《MAKEUP》✦ALTHEA.KR✦

HARI NG PADALAHARI NG PADALA

Alex tweeted about getting the Elizavecca primer at a giant discount and the packaging was really cute so I asked her where she got it! She pointed me at Althea.kr and I… dove into hell.

She wasn’t joking, guys. All in all our order (my mom and sister got stuff too because I possess some semblance of ~chill okay) should have cost ~6000PHP, but we only paid around ~2600PHP all in all! Since we still paid over 1500PHP we got free shipping, and it was delivered straight to our doorstep in under a week.  If only other online stores were this efficient. :’)

Moreover since it was our first order, we got 150PHP off, and 150 rebate! It’s lit.

 

box
Inside the LBC packet was a pink Althea plastic packet, and inside that was the light pink box! I love how everything’s so pink, haha.

box contents

Even the inside was soooo cute. Their policies on the box’s cover were clean and clear and easy to read!

Everything we ordered was encased in bubble wrap to ensure that they arrived at our home safely! There’s even an extra layer of tissue to guarantee safety. And look cute lolol

stuff

Naturally, as the hell called discounts dictates, we got a bunch of stuff. This is our entire order, but my stuff’s comprised of the  lol but these include my mom’s and my sister’s stuff. I got the W-Lab 3D Face Sticks (the highlighter + shading set), the Rilakkuma x A’PIEU For Your Shadow in #3 Call My Name, Witch’s Pouch Selfie Like Shot Dual Lipstick in Selfie Coral&Red.

W-LAB 3D FACE SHADING + HIGHLIGHTING STICKS

I bought these because if you’ve ever seen my face, you know that I look like a meatbun. LOL I have no shape to my face whatsoever other than round. The shading sticks come with super cute and super clean packaging! The drawings on the boxes help identify which stick is for which. The entire label is in Korean though, so I have no idea what these are made of. RIP

sticks

The sticks only comes in one shade each so if your skin tone is similar to the shading stick then it’s best that you look elsewhere. Otherwise these things are smooooooth like butter and blend extremely well. … Actually, I think they might be a bit too creamy, because the sticks have each fallen out of their cases at least once. I’ve already dented the shading stick because it slipped out of the case and into the sink. Philippine heat isn’t very kind to these things. ): In any case, they’re nice and subtle, and really easy to use. I prefer the highlighter to the shading stick though, because I like the ~glow it gives off and prevents my face from looking too matte.

jk is that highlighter or is it sweat WE JUST DONT KNOW FAM!!

RILAKKUMA x A’PIEU FOR YOUR SHADOW in #3 CALL MY NAME

I’m such a sucker for collab stuff. Last year I got a Little Twin Stars face primer and powder foundation set from Candy Kawaii Lover but I haven’t… used it yet because it’s so cute. The powder puff has Kiki’s face on it. How do you expect me to use it when it’s so cute. ):

I actually almost got stuff from the Holika Holika x Gudetama collaboration a while back because the packaging was so cute. (I still want a Gudetama face mask.) I also really want the Bandai Milky lip cream, but it’s been phased out since it was a limited-time collaboration item. … @/self stop this.

palette

You see the thing with eyeshadow is that I only own one kind, Etude House’s Fantastic Color Eyes in Cherry Blossom. On the rare occasion I wear makeup I really veer towards reddish and pinkish colors, so I got this palette in warm, brownish nude-ish shades. The upper left shade is pretty much just sparkles/glitter, the upper right is shimmery and sheer (I’d use it as an eyeshadow base), bottom right is a shimmery coppery shade, and the bottom left is a matte, subtle pink.

We’ve established that I know near nothing about eyeshadow, yes. This stuff didn’t become one with my crease though, and all of the shades are lovely. My personal faves are the top right and bottom left shades. 😀

WITCH’S POUCH SELFIE LIKE SHOT DUAL LIPSTICK in #3 CORAL&RED

Sister: Ate, please stop buying so many lipsticks.
Me: Okay.
Also me: *AGGRESSIVELY PRESSES ADD TO CART*

In the past half year my lipstick collection has increased exponentially. I’ve been eyeing LANEIGE’s Two Tone Lip Bar for a while now, but I’m a sad, broke college student, so luckily Witch’s Pouch has a cheaper alternative! It seemed really promising so I went ahead and ordered it, plus the brand is my ~Aesthetic lmao. I also wanted to try the Red&Gloss variant but decided to go with Coral&Red for now!

witch box
The shade is on the top of the box and at the back are different ways to use the lipstick! Normally these things are used for gradient lip but it’s cute how they have alternative styles. They’re easy to understand because of the images, which is great because how do Korean language LOL

 

lip bar

It lasted 3 hours before I ate LOL but I strongly believe that it could last longer if you Try Hard And Believe In Yourself. At first found it a little jarring because the coral shade seemed so light on my mouth, but it looks lovely when blended. It might be a little drying for some people so it’s better with gloss or a nice lip balm!

ANYWAY here are some swatches!

My face is super gross but I tried them all at once andddddd

mochi

Someone else could utilize these to their full potential but that person isn’t me! HAHA but ultimately these are really lovely and I can foresee them holding a permanent place in my usual makeup bag.

In other news, my Hobonichi order is due to be shipped within the next few days and I’m pretty pumped! In the meantime though, I’ll have to do a ton of studying <o>___<o> See you when the journal gets here! 😀
