BLK Cosmetics launched its newest K-Beauty collection. It is not a secret how much Anne Curtis loves Korean Dramas so being a co-owner of BLK Cosmetics, she made sure to have a K-Beauty inspired collection. Let me show you the entire BLK Cosmetics K-Beauty Collection below.
I always associate dreamy and romantic shades to Korean makeup and this is exactly what you will see in this collection. What I love about it is that the shades are all wearable from day to night. If you are looking for affordable everyday makeup, you have to check this out.
blk cosmetics K-Beauty collection: All-Day Intense Matte
This is a two-tone matte lippie that you can either layer together for an ombré effect or wear each alone.
For ombré lips, use the darker shade to outline the edges of your lips, then apply the lighter shade on the inner areas. Gently blend with your finger or a lip brush for a soft, gradient effect.
It comes in 2 shades. Left: Dandelion; Right: Lily
blk cosmetics K-Beauty collection: Sweet Lip Duo
It is a 2-step lip perfector that has flavored lip scrub on top so you can gently remove rough and dry patches and a tinted lip balm at the bottom.
How to use it: On clean lips, apply a thin layer of the lip scrub and gently rub with your finger to exfoliate. Moisturize by swiping on one to two layers of the tinted lip balm.
It comes in 2 shades. Left: Tulip; Right: Snowdrop
Below is the swatches of the tinted balm. I must say, both are pigmented for a balm!
Top: Snowdrop; Bottom: Tulip
blk cosmetics K-Beauty collection: Intense Color Liquid Eyeshadow
If you are looking for an everyday eyeshadow that is easy to wear, this might be for you. Just dab a few dots on the center of your lids and gently blend with your ring finger. You can also use it as a blush by applying a small amount on the apples of your cheeks and blend.
It has a doe foot applicator.
Note that it’s really pigmented. You only need 1-2 dots on each lid. I like how easy it is to blend– no tugging of the lids or skin.
It comes in 2 shades. Left: Daisy; Right: Jasmine
blk cosmetics K-Beauty collection: Soft Matte Mousse
If you love velvety texture, then you have to try this! It is soft and seamless to apply that’s light on the lips. And guess what? It doubles as an eyeshadow and a cream blush.
It has the right size of doe foot applicator– easy to outline and to fill the lips.
It comes in 4 shades.

blk cosmetics K-Beauty collection: Dream Skin Perfector BB Cream
This is a color adapting BB cream with matte finish.
And what do I mean by “color adapting”? So it starts as a white cream as seen below…
Then once you start blending, you will notice the color changes.
Once blended, here it is…
Looking at the finish, this is most beneficial to those with normal or oily skin.
blk cosmetics K-Beauty collection: Creamy All-Over Paint
This is a creamy cheek paint that can also be used as eyeshadow and lip color.
It has really wide applicator so be careful not to apply too much since this is very pigmented too! You only need a few dots on the apples of your cheeks, on the lids, or on the lips, and gently blend with your finger. It is always better to apply a small amount and just add more when needed.
Left: Daffodil; Right: Peony
blk cosmetics K-Beauty collection: All Day Lip and Cheek Water Tint
This 2-in-1 product allows you to go as sheer or as vivid you prefer. The tint guarantees a natural-looking, all-day flush for that low-key Korean look.
To be honest, the shades from the bottle can look intimidating. I was even afraid I would get streaks on my cheeks as I blend. But surprisingly, it is very easy to blend and it doesn’t dry out very fast. Best of all, no streaks!

My personal favorites from the BLK Cosmetics K-Beauty collection are the Sweet Lip Duo, Soft Matte Mousse, Intense Color Liquid Eyeshadow, and All Day Lip and Cheek Water Tint. What’s yours?
