More Beauty Stuff!

so on wednesday lucky me, got my hands on the last bottle that the seller had for OPI's "you don't know jacques" suede hehe! and i finally got around to putting it on today and it's gooorggeeouuss! <3 it dries in like literally 10 sec. i love it. except like it says on the tag, that it does chip more easily than it's regular lines....i had to repaint my left thumb after washing the dishes ... bleh. ==; on the tag that came with it says...."Suede by OPI does not wear as long as original OPI Nail Lacquer. Do not use top coat, drying product or hand lotion when wearing Suede." hmmm....i wonder what happens if i do lol but it's a good idea not to even attempt, since it's stated so specifically. maybe it'll just completely ruin the nail polish or something :S lol. ahhh w/e i still like it a lot. :)

i lurrrvvv it <3

And then i thought it was a good idea to try something new tonight since i was playing with my Visee eyeshadow palette and did my whole face for fun haha. my makeup though, is somewhat washed out by the lighting/camera so the overall look is more pigmented in real life. For some reason, even though all the eyeshadows from the 2 palettes i got are SUPER shimmery, when you put it all together it doesn't look too over done with sparkle, and in fact, looks really pretty. ^^; Anyways...

I got this DHC Deep Cleansing Oil makeup remover for my birthday and it's another japanese brand so you can't get it here unless u buy it online or something. It takes off makeup really easily which is great, except as the name says it's an oil so my face felt really greasy when i was massaging it all over my face which i'm not too fond of and it has a really strong olive oil scent - which is the first ingredient listed (so it's a good natural makeup remover). I guess I'll just get used to the oily feeling, cause afterall it did remove my maybelline falsie's mascara in waterproof decently without much effort. It only had a bit of residues left on my eyes which i can just wipe off with my towel. my sister swears by this makeup remover now and apparently it's comparable to shu uemeura's makeup remover but for much less! good stuff :)

first post & japanese makeup arrival!

first post! :D so i decided to start fresh here, my tumblr has way too many irrelevant stuff (of my random interests) on it - i'm not abandoning tumblr i'll still continue to massively post/reblog daily LOL but i'm making this devoted to my (boring) little life XP - this will be my own little place to truly express, blab and vent about things :)

so as i have mentioned before on tumblr, i ordered some japanese cosmetics with my sister from ichibankao and it arrived in like less than a week! :D i'm so excited to play with these! <3 i've never really tried any japanese makeup before so this is my first. I ordered two eyeshadow palettes, one blush, and this toner that my sister picked out for me.

Kate 2011 Spring Collection - Crystallise Quartz in BR-1, Visee 2011 Spring Collection - Glam Shade Eyes, and Majolica Majorca Cheek Customized - OR211
the toner, apparently it's a really good one - i'll see about that haha

the Kate Crystallise Quartz palette, the packaging is SUPER cute!! the eyeshadows are all really shimmery. the only thing about it is that i wish there was less of the highlight color "A" and more of the other shadows in the quad
and it even shows you where to place the shadows on the 
back of the packaging :)

Visee Glam Shade Eyes Palette - really really beautiful colors! they are also all shimmery. can't wait to try this one out!

this one has a little demo on the back as well :)
Majolica Majorca Blush in OR211, a cute coral ( pinkish-orangey) color - almost matte, only if you look carefully you'll see a bit of really small, fine sparkle in it, it gives your cheeks a nice sheen. the blush is really soft and silky! packaging wise, the whole plastic cover slides off and the blush is very narrow & small so you gotta use a smaller brush.
I will try these out and maybe do a little follow up/review on them? sounds like this is some beauty blog lol :) anyways, 3am shit...goodnight & toodles. XD
