Fangirl Files: 2NE1 All Or Nothing World Tour Manila.

image

2NE1: Do you love me, do you love me? Do you love me like the way I love you babe?~

Me: YES I DO <3

Annyeong haseyo~ Here I am, still in a kpop dream hangover <3 Well today is Thursday anyway~ Throwback-ish (^~^)/ OMO 2NE1’s All Or Nothing concert here in Manila was so…. AWESOME!!! I was really excited to share my experience the day after the concert but my body was too sore to even type :))

image

We arrived at around 3:30 pm (gates were SAID to open at 6pm) at the SM MOA Arena to check on  the line and it was disorganized @.@ LIKE WHUT no line cues or signage. People were just all there, whether your ticket is for upper box, lower box or vip. It was pretty much chaotic because you don’t know where to stand/sit and wait (-,-*) PLUS there were no guides to assist you. ANDDD we were like caged haha! I remember my sister and I asking one person how she got inside the barricade to line up and she said, “She does not even know how to get out.” Aigoo~ 

So my sister and I just wandered around for awhile till we saw this limo <3 Did 2NE1 ride that?~

image

Cool van too <3 could you spot the 2NE1 logo? :> Ridin in style (~,~)

image

Speaking of style~ Blackjacks really know how to look good! OMO almost everyone tried to incorporate some 2NE1 fierceness into their look <3

image

#OOTD hohoho the sun was too bright men! But surprisingly it was not scorching hot! <3

image

I’ll give little rants here and there about my experience in this post too. OH MAN SM ARENA should really place signage whenever they have events like these! It would greatly help people know where they should go or where they should line up cause a disorganized line would create a lot of complaints and fights. Which happened by the way more of that drama later.

image

Oh wear comfy clothes or at least comfy bottoms. One in which you could squat and sit on the floor with because you’ll eventually want to sit on concrete after hours of waiting in line. Grab a drink too while waiting in line. Get filling drinks like those sold in Quickly because it will give you refreshment and a full tummy!

image

KKK I’m ranting again~ OMO I really despise those who can’t throw their trash properly @.@ LIKE HELLOOO, you could afford an expensive ticket but you can’t even throw your trash properly @.@ AIGOOO it was gross walking there in front of the line, well at least our piece of cement where we sat was clean. SM Arena should have placed temporary trashcans within the vicinity too cause I saw none.

image

We waited in line outside for 3 hours and they finally opened the gates at 6pm (props to SM Arena for keeping up with the schedule) but we entered the actual lobby at 7pm, 1 more hour before the show started.

image

And yes you wait in line outside and you wait again inside haha. The line was kuuuraaaaayyyyzzziiiiiii I tell ya. I saw someone crying and someone yelling. Not with excitement but with disappointment.They were crying and yelling because they said that how come they don’t have priority in line anymore. But the bouncers decided that they would strictly follow the line that they have maintained whether you have priority or none (same VIP tickets). Some were trying to cut in line, which is truly unacceptable! A line is there for orderliness and for fairness. I think there’s something wrong with your brain if you try to cut in line while others waited for a whole day just to be first in line. From that drama, you also make new stranger friends or should I say allies haha fighting for what you believe is right. Those who were properly in line joined in with the “choo choo” train so that nobody could cut in.

image

But others found a new plan and they made their own line which was funny :)) If you want to get pummeled, go ahead and disrupt the line which fans strictly followed. As my sister and I were waiting, I saw the happy faces of non-VIP holders… they had reserved seating sooo they luckily avoided the craziness of it all. I think they should have just created a separate entrance for the priority holders instead of mixing them with the non-priority holders with the same VIP standing ticket in the first place.

image

We got to enter the actual venue with only minutes left before the show started. I got giddy when I saw the stage!!! OMO we are soooo close!!! They hyped up the crowd by showing MVs of our girls <3 ahhhh it was exciting!!!
image

Finally, the lights went down and fireworks went up! OMO The countdown leading to the opening sure was fierce!!! <3 And then CL yelled~ “Philippines, are you ready?”

image

Goosebumps!!! They opened with my current favorite song~ Crush <3 AHHHHHHHH I wasn’t able to scream because I was too busy smiling hahahaha

image

SO I’ll be type-screaming, AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! My fierce ladies!

image

Then they followed it with Fire, an all time classic favorite.

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.

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.

I do admit that I am more of a K-pop girl group fan girl (thanks to the likes of 2ne1, 4minute, Miss A, etc. etc.) but I do have my K-pop boy group faves like B.A.P, Big Bang, 2PM, MBLAQ and now I add A-Jax and Block B on my list <3

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.

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 :>

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.

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!
