[REVIEW] Witch's Pouch Banhana Mascara #01 Sweet Volume


Woop, almost missed it. Missed it, sorry. Since I was awarded with the Top 100 Beauty Blogs, I promised on my facebook page to post a review today. I'm still unsure why I was listed among those awesome bloggers but I'm very happy, not lying 'bout that XD .Anyhoo, before the day ends, I'll do a review post as promised.

I got this Witch's Pouch mascara from Hermo.my while browsing for new mascaras to try. There's two options, volume and length and I always go for volume every time I got a mascara. The price is quite cheap and it looks interesting considering I haven't heard about the brand before and "banhana" supposely referred to "banana" I guess? Let me explain further in the review section below.

Before that, here's a little details about this product:
Brand : Witch's Pouch
Origin : South Korea
Where to buy : Althea.kr



The wand is round and shaped like banana!

Not waterproof, disappear with a gentle rub.


1st pic : Without mascara
2nd pic : First coat
3rd pic : Second coat

I take a look at the name, it surely wasn't "banana" but "banhana" instead. Idk why but it certainly refers to the banana-shaped wand. To be honest, I really like the banana-shaped wand because it covers my eyelash from end to end. Of course not until the inner corner but it feels so nice when my eyelashes are coat evenly.

They had the silicon type of wand which the liquid won't stick onto the brush much and cause mess. It means that it won't overcoat the lashes and causes clump. I can say that it doesn't clump my eyelashes and separate it nicely too.

The mascara also claim to be non smudgeable which is true but it will flakes over time so watch out. I don't get heavy flakes but it is noticeable if you look into the mirror and there's a black flake under the eye and it doesn't look nice.

The mascara is not waterproof as you can see the test I did above however it lasts on quite well before it starts to flakes a little and it hold up my curl well too. It also doesn't have any bad smell to it.

The only downside is that it didn't give me much volume as I wanted and it took a few coats of mascara until I was satisfied with the result. Usually I would do about 4-5 coats to achieve the finish that I wanted.

Overall, I wasn't very disappointed considering that it was pretty cheap to compare with the quality, I could say that it was a good try. The wand is my favourite and the fact that it doesn't cause clump would make me rate it high.

[REVIEW] Banila co Prime Primer Photo Layer Powder #Naked Peach


Hello guys! 
This review suppose to be posted back then but I always forgot it every time!haha
However, I wanna say that I've been using this since the first time I got it, which is last December if I'm not wrong. I guess this loose powder is another popular product of Banila co aside from their prime primer and clean it zero balm. I'm in love with it of course because of the packaging..:D

I had a few loose powder before and it's from Innisfree, guess you knew which it is-I had both original and blur version. To be honest I didn't powder all over my face after wearing any cushion or BB because I find it easily caked my makeup however powder are very useful to smooth the lines on top of my eyelid and under my eyes. It lessen the probability of the foundation to crease.

Here are the details of this product.

Brand : Banila co
Origin : South Korea
Product Type : Loose Powder
Color : Naked Peach
Net Weight : 12g
Where to buy : Jolse , Koreadepart , Stylekorean











There are two colors of this powder which are Naked Peach and Pale Pink. When I got the Naked Peach, I thought it would be peachy in color but it looks more like pink to me. Even through the case, it is already visible that it was pink and not peach in color. However, I don't think the color has much function to it since it won't be showing on the face but I do think it give a little tone than normal white powder.

There is no scent to this powder and I can say that the powder texture is very fine, almost similar to the Innisfree No Sebum powder. It controls oil pretty well and what's great is that it prevent crease on my eyelid! It's been some time since I've used any eyelid primer because this powder does its job. I normally will apply this onto my eyelid and under my eyes to prevent creasing. So before applying any eyeshadow or cream shadow, I would put on this powder first and it would make my eyeshadows stays on well considering I had oily eyelid.

However, the downside of this powder is that it would caked up if applied throughout the face especially on oily zones so I would avoid applying this onto my face.

The packaging is nice, it has the jagged sides for twisting but I don't like the face that there are only four holes for the powder to get out of the case and I don't think the cover can be open at all(?) coz I tried but it's not working.

Overall, there are some pros and cons but I still like the powder because it helps prevent my crease on my eyelid :)

[REVIEW] Bbia Last Pen Eyeliner #Red Brown


Hi guys!
So today I'll be reviewing this pen eyeliner that I bought from testerkorea last December. This has been sitting in my folder since forever and I'm not sure why I just found out that I haven't review this yet but I tell you that this is my favourite eyeliner ever since I started using it.

Here's a little details for you;

Brand : Bbia
Type : Pen Eyeliner/Liquid Eyeliner
Color : Red Brown
Where to buy : Testerkorea, BeautyBoxKorea




1x swatch.


I always love brown eyeliner and I probably used about 90% brown eyeliner everyday and it is a must color for my eyeliner. I use black too but not so much or even I just bought one black recently after about a year without black eyeliner. I guess because brown color give me softer look than black liner so that's why I like brown color better on me.

A lot of brown eyeliner out there and I myself have tried so far turns a little darker, almost black on my eyes when I layered them up and I'm looking for something that wouldn't look dark no matter how many layers I applied and I found this.

Originally I was afraid of this Red Brown color turns too red for me but it is not! In fact, I was very pleasant on how the color turns on my eye because it has a little red undertone to it so whenever I layered it up, it won't turn dark but stay to its true color.

Another thing that I like about this eyeliner is that it dries quickly after applying and it doesn't smudge on me no matter how long I wear it. Furthermore, the eyeliner also didn't transfer onto my lid which happen to me with the 3CE eyeliner which you can view it my past review HERE.

The eyeliner is not waterproof but it is the type of eyeliner that when you rub it, it would "flakes" rather than smudge. Do you kind of get it? I'm terrible at explanation but too bad I don't have a picture to show an example of it.

There's also no scent to this eyeliner so no worries.

Overall, I would buy this again for sure and probably try the Burgundy next? coz I'm quite interested on seeing how it turn out on my eyes XD

[REVIEW] Tosowoong Makeon Dual Shaking Lip Tint/Spicy Gloss


Remember that Roserosehop sent me the Tosowoong Makeon Princess Season 3 Gel Eyeliner a while ago? They actually sent me along these three colors of Tosowoong Makeon Dual Shaking Lip Tint as well. I don't have any single idea what "spicy gloss" meant but I guess I do now..haha

Do check out Roseroseshop if you would like to purchase #kbeauty products! They offered wholesale too if you're interested in that and their price is definitely the lowest I've seen so far.

Before the review, here's a little bit about these lip tint;

Brand : Tosowoong
Product : Lip Tint
Volume : 5.7g each
Price : 5000won each or 4.63USD each
Where to buy : Roseroseshop

Out of the three name, idk why Orange is the one that sounds normal? haha



From top : Blood, Vampire and Orange.


These lip tint is actually oil mixed with the tint however it wasn't greasy just like a lot of oil tint however, as I said in my previous review, oil tint and my lip doesn't go well together since it creates uneven color on my lip. I can't even wearing gradient color with this.

After wearing these lip tints continuously for all three colors for lip swatches, my lips literally BURN! It was because of the "spicy gloss" that I was talking about which I guess is a mint(?). It was sooo strong that even after one application, you can already feel the burn so you can imagine me wearing all three T_T However, it doesn't burn forever but it takes time until the burning disappears.

Burning aside, I find that this lip tint makes my lips feels smoother. It feels like my lips is moisturized from all those burns (lol jk) but it definitely my lip lines lessen. It's not sticky at all and it feels plump even after it dries completely. The long lasting is really good as my normal makeup remover can't remove this completely even if I'm rubbing my lips really hard.

The color is really pigmented and it was actually brighter in real life compared to the picture above.
I would note than the vampire lip tint looks a little darker than in picture and my friend said that it was a pretty color. I would think it is pretty but I'll look grungy if I use it as a full lip color.

The lip tint smells a lot like mint chocolate, no kidding but it doesn't taste as good when I try to lick it from my lip since the mint was quite strong, so it's a little bitter(?) I guess?

Overall, aside from the fact that it burns, the lip tint is is quite good considering the pigmentation and long lasting. I would use it if the "spicy gloss" was removed from the formula.
