I’ve been so addicted to finding new beauty products and tips these days, so I recently made a trip to Ainz & Tulpe, a Japanese cosmetics store. I wasn’t really planning on buying these, but I picked up a CC cream by PGT Cosmetics and Nude in the Box by Rimmel London. I’ve only used both products once, but I am already satisfied with my purchases.
Nude in the Box comes in 3 different palettes, with 5 different shades each. The two shades on the left are matte, and the two shades on the right are pearly shadows. The lightest shade in the middle is for highlighting. Basically, you can create a day look and a night look with this one palette. I tried the matte shades for work – the application was smooth and it lasted all day. Love it!
The CC cream did everything it was supposed to do – it moisturized, acted as a primer for my makeup, and evened out my skin tone and provided SPF. I usually use liquid foundation, but I didn’t need it at all when using this CC cream. To cover up any trouble spots, I just applied a bit of concealer and set it with some loose powder. The weather has been quite dry in Tokyo lately, but my skin felt moisturized throughout the day with this cream. If you’ve tried other CC creams, let me know if you have any recommendations!
