*screams* The new Innisfree Jeju Color Picker Camellia Collection is finally arriving in Singapore this March. I’ve been waiting for the arrival of this collection since I saw it on the official Innisfree Instagram. My eyes were set on the new blushers and eyeshadow palette.
I’m sure Innisfree doesn’t need any introductions since it is one of the biggest Korean beauty brands. The 2021 Jeju Color Picker is their seventh edition and this collection highlights the captivating warm hues of reds and pink, inspired by Camellia flowers. Camellia represents love and devotion, a widely regarded symbol of loyalty between lovers in Korea.
Let’s dive straight into the review.
Camellia Blooming Blusher
The product that I’ve been most excited about: the blooming blushers. The flower design brings me back to 2019 when Etude House launched their blossom series. It’s going to take me extra effort not to destroy the design, but yes, I am a sucker for designs like this.
Innisfree claims that these have a unique texture and they are absolutely right to say that. I can’t think of a blush that has a similar texture despite having tried out so many. I was fascinated that these are jelly-type blushers because they don’t appear to have a jelly texture. But after trying them out, I started playing around. These blushers are as soft and delicate as a flower.
There are two shades for the Blooming Blush. They are seamlessly buildable with a brush, but not as pigmented as I had expected. The Red Camellia is not as bold as it looks, but it gives a nice and surprisingly pink finish. The Pink Camellia, on the other hand, is too light for my skin tone.
Camellia Eye Palette
I love the packaging. I know many brands do this, but I appreciate when brands allow me to catch a glimpse of the shades without opening the palette. Plus, the case feels pretty sturdy.
Aesthetics aside, this nine shade palette contains brown and pink tones which are perfect for an everyday look. The lovely shimmers are also great for that pop of color in the centre of your lids. I have fallen in love with the shade Camellia Stain because it’s a stunning gold to use for highlights. If you’re not overly-adventurous (like me), this palette will become your go-to.
Camellia Relief Lip Oil
I’ve grown an obsession with Innisfree’s lip balms because they have been major lip savers. Did that make me hold high expectations for their lip oil? Yes.
This is my first time trying out their lip oil and I am pretty impressed. Though it looks thick in the bottle, it’s not heavy or thick when applied. It sinks nicely into my lips, giving a sheer pink tint that could make it pass off as a lip gloss. A layer is all I needed for my dry lips. It comes in a perfect size for your makeup bag which would come in handy when your lips need some saving.
*This lip oil is only available at physical stores.
Camellia Petal Tint
This collection includes three new lip tints that have a soft, matte finish.
These glide effortlessly and sit comfortably on my lips. The texture reminds me of their Cotton Vivid Ink Tints. But formulated with camellia oil, these petal tints provide that extra benefit of moisturising your lips.
My favourite shade is the Camellia Beige because it’s a flattering MLBB shade. I’d typically go for “safe” colours because it’s a great option for any occasion. I’d combine both Camellia Beige and Camellia Brick to achieve that gradient lip look.
Overall:Although I was most excited for the blushers, I ended up liking the palette and lip oil the most. I can see myself using these two the most, so they would be the most value for money for me.
Thanks for reading and hope this was useful!
