Leaders Insolution 5 in One White Potent Cream

Greetings!
I am not quite sure, how to start, today. Because I am introducing you a new brand, LEADERS INSOLUTION. 
This cream was a gift from my friend, Amy. One day she came super excited with this cream in her hands!


How does it look like?


The design is very unique, I could say luxury-like design. Outside transparent wall is making shadows and showing it's silhouette on the inner wall. I guess design overcame the quality because I broke pearl light expensive-looking blue lid to access cream without pushing dispenser.


Promised effect.

Unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo of the box again, but a few days ago, I took a picture of it, at least, the most important part.

Well, this 5 in one should contain:

skin (I guess, it's skin softener) + essence + lotion + cream +sunscreen (SPF 50+)

Plus: anti-wrinkle and whitening effect.

Usage.
Push the dispenser after opening and cream will come out. 
I didn't see recommendation like this, but I strongly recommend use this cream:

1. As a DAY CREAM, because of sunscreen SPF 50+.
2. Only for people older than 25+ yrs, because of anti-wrinkle effect. It can damage young skin.
3. You should clean dispenser every week, at least. Maybe it would be better every few days because it will be full of dirt.

Testing:

The cream itself is having very light texture compared to my other creams. Easy to apply, spread and quick absorbing. Smells are nice, kind of refreshing and reminds me the smell of sunscreen, a lot. 




Summary:

Design: 3/5. I like its design, double wall with shadow on the inner wall... However lid got broken and I am not very happy about it. Also, dispenser is getting dirty and it must be cleaned often. That's why 2 points down. Sorry.
Promised effect: 5/5. I might know better cream, but since this is 5 in one,  (but only day cream) and we can say, that you can skip many products thanks to this miracle product, it can keep 5 of 5 points.
Price: 4/5. Until now, I saw this product around 30-50 USD, but it's 5 in 1...
Buying again? 4/5 I am not really using it (my skin doesn't need anti-wrinkle and whitening effects), but I am recommending this product to busy people, who don't want to lose time with applying cream/essence/whitening/anti-wrinkle/lotion/sunscreen/
skin softener products separately.

Hello, girls!


How are you?
I promised myself, that I won't post EH review this time, and as you can see, I prepared for you complete Canola Honey reviews series, because I have almost whole set, as you can see! I had to divide this review, because I own 5 items: cream, mist, hand cream, pack & cream and serum. 

And this review will be about Canola Honey Cream! ^^

Etude House Fantastic Color Eyes Hallowinner review

Hello my girls!

I am bringing you new review of recent treasure! If you stop by my blog sometimes, you might read my review of EH limited collection eyeshadows fall 2015 Pupmqueen, but I was not fully satisfied and I hurried to buy Hallowinner as well!

How does it look like?


This item was aired with Pumpqueen, so they should have similar design of course, but this time, EH gave us quite a surprise! While Pumpqueen cover is matte, Hallowinner is definitely glossy and it can work like a mirror! 

You don't have to open a plastic case to check yourself, ha! But it was a pain to take a photos =_=;;
I like design very much, but problem is, you will have to clean it often, because of fingerprints.

About the colors.


City Romance - neutral brown, almost grey color. It has some light shimmers and looks good as everyday make up, very natural.
Candy Shop - I think, this color is so cute! It's definitely not bad as daily everyday make up too.

Jealousy - great for co-working with City Romance and Candy shop shade!

Halloween Fantasy - This kind of brown looks different after you applying. Final shade looks more like orange or copper instead of brown.


Abracadabra - This works like eyeliner and also shade. (creamy)


Witch Soup - this shade is super special! Base color is brown, but it has purple pearl shimmer/aura! I love it so much, but what a shame, they could include much more colors like this. *dolling* 





Etude House Official Preview 



Summary:

Design of the product: 4/5 I like this design, but it will get dirty too often from fingerprints, one point down, sorry!
Promised effect: 5/5 Great for everyday use and party look as well.
Price: 3/5 Price is still about 16.50-22.50, maybe even more. 

Buying again? Limited edition

Thank you for reading and see you next time! Have a nice day! ^^

Etude House Fantastic Color Eyes Hello Pumpqueen review!

Hello my readers!

