MeToday: I see PINK.

image

Annyeong haseyo! Whenever I see that cutesy pink store… I always get drawn in :)) Even after all these years, that pink store keeps me coming back <3 My bias to pink and everything girly has a lot to do with it! Add to the fact that the SAs at Robinsons Metro East are the awesome~st!

image

I was about to purchase an Any Cushion but then they’ve run out of stocks </3 Speaking of cushions~ have you heard about the newest launch from Etude House?

Howto: Suzy Bae Miss A Hush Makeup!~

image

*Music Cue!~* Kiss kiss kiss baby, hush hush hush baby~

Annyeong haseyo! Tonight’s howto is about copying Suzy Bae’s makeup look during Miss A’s promotion of Hush!

image

The look consists of a brown smokey eye make and hot red lips!

Let’s get started!

image

Section hair into a zigzag pattern on the side and clip it in place :)

image

Create a nice canvass by applying a layer of foundation~ I’m using Revlon Colorstay 24 Hrs 180 Sand Beige.

image

Groom and create thick straight eyebrows by using Nature Republic’s By Flower Auto Eyebrow #3.

image

Grabbing a highlighter, do the T trick~ Create a T shape on the eyelids, and just concentrate the highlight on the middle part.

image

With a brown shadow, Hayan No. E502 Artistic Crystal Shadow, create a triangle like this^ at the outer corners of eyes and apply the same brown shadow on the lids. Apply some on the lower lash line too.

The interview proper. Hyojun stares^

The Face Shop: Make Me Star Waterproof Gel Liner 06 Celebrity!~

image

Annyeong haseyo! Make me star… make me star :)) make me STAR?!!! Adding the letter A won’t hurt! But I guess, let us focus more on the essence of the product! The goal is to make us stars ~(^-^)~

image

I also have a little story about this~

One time I dropped by their store at SM North… Well I never expect great customer service there… It’s just that I find their SAs uncourteous. YUP cause I always experience a great deal of hate stares whenever I enter their store. Maybe because I look too much of a school girl, or cause my hair is messed up due to the commute or cause I look like I can’t afford any of their stuff. They really judge base on appearance and I HATE IT! This is not just a one time experience but I ALWAYS experience the stares @.@ The time I bought this, the SAs stared again then proceeded casually to putting on the ‘testers’ of makeup on their faces. They are more concerned on having a made up face than to help the customers. And whenever I would ask for assistance they would make up excuses @.@ AIGOO WAI ARE YOU GUYS LIKE THAT??? After my call for help, they would continue on with their makeup, chatting, laughing -.- I see no effort when it comes to customer service. Which is why I seldom, seldom buy products from them. WOOOH~ Now that’s done.

Let’s be thankful that their makeup products are great enough to over power their rudeness.

image

The Face Shop Lovely Me:ex Make Me Star Waterproof Gel Liners come in 8 different colors :D 01-06 are meant for lining the upper eye line and 07-08 are meant to create sparkling bottom eye line eye makes :>

image

The name also contains the word STAR, which just means that the liners would have a little bling bling in them :D

Etude House: Tear Drop Liner 01 White Tear!~

image

Annyeong haseyo! It’s the last day of 2013!~ Let’s all prepare and get ready to welcome 2014 with a sparkling bang! And to cap off the year, my final review for 2013 will be about Etude House’s Tear Drop Liner 01 White Tear!

image

K-idol makeup is not complete if there are no glitters under the eye line :> And this look is super fun to sport! See how Minzy, Bom, Tiffany and Hyuna wear a line of glitters under their eye line complimenting the strong and feisty eye make!

image

And probably the most notable K-pop star who sports this look is none other than SNSD’s Jessica Jung! <3 Princess vibe indeed!

image

Kkk~ The print already faded XD But the product still looks so kawaii <3 The “tear” shaped bottle is topped off with a long and functional brush tip applicator.

