For a while now, Korean makeup is in trend in all parts of the world, especially Southeast Asia. More and more people, including myself, are starting to explore the dynamic world of K-makeup brands! However, I believe not all Korean makeup brands are readily available in our countries which makes it hard to obtain the latest lipstick probably Han Ga-In or Park Shin Hye is wearing.
Not to worry, it’s good news for all you ladies residing in SEA! Althea Korea, founded since June 2015, brings you K-beauty all the way from Koreaaaa!~ Let’s dig into my Althea Beauty Haul, shall we?
I’ve managed to get a variety of products from brands I have never really tried before. I was so excited to test them all out!
So all you have to to is to login to http://sg.althea.kr and you’ll see a some featured products and promotions on their website banners.
Remember my huge Korean haul on ShopandBox (full post here)? In my haul, I picked out several lip products that were made surprisingly similar to their U.S. counterparts. What better way to compare which is more desirable than to write a review for it? 😉
I’ve put 3 different types of lip products to the test, namely 2 types of tinted lip balms and a lip stain. I’m going to be comparing:
- Benefit Cha Cha Balm & Peri Pera Milk Balm in Peach
- Dior Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm & IOPE Water Fit Tint Lip Balm
- YSL Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain (#14) & Espoir Waterstain Lip Glow (Bite Me)
Once again, I am ShopandBox-ing! 😀 This is already my fourth order because honestly, I am just a very lazy shopper. I would pay for someone to shop my list for me and get my items delivered all the way to my doorstep! 😉 As seen on my Instagram, you’d probably guess (I think you don’t have to guess…) that I’m a HUGE makeup/beauty junkie and I collect all-things-beauty from all over the world!
Of course, to be a makeup junkie, one has to buy and buy and buy, right? 😉 Just kidding. Anyway, thanks to ShopandBox, I managed to haul awesome makeup products from famous brands in Korea that are unavailable in Singapore, how cool is that?!
