The broken :(

I haven't had much luck with eyeshadows. Singles tend to be of terrible quality, quads and trios are much nicer, but then, there is always one color I use more than all the others. One color that I always want in a single.

This Trio was finally one that I loved each and every color. They blended seamless, and looked fantastic.

But.... It broke, and It's skin stopped making it....
So There is no EOTD, because I dropped the compact, and it turned to a powdered mess.
But I wanted to show you what once was a lovely compact, and share my woe.....

It's skin - Color play - Trio Eyeshadow
Price : 6000won I think....
 It's a baked shadow, with a light, dark and in between shade. I got a trio of cool bronzes. The compact is super simple, a mirrorless matte black.

The show really doesn't look like much.... But trust me, it was gorgeous....

The Face shop - Matte polish in Neon Yellow!

The Face shop - Matte polish in Neon Yellow!
Price : 4000won ($4)
Are you ready to hear something stupid???
I bought another Matte, yellow polish from The Face shop. Does anyone remember my DISASTROUS encounter with a yellow matte polish last year???
If not, go read my post! My nails were YELLOW for 6 months!!!!
I don't know what I was thinking when I bought this Neon Yellow.  I bought the Neon green too.
I think it's the fact they are Matte, and Matte are so hard to find! I'm not sure If I even like the look of matte polish....

Do you like Matte Nail polishes?
So the Neon yellow, as you can see, it is bright. Under florescent lighting, it is blindingly bright.
The color is really cool. It is so different. I have never before, and never again since seen a color quite like it.

The polish itself is creamy, and super thick. It's like paste, and goes on like glue.
This is quite possibly the worst Nail polish to apply. No definitively, I have never encountered a worse nail polish.
I bought it when It first came out too, so it's not like it is old and dried out. It started out nasty and thick.
It's really really hard to get a smooth coat.  If you look at a closeup of my nails, they look uneven and streaky, it is just that thick.

It also stained my nails. Even with a base coat. Mind you, it was only a slight yellow tint, like day old highlighter, but what a pain!! Not to mention, it is expensive (for a Korean polish, they are generally 1-2$.)
Verdict, AVOID Face shop's Matte polishes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

School Supplies!

Since I decided to go back to school, I had to buy some cute Korean school supplies from G-market! (I swear I don't work for g-market, I just love it so!)
Here's what I got
They look boring on the outside, but inside, they are crayons (not markers!), which is so cool, because they are ERASEABLE! So at the end of the year I can sell my books back!!
Study Planner
It's super cute, but only a 1/2 year planner, which I did not realize! But It's got adorable details, like little customizable cover pieces (Time tables, or motivational sayings, and other random ones!)
Sticky Notes!
I love Sticky notes, the little packet has list notes, timetable notes, indicator tabs, and just regular!
Study Timer
Best thing EVER. It counts down or Up. So I will say set 30minutes, and then keep working until the timer goes off! It's great for keeping me motivated!
Staple-less stapler
It's so odd. It staples paper, without staples! It really works!

So those are my new supplies. I think I am disproportionately excited.... But they are so awesome!

Holika Holika nail polish in Baby blue

Holika Holika nail polish in Baby blue

Price: 2000 won (Less than $2)

There is one word to describe this color - Gorgeous!
You might be thinking it's just another baby blue.
Sure I could see that, baby blue is pretty common.
But this nail polish by Holika Holika is just gorgeous. It is really bright and fresh. So instead of being a boring pastel, the color really pops. It's oddly strong for a pastel. You have to admit the tone is gorgeous, it is super flattering, my hands look younger and brighter in this color.
 It's so good.
(Sorry about the rant :D )

The polish is also a wonderful texture, thick enough for easy 2 coat coverage, but this enough it applies like a dream. The finish is gorgeous, even when my nails are less than perfect.

This whole line by Holika has some of my favorite polishes!
