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!!

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)

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.

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

UV-미스트-쿠션

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

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 🙂

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

ADIOS, BYE, CIAO, 再见, 안녕

P.S

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!

Tony Moly Pocket Bunny Moist Mist (Bilingual Review Spanish/English)

Hello Peeps!

Hola Amigos y Amigas

Btw you guys, it is summer here and it is hot as all hell! I hate hot weather, but I have to just suck it up! (I specially hate Ohio weather, ugh it’s so sticky) But this also gives me an excuse to get more products are are aimed to help your complexion for those hot summer days!

Les dejo saber que ya es verano aqui donde yo vivo y esta super caliente. Yo odio el clima caliente, pero que le voy a hacer? (Yo odio especialmente el clima de Ohio porque es super humedo T.T) Pero eso me da una escusa para poder comprar productos que ayudan a mi complexion en estos dias calientes de verano!

So today am back with another review and I have to say that I really like this product hehehe it is soooo cute! 

Regrese hoy con otro review y tengo que decir que me encanta este producto jejeje es tan lindo

I present to you the Tony Moly Pocket Bunny Moist Mist

Les presento el Tony Moly Pocket Bunny Moist Mist

 2015-04-20 12.52.33

JUST LOOK HOW CUTE!!!! I swear, I would buy anything this cute even if I knew the product didn’t work! Curse you cute Korean makeup!

MIRENLO QUE LINDO!! Enserio, yo compraria todo que es lindo aunque yo supiera que el producto no funcionaria. Estupido maquillaje Coreano!

    20150418_185735


20150418_185843

Here is the packaging!  I can’t, it’s too cute :3

Aqui esta el empacado, es tan lindo :3

2015-04-20 12.52.33

When you spray it you get quite a lot of product, so I would advise to just spray it twice.

Cuando aprietas el spray sale bastante producto, entonces recomiendo que solamente los aprietes dos veces.

2015-04-20 12.52.03

Alright, now let’s talk about the real reason this product was made for (not just for my personal entertainment xD)

Bueno, ahora vamos a hablar sobre la razon real que este producto fue hecho (no solamente para mi propio entretenimiento)

So this is what this product claims to do:

Esto es lo que el producto dice que hace:

Back of the box: Soothing, hydrating face mist infused with fruit extracts to help boost elasticity while moisturizing dry, tired, or sensitive skin.

Atras de la caja: Relajante, hidratante mist para la cara infundido con extracto de frutas que ayudan a aumentar la elasticidad y al mismo tiempo hidratar piel seca, cansada y con sensitividad.

20150418_185853

2015-04-20 12.52.58

When you first spray it on your face you can smell the delicious aroma of fresh fruit. You can’t quite pinpoint exactly what fruit smells like because it comes with a blend of quite a lot of different ones. It comes with strawberry, peach, kiwi, apple, pineapple, grape, cranberry, raspberry and blueberry. (Dang)

Cuando te rocias el mist por primera vez tu puedes oler el delicioso aroma a fruta fresca. No puedes exactamente decir a que fruta huele porque viene con una mezcla de diferentes frutas. Viene con fresa, durazno, kiwi, manzana, piña , uva, arandano y frambuesa.

So product also claims to have aloe vera which is very beneficial for the skin, specially for irritated skin. (Talking about Aloe Vera,I did a review on the Nature Republic Aloe Vera if you guys want to check it out it’s just click here)

Este producto dice tener aloe vera que es muy beneficioso para la piel, especialmente para la piel irritada.

As for refreshing your face, I would say that it does the job. I really like how it feels on your face and it absorbs really quickly too. Unfortunately it won’t last all day, but I think that that’s the point of this product. It is small enough that you can carry it around and give your face quick fix of hydration, and you don’t have wait for the product to get absorbed so you can go out to the world in order to look normal xD

Y por lo que dice que refresca la cara, yo diria que si hace el trabajo. Me gusta como se siente en la cara y se absorbe facilmente y rapidamente. Unfortunadamente no te dura todo el dia, pero creo que ese es el proposito de este producto. Es pequeño que tu lo puedes cargar y darle a tu cara un poco de hidratacion rapida, y tampoco tienes que esperar que el producto se absorba para poder salir al mundo con una cara normal xD

I actually know that in Korea it is a staple product for every office. People tend to carry these products around and give themselves a quick spray every now and then. Man, we need to learn from Korean people hahaha

En Corea este producto es muy importante en las oficinas. La gente tiende a cargar estos productos y rociarse a menudo. Wow, deberiamos aprender de la gente Coreana jajajajaja


