Amore, Amore, Amore!
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!!!!

On the search for a PEACH blush....

On my attempts to find a nice PEACH blush, I decided to try Benefit's Georgia.

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 =)
Gin Sushi in Pasadena

LOVE...THIS...PLACE =) They have lots of cooked dishes.

Lobster Special - Octobus Roll - Dragon Roll (Salmon w/Spicy Tuna)**DROOLS**

Got some tempura as well. Broccoli????For dessert...
Went down Colorado to 21 Choices. Fav place for yogurt. Better than those self-serve crap that's been popping up at EVERY block!!!!

Review - Skin79 Diamond BB Cream

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!

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!

Today's experiment:
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.
