The latest Korean natural beauty makeup trend!
I'm back with another 1028 Visual Therapy post, this time round of their super popular CC DATION that's flying off the shelves right now as I type this.
What's a CC Dation?
You know how Koreans always have this perfect even skintone that looks like they DON'T have any makeup on?
Inspired by this Korean natural nude makeup trend, 1028 has created the world's first CC Dation which is essentially a combination of both CC Cream and foundation.
More than just makeup, this CC Dation actually comes with skincare essences that reduce the appearance of redness and gives your face an instant illuminating glow!
This revolutionary CC Dation comes in two formulas - Hydrating and Whitening!
I was sent the Hydrating formula to try out!
This is my current morning routine:
As you can see, I'm still using their deep cleansing foam and UV Whitening sunscreen that I had previously reviewed!
In fact the whitening UV sunscreen is always in my handbag (into my second bottle now!) and I apply it all over my arms & legs when I head out for lunch, and on my hands and fingers when I do my monthly gel manicures before I stick them into the UV box :grin:
I usually skip sunblock application for my face cause the CC Dation already provides SPF25 PA++ which is good enough for me... unless I'm going to be out in the sun a lot then I'll also layer on sunscreen before the CC Dation.
Both formulas come in two shades - light beige and nude beige. This is how light beige looks like on my skin.
To be honest, I was a little surprised at how watery it is - I was expecting a thicker consistency as with most foundations.
All blended in (I used my fingers!) and I love how it's a perfect match for my skin tone.
This is how it looks like on my face:
(I used it here with the oil-control powder pictured above.)
Because it's so lightweight, I was expecting very minimal coverage, however the coverage was superb! It could cover my acne marks and I had this smooth, poreless, matte look that stayed on the whole day.
Here's how the other shades look like:
By the way, fun fact! 1028 Visual Therapy's named as such because their makeup products all contain skincare benefits that you can see. For example, this CC Dation contains skincare ingredients Ceramide, Hyaluronic Acid, Honey and Vitamin E to deeply hydrate and nourish the skin, while the Avocado Oil, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Moringa Oil and Licorice Extract help to calm and repair the skin.
This Taiwanese cult brand is currently the top 3 selling brands in Taiwan and has been featured on many popular TV programmes as such 女人我最大，大学生了没， 一代女王， 流行新势力.
In fact when I was in Taipei recently, I tried to take a photo of their makeup counter at Watsons but it was ALWAYS crowded... even when I went at 1130pm at night :flushed:
1028 Singapore can be found at SaSa, Watsons, John Little and Sosoon!
