Clarisonic Skin Care Brush System for $149

Heads up ladies, I just found this great deal for ya!!
Costco is having the Clarisonic Skin Care Brush System for ONLY $149.99. This includes 2 brush heads and 1 Clarisonic daily cleanser (2oz) plus FREE SHIPPING + HANDLING.

This is a GREAT deal compare to many other retailers. Sephora is selling this same skin care brush system for $195 which is about the same price that I got mine.

I've been using Clarisonic Skin Care Brush for a little over 2 weeks now so it's premature to say whether it works on improving my skin or not. But if you read reviews online, people are IN LOVE with this brush.

CLICK HERE for the Ingredients list
Korea Blemish Balm CREAM

Here's how big it is:
(50g/1.69 fl. oz.)

The consistency on L'egere BB cream reminds me of one of my favorite foundations, Gorgio Armani Face Fabric Foundation. However, GA Face fabric foundation is much softer and lighter in texture. And L'egere BB cream is a little thicker and firmer. It's a little darker in color which I was afraid at first since my skin tone is on the fair side. But once applied and blended on the skin, it's rather light.
Korea Blemish Balm CREAM

Here's a before and after picture:
(look at how much lighter my skin look)

-Feels really light compare to many other liquid foundation
-Coverage is fair-good depending on how many application you put on. As you can see on the before and after picture, it helps hide the pores and blemishes on my skin.
-Makes your skin glow
-Brightens your skin
-Very natural looking

-Availability: I got this from an Ebay's seller that both Kimberly & Fuz recommended. And so far, this is the only online spot that we saw carry this bb cream.
-Like most other bb creams, it's limited to only lighter shades. So if you have darker skin tone this may not be for you.
-I have combination skin and my t-zones does gets oily while wearing this.  Need to blotch several times a day.

OVERALL: I think this is a good bb cream.  I love how light it is yet it gives such a natural glow to your face.  It doesn't dry nor make my combination skin look too oily. Compared to liquid foundation, it's not as thick and heavy; it also has medium coverage for skin imperfections.  I like L'egere BB cream better than my other liquid foundations except for the GA Face Fabric Foundation though. GA foundation is still unbeatable in my definition since it's so much lighter and gives me that natural glow that I can't hardly find in other foundations.

I've heard of BB cream a while back and have been wanting to try it for so long. However, there are so many different kinds out there and I was always reluctant to TEST and TRIAL. Thanks to
Fuz for her thorough review. It inspired me to give it a go!!!

Next on my BB cream Test n trial list are: SkinFood Mushroom Blemish Balm, Missha M Perfect Cover, BRTC Perfect Recover for acne, Skin79, and Etude House....and etc...etc...

Stila Eye Shadow Duo Sets for $12.99 at Costco

Stila Eye Shadow Duo Sets

I went to Costco (Cypress location in CA) yesterday looking for the Twilight Saga. Yep, I always get new books at Costco. They always have the newest selection of best selling authors. But they didn't have the Twilight :[

Anyway, I spotted Stila Eye Shadow Duo Sets for ONLY $12.99 (I'm guessing on the cents). And to my surprised they still have a large number left. Whooaaaaa....this is such a steal since Sephora is selling ONE eyeshadow duo for $20. Yep, with the price of one duo at Sephora you can get almost two of this sets at Costco!!!

The set comes with 6 duo eyeshadows:

K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Eyeliner Review

After reading Kimberly Tia's review on K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Eyeliner, I was convinced that this baby works magic! LOL. I was excited to spot this at Matsuwa although I wish they carry the pink version :/

Apparently, this is Japan's top selling eyeliner. The description on the back claimed that: This quick-drying liquid eyeliner has a special brush tip and high water resistant polymers, giving you superb control for creating remarkable smudge-resistant effects. The result: eyes become more defined and focused. It is a film type eyeliner. The water resistant coat polymer keeps fine eyelines 24 hours. You'll feel like "1 Day Tatoo!" Also, gentle for your eyelashes; containing camomile extracts and panthenol.

This is how the package looks like:

The pointy brush tip makes it so easy to apply the eyeliner. You can easily create a nice thin line or build a thick nice line for a more defined look.
K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Eyeliner Review
Overall, I'm impressed with this eyeliner. Leave it up to the Japanese to think of great inventions!! I applied this in the morning and by evening time, it's still very much the same without any touch-up.

This is how it looks on me:
K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Eyeliner Review

It's great for those who are going for the doll-eye or cat eye look. It will make your eye pop and stand out. And even look rounder and bigger in a sense.  It's also great for those who have trouble lining your eyes perfectly.  The design is very much similar to a pen.  So imagine holding a pen (with very tight bristles) in your hand and drawing.  It's much easier than regular eyeliner with soft bristles.

Initially, I was concern with how to take off the eyeliner at the end of the day without scrubbing and irritating the fragile eye areas. But it was actually easier than I thought. It is recommend to remove with warm water however, I didn't do that. I used Clinique Take A Day Off Makeup Remover and it was a very gentle process. No scrub, no rub, and no pain. phew~

Overall, I love it. Will definitely repurchase. Thanks Kimberly for this great recomendation!
I got mine at Mitsuwa for $16.99
You can get it online at Fabaocanada, Arivial, Beautymark
but the cheapest I've found is Akinaiblog

I've never bought anything from those websites so please do your own research before buying.

On the lips:
-Smashbox Wicked Lovely (my current favorite lipgloss)

I'm currently doing Face Exercise from Carole Maggio's book, Facercise.
Will let you know if it works/not. LOL.

Everything about this space, including the cosmetics, embodies the beauty & youth described in a romantic fairy tale.

Clinique Haul

I must say, out of all my online purchase, I had the best experience with
They always arrived quickly and I never have any damaging problem. Their customer service is also awesome.

I actually got this package several days ago but didn't have a chance to really take a good look at it. So when I opened it today, it seemed like it just came in this morning.

My order:

I got Clinique blended face powder and brush, touch tint for eyes (makeup base), stay-matte sheer pressed powder, super city block, and superbalanced makeup foundation.

And these are the extra goodies that came along with it. I think I got a little bit more of everything here.....which is a good feeling!!!

I got myself some Purederm face mask the other day. Have anyone ever tried this? The packing looks so cute. I think there are about 10 different masks but I only got 5 here. Lets see how well this work.

I got a problem. I'm really suck when it comes to styling with scarf. I'm never pleased with how it looks...

Sometimes I like it like this....

but I also thought that this way is nicer....

Anyway, I'm never settled when it comes to's really is an issue I tell ya!

The weather here in Cali is getting colder which made me sad :(
I don't like cold weather. I wish I could move elsewhere during these months.
So whenever I woke up to a day full of sunshine...I feel like I need to take advantage of it.
I love going to the beach on warm and sunny days...
I love to sit under the sun...feel the ocean breeze...grasping the fresh air...

Isn't it beautiful? Why must summer ends??? why why why?!!!

What's your favorite season? I bet you already know mine :)
