MAC Mineralize Blush Warm Soul Review

12:40:00 AM 0 Comments A+ a-

Hi everyone!

Today I'm going to be reviewing the MAC Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul. I got this blush when I went to San Francisco for about $15! (Which is super cheap compared to Australia, it's more than double the price here :( ) I really wanted a blush from MAC but didn't know which one. I like natural blushes since they go well with almost everything and you can wear it everyday!


This one is my first MAC blush and I am absolutely loving it!

With no blush:

Applying blush:

Final Look:
I just love how natural it looks!

- Super natural and great for everyday wear
- Lasts all day!

- Expensive (in Australia, so yeah best to buy it overseas if you're Australian)
- The packaging is kinda not... sturdy enough. If you look at the photo with my MAC lid up, the plastic bit actually fell off and I can't put it back together again :(

Hi everyone!

It's been super hot lately in Perth! I actually like it because it means more beach time for me! hehe. Here is an outfit I wore a few days ago when just hanging out with some friends!



The top is from ARROW, one of my favourite places to shop in Japan for blouses. They always have the cutest blouses there! The shorts are from Pinky Girls. I absolutely love them! The shoes are from Feminine Cafe. I really want more shoes that I can wear in the summer haha T_T I have way too many boots!

If you like this outfit then please hype it on Lookbook!

Liz Lisa 2015 Fukubukuro Reveal!

4:18:00 PM 8 Comments A+ a-

Hi everyone!

Just yesterday Liz Lisa released what will be inside the 2015 Fukubukuros so I thought I'd share them with you today!

They revealed what will be in all the bags except for the Web Limited bag.

First up is the 20,000yen bags.

The pink version:


I'm glad I didn't get this bag. I wasn't thinking about it anyway since the bag wasn't really cute looking and it's something I probably won't use. The items inside are kind of... meh to me. They seem a bit too plain for Liz Lisa clothes.

The white version:


I like this one better than the pink bag. The clothes are a lot cuter. For some reason though, I feel that the items in this bag are items they couldn't sell in last year's winter collection. The skirt and the sweater on the right look really familiar... Still, I think that this bag has clothes that are much cuter than the pink one.

Next up is the small suitcase, the one I ordered.


To be honest the first time I saw the items I was a bit disappointed. The coat is almost identical to the one from last year's lucky bag, but just a bit shorter. The camisole... I don't know but I don't like it when Liz Lisa includes camisoles in their lucky bags. I have way too many of them and you feel that you don't really get much out of a camisole. The dress is cute though, so at least I like something in the bag! The coat I do like as well but the camisole... I'll find some use for it lol.

Last one is the More More 3 Way bag

I'm SO glad I didn't get this bag. I was so close to getting it because you can order it with the small suitcase. The reason? Liz Lisa sold a dress identical to that in last year's winter collection which I already have. The dress is cute so I really do like it, but I already have one identical to it. The cardigan I also have something almost identical when Liz Lisa went to Paris. Cute items in here, but I'm glad I didn't get it since I already have those items!

What do you guys think of the lucky bags now that they've been revealed?

Etude House Pink Tonic Lip Gloss Review

5:24:00 PM 3 Comments A+ a-

Today I'm going to be reviewing one of my favourite lipglosses, the Etude House Pink Lip Gloss!


I picked out this item myself when I did a makeup video for If you use the coupon code "KIMDAO" you will get 10% off your order :)

Back then I really wanted to try out more Korean cosmetics so I chose this one! I'm glad I did!

Note: I did receive this for free from imomoko but I'm not getting paid to do any reviews for it.

The packaging is a bit worn out, I always keep it in my makeup bag




Final Verdict:
I've always liked lipglosses more than lipsticks. I find that with lipglosses the colour stays on longer. Even if it comes out, there is still a bit of colour left behind on your lips. This lipgloss is super pigmented and I love applying this on top of my other lipsticks!

- Very pigmented
- Colour stays on your lips even if the lipgloss rubs off
- Cheap!

- I really can't think of one!

Majolica Majorca Lash Bone Black Fiber Primer Review

7:44:00 PM 7 Comments A+ a-

Hey guys!

