Cosmetic.Jolse Haul ft. Etude House


Before I get started I just wanted to apologize (once again) for my lack of posts, I literally just graduated four days ago from high school (yeyyy) and it has really been pretty busy for the past legit month (not to mention my whole high school career). But now that I'm a high school graduate and a university student I can say I will probably have more freedom in updating now! Yehet! Haha I'm happy about graduating, but that is a whole other post.

This is my haul from cosmetic.jolse, which I ordered a month ago. Yeah it took a whole month to arrive. But that's my only complaint to be honest, cosmetic.jolse was having an amazing etude house sale and I got these at a good price and a pretty good amount of samples. I didn't purposely choose all etude house, it just happened, haha. I'm quite pleased with these products, and expect reviews soon! And lets get on with this!

Packaged quite well!
My samples- got about two per item I ordered plus a nose strip and oil blotting sheets. ^^~

Packaged so well once again!


Etude House Blotting Paper Pact

Etude House Dear My Darling Tint- Berry Red

Etude House Lovely Cookie Blush- Plum Mousse Cake

Etude House Cotton Puff- I legit bought this because it was cute and I feel bad for always stealing my mom's cotton pads ;-;

And yeah, that's it for this haul! I'll try not to be so much of a perfectionist and post more! ^^ I just want to say this was my first time shopping at cosmetic.jolse and honestly I was disappointed with the shipping service. It took a month to arrive and I had to go to my post office to retrieve my package. And also if I did not get a tracking number I would have been screwed. Let me add my package stayed in California for like three weeks, for a reason I do not know. I'm totally hating, I mean I know it wasn't exactly their fault, for once the package leaves South Korea it's out of their hands but I have just never had such bad experience in shipping from an actual non-ebay store so I was a little disappointed. They had 'okay' customer service, and I would recommend shopping there because of cheap prices, but just get a tracking number if you do. And yeah, that's all--till next time! <3


Bye-yeom!

☆ 6 Things That Made Me Happier!



These are just things that personally have affected and changed my life in a super, super positive way.
They're also in no particular order as well~
  1. Yoga: I started doing yoga within my Body Sculpting during my junior year of high school. I'm not currently a senior and I have been in the class for one and a half years. It really has had a positive impact on my life because first of all I am much much much MUCH more calm and definitely more tone and in shape. I honestly know that if I did not take the class I would be much fatter than I am now. I also would be 3x more unhealthy. Overall Body Sculpting is an all in one class of fitness, yoga, and health it's really amazing. I hope I can carry the stuff I learned in this class I enter college because I don't want no freshman 15 ;-;.
  2. K-pop: Haha yeah of course kpop. I got into kpop basically during the end of 8th grade in middle school. It was really crazy amazing when I found it because all my friends were Korean but NEVER talked about it to me. But I mean I understand, I'm a Nigerian teen who doesn't give a crap about Nigerian pop music lmao. So yeah what kpop has done for myself is too much to even put in one post. Let's just say it made life more happier and brighter.
  3. Infinite: I know Infinite goes into the kpop category but Infinite did something kpop itself didn't do. Infinite really just made me happy. Like sometimes you don't know why certain things make you happy, you just know it does. And Infinite is one of those things. During my sophomore junior year I was quite depressed. Like legitimately depressed. It wasn't until I discovered Infinite when I felt happier, and just happy living in general. Infinite made me laugh when nothing else did, watching Sesame Player with them is really a fond memory of mine and I even though I don't talk about Infinite that much I truly do love them and they'll always have a place in my heart. I also really hope to meet them one day c: .
  4. K-dramas: The things I love the most about k-dramas is the female lead. Although it annoys me (and a lot of us) now I used to love the kind of lead that cute and innocent. The kind lead that had the worst shit happen to her but she still was like so calm and chill. I know...random, but that's a quality I've always strived for.
  5. First job: Even though I don't necessarily enjoy my job right now I do enjoy the money I get it. When I first got my paycheck and own card it was the best thing in the world because I could literally buy ANYTHING. 
  6. Tumblr: This site basically was my like home from freshman to junior year. Like I did so many stuff on this website that made me happy such a rant or edit and make gifs/photos. I still love tumblr, but just don't have a lot of time for it as of right now :(.
And that's it! What makes you happy? Comment down below, hehe!

