Must Have Make-up Monday #2

Long Lasting Eyeliner 

Are you looking for the perfect eyeliner? I found a super pigmented liquid liner that goes on perfectly!

What I look for in an Eyeliner…

  •  Ultra pigmented so that I don’t have to go over it multiple times.{Only having to apply it once saves product}
  •  A fine brush because it offers more control and precision{a fine brush allows you to make the perfect cat eye}
  • Smooth consistency that glides on for a flawless application

I don’t really like pen-style eyeliners and gel eyeliner because they dry out too quickly. The Sephora brand is exactly What an eyeliner is supposed to be and it has a great price too. It goes on smooth , has a dramatic matte color, and is long lasting. plus it only costs $12!

Even though I have a lot of practice applying my eyeliner I still make mistakes sometimes. I love that with this eyeliner you can easily correct it with a q-tip and makeup remover.

It lasts me at least 2 months probably longer if you don’t apply as much as I do. 🙂

This is my absolute favorite liquid liner!


This is also available in a waterproof version but I honestly don’t like it at all. Like most waterproof liquid liners it has a sort of shine to it and it stays tacky.

What is your favorite eyeliner?

Japanese Snack Attack!!! #5

This is a All Japanese drink review! I bought a bunch of drinks at marukai today and tried them all… lol


Ramune never lets me down! This time I purchased the coconut flavor and it was the best! I wish I could buy a 2 liter..haha I really don’t know why there isn’t a coconut fanta it would make so much money. It tastes exactly like what it is … coconut…soda … 🙂


Calpico brand in Lychee flavor… It tasted really artificial. I could drink it but the flavor was so perfumey that it kind of gave me a headache. (I don’t know if thats happened to other people lol)

orangeNext is Mandarin orange drink and it  was only 79 cents so I thought I would try it. I’ve been obsessed with tangerines since I went to pink berry and tried there amazing tangerine flavor! Anyway this drink is really natural tasting which i liked but it had a lot of pulp. It tastes almost like a grapefruit orange.. not very sweet… really tangy.


I bought this one because of the delicious looking mango on the front! I think this tastes pretty good for having bell peppers, pumpkin,onion,asparagus,radish, and kale in it.( I can’t believe it) Taste like a fruity v8 lol

I don’t have a picture for this yet but i also tried cherry plum soda, it has this really cute bottle with cherry blossoms on it. It tastes like carbonated water and cherry flavor but its pretty good.

Bonus I bought a Horned melon which looks super exotic lol

you have to cut it in half , get a bowl and squeeze out the insides like an orange! It really doesn’t taste like much and you have to drink it. Its gone so fast you don’t really have a chance to taste much.


I think this may be the last time I do a review on japanese drinks… Some of these are really awful and expensive lol

Ill just stick to Ramune!

If You know any Delicious japanese drinks i should try leave it in the comments below!

Mexican Street food!!

I think everyone pretty much knows the popular mexican street food { like Tacos , quesadillas and tortas } Those are definitely tasty but here is a couple treats you may not know about and are still super good!

My absolute number one favorite treat since I was in elementary school is called a mangonada!!! Its a cup filled with fresh pureed mango and frozen with a popsicle stick in the center. Once its completely frozen you add chamoy and lemon and i like to get a spoon and get a little chamoy and mango in every bite! yummy!!! ❤


My second Addiction is a raspado(shaved ice) I’m sure most of you have heard of this but my favorite is a little different. The Raspado I love is shaved so fine it almost feels like sorbet. It comes in Vanilla, lime, Strawberry and sometimes coconut. If you’ve tried an american snow cone … they taste very artificial and have huge ice chips but this version tastes fresher and is especially good on a hot summer day. you also have the option of adding lechera on top which is a thick, sweet tasting milk. MMM MMM

My fav is the mexican vanilla!


Hot cheetos are delicious on there own but when you add chamoy it becomes even better! When you buy a bag of chips Some shops in mexican neighborhoods Will add chamoy for only 25 cents. If you haven’t tried it, you should! it packs a lot of flavor. you can buy a bottle of chamoy at any mexican market.

Another Variation of this is tostilocos …. you pick your base chip and they open it up add chamoy , japanese peanuts, pickled pig skin, jicama, lime and sometimes tamarind candy & cucumbers. I will eat this occasionally but its definitely takes some getting used to. The pickled pig skins sound disgusting but they don’t taste like anything the texture is just like jello lol so maybe if your feeling adventurous and want to try something new this will be for you!



Elote (corn) is something everyone has tried but mexicans add a couple of things that set it apart! They start off with boiled or grilled corn on the cob. Then they add melted butter, Mexican thick crema (or mayo), cotija cheese, lime, and paprika. Its a good snack but only eat it around people your comfortable with because it makes a mess!! Your face will be covered in white goop but thats part of the experience lol

You could easily make this at home!



Mango con chile

This is a Mango on a stick with chili powder and lemon sprinkled on top and its so fresh and yummy. These are usually sold in parks. You can actually make a version of this at home. Just chop up some mangos into chunks and Sprinkle Tajin all over! Delicious and you can do this with cucumber too!


Thank you for reading !!

Japanese Snack Attack!! #4

I tried a few different snacks and drinks today! I even made a video Ill attach at the bottom!

Dorayaki baked red bean cake was the first treat I tried and it was a dense pancake type bread and it was filled with red bean paste. It was sweet  but a little too dry. I mean what do i expect for .98 cents. It also is a little weird that it comes with desiccant packs(kinda like the pack that comes in shoes) inside the package. lol I probably won’t be buying these again but they were def fun to try!

Red bean cake :4/10



Ramune strawberry soda was next on my list! I was so excited because it has a really unique bottle shape and marble cork. It tastes exactly like strawberry soda should taste but fresher somehow. when I go back to marukai ill pick up a new flavor. maybe squid ink? >.<

Strawberry soda Ramune: 9/10

Must try



Next is King green peas… there not  that special or weird but I wanted to try them anyway and they were pretty good.. I think I’m going to re-buy them. They taste like corn nuts but lighter and I’m always looking for snacks to eat during movies because I hate when popcorn get stuck in my teeth.. Eww lol

green peas : 7/10

A bit over meh


nom nom

Last item of the day is the Ramen chips!I  almost opened them last night but i ate the mochi instead lol. These were really crunchy and super yummy.  They tasted Just like the top ramen seasoning and the chip is almost a cracker but more like a chip lol if that makes any sense. ill explain more in the video. ^.^

9/10 for Ramen chips!



Any Japanese snacks or drinks you want me to try??

Tell me in the comments below!

Japanese Snack Attack!!! #3

I couldn’t help myself and I had to eat my Mochi ice cream [ gummy rice outside … sweet ice cream inside] I have to admit that Mochi isn’t a new treat for me and I’ve been crazy about these for years now. I’m actually surprised that they haven’t become more popular! I make it a habit to buy at least one box every time I go to Marukai because there cheaper here and so far this is the only store they sell the vanilla flavor(my fav). I can seriously inhale a whole box is less than 10 min and I’m not ashamed to say so. If you haven’t tried these then head to your nearest japanese market and buy a box (or two) ^.^

These are my favorite snack of all time! They are little bites of heaven ❤ 

I purchased the maeda-en brand but mikawaya brand is almost the same. They come in Green Tea, Red Bean, Mango, Vanilla, Strawberry, Chocolate and Black Sesame. They are little bite sized bon-bons about the size of a ping pong ball.

Mochi :10/10

Price : 2.98

Must try!


In Love with Mochi!
