StyleKorean Haul!

Hello everyone!

I ordered some stuff from StyleKorean’s website for the first time not too long ago, and so I thought I’d share what I ordered with you!

First of all, StyleKorean’s website was pretty easy to use and the prices I found to all be very reasonable. The only thing that was not as great was the shipping price, but honestly it wasn’t too bad, considering that they are shipping these products all the way from Korea. However, if you live in the US, currently they are doing free shipping with orders over $70, which is awesome! And everything was packaged very nicely and securely, so I know I will order from them again in the future.

Onto the haul!

The first thing I got was these adorable Tony Moly X Pokemon Sheet Masks!! I had been wanting to try them and I was so glad that they had them in stock, since everywhere else I looked only had the rest of the make up or skincare from this collection.

I can’t wait to try these!

Next I got two items from Innisfree’s Green Tea line.

I got another Green Tea Seed Serum, which I love since I ran out, and I decided to also try the Green Tea Moisture Skin (Toner, I got the one for dry skin). I picked this up because Clinique recently discontinued the toner I usually use, so I wanted to find a suitable replacement. I love the serum, so I figured the toner would be a safe choice.

Since I mentioned my toner I currently use got discontinued, I also decided to pick up the Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect First Serum 2X Essential (weird name, haha).

I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m very impressed with the packaging! It comes in a glass bottle and with a bunch of cotton pads, which is why it’s more of a toner than a serum.

The last item I got is actually another repurchase!

I got the Memebox I’m Eyebrow Pencil in 04 Light Brown, which is my favorite eyebrow pencil I’ve used so far. I bought it from StyleKorean’s website however, because Memebox USA didn’t have it on their website anymore. 🙁 But I’m super happy that I was able to get it again! It really is my favorite because of the shape and color make it really easy to use.

So that’s it for my first haul from StyleKorean! Have you ever bought anything from their website? Let me know in the comments!

 

Products I’ve Used Up #3

Hello everyone!

Today I’m going to share with you the massive amount of stuff I’ve used up since last time I did one of these posts almost 7 months ago.

PIUP3.1

I’ve been trying to make sure I use up a lot of the items I have open, in particular skin care. And with that, I’ll show you what I’ve used up!

Memebox I’m Lip Liquid Review and Swatches

Hello everyone!

Today I’m going to review the Memebox I’m Lip Liquids that came in my K-Drama Makeup Box! I received two beautiful, bright colors, PK603 and RD600.

I'm Lip Liquids 1I'm Lip Liquids 2

Memebox describes these as intensely pigmented glosses that you can wear blended out for natural looks or fully layered for a more intense look! And boy, they aren’t kidding about these glosses packing the pigment! You can blend a few small dots of these onto your lips and they will cover them completely in a super smooth, pigmented layer!

Like this!

Memebox also says that these glosses have 3 different ingredients to nourish your lips: Manuka Honey, Argan oil, and Rosehip oil. Personally when you wear them sheered out, I don’t feel like these are all that hydrating, and if your lips are already dried out (like mine are right now), it can be uncomfortable. But I will say that they wear very comfortably when my lips aren’t as dry as the Saharah! And when you wear them fully opaque, that’s when you feel the hydrating powers of the oils! They wear very comfortably for around 5 hours with minimal eating/drinking, leaving behind a pretty staining effect.

I'm Lip Liquid Swatch 1I'm Lip Liquid Swatch 2

Left to Right: PK603, RD600 in artificial light and natural light, respectively.

I will say that they don’t really set at all, so they transfer to other things really easily. I would be careful when wearing this cause if you absentmindedly touch it, it may smear all over the place, haha.

The Verdict:

With all that being said, I really do enjoy these (PK603 is my favorite!) and I highly recommend them if you’re looking for a glossy liquid-lipstick type of product. And these are so amazingly pigmented too!

Have any of you tried these before? Do you want to try them? 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.

Sephora lip tint/ Holika Holika lipstick 1Sephora Lip Tint/ Holika Holika lipstick 2

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!

