Tony Moly Delight Tony Tint (#1 Cherry Pink) VS. Nature Republic Real Gel Tint (#1 Red) | Makeup Review

I bought these products via koreadepart they have a lot of variety of different cosmetics/beauty products from all sorts of Korean brands and some clothing items as well at very reasonable prices. Although I mostly order korean cosmetics  from them because I don't really order clothes online due to size differences anyway, out of all the online retailers out there I think they're the most affordable one when it comes to cosmetics/beauty products and trustworthy so far the only problem I encountered with my order is when it's out of stock in which they quickly resolved,refunded what I paid for safely minus shipping fee for that certain product.

They often have sale events so if you're particularly into a certain brand their event calendar section would be very helpful,handy and good to know. As for shipping of course it depends where you are they have a fixed and tariff  cost zone also depending how much your final order weighs that would definitely greatly affect how much you pay in the end.

Now for the much awaited Lip tint review let's talk about the packaging first shall we?
as you can see from the picture below Nature Republic's very simple, cute due to its tiny size and seems more travel friendly than the Tony Moly one would you believe they're both 9ml quite shocking right? Tony Moly's slightly bigger and definitely a lot longer, also cute due to its heart decoration also the most top part of the wand is heart shaped. 

They're both very affordable by the way Nature Republic I got it for $3.38 (original price $3.98) while Tony Moly for $2.03 (original price $2.90). So for me it totally depends which brand you're totally into ,which of these cute packaging appeal to you more and which of these fit your budget. 

 Heart shape top part of Tony Moly Delight Tony Tint (#1 Cherry Pink)
Wand Difference:

Tony Moly Delight Tony Tint (#1 Cherry Pink) long wand and has that slightly  upward pointy tip



 Nature Republic Real Gel Tint (#1 Red)
short wand and has a more rounder tip
They both have soft texture,easy to apply and glides on smoothly.


Swatches: 
          1. Nature Republic 2. Tony Moly


They both kinda look the same from the picture above Tony Moly just a tiny bit watery than Nature Republic and when you smudge it now you can see both the color difference down below Nature Republic truly got that reddish tone while Tony Moly got that Pinkish tone you can actually use both of these as blushes as well if you like.



Natural lip color, Dry Lips



Both available in 3 colors:
Tony Moly Delight Tony tint is  (#1 Cherry Pink, #2 Red, #3 Orange Chacha)
 Nature Republic Real Gel Tint (#1 Red, #2 Pink, Orange)

They're both very vibrant, feel  the same and look really similar not that far away from each other that's why I decided to compare them eventhough I should haven't chosen cherry pink and should do red vs red in both product line well I haven't really seen nor read anything that compare both these products this way how they're so much alike so yeah. They both have hydrating formula but they don't last very long so you have to reapply frequently over time it would leave a wonderful natural looking lip stain, 

There you have it! I hope you find this product/lip tint review helpful.I love these products so much! it's actually my first time to try them and so excited to share it with you guys. I'd rate it 5 out of 5 stars! lovely product!

Tell me in the comment section below what you think have you tried any of these two before? if you haven't I hope you give it a shot!

My Thoughts:

At first I really have no intention of watching this show my first impression when it all started way back in the day was this show has a lot of sex in it haha! Years passed by and I dunno how it started for but there was a time of my life where I know I needed to heal and move on with my life and good thing this show is on Netflix so I gave it a go! I'm not instantaneously hooked but now since I'm old enough to understand what's going on the medical world I feel myself gravitating towards every single episode then I just can't stop! 
here's the original cast
This show helped me heal in so many levels! I can somewhat relate what they're all going through there's Meredith (Mere) Grey who is dark and twisty.Fell in love with Mcdreamy! although Alex can be such an A-hole he's really sweet and thoughtful at times,you can feel the trace of hurt/pain in his character whereas Izzy so cheerful and bright as to Sweet ol George O'Mally! Yang definitely reminds me of my rivals and friends at school way back so as Burke who always seems serious. Richard Weber I still can't imagine the rollercoaster lovelife he had and how it all tangled up to present day but he seems happy now good fella. Bailey's well being Bailey very sassy!

