Etude House Pink Bird Box - Snowy Dessert Collection & Honey Cera 4-in-1 Kit Mini Reviews

Hello!  I'm super excited today to announce that I'm officially part of Etude House's Pink Bird Blogger Program!  ( ^o^ )/  But if you follow me on insta you've already known that. >_<  I've always been a huge fan of Etude House and to be working with them is a huge honor!  Still can't believe I'm a Pink Bird... thank you so much to Etude House for giving me this chance.

For the first box they've sent a few products from their new holiday Snowy Dessert Collection and a travel set of their Honey Cera 4-in-1 Kit as a bonus item. :)

Someone wanted to be in the frame!  Haha.  Hiro is sooo cute!  It comes in a super cute pink box that says "All of you are born as a princess" under the Etude House logo.  At the top and bottom is a cute ribbon bow design with cute little ornaments.

Inside is a pink envelope sealed with an Etude House sticker.

Within the envelope are two posters of their new collections; Snowy Dessert and Honey Cera.

Here are the five items in the box:  Play 101 Pencil in #71 and #73, Ginger Cookie BlusherPudding Tint in PK001 Grapefruit, and Honey Cera 4-in-1 Kit.  It also came with a mini magazine filled with tutorials and general information about makeup and skincare.  It's written in English so I can read it!  Yes! :D

Okay, let's get into the details of the products!

[JOLSE] Koelf Pearl & Shea Butter Eye Patch Review

Hello!  Today I'll be sharing Koelf's Pearl and Shea Butter Eye Patch from Jolse with you guys.  :)  I actually got this item for free when she(the owner) was holding an event for beauty bloggers around the world to review 3 different types of Koelf's eye patches.  She was giving out five of each eye patch so 15 total, and turns out I was one of those 15!  Ahhh! ^o^)/ Lucky!

I forgot that I entered the event and randomly went to their facebook page one day and saw that she has chosen the winners and they have to claim their prize by Nov.5!  It was Nov.5th that day but Korea was already on Nov.6th!  I quickly emailed the owner and luckily she shipped it the next day. >_< Haha.  Anyways, I chose to review the pearl and shea butter because my under eyes are dry and need moisture!

Before I get into the review, let's get some info on the brand Koelf, because I never heard of this brand before.  >_<  I always have to look up new brands I don't know because it's just the way I am. :)  On the brand's official website it reads; "Koelf is a brand which pursues the ever-lasting beauty of the elf.  It represents the confident and glamorous beauty of women in their 20s-30s."  Below their brand story are three beautifully illustrated elves.  Elves are known to have flawless and youthful beauty, so I guess that's the main idea behind the brand. :)  

Again, there are three different eye patches; Gold and Royal Jelly (smoothing and firming), Ruby and Bulgarian Rose (brightening), and lastly Peal and Shea Butter (glowing and moisture).  These eye patches retail for $12.98 on Jolse but they're always having sales and right now they are $11.03 + free shipping!  That's what I LOVE about Jolse, free shipping with no minimum price!  YASSSS.  (ノ≧∀≦)ノ

Petite Cherry Sonia Unlined Transparent Underwired Bra Set in Navy Review

Hello!  I'm back with an intimate review from Petite Cherry.  Petite Cherry kindly let me chose a bra and panty set to review.  I picked Sonia Unlined Transparent Underwired Bra Set in Navy.  This set is available in five different colors; black, navy, pink, lilac and mauve.  I was about to get the lilac one but quickly changed my mind to navy because I thought it'll look more mature.  Haha.

Petite Cherry is an intimate apparel shop that has super cute high quality Japanese style bras and panties that are comfortable and most of all, affordable.  One of the best things about Petite Cherry is that they carry an awesome range of sizes.  They believe every women deserves to feel absolutely sexy, confident and appreciate how beautiful they are.  And this is soooo true!  I absolutely love the story behind the brand.  You can read more of Bree's story and how she came to find Petite Cherry here. :)  After reading the story of the brand, the name of the brand is super cute!

Without further ado let's get into the review. ^__^

It comes in a medium black box with the brand's logo sticker in the center.

I did not think they'll package it sooo cutely!  The bra and panty set comes in a plastic bag wrapped in pink tissue paper topped with a black ribbon with "Petite Cherry" printed in a dark gold color and sealed with a Petite Cherry sticker.  They also pop in a photo card.

