nomakenolife – nmnl Japanese and Korean Beauty – June 2021

Nomakenolife contains 8 – 9 items of cosmetic, hair, and skincare products from both Japan and Korea, two places which are very serious about their beauty products.

They have one-, three-, six-, and 12-month subscriptions costing from $35 (around £27) for one month (longer subscriptions are cheaper). Shipping is free.

This month’s theme Rise ‘n’ Shine Beauties is all about the core elements of a daily routine, both skincare and makeup.

Moving away from the fashionable multi-step skincare programmes, this month’s selection is chosen to give you the perfect start and finish to your day.

Rilakkuma x Senk Perfect Whip Face Wash

Japanese foaming facial cleansers are the best you can find! This gentle face wash is perfect for all skin types, and removes all traces of dirt and makeup. This version also has the bonus of a special edition collaboration with the kawaii character Rilakkuma, and is only available to the Japanese market.

Dr Dermal Daytime and Nighttime Sheet Masks

Wake your skin up in the morning with the energizing blend for maximum hydration, and this one remains firmly on the skin so you can start your morning without worrying that it will slip.

The night version is aimed at relaxation. The ingredients are designed to nourish tired skin, and it’s designed to be kept on for 20+ minutes to make the most of the effects.

Spinns Why Not 2 Colour Blush, Liquid Eyeliner, and 3 Colour Eyeshadow

The multiple cheek and eye colours give you a huge range of options for colours and shades, whether you want to go for a more natural look or make things pop with the brighter and sparkly tones.

The eyeliner comes tipped with a flexible brush, making it easy to create a thick or thin line depending on what look your are creating.

Kerei Factory Lipstick Duo and Dodo Volume Fantasy Mascara

This double set of lipsticks is an intriguing idea. They are designed to be used individually or combined to great effect, which allows for a much greater range of colour and intensity.

Mascara that comes in a tube is not familiar to me, but this actually works incredibly well. The lid holds a curved brush that follows the lash line beautifully, and the tube means the mascara itself isn’t exposed to the air like the conventional packaging. The mascara itself lasts beautifully, it’s dramatic without being overdone, and the brush makes sure there are no clumps or sticking lashes.


Our score: 9.8/ 10

I really like how this month has really stripped back and presented a fantastic basic range. It may be relatively simple - even the packaging is much more low-key than usual - but every item is an essential and within the simplicity you have a huge amount of potential variety. This is an excellent example of an essential kit that will suit everyone, whether you need a simple day look or something more dramatic for evening.
