Celefit The Bella Collection Eyeshadow palette

It's not easy to blow my mind with makeup. Or at least that's what I thought. The beauty market is full of products that look like a copy of each other - not to mention that some brands only make dupes of the products. But some companies are not looking back on other brands, and they do the best job they can do. A couple of weeks ago I introduced you to Celefit The Bella Collection Eyeshadow palette, this time I'll show you two new versions of Celefit The Bella Collection Eyeshadow palette and Celefit Still Cover Cushion Pact SPF 50+ PA++++.

About the brand

I'm aware that for many people Celefit is a new brand, but I'll do my best to introduce you to this brand. Celefit is a beauty brand which I'm sure the majority of you will associate with makeup even if the company has a skincare line too. Still, makeup is the central part of Celefit's range. I couldn't find information on Celefit's past, but according to the information from the official website, the brand started to gain popularity in 2017. In 2019 Celefit made The Bella Collection Palette in collaboration with Korean beauty creator 벨라 Bella. It was a clever move, lots of Western brands collaborate with content creators to help with designing new products. I think it's important because people like makeup artists, creators and people working in the beauty industry as sellers or shop assistants know the best what people are searching for. If you would ask me about my experience as an esthetician intern, then bubble masks are the most popular product among my clients. Back to Celefit, right now The Bella Collection has three different palettes and three different blushes. The series was even at JTBC4 program called 뷰티룸 (beauty room), the fragment with Celefit you can see below (around 08:00).


I need to add that Celefit Muse is Suhyun - she is a Miss Korea 2018 pageant contestant where she was a second runner-up, and Miss Earth Korea 2018.

Celefit The Belle Palette Episode #01

The review of Celefit The Belle Palette Episode #01 is already on Kherblog, but I want to notice some things. Every palette means different Episode which I like to compare to season. The Belle Palette Episode #01 give me summer or even spring feel with peach tones. The rose gold packaging and box design keep stealing my heart to this day, and since then, I can't stop using this palette. I had a moment when I was trying to use different brands, but it just didn't work. Peach tones fit my skin the best. Celefit The Belle Palette Episode #01 contains nine shades. Matte shades: Sophia, Lode, Prismo & Dolce Shimmery shades: Rosa, Vino & Aurora Glitter shades: Bianco & Anima Nothing has changed, since the first try, I might only like this palette more than before.

This time I found information on ingredients (from Hwahae app). I had no allergic reactions to the palette, but I'm aware that some people have sensitive eyes and you might prefer to check the ingredients.

Celefit The Belle Palette Episode #02

Episode #02 reminds me of autumn. I got lots of questions related to this palette on Instagram. It's not strange because these shades fit the standard all around the world. Nude and brown shades are the safest options in makeup. Some people want to shine while others prefer to play it safe. This option mixes both of them. And I'm going to surprise you because I said that Episode #01 fits cold skin in the previous post. What about Episode #02? It fits cold and warm tones, but some shades are going to be risky for cold skin. The packaging is not rose pink, but copper and the box still has this cosmo/magic vibe which reminds me of Hotel Del Luna, 2018 tvN drama which I highly recommend.

Matte shades: Giallo, Avvio, Cielo & Rosso
Shimmery shades: Luce, Alberto & Notte 
Glitter shades: Elfo & Stella

The matte, shimmery and glittery shades ratio is the same as in Episode #01. We will go through all the shades one by one together, because similar to Episode #01 - all names are in the Italian language.

Celefit The Bella Collection Eyeshadow palette

Giallo
This Italian word means 'yellow', but I swear it's more like a sand shade. Giallo also refers to cheap mystery novels and Italian thrillers/horrors with a dose of mystery. Neither of these translates to the Celefit eyeshadow named Giallo. It's more like a beige sand shade.

Elfo
Can you guess the meaning? Elfo means nothing else than an elf. It's a gold glitter shade which I like to use to make some parts of my eyes look bigger - if your eyes are close to the nose add this shade onto inner corners of the eyes, it'll create visual space between nose and eye.

Celefit The Bella Collection Eyeshadow palette

Avvio
The word Avvio stands for beginning and start. Avvio is a deeper version of Giallo, on my skin, it looks like a warm light brown shade.

