FACEFLUX: Multi Lip & Cheek 01 Pink Cherry.

image

Annyeong haseyo! Here’s something that can make you blush in a natural makeup look kind of way. A lip tint is like the super~est essential makeup tool in any Korean makeup kit or of any kikay kit cause it can add color on both the cheeks and lips!

image

I got this particular tint from Serry Mall. It’s an online shopping mall containing loads of Korean makeup goodies. To get there, just click their banner on the right side of thiz blog.

image

FACEFLUX Multi Lip & Cheek 01 Pink Cherry.

Specially formulated with Vitamin A/B/C ingredients for moisturizing, softening and for the good of anti-oxidant. With the liquid-gel formula that contains a large amount of water, this silky touch tinted stains makes your lips and cheeks radiant and vibrant.

Yeah the description needs a little bit of improvement. The packaging did contain the manufacturing and expiration date which makes up for the engrish.

{Characteristics:}

  1. Moisturizes, anti-oxidant, healthy (Vitamins A, B, C)
  2. Silky feel
  3. Very moist gel-type
  4. Very strong coloring tint

Etude House: Precious Mineral BB Cream Cotton Fit SPF30/PA ++ Honey Beige W24.

image

Annyeong haseyo!!! I spent a great day today <3 BUT SPENT MY MONEY IN THE WRONG MALL huhuhu </3 Shangri-la why did you have a sudden 2NE1 promo without telling me </3 If I knew </3 If I only knew </3 oh well papel at least I got to jump start my 5 piece French wardrobe attempt hihi <3 Will post more details about that soon, but for now~ A BB CREAM REVIEW <3

image

The Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Cotton Fit SPF30/PA ++ was launched last year and I got this only a few months ago because I was still loving the Bright Fit <3 

image

This time around, instead of carrying 4 shades of bb cream the Cotton Fit carried only 3. N02 Light Beige, W13 Natural Beige and W24 Honey Beige. I chose W24 Honey Beige which is the same bb shade with my previous Bright Fit. But I did notice that even though the shade names were the same, the shades for the Cotton Fit are a bit lighter than the Bright Fit.

image

3 Efficacies: Whitening & Anti-Wrinkle, Anti-Darkening.

This all-day pearly bright skin BB Cream perfectly glides onto skin providing clear and bright complexion with a smooth, cotton-like powdery finish for flawless skin.

MeToday: Frozen Summer + Hayan Korea & Etude House PH Packages.

image

Annyeong haseyo!!! SUMMER SUMMER HEAAATTT! Omo the heat is so draining. So here are a few activities that my super happy friends and I did to stay off the heat.

^Those are candies by the way! <3 Made In Candy candies in action!

image

Do some malling, and we did! <3 Well you could definitely use a treat after studying two whole sems! Hihi <3 My personal quote to make me feel better about shopping haha. It doesn’t matter if you’ll be window shopping or do some real hardcore shopping cause you’ll definitely feel cooler when inside the malls~ <3 hihi at least I do! <3 Aircon!! (^-^)/

Oh and I just posted a Canmake Tokyo by Somera Intro post a few days ago and I just couldn’t help myself from going back. Got their super fab Face Brush (P600.00) and their Lash Care Essence (P450.00). The pretty pretty jacket is from Uniqlo…. ice skating later on… didn’t bring any jacket… no problemo! Ahhh And it’s a hoodie perfect for summer too! It has UV CUT (UPF40) meaning that it has UV filtration features! <3 It will take 40 times longer to get sunburned with a rating of 40. It’s made of Supima Cotton too <3

image

After we finished malling, the next great step was to eat. Hihihi kimchi!!! We were fans of Kaya, a Korean restaurant, and we wanted to know if it still tasted like before </3 I like spicy dishes and I can’t eat them when the room temperature is crazy hot, so eat these in the mall hohoho

image

Ordered a bowl of bibimbap and ramyun. The side dishes really are the best <3 hahahaha my fave is the kimchi strips at the middle. The bibimbap was ok~~~ but not like before huhu.

image

At trip to an Ice Cream Bar is definitely a must when it’s this hot! After lunch we headed out to SM Aura to try the Magnum Manila Cafe.

image

M for mmmm yummy haha.

image

One of the walls featured a letter M made out of Magnum popsicle sticks! Too bad some of the sticks were broken off…

image

The place was designed by Ed Calma. Which explains the  sleekness factor.

image

This is the Make Your Own Magnum Dessert Bar. It’s meant for take-outs but you could stay on the armchairs at the side to munch comfortably.

image

A wide variety of toppings to choose from :) Dried mangoes, chili flakes, grape nerds and such.

image

You’ll first be picking a max of 3 toppings (maximum of 3 so that it’ll stick better on the Magnum bar).

image

Then choose the ice cream flavor and ice cream coating <3

image

COOL <3 Dip it real good! After the big dip, the pleasure maker will sprinkle the toppings and ask for the flavor of the drizzle~

Etude House: Bling Bling Eye Stick #09 Golden Tail Star.

image

Annyeong haseyo! <3 AHH a day of watching Buffy! I love how she kicks vampire/monster butt in Sunnydale! I could actually see some similarities from Twilight. It’s like the author derived concepts, ex. vampire + human love, from the show :)) Main difference issss… BUFFY is way cool <3 Another difference is that the vamps in Buffy do not shimmer in sunlight but instead turn to ashes. But here’s a sure product to make your eyes shimmer this summer season!~

image

Today’s review is about the Etude House Bling Bling Eye Stick in 09 Golden Tail Star. Etude House has a nice variety of shimmery shadow sticks for us to choose from. I particularly chose this one because it could serve as a highlighter too!

Tony Moly: Delight Magic Lip Tint Balms.

image

Annyeong haseyo!!! Tonight I’ll be reviewing the four variants of the Tony Moly Delight Magic Lip Tints. These were sent by Tony Moly Ph~ Kamsa hamnida!!!

image

The packaging is almost the same as the Berry Berry Magic Lip Tints! Black cap and clear plastic base!~

image

I do like the print on top of the cap now! It’s less serious and now it actually explains what the product is (~,~)/~

image

{Features:} Argan oil, rosehip oil adds moisture and nourishment to the lips. It grants moisture and complete volume. If the lip tint touches the lips, the color will change like Magic. Lip balm + Lip Tint (2 in 1 item)

image

It has the same concept as the former Berry Berry Magic Lip Tints. Cause color changing tint balms are awesome!!!! <3
