Hey everyone! Today’s blog post is a long overdue one!
But did you know that Althea Singapore now releases BEAUTY BOXES?😍
This is the first beauty box – Life Proof Makeup Box consisting of 7 full sized products (ranging from 6-12 products, depending on box) and retails for only SGD37!
Aren’t you super tempted already?😝
What’s more? 3 Althea Beauty Boxes will be released each month, so if you have missed out on the first one (P.S ALREADY SOLD OUT), you can still look forward to 2 more other boxes! OH OH, and NO subscription needed!
Althea LIFE-PROOF MAKEUP BOX #1
Here are the products in this beauty box 🙂 I like to receive such boxes because it gives me the opportunity to try NEW products! How is this any different from buying them individually? Firstly, it is already way cheaper! SGD37 for so many full sized products! Do the math, girls ^^ Haha ok don’t think so much about it 🙂 Secondly, having someone to pick the items for you to try can be thrilling! If I were to shop myself, I would have probably picked products that I have tons of in my current makeup collection. Anyway, I have been trying some of these products, so scroll down for reviews 🙂
Etude House Face Conditioning Fixer
I have recently posted on Instagram, @beautywithcal and mentioned about all my current facial mists on my vlog (watch here) and of course, this was included as well 🙂 I love the scent for this facial mist! It has a very nice scent, I don’t know how to describe the scent but it’s like fragrance on my face. The scent doesn’t linger on my face. But if you are sensitive to fragrance or have sensitive skin, you might wanna conduct more research about it! 🙂
RiRE Luxe Gel Tattoo 02 Gray Brown
Moving on, I have yet to try this to be honest! Personally, I am blessed with a nice set of eyebrows and I can actually get away without drawing my brows 🙂 But but, I will try and do a video on this asap! Will update here k! 🙂
Chica Y Chico Matt Cushion No.23
Yay, I always love to try BB Cushions! First, the black packaging is super chic! Don’t cha think so? ^^ This is a matte cushion. However, for me, I felt that it has a dewy finish? It doesn’t feel sticky either. I think this will be great for people with normal skin and not so much for people with oily skin in my opinion! If you are living in a hot climate like Singapore, to be honest, this isn’t the best matte BB cushion 🙂 But if you own this already, this will be great to bring for your holiday to countries like South Korea, HK etc. where the weather is less humid 🙂
It’s My Bong Concealer Cool Born
I have also yet to try this! Will update again!! ^^ If you have tried this, do let me know in the comments section down below or on any of my social media platforms ^^ (links below)
RiRe Lip Powder in Fashion Red
Now now, the famous LIP POWDER… If you have been following Tati on YouTube, (watch her video here), she has done a video on this 🙂 Personally for me, I think this shade is stunning!! A gorgeous red lip shade. However, just like how Tati has mentioned, the applicator is a bit difficult to use. The cap kinda obstructs the application, especially since the doe foot is too short! Lastly, it’s pretty unique! It is really powder but melts into like a lipstick when on your lips. It is due to the heat on your lips.
Here’s how it looks like on me 🙂
Mineral 10o HD Powder
This is another good setting powder for oily skin 🙂 My no.1 favorite setting powder is the Innisfree No Sebum Powder. And I can say this is quite close to it. It feels and looks almost the same. It is like your typical setting powder. If I have to really critique this, I would say the Innisfree No Sebum Powder keeps me matte longer than this Mineral 100 HD Powder. I brought this along with me to my HK trip (watch vlog here). Overall, great powder to try!
It’s My Magic Sponge
Let’s just drop the bomb and say I don’t own a beauty blender, so I can never make a proper judgment when it comes to a foundation sponge like this! HAHA
BUT, as a novice on beauty blenders, I quite enjoy this sponge. I used this with my Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation, which settles badly into my pores, when using both either my fingers or with Sigma F80 Kabuki Brush. But when I first tried it with this sponge, the foundation blended nicely and didn’t settled into my pores at all. I was really amazed by how a sponge can actually make a difference! This sponge also doesn’t soak up much of the foundation, so that’s good. Overall, if you are hesitating to buy a beauty blender due to the price factor and unsure if you really like applying foundation using a sponge, you might wanna try this first! 🙂
Chica Y Chico Princess Mask Pack
This is very nice mask, just like your typical Korean sheet masks! The packaging is very pretty too! I like to receive sheet masks because it gives me an opportunity to try different kinds, especially since there are so many versions in the market!
If you enjoy Korean products or love trying new makeup, DO get these BEAUTY BOXES! Plus NO SUBSCRIPTION needed! What’s there to hold ya back? 🙂
Note that the Life Proof Makeup Box is already sold out! But don’t worry, there will be more ALTHEA BOXes available, so stick around! ^^
