Packing for a holiday...

Hi lovelies! Sorry for not being very active lately - my internet's been very on/off these past days, plus I'm amidst some frantic packing, as I'm getting ready for a two week holiday ^.^ 

I will be in KL, hopefully doing nothing but eating and shopping, lol. I'm not much looking forward to the hot and humid weather, but I am very excited to check out stores and brands that aren't available here in Perth. 

For example Sephora - I predict I will be doing a lot of damage to my bank account there! I will be checking out TooFaced, Soap & Glory, NYX, Urban Decay, etc etc, which are brands not easily or not at all accessible back home :P

Then there's also Sasa, Watsons, Forever 21, and H&M, which I'm dying to check out too...

Ooh, and I can't forget Etude House! Very excited overall. 

Anywho, I'm having the hardest time deciding what *ahem* necessities to take...

Even though I am a beauty blogger and beauty addict, I had no idea my toiletries bag would actually turn out to be three bags? Oh boy. 

Looks like I need to go back and do some culling...

Blog-wise, I had planned to schedule some posts during my absence - unfortunately due to internet problems and general procrastination on my part (in favour of looking up places to go, eat, and shop) I haven't got enough materials to publish T.T

I don't know if I'll be able to update my blog during KL, but I will be trying to update my Instagram at @kawaiibeautycorner as much as I can (might be tricky as I'm staying with relatives, so I don't know what the wi-fi situation is >.< )

But yes, I hope you understand I may not be very active for a few weeks, but when I get back I'll have plenty of things to blog and review about <3

Chat to you later 

xoxo Tulip

Pretty in Pink - A Little Yesstyle Beauty Haul

Hi Lovelies! 

Just wanted to show you a little haul I recently ordered off Yesstyle ^^

If you take a close look, you may notice a certain theme? Well, yes most of the items are Etude House, but there's something else...

Do you know? Yup, all but one item is eye brows related! 

I am hating my brows so much at the moment - or rather the better word is struggling? I'm pretty bad at doing my brows, which is annoying because I need my brows to look great since I'm wearing minimal makeup looks lately. 

Out of the 7 days I do my brows, I'm probably only satisfied 3 out of 7 times. For some reason, every morning I do my brows, they tend to turn out differently shaped to the day/days before. It's kind of strange and kind of tragic, and I have no idea why it happens!

Ugh, but anyway, I figured maybe if I bought some brow related tools, it might help? 

I've seen this Etude House brow stencil floating around, and I finally decided to buy it since it's affordable, and since I'm not getting anywhere freestyling my brows :P

There are 3 different stencils in the kit - a natural curved, yet straight brow, a defined arched brow, and a very straight brow.

Although I like the very straight brow, I think the first stencil will suit my facial features the best. The stencil is made of floppy rubbery material, which is washable. You just line it up on your brow and fill in the shape with pencil or powder. 

Next up is the Etude House Flamingo Eyebrow Shaver. It is very cute how they made it look like a flamingo! I used to pluck, but not in recent years, as I found it discourages hair from growing back. Shaving is painless and quick, though you need to groom more often. 

The shaver looks kind of menacing now, lol. 

I've also heard that this type of shaver is good for creating a straighter eyebrow, which is my ultimate goal. I will see how the stencils go, and if it looks good, I may end up using the razor to straighten out my eyebrow arch 0.o

Real Like Eyebrow Pencil in brown was my next purchase. Truthfully I only bought it to get me over the limit for free shipping. 

I use Etude's brow pencil, but it might be good to try something new. This is slightly more expensive than the Etude pencil, and it has decent reviews on Yesstyle, so hopefully I'll like this.  

And lastly, for the non-brow related purchase - a packet of oil blotting paper~

I'm off to KL next week, so I expect I'll be needing this! 

I lost my other blotting papers, so I picked the Etude one as a replacement, because it's pink and cute :P 

So there we have it - my small, but pink and cute Yesstyle haul ^^

Thanks for reading. Are you good at doing your brows, lovelies? 

xoxo Tulip

Kastella Beauty Company - Introduction & Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar Review

Hi Lovelies

Today I want to introduce you to a new Korean beauty online store - this one is only for my US readership unfortunately as it is a US based store. But for those of you outside the US I hope you'll check this post out anyway as I have a Tony Moly lip gloss to review, that may be of interest to you ^^

Kastella Beauty Company is a fairly new store - they are Los Angeles based, and boast a nice range of popular Korean beauty brands that we all know and love, such as Tony Moly, Holika Holika, and Mizon.

First Review of the Year! Innisfree Green Tea Seed Cream

Innisfree is a brand that has been rocketing up my list of favourite brands throughout the year, and is now right up there with Etude House. They may not have the prettiest or cutest packaging, but the quality of their products, combined with their eco-friendly packaging, and green tea infused products has really caught my attention. 

Innisfree Green Tea Seed Cream Review

My newest Innisfree purchase was the quite raved about Green Tea Seed Cream - I wanted something light yet very hydrating for my dry-normal skin, for when I travel to KL later this month, and this cream had been on my wishlist for some time. 

I thought the light looking texture looked cooling enough for the hot and humid weather, and reviews claimed it was hydrating enough for Summer too. I was convinced to give it a go~

My 2015 Resolutions

It's the start of a new year, can you believe it? Time seems to fly faster and faster nowadays. I'm a little nervous but excited for the new year ahead - I feel like this could be the year that changes my life...

I wasn't going to do new year's resolutions - simply because I never keep them, which makes me feel guilty! But this year I tried to make resolutions which are a mix of very achievable, and somewhat achievable, lol. 

In no particular order, here are my 2015 Resolutions~

Hahhh, I wonder how many of these resolutions I can achieve...some of them might be beyond me, lol. 

But anyway, 2015 bring it on!

Do you make resolutions every new year? And do you ever fulfil them? 

xoxo Tulip
