Beauty | Tonymoly Dear Me Petite Cotton Pact in Pink Beige Review (Korean Cosmetics)

Happy Valentine's Day! And welcome to yet another Korean cosmetics review! I hope you're not getting sick of me ahahahaha \(@ ̄∇ ̄@)/

Basically, as I've said before, I bought eight Tonymoly make-up items from eBay; an entire face worth of make-up minus brows, which is a shame but the only shade that suits my hair colour is a Dolly Wink eyebrow pencil I've had in my Watch List since foreverrr, and as I was on a Tonymoly binge I decided to buy this Tonymoly Dear Me Petite Cotton Pact in Pink Beige (updated link; original no longer available) instead. Definitely going to buy it soon though ahaha, I'm trying to grow my brows straight in the gal/k-idol style, but they are refusing to grow back. Oh, tangent, whoops!

Available to buy here (updated link; original from f2plus1 shop no longer available)

I'm quite gutted because I didn't take pictures before trying it out, and managed to erase the "Tonymoly" imprint that was on the powder within a few sweeps of my powder brush. Partly wasn't my fault though, as this powder is super loose! Very fine, and manages to get on my clothes more than on my brush or face ahaha (although I prefer that to a cakey powder!).

However, that would be my only complaint with it as it finishes my face perfectly! I tried to swatch it but it didn't even show up ahahaha, it's practically invisible but provides a gorgeous matte finish. I personally think that it's top quality, especially for the price, and the shade Pink Beige suits my skin down to the ground, plus they have a second darker shade called Natural Beige which will surely suit all you beauties who aren't ghostly like me ( 。-_-。) ahahahahaa

End of the day, this is my new go to powder, and I'd recommend it to anyone who loves a fine matte finish! Click here to buy (。・ω・。)ノ♡

Do you love Tonymoly? Have you tried this Pact? Let me know in the comments!

Beauty | Geo Princess Mimi Apple Green (Bambi Series) Circle Lenses Review

I've always wished I had green eyes. Having hazel eyes, I've always had the worst of both worlds in my opinion; instead of a bright emerald green, or a rich chocolate brown, I've got a half and half that looks like a paleish murky brown from a distance, and two rings when up close. Delightful ahahahaha. Nah, I don't really have a problem with my eye colour, I wish they were blue more than anything! Or one green and one blue, but I digress ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

You'll see now how lazy and sick I've been, as I took these pictures when I first wore my pair of Apple Green Geo Princess Mimi lenses from their Bambi series, which was on New Year's Eve! Yikes. Ah well, I bought these bad boys from Pinky Paradise way back when they had their Black Friday sale, and here's my review now! Just two and a half months late, whoopsie.

These are the ones I bought:

And here's how they look on:

Full make-up

I looove them. They're a gorgeous rich green that appears quite dark on my eyes (as you can see in the non-flash pictures), which means that they don't look too out of the ordinary when I'm wearing them out at night, and I've yet to try wearing them out in the day time (I'm currently favouring the Sesame Grey versions from this series ahahaha, I've worn them quite a lot recently - stay tuned for my review on them!).

Fantastic size enlargement, and really comfortable! I've gotten into the habit of dousing my eyes with eye drops as soon as I first put them in to ease my eyes into getting used to the size, but it's rare I need to use them when I'm out or anything, unless I'm wearing them for a long time. If I'm wearing them for a whole day or night out (8ish hours or more), then my eyes will start to feel dry and a bit uncomfortable. But a couple of drops sort that right out 〜(^∇^〜)

Do you like wearing circle lenses? Have you shopped with Pinky Paradise before? Let me know in the comments below!

Beauty | Tonymoly Panda's Dream Brightening Eye Base Review (Korean Cosmetics)

Hello all! Welcome to number 2 out of the 8 reviews of Korean make-up items I bought from eBay! This is the Tonymoly Panda's Dream Brightening Eye Base, and is designed to help lessen the appearance of dark circles, and make your eye area appear bright and healthy.

Available to buy here from beautynetkorea's eBay shop (I've bought from here often, 10/10!).

My Mum always told me to check foundation on the inside of your wrist as it's the palest part of your exposed skin, plus I'd already got swatches all over my hands in this picture ahahaha. As you can see, just one swipe of this Brightening Eye Base shows up quite clearly even on a very pale, shadowless area of my skin!

I'm seriously so impressed with this product, it's my go to base now, despite the fact that I bought a brand new primer just last month for nearly £20! Ugh, I digress ahahaha. I use it for everything, I'm surprised I've got any left and I've only had it a week ahahaha, although I must mention that there's a lot more in the tube than may appear, it goes down quite a way so you needn't fear running out any time soon ヾ(。・ω・。)

It works wonders on my awful deep purple dark eye shadows as its main function as a Brightening Eye Base, and it also works on blemishes, large pores, you name it! It's my new favourite multi-concealer, it does an amazing job on brightening up my eye area and more, plus it looks so darn cute, oh my god ლ(⌒▽⌒ლ)

I'd really recommend it to anyone, and especially if you suffer from particularly dark eye circles like me. Click here if you want to buy it yourself, you will not be disappointed!

Have you tried this Brightening Eye Base, or love the Panda's Dream collection or Tonymoly? I'd love to know! o((*^▽^*))o

Beauty | Tonymoly Cats Wink Shiny Skin Base - Clear Lavender Review (Korean Cosmetics)

I've been sick with sinusitis for about 15 days now, which is my excuse as to why I've not posted in forever. Happy February, everybody! The year's really kicking in already, I can't believe it ( ゚Д゚)<!! Well, basically before I got sick, I treated myself to quite a few Korean make-up items from eBay, and by quite a few, I mean eight! I went a bit nuts ahahaha, I went all out and bought every item I'd need for a full face of make-up.

Here's the review of my first item! Tonymoly's Cats Wink Shiny Skin Base (updated link; original no longer available) in Clear Lavender, which is the shade designed for yellow toned skin. I would have ideally liked to purchase the Clear Peach shade, which is supposed to be for all skin types, but it wasn't in stock, and I do have slightly yellow toned skin. So here it is!

You can buy another alternative here (updated link; original from f2plus1 shop no longer available)

I actually didn't blend it fully so that you could see the contrast between my actual skin tone versus with the skin base. You wouldn't have thought it from seeing it in the first two pictures on my hand, but when blended properly, it perfectly matches my skin tone. When I first applied it I thought my face was going to be a weird whiteish purple ahahaha, but it really did match up excellently. Given that I'm stupidly pale, this is me hitting the motherload! I never find make-up that suits my whiteness very well, so I'm mega pleased! o((*^▽^*))o

For my fellow pale blog readers, as well as those with a more yellow skin tone, the Clear Lavender is wonderful for skin tone correction! It evens it out all over and gives your face a dewy finish (which I then cover with powder as I much prefer a matte finish, I just always need a liquid base otherwise my skin dries out). It seems to be a lot more difficult to get a hold of the other two shades of this Cats Wink Shiny Skin Base, although if you used it sparingly I don't see why it wouldn't work for those who are more tanned than I, so I guess it could work for everyone! (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

I really love it, my old Rimmel foundation has taken a backseat in my bathroom cabinets and this little baby now takes pride of place in my make-up bag. Check it out using the links below the original image :)
