Marbella Eyeliner

Marbella Permanent Eyeliner Pen #30
Master the art of beautiful eyes with this unique waterproof, smudge free, and long-lasting semi-permanent eyeliner pen


The eyeliner works well with both thin and thick applications. I like my black eyeliners dark and thick.

Water Test

I ran this under running water for 10 seconds. Once water hit it, ink disappeared. Quickly faded. Marbella's online website link states that it's waterproof. I say nope.

Rub Test

I rubbed it a lot. I made my skin turn a little red in the process. After vigorously rubbing it, it didn't smudge. It passed.

Before & After

I applied three layers of eyeliner but in bright light it looks shiny grey.

Price: $19.00 online
WHAT! Luckily, this was included in my June glambag (worth $10). Glad I didn't pay full price.

Rating: 1/5
A bit harsh but thats my opinion. I live for my eyeliners and I'm not satisfied with it. If it's a black eyeliner, I need it to be black even in bright sunlight or with multiple layers on. I can understand if it's not water-proof but if their website says it is but it really isn't then that's another disappointment.

- Smudge-proof

- Not black enough
- Not water-proof
- Not worth $19.00

NYX Round Lipstick Power

Got this lipstick from June subscription of myglam.

NYX Round Lipstick Power 629

❤ A velvet-textured lip cream formulated with rich color and moisturizers
❤ The round lipstick is creamy yet non-smudging and long-lasting
❤ The color you see on the lipstick is the color you get on the lips

The lipstick in general is moisturizing. It glides on very smooth. The color is very pigmented. I think the first layer is better suited for my skin complexion. The second layer looks odd on me in person but looks alright in photos.

Living Proof Nourishing Styling Cream

For all hair types

Eliminates frizz by blocking humidity. Weightlessly smoothes, conditions and tames frizzy, unmanageable hair. Free of silicones and heavy oils.

❤stops frizz. period
❤weightlessly blocks humidity
❤smooths & conditions
❤no silicone or oils

Usage: Generously coat, clean damp hair, from roots to ends. Style as usual.

I have thick, coarse, wavy/frizzy hair. Having dyed hair also makes it damaged. >_<

So I wanted to test the product out. On one side I used the product and the other side no product is used. I followed the directions and put it on my damp hair then I blow dried it out. This is the result.

The product did its job of keeping my frizz under control. Afterwards, I curled my hair and I liked how it turned out. Minimal amount of flyaway hairs. My hair even smells nice. A hint of floral.

I'm really happy with this month's glambag. Shipment came in early and the bag is cute with its gold glitteriness. The products in here I practically use everyday which is good. They got my shade of lipstick right this time. Yay! I'll review the products individually throughout this week.

I finally got a smartphone (about time!)  I had an old 2007 Katana phone by Sanyo. I was in desperate need for an upgrade.

I got the mytouch 4g by LG. I also switched phone companies from KDDI to T-mobile. KDDI was going to charge me way too much for a new smartphone. I thought they would give me a better deal since I was with them for 5 years but I guess it doesn't work that way. T-mobile lets me have unlimited text, data and 500 talk minutes for $60 a month. I'm still getting used to using a smartphone. I don't do much right now. I just check my email and post pics on facebook. I'm just so lazy inputting in everyones phone numbers.

Right now I have the standard cellphone cover. I wanna get cute ones soon!

Marc Jacobs pouch

I was searching through my archives and I couldn't find this post. I remember taking photos but I guess it never made it onto here. What's weird is that I couldn't located the photos on my computer or my copy of the magazine.

Sweet magazine always has brand name free items (fukuro). January issue came with 2 Marc Jacobs pouches and a Marc Jacobs calendar (not shown).

Vassen Little Mermaid Seaweed Green

I purchased Vassen Little Mermaid Seaweed Green from Pinky Paradise. They were having a 25% off promotion on their Mermaid Series. I originally bought all 4 colors: violent, green, brown and blue but Pinky emailed saying the violent was temporary sold out. They said it would be available after 2 months. I wasn't going to wait so they refunded that portion of the bill.

Lens Info
Diameter: 14.5
Water content: 42%
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Life Span: 1 year
Package: 1 contact lens case included

Color/Design: 5/5
Wow. I really like the mermaid series! The design is unique. I like the hint of blue and yellow. It's a good mixture of the colors. The green color still pops out even with my brown eyes.

Comfort: 5/5
42% water content. This is the most water content I've worn for circle lens. It's honestly really comfortable. I did not need to use eyedrops. I wore these for 8hrs.

Enlargement: 5/5
They do enlarge well for me especially when wearing my gyaru-inspired make-up.

Overall: 5/5
When I wear circle lens, people don't usually comment on my eyes but today a few people commented saying this pair suited me well. I can't wait to try the other colors from this series.

Lighting is terrible. Had to take photos with the bathroom light since I came home 10pm.

National Donut Day

Today is national donut day so all the mainstream donut places like Krispy Kreme and Dunkin' Donuts were offering free donuts. Sho and I went to get some donuts at Krispy Kreme. We went during the afternoon but the staff said they were already sold out. LIES! I saw a bunch of crates with plain donuts in the back! T_T To make our trip not wasted. We bought a dozen donuts for us and sho's family. My family is really anal on sweets so I can't bring them home.
