Dati pa akong mahilig sa makeup. And just because I became a mom e hindi na ako mag makeup or ayos. Mas opposite. Mas naging mahilig ako and I started collecting, too. I believe kasi that if you feel good about yourself, nag iiba din ang tingin mo sa lahat ng bagay. Kaya sobrang naexcite ako when Althea sent their makeup box! Will have more products to try and play with. I’m pretty much sure you have seen already on your newsfeed the new products that Althea has just produced. You know, when Althea first launched their Petal Velvet Powder (read my post about that here), I kind of knew that they might eventually go this route which is their makeup line! And oh boy did they deliver! Well, I have two words for you to describe their makeup line – PIGMENTED and AFFORDABLE (heart heart). I just love love the Althea'a Exclusive Makeup Box!
So here are the new products by Althea:
1. Althea Watercolor Cream Tint
2. Althea Flawless Creamy Concealer
3. Althea Spotlight Eye Glitter
4. Eye Palette Sunrise & Moonrise BCL x Althea
5. Althea Skin Relief Spot Film Gel

• I LOVE THE COLORS! You can mix and blend for any occasion.
• The shadows are very pigmented! I really love how easy it is to blend.
• There are some shimmers, glitters, and only a few mattes though. So if you are more into mattes but want to explore a new look.. you must try this!
• I love how compact it is and I can easily put this in my bag and bring it with me everywhere.
• Don’t forget to remove the plastic film strip of the mirror! I’m glad they have a mirror coz it really makes it so much easier to put on eye shadow.

• Very pigmented siya but not too heavy on the skin!
• I’m very pleased to say that it is easy to blend on your skin! Just dab dab with a sponge and ang bilis nya mag “disappear” sa face mo.
• Also if you have tried other concealers, you will notice a drying effect. But the Althea Flawless Creamy Concealer DOES NOT DO THAT! You won’t feel cakey or dry.

• At a first glance, the Althea Spotlight Eye Glitter 01 Gold Light’s packaging does not look gold but white. Don’t worry though coz when you apply it to your lids, it’s definitely gold!
• The brush is very thin and precise.
• The glitter is not too glaring. You have the control how much sparkle you want on your eyes.
• Personally, I use my fingers to spread it more evenly.
• You can wear it as it is, all glitter, then wear black eyeliner para pure sparkly look or you can use it as an accent and put a small amount in the middle of your eyelids.
ALTHEA WATERCOLOR CREAM TINT
*General Description: Get deliciously juicy lips with Althea's Watercolor Cream Tints! These pretty tubes give you the best of all worlds with the pigmentation of a lipstick, the long-wearing power of a stain and the moisturizing formula of a gloss. Bold, pigmented and equipped with a pretty sheen, these lippies contain hyaluronic acid and squalene to prevent chapped lips from flaking, perfect for stashing in your purse for easy touch-ups and comfortable wear. Pick from 4 different shades to suit your mood!
Skin Type: All types
Size: 4.5ml per Watercolor Cream Tint
Price: ₱ 260
Shades: 01 Plum Cream, 02 Strawberry Cream, 03 Peach Cream, 04 Marron Cream
• I was surprised how one swipe pa lang ay very pigmented na!
• They all have the same scent. It was kind of sweet but not overpowering.
• It also tastes kind of sweet when you lick your lips. • If you are into mattes, this might not be for you because its quite bright. If you want to tone it down, you can put some pressed powder on your lips to give it a soft muted look!
• Yes it does have the power of a stain! The color won’t rub off with just tissue. Even if you use wet wipes it will take a while. I would advise using an oil based lippie remover.
