Before the love month end I would like to share my review, first impression and a quick make up tutorial on my newest special box from Althea Korea. I’m so happy that they’re been experimenting different variety of products, I can still remember when they first launched their skin care collection and I’m so proud of their newest collection.
This post is all about their make-up box that I’ve been playing with since I received it last January. Inside the box contains 4 shades of creamy concealer, 2 glittered eye liner, a spot film gel, 4 shades of watercolor cream tint and an eye palette (8 shades) in collaboration with Bunga Citra Lestari.
Althea Flawless Creamy Concealer
Creamy concealer that is perfect for everyday make up look. What I notice about this product is the wand applicator is too thin to spread the product on the desired area. The formula is not that thick and streaky which I was disappointed since I expect it actually covers my blemishes like what other creamy concealer do. I was having a hard time blending and baking my under eye because my skin can’t absorb the product well, maybe because of my hormones that day (usually my skin is shitty on red days) the scent is amazing and not overpowering the foundation or bb cushion I used. I love that it has 4 different shades (Vanilla, Ginger, Mocha and Honey) that I can use to define and highlight my entire face. Though I didn’t had a chance to use Honey since it was too dark for my skin tone.
Althea Spotlight Eye Glitter
I love that Althea launched a make-up collection but of all the collection this was my least favorite because the formula was not that great and I was trying really hard to create a glittered eye liner but it was so streaky and runny, the glitter was all over my eyelid. But instead of using it as an eye liner, I use it on my inner corner and on my lid as a shimmer.
Althea Watercolor Cream Tint
I love this product so much I use it on my everyday look, on my cheeks and I also use it on my eyelid whenever I feel brave to rock a red winged eyeliner. This product is so pigmented It can last up to 6 hours without re applying the product.
Althea Skin Relief Spot Film Gel
A film gel protection for your irritating skin. It can give a layer of protection before applying your make-up.
Althea x bcl Eye Palette Sunrise & Moonrise
A cute eye palette that can fit your everyday make up bag. Perfect for a night and morning look. Comes in 8 beautiful shade with five shimmer shadow, one matte and 2 glittered eye shadow. This eye palette is so pigmented, I was so amazed when I did finger swatches and after applying it all over my eyelids. What I don’t like is the fallout seemed unavoidable and can sometimes ruin a perfectly blended and baked under eye.
