin, Ascorbic Acid, Tromethamine, C12-14 pareth-12, Water, Allantoin, Cellulose gum, Ethylhexylglycerin, Adenosine, Hydrogenated lecithin, Polyglyceryl-10 stearate, Panthenol, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Phenylethyl Resorcinol, Propolis Extract, Aronia Melanocarpa Fruit Extract, Aspalathus Linearis Extract, Bambusa Vulgaris Extract, Maltodextrin, Saccharide hydrolysate, Ficus Carica Fruit Extract, Phoenix Dactylifera Fruit Extract, Tuber Magnatum Extract, Biotin, Folic Acid, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Pyridoxine, Opuntia Coccinellifera Fruit Extract, Opuntia Ficus-indica Extract, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Adansonia Digitata Seed Extract, Leuconostoc/ Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Broccoli Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Sparassis Crispa Extract, Cyanocobalamin, Tocopherol, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract, Ribes Nigrum Fruit Extract, Vaccinium Angustifolium Fruit Extract, Vaccinium Macrocarpon, Vaccinium Myrtillus Fruit Extract, Spirulina Maxima Extract, Astaxanthin, Inositol, Linoleic Acid, THIAMINE HCl, Disodium EDTA, Bergamot Fruit Oil, Limonene, Lavender Oil, Linalool, Caramel


It came in a dark brown plastic bottle with the usual diffuser where you have to shake to get the product out. The reason for the dark bottle is because vitamin C containing products can be oxidized in transparent easily. I am glad that the toner does not leak out from this packaging no matter how hard you shake so I can carry it around while traveling as well without worrying.
You get the 200ml of product which is available at Yesstyle.


The toner is just lightweight as water and same goes the consistency and it does have a tint of brown/yellow to it. It does have a chemical citrusy scent to it which I personally like ( as I like the scent of Bergamot Fruit Oil which is at the very end of the ingredient list) and the scent does fade away after few seconds so you don’t have to worry. It absorbs into the skin easily and it does not create any film or feel heavy on the skin, I will surely be using it in the summer as well. It’s one of those toners which feels good and just right, this Galactomyces pure C vitamin V provide the right amount of hydration to the skin and your skin feels instantly healthy. So far I am loving this toner, it does not irritate my skin or feel tingly on the skin.


Some by mi Vitamin C serum contains 75%(750,000 ppm) of galactomyces which to nourish and moisturize the skin and make the skin texture smoother. It also contains 3% (30,000 ppm) of vitamin C to soothe skin tired from ultraviolet rays and help maintain clear skin, it also contains 10 vitamins just like the Some by mi Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow toner. It contains Vitamin B3, B1, B5, B6, B12, B9, Vitamin C, E,F, and H.


Lactomeses fermented filtrate (75%), dipropylene glycol, glycerin ascorbic acid (30,000 ppm, butylene glycol, 1,2-8 Bandai niacinamide, tromethamine, purified water, trehalose c12-14 palace-12, Allantoin, hydroxyethylcellulose xanthan gum Ethylhexyl glycerin, adenosine Bergamo E oil,hydrogenated lecithin, glyceryl acrylate acrylic acid, copolymer, soya hyaluronate, Lil-10 Stearate, Lavender Oil, Panthenol Sorbitan Ascorbyl Phosphate, Phenylethyl Surinol Propolis Extract, Aronia Fruit Extract, Rooibos Extract, Saccharide Hydrolysate, Maltodextrin, Fig extract


Some by mi glow serum came in a dark brown glass dropper packaging. The did something extra smart about the packaging which I haven’t seen other doing that they add the plastic stopper like the one you get on the top of your lip gloss so when you pull out the dropper/applicator you do not get excess product and in that case you will not see crusty layer around the top of the bottle and I think it will also help to slow down the process of oxidization.

You get the 30ml of serum for 19 dollars from Yesstyle.


The serum does smell the same as the toner but again the smell fades away pretty quickly. It is pretty transparent in color with the tiny hint of gold/champagne color. It is a little bit viscous than the toner in consistency but once spread it on the skin it melts just like the toner and absorbs pretty quickly without any tacky feeling which is something new because I haven’t tried any vitamin c serum which is that lightweight and does not feel tacky/sticky. I know that it has a low percentage of vitamin c as compare to other serums but I think this is something I can blindly recommend people with the sensitive skin especially because I know the struggle of finding the right product for your skin. My skin has been struggling lately so these two are really helping me in recovering my skin damage and with the skin texture and dark spots.


About the skin texture these two definitely works great, my skin feels smooth and supple. These both help in fading my dark spots and hydrating the skin.
Will definitely recommend it if you are looking for the vitamin c containing products and especially for the sensitive skin.

You can also get products from Somebymi official website.

Neogen Vita Duo Cream Review

Let me represent you the one of the best and the most exciting collaboration of 2018 at least for me it is, I am a huge fan of Joan Kim, I have been watching her for 3 years now and love how she grows throughout the years and honestly she is a really hardworking person. So when I knew that she is coming with her own product and that is going to be with Neogen, I made my mind already that I have to get it.
