Unboxing Althea Year End Box: Time to Party!



2016 is almost over, and honestly, I am all excited for 2017 already. This year has been a hell of a ride; there were pleasant hellos and painful goodbyes, a lot of firsts and surprises. Taking all the ups and downs into consideration, I realised that it has been a pretty good year for me; amazing actually. It will be a bittersweet parting but I am also looking forward to a lot of exciting plans next year, and because of this I wish to say goodbye to this year with style.

Santa Althea might have heard my wish, and last month they released a new trendy box called the 'Red Box' that is filled with amazing K-beauty products, curated for a complete year-end party look. In all seriousness, my heart skipped a beat when I saw the product listing. For the price of RM129, those who purchase this box will receive 8 full sized makeup products, making each cost about RM16 in average. Crazy right?! The products include:


1. Etude House Double Lasting Foundation (Sand)
2. Aritaum Styling Eye Palette (Beige Beige)
3. W.Lab 3D Shape Shading
4. W.Lab 3D Shape Highlighter
5. Makeup Helper Mocca Frappe Eyeliner
6. 7Hara My First Tint (Red)
7. Witch's Pouch Love Me Blusher (Rose Blossom)
8. Etude House My Beauty Tool Eyelashes (Volume)


See? Can you believe it? The Etude House Double Lasting Foundation alone will cost you about RM80+ in Malaysia (around 18,000krw or RM70 if in Korea) which is more than half of the price of the box. I have been hearing a lot about this foundation before, even from a close friend. Some people call it the dupe for Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation which is well-known for its staying power. Both has been on my wishlist for sometimes so I guess I just came across a pot of gold in Althealand. LOL. The shade included in this box is Sand which based on my reading equals to number (22-23) for Korean foundation or BB/CC cream standard shade.


The next item is Aritaum Styling Eye Palette in Beige Beige which cost around (10,000krw) which translate to around RM37+ in Malaysia. I love that it comes with five shades and is also travel sized, which is perfect for me to bring in my bag for a quick touch-up.


I am also really happy about the W-Lab 3D Shape Highlighter & Shading palettes that I got in the box too (each is sold around RM60+ too). With 3 shades in each palette, it's going to be easy to mix and match according to my makeup look and skin tone.



Makeup Helper is actually a brand that I have never heard of before so I was really curious about it. The shade of the eyeliner included in this box is in Mocca Frappe, a shimmery brown gel liner. It's definitely zombie-pocalypse ready as this eyeliner doesn't budge once it dries off!


Witch's Pouch Love Me Blusher in Blossom Rose has a very pretty shade. It's my go to shade nowadays, even when it's not party time!


Despite not being my first lip tint, the 7Hara My First Tint in Red mesmerised as if it was my first. Pigmentation is awesome and I love the sleek black packaging it has. Definitely one of the best lip tints I have ever tried. It doesn't bleed out of my lip line either which what usually happens with other lip tints.


Last but not least is the Etude House My Beauty Tool falsies (Volume). I'm not really a falsies person as I can't put on a contact lens but I love how this one look. Gonna save it for the next party I am attending soon!


This Red Box is also great for makeup newbies as it contains the majority of items they would need. Awesome right? That's why the box sold out so fast not only in Althea Malaysia website but also on Althea Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia and Thailand. If you didn't manage to get this one, don't fret! Althea will release a different kind of beauty & trendy boxes every month featuring various theme. Their previous one includes; Superfood Box, Life-Proof Box, Cute Box and All About the Eye Box. Unlike typical beauty boxes, you won't need to subscribe to this monthly. This mean, you have the power to choose which box would suit your need best.

Simple Korean style makeup created with the products with this box!