I am back, again, with a new review! Something interesting happened recently and I want to share it with you! kkk
I noticed, that limited EH editions are selling off much more quicker than ever before. How is it possible? 
1. opinion, they ordered less items for stock than ever before;
2. opinion, do they have more fans?
Everyone knows, that EH fans are increasing rapidly, also for their strong global promoting, but they are definitely decreasing the number of items which are coming to their stores.

Let's stop with talking and let's do reviewing!

How does it look like?
Item comes in paper cover, after opening, there is plastic cover of item itself. I really like, that this item comes with a mirror like other fantastic color eyes! 
Anyway, I do like design, it's something new.

About the colors

Cacao Fondue - creamy texture, u can use it also as an eyeliner! ^^

Brown Sugar - this color looks seriously sooo yummy and it's the darkest shade in this palette.
Pearl Lantern - glittering texture. Great for highlighting!

Honey Pumpkin - OMG, I love this one, this kind of orange is gorgeous. Good for vivifying entire impression of color shade on your eyes.

Caramelizing- this shade surprised me the most, because of its thick glittering texture. I mean, seriously thick and highly pigmented. This color is like real copper.
A Piece of Pie - I am not sure what to say about this color. It looks similar to "Brown Sugar", but it's not the same, "Piece of Pie" is definitely lighter and colder color.




Official Etude House Preview: 



Summary:

Design of the product: 5/5 I like this design ^^
Promised effect: 5/5 Doing it's job very well! Good for everyday use as well.
Price: 3/5 Price is not bad actually, but some sellers are over-pricing this item, due to decreased number of this Limited Edition in stock. Price is now about 16.50-22.50

Buying again? Limited edition

Thank you for reading and I hope, you had wonderful Halloween! See you next time. ^^

NOTE 1:  I used also Etude House Play 101 Pencil #52, but it's very rare to get it. It's super glitter pink color and I used it to outlet side of my eyebag.

NOTE 2: You could use probably color "Zombie Kiss" instead of 
#PK004 single shadow, but "Zombie Kiss" is more like balm than eye shadow. I use it as lipstick often. Color shade is almost the same :)NOTE 3: I forgot take a photo with Play 101 pencil  #05, maybe you noticed that instead of #05 I took a photo of #52 :'D in "what do we need" picture. haha


Thank you very much for reading. Enjoy upcoming weekend. ^_^

My Autumn Choice. Innisfree Mineral Single Shadow - review


Hello my dear readers!

Autumn is showing it's colors already, weather is slightly cooling down. It was even snowing last week here!
That's why, I am slowly changing my colors, not only my clothes color choice, but also my eyeshadows!

Today, I will share with you my experience with Innisfree Mineral Single Shadow. :)


How does it look like?

You might notice, single shadows are quite popular among cosmetic brands nowadays. Innisfree is one of those brands, but there is still something outstanding about those eyeshadows. 
They have interesting color choice. Most of the colors have kind of glitters and rich pigmentation.

About the colors
Actually it's made of Jeju's mineral powder. I can admit, that it has a specific texture and outstanding colors. They are also promising radiant glow.
NO.42 Maple Leaf
산책로의 단풍잎 -
 is not as dark as it seems to be. It's more like vintage brown mixed with a drop of orange color.
It has great pigmentation and I have already a vision with this color using it for smoky eyes. Yay!


NO.43 Golden Dazzling Sunset
눈부신 금빛노을 - for me, definitely warm natural metallic shade. And it's outstanding during using. 

NO.24 Soft Velvet Carpet
보드라운 벨벳 카펫 -  great for skin highlighting for eyebags. But this one in more like transparent color.




Summary:

Design of the product: 4/5 A little bit difficult to open, but natural design is good!
Promised effect: 5/5 smoothnesspigmentation and natural color choices are wonderful♥
Price: 4/5 not the cheapest, not the most expensive. I know that's it's similar quality or better than MAC, so I am giving it 4 or 5. (I bought it in Korea, where price was under 5 dollars but on the internet, price is over 6 dollars. Check all prices before buying) ^^

Thank you for reading, enjoy autumn's weather and see you next time! ^^

Etude House Bling Me Prism Eyes 01 Honey Glam Review

Hello my dear readers!

How are you? I hope, you are doing fine! Today, I will write a review about Bling Me Prism limited edition. I was in the store, when it just arrived~ but I am writing a review only now, because I was just so busy. I hope, you kindly understand my slow progress of reviews. kkk

So how does it look like?