[Review] Etude House Sunprise Natural Corrector SPF 42 PA++, Skinfood Black Sugar Foaming Scrub, The Face Shop Mini Pet Perfume Hand Cream- Baby Powder

Pros:
Natural looking packaging
Can be used as scrub and face wash at same time
Smells good (like lemonheads~)
Can be rubbed in hands to make beads less harsh
Foams up

Cons:
I feel like it doesn't deep clean

Doesn't do much besides exfoliate

Overall:
Overall this product isn't much to rave about. It's a good exfoliater and also smells really good as well. I honestly wouldn't use this by itself as a cleanser as it doesn't do a good job at deep cleansing or taking off all your makeup. But if you're looking for an exfoliating type of product I would recommend this!

Pros:
Cute packaging
Great for light skin tones
Apparently a base
Anti-wrinkling

Cons:
Not good for darker people (leaves white cast)
Feels like a sunscreen
Leaves dry patches

Overall:
I have to mix this product with my moisturizer to be able to even use it. It still also leaves my skin quite dry and it sucks when applying makeup because I have to put forward an effort to cover up the dryness as well. I honestly think this is a great product for people with lighter skintones but if you're darker like me STAY AWAY.
 
 
Pros:
Really cute!Easy to carry around
Lotion smells super good
Gel texture
When used on face doesn't cause breakouts

Cons:
A little extra steps to close
Not much bad things, ahah!

Overall:
Overall I really liked this lotion, especially the container. It's one of those products I bought mainly because of the packaging. The packaging obviously can be used again and it's quite convenient. One thing I would I have to advise is that if you do put another cream inside make sure it is quite think because the container can get quite messy.

[K-pop Corner] ☆ Lee Michelle- Without You Review


Hi guys, two post in day? Ayeee. Anways I'm here now with another kpop post! You guys seemed to really love my last one with BTS so I'm glad to be doing another one. Today I'm going to be talking about Michelle Lee's new MV. I know I'm late with this, but I honestly don't care. I'm just glad I finally got around watching this MV because it's literally one of the most powerful MVs I have ever watched in my life.

Initial Thoughts:
When I first watched the teaser I was honestly being a little ignorant. I was like why is the little girl making such ugly faces and stuff like that, but despite my initial thoughts I proceeded to watch the full MV anyways. It's starts off with a little mixed girl with beautiful (may I say BEAUTIFUL hair) who's looking at a painting of people of different races and colors. And all of a sudden she starts to run. What from? You'll have to watch the video. But at that point I knew what it was going to be about. It was going to be about Michelle Lee's struggle growing up as a mixed child in South Korea. And also may I add, I somewhat expected Michelle could sing but GUYS THIS GIRL CAN SING. Like dang!

Outcome of MV
I managed to miraculously hold in my tears the first time of watching the MV, but after watching other reactions and watching the MV several more times I couldn't help but cry. Not the omg this is sad cry, but the kind of crying of sympathy and empathy. Yes I said it, empathy. I cried just as much because for empathy of this video as much as did sympathy. I'll explain why later. Anyways the MV was absolutely beautiful, stunningly raw and beautiful. It captured her emotions extremely well and delivered what it had to deliver. I'm honestly happy that Michelle isn't with YG and joined a better company. I honestly think YG couldn't have delivered the MV as good as DIMA Ent. They literally did a perfect job. 

Thoughts/Outlook of MV
Once again the MV was absolutely beautiful and stunning. My heart honestly ached every single time I watched it. The MV did an amazing job showing the struggle Lee Michelle faced growing up in South Korea. I can't even imagine what she went through as a child. The MV, guys I can't even say this enough. But I honestly do not know how the heck they managed to put so much in seven minutes of a MV. They put so much, I feel like I know her whole childhood. It was that powerful. Not only does the video talk about her struggled of a black korean, it also told me something I that I think no one should ever forget, something that everything should know. You're beautiful without anyone. You don't need anyone to make you feel beautiful or make you feel meaningful. All you need is yourself. This kind of ties in with my previous post about self-confidence. And I can't emphasize this enough. You don't need anyone to make you feel beautiful or meaningful. You can be beautiful by yourself. And that's where what I meant by 'empathy' comes in. I think it's targeted for two types of audiences. People with Michelle's situation and people who struggle with low self-esteem. I know what it feels like and this music video made me realize that 'Yes, I am beautiful without anyone. I don't need anyone to make me feel beautiful.'

