5 Jul

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.

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

Covering my dark spots from chickenpox

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. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚

Review: Aritaum Full Cover BB Cream + Korean Cosmetics-Philippines Giveaway

14 May

Good afternoon readers! It’s time for a bb cream review. This is my second bb cream for this year. It’s in 01 light beige. Aritaum became really popular last year because of their Full Cover range. Which includes this item and the liquid concealer. πŸ™‚

This was sent to me by Korean Cosmetics-Philippines. Oh btw, they have an on going local giveaway (click here). They’ll be picking two winners and will receive Aritaum Full Cover BBΒ cream in natural beige and Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream. Be sure to like theirΒ page on Facebook and follow the giveaway mechanics. πŸ™‚ ❀️

Now let’s proceed to reviewing this item, shall we? πŸ™‚

Before and after photos (BB cream alone, no setting powder or foundation)
First: This bb cream covered my deep hyperpigmentation when dabbed thrice.
Second: It covered my chickenpox scar when dabbed twice or thrice
Third: It covered my dark circle when applied once

Pros:

  • 50 ml is a big size that could last for months
  • The bb cream’s consistency is not thick and not too liquidy
  • SPF 50 + PA++ will protect you from the sun
  • Little goes a long way
  • Satin finish just like a normal skin
  • Still gives you that glow but not to the point you’re too oily
  • Lasts for a whole day for me
  • Did not cause breakouts
  • Provides great coverage although it’s consistency is not thick at all
  • Works well on red spots

Cons:

  • Available in 2 shades only (light and natural beige)

Note this bb cream is notΒ completely removed by water so be sure to thoroughly cleanse your face after a long day. Use cleansing tissues or better if cleansing oil before washing your face with foam cleanser then toner.

Overall, I like this bb cream because of its coverage. I think it works as a concealer too if you dont have much flaws. You can put translucent powder to set it. If you want more coverage like me, put powder foundation on top of it. πŸ™‚ ❀️
