March Beauty Favourites

When was the last time I did a Favourites Post? I don't even recall 0_o

Anywho, here's my March Beauty Favourites! 

L-R: Mizon Snail Repair BB Cream, Indeed Labs Pepta Bright, Maybelline Color Whisper in Who Wore it Red-er, GEO BC102 lenses, Models Prefer Angled Brush

Mizon Snail Blemish Balm

I had run out of my Mizon Snail Cream and needed to buy a new one, so I decided to get the bb cream too. My skin has lightened somewhat over the last two months, so most of my current bbs were looking quite brown on me. 

Mizon's Snail bb had been on my wishlist a while since I love the cream so much, but I always shied away since it seemed too light for my skin. But my current lighter skintone gave me the perfect excuse to get it! 

And omg I do not regret it all. I fell in love with it the first time I used it. It has pretty good coverage, makes my skin look bright and glowy, and has a semi-matte finish. I wore it in my recent posts - BornPretty brown lashes, and Lensvillage I.Fairy circle lenses if you wanna see how it looks on me. I will try to review it properly soon!

Indeed Labs Pepta Bright Serum

Another product I simply have to rave about! If you have dull skin, or old acne scarring you want to fade, you have to try this! I thought my Mizon Snail Cream was slowly but surely working its magic on fading my acne scars, but this serum just took my skin to a new level.

I've been using this about 3.5 weeks now, and my acne scarring is really, really noticeably fading. And my skin is brighter too. I can't wait to review this for you!

Maybelline Color Whisper in Who Wore it Red-er

I've mentioned it previously, but I am obsessed with this lippie at the moment. Love the hydrating, slick formula, and the vivid raspberry pinky-red shade! Wore this in both my BornPretty Couture lashes review, and my Valentines FOTD post if you wanna check it out~

GEO Medical lenses in BC102

My current favourite lenses - I think I'm onto my third pair now. The dark brown shade suits me very well since I naturally have brown almost black eyes. 

I've been cycling through a variety of 'natural' brown lenses over the last 8 months or so, and none of them have measured up to these in terms of how natural they appear. I'm still browsing around to see if there are others even more natural, but I'm content to keep using these ones for now. 

Models Prefer Angled Brush

Picked this up during Priceline's recent 40% off cosmetics sale, because it's just such a bargain. I was worried it might be just a cheap flimsy brush, but I was glad to be proven wrong. 

It's sooo fluffy and soft - not scratchy at all! And it doesn't shed!

I'm using it as my highlighter brush and am loving it. Will definitely check out the rest of Model Prefer's brush range at the next sale! 

And now we've come to the end of the post. These were my carefully picked, March Faves ^^

I'll definitely be working on reviews of the Pepta brightening serum and the Mizon bb cream, so do look forward to that! Thanks for reading lovelies. 

What were your March beauty faves?

March Beauty Haul

Hi loves! It's been forever since I last did a haul post. I know a lot of you love reading haul posts, but I haven't done one in awhile because I bought a new car last November! And I was pretty broke for a while, lol. 

Anyway, since I've been somewhat good about spending since then, I treated myself to two hauls in March - one Korean beauty haul and one Priceline haul, when they had their awesome 40% off Cosmetics Sale! 

Tony Moly Panda's Dream White Magic Cream, Mizon Snail Repair BB Cream, Mizon All In One Snail Repair Cream

I.Fairy Kitten Tears Real Brown Review *sponsored product*

Hi! Today's post is a circle lens review, as one of my fave circle lens sites has sent me a few pairs of lenses to review for you ^^

I've been going for more natural lenses lately since I can't wear too heavy makeup at work, but I miss being able to wear some more adventurous and dolly designs sometimes >.<

So today I'm reviewing some I.Fairy lenses from LensVillage - the I.Fairy brand has really dolly, and kind of in your face designs. But I went with a kawaii design instead, with the Kitten Tears lenses in Real Brown

Bargain Alert - Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream

Hi Cutes! 

Did you know that Mizon now sells their super popular All in One Snail Repair Cream in a little 35ml tube?! And one of my fave Korean beauty stores, Beautynetkorea is now stocking it!

The Mizon Snail Cream is one of my fave skincare creams of all time, and if you read my March Empties post, you'll know I'm onto my third jar now. It was also one of only three skincare products that made it into my 2013 Beauty Favourites post too! 

I get a lot of hits on my Mizon Snail Cream Review, and a lot of you seem to really want to try it - but of course it is a bit pricey at $19, so I thought I should let you know about the new mini size. It's a lot cheaper, and 35ml is still enough for you to be able to form an opinion about whether you like it or not ^^

You can grab the new mini tube for a more wallet friendly price of USD$8.39 (plus free shipping), or if you're a member on their site you can currently get it for a further 10% off! 

Here's the link to get it ^^

BornPrettyStore Unique 'Long Trail' Brown False Lash Review *sponsored product*

Hi Cuties, I'm back with my final BornPrettyStore falsies review ^^

And I've save the best for last! I've been wanting to try brown lashes for awhile, so I was happy to be able to review this set for you. I wasn't sure if brown lashes would look odd on me or not seeing as I have black lashes, but I was super pleased with the results.

Kawaii Tech Stuff: Cute Photo Editing Apps for Instagram

Hi cuties! Today's post is a little different as it's not very beauty related, but I think this will still be of interest to some of you. I am an absolute Instagram-a-holic, and since I'm frequently asked about what apps and filters I use to make my photos ultra kawaii, I thought I'd share some of my favourite smartphone apps.

I can't always take perfect pictures due to the shoddy quality of my phone camera, due to bad lighting, or due to an unsightly background - or for whatever reason! So filters and stamps come in very handy for kawaii-fying my pictures ^^ And it's sooo fun too - it's rare for me to snap a pic and then post it up on Instagram as is. I like to spend a few minutes trying to make the pic even nicer to look at! 

My Instagram process goes a little like this...

Step 1: Take a photo of something cute
Step 2: Purika the heck out of it
Step 3: Slap a pretty filter over the top. Done.

Read on for more detailed tips, tricks, and recommendations~
