Hello, everyone!

Are you ready for some action? Just kidding, today I prepared special double review called "battle"! I will compare products based on some basic criteria and winner of each round will lead into final battle. This battle will be a little bit unfair, as Cream Filter is an upgrade of Any Cushion, read until the end to see the final result! ^^ 

NOTE: Full name is of this cushion is ANY CUSHION CREAM FILTER, but it's too long, so I shortened it into Cream Filter, don't be confused :D

Innisfree Bija Anti-Trouble Skin REVIEW

Hello, everyone!

I hope you had wonderful summer holidays. I just realized that it's already September. The new semester is here and soon, we (students and teachers) will get super busy! ^^


Recently I started with testing my samples, as I have too many of them. And I found Bija Anti-Trouble skin and lotion in a tiny cute box. I have problems with pores as most of the World's population and Bija line was promising things which stole my mind. So I bought toner/skin and also lotion! :D

"A toner made from natural Jeju torreya for treating blemished skin! 

1. The outstanding healing effects of the torreya seed oil help troubled skin. 2. Contains natural salicylic acid for exfoliation and blemish care. 3. The naturally fermented alcohol soothes skin. 4. 100% Natural essential oil: The scent of pine, juniper berries, and the forest comforts your mind and body."

Hello, girls~

I have a good news, my blog passed 20.000 views yesterday!!! Congratulations! 축하합니다! Thank you very much~ And I have a good news for you as I prepared a new tutorial for you. YouTube got a new hit, Taeyeon and her music video "Why" and I am in love with that song. ♥ 
Taeyeon looks so beautiful and cute! (Taeyon form S N S D or Girl's Generations) She changed her hair color to blonde and all her music video was filmed in U.S. It suits her so much. I wish I had all her hairstyles too. It's like you want to look like Taeyon and you want to have sweet memories in the U.S. like she had. Anyway, if you were watching her video, you can notice many scenes with her nails. It's like it was calling me to make this tutorial. And she had cute tattoos on her fingers :D

ETUDE HOUSE Dear My Wish Lips Talk PK002 Review

Hello, princesses!

I am back after passing first important exam and directly writing a review on Dear My Wish Lips Talk from Etude House! ^^ How are you doing? I hope you are doing great ♥ Let's skip to the review:


A few months ago, I participated in Etude House event and somehow I won this lipstick~ When I found this lipstick in the box, I was worried because I expected the worst shade, leftover which nobody wanted (it was an event after all). I've got surprised as I realized, that I've got the best shade from Dear My Wish line (2014). Ha! :D

Item comes in a cute paper package and the lipstick itself is made of a kind of glossy plastic container. It's a little bit older collection, but it can still be found in some shops. This paper box reminds pumpkin carriage for Cinderella. They had to put a lot of money into this paper package! And lipstick case looks fabulous as well!

ETUDE HOUSE Bubble Tea Sleeping Pack - Strawberry Review

Hello, beauties!~

Some of you saw my first cosmetic wishlist where I mentioned a sleeping pack from ETUDE HOUSE. It was just a wishlist, but my bank account had still some money left... not zero yet, so I started buying things from my wishlist. :'D

How does it look like?

Item comes in a paper package and plastic container. The package is cute as well as a plastic container. Jelly sleeping pack includes real bubbles similar to original bubble tea. 

Other types

This item comes in 3 different flavours:
 Green Tea Black Tea Strawberry 
(secret photo from Etude House)

Promised effect

"The bubble tea sleeping pack makes skin clear and full of vitality overnight with the mixture of strawberry gel and moisture capsule bubble." Etude is also promising moisture and brightening. The item itself has a beautiful strawberry scent. 

This bubble looks so strange :D

Sleeping pack might be temporary sticky after applying. And for me it's kind of weak moisturize as I am level "extreme" dryness type. I used this item also  to my damaged skin (accidentally) and I had a painful reaction. 
I found this website http://www.cosdna.com/eng/cosmetic_e576228118.html where is described the list of ingredients. You can see, alcohol has not pretty numbers in irritation value, at all.


Design 4/5 I find it difficult to open the container while the spoon attached. You have to remove the spoon, put it somewhere and open the product. But it looks super cute ^^
Promised effect 3/5 One point down for Alcohol in the ingredients which might irritate your damaged skin. Another one down for stickiness when you use too much of the product and the weak moisturise.
Price 5/5 11.000 KRW is about 10 USD. We can still consider it as not that expensive.
Buying again? It looks super cute, but I had more impressing sleeping pack :)

I bought this item more like because of curiosity. What do you think about it? Have you ever try Bubble tea? Thank you for reading~

If you like my posts, please follow me! ♥

Tutorial: Like from the Magazine Look featuring EH Juice Bar Eyeshadows!

