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!

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!

The glittery eyeliner in brown is so cute! Definitely glam up my eyes while giving it a softer & more gentle look!

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!

You can definitely see in my photo after applying Precious Mineral Any Cushion, my skin definitely feels fairer and smoother immediately!! 😀 The Pearl Mineral Powder contains pearl (sparkly particles) to make my skin looks brighter from all angles *KIRA KIRA*~ My skin feels hydrated the whole day and doesn’t feel oily. ^^

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

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.

Etude House Precious Mineral Magic Any Cushion Magic Peach [NEW]

Just 3 weeks back, I joined Etude House Global international contest to look for testers to try NEW product that is not yet launched!! They are super efficient and sent me the product within a few days!! 😀

The NEW product is Precious Mineral Magic Any Cushion!!! I think it is not even released in Singapore yet! Hehehehe!!!

Image

Magic Any Cushion is a Moisture-Rich Multi Color Cushion of SPF 34 / PA++! It is available in 3 variations:

– #1 Magic Pink for Pale Skin

– #2 Magic Mint for Covering Redness

– #3 Magic Peach for Brightening and whitening

Magic Any Cushion tones up your skin into brighter and moist full skin. It is a multi-functional tone up base cushion to hold moisture and is very convenient to use! You can use only this or use it as a makeup base!

Baby peach~~~~~~~ baby colors are something I can never resist!!!! I will go “awwwwww~~~”

Image

Image

*Faints from sweetness* Even the puff is pink~~~~~pink~~~ pink~~~~

Image

Remember to lightly pat onto your skin! It feels so good to have a tripod (sponsored by my Sis! lol!) now and I can capture images without holding the camera! Even though my Lumix GF6 has a flipped screen! I need to do a review and share this super awesome camera with you!!

First touch of Magic Any Cushion onto the skin is that it is light and cooling. It also leaves my skin feeling cool after I finished applying my whole face. The texture feels like liquid and it blends in quickly and lightly into my skin. Coverage wise I will say it is not bad since I have minimum dark eye ring and thank goodness I didn’t have any *touch wood* mishap on my face. (Maybe it is due to Skinbiotics supplement?!)

Image

In just less than a minute, I became 5 tones (or more) fairer!!! I took the two photos at the same place, same lighting, and same camera settings!!!

My face skin tone is darker than my body skin, uneven skin tone, and obvious dark eye rings.

On the after picture (right), did I see the skin which is DEWY and fair almost like a korean celebrity!!! LOL!! I can make myself feel happy right!! 😀 Super amazing effects!!! I always wish I have DEWY skin instead of oily/shiny/matte skin!! I always envied the Korean Celebrities, every week when I watched pretty Jihyo Unnie on Running Man and also the actresses in Korean Dramas!!! The actors too!!!!!!!!

[Sidetrack] Did you guys and girls watch “You Who Came From the Star”? lol, super hilarious drama and the other actors who are not the lead did so well too!! I love the Uncle Lawyer the most, also the handsome inspector (because he’s handsome), and the funny girl friend so much!! And the evil hyung is really….. *psycho all written over his face*!! So scary ~~ but I do wanna see him in other dramas now! I finished the series and is currently watching the scary and touching yet funny “Master’s Sun” and “I can hear your voice”. I will say these two are better and more interesting. 😛

Image

OOPS, I apologize for not putting on any eye makeup here…. hahahahah!! Maybe I should take another photo with full makeup on… 😛

“Once you use Cushion, you can never go back to BB cream or other kind of foundation!” ~ Kiyora :P

Dewy and fair korean celeb skin~~ now my wish can come true ~~ Go and join Etude House Global now!!! Maybe it’ll be your chance next time to try out NEW products which are not yet release!!
