Birthday Celebrations 2015!

Hey guys!

As you know, my birthday was on Monday and I thought that I’d share with you what I did on my birthday! I originally had made plans with people to do things during the day but they fell through and I just took the day however it came and I ended up having a good day 🙂

I woke up at around 6am by my brother excitedly saying happy birthday to me. It was really cute and it made me feel very happy right at the start of my day. I watched a few youtube videos before I started getting ready to do things. With the new MAC Magic of the Night collection being released in stores, I thought I might try my chances at getting Oh, Darling! and get to the MAC store at Westfield Marion at around 9am.

Here is my MOTD and part of my outfit haha:

I’m wearing MAC Evening Rendezvous for the first time!

When I was ready to leave, my step-dad asked if I’d like to go out for breakfast, which was super nice of him. We went to the Glenelg Pier Hotel for their buffet breakfast. They had a wide variety of food to choose from and it all looked pretty yummy. The only thing that they had missing was pancakes haha.

We got the kid’s size buffet breakfast because we didn’t think we would eat very much and the lady told us what we could have and it sounded fine to us. By the time that we were seated and ready to go get food, we’d forgotten what we were limited to haha. I think my food was within what she had told us anyway.

There was a really gorgeous view of Glenelg beach from the restaurant and my step dad took a few pictures of me in front of our view but because it was so bright, I was just a silhouette so I thought I’d just show you this one that I took after breakfast.

After breakfast, I went on the tram into the city because I’d planned on doing a little bit of birthday shopping! I was still half looking for MAC Oh Darling! at this point but I didn’t have my hopes up too high. I wasn’t really set on getting it before anyway so it would have been a real bonus if I had bought it.

Whilst looking around at all of the makeup in the department stores, I got myself my free birthday Boost Juice. I bought a Banana Buzz smoothie because I’d never tried it before and it was pretty yummy!

At David Jones, while looking for Oh Darling unsuccessfully, I picked up two products from theBalm that I’d been after, Mary-Lou Manizer and Cabana Boy blush. I was so excited to pick these two up because Mary-Lou is usually sold out at DJs but they’d just been restocked when I got there. I also went into Mecca Cosmetica in Myers and picked up Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Patina, which I had recently swatched and fell in love with. I’ve heard so many good things about all of these products and I cannot wait to try them all out.

While I was shopping, I received an email from Rouche Boutique saying that I’d won a competition and received $100 store credit, which was honestly so amazing. So a big big big thank you to Rouche Boutique! You guys know how much I love Rouche Boutique and it was the perfect present from one of my most favourite online stores. I am not sure what to get from them so if you have any suggestions, that’d be much appreciated. I’ll probably end up getting more of the Jeffree Star Velour Lipsticks haha.

For my lunch, I was tossing up between going to Grill’d for a falafel burger or to Zen House for my favourite meal SFC but because I go to Zen House regularly, I decided on Grill’d. Honestly, I kinda wish that I’d just gone to Zen House but the sweet potato chips at Grill’d made up for the fairly average burger. Zen House is a vegetarian yum cha restaurant and if you’re in Adelaide and are looking for a good meal, I would definitely recommend Zen House, they have so many good meals to choose from.

After lunch, I met up with my boyfriend and we went to Little Tokyo to get some daifuku. I’d never tried daifuku before, it is like mochi filled with ice cream. It is really delicious. Frankie got the matcha flavoured daifuku.

Then we went to St. Louis. I had my heart set on getting one of those really crazy dessert milkshakes that have become really popular online but they were only doing it for a short amount of time so I missed out BUT I ended up just getting a regular milkshake from there and it was really good. St. Louis is really underrated and I would definitely recommend going there to get dessert. I would especially recommend the Eton Mess 🙂

For dinner, I met up with my brother and my mum and we went to have bibimbap at Jin’s Bibimbar on Goodwood Rd. I really love this place because you can pick anything you want to go into your bibimbap and you can make it taste exactly how you like it. I was very eager to eat my meal and forgot to take a picture of it before I’d mixed it. Rookie error.
The above picture is not very attractive but it does show you what I put in my bibimbap. I chose tofu with white rice, cucumber, capsicum, bean sprouts, broccoli and carrot.

After that, I spent the rest of the night working on uni work!

Review: Etude House Give Me Chocolate!

image6

It has been a little while since I’ve posted on here, more than a week, and that’s not usual for me! I’ve been redecorating my room and its been very slow because of uni and just life in general but I’m here now and I have a review for you!

