BLK Cosmetics Kbeauty Collection (Review with Swatches)

Hello!! This is not an April Fool's day post. Hehe How's everyone doing? I don't know if someone is still reading my blog but I just felt the urge to blog again. Years ago, blogging was my stress reliever but when I became a mom I just can't keep up. I can't seem to manage my time like when I was in law school. My schedule became even more hectic when I went back to work. Most of the time, I just want to rest, spend time with my son, and watch Kdrama!!! Watching Kdramas instead of watching beauty videos has actually saved me from impulse buying. Today, I will be reviewing a local brand collection that is very to my heart (dahil sa aking kdrama addiction) - BLK Cosmetics KBeauty Collection. 

When I first saw the promotional video of Anne Curtis on Instagram, my beauty blogger x kdrama heart got so giddy! Hence, I decided to review their products. I was only planning on getting the All Over Color in Daffodil but I ended up adding the Sweet Lip Duo in Snowdrop and Intense Liquid Eyeshadow in Jasmine.

The packaging in this collection is really pretty noh!? 
All Over Color in Daffodil
The All Over Color in Daffodil is multi-purpose product that can be used on the eyes, cheeks, and lips. The doe foot applicator is large compared to the other local counterparts. This is  one of the selling points of this product because BLK claims that application will be easier with its huge applicator. I beg to disagree with this one. Due to the pigmentation and consistency of the product, application can get really tricky.  Instead of directly patting the doe foot applicator on my cheeks or lips, I just pat or dab my finger on the doe foot applicator to get my desired amount of product and apply/blend the product with the use of my fingers. On the cheeks, the product looked patchy when applied on top of powder and blending was harder. The best way to apply this on the cheeks is on top of liquid or cream foundation/base then sealing it off with powder to make the product last longer. The consistency and pigmentation are comparable to a runny liquid lipstick. The product is light and thin in texture but the pigmentation is really rich. The shade Daffodil is described by BLK as warm dusty pink but it looks like a warm coral peach with hints of brown on my cheeks and lips. My only gripe about this product is the staying power. I was very hopeful that it will last whole day on my cheeks but it only lasted on me for 2-3 hours.

Next product is an impulse purchase because nasalestalk ako ni ate. Hehe Kidding aside, I was really mesmerized with the shad eof the tinted lip balm. This Sweet Lip Duo costs 379 pesos and is surprisingly my favorite buy in this collection. The coconut lip scrub does a good job of sloughing away dead skin cells leaving my lips smooth and soft. The tinted lip balm is a moisturizing lipstick in a pot with a nude brown color. It gives my lips that healthy glow and looks perfect for that no makeup makeup look.
The tinted lip balm looks more nude and brown in person. My lips look extra nice on photos because of the lip scrub. It did a great job of smoothening out my lips.
Last product in this loot is the Intense Color Liquid Eyeshadow in Jasmine. This costs 299 pesos. The shade Jasmine is metal/shimmery peachy pink. {EDIT} This liquid eyeshadow has creamy texture and takes a while to set.  The pigmentation is great, however, application and blending is also very tricky.  The first time I applied this on my lids, the product looked so patchy!!! I figured that the best way to apply the product is through patting motion first then blending the product afterwards. This lasted for hours on my lids even without a primer. My only concern about this product is it takes a lot of of layering and blending to get my desired opacity. I noticed that when swatched at the back of my hand the color is very rich and full but when applied on the lids, the color is not that rich in one swipe.It requires layering to make the color work on my lids. Other than that, I really like this product particularly the shade is very pretty.

  1. It's really too bad that Daffodil didn't last longer, it looks lovely on your cheeks!
