BB cream BB Cream Nude SPF 20, Erborian
Has been living in my cosmetic bag for at least three years. I think that the literal mania has managed to bore everyone, and the presence or absence of double letters in the name still does not promise anything - I am skeptical about this. Erborian BB Cream is an exception. With him, I realized that no other BB, CC, DD and others are needed, because he gives everything that I want to see in a foundation for every day: a natural semi-matte finish (when freckles are in place, peeling is not emphasized, minor imperfections the skin is hidden); problem-free application even with a brush, even with a sponge, even with your fingers; and a truly versatile shade that suits me 80% of the time throughout the year! I have an average Slavic skin color - light, but not snow-white. By the way, he also came up to most of my friends, from which I can conclude that "adjusting" to the tone is not a myth.

Mascara Dinoplatz Escalator Mascara, Too Cool For School
Thermal touch is always convenient! After all, in order to wash it off, you just need warm water - no friction, no special means. Also, sweat, rain, sea and other "cataclysms" are not afraid of such means. But, unfortunately, not all thermal touches are able to paint over eyelashes beautifully. Dinoplatz Escalator Mascara from Too Cool For School is one of those that can! And it also has an interesting brush that can change: when you turn the base of the cap, the silicone villi disperse, and the applicator lengthens, and when you turn it in the other direction, everything returns to its place. It turns out that the mascara has two types of brushes at once. Each of the versions gives the effect of lengthening, but in the first case, the eyelashes are more natural and separated, and in the second - brighter.

BB cream Good Afternoon Honey Black Tea BB Cream SPF20, Skin Food
Asian Skin Food Good Afternoon Honey Black Tea BB Cream SPF20 once started my story with BB creams, and it was love! It has excellent disguise and durability. I would like to highlight its sweet honey aroma!
Price: 500 rub.
Highlighter Glow Crème, Erborian
It differs from all others in that it works as a day moisturizer and at the same time gives a slight highlighting effect. Therefore, if you like a minimum of layers in your makeup, then this is definitely your option!
Price: 3450 rub.
Concealer BB Eye Touche Parfaite 3-in-1, Erborian
The concealer has long been famous in the Russian beauty environment - for several years it has been included in the unofficial top of the best products. Despite the fact that it is available in just one shade, it surprisingly adapts to different tones and suits almost everyone! In addition, it behaves perfectly on the skin - it does not roll down and does not emphasize dryness, on the contrary - it perfectly moisturizes, and also copes well with masking bruises and dark circles under the eyes.
Price: 2990 rub.
Tint Glossy Blaster Tint, Too Cool For School
Usually lip tints, especially Korean ones, dry the lips, but not Too Cool For School Glossy Blaster Tint: a significant caring component has been added to its composition, so on the lips the products of this line feel like gloss balms. A remarkable palette rich for this kind of means - about 14 shades, among which you can find both the usual red and peach-nude.
Price: 944 rub.

Lip balm Dinoplatz Lip Balm Spilled Wine, Too Cool For School
For some unknown reason, it was Too Cool For School's dinosaur lip balm that I wanted to try the most. It happens - I want it, that's all! Something about this design really touches me. But when I got the coveted jar, and not only it, I found out that the quality of the brand's cosmetics is very good. And I like his whole mood - not too serious, but not too childish. Dinoplatz Lip Balm Spilled Wine softens lips very well and smells like grape lollipop. It looks almost black in color, but gives a very light cold pink berry hue on the lips. I like using the balm as a cream blush.
Price: 861 rub.
Lip Oil Rose Infusion Nude Infusion Lip Oil, Erborian
It is a nourishing light oil in small tubes that shines and nourishes the lips, and also reveals and enhances their natural tone. It looks as if you have a transparent gloss, and you have such smooth bright lips by nature.
Price: 1390 rub.
Tint Rouge Tint lip and cheek tint, Erborian
This is also a liquid product in a tube, but completely different. After application to the lips, it is quickly absorbed. They remain matte, as if they are completely empty, but they look more expressive. These products are especially convenient to use in cases where you do not want to correct your lip makeup after eating.
Price: 1390 rub.
Palette Dinoplatz Cinema City, Too Cool For School
It seems to me that there is an unspoken competition among Korean cosmetics manufacturers - who will make the product even more convenient, who will add even more "fishes" to it. That would be the case for European cosmetics manufacturers to adopt such zeal!
For example, I've never come across a facility like Too Cool For School Dinoplarz Cinema City before. It is a CC cream that evens out the complexion and gives a light glow. But it comes with three screw caps, and they have a concealer to match the cream, a pink natural cream highlighter and a coral blush. All of this is so convenient for a quick make-up outside the home, and also very cute in design!
And profitable, of course: for the price of a foundation, you can get a concealer, blush and a highlighter in a set.

