Make-Up Removers

I've always been told to remove my make-up when I go to bed.  I've read article after article to remove it.  I've always felt that with oily skin you are more prone to wash it off instead of leaving it on.  I've always wanted to wash my face before bedtime.  It feels much better to sleep with a clean face.  There have been times when I was in college and didn't wash my face but on a general whole, I always wash my face before bed time.  It ranks up there with brushing my teeth at least twice or more times a day.

Anyways I've been looking for a good remover that wasn't something expensive like the Lancome make-up remover I love so much.  I can't see myself purchasing something that is over $20.00 USD when I need to replace it.  I need to actually use it up but I am loving my drug store brands.  They're awesome!  I actually found them on accident when I was in a Walgreens.  I wasn't looking for them but I noticed them and decided it would be good …

IPSY Glam Bags

If you haven't heard of Michelle Phan from youtube, you need to drag yourself out from under the rock you've been hiding under.  She is one of the most famous make up gurus on youtube.  I really find that she does some fun tutorials but she's more focused on her business than she is on youtube lately.

One fun thing I do enjoy about Michelle is that she started IPSY Glam Bags.  I thought it would be fun to try these bags out.  Here's the break down:

1.  Once a month you get a small bag of different beauty products.  The products will be determined by the way you answer a quiz through the website.  It's not difficult and actually a bit fun.

2.  Your bag will come to you in a bright pink bubble wrapper envelop.  I actually look forward to having this in my P.O. Box!  It's a bit exciting to find out what I'll get that month.  In each pink envelop there is a cute makeup bag.  Well, not always cute.  Some I found were a bit ugly.  This month's was much more a…

Baby Face BB Cream and Pore Powder

I have changed the kind of BB Cream I've used since I last blogged about which brand I used.  I've tried dozens and dozens of different brands.  I have settled with Baby Face for the bottled version and another from Missha, which is a compact.  But today I am writing about the Baby Face brand.

I found it on accident when a beauty store had it on sale in my local H-Mart, Korean grocery store, and really love it.  It's nice and light.  It covers my face well and I use a bit of concealer to cover my awful dark circles and any imperfections.

This brand isn't very expensive.  I believe the BB Cream was about $12.00 USD and the powder was about $10.00 USD.  It's fairly inexpensive but of course buying a lot of products together will get pricey.  I did like the pore powder too.  It is white but blends well.  I am fair skinned so it could just be because of my skin tone.  When I'm not using my Missha BB Cream I use this.  But even with the Missha BB Cream compact, I st…
