{REVIEW} My make-up bag + Taiwanese shimmer stick review

Hello! First I'm going to start this post off with some pictures of what's in my make-up bag! hehe, this should be fun, yeah? c;

Stuff on the left side

Stuff on the right side

So, on the left side I've got my actual "make-up" which includes my Stila lip glaze in Pinkle Twinkle, my menthal lip shine from Bath & body Works in Hot Buttered Rum, my Urban Decay lash primer/waterproofer, my Napoleon Perdis Set mascara in black, my Taiwanese shimmer stick in white (not sure what the brand is; the name kind of got rubbed off), my Urban Decay 24/7 glide-on eye pencil in Yeyo, and my Urban Decay Grind House sharpener. I usually don't carry much, just the stuff I need for everyday wear and whatnot.

On to the right side! On the right side I store most of my tools and things I might need, just in case. I've got my eyelash curler, an empty lens case, a travel bottle filled with lens solution, eye drops for when my contacts get dry, my cute pink mini tweezerman tweezers, e.l.f. oil blotting sheets, double-eyelid tape, two hair-ties, and my pink bang holder. This stuff comes in handy all the time and I'm so glad that I have it in there.


Okay, now it's time for my review on the Taiwanese shimmer sticks. I ordered mine from Angelic Rain for $4 + free shipping. Here is what mine looks like:

When my package was delivered, it got left out in the mailbox and my poor little shimmer stick had to endure the 100+ degree weather. It ended up melting a little bit, but I held it under the AC in my mom's car with hopes of it cooling off and luckily it did! So I had a somewhat normal looking shimmer stick after that! >w<

Swatch on my hand

As you can see, it's very bright and shimmery. It's pretty, isn't it? c:

Color: ★★★★★
Smudge-proof?: No, but I'm more than sure that it's meant to be smudge-able. It's very easy to blend.
Long-lasting?: Yes. For me it lasts around 6-8 hours, and then I have to reapply just a little bit.

Overall rating: ★★★★★ 5/5

These are very useful and they last for a long amount of time. You don't have to use it just as an eyeliner; you could use it as an eyeshadow, use it to brighten up your face, or apply it to your lips. As for my thoughts on the store, I like Angelic Rain. They give you free shipping, regardless of where you are, and the prices are relatively low. They've got a decent amount of items to buy as well. I haven't bought any circle lenses from them, but I'm thinking about it. Their circle lenses are at a good price, imo.

{REVIEW} Lush - BB Seaweed Facial Mask

First review post, huh~? Well, let's start!

I really love this product. It's just great. I went to the mall and walked into Lush just expecting to get some soaps and possibly a shampoo, but instead I ended up reading all the descriptions for the facial masks they had out and picked up this baby! It might not look like it would hold a lot, but so far I've used it three times and still have over half the pot left.

This mask is very easy to apply and doesn't feel bad on your skin at all. You're not supposed to leave it on for more than 10 minutes as it dries up and apparently that's not good. So on to pros and cons!

★ leaves skin feeling very soft and smooth
★ also leaves skin with a nice slight glow
★ easy to apply
★ doesn't smell bad

★ can be hard to wash off
★ clogs sink
★ there are seaweed chunks that I feel are just in there for show. They don't really stick to your skin (so it seems like they don't do much), and those chunks are the main reason why it can clog the sink.

My rating: ★★★★☆ 4/5
