REVIEW : Jewelry Haul from! [ SPONSORED ]

Hello lovies. Hope your Monday has been fair to you. Mine was... okay for the most part. Mondays are always the worst!

I'll be getting my photo box tomorrow, as well as posting a new haul for you, so be on the look out for that tomorrow.

A wonderful friend referred me to do some reviews for Shoplately. If you don't know what Shoplately is, it's a website comprised of many brands who range in selling different pieces of jewelry, to bags, to hats, & even clothes. Shoplately has a huge selection of brand as well as items to choose from & have regular sales for certain brands. You have to keep on the look out to see which brands go on sale. 

These are the pieces I received.

REVIEW: Lioele Super Gold Snail BB Cream!

Finally, the weekend is here. Going to relax for a change at home & take care of some things that need to be done. Getting ready for an extra special event for my grandmother, me & my mother will get our hands & feet done. I think I wanna go in my lazy clothes, lol.

So, I got this a few days ago. I've actually been using a couple sample packets of this that I got from Beauteque, which is the same store I purchased this from. I instantly fell in love with this BB cream. It just might be a HOLY GRAIL product.

Let's get into the review!

BEAUTY BOX UNBOXING: Memebox Superbox #3!

This Superbox couldn't have come at a more wonderful time for me. I'm currently sick with some weird allergy thing. The weather here is so indecisive on how it wants to be that my senses have gone completely out of wack... & here this box is to give some some needed hydration. I think the only thing I was expecting in this "Hydration" box was some sheet masks, but I am perfectly content with what I received!

Let's dive into this box!

Beauteque Sample Baggie!

Hello again lovies. I wanted to post this the second I got it, but decided I at least wanted to try one or two of the samples I was sent. Beauteque, for a limited time, was offering a free sample bag, so OF COURSE, I took the offer & got me one. If they aren't holding these any more, I am so sorry for posting this so late! >.<

Another TesterKorea Haul..!

Here's what kicked off my No-Buy lovies. I only bought one of these hauls, but it was enough to make me want to go on one. I hope I can keep up with it, aside from buying the occasional Memebox to keep up with that. We ALL know they spit out boxes super quickly!

Onto the hauls!

REVIEW: Etude House Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Tissue - Oil Type!

Hello lovies. Hope you're all enjoying your weekend. I'm currently working on a project that will be posted in the very near future. Other than that, I'm enjoying my very laid back weekend, playing some Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster & spending time with my family. 

Let's get into this review..

BEAUTY BOX UNBOXING: Memebox Superbox #2!

Along with my 7th Edition Memebox, I also received the Superbox #2 as well. This box was only comprised of makeup items. I like that concept a lot. I hope they plan to make more of these "makeup only" boxes. I have a bit of disappointment that the box only had 4 items, but quickly got over it as I tested out the first three.

Let's get into this unboxing, shall we?

BEAUTY BOX UNBOXING: Memebox 7th Edition!

Hello lovies. It's been over a week since I've posted! Am I having writers block again?!? I'm going to make it a point to post more if it's the last thing I do! I have so much I need to review, it's crazy! 

Today, I actually received my Memebox 7th edition as well as my Superbox 2, which will be reviewed tomorrow evening. I'm really happy with box boxes!

Let's get into this unboxing!

REVIEW: Skin Food Black Egg Pore Foundation!

It seems little man isn't going to sleep any time soon since he slept a good few hours earlier, so I just assume get some long needed blogging done!

I purchased this a while ago from Momomango after a long time searching for this foundation. It's then since been discontinued, but luckily, they had it for sale. I don't believe they have it anymore though, which does make me a little upset. I have yet to re-use it since realizing it's not up on their website.
Let's get onto the review!


I'm back with another Beauty Box. Memebox keeps spitting them out like crazy! Just today, they posted pre-orders for 11-13 & 11-16. I'm unsure if I'll be pre-ordering them or waiting for them to be sold separately. Either way, Memebox seems to be doing much better since the issue with Memebox #5 & #5-2.

