[VIDEO] review of some DAISO stuff

Posted on 29th, December, 2014

So, I’m trying to get this youtube thing going. It’s actually quite fun but a little tedious. At first I thought it was scary but since no one is actually watching my vids I feel better??!! haha.

I love rose fragrances so much.
It was hard to just walk on by these items so I got em. :cat2

The one on the left is passable. Can’t really recommend but it’s doable.

Forgot to mention the watery consistency of both. Need to use a lot to lather up.

In conclusion (taking into consideration the points made in the video):

Don’t be fooled by the cute packaging and skip these if you come across them. :h3

Certain DAISO products are huge hits like their sponge and brush cleaners. There are lots of hits and misses. :cat3


Some cheap finds

Posted on 08th, December, 2014

I can get lost for quite a bit browsing the makeup aisle anywhere. From the local supermarket to high end departments stores, it’s fun!

Here are a few things I picked up from the supermarket. :cat4

Majolica Majorca – GR615 nail polish
Majolica Majorca – OR313 orange liquid blush
CHIFURE – metal lipstick case
CHIFURE – 578 lipstick (red)
ururua moisturizing hand wash

CHIFURE – I will definitely be picking up a few more of these lipsticks since they are so cheap. I’ve never paid attention to CHIFURE stuff because the packaging is very simple. It’s easy to just totally miss it while browsing. They have a few nice, pretty safe, shades and each is about 300 yen! That is INSANELY cheap in Japan. The actual lipstick comes in a ‘refill’ kind of packaging.. there are a few cases that cost around 200-300 yen. Buuuuut… what I’d do is just switch the refills into the same case if I want to carry it with me. Basically it turns into a 600 yen lipstick if you buy a case every time huh?! :h3

I was on the hunt for a full coverage red color and got it for dirt cheap. It had the generic lipstick smell but it wasn’t strong. Feels very creamy and is opaque. So far this has been a winner.

The orange blush is greeeat! No complaints here :fa5 The bottle is also really cute.

In other news:

After another 3 month long wait I was able to get my hair straightened again at the salon. As you can see in the pictures below… the roots are funky where the hair is parted because the stylists couldn’t really focus on getting them bone straight.

Blurry shot with different lighting but I think it looks good.

Got this highly rated yet suspiciously cheap flat iron. I go up to around 180. Wouldn’t dare use the max setting! I think it was only around 3000 yen at biccamera.

It scares me sometimes… need to watch it. Heat reader better be accurate..

But wait! There’s more!

I need to do something about my room. Storage is there yet it’s still messy. Things need to go into drawers, etc.

It would be nice to get things straightened up before I go on winter break. There’s actually plenty of time for that and I should hold myself accountable. I technically only have 3 FULL days of work for this week and next week combined! All the other days are half days. NO EXCUSES! :misc7
