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 :>

Etude House: BB Magic Cream!!! MOIST~!

image

Annyeong haseyo!!!~ Oh my magic *magic magic*, My magic *magic magic*, oh my oh my oh my, oh my oh my oh my, oh my hago nollan geol!~ It’s secret timeeee!!! kekeke today’s review will be about a BB Cream that got me curious one day…

image

How will Etude House’s ‘oldest’ version of bb cream fare~ Precious Mineral BB Creams come out each year since I’ve knew Etude~ the original Precious Mineral, Precious Mineral All Day Strong, Bright Fit and this year’s current release.. the Cotton Fit. So I thought to myself…

"mmm why is this BB Magic Cream a main stay from Etude? Must be really good cause it does not have any upgraded versions :))))"

image

Because I have a normal skin type I bought the moisturizing variant :D This particular bb cream focuses more on skin type than skin tone.. It has only 2 variants this Moisturizing one and the Fresh variant for oily skin.

image

Etude House BB Magic Cream Moisturizing offers natural looking coverage that nourishes, corrects skin tone.

image

35ml Promotes flawless complexion for natural “No Makeup Look” with skin soothing and nourishing Aloe Vera, Chamomile and Centella Asiatica.

image

And here are the ingredients ^-^ PARABEN frenzy here~ :))))))

image

Now to distract you from the parabens in the ingredients list~ LOOK at the holographic box!!! COOOL COOOL hypnotizing @.@ parabens??? whut parabens??? :))

HowTo: Back to School Makeup~ Pink Glow!~

image

Annyeong haseyo!!! Today I’ll be sharing my personal makeup style when going to school :) I keep it simple with a dash of sparkle! :D The steps are pretty basic because if you are like me who likes sleep more than makeup in the morning then you don’t have a lot of time to do so much glamorous stuff. As for the color palette, we’ll be playing with shades of pink! This makeup look is leaning more on the natural no-makeup makeup and just enhances what you already have! :>

So let’s get started!~

image

Products I’ll be using: 1. Etude House Collagen Moistfull Emulsion; 2. Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit W24; 3. Etude House Soft Touch Auto Lip liner no. 2; 4. Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Soothing Lip Balm; 5. Etude House Dear Darling Tint 02; 6. Etude House Look at My Eyes Cafe PK001 Peach Latte; 7. Etude House Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Color PK002 Strawberry Chiffon Cake; 8. Revlon Eyeshadow Contour Brush; 9. Etude House Foundation Brush; 10. Etude House Tear Drop Liner 01; 11. Catalinageo Auto Eye Brow Pencil Grey Brown.

image

Maybe you are wondering~~ Why the emulsion is grouped with makeup products~~~ Wae? Well it’s because you could mix it with bb cream!!! I saw it from Get It Beauty Korea! And after I’ve tried it, I’ve been doing this technique ever since! I just love how it superly duperly hydrates my skin! (*Though I do not suggest this if you are not a fan of dewy makeup looks~ cause the BB Bright fit is dewy enough by itself)

image

Mixing the emulsion and the bb cream with this specific foundation brush at the back of your palm will give awesome results. I do not like mixing the products with just my fingers because it does not achieve the proper mix. The tool helps mix the product well, for ex. an egg beater vs your fingers to achieve a scrambled egg :))
