Get Ready With Me Video

Today, I am coming to you with my first GRWM video on my channel! WOOHOO!
I have never done this kind of thing, as I am not a big fan of GRWM videos myself. It is simply because it is like I am sneaking into people's houses and watch them put on makeup... It is awkward!!! That is a viewer's point that I take. Also I never thought that someone would actually be interested in how I normally put on makeup and talk about random stuff.
But it seems like that is what people want, I mean they want to see other people put on makeup like they would everyday and hear about stuff that they normally don't put in their usual tutorials, monthly favorites or hauls.
So I decided to give it a go.
Now, I can say that I had so much fun filming it because it is like you have a proper reason to talk to yourself. It was definitely a very good excuse for talking to myself out loud.

So I hope you enjoy this ChitChat Get Ready With Me video. :)

LUSH Boxing Day Sale Haul

Today's video is a LUSH haul from Boxing Day sale.

It was so crazy in the store, they had to hire a security guy!

Products mentioned:
Little Ro's Flowers Gift( Australian ver.)
   Ro's Argan Body Conditioner 45g
   Turkish Delight 45g
   Rose Jam Shower Gel 100g 
   Vanilla Dee Lite 100g
   Honey I Washed The Kids Soap 120g
   Gorgeous 10g
Rose Jam Shower Gel 500g
Reindeer Rock Soap 120g
Santa's Lip Scrub

Like I said in the video, handmade stuff is sometimes good, and other times bad. But I think it is reasonable if they improve and stabilise their product quality more, as we are paying money for those overpriced soaps and scents.
Not that I hate LUSH, but because they claim their scents and natural ingredients as their strength, we should get a fair quality, each time, every time as they are not cheap. 

Thanks for watching, have a good day!

Hey everyone!

As the title says, I want to talk about Loreal Paris' first international makeup contest!

So what they are doing is that they have a contest open to anyone, yes, open to amateurs and to professional makeup artists to express themselves all around the world!
When I heard about it, I thought it was too good to be true, but Chloe Morello announced that she is going to be the judge of Australian local contest, I was like "This is REAL!" and started thinking about it seriously. (If you don't know who she is, she is a big Aussie beauty youtuber and she is really really gorgeous inside and out! I personally met her only once but she gave me a super friendly hug! I'll never forget that...)

So today, I am coming to you with my entry video to the contest!

The video had to be less than 3 mintues and that includes the introduction, so I cut down a lot of product info, but if you are ever interested, I will make a detailed version of the tutorial sometime, so please let me know in the comments here or on YouTube. :)

Anyway, I thought I'd give it a shot in the contest, because...WHY NOT!?
I mean, I like the colors but I never did a super colorful tutorial because no one requested and I thought I was the only one who likes colors... Now I have a reason to use colors! Excellent excuse!
Also as I said in the video, I wanted to share this so that people with eye shapes and eyelids like mine feel more comfortable even though we are considered minorities and there are not much information out there about what to do with our eyes. I just want to encourage other people with monolids/heavy lids to go creative and have fun!
There are tricks like "peek-a-boo" in the video that only monolids and heavy lids can do. And I think it is quite fun and cute! Also we get a big flat canvas so we can REALLY be creative and have fun.
So I hope you enjoy this!

Empties and Review of January 2015

Here it is! My latter half of my Favorite and Empty video!

I couldn't edit shorter and make subtitles(for my Japanese viewers) in time so I had to split one video into two.
I always try to make videos short but I just can't seem to do it. I try to make the point clear but as I want to give you all the information, I just keep talking and videos end up being long...
What do you think of two separate videos? Would you prefer to watch one long video than two separate ones? If you have a comment, feel free to leave it here!

So here is the video!

Products mentioned:
Boots Caribbean Cocktail Barbados body lotion
Mary Kay TimeWise 3 in 1 Cleanser (Dry Skin)
Sukin Purifying Facial Mask
LUSH Turkish Delight
LUSH Celebrate Shower Gel
LUSH Celebrate Body Lotion
Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Black
Majolica Majorca Eyebrow Pencil (Slim)
Dejavu Lasting Fine Eyeliner in Black
DAISO Crystal Eyecolor in Cocoa

MK cleanser, Boots body lotion and Sukin mask.

L to R
Turkish Delight, Celebrate and Celebrate(shower gel)

DAISO Crystal Eyecolor in Cocoa
