Berry Lens Yori Violet: Review

Please join my Korean skin care giveaway HERE. Ends March 31, 2015.

Today's review is going to be a little bit different from my usual makeup and skin care posts. Over a month ago, I received a pair of circle lenses from Berry Lens 5 Plus One Online Shop. Grace, the owner of the shop, kindly contacted me and sent me a pair for review. Of course, I agreed and she sent me the pair of my choice-- Yori Violet. I'll try to talk about the product in terms of color, enlargement and comfort.

 I got plano lenses. No grade.

 How it looks from the bottle

 Lens Specifications: Diameter- 14.5mm, Base Curve- 8.6 and expiration date

 Following the mark, it is very easy to open.

Nature Republic Honey and Herb Sleeping Pack: Review

Hi guys! In case you missed it, I'm having a giveaway in collaboration with Wishtrend and I am encouraging everyone to join. If you are interested in Korean skin care products, you're gonna love this giveaway. Link HERE.

Today, I am going to be reviewing a product from Nature Republic, my favorite Korean skin care and cosmetics brand. Specifically, I'll be reviewing the Nature Republic Honey and Herb Sleeping Pack. Before I go into that, I would like to ask you one thing. How effective, do you think, is the marketing strategy of giving away sample items after a purchase in a specific store? If you ask me, it is very effective. Honestly, I have found a lot of good skin care and cosmetics because of samples given away by different brands.

Let's take my favorite BB cream as an example-- the Nature Republic Snail Therapy BB Cream. It is, by far, the best performing BB Cream for my skin type and I mainly found out about it because I got a sample of it before. I didn't expect much from the product but because I already had the sample with me, I decided to try it out and fell in love with it on first use. I loved it so much that it's one of the first things I looked for when I went to Myeongdong.

Now, for the second time, Nature Republic has trapped me (in a good way) with another product called the Honey and Herb Sleeping Pack. I got the sample while I was shopping in Myeongdong last December and I just decided to test it out these past 2 weeks.

NYX Triple Shadows for Sexy Babe's Eyes Only: Review

This post is actually just going to be a simple swatch post. Today, I'm going to be swatching a trio shadow from the brand called NYX. This is actually a gift that was given to me by my friend, Lyle. (Thank you!) The thing is, I kept this in my drawer and it got pushed at the very back part of the compartment so I failed to use it for a long period of time. I doubt this product is still in the market but I thought of still pushing through with the swatch because I know there are still a few online shops that carry this type of trio eyeshadow from NYX.

K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Eyeliner (Liquid and Pencil): Review

Hi guys! Today, I'm pretty excited with the products I'm highlighting in this post. This product isn't actually something new to me but for some reason, I forgot to take nice shots of this particular product when I first got it for myself.

You may have seen this product in so many beauty blogs and I'm sure a lot of beauty vloggers have featured it too. If you're a fan of Asian makeup,  I'm sure you've heard of this product at least once. I'm talking about this Japanese brand eyeliner called K-Palette.

Clairol Herbal Esences Totally Twisted Shampoo and Conditioner: Review

Today's review is actually about a product that you may have already seen in my blog before. This was included in my "Permed Hair Necessities" post. I was actually contemplating on whether I should do a separate post on this or not, forseeing that I won't be able to say much about the product anyway. Given the situation that I'm pressed for time today, I figured it's the best time to talk about this awesome product.

Travel Seoul: Olleh KT Wifi Prepaid Card (How-to)

Let us all take a moment to take in the fact that 2 months of 2015 have already passed. So fast, right? I know! I know! I have the same thoughts! I can't believe January and February flew by just like that. However, reality is here and we can do nothing but embrace the month of March, which just arrived.

On one of my travel posts, I mentioned that one of the first things we did when we arrived in South Korea was getting our T-money loaded (for easy commute on trains, buses, taxi, etc.) and grabbing an Olleh Wifi prepaid card. Both of these things can be done in GS25, which is a convenience store that we saw nearby the bus station.

The thing about Korea is that there are a lot of Olleh wifi networks all over Seoul. There are networks in most tourists spots and subway stations. The only down side is that most of it are password protected so if you don't have the pin, you won't be able to access them. This is frustrating especially to those who want to update their social media real time or maybe if you just didn't bother to get roaming since messenger apps are used by everyone nowadays. (Raise your hand if you can relate.)

One cheap solution to this is getting the Olleh KT Wifi prepaid card. At first, I didn't know if I should make a separate post about this but since one of my readers, Claudine, wanted to know about it, I thought making one would be worth it.