Hello, my dear ddalgies! °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°

How are you doing everyone? This year is passing so quickly! How is it possible? But blogging is so fun! I am creating new and new reviews and working on new tutorials. So I hope will like this post ♥ I was working very hard. 

I am super happy to posting this tutorial! I was about to abandon this post, but today I've got a new strength and I just finished it, so I really hope you will like it~

How did I get this idea? A few weeks ago, I saw a beautiful yellow T-shirt, kind of blouse in Koton (my favorite shop ever, it's from Istanbul). I fell in love and for 10 dollars this shirt/blouse was more than likely welcomed in my wardrobe. This entire tutorial is to fit my new blouse. ♥ This yellow shade was so lovely and there is a beautiful detail made of gems there. It was a love at first sight! Inspiration is everywhere :D

The SAEM Urban Eco Harakeke Firming Seed Oil review

Oily skin? Dry skin? Dry and oily skin combo? Do you also experience huge pores? I have combo skin with T-zone. Usually, there is no choice in cosmetics products. You can choose only between a product from the line for curing your pores, but it will leave your skin dry. Or you can try to cure your dryness however, your skin will get just more oily. Ladies and girls, I would like to introduce to you, my savior Urban Eco Harakeke Firming Seed Oil.

ETUDE HOUSE Precious Mineral Any Cushion Haul and Review

Welcome back, my dear readers <3

As I was about to post EH Juice Bar Haul when I realized... I forgot to post review of my beloved Any Cushion from Etude House~

I was very skeptical about buying Any Cushion. To be sure, which one to choose, I came to Etude House every day and tested each Any Cushion on half of my face. Results? I had 3 Cushions in my final round: 

1. Precious Mineral Any Cushion Light Pearl Aura (includes pearl brightener),
2. Precious Mineral Any Cushion Magic Mint (perfect for covering face redness),
3. Moistfull Collagen Foundation (which is not really cushion anyway :D)

However, I liked results of 3. Collagen Foundation the most, it was super heavy on my face and I couldn't stand using it for a long time. 2. Magic tint, greenish cushion had great results and using it was very comfortable. Unfortunately, my face looked like the ghost. It didn't cover just my redness, but also a natural color of my face. All my experience made sure, to buy 1. Light Pearl Aura~

UPDATED: BBIA Last Lipstick Velvet Matte Red Series Review

Hello, everyone ♪

I will be super busy soon, as I am signing to more and more part-time jobs. I kind of feel like Park Shinhye in "Heirs" as I do more working than studying now. BUT, I am still not satisfied with my amount of my cosmetics yet (my boyfriend thinks I have enough stuff, I disagree :D), because I need money to expand my humble collection~☆。゚+.(人-ω◕ฺ)゚+.゚~

's stop talking and let's do review, I've got 2 lovely lipsticks from BBIA~


Last lipstick came in 2 different series: RED SERIES and RED SERIES 2 - in the green coat. As you can see, I have one from each series. You might be surprised, but the main propagator of BBIA lipsticks is Suzy! Suzy is wearing this lipstick almost at every photo shoot which she is doing for many kinds of magazines.  

The surprising fact is the shape of the lipstick, as it comes in a precise block, as well as the package. I have to mention that it was difficult to take lipstick out of the box because size and shape of package and lipstick is almost the same.

Etude House - Play Color Eyes Juice Bar Review

Hello, everyone!

Valentine's day is approaching in few hours and I've got a beautiful present from my boyfriend, already! I know, it's little bit earlier, but this gift is very exciting, so I am sharing it with you~ 

Juice Bar eyeshadows are fresh and came out with a new sweet line "Berry Delicious" (but it's not part of this line). Eyeshadows became a quickly best-selling item on Etude House Korean website of last week (this week number one is In the cafe eyeshadows - once again).

Innisfree Canola Honey Series part 2 - Serum which does magic review

How are you, everyone? Today I prepared part 2 of Canola Honey Series reviews! 

To be honest, I had Canola Honey trial kit, which I wanted to review for you too, and I wanted to give a terrible review to Serum because it seemed useless. But It decided to try it, at least. And I realized that it works. I worked that well, that I've bought 2 bottles of this serum. :D Alright, let's stop with story background and let's do the review!

