MeToday: Products that didn’t work out for me.

image

Annyeong haseyo! Today’s post is a collective one~ Well a collective “products that didn’t work out for me" one. I wanted to try products that are easily available in groceries and department stores when I picked these ones out. Well I did my research too! And the reviews were positive so I guess the "what works out for me may not work out for you" (and vice versa) saying really does apply to beauty products.

image

The first one~ The Maybelline New York Baby Lips Color Lip Balm in Rose Addict. I really love their original Baby Lips (the one with no tint) so I thought that I would love this as much. Well I didn’t. I was hoping for this one to smell like roses, because of the name. Instead the scent really annoyed me (-,-) smells almost the same as their Color Bloom in Pink Blossom. I hate the scent of car air fresheners </3 the over nauseating ones. The tint it gives off is pretty weak too. Well it did say translucent. 

image

I am quite a fan of their Acne Spot Corrector Gel so I wanted to try the Celeteque Acne Clearing Facial Moisturizer Gel. It worked fine at first, but after a couple of days I felt that it was not moisturizing enough. It’s a gel type moisturizer that gets absorbed easily by the skin. I am saddened by how it performs weakly on the acne clearing part. It is an acne product and did nothing to cure or prevent new ones from sprouting out. It made my skin dry and it did not provide enough moisture.

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!!!

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

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)

The Face Shop: Lovely Me:Ex I’m Shea Butter Lip Care Cream!~

image

Annyeong haseyo! I’m back with another rave review! And this one comes from The Face Shop! It’s a challenge for me to enter their store (*SAs from a branch will give me trauma to enter another branch) well their products really is the propelling reason to keep me coming back.

image

Last year, I had terrible lip chapping @.@ It was so crazy that my lips would chap with the absence of a good lip balm! My Maybelline Baby Lips couldn’t handle the extremeness of the situation. So I searched for reviews about lip balms and found so many rave reviews about how this product helped their lips stay moisturized throughout winter and how it cured their lip chapping! If it’s good enough for winter then it must be super moisturizing!

Collective Haul + Simple Ways to Reach Out To The Victims of Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan).

image

Things, things, material things, they make us happy and make our lives a little bit better. Giving yourself a reward is not a crime, it’s just right to spoil yourself occasionally. I personally like to shop cause it makes me feel good especially when I achieved something! But for me, another thing that gives the best feeling in the world is when you know that you’ve contributed to something that will make others feel better. I’ll share some simple ways wherein you could reach out to the victims of typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan, its international name) later on in this post. So for now, I’ll share a collective haul to make things a little more cheerier! (^-^)

image

Have you heard of nail tattoos? They are way cool and awesome! <3 I recently uploaded a Howto Rose Tattoo Nails on youtube~ so fun and easy!

image

I bought these at Kenko, it’s a sort of “Japan Home” style store in the sense that they sell all kinds of quirky stuff, ranging from stationery to table lamps!

image

Pretty pretty earrings <3 from S.O.A, short for Style On Air it’s an accessory brand which I truly adore! They have loads of cute accessories!!! Cat ears, skull rings, and unique pieces like these^

image

image

I fancy these types of earrings! I’ll call them illusion pieces! I have another one which I got from Cleocat Fashion (*but that one already turned silvery, cause of sweat and over usage XD) I have to retire that one soon~

image

Got these clips from Kenko also! I love Kenko!!! Oh and have you noticed my adoration for roses???

MyKoreanBoyfriend.com: SAVE or SPLURGE?!!

Products products products! And your wallet screams too! Well if you could afford to always splurge then good for you. However, there are certain items that you could save in so that you could splurge on other items! I made a checklist of things you could SPLURGE on and SAVE in

BB Creams: SPLURGE. Well there are cheap bb creams out there that works but if you would want all the amazing benefits like anti-aging, whitening, skin firming and other miraculous stuff then you would have to splurge a little more.

Blush-ons: SPLURGE. A good blush will not cake on your face and it will provide you a rosy glow rather than a clown-y glow. A blush also has one of the longest life spans in the makeup family so you could have it for a long time.

Maybelline: Color BLOOM!~

Hello hello!!!~ :> Midnight review about Maybelline’s [Lip] Smooth Color Bloom: Color Changing Lip Balm! <3 :D :)

Discovery creamy white balm that blossoms on contact with lips to create your made to measure sensationally sheer pink color. Lips look instantly revived, fresh and so healthy! Enriched with pro Vitamin E, known as a natural anti oxidant and Jojoba Oil, lips are continuously nourished making them so soft, smooth and naturally gorgeous.

Really clever concept! Blossoms on contact! :D I chose Pink Blossom because this one has more color than the Peach Blossom color :D :> *oh~~ it has SPF 16 too!

So the first color changing lip balm I tried was from Etude House called Follow Me Tint and that one was blue and changes to pink, this one changes from white to pink! :> COOL <3
