REVIEW: Etude House - I Need You, Pomegranate! Sheet Mask! [ SPONSORED ]

Hello again lovies. I'm back with a review this time! As you know, Momomango has supplied me with a few products to review for them & I'm going to start out with the sheet mask they sent me!

Just like most sheet masks, this comes in your standard packaging, with what it's essence is made of on the front. I think the little men holding up the pomegranate seeds are super cute!

Of course, the back of the packaging has both Korean & English directions to use of the sheet mask.


Etude House
I Need you, Pomegranate! Sheet Mask

Essence mask contains pomegranate additives that nourish for a healthy complexion. Tension fit design for improved facial adhesion and comfort.


Apply mask sheet to cleanser face and leave on for 15~20 minutes. Remove mask and massage remaining solution into skin with hands. Recommended interval for mask application is every 2~3 days for maximum efficiency. 

Hold and apply sheet according to diagram. Pull tabs outwards against facial surface to incite tension fit.


For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep out of reach of children. Discontinue use if signs of irritation and/or rash appear.

I wish I would have been able to capture the sheet mask in the packaging, but my phone ended up dying in the process of picture taking.

The essence is a milky white color, not quite a runny liquid, since it has a bit of thickness to it, but it isn't a super thick essence. This mask didn't come with a plastic film mold, which is never a problem. This mask also has a very light scent, but doesn't quite remind me of pomegranates. It has been forever since I've had one.

The material for the mask is good quality, though I do take care in applying it to myself to prevent any tears. It doesn't my entire face, but it lays on the parts of my face that need the essence the most. Thankfully, the essence DOESN'T run down my face when is use. In my previous sheet mask review, you know I have a huge disliking for sheet masks that essences don't properly stay into the mask & absorb into your skin. 

I wore this mask for about 10 minutes. After removing the mask, I rub the remaining essence onto my face as well as on my neck & decolletage. 

Let Me Tell You!

I don't know why I hadn't tried these masks before now. This mask made my skin feel absolutely amazing after use. Super moisturized & fresh & lasted for about 2 days after use. I think these are better than MBD sheet masks & I have a strong love for those. The essence sank into my skin wonderfully & effectively. I would definitely purchase many of these.


I wish I had one million of these to last me forever. My skin would always be so supple & pretty.

If you'd like to try this product out for yourself:

This is for U.S. & Canadian residents only.

I hope you've enjoyed this review!

I hope you have a wonderful day & an even better one tomorrow!

NOVEMBER HAUL: BeautyNetKorea, TesterKorea, Kpoptown, Lime Crime, & eBay!

Hello my lovies! I put in some work this November & bought a good amount of stuff. I finally have received everything I ordered last month & have decided to compile it into one post. 

As you can see from the top banner, I purchased a lot of Etude Houses new Princess Etoinette line, which I'm super excited to review for you. 

Let's get into my haul for the last month!


From L - R:

Etude House - Play Color Eyes - #2 So Chic Play [ x ]
Mizon - Snail Recovery Gel Cream [ x ]
Etude House - Princess Etoinette All Over Powder [ x ]
Etude House - Princess Etoinette Crystal Shine Lips in shade #PBE102 & #PPK005 [ x ]
Various samples, mostly Etude with the exception of a mini Tony Moly Cat Chu Wink Lip Tint

This was probably the first website that had almost all of the Princess Etoinette collection. I almost didn't get the nude color from the Etoinette collection. I was planning to get the red colored lipstick, but made the assumption I wouldn't really wear that color. BEST DECISION EVER!


Etude House - Princess Etoinette Eau De Toilette & Mirror [ x ]

I decided on a whim that I really wanted the perfume out of the collection, & it was a bonus that it came with the Princess Etoinette mirror.


Etude House - Sweet Recipe Baby Choux Base

Got the full sized product since I ran out of the samples I bought a few months back.


From L - R:

Holika Holika - Soda Pore Cleansing BB Deep Cleansing Oil [ x ]
The Saem - Peeling So Good Strawberry Yogurt Moisture Pack & Peeling [ x ]
Etude House - Dear My Blooming Eyes in Shade #OR201 [ x ]
Various Samples.

I'd been eyeing up the BB Cleansing Oil for quite sometime & decided it was finally time to get it. The Strawberry Yogurt Mask is a substitute for a Laneige product. I was also eyeing up the palette as well. I had a few credits when I bought these, so I'm really happy I got all of this for less than $20.

Lime Crime

Lime Crime Velvetines in Red Velvet & Pink Velvet [ x ]

I already purchased Suedeberry months back & Lime Crime was having an awesome Black Friday sale going on. The website was having so many issues while I was trying to purchase these since they are in such high demand, but with a little patience & persistence, I was able to successfully add both to my cart & purchase within 30 minutes. They were on sale for $14 & had a promo code for another 30% off the entire order!