Tony Moly: Star Secret Body Balm!~

image

Annyeong haseyo! Psst~ I have a secret!~ Have you ever wondered how come the skin of our Korean idols shimmer and glow even when you are watching them LIVE?

image

Well, Tony Moly let’s us in with a secret. They use a body balm that creates a “shimmering effect for a 3D body line.”

image

This was sent by Tony Moly PH last Christmas, and it’s perfect for this sparkling holiday! *Good thing it expires only after 12 months upon opening :)

image

Ingredients^ A lot of good stuff in there!

Etude House: Color Pop Shine Tint #04 Coral Pop + Bling in The Sea Proof10 Bling Eye StickBL601 Blue Wave!~

image

Annyeong haseyo! Today’s review will be about “magical" things from Etude House! These two where included in the press kit which I got in one of Etude House’s event (Princess Academy).

image

The first one is Etude House’s Color Pop Shine Tint #04 Coral Pop

image

The packaging reminds me of retro prints! Snazzy!~

image

Colorful + Fun + Trendy = Color Pop!

This is a 3-in-1 magic gloss tint that glides on in a perfect combination of smoothness and shine, with a lip stain formula that provides vivid color and long-lasting shine.

image

The shade I got is #04 Coral Pop.

image

Even though the box exudes cuteness~ the product itself was pretty plain looking. The box actually looks better… :))

image

Looks so plain and the lettering makes me dizzy~ @.@ hypnotic~ I wished that they adapted the packaging of their other tints!

image

{Howto:} Use tip to gather and apply tint. Apply extra layer for added coverage.

image

The sponge tip applicator is nicely built. And the shape of the tip is great! It scoops up a decent amount of product and feels just so soft on the lips ^-^

image

It’s slightly bent so that application is easier~ :) The scent reminds me of the orange twin pops!!!! <3 Reminds me of an Ice Popsicle!!! Too bad that it doesn’t taste like it :))

image

I am so impressed with the coverage of this! Even though the color is very subtle the color payoff is superb! My super pigmented lips got covered! Smoothness check! Shine check! It’s lasting power is not that amazing cause it transfers easily, maybe because of its gloss properties.

I do have a slight concern with the product~ upon applying it on my lips I feel a tingling sensation that fades~ But it still bothers me cause it happens every time ~,~

image

I love using this more as a cheek stain than a lip stain~ kekeke it gives a nice peachy orangey stain on cheeks :> And because of its liquid-creamy like consistency, you have time to blend it nicely.

image

You could choose from 5 shades from the Color Pop Collection! Pretty shades that play with the pink and orange hues.  7 grams of product will expire 12 months after opening and costs 478 pesos a tube!

NO CARD NO ENTRY :))) Oh the perks of having a membership card <3 First blood to all the items marked 20% off!!!

image

Wasn’t able to buy all the things in my shopping list cause they were not available :,( boohoo~ But at least I was able to save so much because of the 20% off!!! <3

image

Got a letter from Etude House’s new Alphabet Masks <3 Their concept is really CUTE and SMART!!! If they had all the letters, I’d buy the letters E,R,I,K,A <3 And paste the packaging on my wall :))) Great as gifts too! H,A,P,I B,D,A,Y :)))) or if you have so much money you could spell it completely :D K for Korean Ginseng!

Yakson Myunga: Korean Skincare Esthetic Salon!~

image

Annyeong haseyo! A few weeks ago I was able to have my second visit to Yakson House! <3 It has been such a long time… so I got lost XD SORRY Director Kim~~ I was late @.@ MAKATI is like a foreign land to me :)) If you drop me off Ortigas, I could manage and memorize the ins and outs… but in Makati I always get lost -.-

image

So I decided to ride a taxi and laughed so hard when within less than 5 minutes I arrived at my destination.

image

They have several branches in South Korea, Japan, New York City and one here in the Philippines!

image

Yaksonmyunga for the Skin.

The healing house is the key to being in good shape. The special Bone therapy of healing house for face slimming can be done without plastic surgery. Yaksonmyunga has been transforming people since 1979.

image

Say hello to Chairman Lee Byung Chul~ He is the one who created Yakson House’s bone therapy! 

image

So what is bone therapy?

