Grim Reaper Goblin Drama Outfit | 저승사자

Goblin / Guardian K Drama has already ended and i've watched the drama from the beginning until the very end. This drama is so far my favourite. The ups and downs, OST, and cinematography are all perfect. My favorite character is the grim reaper / wang yeo, played by Lee Dongwook and here i am with a grim reaper work attire inspired outfit!

Here's what he looks like in the drama!

To the one who thought that oblivion would bring me peace of mind. 
The moment our eyes met, i knew that you too retained your memories.
I pray that in our next life, the wait will be short and the meeting shall be long. 
That we won't need an excuse to see each other.
Entitled with our own dearest names.
So we could greet each other when we accidentally run into each other.
With our love always being the solution.
I pray that we can meet like that.
I'm just happy that i saw your face.
Sometimes you're Kim Woo Bin, and sometimes you're Wang Yeo.
Please live a long and happy life.
Goodbye.

Sunny's letter to Wang Yeo (Goblin Ep.16)

Catrice Lip Cushion Review

I'm a big follower of K Beauty Trends and cushion has been a big trend since last year. It has since branched out to more than cushion foundations. Lip Cushions are already quite common in Korea and i'm quite surprised to see that Catrice includes some Korean make up inspired products in their Spring/Summer 2017 collection. So, Catrice Lip Cushion , is it a top or a flop product?

Catrice's Claims on the Website

 Like the claim, it's a medium pigmented lip gloss. The colour pay of is just so so and but if you like natural looks then this is the product for you.
I tried dabbing the product onto the lips and it produces a sheer colour that's very pretty for a no make up look. Swipe if you want more pigmentation.
 Transfer Test
beauty blogger germany
All the product wipes off. It still leaves a kind of tint on the lips but the lasting power of this lipgloss is pretty disappointing.

What i think of it
It's an "okay" product. I didn't expect so much from this but it's just meh.
The color pay off is medium, which is what i usually like but the texture of it is so sticky ! My hairs and fallouts from scarfs were all stuck on my lips.
But heads up because it is an interesting product and the colors are actually very pretty for asian skin tones!
Is It Worth Buying?
Catrice Lip Cushion for me is a meh product.
But if you like lip gloss and want to try something interesting, this may be it !

Best of 2016 : Best Beauty, Make up , and Lifestyle Products !

2016 is already over! I did a lot of things during this year including being active again in this blog. I also really got into beauty and make up this year! My collection has grew and these are some of the top picks that i would like to recommend ! I tested them during the year and it's time for you to get to know them! HAPPY NEW YEAR !!

fashion blogger best of 2016
best cleanser
 Kose Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil
I've been using this oil all the time for the first step of my double cleansing routine. It gets all waterproof make up off and you don't even need to rub hard. This cleansing oil is also very affordable ( 7, 82 Eur for 230 ml ) !

Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash
I stumbled upon this product in Douglas Frankfurt Zeil and decided to try it out!
A little goes a long way and it's very mild yet effective. It doesn't leave the skin dry yet cleanses all the grimes and dirts inside the pores.

best skincare products

Garnier Hydra Bomb Tuchmaske / Sheet mask
I'm a big sheet mask mania and i've been testing out different sheet masks from a lot of brands. This one is available in DM and Rossmann in Germany and is the best sheet mask i've ever tested so far. It really moisturizes the skin and the effect lasts for days. I have to admit that it is kind of pricey (2 Euro pro sheet) but it's up to par to high end korean brands.
Origins GinZing Energy-boosting Moisturizer
The GinZing line is enriched with caffeine and vitamins to give your skin an energy boost. My skin always look replenished and glows after i apply this in the morning. The texture is light and gel-like but is very moisturizing. This product suits oily skin types really well because it doesn't contain any oils.
COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All in One Cream
i mostly use this cream at night or as a sleeping mask. This has been my gateway to loving COSRX Products ! Read my full review on this cream here 

best make up
Pony Effect Everlasting Cushion Foundation
This is my go to winter cushion ! The formula is really thin so it applies really naturally with a dewy finish. The puff is also invented by Pony herself and it's called the dough puff. It lasts all day and even better when you put a primer underneath! This is a certain must buy for korean cushion lovers.

