nomakenolife – nmnl Japanese and Korean Beauty – October 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.

Nomakenolife is getting into the party mood this month with the Shibuya Night Out box. Shibuya is a district of Tokyo known for its nightlide as well as shopping during the day, and I’m anticipating some great products to make an impact for evening adventures!

3D Face Palette, Dodo Hologram Eyeshadow, & Etude House Dear Darling Water Gel Tint

The face palette is a really useful addition to your base cosmetics. It’s a multi-purpose selection and includes blush and highlighter, as well as a colour for contouring. It’s a fantastic selection and so great to have them all in one convenient place, and each one is even labelled!

The hologram eyeshadow has a marvellous reflecting effect, and even better, changes colour slightly according to the angle. It’s a really striking look, perfect to highlight your eyes.

Lip tint is the perfect alternative to lipstick. It lasts a long time, so you don’t have to worry about frequent reapplication, and it’s in a dramatic red colour that will take you all the way though the night.

Dodo Hologram Lip Gloss & Choosy Lip Treatment

Like the Hologram eyeshadow, this lip gloss creates the same pearly sparkly effect and also changes colour according to the angle. Not only does it look great alone, it can also be layered on top of other products for extra impact.

You still need to take care of your lips, and Choosy, the only Japanese company specialising in lip products, has collaborated with the Betty Boop iconic brand to produce this lovely treatment for dry lips. Great for the colder weather this time of year.

Etude House Under Eye Mask, Macaron Makeup Puff, & Skinfood Pumpkin Face Mask

Partying all night can leave you eyes and face feeling a little tired, so the special under-eye mask contains collagen to brighten and nourish this delicate area. The pumpkin mask is a nice nod to the season, as well as being a lovely moisturizing treat for the whole face.

The set of three macaron-shaped makeup puffs are both super cute and a real treat for your skin. They can be used to both apply and remove makeup,  and they look good enough to eat!

Nail Point Stickers

A fun nod to Halloween here with these cute festive nail stickers. Not only do they have a whole lot of adorable little Halloween designs, they even glow in the dark!

Our score: 9.6/ 10

This month's selection is definitely ready to party! From shiny cosmetics to skin treatments, I definitely feel well set up with some great new products. I especially like the hologram items, the effect is really amazing, and I'm also a fan of the lip tint as I don't like wearing lipstick. The nail stickers are funny but actually really nice, and a great way to get in on the Halloween festivities later this month. I like that nomakenolife has given us a little Halloween treat without going over the top. Anyway, I love this month's selection, and I'm already planning my next party look!