Powder Gudetama Sebum Clear Pact, Holika Holika
I am a fan of the Holika Holika series with a lazy egg - I love when cosmetics entertain me, and the products themselves are very worthy. The line has recently appeared matting transparent powders - loose and compact. I want them at least for the cases!
Price: 790 rub.
Cushion Air Mesh, Dr. Jart +
At one time, it was Dr. Jart + who made America fall in love with BB creams, and then they showed the market cushions - and opened Pandora's box. The brand has several cushions, but the one that belongs to my adored Time Returning series is unfortunately a bit dark for me (I have extra-light, almost white skin). Therefore, my option is Air Mesh, which is completely invisible on the face, but at the same time gives it a vigorous and healthy look.
Price: 4655 RUB.
Lazy & Joy Jelly Dough Blusher, shade RD01 Cherry Jelly, Holika Holika x Gudetama
On the lid Gudetam, he is a lazy egg, is depicted with a cherry on his head, but this is a snag - the blush is not cherry, but even apricot, well, or the color of light cherry. They have a great texture (a soft cream that lies very nicely on the skin) and a bright, but not flashy shade.
Price: 950 rub.
Mist Mist Expert Red Moisture Gel Mist, VProve
The young Korean brand VProve, which specializes in multi-stage skin care, entered our market only this summer. Their Expert Gel Mist is aimed not so much at combating redness as at hydrating and improving overall skin quality - it can be used both as a toner and over makeup. It contains aloe vera, ginseng extract and astaxanthin, which is known as an anti-aging and moisturizing ingredient.
Price: 1590 rub.
CC cream Cicapair Re-Cover, Dr. Jart +
The Cicapair line consists of only two products - an excellent healing balm and this CC cream, which balances on the verge of care and toning. This is a green cream that turns beige when applied - quite versatile, although completely white-skinned it may seem darkish. The product, as always with Dr. Jart +, has an excellent composition - juice from the leaves of Asiatic Centella (in second place!), Niacinamide, oils and panthenol, so do not underestimate it and consider it just a foundation.
Price: 4780 rub.
BB cream Premium BB Beauty Balm SPF 45, Dr. Jart +
Premium BB bears the unofficial title of the best BB cream in the world - it has a very good caring composition, layering ability (medium coverage, but natural looking) and mineral filters in high concentration. Immediately after application, the cream is slightly noticeable, but it needs to be allowed 5-10 minutes to "shrink" - then it blends well with the skin. The only disadvantage of Premium BB is that even the lightest tone is labeled as light to medium and will be a little dark for very light-skinned people: it needs at least a little tan.
Price: 4670 rub.
BB cream BB Creme Au Ginseng, Erborian
Erborian has an excellent line of care for face and body, but the success of their BB cream is unlikely to be repeated. It seems that this remedy is adored by everyone or almost everyone who has tried it. The Korean-French brand made the perfect BB cream by magically sitting on two chairs. Erborian retained the characteristic of Korean products the ability to adapt to skin tone and made the cream light in a European way. The cream is easy to layering, it is excellent for skin care (many people like to apply it on the plane - the face is less dehydrated) and is completely invisible. There is a Light version congenial to the original - it is a micron thinner, and is better for those who like a very light coating.

Cushion Air Fit, A'pieu
This brand started the cushion movement, and at the moment it is the cheapest similar product on the market. Available in three textures. The first is classic, very shiny and a little wet. She merges with the skin - that's why I love her. There is also a very long-lasting matte XP texture (good for filming) and finally the middle in between is called the Korean word Pposong. So this cushion benefits from a variety of textures, low prices and lightest coverage. It is applied so simply that it will be convenient to use it even in a taxi.
Price: 580 rub.
Cushion Do Do Cat, Holika Holika
The special thing about this cushion is that you get the tone and strobe at once: a product with a very shiny texture. Immediately attracted by the cheerful design in the form of a cat's paw. When applied, it cools the face and tightens pores. Made with botanicals that soothe the skin. And the silicon dioxide in the composition helps to get rid of oily sheen.
Price: 2 190 rubles.
Cushion Cover King Powder Cushion, Nakeup Face
A find for those who want to mask acne and redness scars - it gives an unprecedented dense coverage (the Internet is full of shocking before and after photos). It has three shades that are very different from each other, and most girls will find the right tone here. For those who don't have any skin problems, this is a good economical option - you can apply it a little at a time and stretch one cushion for several months. Nice accessory: the packaging is rose gold (like the iPhone) in matte plastic.
Price: 2064 rub.
Blush Air Fit, A'pieu
The Korean brand A'pieu is also famous for its cushion blush. These are made on the basis of tea tree extract, aloe vera - they do not dry the skin, but rather moisturize it. Creamy in texture, easy to apply and creates a natural blush effect.
Price: 890 rub.
