Shara Shara Snail Source Repair Ampoule *sponsored product*

Shara Shara Snail Source Repair Ampoule Review

Hi lovelies! Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas (or holiday)! I definitely ate too much...haha. 

Today I'm bringing you a skincare product review from Korean brand Shara Shara. I don't know much about them, but they look like a cute brand ^_^

I have their Snail Source Repai Ampoule to show you today - it's a serum or essence like product, containing snail filtrate. Snail filtrate in skincare supposedly helps fight wrinkles, soothes and repairs irritated and reddened skin, and hydrates dull or dry skin. You might remember that a while back I reviewed some Mizon snail filtrate products, which I really liked. So after having positive experiences with snail filtrate products so far, how did this one measure up?

Etude House Princess Etoinette Season 2 Crystal Shine Lips Lipstick Review *sponsored products*

Etude House Princess Etoinette 2013 Cyrstal Shine Lipsticks Review

Hey pretties! I'm back with another Etude House review, and I'm excited to share with you my review on the Crystal Shine Lips Lipsticks from Etude's latest limited Winter 2013 Collection - Princess Etoinette Season 2

This year's Etoinette Collection only contained 3 lipsticks versus the 8 shades from last year, but the colours are just gorgeous, and seem more vivid compared to the more softer colours of last season.

These three lipsticks were generously provided to me by Beautynet Korea, who are usually amongst the first to stock Etude's latest collections (and at reasonable prices too), so if you're an Etude-a-holic like me you better just bookmark their website, cos you'll be checking them out often ^_^

Anyway, prepare for a somewhat picture heavy post ahead! But can you blame me? Just look at how cute and pretty these lipsticks are!

Let's Wonderland Honey Moisturizing Lotion and Honey Moisturizing Cream Review

Hi lovely people! Today I have a new, kawaii skincare brand to introduce to you! It's a Taiwanese brand that I found on Sasa, and I was so enamoured by the [perceived?] reference to Alice in Wonderland, that I caved and bought two products from the Honey range to try. 


Actually, at the time I purchased it I almost felt immediate regret as I was really loving my Mizon Snail Repair products at the time. However after using this new skincare I can happily say I am enjoying these products very much. I'm still using the Mizon Snail Repair Cream btw - the light texture slots in perfectly between these two new Let's Wonderland products ^_^

Etude House x Minnie Collaboration - Minnie Touch Highlighter and Minnie Touch Blusher Review

Etude House Minnie Touch Highlighter and Minnie Touch Blusher Review

Hello, hello. I'm back with my next Etude House review! This time it's on the Touch Highlighter and Touch Blusher, from Etude's recent collaboration with Minnie Mouse. 

Let's jump right into the review?

Etude House Minnie Kissing Lips Lipstick Review - Bubble Pink and Minnie Red

Hi loves! 

Etude House released a collaboration collection with Disney back in October, and I know a lot of you fell in love with it, because it featured the ever cute and stylish, Minnie Mouse! 


etude house minnie kissing lips lipstick review

Today I've got the two Kissing Lips lipsticks from the collection to review for you. I actually wanted to get the review up earlier, but a few weeks back I had a bit of a clumsy moment and deleted a few hundred new photos off my camera, so it took me a while to re-shoot them T_T

Anywho, I couldn't resist, and bought the two lipsticks as I just couldn't choose between either. Minnie Red is a glossy cherry red shade, and Bubble Pink is a milky pink shade (as described by Etude).

MyNewSkin Multipurpose Balm Review - Lemon Myrtle and Lavendar *sponsored product*

Okay, so I have a bit of an obsession with finding skincare to nourish my dry skin...

And lately I've been really interested in skincare which uses natural or organic ingredients too. So when I was offered the opportunity to trial some some MyNewSkin Multi-purpose face and body balms, I was intrigued! 



Not only is MyNewSkin an Australian brand (located and operated in Queensland), but their balms are made from completely natural and chemical free ingredients. The balms are made from plant oils and herb extracts - which are processed within 3 hours of being freshly picked. Is that super fresh or what?

Sheerskin Super Hydra Soothing Cream *sponsored product*


Cosmetic Love have been adding some exciting brands to their website lately, and one of the lesser known ones is a skincare brand called Sheer Skin. 

I was sent the Super Hydra Soothing cream to review - perfect for my dry skin type. 

