SKIN FOOD SALMON DARK CIRCLE POWDER VS ELLANA MINERALS HUSH

 I got this at half off at the skin food store in manila at that mall that cuts down pine trees, the mega branch.  i've always been curious about this salmon line but by the time i got to skin food, half the store was gone with  the half off sale, which includes the salmon concealer (the cream form of this thing)
 awww it comes with a puff
 and voila they kinda have the same effect.  the skin food has slightly less coverage than ellana's but the powder of the skin food is more finely milled so it fills in the fine lines and pores a great deal more and smoother than the ellana hush.
 the salmon is almost this creamy pastel yellow.  it's a soft and smooth like very finely milled talc.
 it has pretty good coverage, too.
 and it's description.
 rolling on over to Ellana's Hush.  I don't think this one can be used on green veins.  but woah it nearly covered my recent scar from 2sox.

Aspect Skin Food Ellana Hush
Shade Match a little light on me a little dark on me

Break Out / harsh skin reaction nonenone
Pacakging the same as ellana tub with sifterthe same as skin food with sifter
Effect not cakey does not crepe up my liquid concealernot cakey does not crepe up my liquid concealer
AvailabilityIn most big malls i.e Trinoma / GloriettaOnline, Trinoma (Landmark somewhere there)
Pricehahaha, nuff saidquite cheap, not only is it worth the money but the quality most of their multipurpose minerals deserve to be a little price increase pa!


ADDENDUM:  NEITHER PRODUCTS GIVE ME THE REVERSE RACCOON EYES WITH FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY 

I have another Ellana mineral concealer the revive, that works as well as hush, and it's a tad closer in shade match to this salmon dark circle powder.  where as the awake one is almost like revive only cooler in tone.
Which do i recommend - well both work and both serve their purpose.  but for budget purposes, i would recommend y'all try ellana minerals before trying skin food.  much like how my journey began with makeup. i started with mineral makeup then jeee, thanks fuz and bubs, i found korean cosmetics LOL
Will I repurchase?- well the salmon dark circle powder made me more curious about the cream version of this.  but i'm still, as in STILL finishing this one kamusta naman buhay pa sya hahaha.  buti na lang mahaba ang shelf life ng brand na iyan LOL
that's all for now, tomorrow, hopefully i get to publish my this week in bb cream.  so watch out for that ;-)

i use ellana too, but one thing I discovered when using their concealer - you get too bright undereyes when camera has flash. but its affordable and the coverage is good

oh the reverse racoon eyes yeh, baka may bismuth yung mineral powders nila(?) like bare essentials (bare minerals) kaya reflective on flash photography? i took a photo with the flash accidentally on, no reverse racoon eyes naman with either powders ;-)
will add that to the table. thanks for the reminder.
yeh, ellana is a great alternative to those expensive mineral makeup brands that are only available online (because they are not here)

Marge said...

yeh, if you're fair like me, try the revive or awake na shade na concealer ng ellana. pero if you're nw30 or nc30 keri tong hush ;-)
