Hello lil fairies!

My fave shopping site called Althea is finally 1 y/o! It feels just about yesterday they were here! An array of Korean brands on the website is expanding larger too compared to the first day they raised their curtains up! Ok I smell an overly burned pocket suddenly lol

Althea is originated from South Korea and firstly launched in Malaysia on the last year, followed by the others southeast asia countries like Singapore, Philippines and Indonesia.

Last month, Althea threw an awesome birthday party celebrating their 1st anniversary ever! I'm so glad that I was invited along to their happening birthday party held at RUANG, Subang. Let's look what they got on their very first birthday event!

Saengil Chukahamnida Althea!

The beauties that welcomed us at the registration counter.

Althea birthday cake in the middle of pinkish ambience! 

If you've always thought that beauty products looks delectable, now is the right time where you can eat them LOL (They were made out of icing sugars)

Althea turns 1 and counting! 

Die high sugar level me!
The cookies were soo cute, a bit sayang to dig in lol

The bingsu bar, the taste was not bad and it cooled down the body especially in this humid weather.

4 variants of Kimbap and they satisfied the lil tummy! 

The environment of the birthday event of Althea outside the activity hall. 

This was my first time trying out a soda drink with cotton candy, it tasted so good and sweet, the fizzing sound they made when I threw the cotton candy in was somehow addictive haha

Arisa senpaiii OMG finally met her in real life! I love to read her blog for the trendy Japanese-related stuff and I always follow her cosplay updates be it on her new costume or etc. She is one of my inspirations besides Tammy and the rest.

Am sure she is much more older than me but she looks young as always! Would love to learn about her secret lol
Was nice meeting you again Carol!

Is there any lipsticks this big exist in this world? I might interested to purchase LOL

Dee OMG it has been so long! Glad to know you are doing all well, and he always rocks the diva look! 

I spent the whole day talking to this lovely girl, Nicole. Looking forward to see you again on the future events!

It's time to cut the cake, by Frank Kang, our cutest Althea CEO in the house! Oh and he sang us a song, I didn't know he can actually sing! I posted a video on my IG so if you'd like to see what's going on the event in a brief just check out my IG okayy

Caught this moment when the humble Frank kindly handed Althea balloon to one of the fellow bloggers for the balloon popping session for the lucky draw! He said there's something in the balloon prepared for us! 

Ready to see what's inside? Ok POP!

Lordd, I got a free It's My Cushion Set cushion case! and It's in the pink color (forgot to take a photo of it and I left it in Trg already, my bad) Thanks for the lil surprise Frank! Thanks for all the lucky draw sponsors too, It's My, WondeRuci and Aromatica for all the surprises!

I don't mind to die and getting buried in this box full of cosmetics haha!

Kamsahamnida for everything Frank! What a very down to earth and friendly CEO he is! Glad to have met with you again!  

My big biig biiiiigest inspiration on this journey, thank you so much for always being so inspiring and helpful to the noob me Tammy!

Kak Naniii, looked amazing and bubbly as always!

I got a print of the wefie in the Althea box full of cosmetics from Glitz & Glam Studio Booth! Will keep this as one of the sweet memories in 2016 of my life. Let us all get buried in this box lol 

If nobody noticed me I think I've already ran away with the cake LOL
The cake was so pretty, I swear!

The party was soooo adorable, everything and everyone were wrapped in pink color!
I met the other blogger friends, Kak Ella, Juneci, Reiko, Mira, Anis, Sydney, Lee yan, and etc as well alas I truly forgot to have a selfies with them lol anyway it was nice to see them around after such a long time!

Everyone invited were given a special 150 pts to shop on Althea website too, that was the biggest sursprise of the whole event!! I got mine as well, why oh why Althea just can't stop from engraving smiles on beauty lover's faces!

Hey watermelons!
(lol it's kinda hot these days my head keep thinking about sucking watermelon to cool down the body XD )

Finally, I get to try this awesome CC cream from Kosé Sekkisei that I always wanted to! If you missed anything about this brand here, a brief info on previous post regarding this fave beauty brand of mine!

Big shout out to Kosé for sending these babies to me, I'm so over the moon! Besides loving how oriental and classy the packagings are, I always love the scents they are formulated with. It's very Johnson baby powder-like to me! lol

Before I miss this out, the Kosé Sekkisei Emulsion that I received along wears a LE packaging with my fave sakura flowers on! Hearts everywhere!

I used to be a hardcore fan of BB creams (am still do) before the cushion trend hit all over beauty markets, making me stick to cushion-typed makeup most of the time because they're very convenient. Yet CC creams (I mean the "not so cushion" ones lel) never lost their places to my preference, I love them as well. They're very lightweight and gives me the most natural look when I'm not feeling like going out looking like a fab bitch (LOL)

While BB means "Blemish Balm" (I'm sure almost all girls know this) CC means "Color Correct". The name itself is self-explanatory, it corrects the skin tone by evening them out and it helps with the redness. CC cream is not for a full coveraged makeup, just enough for a very quick light and natural look. I prefer to use foundation better if I'm going for that "bitch I'm fab" look (LOL again)

Kosé Sekkisei brand was invented to bring women's dream of having a snow white's fair skin into reality so you can relate it to their White CC cream, it's here to help you achieving that glowing fair and healthy looking skin, in the most natural way without looking heavy.

Comes in a fairly moderate sized tube with a pump so rest assured hygiene freaks haha, it make it easy to control the amount of usage. Another thing that I love about this CC cream is it has SPF50+/PA++++, pls find yourself in an amazement now lol
It contains UV filter(s) like Titanium Dioxide, Octinoxate, Tinosorb M, Uvinul A Plus & Tinosorbs. How protective do you think a CC cream can be against the damaging UV rays?! //rubs eyes.

I don't really have that many flaws I wanna hide on my skin, just combating with some redness that I hate to see on so this CC cream is perfect for it. My skin is rather thin that almost all veins under my epidermis layer are slightly visible to sight, and it's not something freaky to see my face getting flushed most of the time.

All I need on the day I'm not wearing any makeup is something light with a "no-makeup finish" with an ability to cover up discoloration my skin have a.k.a flush & redness on the go.

Talking about skin pampering while giving that soft-focus effect that blurs out imperfections, this brightening Japanese CC cream has all 5 goodness (oriental herbs) combined together namely Job's Tears Seed Ferment Filtrate, Angelica Acutiloba Root Extract, Melothria Heterophylla Root Extract, Rose (Rosa Multiflora) Extract & Rehmannia Root Extract. According to my concern with my dry skin, I don't fancy matte finish much and not only this brightens up the complexion, it also helps with the moisture. My skin looks dewy whenever I wear this on.

Comes with 2 shades, 01 & 02, mine is the latter (Ochre) and the shade is the standard shade for Japanese/Asian women.

I used a very thin layer of Kosé Sekkisei White CC Cream here equal to one pump only and look at the result! Noticed the difference rite? My bare skin is slightly reddish. 

For even more perfect and bright complexion, use Kosé Sekkisei in the following order Lotion (refreshing toner) > Emulsion > White CC Cream. You can find out more about their star product, Kosé Sekkisei Lotion and Kosé Sekkisei Emulsion on my previous post about them.

Products mentioned in this post:

  • Kosé Sekkisei White CC Cream 26mL/30g - RM120 (±)
  • Kosé Sekkisei Emulsion 70mL - RM70 (±)

Thank you so much again Kosé Malaysia for the gifts! //flying kisses. For more info, kindly visit KOSÉ MALAYSIA or seek them straight at their counters (available in Parkson, Metrojaya and almost all over Malaysia)

Talk to you guys again on my next post!