The bone therapy is a new field of an aesthetic therapy that was created with the combination of bone treatment. The bone therapy uses the hand pressure to stimulate the blood flow efficiently. Those stimulated blood flow then will help in healing, provide nutrition and clean wastes of the body. The bone therapy is a natural therapy that will give one, a healthy beautiful face and body.

image

Their interiors did not change <3 Still reminded me off Korean Dramas!~

image

image

image

Some of their clients are 9Muses’ Eunji and  Minha, Secret’s Zinger, Crayon Pop, KARA’s Koo Hara, RaNia, Brown Eyed Girls’ Narsha.

Hayan Korea: Glitter Lip Gloss!~

image

Annyeong haseyo!!! :D Time for a product review (^-^)/~ This time its from Hayan Korea :) I personally picked it because I’ve never owned a red lip gloss! I have already tried pinks, violets (YUH when I was younger violet glosses were in XD), clear ones, glittery ones but never a RED ONE! ^_^

image

Hayan Glitter Lip Gloss. Natural Lip color is enhanced and stays beautifully shiny for a long time. It leaves a dewy consistency as it locks moisture in, keeping your lips highly moisturized for hours. It glides as easily as it moisturizes and softens lips for a beautiful natural look.

image

Ingredients^ aigooo paraben -.-

image

They only had 4 shades available when I went there. And I wished that they named this cutely :D Like Vampire Red or something like that cause the name was a code… and the code was~ Code No. T301

image

It came in this simple and sleek lip gloss tube :)

image

The product is surprisingly not as sticky as a normal lip gloss! I find it moisturizing than sticky! (But it is still sticky but not as annoying) It feels just so good on the lips when applied and it doesn’t feel heavy too! I hate the feeling when you could feel that you are wearing makeup :)) Do you get what I am saying? :)

Holika Holika: NOW IN THE PHILIPPINES! Chapter Two~

image

Annyeong haseyo!!! I’m back with Chapter Two :) (Here’s Chapter One)  And in this post, I will share to you the interior and all the CUTE WHIMSICAL products that Holika Holika Ph has to offer :D :)

image

The boutique is located on the second floor of SM Fairview, right infront of Uniqlo and beside SM Department store.

image

The boutique is overflowing with different shades of violet! Which was far from what I have imagined!~

image

Oh and it was just so delightful to see Park Shin Hye in a beauty ad again <3

image

Omo XD I love taking photos with standees! Here’s another one with Jung Il-Woo! :D

image

The store blessing happened at around 11 am in the morning :)

image

image

With fellow bloggers each holding a candle stick :)

image

Then shortly after the store was officially opened to the public! :D

image

We were given these cherries to eat while inside the store! OMO THESE WERE GOOD! Does not taste like the normal cherries at all!

image

Ok this is the interior that I kinda expected :)) A Holika Holika store in Korea kekeke It looks so ‘witch craft~y’ and whimsical <3

image

And the store here was mostly decorated with butterflies and in a purple color scheme~

image

Well I could still feel some whimsical touches here and there :)

image

I especially loved their use of bent metal sheets for their labels :D

image

And look at that ceiling design! :D Awesome <3

image

Mrs. Belinda explained that the store was designed with butterflies all over because they wanted to instill metamorphosis. A beauty transformation!

image

Oh and a Jung-Il Woo fan would be delighted to see his photos on the shelves :D

image

Cute shopping baskets :D hihihi

image

And their islands were in this oddly designed counter face that reminded me of purple marshmallows :))

image

I’d say that they arranged the items and products really well! The makeup products on one side, skincare lines on the other, nail polishes, eye makes and face bases, were also grouped together so it was not hard figuring out which ones are for which. Plus almost 90 percent of the products had their corresponding English description and price! So kudos to that!

image

Here’s Mr. Jonel (of http://www.joneluy.com/ the awesome man who sent the invite and who gave the best blogger treatment!) introducing the lovely Mrs. Belinda Valentino, the President of Anibela Corporation and master franchisor of Holika Holika in the Philippines.

image

She gave a brief yet informative talk about Holika Holika, what the brand is, why the interior is designed like so, and the products that were of highlight!