Aprilskin Magic Snow Fixing Cushion Foundation
I discovered this cushion from beauty vloggers and this was my summer cushion. The coverage is amazing and it lasts the whole day as well. It has a natural matte finish which is perfect!
Take a look at my full review here

Benefit Porefessional
This primer is one of the holy grails of beauty bloggers all over the world. It refines pores and makes your skin super smooth. This is perfect for people with oily skin like me.

 Anna Sui Rose Cheek Color N 301
I got this as a gift and it's a really beautiful blush! you can mix the colors together and it gives you a very nice flush. The pigmentation is really strong so be sure to use it with a light hand.

Aritaum Color Lasting Tint in No. 6 Cranberry Shower
I always wear this if i'm going out for a long time. The color is a very flattering dark pink / cranberry which is amazing on yellow toned skin. The name is not only a promise, it really lasts a long time even after drinking and eating snacks!

best hair products

John Frieda Frizz Ease Wunderkur
This is the ultimate treatment for your hair. It's not oily yet nourishes every hair strands. I've been using this once a week and have seen immediate results. The hair is smooth and easy to style for days after you use this product.

Schwarzkopf Glisskur Tägliches Öl-Elixier
This is the reason my hair is really soft and nourished even though i wash my hair everyday. I usually apply it when my hair is still wet and it just smooths all the frizz and adds shine. I would recommend this to everyone who has dry and unruly hair!

best lotion

L'occitane Hand Cream
These are until now my favorite series of hand cream. I tried 3 or 4 variants of it already and it always smells wonderful. They are never sticky so it's comfortable to use it during studying or going outside. The size is perfect to carry around!

Rituals Honey Touch Body Cream
Jacqueline introduced me to this body cream and got me this for my birthday. The texture is very creamy yet light. You can easily apply it on and the scent is also very relaxing.
You get a nice amount of product for the price and you only need a little bit every time.
7
Baseball / Snapback Caps
This year i've been known as the girl who wears caps all the time. This is a life saviour when i'm having a bad hair day. It also elevates a simple outfit to a swag kind of style. 
Minimalist Jewellery
less is more. That's the style look i aimed for in 2016. Adding minimalist jewellery to your outfit of the day adds more accent points without doing too much. 

best life
 Kpop , K Hip Hop, and K R&B
These are the things that i've started loving in 2016. My favorite artists have been Dean, Zico, Blackpink, Big Bang, and the whole AOMG crew. 

Family & Friends
They're the ones that make my life merrier ! The stars of my instagram and snapchat stories :D
Cheers to great memorable moments in 2017!

Winter Essentials : Beauty, Fashion, and Lifestyle

As i continue to complain how cold the weather is here in Marburg, you should know that winter has arrived. The ultimate key to survive winter is to stay warm, moisturized, and comfy. I'll share my favorite products which can inspire you to try them out!
winter essentials


Beauty
best moisturizer
Moisturize ! 
I love to use a thicker moisturizer during the winter and have found some that are not heavy in oil and makes my skin looks really oily. I really recommend the L'occitane Immortelle Precious cream as an everyday moisturizer because it's very thick yet not sticky or heavy. COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All in One Cream, you all already know, that i love LOVE it ( read the full review here ) . I've been also trying out the Yves Rocher Serum Vegetal Luminizing Eye Roll On but it's only "okay". It has claimed to reduce black circle and wrinkles but it hasn't done anything yet.
aloe vera gel
Wear a Mask every 2 or 3 Days
This step is really soothing and does only good things for your skin! I hoard sheet masks from different brands in my refrigerator and put them on while watching movies or even studying. I got the Aloe Gel from the most loveable (sarangsurowooo) Margareta Vania and use it whenever i feel lazy to put on a real mask. I just apply the gel a little bit thicker than usual and let my skin absorb all the moisture from it.
yves rocher facial mist
Use Facial Mist in Between Outdoor Activities
This is a fun activity to do and refreshes your skin and feeling when you're outside. This mist is pretty small in size so it's perfect to carry around. It's fun to use alone and spray at your friends (especially male ones) to annoy them but do something good at the same time :p
best body butter 
Apply Body Butter after Showering
Not only your face needs to be taken care of but also your body ! Your skin gets drier during the colder months so it needs some extra love. It's most effective when you apply body butter or cream right after showering. I would recommend Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter & Rituals Honey Touch Body Cream because these smell amazing and really do make your skin very soft to the touch! 

