Missha Healing Snail 3D Sheet Mask review

Hi guys~~ Today I am going to do a review on Missha Healing Snail 3D Sheet Mask because I really really like it. X)   I was given this as a souvenir and I think it's worth buying it as it has an excellent effect. :3   This sheet mask contains 'snail serum' which is said to be good at 'boosting skin regeneration + healing', and 'improving elasticity + moisture skin content with continued use'.    'Snail serum' is actually quite popular among some people and I think as long as you don't think the mask = a snail, everything is fine! XD  The mask is moisturising and works really well. :)

Here are the photos and swatches of the mask.

This is the look of its package. :)

The mask claims that it's specially designed and has a 3D shape which would fit everyone's face very well.   However, I think the shape of the mask is rather usual and not really '3D'... (but it's still comfortable to wear on my face :3)

This photo is taken after I have worn the mask for 15 minutes.   It dries out quite a lot but is still sticking to my skin. :3

As what you can see from the photo, the mask is really thin.   It's therefore very comfortable to use but I need to be really careful when I am wearing the mask that it's quite easy (for me?) to tear it! XD

The mask is always sticking to my skin and is really moisturising.   I always enjoy using it as it can really tighten and soften my skin (even though the mask is rather 'fragile'). :3   There is also extra essence in the package to be applied on face so the 'snail serum' has a better effect. :)   I really like this mask after all and I would recommend it to you if you are interested in Missha masks and wants a moisturising one. :D

Well, this is the end of my post!  Thank you for reading it and see you next time! :DD

Trip to Snowdonia? Training camp for Costa Rica! XD

Hihi~~ :P I didn't update my blog for a week (or more? @.@'') again... Sorry... ><"" It's actually because I was sick in the last whole week (@.@ had no energy) and also because I went to Snowdonia in Wales for a training camp to my Costa Rica trip! :3  The trip lasted for 3 days - Friday afternoon until Sunday afternoon.    It was tiring and hard for me because I have never go onto something like this before (didn't go to any DOE or something similar...) and I am not very use to have a 'basic' lifestyle like this... :P    Anyway, I enjoyed the trip as I enjoyed the time I was with my friends... :)

(from left to right) Emma, Jasmine and Jane

We all had a good time there and came back to school safely! (Although we all became sick afterwards...till now =.='')   Here are some photos of my trip and my feeling of it! :D


Day 1 ~ Preparation + Arrival

Before we went to Snowdonia and to the campsite, we went to Sainsbury to buy what we are going to eat during the weekend.   Our group - Emma, Jasmine, Jane & me (there's too many people in my team) decided to go for spaghetti, instant pasta and soup.   We also bought belvista beakfast biscuits and some chocolate bars for breakfast and snacks. XD

After a two and a half hour journey, we arrived at the Llyn Gwynant Campsite at night and I took a few of the campsite!  But first, here are some photos I taken when we were going there by the school's minibus.

Full of rucksacks!!! :D

The window looks so pretty! XD 

This is the campsite!  It was so dark and I couldn't really see anything!! ><"" It was really hard for me to put up the tent as well.... ><

The very creepy moon... @.@


Day 2: Trekking

Day 2 was the real thing... We had to go to another 'more remote' campsite from the Llyn Gwynant Campsite which would take a few hours of trekking, also carrying our >60L rucksacks ><".    I was really worried that I wouldn't make it but it turned out very well and I managed to stay in the middle or the front of the team most of the time.    The weather wasn't particularly good but was still very comfortable. :D   Here are photos taken on that day.

Packing up our stuff in the morning~

It was very misty in the morning... :3

Hello Jasmine! XD  Let's start our adventure!

The river seems very adorable! XD

Sheeeeeeep!!!! (right hand side)

Since my new art coursework is related to sheep and I really like sheep, I have taken many photos of them as they are everywhere in Wales!

