Review: Take me to Brazil palette by BH Cosmetics

Hello everyone! I hope you had a great Saturday with friends and family, drinking and eating the best and still the great vibe is going on! As for me, after so many weeks my husband and I are staying the full weekend in house doing almost nothing and to be honest I kinda enjoying that 😄 Not everyday you get the chance to sit idly with your loved one and to me it’s one great opportunity.

Anyways, as I mentioned in my one post few days ago, My husband went to a conference couple weeks ago. He went for 4 days so I was home alone and as a penalty for leaving me here, he bought me a palette from BH cosmetics😍 Guess which one is that 😉 Yup, TAKE ME TO BRAZIL!!!! I first saw that one in Amazon, and I loved it the very first time I saw it. So when he asked me which palette I want, I immediately responded with take me to Brazil palette 😘

The palette has a combination of 30 vibrant and bright colors that are bound to remind you of a colorful Brazil festival. As we took it from Amazon with shipping it cost us a total of 34000 KW.  All the colors are really pigmented but you need the right brush because with the wrong one they may look like less pigmented. So, while putting them on the lids try using a flat eyebrow brush or your fingers will work just fine. And while putting them on your crease line try to use a blending brush which is not too fluffy or stretchy. The palette has the color combination just perfect for any occasion. You will find red, green, yellow, blue, purple everything in one palette. But if you are a fan of nude makeup, you totally should avoid this one 😁😁

Here’s a look of the palette and my pictures of trying it:

As you can see even on my brown skin they are shining like hell 😝😝

As you already know I have a small youtube channel, where I sometimes post makeup tutorials, I posted there a video of me using this palette 😜 So you can watch me using this palette 😃 And here’s the link:

This video also contain the full makeup routine of the picture above and details of the product is listed on the description box.

Have a happy holiday, people 😅

Review: Elizabeth Arden eye & lip beauty perfection 

So, yesterday my husband was coming back from a conference in Jeju, and he suddenly called me from airport. He was at a duty free shop then and asking if I want something. I was like, wow, really! Since when my husband became so concern about makeup and stuff! He was roaming around the shops and telling me all the available brands, and what I want from them. Hearing all the brands I kinda got confused and couldn’t decide what I need. So, I totally let him decide saying just pick some eyeshadow.

And guess what he chose! Yup, Elizabeth Arden Eye & Lip Beauty Perfection! To be honest, I never really used anything from that brand, so I was really excited this morning when I was using it for the first time. Here’s a look of the palette:

So, it is a combination of eye and lip palette. It contains 5 creamy eye shadows & 4 lip glosses. The colors are perfect for a nude makeup or nude look. The shades are creamy, so they are not like the regular eye shadow. But they come easily in the brush and also they are pigmented in a good way. So are the glosses. But as the eye shadows are creamy it may mess in your crease line few hours later, so I will suggest to set them with a tiny bit of translucent powder or shiny eye shadow. The total cost was 33$.

So, enough talking, let’s take a look what it actually looks when you use it!

Just as I mentioned, perfect for nude makeup^^

Let me know about your thoughts of the palette, whether you used it, or if you like it or not ^_^

Hope you enjoyed the post!

Coibana Nasnon viva lipstick Review

Recently I came to know about this brand, Coibana, while browsing through famous online shopping site here, G market. I was not sure about buying them but then I saw there’s a sale (lol) snd also the color was really nice. There was an 1+1 offer from three colors: Red, Pink & Orange. I took red and pink one, named Daring Red & Lively Pink. 

Actual price was 82,000KW, while the sale price is only 10,000. Now, you understand why I had to try them, lol 😉 The package is good and they have a nice mild smell.

You can see from the swatch, the colors are pretty nice. Most importantly they stay for quite a long time. More than 4-5 hours without reapplying, even you eat in between. Highly recommended!

First shopping from Nature Republic 

Where there is a sale, you will find me always! Ha ha! So, two days ago, I was roaming around the mart, and saw a sale going on in Nature Republic. I never bought anything from them. So, just out of curiosity, I thought of give it a try. 

So, here goes the review:

Air Skin Fit Blur Pact: I broke my compact two days ago, so I had to buy one. There are two shades, I took shade number 2, the darker one, because of my brown skin. The package is good. Though they say it’s the darker one, still it’s pretty bright for me. It’s a nice compact powder but the sad thing is they didn’t provide any nice cushion puff. It’s too hard and you will surely feel a discomfort while using it to apply the compact on your face. The price was less than 13000KW. Can’t remember the exact one, sorry.

Stick Highlighter: I like this one so much! It’s just has the perfect texture of a stick highlighter, really get set on your face and easy to apply too! Price was 5600KW. A bad thing about this ones packaging is it has a plastic lid which often cause disturbance llike falling down when you open the cap of the stick. They could’ve stick the lid with the cap, so it doesn’t come out every time somebody opens it.

Pure Shine Melting Tint: I can’t remember the exact price price of this one either. Should be less than 4000 won. This one got a nice flavor, a melting texture and stays on the lips for a very long time. I love the color so much. But there’s another thing about this tint. It doesn’t have a system, where you rotate the lipstick in a direction and the part on the bottom comes up and vice versa. But a pen like system where you push the button and it keeps coming out. And here comes the problem, once you press the button it just comes out from bottom but doesn’t have a system to lower it down again. So, if you don’t know it before buying, you’re screwed like me. I kinda ruined it pushing the button so much and can’t lower it down now.

All the prices mentioned here are sale price. Here’s a pic, where I used all three, so you could see how they work!

It’s skin 5 facewash in 5000KW offer!

Hi lovelies! Hope you are all doing good! So couple months ago there was an offer going on in It’s Skin, where they offered 5 pieces of different flavored facewash in just 5000KW. Just at that time, I was running out of facewash, so I went to the store to get one.

My Korean is not that good. So, when I saw facewash in 5000 I actually thought it would be just for one. Then I got close, and saw 5pieces are wrapped together. I couldn’t even believed my eyes, so to be sure, I asked the sales lady again. Well, when she assured me, I didn’t hesitate any more to buy one, lol :p

Now the review part: 

Well, I have always been a fan of It’s skins products. They always suit me. Now when you buy 5facewashes in this less prices, surely you have to give them full marks on the price. Anyways, you don’t need five of them at once. So, I only opened the first one, “Have a ORANGE”. It really has a nice orange flavor, which I like very much. It is creamy and creates a lot of foams. This is very mild, so if you need something harsh I would not suggest it to you. Specially on summer time, after two hours, your face may feel kinda oily if you are just sitting in your room without an air conditioning system. But not that oily, just a bit. Though while using the first time when I bought it, during winter it felt like my face is drying out a bit too soon after using. Well, my skin is really sensitive, so it’s nothing serious. 

So, if you are looking for something really mild and foamy facewash, you should definitely go for it. 🙂

Easy violet eyes tutorial with Pony Memebox

So, this valentines’s day, my husband was like, “I’m going to buy you whatever you wish, just name it!” What a great chance to make your husband poor in a minute, huh! But, as I am a good wife, who knows she shouldn’t spend much of her husband’s money, so I took just an eye shadow palette from the outlet of Love, Health & Beauty near Pusan National University. (Be proud of your wife, dear husband! 😉 ) So, the palette is Pony Memebox Shine Easy Glam Eyeshadow Palette. This is a collaboration of the Memebox company with the famous beauty vlogger of Korea, Pony. So, there comes the name Pony Memebox. 🙂

While, thinking about giving a review, I felt like why don’t make a tutorial? So, people can watch me using the palette live and this will give a fair idea about the palette. 😀 So, here’s the tutorial:

Some thoughts about the palette:

It kinda felt like powdery, they surely could’ve done better. And they need to work on  the pigmentation a little more. May be I will use it when I do not want much color or coverage. The package was nice. But there was no brush. Anyways, the palette is okay. I will rate it 7 out of 10. By the way, it costed us 20,000 KRW. Which was on sale price, actual price may be 30,000 KRW.

About the tutorial, I listed all of the products I used, but still if you need to know anything feel free to ask. This a light smokey eye, but it’s perfect for both day and a night out!

I hope you would enjoy the post! Have a nice start of the week, people!

Pay day shopping : December 

So, these are the things I bought after receiving this month’s salary.

First one is IT’S SKIN CLINICAL SOLUTION SENSITIVE WATERY MOISTURIZER. It’s skin is always my favorite for their skin care products. I have a oily skin, so when it’s time to choose a moisturizer, I need to be careful. The best thing about It’s skin is their water based moisturizers. Because, for oily skin you never use oily products rather something watery. Anyways, I like it as always and would recommend for anyone with oily skin. Actual price is 18000 KW, sale price 7000 KW.

