Happy Mew Year! – A Recap of 2016 Furrrvorites

A lot of bad shit happened in 2016. Like, furrreal. But a lot of good shit happened too. As we bid adieu to 2016 and its poopoo platter, please remember more strongly the things that brought us happiness. Such as:

  • This catman who gives a cat a bath WHILE rapping. Is he a wizard? A rapper? A w-rapper?
  • New technology in genetics means we are SO CLOSE to the fountain of youth, or Gattaca or Sharktopus, please thank you.
  • Angela and Renee got to gallivant in England and France and hoarded stuphs!
  • Also, any year spent in the company of healthy loved ones, including Miss Roxy, can be considered a good year.

Here we are on a Manhattan rooftop wishing you a Happy 2017! May this year be the right time for your endeavors to be met with success and all your wishes to finally arrive!

Other stuphs that brought Angela and I much happiness in 2016:

To Whoom It May Concern – History of Whoo Gongjinhyang In Yang Neck & Face Sleeping Repair

Whooohooooo!!!!! I entirely furrrgot that I had this until my lazy ass looked through the drafts for posting on our site and saw this succulent luscious beauty staring back at me. I bought this months prior to leaving to London for the summer, and since this is a fairly thick moisturizing cream, didn’t touch it except for decanting some for Angela.

Behold the History of Whoo In Yang Neck & Face Sleeping Repair

Now that summer’s truly over, I find myself going back to this thick, luscious, creamy goodness that is The History of Whoo. Whoo has never let me down.

Rubba Dub Dub – Dr. Jart Rubber Mask (Bright Lover)

Sunday nights have always been kind of funny. It’s a gloomy time the weekend is over. It’s stressful because I  have about 1,365,752 hours of work to squeeze into the week. It’s also a time for decompression and reflection. This week, this month, this year, has been difficult.

I met with crushing disappointment as icing on this crap of a week cake. But I fervently prayed that I can relax with ease into the unknown, trusting that all will unfold in the right way at the right time, and that the Universe has my back.

In any case, I will ALWAYS have my fking awesome beauty routine. Because looking good is half the battle. As a cheerer-upper, as you Beauty Queens know, making that reflection smile at you is one of the best things you can do to pick yourself back up.

Sweet’N Low (pH): Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect First Serum 2X Essential Review

Business Apeach not included.

This is a quick and lazy review. Why? Because I’ve basically already reviewed ::inhales deeply:: Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect First Serum 2X Essential ::exhales:: in its previous incarnation: Black Sugar Perfect First Serum No. 1 Original, reviewed here.

Down to the scent, consistency, and effects–I seriously can’t tell the difference other than the bottle being smaller than I remembered. The amount, 120 ml, is the same though.

A little background: Sometime after I reviewed the original one, Skinfood discontinued it and released 2 new versions: 2X Light for oily skin and 2X Essential for dry skin.  Continue reading “Sweet’N Low (pH): Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect First Serum 2X Essential Review”

Necks and the City: purpletale Once Upon a Neck Cream Review

01-neck-care

Let’s talk about necks, ba-by! Let’s talk about you and me.  -Salt-N-Pepa

I don’t think I’m sticking my neck out when I say that most people overlook theirs. Not enough moisture or anti-aging ingredients, and too many lines from looking down at your phone for Neko Atsume updates.  (When will I spot Guy Furry?!)

Well, purpletale’s neck cream may be just what giraffe-ter. Continue reading “Necks and the City: purpletale Once Upon a Neck Cream Review”

Muzi-c to My Ears: The Face Shop Natural Sun Eco Baby Mild Sun Cream

While frolicking with Angela in Flushing, Queens, in July, we came across The Face Shop which had the ENTIRE line of The Face Shop x KaKao Friends collection. Not one to hesitate at grabbing ANYTHING cyyyute and yellow, I was immediately drawn to the below.

And yes, I am posting something I saw in July for TWO reasons: I spent July-September in Europe with crappy wi-fi. And I just actually finished the entire tube of this, so the experiment is complete.

A Bunch of Grapes: 5 Purple Eyeliners

01 Best Purple EyelinerNext to a bright lip, colored eyeliner is my favorite way to party up my look.  With my hooded lids, the color is just a flash whenever I blink or look down.

I love the color purple (not the movie, although that was good, too), so I’ve amassed a small collection of purple eyeliners (incl. one from Korean brand Touch in Sol).  Here they are, starting with my most to least favorite:

  1. NYX Vivid Blossom ($7; liquid)
  2. Stila Royal ($22 if you can find this discontinued gem; liquid)
  3. Tarte Fairy Wings ($21; gel)
  4. Ardency Inn Lilac ($20; pencil)
  5. Touch in Sol Galactic Girl ($16; pencil)

First, swatch heaven:
