Review and Haul: Blanc To Noir (with NYX products)

Hi everybody~

Today I'll be doing a Blanc To Noir review and haul. I recently got in touch with my inner impulsive shopaholic so I ended up spending a lot of money in the last 2 months.

Blanc to Noir is an online only store which currently stocks brands such as NYX, Rimmel London, Sally Hansen, Milani and more! When I made my order, the only brands available were Sally Hansen, NYX and Rimmel London. So the brands are subject to change.

I ordered on the 23rd of June and my package totalled to around $31 dollars. The shipping was $9 and my actual order around $21. (This is a very belated post!)

They had a 30% off ALL NYX products and I just couldn't say no. Silly me because the next week, they were having a 40% off ALL NYX products sale... Good things come to those who wait.

Liebster Award + Versatile Blogger Award + Beauty Blogger Tag

Seems like I'm back early for a post I've never done before!

Hi everybody! I was nominated by the lovely Sakuranko for the Versatile Blogger Award and the Beauty Tag. While Shirley C nominated me for the Liebster Award! Both prestigious nominations that I'm extremely thankful for.

I find Blogger awards a great way for bloggers to support each other and find wonderful blogs!

Liebster Award

Rules of the Award:
1. Each nominee must answer 11 questions that were asked by the blogger that nominated them.
2. You must choose 11 bloggers who have under 200 followers to pass the award onto.
3. Then come up with 11 questions that they will answer
4. Go to their page and tell them that you have nominated them
5. No tag backs 

My answers to Shirley's questions!

Q1. What inspired you to start blogging?
I've started learning how to use makeup since the age of fourteen when I would watch my sister do hers. I guess throughout the years, I have developed a love for all things beauty. I would read blog posts about the newest products, reviews, tutorials etc and I wanted to do that. Sharing my love for beauty was something I wanted to do.

Q2. What are the top three blogs you follow?

That's so extremely hard since I do love to read each and every single blog I follow. But I look forward to new posts by Sparkle Apple, Cominica and ekiBlog
Q3. If you were stranded on an island for a week, what are three things you would bring with you?

Useful items of course! Sunscreen, purified water and protective clothing.

Review: Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer in #3 Transparent (에뛰드 하우스 님프 광채 볼류머)

Hello everybody!

Today I'll be reviewing the Etude House Nymph Aura volumer in #3 Transparent. This was actually one of the more expensive products I purchased at the Etude House Hong Kong Mongkok store. It was around 158 HK dollars, if I remembered correctly.

What is it? 
Have you ever watched a Korean drama and wondered how the actresses (and actors) have such dewy and healthy looking skin? The secret is a volumer! You can use it in a 1:3 ratio with your BB cream or foundation to promote a glowy look. Or you can use it alone on the highpoints of your face.

Nymph Aura Volumer is a multi-functional cream that maximizes the radiance and dewy glow on skin. Completes your look with a flawless finish with plumped and moisturized skin. Create a celebrity glow by mixing it with any liquid foundation, base, or BB cream to give skin a moist radiant look. Contains Argan Oil and Avacado Oil for anti-oxidant and skin elasticity care.
