Forever 21 50% off sale items+ free shipping over $21 + extra 2.5% off with ebates

 I literally just woke up, and the first thing I do is check my phone.  I know, its pretty sad that it is the first thing I do but sometimes it is proven to be a good thing.  Last time there was a 40% off one item in forever 21 stores, and it was one day only so I had the chance to go before work and snag something awesome for super cheap.

This time around, there is 50% off sales items which is even more awesome because you can get some stuff for even cheaper.  Who doesn't like that HAHA.  The sale ends on April 13, 2015 (3 days) so I'd say jump on it! On top of that, there is free shipping over $21 which is such a good deal because normally free shipping is only over $60, or you'd have to pay $10 for shipping. Best deal right now to get anything you want!

Etude house March 2015 Pink bird (feat.Color in liquid lips collection + lip care goodies)

 Long time no blog.  I know I have been away for literally a month.  I've just been tired from work, and wanted some offline time to myself and just rest and relax.  But I am back with another pink bird un-boxing for you guys featuring the color in liquid lips collection.  This box also came with corresponding lip care products that goes perfectly with the lip colors.  I saw these lip colors all over instagram, youtube and blogs with amazing swatches which definitely sparked my interest.
 If this is your first time at my blog, welcome!  Check out my other pink bird box un-boxings and product reviews I have done.  I especially love the play 101 pencils and will be doing a review on them soon. The dark brown shade have been my go to color and it seriously stays on my waterline all day! Its amazing and costs only $6. :)  Here is the link to all the other awesomeness from Etude house:

Let's get started with this month's box shall we?

Etude House play 101 review and swatches

The one thing that gets me in trouble is Youtube.  Youtube always makes me want to buy things, but usually the beauty products famous youtubers show are always products from Sephora which also means tons of $$$.  Dollar bills flying hurts my soul, so when I saw these featured in Pony's Beauty Diary videos, I knew I had to have it.  These are from Etude House and they launched these a couple months back (about five months or more) and they were a definite hit.  Sadly we don't have an Etude house in North America but no worries because there is Testerkorea :D.  No I am not sponsored by them (I wouldn't mind to be though...hint hint nudge nudge).  These were also featured in a past pink bird box but sadly I was not picked to be a pink bird box back then so I just jumped the bullet and got me a ton.

I know I know, no one needs so many beauty products, especially this many liners.  But  these are different!  I SWEAR! *These are words that come from a beauty hoarder*.  You can use this all over your face, not limited to just your eyes.  You can use these as a lip color, cheek color or eye liner/ eye shadow.
I'll elaborate more!  Just click read more~

Sephora Birthday Gift 2015

 It is that time of year!  I used to look forward to birthdays when I was a child but you grow up and it is just another day.  But companies does a good job to make you feel special with freebies and promos just for your birthday month/ day.  Sephora, the best friend for all women, gives you a cool birthday give every year and may I say, the somehow seem to manage to top last year's gift year after year!  Last year was a Make up forever lipstick and black eyeliner, and this year it is..... *drumroll*.... NARS velvet matte lip pencils. And not one, but two of them!  And if you are a VIB rouge, they throw in an extra gift with is a "larger then life long-wear eyeliner" in the shade Via Venieto.

Luckily my birthday is in February so I get to enjoy it early hehe.  So this post, I bring you close up pictures and swatches for you curious cats.

Etude house Feburary 2015 Pink bird (feat. Chocolate collection, Precious mineral moist any cushion)

 I know Valentines has already pasted, but HAPPY VALENTINES DAY EVERYONE! Even if you don't have a boyfriend or a husband, it can also be a day to love yourself and treat yourself to something sweet, something pretty.  I'm excited to show you Etude House's latest collection, the Chocolate and some other new products even I was surprised to see in the box!  When I saw their collection on Etude house korea's instagram, I freaked out so hard because I really wanted to get the Too Faced chocolate bar palette but all the colors I had something in my collection that could have been duped so it was no point.  So When I saw Etude house's adorable and affordable collection, I was like..."I NEED EVERYTHING!"

If you don't know what Pink bird box is, it is not a box you can buy but a box kindly created by Etude House themselves which they send to hand selected bloggers to bring readers their latest collections.  Sadly you can not buy these boxes, but I will leave links to sites I trust online which you can get these products :), with affordable worldwide shipping of course!

The funny little short story behind this box, I got this box literally when I was still half asleep.  I had to run to the front door at 11:00 am when the mail man surprisingly was super early. After my usual mail lady who delivered all my memebox had been switched to a different route, the new mailman comes at 3:00 pm which is super inconvenient since that is the time I go to work, so I'd have to either wait til my parcel goes to the post office or even wait for the next day to pick it up.  I almost fell down the stairs because I was so scared the mail man would leave.  So I finally got to the door, still in my PJ's, hair worse then a bee hive and I still couldn't see clearly since my eye poop made my vision still fluzzy.  At my front door I see a mail man and a little pink package.  I was like oh nice! My very last Memebox (bittersweet moment), but I got upstairs and it was actually my pink bird box.  I was still half asleep but I was screaming for joy silently hehe.
Sorry for the super long store, hope you don't mind.  Hey at least this is just a blog post and you didn't have to go through a 7 min video hearing me babble right :)?

Dior cheek and lip glow first impression review and swatches

It's been quite a while since I posted anything here.  That's because I'm slightly heartbroken with Memebox breaking up with all their international customers, and that includes me.  I super uninspired lately, but let's get back into the groove.  I guess I will be shopping at lot more at Sephora from now on since they have interesting products (and hella expensive) and Testerkorea will be my best friend.  I ordered tons of Etude house play 101 pencils so you can be looking forward to that too ;).