CONCLUSION

  • I CAN’T WITH THE PACKAGING! IT’S SOOO KAWAII!!!
  • El empacado es demasiado para mi jajaja es demasiado lindo
  • It is super convenient to carry around, you  just pop it in your purse and you are ready to go 🙂 
  • Es muy coveniente para cargarlo, solo lo tiras en tu bolso y estas lista para salir
  • I like the fact that you don’t have to spray it a lot of time in order to cover your whole face
  • Me gusta que no lo tienes que apretar muchas veces para cubrir tu cara
  • The smell it’s so yummy!
  • Huele delicioso
  • It is a great alternative if you are looking for an inexpensive face mist. This one retails for $15 dollars at Sephora. I believe that Urban Outfitters also carries Tony Moly on their website, I am not sure if they have it in store per se.
  • Es una buena alternativa si estas buscando un mist barato para la cara. En realidad no se donde lo vendan en Latino America. Si alguien sabe, porfavor me podrian decir 🙂
  • I give this product a 5/5. It’s super cute, refreshing and it smells so good! 
  • Le doy a este producto un 5/5. Super lindo, refresca y huele bien!

I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO ANYONE THAT IS LOOKING FOR A CONVENIENT AND SUPER FUN FACE MIST. NOW LET ME KNOW IF YOU GUYS WOULD TRY THIS PRODUCT. ALSO GUYS LET ME KNOW HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT MY FIRST BILINGUAL POST? DO YOU LIKE THE FORMAT? OR SHOULD I POST THEM SEPARATELY? PLEASE LET ME KNOW

P.S BTW I GOT MY FREAKING EXODUS ALBUMS T_T

20150420_150500

For those that do not know, I am a huge fan of K-pop 🙂 And I had been waiting for my CD’s to come for a while now. I am so freaking excited to finally have them with me!

If you happen to be an EXO fan, let me know your favorite song from the album 🙂

Laneige Water Drop Tint *Review*

Hello Peeps!

I am back!!

(even though it hasn’t been a day since I posted my last review kekeke)

Anyways… I recently purchased some Korean cosmetics and I want to review everything I got. Today I bring you a review of the Water Drop Tint by Laneige

2015-04-15 10.32.51

I personally love Laneige (tbh, I love anything that is under and made by AmorePacific xD) and I have a few of their skin care  products as well some of their cosmetics. I did a review on the Laneige BB Cushion a while ago. You can click here to read it 🙂


So let’s get on the review…

[LANEIGE] Water Drop Tint 6g_4

The Water Drop Tint comes in various shades (well pink and orange xD) .They are extremely pretty and wearable

The one that caught my attention was Scarlet Red

20150415_100913

I liked the fact that it isn’t red but it isn’t purely orange either. (Lol since it took so long to get here, I totally forgot I purchased this product, so when I put it on I was complaining because it didn’t look red)

20150415_100927

I tried reading that… I am not sure what it says T.T

20150415_100943

The box is pretty fancy 🙂

20150415_101017

Here is the Lip Tint 😀

20150415_101033

20150415_101108

This is what the applicator looks like.

20150415_10114420150415_101200

So here is the deal. The point of this applicator is to create gradient lips without having to conceal your lips.

So this is how you apply it (according to the Laneige.com website)

Step 1: Apply the the water drop-shaped on your lower lip left and right with the bent facing inside so that the tint is applied naturally and thoroughly, and then smack you lips 1 to 2 times.

Step 2: Apply the tint once more on the center of your lower lip to achieve gradient lips, giving your lips more dimension.

Now, let the pictures of my lips begin!

2015-04-12 03.34.44

2015-04-15 10.31.13

And now my lips with my face

20150415_103434

20150415_103422

Look who decided to visit me :3 (If you guys haven’t see their video, what are you waiting for? Just click right here)


CONCLUSION

  • Unfortunately this isn’t drug store priced makeup. I bought this one for $19.71 dollars at kpoptown.com
  • I wish the shade selection was wider. It only lets you pick from either pink or orange.
  • I don’t think that this tint is worth the price. I wish it was cheaper. It didn’t last long and the packaging looks really cheap too.
  • I like the color and the applicator, but once again, I don’t think it’s worth the price.
  • I give this product a 2.5/5. I would have appreciated more if it was cheaper because it doesn’t last long and I just don’t think you get what you pay for.

LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS BELOW WHAT YOU THOUGHT OF THIS PRODUCT. WOULD YOU PURCHASE IT? OR DO YOU THINK THERE IS A BETTER OPTION?

Nature Republic’s Aloe Vera

HIIIII, I AM BACK!!

I’ve been gone for more than a week but I’ve been crazy busy! Plus  I just got this product last Wednesday and I didn’t find  a chance to completely try it out. But now I am back after trying it out and I am ready to give you my two cents on it.

