Neese ニーズ - Lip and Eyeshadow Cream

Hi there sweeties~ I'll be reviewing Neese Lip and Eyeshadow Cream, my first mini eyeshadow palette ever. (I got this from my friend in Japan back then (≧∇≦)/ for around 600 )
Actually I've never heard about this "Neese" brand before, or maybe this one is just sold in Japan only or whatsoever, I've never been there and as long as my trawl up around cosme *hwajangpum stores here, I've never seen any Neese brand too, does anyone know about this brand?

It comes with cute transparent plastic pouch with pullable cord fastener. And *oh my~~ I can't help myself handling this! 100% kawaii~ I'm loving the bulky-egg shaped-like packaging, so simple but cute.
got three container inside, white, purplish silver, and brown.

Time for swatch~
Purplish silver, Brown, White
It's creamy, got a bit thick consistency but quite easy to blend well with skin. Altough it is said to be eyeshadow and lip stain, it turns out to be full eyeshadow cream  for me. I couldn't imagine myself using this range of color as a lip stain ( ̄□ ̄; )

Used as eyeglow liner
What I love most is the shimmery things ^^, the purplish and whitey palettes are just perfect to be used as eye glow liner. It gives subtle pearl glossy glow, thanks to the shimmer and thick consistency <3
looks like Etude House eyeglow pencil, eh? 
Absolutely love this product, Does anyone know where can I find another Neese cosme products? I've been googling but couldn't find even a single clue! how annoying =(

Okay that would be all for now,
and my love rating is: 5 out of five~ ♥♥♥♥♥ absolutely loves the product!

If you curious about this I suggest you go on guide to cyworld link to test the program. This photo editing program really cute~absolute love love LOVE. This program allows you to style and frame your pictures too! the simple rounded frame is definitely my favorite <3

Simply drag your pictures to the lower section of the program. Select the pic, then click the number 1 orange icon on the upper part> start editing!
However, cyword / photo on korean photo editor is not the only program to edit your photoc. yeah, naver blog, if you have the account, they also have a program which allows you to edit pictures and they also providing you with a cute template collection.

Review: GARNIER-light eye roll on

Product explanation:
"Garnier first-ever roll-on to hydrate, cool & refresh tired-looking eyes.
Enriched with Caffeine, the roll-on is a handbag must-have, great for on-the-go women. The cooling moisturiser contains Caffeine and Pro-vitamin B5 for a bright eyed look!"
It is dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested.  Effectiveness can be seen:
- Immediate cooling effect to freshen up fatigue eye area
- In 14 days, skin is much brighter and radiant
- In 28 days, eye bags and dark circles reduced by 11-12% respectively.*
*Evaluation on 50 women with dark circles and eye bags, all skin types.

How to  use it:
1. Apply the roll tip below your eyes area in circular motion, from inner to outer corner of eyes, then give one stroke on eyelids, repeat this step about 10-15 times.
2. Do the same like step 1, but this time from outer corner of eyes to inner side.
3. tap gently with your finger.

What I say:
 I've been using this for more than 3 month already, and spent two tube of this product, hoping that it will help reduce my dark circle. My dark circle is really bad and bugged me alot T____T It can't be helped *sob. Using it twice a day (everyday) at morning and night and the result? you see it yourself. (taken after 3 months of using it)
Yes, nothing has changed. and my dark circle is still there =(`
I don't really recomend this product for those who really want to get rid of dark circle since is not giving me any of its promise. You may want to buy this since this roll-on is the cheapest eye remedy I've ever found and try it yourself for your own verdict.
The good things are the cooling effect it gaves, and the roll-on tip which is very good to use as massager.
I won't repurchase this anymore, two tubes is more than enough... I will try for Etude house good bye dark circle after this >.<~

My love rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♡ ♡ 3 out of 5.

