MAC Cream Foundations: Studio Tech vs. Full Coverage

Some of my readers know that I have been using MAC's Studio Tech cream foundation since last summer, which I actually bought because I was looking for their Full Coverage Foundation (which is a PRO item only). While I have enjoyed it over the last half year or so and have even re-purchased it when I finished my first compact, I wanted to try the Full Coverage Foundation to see if there was a real difference or not between them.

New Diamond Lash Series: Little Wink Series

This new eyelash series was just put up on sale on Diamond Beauty's online store, and will officially be rolled out in Japan on 2/24. The models for this series features Narumi Nakakita (former PopSister, current Edge Style model), Yumi Higashino (BLENDA model), and Yuki Yamamoto (JELLY model) and is supposed to go for a more natural, eyelash extension look. It reminds me a lot of Dolly Wink's new Otona line!

Circle lens review: E-301 3 Tone Grey (Toric) from mukuCHU

Since some of my lenses have started to expire, I made an order quite awhile ago for new toric lenses to replace the ones I had. Since the E-301 series was finally available at mukuCHU for purchase, I knew I HAD to get these! I have been wearing these consistently for the past month to school.

Note: Review is required but I purchased these lenses.

The design of the lenses. If you look closely, you can see that the design doesn't take up the whole lens, so it's actually quite small :(

Valentine's Day Beauty Swap with Krystal

I participated in a beauty swap put together by Kelly of Lipgloss Love Affair for Valentine's Day, and I got paired up with Krystal from Singapore. We are really fortunate to get along really well with each other, and that we both had brands of products that we wanted to get items from :D So here's how our swap went~

 I won't list everything since there is a lot of items, but I'll share a couple behind the cut~

Fyrinnae Eyeshadow Swatches ♥

I mentioned getting a haul from Fyrinnae Cosmetics in a recent post, so I thought I would swatch the eyeshadows I got since it never hurts to post about them :)

The eyeshadows I swatched are in the following order: Snow Leopard, Knickers in a Twist, Platinum, Shinigami, Newcastle, Immortality, Fyre & Ice, and Te Amo. I applied these with a wet eyeshadow brush, no primer or Pixie Epoxy. They are also swatched on my NW30 skin.

With flash:

With natural lighting:
So as you can see, these eyeshadows apply very well and are quite vibrant without the use of eye shadow primer. I'm really quite happy with all of them, with maybe the exception of Platinum but I haven't tried to wear it out yet.

All of these are available at the Fyrinnae website for around $5-6 for full sized jars and $2 for sample sized jars. These are a great value for how pigmented, pretty, and unique they are ♥ Please check them out and support them!
