Ipsy June 2015!

Hi, Guys!
How have you guys been?
NYC has been having some rain these days.
It has been very humid and disgusting.
How is the weather like in your area?

Anyway, I have decided that I am no longer going to be sharing Ipsy and Birchbox together.
Instead, I'll be sharing them separately.
And today, I am finally sharing what I received in Ipsy this month.
(Curious about Birchbox? Don't worry! That post will be up early next week!)

For those of you who don't know, Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription service. It is $10 a month and each month they sent 4-5 deluxe or full size products. It is a great way to try new and different products!


Here is a picture of my June Ipsy bag:

Products I received:

  • Jules & Ester Vitamin C Serum 
  • Smashbox Cosmetics Photofinish Foundation Primer 
  • Key West Aloe Mango Moisturizing Lotion 
  • SheaMoisture Shea Butter Lip Crayon in Sarah 
  • tre'stiQue Mini Shadow Crayon in Kona Coffee 
For more detail thoughts and look into the bag: 

Overall, this month's bag was good mix of makeup and skincare items. However, there were nothing that stood out to me. Likewise, none of the products were terrible. I can definitely see myself using these products. But, I am just not excited to be trying them. 

What did you thing of Ipsy this month? What was your favorite item? What was your least favorite item?

Review: Garnier Clean Plus Sensitive Skin Makeup Removing Cleanser Lotion

Hi, Guys!
Today, I have a review on the new makeup removing product from Garnier.
I have been using Garnier Clean Plus Sensitive Skin Makeup Removing Cleanser for almost a month now. I have a pretty solid thoughts on it and I thought I'll share my view with you guys.


  • It really is gentle as it claims. Would recommend for people with sensitive skin. 
  • It is cheap. It retails for about $6 at
  • It doesn't remove eye makeup as it claims. 
  • Double cleansing necessary. It leaves the skin feeling slippery otherwise. 
Final thought: 
It's definitely a product that won't hurt your wallet to give it a try. I would definitely recommend this product to someone with a sensitive skin. I would probably repurchase this product sometime in the future. 

Find the product here:

Watch my video:

I was actually sent this product from Cosmopolitan Latina Magazine. I am not Latina (I am Korean), but I am subscribed to Cosmopolitan and they sometimes send an issue of the Cosmopolitan Latina along with the regular Cosmopolitan. I think they were collecting thoughts on the product.

Daily Bits:

  • Omg I went to Ssinnim's (씬님) meet and greet today at YouTube Space in NY. She is a Korean beauty youtuber (for those of you who are not familiar with her). She was amazing! Her channel:
  • I also met another Korean beauty youtuber there. Her name is Sunny and she looks like a doll! Her channel:
  • I also filmed a video getting ready for the meet and greet, so hopefully that will go up sometime next week. Though, I wasn't super happy with the makeup. 
  • While I was waiting for a train after the meet up, I encounter a most annoying group of tourist ever! They were talking very loudly, singing something, and making baby noises. Also, two people from the group were playing with my hair. I mean, who plays with stranger's hair?

Unboxing: Walmart Beauty Box Spring 2015

Hi, Guys!

Today, I am sharing the content of my Walmart Beauty Box for Spring 2015.
Walmart Beauty Box is a subscription box from Walmart. It is relatively new and is delivered every season (4 times a year). The box itself cost nothing, but the shipping is $5. Basically, the box is $5.
Check out the box here:

Inside the box: 
  • Essence Ultimate Omega Repair & Moisture Shampoo (Travel Size) - I never heard or seen anything about this brand, so I was surprised to see this brand in the box. 
  • Essence Ultimate Omega Repair & Moisture Conditioner (Travel Size) 
  • Neutrogena Healthy Skin Boosters Facial Cleanser (Sample Size) - I am running very low on my current facial cleanser, so I am glad for this product. I can get at least couple of use out of it before I have time to pick up a new facial cleanser. Though, I never tried a facial cleanser from Neutrogena before. 
  • Dove Go Fresh Nutrium Moisture in Mandarin & Tiare Flower Scent (Travel Size) - This body wash smells really good. I love anything citrus scent, so I am in love with it ! 
  • Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara in 001 Black (Full Size) - I haven't tried too many Rimmel mascara, so this is a good addition to the box for me. I probably won't open it for a while though, since I have way too many mascaras opened right now. 
  • Lady Gaga Fame Perfume (Sample Size) - Perfume samples are not my favorite to get in these type of boxes, because I tend to not use them. This one smells pretty nice though. 
That was it for actual products in this box. I got a different coupons for makeup and body and hair care. Some of these coupons included foil packets or texture samples. 

Overall Thoughts: 
Overall, I thought this box wasn't a bad deal for just $5. The Rimmel mascara itself probably covers the cost of the box. However, one thing that I am not happy about this service, is that so far the three boxes they delivered included a sample of shampoo and conditioner. I wish they stopped sending a sample of shampoo and conditioner and included something else. Also, I think this season's box didn't have any one thing that won me over the box. 

Daily Bits: 
  • I went for  a brain MRI yesterday. It was one of the weirdest medical exam I had so far. The noise that the machines makes is so nerve wracking. 
  • I finally got my hands on two of Rimmel Provocalips and I have been loving it! 
  • My left ring fingernail has been weird ever since the infection. I hate how it looks with a nail polish on. 
  • I am planning to dye my hair within 2 weeks. The only thing is that I am not sure what color I want.