I bought color number one, Honey Glam, which is in my option maybe even kind of "nude" or "natural" shade.
Packing is in the item's color, which is rare, but pretty handy with recognizing items. And it's a limited collection, so don't hesitate to buy it~

It's a liquid eyeshadow. It might be very handy as a base shade. You can gradient it with play pencils or another eyeshadows. I toned up base color into orange with play pencil number 4. And result? Bling Me Prism Honey Glam + Play pencil 04 makes a MAGIC ♥.


I simply love glitters on eyes but I hate removing it, because a few days later I still see some glued glitters around my eyes. hahaha 

About the brush~

Brush is soft, but for more blending you will need additional brush, or your finger.

This brush is having also some aerodynamic shape. For applying on big and small areas! ^^

For more noticeable color result, you will have to use more layers. I always apply it twice.

Did you notice that brushes for lip glosses and liquid eyeshadows are furry? 


How long can it last? 

Actually, I didn't intend to test, but you can party hard and this eyeshadow will look like freshly applied! Yay! After a few hours dancing in Gangnam, I looked the same, that's very good plus+. 

I don't like eyeshadows which are on my cheeks and blown by my sweat far away. haha

There was also super event, I've got cute ring :)
I could chose between ring and bracelet from 2 designs.

Testing the color
I absolutely love this color. It reminds me food or something warm. I can't really say, that it has glitters, but there is some metallic reflection for sure.

Official Etude preview:



Summary: 
Design of the product: 5/5 I feel it as a fresh wave  to other collections :)
Promised effect: 5/5 I like long lasting effect the most + pigmentation ♥ 
Price: 4/5 I think, it's fair price, but not the cheapest. Up to you, to decide, if you want to buy.
Buying again? YES!

See you soon and thank you for reading ^^ Have a nice day~

The Saem - Eco Seoul Wonderful Peel-off Base Coat Nail Polish

Hello girls! 
I am sorry for being kind of "afk" for some time. But my new university semester just started. I've been busy, but I found time, to share with you my new experience!

Today, I will talk about The Saem's Peel-off Base Coat Nail Polish. I've got it in Myeongdong, the best shopping part of Seoul, for me. I don't know, how I came inside of that shop, I think, some lady in front of shop gave me something into my hands and pushed me inside. hahaha


note: The Saem has lovely nail polishes, you should check them!



Just like usually, they tried to make me buy everything, but I was stubborn. Lady was very happy, that I could speak Korean to her. 

But I told her, that I have plenty of glitter nail polishes and bunny nail polishes and it's a pain to remove it.
Then she pointed at this Base Coat and told me, that it's very good to use it as a base coat. With little fear, I took it into my shopping card, not sure, if we understood each other well, but I paid. And with optimism, I told myself "It's not bad to have one more white nail polish, if it will not work." I didn't read description at first. ^^;

How does it look like?


It doesn't come with any paper packing. It includes only "a paper safety mark," to protect item being opened before purchase, so you can know, that nobody opened it, before you. There is not much written in Korean. Only The Seam, Eco Seoul, Nail collection and peel-off base. And it's only in Korean, maybe it's disadvantage for foreign customers.


About nail polish, you might be surprised, at first glance it looks like white color, but after drying, it becomes completely sheer. So you don't have to be worried.

Contains 10 ml of base peel-off nail polish.


Promised effects:

Smell is very soft. Not even like a nail polish. And that's because, you can make base coat at your home by yourself as well.

Drying time is about 20 minutes for thin layer. But thick layer dries much more longer.

You should wait, until base coat will be completely dried!

Stands very good as a base and it's easier to remove glitters.

Changing color from milky to sheer.

Removing:
(Picture is down below.)
 

Removing is very simple. Just pull the edge of applied base coat. It works nice also with nail polish remover. Or you can use some stick for removing. (I saw it somewhere.) 

*But you should apply base coat carefully on whole nail area, then there will be no nail polish "glued" into your nail.


removing base coat
Summary:

Design: 4/5 I would mind only one thing, not having description on the product.
Promised effect: 5/5 I am fully satisfied.
Price: 5/5 I am not sure, but I think, it was 2,000 KRW = less than 2 dollars. Pretty cheap!
Would you buy again? 5/5 Definitely!

I hope, you enjoyed it. If you know better base coat, just let me know! ^^
Have a nice day~

It's skin carrot brightening mask - review



Hello, my dear readers! I know, that some of you might be full enough of my EH reviews. But, their commercial strength is so huge! Good commercial = many buyers! It's Skin might not be so popular, but they tried to get customers with good looking oppas on the products.