Ahh, so much! Probably one of the biggest hauls I've made in the last few months. I have another one already planned for next month thanks to TesterKorea having an awesome sale going on. I'd take advantage before the 20th arrives.

Hope you've enjoyed my haul! <3

Have a wonderful day!

What's In My Makeup Bag?

Hello again lovies. I decided since I bought myself a new makeup pouch, I would show you all the goodies I take with me on a daily basis. There's a lot in there since I don't want to be caught out somewhere without a certain thing I may need at the time. I'm super weird about that. ><;

This is pretty much what I have in my bag, minus the three items I will be showing at the end [ I forgot they were in my purse. I sometimes forget to put them back in the makeup pouch ].

Let's start with the face products.

From L - R:

Etude House Bling in The Sea Apricot Blusher
Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion
Etude House Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Color in Peach Sugar Cake
Benefit Watt's Up Mini Highlighter
Mai Couture Highlighter Paper 

Next is the lippies:

From L - R:

Etude House Rosy Tint Lips in #8 After Blossom
Tony Moly Petit Bunny Gloss Bar in #1 Strawberry
Holika Holika Heartful Silky Lipstick in #SRD802 Lovely Vampire

My one eye product:

Holika Holika Magic Pole Mascara in Volume

For those "Just In-case" Moments:

La Fresh travel-lite Makeup Remover Wipes

My lens case:

Super convenient. I like to have this on me just in-case I need to remove the lenses when they get dry. It's Anna Sui inspired. 

I also have three other products I forgot to put in there when I took the photos:

Limecrime Velvetine in Pink Velvet
HSi Professional Argon Oil
One 'n Only Argan Oil Styling Cream

And lastly:

A few samples, for another just in-case moment.

My makeup bag is practically full with all these products! 
I just really thought this would be a pretty cool & informational post into what I would normally tag along with me on an everyday basis. 

I do hope you've enjoyed this!

Hope you have a wonderful day! <3

MALL HAUL: Victoria's Secret & Forever21!

Hello my lovies. I've been slacking on blogging once again. I'm trying to get myself back up into it. I guess since it's the holiday season, I've been more focused on who I have to buy for & what I need to buy that I've been way too overwhelmed to really blog. I only posted one blog last week! ><

But thankfully, I've gotten just about everyone out of the way & can finally breathe, so I have plenty of reviews & posts to write up.

Yesterday, I went out & did a little self shopping since I'm almost done buying for everyone.
 Let's start with what I bought from Victoria's Secret!

[ The top photo is without flash & is why the shirt looks more pink than white. ]

First, I decided to buy this really pretty PINK long sleeved tee that has rhinestone accents on both arms. I love the design as well as the pretty holographic PINK logo on the front of the shirt. This retails for $39.50, which really is quite expensive, but I couldn't find another long sleeved tee to go with the 2 for $40 deal they had going on.

This is the PINK Warm & Cozy body spray that I've been looking for in the travel size for awhile. I can't always use body sprays & purfumes since my mother is sensitive to scents, so this should last me quite awhile. It has a very warm, fruity scent. This retails for $8.00. Affordable for a travel spray seeing as the bigger size is $18.00.

I also purchased three pair of undies. They are currently having a 50% off all panties promo, so, I decided to just get three. All three panties retail for $9.50 but are on sale for $4.75.

A mint, mesh pantie with lace trim as well as silver polka dots.

A basic cotton hipster, pink with dots of yellow, orange & pink as well as a holographic logo that says "Love Pink".

A pretty pink, coral, orange, yellow, & black floral & chevron cheeky pantie. 

Altogether, a very small purchase from Victoria's Secret. I'd like to start shopping there more, but my wallet doesn't quite agree. 

Next, I stopped at Forever21's plus size section to see what I could find since I'm in need of more tops as well as bottoms. I picked up three items.

I needed a bigger makeup bag to carry all the items I have in my purse. It's quite roomy & fits all of my travel essentials. I'll post a "What's in My Makeup Bag" shortly. I believe this makeup pouch retailed for $6.50.

I picked up this really comfy cardigan in a baby pink color. I definitely would like to incorporate more whites & pinks into my wardrobe for those days I want to have a softer look. This retailed for $19.80 but was on sale for $15.00. 

The last item I purchased is this Street-Chic Mickey Mouse Sweatshirt that I'd been eyeing up on the Forever21+ section of the website. Of course, since my nickname is Mickee, I had to get this. It's super soft! This retails for $24.80.

So that's all for my mall haul. It wasn't a lot, but just enough to make me happy. I still have to get a few more gifts, especially for little man, but I'm almost done, so it won't be too hard. He's easy to buy for! ^^

Hope you've enjoyed this little haul! <3

REVIEW: Etude House Rosy Tint Lips - #8 After Blossom!

Hello lovelies. Hope you're having a wonderful week. I had planned to post a review last night, but I hurt myself pretty badly & ended up falling asleep quite early. I think I'm planning to do more than one review tonight, I haven't really decided just yet. You'll just have to wait & see.