WARNING: This post is quite long. I just really had a lot to say but if you keep reading you will know why kkk. I will give you one hint *E-X-O*


NATURE REPUBLIC “ALOE VERA”

I purchased mine through kpoptown.com and I have to say that it took forever to get here!! (Ugh, the struggle of international fans is real)

I also purchased another products and the reviews are coming really soon 🙂

So let’s talk about Nature Republic “Aloe Vera.” But first let me tell you a story of my first encounter with Aloe Vera. When I was little, my mom has always been a huge believer of “natural medicine” and we used to grow Aloe Vera leaves. They always disgusted me because they look so sticky and the ooze that comes out of it just scared the hell out of me. Little did I know that years later I would be craving for all the benefits that Aloe Vera is said to contain in it! Aloe Vera soothes, moisturizes and heals. It has served in traditional medicine as multipurpose skin treatment. But be careful, that if not used properly it could actually be very dangerous.

Here is what this product claims to do:

      Free-shipping-Genuine-Nature-Republic-Nature-Trail-efficient-moisturizing-aloe-vera-gel-drying-acne-India-Mask


Also another thing… NO, I didn’t buy this product because EXO advertised it…

maxresdefault

What makes you think I would actually do that? Like seriously…

5qmymrw0c3jc43ee1eyqlhkqa4sgbpd7

I don’t even like EXO… -_- (Damn, those are a lot of aloe leaves. I didn’t know they were farmers)

56

There is no way someone would buy this product because of Xiumin’s face, pshttt!

maxresdefault (1)

Well since you are giving it to me, I might take it 😉

-What actually happened…

Me: Oh let’s see what Nature Republic has to offer *searches online* Oh look, they have this Aloe Vera gel, let’s see what people are saying about it *goes to google*

The first thing that pops up in my computer is this:

naturerepublicexo1

Me: Goes to kpoptown.com and immediately purchases, no questions asked.

MY XIUHAN FEELS (T.T) Oh look, there’s ChanBaek too 


20150330_141245

But anyways, it doesn’t matter how I happened to purchase this product hehe.

Here is the container where the product is retained. I have to say that it is quite bit, but I have read lots of reviews where people say that is huge, but I personally didn’t think it was that huge hehe. But for the price that I bought it it was actually an excellent deal.

*only 5 bucks at kpoptown.com*

20150330_141403

Her is a comparison with an Bath and Body Works full size spray (I hope you guys can get an idea of how big it is!)

20150330_141532

It also comes with a clear protector when you open the tub. I was really confused when I first opened it because I thought the product was hard xD (I’m such a pabo)

20150330_141639

20150330_143749

This is what the product looks out of tube.

20150330_143644

Btw to keep the product sanitary, make sure you don’t touch with your fingers. I have been using a Q-tip for the time being until I find something that I can scoop it out of the tube and then be able to wash afterwards.


aloe gel

These are the 8 uses this products claims to do.

I personally only used it as a moisturizing cream, base for makeup, hair treatment and body care.

First of all, the product is really cooling when you first put it in your hands. I really like how it feels and it’s really refreshing as well.

1st use: When I used it as a moisturizing cream I paired it with an oil. I used Josie Maran Argan Oil (0.5 oz) and I got it at Sephora for $16 bucks.

20150330_144054

Here is the product on my face.

20150330_143925

I also used it on the tips of my hair.

I left it on my face for 1/2 an hour and then I took a shower to wash it off my hair, but if I do like a night pack I leave it all night on my face.

20150330_144022

I also use it as a base for my lipstick. 🙂

20150330_144031

and under my eyes 🙂

20150330_171619

2nd: I mixed it with my foundation as well. I used a 2:1 ratio.

20150330_171037

I used Clinique’s “even better” foundation and Sephora’s mineral powder brush in 45.

20150330_171122

Here is my bare face

20150330_171758

This side has foundation with the Aloe Vera gel

20150330_171837

This one just has the foundation.

You can see the difference. The Aloe Vera makes one side looks slighter dewy than just using my regular foundation. I wore it for a few hours and the dewiness does go away pretty quickly.


CONCLUSION:

  • It does give me a cooling sensation and it makes my face feel refreshed.
  • I like the finish it give when I use it with my foundation, it is too bad it doesn’t last for a longer time.
  • I am not prone to get sunburns, but I see how this product would be very helpful if someone did get sunburns constantly. You could put some of the product in a smaller container and carry it around.
  • I used it on my hair but I guess it takes a while to see results. I am currently using a really good hair conditioner so I think that might not help me deduce whether it’s working or not.
  • I give this product a 3.5/5 🙂 I think it is very cooling and I like that, but I just doesn’t do the job when it comes to using it with a foundation.

PLEASE LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS IF YOU ARE GOING TO GIVE A TRY TO THIS PRODUCT OR IF YOU HAVE ALREADY TRIED IT.

ADIOS, BYE, CIAO, 再见,  안녕