How does it look like?

Item reminds Canola Honey design as other products from the line. The new remarkable point is dispenser. And surprising is also size. I was suspecting it to be a little bit bigger because mist it about 3 cm taller.

The size of serum is 50 ml, which is average. The sample was 10 ml and it was without a dispenser. I think the sample was pretty huge, for being just sample! But in the sample, I couldn't recognize honey smell as I clearly noticed in original size product.

Promised effect

Innisfree promises serum containing a hydrating formula with Jeju Canola Honey and Canola Honey oil forms which deeply replenishes your skin with moisture. This time, we didn't get exact percentage of real honey inside. :D


Orange-gel like liquid with the honey smell. Gives softness and deep moisturizing even for dryest skin like mine. I realized huge improvement in my pore acne scars! I highly recommend to use it with Canola Honey cream for a perfect result!

Note: You should use a serum before cream.

I checked this product with SKINCARISMA again. I really like that website. Skincarisma analyze of Canola Honey Serum says there is a risk for a sensitive, oily and dry skin. Maybe because this item contains also alcohol. But for some strange reason I didn't have any scary side effect, actually, it helps a lot my dry and oily and sensitive skin. It might be a little bit risky to buy if you are worried about alcohol. You might want to see full ingredients list with an explanation here.


Design: 5/5 Casual, Innisfree-like, chic!
Promised effect: 5/5 This product is great for cold dry winter days but also for people with dry skin and combo skin oil/dryness. Does impressive deep moisturize ♥ 
Price: 4/5 Well, sadly you can find this product from 20USD to 30USD, check for some sale~
Buying again? 5/5 I've got 2nd bottle already!

Missed part 1?

I hope you enjoyed this review, I will bring update with my pore scars fight. How is your serum? Would you exchange it with this one? I wish you a great week and don't forget to check my blog for a new updates from Calnola Honey Series ^^

Innisfree Eco Nail Color 127 북극여우의 입김 review

Hello, girls~

Today, I made a review about a very lovely nail polish, which might look not so useful, but I will make you sure, that it's super lovely and usable for all occasions! I didn't really know how to style this product. In the end, I decided to take photos in the sparking background and I also added some special graphics effects. This shade used in this review will be number 127 (북극여우의 입김).

Snowy Dessert Play 101 Pencil Review

Hello, my snowy ddalgies!

Today, I would love to show you my new Play 101 Pencils. I love collecting them, they are useful and handy! (I am getting too many of them) The new limited edition is here! (●♡∀♡))ヾ☆*。Play Pencil's shades are like heaven's match with strawberry pepero (Korean snacks). How can it look so yummy ♥


Snowy Dessert Play 101 Pencils were launched on Pepero day (Pocky / Mikado day for rest of the world), which was 11. 11. 2015. It was great timing! It's a Pepero day because of four ones 1 1 1 1 and it looks like a Pepero in the packaging.

Only a 5 new colors were launched, what is so strange, until now they always made 10 new shades. What is Etude preparing next time? Valentine's day edition with 5 additional colors?

I have a photo from a shopping mall in Seoul, showing all 5 new colors. I've got only 3 because I don't use brown and red much. So you can at least check how they look like in real! ^^ Etude House store looks so magical during winter. I wish I could buy all the items from this limited collection, but I am so broke  :D all items are so cute, but I decided to buy only a Play Pencil Sticks.

How does it look like?

Packing was changed completely, I kinda like it, but I had problems to open it (good old paper boxes!). If they made all 5 shades into one big pepero packing, it would be much more interesting, but it's just my idea.

Compare old and Snowy Dessert Play 101 Pencils

Color shade is not included on sharpener (they put pencil's shade on the lining) and pencil number was moved to the main body part. Pencil shape is the same, only with different base color, dark brown.

About the colors

71 - this pink is beautiful, might look girlish, but the pigmentation is mixed and shine has additional color!
72 - brown with shimmering. This brown might look a little bit boring, but I think it might look great as a eyeshadow.
73 - I have high expectations of this warm gold color, I was looking for a replacement for my eye tint!

Colors look very sweet indeed. From my 3 shades, I like pink the most (71), because of it's unique shine. The expectation of light brown (72) was a little bit different, but I think mixing it with gold (73) will have a good result! ^^

Design: 4/5 I don't like changed number position and shade, because it is harder to orient in my huge collection.
Promised effect: 5/5 any complaints.
Price: 4/5 from 5-10 USD.

Buying again? Limited edition.
