16 Brand

I am a sucker for new things that appear on the Mecca website, so when I noticed the 16 Brand online with it's adorable packaging, I had to have it! 

16 Brand is a K Beauty Brand, a sister brand to Chosungah22 (also now available on Mecca!). I was excited by their fun packaging and affordable prices. 16 Brand seems to a little younger than Chosungah22, but they are both fun and have inivative ideas. I picked up a couple of different products from 16 Brand to try and thought I'd share how I'm finding them in case anyone was wondering what they were like. 





Guroom Foundation

I don't know where the name comes from, but this little foundation, along with the primers, look absolutely adorable in their little jars. Not only is the packaging great, but the foundation as well!

" Say goodbye to bumps, freckles, redness and blemishes without looking or feeling heavy with this complexion-perfecting foundation. "

It does all of that! I wasn't sure what this foundation would be like, I didn't really have the highest expectations, but I was really impressed. It is quite thick, and takes a bit of effort to blend into the skin. But it gives an almost flawless, matte finish to your skin. It's amazing! It lasts all day, but I have noticed that it does look a tiny bit cakey around my lip and chin at the end of the day, but I notice that a bit with all of the foundations I wear, so I'm don't have too much of an issue with it. 



Guroom Mint Cream

'Hydrate, prime and correct redness and discolouration in one for a plump, even complexion' - this is what the Guroom Mint Cream claims to do. I have been using it prior to applying my Guroom Foundation and it was been working really well. Unlike some green coloured primers that make you look like an ogre, this one has a subtle colour that corrects and evens your skin tone. It is thick, and I probably wouldn't recommend it to drier skin types, but it is perfect for oily skin. It creates the perfect canvas and keeps my foundation lasting all day.



Lip & Eye Remover

An oil and water formulation is the perfect way to remove eye make up, in my opinion anyway. While there are some drugstore brands that are a few dollars cheaper, this has quickly become my favourite. It doesn't leave an oily residue on the skin after you remove your eye make up and uses both rosemary leaf extract and camomile to soothe and calm the skin as well. While it seems like a similar formulation to the drugstore brands I use, this one is probably my favourite eye make up remover that I have used! And for $15 it isn't ridiculously priced!

Moist Puff

I needed another $8 to get my free shipping, so I chucked this in my cart to try out. I thought it was going to be one sponge, but to my surprise the tube contained five small, square sponges. They are very soft and squishy and do get a little bit bigger when you wet them. I find the sides are really good for blending foundation on the larger surfaces of my face - i.e. my cheeks, chin and forehead. For more intricate areas - like under my eyes and around my nose - a typical beauty blender shape gives you a better point to blend in around those areas. It blends well, but I wouldn't repurchase it over a beauty blender.
