Miracle Romance “Sailor Moon” Eyeliner

Hello peeps!!!

OMG! How is everyone doing? I’ve been gone for quite sometime and it’s all because of adulting -_-!

20170618_151351

Distressed because of so much adulting selfie!

I’ve been traveling quite a lot since mid-last year and I’ve been collecting a bunch of stuff that I want to share on my blogs, so keep tuned 🙂

So I’m making my great comeback with an eyeliner review! But, it’s not just any eyeliner… it’s the Sailor Moon “Miracle Romance Eyeliner”

Now for those that are wondering who Sailor Moon is, I only have one question for you: Did you live under a rock?

Okay, maybe I’m being a little harsh, but I only say this because I care you, yes you, the person ready this blog.

Well let me introduce you to the wonderful world of Sailor Moon!

Sailor Moon is a Japanese manga that came out in the late 80’s that was later animated in the early 90’s. From its inception it was well received by the public.

This anime was very meaningful for me growing up, because Serena was just like me, a middle-school girl that was confused about life in general, but she took the huge responsibility to become a Sailor Scout and save the world from evil. Her story and personality had a huge positive impact in the person I am today.

Anyways… let’s get into the good stuff!

It’s a felt tip eyeliner that comes with interchangeable caps (that you can put on top of the cap that they eyeliner comes with). You can get the Moon Stick, Cutie Moon Rod, Spiral Heart Moon Rod & Pink Moon Stick.

Mine already came with the Moon Stick. :

My sister traveled to South Korea a month ago, and she was kind enough to get this for me


NOW TO THE REVIEW:

After “punishing everyone in the name of the moon” *does sailor moon pose* (of course that was the first thing I had to do… duh) I decided to give it a try…

20170618_202134

20170618_202605

The first thing I noticed is that the felt tip makes it very easy to make thin or thick lines. The black is also very intense, but I did feel the need to do a couple more passes on top of my original line.

To put this baby to the test I decided to go out for a couple hours to test its durability and unfortunately it didn’t do so well…

20170618_202323

It stared to smudge about 2-3 hours after I started wearing it.

I do have to say that Ohio is very humid during the summer. When I was out it was about 80° degrees and there was 50% humidity. The MOST UNHOLY WEATHER!!!

Also it stared to fade at the wing:

20170618_202459

You can see that the liner part on the lid looks darker than the liner part on part that’s flicked.


CONCLUSION

  •  It’s a “TAKE MY MONEY” item for sure. For those that watched Sailor Moon as kids, know exactly what I’m talking about. I would say that this is a direct attack to the millennial population, since we were the ones that enjoyed Sailor moon during our childhoods. I know that they also release a Sailor Moon powder and people went nuts. You can probably try to find it only for a million dollars 🙂

  • My sister purchased this item for $20 dollars. For the price, I don’t think the eyeliner itself it’s worth it. Specially because you can totally get the Stila “All Day” waterproof eyeliner & this eyeliner will stay on all freaking day! ($22 dollars @ Sephora.com)
  • If think that this is more of a collectors item, than an actual well-thought out makeup product.
  • I give this product a 5/5. Even though the eyeliner itself isn’t the best, it brought a lot of good memories and I’m just excited to have something that makes me happy!

Guise, I’ve recently been listening to IU a lot! I never really gave her a chance before because I thought her music was just generic bubble-gum kpop. Don’t get me wrong, I usually don’t mind it, but it can get old. But boy, I was wrong! Her music is fantastic and you should go and giver her a listen. Her music just gets better with time!

HERA UV MIST CUSHION

Hello Peeps!!

I returned today with a BB Cushion review.

I haven’t been really been looking around for BB or CC Cushions lately, but I happen to find this one on memebox.com

Let’s get into the review!!!

I was actually pretty surprised with the box. It’s really pretty!!

wp-1448587491206.jpg

It also comes with a replacement cushion

wp-1448587485603.jpg

This is always a plus for me. I mean, it was pretty expensive so I better get my money’s worth!!

