I was one of the lucky few who were given the chance to be the first to shop on Althea Korea – Philippines (read about my shopping experience here). I have to admit that before this, I have only ever tried products from Tony Moly, Etude House, Skinfood and Hanskin, so I was pretty excited that I would get to try more Korean beauty brands.
I wanted to get a complete make up set from Korean beauty brands to try, and while some of the brands were familiar to me (Laneige, Innisfree, Nature Republic, Dr. Jart, Banila Co, etc), there were brands that I have not heard of before (IOPE, Sulwhasoo, Petitfree, Dr. Althea, Guerisson, etc) .
In the end, I was able to purchase a full set of make up, with the exception of a blush. I noticed that there weren’t a lot of blush products on the website – which I guess is not a surprise since Korean Beauty focuses more on the skin and brows than any other feature.
I was able to purchase a full-face of make up for a grand total of *drumroll please* PHP1970.00. Imagine, a face mask, base, concealer, powder, mascara, brow powder and lipstick all for less than PHP2000?! That’s a pretty amazing deal, I would say!
I did a quick test/swatchfest when I got these products and I am excited for everything! From the swatches alone, I already know I am going to love the PeriPera Lip Crayon Tint and the Sebum Out Finish Pact but I will definitely update this space once I’ve had a chance to try these products out at length.
