I’m a pretty big fan of Beauty Credit because it’s so inexpensive and has such a wide variety of fun items from makeup to skincare and beyond. You’ve probably already ready many of my past reviews on the brand and perhaps you’re even a fan yourself of the line.
Although I’ve always had great success with many of the items I’ve tried from Beauty Credit one item I was slightly disappointed with.
Allow me to tell you about it, click for it.
The only item, thus far, that I’ve tried from Beauty Credit that I really didn’t love was the Beauty Credit Lovely Auto Gloss. Beauty Credit Lovely Auto Gloss has a whole lot going for it with it’s cute packaging, inexpensive price tag (£4), variety of colors, and nice pigmentation but I’m not the biggest fan of the formula.
A cute click pen houses the gloss which is rather great packaging as I love this style gloss since it makes applying so easy. It also features the cute Beauty Credit rocking horse emblem. The sponge tip applicator is a bit on the smallish side but it applies the gloss pretty well regardless.
Auto Gloss has great pigmentation, enough so you don’t have to wear a stain or lipstick beneath however it’s the formula that I find terribly crummy. It’s not at all glossy or shiny and has a slightly silicon feel which ends up making it feel more like a lip color rather than a gloss. I didn’t find it moisturizing but more drying on my lips than anything else.
I suppose if you like a silicon-like gloss you may like this but I’m not a fan. I’ve run into a similar problem with many
Maquillage glosses as well
Beauty Credit remains a fond favorite of mine for price and selection but Auto Gloss was a fail for me. No likey!
Beauty Credit has it’s own website and certain vendors around the world carry the line including ones in New York City if you’re interested in exploring the line further.
Anyone a fan of Beauty Credit?

I reviewed Beauty Credit Lovely Powder Pact Matt for you last year when the weather was warm and humid enough to appreciate a matte powder. The weather is well on it’s way to being warm here again but my skin is quite dry and gross thanks to the harsh Winter. Since my face can use all the moisture it can get it’s difficult to set my foundation with powder when my skin is so terribly dry and tight.
Have no fear, Beauty Credit Lovely Pact Moist to save the day!
Beauty Credit is a Korean line of cosmetics sold in the UK and a few other select countries. The line has everything from skincare, bath and body care, and of course cosmetics. I’ve tried a few various pieces from the cosmetic department and have always been impressed with the great quality for the price. Since I began reviewing Beauty Credit sometime last year I do believe they have since gone from not shipping worldwide to shipping worldwide. Don’t quote me on that but I think they are now which is great if you’re lemming a few items after reading this review.
Lovely Powder Pact Moist is a light, nearly transparent powder with moisturizing vitamin E to keep skin hydrated and refreshed during use. This is particularly a good powder for the Muse who’s suffering from Winter blues skin at the moment. The powder is incredible light weight and doesn’t settle on the skin like a mask. A simple dusting sets my foundation and allows breathable, flawless coverage. The powder is silky smooth and feels quite natural on my skin.
The compact and packaging is of course part of the powder’s appeal. Sporting the Beauty Credit emblem of a rocking horse on both the powder and the compact, this sweet design makes the powder all the more appealing. The compact is a golden shade and comes with a puff and a clear cover that slips over the powder to protect it from the puff and from causing a mess.
With lovely packaging, flawless coverage, and a pretty price of £7 is it any wonder why Beauty Credit Lovely Powder Pact Moist appeals?
Who might like this?
- Anyone who wants a pretty compact to tote around for touch ups!
- Those with dry skin that desires a lighter powder for touch ups and setting foundation.
- Anyone who wants a nice light coverage for makeup application.
- Those who want a quality powder for a little price tag!
This one is well worth checking out for yourself.

