Etude House Precious Mineral BB Pact and Brightener

The Etude House Precious Mineral BB Pact comes in three colors. I bought the lightest one which may have been to light. It does not offer much coverage.  I personally love this smell. It smells like flowers, vanilla, and white lilies.  It has an SPF of 25 PA++. It kept my face dry all day!!

The print is very topical. 
The precious mineral Brightener has three colors in the palette. It has a very interesting texture. It has three colors, pink, white and aqua. It also has a pearl design in it. I like to use each color on different parts of my face to make my face look different and different angles.

On the top is the three colors of the highlighter and on the bottom is the mineral powder.
These are both very reasonably priced ($10-$15). They are very fun pretty and smell great! I highly suggest trying them out if you can afford them.

BanilaCo Dear Flower Eyeshadow and Sonia Rykiel Trio Eyeshadow

This Dear Flower eyeshadow by BanilaCo is very nice! I love that they are kinda baked. They are soft and very shimmery. Sometimes you can have a good amount of shimmer under your eyes at the end of the day despite using a primer. 
Up close with flash. So pretty!
When swatched the colors are very light but they remind of a super cool icy look. Like the Majolica Majorca Collection.
This is a new brand to me. This item was given to me buy Lotus Palace.

The textures remind me of BanilaCo eyeshadows. That is why I grouped these together.  They all have a silver undertone and can leave shimmer under your eyes at the end of the day. I love this trio because its very bright.

Arezia Palette from

My BF got me this palette from It is very affordable and offers so many color choices! The shadows are decently pigmented and sparkles all through out.

Its comes with several trio shadows, 4 blushes, a highlighter and a face powder.

The shadows are more talc based and are not satin.

I am loving the orange, yellow and pink trio. Each trio really is very nice.
A love the doll pink blush on the left. The highlighter is my favorite! Its good to even out skin tone and give you highlights!

The face powder is on the lighter side which works great for me.
There were so many colors to swatch. So I just randomly swatched a bunch of colors for your viewing pleasure.

If you are looking for something cheap, chic, and cute, this palette is for you!

Jadilla J Multi Face Cover

 I got this lovely item from Kathi from Lotus Palace. She has such great taste with asian brands!

So this multi face cover is a really nice product. I actually like it so much that I replaced it with my skinfood banana concealer.

So the pot contains three different covers.

The top color on my wrist is the highlighter which is on the bottom left of the pot. It has gold shimmer in it. I put it on my upper cheek bones.

Middle color on my wrist is a very thick heavy concealer which I use under my eyes for heavy coverage. It is  pale beige color. Its the top color in the pot.

Bottom color on my hand is a very thin light concealer. Its great for all areas on my face and its very light weight. The color is a very pale ivory and it blends like a dream and offers light coverage.

I highly suggest buying this product! It can purchased from Gmarket

Crochet Hair Bow- Kawaii and Kim Tia Inspired

Kawaii Crochet Bow Hair Pin! 

Thanks to Kim Tia, I have been getting into crocheting. I am still a novice. I tried to make a cupcake with my bf and it looks like a huge tilting ice cream sunday right now. So after looking at the bow, I realized that this was more simple.

Basically a rectangle was made with a single crochet stitch, about 4 inch by 3 inch.
Then a strip was made that was two rows long. It was wrapped around the rectangle and a button was added in the center. Then everything was sewn together!

Lastly a bobby pin was sewn in on the back!

What do you think? Please let me know!

Ludanmei Eyeshadow and Blush Palettes

These palettes were purchased from and they were around $7.00 each and they are AMAZING! Super shimmery and super pigmented!!!! 

This brand Ludanmei is based out of Hong Kong. This is all Sasa sells by this brand. They do have a website, and sell beautiful makeup! 

The eyeshadows are made mainly of talc and mica.

The blushes are on the far left of my hand, the rest are eye shadows. I love the yellow blue and gray. They are so shimmery and pigmented for the price. I am so impressed. They are also very smooth and soft and with a primer last all day!
This the other palette that they sell. The shimmer also goes all the way through the shadow. Its not just topical at all. 
Beautiful deep spanish colors! The very top colors are the blushes.

Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara

This stuff is crazy amazing! Just look at my before and after! 

I just love how to tube looks like a black/red stiletto heel!
The mascara has a slight weird odor but not to bad. The brush is narrow at the end and wide at the top just like the heel. I am using soft black.
These are my eyelashes without mascara! You can see I have shorter lashes. A cosmetologist told me that I had medium length lashes and medium fullness.
BAM!!! After using lash stiletto! The length is crazy! It does not offer any thickening but it makes my eyelashes look crazy long! 
At the end of the day, there is no smudging and no debris on my face! Definitely worth buying! Remember it is not good for providing volume so if you have sparse eyelashes this is not the mascara for you.

Kawaii Cupcake from Kimberly Tia of Batyoureyelashes Blog

So I love Tia's kawaii crafts. She is very good and she loves doing it! I bought this little cupcake from her and she even personalized it for me! I asked to have curly frosting on the end and a brown bottom. 

I love the cherry and sprinkles!!!
Its so soft and cushy!

I highly suggest supporting Tia's craft.
Look at the easter egg candy on the inside! how cute! She also made me beautiful little magnets.
ohh look a little piece of confetti on the inside! Did I mention that she filled it with candy magnets and confetti? and wrapped it in pretty green confetti tissue paper?

Its so fun! I think I am going to fill mine with something makeup oriented or jewelry.

Hey Tee Tee, you should make a kawaii jewelry box! 

Thank you so much for my strawberry cupcake. I'll think of you when I look at it!

Lioele Natural Mineral Powder

I really like this powder. As you may have already read, I am trying to only wear non-comodeogenic powders. This powder has no talc, oil, or preservatives and is fragrance free. 

It mainly contains  zinc oxide, titanium oxide, carnauba wax, amino acids, vitamin E, and silver oxide.
The powder poof has a very soft velvet feel.

I went with #21. 
When its rubbed in, it has a very soft feel. It offers a medium coverage. I also did not get oily when wearing it through out the day.
