"It"-Item Review⎪Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

The liquid liner that's been hot on the web... Kat Von D. Tattoo Liner. I'll cut to the chase and tell you what I love and don't love about this it-item.

What I love: 
I love the felt tip. It is amazing, great for the people who are new to liquid liners and those who are pros at it. It is perfect for getting right to the lash line and right to the inner corners of the eyes. Also, it is perfect for drawing the perfect cat eye. It really reminds me of the Korean eyeliners that I always love. It has the same brush that is so easy to work with.
I love the long-wear. It doesn't flake or wear off at all. In that aspect, it is quite the tattoo.

What I don't really love:
It's not bold and intense. That can be both good and bad, but if you are one to look for a full-impact liquid liner, I don't think this does the best job.
Another thing that might be a problem is that it dries pretty quickly. I don't think it would last very long. I've been using it for weeks and already, it isn't as intense as it was the first week.

Would I repurchase it:
Probably would! Unless I find something that does the same job but is a bit more intense and long-lasting (in terms of... before it dries out!).

a short film⎪my ring collection

In all the wish-list collages I've made on this blog, I've mentioned my love for rings over and over again. Until I found this store called Catbird I never had a thing for rings. They were either too extravagant or too bulky. I always wondered why jewelry stores couldn't make dainty feminine thin jewelries. But then I found Catbird and became obsessed.

Another store I feature is an Etsy store called Comejew. They have really affordable jewelry that is really well made! I've had experiences buying cheap jewelry and being so disappointed with the way they were made but I promise you, Comejew is amazing! Click on the name to be sent to the store :)

Since I've been away from my Youtube channel for the longest time, I decided to finally get around to showing my ring collection through a video. It's a short video, and I made it a little different -- no voice, no subtitle... just featuring my rings and fingers :)

If you have specific questions, feel free to pop them down below and I'll get back to you!

Review⎪BURBERRY Sheer Foundation

This was an unexpected discovery. Burberry Sheer Foundation has been rolling around my room for some time. My sister left it in my room, and she hasn't worn it since she first bought it so I thought I'd give it a try. I wasn't feeling like wearing a thick foundation, but I did want a bit of coverage. I picked this foundation up, just for the fun of it, and smoothed it all over my face. It was my first time trying it, and instantly my gut reaction was, this is nice.

I've been wearing it everyday since I first tried it. My hands keep going to it, preferring it over all my other foundations. I thought it was about time that I shared it with you guys, telling you what I think about it!

First of all, the full name is "Sheer Foundation" Luminous Fluid Foundation in the shade Trench No. 04. It is the perfect match for me.

Like its name, this foundation is definitely a medium coverage foundation. You can build it up to heavier coverage, but even then, it would be nowhere near the Estee Lauder maximum coverage foundation. Though I love my heavy-duty coverage foundations, I feel this foundation does enough of the coverage and with the shade being just right for me, I am happy with it just being medium coverage. I have my concealers to do the extra job of covering a few spots.

What I love about this foundation is the texture. When you pump it, it look as though it'd be on the velvety-matte side. But once you spread it all over your face, you are left with the dewiest, healthiest glow. This is en par with my all-time fave Nars Sheer Glow foundation. The thing about this is that it is lasts longer than the Nars Sheer Glow, AND it does not break me out! That is a definite big plus.

I've worn this foundation all day, and not only does it last really well (with the primers I wear, of course) but because it keeps the glow on my face all day long and it doesn't break me out, I feel content and safe wearing this! Whereas other foundations sometimes makes my skin feel itchy and makeup feeling heavy, this feels so unbelievably velvety and light, at the same time, giving off that glow and dewiness!

It also smells nice. I'm not one to care for the smell, but this smells nice and even though I have uber sensitive skin, the fragrance doesn't seem to cause any trouble!

Finally, packaging. I mean, it is Burberry and if you need a trophy on your topshelf, this sleek packaging won't do you any harm for sure!

I honestly can't say enough good things about this: good coverage, beautiful texture (dewiness, glow), long-lasting, no breakouts, smells nice, and beautiful packaging.

Highly recommend! xx
