Makeup Forever Rouge Artist Intense in 32 Review

Hey guys!

Today I'm going to be reviewing Makeup Forever's Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick in 32!

I was gifted this from one of my Youtube friends, Shirley Wu! Check out her channel!

I was talking to Shirley a long time ago when we were doing a makeup swap, and she asked me if I've ever tried Makeup Forever before. I never have because you can't get the products in Australia, so when she went to IMATS LA a few years ago she picked some stuff up for me!

One of the Makeup Forever items she got me was the Rouge Artist Intense lipstick

I really like the packaging, really simple and sleek.

Swatch:
vlcsnap-2014-04-15-17h26m06s204
As you can see on the swatch, it's really pigmented

vlcsnap-2014-04-15-17h25m39s192
vlcsnap-2014-04-15-17h25m51s63
See how matte it is?

Overally I was really impressed with this lipstick! I've tried matte lipsticks before and I never liked them but this one I did. It's not drying at all compared to the other matte lipsticks.


Pros:
- Very matte and not drying at all!
- Very pigmented

Cons:
- Has that weird lipstick odour. Not sure if you guys know what I'm on about, but I find that Western lipsticks have this weird lipstick smell.
- Expensive and hard to get if you are not in the US
- Because it is a matte lipstick, if your lips aren't moisturized enough then it will be a bit hard to apply

Back to School Outfit Ideas 2015

It's almost back to school time for those starting school again after the summer holidays, so I decided to do a Back to School lookbook to give you guys ideas!

Usually I dress fully decked out in Liz Lisa, but lately my style has changed a bit. I still love the cute Japanese fashion but I have been mixing it up with other things such as jeans! I think this mix is perfect for school!

If you guys haven't seen the video yet, here it is:


The outfits:

Outfit 1:
vlcsnap-2015-08-09-01h49m42s0

Blouse: Taobao
Cardigan: Taobao
Pants: Valley Girl

Absolutely LOVE this outfit! The blouse and cardigan I got recently on Taobao. They are replicas from the Sailor Moon TRALALA collaboration! I paired it with a pair of black jeans which go really well together! The full Sailor Moon outfit is really cute but maybe a bit too cute to wear out to school haha.

If you guys haven't seen my Taobao Haul yet, here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PqHgjZm4_I

Outfit 2:
vlcsnap-2015-08-09-22h47m31s12

This is more of a "mature" outfit. I love the top I got from Chicabooti, it goes well with so many outfits! I'm in love with jeggings lately since they are so comfortable!

Top: Chicabooti
Blazer: Forever New
Jeggings: Cotton On

Outfit 3:

One Piece: Taobao

Fairy Drops Platinum Mascara Waterproof Type

Hi everyone!

Today I'm going to be reviewing another one of my favourite mascaras ever! This one is the Fairy Drops Platinum Mascara (Waterproof Type). These came in 2 different types, Waterproof and Film type. I personally like the Film type better because I feel that it lenghtens better than the waterproof type, however this one is still really good! The problem is.. I have no idea where to buy Fairy Drops anymore in Japan :( I used to buy them in PLAZA but they stopped selling Fairy Drops. Went to the website and tried different stores that said they sold Fairy Drops at... but no where to be found :( I asked one of the staff at a Donkihote if they knew why they stopped selling and she said she didn't even realize. If anyone knows where I can buy Fairy Drops mascaras please let me know because I really want to get some more T_T

vlcsnap-2014-04-15-16h49m13s87

Anyway the packaging is really nice
vlcsnap-2014-04-15-16h47m07s116

And the wand is curved which makes it easier to applyvlcsnap-2014-04-15-16h47m23s13

Left eye: No mascara, Right eye: mascara
vlcsnap-2014-04-15-16h47m46s242

Both eyes with mascara
vlcsnap-2014-04-15-16h49m41s118
Makes quite a difference!

Final Verdict:
I love this mascara because it lenghtens well and also adds volume. I find it hard to find mascaras that will lengthen my short lashes so I find Asian mascaras work the best for me. It just sucks how I can't find these anywhere anymore! It is definitely one of my all time favourite mascaras!

Pros:
- Lengthens well and gives good volume
- Easy to remove

Cons:
- SO hard to find!
- Expensive in Japan (close to $20) but I got this one in Hong Kong for around $11
- Dries out quite quickly

You can purchase the mascara from the links below:

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 :(

You can get the eyeliner here: http://amzn.to/1HoPLrG


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.


Daiso Eyeshadow



Daiso Eyeliner



Daiso Mascara



Daiso Blush




Dolly Wink Brown Pencil Eyeliner

Love Switch Pink Brown Eyeliner

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!

Get the mascara here: http://amzn.to/1AqBRrC

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!

Get the lashes here: http://amzn.to/1HoQ7yg

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!

Get the lashes here: http://amzn.to/1HoQyZG

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!

Get the lashes here: http://amzn.to/1HBigb4

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!

Get the lip balm here: http://amzn.to/1HoQzN8

KORRES Mandarin Lip Butter Stick 

vlcsnap-2015-05-31-21h23m28s7

I LOVE this colour, the lipstick is also super moisturizing!

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.

vlcsnap-2014-04-15-16h21m40s187
vlcsnap-2014-04-15-16h21m53s82

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!

Swatch:

Applying:
vlcsnap-2014-04-15-16h22m08s228
vlcsnap-2014-04-15-16h22m30s190

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:
vlcsnap-2014-04-15-16h23m35s71

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).