[UNIQSO] Japanese Igari Makeup Tutorial with Sweety Nudy Ice Brown + Mini Reviews + AMAZING Black Friday Deals

Hello!  I know, I haven't been active lately because my household had a virus circulating around for two weeks.  It started off with my little sister and she transferred it to my Mom, to my future my brother in-law, to my sister, and everyone else expect for my Dad and Bear Bear (dog).   Then, last week my oldest sister's husband was in the hospital right after his graduation.  I also had super bad stomach cramps last week and this earlier week.  The past two weeks were pretty chaotic BUT Black Friday totally just lifted up my mood. ^o^

I bought A LOT of stuff.  I already have more than half of the people on my list done and wrapped.  I've been super excited for Christmas ever since the beginning of October and I'm sure I'm not the only one. >_<  My birthday is also coming up (Dec.22) so I'm in a pretty good mood. :)  What did you get during Black Friday?

Anyways, I know I'm late with this makeup look.  I posted a "preview" on my instagram about 2 weeks ago and never got the chance to redo the tutorial but here it is!  Better late than never right.

This month from Uniqso, I ordered SKIN79 Hyaluronic Cushion in #23 Natural (oh my gosh, I LOVE this cushion!), Sweety Nudy Ice Brown (UNIQSO's circle lens brand), Solone Captivating Dolly Liquid Eyeliner, and Stella Eyelashes Natural Prime 2015.  With all of these items I decided to create a Japanese Igari makeup look.  I will tell you my thoughts on the products after the tutorial.  Also for my MIA-ness, I made this tutorial a bit more fun to read.  Hope you enjoy! :)

Cruelty-free Eyelash Brand - Ono Lash Review

Hello there!  So sorry for not posting anything in a while, this post was suppose to be posted early last week but something happened.  Last Sunday, while playing dodgeball I sprained my ankle when landing when I went to play with a group of friends at an indoor trampoline park.  I heard a loud crack.  I was like "oh my gosh....."  After a week and a half later, my ankle is 90% healed and been feeling sluggish for some reason.  This is my second time spraining my ankle. (-_-) *sigh*  I had too much fun that day. 

Anyways, today I'll be reviewing six pairs of false lashes that Ono Lash generously sent me.  Of course everything is 1000% my honest opinion.  Let me tell you a little bit about the brand before I get into the review.  The creator of Ono Lash is Sophie Ono, who is a New York City makeup artist.  She's done makeup looks for celebrities and top publications such as Vogue, Nylon, Essence, and others.  One of the best things about Ono Lash is that their lashes are cruelty-free!  Their lashes are made from non-animal derived fiber blends and human hair.  They have roughly 23 different lash styles so you're guaranteed to find at least one lash pair you'd like. :)

Is this or is this not the cutest box packaging out there.  Love the cute stickers.  Definitely saving this box.

September Beauty Haul | High & Low End Brands & Memebox

Hello!  September has been an awesome month for me and I hope it was for you too. :)   *takes deep a breath*  Once October starts, it's only going to be three more months until my birthday and Christmas!  I'm already feeling the Christmas spirt.  Haha.  (・∀・)

Arrgg!!!  All of these new releases, sales, and gift sets from cosmetic stores and brands are killing me!  I've gone crazy.  Not really.  Maybe a little....  Ulta was having their 21 days of beauty and then Macy's started their beauty scene event.  (-__-)  Those two stores really know how to take my money.  This whole month I've made multiple trips to Macy's and Ulta, just like every other month.  Haha.  This is what happens when you live within five miles to commercial areas.  (>_<)

Okay, let's get into the products.  *Sorry for the bad lighting.*

Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator - A Macy's Exclusive
Retails for $28
I got one out of the four shades available.  I decided to go with So Hollywood, a gold shimmer highlight that will match every skin tone.  I'm sooo tempted to go get more!!!  It's sooo purrrdy!  I want to go back and get starlight, which is a shear white shimmer that will also match any skin tone.  But I keep asking myself, "Do I really need it?"  YES!  It's limited Edition!  Haha.  . . . .   I hate myself. -_-

MEMEBOX I'm Lip Stick New & Improved Formula Review & Detailed Swatches

Hello! Sorry for not posting anything for almost a whole month.  I was going to blog about my recent makeup buys but then I figured I will just make a favorites post later this month.  Anyways, a few days ago when I was bored and had nothing to do I checked the mail and saw a brown box stuffed inside the mail box.  I was like *gasp* overfilled with joy.  (*^ワ^*)

Inside the box was Memebox's new and Improved I'm Lipstick that I was waiting so long for to be launched on the global site!  Yay!  I was about to purchase a few but then they still have soooo many items that are not released on the USA site yet.  I was going to wait a bit... but then once again Memebox surprised me with nine lipsticks. ( >_< )  I <3 Memebox Team.

I'm Lip Stick Description:

Upgraded with better formulation and a much advanced color technology, I’m Lipstick delivers full color payoff in just one swipe. It possesses a lip-hugging property which allows the color to fully adhere onto the lips for a long-lasting wear.

MEMEBOX I'm Lip Liquid in 15 Shades Review & Detailed Swatches

Hello!  For the past few days I've been feeling super happy and excited because Memebox recently sent me all 15 of their new I'm Lip Liquid series!  Never in my whole life I thought they'll send me all 15.  I thought they will send the deluxe set of 6 but all 15!?!?  Oh my gosh, you have to be kidding me.  They were sooo pretty that I didn't even touch them.  I sat on my bed staring at them forever.  Haha.  I was feeling so jfkl;ajskfja I thought I could die.

I can't believe it's already been a full year ever since I've been working with Memebox.  /cry.  They're one of the companies that I ALWAYS talk about with friends and family because they are simply awesome.  My sister always says she likes my lip color and I always reply "it's from Memebox." Although their products are priced sort of high, they are always having sales, value sets, and boxes that give amazing deals and steals.  ^o^)/ I'm not saying this just because I'm one of their ambassadors but because I truly do love Memebox.  I visit their website daily to check if there's any updates.  Haha.  Yes, I'm obsessed. :/

Anyways, I've tried lots of products from Memebox's XoMemebox and I'm Meme brand and love all of their lip products so I was pretty excited to try these lip liquids when they arrived.

Recent Macy's Buy - FREE 7pc gift set with Lancome purchases over $35 & more gifts with $70+ purchases! GREAT Steal!

Hello!  So about a week ago, a Macys newsletter magazine thing came in and on the back was an awesome Lancome FREE 7pc gift set for purchases over $35!  You could get 3 more free gifts when you spend over $70.  This gift set started earlier this week and is while supplies lasts.  On Aug 14th-15th ONLY they'll also be giving out a free blush brush with the gift set.  Which is why I waited until the 14th to get my set.  Haha.

I went to Macys earlier this week with my sisters to swatch the samples of the set and I fell in love with the warm lipstick and blush set BUT I seriously could not find anything to buy from Lancome!  I already have a few makeup products from Lancome and they're not really anything special.  BUT you can never go wrong with a high end foundation. :)  I searched for a foundation but just couldn't find any that I like and I really love my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation so...  I thought I would just pass this gift set but I went home that day and spent hours looking at the Macys site to find reviews on products and decided to go with a skincare product.

I ended up getting Lancome's Eau Fraiche Douceur Micellar Cleansing Water ($38).  As if I don't already have enough cleansing products. (-_-)   I know... but I recently just finished my cleansing water from Etude House and am using my favorite cleansing water from Insobeau.  It works sooo good that I don't even want to use it.  Haha.  Do you guys feel like that too?  Or is it just me?

Ever tried a mousse mask? Too Cool For School EGG MOUSSE Pack Review

Hello!  In my last post, I said I will be posting a review on Too Cool For School's Egg Mousse Pack well, here it is! ^__^  It took longer to post this because I did two photo sessions.  The first group of photos didn't satisfy me enough and were really pixelated.  This time around, the photos turned out A LOT better.  Anyways, enough about the photos and back to this wash off mask that was super fun to try and experiment with.

This is only my second Too Cool For School product I've ever tried from their brand so I'm new to their products and don't really know much about their brand in general but I do see them all over online shopping sites and boy do they have one of the cutest packagings ever!  I did a little bit of research of their brand and so here's a little info if your also unfamiliar with their brand.  

