As promised, I am back with a couple more items that I enjoyed from my Korean Cosmetics Experience: Numero Uno. Before going further, I must admit that I will be returning time and again to my little cosmetics shop for new arrivals. I'm shocked with joy, at the pigmentation that these products offer, and am tempted to do some comparisons to the likes of the MAC mineralized products. This price point is friendlier, and the packaging is way cuter--si?
Por ejemplo, this Cathy Cat mineral duo shadow--what color payoff! And the little eyeshadow sponge that accompanies it? Sure, that thing will never be used, but it's still cutesy--and swings off of the little circle nob on the pan by a string.
My favorite find was the Iope Air Cushion Sunblock. Essentially it's a spongy foundation, with very light coverage. It beholds the powers of SPF 40 (this I love), and that's not all--it claims to block heat, and add a cooling function to the skin. Oh, and it's sweat proof. It reminds me a bit in appearance, of a similar Shu Uemura product, but this one actually feels like water being applied to the skin. Each box comes with a refill of the product, so you get twice the amount of product for your money (which is about $35). I really like.
Is SPF something that you take into account when purchasing a foundation/face product?
