LANEIGE | Waterproof Makeup for the Rainy Days
During my last visit to SM Mall of Asia, I had a long stop over at LANEIGE. For those who haven’t tried it yet, it’s one of the popular makeup and skin care brands in Korea. And everyone knows I WORSHIP Korean brands.
They offer a wide variety of both skin care and makeup. According to my beauty blogger friends, their BB Cream is one of the best that they’ve tried.
Rowena Lei (animetric) never fails to mention Laneige whenever I ask for skin care recommendations. Maybe I’ll give it a try when my current moisturizer and emulsion runs out!
Their makeup may be more expensive than other Korean brands like Etude House, Tony Moly or The Face Shop but you’ll immediately know why after trying their products out. There’s a HUGE difference between their foundations and ordinary ones from the cheaper brands. But I guess they cater to a completely different market too so I can’t really compare them.
And oh, for those who are suckers for colorful things, Laneige isn’t all too serious, they also have makeup with cute packaging!
Out of all the products I tried, their Perfect Renew Dual Touch Eyes eye cream caught my eyes! This is the first time I’ve seen a 2-in-1 day and night eye cream. The ones I own are either dual purpose or just for night time use. The day one contains SPF and the night cream has minerals for skin repair. Cool, right? I’m definitely going to save up for this one!
After checking out their products, I wanted to slap myself for missing out on their bloggers’ event last year. But they were kind enough to send me this for review..
Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion. It was highly recommended by their brand manager and according to their SA, it sells like hotcakes.
Ironically, the product contains the word “Snow” but has high SPF (50+ PA+++) to prevent skin damage from UVA & UVB rays.
Each box contains a compact with 15g inside and a refill for you to use as soon as you run out. I think this is a great concept because the quality of your foundation changes as soon as you open it. So it’s good that you have a completely sealed one as backup.
Here’s how it looks inside. I’m shade #23 Sand Beige (mid-tone) It looks a bit dark in the photo because of my room’s yellow light. It’s called the soothing cushion because the BB cream is inside a sponge cushion.
Lightly press on it to get the product. The compact comes with a sponge but I’d rather use my clean fingertips so I don’t waste any ounce of it! :>
(BEFORE Photo) Since I just came from Guam, I’ve been under the sun for a few days so my skin looks terrible! I have visible sun spots, redness and blemishes everywhere! :(
(AFTER Photo) The Snow BB Soothing Cushion has great coverage because it can cover up all my flaws with just one coat. No need to put powder on top!
(WHEN WET Photo) The best thing about it is that it’s waterproof and is easy to remove with any facial wash. It’s perfect for the crazy, bipolar, rainy weather this month so you don’t have to worry about having a “The Notebook” scene with your date when you run under the rain. Teehee! :>
