Hi guys! As the title says, I did a thing and recorded my first YouTube video! As I’m someone who abhors almost every iteration of her recorded self (picture, video, audio, etc.), this is pretty groundbreaking for me! It’s really amateur-looking, as I’m still learning how my camera works and lighting and such, but I thought it was good practice just to get it up even if it’s not perfect.
It’s nothing new, if you read my haul post from the other day, as I just go over those items as well as a few other rambly things, but check it out if you’re so inclined!
And, if you like it, please give it a thumbs up and subscribe so maybe I’ll make more~ Here’s my baby YouTube channel. Hopefully I can get it looking nice and pretty soon.
Let’s be real for a second — how many of you have ever loved a cleanser? Like, loved to the point of pearls-clutched-anxious at the thought of it being discontinued? Probably never, right? Probably, you’re like me, in that you’ve tried a LOT of cleansers and some have been good, some have been bad, some have been really bad, but most have just been meh. I don’t know many people who are face wash faithful. They might have a few they like, but they hop from one to one and it’s not the end of the world if it gets discontinued. They’re just not a sexy topic in a beauty regimen.
To add to that, cleansers are really good for only one thing, and one thing only: obviously, washing your face. I don’t expect mine to take off my makeup, but if it can get off the remnants of whatever my oil cleanser / regular remover missed, that’s great. If it doesn’t leave my face feeling like I’ve been staring into the sun while in the Antarctic, that’s even better. I also don’t really fall for all the crazy benefits that a lot of face washes try to tout, especially as they’re on your face for so little time, they really can’t be effective.
I honestly don’t expect much from a face wash, and I’m usually kind of apathetic about them. They’re just a necessary part of life, and not a particularly exciting one either. So, the fact that I’m downright giddy over getting to review this one should tell you something. Today, I’ve got The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam to show to you and omg I’m so excited I can’t even wait. Let’s get to it.
Hi guys! Today is just a quick post to show what I picked up during the recent Sephora VIB sale and ULTA sale. Also, I just found out that Skinfood makes darker shades of their Peach Sake Pore BB cream, so I also picked one of those up because reasons. In summation… I now have way more base makeup than any sane person will ever need in their lifetime.
Do you ever find yourself in coveting phases? For me, I’m in a foundation/BB cream/skin tint/base makeup phase right now. I want ALL the foundations. A few months ago, it was brow products, and before that, it was lipsticks. Anyway, after I sat back and was twiddling my thumbs waiting for all these packages to arrive, I slowly realized just how many foundations I picked up and gave myself a mental whack on the head. You’ll see what I mean.
I’m slowly working through getting my small Asian beauty haul up, so I’ll be unusually productive for a few weeks! Can I keep it up?! (Don’t answer that… ) With the exception of the Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer, these were products that I’ve been lemming for a while and finally decided to get. That’s a kind of recurring theme with me. These days, I very, very, very rarely run out and get the newest product as soon as it drops. I know it might not seem like it, seeing as how I have an… extensive makeup stash *cough*, but I’m actually very frugal with my money. I agonize over purchases for days, if not weeks, and I almost always wait to see if other bloggers have gotten their reviews up so I can check to see what they think before parting with my cash. Today’s review is about the Etude House Baby Choux Base, a product that’s well beloved among Asian beauty fans.
