Review: Lioele Water Drop BB Cream

"Lioele Water Drop Blemish Balm Cream (SPF27/PA++) (50ml) - It is an exclusive moisturizing BB cream which makes your skin moist since it contains waterdrop. - It naturally covers the skin blemishes to create clean skin tone and keeps the skin soft for a long time without glossiness. Please noted: The date at the bottom of the product which is the manufacture date, and the expiration date which is 3 years from the manufacture date."

So I bought this BB Cream because it is targeted toward those with DRY SKIN.
And I'm just like, "WHOA THATS ME!!!!"
So I bought it for like 25$ on ebay.
This BB cream is quite unique because when you blend it into your skin, it creates these water droplets, hence the name. But honestly, this is by far the WORSE BB CREAM OR FOUNDATION for my skin EVER. I am so sad I lost my 25$ that could of gone to more useful products...

This barely has any coverage at all. And I don't really see those water droplets because you seriously have to TAKE THE TIME to blend it in your skin.
I live in New York City, there is no time to take 15 minutes on your face BLENDING in your foundation to see water droplets.
My redness was gone though but all my little acne scars just look more pronounced because the rest of my skin looked decent.


OMFG, this is supposedly for DRY skin right? This ACCENTUATED my dry skin. My skin even got flaky from this product. I have dry skin, but its not so extreme that I am flaking until I used this shitty BB cream. SERIOUSLY? HOW CAN THIS BE FOR ANY SKIN? Even my coworkers though I went drinking the night before which equals to no sleep and smoking which equals to skin being not so nice.

This sucks.

If I had recommend a BB cream, Missha's Perfect Cover BB Cream in 23 always worked well for me. However, I am a sucker for new products and pretty packaging, so I will continue to buy and review.

Thanks for reading <3

Gal Meet/Cherry Blossom Festival NYC!

Kudos to the girl on the bottom left who was a member of Team Rocket and walked around with a broken leg :]

Oh man... you know I never really saw Cherry Blossoms or realized how they really looked like (cuz there are some growing by my house and I'm just GOD DAMN these are some nice ass trees) until I came to the festival. And to see a forest full of them is really breathtaking. Not mention the petals that are flying around while you're drinking a beer just feels really beautiful!

 Loooooooooots of people were hanging around, cosplayers, lolitas, and kids in the 8th grade who will draw you for 25 cents, woohoo!

It was also a meet up for NYC Gals! I went together with Hachi, Eden, Erin, and Hachi's friends Jane and Brittany! I don't think we got to meet a lot of NYC gals because we were kinda late... but we still met up with a number of GALs and we talked, picnic-ed and they took pics while I went to go buy a parasol~ (If I didn't get a parasol so help me, the shit I would of done.......... in my imagination.)

lolz lots of food for a picnic, huh?

We then went back to Flushing and took some purikura

After that we were suppose to go to a bar and just have fun but HOLY SHIT, EVERYONE WAS SO DAMN HUNGRY we just ended up going a ramen place and getting some beers and wine. I also had some hot sake. YUMMmmmmm

peaceeee ~

Cherry Blossom Festival 2011 Coordinate~

So I didn't really know what to wear because the weather is really always changing in NYC. Its hot, cold, in between, hot, humid, AND cold at the same, WTF???
So I didn't plan what to wear before hand and personally I dress whatever I feel like and I don't really like to plan what I'm wearing days before. It's more natural that way, y'know?
So I decided to look through my folder of hot outfits and I was inspired by this:

So I did this:

Yeah whoops I wore a red jacket and forgot to take a pic
Jacket: Zipia (thx u erinflufflycakes)
Shirt: F21
Shorts: unbranded (thx u eden)
Belt: Joyce Leslie
Boots: Steve Madden

my makeup was terrible because I kinda made it too dramatic. It reminded me of AV gals... not that I don't mind 
But eventually my eyelashes were kinda falling all over the place lolololol... and I also happened to run out of my favorite eyeliner (which is Lancome's Liquid Artliner in Noir/Black) so I had to use cheapy eyeliner and I am an eyeliner snob. :'(
It looked OK in pictures though :)
