Sephora Haul!

Hello everyone!

Today I’m going to share with you some of the things I bought from Sephora quite a while back. I debated whether or not to post about it but since I had already taken the photos I figured it was worth talking about!

The reason I made this order was because there was a great sample bag as a gift with purchase. I had some things I was already planning on buying at some point, so this sample bag made the decision for me, haha.

So the first two items I bought were two more Chosungah22 lip tints! I mentioned several times how much I love the pink one (Chiffon), but I had been wanting to try two other shades, Cashmere, which is red, and Velvet, which is burgundy.

I already love these and the darker colors are perfect for fall!

The next item I bought was actually an impulse buy, since I saw that it was on sale. It’s the Ciate London X Olivia Polermo The Smouldering Eye Palette. It has 9 different shadows and they are definitely on the darker, smokier side, as the name implies.

It’s a bit different than what I usually go for, but I’ve used some of the shades already and the texture is just amazing! I was so impressed by the formula of these that I may consider trying more of Ciate’s shadows in the future.

Since It was an online order, I also picked 3 samples to go with my purchase!

I got sachets of one of Lancome’s toners, a Josie Maran moisturizer, and a sample of Givenchy Le Rouge lipstick.

I also spent 100 of my points to get a small tube of Dr. Jart+’s Ceramidin cream, which I’ve heard really good things about.

I haven’t used it yet though!

And last but not least, here are the contents of the sample bag!

My particular bag came with:

Dr. Brandt’s Microdermabrasion age defying exfoliator, The Estee Edit’s lipstick samples, a mini size of Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara, Atelier Cologne in Mandarine Glaciale, sachets of Fresh’s Soy Face Cleanser, Rose Face Mask, and Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream, a small sized tub of Belif’s The True Cream- Aqua Bomb, Origin’s VitaZing moisturizer, and a tiny Beauty Blendercleanser Solid.

I have to say, I was most excited for the Belif cream and the beauty blendercleanser! But it will also be nice to try some of Fresh’s skincare too, since I’ve only ever tried their lipbalms.

So that’s it for this Sephora Haul guys! What have you been buying lately? Let me know in the comments!

January 2016 Favorites

Hello everyone!

Can you believe that the first month of the new year is already over?? It went by so fast!

I have a few things that I really enjoyed using over the past month that weren’t the same-old-same-old stuff I always talk about in my favorites, so that’s what I’m going to share with you today!

Beauty Favorites:

January 2016 Favs

First up is the Soyoung concealer that I got in my edition of the K-Drama Memebox.

Soyoung Concealer 2Soyoung Concealer 3

I have the shade #01 Lovely Beige and I have to say, this is the perfect color for my skin right now! It can be hard to find base makeup that isn’t too dark for me (because I’m super pale, lol) and doesn’t also have a funky undertone, but this is just perfect! It also has pretty good pigmentation and is about medium coverage.

I’m not sure if I’m going to try other concealers when I run out of this, because I really really enjoy this formula. But we’ll see when that happens, hahaha.

My next favorite is also from the K-Drama Makeup Memebox, and it’s the Memepuffs (set of five).

Meme Puffs

I finally got to try these kinds of airpuffs, and let me tell you, I’m so glad I had the opportunity to try them! These make blending in both foundation and concealer so easy! I don’t want to use anything else any more, haha.

The only thing I don’t like is how hard they are to clean, but that’s something I’m willing to live with, hahaha.

My third favorite is actually two I use together! It’s the Sephora Rouge Infusion Lip Tint in The Neutrals: #19 Peony and the Holika Holika Heartfull Glossy Lipstick in PK122 Humming Pink.

I use these two products to do a slight gradient lip effect that I’ve been really loving lately! This month I wore this combo at least 3-4 times a week cause I love it so much! In fact, I’m probably going to wear it a lot this month too, haha.

How it looks on me! Told you I was pale, lol.

Non-Beauty Favorites:

So I’ve been really into Japanese fashion magazines for a long time (my favorites are Non-no and Ray!), and I figured out that I can actually buy them off of Amazon Japan!

Amazon Japan Box 1Amazon Japan box 2

Because of this, I’ve been doing a lot of shopping, haha. I only have bought and received magazines from amazon directly (I have one order from a third party seller that ships internationally and it will come within the next week or so), so I haven’t used any forwarding services yet.

But I digress! I am so happy with the orders I bought that were fulfilled by Amazon! They come so fast and are packaged very well, so I know I will order from them in the future!

