July 2018 Favorites & Empties

July is over and was a crazy busy month for me! We're so close to being done with our home remodeling and I cannot wait until it's complete! I've had to put this blog and my social media posts on the back-burner, but I'll be back posting regularly soon. If you've been through home renovations then you know how tough they can be! In the mean time, it's time to share what I loved and emptied in July! 

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Haul

Hello, fellow shopaholics! Did you shop the biggest sale of the year? I’m sure many of you are already over the Nordstrom sale, and I feel so lame sharing this Nordstrom post so late!  On the bright side, the sale doesn’t end until 8/5 so if you see something you like you can still shop! I bought majority of these items during early access and a few pieces here and there when the sale went public. For your reference I included sizes and links if the item is still in stock. 

June 2018 Favorites & Empties

In a blink of an eye, spring left and summer is officially in full swing! Unfortunately, June was filled with more empties than favorites. I’ve been preoccupied with home remodeling so I haven’t had the time to explore new products. Here’s what I loved and emptied in June: 

Tarte Aspyn Ovard Palette Review On Asian Eyes | Swatches, Look

It has been a while since I went on any sort of d-day to pick up a newly launched makeup product. I haven’t felt that sort of excitement in so long! The palette I’m talking about is the one and only Tarte Aspyn Ovard. I first shared it on my instagram and everyone agreed that the packaging is so gorgeous! I was super excited to see how it would look on my Asian skin tone and eyes so let’s dive into how it looks and wears! Let’s review!

Heimish Brick Brown Dailism Eye Palette Review

Remember when all the warm toned eye shadow palettes started coming out last fall? Urban Decay’s Naked Heat and Tarte’s Toasted were huge hits and the trend is continuing! So, Heimish came out with their own version, which is called the Brick Brown Dailism Eye Palette.

February 2018 Favorites + Empties

 It has been really cold in the bay the past few weeks so I've been spending lots of time cuddled up on the couch with the doggies.  I guess it's winter trying to get in as much cold as possible before spring hops in. Since we’re in March already it’s time to recap February’s favorites and empties!

3CE Mood Recipe Blush and Lipstick Review

I’m all about nude makeup so when 3CE launched their Mood Recipe collection I literally went ga-ga and made sure it was one of the first things I picked up in Korea. I didn’t pick up every single product from the collection since I have some similar items at home so I got three lipsticks and three blushes. Let’s get into the mood!

Tarte Shape Tape Hydrating Foundation Review

Tarte blew many of us away with their Shape Tape concealer so when word got out they were releasing not one, but two Shape Tape Foundation formulas, people went nuts (good and bad). Out of the two formulas, I picked the Hydrating Foundation to try since anything matte scares me now.

Miche Bloomin No. 6 Girly Flair Lashes -Hooded Eyes | Review

Finding the right false lashes has been a journey. When I first started getting interested in them, I turned to the popular brands- Ardell, Velour, House of Lashes, Eylure, etc. While some worked out better than others, I never found the one. I have large hooded eyes with small creases so falsies can easily look bad. If you suffer the same troubles, I’ve got two words for you. Asian lashes. I’ve been on the hunt since discovering Aritaum lashes and I’ll be sharing the ones I love.  So, today I wanted to introduce you to my new love: the Miche Bloomin Lashes No. 6 Girly Flair.

Etude House Lash Perm Curl Fix Mascara & Long Lash Reviews

I wish I had naturally long, full lashes, but that gene skipped out on yours truly so I’m here on the quest to find a mascara that will give me a boost when I don’t want to wear falsies. I’ve been pretty stuck on L’oreal’s Lash Paradise, but when I was in Korea I picked up two versions of Etude House’s Curl Fix mascaras to try. I got the original, Etude House Lash Perm Curl Fix Mascara and the Long Lash version. Let's see if they'll bring my baby lashes to life! 

2017 Best Skin Care & Makeup

2017 was the year of new things and changes- I started taking blogging more seriously and changed platforms, and I figured out what I wanted to do with my passions. I’m glad 2017 is over and am so ready to tackle 2018. This is the year I make things happen. But before that, here is the roundup of my favorites that got me through 2017:
