Etude House Double Lasting Foundation. I squeezed out too much as you can see how thick it became when I spread it out. 😛

The coverage is definitely awesome as you can see how even my hand look after using it. Thank you!

Witch’s Pouch ❤ Love Me Blusher ❤

Love how radiant and natural it looks on my healthy colour skin! The brush applicator is so soft and easily applied on my cheeks!

In this picture,  I am using the Etude House Long Lasting Foundation! See what I mean about even and pretty looking skin! <3

On my eyes, you can also see my current favourite Eyeshadow from Aritaum and also Makeup Helper eyeliner!

Love the middle one the most which I used as a base as it is so sparkly!

This intensed striking red lip tint is nothing like a normal tint! The colour is super long-lasting and kept the colour on my lips even after meals! Just awesome colour for Chinese NewYear! I just find this a little too thick when I first applied which I am not so used to.

Last but not least, what caught my eyes immediately when I opened the Althea Christmas box are these 3D Shape Shading and Highlighter palettes from W. Lab. Such cute and interesting packaging yeah!

THEFACESHOP Oil Control Water Cushion

THEFACESHOP Singapore is super creative with their media kit as always!!! They sent me a Safari zoo, Kim Soo Hyung, book… etc this time, they sent me a SWIMMING POOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL LOL!!!!!!! 😛 😛 😛

thefaceshopoilcontrolcushion

<3 Sebum control. Even & Full coverage. Lightweight. <3

This time round, the highlight is actually THEFACESHOP latest addition to its Cushion Foundation range – The Oil Control Water Cushion SPF 50+/PA+++. This cushion foundation is targeted at ladies whom are concerned about sebum control, and prefer their makeup to have fresh mattifying effects. <3

Existing cushion base products in the market are mainly formulated with BB and CC creams which focus on providing radiance and a glowy finish. Such finishes may be frustrating for customers with oily skin type as it may cause them to look shiny instead of glowy!!! 🙁
thefaceshopoilcontrolcushion2

THEFACESHOP’s Oil Control Water Cushion SPF 50+/PA+++ is formulated with foundation and contains Sebum Cut Powder which controls sebum and visually erases imperfections. It is clinically tested to be perspiration-proof and is able to maintain coverage and UV protection even in contact with perspiration. This is perfect for a sunny and humid country like Singapore and also Malaysia!!!

Worried that the Sebum control abilities will turn your skin overly dry? You do not have to worry!!!!

The Oil Control Water Cushion is enriched with Dolomiti Italain Pure Mineral Water that keeps skin hydrated, and Clear Tasmanian Water that boost skin immunity and cellular renewal!

THEFACESHOP’s Oil Control Water Cushion SPF 50+/PA+++ also comes with a LG patented micro foam cushion! The memory foam holds the foundation and creates a high definition finish as it is 4x denser than regular sponges. It is also able to keep foundation fresher as it prevents the foundation from drying out quickly.

OMG… my skin, my hair, my eyebrow …. lol lol! I need to make appointment to touch up my black roots and facial!!!! LOL! Thank goodness I will transform in a bit as you scroll down… 😛

thefaceshopselfiedemo

There are 2 shades available V201 & V203, and the colour I received was V203. I belong to the healthy tan. 😀

I usually still apply sunblock before foundation, and the one I was using is TheFaceShop Sebum Control Sunblock! The application of the Oil Control Water Cushion is as per other cushion, using a tapping movement. ???

thefaceshopdemo

Here you can see how clean and refreshing (hydrated) my skin looks like below after using the Oil Control Water Cushion! I almost feel like I am not wearing anything makeup thanks to the very light texture! My skin does not feel oily nor dry but feels hydrated and clean for long hours even though I am cropped in air-conditioned 3/4 of the day! I can touch my face at any time and don’t feel sticky at all!

thefaceshopselfie

I must also give credit to the coverage! You can see that my nose and chin has acne and scars but they are covered up pretty well! 😀 😀

I am a #fail beauty blogger since I don’t know how to use concealer…. highlights… you name it. Haha~~Thank you for still reading my blog even though I am so inexperienced!!!!! ??

