This is the 2nd part of this week’s theme. Another spot treatment for acne but this time it’s from Skinmiso. I was thinking if I should get a serum or cream for the whole face.

Review + Swatches: A’PIEU Air Fit Cushion in #21

Tonight’s review is about my first ever bb cushion. I have never seen a cushion in real life. I was curious so I bought one for myself. I got the lightest shade, #21. I could just go to korean brands’ boutiques here to swatch one but I wont buy any. I think they are pricier here. That would be awkward if I’ll just get out of the store. 😂

image

Cushions are usually expensive. My budget for makeup is not more than 500 pesos per product. I want my readers to save 💰 too. I found out Apieu has an affordable cushion. I clicked the checkout button right away. 😅😂 You can get this for less than 500 or even 400 pesos if it’s on sale when you preorder it from sellers or buy directly from korean sites.

image

What is it?
Air-Light Powder’ gives light and clear application giving natural make up finish. Used mineral water instead of water for clean and moisture skin. ‘Rolling System’ with skin curves giving clean and even application. ‘Airy Cover Powder’ gives silky comfortable skin coverage. Aloe / tea tree extract gives comfort on sensitive skin. Patent ingredient avocado peptide gives healthy elastic skin.

Now I dont know what the whole description means but Im pretty sure it’s a bb cushion. 😂😅

Review: Bifesta MOIST Cleansing Lotion

Hello readers! Im taking a break from reviewing korean brands this weekend. Tonight’s review is about my current makeup remover. I’m a fan of cleansing tissues until I’ve read that it can actually damage the skin’s surface. Plus there are a lot of preservatives on most tissues.

image

I was looking for a makeup remover. Bifesta’s product fits my budget. We all know I have acne prone skin. You might be wondering why I bought the moist type instead of the sebum type. Moist type is for dry and sensitive skin. I searched for reviews about sebum type. Some bloggers experienced sting. I’m prioritizing my skin’s sensitivity.

What is it:
Are you hesitant to use a makeup remover because your skin is dry? Don’t worry because Bifesta Cleansing Lotion- Moist is the right product for you! It contains ceramide-like ingredients to retain the moisture of the skin.

Ingredients:

Review: Essence Superfine Eyeliner Pen

Good evening readers. Tonight’s quick review is about my first product from Essence and my second eyeliner pen. I bought this at a department store. I was looking for an affordable eyeliner pen and I thought this one fits that category.

image

Description:
The all-rounder amongst eyeliners! the super fine eyeliner pen is riding on the trend-waves straight out of the usa and asia! this extremely long-lasting precision eyeliner has a particularly slim felt-tip applicator ideal for creating fine, subtle eyeliner looks as well as extravagant and dramatic styles.

Ingredients
Aqua (water), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Polyurethane-35, Styrene/acrylates Copolymer, Polyglyceryl-2 Caprate, Methylpropanediol, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Tri-c12-13 Alkyl Citrate, Caprylyl Glycol, Panthenol, Tocopherol, Helianthus Annuus (sunflower) Seed Oil, Stearic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Phenylpropanol, Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate, Citric Acid, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Ci 77266 (black 2).

image

Pros:
– Very affordable. I got this for Php 209 only.
– Available locally. You can get this at department stores.
– Beginners can practice applying eyeliner using this since it’s affordable
– No parabens

Cons:
– Dry and not pigmented. Im not sure if I got a bad one. The stocks for this eyeliner are unsealed. I tested this stock before I bought it and it was pigmented. I dont know what happened.
– Its tip didnt help me to have precise application. My lids didnt like its texture.

I dont want this to go to waste even if it’s just worth 209 pesos. I dip this in my liquid liner’s container and it works fine. It feels like Im back in the old times. Hahaha but in a girly way. ;)

Im disappointed with this product. Im hoping I just got a bad stock. You can still give this a try and see for yourself.  My next targets are the liners from Maybelline, Nichido and Shawill. They were recommended by my fb friends. :)

Review + Before & After Photos: Aritaum Full Cover Liquid Concealer in 02 Natural Beige

image

Good evening readers. It’s time for a makeup review. Now, you might be wondering why I got it in a small container. This is a repackaged version that I got from Korean Cosmetics-Philippines. Sellers are repackaging products so people could try them and see if it will work out before buying the full size.

image

Anyway let’s proceed. I got the Natural Beige 02. It’s darker than my skin right after applying it but it does blend afterwards especially with my powder foundation.

What is it:
Soft texture: Easy to apply. Perfect covering. Containing Rosehip fruit extracts: Moisturizing

Swatches
Covering my dark circles

image

Covering my dark spots from chickenpox

image

Pros:
– Full size (25 ml) will last for months
– Little goes a long way
– Thick consistency, close to pot/cream concealers
– Satin finish
– Long lasting
– Can be used as highlighter
– Great for covering redness
– Provides great coverage for dark circles
– Buildable coverage for dark spots & imperfections

Cons:
– Comes in 2 shades only
– Can settle in creases
– Can accentuate dry areas

The cons depend on your skin condition and how you apply it. I used this concealer in the morning and my eye area still looks lively. It has satin finish that can still give you subtle glow. :)

Overall, I like this concealer. It does its job pretty well and met my expectations. It provides the coverage that I want. I recommend this to those who are looking for a reasonably priced concealer. Just make sure your skin is well moisturized. :)