Today I'm going to be reviewing an eyelash primer from Majolica Majorca. The Lash Bone Fiber Primer! Most of you guys know that Majolica Majorca do make one of the best mascaras, but they are very hard to remove. However they do lengthen and gives you great volume. I decided to get the eyelash primer


Packaging is very similar to the Majolica Majorca Lash Expander mascara, but in white.

Left eye: None
Right eye: Primer
As you can see.. my right eye is quite clumpy and that is the side with the mascara base.

Final Verdict:
I don't recommend this at all. It makes your lashes go really hard to the point where it starts hurting when you blink because your lashes are just too thick. It also does look quite clumpy as well, I personally think it looks better without it.

- ... honestly I can't think of a pro for this item

- I find that it makes your lashes too hard and it hurts throughout the day
- It's so damn hard to remove
- Clumps your lashes

If you're interested to try it out then you can find it here:

Liz Lisa 2015 Fukubukuro Lucky Bags

6:41:00 PM 20 Comments A+ a-


Hey guys!

The Liz Lisa 2015 Fukubukuros were announced today! I logged in pretty much straight away when they were released to quickly put an order in! haha.

For those of you who don't know what a Fukubukuro is, it is a "lucky pack" that they sell on New Year's day in Japan. A "lucky pack" usually has a whole bunch of items inside the bag that is usually worth more than the price you're paying. Heaps of people line up for the Fukubukuros every year! Heaps of stores in Japan do Fukubukuros (Almost all the Shibuya109 brands, Apple Store, variety stores etc).

Last year I was able to get the Fukubukuro that I wanted! Luckily I knew some people working at the Liz Lisa head office so I got them to save me one! Here is an unboxing video that I made:

Anyway! I'm not sure when I will be back in Japan so I decided to just preorder a Fukubukuro myself! Here are the ones they released this year!

Rose Ribbon Carry Suitcase



This is a web limited edition item. I was going to get this but decided not to, mainly because well... I don't need more suitcases and shipping will be expensive :( Also, I think it will be quite similar to the one I already have. The price is ¥27,000 including tax for the item which is quite expensive. It will have 6 items that come in it I believe.

Pure Pure Big Tote


This one I was kind of surprised at because it's really... plain. It comes in 2 colours, a white and a pink and it is ¥21,600 including tax for one of them. Pretty expensive so I was a bit disappointed in this one. It says there are 5 items in a bag and you can do 2 different coordinates with them.

More More 3 Way Bag


Who is coming up with these weird names? haha. The More More bag is ¥5,400 including tax and will have 3 items in the bag. One dress and 2 other items. The bag is quite cute. I know I won't use it though since I bought a Liz Lisa Fukubukuro 2 years ago in a similar bag and I never used it T_T

Koro Koro Stripe Rose Carry Suitcase


This is the one I bought because it's SO FREAKING ADORABLE!!! Yeah, I know I said I didn't need another suitcase but this is a mini one (I might be able to find some use... haha). This one is ¥16,200 with the tax included. It will have coat inside it and 3 other items. I'm a sucker for vintage rose patterns so I was sold the second I saw it haha. I ordered this straight away before the site crash so *phew*!

Koro Koro Stripe Rose Carry Suitcase & More More 3 Way Bag
There is an option where you can get both the Koro Koro suitcase and the More More bag together. I originally was going to get this because I thought it was cheaper, but nope it's the same price lol. Including tax it is ¥21,600.


Luckily I thought about it before I checked out :P I didn't really want the other bag so I just got the Koro Koro Stripe Rose Carry by itself.

Canmake Cream Cheek Blush in 01

8:44:00 PM 2 Comments A+ a-

Hi everyone!

Today I'm going to be reviewing the Canmake Cream Cheek Blush in 01. This is actually one of my first Japanese makeup items I owned. I got this blush on my first trip to Japan~ Back then I didn't know anything about Japanese makeup, but I saw a lot of people recommending this on blogs so I decided to get one~


Since I've had this for a few years now, the packaging has kind of worn off

With no blush on:

With blush:

Final Verdict:
This blush is really great in general. It's super cheap and it's one of the more popular Japanese products. You can get these pretty much anywhere in Japan and these are easy to buy online as well. The blush is really pigmented so you can choose to put either a lot of colour on your cheek, or just a tiny bit for a more natural look.

