Dear pinklemonincrystal: beauty recommendations [i say eyeko]

one of the most common questions I usually get is
"Do all Koreans have great skins?"

I always hope for better looks
so I always grab more masks, cleansers, mascaras, lipsticks and etc. etc.
one thing I can tell you is that
I don't know about skin but yes, all Koreans are VERY interested in taking good care of their skin. That's why many celebrities shine so beautifully on the red carpets or on the debut in screens even though we all have HD screens on television.

definitely we all should have pretty mind and thought
to reveal outer beauty as well
but who can resist more makeup products? :)

I was so excited when I finally received eyeko packages
(if you follow me @divalicious_m on twitter, then you already saw last week the items I've got: two lipsticks, one eyeliner but has two different colors on the edges, one lipgloss, and one nailpolish)
take a look here!

sorry that the colors aren't clearly shown here
but what I did is put on a green eyeliner lightly and smudge them with my white glitter eyeliner (kind of in a mix?)
i like mixing my glitter eyeliner with almost every colored eyeliners
because they always create beautiful combinations

don't forget the curling, mascara, and a little liner on the bottom too

you'll be able to see how i did my nails in upcoming posts
[should i paint them all and put blue cracking nails on some fingers?
should i paint them all and put on a glitter liner stickers on?]

as soon as i got these and were taking photos,
my mom took that fourth one
beautiful plum lipstick with her :)
i love sharing my makeups & clothes with my mom

the top one is the plum one i just talked about
and the bottom one is bright red

the top two is the liners
so i used the right one [can you tell?]
the bottom glossy one is lipgloss
it's a....darker pink shade?

when i put it alone using the lipbrush, the color wasn't that bright
and gave me the natural glossy lip
as if i had just put on a tint

so what I'll like to do next time is use the lipstick first and then
put on a lipgloss in the center to make it a plump look
fuller lips

or put on a concealer or a foundation slightly on the lips
and then put on a lipgloss (without brushing too much)
so i can see the exact , supposed to color

some of the other finds at the
I loved are:

cream with extra glow $15
i love the 3-in-1
[highlighter, moisturizer, and eye cream]
starting from the age turned 20s I learned that we need to start putting on eye cream
(I'm 21 by the way)

i love using highliter mixed with moisturizer mixed with foundation or base
to put on when I go out
but this seems like it's reducing my steps into easy application

I'll probably use this on my forehead and on my nose
to highlight them
and then on the eyes to brighten them up before I put on any heavy makeups

eyeko big eyes black tube mascara $15
i always fail at putting on fake eyelashes
[helpful tips anyone?]
so i always grab onto volume mascaras
which make the fuller eyelashes to look like you have bigger eyes
if more, doll-like even

line & shine duo colour pencil $7
last one seems to be my color
now i want violet one for that perfect party, evening look
and the black and white glitter ones
which are the basic and definitely must-haves
[told you about the white glitter mix with any colored eyeliner
and it creates pretty outlook right? :) ]

liptastik 3 for 2 set $20
the first and third are my colors :)
so pretty

Mood of the Day: [despite the rain] happy

EARRINGS Forever21

i thought rain would have stopped last night but i still met few drops when i was walking by

but whenever i was out, it seemed to stop for me [thank you]
so i went to eat some handmade burgers & shopping w/ my cousin

we ordered usual caramel macchiatos at atwosomeplace after
& no matter what the weather, I couldn't give up my sunnies of course
and took bunch of action snap photos (that's an application I downloaded)

today I applied "The Special Mask" from EviDens De Beaute
just about half an hour ago (it's 10:52 PM here)

remember this post?

It said to use it 10-15 minutes before cleansing so I did
it automatically felt ice cold like it said "icy wake-up" on the catalogue

it felt lifting, plumping definitely because of the cool factor
and after about little more 10 minutes I felt my face calming down
which was kind of a signal for me to cleanse them off

it left me with more brightened skin as it is a "special" mask of course :)
i loved that it was full of collagen, which my parents think is so important for "females" to achieve occasionally for good facial skin

I would recommend it using it once or twice a week when you are having that extra-tired-face-day? because the next day will surely look refreshed and clear

if you are interested,
you can order 50 ml of glass jar "The Special Mask" for $195
at a following link:


lutke t $79
solar dress $84
nomad scarf-spice $48
deep u tank $55
divine wrap $69
roman tee tri blend $40
skinny tank $55
ziva shirt $84

love the simplicity, light-weight, casual chic outfits


navy dot + swarovski crystals
metallic + hardware
black silk + swarovski crystals
leopard calfhair + crystals
tricolor + hardware

photographer: Andrew de Francesco

these special collars will make you stand out for the day look
& sparkle beautifully for the evening look both!!!