Cielo
This shade might not look like a sky or heaven, but that's the meaning of the name. From interesting facts about this word, I can share that Settimo Cielo means seventh heaven or cloud nine. It's a warmer and deeper shade than Avvio which I don't even know how I should compare it.

Rosso
Rosso means red, but the shade is a warm brown shade with lots of red pigment. It reminds me of a fox or brick.

Luce
Word Luce means light, but "lucere" means to shine and I guess this second version fits this shade best because it's a shinny deep shade, a bit colder than Rosso.

Celefit The Bella Collection Eyeshadow palette


Alberto
I guess you figured out the meaning of this name before - Alberto is just a male name. It's a pretty, cold, but shiny shade, it reminds me of toasted almonds.

Stella
Sadly, Stella is not a female name, but it means star in Italian. That's a clever name for this colour because it looks like a crushed star - gold glitter shade in a warm tone. Ideal for accents in your daily makeup.

Celefit The Bella Collection Eyeshadow palette

Notte
The deepest brown shade couldn't have any other name than Notte, a night. It's the darkest shade in a palette with shiny particles. I have mixed feelings related to this colour because I love it but at the same time my skin tone doesn't look good in deep brown shades, and it's not surprising - cold skin looks better in different shades of black and grey. Brown shades fit warmer skin tones better because it has shiny, gold particles. Still, I'm obsessed with this shade, I can't deny it's pure beauty! You can use Notte as an eyeliner.

Celefit The Bella Collection Palette Episode #02 - Ingredients

Talc, Mica, Magnesium/Potassium/Silicon/Fluoride/Hydroxide/Oxide, Nylon-12, Boron Nitride, CI 77492, Titanium Dioxide, CI 77491, Magnesium Stearate, Magnesium Myristate, Hexyl Laurate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Diisostearyl Malate, Dimethicone, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Dipentaerythrityl Hexahydroxystearate/Hexastearate/Hexarosinate, CI 77499, Ultramarines, CI 19140, Isostearyl Neopentanoate, Phenoxyethanol, Hydrogen Dimethicone, Methicone, Glyceryl Caprylate, Triethoxycaprylylsilane

At first, I didn't think this palette fits my eye because I've decided to put Notte on my eyelid. It's a pretty evening colour, it'll go well in smokey eye makeup on warm skin tone, but I forgot how bad my eye look with different shades of brown. My first attempt to use it was a mistake, but I didn't give up and make it work! aGwerblog told me once to put cream eyeliner on the waterline, I didn't test this trick yet, but it should make the warmer colours look better with cold skin.

The way The Bella Collection Palette Episode #02 blends melts my heart. It's a palette which even a novice can use because it's so easy to blend. I use it in two different ways - with eye primer and without eye primer. The difference is small in my opinion, but I feel like primer is an ideal option when you have some celebrations in your plan and you want your eye makeup to stay on eyelid longer. Each pan in this palette is large, last time I said to you that this palette reminds me of Huda Beauty and it still does. Majority of brands go for similar sets of pans 3x3, but usually, eyeshadows are smaller. This palette has 17g of eyeshadows and that's a large amount. If you like to keep your makeup simple but add some craziness (in a positive way) to your makeup - this palette is an option for you.

Celefit The Bella Collection Palette Episode #03

Episode #03 reminds me of winter because the shades fit winter skin type well, so if your skin has a cool tone, you might love this palette. It has a monochromic vibe, all shades have lilac and grey colours. This palette is something different, even if I saw some brands trying lilac or grey monochrome palettes, The Bella Collection Palette Episode #03 still fits the collection, and it's probably the safest choice if you're a novice and you're not sure how to apply makeup. Shades are subtle, but you can make a nice smokey eye makeup with them too. Matte, Shimmery and Glitter ratio here is different than in previous episodes.

Matte shades: Nebbia, Ora, Fleur, Gaia, Viola, Mercury, Charbon 
Shimmery shades: Unicorn 
Glitter shades: Prism

Celefit The Bella Collection Eyeshadow palette

Nebbia
Word Nebbia stands for mist and it's a good name choice because this eyeshadow is a light white/creamy base shade. It looks like a mist on the lid.

