I’ve been intrigued by the Amore Pacific line since the early days of Beauty Professor. In fact, the Amore Pacfic Color Control Cushion (reviewed HERE) was the first cushion I ever encountered! Recently, I had the opportunity to try some new (to me) products from the line and this story is dedicated to my experience.
Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the Amore Pacific products in action as well as the Bottom Line…
In order to refamiliarize myself with the Amore Pacific line, I tried a combination of intense daily skincare, a formula for on the go revitalization and, of course, foundation…
In terms of skincare, the *Time Response Skin Renewal Creme can be used day and night to hydrate, tone and smooth the skin. Green tea is one of the star ingredients, fighting free radicals and infusing skin with anti-oxidants for powerful anti-aging benefits.
The creme feels silky and rich; that being said, I was surprised by how quickly it absorbed into the skin! A single pea-sized application leaves my canvas balanced and slightly dewy for the healthiest possible outcome as one heads into makeup application.
I will continue to test this product for the next few weeks and weigh back in following that period but in the meanwhile, the reviews I’ve found for this opulent formula are absolutely stellar, thereby further supporting its inherent efficacy.
This luxurious creme utilizes Advanced TIME REPSONSE Complex™ consisting of Green Tea Stem Cell, Green Tea Polysaccharide EGCG, and Green Tea Saponin to improve the appearance of radiant, firm and smooth skin.
To help achieve optimum anti-aging benefits, all powerful botanical ingredients in TIME RESPONSE Skin Renewal Creme are delivered to the skin through Microfluidics technology developed by AMOREPACIFIC Technology & Research Institute.
The product contains 100% first-harvested green tea water for enhanced moisturizing effects
Lush and hydrating…the Time Response Skin Renewal Creme.
Next-level refreshment…the Time Response Skin Renewal Mist.
To give skin a revitalizing boost throughout the day, I am smitten with the *Time Reponse Skin Renewal Mist. Fortified with a host of skin-soothing ingredients (see below) this refreshing formula can be misted on before and after makeup and anytime your canvas requires a pick-me-up. I will be throwing this in my travel bag this weekend while beach camping and also envision the mist fitting into my work week, especially during long lecturing days!
#204: Light-Medium for skin with golden undertones…apropos for N/NC 23-27 skin tones
#208: Medium for skin with golden undertones…apropos for N/NC 30-40 skin tones
In my experiece, this more recent release offers the convenience of a cushion compact with significantly better coverage (medium to full) than the original Amore Pacific Color Control Cushion (great for very dewy light-medium coverage).
The sleek beige compact is reflective of the minimalist Korean beauty aesthetic and I love the fact that the applicator sponge is nestled on its own level, securely apart from the cushion to avoid cross-contamination.
With a light scent–synonomous with the Amore Pacific line–and a creamy yet weightless ultra smooth texture, this formula glides onto skin with ease; I get nearly full coverage with a single application and am impressed by the natural matte second skin appearance and tremendous lasting power (8+ hours).
All in all, I have a major affinity for this foundation formula and know I’ll be reaching for it frequently this summer!
This essential element in your routine instantly primes and perfects with full, long-lasting coverage for skin that is flawlessly smooth and soft to the touch. The luxurious formula combines potent anti-aging ingredients and cushion technology for a tightened, polished appearance and a light, effortless application.
The anti-aging formula contains a powerful combination of potent botanicals and proprietary technology that improves skin visibly and over time:
Even-Layer Protective Technology ™ conceals pores and visibly evens out skin tone to prime skin.
Long-Lasting™ Complex maintains coverage even through hot and humid conditions.
Green Miracle T™ , AMOREPACIFIC’s patented ingredient, helps to restore skin and boosts natural suppleness and density for a youthful appearance.
Green Tea Polysaccharides, a powerful antioxidant, protects skin’s surface from environmental aggressors.
Broad Spectrum SPF 25 protects skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays that cause skin aging.
*Wayne Goss Air-Brush: Debuting on 6/29/16, this immaculately soft brush is designed to seamlessly buff bronzer, blush and highlighter into the skin for an airbrushed finish that looks just as good on film as it does in person. Wayne has a brilliant demonstration video on this brush that has inspired me to use this brush to take a bit more time in my application–ahh, the luxury of the process–I’ll be buffing like crazy from this point forth!
Gucci Sensuous Deep-Matte Lipstick in Spring Rose(also available at Gucci): I picked up this lip color after reading about its release but not being able to find any swatches online. Fortunately, the Dallas Gucci store has the entire beauty line and I made a beeline to it when visiting last week. Spring Rose is a creamy, opaque, neutral-toned pinky nude that I suspect will work well for a spectrum of skin tones. It quite possibly is the pefect nude. The formula is quite hydrating for a matte and I get immense staying power (4+ hours) with a single application. Scented much like the Gucci Audacious Lipstick (reviewed HERE), I find the fragrance (kind of like sweet vanilla meets chocolate) pleasing and not offputting. The lipstick case is weighty and well-crafted and I love that the bullet is slender, making it great for precise applications. All in all, I can’t wait to try other shades (namely Intriguing Rose and Exposure) in the Deep-Matte formula. Finally, because there don’t seem to be any swatches of this new formula online, I made sure to swatch them at the store…the result of my efforts is later in this story; hope you find the image helpful!
You look stunningly lovely as is the norm. I have been using AP Time Response moisturizer, eye cream, along with TNS Essential Serum for over two years now. For a 'change-up' I have used a few other medical grade products and Revive. Oddly this week I have just placed an order with Holt Renfrew here in Toronto, to top me up with the incredible AP line once again. I don't think the new version of the foundation is in TO yet, but I shall find out. I was not enamoured with their first go as colors were predominately yellow-hued, does not look that way on you this go-around. The feel of that cream is undeniably devine, the eye cream, for me, is the best I have ever encountered. I do enjoy the TNS serum under the moisturizer both day and night as opposed to the Renewal Serum, just my personal preference.
Off topic, I did purchase the Surratt foundation after your introduction and have to say it is superb…..the packaging is 'off' IMHO, but the foundation is just the best, a thank you for that.
Have a super week!