Will I buy the album?
Yes, I definitely might buy it. Is there one actually, haha? If there is one, I might even buy it over APINK's new album, because this is something you buy and invest in. Just wow guys you don't understand how much my heart aches because of this video. If you haven't watched it please go watch it. Because it should be an eye-opener for some people. I think anyone who struggles with self-confidence should watch it. And that's it for today!

Bye-yeom!

[Heart to Heart] ☆ Self Confidence

Hello guys, I hope you guys have enjoyed your Spring Break or are currently enjoying your Spring Break like me! I'm happy I can finally start my "Heart to Heart" series with you all. I'm sure many of you know what "Heart to Heart" is, but in case you don't I'll go ahead and tell you what it is. "Heart to Heart", or atleast my "Heart to Heart" is going to be overall personal topics that I will go deep depth into, and I will be using these "Heart to Heart" topics to help me get closer my followers and viewers like you guys! So with out further ado, let's go!
Before I get started I want you guys to know that I'm not perfect, nor am I calling my self perfect. I've struggled with low self-esteem for many, many years. These past 7-10 years of life have truly been a roller coaster for me. The honest thing about this whole situation is that I didn't realize how bad it was until the end of my junior year. And right now I'm a senior. I just want to share my story, and tell you guys how I got over my self-esteem issues. And once again I want you guys that I'm still growing. I'm only eighteen years old, and in all honesty I still don't know much about my self at all, haha. 
This next segment you see is literally going to be my life story. I'm not even joking, I kind of went overboard. You don't really need to read it, because it's not really the main point of this post. Just skip to MAIN POINT, to get to get to the main point, aha.

Elementary School: 
I moved from Bronx, New York to Georgia when I was about eight years. I moved with both of my parents and younger brother. Let me just say that it might be because of my age, but prior to moving to Georgia I don't really remember much. I just remember that when moving to Georgia I was super excited, because I absolutely hated New York and moving down South was something new and exciting. And I'm the type of person who loves change. Anyways when I moved down here to Georgia and started 3rd grade I was bullied. I was bullied by this girl named Megan for having a wide forehead and bigger than average lips. In all honestly I don't think it bothered me as much as you would think it would, but I remember coming home and telling my mom all that happened. But yeah, I just wanted to throw that out there. My parents fought a lot, and I mean a lot. My dad scared me. It probably effected more than I wanted to during elementary school than I wanted it to. The rest of elementary school was better, I had my crushes, my friends, ex-friends and yeah. Yay elementary school, haha.
Middle School:
Middle school was pretty much the same. I didn't talk to anyone, I was quite shy, had a teeth gap (which I don't have now thanks to braces) , etc. Emphasizing more on "I didn't talk to anyone", I really didn't. I had my share fair of galfriends, but was always known as the girl who didn't say much. People would ALWAYS ask me "Why don't you ever talk?". And to be honest, I really don't remember what I answered with everytime. I think I just laughed. My parents still fought, my dad still scared me, but I learned to cope. I was a big girl now. I think life started to get a little better in 7th grade. I met a friend named Jackie and also another named Jinhee. Tthey were both Korean. After meeting them I started hanging out with the Koreans. Despite the different cultures, I finally felt like I fit and actually had friends. This trend continued into eight grade. 
High School:
This is honestly when a lot of emotional and mental stuff started happening. First of all let me tell you that I currently attend a charter high school, and am currently a senior (thank God). But just in case you don't know a charter school is a school targeted towards AP and accelerated classes. Getting straight to the point, my first year of high school was pure hell. It was honestly hell, and not something I would never want to experience again. Although I got straight As in middle school I had never taken one accelerated/probe class so coming to this school was not my cup of tea. I didn't want to come to this school once I realized what I had gotten myself into, but my parents (dad specifically) wouldn't let me leave. I barely passed all my classes and felt like complete shit. I terribly missed all my middle school friends. Because of my horrible freshman year, I knew I had to step up my game sophomore year. And that's what I did, my GPA rose over half a point. But it still wasn't good enough. Sophomore year I still cried alot, and I was legitimately depressed. My mom kept telling me to come out of my room and to just stop it. I didn't believe her, but looking back I honestly was a mess. Junior year was better I met a freshman named Vynnie, and she is honestly the best person in my life. She's always so bright, positive, and uplifting. I could never ask for a better friend than here, ever. Korean dramas and kpop honestly helped me a lot during this time period. In all honestly if I wasn't into kdramas and kpop I think I would ended up completely suicidal. Junior year wasn't the best, but it was when I realized a lot of things and discovered something about my self I never knew. Junior year was when I finally let go the anger I had about coming to this nightmarish high school. I completely just let it go. I let go all the opportunities I would've at my home high school. I JUST LET IT ALL GO. 
MAIN POINT: 
Towards the end of my junior year something happened, that honestly has made me the person I am today and is basically the whole point of this post. It's how I gained my self-confidence. After getting backstabbed and treated like shit by one of my best friends I was heart-broken. I never though of myself to become broken over a friend. I was never that type of person. But through this horrible experience I found myself. It might sound cheesy, but I FOUND MY SELF. I realized something about myself that I needed to change drastically and immediately: my reliance on people. I realized that my happiness solely came from others. I realized why I had been depressed basically all my life. If I felt like someone didn't like what I did or how I did something I would change it immediately. If someone looked at me a certain way or didn't give me their usual attention, I would legitly think there was something wrong with me that day. I would hate myself and wonder what I did wrong. I lived to please others, not myself. When I think about it, it's really funny. Because I never realized it. And the reason I'm telling you guys all this is because you might be doing it too. You might not have realized it, but you might be doing it! 

