Fresh Cherry Tint by Etude House/Effaclar AI by La Roche-Posay/Quince Lip Butter by Korres

Korres Lip Butter in QuinceMelted lipstick in a pot is how I would describe Korres lip butters. The shade Quince is a pink but on my lips it shows up rather deep pink than it is. Not mad on this particular color but I like how it evens out my lips in a swipe and keeps it moisturized as long as the usual lipstick-rub-off culprits are not in the picture.

Fresh Cherry Lip Tint in OR201Etude House Lip TintFresh Cherry tint from Etude House is another lip favorite. Actually, this might be one of my top five lippies. The formulation is a dreamy perfection. Have a lot of good things to say but will reserve it for a proper review. The one in the picture is Orange (#3/OR201), which is a peachy orange, nowhere near the actual color of the bottle.

La Roche-PosayEffaclar DuoEffaclar AI is my hero product this month. For some unknown reasons, my skin has been breaking out tons. And I have the type of skin that leaves marks. Although I have only started using this towards end of the month, maybe just under 2 weeks. It has improved the acne situation tremendously and because it is not loaded with salicylic acid, it is less drying than a regular spot-zapper like the Clean&Clear spot treatment gel. And because of that very reason, it makes it less effective in removing acne scars. I think I have found a good pairing to get rid of acne along with marks for good, will review them it works. Effaclar AI has been review to death, so I won’t post a seperate review for it but I must mention that according to the product info, it can be used under makeup. No. It doesn’t work well under liquid, powder or cream foundation. AI tends to move easily from the surface. Like so…

It is hard enough to layer a foundation with a stippling brush, let alone with finger. The trick is too apply it in a very thin layer, let it dry and then proceed to makeup. A teeny bit too much though might result in some “curdling” effect. Think this one is best reserved for nighttime.

That’s all for my make-up/Skincare favorites. I have had the most amazing Christmas, hope you guys had a lovely holiday too. See you later!