About a month ago, I saw a new collection from Etude House pop up and I just thought it was so cute and I had to look into it for myself. Food themed anything is alright by me so this was obviously going to be appealing to me. Chocolate themed eyeshadow duos.

There are three in this collection; Cherry Truffle, Salted Caramel and Cacao Fudge. I bought two of these duos.

Here is what they look like:

image1

They look like little chocolate bars and the packaging is what really sold me on this item. If I hadn’t used and enjoyed Etude House prior to finding these, I’d probably have been more cautious.

image2

The size of the actual product in the packaging is actually quite disappointing. Even though I was aware that it’d be small,  I was still a bit disappointed about the size of the product. Its about the size of my index finger.image3

Here’s the back of the packaging. I thought that this was so cute and a good reference for future chocolate eating justification haha.

image5

So the swatches are okay. None of the shadows are totally matte but that’s okay, it would be especially okay for the audience its aimed at because Korean beauty doesn’t tend to focus on crease work like western beauty does. The shades are gorgeous.

Its a pity that the gold isn’t really pigmented at all. I applied it to my eyelid with my finger because it was a real struggle to get anything done with a brush and it was still kinda mediocre. It might work better with a white base so I will eventually try this with NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk. The other shades are nice and blend easily.

I’m wearing the Cacao Fudge duo in these photos. I have the gold on the main portion of the lid and the brown on the outer corner and crease. I have a different highlight in the inner corner so don’t be fooled haha.

Anyway, I hope that you guys are having an awesome day!

Review: Rinishop, Tony Moly and Etude House!

Today I received my package from Rinishop! I ordered my little package on the 9th of June and it came on the 27th, which is pretty quick for free shipping from Korea 🙂

In the package I bought two items from Etude House, a brand I already am familiar with and love, and two items from Tony Moly, which is a brand I’ve only lusted over. So I was pretty excited to get this package!

1

This is what came inside the package from rinishop. Everything was very protected, to the point I needed scissors because I just could not open the bubble wrap and sticky tape. I got so many free samples! So crazy. The full size price for the Time Revolution Immortal Youth Cream is $60! I think that might be US price, so it would cost even more in Australia.

2

So here is what I ordered.

4

This is a Tony Moly Fruit Princess Lip Gloss. It has 7 grams of product. This product smells absolutely amazing. It smells just like these Japanese Peach gummies that I bought a couple of weeks ago. I am already considering buying more of them at some point. They aren’t very pigmented but for the scent, I think they’re worth picking up. This item was $6.67 US on rinishop.

5

This is a Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar. It is Grape flavoured and it smells so lovely. This has 2 grams of product and is extremely sheer. I don’t think it was meant to be marketed as a pigmented lip balm so if you are looking for that I wouldn’t recommend purchasing this. But it smells awesome. Again, like a grape flavoured lolly. This was $5.44 US on rinishop.

6

This is an Etude House Etoinette (pronounced et-wa-net) lipstick in shade POR202. I already own one from this collection and I love them. They’re quite sheer. Maybe the same sort of pigmentation as a Revlon Lip Butter or Mac Lustre finish. Despite the colour of the picture, this is a very neutral coral shade, you will be able to see that in the swatch picture at the bottom of this post. This was $10.85 US on rinishop.

7

This is a Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips Talk lipstick in the shade PK005. I’ve never owned a lipstick from this collection and I think it is very similar to the Etude House Minnie Mouse collection. This came damaged as you may be able to see in the picture. The top was a little bit smooshed into the cap and it was initially hard to move the lipstick but I fixed the tube and the lipstick is still okay so I don’t really mind. The packaging is gorgeous, you can’t really see in the photo but the packaging has an iridescent grape purple over the top. The pigmentation is a lot better in this lipstick but its more common for Korean brands to have a glossier or less pigmented coloured lip product as I’ve noticed that’s more of the trend in Korean beauty. This was $8.20 US from rinishop.

 

Here are the swatches:

8

L to R: Fruit Princess Lipgloss, Petite Bunny Gloss Bar, Etoinette Lipstick in POR202 and Dear My Blooming Lips in PK005

I would recommend buying from Rinishop also because they have slightly cheaper prices than Etude House does and they have more variety. I think Etude House stopped stocking the Etoinette collection, so you can still find it from shops like rinishop.
