Benefit Lollitint Review and Swatch


it's a very small sample, the brush applicator is kinda like nail polish


very light and sheer


Left: with 3 layers on         Right : with one layer on



I find it very interesting at first especially the application then again after 5-10 minutes when I licked my lips it feels weird like it doesn't have any chemical taste or smell to it it's just the texture/aftertaste I feel like I need to spit it out and get rid of the product on my lips..after that the product still did and left some tint color my lips it just looks natural that's all. Overall 1 out of 5 stars it's nice to play around with it that's it.I don't recommend it and definitely won't be buying a full size product! so sad! :/

Memebox I'm lipstick Lure Red Edition Review & swatch




Got a subtle floral scent, it doesn't have any chemical taste but you know the smell when you open a brand new thing its kinda like that haha
Very creamy,hydrating,long lasting and pigmented!


same size as the first line on my lil finger haha



with one layer on  (natural sunlight)


with 3 layers on (natural sunlight) so as you can see it's very buildable! And I think it would suit all skintones.


Even though the color transfers and there's like a tiny amount here I love it! Overall 5 out of 5 stars!

Signal Korean Tv series Review

Plot (source: asianwiki)

Hae-Young (Lee Je-Hoon) works as a criminal profiler and is also a police lieutenant. Even though he is a cop, he doesn't trust cops due to his own past experience. Back in 2000, when Hae-Young was in elementary school, his classmate Yoon-Jung was kidnapped and later found dead. Hae-Young saw a woman taking Yoon-Jung from school that day, but the police announced that the suspect was a man. Hae-Young even went to the police station and told the police officers that he saw the kidnapper and she was a woman. The police officers though didn't pay attention to him. The killer was never caught and her case remains unsolved to this day.

Hae-Young meets a reporter at a cafe to reveal bombshells about a celebrity scandal. Meanwhile, veteran detective Soo-Hyun (Kim Hye-Soo) is at the cafe staking out the meeting, unaware that Hae-Young is a cop. She arrests Soo-Hyun for stalking celebrities. While leaving the police station (the same police station he went to as a kid), Hae-Young hears someone talking to him. He looks around to find a walkie-talkie. The man who is talking to Hae-Young is Detective Jae-Han (Cho Jin-Woong). The detective though is from the year 2000 and he is investigating the disappearance of Hae-Young's elementary school classmate. Hae-Young and Detective Jae-Han begin to communicate via the walkie-talkie.


My thoughts:

I like the concept of this show it made me wonder how will it all end and if they can really change people's destiny. This unexplainable phenomena was crazy to begin with combined with the crime fighting and cold case squad this show was awesome!
Although there are some things that is a bit out of the time frame (technology wise) Lee Jae Han being able to use google mail in the year 2000. Google mail was I think introduce and made available to a few number of people in 2010 I remember signing up for that one and it took weeks to get in along with google+.


Spoiler alert!


There was a certain character who died after being sedated then lacerated in his wrist..I feel like even back then people can reverse that give him an antidote for whatever drug that was given to the victim(since they did a blood draw earlier),do a blood bag,disinfect then wrap the wrist.That's a fast quick solution and nobody needs to die.Oh and stab wound on the lower left quadrant of the abdomen there's no major organ there yosquad yes but with a certain amount of pressure,call an ambulance and get treated quickly you'll live but I guess they just want it to be overly dramatic Oh well...


The ending was still bittersweet will they be able to see him? Or will they be too late? I was left quite hangin in the moment there haha Overall 4.5 out of 5 stars so many things changed yet the 3 of them remembered.. what exactly are the rules of this aren't exactly explained.As strange as this show sounds it was thrilling and fun to watch especially solving a case and profiling. They are legit #squadgoals haha

Armchair BEA: Intro and Aesthetics (Day 1 & 2)

For those of you who doesn't know about Armchair BEA If you're a book blogger who can't attend Book Expo America and/or BookCon in Chicago this May, you don't have to miss all the fun - this virtual convention is the place to be!

DAY 1

Hello! my name is Kim ^_^

Sorry for the late post I'm glad I followed ABEA on instagram as I almost forgot about it ugh senior moments! anyway, I'm a book blogger for five years now but there was a time I didn't post as much on my first blog which I created way back June 2011 (some of you might recognize it if you've been following me long enough) I first participated in ABEA last May 2013 and then life happens haha!

One of my Favorite book is Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman and I highly recommend it!he's a LEGEND!  so epic! the way he describe things,scenarios and people are so fine,funny and clever. So I guess it's safe for me to say I love fiction a lot! especially fantasy and then mystery mostly because of the adventures aspect of it unravelling things and such.