My last favorite for this month is the cell phone game Neko Atsume: Kitty Collector!

Neko Atsume 1Neko Atsume 2Neko Atsume 3Neko Atsume 4

Omg guys, this game is just amazing. You leave out food and “goodies” and different cats will come and visit! You can take pictures of them and when they leave, they give you fish so that you can buy more goodies! My sister told me about this game, and now I’m absolutely addicted, lol. It’s available for both iPhone and Android, so now everyone can get addicted like me! Hahaha!

So that’s it for my favorites this month! What are some things you have been loving? Let me know in the comments!

2015 Favorites!

Hello everyone!

My goodness time has just flown by! I can’t believe it’s already 2016! Anyone make any New Years resolutions? Mine is to blog more often!

Speaking of blogging more often, today I’m going to share with you some of my favorite products for the whole year of 2015. I really tried to limit how much I picked, cause otherwise I would be here all day! A lot of these will be familiar to you guys already, but I feel like it’s worth bringing up why I like them so much, haha.

On to the favorites!

November 2015 Favorites!

Hey guys!

I know I didn’t share an October favorites post with you, but honestly I didn’t really have anything new or surprising to show you guys, so I didn’t bother, haha. But I do have some interesting favorites from this past month, so let’s get on with my November favorites!

Beauty Favorites:

November 2015 Favorites

My first favorite is the original Pony X Memebox Shine Easy Glam palette!

Pony Shine Easy Glam 1 open

If you read my review, then this probably is not a surprise, but I have been using this palette a ton lately! The shadows are just so easy to work with, and even when I use other palettes, I come back to this one just for the matte colors for my crease, such as the shadow called Easy Shade. They really are fantastic and Memebox has sales very frequently, so if you are interested I really recommend this!

My next favorite is also an eyeshadow palette I picked up this month, and it’s the Make Up For Ever Artist Palette in number 1!

MUFE Artist Palette 3

This is the first time I’ve ever tried MUFE’s eyeshadows, and I have to say, I’m impressed! These shadows are so pigmented and beautiful! I also find that they are really easy to blend, so that makes them even easier to use! I will say that some shades have quite a bit of fallout, but I feel like it’s worth it cause they’re all so pretty!

Another one of my favorites is the Chosungah 22 Dual Lip Tint & Gloss in the shade Chiffon.

Chosungah 22 Dual Tint & Gloss Chiffon 2

I’m so glad that I finally tried these out!! The tint is such a beautiful hot pink color and the gloss is a sheer peachy-pink that looks very pretty on top of the tint! I really love how bright the tint is, as sometimes tints look more intense in the tube than they really are on the lips, so I’m really glad this one is just as bright!

My last beauty favorite has been the Memebox I’m Lip Tint Balm in #CR008 Lovely Coral.

I'm Lip Tint Balm #CR008

This shade is so pretty! And it seems as if they’ve improved the formula on these, as this has a lot more pigment than the original version. They also smell a lot like the Pony X Memebox lipsticks, which is awesome! I really love to bring this with me in my bag, as it’s easy to apply even without a mirror and looks good with just about any eye look!

Non-Beauty Favorites:

My first non-beauty favorite is actually a book that’s been going around online a lot the past few months, and it’s called The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, by Marie Kondo.

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up- Marie Kondo

This book has really inspired me! I have been wanting to go through all of my things to declutter my room for a long time now, and I reading this book gave me the motivation to really make decluttering a priority! Once I have my things in order, I feel like I will have a little less stress in my life, haha.

My last favorite for this month is Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer (again, haha)!

HHD 1

I know I’ve mentioned this already, but this game is just so awesome! I love the Animal Crossing series, and having a game where I can just decorate everything is just so much fun! Once I start playing, it’s so difficult to stop! I’m already looking forward to playing this weekend!

So that’s it for my favorites this month! What have you been loving? Let me know in the comments!

 

Sephora Fall 2015 VIB Haul

Hey guys!

I know this is a little late, but I wanted to show you guys the stuff I picked up during the Sephora VIB sale this year!

Sephora VIB Haul F15

I didn’t go too overboard (in my opinion), but I did buy some things I’ve had my eye on for a long time.

Origins Modern Friction

So the first thing I got is a tube of the Origins Modern Friction exfoliant. I had a small sample tube that I used up before and loved, but since it’s so expensive I decided to wait for the sale. So glad to have this back in my life, hahaha.

