LOVE Package

Hello my loves! So just wanted to share a little post on an amazing
❤ Love Package ❤ I received earlier this week from my bestie Chie... (MakeupLAND2011)

She recently went to IMATS LA w/ Jen aka (Pixiemama5000) and picked up a few goodies for me since I couldn't make it. They actually won my IMATS ticket giveaway prize and was sweet enough to get me something as a Thank You gift. *sniff sniff* so generous and kind of them. Love you guys! Chie also added some sweets and goodies in this box for me and my kiddos. I think that was the highlight of this box. The yummy junk snacks n candy... I gotta get my munchie fix! *shrugs* ^____^

The package filled with love, sweetness, tangyness, and Kawaii-ness!

My favorite Asian snacks and candy... *drools*

Swatches L to R:
  • Black Vinyl
  • Emerald Glisten
  • Prismatic Purple
  • Sparkling Turquoise
  • Black Gems
Availability: and drugstores.

Price: $7.49 (prices varies)

Rating: A

Overall: I am not a typical liquid liner user mainly because I love my gel liners... but this one is a keeper. I like the quality, pigmentation and lasting power on these babies. What's sort of weird is that they remove easily under running water when you rub it off. Which is convenient for removal purposes but the fact that it's waterproof, I don't get how that makes any sense. The turquoise and emerald shades are the prettiest of out all colors. Also they are the two that are the hardest to remove. I'd suggest using an oil based eye makeup remover. These are definitely amazing for drugstore quality! Impressive!

Will you be picking any up?

Review: Garnier Moisture Rescue Fresh Cleansing Foam

This is a review on the Garnier Moisture Rescue Fresh Cleansing Foam product I just picked up days ago from Walmart. I actually found this in the "clearance" shelf sitting by itself... all lonely and dying to be picked up. So when I saw $4 sticker... guess what I did... PICKED IT UP! Easy. :)

Originally it was $4.97. Which means I only saved about a dollar but hey that's better than nothing right? The amount of product you get in this was well worth the price.

Deep cleans and detoxifies while moisturizing. Antioxidant made with Fruit Waters.

PROS: Antioxidants, Smells pleasant, inexpensive, moisturizing, oil free.


PRICE: $4.97-5.99


OVERALL: I really like this cleanser a lot. When it comes to face wash, I am pretty picky about the finish and how it lathers. This one doesn't foam or bubble up like my Kanebo Naive cleansing foam (my all time fav) but it does just enough to give me a nice deep cleansed finish. Love how it gives my skin a nice clean, moisturized, firm feel afterwards. It is oil free and also allergy tested. Perfect for sensitive skin types. With so much product and the price being super affordable, I can't imagine not loving it!

Where to buy?

Just found this on *SALE* at for $5.09. Plus you can always use ULTA coupons to save even more! If you are shopping online, make sure to shop w/ eBates to get 4.0% cash back! Sign up (here) if you are a new member. Legit, you get money back for shopping online. Score! Below, I posted some ULTA coupon links to save you money! Happy Shopping!

KOSE current promo on + FREE SHIPPING!

KOSE - Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil
230 ml

Originally $13.30 (15% OFF) ---> $11.30 ($2.00 savings)

*discount will show in shopping cart once you add to basket

[Click on image below to enlarge]

KOSE - Softymo Medicated White Washing Foam
150 g

Originally $7.00 (15% OFF) ---> $5.60 ($1.40 savings)

Hey guys SASA.COM is offering FREE International Shipping once again with your orders of $29 or more. This is always a perfect time to stock up on your favorites. They always have the best deals on amazing Asian cosmetic brands such as My Beauty Diary Masks, Koji, SkinFood, Naruko and more. $29 in your cart can't be too hard to build right? ha ha ツ

Well currently they are also running a promo on specific KOSE products. I noticed my favorite cleansing oil was one of them! I love love love their cleansing oils. It smells great, gets rid of all my makeup and even waterproof formula mascaras. Best part of it all is the price... So cheap for a generous amount of product 230ml. Compared to SHU's cleansing oil (150ml) for $31 or MAC cosmetic cleansing oil (150ml) for $28. It doesn't compare in price/volume. Works just as good if anything better. Why pay more? Plus you don't have to pay taxes and shipping costs which is always a great factor to justify your purchase.

Another item I posted above was a cleansing foam product that's also part of the promo sale. Such a good deal on a large tube of face wash. I swear by Japanese drugstore beauty items. One of my favorite cleansing foams are by Kanebo Naive. They're super affordable and does an amazing job at cleansing your skin. I am pretty sure this one is very similar in quality. Foams up very well so you use very little amount and gives you a deep cleansed squeaky clean feel afterwards. Highly recommend all of them! Doesn't hurt to try when it's only $5.60? Beats Neutrogena/Clean&Clear out the door.

Where to buy:

Promo Expires:
Free International Shipping 2/8/13
Kose discount 2/14/13
[Hong Kong GMT time]

Promo Code: No code necessary

*Hurry and take advantage before the deal's over! Have you purchased anything from SaSa lately?

Youthful, elegant, and utterly feminine, pink inspires a tender makeup palette with a fresh, rebellious twist. Applied to the eyes, lips and nails, or dusted onto the cheeks, the favorite colour of youth dazzles, revealing a face of dewy freshness.

54 BOY

*So what do you all think about this new collection? Honestly, I think it's very feminine and pretty but nothing special. Just another beautiful embossed highlighter powder that will rob you for $80... calling it "Limited Edition" and get people to obsess their minds over it. I actually own two products from this collection already. Rouge Coco Shine "boy" which I adore and the powder blush in Rose Petale. None of the two products are considered Holy Grail status so I can definitely live without. Will you be purchasing anything from this collection? What are your thoughts on it?
