Althea Makeup Review and Swatches with a Quick Tutorial

2:32:00 PM

Althea Korea now has a Makeup line! It was released early this year so I have been testing it out for a few weeks now. I was lucky enough to have received the exclusive Althea Makeup Box.

The Makeup Box came with the following:
Flawless Creamy Concealer with 4 shades
Watercolor Cream Tints with 4 shades
Spotlight Eye Glitter wth 2 shades
BCL X Althea Sunrise and Moonrise Eyeshadow Palette with 8 shades

To start with, here is their Flawless Creamy Concealer. It retails for only Php 200 each.
This concealer features:

Multi-layer Moisture Retention
With a moisturizing formula. It keeps the skin feeling plump and hydrated while providing the complexion with a fresh, semi-matte finish.

Skin Enhancing Formula
The concealers are buildable and have a long-wearing, all-day formula that doesn't oxidize. It also smoothens unevenness of the skin to give a perfected look.

Vanilla, Ginger, Honey and Mocha

I liked using the concealer on my undereye area and for brightening certain areas of my face. It works really well for that purpose, but it lacks coverage if you are wanting to conceal spots and blemishes.

My rating: 3.5 out of 5

Another product from the Makeup line is the Althea Watercolor Cream Tint.
They released 4 shades:
- 01 Plum Cream
- 02 Strawberry Cream
- 03 Peach Cream
- 04 Marron Cream

 It retails for Php 260 each. You can also buy the Watercolor Cream Tint Set at only Php 940

All colors are wearable and it is something you can easily mix together. Formulated with both water and oil, this emulsion type consists of 40% hydrating solution.

1. Pigmented on the lips as in the bottle
2. Glides easily onto the lips without a sticky, heavy feel
3. Strong hydrating effect
4. Invigorates the senses with a happy, sweet fruit scent

To put it simply, the Watercolor Cream Tint has the pigmentation of a lipstick, long-wearing power of a stain and moisturizing formula of a gloss.

My rating: 4 out of 5

Up next is their Sunrise and Moonrise Eye Palette in collaboration with Indonesian singer and actress, Bunga Citra Lestari. It retails for Php 1,780.

The BCL X ALTHEA Sunrise and Moonrise Eyeshadow Palette has 8 expertly chosen shades inspired by 2 of BCL's most prominent looks: A fresh look perfect for everyday, and a glamorous look perfect for the stage.

- You can create your own look with various textures such as pearl, glitter and matte finishes
- it has a long-wearing formula that is smooth and blends easily onto the lids
- it has excellent pigmentation which you can apply either dry or wet
- the color selection is something that you can wear alone for that one eye shadow look

There's a little fall out but nothing extreme. I just wished they could have made the formula a bit more buttery. I'd also like to note that the palette has a large mirror which is very handy.

You might not like the shade selection if you prefer using neutral eye palettes.

My rating: 3.5 out of 5

Lastly, here is the Althea Spotlight Eye Glitter. It comes in two shades: Gold Light and Pink Light and retails for Php 300 each

The formula is made with a moisturizing gel that creates a film for longer wear, preventing smudging caused by sweat or water. Just make sure to let it dry for about 5 seconds after you apply on the lids.

It also has a slim applicator that allows for precise and even application. It can be used as an eyeliner, eye shadow or glittery eye topper.

My rating: 4 out of 5

I did a quick tutorial using everything from the Althea Makeup line, including the Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway Sunscreen and the Althea Petal Velvet Powder.

For the Concealer, I used Honey for my undereye area and Mocha to cover dark spots and blemishes.
For the lips, I used 01 Plum Cream
For the cheeks, I used 04 Marron Cream
For the eyes, I used shades 1,2,5 and 6
I also used shade 1 in the eye palette as highlight

Overall I'd say that Althea really did an awesome job with their formulation and shade selection for all the makeup products! Everything is absolutely affordable and skin friendly.

  1. I really like the packaging for the concealer and eye glitters, but kinda sucks that the concealers don't have more coverage. I've never been one for undereye concealing, haha. The lip tint shades look really similar, I really like the finished eyeshadow look that you did!