Anyways after this discovery I told myself that I would never let this happen again. I told myself that I come first before anyone, before ANYONE. Basically it was God, Me, Family, everything else. I would never make the same mistake of determining my self-worth based on other people. I would never do it again. If my friends don't like me, let them leave me. If someone doesn't like me the way I am, why should I give a shit? I'm not living my life for them, I'm living it for me. At the end of the day, they're not the ones who see what I go through. They're not the ones who have gotten me out of my lowest times. And if you wonder how I got through this horrible time period towards the end of junior year it was through God and quotes. Quotes sounds cray, but it's true. And this is the one that honestly helped me the most: "A lion doesn't lose sleep over the opinions of a sheep." This quote is just the best quote in the history of quotes, haha. It's true, and I don't even have to explain it.
Before I close this post I just want to give some tips to building yourself confidence. And if you've honestly read this entire post, wow you da the best~

1. Don't concern yourself with what other people think
2. Don't do something because you think other will like it, do it because YOU'LL like it
3. If someone tells you they don't like something you do, keep doing it. If it makes you happy, don't give a shit.
4. Make sure all the things you do, whether it be how you dress, the makeup you wear, the things you like, make sure you like it. Ask yourself do I like this about myself? Do I actually want this myself? DO THE THINGS YOU LIKE!
5. Be happy! Sounds cheesy, but this is honestly the main point of this entire post. Do things that make you happy. If something or someone doesn't make you happy get away from it or them. Be selfish, do things that benefit you solely.

And that's it! I love you all!
Bye-yeom!

Korean Product Haul ft. Skinfood, The Face Shop, Etude House, and more!

