|Etude House| Lash Perm Proof Mascara Volume Review

I'm sorry it took so long for me to write a new review but I have been having problems with my health the past few days and I'm still not feeling any better. But I decided to write this review today before September really ends!

I'm using this Lash Perm Proof Mascara Volume brush for a few weeks now. It's very easy and fast to apply , your average volumizing mascara.

It claims to blog water a.k.a water proof, no smudge, lasts for 1 day and you can only remove it with Mascara remover. All these are true! Which is really good! I wear contact lenses most of the time and my right eye tends to drop a couple of tears every time I put makeup on 'cause the brand of that contact isn't really suiting me! Gonna replace that lens soon but I still have three of them left! After a few tears this mascara didn't smudge at all.. I rubbed my eyelashes with my wet finger and it didn't move at all! So yes it's waterproof. Well, I didn't try taking a shower or swim with this mascara on! 

It lasted all day!

How to apply this Mascara and More details

One thing I'm not happy about is that it clumps! Most of the volumizing mascara do that though.

This is a preview on my lashes but they are so difficult to stay curled. Even after I curl them with the curlers they just go straight on me :( If you have easy or naturally curly lashes I'm sure this mascara will look much better on yours! I still don't know why I even review mascaras. I have the worst lashes for mascara preview haha.

So things I like about this Mascara:

  • Waterproof therefore long lasting
  • No smudge
  • Fast to apply
Things I'm not happy about:
  • It's clumpy
  • Average Volume
  • It can get messy if you don't pay attention much

Also my apology for the quality of photos, I couldn't really put much effort on taking good pictures this time. I didn't even put concealer on so excuse my dark circles as well!

|Etude House| Eye's Cream Vanilla Moist Review

Eye's Cream by Etude House

Or should I say eye's stick? Hehe! Lovely packaging and box. Reminds me of ice-cream shops and vans!

This product comes in two versions:
  1. Eye's Cream Vanilla Moist - For Moisture, Anti-Wrinkle
  2. Eye's Cream Mint Cooling - For SPF 30 PA++, Anti-Dark Circles
I decided to get the vanilla moist because I have other products for UV protection. I also need to make the lines under my eyes disappear! I sadly has those (Q.Q)

The box is soo adorable! Anyway, the cream is more like a stick. Etude says to massage your eye area with it (at the instructions) but I wouldn't recommend that because it doesn't slide much so ends up stretching the skin. You have to avoid that if you don't want to end up with lines under your eye like me. I used to treat my eye area badly! So I just pat the stick on then slide my finger on.

This is where you apply the Cream

Citrus scent, it doesn't smell like vanilla to me but I think my ability to smell has been acting weird lately!
The area feels fresh after application.

It's a very light eye cream. It's not suitable for people with wrinkles, more like it prevents wrinkles. It's made for younger women below 30 years old in my opinion. So if you are between 20-30, this eye cream is for you.

It hasn't made the lines under my eyes disappear but I can say with confidence that it prevents dark circles even though it's not aiming for that.  I find the Collagen Moisfull eye cream better for line elimination. I'm going to write a review about that eye cream in a few days.

It makes my eyes look fresh in the morning. I use eye creams just before I go to bed or before I put makeup on.

Moisturizing? yes very! gives a fresh nice feeling after application.

The ingredients are mostly of Lemon, Pumpkin, Orange, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf oil and others.
It has hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid that's not harmful and you find in most skin care products that moisturize.
NO PARABENS~ Very good! I don't see anything for the wrinkle control or elimination. Unless there an ingredient that does that which I'm not familiar with. So comment below if you know!

I overall like this eye cream/stick but I wouldn't repurchase. I'm going to continue using it though but mostly before I put makeup on. To protect and moisture my eye area.

Things I like about this eye cream:
  • It smells nice
  • Gives fresh feeling and moisture
  • Prevents dark circles
  • Packaging is cute
Things I don't like:
  • It doesn't really make any difference on the lines under my eyes
What do you think about this product? Have you ever tried the Mint Cooling version of it?

|Etude House| Lash Perm 3 Step Volumecara Review!

I recently purchased this new Volume mascara by Etude House. So, here I am reviewing it and showing you a little preview!

Lash Perm 3Step Volumecara has three different steps or else settings. Every time you need to turn the pink center part to adjust it. You can start from 1 then 2 then finish it with 3 or you can stop at 1 or 2. Depends on how much volume you desire for your eyelashes.

This mascara promises 1 day last and  "Dolly" volume. Meaning having your eyelash look like a doll's. It lasts so many hours, that's true. I used it yesterday for 12 hours. It didn't smudge and it stayed in one place. It takes a few minutes to dry after application though. So if I blink before it dries it's gonna smudge. The first and second step dries fast enough but if you apply the third layer it takes more time.

I like this mascara, it doesn't smudge after it's dry and it's not clumpy. But the thing is that my eyelashes are very hard to curl. They never listen to the mascara or curler! So here are the preview on me, it might look disappointing but imagine it better on other eyelashes. If your eyelashes are easy to curl then this mascara will do miracles but if your lashes are hard to curl then it might look like this:

My hard to curl eyelashes with Volumecara

Didn't notice any change on the brush after I switch the middle part but I did notice that the amount of mascara on the brush look different. I'm not sure how exactly this mechanism works!

I would prefer a different shape of brush for this mascara. Something more bended. But this still works well.

So things I love about this Mascara:
  • Last for at least 12 hours ( I  never wear makeup for more than 12 hours )
  • Doesn't smudge nor clump ( When dry )
  • It gives colour and a volume on my eyelashes ( Not much volume because my lashes are hard to manage but more than other mascaras usually give )
  • Reminds me of the old Etude House Oh My Lash formula
Thing I'm not happy about:
  • It doesn't really make my lashes look like a doll's ( probably cause my lashes are hard to manage )
  • It takes some time to dry after step three
So what do you think about this mascara? Have you tried it?

|Etude House| Be Clear Moisturizer Review

Be Clear Moisturizer Review

A cream moisturizer that brightens up and evens up your skin tone. Yes? Yes!

Hi guys I'm sooo excited to write this review. The last four weeks I have been using this moisturizer non-stop everyday and I have been loving it! At first I was hesitating because most of the products that are for skin whitening they make your face look like you have a white tint all over it. But this one just makes your skin look brighter and goes down half a shade in my opinion. It takes a couple of minutes before it really makes your skin look brighter. But it really does what it say at least for me. Also it makes your skintone even with no red parts over time. So even if I wash  my face or don't apply it on for a day my skin will continue to look nice and bright. But once per day application is essential I think.

It's the third step of the Be Clear line. The steps are:
  1. Be Clear Cleansing Foam
  2. Be Clear Skin Toner
  3. Be Clear Moisturizer
I never used the cleansing foam and the skin toner. I always mix and match skin care products. My face has so many different needs. I need something for the red parts, black heads (huge pores), oil and moisture.

It has SPF 30 an essential feature for products you use in the morning. So you can use it as a sunblock lotion as well. And you can apply it before foundation that hasn't got any SPF and still be covered.

The scent it's not bold. Which I love. But it's floral. I'm not good with the smells though!

Directions: After washing the face in the morning , dispense onto hands and apply to facial surface by gently massaging into skin.

Ingredients on the image above. No parabens! Which I LOVE! Oil free! But it has alcohol which personally I don't mind. Glycerin helps the skin to lock moisture. Please note I don't have sensitive skin. This product doesn't cause me break outs.

Preview on my face!

I have been using this cream almost every day. So the before photo is not exactly before I ever used it. It has made some changes on my face since I started using it. But you can still see big difference on the After photo. The After photo was taken a few minutes after the application.

Does it really moisture your skin? Yes it does. But you still need to have a second moisturizer for your night skin care routine. I ran out of mine so I'm thinking of ordering the Moistfull Flower Cream by Etude House. Which I tried and loved.

Would you repurchase this product? Certainly yes! 

Things I love about this product:
  • It brightens up my skin
  • It evens up my skintone
  • Has SPF 30
  • Moisturizes
Things I'm not very happy about:
  • It doesn't slide much while massaging (if that makes any sense)
  • The scent is not my favorite
Sooo Thank you very much for reading and I'm hoping to see your thoughts in the comments below!

|MUA| Undressed Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches!

Makeup Academy Professional a.k.a MUA released this lovely lovely palette. The famous NAKED's palette (by Urban Decay) DUPE! The colours between the MUA Undressed palette and Urban Decay Naked palette are almost exactly the same. If you are looking for a "drugstore" and "not expensive" version of the Naked palette then Undressed is the best choice in my opinion.

Even though this eyeshadows are not the best quality and you need an eyeprimer to keep it on your lids, this palette is an essential for those who love shimmery eyeshadows! The shades are so lovely. My favorite style is silky and shimmery eyeshadow. And this palette gives me that in a good price and size. You can easily carry it in your handbag. I'm not very happy with the matte eyeshadoes though. They are not very visible after application.


~Review on my EYE~

 ~Eyeshadows I used on my eye~

My favorite shades of this palette
The one thing that I'm a Lil bit disappointed about is that it irritates my eye when I wear my contact lenses. This is a huge problem for me because I wear my contact lenses all the time and especially if I have make-up on. But if I put it on without my contact lenses then everything is fine! I'm going to try it with different brand of contact lenses though. Because I like these colours very much <3

But to be honest with all of you I'd prefer the Urban Decay versions of these shades.

So, Thank you for reading and feel free to comment your opinions about this palette or anything else!


|Etude House| Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk OR204 PK003 RD304 OR206 Review!

Hi lovelies! I finally got the chance to write about these three gorgeous lipsticks by Etude House! The line is called Dear My Blooming Lips-Talk and Etude was promoting them as magic lipsticks that can be used with the KISS NOTE to write the name of the person who you want him to kiss you. Kinda like Death Note but more fun! You can see the lipsticks and swatches above. I hope you like my new style of photo editing~!

The Packaging is super cute! Princessy style which I love (^_^) It's soft pink with a darker pink bow around of the handle side of lipstick! I hope it makes sense.

Some of the colours have different box though. They released a few colours with a special box and the sticker on the bottom of the lipstick is hot pink instead of the usual soft pink. There six of the lipsticks that come in the box with the hot pink heart.

The difference of boxes:

Regular Box

Hot Colour Box

I would have taken a photo of the regular edition myself but I threw away the boxes! Sorry!

The shades with the HOT COLOR sticker next to them are the ones with the special edition box.

Official Etude House Color Chart

Previews on Me! I took photos of me wearing the lipsticks but they are all taken under different lighting. 

Etude House always release fun colour lipsticks. I really like their colours and shades. Very fresh, cute and modern. I'm very in love with these four lipsticks and I can't wait to purchase more in the future. My favorite of these four is the OR204. I also made a video tutorial about Sandara's Park make-up that she wore at the promo photo of the OR204 lipstick.

I would recommend these lipsticks to everybody! <3
