Sephora Deluxe Fragrance Sampler for Her Review ❤

Dear Girls ❤

*Climbs out from under a rock*
HELLO WINTER BREAK!! No school for 3 weeks (: SORRY EVERYONE! I know I said I would review the L'Oreal Project Runway blushes but since the stores stopped selling them... I thought why do a review since it wouldn't help much... SORRY!! ><

I decided to do a review on the Sephora Deluxe Fragrance Sampler for Her because I thought it would make a GREAT Christmas present for girls. I know fragrances are something that you can't just randomly pick and like... fragrances are personal!! So it is very hard to buy someone a fragrance because it is not certain that they will like it. Something like this would definitely help someone pick a fragrance they like for themselves!

I purchased this on for originally $50 but I had the $15 off coupon for Beauty Insiders so it was $38 including tax & shipping was free because it is a purchase over $50 before coupons and such.

The box looks really pretty so it is definitely good to give as a gift. My boyfriend saw this and said "it looks expensive"! 

This is the sleeve it comes in, so if you purchase this at the Sephora store, it looks like this. The first picture is after I took this sleeve off.

The Sampler includes:
- A refillable atomizer + funnel (On the left)
- 12 different samples of perfume
Bvlgari Mon Jasmin Noir Eau de Parfum 
Clinique Happy Eau de Parfum 
Coach Poppy Flower Eau de Parfum 
Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Eau de Toilette 
DKNY pureDKNY Verbena Scent Spray 
Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioa Eau de Parfum 
Givenchy Very Irresistible L'Intense Eau de Parfum 
Gucci Guilty Eau de Toilette 
Juicy Couture Eau de Parfum 
Marc Jacbos Daisy Eau de Toilette 
Prada Infusion D'Iris Eau de Parfum 
Versace Bright Crystal Eau de Toilette 
& A coupon to redeem a full size version of a fragrance that you choose from the sampler (On the right)

The Scent Certificate that you bring into any Sephora store (not the ones in JCPenney) to redeem the full size perfume of your choice

These are the "full size" perfume choices that you have (Click the picture to enlarge)
One bad thing about this is that many of the "full size" perfumes are 1 oz. perfumes.. not the regular 1.7oz or 3.4oz perfume that many of us consider "full size"

Here is the list of "full" size perfumes (& prices of each) that you can redeem:
- .84 oz Bvlgari Mon Jasmin Noir Eau de Parfum - $45
- 3.4 oz Clinique Happy - $55
- 1.0 oz Coach Poppy Flower Eau de Parfum - $45
- .8 oz Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Eau de Toilette - $48
- 1.0 oz DKNY pureDKNY Verbana - $45 
- 1.0 oz Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioa Eau de Parfum - $39.50
- 1.0 oz Givenchy Very Irresistible L'Intense Eau de Parfum - $48
- 1.0 oz Gucci Guilty Eau de Toilette - $55
- 1.0 oz Juicy Couture Eau de Parfum - $52
- 1.8 oz Marc Jacbos Daisy Eau de Toilette - $62
- 1.0 oz Prada Infusion D'Iris Eau de Parfum - $59
- 1.0 oz Versace Bright Crystal Eau de Toilette - $50

So if you look at the list, the ones that are worth more than the deluxe sampler are:
Clinique Happy
Gucci Guilty
Juicy Couture
Marc Jacobs Daisy
Prada Infusion 

The other ones are worth less than the deluxe sampler, but this sampler is still definitely a fun thing to give to someone who is not sure which perfume they would like to purchase.
If you or you know someone who already wishes to purchase Marc Jacobs Daisy (like me), you can buy this for yourself for $50, redeem Marc Jacob Daisy worth $62 and save $12 (: Which is what I did.. hehe!

