By Ramona Jessica Nadong - March 07, 2019


I have been a huge fan of make up, everyone knows that and whenever there's a new makeup in my stash, I immediately try my best to post is as soon as possible and now I'm back with another blog showing the most AMAZING make up made by love and pride of Althea Korea- my go-to Korean ecommerce shop that provides high quality and authentic K-beauty that would suit my cravings in emphasizing my natural beauty.

Few months back, I received a lovely box from Althea Korea that features 5 different products made especially by them and today,  I will be showing you 4 of them right now because for the 5th product, I'm still thinking how to use it. LOLs

PACKAGING 



The packaging for me was very chic and very sophisticated if you would notice, it's very slim and compact so it would be easier to keep in your make up bag for retouch. I am a huge fan of their pallete because it's black and it's magnetized. Furthermore, it doesn't have any brush included but the best part is, they have a big mirror that you can see everything on your face for easier make up application.

EXPERIENCE

I am very happy with this palette, the color pay off was very nice, it was so pigmented however, the colors in the palette are out of my comfort zone so I'm still trying to practice to come up with a look that would be suitable for me. Also, the colors are perfect for any skin tone. I'm just hoping that there were more mattes included in the pallete for a more day look but the colors are very much blendable and easy to work with. I am happy with the metallics because it doesn't fall out as much as other palettes do which is perfect most especially when you have less time to do your make up. For the price, I am immensely okay with it because it's not too expensive and it's not too cheap for the packaging and pigments I must say it's definitely WORTH IT ♥
