Review: Princess Happy Ending Shockcara

image

Hi guys! ~ Its felt like so long since I’ve last written reviews. Unfortunately I’ve been extremely busy lately, but I promise that I will still post frequently. Two weeks ago, I got my Etude House Disney products in the mail. Initially I wanted to get a lot of products from the range, but somehow I managed to settle with three products (It was a hard decision).  I ended up purchasing the mascara inspired by Jasmine from Aladdin, the nail polish inspired by Snow white and the Cinderella eye shadow glitter. Today I will be reviewing the Happy Ending Lash Perm Proof Shockcara. 

image

Description: This is repackaged mascara and features Jasmine inspired packaging to add length and volume to lashes!

It is a super waterproof mascara with super looking technology. Smudge Zero all day. Powerful shocking volume with blue motor brush.

Capacity : 10 g

The packaging for the products across the whole range of this Disney collection is absolutely gorgeous and I think Etude House did an amazing job with their packaging design as the designs are so distinct that you can tell which Disney princess each product is inspired by. I love how they made the cardboard box look like a story book! When I think of the name of their collection ‘Princess happy ending’, I think of stories. I think the box would also make a pretty decorative item and it is something that I will not throw out! ~ 

image

It also has English instructions,description and ingredients printed on the box and a fancy little, Aladdin inspired barcode. 

image

The packaging of the actual mascara is sturdy, and I love the beautiful teal colour of its lid and the gold, decorative font.

image

image

What I like about this mascara is its flexible, thin wand. This makes the brush easy to manoeuvre, and I can reach the eyelashes in the inner corner of my eyes.  

The formula is also not thick, so it doesn’t clump easily, it is also neither too wet or too dry. In the past I’ve experienced a few mascara with a wet consistency, and if you blink after applying it smudges everywhere, but luckily this doesn’t do that!~

image

I think this mascara does a good job at lengthening my short lashes! Prior to using the mascara I curled my lashes with Shu Uemura’s lash curler and I find that the curls hold for a few hours.  My lashes also looks a bit thicker, but nothing mind blowing. I have rubbed my eyes with these on (by accident) and been under the rain, and I must say that this mascara is definitely smudge proof and water proof!

Although it is good that the mascara is smudge proof and water proof, removing it is a hassle. I find it difficult to remove this mascara with cheap, drugstore eye make up remover (I use garnier or nivea). Only my high-end brand make up remover by Shu Uemura works well.

image

My eyelashes look considerably longer and more voluminous! 

Pros

  • Long lasting
  • lengthens well
  • Smudge proof and water proof 
  • Flexible wand which makes it easy to coat all the lashes evenly
  • Affordable
  • Gorgeous packaging

Cons

  • Difficult to remove

I rate this: 4/5

❀ Etude House - Zoom in the Zoo ❀

all images belong to Etude House

Hi guys!~ I’m back with another product release today ^^. Etude House has once again bombarded us with tons of cute, new products, which is a good and a bad thing ><. First of all, I’ve been quite busy lately so I am trying my hardest to write up reviews for the Disney Etude House products ><, but I should be a lot more free and active on tumblr in a couple of weeks.

So  I was browsing Etude House’s website and they just released this wonderful collection called ‘Zoom in the Zoo’. The collection reminds me a lot of the jungle. Usually I’m not a big fan of some of nail polish colours in this collection, but Etude House has somehow managed to come up with a cute theme which is definitely getting my attention!~

2,500 W

 I feel like a lot of the nail polish in the collections are very wearable, especially the nude colour!~ I absolutely love the packaging, and the cute little zoo animals that are printed on the bottle!

9,000 won

They also have a glitter/metallic nail polish range. I love the grey colour so much!~ I do wish that they would’ve included zoo animal glitter, that would’ve been cool!~

Overall they released quite a lot of colours. I love how all the colours suit the theme and some are wearable and others are a bit more flamboyant. Which colour do you fancy?


Review: One Day Stone-Skipping Brown Circle Lenses

image

Hi everyone!~ Today I will be reviewing 1 day circle lenses from beautylenses. This will actually be my first time trying out circles lenses, and to be honest I am a bit hesitant about it. I must admit that I loved the contacts some kpop idols wear and also Ulzzangs. For example I love the contacts Exo wore, and yes I am thinking about Baekhyun in particular. 

image

These lenses retails for $3.90

First of all I decided to choose one day lense, reason being is that they are affordable, hygenic and I don’t have to worry about buying a lens case and solution, therefore the product seems very convenient for first time users. 

image

BeautyLenses state: 1-day lens is very convenient. You need no solutions, no lens cases, and no hassles. Beauty Lenses 1-Day contact lenses gives you exceptional comfort from the moment you put them on to the end of the day. 

A fresh pair of contact lenses every day may provide improved comfort for people suffering from mild discomfort and/or itching associated with allergies while wearing contacts

image

Beautylenses has 12 different one-day lens contacts to choose from, I went with ‘stone-skipping brown’  since it looked the most natural.

Information about the lens:

Manufacturer : Dueba Contact Lens

Material: Soft hydrogel (Poly HEMA), saline.

Moisture Content: 43% Water
Diameter: 14.3mm
Base Curve: 8.8

Selca of me with the lens on. How does it look? 

imageLens packaging

5/5

The Good thing about one day lenses is that it’s very convenient and easy to use since you do not have to worry about opening any bottles!~ I also had no difficulties opening the packet.

Design and Colour

4/5

Since this was my first time trialing out circle lenses I thought it would be safer to go for a more natural looking lens.  To be honest I like the design since it doesn’t look overwhelming when I put the lenses in, yet still gives my eyes a nice pop of colour. I think in reality the colour and the design on the lenses look really nice and dolly!~ It also captures well on camera!~

Comfort

5/5

To be honest before I used the circle lens I was afraid my eye’s was going to sting and feel irritated. To my surprise these lens were so comfortable, it felt like I almost have nothing in my eye.

Enlargement

3/5

These lenses makes my eyes look bigger but there is no dramatic difference- which I prefer. 

Overall experience

Since this is my first time wearing circle lenses I will not give an overall rating for this product, however I will be sharing my overall experience~ As a first time user I must admit that wearing lenses was more difficult than I expected, but once you get one contact in your eye you start to get the hang of it.

The lenses exceeded my expectations since they were really comfortable and also extremely affordable! I actually love the idea of one day lense, since it’s hassle free, hygenic and perfect for people who aren’t committed to consistently taking care of their lenses. I’m glad my first experience for wearing circle lenses was a positive one!~ ^^

emmie-melody asked: I wish skincare products worked on me :(

Hi there!~ ^^ Ngaw, that’s not good to hear ><. Don’t worry, it took me a long time to find out which skin care suited me the most :) . There are so many skincare products in the market to the point where it’s kind of overwhelming ><. The best thing is to find out your skin type and go from there. I have posted some simple tips which can help you find the skincare which suits you. You can check it out here:  . Plus skin tends to change depending on the season, so some product that might work in summer might not work in winter. I hope you can find skin care products that work/suit you!~ If you have any questions about it, please don’t hesitate to ask :D.
