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.

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!

M.A.C Favorites

Yo yo peeps!

Today I decided to do a “favorites” type of post. Since last December I finally decided to try something from MAC (I know, don’t kill me please xD)

I know that it did take me while, but to be honest, I was never really able to afford it. I was on a college budget and I never really saw the real appeal to the brand.

BUT FINALLY… last year I decided to give MAC a try and here are my favorite products.

1. “Media” Satin finish

2015-06-05 20.31.51

2015-06-05 20.32.28

I am a sucker for lipsticks. I love vampy colors and “Media” is one of my favorites.

2015-06-05 19.32.12

2015-06-05 19.30.23

20150605_193301

2. “Hang-Up” Creamesheen finish

2015-06-05 20.31.32

Okay, you guys might say that “Media” and “Hang-Up” are the same exact color, but they are not (and also I bought this one forgetting that I already had “Media”… don’t judge me)

But I would say that “Hang-Up” is lighter color and I the finish also makes it look different.

2015-06-05 20.32.43

2015-06-05 20.30.31

2015-06-05 20.30.02

2015-06-05 20.31.04

3. Lustreglass in “White Lustre”

2015-06-05 20.34.42

2015-06-05 20.33.40

I originally went into MAC looking for the Cinderella Collection, but it seemed like I was 2 weeks too late to get anything  because it sold out the same day it came out T___T

But I was specifically looking for their lip glass in “Glass Slipper”

mac-cinderella-lipglass-glass-slipper

But the closer color I found was “White Lustre”

4. Blush in “Fever” Matte finish

20150605_195004

20150605_195024

This is one of my favorites blushes hands down! This stuff will stay on your cheek for ages. I always get compliments when I wear this blush.

20150605_195158

The color pay off is amazing, so you only need to use a little bit.


Okay…. So that was it xD I know it was only a few products, but I still need to submerge myself a little bit into the brand.

I promise that I will update you on my future purchases!

NOW LET ME KNOW YOUR FAVORITE MAC PRODUCT! I NEED A LITTLE BIT OF DIRECTION HAHA

FREAKING EXO IS FREAKING BACK AND I DON’T EVEN HAVE A CHILL

LIKE I LEGIT GOT NO CHILL WITH EXO

I WAS JUST WORRYING ABOUT MY LIFE WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN EXO’S “LOVE ME RIGHT” HIT ME LIKE

2015-06-05 22.56.30

I was just now trying to get over “Call Me Baby” but then BAM… Here they are again T__T

But I really like this song. I mean, I like anything that EXO releases, but this song is so funky and fun, plus that choreo though!

And those vocals T___T… Kyungsoo’s “너와 내가” part just totally killed me!!

EXO I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER 😉

EXO FIGHTING!

Lorac Unzipped Palette *REVIEW*

Hello peeps!

I have returned with another review. Last week I was walking through the halls of Ulta (sigh!) and I couldn’t but stop at the Lorac section. I am not completely familiar with this brand but I heard a lot about the Lorac palettes and I wanted to try to one of them. Neither the Lorac PRO palettes caught my attention, so I gravitated towards the Lorac Unzipped Palette.

This palette is beautiful!  I like the fact that is very thin and light. Easy to use since you aren’t holding a 20 pound palette while you are applying xD

This is what the outside looks like

2015-05-31 19.53.16

The inside

20150525_180120

SWATCHES

This palette mostly contains neutral tones. This is the perfect palette for natural eye makeup days, or you can spicy up with a smoky eyes since it does have bold and darker colors.

2015-05-30 23.55.24

2015-05-30 23.03.25


CONCLUSION

  • Gorgeous palette! It has beautiful every-day colors and it is extremely pigmented
  • It retails for $42 bucks
  • It also comes with a mini of the behind the scenes eye-primer (I love it)
  • Love the packaging
  • I give this palette a 5/5

LET ME KNOW IF YOU WANT TO TRY THIS PALETTE? OR MAYBE YOU ALREADY OWN IT, LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT IT!

P.S

GUYS! A new kpop band just debuted and their name is “Seventeen”

This is their debut song

I FREAKING LOVE THIS SONG! It is super catchy and it has super powerful vocals as well. I am super impressed by these kids, and yes, by kids I really meant it! The youngest one I think was born in 1999 T.T Fortunately the ones that I like are legal (I am safe xD)  I was immediately drawn to Woozi, Minkyu and Wonwoo. I also can’t get over DK’s voice (damn son). This new group is very dangerous though xD They have mix of cuteness and sexiness… They will for sure do well in the future!

SEVENTEEN FIGHTING!

New On The Market: Urban Decay Revolution High-Color Lip Glosses & Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer

Yo Yo peeps!

Man, I haven’t done a review in like 20 billion years! I have been super duper busy lately and I haven’t had time to do a review.

But I am back today with 2 relatively new products.

They are from Urban Decay and Marc Jacobs.

20150523_202806


URBAN DECAY “REVOLUTION HIGH-COLOR LIP GLOSS”

 2015-05-23 20.43.39

The applicator is very unique. It has an almost triangle shape, but that makes it really easy to apply it. I personally hate sticky lip gloss, but this stuff is awesome. The color pay off is really good and it lasts a pretty decent time too.

I have on “Bitter Sweet” which is a bright purple color
2015-05-23 20.41.48

2015-05-23 20.42.41

2015-05-23 20.41.27

They have more shades to chose from if you aren’t looking for a crazy purple like mine. They also have 3 shades with glitter. Check them out!