REVIEW & TUTORIAL: Etude House Dear My Blooming Eyes Palette - Shade OR201 Bashful Coral!

Hello my lovies. I'm back from visiting my family! I had a wonderful time. Little man turned two on the 8th! He's getting older, quicker, & I am NOT ready! LOL. 

I bought this palette awhile ago & have used it quite sparingly. I really only use this for special occasions when I only want a very light makeup look.

I'll not only be going into the colors, but I have done a makeup look using all the colors in this palette the way I would normally apply this!

Let's start with the product itself!

HAUL: Sephora!

Lovies, I don't know what happened. I had to take a quick trip to my local mall for my boyfriend & remembered that I needed to pick a gift up for my bestie... & I got a little carried away. This was, by far, my most expensive makeup haul to date... & I don't regret a thing.

Without further ado ~

REVIEW: Holika Holika Magic Pole Mascara - Volume Type!


Hello there my lovies. I've got a crazy weekend ahead of me. We're all going visit my stepfathers family, so I wanted to take some time out before I go to get a review or two done, because I don't know if I'll be able to when we go out of town!

I love mascaras. I think I look bald without mascara, LOL. I haven't tried a Korean brand mascara before & I had read some decent reviews on Holika Holika's Magic Pole Mascara, so I decided to take a chance & try it out.

BEAUTY BOX UNBOXING: Memebox's Superbox #1!

I know, I know. I've been blogging a lot about Beauty Boxes lately. ^^; Don't worry, my lovies, I'm going to be doing regular reviews no matter what! I finally got this box in the mail yesterday, so I wanted to not only get this post up now, but give you my first impressions on the products I've used from it ( almost all of them! ). 

Let's get into this Superbox!

REVIEW: Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips Talk Color Pop Lipstick, Shade OR215!

Once upon a time, MAC held the "All About Orange"  collection that I was head over heels for. However, the prices of their products was just something I couldn't deal with. I rarely buy from the MAC counter. So a few month back, while watching a youtube haul from a young lady, I cannot remember her name, mentioned that this lipstick was a dupe for MAC's Sushi Kiss.

I was sold.

Fortune Cookie Soap Spring 2014 Box!

Lovies, if you adore bath products, especially cute bath products, & LUSH is too expensive for you, then I suggest Fortune Cookie Soap! I've already done a haul for some of their products & mentioned they have a Soap Box subscription that comes every three months. This is the Spring 2014 Box!

The inside of the box looked like that, with added rose petals & pretty blue strings.

This box was split into two themes; The Goods & The Evils.

The Goods
Rainbows! Butterflies! Fig leaf bikinis! We're not gonna lie, The Goods gave us a run for our money. :) But we think we've done "The Garden of Good" justice, with three fragrances that are pure, angelic, and virginal. You know, all that "good" stuff!

Native Nectar Body Wash
Fresh, cracked coconut. No machete required.

Smells like straight up coconut, nothing more, nothing less. I love the pearl white color. 

Afternoon Delight OCD ( Hand Sanitizer )
Pink watermelon dancing with fresh apricots, crowned in white florals.

 I smell the pink watermelon right off the top, but as it sinks into your skin, I smell the apricot & floral notes more. Smells really nice. The glitter is a nice touch, but I don't see any on my hands once I apply it.

Marshmallow Dreams Cuticle Butter
Lavender springs draped over sage and basil, livened with a splash of vodka, and a swirl of sticky, sweet marshmallow fluff.

There is something so warm & comforting about the smell of this cuticle butter. I definitely smell the marshmallow in this more than the other scents. My favorite of all the scents.

The Evils
Yeah, Baby! It's the strangest thing, but once we started on The Evil's, they just came naturally. Weird, huh? :) We don't know what Evil smells like, but we/re getting it goes something like this...

