Unboxing: Memebox Superbox #41 My Cute Wishlist

Ello :3
I'm back again with another Memebox unboxing, My Cute Wishlist! ^-^; Hope you are not tired of these, but if you are, be glad this will be the last unboxing for awhile at least. I haven't gotten any new boxes this month, but still have some coming in September. :D

Anyway, this box is one of my most anticipated boxes! I added this to my cart immediately after receiving the email on it. What can I say, I have tremendous weak spot for anything cute. =u= But I'm so glad this box lived up to its expectations, because I am in love. :'D
Keep reading to see the goodies inside.~

Unboxing: Memebox #17 K-Style + Swatches

Hello~
Look what arrived in my mailbox again! Today I have another Memebox unboxing, and it's the K-Style box! If you still haven't heard of Memebox they are a Korean based beauty box company that does not offer subscriptions but have different themed beauty boxes full of Korean cosmetics or skin care products ranging from $23-$30. 

I sorta purchased this on a whim, as I should have known it was going to be more makeup related products, and I don't think I need any more at the moment. ^-^; But I'm still really excited for the theme of this box. :)
But let's just jump into it shall we? :)

The box itself is of the smaller variety.

Review: GEO BC102 Magic Brown Circle Lenses

This product was sent by www.maplelens.com, all opinions are my own.

Hi Everyone!
It's been a long time since my last post, I have been busy working almost full time since most people in my work place are on vacation now! And I'm also studying for the DAT! But I try to blog whenever I can. :D
My mini Etude House giveaway is still going on so please check it out (link in side bar) if you haven't already. :)
Recently I was contacted by Maple Lens to review some circle lenses, and I am really glad to be given this chance to try out some new circle lenses! To be honest, I am not an avid circle lens wearer, although I did have a couple of pairs in the past, I wasn't actively reaching for them at all. Mostly because they just felt somewhat unnatural. So I choose a couple of extremely natural looking ones to try and review! :D

Review: Etude House Play 101 Pencil #12, 26, 35 & 47

Hi Everyone!
Today I will be reviewing one of the most anticipated products from Etude House these days, the Play 101 Pencils! These pencils come in an extensive range of 50 shades (I want them all!), with multiple uses for each one, making them extremely versatile. Depending on their colour, they can be used on the lips, cheeks, eye-line, or on the lid as eye shadow. I got four to try it out, and so far I'm super impressed with some of them! Read on for the review and swatches. :)

The numbering on these pencils are #35, 47, 12, and 26, in the order of the boxes top to bottom.

Unboxing: Memebox Colorbox Bundle + Swatches + Discount codes

This post contains affiliate links.
Hallo Hallo~
Today I have another Memebox unboxing and swatches for you.~ 
My room is now full shades of pink with their boxes D:, and I'm not sure what to do with them, any organization suggestions? 

Anyway, this time I got the Colorbox bundle, which includes all 3 available colour boxes of red, orange and blue!
All three boxes are similar in content, as they contain almost all the same products but in different colours. This should be the last Memebox of mine for awhile, I limited myself a bit after this, but that's not to say there ain't anymore coming later on. hehe
And at the end of the post there should be some discount codes if you want to purchase anything at Memebox. :)
Please enjoy this unboxing! ^^

Review: 3 Concept Eyes 3CE Lip Pigment #Mellow Pink #Mink Beige

Hello Everyone!
After looking at the comments from the last haul post, it seems like most people wanted to see the 3CE review! I'm most excited for this product too, since they are from the well known Stylenanda clothing company, and their 3CE products looks high quality. But I think what convinced me the most was their gorgeous models wearing these lip pigments, it looks amazing on them! Let's see how they actually perform on a normal person.~ hoho
I choose two out of the seven colours that I thought were the most wearable, and can create a nice coral colour when mixed. :)

Spring Makeup Haul: W2Beauty + Testerkorea

Hello Everyone~
Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canadians. ^^
I've been on quite a spending streak for the past month or so, I blame Memebox mostly! But I also got a few Korean cosmetics that I have been eyeing for some time. I made two orders; one from W2Beauty and the other from Testerkorea, they came in at around the end of May and end of June respectively, so might as well call it a spring haul :D, so without further ado let's dive in! (Picture Heavy!)

