Etude House Double Lasting Foundation in Sand

Hello guys! I have here another new discovery about a good foundation. It's been raved online and I happened to see this on Althea website on a make up bundle. Boom. You can guess what happened next, right? Anyhow, let's continue this then.

What is it about?
It's foundation that is long lasting. It also provides perfect cover and applying a thin layer of this provides flawless and clear skin.

After blending it, my skin feels softer and brighter.

It gives this healthy glow on the skin.

How the product looks on me. ( Excuse my selfie)

I love this foundation.

SHADE: It is sand that is similar to # 22 to # 23 that creates a natural skin with a neutral base.

PACKAGING: It has this frosted glass bottle. It also comes with a lid and pump where the product comes out.

TEXTURE: It feels very light and smooth on the skin. After a few seconds, it just melts and sinks into the skin and doesn't cake or anything.

COVERAGE: It is pretty much medium to high coverage. Since, it is light enough, you can build it up if you desire to. After leaving this on the skin, it only begins to shine after about 4 hours or so. Setting this with a powder does help a lot.

  • It lasts really well on the skin.
  • It's medium to high coverage.
  • It's very easy to apply.
  • It makes the skin naturally flawless and smooth.
  • It does quite help with the oil control and shine on the face.

  • I have no complaints about it actually.

My Final Thoughts
Once again, I am head over heels in love with this foundation right here. It's because it really lasts all day long even if it's super hot and humid outside. A little bit of touch ups on the T-zone and that's basically it. Now I completely understand the hype about this foundation. 

Anyhow, hope you find it helpful. What's your favorite foundation? Let me know and let's exchange ideas friends. Till next time and always be happy.

My Product Empties # 18

Welcome back to my blog! It's that time of the month to talk about my empties one by one again. Let's get right into it. Hope you find it helpful.

My Product Empties # 18 : My Lucky Seven
1. Milky Dress Wrinkle and Whitening Eye Cream

It's an eye cream that targets 2 main points. It's responsible for whitening the eye area and wrinkle care as well.
*I've reviewed this already. You can view it HERE

VERDICT: It's good for young people especially in their 20's. It doesn't do much for me. It only hydrates the eye area but the effect is also temporary. :( I won't repurchase this anymore.

2. Elizavecca Skin Liar Primer

This claims to do 3 good things on the skin. First, it covers the pores. Second, it does moisturize the skin at the time. Lastly, it holds the makeup in place for a longer period of time. 
* I've reviewed this before. You can view it HERE

VERDICT: It's a pretty decent primer considering its price point. If you have enlarged pores, then this won't work much. Also, it doesn't do much with oil control. I recommend this for young skin. 

3. Missha The Style Under Eye Brightener in Light Beige

This acts like a liquid concealer that perfectly covers blemishes, dark circles and freckles. In my opinion, it works best for my when I used this as a highlighter. I put this on the bridge of my nose, under the eyes, and on the arch of my brows. 
* You can view my thoughts about this concealer HERE

VERDICT: It's a winner as a highlighter but failed as a concealer. 

4. Dove Ultimate White Anti-Perspirant Deodorant

This helps speed up skin restoration to lighten dark underam skin cells. It's always my trusted bestfriend to keep bad odor at bae.

VERDICT: I'll surely repurchase this again.

5. Medicated Hand Cream by Kiss Me

I'm always blown away every time I use this hand cream right here. I like how rich it feels on the hands and that moisturizing effect is just amazing. I also put this on my feet, knees and any body parts that need moisture.
*You can check my review about this hand cream HERE

VERDICT: If ever you're in Japan, buy this one. I recommend this for dry skin. It works wonders with its price point. 

6. Etude House Eyebrow Pencil # 1

It's an eyebrow pencil that has a brush in the other end. About the pencil, I love how creamy and easy it is to use. It glides smoothly. The color pay off is also good too. 

VERDICT: This is a good eyebrow pencil to use for beginners. Since it's relatively cheap, I recommend everyone to try this out and surely you won't regret it.

7. Cream Body Wash Goat Milk Scented by Watsons

This gently and effectively cleanses and moisturizes your skin. It also combines gentle cleansing agents with the rich fragrance of goat milk, leaving your skin soft and silky smooth.

VERDICT: A winner. With its price point, you can never go wrong. It also lasts for a long time. I highly recommend this.

That's about it for now. Thanks for dropping by my blog guys. What are your empties? Let's share products then. Take care and always choose happiness.

REVIEW : Winage Moisture Set by Coreana Cosmetics

Hi friends. Let me introduce a special anti-aging skin care set that promotes elastic skin with caviar and truffle winage complex. This is by a Korean brand named Coreana. Let's continue some more.

What's it about?
The set comes in this light orange box. It has 3 products inside. First product is a Moisture Toner. The size is 150 ml. The second product is a Moisture Emulsion. The size is also 150 ml. The third product is Moisture cream with Caviar and Truffle and comes in 30 ml size.

Everything that is written on the box itself and the bottles is all written in Korean. Well, I'll just make use of these 2 main ingredients here that are caviar and truffle.

This is how the toner looks like on the skin. It's almost like a water-like consistency.

This is the emulsion. A kind of thick and concentrated white liquid but it's easily absorbed on the skin once patted.
* Here's the link of the cream. I did review this before already.

What   Caviar  does to our Skin?

Caviar has Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. These 2 nutrients promote luminous and healthy skin. In addition, it is proven to heal and prevent cellular inflammation and work alongside with our skin's natural processes, stimulate collagen production and minimize the the appearance of wrinkles.

