Fun With My Lumix & FOTD

It's been a while since I did a FOTD, but now that I have a new camera, it's so much easier and more clear. I used my new MUFE and Sephora e/l. I think I understand why the MUFE e/l is Fuz's HG. It's sooooo smooth and it didn't even budge! The Sephora e/l isn't as great because I noticed a wee bit of fading a smudging. I'm sure it was the Sephora liner because by the end of the day, there wasn't as much on my eye as the morning.
I didn't used foundation today because I don't like how I look so pale. Again...darn those masks! I probably won't start using foundation until my skin turns back to normal.

I made a meatball bun today, it's not really big and you can't see it on top of my head because my hair isn't super long. The lighting in my box makes it so difficult to take pictures.

A close up of my nails. I used the Majolica Majorca nail polish in GR102 to do a gradient look. I love this color!

I have a whole bunch of pictures I took around Myeong Dong. I can't seem to not go there every weekend because it's so boring anywhere else.

Yup, foie gras macaroons. I saw these in the Hyundai Department Store. There are a ton of pastry shops, food stands and a grocery store. There were also fruit baskets for $160 and heart shaped strawberries. The cupcakes are so cute! They're 4300won each and they're not that big. I didn't get a chance to get them.

i love the nails! :)

and all that food! They're too cute to eat!

Hahha it's okay to have chubby cheeks! They're cute! But you have noticeable cheek bones though! And the blush color you used is real pretty on ya!

MUFE aqua eyes does smudge some on me. It's not nearly as bad as some other liners though, it def works the best out of everything I've tried. I'm using the K-palette liner today. No smudges but it did fade a tad bit. I really like it! It looks natural for a liquid liner!

Hahah unfortunate.. was almost $300, but not quite haha. My first total on gooddealer was $400+, so I cut back haha.

P&J isn't that bad. L/s are $20, which is cheap compared to Givenchy, Dior, etc. Their skincare items are in the $30-40 range which is quite reasonable. I bought 3 items; 2 l/s and 1 foundation.

Haha but don't you think most expensive department store brands are worth the price? If the prices were dirt cheap, wouldn't you wonder why that is.. maybe they wouldn't be as popular. haha, from an economic standpoint =P. I'm a nerd, I know!

Hrm.. I don't really spend money on clothes anymore. I can't remember the last time I bought clothing haha. So I feel somewhat justified in buying more cosmetics because of that. But because I'm buying more Japanese cosmetics, I've cut back on American brands. So I am being more careful with my spending haha.

But of course, I consider value and size when purchasing. For example, Nars shadows are more expensive, but a $32 duo is only $16 each, which is $2 more than a single MAC shadow and the quality is worth the price. So I feel justified in spending haha.

Some items I buy because I need, some I buy because I'm curious, and some are just a guilty pleasure. Nonetheless, I'm really good about returning and exchanging items I don't end up liking. So I feel like my money isn't ever wasted. I try to purchase cosmetics from places like Nordstrom and Sephora, where they have awesome return policies.

I wrote an essay.. I know haha.

Eeks! That looks so delicious!! How do you like Seoul? I've never been there, but would love to travel to there one day. =)

fuzkittie said...

YOu look ADORABLE, I just wanna pinch your cheeks like an old grandma does to her grandchild... puahahahaa! Do you trim your own bangs? They look REALLY nice! <3

Yay meatball bun! Haha, I think we're the only people who call it the meatball bun! :p Oh, I'm so glad you like MUFE liner, haha! If you don't get that "terrorist" package I sent you, I'm gonna HAVE TO send you something else after you come back from HK! MUST! So let me know.

Mmmmmm the cupcakes look so goooood, why is everything so much better in Asia?! xD

fuzkittie said...

Forgot to tell you, I think peachy blushes can be used ANYTIME! They're so natural and nice looking! :] Oh, you should totally get a cbox!!!

i did see federer cry! and then i wanted to cry!

Hahha you definitely have a face shape! Oh I got the face creator! It does look complicated, yet so fascinating at the same time so I'm gonna try it out! Contouring doesn't change your face that much, but I find contouring to be quite flattering sometimes. I still go lazy days without it and it's fine.

I do tight line with the MUFE.. not on the waterline right? It works really well tight lining the top! Hrm try it again? I really love it for tight lining.

Hahaha awww it's so sweet of Tim to put $ into your bank to help you pay your card!

Yup! P&J lippies are suppose to be real nice quality! Maquillage lippie are $30+, and coffret d'or ones are around $25.

I was an econ major =P haha
