Yay! So I’ve recently become more interested in makeup! I’ve always been pretty lazy about my makeup outside of cosplay—it was day for celebration whenever I spent more than 2 minutes in the morning blotting my face with oil absorbing sheets before walking out the door…but that’s changed. ^_^ (It’s probably because I’m aging, meep! Must camouflage age lines with makeup!)

With that, I’ve hauled some Korean makeup products, which I’ve heard are both affordable and good quality!

Ta-da!

Here are the products in order and the approximate price you can expect to purchase them for:

  1. iPhone 5 case and wallet – $10
  2. Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly B.B. (Shade #1) – $12
  3. Secret Key Snow White Milky Pact – $13
  4. Innisfree Eco Flower Water Tint (Rose) – $7
  5. Etude House Kissful Tint Chou (Shade #4) – $6
  6. Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder – $6
  7. Missha The Style Fitting Wear Makeup Base(Lavender) – $15

I bought my products from eBay, Amazon, and various Korean makeup sites.

I was particularly interested in two of these products; Snow White Milky Pact and Missha The Style Lavender both promised to wash out my skin to a super duper pasty pale white which I needed for my Rei Ayanami cosplay. The others are all for daily use.

I will be reviewing all the makeup products slowly as I go through them. ^_^

For now, I’ll leave you with a review of the iPhone 5 wallet/case I bought. I wanted something to hold my ID, badge, and cash at anime conventions—I abhor lugging around a purse and this is far less conspicuous! I bought mine on Amazon. (You can do a quick search and there are many sellers who stock this type of phone case in other designs.) Check it out. =)

The colors are really cute! I love multifunctional phone cases like this! My phone fits in it securely and the card slots are perfect for carrying around a few items. You can’t fit in too much cash, but I squeezed in 3 twenty dollar bills and it was fine along with my ID, credit card, and badges.

The magnetic clasp holds everything together and I love the wrist strap! It’s awesome that I don’t have to worry about holding it or forgetting it as I place it down somewhere while I go stalk cosplayers for photos, yay!

I think the best and most unexpected bonus is the stylus that it comes with. This is incredibly useful for me because a lot of characters in my cosplay repertoire have gloves, argh! Damn you gloves, thwarting my ability to unlock the phone screen. So this is much appreciated! And I can clip it to the side of the case when I’m not using it.

In short, I love this case. =)
