Review & Rave: Stila Lip Glaze Stick

Product Description:
  • This is a lip glaze formula is a convenient, easy to use pencil stick form.
  • It sweet smell and tasty.
  • This has a moisturizing formula for hydration.
  • This has a shimmering and pearl gloss finish.
Where I purchased it:

Price: $5.49 (sale: $2)

Product Size: 3.2grams or 0.11oz

I love how this lip gloss is in a stick form. I makes it very easy to apply in a hurry. It allows you to be precise similar to a lip pencil except this is jumbo size. 

It is easily sharpen with a larger pencil sharpener.  The wooden pencil itself is really good quality. There is no splinter, the wood if very smooth after sharpening, which is a plus.

Product Review:
Product glides on easily. It is very hydrating and is not sticky. It has a high gloss appearance to it. 

The lip glazes I have a super glossy and shimmery, glitter appearance to them. So if you don't like that look then these aren't for you, but personally I love them.

These Stila lip glaze sticks has a really juicy sweet pleasant scent.

I find these more sanitary then their lip glazes in the platic tubes with the brush applicator.

Berry- A darkish purple plum color with small silver specs of glitter
Vallina-A nudish peach color with iridescent glitter
Apricot-A light peachy color with silver glitter
Grapefruit-A bright blueish pink color with iridescent glitter


How I apply it:
I just use this product like a lip liner. I just "draw" it onto my lips. The lip glaze stick is very low maintenance and great on the go or when you are in a rush.

Would I repurchase? Yes,
I love this lip glaze stick. It is very smooth, hydrating, and gives a very glossy and sparkly look.

Where I purchased it: Ebay (from Korea)

Price: $20

Product Size: 30 grams

Packaging:  The Skinfood Salmon Brightening Eye Cream Packaging is super cute! It

Product Review:
Has a light pinkish color to the cream. It has a subtle pleasant sweet floral scent. The cream itself is not too thick or sticky. It is a light consistency and is easy to work with. It sinks into my skin pretty quickly. It is a little greasy after application, but it only last for a couple of minutes until it absorbs into my skin. I really like this cream.


How I apply it:
I dab it on my middle finger and dot it under my eye area and pat the cream into my skin.

Would I repurchase? Yes.  I find that it plumps and smooths my under eye wrinkles nicely. As for my dark circle, it does successfully slightly lightens my dark circles, but personally I don't have much. The only con is unless you live in Asia you have to purchase this online.

Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint Front Packaging


Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint comes in a simple yet cute bottle. The color on the bottle correspond with the tint color. The applicator is a normal round shaped doe foot applicator that applies the tint well .  It didn't slide off the applicator.  The bottle has a small opening inside which scrapes off extra product on the brush and prevents you from glob on a lot of the tint on your lips. I little of this stuff goes a long way, it is really pigmented once activated.

Product Review:
I did a water test with this product and it is very long wearing.  It lasts about 5 hours on my lips until very noticeable fading, this is pretty long lasting.  It isn't overly drying, but since it doesn't moisturize my lips, I like to apply a clear gloss on top for hydration.

The product is creamy a little watery, and has a cherry cough medicine smell to it. The smell doesn't linger, it disappears after a couple of seconds.

**Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint - Red#1:
This a a really dramatic bright red color. I prefer a more natural color, the peach tint better, but that is just my personal preference. 

**Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint - Peach#3:
This gives a natural color when applied lightly, but you can also build up the color if you want a more dramatic look. It is a pinkish peach color. It is cooling when applied.
 Swatched:  Red #1 and Peach #3

 Tint applied: Red #1 and Peach #3

Tested longevity of Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint under water while rubbing the product.

 Directions for application. Product expiration date 6 months after use.

How I apply it:
I Dip the applicator in product and glide on your lips. Don't use too much, a little goes a long way.  It takes a couple of seconds for the lip tint to activate.

Tint color: Peach #3

Tint Peach#3 and Clear Lip Gloss

Tint color: Red #1

Tint Red#1 and Clear Lip Gloss

Would I repurchase?
Maybe,  just because I would prefer this in a tube form for a more sanitizing application.  I am glad I tried this. A little of this tint goes a long way, so the product will last me a while before I use it up. The tint does last a long time and gives my lips a natural look(peach #3 - when used very lightly).

Update: I recently, tried the Red#1 tint on my cheeks, and I really like it. It looks really natural and blends really well on my skin. I just dabbed it on my cheeks and blended out with my fingers.

Review: Kit Kat Cola and Lemon Soda - Limited Edition

This is a limited edition by KitKat made by Nestle from Japan. It comes in 2 flavors Cola and Lemon Soda. 

This comes in a duo pack. 

Product Review:
The crunchy wafers and soft chocolate melts and melds together nicely. I love how the Kitkat is not too sweet. It is just right.
Each packet is 100 calories too, not too shabby. 

Cola Flavor 
Comes in a red and white wrapping. Has a creamy light brown beige color.  It smells like Cola soda and is slightly tangy with little bursts of fizzle, like soda!  The tang is not too strong, but there is a little tangy after taste, personally I like it, but the flavor wasn't as extraordinary or unique as I expected.

Lemon Flavor
This comes in a yellow and red wrapping.
This has a creamy light yellow lemony color. It smells and taste like lemon cake.  It has a stronger tangy and sour taste to it compared to the Cola Flavor one. Personally, I like the lemon flavor, it doesn't smell or taste too overly powerful.

Overall I liked it.  I prefer the Lemon Soda flavor over the Cola Flavor Kitkat, it was like eating lemon cake.  (^__^) mmmmm