Holy cow it was SO humid here in the city on Saturday YAK! I was out with friends and wandering around 34th Street Saturday so I had the chance to put my new Beauty Credit Lovely Powder Pact Matt to the test!
It was pretty darn humid but as the morning turned to afternoon we got major rain fall so my Beauty Credit Lovely Powder Pact Matt was put to the test for sure! Since humidity brings out oily, shiny skin for me this was a great excuse to try out this new powder.
First off the Muse is loving the cute packaging as always Beauty Credit went out of it’s way to create a unique, cute, and pretty package. The powder comes in a silver compact with the Beauty Credit rocking horse emblem on the cover and embedded in the powder itself. Honestly, as cute as the compact is I’m most impressed with the little lid that covers the powder and allows you to place your puff on top. Little things like this always please me to no end as it shows alot of love and consideration went into the making of the product. I simply hate it when companies make an awesome powder and proceed to have no place to put your sponge BUT on top of the powder. It makes a mess doing this plus the mirror gets powder all over it…yak! Total disaster! Lucky for us Beauty Credit kept all these things in mind and proceeded to address them by having a little protective cover for the powder! Perfect!
This particular powder is available in three shade selection all of which contain a good amount of beige to tone down yellow tones. Although the formula is most flattering to Asian skin tones anyone else can easily get away with using this! I always find powders from Japan and Korea an interesting texture thats both light and offers good coverage. In this case the Lovely Powder Pact in Matt is a mattifying powder which is perfect for full coverage if you don’t have a ton to hide. It offers a transparent coverage that gives a very natural finish which is perfect for lighter coverage, touch ups, or to tame shine and oil!
Like most powders of it’s kind this needs a touch up or two after about four to five hours of wear depending on how oily your skin gets. I used my powder as an all over foundation with a bit of blush for my outing on Saturday and through humidity and rain it lasted quite a while before needing a touch up.
Completed look using Beauty Credit Lovely Powder Pact Matt as my foundation with a little bit of Bare Escentuals Blush in Fruit Cocktail
I think the price on this is a key selling point at £7 which is truly a wonderful price tag for a very nice powder.
All in all I love this powder and I’m slapping a Muse Approval on it for purchase! How cute will you be whipping this out of your purse for touch ups!?

Beauty Credit Lovely Q10 Pearl Shine Review
Beauty Credit Lovely Q10 Makeup Fitting Gel Review
Learn more about Beauty Credit Cosmetics
I previously discussed Beauty Credit’s Lovely Q10 Makeup Fitting Gel with you which I simply adored. Today I’m bringing you another makeup base/primer from Beauty Credit entitled Lovely Q10 Pearl Shine Makeup Base.
Beauty Credit’s Lovely Q10 Makeup Fitting Gel is quite different when compared to Pearl Shine Makeup Base. Where as the gel is more of a prep for foundation I felt like the Pearl Shine base was more of a makeup product on it’s own.
The product is meant to be used as prep for your foundation. It’s a wonderful moisturizing cream base that has a subtle pearl shimmer. You can easily use the base as a foundation product with a bit of blush on top for a healthy, glow to cheeks and face or, of course, use it as it was meant as a base for your foundation. Whichever way you choose to use it you’ll notice a subtle glow to your face that’s quite gorgeous.
The packaging is identical to the Beauty Credit Lovely Q10 Makeup Fitting Gel which is a cute, pump style bottle with the Beauty Credit rocking horse emblem on front. The bottles are definately vanity worthy in my humblest opinion. And at £6.50 you can’t beat the price!
I really enjoyed Lovely Q10 Makeup Fitting Gel but I’m actually favoring Lovely Q10 Pearl Shine Makeup Base at the moment for it’s multitasking abilities in creating a rather lovely glow to my face. I tried this out with a bit of cheek stain and it looked rather great all by itself.
All in all another fine, inexpensive, and cute product from Beauty Credit!
Definately Muse Approved for purchase!

Beauty Credit Lovely Q10 Makeup Fitting Gel Review
Did you ever think you could get an awesome makeup base that would cost you £6.50? You can.
Remember how I was raving about Beauty Credit a week or so ago? I got some seriously awesome products from Beauty Credit this week that I’ll be reviewing for you over the course of the next week or so. One of the main things that impressed me with Beauty Credit was the inexpensive price tag, gorgeous selection of cosmetics, and pretty packaging!
Today I’ll be reviewing the Beauty Credit’s Lovely Q10 Makeup Fitting Gel. This I love. I really like primers that sport a beautiful watery texture. I’m not a lover of silicon based primers simply because I feel like I have a mask on and they also happen to break me out a fair bit plus they pill terribly! It looks like my skin is peeling when I wear one yuk!
However, Beauty Credit’s Lovely Q10 Makeup Fitting Gel combines all the elements I love about a primer plus the added benefits of an inexpensive price tag and pretty little packaging! The formula is a light gel base that quickly absorbs into the skin perfectly prepping the skin for your foundation. The gel is beautifully cooling and carries a light, refreshing scent. I’m particularly loving how cooling and gentle this is on the skin. Perfect for humid weather the Muse says! The formula is not greasy or oily which is surprising as some gels tend to leave a tacky film behind. The product simply blends perfectly across the skin and quickly absorbs leaving your skin refreshed and ready for makeup.
As I said the packaging is adorable as well and vanity worthy. It comes in a plastic pump style bottle that appears to be glass. The top and base of the bottle is a beige pink shade. The rocking horse emblem is etched beautifully into the top of the bottle. I love this emblem, it gives the product a certain kawaii factor that the Muse is all over.
As mentioned above the product blends beautifully well into the skin and does a fine job prepping the skin however I did simply LOVE the fact that this not only made my foundation last a full hour longer without touch up but it also helped keep my foundation fresh. My foundation does occasionally go gray or ashy on my skin do to a number of reasons…humidity, heat, stale air, etc..however, Lovely Q10 Makeup Fitting Gel kept my foundation very fresh and I experienced no problems with my foundation the entire day. My foundation normally lasts about five hours without touch up possibly less depending on how much I’m outside however this based allowed it to last an extra hour or two. I actually didn’t bother touching up at all the entire day to see what exactly would happen. When I came home some of my foundation had worn away but my face was still looking fresh.
I love this one and I’ll definately be purchasing it again once my bottle has dwindled down!
I’m sticking a Muse Approval on it for purchase! The Muse loves it and thinks it’s a super steal and a deal!
As per my earlier discussion about Beauty Credit I had mentioned that the items were sold within the UK, Asia, and a few select locations in the US. Turns out Beauty Credit is more local then I realized! It’s right in my backyard and can be found at the following location if you happen to be in New York:
158 Hester Street
New York, NY 10013
Contact Number 212.334.6400
A lovely reader mentioned this so thanks to them for the info!
I haven’t yet headed over there yet but I’m very eager to get there and see what selection they have available!
I’ll be bringing you further Beauty Credit reviews shortly so stay tuned! While you’re waiting do drop by the Beauty Credit Website to see more of the great selection available! UK Residents can order online too!