Since we started early, we arrived at the new campsite (I didn't know what's its name ><) around 3:30 pm.    Surprisingly there was signal :0 and I was finally able to call my family and friends! :DDD  We then started to build our tent and to cook our dinner!!   Our first attempt of cooking spaghetti failed @.@ but we succeeded in the second time and it was yummy! :DD  We slept early and had fully regain our energy but it was so cold that night! ><""

There was a beautiful lake in the new campsite and it was also where we got water from!   I tries my first time ever in my life to use a chlorine tablet to kill bacteria in my water (lake water) and I discovered I really can't stand its taste!!! XDD  It seemed like I was drinking swimming pool water! XD

My tent! XD


Day 3: Going back!

We woke up at 7:15 in the morning and started to pack our stuff and cook our breakfast!  We were going back to the Llyn Gwynant Campsite so we can get all our stuff on the minibus and go back to the college.   There's actually a faster way to go back to the Llyn Gwynant Campsite (around 1.5 to 2 hours) and we planned to arrive there around 12 to 1 pm. :)  That day had a fantastic weather indeed!  It was really sunny and all the scenery was just breath-taking! 

We arrived on time and I finally got the chance to really look at the campsite.   The campsite looked really nice and I took many photos of it.

There's also a lake in this campsite. :)

Beautiful sunshine!

Emma was standing on a rock in water. XD

A splendid water reflection!

Reflection of the sunshine... so beautiful!! :)

The sky was so pretty!

Walking around~~

Jane was drawing a cat on the sand! XDD

Birds' footprints!


Emma also made a video of this trip and it is really good as it really shows our 'life' in the training camp! XD  Here's the link of it:

Well, this is the end of my adventure!   I hope that my Costa Rica trip in summer would be as good as this one and thank you for reading it! XD   See you next time! <3

Stila Merry & Bright Palette and Lip Glaze Set

    Hi guys~~ I received a belated birthday present XD from Christy last month and I decided to do a review for it because I loved it sooooo much!! :DD    It's a Stila 'Merry and Bright' eye shadow palette and lip glaze set.    I personally really like products from Stila because I am so satisfied by it's 'Seeing stars smudge stick waterproof eye liner set' - they have excellent colours and are easy to use!    I think I might do a review of it later but let's look at the review of this make up set first! :)

The cover of the palette looks good and is really cute! XD

The back of the palette... its tells you what the names of the eye shadows and the lip + cheek cream are!

The interior of the palette... there are a tutorial on how to use these make up products and a small mirror~

This is the tutorial but I usually don't follow it!  I just apply the eye shadows in the way I want! XD

Eye shadow (clockwise and from the top): Chill, Glisten, Joyful, Ebony, Butterscotch, Molasses
At the bottom: Lillium

The colours of the eye shadows are very good.   They are a little bit similar to the Urban Decay Naked Palettes (but much cheaper) and I find it very useful that the colours are very 'naked' and pale.   Um... I don't mean that the colours are weird and have low qualities but I actually mean that these colours are very suitable to wear to school or to wear it everyday that they are not too obvious and exaggerating.   They are also very easy to apply and would stay for quite a long time. :3

The pink cream (?) at the bottom is actually a 'convertible colour' that it can be used as a lip or a cheek cream. XD  Um... I think it's more suitable to be used as a blush colour! :P

 This is the lip glaze included in the whole make up set and I really like it because of it beautiful colour.   It's 'Kitten B1' and has a yellowish brown colour with pretty golden glitters on top.    This lip glaze is not very sticky though and I think it's still quite comfortable to wear it for the whole day. :) 

Here are the swatches of the eye shadows, the convertible cream XD and the lip gloss!  
><" Sorry that the colour of 'Kitten' is a bit weird... it looks really pretty in real life... @.@"  Its colour is the same as what it looks like in the second-last photo!

My favourites are : Glisten, Molasses and Kitten. :D

Well, this is the end of my post today!   Thank you for reading it and I hope you like it! :D   See you next time~~ <3
