It's been such a long time - my apologies! I recently moved and am staying in temporary housing before my BIG move to South Korea!
So, for the time being, nail art is on the back burner. I'm leaving most of my polish in my mom's loving hands while I'm gone! (And moving totally killed my nails/cuticles...)
So instead, I'm going to be focusing on makeup reviews. I have a TON of samples left from the last time I was in South Korea~
And I have duplicates of many of them! Which means good things could be coming your way, my readers ;)
Today I'll be reviewing two products: Skinfood Black Egg Pore Primer and Nature Republic Super Origin Collagen BB Cream.
Here are what the sample packages looked like!
According to the Skin Food website: "A pore-smoothing makeup primer that immediately turns
into a velvety-matte texture to effectively conceal large pores and fine wrinkles."
The Nature Republic BB Cream is a little harder, because the website is entirely in Korean! But this BB Cream has 45ppm(parts per million) of collagen. It also has all 5 star ratings on the site and retails for about $13USD.
Here's the before picture! As you can see, I have fairly clear skin but pretty big pores and a lot of uneven skin tone >.<
And here is the after picture! The primer did a great job filling in my pores and giving a semi-matte finish. The BB Cream gave light to medium coverage, but for the most part evened out the redness.
Skinfood Black Egg Pore Primer
I'm giving this one 4 out of 5 polish bottles! The formula was great, the price isn't too bad, and the longevity was pretty good! I also really liked the feel - not too powdery like most primers I've tried! Once my others run out, this is a might buy!
Nature Republic Super Origin Collagen BB Cream
3 out of 5 polish bottles! While the formula wasn't bad, I felt like the coverage could have been better. It also has the lowest SPF out of all my BB Cream samples. However, I think the price was really nice and the formula would be perfect if you want a super light coverage. :) Probably not something I'd buy, but they have a waterproof formula I'd like to try!
Let me know what you think of my first makeup review!
