Etude House: Precious Mineral BB Cream Cotton Fit SPF30/PA ++ Honey Beige W24.

image

Annyeong haseyo!!! I spent a great day today <3 BUT SPENT MY MONEY IN THE WRONG MALL huhuhu </3 Shangri-la why did you have a sudden 2NE1 promo without telling me </3 If I knew </3 If I only knew </3 oh well papel at least I got to jump start my 5 piece French wardrobe attempt hihi <3 Will post more details about that soon, but for now~ A BB CREAM REVIEW <3

image

The Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Cotton Fit SPF30/PA ++ was launched last year and I got this only a few months ago because I was still loving the Bright Fit <3 

image

This time around, instead of carrying 4 shades of bb cream the Cotton Fit carried only 3. N02 Light Beige, W13 Natural Beige and W24 Honey Beige. I chose W24 Honey Beige which is the same bb shade with my previous Bright Fit. But I did notice that even though the shade names were the same, the shades for the Cotton Fit are a bit lighter than the Bright Fit.

image

3 Efficacies: Whitening & Anti-Wrinkle, Anti-Darkening.

This all-day pearly bright skin BB Cream perfectly glides onto skin providing clear and bright complexion with a smooth, cotton-like powdery finish for flawless skin.

MeToday: Frozen Summer + Hayan Korea & Etude House PH Packages.

image

Annyeong haseyo!!! SUMMER SUMMER HEAAATTT! Omo the heat is so draining. So here are a few activities that my super happy friends and I did to stay off the heat.

^Those are candies by the way! <3 Made In Candy candies in action!

image

Do some malling, and we did! <3 Well you could definitely use a treat after studying two whole sems! Hihi <3 My personal quote to make me feel better about shopping haha. It doesn’t matter if you’ll be window shopping or do some real hardcore shopping cause you’ll definitely feel cooler when inside the malls~ <3 hihi at least I do! <3 Aircon!! (^-^)/

Oh and I just posted a Canmake Tokyo by Somera Intro post a few days ago and I just couldn’t help myself from going back. Got their super fab Face Brush (P600.00) and their Lash Care Essence (P450.00). The pretty pretty jacket is from Uniqlo…. ice skating later on… didn’t bring any jacket… no problemo! Ahhh And it’s a hoodie perfect for summer too! It has UV CUT (UPF40) meaning that it has UV filtration features! <3 It will take 40 times longer to get sunburned with a rating of 40. It’s made of Supima Cotton too <3

image

After we finished malling, the next great step was to eat. Hihihi kimchi!!! We were fans of Kaya, a Korean restaurant, and we wanted to know if it still tasted like before </3 I like spicy dishes and I can’t eat them when the room temperature is crazy hot, so eat these in the mall hohoho

image

Ordered a bowl of bibimbap and ramyun. The side dishes really are the best <3 hahahaha my fave is the kimchi strips at the middle. The bibimbap was ok~~~ but not like before huhu.

image

At trip to an Ice Cream Bar is definitely a must when it’s this hot! After lunch we headed out to SM Aura to try the Magnum Manila Cafe.

image

M for mmmm yummy haha.

image

One of the walls featured a letter M made out of Magnum popsicle sticks! Too bad some of the sticks were broken off…

image

The place was designed by Ed Calma. Which explains the  sleekness factor.

image

This is the Make Your Own Magnum Dessert Bar. It’s meant for take-outs but you could stay on the armchairs at the side to munch comfortably.

image

A wide variety of toppings to choose from :) Dried mangoes, chili flakes, grape nerds and such.

image

You’ll first be picking a max of 3 toppings (maximum of 3 so that it’ll stick better on the Magnum bar).

image

Then choose the ice cream flavor and ice cream coating <3

image

COOL <3 Dip it real good! After the big dip, the pleasure maker will sprinkle the toppings and ask for the flavor of the drizzle~

Etude House: Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit W24!~

image

Annyeong haseyo!!! Today’s review will be about Etude House’s Precious Mineral BB Cream All Day Strong’s “improved formula” the Bright Fit! Almost every year I think Etude House comes up with a brand new type of Precious Mineral! From the just plain Precious Mineral, to the All Day Strong, to this Bright Fit and this year’s newest release the Cotton Fit!

image

My ultimate BB Cream was the All Day Strong, after using it all up, it became my standard when testing out a new bb cream! It’s my ultimate favorite so when it got phased out :’( boohuhu~ But seeing that this is the new and improved formula and it still carries the Precious Mineral tag, then might as well test it out!

image

Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit SPF 30 PA++

Precious Mineral BB Cream promotes silky complexion with pearl infused sheer coverage. Contain-sadenosine & arbutin for anti-wrinkle & whitening efficacies. SPF for UV protection.

Brightening OK! Darkening Zero!~

Tony Moly: The Oriental Gyeol Goun Two-Way Pact SPF 48 PA+++ & BB Cream SPF 46 PA++

image

Annyeong haseyo! Time for a traditional oriental makeup review! <3 I got this from Tony Moly’s Holiday Token last Christmas :> and now that I am almost hitting pan I think I could give a full justified review! :D

image

FANCY (^-^)/ The packaging looks so beautiful and magical!

image

So this compact and bb combo are from the same Oriental Gyeol concept line as the Oriental Gyeol Whitening Cream only difference is that, that one for whitening. Both has Cheongyeol Boyundan which is a skin care herbal formula that soothes skin and makes the skin texture smooth while giving it also a bright and transparent look.

