Althea – Christmas and New Year Edition

althea2

Thanks to Tammy from sg.althea.kr  I received my first box of Korean Cosmetics from Allthea for Christmas and New Year! I know that Christmas had passed for almost 2 months but better late than never. 😛 I’ve actually also shared some of the products and swatches on my instagram.

Althea offers k-beauty selections at the lowest price to consumers and strives to become the gateway to the world, most favored by K-beauty suppliers!

Check out the many awesome Korean products below:

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!

7 Hara My 1st Tint in Maple Red!

7haramy1sttint3

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello! I hope you have a lovely day and February ahead!!! <3 This time round,  I want to share with you my current makeup obsession – none other than 3 Concept Eyes (3CE) cosmetics from Korea!!!!! So many people around me had been raving to me about 3CE and I was really skeptical!!! How can it be sooooooooo good that everyone is crazy about it!

3ce

THEN… .I WAS TOTALLY SOLD when I tried the first 3CE lipstick Bella and it changed my life entirely. LOL LOL LOL!!!!!!!! So I am slowly in the journey to buy more 3CE cosmetics!!

❤ 3CE Dot Lip Colour Bella #501❤

Here it is, the true love of my life for lipstick. This Vampire Burgundy Colour transform dull makeup into a unique and chic make up.

I’ve shared about BELLA in December and this is definitely one colour that I use very frequently since it is so unique and gives me a mature and sexy look. *MUAHAHAH* This is the sexiest I can be~~~~ lol!! I highly highly recommend this since it is definitely one in a million kind of colour!!! <3

❤ 3CE Dot Lip Colour CREAMY LIP COLOR #12 Me Me❤

Extreme moisture lip colour that melts as soon as it touches the lips . With the essence ingredients, transparent and rich colours are rendered at the same time creating a very smooth lip color.

A candy pink you want to use even by just looking at it. A shiny pink that goes well on one of those lovely days, to help create that precious and lovely image.

3ce-lipstick-meme

This colour is just so cute and sweet!! I just love the range of 3CE lip colours available!! Every single is so pretty and I really have a difficult time choosing!! Here you go, a sweet and lovely pink! It indeed makes me happy looking at this beautiful colour! 😀

❤ 3CE Dot Lip Colour Air Balloon #801 ❤

Creamy Textured Pinkish Coral that brings to mind the image of balloons floating on clear, blue sky! This pinkish base mixed in with coral that blends into Asian skin tones makes it even more wearable.

3ce-lipstick-air-balloon

This coral colour is so bright and cheery! It totally brings out the bubbly, energectic and positive side of me! This colour totally pops and I love this colour so so much too! I am totally in love with 3CE~~~ ^^

A natural gloss, this pink beam highlighter gives you a vibrant and moist skin.

3ce-pink-highlighter

The texture is creamy and adhere to my cheek easily! 😀 It may not be obvious on the picture (even though I already used flash) but my friends commented that it makes have glossy/glowing looking cheeks! HAHA, I said maybe I should apply to my whole face so that I can look super glowing!!!!! 😛 I will also highly recommend this!!!!!

3ce highlighter 2

Do you know where you can get 3CE in Singapore?? I am pleased to share with you that 3CE is available exclusively in SaSa!!!! You no longer have to buy from online stores like Stylenanda, Luxola or 65emall anymore! 😛 You can now try all the beautiful 3ce products and lip colours and not just buy based on internet pictures or Bloggers’ swatches. *GOES GAGA at SASA*

Being like super internet-shopping savy, I always try to compare items in various sites so that I can have the best deals! This is also the reason why I know 3CE cosmetics is available at so many websites. ^^ However, they are all priced differently and shipping rates also vary.

Since my motto in life to “Enjoy shopping while saving money“, of course I want to get the best deals! I was then introduced to Cuponation that provides the best coupons and offers for many brands! I am not sure if you heard about Lazada.sg before, but I spent many hours browsing through this site that sells everything from fashion, cosmetics, to electronics at a very crazily cheap price. I saw some clothes that are going as low as S$3.80!! CRAZY MUCH?!!

My cousin just ordered something and I’ll see how is the quality!! You can also find Lazada.sg e-coupons at Cuponation!! I am so happily shopping online for my Chinese New Year stuff!! Enjoy shopping while saving money~~ 😀

P1140808

And many many other skincare products from CLIV!! *I WANT THEM ALL*

P1140809

Even moreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee products from CLIV!! XD So many products that made my eyes dizzy!!! I will definitely want to try the mask!!!!

P1140811

CLIV Overseas Sales Manager, Mr Lee also shared with us his tips for having flawless skin. SERIOUSLY, KOREANS HAVE FLAWLESS SKIN!! I am super jealous!!!! I think it is quite impossible for us in Singapore to have flawless skin unless you stay indoors 24/7 with cooling temperature at home. :/

What we can do is to use product suitable for our skin, hydrate both our face and body, do weekly scrub(s), and sunblock sunblock!!!

We also have the chance to try out all the CLIV testers at the event!

 

 

 

 

 

P1140820

I applied the revitalizing stemcell BB cream at the top part of my hand and you can see how that part looks so much smoother as compared to rest of my hand!

P1140824

The ampoules has different texture and I like the yellow bottle (white texture)! It got absorbed into my skin super quickly and left my skin feeling cool!!!! So cool!! XD

P1150357

Also received CLIV products but I haven’t started using them yet!! Most probably will pass the BB Cream to my sister since my skin is oily and not dry~~~ I am scared that it will become oilier if I use it. XD One tip about any skincare/bb cream, choose whichever is suitable for you!! If you are not sure about your skin type, you can visit SaSa and their Beauty Advisers can advise you. 😉

CLIV Premium Ginseng Berry Premium Ampoule and Eye Cream

Ginseng Berry Premium System contains the fermented ginseng berry dubbed as the 21st Century elixir and pure plant based material to tighten and purify the dull and saggy skin enhancing the elasticity and complexion!!

P1150358

CLIV Premium Ginseng Berry Premium Ampoule: Helps strengthen skin energy

With various plant based effective ingredients are combined in skin to hydrate and brighten the skin texture!

P1170181

The texture is really light and is absorbed quickly into my skin. My skin immediately feels smoother and softer immediately upon application.  You just need a little drop for your whole face and bid dull and saggy skin away. I will recommend this product if you are looking for anti-aging skincare product. But if you are like still young, it may be too rich for your skin. (now i wish i am young lol)

 

P1170179

CLIV Premium Ginseng Berry Premium Eye Cream: Nourishes the saggy skin around eyes to become smooth

Eye cream is a super super important skincare product!! I admit that sometimes I skipped this step~~~ >_< But after using the CLIV Premium Gingseng Berry Eye Cream, I become more diligent!! I super love the mild floral scent and it also provides a cooling and relaxing effect on my eyes after applying it. Due to its texture, my eye area also become brighter instantly!!

You can get CLIV  exclusively at SaSa Singapore!
