This was my first time to buy a whole set of nail products. I am not a nail expert, but as much as possible, I try to do nail stuff by myself. When I saw this box, I thought it was amazing because it consisted of 21 nail items that could be perfect for mani and pedi at home.
Yup. All these for only P1,050! If bought separately, it would have cost P5,060.
Watch my unboxing video here:
Here’s my first creation – a Jackson Pollock inspired nail art, which is basically all about splattering and smudging.
For the tutorial, watch here:
My sister Mik did an Ombre + Marbling kemerut and will soon be posted on my YouTube channel!
This box is still available at Althea Korea. So, go ahead, get your hands on this box, and be creative!
Hmmh… What creations would you make with these lovely colors?
I got this from Althea Korea, and if you’ve read my previous post about Althea Korea, you’d know how I found out about this product.
The packaging awakens the kid in us. Designed like a game console, this product will not fail to catch your eye. The “game” shows the skin and the pores being protected by the primer from dirt and other unpleasant stuff. It also locks in moisture so our skin won’t be dehydrated. Also, it gets the oil locked up so our skin won’t oil up easily as we go throughout the day. It’s an amazing representation of what the product can do. On the top flap, you’ll be welcomed by a pair of green eyes.
The tube opening is sealed with a foil tape, making sure it’s clean.
The product is a peachy cream with quite a thick consistency.
It smells so good! Refreshingly good that won’t irritate your nose. It blends smoothly on my skin, despite the slight tackiness.
After letting it set for about 5 minutes, applying my foundation on top makes it much easier.
My makeup stayed but I had shine on my face after a few hours. Despite the shine, I still felt fresh and I could only blot out little oil after a few hours.
In my opinion, there’s nothing any product can do to tame my oily face. So yeah.
As for the price, I got it for only PhP 280, but its regular price is PhP 1,000. I’d say it was a good buy.
Hmmmh, let me start “rating” with this product.
Product Description: (with the help of Google Translate)
Ease of Application:
Performance: but I hope it’s more long-wearing
Price: because I got it for a discounted price. I don’t think I’d buy it in its regular price.
Have you tried this product yet? If not, would you try it?
For almost a week, I was in distress every time I used my Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer. Good thing I did not totally give up and, finally, I was able to figure out how to use it properly.
However, before I was able to put two and two together, it hadn’t been a good week for me. I literally was on the verge of crying. My heart was broken to pieces. I was so frustrated why that celebrated primer wouldn’t work on me! Because of this, I decided to look for a different primer that performed well. That’s when I came across a blog where I learned about Elizavecca Skin Liar Primer. The blogger had good words for it, so I got interested in the product.
Because of this I decided to go to Althea Korea’s webpage, and saw that it only cost PhP 280! I wanted to buy two, afraid that it might go up eventually. 😀 The problem, though, was the PhP 250 shipping fee! I thought, if I were to buy the two primers, plus the shipping fee, then that would mean I had to spend almost PhP 800! Just a few bucks away from their “buy-PhP 1,000-get-free-shipping” promo. That’s when I thought of checking out the gel liner I was dying to have – Tony Moly Back Gel Eyeliner. Surprise! Surprise! It was only sold for, more or less, Php 200! So much cheaper than other online shops! (Not sure though how much it is sold in Tony Moly kiosks/shops.) So I added it to my cart, but I still needed at least Php 149 to complete the PhP 1,000 bill. I chose the Tony Tint Delight from Tony Moly, in the shade Orange Cha Cha.
I waited for Althea Korea’s confirmation. As soon as they confirmed my order, they provided me with the shipping details, along with a tracking number. The handing over of my order was pretty fast. Then after around 10 days, my parcel came via LBC!
I’m so happy with the products, but of course, it’s still too soon to actually say something. That’s why, I’ll post a separate review on each of the products, where I’ll give my opinions with 100% honesty without trying to convince myself that I had spent my money right. 😀
