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)

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

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

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!

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!

Korean Style Makeup Tutorial

Hello peeps!

I have returned with a tutorial this time. I have been watching quite a lot of K-Pop videos lately and I am always jealous of how perfect all the girls in K-Pop groups always look.

This time around I am focusing mostly on the eyes.

Let the tutorial begin…


Alright so let’s get the eyebrows out of the way…

2015-05-13 14.16.46

Here I am using “I’m Eyebrow Mascara” in Brown by Memebox and Anastasia Beverly Hills “DipBrow Pomade” in Dark Brown

2015-05-13 14.18.10

It is popular in Korea to tint your eyebrows a lighter color. In #1 I swiped the Eyebrow Mascara and #2 is my natural eyebrow color. Experiment with different colors!

For eyebrows, make sure that they are straight. Arched eyebrows aren’t very popular in Korea. The thinking behind a straight brow is that it makes you look more soft and youthful.

2015-05-13 14.18.37

EYEBROWS… DONE!

2015-05-13 14.19.02


Alright, now let’s talk eyes!

I am using more than one eye shadow palette for this tutorial. You don’t have to use the same exact colors and brands that I have. I am just giving you an idea for you to make it your own!

Okay, so this is a quad by Givenchy that came out a while ago. Their eye shadows don’t have individual names so I am just going to name them #1 #2 #3 and #4. If throughout the tutorial you forget what number is which color, just come back to this picture.

This is the Siena Silhouette 76

2015-05-13 14.20.37

For my lid I used #4 from the Siena Silhouette quad

2015-05-13 14.22.19

I contoured with #1 from the Siena Silhouette quad.

2015-05-13 14.23.09

I used the “Bulletproof 24 hour” by Too Faced to make a thin line on my lid.

2015-05-13 14.19.45

2015-05-13 14.23.50

I applied a black eyeliner very close to the lash line. Make sure you don’t make it too thick. I used the Sephora Collection Long-Lasting 12HR Wear Eye Liner

When drawing your line when you get to the corner of your eye you have to bring it down instead of up. This will create the illusion of bigger eyes.

2015-05-13 14.24.34

For my under eye I am using an Artist Shadow by Makeup forever. I grabbed a bullet-shaped eye shadow brush and placed it all over my under eye.

TBH I don’t remember the name of the eye shadow but I believe it’s M738 Auburn.

You are more than welcomed to use a different color

s1623693-main-hero-300

2015-05-13 14.25.36

I placed a small violet line in the middle of my lower eyelid. I used the Play 101 Pencil in #19. Just to give it a pop of color.

I also went over the thin gel liner line I made, with another eyeliner. I used the Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Crayon in #42 Blacquer

20150513_151028

2015-05-13 14.26.26

I went over the orange color I placed earlier on my lower eye area with “Orange You Fancy” eyeshadow from the Artist Palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills (REVIEW COMING SOON)

I also put in some of the Urban Decay “Heavy Metal Glitter Liner” in Glamrock on my inner corner. This step is very important since it will also help with the bigger eye effect. You can use a highlighter for this step as well.

2015-05-13 14.21.32

s1550573-main-hero-300

Dots: Orange You Fancy

Lines: Glamrock

2015-05-13 14.27.22

As for mascara I am using the “I’m Mascara” by Memebox in Black. This gives my eyelashes length, and not so much volume. This is what you need to look for in a mascara for the Korean Style.

2015-05-13 14.27.43

Another important step is to contour the “agyeo sal”

Okay for those that do not know what that is, “agyeo” in Korean closely translates to “cute” and “sal” means “flesh” I know, gross xD So it’s the “cute flesh” that babies have under their eyes that makes their eyes look cute and big. Grab a bullet-shaped brush and place it under the skin that gathers under your eye when you smile. xD I really don’t know how to explain it so just look at the picture below.

2015-05-13 14.16.01

2015-05-13 14.30.35

Finish off with a lip color that makes your complexion brighter. I chose the Two Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in “Melted Ruby”

2015-05-13 14.28.20

AND WE ARE DONE!

2015-05-13 14.30.14

2015-05-13 14.29.14

Korean makeup should look simple and a bit natural.

ALRIGHT, WELL THERE YOU HAVE IT. LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THIS STYLE!

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

Beauty Pouch Essentials for Summer Part II

Hello peeps!

I am back with the second part of my “beauty pouch essentials”.

P.S: Today was so freaking hot! I legit hate this weather so freaking much T.T

If you haven’t seen the first part just click right hurrr!


1. Mascara

2015-05-04 18.57.43

If you want to give your eyes an instant boost of liveliness, then just put some mascara on! This will make your eyes look bigger and more awake. I love the fact that your favorite mascara can come in a mini-size. They are extremely easy to carry with you just in case an accident happens! If you don’t have time to clamp your lashes with a curler then I recommend the “Roller Lash” by Benefit. Not only will this mascara will give you volume, but it will curl your lashes without an eyelash curler.

2. Finishing Powder

2015-05-04 18.58.08

Want to be matte but also covered? Then look no more with a finishing powder. You can either use it after your foundation or alone. This will help you keep your face matte throughout the day and it’s also very easy to carry. I recommend the Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Tinted Pressed Finishing Powder by Tarte (dang, that’s quite a name) ($34 @ Sephora)

3. Eyebrow Wiz & Play 101 Pencil

2015-05-04 18.59.04

If your eyebrows are a little out of shape, you can always fix them with an eyebrow pencil. I love eyebrow pencils because they are super easy to carry and you can just fix your eyebrows on-the-go! Another product that it isn’t very popular here in the States (but it should) is the Play 101 pencils by Etude House. OMG I love these so much. So let me explain what they are: these are multi-purpose pencils that you can use for more than one place in your face. I currently have 5 shades and I love them. If you want to know more about these you can read my review here! For eyebrow pencil I would recommend the Brow Wiz by Anastasia Beverly Hills. ($21 @ Sephora) (Etude House pecils $8 each @memebox.com) Unfortunately only a few shades are available at memebox.com 😦 You can find more at kpoptown.com

4. Roller Ball Frangrance

2015-05-04 18.56.56

Everybody wants to smell good! Roller ball fragrances are such an amazing option so you can smell good 24/7. I recommend “Love” by Chloe. ($25 @ Sephora) 

5. Lip gloss

2015-05-04 18.58.29

Shine? Yes! Then you should get yourself a nice  lip gloss. These are a great alternative for lipstick. For those days that you just want rock some shine on your lips. I recommend the “Marvelous Moxie” Lip glosses by Bareminerals. ($18 @ Sephora) I also recommend the Sephora Collection Ultra Lip Gel (did a review on these)

6. Make-Up Pouch

2015-05-04 19.00.03

And of course you need something to carry all those precious items… Get a really cute pouch and enjoy this summer looking fantastic B-)


WELL THERE YOU HAD IT! THESE ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITES. PLEASE TELL ME IN THE COMMENTS BELOW WHAT SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE SUMMER ITEMS. I AM DYING TO KNOW, I MIGHT EVEN STEAL SOME IDEAS XD

P.S. I JUST RECENTLY PURCHASED THE LATEST PONY MEMEBOX!
