Althea has come so far in just 2 years! Craaaazyyy!!! In the span of 2 years they have revolutionized and streamlined and improved forever and ever and ever the way Southeast Asians shop for K-Beauty products. Remember when we used to suffer with all our K-Beauty purchases in the customs office? Those days are long gone. And going beyond that, they went from just Southeast Asia to delivering products worldwide in less than 2 years! And then remember when they did the app? Who would’ve thought they’d be able to make shopping even more irresistible? Althea really always is looking for new mountains to climb.
And now, this August, they are proud to unveil their newest baby, their own brand! And the first release is their Petal Velvet Powder. I am looking forward to a future of Althea eyeshadows, lip tints, BB cushions and like everything else. But today, let’s review the powder first! BTW, get Php200 off Althea if it’s your first time by clicking on this link! And yes, if you were wondering, everything on the flatlay above can be purchased from Althea.
Once it’s blended, this is how it looks like. You know that it’s somehow still there, especially that I used flash photography, but generally, you also know that it’s almost not there anymore.
This is the first time I used the product. I used it over my L’Oréal Infallible Pro Matte foundation. Since L’Oréal’s Infallible Pro Matte foundation is a very mattifying powdery foundation, the results were not good when it was freshly applied.
Even under the best lighting, my skin just looked so dusty and blotchy in this photo. This was taken before I left the house.
Three hours later, my makeup still looks as if it’s been freshly applied, with only the lip makeup getting erased by the food I ate at this restaurant. I felt that this was how it should look like.
But after blending everything in to the best of my abilities, things become OK. I love how I didn’t have to worry about my makeup for the rest of the day as my skin was shine free all day.
