Full face using Althea Dried Rose Box + Unboxing
Hello everyone, welcome back to another episode of Full Face Makeup + Unboxing/First Impression Review. Yesterday, I received Althea Dried Rose Box from the LBC delivery man. The box shipped date SEPT. 19, 2017 from KOREA and it takes 6 working days before it arrived in the Philippines. I got it SEPT. 27, 2017. Wow, Ang bilis (fast shipping yay!) hehe
This is my 5th already and you can check my other boxes here. If you’re not familiar with Althea, they are creating themed makeup boxes that you can buy at a lower price. That means you receive 5 full size item for a price of a single product. In Dusty Rose Box, the palette itself is the cost of the whole beauty box! Amazing, right? That’s the reason why I LOVE Althea. Just giving you a quick idea if you’re new to online shopping.

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Care Kit Review
Enriched with volcanic cluster and green complex from the pure Jeju island, this line helps control excessive sebum for soft skin.
MY EXPERIENCE: This pore care kit from Innisfree comes with cotton pads, facial foam wash and toner. First impression, I love the smell of the facial foam. I love applying it with Nella Black & Black pore brush. It has tiny beads and lathers very well, only a little bit tingly sensation beside my nose when I let it soak on my face for more than 2 minutes. I also got redness on some of my blemishes which fade after a few minutes. After rinsing it, I used a tissue to pat dry and it feels smoother and cleaner. Then I used the facial toner to double cleanse. The toner doesn’t sting, since it is a good combination with a facial foam. It helps my face tighter and softer. I noticed the quick effect because it minimizes the appearance of my pores. Leaving a fresh canvas on my go-to make up.
NAIL: With Shyan Nail Lacquer
MY EXPERIENCE: The color complements the dusty rose makeup look, one of my favorite color of all times. It looks more intense on second coats and it dries real fast. Let it dry first when layering for smooth application otherwise it tends to go tacky. Apply a good top coat to make it last long.
MAKE UP: Bareblanc Moisture Lock Foundation
MY EXPERIENCE: I have the shade no. 23. It’s a little bit lighter on my skin tone so I have to fix it with darker setting powder to match with my skin tone. Aside from oily skin, I also sweat a lot and the foundation has a dewy finish so the powder will help with the durability of the product. Besides, I think the Innisfree pore care kit helps foundation makes my pores disappears. It looks flawless, blemish free, nevertheless, my pimple marks still noticeable. The foundation has light to medium coverage. It felts light weight and not sticky at all. Wear time is up to 6 hours with a bit of oil in the centre of my face. It melts like natural looking skin tone and I love it.
Etude House Wine Party Play Color Eyes
I’m obsessed with this one. I really love all the color selection from the palette, it contains 10 eye makeup shades both in matte and shimmer.. In this look, I used the shade cork as my base. I also mix the shade Marathon on my crease for transition shade. I put the shade soul mate on the outer v to define the eyes. And for highlight I add in shimmer dress code shade on the inner part of my upper eyelid. Then, I put marathon on the lower lash line and smooth it out using a thin blending brush. And voila, I created this eye make-up look.

ACONCEPT CHEEK ME MISS ME BLUSH
MY EXPERIENCE: The packaging looks like nail polish but no no! You see, “IT IS NOT A NAIL POLISH, ONLY FOR YOUR CHEEK”. 😉 aha, don’t get confused. I’ve been looking for peachy, dusty rose liquid blusher and this one is on the right timing. I just dot it into the cheek area and blend it gently with my fingers. It is not quick drying though, but it blends very well. Sometimes I spread it to the centre of my nose to imitate a Sunkissed blush. Plus, the formula doesn’t feel sticky, so it’s perfect for everyday wear. Luckily, this is one of my Holy Grail blush.
FOR THE LIPS: Aritaum Satin Lip Lacquer
MY EXPERIENCE: This 3 mm Ultra Slim Tip applicator is perfect for lining the lips. I use it by drawing the X sign on the cupid of my lips as it says on the site, then continues to outline the border before spreading it out. Sometimes I use it to over lined my lips or if I want a gradient lip too. And It looks pretty on both. Another thing, it doesn’t feel dry or patchy. It stays long with minimal touch up. One of the best lip lacquer I ever tried out. The only downside is that it’s so tiny for the price. I’m almost done guys! 👏👏
