Etude House Product Review!

Hello all! Today I'm going to review a few products from the Etude House line. I made a video about it but I'm also making a post because I have pictures that'll show the products better on my skin.

First up is the Etoinette Heart Blusher in Coral. I've picked this colors because I figured the pink one would be too pink on me. Not gonna lie, the pigment isn't something that shows up well on my skin unless the sun hits it right that's why I would recommend it as a highlight.

As you can see,it's not something you can see clearly (and I was also wearing a highlight underneath so I guess this isn't fair lol)

I do have to warn you that if you pack it on too much it'll make your face look super shiny.

Next up is the Etoinette Crystal Shine Lip in PBE001. I was expecting this to be more brown than it was but it's still not bad. It's a nice subtle nudish pink that looks quite lovely if I do say so myself. It's very smooth and doesn't have a sticky feel to it at all, very velvety. I think after a few hours the color does fade to a less vibrant pink

In the last picture I'm wearing the color on my bottom lip and nothing on my top lip so you can see the difference.

The other product I bought was the Nymph Aura Volumer Baby Glow Mist, I don't think I can do a true review on it because I've only used it once (which was today). I can say that it's very perfume-y so if you are sensitive to smells then don't buy it. When you first smell it it has a nice faint floral smell but if you spray it more than once it will smell very strong.

Sorry I don't have any pictures of the spray :(

Hope you guys enjoyed the review and found it helpful! Have a happy and safe New Year and happy holidays! :D

Gyaru Eyelash Advice

Hello ello!

I've made another video to better help people with eyelashes on their Gal journey. In the video I talk about where to get eyelashes and which style of eyelashes you should use for different sub-styles of gyaru. I stupidly left out information about bottom lashes *DERP* but I can write a post about them if you'd like the assistance :D

If you have anything you'd like to ask me, feel free to do so in the comments below or message me on my facebook account or even on the video itself. Good luck!

Products I Regret Buying

Check out my video!

To sum it up, I regret buying orange color lip colors, bright pink lip colors, Femme Couture bronzer, Wet N' Wild H20 liquid eyeliner, Stila Lip Glaze, Dream Nude Air Foam Foundation by Maybelline, Hard Candy All Lid Up cream eyeshadow, Blackheart liquid glitter liner, Wet N' Wild MegaProtein mascara, and Andrea Modlash eyelash glue in clear. Also I listed Garnier BB Cream for the consistency.

NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil Review

Hello darlings,

Today I have for you a review of one of the new products I bought. This season has brought on an urge that I don't usually get and that is the urge to wear lipstick. So I've spent the last two months looking at Youtube videos and picking up random lipsticks from my local drugstore in order to find my perfect shades (but we'll save those other colors for another post). Along with wanting to find good lipsticks that compliment my skintone, I've ALWAYS wanted to find a nude lip color. All the ones that I found at my local drugstores have either been too pink, too orange, or too brown and after noticing that I went to Sephora and asked one of the consultants to help me find a color. I tried out the NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil and OMG...it's soooooooooooooooooo awesooooooooooooome!

The color I got is called More 9109. The color matches my natural lip color nicely without being overpowering, adds just a little more saturation to them if I do say so myself.

^In this picture I've only applied the lip color to my bottom lip so you can see the comparison of my natural lip to the color. When you compare it to a brand like Wet'N'Wild or NYC you can really feel the difference. It's so freakin' smooth and moist but it does have a very slight sticky feel after a few minutes like most glosses.

(The color in my bedroom lighting)

Color: 5/5

Texture: 5/5 [By texure I mean how well it applies and how it feels on my lips]

Price: 4/5

Would I buy it again?: Yes

I'm not fond of the price of this product which was around $25, but it's worth it in the long run. The pencil looks like it'll last me for a good 0.5-1 year since you don't have to re-apply coats of it a lot throughout the day and I more than likely will not be wearing it every single day.

I hope you found this review useful!

Ahem...Japan What You Dooooo

Heeeeey, lol. Sorry for the lack of posts, school has been taking the forefront. Anyway, how've you been? I've been dandy thanks!

So, this week has just been full of disappointments. Nelson Mandela died yesterday and my favorite gyaru magazine Soul Sister has ended :( Now I have to buy all the older issues and look for inspiration on the internet (like I've been doing). It seems gal fashion is as popular in Japan and the attention is headed back towards the youthful teenager look. Not that it makes much difference to gyaru anywhere, if anything it probably sends it back to its root of being a fashion that doesn't follow the mainstream and rebels against society's view of beauty.

AN-T-WAY, I've got some things to review for you all! (As soon as they get delivered) but until then I can review a few things that I've collected over this long hiatus which is mostly makeup and a circle lenses review (Tri-color violets) and some boots. Welp, I'm gonna go study some more and contemplate a better way for my blog to get more followers!

See you babes later~