I already wanted Marc Jacob Daisy before I discovered this sampler but it was hard for me to shell out $62 for a bottle of perfume, so when I had the $15 off and saw this sampler, I had to purchase it because it is like paying $38 for a $62 item (:
Or paying $50 for a $62 item (:

Photo from
I haven't redeemed my perfume yet because I purchased the Deluxe Sampler for Him, for my boyfriend because he thought my sampler was so cool.... So I am waiting for him to pick his cologne and we can redeem them together~
YES there is a male version too! (:
Photos from
Left is For Her
Right is For Him
In the end, this is a great present to give to someone else if they are not sure which fragrance to pick, or a gift to yourself if you are not sure! & After you pick your favorite perfume, you can give the other samples you don't like to your friends who like that scent! I like to keep these samples in my makeup bag because even though the atomizer is small... it's not THAT small so the samples are very handy.
PS. Did you know you can ask for fragrance samples are Sephora?? I just discovered this last week. Just give the perfume you would like a sample of to a Sephora Beauty Associate and they will help make you a small atomizer of the scent you would like to try out. It's incredibly convenient because perfume is expensive! You definitely want to make sure you like the perfume you purchase or else you will either waste the perfume & leave it sitting on your counter, or if you return the perfume to the store, the store will just throw away the full perfume bottle after refunding you. 

Happy Holidays!! I hope all of you guys are spending quality time with your families (:  

Sincerely, mimi

Sorry For My Hiatus!! ❤

Hii Girlies~ 

I am so sorry I have not been updating my blog recently! I transferred universities and the new university that I am attending is so rigorous! o___o I have not had enough time to review makeup ): I really miss my blog!! Thank you everyone who commented on my blog wondering where I was >< I feel so special that people actually remembered me!! (; I will not be doing a review today but I will just tell you about my latest obsessions in terms of makeup! I've been obsessed with getting the (semi) New Limited Edition L'Oreal Project Runway Collection of blushes. Last last week I seriously HAD to get all of them because I heard really good reviews on all of them. So I went with my boyfriend to Ulta but of course they were sold out... so called up every single drug store near me to ask if they were in stock and none of them were... So it was about 12 oclock midnight and I find a Walgreens 15 miles away that has 2 of the blushes in stock so my boyfriend drove me to Walgreens to get the 2 blushes...

I know I'm obsessed (: But I'm so glad I got them... I got the Sultry Raven's Blush & Charming Cockatoo & I'm loving both of them! Sultry Raven is the perfect dolly pink and Charming Cockatoo is a more bolder pink. I have ordered the other two (Watchful Owl and Audacious Amazon) on so they will be arriving soon! But if any of you have the chance, definitely try them because they are so pigmented and smooth! & they come with .35 ounces of product! Which is a pretty good amount. NYX powder blushes have .18 ounces so the L'Oreal blushes are about double the NYX blushes!

Such pretty packaging (:
I'll probably be reviewing all of them at the same time when I have the time! ><
Midterms are almost over!!

Thank you for reading & have a great weekend! 

Sincerely, mimi

& My 100+ Follower Giveaway Winner is...❤

Hello everyone! ❤

I'm going to make this short because I have to continue reading my book for class ): But I just wanted to say congratulations to...

Shop N' Chomp

for winning my first blog giveaway! (: 

I will be emailing you shortly~ I put everyone's names, according to how many entries they had, into Excel and just picked a random number via (: 
There were 122 entries total! 

It was interesting to see how old people though I was haha~ Which is why I put in that question (if you answered right or wrong I still gave you an extra entry (: ) But a lot of people actually gave an age that was older than I really was! Which was surprising because people always guess that I'm younger than I really am.
I'm 19 btw (: Alot of you guys guessed right! or knew from previous posts, etc.

Thank you everyone who joined! (: If you joined just for the giveaway, I understand if you want to unfollow me right now and I won't feel bad if you do XD But if you genuinely followed me because you like my posts then thank you so much! I really wish I could give something to each of my readers because I did not expect that I would have so many followers. I started this blog because I always read reviews/swatches of other peoples' blogs when I was just starting on makeup and I needed help, but I felt like I needed to contribute to the sea of swatches/reviews that others could use! (: 

I wish I could post more on this blog but homework/summer school is really taking up so much of my time.. Thank you so much for everyone who stuck through with me since the beginning! (: I love each and every one of you guys~

Sincerely, mimi ❤

NYX Matte Lipstick in Tea Rose Review + Swatch ❤

Hii Lovelies~ ❤

I hope those living in the US had a great 4th of July & played with or saw fireworks! (: & I hope those living internationally had a great weekend! My family and I went on a tour of Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo this weekend and the weather is so much nicer in the beach area than the inland area~ It's like 100 degrees over here right now... but it was a nice 70-ish degrees at Santa Barbara (: 

Today, I will be doing a review on the new NYX Matte Lipstick in the shade "Tea Rose" (: Although the name "Tea Rose" is synonymous with the popular shade of "Tea Rose" of the NYX Round Case Lipstick, the colors are slightly different~ So don't buy this lipstick thinking that it is a matte version of the Round Case Lipstick version! ^^