Hello!
Today I have an unboxing of another Memebox! They just never stop do they? I was commuting today when I received an email about a new box called the "My Cute Wishlist", and you know how I can't resist anything with cute in its name. ;u; But when I got home to check it out, that darn box was sold out already! To be honest I am quite relived it was sold out, my wallet is safe for today. -u-
Anyway, thanks to Memebox for fueling my addiction by sending me this box for review! 
Let's look what's inside.~

This time the box is slightly smaller than normal, cuter and less packaging. :)

Review: Etude House Aloha V-Line Slim Maker #01 Sun Gold/ Wood Brown

Hello Everyone!
Today I have another review for you.~
This is the Etude House bronzer/highlighter compact, I've always loved Etude House products, so this purchase was a no brainer when I needed a bronzer/contorting powder to try. :D
Like always, the packaging is girly and colourful, though more often nowadays I find myself gravitating towards more simple mature packaging. This is still quite cute in my opinion. :)

Review: a;t Fox Fantasy Holic Makeup Designer Kit Jasoyup Herb Tea

Hello~
I have been away for the past couple of weeks, as I went to China to visit relatives. It was a comforting trip, but I couldn't stop thinking about that fact that I need to update my blog. ^^

So, I'm glad to be back, and today I'll be reviewing a makeup kit I've received from a Memebox (affiliate link) some time ago! I was really pleasantly surprised when I  saw this in one of the Memeboxes, the value of this kit is almost the same as the price of the whole box, around $23+shipping! Anyway there's some nice products in here, keep reading for more pictures and review.~

The packaging looks so pretty doesn't it? I love unique and whimsical designs like this.~

Review: Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint

Hai Everyone~
Hope you are having a nice day. :)
Today I want to review a product that I've had for a long time, and really love!~
There's a lot of raving reviews on this Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint already, but I just want to share my love for it too. xD

Etude House has recently came out with 2 new limited edition colours in this line, lavender and coral, and they look SO pretty, but I'm afraid the lavender won't look good on my skin tone and I already have a similar coral/orange tint from Peripera. So tempting though!~

Review: Nella Fantasia Oneday Whitener

Hello hello lovelies~
Have you ever wanted paler skin? I find the contrast of Western and Eastern cultures' view on beauty and skin tone quite fascinating. Although there are obvious variations in individuals, I do prefer paler skin on myself and do try to keep out of the sun as much as possible. :D
This product was totally new to me, I have never tried an instant whitening product, but was pleasantly surprised by it.~ 

I actually got this product from one of the Memeboxes, which I'm so obsessed with currently. =.=
Never heard of this brand before.

Review: Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly CC Tintbar #03 CC Pink

Hi everyonthime for anothfunc!
This lip product from Holika Holika iyolip tint and lip gloss in a lip crayon form!tint. eally like these lip crayons, since they are twistable and usually has a really cute design. This Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly CC tintbar is from their popular Aqua Petit Jelly line, and it's great if you're looking for a natural hint of colour without it being to noticeable. :)

Simple yet cute polka-dot design.~

Product Description
This Tintbar contains marine collagen extracts which keeps the lips moisturized all day. The CC Tintbar name comes from the temperature activated colour change ability to adjust the colour once applied on to the lips. The colour is also buildable with more coats. It is twistable and so no sharpening is needed.

It also comes in 3 colours:
#01 CC Cherry
#02 CC Orange
#03 CC Pink (The one I have)

The back.

twistable tip, the amount of product is pretty standard for these lip crayons. This Tintbar has more of a lip balm texture than a lip stick. It's more glossy than creamy.

Swatches~
The colours shows up after a few seconds by heat activation. It's quite faint, and doesn't show up much at all in daylight.


On my lips. The colour is once again very faint, but very natural looking. I like that it improves on your original lip colour by making it look less dull and add just a bit of shine.

Review
I think this lip Tintbar functions more as a lip balm that improves on your natural lip colour than an actual lip tint.

Unboxing: Memebox Superbox #9 Tonymoly

Hello~
Once again Memeboxes (affiliate link) have made me cave in to their mystery boxes! D: This is the first time I have gotten one of their Superboxes, the Tonymoly box! I just couldn't resist, I don't have much and always wanted to try more Tonymoly products, especially after reading so many good reviews and their adorable packaging!... That would be the excuse I gave myself while adding this to my shopping cart. ^^;
But to be honest I am very satisfied with this box, and glad I got it.~

This time it's the regular pink box, but it seems like they are lower quality compared to the first few boxes.