Now the Cushion packing is very sleek and chic. It feels like an high-end product (and it actually is! Hera is considered an high-end product in South Korea)

wp-1448587480832.jpg


NOW LET’S TRY IT!!

Let me tell you a little bit about my skin type. I have a acne prone skin, very oily in the summer and super dry in the winter. I have been experiencing some break-outs since I just recently moved into an apartment and while I was going through all the moving hassle I happened to misplaced my Mia2 for 2 days and I am now paying the consequences.

wp-1448587460770.jpg

I got shade C-23(their darkest shade)]

UV-미스트-쿠션

You can tell on this picture that it’s still pretty light

wp-1448587450545.jpg

Compared to my neck it makes me look pale as a ghost xD

wp-1448587454505.jpg

Now this is when I applied it all over my face.

I also added a little bit a bronzer and a bronzey blush (to even out my paleness xD)

wp-1448587426492.jpg

This is what it looks like in natural light.

wp-1448587446213.jpg

It is an extremely brightening formula. I loved the fact that even though it was lighter than my actual skin tone, it didn’t make me look ashy.


  • CONCLUSION

  • Excellent quality product. It lasts all day. I don’t think there is a need for retouching (unless you sweat a lot)
  • It doesn’t make you look ashy like a lot of other bb creams
  • If you have a darker skin tone, you won’t be able to find a shade that will match you 😦
  • This bb has a semi-matte finish, it isn’t as hydrating as other bb cushions.
  • I got it for $32 bucks at memebox.com

WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK? I REALLY THINK THIS IS GOOD CUSHION. I  JUST REALLY WISH THEY WOULD EXPAND THEIR SHADE RANGE!

ADIOS, BYE, 再见, 안녕

Guise lately, I have been pretty obsessed with Baekhyun from EXO

wp-1448603292462.jpg

Idk what it is… but he has just been looking extra fine!!

Also I am super excited that EXO is releasing an album soon!! My babies will be back soon 🙂

Clarisonic Mia 2 *Review and Demo*

Hello Peeps!!

I haz returned with another review!!

Today I will be taking about the Clarisonic Mia 2.

To be honest I never really thought I was going to ever purchase this product, but Sephora has it on sale online and I was like: Eh, why not?

Tah-Dah!!

I am now the proud owner of a Clarisonic Mia 2

 wpid-wp-1445807018007.jpg

Let’s see how this thing works!

First things first: Remove your makeup.

Yeah, I know this thing is supposed to clean your face really really well, but to be honest I always like to remove my makeup with an oil  so I can definitely assure that my makeup is off.

wpid-wp-1445807092532.jpg

Now let’s get a little personal with the actual product:

It’s very easy and simple to use.It has the on/off button and another button to control the speed. Since I got the Mia2, mine has 2 speeds.

*make sure that you charge it at least 24  hours before first use*

wpid-wp-1445807110607.jpg

Now that you know how to turn it on xD Let’s try it on our face:

The first thing I like to do is to put the face wash directly on my face.

I am using the Too Cool For School “Egg Mouse Soap” Facial Cleanser.

Let me know if you want a review!!

wpid-wp-1445807073867.jpg

Then I like to pretend to be a overly-creepy man with a beard.

wpid-wp-1445807081178.jpg

Anyways…. Let’s deep clean!!

wpid-wp-1445807068699.jpg

The Clarasonic works in 4 cycles. The first one lasts 20 seconds. You are supposed to use it on your forehead.

wpid-wp-1445807047674.jpg

Then the devices vibrates letting you know that the first cycle is done and you need to move to the next part of your face: Your chin area

wpid-wp-1445807054573.jpg

Then it vibrates again and then you are supposed to move to your cheeks:

wpid-wp-1445807035438.jpg

But this time you get 2 cycles of 10 seconds each. So you use 10 seconds on one cheek and then the other 10 on the other one.

wpid-wp-1445807039350.jpg

The device will automatically turn off after the full minute!

Then you are all done!

wpid-wp-1445807024732.jpg

Okay so now you are probably wondering: “So does this thing really work?”

HELL YEAH IT DOES!

