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).

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

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.

Back at the beginning of the year, I received a little package of goodies. Inside, was this brand spanking new cleanser for me to try out.

Seeing as we are getting close to the end of the year…I thought it was about time I got around to writing about it!

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.

Seoul…My parental units Motherland…

Ahnyoung from Seoul. While I was trying to keep my calm on the plane, I figured I would type up a post. So this should post while I’m getting my bag…(actually this post goes up when I tried sleeping and woke up early -__-

Anyway, a few people asked, so here it is. I’m only in Korea for a tiny bit over a week.

My goodness! Such a waste of money!!

Yeah, I would say that seeing as I still have osap debt. However, with everything this year, I deserved it. In addition, the tickets were only $440 taxes in.

Wow! Plane must be crap!

In all seriousness, after my disastrous trip with United Air (or was it American Airline?), I didn’t have much hope. But boy have things changed a lot in 4 years.

I am on Deltas flight schedule, and dang…aside from the fact that the layovers are annoying, the fact that I got one annoying Ahjumah in my row, and there are 5 crying babies…I’m enjoying myself.

The layovers, though annoying (especially on my way back home) will be hard, but the airport is really nice/clean. And quiet.

I’m having a foot war with this ahjumah, as its just her and I in this row. She thinks she’s allowed to take up 2.5 seats…though rightfully we should only get one…it is common sense to share. But alas…she kept kicking me because she was in my area…and kept waking me up. So I gave up on napping. On the bright side? I shouldn’t be jet lagged then lol.

There are crying babies, but the parents are trying their best to keep them calm, and the poor parents have hard hardly any sleep. Plus one of them is a little over one, and she keeps waving to people xD how can we be annoyed with that?!

Plus…it is hard to see in the picture, but at least I get to listen to music (like seriously they have TLC Waterfalls! Loved that song in the late 90s), and I get to watch current movies! I was SUPER excited for How to Train Your Dragon. So cute. Definitely underated. I watched Dhoom 3 as well!

I also was having a bit of stomach issues, and motion sickness for the plane bus didn’t help. But the food has been pretty good. No really complaints other than bloating.

One thing that has been annoying is that I forgot my toothbrush, and this air+lack of sleep has been hell for my face. I have two massive gross pimples. So tempted to pop it, but going to run to nearest Watson’s or Olive and Young and buy the Nexcare Acne patches…let’s see how long I can hold out >_< (I didn't get to a stop as it was late and I was tired…)

So that is my plane update. If my phone is up and running faster, going to try and blog my train ride from Incheon Airport to Seoul using the All Stop Arex :) (actually change of plans…I'll post about my phone tomorrow :))

Hope it's a great mid week for y'all!

Well hello from DTW :)

So I’m waiting for my connecting flight for Seoul at the moment, but just wanted to say hi!

I should have posted my weekly Instagram update post, but it was just too Darn busy yesterday. In any case, I’m off to Seoul for a very mini getaway. Thankful for being able to snag the Delta deal :D

Anyway, I’m hoping to have data set up by Thursday, so hopefully will have mini updates if I can manage it on the phone, as I didn’t bring laptop or iPad w me. Kind of weird not to have them, but…less is more philosophy applies to this trip!

Okay, going to go check out the Sanrio store and check out Miss Kitty…the “girl”….lol
