PS KPOP CollectionThis is the new PS KPOP Collection from Penneys. It is completely Korean inspired, in case the name didn’t give that away 🙂

PS KPOP Collection

Penneys say ‘The new KPOP Collection is Korean inspired. offering everything you need for a fresh faced, dewy look with the cutest accessories to add some fun to your application.’

I definitely don’t think the PS KPOP Collection will be for everyone, especially aesthetically. The packaging is very cutesy and girly everything as we would assume it be from the theme. However, keep reading, because even if you don’t like the look of some of the products, you may like how they perform.

I don’t have everything from the collection. There’s mirrors, nails, tweezers and an abundance of makeup products. I do have a good cross selection of the makeup goodies though, so I though it was worth showing in blogpost form.

I’ll try get through this quick sharp, as there is a fair few products! 🙂

We have two palettes that are both cherry flavoured and have heart shaped pans.

The Sugar Rush Eyeshadow Palette that retails for €6.

The KPOP Sweet Cheeks Blush & Highlight Palette. This is also €6.

I have three of the Afterglow Liquid Highlighters. These retail for €3.dublin beauty blogger

All three of them are duo chrome and have a doe foot applicator.makeup blog

I stupidly took the price tag off them, because they were sealed shut, and that took off the shade names. So I don’t know what these are called, but sure I can still swatch them for you 🙂

There is a Shimmer Powder, which comes with a sponge applicator and mirror. This costs €3.50. top irish beauty bloggertop beauty blog ireland

This one is a pastel pink shade which I am actually super intrigued to use. I think it will work really nicely in the waterline. There are other shades available of though.

Then finally,  we have the Pillow Talk Matte Lip Cushions.

beauty site ireland

Out of everything, I think, other than the palettes. These were the thing I was most excited to swatch. However, as you can probably see the eyeshadow palette isn’t too strong in pigment, other shades are better than others.irish beauty blog

I have three shades. They have a twist close lid and a sponge applicator. And, although the Pillow Talk Lip Cushions are pigmented, the product was hard to get out and I actually broke off two of the applicators, hence the messy swatches.irish beauty vlogger

The pink is called Cuddle. The brown is Honey Bun. The orange is Jelly Bean.

 

The PS KPOP Collection is available in Penneys now. You can see the last collection I spoke about here if you’re interested in checking any of their other products out. I think the Bronze Collection has a bit more to offer. Anything tickle your fancy?

Yay it’s mid November so it’s kind of acceptable to be talking about Christmas 🙂

I wanted to show you the Essence Merry Berry Collection a little closer up. Essence are really stepping up their game in the quality department but are still ridiculously affordable. Their Merry Berry Collection (out for Christmas) is one of the cutest I’ve seen this year so far.

irish beauty bloggerThe Essence Merry Berry Collection consists of what you see here (and another nail polish), a hair perfume, nail stickers and a spray body glitter in the cutest old school perfume bottle. A bit young for me, but I think they would make great stocking fillers for some younger girls. There’s also some individual lashes which is a cool addition.

I’ll give you a closer look at what I have.

There’s two single eyeshadows to choose from. They will set you back €2.49 and are both really pretty wearable shades.

irish makeup and beauty blogI am in love with the star embossing and the pay off is pretty good too.

The Merry Berry Collection also contains four nail polishes in the cutest packaging. The formula of these polishes is really good. You could actually get away with a one coat application if you were in a real hurry. They are €2.49 each.

As you would have guessed, they are really pretty berry shades, and the formulation is really smooth and opaque. ‘Red Rocks’ is matte pinky red and the other too have a more of a shined finish.
