So, here’s a little explanation of how this will work– products are pictured [from left to right] in order of when I apply them, and as such, I will list them in the text body that way, along with a little comment/description of each.
If any of these products catches your eye, and you’d like to know more about it than the short commentary provided in this post, feel free to drop a comment or contact me through any of the contact info provided on the menu bar at the top of the blog, and I’d be happy to do a review request for you~
When you have skin as sickly-ghost-pale as mine, you often need to devise creative methods of tampering with your skin/base makeup in order to get the shades you buy to eventually acquiesce to match your actual skin tone. The most recent method I’ve devised– which I plan to write a comprehensive post containing many different products and example photos on soon– is to use asian whitening/”tone-up” creams in place of a white mixer, so I can buy a foundation or BB cream based on formula instead of just ‘this is almost remotely white enough to suit me’, then mix in the whitening primer to make it closer to my face shade.
I bought this SON&PARK Beauty Filter Cream– a whitening tone-up cream- for that very reason (that is, to try for mixing in with my makeup, and to have a wider variety of products, including a high-end one, for when I write that future post), and I’m going to be upfront in saying, the most shocking thing about this product for me was the size of the container.
let me just… here’s a size comparison.
…but you guys are here for some info on the product, not to stare at an old can of my father’s caffeine free Diet Dr. Pepper, right? Then, onto the swatches + mini-review~
[and no… it’s not called a mini-review because the product is really tiny…]
