Haul: Chinatown!

These are the original bags.
So recently I went to Chinatown! Okie... It was actually a while back, but I didn't have time to post about the things that I got, so here it is now! Better late than never right? I actually got a whole bunch of stuff, and these are just pics of the stuff, but no review yet until I get to try them out! I haven't really touched any of these things yet either! Here's the haul of just my stuff, I'm not gonna really talk about my mom's stuff! ^_^*Just my stuff*
So for myself, I got 1 MISSHA Watery B.B. Cream (SPF 27/PA ++), 2 SHISEIDO Ma Cherie hair-mist (one for straight hair, the other for curls), 1 MISSHA Special Set, 2 KIREI-ME sponges, and 10 MYBEAUTYDIARY masks!! Let's get to the details, shall we?

MISSHA M Watery B.B. Cream SPF 27 / PA++
50 ml.
"Containing a generous amount of moisture, M Watery B.B Cream helps create glowing skin with its natural coverage. It's moisturizing and antioxidant ingredients protect your skin and make it comfortable with moisturizing and cool afterfeel."
  • This M Watery BB Cream helps create glowing skin by providing moist luster.
  • Moisturizing complex, patent ingredient, provides moisture to your skin.
  • Containing Nelumbium Speciosum Flower Extract, astaxanthin and jewelry ingredients such as diamond powder and platinum, it protects the skin.
Phew! That's what it claims, and the lady said that it's really light on the skin, and it's just basically a moisturizer. I have used this a couple times since I purchased it, and it actually has no color, moisturizing but not oily, and really really light! I'm liking it so far! Will do a detailed review after I'm sure about this product.

2 SHISEIDO Ma Cherie hair-mist
250 ml.
I got these as complements to test out, one was for straight styles and the other is for holding curls. I totally forgot which one is which *sigh* I'll have to test them out now!

MISSHA M Signature Radiance Two-Way Pact SPF 27 / PA++ [Special Set]
The set came with:
1 Signature Radiance Two-Way Pact No. 23 (11 g.)
1 M Signature Radiance make-up base SPF 15/ PA+ Green (7 ml.)
1 M Signature Radiance foundation SPF 20/ PA+ No. 23 Chic Beige (7 ml.)
"Two-way pact combined covering from two-way cake and light afterfeel from pact."
  • It makes your skin look moisturized and radiant with powder enriched with mineral and botanical collagen while providing abundant moisture and nutrients.
  • Containing micro bead powder, it creates flawless skin with its powerful covering & wearing benefits, leaving soft feeling.
  • Containing Astazanthin and Polylift called as "Super Vitamin", it makes your skin healthy and radiant."
It's too pretty to use! So I haven't tried any of the product yet, but the packaging on the pact is so pretty! It's GOLD! (Well not really, but it's so pretty still!)
*What the powder looks like on the inside*

2 Kirei-Me Magic Painless Hair Removal Sponge
For sure this is super convenient, but I'm still not sure what to think of it yet...


The best part of my haul is the MyBeautyDiary masks!!
I got:
2 Apple Polyphenol
1 Red Wine
2 Strawberry Yogurt
1 Bird Nest
2 Pearl Powder
1 Japanese Cherry Blossom
1 Mixed Berry

I can't wait to use these things! Comment for any reviews you guys want! Thank you!

Video: Skinfood Commercial for BubzBeauty's Contest


That's my entry! Thanks for watching ^_^ Please comment too!
Bubz from Bubzbeauty was having a commercial contest for her subscribers, and she was giving away so many things! Of course to make it a little more interesting than just a giveaway, she did a commercial contest! I wasn't going to do this, but then I realized that I would have time during this spring break to chill, so why not? I actually had tons of fun doing this with all of the support from my friends. I hope I win, but good luck to everyone else that entered the contest!
My friend and I were talking about it for a couple of days and we didn't know what to do. She eventually did a sike on organic mascara, hilarious! This commercial was almost last minute, but I'm glad I made it on time, it took me the whole day to make this video because partly it's my first time and I'm a little OCD...
So I narrowed it down to advertising Skinfood, but I had 3 ideas for the commercial.
1. Pretend to cook something, and put it on my face and then it would be the same thing as Skinfood on my face.
2. Put food on my face (representing the different Skinfood products) and realizing how difficult it was, but Skinfood would be super amazing cause it's the same thing but better for you skin.
3. Uh...random for what I just did on my video! (Hahahahaha)

Nails: Cute Strawberry Nails

After watching Bubzbeauty's "Cute Strawberry Nails" I just had to do these nails! They were super cute, adorable, and perfect for spring. Okay, I admit that my nails are short and stubby, but they actually look like plump strawberries! I tried to recreate this look, and it's actually pretty simple, and I've received a lot of complements about these nails. For this post, I'm just going to do a quick product list and some tips, but the video is so much better, enjoy! Products Used: (Left to Right)
536 Geranium (Essie)
02 Green With Envy (Sally Hansen)
Light Pink (Victoria Secret)
175 Silver Glitter (L.A. Glitter)
708 Top Coat (saQu)
Looking for a perfect red may be hard to find because you want something fresh a fruity. I swatched like 8 different reds, and I found that Geranium was the best one. It's a gorgeous red color, with a little sheen so it looks fresh, looks like strawberries, and it's not overly red with like a little bit of coral.
You want a green that looks fresh and lively. At my Target, there weren't any greens left, and I actually found this out of luck when I was getting something else! It's actually not bad of a color, a cute green-opaque color.
For the strawberry dots, I didn't have white, so I used this really light pink color, and it seems fine. (I'm not sure if you can still get this because I got it over a year ago.) I actually wasn't going to use sparkles, but honestly it's way better if you can because it gives the green a more lively color to it.
Over the colors, I just used the saQu top coat; love this because it's not thick and it gives an awesome shine! (Not sure if you can still get this or not.)
Tips:
Use a toothpick for the strawberry dots, just dip it in the paint bottle and dot it on your nails! Don't do a thick 2 layer on the red because you're going to be layering the green on, and it's going to be easily pushed off.
When your nails are almost dry (dry enough to touch), run it through ice cold water so it dries faster!
Have fun doing these!
