Hey everyone!!

I'm so sorry for the lack of posts in the past few months but school has just been so hectic T_T But it's all over now as I finally finished all my exams and will be going into University next year, so hopefully I'll have more time to post reviews and other blog posts for you guys :)

Today, I will be reviewing one of my new favs: the Etude House Beauty Shot Face Blur. If you guys haven't heard of this yet, this is basically a makeup primer that is aimed to give you that beautiful photoshopped airbrush finish when you use it under your normal base makeup. So, is it worth all the hype? Let's find out now!!

Full demo and more in-depth review in this video:

The packaging is very sleek and it's also very light weight and portable which is a plus, especially 
for people like me who like to bring makeup around with us just in case we need 
to touch up our makeup throughout the day~

Just pumped out from bottle:

Half blended out with fingers:

Fully blended out:

So after applying one pump of the face blur onto the left side of my face (right side in the photo):

You can see my face is definitely 'blurred' out and my pores seem to be less visible. My skin also looks smoother than the other side. There is still some redness and some acne scarring is still visible.

Now, I'm applying one layer of my 3CE water gloss foundation mixed with my Tonymoly BCDation and blending it in with my Sigma 3DHD kabuki brush (review on this coming soon!)

As you can see, the end results displaying the left side with a dewier and glory finish and my skin looks softer and smoother than the right side. It's more obvious in real life though :)

- Skin looks more airbrushed
- Pores look smaller
- Softer looking skin
- Brightens skin tone
- Smells nice
- Small, portable packaging
- Affordable Price

- Doesn't hold makeup all day
- Not the best at controlling oil
- Doesn't completely 'blur' face
- can't think of anymore T_T

I'm really glad I bought this product and I'm using this on a daily basis. It just makes my overall
makeup look much more nicer and gives a nice dewy effect without looking oily. It doesn't hold my makeup in place for the whole day however it doesn't produce a lot of oil through out the day either so just make sure to set your makeup with some powder around the oilier parts of your face (such as the T-zone and your nose) and bring some oil blotting paper. :)


I think I'll repurchase this unless I find another primer that has better performance than this primer.

What are your thoughts on it? Have you tried it before? Let me know in the comments!! :)

Saturday, 27 June 2015

Hey guys!  I'm super excited today because I get a 2 week holiday from school which means I will be able to film and blog more for you guys <33

Today I will be showing you a recent haul from the lovely bornprettystore which sent me a few items to review for you guys. What I love about this store is the friendly and efficient customer service you get as well as fast shipping (my parcel took less than a week to arrive), cheap affordable prices (as in very cheap!!) and good quality products ranging from hair to beauty to fashion to nails and much more.

So I received 5 products this time which are:

1. Natural Faux Eyelashes
2. Short Pony Hair Concealer Brush
3. Eyebrow Mascara Brown
4. Waterproof Shimmer Eye-shadow Palette #1
5. Eyebrow Pencil Brown

So let's have a look at each item:

1. Natural Faux Eyelashes 

Purchase it here: $0.99

I have yet to try this but looking at the pattern, it definitely looks very natural and it is also very soft so I have very good hopes for these eyelashes. Can't wait to try them on and I will post a pic of it when I do!

Rate: 4+/5

2. Short Pony Hail Concealer Brush

Purchase it here: $1.99

I am super pleased with the quality of this brush as well as the super affordable price! It says it's an concealing brush but I like to use it to pack eye-shadow onto my lids as the brush is very dense and picks up pigment very nicely. It reduces fall out and also allows me to have better precision.

Rate: 4.5/5

3. Eyebrow Mascara

Purchase it here:  $1.99

Front of packaging

Back packaging 

Top swatch

I've used this twice and I do like the consistency of it but the color doesn't suit my hair colour and is a little bit too harsh on the eyebrows for my liking. It hasn't broke me out and is reasonably easy to remove at the end of the day with some eye makeup remover. I wish it was a little lighter and more natural looking~~

Rate: 3.5/5

I used it in this makeup tutorial inspired by suzy from Miss A's music video Only You

4. Water Proof Shimmer Eye-shadow Palette

Purchase it here: $9.49 

I am pretty pleased with this 5 color palette as the color pay-off is decent and there is minimal fall out. There are 6 palettes in this range you can choose from and I chose palette #1 which is a very versatile palette with nice shimmer colors. 

I really like the warm brown shade as it is very pigmented and I am least pleased with the gold shade as it is not very pigmented. It is still nice for highlighting the aegyosals tho ^-^ Considering the price of this palette, I would love to try out the other palettes in this range.