The packaging is very clean and simple, with just a simple splash of colour. The moisturising cream is packaged in a thick glass tub, and has a plastic screw top lid.

Etude House Princess Etoinette Winter 2013 Collection Preview

etude house princess etoinette 2013 winter collection preview
Image Source

Well hello lovelies! I'm in a bit of a tizz right now as I've just seen Etude House's newest release - it kind of came out of nowhere, as you know we had the highly hyped Minnie x Etude Collaboration released just 2 months ago! 

I was wondering how Etude would have the time to prepare a Christmas Collection, but well here it is! And yes, you would recognise that this collection is not quite new...instead it's a rehaul and revamp of last year's Winter/Christmas collection concept - it's Princess Etoinette Part 2, haha. 

They've gone with white rather than pink packaging this year. At first glance it seems as there are less items compared to last year's (ie, only 3 lipsticks compared to last year's 8!), however Etude has introduced some new and more pricier items, such as a hair mist, two  (10 shade) eyeshadow palettes, and an Eau De Toilette to distract us. 

Super long post ahead...

Etude House Nymph Aura Line Balm Review *sponsored product*

Hello hello! Today I'm reviewing the Etude House Nymph Aura Line Balm - kindly provided by Beautynetkorea for review. The Line Balm is a solid foundation packaged in a compact, and is applied with a sponge puff - though the foundation is technically solid, it's actually quite soft and melts on contact, so it adheres to the skin very well, giving a natural finish. 

It's a must-have if like me, you adore the glossy, radiant finish all the Kpop idols and actresses are rocking at the moment.

Etude House Rosy Tint Lips Review - #4 Sweet Poison *sponsored product*

Hi Loves, how are you? 

Etude House Rosy Tint Lips #4 Sweet Poison

Today I'm going to be talking about one of the lip tints from Etude House's recent Fall collection, And Rose. It was a very romantic and more grown up collection from Etude, and part of the collection featured some gorgeous looking matte lip tints. 

Beautynetkorea has kindly provided me one of these Rosy Tint Lips to review, in shade #4 Sweet Poison. I just love that name! It's not very 'Etude House', being a little more vampy and mysterious, but I like that. 

Now, although these are marketed as lip tints, I'd say they're more creamier and more pigmented than tints - more like matte finish lip lacquers in my opinion.

Models Prefer Sweet Shadows Tin Swatches and Review

Models Prefer Sweet Shadows Tin swatches and review

Hi Lovelies

Today I've got swatches and a review of the Models Prefer holiday set - Sweet Shadows. 

You may see that it bears an uncanny resemblance to Too Faced palettes - no coincidence, I'm sure. However as a kawaii-holic, I couldn't turn down this palette - anything that combines dessert with makeup, I need to have. I had to go to 3 different Priceline stores just to track it down! 

It's an affordable $15. But did you know that Priceline's having a 40% off all cosmetics sale this Tuesday and Wednesday?! That makes this tin a measly $9! I wish I had waited, lol.

Etude House Minnie Glitter Nail Polishes and Nail Glitter Review *sponsored products*

Etude House Minnie Collection Glitter Nails

Hi Loves! I've been busy, busy this past week, so this post is overdue >_< 

I've been teasing you (if you follow me on Instagram) with sneak peeks of posts I've been working on, after I received some seriously kawaii items from my new sponsor, Beautynetkorea. Y'all might be more familiar with them as they also operate under f2plus1 on ebay. Anyway, they have a brand new site of their own, so check it out here!

The first review is on some of the nail polishes and nail glitters from Etude House's latest, sweetest, cutest, limited edition collection - a collaboration with Minnie Mouse (see the collection here, if you haven't yet).

Benefit Holiday Set, Groovy Kind-a Love Swatches and Review *pic heavy*

Hi gorgeous gals! I've got a rather long and pic-heavy post for you today. 

I recently splurged and treated myself to one of Benefit's Holiday Sets, as I had a gift voucher I wanted to use, and because I've wanted to try the highly raved about Benefit cosmetics for ages now. 

Even with a gift voucher it wasn't easy to hand over my cash, as Benefit is not exactly cheap (especially given the price hike here in Australia). I went for the set which I thought had the most amount of products I would be happy to use. The Groovy kind-a love set seemed to be the most worthwhile 'investment' to me, though Little Love Potions came a close second.

