Labiotte | Wine Lip Tint & Lipstick { RD01 & RD03 }

Happy Friday everyone! The weekend is just right around the corner. I can't believe Summer is almost over... it honestly felt like yesterday was just the beginning of June. Summer 2017 flew by extremely fast for me... I didn't do anything exciting this Summer except work, work, and work. 

So you know how people say "I would love a glass of wine right now" when they're under stress or very upset about something? Well, you can bring a bottle of wine with you everywhere you go.... on your lip! Although I don't drink wine, I'm more than happy to wear it instead. 
Around a month ago, I was browsing through Yesstyle (an online store that sells a large selection of Asian cosmetic products) and I came across the brand: L a b i o t t e. I was super intrigued by their love for wine especially the packaging! I knew I had to somehow get my hands on their lip products. 

Without further ado, let's jump right into the review

Missha | M Magic Cover Cushion SPF 50+ / PA +++ NO. 23

Yesterday, I posted this review on Korean-Beauty Amino (an app for everyone who loves Korean Beauty from skincare, makeup, and haircare) and it gained a lot of good responses! My review got a chance to be featured alongside with other great reviews as well! Not bad despite the fact that I joined the platform just 2 days ago, haha.
If you've read my past reviews, I consistently talk about how much I enjoy wearing light coverage because minimal is more  for me. This time around, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try a medium - full coverage cushion compact.

This product is no stranger to some of you guys because it's literally the MOST raved cushion compacts on the Korean beauty market right now.

Glossier | Generation G "CAKE" & "ZIP Sheer Matte Lipstick

I was in the city yesterday and I stopped by the Glossier showroom in Lafayette, NYC to see what the buzz was all about. When I first heard about Glossier coming to NYC, I thought it was going to be a simple cute walk-in store...turns out the Glossier showroom is all the way up in a penthouse! When you first walk into the place, there will be someone at the entrance to greet you and ask if you're going up to the showroom (Glossier's offices are located below the showroom). You have to take the elevator up to the penthouse and holy cow, it was the most smoothest elevator ride I have ever been in. At one point, I even thought we were stuck in the elevator because I didn't feel it or hear it moving. 

Glossier is a new trend brand that's super in right now for the hot season due to their skincare and makeup. I've read a few articles about Glossier on Influenster (mainly about their skincare) and... I really didn't understand why so many beauty gurus were raving about Glossier. 
So, I decided to venture out to see what the hype is all about.

Laneige | BB Cushion - Pore Control SPF 50+ PA+++ #21

After my last review on Kicho Aroha Glow CC Cushion (you can read about it here), I knew I had to invest my money in another cushion. I can't believe I am so, so late on these portable cushion compacts while everybody else owns about 20+ of em' already. I didn't think cushion compacts were that big of a deal back then--- I simply viewed cushion compacts as just foundation + skincare mixed in together in a round compact with a sponge applicator. However, I have officially converted to using only cushion compacts now. I still use my foundation here and there when I'm indoor in the morning time and go out at night time. 

One of the reasons why I purchased this was because of Morgan (She's also known as "TheBeautyBreakdown" on Youtube). She did a thorough review of this cushion compact on her channel and I immediately knew I had to get my hands on this. 
If you're a fan of Amore Pacific CC cushion, you're most likely going to like this Laneige BB cushion because Laneige is under the same umbrella brand as Amore Pacific. 

Here's the perfect cushion for the Summer season:

Tatcha | Cameilla Cleansing Oil + Water Cream +Aburatorigami Blotting Papers

The other day as I was doing a facial on this lovely client of mine, she asked me: "What is your favorite Skincare brand?" I paused for a long time to think, then I said, "I don't know."
I do have my fair share of current and past brands that I personally enjoy using and would recommend to my friends... but none of em' keeps me at "wow" for a long time. Does that make sense? 
The following night, I separated my skincare products into two groups: "most enjoyable" and "just okay". I thoroughly thought through that question with each products on how it would fit into my "top favorite"--- 
I guess it's because there are so many skincare brands on the market (as well as overly hyped products on social media) that I may have fail to notice a skincare brand that could have been a potential top favorite brand. 

With all that being said, I can confidently say: " T a t c h a is my current top favorite Skincare brand. " 
P.S: All opinions are my own. I am not being paid to write this review. 

I have tried a lot of Tatcha products but today's review will mainly focus on:
