Etude House Miss Tangerine Haul: Swatches and Review

Etude House Miss Tangerine mini haul. Got these items like last month but too lazy to blog about it. Haha. Anyway, as you can see Miss Tangerine=ORANGE! and I mean vibrant orange from the packaging to the product itself! (ノ≧∀≦)ノ

Okay, these were all that my wallet could handle at the moment. Tee-hee. Let's start.

Miss Tangerine Cheekball Blush
I am such a sucker for cute things! I chose this one cuz it's uber cute!
Pros: Cute packaging
Cons:  Too orange (it doesn't look good with my skin), too shimmery (*≧m≦*)


 
Miss Tangerine Fantastic Rouge Lipstick #13 Coral Tangerine
I dunno why it got deformed. My sister used this and when I got it back... hmpsh! Σ(-`Д´-ノ;)ノ

Swatch on hand

It didn't turn out orange on me. Looks natural.
Pros: I thought it would look orange but didn't, more like muted pink.
Glides on smoothly.
Makes my lips look moisturised, kinda like vaseline on lips.

Cons: Not available locally.
Settles on lip cracks and lines. (︶︹︺)
Staying power is like less than two hours especially if you eat or drink, it'll be gone.

Miss Tangerine Cream Chou Busher #02
Pros: Nice color, love cream blushes, easy to blend, a little amount does the trick
Cons: Fades in a couple of hours, not available locally


Lucid Darling Fantastic Gradiation eyes #08

Swatches

Etude House I'm Fine Eyeliner
Pros: Can define your eyes, smooth tip, takes a while to dry
Cons: Not available locally, creases and flakes when dry

Pros: Cute packaging. Nice, warm colors.
Cons: Creases easily, fades in about 4-5 hours, not a fan of shimmer, lots and lots of fall outs, not available locally!


This make-up haul was like 50-50 for me. I like it but sometimes I don't. Hahaha... Oh~ I'll be posting a tutorial on the Lucid Darling Fantastic Gradiation eyes #08. That's all folks! Hope all of you have a nice day ahead! (≧▼≦;)

Maxi-Peel Concealing Cream and Skin White Face powder Cream Review

I'll be comparing two local brands of face creams. Much like BB creams, tinted moisturizer or liquid foundation but on the cheaper side. Hehehe. But still gives "okay, I can live with that" results. 

Maxi-peel concealing cream in fair 。◕‿◕。

Watson's Mini Make-up Haul

Due to the limited make-up branches and stores here in my city (how sad), my fave place to go shopping for make-up would either be online, SM or Watsons. Since Watsons is nearest my place, I usually go there to satisfy my make-up urges when I can't wait for online processes. (*≧▽≦)

Wallet damage: less than 500php

A body scrub. I bought this since my skin kinda darkened coz of walking too much under the sun.
Pros: A small amount goes a long way, can buff and remove dead skin cells and dirt
Cons: Too rough, can dry the skin

Nichido Final Powder in Creamy Glow which costs 150php.
Since I only use foundation, I wanted to buy a final powder just to complete my make-up kit.
Pros: Nice finish, cheap 
Cons: The powder buffer seems rough on my skin that I use a brush, difficult to pick up powder since the holes are too small


Olay Whitening Day Cream. Got for a sweet deal of 79php for two.
This serves as my daily moisturizer, I layer my concealer/foundation after this.
Pros: Non-sticky, absorbs well on the skin, not oily
Cons: It claims to lighten your skin, but I didn't see the difference. I've been using this for quite a while already, maybe because I'm already pale?? ヾ( ' - '*)


Everbilena concealer stick in Beige. Costs around 120php??? I forgot, sorry. Tee-hee.
Pros: Blends well with my skin tone, cheap, like the packaging cuz it's simple.
Cons: Cakes up if you put in too much, staying power isn't that good, light-medium coverage, slips off on oily skin.

Generic lashes. Lol. Bought this for 12php each at the mall! Weeeee~ The nicest, cheapest stuff I actually liked. (✪ܫ✪)
I never tried fake lashes before so I wanted to try my first with just a few cheap ones. Luckily I found these. I mean 12php! It's a great deal.
Pros: Super cheap! Looks natural, I don't trust the glue it came with, I just love them! Used them on a wedding once at it stayed on there sitting pretty on my lashes.
Cons: Hard to find, limited designs, lash glue looks toxic lol.