Some episodes can be really shocking especially the death part of some of the characters

Spoiler Alert!

Something I'm really disappointed about about is when Izzy just left like srsly?! afterall she's been through battling a rare cancer tumor,being with Alex Karev she's just like gone! According to some news they say Heigl(Izzie) difficult to work with I dunno if that's true or not rumor as for George they say because he came out gay or something which I find really absurd like srsly people just because of that? I mean common!it's the 21st century he's a good guy! my heart goes to O'Mally bless his soul! and that moment when Mcdreamy died OMG! WHYYYYYY?! and then it feels like Mere's like her mom all over again..



Every season of course we're introduce to another additional cast/guest. Meeting Mcsteamy Sloan, Derek's Ex wife Allison,Cardio Goddesses Han & Teddy, Step sister lil grey Lexie to the "now" current crew Hunt,Jackson Avery,Kepner,Torres,Robbins...This show covered so many life events whether it comes to family,marriage,accidents,disasters,traumas,bombing terroristic threat,psycho shoot out,death and all other crazy stuff! Oh men tough life being a Doctor even though it's just on screen oh wow!  Overall 5 out of 5 stars I definitely highly recommend this show especially if you're going through something right now. 

Grey's Anatomy Season 12 is slated to Premiere on Thursday, September 24, 2015 at 8 pm, ABC

Anna Karenina (2012) | Movie Review

Source: Imbd
Director: Joe Wright
Writers: Tom Stoppard (screenplay), Leo Tolstoy (novel)
Stars: Keira Knightley, Jude Law, Aaron Taylor-Johnson |See full cast and crew »
Duration: 129 minutes
Genres: Drama ,Romance

Storyline:

In 1874, in the Imperial Russia, the aristocratic Anna Karenina travels from Saint Petersburg to Moscow to save the marriage of her brother Prince Oblonsky, who had had a love affair with his housemaid. Anna Karenina has a cold marriage with her husband, Count Alexei Karenin, and they have a son. Anna meets the cavalry officer Count Vronsky at the train station and they feel attracted by each other. Soon she learns that Vronsky will propose Kitty, who is the younger sister of her sister-in-law Dolly. Anna satisfactorily resolves the infidelity case of her brother and Kitty invites her to stay for the ball. However, Anna Karenina and Vronsky dance in the ball, calling the attention of the conservative society. Soon they have a love affair that will lead Anna Karenina to a tragic fate. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil


My thoughts:

There was a time I got a little bit obsessed with this movie I watched it so many times and played the original soundtrack so many times as well I love it! 

I love how this movie was created it's like an evolving theater very unique and impressive! The casting and characters performance was definitely phenomenal and spot on! the story reflects the society way back in the day but you can still see some those cultural aspect present in modern day in different countries in so many ways.  What I like about this story is that the characters persevere in order to pursue their love and  happiness plus the never ending question of morality. The costume designs by Jacqueline Durran so beautiful! wonderfully made!

My favorite character is none other than Count Alexei Karenin I was actually surprised by Jude Law's acting performance he did really well. I like how he's so righteous despite what happened. He respect and love Anna in his own way even til the very end. He's just so serious and uptight the exact opposite of Anna. What I like about Anna's character the way Keira Knightley portrayed it she's so cheerful and vibrant! very spontaneous! youthful I guess compare to her husband I think they're a lovely couple to begin with yin and yang.

