Review: LUVIEW Whitening Capsule BB cream & Crystal Mineral Pact

Hello everyone, how've you been? happy and fine I hope.
So I'm going to post my overdue review, as promised, Luview whitening capsule BB cream and Luview crystal mineral pact. I'd rather just put them all up at once, cuz this babies are inseparable.
If you've been following my blog for awhile, you might know that I was chosen as a supporter for Korea Cosmetic (I'm happily ecstatic!). I'm not getting paid, they sent me the products, along with a lot of freebies to be reviewed.
So deeply thanks to Korea Cosmetic ft. Luview for providing the product

ok, let's move on!

Formula  Cream
Whitening: KFDA certified, TALC free

safety lock concept!
My comment:
Packaging: PhotobucketI'd like to start with the packaging first, typical of hygienic pump type casing which is very very convenient, I like the safety lock concept, just twist and pump! But, however, I accidentally, or should I say that I'm just being a lil bit unlucky cuz there's no 'straw' to suck up the product inside the casing. Meeeh, I tried to pump it again and again and nothing get out. But oh well, not a big deal, I opened the cap and take the product with my fingerv( ̄Д ̄)v

Color/texture:Photobucket I was froggin' shocked when I laid my eyes on the cream, it's WHITE! this is definitely a new to my eye. However, once the product settles on my skin, it blends in naturally with my natural skin tone. Allow it to oxidised and this brought about a VERY natural, silky and radiant cast to my face. Obviously love the 'MAGIC' BB cream concept! as for the texture itself, it's a bit watery in consistency, the less thick, the less cakey! yay for that! It has a fine pearly-shimmer too.
omg, I'm just love love LOOOVE the product mainly because the color and texture! I've tried many korean BB cream before but nothing can be good enough to be compared with this! (I'm being HONEST here!)♡♡♡

Coverage:Photobucket Naah, as for the coverage, don't expect much. It gives you a sheer coverage, I assume this is due to its watery consistency.

Oil control:Photobucket There's still a slight shine on my face and I need to reblot it every 3-4 hours. Contains Aloe extract and the famous hyaluronic acid for moisturizing properties.

Scent: PhotobucketOmaww so lovely! I can't stop smelling its scent on my hands after each application. It has a soft musky fragrance. You guys already knew that I hate fragrance in BBC, but this one is an exception! really raeally love the scent!

LOVE POINTS: Contain lots of natural ingredients, Watery consistency, non-cakey, a little goes a long way, MAGIC BB cream concept! Gives a silky cast on my face, easy to blend, natural tone, non-comedogenic, TALK FREE, mild musky scent, whitening properties~
(I'm sure that there's a LOT of unjottable things that I like about the product! (*^▽^*)

Not so loves: a bit shimmery finish. and...'strawless'(unlucky me), and it comes in a small size (30ml)

Okay, let's move on to the next review! gogogo...


Product description:

Netto: 13gr
Benefit   UV protection, Mineral enriched
Skin types  Normal
Formula  Pressed powder. SPF 25 PA++
Light beige Natural beige
Mineral ingredients: Crystal, Amethyst, Coral, Pearl, etc.

Inspired by crystal minerals, It keeps skin flawless and radiant hour after hour
1. Jewelry formula
Jewelry formula measurably reduce redness and keeps skin radiant
2. Ultra-fine satin powder glides on silky smooth, stays on comfortably, without feeling dry
3. Optimizes skin's varying tones to create a more even appearance.
Buildable coverage lasts for hours, yet feels like nothing at all. Controls shine. In a ready-to-go, ready-to-perfect compact.

My comment:
I got mine in shade 1, the lighter one. I use it to set the BB cream. Prefferably on nose and  forehead area. I'm not fond of compact powder since I find that they could cause breakouts, But however, I still need it to set my BB cream(> o <) Though, sometimes I'm just being lazy to set the BB cream. fwehehe...('◇')ゞ
and just like many other pacts, it blends naturally on skin and dissapear. So swatch up there↑↑↑ I applied it heavily. So shall we go with the verdict?

Packaging:Photobucket as you've already knew, I LOVE the classy and lavish packaging already! It has a separate space for the puff, hygienic.

Texture/color: Photobucket  As we all know, pressed powder tends to be more cakey. So I just puff it a little here and there on my face just as enough to cover the excess shine on my face.and Just like the MAGIC concept on BB cream, give it some time and let it oxidize and it will surely blend in with natural skin tone.

Coverage:Photobucket  coverage is good. works well with whitening capsule BB cream. If you swipe it over the concealer, it will gives a perfect coverage :)

Oil Control:Photobucket decent, the fine particles on it (pearls) gives off some sort of glow and dewy cast to my face. I LOVE it. My face was radiantly glowing with this. This mineral pact sets my BB cream for a good 4 hours untill I need to blot my face with oil film.

Scent:Photobucket Mildly scented, I can barely smell anything though. No feint cosmetic scent.

LOVE POINTS: Mineral pact, SPF 25 PA++, decent oil control, no feint scent, lavish packaging, good coverage.

NOT SO LOVE: tends to be more cakey.

Well. That would be all for the massive review >.<~ Here 's my FOTD with the product on:

Skin: Luview Whitening Capsule BB cream
Luview Crystal Mineral Pact

Eye: Skinfood salmon dark circle concealer
Skinfood brown almond eyeliner

Lips: Etude House Aloha Two Two Kiss in shade #3

Review: LUVIEW Glam Full Long Lash Mascara

Hullo (*’-^)-☆ dollies.
I get this mascara along with Luview BB cream and pact from Korea Cosmetic quite awhile agoFirst, I'd like to do a short introduction of this newly established (2010) cosmetic brand, LUVIEW.

