Etude House: CC {Correct & Care} Cream SPF 30/PA++ #01 Silky!~

image

Annyeong haseyo! We’re already at the middle of the week! I hope all you royals keep on shining till we reach the weekend! kekeke <3 Today’s review will be something that really made noise in the beauty world! We all can’t get enough of BB Creams and since we are humans, we needed to create the next big thing~ thus the rise of the CC Creams~

image

The abbreviation may have different meanings depending on the brand, color and correct, color control, color changing etc. etc. But Etude House decided to make the CC stand for Correct & Care.

image

The secret of Girl group singers of their bright face outside of TV, CC Cream. It is an abbreviation of “Correct” & “Care” Cream which gives both Skin Care and Makeup effect at once for instant Skin Color Tone correcting and Skin Condition Care.

image

This one, which I got from the Princess Academy Event, is #1 Silky variant~ :D Etude has 2 variants of this!

Etude House: Sweet Recipe Chocolate Highlighter!~

image

Annyeong haseyo! Today’s review will be about a sweet sweet yummy looking product from Etude House’s Sweet Recipe Collection~ I got this during their launch <3 kamsa hamnida!

image

By far the cutest yummiest collection to date! The Sweet Recipe Collection is inspired by the Brothers Grimm Classic Fairy Tale ‘Hansel & Gretel’ this sweet colored and delicious dessert designed makeup collection is fun, fun, fun for everyone!

image

You’re invited to the Sweet Cookie House with irresistible desserts and delicious colors.

image

{Allure:} Cream colored highlighter comes in three shades and white chocolate bar design.

image

This white chocolate-toned highlighter comes with subtle pearls that provide luminous shimmery skin.

image

This really smells like white chocolate! Which is pretty cool!!! :D So when you dust this on your face, you’ll be delighted! <3 It has Wax Coating for a long lasting expression~

image

The packaging is obviously super cute! But the paper box concept seems fit only on the makeup table because I’m afraid that if I lug it around with me, it’ll deteriorate and get squished!

image

This gradation pearl-infused highlighter features white, cream and frosting tones! The texture is a combination of softness, creaminess and finishes off to a powdery finish!

Etude House: Color Pop Shine Tint #04 Coral Pop + Bling in The Sea Proof10 Bling Eye StickBL601 Blue Wave!~

image

Annyeong haseyo! Today’s review will be about “magical" things from Etude House! These two where included in the press kit which I got in one of Etude House’s event (Princess Academy).

image

The first one is Etude House’s Color Pop Shine Tint #04 Coral Pop

image

The packaging reminds me of retro prints! Snazzy!~

image

Colorful + Fun + Trendy = Color Pop!

This is a 3-in-1 magic gloss tint that glides on in a perfect combination of smoothness and shine, with a lip stain formula that provides vivid color and long-lasting shine.

image

The shade I got is #04 Coral Pop.

image

Even though the box exudes cuteness~ the product itself was pretty plain looking. The box actually looks better… :))

image

Looks so plain and the lettering makes me dizzy~ @.@ hypnotic~ I wished that they adapted the packaging of their other tints!

image

{Howto:} Use tip to gather and apply tint. Apply extra layer for added coverage.

image

The sponge tip applicator is nicely built. And the shape of the tip is great! It scoops up a decent amount of product and feels just so soft on the lips ^-^

image

It’s slightly bent so that application is easier~ :) The scent reminds me of the orange twin pops!!!! <3 Reminds me of an Ice Popsicle!!! Too bad that it doesn’t taste like it :))

image

I am so impressed with the coverage of this! Even though the color is very subtle the color payoff is superb! My super pigmented lips got covered! Smoothness check! Shine check! It’s lasting power is not that amazing cause it transfers easily, maybe because of its gloss properties.

I do have a slight concern with the product~ upon applying it on my lips I feel a tingling sensation that fades~ But it still bothers me cause it happens every time ~,~

image

I love using this more as a cheek stain than a lip stain~ kekeke it gives a nice peachy orangey stain on cheeks :> And because of its liquid-creamy like consistency, you have time to blend it nicely.

image

You could choose from 5 shades from the Color Pop Collection! Pretty shades that play with the pink and orange hues.  7 grams of product will expire 12 months after opening and costs 478 pesos a tube!

Package Received: Cleocat Fashion!~

image

Annyeong haseyo! One delightful afternoon, after arriving home from school I saw this grey package on the coffee table… And immediately assumed that it was the package I was waiting for from Singapore! Horay for assuming! (^-^)/~ Korean fashion shop!

                 image

Cleocat-fashion started its humble beginnings selling fashion wares on EBay Singapore in 2006. Our business grew and it was apparent that in order to support our growing customer base, we needed to have our very own website.
It has been more than 7 fruitful years since we first started and we look forward to expanding our product collections to serve your fashion needs.
-Cleocat Fashion

image

Murphy, the owner was so generous to let me choose items from their whole website! :) Kamsa hamnida!!!! I really had a hard time choosing my final picks because everything was just so pretty <3 The dresses and tops especially!

                   image

Their product sample shots^ These earrings are very unique cause they  give an illusion of floating charms by your ear :D

image

Actual item shipped :) It looks the same as the one on the product sample shot but the only differences were:

  • The gem in the middle was more cloudy and looked more purple than pink
  • The lock but I prefer the lock that was included in the actual item than the one on the photo because locks like those sometimes irritate my ear XD

But overall this is a sure cute ear piece! <3

Etude House: Bling in the Sea Magical Kiss!~

image

Annyeong haseyo mermaids! It’s scorching hot this afternoon @.@ So this line is perfect for this hot hot September day!

Etude House is always creating lines that will tickle any little girl’s heart! Make that any one who is young at heart! And they recently came up with a collection that is derived from fairy tales. Introducing Bling in the Sea, a sparkling, arcane story of a Little Mermaid under the sea.

image

A little mermaid lived in an arcane sea-world and while she was looking around the shore, she fell in love with a prince at the first sight.

The little mermaid visited Ursula, sea-witch, to ask her for help and Ursula said “ I’ll give you this bright jewel box filled with the twinkling of the sea, but the twinkling will burst like a bubble after 3 days and will spread out in the world.”

 The little mermaid adorned herself with sparkling and the prince fell in love eventually.

On the third day, the little mermaid generously spread all the sweet and happy things that she could get from the sparkling and shared it with everyone in the world.

Now, ETUDE introduces the dazzling sparkle to public.

image

A little mermaid-inspired sparkling love story under the sea.

image

The Bling in the Sea collection consists of eye, face and lip makes and as well as a nail polish collection. What’s special about the Bling in the Sea Sparkling Nails is that these are limited edition!

image

{Feature:}

  1. Fancy Glitter Nail Polishes- It shines and sparkles with plenty of glitters that reflects lights, and each color has different color, size, and texture of glitter so it shows different result.
  2. Non-chip, long-lasting effect- Sparkling nail color maintained much longer with stronger adhesion of base so it is not chipped easily even in the water .
  3. The best ratio of glitter and color base- The best  ratio makes it possible to apply color base cleanly and apply glitter softly.

image

image

The shape of the polish bottle is pretty plain, but good thing they adorned it with pretty prints like this! :D

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.