At first I liked  Count Vronsky but I think he's still young and stupid. I don't like what he did to Kitty he left her hanging in the air, continue to flirt to other ladies I don't think he's that exclusive when in comes to girls and dating in general I'd like to think he is with Anna and that her love to her is genuine enough although he can't really measure up to Karenin's standard.He needs to man up! and take responsibility for his actions like Karenin

There are multiple love triangles OMG! I think the love aspect of this film/story transcends over time I think we could all relate and learn from it one way or another. And of course young love like Kitty and Levin these two makes my heart flutter the ways the tables turned for them so sad yet sweet at the same time they're actually a good match it's just that Kitty of course at first think the grass is always greener on the other side with Vronsky and her dream being like Anna but Levin and her actually they both bring the good out of each other.

That ending though....holy moly!  I'm not really expecting it can't really say I saw that coming even though I watched it so many time by jove! It's so sad and painful to die that way. Overall, I'd rate this movie 5 out of  5 stars so heartwarming and brilliant! I highly recommend it!

MY THOUGHTS:

I don't feel so good after watch both films I feel like I'm gonna barf!
I stayed away from this for a very long time and I thought I could stomach the content since I'm much older now but no not really I can't handle it. I tend to fast forward or skip then press play.

The Cannibal holocaust one I thought was real but it's not it was truly indeed as they say controversial at that time. I think Cannibalism is still considered taboo all over although some say it's still practiced in some tribes I don't know if it's real or not I don't think I want to find out.

As for the somewhat latest Cannibal (2013) I find it pretty boring although I can see the signs and symptoms for that poor guy.Both films are pretty disturbing I don't want to watch it again.There's really no sense of justice in it and the first one was nauseating due to jump cuts,shakiness of the footage "feeling authentic" /real feel ugh I hate it.

I didn't typed movie review for these titles since I didn't really watched it in its entirety so yeah but I'd still rate it 1 out of 5 stars.This films makes me sick!

Blackberry Z10 | Smartphone Review




My thoughts:

My first ever blackberry smartphone I got this phone as an upgrade for free with a two year plan at Verizon (although it's not really free since I paid $35 for an upgrade fee still a good deal). One year and six months later this is what I got to say...What I don't like about this phone besides the limited applications and thank God now it has instagram but they call it iGrann in bb world anyway another thing I don't like is the start up so whenever I have to restart or let's say I ran out of battery when I charge it back up it takes quite some time to load that's it.

If blackberry applications is the same with the ios/android I truly think this would be my ultimate and favorite perfect phone of all time why? due to its specifications I love it!

Camera:
Primary8 MP, 3264 x 2448 pixels, autofocus, LED flash, check quality
FeaturesGeo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR, panorama
Video1080p@30fps, check quality
Secondary2 MP, 720p@30fps
MEMORYCard slotmicroSD, up to 64 GB
Internal16 GB, 2 GB RAM
Battery: Removable Li-Ion 1800 mAh (I don't really like non-removable batteries I feel like and I know it would fail over time then bye bye phone I can't really pass it on that's why I always opted for removable batteries with everything really.) With heavy usage this phone could last me half a day but with minimal use once in a while check if I have any notifications etc it can last me one or two days without charging which is good.

It also has a micro sim slot.. they say you can use any blackberry abroad I haven't tested that yet but surely looking forward to it.

I love the hub so easy for me to check and see what's new if I have any notifications and such. It's also very light and sits very nicely in the palm of my hands very comfortable and sleek. I like the rubber like finish at the back so it doesn't slip my fingers.

Oh let's talk about some of the apps.. The compass app. in the home screen truly works and you can have as many windows/home screens as you like.

The Maps also good I would rank it on second place first being the google map of course haha!
for the blackberry maps it took me a while and a little tinkering also looking at my manuals and tutorials online how to set up the voice activated maps turn by turn. Its so worth it!

When you put something in the folders you can see the content icons in that specific folder even by just looking at your homescreen.

The games are also good I downloaded Iron man very action pack and interactive, Minion rush, Temple Run and more!

Overall, 4 out of 5 stars despite the lack of apps. I love this phone so much.The pros outweighs the cons  If you want your own little world I recommend this phone.