Here's what the set looks like - not exactly the sort of packaging I like, but it's pretty retro and playful. 

Benefit holiday set groovy kind a love

It retails at Myers at $69, nearly double the American price T_T  

However, it's a great opportunity to try a decent range of products, without paying the full price. I mean, the full size Benetint costs $55 on it's own! I'd rather pay for sample sizes and be able to try more products, rather than buy one full size product at a time~

Burts Bees Lip Colour Range (Lip gloss, lip shine, and lip shimmer) Review *sponsored products*

Burt's Bees is a brand you need to check out if you like beauty products made from natural ingredients - especially if you also happen to be a bit of a lip product junkie! Earlier this year they launched a whole new range of lip glosses, lip shines, and natural balms - and guess what? It's all 100% natural. 

Burt's Bees lip gloss, lip shine, and lip shimmer review

Whether you like brilliant shine, soft glosses, or pigmented colour, you'll be able to find something to like in the new range. I know I did.

Sweet As Sugar Macaron Makeup Look (Featuring EOS Lace Brown lenses)


Hi Lovelies! Hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween :)

A little while back Pinky Paradise sent me a pair of super cute lenses to try. I wanted to do something other than a straight up circle lens review, so I decided to play around and create a makeup look I normally wouldn't wear, to show off these lenses.  

So I was inspired to make a macaron themed makeup look!

eos lace brown circle lens review

Although I do love colours, I always tend to play it safe with soft and neutral colours on myself. So jumping from brown eyeshadow to green eyeshadow was...interesting ^_^

Perth Royal Show 2013 - October Photo Diary

Hi all! It's nearly the end of another month already - I seriously don't know where the time goes. 

It's time for another photo diary post, and the highlight of my month was probably going to the Perth Royal Show. It's an annual event, but this year was the first time I've gone, in about 8 or 9 years! 

My parents used to take my brother and I nearly every year when we were little <3

This year I took my little sister along - I felt somewhat guilty as I've been to the Royal Show so many times as a child, but my poor sis has only been once or twice, and mostly too little to remember much at the time. 

The Royal Show kind of started as a 'Fair and Cattle' Show in the 1800's - nowadays it's more than just agriculture and cattle (though it's still an integral part of the event) - there's games, rides, trinkets, and lots of displays and shows to check out.

Anyways, it was kind of an expensive day (tickets alone cost a bomb), but we had heaps of fun checking out all the cute little baby animals, and going on some of the rides. 


We went on the second last day of the Show - somehow it wasn't as crowded as expected, which was good as it made walking around much more comfortable. The day started off fine, but it started to get cloudy and rainy later that afternoon, which might've been the reason for the smaller crowds. 

Haha, there was an area for kids to bounce on those ball things, but obviously no one was interested. I kind of wanted to go play on those, but I was wearing a short dress, so not a good idea!

For those not familiar, showbags are probably what most parents are most scared of - they're bags filled with candy and nick-knack toys, and every kid that goes to the show will probably demand at least 5 showbags to bring home, lol. It can get *expensive*

Sanctuary Spa Secret Facial Oil Review

I've just finished up my first bottle of the Sanctuary Spa facial oil, so I thought it was about time I finally reviewed it. You would've seen it featured on my Skincare Routine post a while back too. 

This was the first Sanctuary Spa product I tried (I'm a definite convert now, especially after falling in love with their Hot Cloth Polishing Cleanser), and it's one of the most essential items in my skincare regime.

What A Girl Wants - October/November Wishlist

Hi loves - welcome to my October/November Wishlist! 

This month I'm finding myself lusting after a lot of different things, so I thought I'd do a wishlist so I can keep track. I'm definitely hoping to get at least one of the things featured on this list by the end of the month! But I'd be over the moon if I could get everything (fat chance, but a gal can dream!)

First up is one of Benefit's new limited edition Holiday Sets. The only Benefit I've tried is the They're Real mascara (Benefit's sooo expensive here), but the holiday sets are reasonably priced, so I'm definitely hoping to get one. I'm currently torn between the Groovy kind-a love set, and the Little love potions set, but I've settled on Groovy, which has more products I'm interested in.

It's retailing at a quite reasonable AUD69 (with a retail value of $110).

Etude House x Disney XOXO Minnie Collection Released!

Can you think of a sweeter collaboration than between Etude House and Disney? Etude's latest limited edition collection is none other than a collaboration with the ever stylish, Minnie Mouse! I've a soft spot for Disney (I never really grew up, after all!), so I'm definitely indulging in this collection, after skipping the last few Etude releases. 

Take a look at the latest offerings! The packaging features a lot of white with black polka dots, the obligatory girlish pinks, and even a splash of red - for Minnie's cute red bow, no doubt?

Karadium CC Cream Review *sponsored product*

Hi beauties, hope you're all fab this evening!

Cosmetic Love has kindly sent me a CC Cream to review for you guys, from a brand they will soon be stocking on their website, called Karadium. 

CC Cream has been bandied about as 'white lie' makeup for it's no makeup, makeup look and finish. Normally a white cream in formula, they contain teeny capsules inside which burst upon contact, which releases colour correcting properties that help even and adjust to skin tone. 

The Karadium CC Cream is packaged in deceptively plain and simple black and white, but definitely outperformed my expectations.

Sanctuary Spa Polishing Hot Cloth Cleanser Review

Hi lovelies! Today you're getting a review on a cleanser that I am absolutely loving at the moment! You would've seen this featured in my Skincare Routine post, but I'll be able to give you more in depth info on it today. 

It's from a brand I'm obsessed with at the moment, called Sanctuary Spa, and if the name sounds familiar to you, it's because it's an actual spa in the UK, and supposedly very popular too. I guess the treatments at the spa were so popular, they decided to start selling their range, so those of us who can't have a fancy-schmancy spa treatment can treat ourselves in the comfort of our own homes ^_^

I started off with trying the Facial Oil as a replacement for my rosehip oil, and was so impressed I kept going back to try other Sanctuary Spa products. And now, I somehow seemed to have amassed my own little mini spa in my bathroom. Anyways, my fave Sanctuary Spa product so far has to be the Polishing Hot Cloth Cleanser.

September's Happenings & Haul Post

Hello! Oh my gosh, it's October already?! Time really does fly~

Today's post is a combined post of photo diary and haul - since I didn't manage to take very many interesting photos for a diary post, and also didn't haul too many things throughout September. So you get two for the price of one, lol.

If you ask me how my September went, I'd say 'really fast!' and 'there was a lot of cake...'

I really did eat a lot of cake because me, my brother, and sister are all September babies. And then there's also a cousin and an uncle who also have birthdays in September...

My Evening Skincare Routine - Part Two of Two

And I'm back with the second part of my skincare routine (click here if you haven't seen part one yet). 


We're kind of getting into the more exciting stuff, with a few products that I hope you'll enjoy reading about~

My Evening Skincare Routine - Part One of Two

Hi babes, how are we all? Today I'm just going to blab about my current evening skincare routine ^_^

I like looking at others bloggers' routines, and sometimes I even come away with a list of new skincare I want to try, so I hope this is of interest to you in the same way. 

I think my skincare routine is relatively simple compared to some other beauty bloggers, but now that I've piled all the products together it suddenly looks quite complex! It's not, I promise, as many of these items I don't use all at once, or even everyday. Some I use weekly, some bi-weekly, and some hardly. 


Join my Hello Spring! Giveaway~

Hi lovelies! Although my 2 year Blogversary is coming up next month, I couldn't wait that long to hold my next giveaway! So today I'm launching my Hello Spring! Giveaway for you gals~

Yes, I know it's only Spring for those of us in the Southern hemisphere (or it should be, but all Perth is getting is this dreary gray weather!), but what else can I call this prize pack full of floral-y, pinky, cutie goodness? 

You can see I went for a certain theme - not only are the items pink (haha, I even colour coordinated the samples), but they all come together to create a fresh and naturally pretty make-up look, which is perfect for this Spring season. 



I hope you'll all join in the fun! It's open internationally~

La Roche-Posay Sensi White Foaming Cream Review

La Roche-Posay has been a brand that's intrigued me, but which failed to make it's way into the clutch of my skincare-loving-hands, due to it's rather hefty price tag. They're a French brand, who specialises in skincare for sensitive skin, and they're quite well recommended by dermatologists. So when Priceline had a massive 40% off skincare sale a while back, the Sensi White Foaming Cream was tossed into my shopping basket without any hesitation (along with a crap-load of other stuff, as seen here). 

I know that it's the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo that seems to be the star item of the brand, but as I don't have oily and problematic skin (I have dry-normal, and occasionally problematic skin), I decided to try something else. And the something else that caught my attention was the Foaming Cream.

Bright Pink Lipstick Day

Hi babes! I'm sorry about my tardiness in replying to your comments, and commenting on your blogs this past week! I'll be playing catch up over the next few days. 

But that's not the point of today's post - I just found out that this Friday is Bright Pink Lipstick Day! Yeah, I must've been living under a rock or something to only find out about it now, lol. 

Anyway, I'll be popping on a bright pink lippie this Friday the 20th, to show my support for raising awareness of breast and ovarian cancer. 

Wearing Nature Republic's Provence Longlasting lipstick in PK206

Will you be joining me?  

Don't forget to show your support by sharing a pic of you with your bright pink lippie on social media with the hashtags #brightpinklipstickday & #pinkhopeaus & #revlon

You can also show your support by donating, fundraising, or buying the limited edition Revlon Pink Hope lippie (at Priceline, Target or selected pharmacies). Visit the official Pink Hope website here for more info. 

I don't know yet which pink lippie I'll be wearing this Friday - I'm going to have to go rifle through my lipstick collection now ^_^

I hope you gals will join me too, even those of you outside of Australia!

Speak to you soon, see ya!

Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream Review

Hi girls, I'm back again! Yesterday I uploaded my review on the Snail Gel Cream from Mizon, and tonight I want to continue that with my thoughts on the All in One Repair Cream, which I've been using in conjunction with the gel (since they're from the same range, and recommended to be used together for best results). 

I mentioned in yesterday's post that I found the gel to work reasonably well on diminishing any small blemishes that want to pop up, but that I didn't necessarily find it to live up to all the hype from many other bloggers' reviews. That's how I felt about the gel when used on it's own - but since I've been using this as an accompaniment to the Repair Cream for the last 2.5 months, I have to say the results turned out a lot better. 

My skin's smoother, clearer, and I noticed a definite drop in the amount of blemishes I've been getting. I can hardly recall any major blemishes in the last two-ish months (minus the time my skin got bumpy from using the Olay Cleansing System).

Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream Review

Hi gorgeous girls! Today's review is an interesting one, because it's on one of the two snail secretion (read snail slime) moisturisers I'm currently using~

Snail secretion in skincare was quite the rage in Korea a year or two ago, so I am a bit late to the bandwagon, but after reading a whole heap of rave reviews I decided I just had to try this - even though the thought of it made me a bit squeamish! It's because the snail secretion supposedly has a whole heap of recovery/regeneration powers, that I decided I was willing to slather such stuff all over my face. A lot of reviews also claimed it was excellent for acne too, so that was another reason I wanted to try this.

Note that snails are not killed or harmed in order to harvest their slimy secretion!

August's Beauty and Fashion Hauling

Hello Lovelies! Welcome to August's Haul Post :)

August was a pretty fab month for me as there were quite a lot of good sales going on - particularly at Priceline (aka a money sucking vortex, lol). I replenished some of my fave skincare items, picked up a few new products and brands I've wanted to try, and my ever growing lipstick collection has expanded yet again...

Shall we begin?

Olay Regenrist Advanced Cleansing System Review

Hi lovelies, I think a few of you have been waiting for the review of this Olay cleansing brush, so here it is! The Olay Regenerist Advanced Cleansing System is a battery operated cleansing brush, not un-similar to the well-loved Clarisonic Mia. 

It's a much cheaper version of course, retailing here in Australia for about $29.95, while the Clarisonic is about $200! Now, I don't have the Clarisonic, so this review won't be a comparison post, but this may be of interest to you if you're interested in seeing whether electronic face brushes work better than cleansing with bare hands.

Weekly Photo Diary


Long term readers might remember that I used to do 'random filler' posts, where I blogged pictures from my phone/camera about interesting things I saw/did/ate. Well, I just realised the last time I did such a post was OCTOBER 2012!!!

I know some of you really enjoyed them, so I'm sorry I haven't kept up with it! I've been kind of filling the void of not doing these posts by posting my pics on tumblr, and more recently on instagram, instead. But I've decided to try and do a weekly (or fortnightly) photo diary blog post here too. Some weeks I honestly don't do much other than go to work and then spending my free time bumming around at home - maybe doing a photo diary will motivate me to do more interesting stuff!