Memebox K-drama Makeup Box Vol. 3 Unboxing

Hello everyone!

This post has been a long time coming, but I’m finally going to show you what was in the K-drama box from October! I had purchased it for my mom to give it to me as a Christmas gift a long time ago, but now I am finally able to show you guys!

They do update this box from time to time, so if you purchase this now, the contents won’t be exactly the same. It will be a good deal though!

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!

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 the 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!

echoice Pure Lily & Shea Butter Hand Therapy Review

Hello everyone!

This post is long overdue, but I thought it would be worth writing anyways.

Today I’m going to review the echoice Pure Lily & Shea Butter Hand therapy! I got this as part of the Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize! Memebox and my first impression of this hand cream wasn’t really all that great. It seemed way too floral for me to use, but I’m happy to say that after using it more, I don’t get headaches from the fragrance! Yay!

IMG_1090IMG_1091

This hand cream has a very strong floral fragrance which is pleasant, but some people might not like it. It does fade away after a while too.

It is a slightly thick hand cream that is quite moisturizing, so I find that I have been using it more frequently than I expected! And the size of this cream (60g!) is great for the price! I found it on eBay for $5 (which is more than Memebox said it was worth, but still reasonable). I’ve paid a lot more for hand creams that are only 30g, so I think this hand is a great value if you enjoy the scent!

The Verdict: I’m really happy with this hand cream! Once I knew the smell wouldn’t bother me, I’ve been really pleased with it! I don’t know if I’ll but it again since I like to try new hand creams, but I’ll definitely use this up! I would just be wary of the smell for those who are sensitive.

Have any of you tried this hand cream? What are your favorites? Let me know in the comments!

March 2015 Favorites

Hello everyone!

I can’t believe March is already at it’s end! Every month seems to go by faster and faster, haha. I have a few things I’ve been loving this month that I’d love to share with you!

IMG_1263

Beauty Favorites:

The first favorite this month is the Etude House Sweet Recipe Chocolate Eyes Palette. This as a limited edition release for Etude House’s Spring 2013 collection (I believe). I recently have been wanting to wear makeup that doesn’t require any fuss, and this is perfect! It has 3 shades of matte brown, all of which have a smooth, buttery texture. I really love using the lightest shade all over my lid as it is dark enough to add a little definition without being too strong.

IMG_1266IMG_1264IMG_1265

It’s also in the shape of a chocolate bar! I love that the most, haha! I forgot how much I liked this when I first bought it!

My next favorite is the Pony X Memebox Easy Mix Block Blush.

IMG_1112IMG_1120IMG_1132

I’ve really been enjoying this recently because it’s a very subtle color that looks great on my skin tone (I’m ridiculously pale). Because of that, it’s been really great for everyday! It also has this really pleasant floral scent to it, kind of like the sent of the Benefit boxed blushes. However, because it’s so light, I’m not sure that this would look good on people with darker skin tones.

I also have been loving the Skinfood Black Bean Eyebrow Pencil in the shade #05 Grey Brown that I bought not too long ago.

IMG_1192IMG_1193IMG_1195

I was worried about the color being to dark for me, but I shouldn’t have been! The color is perfect! It lasts all day and the spoolie is very helpful for blending out the product to a nice, natural finish. I use it everyday!

And my last beauty favorite is the Memebox I’m Tint Balm in the shade #01 True red, which I recently reviewed here. I just found myself reaching for it all the time this month and I love using it!

IMG_1123IMG_1124

Fashion Favorites:

These American Eagle shorts!

image (2)

For some reason I put off buying a new pair of denim shorts, even though my old pair did not fit me at all anymore, but this month I finally got a new pair! They’re very comfortable (the material is stretchy) and the wash I got goes with everything! They’ll be great to have this summer as it’s already getting pretty hot where I live, so I see myself wearing them constantly.

I have been wearing them a lot this month already, usually with tights when the days are cooler and on days I go to school (since my legs need to be covered in the lab). I’m really happy I bought them!

That’s it for this past month! What have your favorites been? Let me know in the comments!
