Creepy Brand Beauty Products Review: Renkomay !

Honestly, I don’t know what to say about this creepy beauty brand – Renkomay. I bet most of you have never heard of this brand. I encountered this brand in a tiny beauty store which claims to be the brand’s distributor or agent… I forgot about that, but the problem is that store is kind of weird. The whole store does not legit…

Here comes the most creepy thing about this brand, it’s remarkable resemblance to Soap & Glory.

Soap & Glory Website Homepage

Official Homepage: Soap & Glory

Renkomay Website Homepage

Official Homepage: Renkomay

From the logo to the packaging, Renkomay looks exactly like Soap & Glory. Also, the so called “English Official Homepage” of Renkomay is filled with simplified Chinese on it. Although the brand claims to be originated in England since 1888, there is no information other than their website can be found on the internet.

Besides, the brand can only be found in China region, from what I observe. Many users said that it is likely Renkomay is a counterfeit. However, I have absolutely no idea whether it is or it is not.

So I am just going to review the products based on the product itself, whether you want to buy it is your choice.

*** DISCLAIMER: The following product are not sponsored. I purchased the following products with my own money. ***

Rose Pore Invisible Make Up Base

 

 

The Rose Pore Invisible Make Up Base is one of the best seller of the brand(said the shopkeeper). The base is brown in color, it reminds me of the POREfessional by Benefit. They both are makeup base to minimize the appearance of the pores. Surprisingly, this makeup base works as good as POREfessional. It smells look rose oil, the description said it contains rose essential oil, that explains the smooth scents of rose.

In terms of the ability on minimizing pores,  this rose makeup base has not much a difference with POREfessional. Though this rose makeup base is slightly richer than POREfessional, it is perfect for winter.

And on the plus side, it is a lot cheaper than POREfessional. It caused USD 15 for 1.0 US Fl Oz, while POREfessional causes USD 38 for 0.75 US Fl Oz. I think I will definitely repurchase this makeup base.

Lazy Special Caring Cream

 

This Lazy Special Caring Cream is in fact in purple color, it can also act as a skin tone  corrector.Renkomay Lazy Moisturizing  Cream

The texture is quite moisturizing and absolutely causes no oil on my skin. It is also USD 15 for 50g. I have combination skin, I like the texture of this cream, it is perfect for my dull skin in Winter.

There are a little problem, looks like the containers of this brand are really bad. They make a mess and they are hard to close tight, so beware.

12 Tips for No Makeup Look

There is also a time when you want to put on makeup but don’t want anyone to know. Kind of like my face but better, even lighter than NATURAL makeup. Look at Emmy Rossum, less is more.

Emmy Rossum

1. Use makeup base instead of foundation.

 

Makeup base can slightly cover your imperfection on your face and adjust your face color. Unlike using foundation, makeup base creates a very natural look as it is your nude face with good skin.

2. No shimmer and glitter.

When you apply anything with shimmer or glitter, people can see the reflection of light. So, nothing shimmery or glittery.

3. Try Eye Primer, no concealer.

Choose an eye primer can be applied on the under eye area, so that you can skip concealer.

4. Skip contouring and highlighting.

Save time and effort, plus you will look a lot more natural without contouring and highlighting.

5. Try color tint.

Color tint can be applied both on your cheek and lips, you will look like you have a rosy cheek and so kissable lips.

6. Clear eyebrow.

Don’t forget about your lips just because you are having a NO MAKEUP look. Soft and clear eyebrow would make your face look smaller.

7. Less or no eyelining.

If you really want to put on some eyeliner, only apply to your inner eyeline.

8. Minimize the use of mascara.

Go with thin and long eyelashes. No false eyelash please.

9. Matt cheek color.

Pick a matt cheek color that matches your face color and your lips.

10. Replace lip stick with tinted lip balm.

Instead of lip stick, try lip tint and tint lip balm. This combination creates natural looking and kissable lips.

11. Zero coverage powder.

If you really need some powder, choose one with no coverage.

12. Simple Hair style.

Natural curled hair is enough. If you try too hard on your hair,  but look like no makeup, that would like a bit weird.

8 Ways to Reuse Your Mugs Like a Fashion Blogger

8 Ways to Reuse Your Mugs Like a Fashion Blogger

Sometimes I wonder one person has only one mouth, why do we have so many mugs  and tea cups in the kitchen shelves? Even though you may own more than one mugs and tea cups, you may only use one to two of them frequently. I have summed up 8 ways for you to reuse your mugs and tea cups like a fashion blog!

1. Put some flowers in it.

Who said flowers have to be in a vase? A monogrammed mug would go perfect with flowers. Don’t worry, if you prefer faux flowers than fresh one, a mug can hide the fake stems.

2. Arrange your pens and pencils.

A mug can also be a stationary holder. Now you don’t have to freak because you can’t find a pen when you need to write down something.

3. Keep your makeup brushes together.
