A:Concept Make Your Concept Box - Black Set

By Grace Myu - February 10, 2018

Remember awhile back I mentioned that Korean beauties focus only two things in their makeup purse - BB Cushion & Lipsticks?
Well, guess what?

I have found a
that you can bring around easily without taking up much bag space!

Presenting you,

This is definitely a dream to carry around because of how compact it is!
Also, this product is refillable - which means you can switch your lipstick and/or cushion whenever you fancy!

Basically, the BB Cushion connector is where you (sneakily) keep your lipstick!

This set comes with -
1 x BB Cushion cover
2 x BB Cushion (I got shade 23)
2 x lipsticks

The lipsticks comes in two shades: Coral & Red Orange.
The Coral shade has a high shine finish while the Red Orange has a matte velvet finish.

According to The Butterfly Project,
"Girl's Generation's Taeyeon shares that her No.1 Makeup Secret is using A:Concept's all-in-one brightening cushion compact (whitening, anti-wrinkle, UV protection) and lipstick. Even Girl's Generation's makeup artist, Seo Ok choose A:Concept's brightening cushion."


This cushion claims to have whitening, anti-wrinkle and UV protection thus it really is "all-in-one".
I used the shade in 23 as that is closer to my skintone.

As you can see in the pics above, I only used the product one side of my face (the side with nose piercing) to demonstrate the Before and After.

The coverage is medium and it diminishes the appearance of enlarged pores (as you can see on my nose). It does give a slight brightening effect too.

After a while, if you do not pat your face with finishing powder, the coverage somewhat disappears. Sad but true.
Thus I encourage you to use this with powder to ensure it lasts all day.


This RED lipstick is a bright warm undertone and is perfect for a bold look.
I personally like the finishing and it does last longer than the other lip colour because of its matte velvet finishing. It is comfortable to apply and wear it on a daily basis.


This crayon texture lip/cheek duo has a glossy finish and it is safe to apply on cheeks and lips! This is a great alternative for days you just wanna keep it simple.


As you can see from the pics, I think I look pretty good with the Red lipstick! I love wearing that lipstick on days when I just need a splash of colour for an instant perk-me-up!

If you are looking for a BB cushion that doubles up as a lip/cheek product, PLEASE CONSIDER THIS SET! This is great even as a gift 🎁 for a girlfriend, sister or mother - especially one who is always on the go!

This set is originally sold on Althea Korea's website however now it is no longer available on the site.
Nevertheless, you can still search for it on A:Concept's official website and it retails for USD 46.27.
