Trip to Sephora

Hey girls! ^__^ It's been awhile since I've posted; I've been busy with studying for exams and working~ ;A; But, I had some time to stop by Sephora the other day and spend some of the gift card money I have

Firstly, I've had a problem with my foundation for the longest time! I have really dry skin and every foundation that I use flakes up and makes it look so obvious and horrible. D: I looked for a super moisturizing foundation that would cover-up, but look like I'm not wearing anything. The lady offered to me a tinted moisturizer! It. Is. Perfect! :3 Here's what I bought:

It's super moisturizing, and also makes my skin look peachy and glowy! :D It was $21.

I also bought a few lashes for $8 each.

The first one is called "Elegant" and the second one is called "Flair". I actually am not super satisfied with these lashes! The band is very flexible, which is good, but I feel it's just too fragile. Here you can see:

They are very natural-looking and light-weight, I even forget they are there~ :O
Here's how they look!

For those that like super light-weight natural looking lashes, these are for you! I like a more visible lash though. You can purchase them here! Thanks for reading

Hello all! <3 Today I went shopping and this was my coord:

Jeans: Almost Famous
Top: Charlotte Russe
Wedge Boots: Charlotte Russe
Necklace: Forever 21
Here's some detail shots:

If you don't shop at Charlotte Russe, you should! :P They have a wide selection of budget-friendly clothes for all styles. They have many gyaru-friendly pieces :3 Here's a few things that I bought!

1. Cute summery dress. I know it's not summer yet, but I'm going on vacation to a hot place in the springtime, so I'll need some floaty minidresses ^__^ This one has frills on the bust, which helps small-chested girls like me. T__T
 2. Gold starry dress. Another minidress for my vacation. This would've been nice to wear during the holidays!
3. A plain button-down. Actually, I bought this at Hollister! Every girl needs a simple button-down in their wardrobe. They're a great basic that can be used to create many classy and put-together outfits.
4. A tribal print off-the-shoulder top. This isn't really my style, but I bought it anyways because I liked the colors, and it would be perfect for my vacation :D It's a very summery and vibrant light-weight top.

I also bought some accessories! Right now, Charlotte Russe is having an accessory sale, 2 for $10!

1. Simple fedora hat.
 2. Unique jewellery.
 I loved the earrings, they are FIERCE! :D Look at how big they are :O

Thanks to anyone who is reading! I really really appreciate all my readers~I know I'm not the best at this, but thank you all for reading & giving me support ^__^

Kao Biore Foaming Face Wash Marshmallow Whip

Hello, today I'll be ranting a bit about Biore's foaming marshmallow whip. It's not really a new product, and I'm sure many people already have it, but I'd like to express my thoughts on it anyway. :3

Firstly, the main... point of this product is its high-density, thick foam that won't dissolve into a watery substance! In my experience, it definitely lived up to its expectations! I loved how you only need ONE pump for your whole face.

(one pump)
Unlike a lot of foam cleansers out there, this one won't dissolve. Instead, when you rub it in, it turns into a cream that creates a unique and deep cleansing experience!It feels really gentle on your face. Another thing that makes it unique is its special no-drip formula. The only thing negative that I have to say about this product is that the foam/cream seems to evaporate quickly. I applied it to my face, and literally 5 seconds later, I couldn't see the product. However, when I rubbed the skin again, it re-appeared, and so forth.

One thing that I don't like about facial cleansers is that they often leave my skin feeling dry and tight. I loved that this one didn'tAfter cleansing, my skin felt smooth, moisturized, and refreshed! Please pardon my creepiness in the photo. :x

All in all, I was pleased with the dense, creamy foam that cleaned and moisturized my face really well! This is a great product that I'd recommend to girls with every skin type. :)

Barbie Lens Review!

Happy New Year everyone! I'll start off this new year with a quick lens review. I actually recieved these lenses a while ago but just got around to reviewing them now T_T I feel like I do too many reviews, so I'm trying to do less!

Color: Grey
Manufacturer: G&G/Dueba
Diameter : 14.2 mm
Water Content : 38%
Base Curve : 8.6mm
Life Span : 1 year disposal

I ordered these lenses from Pinky Paradise, and used a gift code. They came safely wrapped about 2 weeks later. I also recieved some hair velcros and under-eye treatment for free! ^^

Anyway, on to the lenses. I wanted a more natural-looking lens, and these definitely met my expectations! ^^ They replace my dark brown eyes with a nice light grey color. The color isn't too see-through, so it doesn't mush in with the brown. Also, I don't know if it's just my eye, but the brown around my pupil is barely visible! ^__^ Color gets a 10/10.

Without flash:

With flash:
Close up:

I did notice that the color doesn't go all the way to the outside of the lens, and you can kind of see it in the above picture. I don't know if that might bother some people!

Also, since I wanted a natural looking eye, I only got a 14.2 mm lens. This is the perfect size for me, but if you want a noticeably larger eye, I'd suggest you look elsewhere! Here's some pix of the overall look. And yes, I am wearing a Sailor Moon shirt. xD Gotta embrace my inner anime otaku! :3

To conclude, I am extremely pleased with these lenses. They naturally enlarge my eye with a light color that isn't too in-your-face, nor too subtle. Definitely get a 10/10!

Hello, 2012!

For New Year's, I spent it with a few friends in my city's downtown. A few bands were playing, including the classic rock band, The Romantics! :O At 12:00, we watched the ball drop, but I think it got stuck in the middle. 0__o Normally it explodes with confetti and stuff. Maybe it's a sign that we're all GONNA DIE THIS YEAR!

Anyways, I don't really like making New Year's resolutions because I doubt I'll be able to keep any of them.Each year, I have the same resolutions. T__T Here they are anyways.

1. Lose weight! I want to lose 15-20 pounds. I previously lost about 40 pounds (oh god), but I've been stuck in a bit of a rut the past 2 years. :/

2. Become more friendly and outgoing. Go out with friends more!

3. Dress more stylish. My current "style" right now sucks ass. I need to put more effort in!

4. Improve on gyaru makeup~ My makeup is plain and boring

5. Pick up on some Korean/Japanese. I need to learn Korean to become more "in touch" with my culture. I need to learn Japanese so that I can order from Japanese stores xD