My skin has been feeling and looking its best ever I started using it. I haven’t had a break out since I bought it and started using it. I really think it’s worth the investment.


CONCLUSION

  • Super duper easy to use.
  • It’s a extremely quick deep cleanse. I really like the fact that it takes you 1 minute to do your whole face.
  • It is rather expensive. I got mine for $119 at Sephora (and I got it on sale)
  • The head brush replacements are expensive as hell (I think that the cheapest ones are like $29 bucks)
  • It does give you rather quickly results. It all, of course, depends on how well your skin takes it.
  • I give this product a 5 out of 5

ADIOS, BYE, 再见, 안녕

WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK OF THE CLARASONIC? AT FIRST I THOUGHT IT WAS A BUNCH OF BS, BUT I HAVE TO SAY THAT I WAS WRONG. THIS THING CAN WORK WONDERS.

Today I want to recommend you this song by GOT7

It’s called “If you do” 니가 하면

Ever since I heard this song I have been obsessed with it. GOT7 came back so strong this year. I legit couldn’t control my feels when I saw this video.

My sister and I made a video reaction for their song “A” about a year ago

Go, check it out, and also watch another reaction videos in my channel.

Chosungah 22 Dong Gong Minn Brow Maker *Review and Demo*

Hello Peeps!

I have been gone for quite a while 😦

I didn’t have a computer in all that time, but I was finally able to afford a new one and therefore I should be able to post more often! (Yeeeh!!!)

My last post for the Chosungah lip stain was a sucess!!! It’s the post that had the most views from all of my other posts (just in case you missed it, here it is: Chosungah Lip Tint Review)

So I decided to make another post about another Chosungah product!!!

This time I will talk about the Chosungah 22 Dong Gong Minn Brow Maker

 images (1)

images

 This brow product was created in order to simplify the art of getting your eyebrows “on fleek”

It comes in 4 different shades:

Brow-gel


And now the moment of truth…

LET’S TEST IT OUT!!

So, this is what my real eyebrows look like (I know you are laughing -_- Staph!)

wpid-wp-1445215802339.jpg

Let’s see what time of miracles this thing can do for me…

Peasants, behold Chosungah Brow Maker in all of it’s glory…

wpid-wp-1445215823550.jpg

Now let’s break it up:

The wand comes with a brush and the a spongy tip

wpid-wp-1445220812853.jpg

wpid-wp-1445215829668.jpg

This is how you used it:

1. Comb through your eyebrows (start with the inner part)

wpid-wp-1445215767628.jpg

2. Used the sponge tip to fill out the sparse parts

wpid-wp-1445215757420.jpg

wpid-wp-1445215789248.jpg

3. DONE,킅, FINITO

wpid-wp-1445215778704.jpg

wpid-wp-1445215742562.jpg

wpid-wp-1445215737304.jpg

And here is the finished look (it clearly took me way more time than what filling in my eyebrows did)

I’m trying to inter channel the bad girl inside of me 🙂

wpid-wp-1445215726086.jpg

wpid-wp-1445215811740.jpg


CONCLUSION

  • Easiest-to-use-eyebrow-pencil-ever!
  • I love the fact that it has wax also incorporated, so your eyebrows ain’t going no where, homie!
  • Cutest packaging (and Koreans do it one more time)
  • You have to be very careful with the amount of product you use. A little bit goes a long way.
  • It’s not the cheapest ($22 bucks at Sephora

NOW, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THESE TYPE OF PRODUCTS? I AM A HUGE FAN OF SIMPLICITY, SO I DEFINITELY APPRECIATED THIS PRODUCT!

ADIOS, BYE, CIAO, 再见, 안녕

Guise, lately I have super obsessed with this song:

Like you don’t even understand… my whole life have been revolving around this one song.

IKON is YG’s new boy group. To be honest, I have never been interest in any YG artist before. But they totally drew me in!! So watch this video and enjoy hehe

Chosungah 22 Dual Lip Tint and Gloss *Review and Demo*

Hello peeps!

Today I bring you a review of the Chosungah 22 dual lip tint.

