Infinite Lip Cloud by EM Cosmetics

Price: USD 16.00

Catch it here: EM Cosmetics Website

Hi all, so I finally FINALLY got my liquid lipsticks from Michelle Phan’s makeup line EM Cosmetics. I LOVE THEM. If you’ve tried her earlier makeup, it wasn’t all that, which I don’t think was her fault because she was working under a large brand, and didn’t have as much control over her products; but she ended up restarting her brand. So, these products were of a much higher quality. MUCH HIGHER. Continue reading Makeup Review: Infinite Lip Cloud by Michelle Phan (EM Cosmetics)

yura-ill-be-yours-insp-makeup-look

Hi all, so I attempted a look I saw on my favorite k-pop idol; the gorgeous Yura from Girl’s Day! I love Girl’s Day a lot, and I am so hype for their comeback! I’ve seen the “I’ll be Your’s” MV like at least a million times. I wanted to try to recreate Yura’s look, and it looks a lot better in person I think. The pink didn’t show up very well on camera, but what can you do?9a54674b064b116a13a2c9d14920b773930768ba_hq

Hi all, today I’m bring you my current skincare routine! I’m kind of tired of doing just review blogs, so I thought this would be a fun way to change it up a bit. Hope you enjoy, and let’s begin!

About Where I Live:

So you have to make a routine that matches the climate you’re from. I live in Alaska, and currently it is cold and dry; like crack your face open dry. So I need to moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Also, I can’t use a face wash that strips my face of tons of oil.

We can break my skincare routine into two different sections: the everyday routine and the twice a week routine. I do this because there are some products that aren’t good for everyday use. Continue reading Current Winter Skincare Routine!

Hi all, so I’ve been following Jeffree Star since middle school, and I’ve been meaning to get some of his products for awhile; but it’s kind of hard when you’re broke af (I spend all of my extra money on books okay). Luckily my friend got me this pallet for Christmas! I know Jeffree is a super controversial person, but to someone like me he is a success story that all alternative kids can look up to. A weirdo who made it big. So without further ado, let’s get into it! Continue reading Makeup Review: Beauty Killer by Jeffree Star

Makeup Review: VDL Lumilayer Primer

I bought this product 🙂vdl-lumilayer-primer-30ml-9940-9834701-1-product

VDL LUMILAYER PRIMER

Price I Paid: USD 18.50

Made in Korea

Catch it Here: AmazonVDL Cosmetics

Description from VDL Website:

1. Voluminous face injected with light
Violet Lumilayer Pigment, made by combining skin-brightening red light and blue light for clean and clear skin, creates an intensity that illuminates the face and highlights features.

2. Radiance that lasts all day
Gently illuminates the face to make skin tone look brilliant all day long.

I vaguely remember bubzbeauty recommending this product a while back, and since then I’ve been meaning to try it. As far as k-beauty goes, I’ve only used one other face primer before (from Innisfree). It was nice, but it was better for my sister’s skin than my own.

I really like this one because it is moisturizing, and it’s super glowy. The product claims to brighten the skin, and reduce redness; which it definitely does!

My skin is oily to dry combination, and this product doesn’t clingy to my dry patches. It smooths them out, and also makes the foundation settle better too. If you have oily skin, this product might make your skin too dewy, so that’s my only note.