Prism
Is Prism an Italian word? Not really, Prism in Italian is Prismo, but no matter which version you prefer, the name fits this shade a lot. It reminds me of Nabla Secret Palette (by the way, Nabla is an Italian brand) and shade Play Hard. It's a glitter white shade, it looks awesome when you use it on the inner corner of the eye or when you apply it on the entire movable part of your eyelid. A small trick - I feel like you can use it on a black base to get a more intensive effect, it should be more visible.

Ora
Ora means hour, but we can also translate it as now or at the moment. My first thought after I saw this name was a Latin phrase 'Ora et labora' - pray and work. It's a delicate beige colour mixed with a bit of grey, it reminds me of smoke.

Celefit The Bella Collection Eyeshadow palette

Fleur
Which language are you thinking about when you see the word 'Fleur'? I think about French, because word Fleur doesn't exist in the Italian language, but there's a huge connection between French and Italian - not a language, but literature. The Italian language is similar to Latin, some universities can't imagine studying Italian without adding a couple of hours of Latin language. Fleur in French means flowers, this name stands for delicate pastel lilac shade.

Unicorn
Shimmer shade in Episode #03 has the same issue as glitter. The name isn't Italian, because it's not Unicorno or Liocorno. It's like a metallic lilac shade. I like how it looks on the eyelid, it's very similar to glitter shade.

Celefit The Bella Collection Eyeshadow palette

Gaia
Gaia is a name that exists in the Italian language. Although Gaia comes from Greek mythology as a goddess and Mother Earth, still the name is the same. Its shade is a darker version of Ora, it looks a bit like a coffee mixed with smoke.

Viola
It's a female name which used to be popular in other countries too. It kinda reminds me of a musical instrument, but at the same time of a light purple colour - just like the colour of this shade.

Celefit The Bella Collection Eyeshadow palette

Mercury
It's not Mercurio, but in English Mercury can be a planet, chemical element or a Roman god. Mercury is a god of finance and merchant. it's a lighter shade than Gaia, it's a bit warmer and it reminds me of Cappucino.

Charbon
Sounds similar to carbon? This shade is not pure black colour, but a dark brown shade mixed with grey.

Celefit The Bella Collection Eyeshadow palette

The colours in Episode #03 aren't standard. According to my friends, these colours are a bit risky and not everyone will enjoy them, but I believe that there's a huge number of people with cool skin tones who will love this palette just like I do. It's a safe option if you're novice because the shades are so easy to blend. There's no black eyeshadow and usually, black eyeshadow is hard to blend but also hard to get a deep colour without putting eyeshadow all over your face. This palette doesn't make me look tired and the shimmery and glitter shades fit other palettes too.

Celefit The Bella Collection Palette #01, #02 and #03 - Price

Each palette from Celefit The Bella Collection Palettes costs ₩36,000 each in the regular price - around $36. This price comes from Celefit official website, but Celefit has an English website too and the price on Celefit.com is $33.56 for each palette.

Celefit Still Cover Cushion Pact SPF 50+/PA++++

Celefit Still Cover Cushion Pact SPF 50+/PA++++

Cushions are not as popular in Europe and the US as in South Korea. I've been using different cushions for one year straight because this option feels the most comfortable for me. Cushions exist in different forms, microfoam cushions are the most popular form, but there are also sun cushions.

Celefit Still Cover Cushion Pact SPF 50+/PA++++ - Packaging & Puff

The packaging reminds me of steel, it's a very elegant packaging with the pointy puff inside. Cushion case has a magnet so the opening and closing the cushion is an easy action. Inside the case, you can find a mirror and a tiny plate with a puff. The puff makes it easier to apply formula near the nose area. This cushion has a refill option and it is recommended for all skin types. The puff with the formula is a mochi puff which according to the brand keeps the hygiene of product on higher standards. Still, you should clean the applicator after every use - I recommend you using isopropyl alcohol after washing your brushes and puffs to kill the bacteria.