Hello guys  before you guys start slowly shaking your heads at my infrequent posts, I have an excuse! Hehe, so hah! Well anyways, my ipad chargers have been failing me for the past like three months! I've gone through legit like 8 atleast! And the problem is, I take my pictures with it! Ugh so yeah. From now I'll be sure to export them out the minute I take them to prevent this problem and to stop the delay of my posts. Anyways yeah let's get started with this haul!
So in this haul I bought Etude house Drawing Eye Brow Pencil (Gray-Brown), Etude House Sun prise Natural Corrector, Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner (500 ml), The Face Shop Mini Pet Perfume Hand Cream (Baby Powder), Skinfood Black Sugar Foam Scrub, and 10 cute bunny hair ties. All these stuff were bought on ebay this time and for the last time. Yeah in all honesty I wouldn't recommend doing what I did. Because first of all I only got like two samples and I ordered like six things. Compared to the samples w2beauty gives you or cosmetic-love I was really annoyed. Secondly, the shipping was so slow! Ugh, I don't even want to talk about it, but yeah never buying from ebay again.
Sunprise Natural Correcter SPF 42 PA++ and Etude House Drawing Brow Pencil

Sunprise Natural Correcter SPF 42 PA++

 
The Faceshop Mini Pet Perfume in 'Baby Powder'

 
Wonder Pore Freshner 500 ml

Wonder Pore 500 ml vs Wonder Pore 250 ml

 Skin Food Black Sugar Foam Scrub

And that it's for all the stuff I bought. Two of these were actually repurchases. I also I have a lot of good things to say for about half of them and not that great things to say for about two of them. So expect reviews soon! And thank you guys for your patience. You guys always make my days with your comments and I promise I'll make you guys happy and update all the time now!

My Everyday Makeup!


Hi guys! Today I decided to do my everyday makeup post, which is basically where I show you all the different makeup products I use daily. 
When I finished googling all of my products I realized my products really range from high-end to drugstore to korean. But overall my daily make-up products are quite nice! Which is why I use them everyday. I just wanted to throw out that I honestly only used to wear powder, fill my brows and thin eyeliner due to my extreme case of senioritis. But all of a sudden I just whammed out and started wearing thicker eyeliner, copperish eyeshadow, thick mascara, bolder lip color, and lip loss. So yeah now I will list the products I use.
Eyes:
Makeup Forever Extravagant Smoky Lash Mascara
E.L.F Liquid Eyeliner
Rare: but for inner ducks (Benefit's Watt's Up)

Lips:
Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss
Baby Lips in Cherry Me
NK Lipstick in Apricot (at first I thought it would just another horrible drugstore lipstick, but I'm honestly impressed! I can easily do gradientish lip with it, and comes off as bright red-orange.)

Eyebrows:
Etude House Drawing Brow Pencil (would not recommend though, lead breaks super easily. I currently now use an eyebrow pencil that I have no idea what brand it is.)

Face: 
Milani Multitasker Face Powder in Dark Tan 
(Insider: I honestly love this powder. You can just put it on and go, it has a light-medium amount of coverage and does a great job of evening out the skintone, it's also impossible for it to make you look cakey. I've been using it for over a year and I'm currently on my 5-7th pan~ Although the shade is lighter than my skintone it somehow works! Amazing product and totally recommend!)
And that's it for my Everyday makeup! I'm thinking of  doing  visual tutorial with pictures, but as of now I'm not really for it. But if you guys really want what I will probably do it! And that's it for now!

3DS XL White/Pink Review

Okay so the time has finally come to review this amazing gem~ My pink 3DS XL! I've been wanting this for months now and was so psyched when I went on Target.com and saw it on sale for almost 20 dollars cheaper! I was like YAAAS. Haha so I grabbed that thing the same day. In this post I will be reviewing just the 3DS and maybe have a short review of the Pokemon X as well. I haven't  been playing addictively lately due to school and other stuff, so a more in-depth review will come soon.

Okay so when I first opened up the box and saw the amazing pastel pinkness I was like "woww this is huge". I don't notice it as much right now but honestly it is huge! They don't say 90 percent bigger for no reason. I'm sure you can tell by now, but I also love the color of it as well! The color is amazing and so beautiful. I'm glad I made a trip to Target even thought the car broke down because it was worth it! The pink is hard to find online stores such as Target or Walmart so it was quite a bummer. But yes it was worth it, because once again the color is amazing.

