Laneige Serum Intense Lipstick #SYR33

A perfect semi-sheer color in beige or nude to go on your lips, which will complementing your dark eye makeup. Take a look at how Cheon Song Yi (Jeon Ji Hyun) wear this shade. You can tell her eyeliner is heavier than usual, therefore a beige color such as this lippie complementing her overall look.

Laneige Serum Intense Lipstick in SYR33 Sheer Beige.

Super moisturizing. I don't even have to put on vaseline prior to wearing this color. The only downfall is that, it is not very long lasting compare to other brands such as YSL or similar brand IOPE. I still love it though! I don't mind reapplying it every 3 hours or so.

IOPE Water Fit Lipstick #44

For those who have read my previous post on the YSL Rouge Pur Lipstick worn by Cheon Son Yi (Jeon Ji Hyun) in You Who Came From Another Star K-drama. I am recently very obsessed with her lip colors so I decided to purchase a few lippies worn by her in the movie. Here it goes...

IOPE Water Fit #44 Forever Pink

Texture is smooth and rich on lips, but moisturzing enough. Unlike the MAC lipsticks, which I do like them because of the variety of shades they have, however I'd hate using them on a regular day-to-day basis because they're super dry. $15/lippie... Oh well what can you expect! This IOPE Water Fit Lipstick #44 is a great hot pink option to be used everyday (if you like). It is moisturizing and has a semi-glossy finish. Totally in love with it!! Been using it everyday just because I love it so much and I think it goes really well with my skin tone. Pretty long lasting as well, however not as long lasting as the YSL lipsticks.

If you happen to read this blog and know any awesome lip color please leave me a comment! Thanks! 😊😊

YSL Rouge Pur Lipstick #52

I have decided to jump on the band wagon of the K-drama "Man From Another Star." I became so obsessed with the series that, I finished it within a day and a half. Of course, that meant a sleepless night. The movie made me laugh when the female actress Jeon Ji Hyun, who played Cheon Song Yi were so hysterically heartbroken. The movie made me cry when the couple went through the depart moments.

Not only I love the movie because of its story behind it; everyone needs to love and be loved whether it is with a person or something that you do. People who look glamorous on the outside may be lonely on the inside and that, we just cannot judge a person solely on the surface. I am also obsessed with Cheon Song Yi's makeup. Her dewy looking skin with hot pink lips and barely-there lifht pink eyeshadow. She looks beautiful, effordless!

Isn't she beautiful???

I googled and find that her lip color wasn't created by just one lip product. However, one of the colors that they used on her lips were the YSL Rouge Pur Lipstick #52 in Rosy Coral.

 I went to Nordstrom and found that it was already sold out (in America). I had the sales associate orderred me one. Here is my baby....!!! So excited!

The lipstick looks more of a hot pink to me than on Nordtrom's picture, which looks more red. Tried it on! The color is vibrant and lasted me all day long, even after a meal.

Love it!!!! Under white lighting it looks pink. With less lighting, it looks more of a hot pink with a tiny red in it!

Will you buy it?? I'd say Yes! You'll fall in love with it!

2015 - Happy New Year!!

I can't believe another year has gone by. Time flies fast when you work hard and literally have the same daily routine. You begin to not being able to keep track of time.

Reflection on 2014:

- Location, moving twice within the same year and finally ended up living where I wanted to live.
- Job, moved up to where I wanted but then realized that wasn't suitable for me. However, 2014 was the year that I began my journey - a long journey, career wise and it's gonna need time to get there.
- Family, still the same old except for there was a little disconnection due to the fact that we have different perspectives on various aspects.

