I'm gonna miss BLOGGING

..and the time has come for me to get serious in this career.
Last month I graduated with my Bachelor's degree in Pharmacy. Next to that: Passing the board exam.

I would just like to remind my readers that I won't be as active as I am right now for I will be very busy with the review, which will start tomorrow, but it will end on the last week of May.

I will try my best to post some stuff here on my blog because this blogging thing is my stress-reliever and I don't want to stop that, since I knew that reviewing will be a bit stressful.
But I'd still be active in FacebookTwitter, and on Instagram.

so, 'till then - k*

Dolly Wink Volume Mascara Review

Hello my beloved readers!
Here's another review for y''s the Dolly Wink Volume Mascara
I got the one with the free Dolly Wink eyeliner.

 In Japan, it's worth 1,575 yen, but my cousin bought this one in HK for HK$ 125 (Php 687.68)... wow! now that's quite a good buy for two Japanese products.

I'm not really a gyaru freak, but I'm a fan of this Japanese model, Tsubasa Masuwaka.

Look! She's even wearing the Princess Mimi circle the same color I have ;) Now, that's a coincidence. My cousin didn't even know that I have this pair of contacts.

The mascara! :p

Expecting a lot of volume in this kind of brush...

Yay! Free black liquid eyeliner :)

Actually, I was expecting it to be a felt tip one, but it's in a brush. Quite good also.

Top lashes

Bottom lashes

  • It's waterproof and I didn't expect that from this product. Perfect for the Philippine weather.
  • Affordable...well, in HK price.
  • It gives a bit of length to my lashes.
  • Dries quickly after applying.
  • It didn't give that much volume as expected. A bit disappointed about that.
  • Here in the Philippines, this product can only be bought online in a very "rip-off" price :(((
I love the fact that this mascara gave a bit of length to my lashes, which is very good for a doll-like effect to the eyes, but it's labelled as a volume mascara, too bad this didn't give any volume at all.

...and that's it for my review about this product.
What Dolly Wink products do you wanna try? I would really love to hear it from my readers.
'till next post! - k*

11 Questions Tag

LOL it's my first time to be tagged with these questions thanks to Janine of Nin Monster in Manila.
Anyways, here are the rules to this particular tag:

  • Each person must post 11 things about themselves on their blog.
  • Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post.
  • Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
  • You have to choose 11 people to tag and link them on the post. Go to their page and tell them you have linked him or her.
  • No tag backs.
  • No stuff in the tagging section about "You are tagged if you're reading this", You actually have to tag 11 people.

So...11 things about me >.<

1.) I'm a musician. I actually came from a family of musicians :) I play the piano and guitar, and I also love to sing...a lot! :p

2.) Took up BS in Pharmacy..and will be taking the board exam very soon.

3.) I started blogging last April of 2011...but up to now, I kinda find it hard to focus on blogging because I'm still busy with board exam review.

4.) Yes, I have a Twitter account... follow me, it's @kimycuporiginal ...I do tweet A LOT, and I love to follow back, get to know a lot of bloggers and people..

5.) I've only been into 2 countries so far. Aside from the Philippines (where I live of course), I've been to Hong Kong (4 times) and Macau (once).

6.) My favorite singers? I've gotta say it's Utada Hikaru, Christina Aguilera, and Adele.

7.) Current addction: AMERICAN IDOL, the Brit boy band THE WANTED, and INSTAGRAM haha! :p

8.) Not single, I'm taken, happy and in love

9.) I'm a very fair person. "Fair" for me means I treat a person the same way he/she treats me. For example, if you're rude to me, I'd also be rude to you ;p

10.) I love to read books. Current fave is The Alchemist.

11.) My dream job? HA! I want to be a traveller who gets paid by blogging all about the food in a certain place...yup, that's my dream job.

and here's the 11 questions I have to answer:

  1. Who is your fashion inspiration? 
- I don't have any fashion inspiration. For me fashion is all about expressing your true self. 

2. What is your favorite movie and/or book of all time?

- It's gotta be the Harry Potter series. 

3. Where do rainbows lead to, if not a pot of gold? :P

- 'cause that's life dear...

6. How do you know if he's the one? (If married/with someone, share your love story briefly. Ayiiieee!) :P

- Hmm..This is a tough one. There's no sign actually. It takes time for a relationship to grow, and with that growth you'll be able to realize if he's the one.

7. Who is your biggest celebrity crush?

- Josh Zuckerman!!!! who plays Max in 90210 :p

8. What is your favorite facial moisturizer?

- I don't use moisturizer, girl...sorry :)

10. When will your birthday be, five years from now? (Complete with the day please.) :P

- June 9, 2017, Friday

11. Why should we be proud to be human? :P

- Because God designed each and every one of us with a brain, so thaT we can think, a heart, so that we can feel, and with a soul, so that we can do things with passion. :)

Lash Review: NOYL Value Pack 5p

First, I want to thank everyone who have posted comments on my previous blogpost (link here). 
Most of you liked the set of lashes that I received and it's the NOYL lashes that's in a 5-piece value pack.

For the upper lashes:

For the lower lashes:

Each pack comes with a lash case...

As what I've mentioned on my previous post, each pack is worth HK$ 52.00 bought in Sasa.

Close up... 

*I took these photos using my camera phone...sorry >.<

-The Verdict-
  • It's natural-looking, meaning it's not too obvious that I'm wearing these falsies when I had them on.
  • I love the fact that when I remove them from the package, I can remove them easily, unlike the other lashes I've tried that if I have to remove them, I have to scrape them off using tweezers.
  • Got free lash case. YAY!
  • Super lightweight.
  • NOT itchy and it's wearable in any occasion.
  • NOT disposable. Can be used for about 2-3 times. (that's okay with me)
  • For me the length of the upper and lower lashes is just fine.
  • This product is not available here in the Philippines.
  • It didn't come with a lash glue :(

So that's it for my review on these lashes from NOYL. 
For those people who have been thinking on buying this one, I do hope this review helped you.

Enjoy the holidays! 'till next post - k*
