First Impression: Cosrx Blackhead and Pore Zero Patch

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about the Cosrx Blackhead and Pore Zero Patch! I received this as a free sample at some point in my life, and thought that it was a really interesting product to try out. I don't usually use pore strips, but this seemed to be a little different to the usual sticky strips!

Review: Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher - All Shades

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Etude House Lovely Cookie Blushers! I completed the set of these blushes sometime last year, and it's taken me a couple of months to photograph and review these blushes because I had a very hard time capturing how these blushes look on the cheeks which is super frustrating. This is quite a lengthly post with 58 images (RIP page loading time) so grab a cup of coffee and get settled in!

Fail or Holy Grail Review: Bioré Watery Essence Sunscreen

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about the Bioré Watery Essence Sunscreen! This is one of my Holy Grail Sunscreens along with the Missha All-Around Safe Block Soft Finish Sun Milk that I reviewed years ago and although I like them both for different purposes, I think they are equally good sunscreens for me!

First Impression: Mecca Cosmetics In A Good Light; Fair

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about the Mecca Cosmetica In A Good Light! I was given this sample after talking with one of the sales assistants about the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer, and her advising me that it wouldn't work well with my dry skin. She gave me this sample when I purchased something else and said the colour would be perfect for my skin!

Review: Lime Crime Carousel Gloss

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about the Lime Crime Carousel Glosses! These are the five shades that are still sold, I don't have the previous shades since they were definitely not colours I was interested in at the time! If you don't like Lime Crime and don't want to support them, feel free to click away from this review now!

Store Review: ASOS

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about my shopping experience with ASOS! I've previously purchased from ASOS before but I never actually talked about my shopping experience. I think it's important to note that though this purchase was only apparel, ASOS is renowned for awful packaging while shipping cosmetics. I would avoid purchasing anything in glass bottles from ASOS because they will not bubble wrap them and there is a high chance they will be broken which sucks. But let's get on with the review! ^ ^

Website Practicality
The website is pretty good looking and quite easy to navigate. There are a fair few filter options, but they aren't 100% accurate all the time which is a little frustrating when you're trying to look for something specific in your size! It's easy to save items, but it's a little irritating trying to stack your bag because it tends to remove items like every 30mins or something which is irritating! I found it easy to create a login and checkout my order.

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about the Innisfree Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil and Liquid Foaming Cleanser! I haven't heard much about these from other bloggers, but I needed to take a cleansing oil and cleanser away on a weekend trip so these fit the bill perfectly!

Review: Shiseido Senka Perfect Skincare

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about the Shiseido Senka Perfect Skincare! I don't quite have the complete collection of this set of skincare, I'm missing a watery oil and a cleansing gel, but I didn't feel it was necessary to purchase these in order to complete this review.

Fail of Holy Grail Review: The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Boost

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about the The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Boost! I did a first impression on this a year and a half ago (omg time flies) and felt very ambivalent about it. I decided to purchase it while it was on sale and as you may be able to tell from the title, this is for sure not a product I would purchase again.

First Impression: Skinfood Good Afternoon Honey Black Tea BB Cream in 1: Light Beige

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about the Skinfood Good Afternoon Honey Black Tea BB Cream! This horrendously long name means that this BB Cream is part of the Skinfood Good Afternoon BB Cream series. I've previously tried the Peach Green Tea BB Cream, and I'll compare the two at the end of this post!

Review: Missha The Style Art Designing Foundation 12 Hours

Hello Princesses!

Store Review: Lime Crime

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about my shopping experience with Lime Crime! There are SO many people that hate Lime Crime due to the shocking scandals involving the company over many years. They have had claims that some of their products are repackaged shadows from another company, that all of the images are photoshopped to show colours that are not accurate, and most recently and most shocking of all that they were wilfully taking money from customers while their website was hacked about a year ago resulting in hundreds of customers having their lives ripped apart just from purchasing one lipstick from the Lime Crime website.

I'm not here to tell you that you should support Lime Crime if you don't feel right doing so. I'm here to tell you about my shopping experience with a website and how fast they ship to New Zealand. If you don't want to support the brand then don't. But please, don't leave nasty comments on my personal space on the internet because you don't agree with my decision to shop there.

Though in my personal opinion, it's not that the website itself was hacked that makes Lime Crime a dubious brand, it's the many screenshots of people conversing with the owner Doe Deere previous to her success with Lime Crime where she is generally rude to people. It's the photos that shine a light on how closely some of the products resemble other products that were produced long before the LC were. It's the fact that though their website was hacked along with many others, Lime Crime did not tell their customers as soon as it happened and warn them about the danger of fraudulent charges. 

If you don't like them, then don't shop there. I personally chose to shop there because I already had almost half of their products. I really wanted to review them because there are some nice products, and some terrible products. So therefore - I have to get the rest of the products somewhere, and buying their products at another store still means you're supporting the brand so it really makes no difference at the end of the day.

Rant over - onto the store review! 

Website Practicality
I found the website very easy to shop with. It's very pleasing visually and I like the tabs running accross the top of the page for navigation. I found it very easy to add select shades to my bag, create a log in and check out. I didn't like that you needed to click on each specific shade in the drop down bar to see the pricing while on sale, it's pretty time consuming since they have quite a lot of shades. I always shop online using PayPal and I had no issues with my purchase.

First Impression: Méthode Swiss Aqua Hydrating Day and Night Cream

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about the Méthode Swiss Aqua Hydrating Day and Night Cream! I received these as a gift with purchase from an order from Sasa and ignored them for a fairly long time as I just didn't know much about the brand. I decided to take the plunge and try this combo throughout the holiday season as I was travelling for about 3 weeks in December so this was a perfect time to trial these!