Explanation? I've got another mask as a gift for entering It's Skin shop, with handsome man in the top picture. But that's not everything. You could get a fan with handsome man, or cotton pads with handsome man. Actually, they have events like that almost every day.

This mask had very good price, actually 50% discount. 10 masks for ₩5,000! So, one mask was for ₩500.

NOTE: ₩500 is about US $0,45. Yes, less than half dollar for mask.

I chose carrot mask, for brightening effect~



How does it look like?

I like design a lot, it's simple and cute. With a realistic drawing. Reminds me grandma's recipe or vintage packing.

How to use?

Classically, open a mask and put on a clean face and let it absorb for about 15-20 minutes. And then gently remove mask.


Does it really work?

They are clearly promising brightening effect, but I can't see any difference, what is interesting. I don't want to make this mask look bad, but I took also photo, before, during and after. You can see, that it didn't give me any brightening/whitening effect... 



BUT:

-my skin feels hydrated well.
- can feel glowing effect. 
-skin feels fresh.
-no smell of carrot? Is it really carrot mask?
(note: sun started shinning in the "after photo" but there was glowing effect for sure)

Summary:


Design of the product: 3/5 I like it! But, you might notice strange shape of mask, which is not covering much of my face.


Promised effect: 3/5 I would name it glowing effect refreshing mask. 


Price: 5/5 Around half US dollar is great price!

Would you buy again? 2/5 more likely not. I will try bamboo and snail mask from it's skin, next time.


Thank you for reading. Have you tried this mask? What was your result?

See you next time and don't mind to comment! ^^

Do you really need ETUDE Sweet Drinking Bottle? Event information and Review


Hello my dear readers!

Do you wanna be sweet today? This review is not so traditional, but very FRESH~~~ Because now is still ONGOING event in Etude House official website! But, do you really need it? Let's read pros and cons first, then you can decide!

So what's going on?

If you buy from the official website for over 50 US dollars, you can get this sweet drinking bottle! BUT I hate to say this, but you need to add it to your shopping card by yourself. Their system is super tricky. I didn't get Etude pen last time, because after refreshing website I accidentally clicked somewhere and I was moved to paypal and I couldn't come back to check my card, if it's there or not, card was empty. So be extra careful!

One more note, you can get free shipping, maybe even two times per month, but it's a risk to wait. During August, I grabbed free shipping for orders over 50 dollars~ so I paid only at customs office 15 dollars.


For lucky people in Japan!


Similar event was also in Japan, you could buy only any cushion and you could get Sweet drinking bottle! 

I cut whole picture, it was much more longer before! Mostly it was about types Any Cushions. I thought, it's not necessary, I hope you don't mind.

This event is finished. But maybe it might appear again. ^^

How does it look like?

Packing is super cute, pink box with stripes by it's side walls. It's not as heavy as I expected.

One box contains:
-lid
-bottle, but cup is more suitable
-straw (don't worry, not one time use)

About:


Pros

Luckily, title is not printed out, but put inside of free empty space among walls.

Looks super cute!

Cons

It already has some scratches and I didn't use it yet.
It's made mostly of plastics. Materials: AS, PS, PP and Rubber.

Smells very bad (like plastic) after opening. Clean preciously before using.

It's not completely closed, so you can't really travel with it (in the bag).

You shouldn't let lid on the cup for too long time after drinking, because molds love closed spaces with water remains.

You can clean it only with SOFT sponge.


COLD drinks only.

Can't use dishwasher, microwave, freezer, boiling water and a stove.
Why? Plastic materials are leaving dangerous remains during warming process. And it's not even safe to drink from plastic bottle every day, too.

Size:

Size with lid: 16,2 cm
Size without lid: 15,8 cm

Straw size: 21 cm
Capacity: 590 ml

Summary:

Design: 5/5 super sweet

Promised effect: 2/5 not healthy to use it every day

Price: 4/5 for free, but you have to spend over 50 dollars. 

So do I regret buying buying this? No, actually I don't, but having cold drinks in it are possible around spring. Now autumn started and weather is changing slowly into cold, so also I am preferring hot tea in these days over cold drinks. For now, I am keeping straw unopened and Sweet drinking bottle closed back in the packing.

Thank you for reading and don't mind to comment your opinions. ^^

Have a nice day~ Your Nana
