ETUDE HOUSE: Rosy Tint Lips No.7 Tea Rose Review


Hi loves~ I just got back into the uni routine :( and I believe it’s been too long since I’ve done a post! I’m currently deciding whether I should go and make ramen or not….sigh, the decisions. I’ve been craving unhealthy foods so much lately…especially chocolate! I actually have a bag of m&ms with me while I write the rest of this post. 

Anywaaay, read more for my review on this cute little Etude House product~ I promise the rest of the post won’t be as weird :P

Time is an equal opportunity employer. Each human being has exactly the same number of hours and minutes every day. Rich people can’t buy more hours. Scientists can’t invent new minutes. And you can’t save time to spend it on another day. Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving. No matter how much time you’ve wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow.

THE FACESHOP: Rice Water Bright O2 Cleansing Foam Review


Hi loves! Before I get started on this post, I wanted to let you know what I’ve been up to the past few days. On Friday night I went to watch Cirque du Soleil TOTEM with my friend and brother and it was AMAZING. Definitely worth the money. On Saturday I had my friend’s 21st party which was great fun; my close friends and I stayed for a sleepover and the next morning we made pancakes together. We went to play mini golf around lunchtime, which was great fun :3 Lastly we ended the day by going to mall to have a little snack. Now it’s Monday and there’s a week before I get back to uni so this week will be my ‘study-week’ :( But overall, I’ve had a wonderful few days with no study whatsoever :D 

Now onto the actual content! This is a product I’ve been using for months that I liked so much I brought it with me to Europe and it’s the product I take whenever I go to sleepovers. It’s so handy and easy to use plus it’s great for people with sensitive skin as well. I got this for $37NZD which is quite decent and I still have a lot of product left after 8 months of using it :D

— Anonymous: Hi Melissa!Can you recommend a concealer that doesnt set into fine lines under the eyes?

Hello~ :)
I apologise in advance if I’m unable to answer your question well! ><

If you have fine lines under your eyes I would recommend light weight concealers over heavy ones. Also, I find stick concealers tend to accentuate my fine lines so I always go for liquids. I really like the Rimmel London Wake Me Up concealer, which is liquid and I find it doesn’t settle into my lines :) 

But to be honest I think most concealers will somewhat set into the fine lines under our eyes :( However, you can apply a primer beforehand! That way the primer will help your concealer stay and prevent it from creasing and settling into fine lines/wrinkles~ Also for me personally, I actually just use my Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly BB cream to conceal my eyes and I find that works really well. 

I’m sorry I can’t help you more on this! I do recommend the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer though :) If you do try it out, I hope it works for you! or you can try the primer technique with any concealers you currently have to see if that helps ^^ 

Melissa ♡
