I got this Buckwheat Loose Powder from SkinFood quite awhile back. Used it a couple of times and plain forgot about it. It’s a fairly fine loose powder with above average oil control. However, as with all loose powder, you’ll need to use it with a foundation or makeup base to get sufficient coverage. So, being lazy, I stopped using it after a few applications. In addition, I was introduced to mineral makeup and found the latter better performing.
Of all the Korean skincare and cosmetic brands that are available in Singapore, only SkinFood captures my interest, thanks to their pretty packaging, wholesome natural goodness of food ingredients and affordable pricing. I haven’t actually examined their ingredient list since those in English are not readily available. But from what I can gather from their website, they use mostly herbal and plant ingredients with no colorings, additives or preservatives.
My impression of Korean ladies based on my visits to that country some years back is they are very well dressed. In fact, I thought they were rather formal in their dressing. The office ladies whom I interacted in the past wore suits mainly, though most of them seem to like showing off their legs quite a bit. However, based on what I’ve seen from the media these few years, this seems to be changing. Korean fashion wear is looking more feminine, using details like laces, ruffles, bows with cuttings that emphasize the body shape.
If there is a Korean celebrity that I adore, it has to be the naturally beautiful Song Hye Kyo (宋慧乔). Just look at how gorgeous she looks in this new set of photos for Laneige and you’ll know why.
So it’s little wonder that the number one cosmetic brand in Korea has picked her as their new model to replace Jeon Ji Hyun who was the in-house model for Laneige since January 2004.
