There are three Korean cosmetics shop in SM Fairview (that I know of) - Etude House, Tony Moly, and Nature Republic. For some reason, it was the Etude House that I first entered, so it was where I bought my very first BB Cream. At 700+ pesos, it was priced okay; my Mary Kay liquid foundation was within the same price range anyway.
It was easy to apply, and I love that I didn't feel the need of putting foundation anymore. After days of using it, I felt a little tightening on my skin - something I appreciated.
The day I purchased this, they also gave a freebie - a sachet of Silk Scarf shampoo. I wasn't able to photograph it, but I loved how it made my hair bounce; even my sister who's having problems with limp, thinning hair said she felt her hair got a little volume after using the product.
Oh.. going back to the BB Cream - I have been using it for a month now and the tube is still half-full... a great value for money because I know it would still take time before I purchase my next tube.
Are you using BB Cream? What's your brand?
If you used different kinds of BB Creams... which one would you recommend?
Last Sunday, I went back to Etude House (Market! Market! branch). I own their membership card, so I felt a little partial to this store... but when sister finally get her Tony Moly card, I might start checking other brands, too.
Anyway, I bought the Code: B strong eyes cream liner. Even then, I have loved the look of my eyes with black liner (sister said it makes my eyes a little bigger), but I always struggled finding a good product that wouldn't smudge right away. I didn't make a mistake buying this. Not only that it didn't smudge after a few hours, it actually stayed the entire day! It's a bit expensive, but it is one quality product... I don't mind buying another one when I emptied this.
Just so you know, this dries quick, so close the bottle real tight and wash the brush after application.
I also bought a bottle of their nail polish, but we still haven't used it... I will just ask my sister to write about this because she had much prettier nails.
As a freebie, they gave me a sachet of Baking Powder BB deep cleansing foam, and I will talk about it as soon I tried it.
This were my only Korean cosmetics, but I think I am now starting to develop a love for their products.
