Look at what I got today! My first Sulwhasoo product! Aaaahhh! This is the Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion EX in No. 17!😍 . . . I ordered this about 3 weeks ago from @sweetcoreacos. During that time, I only saw a few reviews on this product but almost all the reviewers liked it! The way they described this cushion had me wanting it! . . Basically they described the product as having good, buildable coverage and hydrating without making the skin look oily. This is supposed to make the skin look naturally dewy, like you have very good skin; it's also an upgrade from their old perfecting cushion. Omg. SOLD. . . . On the box it says Cover radiance cushion that provides perfect makeup with long-lasting light, refined cover and moisturized finish. It has SPF 50+/PA+++, but as always, please use a separate sunscreen product! . . Right off the bat you can see that the packaging is BEAUTIFUL. It comes in an ivory case with a pearl finish and gold on the side. It looks classy, elegant, and luxurious! Well, it has to, I mean it's Sulwhasoo = expensive hahaha. The scent isn't as strong as Hera Black's, but it smells like perfume. Like expensive, for a special romantic dinner floral perfume. Based on my swatch, this shade 17 Ivory (Beige) is yellow (wow what a description, Figi) and left a soft, dewy finish on my skin. It was able to cover the green vein on my hand. Normally I use shade 21 in Korean makeup products/cushions, but this cushion seems to run a bit darker than usual based on reviews so I got 17. . . I am EXTREMELY EXCITED to use this product! I will start using this tomorrow and maybe after a week do a comparison with my current HG, the Hera Black cushion! . . #sulwhasooperfectingcushionex #sulwhasoo #kbeauty #koreanbeauty #abcommunity #abcommunityph #rasianbeauty #abbeatthealgorithm #koreanmakeup #kbeautyaddict #igbeauty #beautybloggerph #makeupaddict
I love K-beauty concealers because they cover my blemishes well and are affordable. My favorite K-beauty concealers are The Saem Cover Perfection Tip Concealer and Peripera Ink Concealer. If I have to choose one then it would have to be The Saem because it’s so cheap (around 5 USD) and offers superb coverage! . The matte concealer from Chica y Chico is good too, but mine smells funky. Not sure if it really smells that way or if I got a dud. . The 3 concealers mentioned above cover my post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) and dark undereye circles decently and last the whole day. For inflamed pimples though, the coverage wears off but I do expect that. They settle on the lines on my undereyes, but I haven't found any concealer that doesn't do that. (Any recommendations? Or should I start trying out high-end concealers...) . One of the downsides to K-beauty concealers is the lack of deeper shades. The one from The Saem comes in a contour shade (just 1 contour shade though). I hope they expand their shade range. . So about the COSRX concealer... It contains centella asiatica, niacinamide, and other beneficial ingredients. I expected so much from it because of all the hype on YouTube. They said it was so pigmented that you'd need very little to cover a section of the face. Well on me it didn't work that way: 💔It barely had any coverage; 💔It didn't last long; 💔It didn't layer well; and 💔It didn't play nicely with my HG Hera Black cushion. . I gave it a few tries and decided to destash it. It breaks my heart that it didn't meet any of my expectations.😫💔 . It really is interesting how products work differently on people. I feel bad the COSRX concealer didn't work for me because I wanted a concealer that had additional skincare benefits. Possible confounding factors are are my skincare routine, the manner I used it, or the other makeup products I used it with. I mean, I don't want to change my whole routine just for 1 product... . What's your go-to concealer? . #cosrx #cosrxclearfitspotconcealer #thesaem #peripera #chicaychico #abcommunity #beautybloggerph #rasianbeauty #abbeatthealgorithm #igbeauty #koreanmakeup #kbeauty #kbeautyaddict