To find the clue for this question, LUVIEW has made an interviews
with the famous dermatologists, doctors of oriental medicine and makeup
arties in Asia for several years. the answer LUVIEW found through the lots of questions is healthy & clean skin care and effective expression of healthy skin

LUVIEW, the oriental color makeup, is the healthy and natural skin care
cosmetics created by highly optimized oriental formula of natural ingredients
from all of very clean area in Asia and the most advanced dermatology. as the most effective prevention way from photo-aging in any types of skin, as the most natural expression way of the beautiful skin,as the most safe and high quality brand at reasonable price, LUVIEW is already being loved by many of Asian celebrities

Price: USD $ 14.40, Neto: 14gr
Order here: Luview Korea

Onto the product, the packaging is so classy, glam, elegant, or should I say, lady like? hehe... I LIKE the packaging♥  even the cardboard-box packing is also lavishly designed.

About the product:
as for the product itself, this is a fiber mascara with natural polymers. Err...a fiber mascara, remember Relian Mascara, or fiberwig? Nah, this one resembles it. But minus the base coat. Actually, when I first tried this out, I didn't know that this mascara is a fibery one, but on application, I noticed that it has a fiber characteristic which incredibly lenghten my eyelashes. So I browsed a little and found out that..omg! this one is really a FIBER mascara (two in one) that I've been craving for! I'm pretty sure that I can jot down more things that I love about it.

The brush is particularly large in size with a fine bristles. It does a great job at pulling the eyelashes up, but... with this size, it makes me harder to reach the lashes on the corner of my eye.

and, with a lot of pros and cons, this is a non-waterproof mascara which relieve me in some ways. Honestly, I'm being contra with waterproof mascara (because they're super difficult to be removed) and sometimes, I'm just too lazy to buy a mascara remover. So YAY~ for non-waterproof mascara!\(o ̄∇ ̄o)/ふあ
but heey, no worries, if you're a scared folk, and afraid of non-waterproof mascara, it's time to change your mind. This mascara doesn't smudge, flake, or smear! REALLY... I LOVE IT, I've been wearing it for 9 hours already. and no complaints!

Overall rating:Photobucket

Plus points:  smudgeproof, flakeproof, no smear, non-waterproof, long-lasting, lengthen by 300%!, lavish design, fiber formula, no-clump.
Not so loves: Fat brush applicator, but it's not really a big deal though :) focused to lengthen the eyelashes, so don't expect too much in terms of volumizing.

unfortunately, today, eek...I forgot to take my natural and barely-there eyelashes without the mascara on. So sorry \(> o <)/, I'm going to show you the pic from Luview.com, the before-after pics are just too good to be real♥

Obviously in love with the mascara   I have to say that this is nearly perfect IMO~
You're going to love this product if you've been looking for all in one fiber mascara, and those who feel too lazy to put the fiber base coat.

Okay, that's all for the review. If you want to order Luview Glam full long lash mascara, please contact Korea Cosmetic or visit Luview site for more info. I'll be back very soon with another review, see ya soon and stay pretty!~ (・ω・)/

Review: Etude House Secret Beam Powder Pact

Hero ☆ hero. I'm finally back v( ̄Д ̄)v with another review from Etude House~secret beam powder pact #1. Was supposed to do my 'homework' review actually, but oh well...~onto the product!

aweee so princessy!

Secret Beam Powder Pact adds a healthy sparkle to skin tone with high luster satin pearl look. It has superior oil shine control with little glitterings after apply. Looks fresh with pearl highlighting coverage and silky finish.

My Verdict:
Let's talk about packaging first~!♥♥♥ I think this one is one of the cutest packaging that Etude ever have! With silvery purplish, and swirly art noveau design, omooo...I'm just so that onto the packaging!  If you have seen other EH powder pact range, I'm sure this one resembles EH dream on pact. That one is just a girlier or pinkier version.

'bout the product itself, well, since I'm not really a 'powder' person. I'd say that it's just another run of the mills compact powder. Though, actually my dermatolog prohibited me to put on powder, any kind of powder, and also she told that powder (especially compact one) is very dangerous to our skin. Meh...  not really a bother cuz me myself don't really like powder pact in real! Hohohoh... Oil control is fine, and it goes a long way.

Comes with a thin puff that looked crumbly. As for the coverage, it's super super sheer and shiny, hence I woudn't recommend this one if you're looking for a pact with a good coverage. It has a fine shimmer that add sparkle and gives a silky finish, a bit more to dewy rather than matte.

This pack would give you more than setting your BB cream and foundie, it adds sparkle and shine! it would dissapear and blend naturally with natural skin tone. But because of its transculency, I couldn't swatch it properly >.<
Applied heavily-not blended
Sparkle Sparkle!
You can barely see the shimmer once you applied it on your face, but I do believe that is the shimmering things that give a sparkle and shiny-dewy finish to your look
it's waaay better than my old Palgantong loose powder with its overdosis shimmers! My bestie gave me her palgantong cuz she didn't like the product, so neither do me. lol... (^_^; )

Sorry no proper FOTD on this post, so for the substitute:
LOL!☆☆☆desperate looking! mwahaha..