Onto the product! (:

The packaging of this lipstick is a matte black tube, which represents the matte-ness of this lipstick :D
Smart packaging~ hahaha

My 10 Favorites & Lipstick Tag ❤

Hii Dolls~ ❤

I'm hoping to update more often now that I'm done with finals and onto another school session! >< I was tagged a while ago by Rinny  for the 10 Favorites tag & I was recently tagged by Katie for the Lipstick tag (:  Sorry I haven't done the Favorites tag in like 2 months! I'm so ashameddddd ): but now I found the time to do both of them! Please do check out Rinny or Katie's blog if you haven't already because they are such great bloggers & they are just so sweet~ ^^

- - - - 10 Favorites Tag - - - - 

These are in absolutely no particular order (: 

1. Hello Kitty Perfume ❤

I have a really sensitive nose and  many smells just end up giving me a headache, but this perfume smells sooooo good... I can't stop smelling it. It smells light and florally, but not too strong like many other perfumes~ Plus, I like that this is a rollerball because I don't like spraying perfume on myself  ): Because it just makes me feel all wet & soggy x__x the full size version of this perfume is so cute though! I just might have to buy it....

Josie Maran My Favorite Argan Powders Review + Giveaway ❤

Hii Girlies~ ❤

Sorry I have been MIA this past week! >< but I have still been on Blogger replying to your comments and surfing your blogs though (: I just didn't have time to do a review! School just ended for me last week so I took a week off to hang out with friends and go out with my boyfriend~ (: Now that I had a week off, summer school starts for me today! ): But that means time to do a review!~ ^^

I will do a review on something that I recently purchased & LOVE! Josie Maran recently had a sale on their My Favorite Argan Powders Palette which was originally $45 but they were having a sale and the palette was $20, because they are unfortunately discontinuing it! WHYYY??? If any of you read/watch Jen or frmheadtotoe on Blogspot or YouTube, you probably heard of how much she loves her Josie Maran My Favorite Argan Powders Palette. I saw how pretty & versatile the colors were and her review/swatches totally made me fall in love with the palette. Unfortunately, it was $45 at the time, so I could not afford to buy it, but once it was $20 on sale, I just HAD to jump on the occasion. I purchased 3 palettes total, 2 My Favorite Argan Palettes and 1 Wildflower Palette. The palettes are both available right now on their site in the "Good Buy's" section!

On to the review! (:

This palette is pretty small, about the size of a compact digital camera~
The case is a beautiful metallic pink and it is made of CORN!!
Josie Maran believes in using natural materials in their makeup and packaging to reduce waste, be natural and be beautiful at the same time (:

The colors are so gorgeous, I love each and every color~
but the blush on the right is what made me want this palette the most (:

These swatches are from top to bottom~
So the first 5 colors are the eyeshadows~
& then blush, bronzer, blush (:
Sorry for the horrible swatches! >< It was hard to fit everything~

The eyeshadows are so buttery and smooth~ It doesn't crease on my super oily lids either if I use it with my ELF primer! (:

The blushes & bronzer (: I love the blush on the right~

A look that I did with this palette (:
Pedo smile >:3

Love it! (:
P.S. Don't mind my caveman eyebrows x__x
I didn't tweeze my eyebrows for like a week... & I'm a noob at it so whatever! (: HEHEHEHE~

- - - - SMALL GIVEAWAY - - - - 

- - - PLEASE READ - - -
Sooo.. last week, I said that I wanted to thank all of my followers for helping me reach 100+ & for following my blog even though I am horrible at updating~ ^^ I was planning to giveaway my other My Favorite Argan Palette because I know many of you would love the versatile colors! BUT I thought to myself that not everyone would probably like what I like, so I have decided that I will let you choose what you actually want if you win (; For my giveaway, I want you to be able to choose any makeup item that I have reviewed/hauled in my blog (aka any makeup I talked about before this post & no I will not give you my old/used makeup lolol, I will buy you a new one) Since many of you do not live in the US, some of the makeup that I review is not available to you, so I want you to have a chance to win it if you really like it (the My Favorite Argan Palette is still available for you to choose if you want it too) So for example, if you win, you can choose the Physician's Formula eyeliner if you want, the NYX blush/lip gloss, Skin79/Missha BB Cream, Japonesque Eyelash curler, etc etc, hehe that means you have to go through all my old posts (;

