January Favorites!

January has been the month of trying out new makeup products. New year new makeup?

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Spotlights in Opal 
I got this in a giftset along with a travel sized Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Opal, which fell out of my hands and shattered into a million unsalvageable pieces. I'm still upset about it because it was so beautiful. Anyways, the liquid version is amazing. I like to apply it after my foundation and it just gives you a lit from within type of glow. It's stunning. Becca highlighters are definitely worth the hype. (Still mourning the loss of the pressed version).

Covergirl Trunaked Eyeshadow Palette in Nudes
This palette is basically a dupe of the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. I think UD eyeshadows are slightly superior; however; these shadows are actually good. They have great pigmentations for drugstore shadows. This palette is great for an everyday look and I enjoy using it. You definitely need to use a primer if you want them to show up as beautifully as they look in the pan. I love that more drugstore brands are coming out with great palettes.

Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Waterproof Mascara
My perfect mascara needs to give me length, volume, no clumps, and most importantly it needs to be waterproof because no one wants racoon eyes. This mascara ticks all the boxes for me. It makes my lashes look amazing. Once it's on it's not going anywhere. Bioderma doesn't even get rid of it all; you need an oil-based product to take it off. The only thing that makes me sad about this mascara is the price. If anyone knows of a drugstore equivalent of this mascara let me know.

Giorgio Armani Eye Tint in #11 Rose Ashes
I've heard a lot of hype about this product. I was hesitant about trying this product because liquid eyeshadows kinda scared me. Applying this product is a breeze as long as you do one eye at a time. The color reminds me a little of MAC Rubenesque (which is a longtime favorite) but more gold, shimmery and pigmented. I would say the Eye Tints are worth the hype.

YSL Volupté Tint in Oil in #4 I Rose You
I got this for Christmas. It's a pretty pink shade. I love using this on no makeup days because it moisturizes my lips while giving them a hint of color. The shade  on my lips reminds me of the Dior Addict Lip Glow but more glossy. I like that when the glossiness wears off it leaves a stain and just makes my lips look healthy.

Aqua Di Gioia
This fragrance was never on my wishlist. I was just browsing the travel sized perfumes at Sephora and this one smelled amazing. I'm very picky with scents because I don't like anything that's too strong or floral. This one is a light, fresh scent that is perfect for everyday. It's not overpowering. It's probably a summer fragrance but I'm just going to wear it all the time.

Reply 1988
I loved this k-drama. I loved all the characters. All my ships have sailed. The person I wanted to be the husband ended up being the husband. Sunwoo and Bora are my otp and I love how their story turned out. The ending bothers me because I wanted to see what happened to everyone in present day. Overall, it was a great story but it needed a better ending. I loved that it focused more on family and friendship.

Reply 1994
I've heard that people don't like this one as much as the original Reply 1997. I actually like this one more than Reply 1997. If I had to rank all three installments of the Reply series I would go with 1988, 1994 and then 1997. Back to Reply 1994. Watching this just makes me happy. Spoiler alert! In my mind it wouldn't make sense if Trash Oppa wasn't the husband. From the beginning I thought it was obvious that he would be the husband. Na Jung loved him the entire time. Chilbong didn't stand a chance. I shipped Trash and Na Jung from the first episode. Also, episode 18 of Reply 1988 spoils the fact that Kim Jae Joon is Trash aka the husband. I loved all the characters and the friendships. I love that we get to see everyone in present day as well.

Running Man
I've heard of this reality/variety show long before I started watching it. I always heard about the Monday couple but never knew what it meant. Now I love the Monday couple as much as everyone else. I started watching it by watching the episode where Henry Lau was a guest because I just wanted more Henry in my life lol. I ended up loving the main cast. If you want to watch something that will make you laugh watch Running Man. I love it.

Don't Worry, Dear - Lee Juck (Reply 1988 OST)
