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

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

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!

ADIOS, BYE, CIAO, 再见, 안녕

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!

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.

 2015-05-13 14.31.15


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

I attempted to do the Negative Space Nails trend. Lol I think I did a pretty decent job for my first time.