A book blogger I recommend you checkout is Cassandra from Book & Movie Dimension she posts very thorough reviews and to be honest the only book blogger that I know of that's still active after all these years!

Looking at the ABEA Topic line up I'm mostly looking forward to DAY 3 since I'd like to catch up with you guys and as much as I'd like to say DAY 1 I can't since I already missed it haha!

That one song that reflects my bookshelf right now would be Carmina Burana :))

I usually arrange my books by genre/category or like for certain events like february-valentines day or like October- November : Horror (sorry no shelfie maybe next time? follow me I hope you stick around ;)

The book I'm most excited about on my TBR would be my comics if you saw my previous comic haul I went a bit cray pwahaha! I guess the most intimidating would be my entire TBR itself I need to figure out how to read them fast asap!

The most interesting thing I learned through my reading this year so far is about Audrey Munson the first supermodel in the USA a.k.a Miss Manhattan you can see her everywhere in NYC as a statue in bronze,gold,stone all sorts of artform!

Now if I could have lunch with any characters of my choosing that would be Tyrion,Arya and Daenerys so they could all take a lil break from westeros haha! Arya could teach us how to sword fight while Tyrion speaks some random trivia or like play a drinking game and maybe Daenerys could also teach us a thing or two about valyrian language as the two could use it after our lil lunch hangout also dragons yas! :))


I sometimes judge the book by their cover (Marketing Strategy 101:)) due to their visual appeal and overall impact I guess since that's the first thing most of us notice. Before I don't really care bout the exterior although it's always nice if the cover embodies what the book is all about then it would be easier to decipher. I feel like if I choose to coordinate like matching covers in that sort of edition for every single book I own I'd be broke so I dropped that idea long ago unless I find some affordable alternative.

As a book blogger I don't think this blog got a certain "brand/ing"yet as I like to experiment a lot with the flow and content I put in here so yeah as for customization I like to do my own CSS before but right now I like basic things,simple and minimal.Always beautiful and classic in my eyes at least haha!

Mini-Sized Slowganic Cleanser : Lemon | Skincare Review



RE:CIPE Slowganic Cleanser is your one-step all-in-one skincare and deep cleanser made from 98% natural ingredients. This handmade cleanser effectively removes heavy makeup, accumulated dust and oil, and deep-seated bacteria that clogs the pores, and now it comes conveniently in mini sizes! It has an advanced formulation of premium herbal oils that works in perfect synergy to help the skin naturally get rid of impurities while also nourishing the skin layers for a better and healthier skin condition.

Slowganic Cleanser in Lemon whitens the skin naturally by providing gentle exfoliation to get rid of dead skin cells. It also aids in quicker skin cell regeneration to improve skin complexion and texture.


How to Use

Scoop an appropriate amount of the cleanser and gently massage all over the face for 2 to 3 minutes. Wait until the makeup fully melts. Wash off with lukewarm water.


Size: 10g

Bought at Memebox


My thoughts:
I bought a travel set from Memebox and that kit included this lil cleanser sample.It looks like cottage cheese, bouncy and soft very interesting texture and I like the lid to close this pack it works! Definitely smells lemony ! I only need a small size to cleanse my entire face and use my facial brush. it last for 11-12 months the expiration date was a bit small to read haha anyway, it's very handy and good to have and perfect for travel since it's easily disposable too.

I didn't notice any immediate effect like brightening since it is lemon except just a clean and a lil bit smoother face just like what the product described mayhaps when I use this product for a very long time I might be able to see some improvements with my skin complexion...Overall 3.8 out of 5 stars it's a good product worth to try!

Free Comic Book Day 2016 (FCBD)


                                       

I like free comic book day it exposes me to a lot of things,people and places.The first store I visited gave away 10 pieces last year but due to large crowd and high demand this event draws in they had to limit it to 6 pieces this year they did some random raffle draws all throughout the day I didn't win any free poster this time around but I did manage to get a lot of fun stuff. Lots of kids and some cosplayers.Watch the video above to see what I got ^_^

The second store I went to they're doing some card games & karaoke. Not a lot of people compare to the first one (approximately 30 people inside when I got there) only a few free comics remaining mostly previews mayhaps a lot of people visited earlier in the morning anyway, they have a lot of pop figures,board and card games.I got some comics over there as well that I didn't see in the first one and they're a bit more on the pricier side.I noticed they a more organized/sorted collection (tabs all over) and surprisingly a much larger space it was my first time there.

Overall experience this is my kind of fun scavenger kind of madness. I love buying affordable comics,supporting book shops and getting freebies(who doesn't right?)

Visit Free Comic Book Day Website for more info!

Did you participate this year? tell me in the comment section below what you got.
