Lovely Surprises and Tagged!

I can't stop scratching those damn mosquito bites!!!!!!! It's driving me insane and it's so bad for my skinn!!! ARRRRGGHHH!!!!!
A package from Angie! You're so uber sweet to send me all these goodies! I was quite surprised actually. Thankq so much Angie!!!!! She included some NYX e/s and I have never tried NYX before so I'm curious to know how they work out. The browns are perfect since I'm opting for a more neutal look these days. I can't wait to try the Mario Badescu items too! Thanks again!

A package from Cuttibebe. This was from our swap and I haven't sent out your package yet, sorry!!! I'm going to the post office today...well earlier today because this is a scheduled post =p I hope you get it soon! Until then, I will hold off from opening it! Well..maybe a peek XD LOOK!! The Korean customs opened it!!!!!! Another makeup terrorism threat from the States.

I was tagged by Ning Star!

What’s your favorite eye shadow color to wear?
Pinks,and Browns (I know...boring huh?) and sometimes Purples

What’s the one product you wouldn’t leave your house without?
Blotting sheets and a mirror. My T-zone is a mess by mid day =p Are those products? If not, then it would be the makeup palette and liner I'm using for the day just for touch ups.

What’s your favorite makeup look – high drama OR natural?
I like natural cuz I don't wanna look sooo dramatically different without makeup. Sometimes I layer on a bit more color.

Which feature do you play up the most?
Eyes of course, I'm not good at doing the whole blush face sculpting thing for my cheeks.

Which feature do you try to downplay/cover up?
Dark circles..ewww...but I still think they're noticable at times.

Your favorite makeup brand, if you could pick only ONE to exist?
Right now it's probably P&J. I just spent a poop load of money on it.

Which product have you re-purchased OVER and OVER again?
Imju Dejavu Fiberwig Mascara. I've been using it for at least 4 years (not the same tube of course haha). You should seriously give it a try. Although it doesn't thicken lashes as much as you might think, it really lengthens very well. Best part..it stays put and it's easier to remove than the MM mascaras.

Which product would you NEVER repurchase again and why?
Covergirl lipsticks and lipglosses...blecchh!! They're so drying!

One beauty treatment you would always PAY to have done?
My nails, but I've only done them once and realized I wasn't meant to have fake nails. I don't take care of my hands and I tend to break my real nails a lot haha.

One beauty treatment you would NEVER pay to have done?
Facials that involve blackhead removal, they hurt sooo much!!!!!

One beauty trick you can share with everyone:
I don't really have any, sorry! But I do use those non Q-tip brand q-tips things, the Asian ones, because the cotton tends to stay put instead of going into my eye and under my contacts when I'm trying to fix eyeshadow. Q-tips suck, but I'm still stuck with half a box.

Best advice you've ever been given regarding beauty and makeup?
Fuz's way of applying cream/liquid foundation. She does that patting kinda motion and I found that it helps in preventing flakiness on my cheeks. Check out her vids!

I'm tagging Eri and Beautify My Soul!!

While in HK, I heard Namie Amuro's latest song (Do Me More) soo many times. I thought I'd share the video with everyone since it makes me think of Kim Tia and Yumeko!

ning * star said...

U must try out the lip rescue.. it is very great for me... oh,Boscia..I wanna try it too..hehe...
I wanna try some P&J too,but I have no idea how to get them >.<

miemiemie said...

oooh you'll love NYX single shadows..some are chalky but some are pretty pigmented :)

xphoenix06 said...

I see you're getting more love ^-^ I agree CG lippies and glosses are drying. I'm more into neutral looks too but only cuz I can't apply makeup well to do the high drama. I try but I know I need alot more practice. Interesting MV I like the makeup on her and her backup dancers. I wish I could understand the entire song though.
Ahaha LOL, I know I'm the same too. Right now I'm wishing/hoping that it'll get warmer soon but when it comes to summer I'm wanting cooler weather. =D
I think the bb cream I did on the review on is the only bb cream from Missha w/ no spf in it. I think this bb cream was one of the first bb creams that came out. I know it's the first bb cream released by Missha. I think the better version to this bb cream would be Missha M Vita bb cream. Looks just like this one except it's bottle is gold instead of siiver and it has spf in it.

LOL more US package terrorism!!

Bunnie said...

Yeah, I'm excited to get the Cargo pressed powder as well! I saw great reviews on it, but I've never tried any Cargo products so I don't know much about the brand. I was looking for a perfect pressed powder for touch ups and I've tried a lot. I wouldn't loved for Dior to work, since the packaging is so pretty haha. However, the shades aren't beige enough, they're kind of pinkish. I was about to order the YSL one because I swatched it over primer and it looks nice, but it has a hint of shimmer, which I don't really want because my t-zone tends to get a little oily. Okay, I ramble too much! haha

angie519 said...

Aww the song does remind me of Yumeko and Tia!! Hahaha

I'm glad you like everything! I hope you figure out which cleansing oil works for you!

Oh I wanna know what Cuttibebe got you!!!!!!

Hahha I always use Q-tips because I go through like 10 a day and Costco sells them in bulk =P

M said...

i want a hat just like that one in the amuro video haha

oh the polish is so pretty!

beautybitch said...

I prefer the cotton buds in Korea as the ones I used to buy in England were rubbish and also did that flaking off in the eye thing which is sooo vile when you can FEEL it on your eye!

Let us know how the NYX shadows work out. I hear people raving about them all over blogs, youtube and MUA but I've never had the chance to try them properly.

Miss Yaya said...

hooray for swaps! will wait to see whats in the other one :)

miemiemie said...

it makes you feel a bit sad and pissed at the same time..if only you knew they were "that" similar..haha..at least in some countries you can return it :) here in my country??? NEVER. you can NEVER return a USED item :) haha sucks to be here

kawaiikao said...

Ladyfei♡ said...
