Japanese Makeup Haul

Hi everyone!

A few weeks ago I uploaded my Japanese Makeup Haul video on my channel! Usually when I go to Japan I spend SO much money on makeup! I find that Japanese makeup is really cheap but also really good quality. Here are the items that I bought when I was in Japan! Some of the best Japanese makeup items!

If you guys haven't seen the video yet, it is at the bottom of this blog post, but for now I am going to blog about the items I bought!

Sailor Moon Miracle Romance Eyeliner



I bought the eyeliner last year in Japan but this year it was released with a lid! It's SOO cute that I had to get it! I reviewed the eyeliner last year and I really did like it, but I found that it did dry up much quicker than my other eyeliners :(

Daiso Powder Foundation

I decided to buy a bunch of makeup from the 100 yen store! I've never tried it before so I decided to buy a whole bunch so I can film a 100yen makeup challenge! hehe.

Heroine Make Volume and Curl Mascara

vlcsnap-2015-05-31-21h22m33s228

I absolutely loved the Herione Make Long & Curl Mascara so I decided to try the volume version! Unfortunately I didn't like the volume one as much, the long and curl one is so much better!

Heroine Make Volume Curl Mascara 



They also came out with a super waterproof version so I was interested to try it out. To be honest I don't really recommend this because it's even harder to remove and the volume one isn't great :(

D.U.P Brown Mix Lashes 913 



These are my favourite lashes! I can wear them all day, they are super comfortable and look really natural as well!

Diamond Lash Demi Lashes 



I love demi lashes since they look a lot more natural! They are also super easy to apply and it's quite cheap since they last a very long time!

Diamond Lash Honey Eyes 



I got these because I wanted to do more of a gyaru makeup look. I don't really use bottom lashes much because I find they make me look just a bit creepy! But these ones are more natural!

KORRES Lip Butter



I got this in Japan but it's a Greek brand. I absolutely LOVE this! You can use it as a blush as well as a lipbalm, super moisturizing and love the pigmentation!

KORRES Mandarin Lip Butter Stick

Jill Stuart Stay True Gel Eyeliner 



I got this eyeliner at the airport! I wasn't planning on buying Jill Stuart makeup but I had a lot of time at the airport so I decided to go check it out. I tried out this gel eyeliner and I LOVED how creamy it was so I just had to get it!

Jill Stuart Forever Juicy Oil Rouge 



Isn't this the most GORGEOUS lipgloss packaging ever?!? I LOVE it so much and the quality is awesome!!

Biore Nose Strips


I really wanted to get rid of my blackheads so I decided to try out the Biore nose strips! Haven't actually tried them out yet though so hope they are good!

Jill Stuart Lasting Gel Eyeliner 03 Cosmic Navy Review

Hi everyone!

Today I'm going to be reviewing the Jill Stuart Lasting Gel Eyeliner in 03 Cosmic Navy. I don't really use gel eyeliners, I prefer liquid but I find that gel eyeliners work best if you want to do smokey eye looks.

I got this in Cosmic Navy because I already have a black eyeliner (MAC Fluidline Blacktrack). I wanted something different and the colour looks really nice!

Applying:

I recommend you applying with a thin eyeliner brush. I have the Jill Stuart eyeliner brush but I find that it doesn't work well at all. I prefer using the MAC angled eyeliner brush since it gives you very precise lines.

Final Look:

Final Verdict
Pros:
- Eyeliner is very creamy and glides on very easily
- Very pigmented, colour comes on really well

Cons:
- A bit expensive and hard to get your hands on
- Smudges a bit easily but if you want to go for a smokey eye look it is easy to smudge it out

01/04/15 First Day in Seoul

Hi everyone!

It's been so long since I last blogged. I kind of stopped blogging because life just got really busy and I just wanted to focus more on Youtube. However I have sooo much to blog about since I just came back from Korea/Japan so hopefully there will be more regular blog posts from now on!

I left Perth airport. I pretty much packed empty, I planned to buy everything in Korea and Japan

Was hungry so I decided to get something quick to eat. Didn't have much time so I bought some quick takeaway.

I took the bus to my hotel... however I missed my bus stop because the other tourists were being so loud on the bus. I had all my luggage with me so I decided to just take a taxi to the hotel since it was somewhere close by. So yes, the ride was 5 minutes... I saw on the meter it was 4300won which is approximately $5. I gave the driver 5000won and was going to tip him as well, but then he turned off the meter and told me it was 43000won. I was so confused since I only exchanged around $100 (I was planning on using my card in Korea). When the taxi driver realized I was thinking why it was so expensive, he zoomed off with my money. Real crappy start to my trip. I was so angry because I didn't really know the conversion of Korean won (first time in Korea, and I didn't have time to read up about it before my trip cos a lot of things happened). I should've taken a photo of the taxi... but oh well, I heard it has happened to a lot of people so beware of taxi scams in Korea.

Anyway, I got to the hotel in the end in one piece, and then settled down a bit before heading out. The first day was to do some sightseeing so first stop was Changdeokgung (창덕궁).

To enter it was like $3? There wasn't really much to do in there, it's huge and you can just walk around and enjoy the nice sights
