[K-Beauty] Kate Mousse BB Cream - Cream to Powder

I have been doing some experimenting with new BB creams, foundations, etc. One of my more favorite ones I have tested out is the Kate Mousse BB Cream.

Honestly, I haven't tried any American mousse foundations and I think this may have been the first one mousse products I have tried (other than the food ones).

The issue I usually have in American products is that there are SO MANY shades to choose from and, as a result, I am always in between two or three different colors. The Kate mousse came in two different shades at the store I was in (there may be other shades, but I can only attest to what I saw). I chose the darker of the two. It was a pretty good match for me.
The mousse is quite smooth. It goes on smoothly with medium coverage. After application, the creamy smooth mousse consistency kind of changes to a powdery matte look. I tend to look for matte finishes in my products.

Since I have combination skin, the mousse to powder finish met its first test. The powder didn't settle into my dry patches and it also didn't settle into my smile lines or anywhere really. After a full day of wear, it was a little patchy, though, but it did last a long time overall. I didn't reapply throughout the day.

It came with a makeup sponge. Not really a good one, but since it was free with purchase, that was kind of expected.

I would probably repurchase this if I have the opportunity, but I can't find it online at Amazon or YesStyle, unfortunately. If you know where I can find it, comment below!

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