Anyways, I somehow got a hold of this product in stores when it just came out and was suppose to be VIB rouge exclusive, meaning customers that have not reached the Rouge status can't buy it.  But sometimes they do get shipments in early and this was included when I went shopping for fun.  I have been eyeing this product since I love their Dior lip glow, so I automatically already excepted this into the glow family.

Are you curious to see how this product performs?  Read more~

Etude house Chocolate collection

 One week ago, I saw this collection on instagram and freaked the F out LOL.  I have been eyeing the Too faced chocolate bar palette for the longest time even though I really don't need it since it is just another neutral palette, but the packaging just gets to me.  So when Etude house came out with this collection, it is the perfect dose for my craving!  Just look at it!

I saw an update on Etude house's page saying these will be coming out on Febuary 2, so in just four days these will be available.  I'm in love with the eye shadows, they're little dipped chocolate bars :D.  They also shared another facebook page that swatched all the eye shadows and nail polishes.  I'll be posting this in this post and add the link to the facebook page if you are interested. :)

Seriously even if I don't need anymore make up, etude house somehow has this magic mixture of enough girly and princess that won't make me puke.  I'm not the girlish girl, and I don't prefer pink over any colors, but everything etude house comes out with is perfect!!!! Makes me scream like a fan girl.

Maybelline January 2015 haul, first impression, swatches

Out of all the drugstore brands, Maybelline has the biggest collection that is new and fresh.  These are the few things I bought.  I didn't get everything since I don't need everything, but I most excited for their lipstick collection!!  They are so pretty~

Unboxing: Memebox global #18

 I haven't even noticed, but it has been a week since I last posted.  I've been taking care of the house since my parents are gone to vacation.  Doing all different kinds of house work, and since I got nothing to do, cooking has been something really fun for me again.  It's been a while since I got that spark of passion back for cooking as I do that for a living, it gets boring.  Check my instagram, christinahello, if you are curious to see what I am cooking up.  Currently I have made beef Pho from scratch, butter chicken and sushi.  That butter chicken was goooood haha.  Anyways I am continuing with my unboxings as I have a huge stack waiting for me to post, so let's get started with the Global 18 which was December 2014's box.
$23.00 + shipping

 Coupons and a full list of my past unboxing will be included at the end of the post.

Unboxing: Memebox superbox #71 my cute wishlist 4

 My cute wishlist 4, was one of the two restock boxes I bought recently.  There wasn't much choices, as the Vagabond box I wanted for the longest time still has not come back yet or I think it did, but I missed it :(.  So this one and volume up will have to do.  When this box first came out, it didn't really look that great but I think the Memebox drought got to me and suddenly this box didn't look so bad since you do get 8 products.

$23.00 + shipping
 As always, coupons will be included at the end, along with my thoughts on this box :). Enjoy!

Unboxing: Memebox special #37 Wake up make up

This unboxing has definitely been long awaited.  I got this box two weeks ago, but got caught up in the holiday madness.  Two days ago, I finally got to do my surgery to get the lump in my breast removed, and no it isn't cancer (I say that in the most hopeful matter).  Right now I have two pillows under my chest so I can stand up right and type this haha.

When this box first came out, I really wanted to get it but I don't know why, I didn't get up getting. So I'm really grateful Memebox sent me this to review :).  Thank you!!
$23.00 + shipping
Updated coupons will be included at the end of this blog post.  Enjoy!

YSL volutpe tint-in-oil review

 When I was browsing the Sephora website during the Christmas time to see what I want to buy with the $20 off $50, I was slightly stuck since I bought everything I possibility wanted in the VIB 20% off sale.  So when I saw YSL coming out with a new product called the Tint-in-oil, I had to try it out!  That and it was exclusively being sold to VIB/VIB rouge, so I kind of felt a bit special hehe.

The product concept doesn't really excite me since there are such products in the Korean and asian market, but at least this is something I can play with and touch physically in stores rather then playing the guessing game when I buy my Korean cosmetics online.

Let's cut this short and get started!

Unboxing: Memebox special #79 Oh! my lips

 Here we are with another unboxing.  Sorry I have been away for so long but I'm getting back into the swing of things.  But I might be away for a bit longer since I'm going into surgery :(.  Its in six days and I'm definitely not looking forward to it. Anyways, lets get to the unboxing since that's what you came for!
$23.00 + shipping

I was really looking forward to this box since I love me some lip balms and lip treatments, but surprisingly this box came with a mix.  I was expecting all lip balms and such, but we got a few extra other things as well. I'm actually pretty happy with this box even though a lot of others did not like it. Now let's get into it!

Unboxing: Memebox special #70 cleanse and tone

 I am finally back with another unboxing.  I have been lacking in the unboxing department lately since the throbbing in my head got pretty bad making my head hurt all the time.  That and I am working a ton so when I come home, I'm crazy tired and just want to sleep.  So I apologize for the latest, but better late then never right ;D.

I have come to you with the cleanse and tone box.  I remember a lot of people were wishing for a box full of just toners, so when they came out with this box, I was like YES PLEASE and bought it right away.  I had super high hopes for this box since the first skincare box was amazing, the second edition one was great too.  When I saw the spoilers for this one, I was slightly underwhelmed but let's just see what products we got in this box!
 Also when I was taking pictures with my camera, I didn't notice that my white balance was off, so the pictures are leaning towards a blue tone.  I'm not happy about it but I don't have the time to take the pictures again. I promise that it will be fixed in the future ;).

Coupons are included at the end of the post along with my full list of unboxings I have tone in the past which you can use as reference!
