September Favorites & BB Creams ♥

It's time for another monthly favorties!  I can't believe it's already October... time is going by sooooo fast !  In the month of September, I tried out a lot of low-end products (drugstore & NYX).  There are still some products that I haven't used yet, but I will do a review on them as soon as I do!  When I first started wearing makeup (9-10 years ago), I started off my purchasing a drugstore eyeshadow palette (either from Covergirl or Maybelline).  I remember I was so disappointed because the eyeshadows were not pigmented at ALL.  When I applied the shadows on my lids, the colors didn't show up.  That was my first and last time that I ever purchased a low-end drugstore eye makeup.  Recently while I was browsing through Youtube beauty garu's videos, I noticed that a lot of them were using the Wet'N Wild palettes.  I decided to try it out ONCE MORE because the palette was $2.99 anyways ^_^...

Wet'N Wild I'm Getting Sunburned #334

PRO: Pigmented, pretty colors, shimmery, affordable

CON: If you accidently hit it against something, the eyeshadows start breaking apart (like in the picture above, the dark brown shadow is everywhere...) If you decide to purchase it, I recommend you to just leave it at home and use it instead of carrying it around with you in your purse.. it might get alittle messy!)

♥ Bought it from Walgreens ♥

2.  NYX -  Liquid Crystal Liner "Crystal Silver LCL 107"
3.  NYX - Jumbo Eye Pencil "Pure Gold"
4.  NYX - Jumbo Eye Pencil "Cottage Cheese"

6.  NYX - Matte Blotting Paper (50 Sheets)

♥ Bought it from ULTA ♥ SHOP

Laneige Snow Radiant Blusher #01 Snow Prism

This product is great to use for a highlighter.  I use my fingers and swatch it a couple of times and then apply it above my cheekbones.  You can use it for your nose highlighter too!  If I use a makeup brush to apply it, it's kind of sheer and not very noticable =)



It's been awhile since I've used BB creams.  Three years ago, I tried an IPKN BB cream because my friend recommended it to me.  I forgot that she doesn't have acne prone skin and have dry to combination skin.... totally opposite from me!  As soon as I started using it, my face broke out and my pores were getting worse.  It felt like the bb cream was caking off my face after a few hours of applying it.  Last month my friends showed me the bb creams that they are currently using.  They have acne prone and oily skin like me too.  They told me that the coverage is GREAT and it did not break them out. SOOOOO...I recently tried those two BB's and I absolutely LOVEEEEEE them!  One is from Dr. Jart and the other one is from The Face Shop.  They are both made for those who have blemishes, acne problems, and oily skin.

Dr. Jart BB Cream Silver Label

Overall:  ★★★★★


SPF, Whitening, great oil control for oily skin, moisturizing, light, natural matte finish, great coverage, evens out skin tones, appears light at first but it will get darker in few minutes to match your skin tone, prevents breakouts, flawless skin

♥ Bought it from PrettyandCute ♥ SHOP

The Face Shop Oil-Free BB Cream

Overall:  ★★★★☆


Oil Free, Whitening, great oil control for oily skin, moisturizing, light, natural finish, great coverage, prevents breakouts, flawless skin, affordable, good for those who wants the pale white face (like most Koreans)


Hope all of you guys have a GREAT weekend!

Korean Natural Everyday Makeup ♥

Hey guys!  I have a Korean Natural Everyday Makeup tutorial for you today!!  It's inspired my MANY Korean Celebrities and a lot of girls living in Korea.  The long eyelashes are the main focus of the eyes, and that is why I went light on the shadows.  Hope you guys enjoy this tutorial!  It's a great look for an everyday makeup! 


Products Used

1.  The Face Shop - WH004 (Cream)
2.  Too Faced - Boy Toy
3.  MAC - Blacktrack Fluidline
4.  MAC - Carbon black eyeshadow
5.  Rimmel Glam'Eyes Mascara (Extreme Black)
6.  Eylure False Eyelashes (Naturalite)
7.  MAC - Lady Bug lipstick
8.  Sue Devitt - Vanuatu Silky Blush (kind of creamy)

MAC - Lady Bug      ★★★★★

ahhhhhhhhhhhh this is my FAVORITE lipstick... LOVEEEEEEEEEEE! The color is so natural!!!

