Althea Korea Flawless Creamy Concealers (Vanilla, Ginger, Honey, Mocha) Review, Swatch, and Price
Who needs an affordable concealer that does a decent job? We all do!!
The past weeks at work have been really stressful and tiring, and indeed, it has been taking a toll on me as I look more haggard. Skin texture is one sign of stress, but dark under eye circles are more definitive! As of late, my under eye circles are on overdrive, being reallyyy dark and puffy compared to the usual. So it was kinda good timing to review these concealers from Althea.
If you were affected by the water crisis this month, this is the product launch you should pay attention to!
Unilever's sustainability-focused brand Love Beauty and Planet has just unveiled their releases for the summer months. Their products are all vegan, ethically sourced, and dispensed in 100% recycled bottles. Most importantly, their products have fast rinse technology, so you can spend less time in the shower. With the severe El Niño affecting more and more regions in the Philippines, the only way to stay pretty and stay relevant at the same time is to stock up on LB&P products.
Violence sounds like a really heavy word, and we kind of think of bruises and beatings immediately. But there is more to abuse than just the physical. There's financial abuse, psychological abuse, and verbal abuse. Unfortunately, we all know of women who have been stuck in miserable marriages because they were financially dependent on their husbands, women who have been beaten and abused by their own partners or family members, and the list goes on. Now, the abuse has gone online as well, and with weak laws and enforcement, many culprits get away with doing bad.
Approximately 25% of married Pinays have experienced abuse from their partners, while 60% of Pinays have experienced some sort of sexual harassment in their lifetimes. It's the enormity of these kinds of statistics that motivated AVON, the company for women, to be at the forefront of ending abuse and empowering women.
AVON Intimates recently launched their Body Illusion Line. The whole range is about addressing 2 major issues women face daily. First, is the issue of uncomfortable underwear––digging straps, itchy materials––the kind that no one can stand wearing the whole day. Second, the issue of underwear that gather the wrong kind of attention––unflattering silhouettes, crazy textures that pop out your shirt–– or worse, the ones that have a ballooning effect!
AVON wanted to make underwear that absolutely made no interference to the wearer's daily life, in both feel and appearance, hence this new range. AVON Body Illusion is all about underwear so lightweight and comfortable you'll forget you have it on, and all about underwear so minimalist that they blend in and "disappear" seamlessly under your clothes.
Hooray for Althea's first ever tint release! For Althea fans out there, I'm sure you're already aware that for the start of 2019, Althea blessed us all with a full blown makeup release including tint, concealer, eye glitter, and eyeshadow. Not to mention the fact that they've already had a face powder since 2017. Althea's Watercolor Cream Tints are sure to delight, as they have 4 shades that are pigmented and wearable for everyday. The special thing is the creamy watercolor like properties of the colors, as usually Korean tints are transparent and jelly like. The creamy color pigmentation means more versatility in usage and a more natural looking result on the lips and cheeks. So let's get down to the review!
It's 2019 already. There are already so many problems in this world that need our attention rather than nitpicking each other and nitpicking each other's hair. We have a water, electricity, rice and infrastructure crisis all at the same time, so indeed, there's no time to waste on useless thoughts and judgments.
There also should no longer be time spent on overthinking how others thought of our hair! I'm sure all of you reading this have had some sort of experience of being told that your hair is too short/long/curly/frizzy/light/dark. Like there is no hairstyle that is truly optimal. But then we really just can't please everyone, and in the first place, we have a say on what we want to do with our hair. Dove understands that pain of many people, hence the new My Hair My Say campaign.
for 10% additional discount aside from all the exciting promotions happening!
Coz that's when L'Oréal, Maybelline and Garnier are gonna have a CRAAAZY Women's Day sale at Shopee!
Indeed, this'll be the time to live your beauty and get your faves. Women's day is all about celebrating diversity and individuality of women, and of course, the perfect way to express that is through makeup. Heavily discounted makeup if I must say!
AVON True Color Lipsticks Nude Shades Swatches and Price
In 2018, we were all obsessed about Korean glass skin and Korean lip tints. In 2019, the trend is expected to continue, alongside the whole drunk blush look. I love these looks, more so that they suit my complexion well. But no matter the trend, nothing beats a good nude lipstick! Nothing beats the feeling of sporting a sophisticated chocolate based shade.
So, rejoice! AVON just released new nude shades in their True Color Perfectly Matte lipstick collection. As it is, their existing roster of True Color lipsticks are already sooo diverse, with reds, pinks, plums and nudes for every Filipina. But they really took it up a notch this 2019 and added more chocolate shades which will surely compliment Filipina skintones. It really is possible to find #EveryShadeOfYou and to express yourself in every mood or situation with all their shades.
Oddly, it was a surprising breath of fresh air. In 2016 and 2017, I was soo obsessed with brown nude shades, and then in 2018 I got obsessed with red Korean velvet tints. After a long time of not trying out brown nudes, it felt so great doing so again!! So lemme show you quickly all the lovely shades:
I'll be showing how I'd play with the makeup in the collection. What I like is that relative to other K-beauty brands, Althea's makeup items are more affordable but with good quality. It'll be easy to follow along this tutorial because I just did a simple look, and also because everything is available at Althea.