Review: Tosowoong Makeon Princess Waterproof Gel Pencil Liners Season 1

Hello everyone~
Today I'll be reviewing an eye liner set from Makeon! I must say this is one of the best eye liner pencils I've used in terms of pigmentation and longevity, so I'm really excited to share this with you! :D 
I bought this from Memebox, though I have also seen this on Wishtrend~

Although I would have preferred the tin to have a simple and elegant design like the outer box, it's cute in its own way.~

Review: Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner

Hello! 
Today I'll be reviewing the ever popular Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner! I have seen dozens of bloggers such as Astrophoria, Kittiecosmetics, and Tangerinebabi talk about this product with excellent reviews, so I was trying to use up my last toner as quickly as possible to try this out. xD

Etude House never disappoints with their colourful packaging.~

Unboxing: Memebox for Hair and Body

Hi everyone!
Today I received a package from the mail, and I knew exactly what it was, Memebox for Hair and Body!
For those who don't know, Memebox (affiliate link) is an online Korean beauty store that is known for its beauty boxes filled with full and sample sized beauty products. Although they do not tell you what's included, some of the boxes have themes like this one. It's a site worth checking out, though I do think some individual products sold on there are overpriced esp. with shipping costs, but you'll probably always get your money's worth with these boxes, and the surprise factor is also quite exciting. :)

I have actually been obsessed with these boxes, but have slowed down with splurging on them, phew. I do still have a couple coming though, so please stay tuned. :)

Review: Holika Holika 3 Seconds Starter Hyaluronic Acid

Hello!
I have another Holika Hoilka skin care review today. :)
The 3 Seconds Starter with Hyaluronic Acid is meant to be used right after cleansing the face to lock in moisture in the skin, and prep the skin for your daily skin care routine.


Short video review:


 I sometimes being the lazy person that I am, substitute my morning moisturizer for this, as it is easy, quick and gets absorbed in to the skin super quick!


"Starter does not have time to moisturize dry skin!"
That's not good advertising is it? xD

I wish all skin care products come with a pump like this, it's hygienic, and much more efficient to use!


Rubbed in

After 3 min.

Pros
-Lightweight, absorbs quickly, and great for lazy mornings.
-Moisturizing, my skin really do feel really moisturized, especially after the tight, dry feeling after cleansing the face.
-Refreshing, the watery, gel texture is cooling and feels wakes you up.
-Scent, it's a light, fresh sweet scent.
-Easy to use, cap can be easily popped off, not twisting required! And the pump dispenses an adequate amount for the whole face with one pump.

Cons
-Nothing really

Honestly, there's nothing unpleasant about this product at all for me. But please do note I have normal skin, and I don't usually get break-outs. So this may not work as well for everyone as it did for me. I do think because of its consistency, it would be great for oily skin types too.

5/5

Thanks for reading. :)

Review: Holika Holika Water March Moisture Full Cream

Hello I'm back for another small review. :)
This time it's the Water March Moisture Full Cream from Holika Holika.

I was looking for a new general moisturizer after I've finished the Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream (which I loved!), Holika Holika sent me this, and the name sounded rather familiar, so I was eager to test it out. I have been using this daily for several months now, it's a large jar and almost done with it.

Video of the product :P 








Blended.

After 5 minutes.

Pro
-Moisturizing, it definitely does what it says and keep my skin moisturized all day and night.
-Gel-like, I prefer moisturizers that are watery in texture and easily spreadable. This one does both flawlessly.
-Glass jar, this can be either a pro or con. But I do prefer the luxury and aesthetically pleasing look of it sitting on my desk. It also has some circular designs which makes me want to keep the jar even after finishing the product, maybe to store beads or something lol.

Cons
-Scent, while it's not an overwhelming sweetness, it does smell somewhat artificial, but this is minor.
-Sticky, while it does feel nice and refreshing when first applied, it does not absorb completely. I always have a sticky, heavy feeling on my face after a couple of minutes. 

3.5/5

Comparing this to the Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream, I prefer the latter. It out shines the former in all aspects maybe except the look of the jar.

Thanks for reading~

Review: Rivecowe Shine Blusher #3 Shine Coral

Hello, it's been quite a long hiatus~
I've been caught up with school during the past few month, and it was quite stressful. Now that I'm done with exams and most major projects, I can blog some more. First few items are from a few month ago that I will be catching up to.









Outdoor and indoor lighting.

Blended


Pros
-Blend-able. It's a very smooth powdery texture.
-Natural light colour. A subtle coral that will suit all skin colours.
-Compact packaging. Sturdy round packaging, with a puff and a small mirror.

Cons
-Too much glitter, it doesn't show up much on camera, but in real life it's very noticeable.

4/5

I'll keep it short and sweet for now while I ease myself back to blogging again. Thanks for viewing!

Also I fiddled around with Youtube and decided to upload a random video of this just for fun.~
