this is my third time buying Althea box, you could say that i'm totally hooked to their exclusive boxes and can't wait for new one to appear on their web.
this time i bought their "makeup magic" box
well actually i'm not that interested at first, but after keep seeing it on their main page ( yes.. i visit their web daily), i was itching to get my hand on it.
MAKEUP MAGIC BOX
ECO SOUL CONTOUR PALETTE
I'm could be consider a newbie for contour makeup. i don't normally use any contour and the reason that i bought this box is that i pledge to learn and use contour after this box arrived.
this contour palette from The Saem has one highlighter color and three shading color.
when applied to my skin the color is quite sheer.
i thing its perfect for newbie like me, as i could keep building up the color without being over board with it.
the color also match with majority of Asian skin colors
here is the instruction of how to use it from althea.
lets learn together all of the newbie out there!
as for the lighter shading i think i could use it to contour my nose
is it to light?
teach me sensei!!
COLOR MASTER COVER KIT
actually this cover kit is perfect for traveling because it contains with base, shading and highlight colors all in one palette.
it has a.. how do i say it.. gel like texture? waxy texture?
well it has a lipstick palette texture, that's for sure.
lets check each individual color do to your face
green base- cover redness
purple base- over yellowish skin/ dullness
ivory base-cover imperfection/dark circle/ dullness
beige base- cover imperfection/dark circle/ dullness
pink base- highlighter
it also suitable for all Asian skin color because they provide twp concealer colors; ivory and beige.
SUGARBALL VELVET BLUSHER
(04 peach crush)
they actually has a cushion version for this blusher.
if you prefer to have bolder color blusher, you should aim for their cushion one.
as for the velvet blusher, which is a compact powder one, it has more subtle color that you could build up.
it comes with a tiny blush for easy application.
FIX PEARL PIGMENT PACT
(01 ssum light)
i was instantly fell in love with this eye shadow.
the color so pigmented and the glitter is not flying everywhere when apply not did it clumping together in one part.
definitely a perfect eyeshadow to achieve the diva look.
a must have item!!
MY BEAUTY TOOLS EYELASH
I've been a fan of etude fake lashes for a long time.
their lashes is really easy to use and long lasting.
i actually use one lashes for three to four wear before trowing it out.
other part that i like is their glue.
the glue is not easily clump and really easy to apply, has a really strong adhesive even just use a little bit.
this longlash 01 lashes looks natural and could be use for daily makeup.
BABY FACE CREAMY LIP LINER
(02 coral peach)
this is another item that i never use in my life.
i personally never intended to buy lip liner because lip tint applicator or lipstick is enough for me.
at first i thought that the color is quite dark, but when swipe on my hand and lips it turns out OK.
the texture is quite waxy but creamy at the same time.
it didn't highlight the crack and dryness on my lips.
LIP AND CHEEK DESIGNER PENCIL
color wise, i like it. i could use it daily and the color also perfect to create a deep gradation lips.
the texture compare to the above lip liner has more moisture and really easy to use.
the problem i have with pencil type products is that it quite a hassle to sharpen it each quarter time i want to use.
that was another long post for althea box unboxing!
i think all the item i received from this box will come in use sooner or later. especially the contour and base palette.
i guess thats it for now, thank you for reading this long and boring post.
i do hope the picture help you more better that just reading a post filled with only sentences.
