I actually wanted to review the Cathy Cat Glow Moisture Cake for some time now but just couldn't decide really what it is lol.
And just a week ago I got the Glow Moisture Pact so I thought of packing both items in 1 review.
The Glow Moisture series seems to be the newest hit from Cathy Cat as their items are listed on their website as Best Sellers...
-Glow Moisture Cake:
I really couldn't determine what this is exactly. It's a solid cream in a compact foundation case. You get the refill in a sealed plastic bag and just insert it in the compact. The refill has an airtight cover so it won't dry out.
I *believe* it's supposed to be a brightening compact foundation. It comes in 2 color (#21 and #23) of which I chose the lighter one hoping it would be light enough. Man, it is SUPER pale (very unlike Cathy Cat's other foundations in #21 which are way too dark for me) and has nearly zero coverage. On the other hand it gives the most beautiful soft pearly glow and has a great brightening effect. So for me it's more of a compact highlighter to be applied on top of my BB cream or foundation for that extra glow.
I just spread it evenly with the sponge provided (and there is a 2nd one in the package, too).
As I said above it doesn't really cover a lot and the color is very very pale but since it's sheer it blends nicely over my BB Cream or foundation.
It has a creamy texture but it's not greasy or heavy so it feels very comfortable to wear.
It is rather pricey for Cathy Cat at about 22000 Won.
-Glow Moisture Pact:
This is a good addition to the Glow Moisture Cake or to wear on top of any other BB Cream or foundation.
This is a compact powder with a glowy finish created through very fine shimmer. It comes in one color only which is a light neutral beige. It gives sheer-medium coverage and doesn't cake up on my skin.
The case comes with 2 puffs so you can toss one after a while.
The only thing I dislike about the powder is the strong perfume. But it vanishes after 10 mins or so so I can live with it.
To my greatest delight my Glow Moisture Pact came as a Special Set with a load of pretty extras (it wasn't advertised as set on Gmarket, just the powder).
I paid around 17000 Won and got deluxe sample tubes of their Moisture In Day Base (green color) and Foundation (both oil-free, SPF10), a deluxe mini tube of their Dream Rouge Gloss in #158 (a pretty very opaque muted pink) and a sampler of 5 Dream Rouge lipsticks in pretty pinks and berries.
I ordered both items from miincos on Gmarket if I remember correctly.