Tony Moly Coconut Sheet Mask

The next thing I got is also another skincare item, and it’s a two pack of the Tony Moly Coconut Face Mask Sheet. Since my skin is super dry, I love trying new hydrating sheet masks, so I decided to pick these up! And because it was on sale it was pretty close to the price of these masks online. Yay!

MUFE Artist Palette 1MUFE Artist Palette 2MUFE Artist Palette 3

The next product I got is the Make Up For Ever Artist Palette in number 1. This is something I’ve had my eye on since it was released, so I decided to splurge on it during the sale! I’ve been loving this palette since I got it, so I’m super happy that I bought it!

Chosungah 22 Dual Tint & Gloss Chiffon 1Chosungah 22 Dual Tint & Gloss Chiffon 2

The last thing I bought was the Chosungah 22 Dual Lip Tint & Gloss in Chiffon, which is a beautiful hot pink color! I first heard about this from Jen’s channel (Meejmuse) on YouTube and when I heard her rave about it I knew I wanted to try it! So I decided to wait for the sale to try it out. I’ve used it quite often already, so it’s another thing I’m super happy I purchased!

So that’s it for my haul guys! I did buy something for my mom at the same time, but since that’s a gift I didn’t want to show it on here, haha.

Did you guys buy anything during the sale? If so, what was it? Let me know in the comments!

Memebox: Intro to K-Pop Star Makeup Box #So Cute Vol. 3 Unboxing/Haul

Hello everyone!

So I’ve been buying a lot of stuff recently, in particular stuff from Memebox, so I wanted to share some of that with you today! I don’t have everything included in here, as one is actually a christmas gift (for me from my mom) and one I haven’t received in the mail yet, but I’ll show that to you guys when the time comes!

So first of all, I bought two different things from Memebox. I got theĀ Intro to K-Pop Star Makeup Box #So Cute Vol. 3 and one of the XO Memebox I’m Eyeliners.

Onto the Unboxing!

So Cute Memebox 1So Cute Memebox 2

This box came with 6 different items from the XO Memebox line, all to help you “achieve the cute & innocent babyface look that you see all over K-Pop music videos.”

First is the I’m Stick Shadow in #01 Have a Nice Day ($7.50), which is a beautiful glittery peachy-gold shade.

I'm Stick Shadow #01

I’ve tried most of the products in this box already and I have to say that I’m really impressed with this! It works really well as an eyeshadow base and sets quickly, so it doesn’t crease for quite a long time on my oily eyes.

Next is the I’m Cream Shadow in #01 Flash Light ($7.50), which is a glittery pearl shade.

I'm Cream Shadow #01

I have been using this in my inner corners and I’m loving the intense sparkle it gives! It makes me want to try more shades, haha.

The third product is the I’m Pro Mascara in #02 Volume & Curl ($14), and it’s a black shade.

I'm Pro Mascara #02

This is one of the products I haven’t tried yet, as I have a few mascaras open and I don’t want to have too many open at one time. But when I do try it, I’ll let you know how it is!

The next product is the I’m Lip Tint Balm in #CR008 Lovely Coral ($7), which is a very nice coral tinted balm (like it says! Haha).

I'm Lip Tint Balm #CR008

So far I really love this, as it’s more pigmented than I expected. It also smells like the Pony Blossom lipsticks, which is awesome! I love that smell so much, haha.

This box also included the I’m Lip Tint in #PK657 Monaco Nude Pink ($14), and it’s a pretty nude shade.

I'm Lip Tint #PK657

I don’t wear nude shades very often, but I feel like this one is pretty wearable, since its got a pink undertone to it. Very pretty!

The last item in this box is the Memebox Hydrogel Mask ($3).

Memebox Hydrogel Mask

I haven’t used it yet, but I have tried it in the past when it came with another box. It was nice, but it’ll be good to try it again!

This box also came with some free samples from the brand It’s Skin, which I’ve never tried before, so I’m pretty excited to try them out!

So Cute Memebox It's Skin Samples

They sent me a sachet of the Power 10 Formula YE Effector and their cleansing oil.

So the very last item that I bought is the XO Memebox I’m Eyeliner in the shade #05 Jade ($5).

I'm Eyeliner #05

It’s a beautiful deep olive green with golden shimmer, and I’ve been using this quite a bit since I got it! I think it’s perfect for fall and will be great during the holiday season too! It’s so pretty!

So that’s all that I bought for now! I’ll do another post when I get the last item I ordered!

Have you guys tried any of these products? Let me know what you think in the comments!
