My Thoughts:

I bought it at Publix (grocery store) I think it was on sale when I got it last year with a coupon or so I forgot the price but according to their site it's $13.95 it comes in three shades: Creamy natural,Buff Beige and Natural Beige. I have the first one: creamy natural.

The bottom compartment looks like this, there's the mirror, then the mini free brush and there are holes at the very bottom for ventilation purposes mayhaps? I dunno 

Now I get it when people say they hate the free brush that comes along with the kit like this (in any product whatsoever no matter what line or brand) So yeah after a couple of cleanups with lukewarm water and soap it became like this the adhesive/glue that's supposedly holding the bristles got caught/mixed in it's just so sad coz I sorta like the free brush which I find convenient to have/use although it feels a little rough since it's like synthetic on the skin ugh and I don't think there is any process to reverse this so I just got to deal with it or just use one of my face brushes -_-
 First look it looks like it's too much but once it blends in the coverage is light and finish off sheer.
with just one swipe of my finger 

it blends really nice especially on my face it definitely corrects the redness although if you have dry-normal skin like mine even though I bought creamy natural I just have to dab it on my face gently and not so much or else it might create/accentuate the dry patch.Definitely need to moisturize a lot. Overall, 3.5 out of 5 stars I like how it corrects the redness of my skin and all that although sometimes I can appear quite ghostly white or pale haha It's light,compact and travel friendly.

Net Wt. 0.13g/3.6g (each)

The first three's quite moisturizing while the last two got a matte finish.The Packaging is just clear plastic at the top and black at the bottom which is kinda cheap looking but hey what am I expecting it's these lipsticks are like $1 or something sometimes you can even buy them buy 1 get 50% off. The Colors are very pigmented I like to play with these a lot and practice etc.the only color I didn't like is Vamp it up coz it's like and I feel like I just ate/drank squid ink hahaha truly very vampy,goth looking I don't really like the chemically taste like ugh but ya know now I understand why it's affordable and teens-adults have a love/hate relationship about them. 

Packaging 2.5 out of 5 stars

1=Blue Divine  2=Blackest Blue 3=Eggplant


My thoughts:
I bought these at Walgreens for $2.49 each. I think these are great eyeliner pencils especially if you're just starting out/beginning to try and experiment makeup. It's soft silky creamy like texture so it glides smoothly on my eyelids, easy to apply, convenient,travel friendly and I like to use this a lot to play around with my looks and practice putting my eye makeup I love how I can smudge it easily so I can do my attempt on smokey eyes,I usually use this alone/by itself especially when I don't want to put some eyeshadows on,they're easy to blend.I like the colors and color payoff which is bold and pigmented. One time one of the edges broke I just simply use the back of my hand in order to recreate that round like edge and viola! it works no need for a sharpener whatsoever. Con(s), well it's not waterproof so if you scratch your eyes a lot chances are it would smudge or whatever. As long as you don't scratch your eyes excessively I think this won't budge the moment it sets and it's not that long lasting depends how you use it really so yeah...Verdict, 5 out of 5 stars if you want an affordable easy to use eyeliner try to give this one a go. ^_^

My thoughts:

I don't really use lipliners but I gave these a GO since they're like $2.49 each at Walgreens so yeah I bought them woohoo! 1- Plush Plum is the closest to my natural lip color so it's really nice I can actually wear it by itself but it can be drying so with a lip balm on and then this one would be fine. 2 is really red I only use this  if ever I put some red lipstick on so it won't bleed on me. 3 is kinda mauve-ish light rosey pink while 4 is like 1 & 3 combined but darker shade like purplish berry almost. I think these are great lipliners especially if you're just starting out/beginning to try and experiment makeup, it's affordable,easy to apply,silky smooth it glides on nicely on my lips and sometimes I like to put it on my eyelids as an eyeliner as it almost has the same ingredients either way its great looking, the colors very nice,bold and pigmented although it's not that long lasting. Overall, 4.5 out of 5 stars really convenient,affordable and travel friendly.

Tony Moly Delight Tint Crayon #7 Neon Red | Makeup Review

Image & information source: Koreadepart

My thoughts:
So I bought this product for quite some time now [ #7 Neon Red for $4.92 (original price $6.15)] over at Koredepart  which I think is a good price as it is a tint/crayon lipstick sort of thing. Next I'll show you what it looks like on me.
dry,natural lip color
 With Tony Moly Delight Tint Crayon #7 Neon Red (one swipe/one layer on)
This is what my lips looks like as the color fades

This is what the 2.8g  product looks like in my hand and that's seriously how far that lip color goes not very long compare to the packaging itself.

The only thing I don't like about this product is that it's not very long lasting that's it.

As for what I like/love about this product is that it's creamy, easy to apply,very moisturizing and as you can see from the my lip swatch pictures above it has a wonderful color payoff off with just one swipe/layer on and it fades beautifully too my lips looks so much better and healthy looking afterwards. The product itself has a sweet candy scent and it actually tastes nice haha!

As for the packaging I find it cute, simple,quite a thick/chubby looking tube but very comfortable at  hand and the bottom part always works even if I turned the lip product all the way up. 

I'm not sure what to feel though about the lip product content sometimes I feel like it's just the right amount of product for the price and fit my needs just right then again if I use this everyday I think of course I'll ran out of it right away so I guess this is a nice supplemental lip color from time to time. Very handy and travel friendly I just hope it won't melt whenever I travel to a tropical country.

Final verdict, 5 out of 5 stars! I don't think you can go wrong with it and it's affordable too plus quite a wide range of bright lip colors to choose from.

What's your favorite lip color? I hope you give this one a shot! ^_^

Hannibal (2001) | Movie Review

Source: Imbd
Director: Ridley Scott
Writers: Thomas Harris (novel), David Mamet(screenplay), 1 more credit »
Stars: Anthony Hopkins, Julianne Moore, Gary Oldman |See full cast and crew »
Runtime: 131 minutes
Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller
Release date: 9 February 2001 (USA)

Living in exile, Hannibal Lecter tries to reconnect with now disgraced FBI agent Clarice Starling and finds himself a target for revenge from a powerful victim.

My thoughts:

Revenge better served cold then it turns sour as the tables turn and quickly bite you in the arse or in this case face! 

I didn't really watch this movie series in order of release date or storyline or whatever I just watched them the moment I found them and so happens that I'm available at the time. I've been meaning to watch this film anyway since I started watching Hannibal (tv series 2013-2015). For some reason way back in the day I shy away or really don't want to watch it due to cannibalism involved even the movie cannibal.

anywho the story telling was quite boring to begin with, a bit action pack in some parts though there are other parts that simply failed to capture my attention. I like the last 20 minutes of the film as it truly put the pieces together I appreciated that especially that last meal OMG! truly disturbing!.

As far as the victim who plotted it all and tries to buy almost everyone who said yes to his plans are simply mad! good thing for hannibal being hannibal. 

Julia Moore is simply ageless I can't believe she still look like this now wow! well as Clarice Starling I think she did a fine job quick kickass you go girl! Although I hope she'd go after hannibal herself overseas. The other characters are pretty much predictable and got what they deserve. Overall I gave this movie  3 out of 5 stars not quite as disturbing as I thought it would/should be. Dunno why I still like the tv series modern day take of this better.
