8 more months! Well..not really, more like 8-1/2 months left in Korea.
So I ended up not seeing Bolt, so sad...I didn't think that many people would be watching movies on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. According to my co-teacher, most of the theatres take reservations for ticket purchase...blah I say! Did you know that in Korea when you purchase a movie ticket, you don't wait in line. Instead, you take number and wander around the theatre till it's your turn. I like that idea.
Remember from me last post I talked about the Smile Cheek Pearls? Well I tried as hard as I could to take a picture with it on. I'm not very good at taking self pictures without making myself look chubby XD Also, my nose is huge... soooo...cellphone cameras don't do justice for me.
This was just a look that I usually do, especially if I don't feel like having noticable colors on my eyes, but this time I added the EH Smile Cheek Pearls to show everyone what it looks like. I'm starting to use the pearls on top of my blush everyday, I love the pearly sheen it leaves. I don't think you'd really notice it cuz of the picture quality, but it's there ~.^
The Items: (I should take a picture of the items next time to make it easier than listing everything)
Majolica Majorca BR742
KATE Square Cut Liner BR3
Coffret D'or BE-178
T'estimo blush in PK-18
Skinfood Aloe Sun BB Cream #2
Etude House Smile Cheek Pearls
Lavshuca Loose Powder Lucent
I always apply my blush (and the Cheek Pearls) on an angle towards the hair line to help soften the roundness of my face.
Moving on, I got a few samples of the Skinfood Black Sesame Hot Mask and I finally decided to try it out. Thank goodness I didn't buy the whole thing because this irritated my face before it was time to wash it off @__@
The Black Sesame Hot Mask is one of Skinfood's newest addition to the face packs.
"The mask opens up pores with warm heat of sald and sugar powder and eliminates waste material in a rough skin affected by the accumulated keratin. It provides an amazing silkiness to skin with nourishing black sesame extract"
These English translations crack me up. After cleansing your skin, you apply the mask while your face is still damp and massage it slightly. You leave it on for 3-5 minutes then rinse off and voila!
Well, the bad news is there was no warmth whatsoever. It smelled like a really strange black sesame soup dessert thing and it also irritated my skin. I don't think I do well with Skinfood's wash off packs. My skin is too sensitive to the masks that I don't even want to try any other wash off packs. I've tried the Herb Green Tea Pack and washed it off before I even fully applied it because it felt kinda burn-y.
Good news is, you now know what the mask looks like and how I don't like it. XD
This stuff looks like a black gooey mess. The rough sesame seeds make it difficult to spread and massage it evenly. I left it on for 5 minutes, I really shouldn't have as it didn't feel too nice. Looks nasty doesn't it. You can notice my face was starting to get a bit pink because of the mask >_<
Hmmm..I don't seem to look that different without makeup hehe
I hope everyone had a fun New Year's. I was thinking about when my makeup obsession started and it was in the fall of 2007. I'm pretty sure it was when I discovered the Muse's blog and the lovely Majolica Majorca and Lavshuca winter palette. I liked makeup prior to that but never really thought about the colors, application etc etc. It's so exciting now! XD I think my resolution should be only to buy makeup pieces I need.