This is a picture of it with the clear case on. The clear case is amazing as well. Easy to install and actually makes my 3DS quite lovely as well. The ebay user also included a screen protector and a cloth for cleaning the screen for only $4. Came within six days also~. You can find it here.
Quality: 
Look: 
Price: 
Overall: 
Overall I really love my 3DS XL, mainly because of the size and color. But the material doesn't seem to look the best as compared to the regular 3DS. I mean I trust them regarding the quality, but I'm just throwing this out there. But yeah if you like big consoles that are cutely colored or want to play the latest Animal Crossing or Harvest Moon game I recommend it!

[Review] Tony Moly Tomatox Magic White Massage Pack

Pros:
Cute cute packaging
Packaging reusable
Easy to use with applicator
Instant whitening effect
Nice smell, hehe

Cons:
Whitening goes away after a while
Burns a little tiny bit after a while
There's another lid when you open it up and it kinda makes a make

Overall:
Okay so I bought this product for about $15 dollars off w2beauty, but you can surely find it cheaper on ebay. Overall I'm obviously of darker complexion and can say there was indeed a whitening effect and I've seen a tremendous amount of reviews of people with paler complexions who say this definitely instantly whitened their faces. But almost all of them said the whitening was temporarily. I guess I have to agree, but I mean I'm pretty sure if you use this religiously you're face will definitely whiten. So yeah, I recommend this if you're ready to commit to this product. I'm honestly thinking of using this on my darker spots of my face, from acne scars to lighten them up. Hopefully that will go well!

Verdict: 4/5!☆☆☆☆

Hi guys! I'm pretty sure you've missed me, right? Hehe. I'm sorry being a senior with senioritis just makes you so freaking lazy. I feel like I never get a break because I don't come home from school till like five now because of stupid Georgia weather and I have work on Saturday and church Sunday haha. This and add my laziness equals like disaster. But don't worry, because I'll be updating frequently. I feel so sad when I don't update tbh haha. Even though I promised part II of Uljjang+Models I'm honestly thinking of doing a Heart to Heart next. How does that sound? Thank you all, and until next time!

[My Obsession] ☆ Models and Uljjang Part I

So do you ever just have a moment where you're just like: "Wow I've got a fetish". Well that was me this morning when I downloaded like 500 photos of the model and actor Ahn Jaehyun. Like I'm obsessed! And I realized that I'm not only obsessed with this attractive guy, but have a good amount of actors and uljjang that my eyes enjoy ogling at.

Okay before I go on I know many of you obviously know what a model is, but some of you might not know what an "uljjang" is. "Ulzzang" or more correctly "Uljjang" literally means "best face" in Korean. An Uljjang is a popular South Korean term literally meaning "best face" or "good-looking". Originally used as a slang term, this word in the English lexicon has evolved into describing a person that follows specific style of fashion. Now that was wiki's definition, but an Uljjang basically is a person who yes, does follow a specific style of fashion, but mainly is just a person who posts pictures of themselves online. This might sound shallow, but they do it because they are attractive or other people think so. This sounds even worse but most of Uljjang actually edit their faces and stuff. But despite all this I love uljjang because a lot are actually nice people and are naturally attractive. Uljjang looks and makeup used to be very popular in South Korea, and although South Korea has a very natural trend going on right now, they still implement the "gradient lip" and simple "eye-line" into their makeup today. Okay I didn't mean to go on and on about Uljjang, but I just wanted to give people who know nothing about them some info!

I really love models and uljjang because I think it's so admirable how much effort they put to look the way they do and how much time they probably take to take care of their bodies and faces. I know many of these models have natural beauty, but even if this is the case you still have to put effort to take of your body and make sure your skin is taken care of because you're being shown to thousands of people for goodness sake! I'm just going to show you guys my favorite models and uljjang. It'd be so freaking amazing if we shared the obsession with any of these models, because we could become besties~. And if you don't know any of these models/uljjang go check them out, because they're amazing to look at!


