Update + My New Series!! (Try It Tuesday)

Hey musers,


I'm sorry it's been a while, I've been very busy with life, work and Youtube! I recently also hit my 100,000 subscribers mark on my channel, which I still can't believe (and I have a special video for it still on its way...). Anyway, thank you to every single one of you for your love and support over the years! From the bottom of my lil heart!


In case you haven't seen it, I finally put up a new vlog this morning! Come with us to a pretty Korean countryside wedding and meet some of our new friends in Seoul :)

Anyways! How have you guys been?

I recently started a new series called 'Try It Tuesday', where I try out and review one hot, trending or interesting beauty product each Tuesday on my main Youtube channel.

No longer 1 minute reviews.. but still in my mind it is! hehe
Concept remains: Informative but as quick and concise as possible.

Here's the introduction video about the series if you haven't seen it:

Basically every Monday, I will post two highly requested makeup items on my Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Then you guys vote for which one of the two you'd like me to review. The most voted product wins. And I review it! Video goes up the next day. Simple as that <33

In the series, I also give the product a rating out of 5, and state whether I would buy it again or not. My opinions are completely mine, the videos are not sponsored or biased, and I even list some online places you can purchase the products in the information bar.

In a nutshell, I created this series to help each one of you to become better informed consumers and to assist you in making wiser decisions with where to spend your hard-earned money. I wanted to make something very interactive where it's something I know YOU GUYS wanted to hear about, or were genuinely curious to know more about. I also take every one of your opinions, suggestions and questions seriously and answer as many as I can. 

(example of this interaction between me and you in this screenshot of my latest Try It Tuesday episode on the IOPE Air Cushion XP)

I answer as many of your individual questions as possible too! :)

So that's it!

Just make sure you're following me to add your say to the votes! ^_^

For the very first product in the series, you guys chose the Laneige BB Cushion [Pore Control] over the Banila Co CC Cream, which is one of the best sellers on the market at the moment. If you want to find out what I think of it, here ya go:

I was overwhelmed with all your responses to the new videos. I'm so happy to hear that so many of you guys love it and are looking forward to the next episode! It's almost like some of you guys have been waiting for someone to do regular reviews like this on Korean products. I'm so glad I can be of help.

Last night, I just uploaded my second Try It Tuesday episode. The choice this time was between the Missha BB Cream and the IOPE Air Cushion XP, and you guys chose the latter! It was a tighter vote than the previous episode between Laneige and Banila Co, but still a pretty obvious win! A lot of you were so interested in what I had to say about the IOPE, even though there are many many reviews out on the market. Due to this, and some of your requests from last episode and on my Facebook and Instagram posts, I decided to make this as informative as possible, covering everything I could possibly think of that is crucial to know about this item.

Because I go so in-depth in the review videos - even including an up close demo of how the product applies - I will not be repeating it again on my blog simply because it would just take too much time and I think it may be unnecessary if you can watch it in the video anyway! But if you have watched my video reviews and have further questions that I may not have covered, feel free to ask me and I will get back to you as much as possible. Okies? :)

So here's the full-length review of the IOPE Air Cushion XP:

I even did an up-close demo of how it applies on my face. In my previous episode I did this on the back of my hand, but so many of you requested for it to be done on my face, so I lowered my lighting settings as low as it could go for you guys to see it as close to the real thing in real life.

Overall I love both products, but they both have their pros and cons.

Also, because every makeup product works differently on everyone, I try to go as much into detail as I can in regards to skin types, longetivity and my own experience with my normal/combination skin.

If you're wondering about which BB/Air Cushion to buy out of the hundreds (it can seem!!) on the market, I hope these videos are helping you guys in some way. And I already know they are due to your comments! Thanks for all your comments and interaction! Youtube is so much more fun when it's two-way.

Love you guys!!
