Cosmetic Mini-Haul

Waaaa it's been a while since I actually purchased some new cosmetics. While looking through the beauty section in Loft, I discovered at the NYX corner the Butter lipsticks that everybody is so cray cray about. While spending my time at the beautycorner I came across some other really interesting products and got really into Canmake.



NYX Butter Lipstick BLS06 Fireball

I've been looking for these Butter lipstick since they came out. There were 4 or 5 different shades available and of course I went for the brightest color of them all. It is this orange-red color. It is a slightly shimmery shade.




NYX Matte Lipstick MLS08 Pure Red

While discovering the Butter Lipsticks I also came across NYX Matte Lipstick line. I'm all about matte lipsticks. I'm not really a huge fan of shimmer or gloss lipproducts, that's why you almost never see me wear lipgloss.
Of course also for the matte lipstick section I took red. It's a really beautiful deep red.




Canmake Cover and Stretch Concealer UV Waterproof No. 02

Even though Canmake is really popular in Japan because its cheap prices, I never was really interested until lately.
This concealer made me fall in love with it's cover potential. I only took a small amount and put it on a pimple and it covered it up perfectly.



Canmake Highlight and Retouch Concealer UV

Well after falling in love with Canmake I was just picking up random products that seemed worth the try and this highlighting stick was one of them too. I have actually never used a liquid highlighter before.



Canmake Eyebrow Liquid No. 01 + 02

Canmake has a huge choice of eyebrow products. I'm already using Canmakes brow powder so I also decided to try out these liquids. They are great to fill in gabs and still look really natural.





Canmake Slim Browliner No. 02

This browliner gives me a more precise application in shading my brows.




Chulip Paris Perfect Memories 

You might all know EOS lipproducts. This product comes really close to it. It has the same shape and same system of application. They had different flavours. I took the strawberry scented one. They feel really moisturizing.

Curél Sebum Care Moisture Gel Review



For a long time I haven't included any sebum products in my skincare routine. This is the first product that I've ever used from Curel. I found it somewhere in my regular drugstore.


Product description

Curél is a brand formulated by the japanese brand Kao. It is Japan's Nr. 1 brand for sensitive ASIAN skin. It offers products for Face, Hair and Body. Since my skin is sensitive and acne-prone, I decided to try this moisture gel.
It regulates oil and reduces acne appearences. Strenghten skin by hydrating and moisturizing the skin. The gel texture penetrates fast into skin leaving it matt and hydrated.

All the products are:

  • alcohol-free
  • hypoallergic
  • fragrance-free
  • colorant-free
  • clinically tested on asian skin
  • pH balanced


Packaging

It comes in a transparent plastic bottle. As a good point it has a pump. It comes with a cap to protect the pump from dirt and dust.

The bottle contains 120ml


How it works

I apply it morning and evening after applying lotion. I wait till it has absorbed completely into skin before applying moisturizer.

Rate 3/5

It's true that since I started to use this product my skin has stopped breaking out, I still have here and there some pimples breaking though. I never had any irritations or redness while using this product. As for its moisturizing properties I never really had the feeling that my skin has become more moisturized than before and my skin belongs to the dry side.

All in one it definitely works for sensitive skin. It might also be that it doesn't work at its best because I have european skin and this product claims to work for asian skin.

Backpacks in Harajuku

For my trip to Hokkaido I needed a backpack and since I didn't want to spend too much money on it I went to look for it on the famous Takeshitadori in Harajuku.
Literally every store had backpacks. I quite of had a hard time in finding one. I found sooo many cute backpacks that I feel like sharing them with you guys. =))

Here it comes!!


This backpack is for all ya Sailormoon fans out there!!! Found it in a store called WEGO (is one of my favs stores)

 
Same store as before... This bagpacks are just super stylish and beautiful!! They belong to the smaller sizes tho.


Unicorns!!! All over the backpack!! I almost got this one but it was a little to small for me.


I was about to get this one aswell but the quality seems a little to shady.


It seems that NY backpacks are a huge hit lately. I've seen them everywhere.



KAWAIIIIIII!!!!!! This has become my absolute favorite!!! An owl backpack!! Too bad that it was quite expensive... =(


EWWWWWW... Lion-head backpack xD LOL


In the end I decided to go for this one.. just because the quality seems pretty good and it was inexpensive.
