I went in for ONE item, and left with a new skincare line =/ I wanted to the try Laneige Whitening Spot Treatment, but is sadly discontinued =(
Items are from the new IOPE Trouble Clinic line. They promised it would help old and new blemishes =) Especially since I break out during the special times of the month, they suggested me to only use the items during that time ONLY. I really hope it works!!
I got the Cleansing Foam which has some antibacterial? crap in it...and the Essence, which can be used as a spot treatment in those certain prone areas ONLY.
Amore Pacific IOPE Trouble Clinic Cleansing Foam 5.1fl.oz/150ml. Mild cleansing foam soothes and relaxes to improve the skin. Invisible micro-beads gently and completely remove waste matters that cause trouble. Natural eucalyptus oil and riclosan ingredients relax skin and help freshen and cleanse the skin.
Amore Pacific IOPE Trouble Clinic Treatment Essence 1.4fl.oz/40ml. Professional and intensive care for trouble skin areas. IOPE's own panduratin ingredients and the ingredients for diminishing the traces of any trouble and prevent deep, red trouble spots. Highly-enriched brown rice extracts and natural eucalyptus oil work fast on trouble areas to help stop trouble from further damaging skin.
They tossed in a tote bag (super cute), some face towels, and the Laneige SPF 40 day lotion.
I just started some new organic stuff to control my blemishes, so if that doesn't work...i surely hope this stuff will =| Will update =D
Right now, I have class every night until 10 pm =( It sucks because I hit mad ass traffic going to class, which starts around 530. I hate LA traffic!!!!

It comes in the super cute boxed packaging. Obviously not as sturdy as compacts. And I'm always afraid it'll get wet and start falling apart =X
Has a very cute matching brush that is utterly USELESS =|And...the color is OOOHHH-SOOO light that it doesn't even show up on me. That swatch was taken with many many MANY strokes!Overall...I love the smell. OH it's such a nice fragrance!! But, it is USELESS for me. I don't see it giving me a 'warm, happy glow' as it claims. BOO!
I also recently purchased MAC's Peaches blush...which is VERY bright and almost more orange/coral than it is peach. So, still on the search. Any reccs???
Went to my favorite 'hole-in-a-wall, ghetto-fab and cheap' sushi place =)

What a week! Had a big assignment due, had to finish half of my final project, PLUS take my final ALL ON FRIDAY! I'm glad that's over with!!
Rocky doesn't want me to study =/ All he wants to do is PLAY!!!
Got to Ulta to buy some stuff...and this was one item that I thought was cool! I don't have any eye cream with SPF...and I don't know why! I use my Shiseido which I love, so I guess I just keep using it. Anyhoo....I picked up this Sunblock stick because it has a Spf 60+! I believe it is great to use for the eyes because...if it's gentle enough for a BABY, it should work great for our eye area =) Gotta avoid those wrinkles!
BB CREAM REVIEW
I also purchased the Dimond Collection's Perfect Cover, which is like a concealer.
First, the Diamond BB Cream...
Not my favorite. It has a slightly gray-ish color...but luckily it is quite sheer/light so it doesn't have a strong gray color when I use it, but out of the tube it doesn't look very appealing. Again...very sheer, so not something I would use often. Only when my skin is quite clear.
Second, the Diamond Perfect Cover. It has a SUPER STRONG orange/yellow coloring. Luckily, it blends right into my skin. VERY SHOCKING at first. It covers OKAY. It tends to crease during mid-day, which I really hate.
All in all, I'm glad I didn't purchase LARGE sizes of these Skin79 BB Creams, and I got the mini set instead. Although I only got about 5ish aplications from the small tube, it is WAYY better than spending $15-20ish on a bottle that I don't like =/ Dr. Jart Black Label is still my HG!
1/2 face Dimond
1/2 face Dr. Jart
No sun out today...soooooo, my face has been holding up well on both sides. Coverage wise, Dr. Jart stays PUT! Dimond just slowing starts fading or something. Doesn't stay on as well.
Lastly, Dimond has ZERO SPF =( Bummer!! That's the final deal breaker = no future purchase.

SOOooOOOooO, this is my first official MAC purchase =)
I loved the packaging of Style Warrior, so I thought I would place a purchase online, and just ended up buying EVERYTHING else I've always wanted to try =)
My Style Warrior items. I feel like I should have gotten a few more items =X
Hopefully I'll be back to posting soon =)
This week was Rocky's trip under the knife. So I've been watching him like a HAWK, making sure he's not jumping and running like a crazy dog everywhere, which has been DIFFICULT!!!
He seems fine, and still laying FLAT ON THE FLOOR =D Super cute!!!
Have a fab weekend everyone!!!!

GOAL OF THE NIGHT: GET BIRTHDAY BOY DRUNK OFF HIS A$$!
Even though he's thin, he can out drink EVERYONE! It's CRAZY!!! But he surely got wasted that night =D

Rocky's current sleeping position:
Then he tried to squeeze into his bed!!! HAHAHAHHADANGGG he's sooooooooooooooooo big now! Look at how cutey and teeny he was before!

Been quite busy.
School + Work + Rocky. Also, internet isn't working at my casa anymore =( Really hard to get some internet time for myself. Usually it's for work or school.
Baby haul. Got an extra DrJart Black Label (not pictured), and decided to venture out to Skin79's stuff. So, I decided to get the set =) Super cute, but also pretty tiny. I haven't used any yet, but I will soon, and hopefully like at least ONE of them. Though, I've been really digging Skinfood Aloe. I have to get #2 next time! #1 is okay, but a bit light.
I did a TEENNYY haul at Sephora during their random 15%. Should be coming SOOONNN!!!

Work Work Work.
Here's Rocky with me at work...
ENTIRELY FLAT on the floor...TOOOOO CUTE!!
The first time I saw him do this, I was like WTF? Is that normal???
So, finally caught him doing it with a camera near by =)
Ordered some Sephora stuff, but RIGHT BEFORE the 15% =(
Full review on Laneige Star White Line soon. Still using it...unsure if I LOVE it or not. Some pros and cons.

I also got the Makeup Remover with that cool pump =) I figured, if anything, I can reuse the bottle. Put some Lancome Makeup Remover in there or something. So far, so good. Not IN LOVE with it, but it does it's job without the oily residue...so that's a definite PLUS!
Got the free rose box thingy. Some awesome samples that I'm excited to try! I've been on the search for an eye cream with higher than SPF 10 or whatever that doesn't leave that sunscreen residue, so hopefully Laneige will answer my calling!
I wanted more lashes but they didn't hav the style I was looking for. Bummer!!! But...I probably didn't really neeeeeeed any more lashes 0=)
Went down the street to Guppy's to have a quick bite. But of course knowing me and J, we ended up ordering WWAAAAYYYYYYY more than we kud handle =X It was delicious either way!!
Strawberry + Mango SMMAAALLLLLL size...wtf??? I guess we should have gotten the Cup size instead. But the condensed milk was Oh-SO good! I'm def making this at home all summer long this year =)
Spent the whole afternoon out and had to leave lilo ole Rocky at home by himself for the first time =(
LOOOOOOK AT THOSE EYES!!!!!
Poor baby was crying so much =**************(
Then when I got home, played with him...
and he knocked the f*ck out!!!
HAHAHAHH too kute!
Dontcha just love his sleeping position????

And they look quite similar to MAC's HELLO KITTY lashes!!!!
So, yeah...they have been my GO-TO lashes right now. VERY easy to put on because they are just half. But def not as dramatic or full...but very natural =)
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
If anyone wants any, I just added them to my store =) Sharing the love!
Hope everyone had a fab v-day!
I spent mine with Rocky =D hehehehehehhe

NOW...ON WITH THE GOODS!!
MAC Holidazzle Pink Eyes Palette (October 2003)
Smashbox Smashing Loose Eyeshadow
Philosophy The Little Black Book Palete
YAY! I wanted this set but was hesistant to purchase it. I really just wanted the 181 and Slimshine. But at the price of JUST the 181, you get all these other goodies! Great deal =)
Ulta FF20% & L'oreal BOGO:
I've been meaning to purchase their Fibre Optic brush for quite some time now. Just never got around ordering it. Picked up a couple mineral blushes, shadows, perfecting powders, and a cream liner.
First photo was in whatever lighting. Second is with sunlight.
I can't really say that I would purchase this again (if I ever run out) because I don't think it does anything special. Only moisturizes, but a lot of other things just moisturizes, too. But I do like that it is oil-free! So that is def a plus.
I'm planning on trying out Laneige's skincare lines but I'll probably use this as an EXTRA moisturizer, if needed.
I still needa do a post about my trip up north! Everyone have a fab weekend!
