I received some products from touch in SOL. Even though I'm Korean, I first heard about touch in SOL through Glossy Box when I received Feel Like Honey Moon Skin Base. I still use the primer to this day and love it! It's really easy to use, as well as, it works well. For that reason, I was extremely excited to try more products from touch in SOL. For this post, I will review their gel eyeliner.

Manicure Monday: Cult Nails in Deal With It

Please don't forget to enter AVEENO® BB Cream Giveaway. It ends April 2, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. PST (Pacific time).


Disclaimer: The product mentioned in this post is given to me. I am not affiliated with the company nor getting paid to advertise any products. This post is written with my honest opinion.

I thought about it and decided I'm going to follow the trend Manicure Monday. It gives me a chance to review the polish briefly if I'm not reviewing thoroughly, as well as, swatches of the nail polish. Of course, there will be times I don't have any Manicure Monday if  I'm letting my nails breathe. Here's goes my first Manicure Monday...

I received this nail polish from Cult Nails when I went to The Makeup Show LA 2013. If you do not know anything about this brand, here's the information I got from their website.

"Cult Nails was the dream of a nail blogger R3 Daily otherwise known as Maria Morrison. Ever since Maria was a little girl she loved nail polish and all things nail related. Maria knew when she grew up she would work in the nail industry. Of course at the time she thought she would be doing nails in her own salon. Life however had other plans for Maria. She obtained a Bachelor's degree in Business Management and Human Resources. While her career took a detour, Maria's passion for doing her nails and those of her friends continued. If Maria couldn't find the colors she was looking for, she would mix colors together to get the right look. Maria started her blog R3daily in January 2010 and her passion continued to grow and so did her polish collection. After a while though Maria realized that most polish companies were coming out with similar colors each season and still she was mixing colors to achieve her desired look. Maria finally took matter into her own hands and has developed a line that doesn't just follow nail and fashion trends, but blends the fashion trends to blaze the way for new and innovative polish colors for polish fanatics everywhere.

Maria didn't stop there, her goal is to have a green company. Her polish is B3 Free which means they don't contain Toulene, Formaldehyde or Dibutyl Phthalate. But she didn't stop there, Cult Nails Nail Lacquers are also free of Camphor. Cult Nails is a Cruelty Free company and does not test on animals or use products that are tested on animals or that are animal by products. All polish is Vegan friendly. In keeping with our green initiatives all packaging is recyclable and some even reusable. We use only recycled/recycleable boxes to ship our polish that can be reused or recycled by the consumer and utilize cotton balls or our packaging materials. This not only allows the polish to be protected during shipment, but supplies our customers with some of the materials needed to remove their old polish once our product arrives! The cotton ball initiative, as we like to call it, a concept from Maria's 12 year old daughter.

While the initial brand debut is a small limited collection, our goal is to bring you more amazing colors each fashion season creating a Cult following worldwide."

Before I start my Part 2 of The Makeup Show LA 2013, check out my Part 1 (Opening Party). I had an amazing night of meeting new people, being surrounded by professionals, creative piece of arts (face chart and human models), and best of all sharing one common interest in the beauty world.

Now for Part 2... The first day of The Makeup Show! Everywhere you go, you're surrounded by makeup booths. Here are some of the booths I took.

The Makeup Show LA 2013 Part 1

This is the 5th year of The Makeup Show in LA, Los Angeles. I attended both Friday night and Saturday. Friday night, March 1st, was the "Opening Party." It's so exciting to see the talent of the professionals and upcoming professionals. That's the one thing I love about The Makeup Show. It's dedicated to people in the industry!

One of the contest they had this year was face chart. I only took pictures of my two favorites.

February Favorites & Finished Products and AVEENO® Winner

I had an exciting weekend! I cannot wait to write about it. Look forward to that post. ;) Now for my February Favorites and Finished Products...

February Favorites
LacVert Everyday Sun Block: This is a Korean brand and it's not very known here, US. My family whenever they go back to Korea for a visit gets me this sunscreen. The reason why I love this sunscreen so much is that it's water-based. It does not leave a white cast and it sinks into your skin. It's feels like you're putting moisturizer on your face. It's not heavy, does not smell, and it feels good. It's hard to find in stores, but they do sell it on Amazon.

VOV Show Case Ball On Cheek in Bebe Pink: This is another Korean brand and it is hard to find in stores here. I'm not too sure if they sell this on Amazon, but it doesn't hurt to try if you're interested in this product. You can read my thorough review here. Now that spring is approaching, I'll be using this a lot on my cheeks. During the winter time, I used it as a highlighter. I love how versatile this product is, at the same time, how cute it is.

Lorac Starry-Eyed Baked Eye Shadow Trio in Star Power: This palette was part of Lorac Close Up: Real Life To Red Carpet Natural To Dramatic Face Tutorial. Here's a post on the kit and what was included. I've been using this a lot this month. It's so smooth, pigmented, and blends easily. I also like the color combination.

Born Pretty Store Zipper Nail Art Sticker Water Decals in Silver: I'm not a big fan of stickers, but I have to say this is the bomb! You can read my thorough review, as well as, a look done with the sticker. It's really easy to apply and it's long lasting. Not only that but the look is so unique. I love it!

Basq Cucumber Tea Soothing Eye Gel: This was part of April GlossyBox USA. You can read my post to see what was included in the April GlossyBox USA. At first, I thought I wouldn't like this product because it's an eye gel. Since I have dry skin, I look for anti-aging products that is thick in consistency that will help with the wrinkles. When it comes to eye gel, I think it's more for the puffiness which I do not worry about. Actually, this has helped my wrinkles. It hasn't completely disappeared but it has improved. I have to say probably the best results I've seen in the frequent years of using different eye creams.


February Finished Products
AVEENO® Ultra-Calming Makeup Removing Wipes: I received this product because I am an ambassador for the brand. It took me awhile to finish this product, because I've been trying to finish my cream removers. After I finish my cream removers, I will go back to wipes. I also used these wipes for my lazy days when I didn't want to wash my face. This is a good wipe. It cleans well and smells nice. The only thing I noticed is that my eyes are sensitive to these wipes. It would tingle a bit and turn red for couple of minutes.

Would repurchase: No.


Now for AVEENO® Valentine's Day Giveaway winner...
The winner will win AVEENO® Pure Renewal Dry Shampoo.

The winner is...