Vaseline Lip therapy in Cherry
Oh noes~ my poor dehydrated lips. They always chap recently though I drink tons of water.
Pros: Cheap, nice packaging, love-ish the cherry scent, improves the look of my chapped lips.
Cons: The hole on the tube is too small. \( ・_・)

Sorry my camera is a total fail. So crappy! (^・x・^) Anyways, these were just the items I brought. Maybe you can tell I'm a bargain hunter. Roar! ψ(`∇´)ψ And spends too much time comparing items, even when choosing online. honestly it took me almost a week to figure out which NYX round lipsticks to order. Kekekeke~ Hope the package arrives soon so I can do swatches. That's it for today! Ciao!

Saint Ives Make-up Remover and Avon Solutions Radiance Plus Extra Clean toner Review

If you love make-up then make-up remover is a must have. In order to maintain your flawless looking skin, you have to clean your face every day, especially at night so you're skin can breath and your pores unclogged. 

I have two make-up removers, well one is a cleanser but still good for cleaning make-up residue. I'll be making a review on both of them:

First is the Saint Ives Make-up Remover which I brought from SM around 200php.

It's big. As you can see, it's 170 grams. Lasts for a long while.
Pros: Cheap, gentle on the skin (no alcohol) (=゚ω゚)ノ
Cons: Can't remove eye-liner well, has a scent which I don't understand (´・_・`)

This one I bought a while back and I forgot how much this is.
Pros: Cleans make-up residue well, makes my skin feel refreshed
Cons: None really. Unless the product gets into your eyes, it would sting like a beeyotch. (*≧m≦*)

 Experiment:
Here are the swatches from my Etude House haul. I'll post it later.

Apply a small amount of St. Ives make-up remover.

You need to add water or else it won't be that good in removing make-up.
Massage in circular motion.

 
Skin is clear and make-up is removed! Or-is it? 〜( ̄▽ ̄〜)

Avon Solutions Radiance Plus Extra Clean toner and put some on a cotton ball and swiped it on the back of my hand where the make-up has been.
And viola! There's still make up residue left. (ノ ̄д ̄)ノ

So that's how I clean my face, I never clean my face with soap, unless it Dove or Olay but to really remove make-up you need a good make-up remover and toner. At the end of the day, your skin will thank you for it.

All About Hair: Long Vs Short

Which is better? Long or short hair? That is the question and for most women, they can't really tell the difference. What kind of hair you pick is up to you, but let's ask the gentlemen about their opinion. Here I have a picture of the fresh-faced Sandara Park of 2ne1 who is both a fashion and music icon in Kpop with her hair both long and short.

Sexy long hair.

Cute short bob.

Fun, bouncy curls.

I did some research on the internet and a few of my own. While most guys do admit that they prefer long hair to short, some men and women go for the opposite. But MOST of the men find LONG, STRAIGHT hair more sexier than short or curly hair. For some men, shorter hair means boyish, childish and less of a turn-on. While for women, shorter hair means looking younger, sexy and mature.

I had my own research about this and asked my family and some of my friends both guys and girls which they would prefer more plus the sex appeal. Oh yeah~ most of my girl friends sport long hair, so maybe their verdict could have to do something with that- or not. Lol.

My new short haircut which I love-hate. (Plus points for making me look younger, shorter hair always makes me look younger plus the fringe).

My medium length hair.

My straight, wavy hair (which I miss at the moment).

Randomness: You see the common denominator in all my pics? Right! My signature look violet eyeliner. Tee-hee. Okay, here'e what my friends say about the matter.

The Gals: 6/10 some of my girlfriends prefer me with shorter hair since they say I am skinny so shorter hair makes me look "less skinny"??? They said the short hair made me look "cute", "dolly", "young" while the long hair they admit makes me look more "mature" and "more attractive".

The Guys: 8/10 of my friends said that they preferred the long haired version of me straight away. They say it's more "sexier", "sweet" while the short hair makes me look more "approachable", "friendly", "cute", but little on the attractiveness scale.

My family especially my lil bro said I look different with short hair, I dunno if it's a good or bad thing. But this I can tell for sure, longer hair is a head turner but healthy hair is the best. What's the use of long hair if it's unhealthy? My boyfriend likes touching my hair and he says it doesn't matter if I have long or short hair, ever since I told him about my hair accident with the scissors. But he did say I look like a "child" than a "babe" with short hair, which didn't bother me.  I love that my boyfriend is very honest but supportive.

Well, let's face it some people look better with shorter hair and some look better with long.So in your own opinion, does hair play an important part when it comes to a woman's sex appeal?

To shed more light on the topic here's an article for you, if you're considering a cut: Short Vs. Long. Which is Sexier?
