Valentines is just another month away and I've got the best gift recommendation! Perfect for both females and males.Last month during Christmas, I've gotten myself an Althea Beauty Box after seeing it trending on social media. Althea Beauty Box is a box curated by the Althea beauty lovers in wonder-Seoul-land. Each month, Althea will release 3 beauty boxes for fans to try. They're all full size items & the boxes are limited edition and limited in stock! The fun part is you can get wonderful goodies for a fraction of the price and you get to discover different Seoul brands, even those local Seoul indie brands!
I manage to snatch the Althea Black & Red Box (Sold Out Now!) which is their Holiday Makeup Box 2. This box only costs RM121.00 when the original price was RM533.00! That is a total discount of more than 70% and you can enjoy free shipping all the way from Korea.
|There were 7 products in this box to complete a full look!|
1. Secret Key Miracle Fit Contour (2 pcs)
A cream type contour stick in the shade Medium & Dark. I'm really happy to receive these two, my Etude House cream contour stick has hit pan and these arrived at the right time! They are really easily to apply and blend, it feels really light on the skin too! The colours are perfect to create different shadows for a natural nose and cheek bone contour.
2. Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher in #6 Grapefruit Jelly
I have always wanted this blusher from Etude House, the packaging is to die for! This colour is really natural, a mixture of pink and a little coral, perfect for everyday use. I also enjoy the sponge that comes with it, really convenient for reapplying when I'm out & about.
3. CLIO Pro Layering Eye Palette in Smokey *favourite*
This palette is the best thing ever! I was never a fan of CLIO and I'm clearly one now. I totally ditched my Naked2 palette because this palette is so compact, light and has a good mixture of mattes & glitters. The shadows has good pigments, easy to blend and the price is so affordable! I'm bringing it with me to my Hokkaido travel.
4. Y.E.T ME7 Waterproof Colorful Liner in KingBlack
I have not heard about this brand prior to this beauty box. I was a little skeptical trying out brands that aren't famous but the color payoff blew me off when I first swatch it. This eyeliner is really pigmented and easy to use! The point tip is brush hair type and sharp for precise drawing, the best part is it is totally budge-proof!
5. WITCH'S POUCH Get It Easy Dual Brow Pencilcara in Natural Brown
It is a 2-in-1 multi dual eyebrow where it has eyebrow pencil and the other end has the browcara (mascara for brows) to set the brows. Good for travelling! I tried this brand once from Taiwan and I was so happy Althea now has them, their products are really affordable and awesome!
6. CHICA Y CHICO Matt Lip in Matahari
In this box, it also comes with a bright red liquid lipstick. It is supposed to be matte but I find it to be semi-matte instead, it doesn't dry fully matte. However, it has a mousy texture and glides on easily for application. It stays on the lips comfortably and one swipe is all you need!
I'm definitely going to buy another box next time! These products are really useful and there wasn't anything I'm not satisfied about! I advice you guys who are interested to follow their social media for the next launch date because most of the boxes are currently sold out.