THEFACESHOP’s Oil Control Water Cushion SPF 50+/PA+++ is now available at SGD$29.90 in all THEFACESHOP outlets at!! Refills are at SGD$20.90~~ I think refill should be priced a little lower though 😛

Be back later my beautifuls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

♥ ETUDE HOUSE ♥ AC Clinic Intense Pink Powder Spot + Precious Mineral BB Cream Perfect Fit

Hello Girls and Boys!!!!!!!!! As promised in my previous post, I will try my best to update my blog at least twice a week! 😛 I also decided that I’ll share with you a quote at the start of my blog every time from now on! One of the quotes that I shared earlier this week! Everyday should be this kind of day! 🙂

Time for #aquoteaweek! Everyday should be this kind of day!

A post shared by 👑陳秀慧🌸堂本キヨラ🦄 최수희🐱 (@xkiyora) on

This time round, I want to share with you 2 products from ETUDE HOUSE amongst the generous amount of products I was given!! <3 Thank you COZYCOT and ETUDEHOUSE~~ <3

P1230058

The two products that I want to share in this entry are the AC Clinic Intense Pink Powder Spot & Precious Mineral BB Cream Perfect Fit!


♥ ETUDE HOUSE ♥ AC Clinic Intense Pink Powder Spot 

P1230078

Formulated with Salicylic Acid and Hinoki Cypress, AC Clinic delivers trouble care. Pink Powder alleviates trouble swelling on contact to minimize damage.

P1230081

Comes with cotton swabs for application.

Directions

Do not shake bottle. After facial care, allow powder to settle at the bottom. Perpendicularly dip cotton swab into bottle to draw powder form bottle.

P1230005

Use swab to dab trouble spots and acne with swab tip to coat with powder. I had a painful acne on my forehead and the AC Clinic Intense Pink Powder Spot came at a useful time! You can see the collage as per below.

P1230002

Picture 1: You can see my acne on my forehead

Picture 2: Apply a layer of Pink Powder spot on affect area

Picture 3: On the morning after I woke up, and you can see that the acne has improved much better just after 1 night.

Picture 4: On Day 2, the acne is almost gone after using the AC Clinic Intense Pink Powder Spot! YAY! 😀

Some caution to take note of when using the product.

  1. For external use only.
  2. Avoid contact with eyes.
  3. Keep out of reach of children.
  4. Discontinue use if signs of irritation and/or rash appear.

♥ ETUDE HOUSE ♥ Precious Mineral BB Cream Perfect FitP1230062

This BB Cream comes with a “double layer cover formula” that perfectly covers imperfections and areas with uneven skin tone for smooth, bright, and flawless skin.

Directions

Apply Precious Mineral BB Cream Perfect Fit to all areas of the face. Pat to finish.

On the picture below, I actually applied too much for my hand surface. 😛 And you can clearly see the difference between the before and after!!

P1230063

REVIEW: Somehow the Precious Mineral BB Cream Perfect Fit just need like pea-size to apply for my whole face! I don’t know why and I am super amazed by how soft and smooth as it blends very easily and evenly onto my skin! As promised, my skin tone becomes brighter and smooth!! Also, the Precious Mineral BB Cream Perfect Fit is the only makeup for my face and it amazingly lasted the whole day staying flawless without the need to touch-up! LOVE IT! <3

Below are 2 unedited photos of me using the Precious Mineral BB Cream Perfect Fit without flash and with flash! I am very particular about how a foundation looks like on the photos especially with flash! I don’t want to look like a ghost or have cakey patchy looking skin. The Precious Mineral BB Cream Perfect Fit looks so perfect on photos without any difference between my face and neck even though I didn’t apply on my neck.

P1230017P1230018

Last but not least, here are some cautions to take note of when using it. 😉

  1. Use only as directed.
  2. Avoid storing in high and low temperatures and areas exposed to direct sunlight.
  3. Cease use if problems arise.