Angeling Papercraft - ペーパークラ

Hello lovely readers, got some spare time? then you can try making this cute papercraft^^. You can place them on your desk, dressing table, or near your computer. It really adorable and the making process is really easy.
What is papercraft?
Papercraft (ペーパークラ) is a hobby where computer images are printed, cut into pieces, and glued into a 3-dimensional model.It's really popular in Japan.
How are they made?
The images are made by unfolding a 3D computer graphic into 2D using Pepakura, a program designed specifically for papercraft. These 3D images are either made by graphic softwares, or taken indirectly from the video game. A few models are hand drawn using trial and error. (taken from papercraftmuseum)

What you need:
- Glue
- Scissor and cutter
- Ruler
- Cutting mat
- and patience =D

First you have to print the pattern in A4 sized paper. It can be ordinary white paper ( suggested is more than 80gr paper), Matt printing paper, or any kind of paper you like. Be sure that the paper you choose is flexible enough to be fold. Here is the pattern for angeling papercraft (left click first to get actual size):
Next step:
- Cut all the 'outline' line (including wings and angel-ring, don't forget to make a hole for the angel-ring).
- Fold the 'dotted line' and form it like a boxes, glue the white part of the angeling body. and you're done with the body.
- Attach wing by simply glue it to the body.
- Last, tuck the angel-ring stick on the rear body. finished.

Happy trying, you can keep it for yourself or give it to your mates or friend, they will surely love it! for question feel free to ask me by comment. Thanks for reading~  Love you all♥

Ulzzang Photoshop Tutorial~Overall

Hello my readers^^ Do you know that nowadays ulzzang (얼짱) girl have become very popular and became celeb idol by only posting their pic on web? for those who wonder what ullzang is, it means "best face" in Korean. But actually most of their photo make a fool of us! Big eyes, small cute nose, Pinky small lips, and off course flawless skin that we always want!

Okay, then who the culprit behind it? it's Adobe Photoshop CS (newest is CS5). Most of korean ulzzangphotoshopped their pic. There's a lot of  'photo enhance' program like "cyworld" which is very popular in Korea, then "Photoscape" that just like Photoshop easier program.

Here I will give you simple 'overall' Adobe Photoshop editing to boost your cuteness and get an ulzzang look~ 


(This is NOT me-I am not awfully photoshopped my pic like his, lol. Pic credits to Deviantart)

What I done to this pic for obtain flawless skin:
- Image> adjustment> levels. Adjust Level, make it lighter.
- Image> adjustment> curves. Set the upper line to be slightly higher to get fairer skin.
- Image> adjustment> Color balance. Adjust the color balance by dragging the button untill you get the tones you want. Since there is no fixed amount of how much do we have to control them. Just analyze your pic, if it got a lot of yellow overbalance, then decrease the yellow amount by dragging the "yellow-green" button closer to green.
-After you get the perfect tone. Start with 'dodge and burn' tools. Dodge darker parts like undereye circles to make it lighter, and burn the eyeball, upper eye line, and any area you want to define them.

Large dolly eyes, give it fake eyelashes, and smaller nose:
-Filter> liquify. use bloat tool to eyeball to make it larger and get a dolly eyes. Use pucker tool to make the nose look smaller.

and Taraaaa~ you'll get ullzang look photo without touching a make-up^^
Happy trying and if you have any question you can post a comment here.
-Fake eyelases is taken from another picture that got nice eyelashes. (I'll explain it in my future post)

Carrot Facial Mask

Got problem with oily skin? Okaaay, then you don't need to be worry anymore =D you can try this mask. It's a good source of nutrient and vitamin for skin.Carrot is rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, follacin, potassium, and Beta-carotene. As there is no limited way to make your own mask, you can try mixing it with honey, olive oil, lemon, aloe vera, or any natural substance that suits your skin.

Addidional : What is your skin type?
♥ Oily: add a few drops of lemon juice
♥ Dry: olive oil or honey will moisturize your skin
♥ Sensitive: Aloe vera soothing effect will suits you best!
♥ Acne prone: try honey and you will love it! it's antibacterial and diminish acne

- one or two carrot
- additional substance that suits your skin (choose from above)
- Juicer
- Sieve, a spoon, a glass, and a bowl.

