Black Friday: FOTD + IKEA

^^  A little FOTD ^^
Make-up: MAC Eyeshadow (Pollen), Physicians Formula "Lash Boosting Liner" (Deep Brown), Revlon "Grow Luscious Mascara" (Black Shimmer), and MAC "Dazzleglass" (Sugar Rimmed). 

This will just be a random little blog post of my IKEA exploration on the infamous "Black Friday" I bought a few pieces for my room, but most of all; I was testing out my new camera I got on Black Friday. 
Introducing.... The Sony Cyber-shot H70! <3 
So far, I am really liking this camera because the quality is very nice! I highly recommend this point-and-shoot camera! So from now on; the pictures on this blog will be now shot with this camera, and hopefully I'll figure out how to take a picture of my eye to show you some mascara, eyeliner, or circle lens shot. 
Any tips on shooting pictures of your eye?
Here are some of my favorite pictures from IKEA:


I hope everyone had an amazing break and an amazing time around their family! ^_^

Review: Laneige "Power Essential Skin Refiner Light_EX"

Finally. I have time to do this post! See? I'm almost done with the toner! I feel so accomplished! This is my very first Laneige product, and I am in love! I really want to try more of their products; but first I need to finish what I have (or so I hope). Toner is something I always use and is part of my daily skincare routine so finding a good toner is very important to me. This is definitely one of my favorites and I hope I can repurchase this soon! Anyways, let's get onto the review in detail:

Rating: 9.5 out of 10
Skin Type: All skin types; normal to oily.
Me: Toners are definitely essential in my skincare routine and it really helps to refine my pores and make sure that everything is off my face. This is my very first Laneige product, and I really really love it! From using this product, I feel like my skin has been better overall. This has kept my acne in check and it really cleans my skin with an extra step. There has been a pretty good improvement in my skin ever since I've used this product.
How to: Apply this to a cotton pad and wipe this all over your face after your normal skincare routine day and night. OR Apply this to thin sheets of cotton pad and use this as a moisture refining mask. 
Price: $25-40 It's a really big range, but it depends on where you get it and all the specials going on. I personally don't remember how much I bought it for, but I think it was in the $25 range? 
Quality: I really love this product; worth the money and it helps your skin. I think it does help to improve my skin texture and help refine my pores a little. 
Smell: I don't know how to describe the smell, but I love it! It's fresh, but it doesn't smell strong at all! It smells 'natural', like a product that you know doesn't have chemicals that are harmful to your skin. I really love the smell, so light and refreshing.
Texture: It has a water consistency that soaks into your skin and refreshes it immediately!
Packaging: It comes in a tall glass bottle with a screw cap top and has a rubber stopper. It may seem inconvenient and bulky, but the bottle is very slim and not that heavy! The screw cap top is amazingly easy to screw off, just a light twist will take the cap off and it does not leak at all. I love the rubber stopper inside because it controls the amount of product you want. The packaging makes this product look so pretty to have ^_^
Amount: 160 ml. / 5.4 fl. oz.
Repurchase: Yes definitely!!