I will do a makeup tutorial on this palette if you would like to see it of course~

Rate: 4/5

5. 2-in-1 Eyebrow Pencil & Brush 

Purchase it here: $1.74

Bottom Swatch
This eyebrow pencil isn't the best eye brow pencil out there and the color doesn't really suit my brows at all even though this is supposed to be the lightest brown. It turns out grey on my brows and the pencil isn't the angled type so it is harder to draw a natural brow shape.

However, it does come with a spoolie on the end which makes the packaging very convenient and nice however the brush is a little hard and doesn't blend out the color too nicely.

Rate: 3.5/5

Overall, I was really pleased with all the products I received and is very grateful that I got the opportunity to review them. If you would like to purchase anything from the store, feel free to use the code XCOSK31 for 10% off your purchase (this is purely for you guys, I don't get any commission).

Thanks for reading this review and haul, I hope to see you guys very very soon! Take care~~ <3

Hey everyone`

Today, I have a review for you guys on one of my recent favorites and new discovery, the amazing: Atrue Real Black Tea True Active CC Cushion SPF 50+/PA+++ in #2 True Beige. Before we get down to the nitty gritty, let me mention that this was kindly sent to me by one of my all time favorite online korean stores to review however all opinions are definitely my own 110%! :)

Brand: Atrue

Shades Available: #1 Light Beige #2 True Beige
Type of Product: CC Cushion
Weight: 12g

Compagnie Coloniale® Black Tea Fermentation (32%)

About Black Tea Fermentation

A·TRUE Black Tea fermentation is accomplished through our diligent work and a series of carefully crafted methods.
The carefully selected tea leaves are fermented twice, enabling their natural ingredients to be delivered to the skin revitalizing it with the tea's essential nutrients, keeping it healthy.

First fermentation with nature

  1. Plucking: We select the finest tea leaves harvested within the Castleton Tea Gardens which boast of fertile soil, moderate wind, and lots of sunshine. The climate is suitable and the temperatures are excellent, enabling the tea to grow as well as it can.
  2. Withering: The newly chosen leaves are then heated by the hot winds for up to 40 minutes, reducing the moisture content.
  3. Rolling: The purpose of rolling is to achieve a final curved appearance as well as to break the leaf's cell walls. This is essential to release key oils which start the chemical reaction of fermentation.
  4. Fermentation: Oxidization occurs around temperatures of 25~30℃ and humidity levels of 95% for 30~100 minutes.

Second fermentation with scientific precision

Through the core skills and precise fermentation processes of A·TRUE, the Black tea comes to life containing even more nutrients which are active constituents for healthier skin. The tea leaves are reproduced enabling very effective nutritional transfer to the skin.


[Radiant + Firming + Hydrating + Tone + Brightening + Boosting]

This revolutionary formula benefits from a foundation which holds six multi-functions that help revitalize and illuminate the skin tone maintaining overall skin brightness and transparency. Micro particles of mineral powder completely fill the uneven skin tone. Its color controlling effects help find the individual natural beauty to show a clear and gorgeous look.

Safe Ingredients Only

A·TRUE tries to minimize harsh chemical ingredients

Formulated without Paraben, Ethanol, Phenoxyethanol, Benzophenone, Triethanolamine, Talc, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum and SLS

Apply by pressing the puffy texture into a moistened sponge and gently pat it onto your face. For touch ups, re-apply as desired.

*Information taken from

Front of Packaging

Back of Packaging

Side of Packaging

The box comes with the CC Cushion and an instruction manual. Unfortunately, no refill or spare sponge is included which is a downside to this product considering the price of this cushion: $ 41.80.

As for the actual packaging of the cushion, I must say I really like it! It's different to most of the other cushion cases out there because it's made of a woody material, hence representing nature and black tea to me.It is also pretty compact and light-weight which makes it so much more easy to carry around in your handbag and makeup bag unlike the laneige bb cushion pore control which is slightly larger and more bulky.

Thickness compared to my Samsung Note 3

Comparison between Atrue CC Cushion & Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control

So like all BB/CC Cushions out there, the cushion comes with a puff inside and a mirror to make application more convenient. I love the color of the cushion on the inside because the light pink contrasts perfectly with the darker brown on the outer package.