Now I'll tell you step by step of making carrot facial mask. You may find people usually cook the carrot first to make it tender. But I don't really like it since cooking the carrot may omit its nutrient content. I'm start with juice the carrot first and there is a bonus at end of the making process ~♥
1. Peel the carrot, put in the juicer. add half glass of water and juice it.
2. Pour juice over the sieve and you will get a carrort pulp like in my first picture.
3. Mash it with spoon until all the juice out of carrots. You can put the water juice in a glass.
4. Now put the pulp in a bowl and add your favorite additional substance. Mix it well.
5. You can start appyling the pulp on your face 
don't forget to put the separated juice in a refrigerator and add sweetener ^^~

Wait for 10-15 minutes then rinse well with water. You can use a toner and moisturizer afterwards.
Now you can enjoy your fresh skin +  a glass of healthy carrot juice♥

Happy trying dear readers =D

Minimalis Make up for Everyday

♔Gingko BB cream -The Skin Food
♔La tulipe loose powder
♔Black bean eyeshadow in black-brown - The Skin Food

♔Fresh cherry tint in pink - Etude House
♔Color me nude lip concealer - Etude House

I really love nude make up, most of korean make up artist said that "the less for more" and it really make up my mind about how I see make up for face. off course it's different for each purpose ( those heavy smokey eyes or else)

And this time a give it a go, okay... before and after pic doesn't give a great difference. but it really helps me to 'coloring' on some part of my face like eyebrows and lips. also to covering some blemishes. Enhancing what good on your face to become better is the key^^  okay, I missed the part for things like eyeliner and mascara or so on, but I'll try that on later. See ya soon ;3

Review: La Tulipe Acne Loose Powder-Natural shade

And here is the ingredients and product description written on the side of packaging:

Well, I got a skincare routine from my beauty care clinic and my dermatologist warn me not to wear any kind of compact powder, so for almost ten years! I've never been using anykind of powder on my face. but loose powder is not strictly forbidden ( even though I am NOT reccomended to use any powder), so I think it's okay for me to use this. I got interested with loose powder only for oil control purpose, nothing else. and after I tried it, it really works! =D I started to love loose powder. It comes with a handy powder puff. Use time is only when I have to go somewhere after appyling bb cream.

Actually I chose this because this is the series for acne prone skin. I'm afraid that common loose powder will give me breakouts. Looking at the ingredients assure me that this one will suits me (Salicylic acid, sulfur, Terpinen)

Here is the shade:

It blends soooooo nicely with my skin. you can't even tell where the skin area got powdered, can you? xD~ and it looks natural on my face.

Netto: 25 gram, so plentiful. I can use this for more than a year I think.
Oil control: very good! I don't have any problem with oil now =D
Cons: fragranced! well I didn't notice that this powder is fragranced untill I peek the ingredients.
Repurchase: maybe. let's see whether I'll find better replacement for this

Oil control:Photobucket

Okay, that would be it ^^/

Review: The Skin Food Gingko Green BB Cream-Shade 1

I did not edit my cheeks skin and tone to give you real impression. I finish it with dabbing 'very' little amount of loose powder from Latulipe. Taken under daylight:

Product Description: This product is formulated with gingko and green tea extract which are full of beauty enhancing ingredients like lecithin and Vitamin B to moisturize and nourish the skin. This is a multifunction skincare product for both skin correction and skin protection.

At first I'm torn between choosing gingko BB cream or Aloe BB cream. Both are having a nice review and I'm eager to try it. I'm ended up by buying both of them. hehe... But for everyday use I choose gingko BB cream because it has Vitamin B and lecithin to maintain my skin. I've tried this product for almost 3 weeks, put it up only when I have to go out somewhere (not everyday). and it gives me no breakouts. oh okay I got two, but I'm quite sure gingko BB cream is not the culprit^^. It also smeels good too, like a scent from freshly cut grass.

compared to aloe: gingko has no sunscreen, but I think this is the nice part because I'm rarely exposured by a direct sunlight even though I have to go outside. The shade color #1 is perfectly the same with aloe. The thickness is also similar. It is said that gingko is greasier than Aloe? absolutely not. I think both are just the same. but gingko gives you a lil more dewy finish, dewy thingie doesn't always means to be greasy, rite?

Oil control: medium, but it you finish it off by dabbing some loose powder it will gives you oil-free face for 6-8 hours. ( depending on your skin type too)

Coverage: medium, sheer.

Overall rating: ★★★★★ 5 out of 5 stars! ♥ and repurchase for sure!