{Highlighted Ingredients:} Hirudinea Extract/ Cheongyeol Boyundan / Antler Collagen Water 38%/ 12 Kinds of Herbs / 5-color powder/ Snail Secretion Filtrate

image

The Oriental Gyeol Goun has 3 shade variants :) This one 01 Skin Beige the lightest from the three.

image

image

So pretty <3 I give the box a perfect 100/10 in package design! Wait till you guys see the compact <3

image

When you buy the Oriental Gyeol Goun Two Way Pact there’s an included partner bb!

image

OMO looks so nice and fancy <3

image

The packaging is really nice and is line with the whole Oriental Gyeol Goun line :) The included bb cream contains 20 grams of product and when you buy the full size (P1578.00) you’ll get 50 grams :)

image

The Oriental Gyeol Goun BB Cream SPF 46 PA++

This high-quality BB Cream will make your skin healthy so that it appears bright and revitalized. The active ingredients of concetrated traditional Korean herbal substances such as Cheongyeol Boyundan, and five-color powder will conceal skin blemishes and dull complexions.

Gyeol BB cream has the most effective covering effect amongst all the other bb creams from Tony Moly. Heavy-duty covering effect Moist and firm wrinkle care, whitening & UV ray protection.

image

{5free formula}: Talc, Mineral oil, Organic dye, Benzophenone, Petrolatum

image

I don’t know why but it always gets this messy whenever I open it ~_~

image

Obviously the color does not match my skin :)) Though it smells nice :) Like traditional herbs and actually smells like red ginseng!

image

The cream spreads on quite nicely and does offer a nice coverage. Just not my color.

image

There is a greyish color on it~ And with the flash on it still gives a nice coverage and was still pretty much the same color without flash. If it was just my color then I’d be super happy slathering this all over my face.

Too Cool For School: SM North Grand Opening!~

image

Whut, whut? Are you too cool for school? Well if you are, then head on over to the newly opened branch of too cool for school at SM North Edsa!

image

{Brand Story}

Too Cool For School traces its roots to Myeongdong clothing, an embodiment of Korea’s street fashion, which leads Korea’s fashion and beauty trend for over 30 years. They are actually pretty new to the market! TCFS was officially launched on 2009 in Seoul, Korea and quickly gained a lot of followers!

image

TCFS is a beauty and lifestyle brand conveying the needs of the new generation. The name itself is also unique, when you hear the word “school” you will think of a place where students are gathered to learn, but the word is rooted from the meaning ‘a group of fish’, meaning Too Cool for School is the coolest among the group, being differentiated and unique!

image

WHICH EXPLAINS THE FISH!!! :) Well, now the fish cardboard cut outs make sense! You are too cool for fish!

image

Now that all the confusion is cleared out~ They still designed their products in such a way that you’ll be reminded of school! :D

image

And look how creepily cute their displays are! ^-^

image

The beheaded doll reminded me of Toy Story XD Look at that master piece!

image

The interior leans on the industrial style with pendant lights, exposed tubes and polished cement walls.

image

I LOVE THESE DROP LIGHTS <3

image

I just looooove their interior! :D

image

image

image

Isn’t it obvious that I love their lighting fixtures~ :))

image

Grand opening was a success! Look at how many customers they had!

Hayan Korean Cosmetics: The Science of Korean Beauty

image

Annyeong haseyo! Today I was able to make a quick visit to Hayan Korea’s SM Masinag branch (which is newly opened by the way!) Have you heard of Hayan Korea? Well Hayan Korea is a rather new brand to me also! And discovering a new brand is always delightful because it keeps everything fresh and interesting!

image

{So what is Hayan Korea?}

Hayan /하얀 / means “naturally fair” or “clearly white” in Korean. It is a word that best represents what our company stands for.

We are dedicated to providing active, innovative and effective beauty care for our clients that let them have that naturally clear and beautiful skin. We combine years of expertise and research to ensure our products contain high-quality ingredients to deliver maximum results. We strive to offer the purest, most effective skin care through nature, research and science. Our Concept Store mainstreams skin care essentials such as facial foaming cleansers, toners, serums and moisturizers. The store also boasts of a sophisticated collection of wellness and over-all body basics including varied selections of high-quality make-up, alongside cross-over revolutionary star products.

image

They really made an effort to beautify their store but the lighting was pretty weird because it makes the products look darker than it should be~ Also!!! They should place more mirrors wherein you don’t have to bend forward to look at yourself -.- I also suggest putting price tags on the testers so that customers won’t have to ask and ask about the prices (shy lonely customers like me prefers to actually be left alone when choosing products XD)

image

So first up! The nail polishes! I was not able to try them because I had my polish on~ But the colors are pretty! Well that is because most of them are in the shade of pink >,<

image

A bottle costs 98 pesos as their introductory price! The normal price range for Korean Nail Polishes~

image

Pretty eyeshadow colors ^-^ omo the shades are really nice!

image

image

They have a really nice selection of lip shades! I took most of my time choosing just one shade! They have pinks, reds, a nude (the nude color is very pretty and won’t make you look sick) and oranges!

image

They only had 4 shades of lip glosses but I think it’s enough! They have a pink one, a hot red one (super cool!!!), a clear one, and one that has glitters :>
