Mizon RoseRoseShop Haul!

I Bought This

I made a teensy haul from RoseRoseShop recently, and I thought I’d share! Can you still call it a haul if it’s only two products…? Well, I got a lot of samples, so maybe it still counts. :blush: I am a big fan of Japanese skincare, but as most of you probably know, Korean skincare is all the rage lately. I used Benton’s Snail Bee line recently, and liked it enough that I wanted to try another snail mucin line. Mizon’s gotten a lot of good reviews around the interwebs, so I picked up two of their most popular snail products.

I got the Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream and the Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream. I have pretty combo skin, and after asking around in the AsianBeauty subreddit, I decided to get both to try out their differing moisture levels.

(By the way… can anyone tell me how to pronounce Mizon? I say “My-zon” in my head, but I wonder if it’s actually “Mee-zon.” Or maybe something else entirely?!)

RoseRoseShop has very reasonable prices, but the shipping is what’ll get ya! They are having a free shipping promotion on Mizon right now though, so I lucked out.

Plus, you can be assured you’re getting authentic product. It might be strange to think of counterfeit beauty products, but it’s a big problem! Mizon has authenticity stickers on their products to help you sort through the fakes.

I also like RoseRoseShop because they’re quite generous with the samples. I got samples of the Holika Holika Honey Sleeping Pack, Innisfree Wine Peeling Jelly Softener, Camellia Cream Rinse and The Green Tea Seed Oil, and It’sSkin Mangowhite Cleansing Foam.

So far I’ve only used the Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream but I don’t have any strong feelings yet. It is not as heavy as the Benton Snail Bee Steam Cream, and I feel I have to put a bit more than I’m used to (generous dime size vs. pearl size) to get enough moisture but so far, so good!

If you’ve used Mizon, can you tell me your favorites from the line? :clap:

ipsy August Bag

I Bought ThisAffiliate Link

Eagle-eyed readers might notice I didn’t put up my ipsy bag for June… this is because the weather has been very hot here lately and last month’s bag came completely ruined. There was a tube of moisturizer inside which burst and leaked over everything. I tossed out many of the products, and the bag itself. I contacted ipsy for a replacement which they promptly sent out, but it didn’t arrive until right before I left for MechaCon. By then, I got so caught up in con prep that it just never got put up. Well, unfortunately, my ipsy August bag didn’t fare so well either in the oppressive Louisiana heat. Let’s take a peek.

Shiro Cosmetics Color of the Month Haul

I Bought This

Indie makeup brands are, as I’ve noted before, terrible for the wallet. In order to save myself from the neverending torment of new collections and limited releases, I generally try to make hauls, as opposed to small purchases, just so I’m not constantly buying up one or two things. So, I actually missed out on a lot of Shiro Cosmetics’ Color of the Month eye shadows.

However, several months back, Shiro put up a lot of their older, more popular Color of the Months. The most popular out of these would be immortalized in their High Scores collection. Of course, I couldn’t let these go by, and I wasn’t sure which would make the cut, so I jumped the gun on a couple of must-have shades. What makes them must-have? Well, I’m not above admitting just the names alone enticed me…

But this is Shiro, so we know they’re going to be amazing shadows anyway! Hit the jump for details~ Continue reading

MechaCon 2014 Cosplay Lineup!

I Have Nothing to Disclose

If ever I disappear from the interwebs for a while, it’s likely that I fell down the cosplay hole. Tomorrow is MechaCon 2014, and I’ve been working like a madwoman to get ready for it. It was a little up in the air whether or not I was going to attend this year, as my sister just had her baby and I was set to fly up to NYC to visit her. But, we decided to push that back a little bit, so I hastily tried to get my ducks in a row for MechaCon.

I have been stressing and crying all week, trying to finish my cosplays, and I finally caught a moment to breathe so I thought I’d post up my cosplay lineup for the weekend. I’ll be bringing my new(ish) camera, so hopefully I can get lots of good pictures this time!

MechaCon 2014 Cosplay Lineup

On Friday, I’ll be driving up to the con and meeting up with my friends and checking into the hotel room. Melisandre is a relatively easy costume to get into, so I hope to be out and about in her by around noon at the latest. If you’re a fan of Game of Thrones, you should be familiar with this character. She wasn’t given as much development in the books (at least not until A Dance with Dragons), so I really love how the show beefed up her character.

Saturday, I’ll be wearing Mikasa Ackerman from Shingeki no Kyojin / Attack on Titan again, and this time I made some much-needed alterations to it so hopefully my leg straps won’t be slipping down all over, and the 3D Maneuver Gear can be taken off easily so I can, you know, sit down and go to the bathroom and stuff. :-_-: I hope I can get some nice shots of this, so I’ll be stalking photographers around…

Sunday, I’ll be in casual dress as I don’t have a third costume! I’m aiming to finish my Nightingale armor in time for NOLA Comic-Con next year.

I can’t wait for tomorrow! :clap:
