Musical Friday with Outsider

Hi everyone :)

Currently in Korea, and having fun!

Today I wanted to share Outsider’s MV for Sohn (Hand). I actually liked the video for the making of the track, so I embedded that one. You can see the official MV which incorporates animation on the channel of his new company Assa Communication. Couldn’t find translations for this, so couldn’t link one, sorry! But maybe you will like the sound of the vocals?? (Ack…I tried sorry)

Venturing into Naminara

So, I woke up kinda late to get ready for the shuttle. Which is fine cause I did figure I would take the train. Anyway, today I spent time checking out Namiseom.

Now why would I want to go there? Especially if it nearly took me two hours to get there??

The nature aspect of it REALLY appealed to me. To be able to walk about…was just nice.

I went to Gapyeong Station, and walked to the Tourist Center. She said if I was only going to go to Namiseom (cause most people do more like Petite France), that I could run across to the bus area as it was about to come. The bus is the regular metro bus. The cheap one. You can take a taxi, or shuttle, but paying a buck to get there was fine with me.

Once there, you have to walk through the parking lot of the crowd of tour buses. Then you will see the Nariseom ticket place. If you show your passport, you get 2000won discount. So I showed her.

It says foreigner on it, so the people who check your ticket will notice and say hi whole asking where you are from, in English.

From there, you wait a short while for the ferry.

There isn’t a whole lot to do at Nariseom, but I rented a bike (3000won for 30minutes) and toured about. My favorite was actually sitting at the edges of the island. Just sitting and listening to the water.

If you go towards the middle, there are a bunch of restaurants, so you can grab a bite to eat. There is also a lady who is making red bean steamed buns.

Yes…that statue is doing…something…interesting….

Anyway, there really isn’t more to report on it…so I’ll leave it at that. I’m meeting my cousins family tomorrow at Myeongdong. Hoping it won’t be too insane, since my aunt has has a few accidents in the past year due to falling (damn stairs), and since she is older, she has had trouble recuperating. Nevertheless, I’m excited to see them both :)

Glitter liquid liners…

A little while back, one of my fav drugstore bands Annabelle Cosmetics, reshared a video on their Instagram feed. I then went right to work putting my liquid liner to use!

Here is the original video. Anyway check out the rest of her feed HERE. I love her liner skills :D

Anyway, basically she used the Annabelle Glitterama Liners to liner her eye, pat on an eyeshadow, then redefined with the glitter liner again.

So that got me thinking. My Marcelle Lux Metallic Liquid Liners were at their end of life AGES ago…but wanted to get in a few more uses before I said goodbye (as of the moment I believe they have been discontinued).

Glitter Liquid Liner

I took Ultraviolet and smeared it about the eyelid. I then applied Annabelle Cosmetics Pigment in ______ (yeah…I don’t remember what it was called) on top of the liquid liner while it was still tacky. Once it dried down a bit, I used the same pigment to blend out the edge (which doesn’t show as much in the picture :T). Slap on eyeliner and mascara…and TADA.

Basically I hadn’t thought of doing this. Using a glitter/liquid formula as an adhesive for the pigments. Love it. Simplicity is key now that I’m getting older. It is the only way I can even think of wanting to venture out into a different colour other than my typical gold and browns. I blame age, but really it is sheer laziness lol

Glitter Liquid Liner
It is a tad clumpy closer to the lash line, as I fiddled with it too much. But I still like how it turned out.

So what do I think?
I really liked this a lot during the few times we had really hot weather. I could come home and rinse the makeup off my skin, without having to feel like I was drying it out by washing it again in the evening. It doesn’t leave the skin feeling tight, which agrees with their point that it preserves the moisture barrier. The one thing it needed extra help with, was waterproof makeup. In the pictures u there, the remaining makeup, after rubbing the product on my hand for 20 seconds, was the waterproof stuff. Waterproof is generally stubborn, so I would resort to a double cleansing method.

On thing to note. I have a latex allergy, and thus my eyelids are quite gentle (they swell up if I use latex anything really :T). I assume because of that, when I use this product on my eyelids, I have a slightly minty sensation. It isn’t a burn, and it doesn’t hurt in any way, but thought I would note that as a heads up for those who might have a similiar type of reaction to latex on the eyelids in general.
