Spring Break = more time to buy things

Okay, so I already heard from all the grad schools. And since I got rejected from one of them, I decided to reward myself for getting into the other six. (Yes, I applied to a lot of schools, I can't afford to not get in!)

Anyway, went to CVS and bought some Revlon stuff from their BOGOfree sale! I got the Revlon Colorstay Foundation with Softflex and also their Anti-Aging Primer thing just because I didn't know what else to get. To my dismay, I came back and checked reviews on and the primer received a 1.9 out of 5! wow. Apparently it smells horrible and made a lot of people break out. Since I have fairly acne-prone skin, I couldn't take the chance and returned it.

I also went to Target with some cousins that visited from Australia. We walked around for 4 hours.. and I had heels on! I shouldn't have done that because I was dying towards the end. From Target, I bought some Sonia Kashuk stuff: the angled liner brush, highlighter brush (looks like stippler), and the hidden agenda concealer. I was looking for a good, but inexpensive stippler.. and found that the Coastal Scents or the Sonia Kashuk one might be decent. I heard the CS one sheds a lot though so I just decided to get the Sonia Kashuk one since they were having a 10% off all products by Sonia Kashuk (which is not a lot but it's something). I also heard some good things on the Sonia Kashuk concealer and have been looking for a better one. I'm currently using Maybelline's coverstick for my red scars [more like broken capillaries from having busy hands when i had small pimples :( ]

We also stopped by Sephora in old town Pasadena. I didn't really find anything I really wanted.. except I was looking for Two-faced shadow insurance but sadly they don't carry Too Faced at that location! That's so weird.. perhaps there's less teenagers there? I always saw Too Faced as a brand for younger adults since it's designs are more girly and bright. Hmm.. oh well. Oh! I also was considering buying the Shu uemura 24k gold eye lash curler.. I tried it out and it was okay. It wasn't super amazing or anything (but maybe cause my eyelashes were already curled from getting ready) Plus I ordered a bunch of stuff from E.L.F. the other day, including an eyelash curler. I don't really need another one though.. I'm fine with my $ .50 US MixBox one from China. It works so well with my sparse Asian lashes.

Oh! I also bought some Biore pore strips and Self-heating mask. I've used these before and I really like how the self-heating mask feels. It really does heat up! Although I doubt it deep cleans the pores because I saw little difference from when I use my normal face cleanser. But I don't care cause it feels good anyway. I also just bought the pore strips because I had a coupon for buy $15 get $5 off. I usually prefer the pore strips from Pond's because they adhere stronger and are more effective in pulling out the clogged pores. But yeh I couldn't find it and I already spent a lot of time in CVS.. I figured I already put the bf through enough torture, waiting for me to buy makeup.

Also got Cetaphil from Costco!!! Yeah.. I bought a lot of stuff.. I better not spend any unnecessary monies for a longgggg time.

Anyway, this has been one long entry. Have a great day lovelies!

P.S. did you notice I put up a header image? it's drawn and photo-manipulated by yours truly. :)


  1. Hey! Just stumbled across your blog and was pretty shocked by how similar our purchases have been over the past couple of months. I just got the maybelline dream liquid mousse in natural beige (medium 2.5) and it's the best overall drugstore match I've ever had. I wear golden medium/buttered tan/olive medium depending on the time of year in Everyday Minerals. The second-best was maybelline dream matte mousse in medium 0 which unfortunately broke me out, and all the revlon colorstay foundations were too pink. Hope that helps in looking for foundation :-)

  2. hi sweet.

  3. Wow I can't believe you found the SK skunk brush...they call that one on makeupalley the "skunkicorn" becuase it is so impossible to find at most Targets. Enjoy hun!