Just to give you a little bit of a history for this Korean brand.

What I know is that it was created by a Korean makeup artist and it was only used with celebrities. But it has been opened to the public and you can get the Chosungah makeup products at Sephora and other online websites (like Memebox).

I have to say that I was pretty excited when I saw this product at Sephora.

20150807_183355

It’s a double ended product, and it makes it very convenient to carry.

20150807_183341

SWATCHES:

This one is in color Velvet.

20150807_183514

Now let me show you a demo:

This is when I only applied the lip tint to my lips.

20150807_183822-1

20150807_183828-1

I have to say that it makes your lips look very “juicy”

Here is the lip tint with the gloss

20150807_184910-1

20150807_184920-120150807_184717-1

20150807_183936

At first the lip tint felt very sticky, but the stickiness goes a away after a little while.


CONCLUSION

  • I really liked the fact that this lip tint delivered a lot of the pigment on the first application. With some Korean lip tints you have to try at least 2 or 3 times in order to get a good color pay off.
  • The combination of the lip tint and lip gloss is life. They work so well together.
  • It’s not the most affordable lip stain ($19 @ Sephora)
  • As for wear, I have to say that it’s not the best. The lip tint doesn’t last all day, but the lip gloss does last a very decent amount of time.
  • I’ll give this lip tint a 4/5

ADIOS, BYE, CIAO, 再见, 안녕

My song recommendation for this time is: EXO “Growl”

I’ll just leave this here and cry forever T.T because they are too handsome!!!!

Smashbox “Camera Ready BB Water” & Tony Moly “Luminous Aura” *Review and Demo*

Hello peeps!!!

Yes, I know… I legit didn’t post at all last month! But a lot of stuff occured T.T

Lost my cellphone, getting crazy hours at work, Xiumin from EXO still isn’t my boyfriend… sigh 😦

But now it’s all good in the hood, and I have returned!!!

Annndd today I bring you a review of not 1 BUT 2 products!!


Smashbox “Camera Ready BB Water”

This products claims to prime, perfect and protect (they should just called it a pp water xD jk)

This product is supposed to give you a demi-matte look and it’s formulated to last a long time!

It’s alcohol free (means no shine and no drying) and it also comes in tons of shades. I am really glad the cosmetic industry is trying really hard to create shades for almost everyone!

Let’s try it out

20150802_103946

I applied this product with a beauty blender. I feel like it gives you the best finish!

20150802_104000-1

20150802_104143

This stuff is super watery (hence the name xD)

Then I added some of the Luminous Aura

20150705_102835

20150802_104214-1

You can use your own ratio but I did 2:1 with this. The Luminous Aura will work with just a small amount

*END RESULT*

20150802_104724-1

20150802_104731-1

Super dewy and healthy looking skin.

But if you ain’t about that “all-over” dewiness and want to mattify some areas of your face I would recommend to use a brightening powder.

20150802_192924

The Sephora Collection “Bright Set” powder in banana should do the work!

20150705_172913

I put some powder on my T-Zone so it didn’t get too oily!

But I was completely happy with then end result.

20150705_172958

Now let me give you a quick rundown of the Luminous Aura:

Sephora Website: Tony Moly’s multitasking Luminous Goddess Aura Beam creates a luminious glow with its real pearl powder. Enriched with collagen and natural oils that are known for their antiaging and hydrating benefits, it can be used alone or mixed with your foundation. Perfect for every skintone, this powder nourishes skin with argan, almond, and jojoba natural oils and extracts.

I haven’t seen any of the “anti-aging” results but it definitely hydrates. It works really well and you can also use it as a highlighter.


CONCLUSION

  • Great products. I would recommend the BB water for people that do not have much to cover. I would say it has a light to sheer coverage, but you can use it with your favorite concealer or foundation
  • If you ain’t about that extra dewy life, then the Luminous Aura is not for you. This stuff will give you “I-just-came-out-of-a-korean-drama-shooting” dewiness. But if you love it, then you should go to Sephora now and buy it!
  • Neither of these products broke me out! I was really happy about that.
  • I give these products a 5/5

NOW LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE EVER TRIED THESE PRODUCTS! LET ME KNOW YOUR  THOUGHTS!