Make it Rain Whipped Cream
Grab your umbrella! Sparkling droplets of citrus & jasmine dripping with musk, clutched by bloated cedarwood boughs.

I definitely smell the jasmine in this. Floral & inviting.

Forbidden Fruit Fortune Cookie Soap
Dusky verbena creeping over fresh blueberry skins and lemon zest.

Check out that marble. I smell more lemon than the other two scents supposed to be present here. However, my mother smells more verbena. At certain times, I'll be able to smell the blueberry. It came with a fortune in it.

" You will receive a fortune cookie "

In due time, I just might! 

Me So Thorny Steam Me Up Scotty!
Me love you long time. Sorry, I couldn't resist! Citrus, lavender and french vanilla corrupted by a dark shadow of patchouli & sandalwood. 


Corrupted by patchouli is right. I can't stand patchouli, but the more I smell this, the more I get used to it, but I doubt I'll be using it.

The Bloom Bloom Room Bath Fizzy
A strop club for flowers?? I wanna go! A sinfully sweet combination of Jasmine, Lilac, and Lily of the Valley darkened with throbbing musical notes of fresh peach & citrus, all swirling around poles of decadent spun sugar.

Smells more like sweet candy to me, but I love it. My second favorite smell of the entire box.

Venus Fly Trap Perfume Oil
Bergamot, narcaisse, & musk lurk beneath delicate notes of water orchid, sparkling lemon & pink jasmine.

I really wish they would have put this in a bigger container. It smells delightful.

That's all for the Spring 2014 Soap Box. I liked a good bit of the items, but I'm hoping the Summer 2014 Soap Box will blow me away.

Also, Fortune Cookie Soap had another round of customized body butters, so I ordered one!

Chai Tea & Cupcake. It smells EXACTLY like almond cake. I also received a sample of The Bloom Bloom Room.

If you decide to get the Soap Box, make sure you keep the information card. There's a $10 coupon code on it towards your next purchase on Fortune Cookie Soap.

Hope you've enjoyed this Soap Box!


BEAUTY BOX: Memebox 6!

Hello lovies. Hope you're all enjoying your weekend.

I'm going to do a quick review on Memebox's 6th box. There are some repeats in this box, but overall, I like this box better than I did the last one. I'm currently awaiting my Superbox #1, so I'm really excited to receive that,

Onto the contents of the box!

O'sum Aloe Vera Soothing Mist

I like Aloe Vera. My Grams used it a lot on me as a child. This soothing mist really sinks into the skin nicely & quickly as well. 

Kovas Cettua Silk and Shiny Foot Mask

Just your general foot mask. Would work awesome a few days to a week after getting your feet done at a salon or doing them at home. I used an Etude House one that is similar to this.

Recipe by Nature Spray Essence Water

A repeat product I am not disappointed in getting. Haven't used it yet, but I plan to switch between this & the Aloe Spray to see which I like best.

Hanskin Bio Origin Wrinkle Talk BB

First BB cream in the box. Consistency is a bit thick, but I like the finish.

Nelafantasia One Day Whitener Magical Whitening Lotion

Probably my favorite thing out of the box, I like my skin to look bright & clear & this leaves my skin a canvas for any makeup. The before & after is crazy. I have some dark spots on my skin, so I like that this is able to lighten them within time.

Kerasys Moringa Miracle Essence

Reminds me of some of the hair oils we have at home. I like the smell of this. It does leave my hair pretty looking & soft.

Dr. Jart+ Silver Label Rejuvenation Beauty Balm

My favorite of the two BB Creams, it also has a thick consistency, but I prefer the finish on this one than the other.

Laneige Snow Crystal Pure Lip Gloss

A repeat product. The gloss is okay, but I'm not a fan of glosses. 

Overall, this was a better box than the last. I'm hoping all the other boxes get better. I really can't wait to see how these Superboxes hold up either.

I'll be posting more reviews, so stay tuned!
