IOPE Air Cushion Matte Longwear Foundation in "N21": Review and Swatches
While browsing the Korean makeup selection on Althea Korea, the IOPE Air Cushion range really caught my eyes. The cushion trend has been around for a few years now but I've only recently started appreciating its merits. Given that the IOPE Air Cushion is one of the most popular cushion foundations on the market, I thought I'd give it a try. The brand offers several different kinds of cushion foundations (ex. Intense Cover, Natural Glow, Moisture Lasting) but because it's summer and I have oily skin, I opted for the Air Cushion Matte Longwear SPF 50+ ($32.50 USD on sale). This version of the Air Cushion promises a hydrating but long-lasting wear and a matte but radiant finish. So how well does it work? Read my review to find out......

Too Cool For School | After School BB Foundation Lunch Box #2: Review and Swatches
During my Althea Korea haul, a ton of adorable products caught my eyes but none so won my heart like the cute packaging of the After School BB Foundation Lunch Box ($41.50 USD, on sale for $17) from Too Cool For School.

Plus, the product is actually a three-in-one kit with a BB Foundation, a cream concealer, and a cream highlighter! Well, is the formulation as good as the packaging? Read my review to find out......
