Review of Tmart 12 Piece Professional Brush Set in Purple

Hello Everyone
Tmart ( recently sent me a 12 piece brush set to be reviewed. This was the first time an item was sent to me. Even though this item was sent, you will get nothing but my honest opinion and impressions.

The brushes come in a convenient roll-up travel case. I love that the set is purple!
The first thing I check when getting new brushes is softness and texture.  There is nothing worst than a rough make up brush. With these brushes I was pleasantly surprised, they were soft and felt good on the skin, which is very Very important.

I usually rough up my brushes first to get the fall out hairs out of the way. Happy to see that there is no fall out here. The set comes with 12 brushes and a metallic purple roll up case, it doesn’t mention it on the listing, but I believe these are Synthetic. I prefer synthetic brushes because they can be used with creams, liquids, oil-based products. This set kind of reminds me of my Bubbi Brush set because of the case and the handles.

I used the powder brushes to either set my make up or for powder blush (currently using Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Finishing Powder). I don’t use them for creams or liquids because they are on the fluffier side so for me it’s best for powders and blending. I prefer the Beauty Blender or a flat-top brush to apply the liquid foundations or BB creams.  But these powder brushes are good at what they are made to do.

The brushes have a wood and alloy handle
The Fan-Brush can be used to sweep away eyeshadow fall out or excess powder.

The Oblique eyebrow brush is not really what I pictured, usually you would think the slanted brush.  I actually use the smaller brushes mostly for eyeshadows, the smaller ones are great for detail. I do wish the Lip Brush was a bit thicker.

As for the smudge brush (sponge) I usually use these brushes for apply glitter or correcting mistakes when I don’t have q-tips. 

Awesome Price, and Great Quality for the price
If you want a good starter set or travel kit or if you just like to try and collect brushes, then you may want to try these.

I am always excited to discover products for a good deal, I don’t believe a brush needs to cost $20 plus each to work properly. Elf studio brushes is a good example of this. These brushes are pretty and come at a very low price.

You can get the 12 piece Professional brush set here: Tmart Make Up Brushes

I haven’t had any experience purchasing from t-mart yet, so if you do buy something, please let me know how it goes.

Thank You for reading ^.^

Review Geo Princess Mimi Apple Green (Bambi Series) Contact Lens from Pinky Paradise

Hope everyone had a great St. Patrick's Day, in the spirit of green day I will be doing a review on Geo Princess Mimi Apple Green Circle Lens.

The Specs:
Diameter: 15.0 mm
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.7mm
Life Span: 1 year

This is my first time ordering circle lens as well as my first time ordering form
It was a very quick and painless process and I was very pleased.  Shipping from Malaysia to the US was very fast ( I chose Fedex)

The Package came very secure and they include a free lens case with every pair.
They also had authenticity stickers on the vials (GEO).

I originally just wanted to get brown circle lens to try out but ended up adding these last minute.

I was actually surprised at their size when I first opened them, I thought they would be a little bigger.
Probably because my prescription lenses are much larger due to my astigmatism.
I actually wasn't sure how this would fit and feel on my eyes since I have very high astigmatism.
I was pleasantly surprised to fine that I could wear them  with no problem and without them moving around like I thought they would.

I am used to wearing very thick, large contacts for my high astigmatism
These were very comfortable, compared to my other lenses and compared to wearing none at all. Sometimes I'd forget I was wearing these

The color changes with the lighting, sometimes it's very subtle sometimes it pops.
I don't think it's meant to look natural, it does give a slight enlarging effect.
I was really hoping they would be bigger since I chose the largest size.
It has a nice gradient that blends to your eye-color.

I am hoping to try more contact lenses in the future now that I know I can wear plano!
I will also be trying some toric ones after I get the final prescription from my doctor :)

Thanks for reading ^.^

Review of TONYMOLY Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream (exfoliate)

I wish it was Spring break..
So today I was in need of an exfoliator, I realized I haven't exfoliated in a long while.

I went for TONYMOLY Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream. I didn't want to open it because of the adorable packaging  (I'm such a hoarder)
It was bigger than I imagined, fits in the palm of my hand, pretty much medium apple size.

It comes in the form of a lovely Green Apple

It boasts  3 in 1 functions: Massage, Moisturizing Pack and Exfoliating
 Peel = Exfoliation
comes with 80g of product

Special Ingredients:
Green Apple Extract 
AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid)
Papaya Extract

The Green Apple extract contains Vitamin A, B1, and C
these vitamins help with blemishes and aging skin.
Alpha Hydroxy Acid helps naturally exfoliate skin by loosening dead skin cells.
The Pectin in the apple ingredient also helps with reducing pore size

This is why I love korean skincare, I love reading the labels for the ingredients. There is so much variety and they are usually multi-functional

  How do you use it?
Apply to the face (avoid eyes and lips)
Massage for 1-2 minutes 
Leave on for 30 seconds
Then Massage again to loosen the dead skin cells 
Wash off with warm Water

After opening you get a tub of white cream
The texture feels smooth with a sprinkle of very tiny grains like fine sand, but you could miss it if you weren't feeling for it.

The Smell:
Smells like Green Apple of course!
It's light and not overwhelming

After using it my skin felt smoother and definitely moisturized.

Why is it important to exfoliate?
It removes the dead skin cells we naturally shed revealing smoother skin.
Without exfoliating the dead skin cells can clog your pores.
It promotes even skin-tone by helping the skin regenerate faster, the dark spots and blemishes get shed with the old skin, leaving you with fresh smooth skin.

If you are looking for a gentle exfoliator that moisturizes, TonyMoly Appletox is worth giving a try. Its great for dry skin, or if your skin is too sensitive for the tougher exfoliators
Plus it looks super cute on your vanity or bathroom counter.
