I’m super lazy when it comes to my brows. So when I’m just going out for an errand, I just use a mascara (yup the one for the lashes) for extra volume and I’m good to go.

But when I do put on makeup, I spend a lot of time trying to get decent looking brows. The struggle is real for me!

Dear Klairs: A Love Letter

Dear Klairs,

Hi! You might be wondering who I am, so let me introduce myself. My name is Rika, 33, and is someone who was in dire need of your help.

I had been seeing you all over the internet, and I had always thought you were beautiful and classy. Most of the people who have met you only had good words about you. So I wished to the skin care gods to allow me to meet you.

It was as if the skin care gods had heard my prayers, an Angel by the name of Syahira told me I’d be meeting you at last! And now that you are with me, I can say that you have been added to the most special place in my heart. You make me feel young again.

I’m glad I met you.

10-Second Wash Off Masks?!|Althea x Get It Beauty Real Fresh Skin Detoxer

I always feel like Althea’s exclusive products have been specially made for me. First was the Althea Petal Velvet Powder that blurs out my pore-blematic pores. Next was their 3-step skin care with their Bare Essentials set that has helped me lessen the amount of time and the number of products to use when doing my skin care routine.  Just recently, they launched two wash off masks that do not require 20 or 10 minutes, but 10 seconds! Yes, you read that right. TEN SECONDS only.

These are the Althea Real Fresh Skin Detoxers. This is a collaboration of Althea with Korea’s No. 1 Beauty TV show, Get It Beauty! (My love DARA is in this season, so super duper yay!) Continue reading “10-Second Wash Off Masks?!|Althea x Get It Beauty Real Fresh Skin Detoxer”

As one of the Althea Angels, I will get first dibs on Althea exclusives and promos before the public announcement. Also, Althea sent us a super special Welcome Gift that was packaged in their classic pink box. Only, instead of Althea, it says “Angels” on the top right portion of the cover and a cute typography across it that says “Althea Angels”. Continue reading “Althea’s Welcome Gift to their Angels👼”

First Quarter Faves 2018

“And I have no concept of time other than it is flying…”
– Alanis Morrisette, All I Really Want

I can’t believe the first quarter of 2018 is already ending. I always feel like time passes by too quickly I can hardly keep up!

Anyway, I have been meaning to post my favorite makeup and skin care items, but I don’t know why I haven’t done so. 😅 Since it’s already the end of March, I guess it’s just fitting that I post my first quarter faves!

99.9% of the products in my possession are all close to my heart, but these quarterly favorites that I’ll be posting are the ones that I’ve been using repeatedly from the time this year started.

I listed everything down in my notebook first, so that I won’t miss a thing. However, I still made quite a long list and I can’t get myself to remove a thing. 😅 Continue reading “First Quarter Faves 2018”
