REVIEW: Masks and Eyelashes

Product Rating : ★★★★☆

If you guys watched my daily skincare routine video, I mentioned about these face masks that I use (the korean ones).  I usually buy them for $4-$5 at the cosmetic corner at a nearby Korean grocery store.  I found a online shopping mall "Luna Beauty" that sells these for $3 BUT they are currently on sale for $0.99!!!

We look scary so decided to blur out the picture hehe. 

Sandara Park (2ne1) with her mask "nonono don't touch my mask!"

STEPS for applying sheet masks:

1.  cleanse your face
2.  apply your face lotion
3.  apply your toner
4.  apply your acne medication
5.  apply the mask sheet on your face
6.  wait 15 minutes
7.  take off the mask (face will feel alittle moist)
8.  let it dry naturally (air dry). 
Don't wash it off because that is all the good stuff for your face!

** For cooler & fresh mask, put your mask package in the fridge for about 5 minutes, and then apply it to your face.  My husband and I always do that... feels soo cooool!

For all of my makeup tutorials, "Darkness" Korean eyelashes are what I always use.  They are not very expensive, feels light, natural, easy to apply, soft, blends well, only have to trim alittle bit (depending on how long your eyes are), can reuse many times, comes with glue.  I bought this style few days ago to get the more "dolly" look.  It is alittle bit more harder (but still very natural) then the ones I use everyday from this same company.

It comes with TWO glues inside.  The white one seems to not work for me that well and my eyelashes come off.  The yellow glue works GREAT for me even though I only apply a small amount on the eyelashes (barely any).  It stays on ALL day, even when I cry. hehe

Here are the natural ones that I wear everyday from "darkness".  It feels so light and looks so natural, I can't even feel the eyelashes on my eyes.  I like how it is shorter in the corners and gets longer towards the end. 

Here is a comparison of the "natural everyday eyelash" and "dolly look eyelash".
I wouldn't recomment wearing the dolly one everyday because they are alittle more harder and dramatic. =) It is a great eyelash if you want to go for the "dolly look".  Overall, the darkness eyelashes are all GREAT!

These eyelashes are also sold on Luna Beauty website for sooo much cheaper!  I also buy these eyelashes from the cosmetic corner for $5 (with tax), but on this website they are selling them for $2.95 - $3.50

They have A LOT of other great korean beauty products, so you should definitely check it out!

I'm ending this post with a picture of Taeyeon from SSND.
I absolutely love her hair in this picture! (Her hair color and front braids)


Personality by your lipstick shape ♥

I saw this online and thought it was pretty cool!  I am the last personality!


My Favorite MAC Lipsticks

Product Rating : ★★★★★
(Viva Glam Gaga Lustre, Creme Cup, Ravishing, Speed Dial, Lady Bug)

(Viva Glam Gaga Lustre, Creme Cup, Ravishing, Speed Dial, Lady Bug)

These are my top 5 favorite lipsticks from MAC.  I love MAC lipsticks because they stay on almost all day, very light, and applys very smoothly.  I usually don't buy red lipsticks, but this one from MAC "Lady bug" is very sheer and looks very natural.  I wore this lipstick on my natural red lipstick video back in April. =)  The lipstick that I am currently wearing EVERYDAy is the "Ravishing" - one in the middle.  It is a very light and natural coral color and it looks great with everything!

I was watching Hyuna's (현아 - 포미닛) ^^ new music video "Bubble Pop"  and I immediately fell in LOVE with her makeup with the pink lipstick!!  I don't really look good with red lipstick so I choose not to do the tutorial on her main jacket look (red lips).  I enjoyed doing this makeup tutorial and I hope you guys like it too!!!

I don't know why.. but the first thing that came up in my mind when I watched this music video was "Lee Hyori" -_-

1. Too Faced - Cocoa Puff & Honey Pot
2. MAC - Cork
3. MAC - Tempting

omg.. I am in loveeeeeee with this pink lipstick that I purchased from Mac. 
It looks great with my everyday makeup.  It isn't TOO hot pink and
it look great with my skin tone color!

Here is a swatch of the MAC - Speed Dial

Ehgyo Ssal "애교살" - the kind of puffy part under their eyes. 
All the top korean PRETTY celebrities are known to have these.
It's different from bags and dark circles that you get from when you are tired.
A lot of people from korean get surgery to make ehgyo ssal under their eyes.
People with BIG eyes normally have this ^__^

My husband has ehgyo ssal AND a beauty mark.. eh.. not fair!!! ㅠㅠ

RED SHIRT :  Forever 21 (I bought it last year)