Most, if not all, of these pics are off my phone, so the quality's not the best sometimes. But I hope it's a fun post anyway ^_^

Changes! Field of Tulips is now Kawaii Beauty Corner (new domain & facelift)

Hi girls - just wanted to announce that my blog has been going under a few changes! 

I'm super excited to finally have my own blog domain - its something I've been contemplating for months and months. I've kind of struggled with taking this step, because I made the big decision to not stick with my current blog title, Field of Tulips. 

Field of Tulips has been the identity of my blog for nearly 2 years now, and I'm very attached to it. However I always thought it never gelled with what I blog about - which is kawaii makeup! It actually took me months to even come up with a new name, but I'm confident it's the right one. 

You may have already seen me using this name on my other social media, such as instagram and tumblr, so here it is. 

Field of Tulips is now changing to Kawaii Beauty Corner

So now, instead of finding my blog under 'F' for Field, now I'll be a little further down on your blog list under 'K' for Kawaii~ 

And I've had to say goodbye to my very beloved tulips themed blog banner, with a new facelift to suit my new domain name. It's very different to the old theme, isn't it? I wanted the banner to look like a chocolate box lid, and I think it kinda does look like it could be the packaging for mint chocolates, so I'm quite happy! I also decided to veer away from the pink because I wanted a more 'grown-up' kawaii theme. But there's still a lot of girlie points, especially with the polka dot pattern~ 

I'm still fiddling around with the layout a bit, but nothing more major should be changing - if anything with the new layout looks weird coming up on your monitor, do let me know! 

Thank you guys so much for following me, reading my posts, and supporting me on my blogging journey. I hope this new facelift will take my blog further and further, and I'll do my best to keep blogging about kawaii makeup and other kawaii things! 

xoxo

The 'What's In My Handbag' Tag


Hi loves! I'm happy the weekend is here now :)

Today's post I'm going to do the 'what's in my handbag' tag - I've wanted to do one for a while, but truthfully the stuff I carry around is very ordinary and not very interesting at all! 

The above pic is the handbag I've been lugging around for the past week or two - it's a cream shoulder bag from one of my fave stores Forever New - I think half my handbag collection is from there, since they have such pretty handbags!

Arbonne's RE9 Advanced Extra Moisture Restorative Day Creme *sponsored product post*


Back with another Arbonne review for you girls - but this time it's a skincare item rather than a makeup item like last time (lipstick, blusher, and lip polish review here). 

The Extra Moisture Restoratative Day Creme is especially formulated for drier and dehydrated skin types, and is part of a botanically based skincare range.

It's described as a "ultra-hydrating créme" and "features high concentrations of moisture enhancing ingredients that support collagen, and protect and restore skin's youthful appearance."

I've heard that collagen is important for maintaining skin elasticity and silkiness, so that's one of the reasons I was particularly interested in trying this out~

Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation Review

Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation

Hi lovelies! Hope you're all enjoying your week so far~

Today's review is on the Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation, which I'd been fortunate enough to receive to trial. Revlon quotes this foundation as "so light, it melts right in, working in harmony with your skin’s unique tone and texture for an even, fresh finish," as well as "vitamin and antioxidant-packed to pump up your natural glow and a nearly naked look that’s absolutely perfect.

Natural glow and a perfect, nearly naked skin look? Yes please!

Nature Republic Steam Cream Review (Normal/Dry Skin)


Hi lovelies! Today I want to talk a little about the Moist Stream Cream by Nature Republic. I picked this up during a 20% off sale from Cosmetic Love a while back - I'm always on the lookout for something to hydrate my dry and sometimes dehydrated skin.

Anyway Steam Cream is a bit of a hit in the UK, so when I saw this slightly more affordable version by Nature Republic I just had to try it! There are 3 varieties, but the one I picked is the Moist Steam Cream, which is for normal to dry skin types.

Return of the big haul - July's beauty and fashion buys!


Hi beauties! Can you believe it's the end of another month already? And as per tradition, here is my collective beauty and clothing haul for the month of July. Oh my gosh, it's kind of a big one >_< 

Firstly, this mouse-like thing is a face cleansing puff from The Face Shop. It's super soft and squishy, and it really makes my cleansers foam up a lot when I use it. It supposedly lightly exfoliates the skin, but after using this a few weeks I really can't say whether it does anything or not!
