Unfortunately the original winner was disqualified for not following me/deleting their additional entry (against the rules), so I had to re-pick.
The winner is...

Seeing Selena Gomez in Costa Mesa, CA and a few products I've been loving recently~

So early Thursday morning of this week I went to South Coast Plaza's opening of their new Microsoft Store for one thing: Selena Gomez wristbands! If you were within the first 800 people in line you would get Premiere viewing (VIP) wristbands, which I was part of fortunately :) So on Saturday morning I dropped off my friend's wristband (she had to do some school stuff before coming) and I headed to the mall. I had woken up early (6am) and didn't have time to do my face at home, SO I DID IT IN MY CAR!! Including my lenses! Amazingly I did it and didn't look like a total mess, but putting on contacts in the car was probably the hardest thing for me lol

Long story short: I waited early and was within the first 50 people in line, so I was in the front row!

Review: Chocola co. No. 1 Parfait rich + nuts eyelash JU02

Hello everyone, sorry I've been MIA! I've been pretty busy the last week or so and have had tons of ups and downs. This post is way overdue, with some more that will be on the way as well.

I decided to do reviews for two brands of budget lashes in Japan: Chocola co. and nuts.

[Sales Post] Items to benefit Japan Red Cross

I am moving some beauty products into this post, along with a bunch of new stuff including 109 brand items, makeup and eyelashes! I wanted to do something for the people in Japan while getting rid of some extra things I have around as well. I will donate approximately 50% of the proceeds (minus shipping costs) of this sale to the Japan Red Cross.

  • I ship to anywhere, but these prices listed are for US-based customers. Anyone overseas will need to consult me for shipping fees.
  • I only accept payments via Paypal, unless you are located in Southern California.
  • Local meet ups are okay in the Costa Mesa/Irvine area. I go to the Rowland Heights area frequently as well.
  • All purchases will receive a free Dolly Wink catalog!
  • Leave a comment with your name, e-mail, paypal e-mail (if your contact e-mail is different than that or not), and what items you want.

お姉さんになった!!! - Oneesan ni natta!!! 4/11

Oneesan ni natta!!! has been in press since November 2010, but my local Japanese bookstore only started stocking it with this month's issue. It's notable because the main models include just graduated ageha model Sayaka Araki and former Jesus Diamante cover girl Keiko. It's produced by ageha, nuts and I love mama and focuses on gyaru style and life for those who are over 25.

A little update

Thanks to everyone who has been following me since the start of my giveaway, I'm already really close to 200 followers and so excited :D I'm sorry I haven't posted in the past few days, mainly due to a mid-term paper that was due last night but also because of the shock of the earthquake. I'm happy my friends are all okay in Japan, but I just can't help but be sad about it. I've done a lot of praying in the last 2 days, and hope all of you have done the same as well!

But I guess to lighten up the mood a bit, I don't think I've posted about my Eye Make Collection page! I post my eye makeup there more frequently than here on my blog, so don't be surprised if you see some makeup that I haven't posted here.

hi there! could you tell me the name of or where you bought your eyelash curler/box that's in your giveaway??

Hi, I found it here:
They also ship overseas :D

Friday, March 11, 2011

hey! i really adore your blog and love reading it. you mentioned cosmelandusa in an entry and i was wondering if you have ever ordered from there before and if you have was the service good? a huge thanks in advanced!

Thank you for being a reader! I have ordered from Cosmeland USA before, but I picked up my order locally so I don't know how their shipping is like. My order was ready within a day so it should be safe to order from :D They are also pretty knowledgeable in the products they sell as well in case you had any questions about any~

Review: Sakurina's Fairylash Flower Series in Bright eye

Since I've purchased so many lashes in the past few weeks I'm going to try to review some designs and brands when I have time. I've got loads of work to do in school since midterms are coming very soon but I'll do my best to post <3

Today I'm going to review ageha model Sakurina's brand Fairylash Flower Series in Bright eye. They are sold at Don Quijote stores in Japan and on Candy Magic's Rakuten Store (shipped within Japan only). I got this set through Wagamama-rama Shopping Service!

Review for Wagamama-Rama Tokyo Shopping Service

Since I love helping my readers shop easier for Japanese things, I thought I would introduce you guys to a shopping service I use! Run by the lovely Julie/clairparfait of A Year In Tokyo, she can do personal shopping for you in different areas of Tokyo or receive packages for you from online shops. More information about her service is here, including her fees and miscellaneous information :)

Here are the things that she picked up for me:
- Vanquish Spring 2011 Black Parka
- Rimmel Lip Concealer (used by egg models Yunkoro and Remi Sakamoto)
- Canmake Melty Nude Lipstick
- Canmake Bright Up Base
- Canmake Essence in Foundation
- Nuts magazine collaboration fake eyelashes in JU02
- Sakurina's Fairylash in Bright eye
- Nature is Lovely 3 packs in S-1 and S-2

Her service was wonderful and she is such a sweet girl! She gives constant updates about items you are searching for and lets you know what days she can shop or ship your items. Her fees are extremely fair, depending on what area/stores you want your item from and how much you buy. The care she put into everything was wonderful. She originally made a mistake when buying some items but caught it very quickly and fixed the issue within a day. All of my items were shipped in a very timely manner and I highly recommend her service.

Hey! i'm a follower from your blog since a while ago, i don't know if you remember me, im natsu_visual from livejournal :) i wanna ask you if i can wear circle lenses having both diseases, myopia and astigmatism? thanxs! :3 Good luck!

I did some research online and toric circle lenses should cover for both of those problems. Just make sure you get the correct prescription from your optometrist~ I would recommend mukuchu since they're the cheapest for the options they have!

Ask me anything

Spring break so far with a pleasant package :D

I've currently been on Spring Break from school for the past week and spent the time watching all of Hellcats so far and sleeping in until 1! Too bad it's only a week, but I have to get back to my normal sleeping schedule :(

I got this package today from Japan To Door with my recent orders of cosmetics (mostly eyelashes):
You can see that there's Diamond Lash, Eyemazing, Jewerich and a couple of random brands of lashes in there~ I will be opening up my Diamond Lash custom packs again very soon, but there will be a couple of rule changes! Stay tuned for that :D

 I also got Diamond Beauty's (loose) Diamond Puff in Dolly face, I've been so excited for this :D More of it behind the cut~
