RMK Irresistible Lips C19


Hi Ladies and Jellyspoons

RMK is a new Japanese make up brand on the market and it’s supposed to be really good, although I couldn’t find a single review on this lipstick on all of google.

I got this lovely lipstick in my Korea Marie Claire Glossybox. I love the colour. It’s described as a dark red, but it definitely leans more towards purple. I’d call it a magenta.

Retail Price: $39. (Wow! A little overpriced for sure)
Colour: plum purple or magenta
Texture: smooth and moisturizing like a gloss with grainy glitter. (Ewe)
Scent: It reminds me of grapefruit
Staying power: not good at all. Kisses off, comes off on clothes, mugs, cups, pretty much anything. I’d say 2 hours max.
Packaging: I like the sleek silver packaging, although I’m not really partial to anything because of its cover or packaging.


Here is the image that I found online and the write up on the RMK site:


“With its melting creamy texture, RMK Irresistible Lips C defies the boundaries of a lipstick. They are formulated to retain an abundance amount of moisture, bringing you a mouth-watering luster and shine that were previously only possible with lip glosses. Each lipstick is scented with a sweet cassis fragrance to awaken your senses.”


I suppose it’s good for what it’s supposed to be… A mix of a gloss and a lipstick.

I’d give it 3 stars only because I love the colour and the smell. The texture was really horrible at first. I suppose I’m used to by now because I seem to keep grabbing it instead if my other lipsticks. Added that I don’t have anything else in its colour.

Would I repurchase? Probably not as I’m definitely not a fan of the glitter feeling and I
could easily get 2 OCC liptars in that colour for the same price.

I wouldn’t mind getting other RMK lipsticks as I’ve heard good reviews. Maybe I just picked the wrong one.

Have you experienced RMK? What do think? Let me know in the comment section.





O.P.I. NL H 08. I’m Not Really A Waitress


Here it is. The O.P.I. I got in my Dec Korea Marie Claire Glossybox.

It’s a deep metallic blood red/ crimson. Lovely for the Christmas season. Not the typical bright red, but more vampy and dark. I’m obsessed with the colour.

List Price:
U.S.A $7
Korea ₩22,000 ( roughly $20). Yes, some person is getting rich.(~_~)

Staying power. Good in general. One or two days before chipping.
With base and top coats: one week to 10 days.

Have a lovely week!

Glossybox Korea Marie Claire Holiday Box

This is not a monthly subscription box. Instead it’s a special box filled with 6 full sized items, instead of 5 samples. The price is also the reason for everything being full sized. Instead of the ₩20,000 normal monthly price, this one was ₩99,000. Roughly equivalent to $100. If you click on the site ( ), they don’t usually give you such a great preview of what you’re going to get, but this time I knew exactly what I was getting, which is probably why I bothered getting it.

Here is what it looks like: isn’t the box and the ribbon just adorable?


When you open the box, all the items are wrapped in a sheet of paper with Christmas designs on them, along with the Glossybox logo.


As if that isn’t cute enough, all the items are protected with pink paper shreds, and for an added cuteness, they added potpourri and a plastic rose. Everything’s smells lovely too.


What I got:

Amore Pacific Perfection Bloom. Natural Finish Foundation in 102
List Price: ₩90,000
O.P.I. NL H 08 I’m Not Really A Waitress. (Blood metallic red)
List Price: ₩22,000
List Price: ₩15,000
Clinique lash power mascara in black onyx
List Price: ₩34,000
RMK Irresistible Lips in C19 Shiny Deep Red (magenta)
List Price: ₩39,000
I could choose my colour. There were about 18 different colours to choose from.
Caudelíe Devine Oil. Enhancing dry oil for body, face and hair.
List Price: ₩79,000

If you add up the value of the box, you will find that it way exceeds the price I paid for the box.
It’s ₩99,000 versus ₩279,000

I’d say this was a definite bargain box. I shall be writing reviews soon, but I’m sick so please bear with me. I will also be doing a vlog, so I’ll post the link soon.

Till next time.