I made sure to visit a @beautycottageclub shop during my trip to Bangkok! I’ve heard so many good things about their lipsticks from my friends which made me want to get some for myself! ⭐️First photo: Elegant Impressionist Semi-Matte Lipstick in (left to right) 07, 09, and 18. ⭐️Video: I forgot which shade that light pink one is, but the one at the bottom is 19 (or 20??). ⭐️Last photo: Shades 09 and 19. ⭐️I got lipsticks for me and my mom. A friend asked me to buy her 2 lipsticks and she’s so happy with it! We think the lippie in shade 18 can be a dupe for Fenty Beauty matte lipstick in Freckle Fiesta. We only “think” it’s a dupe based on swatches we’ve seen online; freckle fiesta is usually sold out so we can't get our hands on it. ⭐️These lipsticks glide smoothly on the lips and are pigmented. They are quite long-lasting on me too; they can last through a meal with minimal touch ups needed afterwards. They don’t look or feel dry on the lips. ⭐️Being semi-matte bullet lipsticks, they do transfer but there will still be decent amount left on the lips. I honestly don’t mind touching up my lipsticks, I mean, I need to use them to finish them up lol. Unfortunately lipsticks don’t last forever, but it will take me forever to go through all of my lipsticks... ⭐️If you’re a lipstick lover like me and you’re going to BKK soon, I suggest checking out a Beauty Cottage shop too! How I wish these were easily accessible here in the PH! #makeup #lipstick #beautycottage #beautycottageclub #beautycottagebyzantine #beautycottage09 #rasianbeauty #asianbeauty #abcommunity #abcommunityph #igbeauty #instabeauty #beautybloggerph #beautyblogger
I love gel nail polish when I'm feeling extra, especially when I'm traveling. I have a compulsion to remove chipped nail polish so regular polish on finger nails while traveling doesn't cut it for me. ⭐️ For regular days/use, I don't recommend gel polish though because based on my experience, it leaves the nails weak and brittle. I think it's the removal process that weakens the nail since it involves soaking the nail in strong acetone. ⭐️ Anyway, I still appreciate gel nail polish 😂 This is #orlygelfx in Rose-Colored Glasses topped with Prisma Gloss Silver! So pretty and dainty ❤️ ⭐️ Had my nails done at #poshnails SM Megamall #gelmanicure #gelpolish #orly #orlyrosecoloredglasses #orlyprismaglosssilver #nails #manicure #igbeauty #instabeauty
The best days of my life are spent with you. Thank you so much, J. I love you.
My mini haul from the Shopee account of @lioele_philippines. 😍 . Products from left to right: Blooming Gloss in 05 Vanilla Pink (free with the lip balm), Bubi Bubi Tint Balm in 03 Indulge Coral, and Color Eye Shadows in the shades 24 Shading Brown and 21 Cream Beige. . Can you believe I got these all for only 280pesos (roughly 5 USD)? Lioele PH currently has a sale ongoing. The Bubi Bubi Tint Balm I got for only 110pesos, while the eyeshadows I got for 85pesos each! . I tried the 2 eyeshadows yesterday and I liked them a lot. Great quality for such a low price! They’re easy to use for a simple but pretty Korean-style eyeshadow look. As you can see on the 3rd photo, the brown eyeshadow is matte while the cream beige eyeshadow has shimmers. I’m thinking the brown eyeshadow can be used as a contour powder too. . I actually now have all 3 shades of the Bubi Bubi Tint Balm. Tinted lip balms are my new obsession haha. I will make a separate post showing swatches and a mini review of the product. . As for the gloss, I tried it on yesterday expecting it to be very pigmented because of my arm swatch, but on my lips it was a light baby pink shade (refer to the last photo in this post). It was comfortable and not very sticky; however, I am not really a fan of lip glosses. For me, long hair + lip gloss don’t work well together. . Looking oily and sweaty in the selfie because I just ate spicy chicken.😂 J noticed my eyes looked different in a good way. Haha I rarely use eyeshadow and even eyeliner nowadays. . . . . . #abcommunity #asianbeauty #rasianbeauty #kbeauty #koreanmakeup #lioele #lioeleph #igbeauty #instabeauty #beautyblogger #beautybloggerph #koreancosmeticsph #koreanmakeupph #kbeautyaddict