Ahn Jaehyun
Ahn Jaehyun is a South Korean model and actor. So when I first noticed this hottie I was ''wow he is so attractive". I first noticed him on 'A Love From Another Star' (which is a fantabulous k-drama btw) and was so shocked because he looked like a LIL' WOOBIN. Like I was like "OMG KIM WOOBIN'S BROTHER WHAT EVEN!". Yeah and I was wondering why I've never seen this guy before. I then start to take notice of him on tumblr and I'm like "oh it's lil' woobin again!". So I see his name in the tags as "Ahn Jaehyun", and I just know it is time. I searched him up so excited and stuff because I thought I would finally have a Kim Woobin my age, but nope! I found out that he's 26, two years younger than Kim Woobin. And I'm honestly still in shock. What shocked me the most is that I realized I've actually seen him several times before watching 'A Love From Another Star'! He was in K.Will's Please Don't MV and Sistar19's Not Gone Around Any Longer video as well. He was also apparently in the Korean show 'High Society' as well. So I actually have seen him earlier, but never paid attention to him, smh. Anyways he's my latest obsession and I love him to pieces even though he's older than all my biases. <3

Betty Adewole

Betty Adewole is a British model. Guys, I'm in love with this model. She literally like so perfect in the way she looks. If I could look like anyone in this world it would legit be her. She's Nigerian (like me!) and she is just so freaking pretty! I really love her eyes and nose, and like everything basically. She really has nice face porportions. But back to her eyes, I really love them because they're really "chic-like" and she has some aegyo-sal. I just love her she's so classy!


Francisco Lachowski
Even though google always has to help me spell his name, Francisco is a Brazilian fashion model. And may I say he is like the hottest guy ever? Although he's married and has a kid he's still got it. His child is even more attractive them him, haha. Anyways Francisco is always that guy I always saw on tumblr and always thought was attractive, but never did my research. But the day I did, was the greatest day ever--because he's so hot!


Kim Woobin
Can I just say baeeee????? Seriously Kim Woobin is bae. I don't care if he has a model girlfriend or if he's two years older than Ahn Jaehyun, he is bae! I love him so much, omg I sound like such a creepy fangirl. But seriously Kim Woobin is love. He's literally perfect. Like guys I couldn't say that about my other favorite models, but I can say it about Kim Woobin! He's a South Korean model and actor. And he's even better at acting than modeling and it makes me want to cry. I first saw him in White Christmas, but I didn't go cray about him till School 2013. School  2013 was amazing btw, and his acting and bromance in it with Lee Jongsuk was just like made me wanna die inside. That drama and he was amazing. Kim Woobin is also so freaking chill and nice to his fans. Although he looks kinda uptight and mean and oftens play the 'bad boy' in his dramas and movies he's seriously the nicest guy ever. I really want to watch his latest movie Friend 2 and was so mad when it was the day before I had the ACTs, so there was no way I could see bae! Hopefully I can see it soon when I find a link, ugh. Anyways yeah Kim Woobin is bae and will be bae forever. 


And yeah that's it for the model portion! Next is the uljjang portion, because I'm going out soon for Valentine's Day and guess what? I'm finally going to get a pink 3DS XL! Finally guys, I'm so excited. I hope you guys have a nice Valentine's Day and spend it with your significant other or family! Oh btw anytime you guys see brackets around a title that probably means it is going to be a series. For example [K-pop Corner] is a series which I will continue to add onto and do. And yeah that's it, bye guys!

Bye-yeom!

[K-pop Corner] ☆ BTS- Boy In Luv Review

Hi guys, I'm back with a review to one of my favorites kpop groups out there: BTS! This is something new I'm trying out, and something I feel like I'm really going to like~ If you read my previous k-pop post you'll under why I love this group so much. They're something I haven't seen in my five years of k-pop, basically since Big Bang. And Big Bang is amazing okay? Anyways they're amazing too and let's get on with the review!

Initial Thoughts
At the time I heard of Bangtan's comeback I was much into Got7 and spazzing about Youngjae, Jackson, and the rest of them. And personally I can't be hyped about two groups at once, it just doesn't work that way. So I honestly and sadly admit I really wasn't even as hyped up about this comeback as I usually am. I honestly had to force my self to listen to their first video teaser and thank God I did because that's when I began to become a 'lil excited. By the time I listened to the second teaser album preview and watched their MV teaser I was soOOOOOO EXCITEDDDD. Like no joke I was like hopping around like "ooooohhhhh!". Yeah it was kinda cray.

