Lioele Sun Elastic Pact SPF26

Soooo, today, I had this thought in mind and I couldn't shake it, "I cannot use powder foundation for touchup through the day." Even though I had been doing it previously, once it got into my head, I couldn't help but obey. Since the P&J SA said I could only exchange my P&J Pressed Powder 05 for 02 next week, I had to find something else to use for touching up through the day. And since I had a beauty voucher for Stardust at John Little, I decided I could get something there. The voucher could only be used on its own, without other discounts, so I headed to the Lioele stand and tried all the powders. I wanted something Korean so that if I liked it, I could perhaps get more in S Korea when I'm there. I decided on Lioele Sun Elastic Pact and took my chance with it, crossing my fingers that it wouldn't be overpriced compared to its original price in won. It costs $39SG. With my voucher, it costs much less than the original price of 28,000won (which works out to about $32SG). In fact, on the Lioele website, there's a sale for this item, at 19,600won=$22.50SG). Overall, I don't feel cheated. The powder is fine, lightly perfumed and glitters with light shimmers. A light touch and blending is needed when applied on the face. There is a danger of it looking too cakey if I apply too much, but otherwise, it's a good substitute for until I get my P&J replacement. The packaging is rather bulky but quite cute. powder Cathy from Blushhh Baby gave me this award! It's my first! I'm so pleased, thank you so much Cathy!

Ah the Lioele compact looks so pretty!♥
Sometimes MUA are so difficult, why can´t you just exchange the stuff they recommended wrong?-.-

That compact is sooo kawaii! the powder looks very nice too.

Jess, that enabler via Fuz, caused me to purchase 3 things from Protective Foundation N in 10, the new whitening serum, and that cute kitty bad with the coral blush and lippie!

I am sure you will be happy when you get your new powder!

yay! if anything it might be dinner cuz I know Naomi said she has exams...even on a weekend poor girl. how long are you going to be in seoul? you must be super excited!
the P&J SAs were the opposite of the one you encountered. I went to the P&J counter at least 3 times and only one of them was really nice and gave me samples, the rest didn't. i don't understand why they act so bitchy sometimes, like the one you talked about. wouldn't they want our business?? hehe

I have the Lioele Sun Elastic Pact as well. I was a bit shocked by the small glitters inside, but fortunately they are not too obtrusive. I wonder if it will really block out the sun like a sunblock does with the same SPF.

Oi, I never listen to MUA's anymore...they traumatized me...LOL, but seriously, even when a MUA has good advise, I kind of think they just want to sell their goods...too bad about that