ADIOS, BYE, CIAO, 再见, 안녕

Well, since I have been recommending some songs in my last posts, I think I will make this a part of my posts from now on!

The song I recommend this time is OneOkRock “Deeper Deeper”

I really like the live version, but this song rocks in general!

OneOkRock is a Japanese rock band. They sing most of their songs in English, but they also throw some Japanese in there.

Check them out!

“Kat Von D” Lipstick Favorites: Studded Kiss Lipstick Version

Yo peeps!

Man, I haven’t been here in a while! But it wasn’t because I didn’t want to, my life just suddenly became super busy T.T

But I am back…

Today I bring you my Favorite Kat Von D lipsticks!

Let’s begin!!


Well let’s start talking about Kat Von D. She is BAD A**!!! Like legit, I kind of wished I had her life. For example, she owns her own cosmetic line, she is friends with freaking Gerard Way from My Chemical Romance (you guys don’t know how obsessed I used to be with him) and she always looks awesome, sometimes a little bit odd, but her job allows her to do whatever she wants with her appearance! What a life T.T

But anyways… I am not here to talk about that! Let’s talk lipsticks 🙂

So these are called “studded” for a reason…

20150622_205115

They were made to resemble Kat Von D’s favorite studded bracelet.

I think that the packaging is super cool!

Now let’s look at my favorites

1. Slayer

           2015-06-21 23.58.52

This is jet black color! I bought it because I went to Gerard’s Way concert (lead singer from My Chemical Romance) I wanted to remember my emo days xD But seriously, I love this color!

The downside of this color is that it wears off in patches. This is how it looks after I have been wearing it for like 5 mins. But, it is still one of my favorite colors.

2015-06-21 23.58.21

2. Wolve’s Mouth

2015-06-22 00.00.11

I believe that this was a limited edition color. I legit bought it before they put it out on the shelves at Sephora. This is a purple with blue iridescent shimmer. At first I was very hesitant to buy it when I tried it, but it grew on me while I was at the store.

2015-06-21 23.59.46

2015-06-21 23.59.25

3. Vampira

2015-06-21 23.57.46

2015-06-21 23.57.16

LOVE LOVE THIS COLOR! Any lipstick that is close to this color is my favorite!

4. Hexagram

2015-06-22 00.02.06

HANDS DOWN! THIS IS MY FAVORITE OUT OF ALL OF THEM!

2015-06-22 00.02.26

2015-06-22 00.00.40

5.Underage Red

This one tops with Hexagram. I love both of these reds!

20150613_193642

Well… there you had it! I have a small collection but I am thinking of buying more in the future.

20150622_202304

20150622_202455

(you may not see “Underage Red” and that’s because I am an idiot and I lost it T.T)

20150622_202433

Prime example of me being an idiot xD

20150622_203511

Here is me wearing “Outlawed” one of the liquid lipsticks by Kat Von D (random… I know xD)

CONCLUSION

  •  Love love love these lipsticks! Most of them have a really good staying power
  • 2015-06-22 00.01.41
  • They just make me feel bad a** in general
  • These are great colors too if you are looking for something to get out of your comfort zone.
  • I give these a 5/5

Well there you had it! My small, but powerful collection!

DO YOU HAVE ANY KAT VON D LIPSTICKS? IF YOU DO, WHICH ONE IS YOUR FAVORITE??

P.S

So lately I have been trying to step my hair game. I have never been huge on hair stuff and just doing my hair in general, but lately I have been trying really hard. I just purchased some products by Dry Bar and I have been using them and I am not sure how I feel about them. I tried to “blow out” my hair but this is out it ended up looking:

20150622_203316

lol jk

Here it is how it looks styled…

20150622_203331

This is how my hair looks naturally:

20150531_144528

So it is quite a difference for me…

20150622_202230

I think it looks alright…

I might.. just might… show you what I did to my hair! haha I still need to perfect it!