What Truffle  does to our Skin?
Truffles are known for their musky and sensuous scent and are considered rare and luxurious ingredients. They are also great for our skin too. It's because they contain fatty acids and when they're incorporated in beauty products, they help to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Also, they provide a rich hydration to the skin and hair as well.

My Final Thoughts
Guys, you definitely have to try this set out as soon as possible. I am super blown away by this powerful duo right here. ^ ^ They really do make a big difference on my skin especially about texture and hydration.

I'll elaborate the ways why I super like this skincare set.
  • It's very lightweight.
  • It does the job effectively.
  • It has anti-aging benefits.  Just the combination of caviar and truffle already is a big winner for me.
  • It's perfect to layer under our makeup / foundation. It doesn't look heavy or something.
Shoutout to my Korean friend for gifting this set. Gamsahamnida Chinggu. Anyhow, hope you find this helpful. Let's continue to search the beauty of skincare together and be the best that we can be.

Birthday Vlog Part 2 + Meeting his Pet, Scooby + Top 5 Reasons To Eat At Home

Here's the part 2 of his birthday vlog. Aside from spending his birthday the Viking's style, we decided to spend it at home with family as well. That way, we could spend more time with them and do the cooking by ourselves. Nothing beats cooking together and eating a heart meal with your significant others.

His Birthday Vlog Part 2

5 Reasons Why Celebrating Birthdays At Home Is Better
1. Save Money
True that. By celebrating your birthdays at home means you can maximize your budget to prepare the foods and drinks that you want. An added bonus also is you can ask some friends and family to bring what foods they can share for everybody to enjoy. A win-win solution definitely.

2. Family Time
Yes to this. Family time should be regarded as a priority these days. Spending your special events at home is always a good time to savor the moment and just have fun. That way, your relationship gets to be deeper and better as  time goes by.

3. Know what you are eating
I like this part right here. By preparing the foods and drinks at home means that you have this guarantee about the foods' quality and nutrition. We know how our foods are prepared and that is good enough to enjoy the party without the guilt-feeling afterwards.

4. Your portion control will be better.
Strangely but it works that way. The size of the foods on the table sometimes may look huge enough that we just eat little and not really cheat and overeat. In addition, you know you can eat longer at home so there's no pressure at all to eat everything at once.

5. Less likely to gain weight.
True. Why? The answer is very easy. The kinds of foods and drinks you can prepare and personalize if you prefer actually. That way, you can be sure that only the good kinds of nutrients and vitamins are consumed by the whole family members. 

There you have it my friends. Thank you for dropping by. Hope you all have a good day. Take care.

Birthday Vlog: His Birthday at Viking's SM City Cebu

Welcome back everyone. Today, I'll share with you our personal experience how we celebrate our birthday. :) This time, we chose the Viking's way and we figured that it would be reasonable because of their birthday promo. It's like if you dine on your birth date, then yours will be free as long as you bring along one company with you. Quite a good deal right? Let me share some snippets and our vlog at the same time too.

Some snapshots of that day

Thank you Viking's for making my hubby's birthday extra special and sweet. We surely did have a good time. Our tummies were happy and satisfied. Till the next food journey.

Celebrating Althea's 2nd Birthday and My Haul

Hello guys. I am back here to showcase my haul from Althea Korea. It's not really much compared to the other ones I've done before. I just wanted to spend my points and bought the items that really were on sale and captured my attention as well. Let's dig in.

The Althea Birthday Box ^ ^

A Teapot Party with my very own Althea goodies

Why it's the best time of the year to shop?
- Sale is everywhere. I kid you not.
-Birthday giveaway everyday
-Contests and promos
-All sorts of exciting things

Here's my Althea Haul
1. Nella Multi Toning Essence Honey1 Snail

It's a toner + lotion + essence all in one product. It claims to deeply nourish the skin because it has honey, royal jelly and propolis. It's also responsible for restoring skin's elasticity and brightening the skin.

It really improves my skin texture making it smoother and softer. Plus, it saves my money and time since it's a 3-in-1 product already.

2. Missha Under Eye Brightener - GIVEAWAY, Got this as a FREEBIE

It's a watery liquid concealer that covers blemishes and dark circles. I've reviewed this before and kindly click on the link more details about this product.

3. Etude House Double Lasting Foundation in Sand

It's a long lasting foundation that provides a perfect coverage. It feels very light and smooth on the skin when used.

I really love this foundation. It covers skin blemishes pretty decently. It also makes my skin less oily throughout the day and most especially it gives that natural flawless look.

4. It's Skin Waterfull Highlighter Polish in 02

It has a natural shine effect that gives a natural glowing skin. Its formula that is a liquid consitency like that of a nail polish provides a radiant and dewy complexion. 

It's easy to use and blend on the skin. That silky and dewy finish it gives the skin is very flattering. But it isn't long lasting especially on hot and humid days.

5. Secret Key Miracle Fit Essence Concealer

It's a concealer with a creamy texture. It claims to cover skin imperfections with just one touch. It also easy to layer for that high coverage effect but still gives a natural finish.
( I didn't open this product yet since I have the Missha one. No first impressions for this one guys. Sorry. Opps.)

That's it for me today. I'd like to grab this chance to thank Althea for always giving us amazing and genuine products all the time. Thank you for my points also. Happy 2nd Birthday once again and more years to come. As always, let's all stay beautiful inside and out.
