Maybelline Volum' Express Hyper Curl Cat Eyes Review

Hi, belles!

I rarely use mascara to be honest. Most of the times, I just curl my lashes and then go out. Well, it takes much time to apply mascara (and I don't have that much time every morning) so I only curl it. I just need that effect of opening my eyes a bit more, and curling it is the best way for me. But when I do have much time in the morning or whenever I want to wear mascara, of course I will wear it. And this time, it's about one of Maybelline's infamous mascaras collection which is Maybelline Volum' Express Hyper Curl Cat Eyes. I decided to take this one after watching a makeup tutorial video from jungsaemmool and I said to myself, "Why not try it?"

5 Favorite Beauty Vloggers!

Hi, belles!

There is always a start of everything. These people helped (and are still helping) me a lot when I just got into beauty stuffs. So here are they (in no particular order). I love their channels equally. *throwing hearts*

Weekly Skincare Routines!

Good makeup comes from healthy skin. Like I said in my previous post, I preferred natural looks to heavier looks, so that's why I take skincare seriously.

My Thoughts on Makeup!

Hi, belles!

So, one day, when my mom and I were watching TV, I suddenly asked her out of nowhere, "Why do Korean artists' makeups look so good? Unlike the usual heavy makeup, it looks like they are not wearing any."

"Where did you see them?"

"Internet... and TV."

"Oh come on." She was saying that as if TV and internet manipulate their faces so that they look like they are not wearing any makeup on cameras. That wasn't the answer that I needed. Like... seriously.

Holika Holika Miracle Real Skin Finish - Normal/Dry Review

Hi, belles!

So, I got two samples of Holika Holika Real Skin Finish when I bought some stuffs back then. I don't know whether it's a primer, CC cream or anything. Holika Holika official website says that it's a multi cream. Just fyi, there are also "나비크림"  words in the title which translates into "butterfly cream"....... Okay, I will just put it under base/primer tag. (In the official website, this product is placed under skincare (special care to be exact) though.

Revlon Photoready Concealer in #003 Light Medium Review

Hi, belles!

So, this time I'm not going to review another Asian product. Yes, it's Revlon time. I'm in love with some Revlon products, and that's why I decided to try its concealer. This one is my first concealer ever fyi. The reason why I bought a concealer is because most of the times, I don't feel like wearing anything on my face to campus. So, I usually just put on basic daily skincare, apply lip balm and lipstick, and when I have some annoying spots on my face, I will just use concealer and then set my whole face with loose powder. That's it. I rarely wear full makeup when I go to campus.

The Saem Big Brother Aloe 95% Soothing Gel Review

Hi, belles!

So, I just went through super hectic and hell weeks. Well, this month is hell in general. But seriously, it was even hard to sigh. There were days when I was rushed by 4 freakin' deadlines. Yes, four deadlines in a day. Bless my papers.

Okay, let's move on! So, this time I'm going to talk about an infamous aloe soothing gel. But no, this one isn't from Nature Republic. I actually intended to buy Nature Republic one, but then I found this and it was a bit cheaper, and I was like, "Come on there are many reviews of Nature Republic's already, why don't you try other brand?" (Oh and also because its aloe content is 3% higher than NR's.) So that's why I finally bought The Saem's. But let me tell you something. Aloe soothing gels are all basically the same.

Holika Holika Honey Bouquet Lips in #2 Rose Pink Review

Hi, belles!

This time, I am going to talk about a lip product. Yes, it's about lip gloss, and the one I'm going to review is Holika Holika Honey Bouquet Lips. Well, I wanted to try some lip gloss products and ended up buying this Holika Holika one. I honestly prefer glossy than matte lip. So, yeah that is the reason why I bought this.

Skinfood Black Sugar Mask Wash Off Review

Hi, belles!

What’s the point of owning expensive makeup products when your skin cannot “accept” all those expensive things? Dead skin cells prevent makeup to stick well to your skin. So, this time, I’m going to talk about a skincare product which people usually use to remove dead skin cells. Well, it’s an exfoliating scrub! And the one that I’m going to review is Skinfood Black Sugar Mask. I bought this because I started to realize that it was important to remove those dead skin cells away from my skin, and after going through a lot of reviews, I finally made a choice.

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm Review

Hi, belles!

Blackheads. Hate. No. A big NO. Unfortunately, those are on my face.

Those who have large pores (including me) will likely experience this. Well, yeah I have large pores and yes my skin is blackhead-prone. You know where blackheads usually appear. On your nose, around your nose, on your chin… poor my skin. That’s why when you can do something to save your skin, then do it.

Tony Moly Backstage Gel Eyeliner in #1 Black Review

Hi, belles!

What’s next on my blog? Well, it’s eyeliner time! When I decided to learn more about makeup, applying eyeliner was the very first thing that I learned. My first eyeliner was a liquid one and fortunately, I succeed in applying that one, so applying pencil and or gel eyeliner became easier for me. Well, without further ado, here is my review.

Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Cotton Fit in Natural Beige (W13) Review

Hi, belles!

So, my next review is going to be about the infamous BB cream. There are seriously a lot of brands which produce many kinds of BB creams, be it Asian or Western ones. I actually discovered BB cream a few years ago, but eventually decided to get one just about few months ago. The reason why I bought this is that I disliked wearing foundation, but then I needed something as the substitute for foundation. After reading and watching many reviews here and there, I decided to buy the one from Etude House. So, is it a yay or a nay?

Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint in Cherry Red (RD301) Review

Hi, belles!

This cherry tint was my very first product of Etude House. The reason why I bought it is that I was in need of a lip stain and so I got this one (and not to mention that Sulli and Krystal from my beloved favorite group f(x) are Etude’s current endorsers :3). Well, it’s not really a lip stain though, I know, it’s a lip tint, but still it leaves some stain on your lips.

Nature Republic Hand & Nature Moisture Hand Lotion in Olive Review

Hi, belles!

So, this post will mark my very first review yeay! This post may sound a bit weird and awkward and stuff, but please bear with it. :3

Back then, I didn’t even understand when people talked about hand cream/ lotion. I thought all kind of lotion were just the same. But well, I finally understood what hand cream was and so I bought myself one.


Hi, peeps! Greetings from my bedroom!

So, I've been actually blogging for years (like... it's almost 4 years), and I've been writing random things on my blog. But then, something attracted me and I finally decided to start a beauty blog! Yes, things that attracted me were makeup and all that beauty stuff.

Here, on this blog, I want to share my thoughts on makeup just like what you guys do. I know I'm still a newbie, but well, I like trying new things and this is how I live them up. Well, let's explore the beauty world together! :)