New Year Resolutions

I came to the realization that after so many years of trying to live up to someone's or the society's expectation, why don't you just drop it and live true to yourself? Be brave to walk on the path that you've always wanted. Even if you don't know which path to get there, you should just continue to walk and discover as each moment. I know what I want! I have such a vivid image of what I want to achive. Juslike other people, I'm unsure of the route that will get me there. There are hundreds of routes that can take you to the end result that you want. The question is: Which one is the most SUITABLE for you? Everyone has a unique life, fate, and destiny. You just cannot compare yourself to other peope. Instead, ask yourself this, "Am I a better person today than myself from yesterday?" I believe you will find the answer to yourself in order to figure out which route you wanna take to get you there. To conquer that mountain of dreams that you have always wanted to achieve, one by one! Time. When you were little, time wasn't a big deal. Now you're living your life, time is a huge piece. Every minute you breathe, you should put in "consistency," that way it's not wasted. Whether it is working harder, saving more money, or... Simply just self-discover by letting yourself learn and absorb all the beauty you have encounterred in your life. Nothing is ugly and everything has it's own beauty. Job wise speaking. Allow yourself to grow and to possess a greater heart by being open minded and embrace what there is to embrace. I don't know the end result yet, because I'm still walking on my own path but I strongly believe I will get there when I'm one step at a time conquering darker side - myself. Life smiles at people who are brave, a positive thinker, and a hard worker!

Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas!!

Hello hello!

Merry Christmas and thanks again for visiting my blog! I know there aren't much contents, but... It is a personal blog written based on my personal interests. Anyways!!! Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas with your friends/family!

The 2014 year is coming to an end in about a week and I'm excited for a new year coming. Just sad that I'm getting older... LoL. However, regardless of what age you are what matters is in the heart, right?

Take it slow with every step you take and once when you have surpassed it, look back! To learn what you had done best and what could be improved for the better. Life is a journey after journey. Learn from yourself and be best at what you are doing whether it is by choice or not!

Life is a cross-road. Whether you want to cross or not is totally up to you. There's only so much that you can forsee across the street, but what happens after that no body knows. All you got to do is... Make a decision and ride with it!

IV Glutathione - Day 7

My last treatment. Upon the completion of this treatment, I purchased the Glutathione pills 60 days supply to maintain and then will take the IV every other month.

My pictures without photoshop. In different angles. Indoor lighting in natural light.

Overal Thoughts:
As I was getting the treatment done, I definitely feel healthier. There wasn't a "wow" result in skin whitening as I was expected. However, I did see some clarity and brightening effect on my skin. You will definitely see the "brightening" effect on your face, not so much of whitening. On my body, my arms seem to lightened a bit too! But you have to be careful of staying in the sun, even if you're driving in the car with sun light directly at your face and body. Cover yourself with long sleeves if you're planning to be out and about in the sun for more than 10 minutes. It can burn your skin and make it look pink or... Burnt! LoL. 

Stay away from Burt's Bee Brightening products. I tried it on the night before and the next morning woke up with my face looking like "honey." I meant, if you're lookibg for a brightening effect from this product, it actually did the opposite. My face was sooo dark! Out of no where. I was terrified. I threw away the whole sample pack.

Bottom line, if you want to achieve youthful looking skin, IV Glutathione is the ideal. It not only brightened your skin but also provide a boost to your immune system. For skin whitening, I think it requires a maintenant process and over a period of time! Unlike bleaching products that you on your skin to whiten it, it only affects the surface of your skin but your body still produce a regular level of melanin. Glutathione, on the other hand will need time to blend into your melanin and body as a whole. Therefore, they said it is a "process" to maintain and whitened your skin inside out.

Lob Hairstyles

I've been seriously pondering on getting a lob. Not a bob, but a lob! A longer version of a bob. I think it makes women look younger and more active. These are some of my inspirations:

My idol: Jessica Alba with her polished soft curl lob.

And of course, when it is not styled all the way, thus making it looks effortless.

Rachel Adams with her fringe that frames her face so well. I mean soooo well! Making her look very chic, girlish, and youthful.

Lily Collins with her lob partly pulled to the back. Adorable!

When my lob grows out a little longer, I definitely want mine to look somewhat like this!

And of course, there is the lob with layers

You can even crimp your hair to create more volume and chic like Minh Hang too!
