Lip Tint Masque!

Ohhh lovely blog. How I’ve missed you! I’ve been busy and sleeping. Literally sleeping every free time I have. Its insane how much sleep I’ve gotten for doing absolutely nothing.

Well except for the week that I spent in Los Angeles~ :D It literally was amazing and I ate everything! It’s just been a kicker to go back on diet mode. :'( I just want to eat moreee. But too bad. However I think I didn’t bring the right products with me because I noticed that I broke out so bad during that week. But this week since I’ve been back in NYC my face has gotten soo much better. Either it was the diet or the weather. IDK but I need some serious self-discipline!


But back to the main topic, today we are talking about this My Lip Tint Pack by Berrisom in Sexy Red. I was with a friend browsing this store called Everyday Beauty in Flushing, NY, when this caught my friend’s eye. I didn’t know anything about it until she told me how it’s suppose to be like a lip tint but better. And proceeded to show me a video that includes the following snippet.


Life Update & IECSC Haul


It’s been ages, I know. I’m sorry! As always, my life has been super busy lately despite me getting nothing of substance done – I went back to school on weekends while still working full-time during the week, so pretty much everything fun in my life has been put on the back burner ): So I haven’t really had much to blog about, and though I do have tons of drafts sitting in my Evernote (I like to type them up during my commute, it gives me strength haha), since my job involves staring at the computer for seven and a half hours a day, it’s hard to find the motivation to open Photoshop when I’m at home. But I definitely miss posting, and am trying to carve out some time to work on this blog some more! I just don’t want to post once and then disappear for three years x: so I’d rather be inactive for a while and get myself together.

So last year I decided to become a licensed esthetician – skin care/makeup of course are major interests in my life to the point that I don’t really talk about anything else hahaha. Classes started in January, and since I’m only going part-time, I’m in class all day on weekends and won’t be graduating/ready to take the licensing exam until November .——–. But I love it so far! My teacher is amazing and the class is small enough that everyone gets a little individual attention, and my classmates are all super chill. It sucks dealing with weekend public transportation schedules (the subway line I take is notorious for breaking down and being slow and not even announcing it) and waking up at 6am all the time, but it’s worth it.

And a huge perk of being “in” the beauty industry is access to trade shows, like the International Esthetics, Cosmetics, and Spa Conference that took place last week! Being able to see all the latest products and machines in action, especially as a student, made me really excited about the future. Oh and then I bought stuff :B


Holika Holika + Tony Moly Haul :3

There is a Holika Holika store in Flushing, NY!! It is a bit further from the hustle and bustle of downtown Flushing. So luckily I was able to grab a ride with a friend to the store!

There were so many things *_____* And so pretty. Unfortunately for you guys, I totally forgot to take pictures of the store. Heh…heh…heh… But here are all the things I got!



Deal Alert! Shea Moisture!

If any of you enjoy using Shea Moisture products, head on over to your local Walgreens or Duane Reade! They are currently having a sale on all their Shea Moisture products! This includes everything from their Hair Care, Body Care, and Baby Care products!


I got a few things because I just ran out of my own shampoo, Wen, which I was using I like it a lottt but it is on the pricier side. So I just didn’t repurchase that. This on the other hand were both $10.99 at my local Walgreens. I might also buy some hair treatments next time I’m there.

This I believe that this deal ends on Saturday 1/24, so go go go~ :)


Review: Skin Food Black Sugar Foaming Scrub

Ahh yes Skin Food. it is coming around and I am really reviewing things!

Today is focused on the Black Sugar Foaming Scrub that costs $17.40 (~$10 on Yes the markup is insane! But sometimes I pick convenience over a great deal ;__; forgive me. I am the picture of lazy.

Brunch and Killer Heels in Brooklyn!

Last week Yaling and I went with another friend down to the Brooklyn Museum to see the Killer Heels exhibit! Since Brooklyn is kind of inconvenient for us, we decided to eat there as well since we don’t often get the chance to check out their restaurants.

And of course the place we originally picked was closed that day -______- Thankfully we had a list of nearby backups and got to Elberta about ten minutes later. We ended up leaving our homes an hour later than our original plans (the three of us are not known for our punctuality haha), and we were SO HUNGRY.

Unlimited mimosas, yeeeaaaah.

Review: Skin Food Parsley & Mandarin Toner

Oh. Yea. It’s been a while. But Christmas is this week!! I’m super excited! I love the holidays! I truly believe that it is the best time of the year. One great thing is all the sales! But besides that just spending time with people that matter <3 :) But let’s get on with what this post really is about.

A toner review! I don’t think I’ve done one yet ever. Truth be told, sometimes I don’t get toners. But there are a lot of good articles out there on what toners are really good for. Here’s a relatively good one from Paula’s Choice, but remember to take it with a grain of salt because they are hard core selling you their products. Which is still pretty good. But no today I am speaking of this product that I purchased from Skin Food for $15.40.

Unboxing Memebox #65 – Apple Mojito Box

I have been working on a bunch of other posts, but they’re all pretty image-heavy and I am lazy haven’t finished them yet .___. But here’s a quick unboxing post! I love mojitos and I love apples and I’ve never found a place that makes apple mojitos, but if you know of one you should probably tell me because I’m sure I’d love it. So I couldn’t resist this box!

Hair Care Routine!

This is a post that has taken me a while to just word correctly. But I am here to talk about my hair routine! There’s a routine for everything unfortunately. One thing that I am going to get out of the way is that I use a mixture of full size, travel size, and samples that I’ve received. But for my own sanity and laziness I am only going to mention the full size stuff that I have purchased.

Let’s start off with me cutting my hair! I had to, with all the coloring that I had done to it…. well let’s say there was a lot of breakage happening. So now I am growing out my hair until I only have fresh, uncolored, undamaged hair on my head. :) There is one thing about my hair that I don’t think I’ve mentioned, it’s actually not 100% curly. It’s actually just rather wavy (like on the curly hair sites, I’d be a 2A), and I do have pieces of straight hair here and there. But It doesn’t really detract from the amount of volume that I naturally have.


Haircut and FOTD?

Hi! I was working on a post on my hair care routine and planned on including this in it, but the hair care part is taking longer than I thought. So I was like, well this part is faster and more interesting for now!

I got a haircut~ And this time at Kiwa Salon, a place that I trust in NYC. I usually have a very hard time finding a place that I really like. But now I have and sometimes I wish it was closer to home.
haircut And yes I had it cut pretty darn short! Why? Well you see most of the length is damaged hair. From split ends to breakage, I needed this cut. Honestly with all the damaged done to my hair I’m pleased that it looks as good as it currently does. I try to take care of it, but sometimes it does not work.

One thing I should mention is that although my hair, for the most part, is very wavy. On the scale of the curly hair charts, I would be considered a 2A. There is parts of straight hair mixed in with my tons of curly hair. My hair stylist gave me the impression that I may have more parts of straight hair on my head than I originally thought. So I guess there’s that.

Maybe I wasn’t the full on curly hair asian that I believed I was. :'(
