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~ bigsmile 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.

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!

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~ smile

 

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 ebay.com). Yes the markup is insane! But sometimes I pick convenience over a great deal ;__; forgive me. I am the picture of lazy.

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 heart smile 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.

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. smile 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. :'(