Fashion
winter fashion essential
Big Scarfs & Beret
Say hi to Jenny, our model of the day <3
I have been wearing this huge scarf from Hollister a lot these months because it's very warm and a statement if you wear a dark colored coat. Wool Beret is also easy to match and keeps your head warm !
jenny and i, who's cuter?
Lifestyle
gudetama mug
Tea & Scented Candles
I drink at least 2 cups of tea everyday and my favorites are this Lipton Apricot, Peach, & Guava Fruit Tea and Twinings English Breakfast. They're black teas with certain flavors that i really like. I've also been enjoying them in this veerrry cute Gudetama Mug from Jacqueline !
My latest obsession is collecting scented candles and lighting them up every time i'm home. I still haven't found the best scented candle yet but i've been loving this calvin klein one i got from TKMaxx !  

I hope you got some inspiration for this Winter for my list! 
What's your winter essentials?

Dezzal.com Review

Hello! I've been really into some of the new trends lately, including the ones inspired from the 90s. The tank-top over t-shirt trend started out in South Korea and has begun to roll over the world. I have been searching for a perfect way to incorporate this trend into a daily look and here's my take on it!

I also accessorised this look with a small backpack from Dezzal.com which they kindly sent me!
This backpack is super cute for everyday wear and easy to style!
They look so perfect on me because it's just the perfect size and colour for me!

dezzal.com reviews 
Sizing
They have a sizing guide with detailed measurements.
However, the sizes do run quite small / asian sizes.
I recommend to order a size or two larger or take a look at the measurement carefully.
A little measure band in hand always is useful in shopping online!

Customer Service
Dezzal has a live chat so you can ask questions in real time and get some recommendations to help you shop. 
They do receive returns in 30 days but it's on your own expense.
You do have to take care of the incoming tax if you live in a country that has it (be careful).
As for payment, you can pay via paypal, major credit cards & debit cards.

Price
Dezzal's prices are affordable yet not so cheap. I was a bit shocked because these kinds of online shops usually have really low prices but Dezzal don't. But when i received the products, the quality is amazing. trust me. It's worthy of a high street brand.

Dezzal Metallic Bunny Embroidery Backpack  (get it here)

Dezzal.com kindly sent me some items to review and here's my personal opinion about them :

Website Look
The website is clean with easy to use navigations. You can certainly find your way through and enjoy shopping in Dezzal . The photos of the clothes are very detailed and are really true to the real one. 

Shipping
The shipping takes two to three weeks with a tracking code. I live in Germany and it came with the DHL Service, which is really reliable. They packaged the items really carefully (not that kind of throw everything into a box thing *cough*) so the things you bought are still in perfect condition.

dezzal.com

Quality? TOP NOTCH!








The backpack is made of a leather-like material which feels really elegant. The embroidered bunnies design gives the bag a little cute twist which i really love! Zippers are all gold and detailed with little ornaments. The straps can be adjusted to your body height and it's really reliable. I filled it up with my necessary things such as make up pouch, water bottle, huge wallet, and camera and it really felt sturdy! 

It looks really good in real life and the same as what it shows in the website. The size and design looks super cute on me and i've been using this backpack every time i go out to hang out with my friends!

  
So?
I would recommend to shop in Dezzal.com because they have beautiful designs and they suit my body type a.k.a short asian body type. They are pretty great!

Btw, Dezzal is doing a Green Monday Sale !
Up to 40% Sale for amazing coats, dresses, tops, and bags for this season!
