Happy Friday! I'm starting the weekend with some new makeup that I got in this Althea box I was kindly sent. I love trying new things out in subscription boxes and always find new favorite things. This box has 6 Korean beauty products and since they're so in trend I get to try a fe more. I wanted to do an unboxing with you today since it has been a while and this one is no exception with all the exciting things inside. So let's see what's inside!
Althea recently launched and I've seen a lot about them from my other blogger friends and was curious about them. I've been kind of getting into more Korean beauty products and with it being a bit easier to obtain for me I can try a few out pretty easily. It does get a bit expensive though so I'm glad this is an alternative plus I can just have sent to my house instead of going to the mall. The best thing about it is not only are they at an affordable price but they are a 100% authentic according to their site and are an authorized seller of original Korean brands so you can feel safe paying for the real deal since there are so many fakes around. So that is a little bit about them of course you can read more here and here for everything I missed.
They just started these boxes but if you are not interested in the boxes and want a fix on some individual Korean products than there are so many choices at a discount rate. I had a browse and there are some awesome brands as well. I do like the idea of the boxes that are curated by them and you get to try new products you may not considered before and they all go together. I always like that and as I said before it's like getting a mini present. With this it shows you what exactly you are getting so you can either pass it or get it. I don't think there is a subscription so if you see a box you like you just buy it and there's a new one every month with a different theme. I'm quite a fan of that style as it is a change of what I am used to from others I did unboxings from.
Our beauty boxes were launched late last year with the goal of letting our fans try KBeauty products at a price they can't resist. These boxes are launched every month on Althea, and they may be themed on makeup, skincare or both depending on the trend from Korea. This box focuses just for coverage. It's called the Perfect Cover Box containing 6 products handpicked by the Althea Korea team to achieve flawless looking skin this year.
It retails for 1,441php and you can find this box here but it is currently out of stock. I'll update you just in case it comes back in stock and you want to grab it yourself.
Secretkey Cover Up Skin Perfecter // Price: 0php // Size: 0mlThe first thing in the box is this skin perfecter and I think this is a foundation.It has great consistency and has great coverage. It isn't very thick and gives a natural finish. The color kind of goes with my skin tone but I haven't worn it outside my bedroom in daylight yet so I am still testing it out but so far I'm liking it. My initial first impression of this would be a good 3.5/5 but I still need to try it out fully so more before giving a full review. I didn't list the link, the price or size as I can't find it on their site and anything on it but if I do happen to find something I will update this.

SwatchesNow here are the swatches! I usually never include swatches in my unboxings because it is supposed to be a what is inside and my initial thoughts post but I figured it would be nice and change things up a bit. Plus it will sow you what everything looks like on my arm to get a sort of feel for the products I guess. I labeled everything so you can see each swatch all in a row. So starting from the left I swatched the lip crayon. The bigger line is obviously me running it across my hand to build up the color and the thin line is one swipe with the lip crayon. As you see you can build up the color quite nicely and it is a lovely strawberry red. The second swatch is the mineral powder and again the white dots is when I shook the product on my hand and next to it is when it is blended down but I didn't blend it in full so you can see it. It does blend in seamlessly and not have a white cast to it but for swatch purposes I left it unblended to show you. The third is the perfect cover concealer and it is that stick concealer. Again, the one on the left is it built up and the right is one stroke of it. It has pretty good coverage and can build up nicely. The fourth is the conceal cushion and this has great pigmentation and coverage. On the left is it blended out and the right is the initial swatch where I first put it on. In one swipe it leaves so much product and has good pigment. Last swatch is from the perfecter cover up and it is quite thick. The right one is the first swatch and then it blended. All have great pigmentation and great coverage and it shows it in these swatches.
this box as it looks interesting.
If you want to watch my first reaction of opening the box and my initial thoughts of these products than you can watch it on my Youtube channel here or above.
That was my unboxing of the Althea Perfect Cover Box. I quite enjoyed that and miss doing these unboxings as I said. I hope you liked this and let me know if there are any other boxes I can get and unbox next. So I guess that is it and I hope you lovelies have an amazing weekend!