I know it's been reviewed more than once, but I have to express my love for this lip tint. There are two different types packaging for these tints. I'm unsure if After Blossom is the only tint that comes in this type of box. I think it looks super cute & classy. The rose & lace accents are definitely up my alley. 

The bar code as well as the shade I bought.

The lip tint container is very sturdy. Adorned with a baby pink cap, the container is the same color as the lip tint itself, which makes it easy to find when wanting to apply it to your lips. I hear this lip tint is much more different than others since they always came with a doe foot applicator.

I have to say that I really like this type of applicator. I find it easier to apply the tint this way than with any type of other applicator, but I highly believe I'd have a better chance at accurate application with a lip brush. This goes for all lip products.


" This velvet type Tint Lips comes with a soft delicate texture and rich color to express lips of a rosy petal. "


Tip 1. ) Delicate Petal Lips Gradation : Dab a certain amount onto center of upper and lower lips and use tip to evenly spread.
Tip 2.) Rose in Full Bloom Lip Cover : Smoothly glide onto lips, starting from inner to outer direction.
Tip 3.) Soft Petal Cheeks : Dispense a certain amount and dab lightly onto both cheeks, blending quickly with fingers.


1.Use only as directed.
2. Avoid storing in high and low temperature and areas exposed to direct sunlight.
3. Cease use if problems arise.

[ NT WT. ] 7g

Here's a swatch of the lip tint on my hand. The top photo shows the tint in full color while the bottom shows the tint after 10 minutes of wear & then removed with a wipe. Even without the full force color, it's really pretty.

Here's the tint on my lips. I love this color. I loooove this color. These deep colors are perfect for the winter months. This tint lasts on my lips even after drinking or eating, but as with any lipstick, it does transfer onto everything. 


For about 3-4 hours, my lips aren't dry, but any more time after that, I can tell my lips getting much more dry than they were before, which isn't a problem. 

Overall, I would definitely get more of these awesome tints while they're still around. They're of amazing quality & have 8 colors to choose from. Easy to apply & smooth onto my lips, they don't sink into my lip lines at all.


If you'd like to purchase this for yourself:

Kpoptown.com - Etude House Rosy Tint Lips - USD $7.65

Beautynetkorea.com - Etude House Rosy Tint Lips - USD $9.12

Hope you've enjoyed this review, even though it was quite short. I don't know if I will be posting another one tonight, but I'll be sure to post again this week. I'm getting super tired. :3

Hope you have a wonderful day/night!

REVIEW: It's Skin Babyface Pretty Under Eye Pencil!

Hello there my cute little lovies! Hope you're all having a pleasant week. It's only Tuesday though! I'm super ready for another weekend to relax since all I'll be doing this week is de-stashing all of my stuff in preparations for the coming year. I've already cut my nail polish & make-up at least in half, & now I'll be working on little man's clothing. He's getting so big! I'll include a photo of him after the review! So, let's get started!

Excuse the poor quality.

I bought It's Skin Pretty Under Eye Pencil because I really wanted to get that aegyo eye look that is all the rage these days. I seriously cannot get over how cute it makes everyone look. This was on sale when I bought it, so I really felt this was going to be a wonderful item to get me used to creating that puffy, under eye bags look that everyone goes for.

The packaging is super cute as well!

Pretty Under Stick

"Young eye portrayal with a champagne pearl color."

I love the color of this. It's really natural looking as well.

Pretty Filter Stick

"Shades with a natural brown color and helps portray the eyes in a cute and clear manner."

A basic bronzy color.


Step 1: With the Pretty Filter Stick (thin side), lightly draw the line that appears when you smile from left to right, naturally giving a shade to the skin.

Step 2: With the Pretty Under Stick (thick side), fill in the area between the eyes and the shade.

Pretty basic directions. They were super easy to follow.

I love the champagne color a lot. It's super gorgeous.

Took some photos of me wearing the product as well.

Without Flash.

With Flash.

As you can see, the champagne color shows up a bit more than the bronze color.

And with that, I'm going to explain why I DO NOT like this product. 
This product does not last very long on my eyes as both sides of the pencil are a creamy consistency & tend to rub off really easily. It's not very pigmented & doesn't give me the look I was going for. I had such high hopes for this product, too. I get better results using eye shadow. You may have different results, but this eye pencil definitely isn't for me. That means I'll have to try out other products! Leave a suggestion in the comments!

I think I'll be able to salvage the champagne pearl side to use as a highlighter or an eye shadow base. I don't want to let it go to waste.

If you'd like to try this product out for yourself:

Testerkorea.com - It's Skin Babyface Pretty Under Eye Pencil - USD $7.52
Koreadepart.com - It's Skin Babyface Pretty Under Eye Pencil - USD $10.07

Here's some pictures of little man, as promised!

He's gotten so big! <3

Hope you've enjoyed this rather short review!

Have a wonderful day/night my lovies!