And like most BB Cushions/CC Cushions out there, after you lift the flap separating the cushion and the actual product itself, there is usually a sticker with instructions covering the product to ensure it is fresh and moist inside. You can take this off after your first use but I prefer to leave it on for as long as I can bothered hahaha

So, now onto the actual product which is hidden under the sticker. It is packed nicely into a very soft and dense sponge which is the main technology of any BB/CC Cushion. You just simply press the puff into the sponge lightly to pick up some product and apply it to your face as you wish. Of course, you can also use a beauty blender or a foundation brush if that is what your prefer~ The sponge in this cushion looks very high quality and is super packed and dense which I really like because when I press into the puff, the right amount of product comes out unlike some of the other cushions I tried which tend to either give me too much or too little product.

Now, let's quickly talk about the puff itself.

The puffs are so gorgeous and they feel softer than the usual blue puffs that come with most other BB/CC Cushions. However, they are still very dense thus they are able to grab onto a good amount of product and distribute it evenly on to your face. :D

And did I mention that like all BB/CC Cushions, the product can be popped out to be replaced with a new refill when you've finished using it or feel like you have kept it for too long. This is something I really like about cushion type products because it is just so convenient and fuss-free. You don't need to buy a completely new product but just the refill so it also saves your money. :)

The texture of the product is quite runny compared to some other cushions such as the Etude House Any Cushions and Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control. It blends very nicely and feels very light weight on your skin. It doesn't dry extremely fast which is good for people who take time to apply their foundation/base makeup. However, one downside is that it feels a little sticky after a short period of time so make sure you set it with a good setting powder and keep blotting away with blotting paper throughout the day, especially if you have oily/oily-combo skin!~


Before blending out (1 layer)

After slightly tapping in the product lightly

Almost blended out with my bare hands

Fully blended out (=^.^=)

After setting with a translucent powder:

As you guys can see, the CC Cushion is veryyy natural on your skin and blends in flawlessly. It evens out your skin tone and is also able to lighten the appearance of my veins. You can definitely build up on coverage by applyig more layers (but make sure you do it little by little and don't pile it on!!) due to its light texture.

One thing that I thought could be improved is the variety of shades as there are only 2 shades available to choose from: #1 Light Beige and #2 True Beige. They are both on the fairer side so if you have tanner skin, you probably won't look as flattering with them. 

LEFT:  One Layer of CC Cushion Applied: Bare Face

As you can see, the applied side of the face (left) looks much glowy and flawless.

I was actually really surprised by the results of this CC Cushion when I used it for the first time as I thought it would only give a very light coverage and mainly balances out my skin-tone like the other CC creams I own. However, I was wrong because the coverage was actually amazing for a CC Cream and it wasn't heavy at all. My pores were definitely a lot less visible (almost invisible after a short period of time once the product has settled in) and most of my redness, under-eye bags and some major pimples were covered up pretty flawlessly.

It definitely gave more of a dewy finish though so if you don't like that kind of look, this may not be the cushion for you but if you have dry skin, you'll definitely love it! I myself have oily-combonation skin so I wore this CC Cushion out for a day wuthout setting it with any powder to see how it would work with my skin-type. I must say, because this CC Cushion does give a fresh dewy glow, towards the end of the day my skin did look a little more glowy but it wasn't too bad at all. It was definitely managable and would definitely be toned down if I had applied powder and/or used blotting paper through out the day. However, one thing I disliked about this cushion is that it did become a little sticky towards the end of the day so I kind of felt icky because I hate the sticky feeling on my skin. 

The CC Cushion also has quite a strong scent, at least for me, which some of you may or may not enjoy. It had kind of a sweet floral black tea scent which was absolutely fine when applying it to your skin by all means, but can be a little overpowering after a long period of time because the scent would just not go away! IT STAYSS haha Therefore, I did not enjoy it that much due to the scent because I prefer more fresh and clean scents compared to the sweety/floraly scents :(

+ Good Coverage for CC Cushion
+ Light texture
+ Covers Pores
+ Dewy Finish without looking oily
+ Gives overall healthy and glowing skin complexion
+ Strong SPF sun protection
+ Slim Packaging 
+ Light packaging
+ Good quality puff
+ Convenient and easy to apply
+ No Breakouts
+ Doesn't clog pores
+ Has good skincare properties as well (from black tea)

- Only 2 Shades Available
- No Refill + Extra Puff
- Strong Floral Scent
- Sticky after a period of time if not set with powder
- Bit Pricey


Will I repurhcase? I most likely will be when I finish this unless I find another better CC Cushion! I love the consistency and the finish this product gives me and it really does do what it claims to do. It leaves your skin feeling so smooth and soft yet not greasy and oily which I hate a lot! Although it is a little pricey, a small amount goes a long way and you can use it both on its own or combined with yout favorite foundation/base makeup for a flawless yet effortless look!