Outcome of MV
When the video started I was so hyped because Taehyung was freaking getting it! And I keep forgetting how deep his voice is! The people who really caught my attention were Jungkook, Taehyung, Jimin, Jin, J-hope, and Suga basically in that order. I don't want to spoil it that much if you haven't watched the video so I won't really elabaorate, plus I'm too lazy, aha.  But I do have to say that Suga's part was just like WOW. And overall all of them were really GETTING IT LMAO. Anyways Namjoon didn't really catch my attention that much to be honest. I felt like his presence wasn't really as hard as it usually is. The MV was really nice and, but I really thought it was kinda "wtf" when they kept treating the girl so roughly and then they suddenly just serenade her at the end???? But then after watching the reactions to the MV I totally under why they made the MV the way they did! :)

Thoughts/Outlook on the MV
Okay so what really made me like this MV were the LYRICS. The lyrics were on-screen so I knew what they were saying as the MV went on. And wow I realize that this is their first official MV where the lyrics are about actual "love". But the whole concept of the MV and lyrics are so freaking cute! It's basically about this "bad boy" who likes this girl but doesn't know how to tell her. He's wondering if he should take her on a date, write her a letter, etc, but really doesn't know what to do! So he's just really frustrated and since he's a "bad boy" he's taking to just kind of bullying her, haha. You remember when you were elementary school and that's what guys did? So that's why Jin and Suga were being such dicks to her at first. I honestly thought this MV was the cutest thing ever, despite the "bad boy" concept.

Will I buy the Album?
I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to buy the album, because I do! But I have two BTS albums already and guys they just debuted last year like. I feel so bad that I'm not buying other group and solo singer's albums that I really like. Like what if I meet them and don't have their album? What are they going to sign, my hand?? And plus I'd be too embarassed to not have their album too. Despite this, I'm definiely buying BTS's 1st full length album whenever that comes out! I also hope they do take of themselves, because apparently J-hope fainted during the shooting of the MV. I hope they don't push themselves too hard during promotions. :(

I'm currently waiting on my freaking E-bay stuff to arrive, but it's taking forever! But still, watch out for a haul hehe! Bye-yeom!

[Review] Etude House Drawing Eye Brow Pencil in Grey Brown

Yay two posts in one day~ Today I will be reviewing Etude House's Drawing Eye Brow Pencil in Grey Brown. I have to say I have been absoutely loving Etude House products because of the cute packaging and the fact that their products actually work and are quite affordable. Etude House's Wonder Pore Freshner is my holy grail toner and I can say that the eye brow pencil is also following suit! I got my in Grey Brown for it looks quite natural on a lot of people and even on my darker skin tone.


Pros: 
Easy to apply
Stays on ALL DAY (I have oily skin!)
Looks super natural
Really cheap ($4-6)
Includes a spooly brush
You can purchase refills
Sold almost everywhere on Ebay, Amazon, Kpoptown, W2Beauty, Cosmetic-Love, you name it
Cons:
Really cheaply made lol
Lead broke super easily
Since it is retractable you can't really sharpen it

The pros obviously outweighed the cons and I would recommend this product to EVERYONE out there who needs an eyebrow pencil that actually stays on and looks natural. I bought mine on W2Beauty but ordered another one recently off Ebay for $4.24. Now before and after pictures~


Before: Half eyebrows :(((
After:

 Okay as you can see I sadly have half eye brows like Sungyeol from Infinite (cries and shakes head). Yeah so I've always tried to have bangs as much as I could to hide my horrendous eyebrows. And can I also add that my eyebrows are quite uneven like what even. But this eyebrow pencil fixes all of it~ Because of this pencil my eyebrows are finally on point after like 17 years~ I honestly can't rave about this product enough it's literally just the best thing in my life right now guys haha. I'm pretty sure I won't be able to find a brow product as good as this in like forever. And yeah that's it! I usually do my eyebrows quite straight, modeling after the Korean straight brow, and actually learned how to do so through youtube users and stuff. My favorite tutorial was made by OnleeAmore. So if you need guidance just check her out~ Although I didn't wax my eyebrows like she did I basically do everything else she did! And that's it for now bye-yeom! <3