Here is a swatch of it!  If you just apply it once lighting, it's kind of sheer! 

I saw this from Ceci Magazine hehe... "How to properly remove your mascara"

1. Dampen a cotton pad with cleasing oil or a makeup remover, and place it over your eyes.
2.  Fold the cotton pad so that it covers your lashes.
3.  When the lashes are already soaked, gently wipe the mascara on them horizontally and vertically.
4.  Use a cotton swab to wipe off the mascara from the shortest lashes.  Then, rince with lukewarm water.

Hmm I really want to try this Laneige Perfect Lash Mascara!

More to Come! ♥

Collective Haul : Beauty, Accessories, Circle Lens

Hey guys!  I decided to make my first "Collective Haul" video with things that I purchased from different places (Ulta, H&M, Forever 21, Sephora, Liliesshop).  This video is a collective haul video so it doesn't include JUST beauty products or JUST jewelry... it has a mix of everything! ( Beauty products, jewelry and accessories, Korean Circle Lens)  The circle lenses and lioele lipstick were sent to me from (sponser).  The circle lense was chosen by me and so was the lipstick.  They are things that I've been wanting to purchase and try for a long time.  My reviews are 100% honest!  I do not review on products that I dislike or hate (unless I mention it). Here are some more pictures and information on about HALF of the things mentioned in the video.  Watch the video for a full version of all the products of this haul!

I LOVE all of the accessories that I purchased from H&M!  They were not expensive and the quality is great!  The two ivory ones were $3.95 each and the dark brown one was $5.95.  They have all three of these in different colors.  The bracelets are SOO pretty!  I love wearing the two ivory ones together.. it looks really cute!  Since my wrist is so tiny, it is very hard for me to find bracelets that would actually fit me and won't fall out.  These fit perfectly on me!

LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEE this! I should've bought the black one too!

Lioele Dollish Lipstick "Nudy Pink"

 This lipstick is so pretty! I LOVE the color!  It's kind of similar to my MAC - Creme Cup lipstick, but this one is alittle bit more pink and a lot more moisturizing.  My lips do not peel off and it stays on for hours!

NYX Lipgloss "Baby Rose"

Lately I've been obsessed with NYX products!  I can't believe I haven't tried NYX products until recently.  The price is GREAT and the quality is absolutely wonderful!  The eyeshadows and lipstick are highly pigmented as well.  This is the best low-end brand that I have ever tried!  This lipgloss doens't have a color to it.  It's sheer with shimmery pearls.  It's great to apply over any lipstick! *It smells good too!*

SWATCHES [NYX Baby Rose, Lioele Nudy Pink]

Bare Escentuals "Warmth"

All of you guys know how much I LOVE Bare Escentuals!  It's the only brand that doesn't break me out!  For the summer time, I like having a pale face with a baby pink blush look.  For the fall, I like wearing warm colors (Lips, eyes, face) like gold, brown, and bronze.  This product is great to use as a blush and to contour your face to define your features (below cheekbones and jaw line). 

Here is a swatch of it! Pretty right?

NEO Cosmo "Milkyway Gray"

Basic Curve = 8.60
Diameter = 14.2
Wear = 6-8 months

It's been almost 6 months since I last wore circle lenses.  I've been trying to look for a natural looking gray circle lenses to wear, which I found at!  I like how the size is not too small and not too big.  I look very scary and weird when I wear BIG ones that are 15 diameter.  I also heard that it wasn't good for your eyes if the lenses are TOO big since not enough oxygen is getting into your eyes. My hubby also likes these!  He said it makes me look like an anime character!

It comes with a contact case and the pink tool to get your contacts out! I've always used my nails/fingers to take out my contacts out of the container and a lot of the times it ripped.  LOVE THIS!

Here is how it looks in natural lighting (no flash)


Forever 21 (Jewelry)
H&M (Accessories)
Sephora (Bare Escentuals)
Ulta (NYX & Eylure Eyelashes)
LiliesShop (Lioele & Circle Lens)