IT’S SKIN BABYFACE CREAMY LIP LINER is my another favorite from the company. The most amazing part of their lip liner is the color, which is too lovely! Bought a nude color this time and it cost me 2500 KW.

ETUDE HOUSE MY LITTLE NUT FANTASTIC COLOR EYES cost me 14000 KW. I loved the colors, they are too pigmented, most importantly they are too cute!

Here’s a swatch for you guys:

So, that’s all for today, I swear I am not coming back again, lol 😀

Good night, bye!

Review: recent shopping from Missha, Tony Moly, Club Clio and It’s Skin 

Okay, the title’s a lie, because they are not really recent, I mean not all of them. 😦 I forgot to add the review after buying  those things, but that doesn’t really matter, right? Cause I am here, finally! 😎

Anyways, let’s begin with the products from Missha.

MISSHA PETIT CRAYON LIP

I took a red color and a nude color of this lipstick. The colors are really nice, no doubt. But they are not really long lasting. Even if you try with powder coating, it doesn’t help. Especially after eating. Price was less than 7000 KW.

MISSHA LAYER BLURRING LONG LASTING PRIMER

For long lasting, this one works certainly but for better tightening of pore I would prefer the PORE COVER from the same brand. Price may be 5000 KW.

MISSA TRIPLE EYE SHADOW

This is a small box package contains 3colors. I love the colors, I even used them in two of my youtube tutorials. Only problem is the color boundaries are too small, so sometimes it’s problematic to take them in the brush. But still I would recommend them. Price: 6000  KW.

MISSHA COLOR BEAM SHADER

Well this one is more like a bronzer! But lighter than a bronzer. So yeah, it’s perfect for everyday use. You also can use for heavy makeup, may be in a increased amount, but you surely can. I don’t know the exact price, I took them on a sale, which was 6580 KW.

TONY MOLY CHEEKTONE POWDER

This is good, this is really good! Just bought it yesterday, and I liked it. Cost me only 6000 KW.

IT’S SKIN CLEANSING OIL

If you are looking for  a makeup remover, I highly recommend it. I loved the smell of it too. It’s too good. Price was 12000 KW.

CLUB CLIO PERIPERA WHOLLY DEEP JEWEL POT

I used them too in my 3rd tutorial. They are too pigmented and certainly good. But they are kinda expensive. Though when I bought them it was on sale, 2 for the price of 1. But for a single piece, 12000 KW is too much. 😦

MISSHA PERFECT CONCEALER

Missha perfect concealer is perfect for under eye dark circles and eye base. If you looking for either of them, go for it. It was very cheap, only 2400 KW.

Over all, I liked most of them. Sometimes I get jealous of my own shopping skill. lol 😛

Will be back soon, bye!

Review: Skin food black sugar mask

After moving here in Korea, many of the girls I know keep asking me about Korean skin care products. 😀 As we all know, Korean skin care products are well known world wide. 😛 Among them, the top most heard question is about BLACK SUGAR MASK of SKIN FOOD. Like how good it is? Does it actually work and etc.

Hearing the question always, at some point I got curious too. And, couple moths ago I bought one. So how’s it?

Well, this thing has sticky texture like the mask we use, but you can feel the presence of the sugar granules when you take them in your hands. The direction is written on the package and as it says, you are suppose to put them in damp face, and wash it off after 15-20minutes with warm water.

I usually keep massaging my face with my fingers while washing, because that way your dead skin cells and debris that got stuck in the pores, get washed too, as it has sugar granules, it does the same job as a facial scrub. But like them, it never leaves your skin feel dry. But I would recommend using a moisturizer after using this mask because no matter how it feels, when you wash off something of your face, you always need to use a moisturizer afterwards.

The best part of using this is, it gives you a smooth face, so besides using for your skin care, you can also use this one for preparing your face for a perfect makeup base, by using one hour before beginning your makeup. 🙂

Will I recommend this?

Definitely I would!  So, if you are planning to buy this one, go for it! Trust me, you would thank me later! 😉

So, this was all for today. I hope you enjoyed. ^_^

Bye!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 🙂