- Super cheap! Cost only around $5!
- Great pigmentation
- Can do natural or go more in colour
- Lots of colours to choose from!
- Easy to buy online

- Sometimes it's easy to apply too much product on

You can purchase the blush here:

OOTD: Girly Summer Dress

12:04:00 PM 4 Comments A+ a-

Hi everyone!

Hope that you've all been well! I've been busy again as I recently started a new job.. which means I now have even less time to spend on my videos and blog :( I need to try manage my time better since I always am thinking about my blog and how much I've been neglecting it!

Anyway! Unfortunately now that I have to wear business clothes to work, I won't really have as much time to wear my Liz Lisa clothes :( But if you guys are interested I can do outfits of my work clothes?

Today I'm going to share a dress that I bought on the Liz Lisa official site a while ago. I loved the dress when I first saw it but never had a chance to wear it! It's starting to warm up now in Australia so I thought this was perfect to wear on a lazy Sunday where I took my dog out for a walk!



Dress is from Liz Lisa
Shoes are from Feminine Cafe

If you like this look please hype it on Lookbook!

Happy dog on her walk!

My Shoe Collection

1:29:00 AM 11 Comments A+ a-

Hey guys!

People have been requesting this video for a super long time now, so FINALLY I got around to filming it. I have a little obsession with buying shoes, especially since coming back from Japan for the first time! I never used to own many shoes before, my feet are small so I could never find the right sizes here in Australia. However, in Japan it is a little bit easier to find my size!

Here is the video!

In Australia I wear size 5 shoes (most sizes start at 6 in Australia :( ) And in Japan I wear size S. It's a bit strange that shoes in Japan come in size S, M and L! A lot of my shoes came from Liz Lisa because recently last year, Liz Lisa started selling Size S shoes!! Pretty much all my Liz Lisa shoes were all on sale so they were quite cheap when I got them :P

So~! Here are just some screencaps on my shoessss!

Forever New
I absolutely LOVE Forever New. They are pretty much one of the only brands in Australia that stock clothes in size 4 and shoes in size 5! Also their style is really girly, kind of like Liz Lisa!

Liz Lisa
These shoes came out for the Spring 2014 Collection. I fell in love with them straight away when I saw them! They are also the most comfortable heels I have ever owned, I can walk around them all day! There is a huge platform at the front so you aren't really tilting your feet that much.

Liz Lisa
I absolutely LOVE these shoes! Yes they are the same as the previous ones but just in a different colour. I loved the previous shoes so much that I waited until Liz Lisa was having a sale on their website, so I got these for half price!

Liz Lisa
LOVE these Liz Lisa wedges! The only problem is.... they freaking hurt after a few hours and give you blisters :( I tried sorting the issue out by putting insoles in them and all sorts of things but nothing has worked so far.. If anyone knows any tips or tricks let me know! I love them but I don't wear them out anymore because they just hurt so much :(

Liz Lisa
These shoes I got a few years ago. I didn't get them from a Liz Lisa store, but some stores in Ikebukuro Sunshine City in Tokyo. I have a feeling these are fake, but they were quite cheap if I can remember correctly! They look really pretty but are kinda hard to walk in :(

Liz Lisa
I also got these shoes from a store in Ikebukuro Sunshine City. I love them but they are also hard to walk around in... I think maybe because the size isn't right? They feel a bit big on me so its hard to walk in them

I absolutely love these! I was looking everywhere for just some simple heels that go well with a lot of my clothes! They are quite comfortable as well!

Wholesale dress
I got these like... 5 years ago? I don't really wear them much since they are hard to pair with my clothes (actually, not really I just kind of put them in the back of my closet haha). Maybe I should wear them out more!

