Urban Decay Coverage Concealer

It's been awhile that I have done a beauty shopping and review.  I'm excited that I get to shop from Sephora again.  I had $15 e-card from Sephora, so I made an effort to get something that I want.  I realized that I was down on my concealer and finished using my Marc Jacob concealer.  Unfortunately, I didn't have an opportunity to review on Marc Jacob concealer. I really enjoy using the Marc Jacob concealer the coverage was great but the pricing was expensive.  So when I had the opportunity to look for a concealer I had to try to find something reasonable and that it has a good coverage just like Marc Jacob.  I decided to search around and decided to seattle for Urband Decay Naked Skin Weightless Coverage Concealer.


My Impression: 
I have used the Urban Decay coverage concealer a few times and I really enjoy the coverage that provided so far.  The concealer is not too thick and it's weightless that gives me a matte finish.  The only downsize is that the concealer gets dry easily fast, so I have to blend fast using my foundation brush.  The packaging is really nicely package in a clear plastic tube that comes with a sponge applicator.  This concealer contain 5 ml/0.16 fl oz retailing at $28.00 USD

What this product does: 
This concealer from Urban Decay lets you cover imperfections without looking covered up. It’s easily blendable and buildable, giving you even coverage with a luminous, demi-matte finish. Ultra-lightweight, this high-tech liquid formula never settles into fine lines, and it melds on for a no makeup look while full coverage in an instant.

This concealer is enriched with Matrixyl 3000, which contains peptides to support the skin’s youthful appearance and elasticity, and Japanese green tea revitalizes and helps reduce the look of fine lines. It’s infused with Litchiderm™—derived from lychee fruit—which protects against dehydration, while sodium hyaluronate helps the skin attract and retain moisture, resulting in a brighter-looking complexion.

Sole Patches Review


The holidays are approaching and with many holiday events sole patches are the way to go.  There are times after wearing my high heels my feet tend to get sore after a long day at a party.  Sole Patches are a thin cushioned patch that sticks onto the ball of your foot and provides great comfort that can last for many hours.  It's painless and provides great support.  If you struggle like I do and wear heels without support, Sole Patches are a life saver.  

About the Product:
Sole Patches are a thin cushioned patch that sticks onto the ball of your foot. The cushioning is made of Poron by Rogers Corporation, a special material that's shock-absorbing, antimicrobial, anti-odor, and has moisture-repelling properties, making it a perfect solution to avoiding having sore feet at the end of the day in uncomfortable shoes!

What does this product:
  • Eliminate the pain and soreness you once felt after walking around uncomfortable shoes. 
  • Prevents feet from sliding forward.
  • Medical-grade adhesive is super durable and will withstand up to 24 hours of wear, giving you the flexibility to change into multiple pairs of shoes. 
Directions:
  • Make sure foot is clean and dry. 
  • Flex your foot.  This will ensure pad sticks to optimal surface area. 
  • Aim for the ball of your foot, the heel or wherever you find pain/soreness to be problem. OPTIONAL: Stick to shoe for permanent fixation
  • Remove adhesive backing from Sole Patches and apply.

Hope you get to try this Sole Patches and hope it'll eliminate your feet from getting pain and soreness after a long event.

TsuruTonTan Udon Noodle



During Thanksgiving I had an opportunity to try this new place called TsuruTonTan Undon Noodle, located in the heart of Union Square.  This resturant is specialize on their hand made Undon Noodles and I was eager and excited to try this place once it opens.  During the summer time I passed this place a few times while this resturant was doing their renovation.  This place gets very busy and I highly suggest that you should make a reservation before hand. My husband and I started with this Smashed Cucumber Salad, it taste very refreshing and has an excellent crunch after each bite.  Our next appetizer we ordered Tatsuta Fried Chicken, it's nicely fried and the chicken is very juicy.  The bite was just phenomenal and I don't mind ordering another plate of this.  Onto our Undon dishes orders, my husband ordered the Curry Undo, as for myself I ordered the Uni Udon. I tried a few bites of my husband Curry and it was pretty good, especially on a cold winter day it's a perfect udon dish to warm me up.  As for the Uni Udon, I'm not too keen on this dish, wish that they can amplified the uni instead of the udon.  The uni was fresh but personally I think eating this on a hot summer day is better than eating it during the winter time. Also you can extra large your udon without additional charge, but it's eat in only.  I personally and highly recommend this place and I hope any New Yorkers out there gets an opportunity in checking out this place.  I hope I'll return to this place again soon to try other stuff.

Holiday 2016 Wishlist

Since the Christmas holiday is approaching, I want to share some of my wishlists.  I tend to like to find things there are practical to use for myself.  I hope you'll find these items to be helpful whenever you are shopping.  I'm not much of a shopper, but I tend to find a few good deals when it's on sale.  I like to shop for things that I can use throughout the year and that it's long lasting. Majority of the items that I chose are less than a $100.00. 



Here are my holiday wishlists:
I personally believe that these items are really nice and personal gifts to your close family or friends.  Within Your Wreath Necklace is something nice to have that add a nice touch to your outfits each day.  As for the Shisedo Foundation Brush this is my holy grail for awhile and I've been using this, it provides a great coverage and flawless look.  I have a few Ju-Ju-Be items and I can not live without them, this Be Quick Wristlet Handbag is a great way to store your makeup essentials and other personal items whenever you are on a go. You can quickly toss this in your purse and it helps as an purse organizer.  Les Nereides - In the Moonlight Purple Flower with Heart Branch Short Necklace is a French Jewerly company. I'm really in love with this piece, it's nice and dainty that goes great with causal outing. Hopefully one day I'll own some of their few pieces in the future. I also enjoy a new coffee mug since I'm a coffee drinker and I think these Starbucks - Kid and Adult Polar Bear Mug Set is just adorable to add in to my holiday wishlist.  I always enjoy shopping for new blushes to add a bit of color to my face and I really love the Paul and Joe color compact + refill. I almost hit pan with this and I really like how the color provides a nice little pop whenever I'm going out.  Lastly this Les Nereides - on the Moonlight Pink Flower Earrings is just stunningly beautiful to add in my holiday collection.  I wouldn't mind wearing this on a lovely spring day.  

Hope this gives you an idea what to shop for during the holiday and I hope this gift ideas have help you in someways. What is your holiday wishlist?