Too Cool For School is a Korean brand targeting young women between ages 16-25 years.  They provide basic makeup that are packaged cutely and decorated with fun designs at somewhat affordable prices.  The brand name is also not what you think it is.  Most people would think the school in "Too Cool For School" is the actual school we go to to study, but it's actually representing a school (group) of fish.  Meaning they're the coolest out of the group, being different and unique.  I read the meaning for their shop being decorated the way it is somewhere online and after reading their description it didn't seem to be that creepy as it was when I first saw images of their shop. :)  They're a pretty cool brand.

I recently JUST found out that they're available on Sephora!  Omg!  Kbeauty is really hitting the states now a days. >_<

One thing I want to know is, why do they have London and New York printed below their brand name when they're a Korean brand?  Maybe it's just this product?  Looking at my other item from Too Cool For School it seems that it's just this particular item that has it.  Or maybe it's their whole egg line that has it?  I don't know because this is only my second/first product from this brand/egg line.

EDIT!:: I've fond my answer!  Too Cool For School was conceived and designed in New York City.  The first artist for collaborative packaging was actually created in London. :)

Fast & Easy 5 Minute Cat Eye Makeup Look in Less Than 10 Steps + Mini Circle Lens Review

Hello!  Long time no tutorial!  ^__^  I wanted to do a quick makeup look that you can do in 5 minutes.  I figured everyone has their own makeup base routine and what not so I didn't include that.  Okay, I lied.  Maybe not actually 5 minutes but maybe 10 minutes if you include my skincare process and base makeup. ( >.< )  I went with simple eye makeup that can match any lip color.  Hope you enjoy :)

LotusLashes #504 & #311 Mink Fur Lashes Review

Hello there!  I have been waiting forever to share these mink eyelashes with you guys!~ :D I've always loved false lashes ever since I found out about in 6th grade.  Oh my gosh, I'm getting sooo old.... They're my ultimate makeup accessory.  Anyways, Lotuslashes recently sent me two of my favorite pairs from their mink lash collection.  Thank you Lotuslashes!  Lotuslashes has three different volume types; light volume, medium volume, and high volume.  I choose lashes #504 Medium Volume and #311 Light Volume.

If you don't already know what mink eyelashes are, they are made from cruelty-free mink and lightweight, no fuss and great for people with both sensitive eyes or contact wearers.  They are reusable up to 25 times, depending on how good you take care of them.  What's the difference between synthetic and mink lashes?  Well, mink eyelashes have a natural shine that synthetic lashes cannot duplicate, does not bother the eyes, not as heavy and lasts wayyy longer.

Stay tuned until the end for a discount code! ^__^

MEMEBOX x MakeupByEvon Cream Matte Lipsticks #HDREADY Collection Review + NEW HAIR in Process

Hello!  Today I'll be introducing you guys to Memebox's new collaboration with MakeupbyEvon, who is a self taught makeup artist youtube beauty guru.  I am surprised to see that there are barely any blog posts about this makeup collaboration with Memebox (couldn't find any reviews, I was debating whether to get the MakeupbyEvon skincare & makeup box or the Botanic Farm Box.  I ended up getting the Botanic Farm Box and I'm super happy with it.  I will try to finish that post as soon as possible. ^__^ ).

The whole makeup line consist of two contour palettes for lighter and darker skin tones and three cream matte lipsticks from the Marsala color family.  Evon actually chose to go with Pantone's color of the year, Marsala which is perfect for us ladies who are warm-toned! The ingredients are listed on the website which is super helpful for those who have sensitive skin.  I was sent the three cream matte lipsticks as a gift and thought I would share them with you guys. :)  Thank you so much again Memebox! ( >_< )  Stay tuned for an exclusive discount code!

The packaging of the box sort of reminds me of Anastasia Beverly Hills packaging.
Love how they have the colors peeking through.

I really like how the color on the box is super close to the color of the actual product.
And for the first time in forever, I could read what's on the bottom.  Usually there would be a stamp printed on top, so glad it doesn't have that anymore.

Hello!  Today I did two makeup tutorials of Korean and American Makeup.  Just a heads up I'm not a professional so my technique and everything sucks so don't bash on me. (>_<)

Korean Make Up