These shoes are obviously way too big for me haha. They are a size 6 and I usually fit a size 5 in Australia. I got these for a photoshoot a few years ago, but yeah I don't wear these out at all cos they are way too big for me :(

Liz Lisa
Another pair that I bought at Ikebukuro Sunshine City! These are quite comfortable but the colour is a bit hard to match with things :(

I got these many years ago from a shop in Perth! They closed down now unfortunately but these are quite comfortable since the heel isn't very high. I don't wear them out much since they are kinda more formal shoes!

Wholesale Dress
Another one from Wholesale dress! I used to shop at that site a lot back in the day haha. I had these for about 5 years but I don't really wear these ones because they are so hard to walk in. You would think the ribbons would keep your feet in the shoe but it doesn't really do that at all :(

Wholesale Dress
A few years ago these style of shoes were super popular in the gyaru community. I got myself a pair from Wholesale Dress so it's a replica, but it's not too bad. My feet stay in it when I walk (lol) but the buckle is made quite cheap so it does come out quite easily

From Japan
Yeah, I bought them in Japan but I can't remember what shop they were from! They were quite cheap though. In Japan you can find stores that sell shoes for just $10 each! I got these shoes from one of those stores so I'm super happy! I do wear these quite often!

From Japan
And... knowing me if I do like something a lot I will buy the same item in different colours :P This one goes better with my Liz Lisa clothes!

Feminine Cafe
Feminine Cafe is one of my favourite shoe shops in Japan. I absolutely LOVE these wedges... however the back has a zip, and if I do zip up my shoes then I get blisters super easily.. Need to figure out how to stop that :(

Feminine Cafe
I LOVE these! I wore them so much and go well with so many coords!

Feminine Cafe
Yes, I wanted the same in another colour :P

From Japan
I love these little boots! They are so comfortable! The fur gets dirty quite easily (fake fur) but it still does feel quite soft!

Forever 21
These shoes are actually the very FIRST pair of shoes I bought in Japan, EVER! I went to Forever 21 and grabbed a pair for around $20! As you can probably see I have worn these heaps since the heel is kinda chipping away :P

I got these shoes about 5 years ago, and I still wear them sometimes to special events!

Feminine Cafe
I absolutely LOVED these shoes from Feminine Cafe. It was so soft and so comfortable to wear... except I accidentally tripped on it one day and one of the buckles broke :( So sad!

Feminine Cafe
LOVED these shoes since they go so well with my cords! As you can see I have worn them heaps and they're getting a bit worn out haha.

Love Contour
Got these in a store in Perth a realy long time ago. I haven't worn them much since they aren't very comfortable but I only got them for $5!

Wholesale Dress
These white boots are so cute! It's a shame that I don't wear them much anymore since they don't really suit my clothes :(

Got these on Taobao for around $20! So happy with them and they're great!

Got these in Shibuya109 and I loved them! Wore these quite a lot but not so much anymore since they are kinda worn out a bit :(

Liz Lisa
Got this in Ikebukuro in Sunshine City again! I got them the first time I was in Japan haha.

Liz Lisa
Another one I got in Sunshine City on my first trip to Japan! This one was quite unique since it had another part that you can add to the boots and they just become longer! However it wouldn't go on properly so I gave up and didn't put them on for the video lol.

Liz Lisa
These boots were actually my very first authentic Liz Lisa purchase! I got them in Hong Kong since it was all sold out in Japan when I was there. These boots were quite expensive... around $150? It's a shame cos I actually don't wear these much since they are too big for me. I bought them in size M since size S for Liz Lisa never existed back then. I might sell these actually T_T

Liz Lisa
Got these boots earlier this year! They were on sale so I got them for around $50? And FINALLY Liz Lisa releases shoes in size S!! I was so excited!

Liz Lisa
LOVE these boots so much! So pretty and finally something that fits me well! I actually got these after the brown ones (below) because they had a huge sale to get rid of their winter stock, so I got these for $30!

Liz Lisa
I got these before the pink, but I got these for around $50? They were on sale at Liz Lisa!

From Japan
Some black knee high boots from Japan! I actually bought this on impulse.. it was only 900 yen (Around $10) so I thought why not! hahaha. They are actually pretty good quality and quite comfortable as well!

Anyway that's the end of this long blog post lol. Anymore requests for blogs let me know!