MARC JACOBS ENAMORED HI-SHINE LIP LACQUER

2015-05-23 20.43.14

The applicator is squared and flat. It makes the product really easy to apply.

I have “Love Buzz” on my lips. Once again, this lip gloss isn’t sticky at all. It is very smooth and it smells like mint. This one also comes in more shades. This one caught my attention because it is pretty unique. It has very fine iridescent shimmer that makes it look very pretty.

2015-05-23 20.39.30

2015-05-23 20.40.20

2015-05-23 20.41.05


CONCLUSION

  • Beautiful colors and the shine is out of this world
  • The applicators for both products are super convenient and make the product very easy to apply on the lips.
  • I really like the smell of mint of the Marc Jacobs lip gloss
  • They last for a pretty decent time
  • The  turn down might be the price if you are on a budget. The Urban Decay is $22 and the Marc Jacobs is $28
  • I give both of these a 5/5. I am thinking of getting more colors.

WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK? WOULD YOU GIVE THESE A TRY? TELL ME WHAT YOUR FAVORITE LIP GLOSS IS…

Pony Pink Bloom Memebox *REVIEW*

Hello Peeps!

I have returned and as promised… I bring you today my Pony memebox review!

For those that do not know Pony, you can go and look at my previous review here (click)


Alright, ready? Let’s do this!

20150430_161211

You get 6 full size products in this Memebox.

I got the “Pony’s Choice in Pink Bloom” Memebox

YOU GET…

  • Shine Easy Glam3 Palette in #2 Pink Bloom
  • Blossom Lipstick #4 Blooming Love
  • I’m Eyeliner #4 Blazing
  • I’m Cream Blush #3 Selena
  • I’m Cream Shadow in #1 Flash Light
  • I’m Mascara in #1 Jet Black

          20150510_184217

THE PALETTE

20150510_184246

2015-05-10 21.06.22

This palette comes with 4 shades. Since this is the “Pink Bloom” quad, most of the eye shadows are pink with the exception of “Shine Ash Brown”

So let me tell you one thing first. These shadows are mostly glitter. They aren’t very pigmented but they are meant to be that way. Glitter is very popular in Korea and lots of K-pop stars sport glitter on their eyes. The only way you can get quite a good color pay off with these eye shadows is if you apply them wet.

THE LIPSTICK

Alright… so I kind of cheated on this one hahaha

The lipstick that came in the box is #4 in Blooming Love but pink does not look good on me. So I decided to buy another color that looks good on me (I gave the pink lipstick to my friend xD)

I bought #2 Spring Love

20150510_185514

The packaging is surprisingly super cute. It fits really well in your hands and the texture of the lipstick is very smooth.

I know it looks pretty pink in this pic, but I actually used a bright pink Dior lipstick and the put the #2 lip color in the middle.

2015-05-10 21.15.03

#2 Spring Lipstick Swatch

2015-05-10 20.55.58

THE EYELINER

Memebox definitely knows how to make eyeliners. I own 3 of their shades including the one that came in this box. OMG they are freaking pigmented and they just stay! They stay forever!

2015-05-10 20.58.17

Beautiful color: Check. Staying power: Freaking check! Good job Memebox

THE BLUSH

I wish I could say that same thing about this blush when it comes to staying power… I am not a fan of this blush. It doesn’t stay long and the color pay off is’t very good 😦 But if you are looking for light cream blush then this could be a very good option for you.

#3 Selena Cream Blush Swatch

2015-05-10 20.55.58

THE SHADOW

2015-05-10 21.07.59

Did you get blind when you saw this picture? Because this eye shadow is freaking glittery. These are basically pressed glitter. It comes with glitter chunks that once they break down they reveal their color.

They remind me of the Stila Magnificent Metal Foil Finish Eye Shadow. The Stila is a better quality though and it lasts longer than the memebox one.

20150510_184943

THE MASCARA

2015-05-10 20.57.44

I am actually very impressed with this mascara. This stuff is awesome, way better than the mascara I got in my previous Pony Memebox. This mascara will you all the length in the world (not so much volume) but there is downside to this mascara: It is freaking painful to take off. But to be honest, I am willing to go through that pain in order to have the result that this mascara gives me. This mascara is very “Korean” if we get technical about it. It gives you the length that is popular in Korea, because I don’t think that volume is popular per se.


And here is the look I created with this memebox

 2015-05-10 21.16.21

CONCLUSION

  • Beautiful products. I don’t think that all of them are really good, but I was overall happy with the whole box
  • OBSESSED with the mascara and the eyeliner!
  • The eye shadows and the lipstick are okay
  • Not loving the blush 😦
  • I give this memebox a 4/5.

NOW LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THOUGHT OF THIS MEMEBOX? THERE ARE OTHER 2 IN MEMEBOX.COM

ADIOS, BYE, CIAO, 再见,  안녕

P.S OMG you guys. I have been obsessed with this song

It’s called “Just Tell Me” by MyName. This is a Korean band that I have been listened to a lot ever since I heard their song “Too So Very Much”

When it comes to music I always appreciate catchy and fun songs. Not only they have good songs, but they also have super fun and entertaining dance moves! Check them out!

My bias is In Soo oppa. HE DRIVES ME CRAZY XD