Celefit Still Cover Cushion Pact SPF 50+/PA++++

Celefit Still Cover Cushion Pact SPF 50+/PA++++ - Colour, Texture and Coverage

Celefit Still Cover Cushion is available in 3 different shades - #21, #23 and #25. Usually, cushions come in two shades #21 and #23, but Celefit gave us a bigger choice. I'm aware that for some people shade #25 will still be too light, but we have to remember that Celefit is a young brand and still, Celefit's main market is South Korea. Usually, markets outside the US have a limited number of shades for each country or region. Majority of makeup brands stick to 2 shades since #21 and #23 are the most popular shades. I always go for the lightest shade available and there are differences between brands but Celefit Still Cover Cushion #21 is very light and it has a full coverage! If you've got any redness or post-acne scars, pigmentation then you should love the coverage. The only flaw with full coverage is that you need to moisturize your skin well because even if the cushion itself makes your skin looking healthy, it might make some wrinkles more visible. Especially if you plan to apply cushion on the eye area, I would recommend you to go for Celefit Upderm Concealer or Celefit Toxin Concealer - concealer formulas are lighter than cushion and eye area is more sensitive to dryness. The cushion gives the skin wet aka chok chok look and I'm aware that some people don't like this, but I love it - it gives the skin a healthy, bright look.

Celefit Still Cover Cushion Pact SPF 50+/PA++++

Celefit Still Cover Cushion Pact SPF 50+/PA++++ #21- Ingredients

Water, Titanium Dioxide, Cyclopentasiloxane, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Cyclohexasiloxane, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Diphenylsiloxy Phenyl Trimethicone, Niacinamide, Octocrylene, PEG-30 Dipolyhydroxystearate, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Zinc Oxide, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, PEG-10 Dimethicone, CI 77492, Butylene Glycol, Acrylate/Stearyl Acrylate/Dimethicone Methacrylate Copolymer/ Sodium Chloride, Dimethicone, Caprylic/Capric Glycerides, Acrylates/Dimethicone Copolymer, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, CI 77491, Aluminum Hydroxide, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, CI 77499, Adenosine, Squalane, 1,2-Hexanediol, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Extract, Propolis Extract, Glycosyl Trehalose, Silica, Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate, r-Spider Polypeptide-1, Gellan Gum, Madecassoside, Limonene

I want to go through some ingredients this time. The scent of this cushion is something I've never seen before in any cushion or foundation. You can smell Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil and Limonene. I couldn't find a lot about r-Spider Polypeptide-1, but it turns out to be spider silk and according to the skincare brands this ingredient prevents water loss. I'm happy that Celefit decided to use Adenosine, Squalane, Tea Tree Leaf Extract and Madecassoside - my skin loves these ingredients and I hope your skin will enjoy them too.

Celefit Still Cover Cushion Pact SPF 50+/PA++++ - my experience

I've been using this cushion for some time now and I feel like I can admit, it's one of my favourite cushions. The packaging has ideal size, you can easily put it in your bag and take it everywhere with you. The application process is easy, the best way to apply this cushion is to start from the forehead and end application on your chin and neck. The coverage blew my mind, just like the scent of the formula. I took a photo which I hope will be visible, I'm currently doing an acid treatment so my skin is red right now, you can see how well this cushion covers the redness and pigmentation. It stays on your skin for a long time - I use it with Urban Decay fixer to make it stay even longer - about 8 to 10 hours. It acts normally on my combo skin, but as I said before - don't use it on your lower eyelid because the formula might be too heavy for this area and you might see some wrinkles that occur due to your eye movement (and it's nothing bad, we all have this issue) will be more visible. I would prefer to use this cushion for special occasions and I guess I'll get a few refills for my upcoming internship and some family events since as an esthetician during an internship I have to look professional, but I barely have time to eat or retouch my makeup. With Celefit cushion I've never done a retouch yet. One of the most important things for some of you, how does it work with sunscreens? I've tested it with Purito sunscreen (chemical sunscreen) and Axis-y sunscreen (mineral sunscreen) and it didn't start to cake or migrate, but we have to remember that each sunscreen (live every makeup and skincare product) acts differently on different skins. I've got positive experience with this cushion and I hope you'll also have a positive experience with it.

Celefit Still Cover Cushion Pact SPF 50+/PA++++

Celefit Still Cover Cushion Pact SPF 50+/PA++++ - Price

Celefit Still Cover Cushion Pact SPF 50+/PA++++ costs ₩38,000 in regular price (around $38). The refill costs ₩18,500 which is around 18$. Refill has a 10g of product. These prices are from official Celefit website, I couldn't find this product on Celefit.com.