Round up those CP pals my friends! You’re going to need a CP pal after you hear this.
Muse you always talk about CP’s what the heck does that mean anyway?
Gasp! Some of us aren’t always up to date on our internet lingo so allow me to briefly explain that CP stands for “custom purchase”. This entails a certain individual from another country going out and purchasing an item for you and you either return the favor or you pay them via paypal. After arrangements have been made to either pay them or swap with them your items are sent over and you send any goods over to them and Bob’s your Uncle you have a CP partner!
I’ve done many a fine CP for people and have had many CP’s done for me thanks to people I’ve met on MUA, various makeup forums, etc….
You might remember Laura who runs around England snatching up Bourjois Paris for the Muse and shipping it over. I heart that girl!
The moral of the story is now is a good time to grab your CP partner OR find one on your local makeup board.
Beauty Credit is a brand new brand I came across while watching some Kiss and Makeup TV. Those cheeky monkees, Zara and Gemma, have created major lemmings for me after I viewed their video!
Since the Muse loves Zara and Gemma so much she’ll forgive them this once for making her want to indulge in major amounts of Beauty Credit and roll around in it.
What’s Beauty Credit?
Somang Cosmetics is South Korea’s 5th Large Cosmetic manufacturer and distributor. It began in 1992 with three employees and has since ballooned into 600 employees! Amazing right? Somang Cosmetics has several sub-brands and just as Kanebo in Japan distributes several brands such as Lavshuca, Tiffa, Coffret D’Or, Etc…Somsang Cosmetics has several different brands it’s responsible for manufacturing and disturbing. One of which happens to be Beauty Credit.
My readers in Singapore may recognize Beauty Credit as it is available within Singapore. Beauty Credit is available in 17 countries including the US and Canada (I haven’t personally run across the brand within the US).
As you know from past posts and reviews I’ve done Korean cosmetics are normally two important things, high quality and cheap plus add in very cute and you got cosmetic nirvana. I think we established how much the Muse loves Korean makeup and culture already so of course I jumped all over Beauty Credit when I heard about it!
The good news is I’ll be reviewing some of the line for you shortly. The bad news is that you can’t order it online within the US. Sorry guys. Which is why you’ll need that CP pal across the pond for the hook up of purchasing and sending over some Beauty Credit your way (or if you’re lucky maybe Beauty Credit is available in your area of the US?)
The really good news if you happen to be lucky enough to be English (the Muse wants to be English when she grows up if she can’t she’ll settle for having an English accent and being Asian in her next life…what are the chances I’ll get that lucky?!) you’ll REALLY want to pay close attention to this little brand since it’s very, very cheap. It’s rare you can find quality cosmetics in England at a good price. And this brand is very nicely priced for UK beauty addicts.
I don’t yet know how good the products are but I shall be reviewing them shortly as I mentioned but I’m sure it’ll be fabulous as when have we run across Asian cosmetics that aren’t anything but brilliant right? The line looks very promising and contains bath and body, skincare, and cosmetics. Did I mention they have their own BB Cream too? Promising, very promising!
