Pony x MEMEBOX Shine Easy Glam 3 Collection: Blossom Lipsticks & Pink Bloom Eyeshadow Quad Review

Hello!  Guess what.  Pony's third season with Memebox was finally released on their global site last week Friday!  I ordered all four lipsticks (red, burgundy red, pinky-orange, bright pink) and one eyeshadow quad right when I got home.  There is a total of three eyeshadow quads; brown, orange, and pink.  Of course I got the pink quad.  I'm seriously impressed.
Who is Pony?  " Korean self-taught MUA and the winner of "2011 Makeup Artist of the Year Award", Pony is one of the hottest beauty icons in the industry. Her passion for beauty is evident on her YouTube channel Pony's Beauty Diary where she delivers the hottest K-Beauty trends. She teamed up with Memebox to design products that are beginner-friendly and can glam you up instantly- Shine, Easy, Glam."  Pony also has her own youtube channel, in which you can subscribe here. ;)  She's seriously one of my favorite Korean icons.

Ah, the packaging is sooo pretty! (  ^ o ^ )/  What I don't like about the packaging is that the top is easily scratched and when you touch it it leaves EVERY SINGLE FINGER PRINT.  It's one of my pet peeves when the packaging it like that.

The box of her products are super cute too!  It's girly and perfect for spring.  I'm surprised that the ingredients are not in English.  Nothing is in English expect for the shadow names and the palette type.  It's not a big deal to me but It maybe to some people.

Stylenanda 3CE Waterful Foundation Nude Beige & Cream Blusher Baby Peach Review

Bonjour mon amies!  ( ^o^ )/  Aujourd'hui est un compte rendu... okay I'll stop.  I took French for two years and I suck so I'll stop.  >.<  (but I hope to continue!)  Anyways, hello.  Today is a review on the long awaited Stylenanda's 3CE Glossing Waterful Foundation in Nude Beige and Cream Blusher in Baby Peach.

If you don't know what 3CE is, you're crazy and not into Korean Cosmetics.  But that's why you have me to explain and get you addicted. :)  HAHAHA.  3CE stands for 3 Concept Eyes and is Stylenanda's cosmetic line.  They started off as a fashion store in Korea and started to expand big time.  They released their cosmetic line in 2009 and it was a PRETTY BIG hit.  Their things are a bit expensive but if you compare it to other brands it's not that bad...? :/

Here's a bit of a description of their 3CE brand:
"3 CONCEPT EYES makes fashionable ladies shine with three kinds of attractive eyes; pink, orange, and beige.  Any one can experience a special make over with the various spectrum of modern colors about creative unique impression."

They do have a site in English! (yay!)  Shipping is $20 and I know I do not want to pay for that.  (-__-)  I could of bought another lipstick from them!  Haha.  But for orders over $100, shipping is only $10 for USA orders (depends on where you live).  I bought these two products from yesstyle but they no longer have these products on their site.  BUT guess what.  One of my favorite sites, Memebox has it on their site ON SALE.  The Waterful Foundation is usually listed $30-40 on other sites but it's on sale for $25!  It's not going to get any cheaper so I highly recommend you get it there.  (Oh my gah, Memebox is killing me.  They released a value set featuring 3CE lip lacquer in Dahlia.  Totally worth it).  They also offer free shipping over $30.


**By the way these products are authentic.  Please be very careful to not buy fakes on ebay or any wholesale sites.  If the price is too good to be true, it's most likely a fake.  Trust me, I bought fake 3CE lip pigments once.  Gosh, I was naive (still kind of am). /sigh.**

Nylon x MEMEBOX - Sweet 16 Eye and Face Palette Review

Hello!  I know it's been a long time since my last Memebox post.  But guess what!  Memebox recently collaborated with Nylon for their 16th anniversary and created a face and eye palette called Sweet 16, #itgirlpalette.  Here's a bit of a description of the palette:

"#ItGirlPalette is NYLON’s special gift to its readers in celebration of their 16th anniversary. All colors were carefully picked by NYLON’s senior beauty editors with a strong emphasis on versatility and uniqueness. Each color packs a punch so you can amp up the night with just one shade, or blend your favorites to create a custom look! This palette is a must-have for all gals that are edgy, trend-setting, and f***ing awesome. Cruelty Free."
 It's Spring break and I was not expecting a package expect for my monthly Uniqso order.  My mom came home and grabbed the mail on her way in.  There was a package for me!  It was from Memebox and so I was like huh?  I didn't order anything.  Turns out they sent me their new palette with Nylon to review.  They also sent cute little samples.

I received three samples of Skin79 bb creams.  I own three of them and they aren't my favorite.  I think my favorite would be the gold and orange bb creams.  I also have the hot pink one and I seriously do not know why it was such a big hit back in the days.  Anyways...on to the palette.

All ingredients are listed on the back of the box.

What kind of circle lens are best for what kind of look? 3 different lens, 3 different looks.

Hello!  I know it's been a super long while since I've done a circle lens post so today is going to be about what kind of makeup look I did with different colored lens.  If you noticed I'm usually wearing grey or brown lens.  Rarely any blue, greens, purples, pinks, or reds.  But today there's a green pair of lens I'm reviewing! :D

All lenses are from Uniqso and are always in my most honest opinion.  They recently added some new lens so check out their site! :)

Oh my goodness, I think these have become my favorite grey lenses.  These are GEOLIC Euro Celine Grey and are seriously the most natural grey lens I have ever worn.  The first time I wore these lens they dried my eyes roughly after four hours of wearing them, but after a few more times of wearing them they didn't dry out my eyes.  I guess it was just that day my eyes were dry.  The lens also gives a perfect enlargement, not too big or too small.  Extremely comfortable and thin.  Sad that these lens only last three months.  I seriously am in love with the natural blend with the grey to my natural dark brown eyes.  These lens look more blue than grey, but it's okay I don't mind blue eyes either.  Haha.  Highly recommend these lens.

Okay, make up look.  When I think of grey or blue eyes I personally think about a "sexy" eye look; like a smokey eye, cat liner, dark eye shadows, dramatic lashes, ect.  It also depends on the design of the lens.  For example, two color designs are more "dolly" like and 3 (tri) colors are more natural.  Because these lens are tri colored, I went with a "darker" look.  I think these lens could also go with a light natural eye look.