Yes you get the tiara too because I think you all are princesses :D

Sorry this giveaway is a little small, but I am a poor, sloth-like college student~ (:

This giveaway is open internationally! (:

1. You must be a follower of my blog (publicly)
Write down your GFC name please (:
2. Leave your email address, to contact you if you win ❤
(if you use the commenter thing I have on the bottom, just put your email in there & I will have it, so you don't have to post it publicly)
3. What makeup would you want if you won?*
*Please read my giant paragraph above relating to my giveaway... I know it's a giant paragraph but... it relates to my giveaway.. ><

Extra Entries:
+1 Link the giveaway picture on your blog's sidebar
+1 Make a post about my giveaway & copy down the link in your comment
+1 What is my boyfriend's name? HEHE~ 
A little birdy told me that new commenters can just look at previous comments for my boyfriend's name x__x so this doesn't count! For the ones that already answered, good job, I will still count your extra point though (:
So my new +1 question is:
+1 How old am I?

Winner will be announced July 31~

Thank you everyone for reading!~ & have a great summer ❤

Ulta Haul Again!! ❤

Hii Lovelies~ ❤

I hope all of you are doing well!~ School is almost over!! & some lucky students got out of school already~ >< & some graduated!! Congratulations (: This weekend, I went with my boyfriend to Ulta to take advantage of their Buy 2 Get 1 Free sale~ yayyy~ I purchased some NYX and Physician's Formula products~

From Left to Right, Clockwise

1. Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips Eye Enhancing Gel Eyeliner for Hazel Eyes
(They ran out of "for Brown Eyes" ): ) But I like the Hazel Eyes strip because it has a tiny amount of pink shimmer to make eyes pop!~
2. NYX Round Case Lipstick in Milan
3. NYX Round Case Lipstick in Tea Rose 
4. NYX Round Case Lipstick in Doll
5. NYX Powder Blush in Pinched (Supposedly a NARS Orgasm dupe)
6. Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Blush & Highlighter in Healthy Glow
7. Physician's Formula Multi-Colored Light Bronzer for Light to Medium Skin

I bought these on separate occasions and used the Ulta $5 off $10 purchase both times~ & when I was buying the Physician's Formula stuff, I used two $5 off Physician's Formula products coupons & the bronzer had a $4 off instantly coupon on it, so I paid about $8 for 3 Physician's Formula products and $5 for 3 NYX products~ ^^ What a great deal!!

I will definitely review these items soon!! Sorryyyyy I have this 15 page marketing plan due next week o___o & I heard that in a class of 300 students... only 1% can get an A... which means only 3 students!! Wahhhhh~ >< Must try hard!!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

In lighter news, my boyfriend bought 2 hamsters!!~ They are sisters~ ^^ Twins! They are soooo cute~ ><
Can you say AWWWWWWWWWWWWWW?~ ><
Please look forward to my reviews soon & have a nice day! ^^

E.L.F eyeslipsface Review & Swatches - Pic Heavy ❤

Hiii Girls~ ❤

First of all, I would like to thank all of my new & loyal followers!~ ^^ I never expected to have 60 followers in only 1+ month of blogging~ T___T You guys are theee best!~ ^^ Seeing all of your comments brighten my day~ (: Sorry I haven't done a review in more than a week! O: I was so busy with midterms and projects I felt so swamped!~ But now I'm free so I will do a huge review on all of my E.L.F products, new and old~

I recently purchased new brushes from E.L.F because I felt that I needed some new brushes for my continuously growing collection of makeup~ hahaha~ Anyways~ Back to my review! ^^

As many people know, E.L.F makeup and makeup tools are priced extremely well~ With most of their regular items being $1, their Studio items being $3, and their sets, palettes and kits priced reasonably as well, E.L.F is highly recommended for their cheap prices~ Although most of their items are indeed cheap, one must do some research before spending money on anything, even if it only costs $1-$3~ Money is money! ^^

I will be doing a review on the following:

ELF Tone Correcting Concealer - Light Beige - $1

Missha M Perfect Cover vs. Skin79 Hot Pink Upgrade BB Cream ❤

Hii girls~ ❤

I held a poll this week and Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream #23 received the most votes! But, I've decided to review the Missha M Perfect Cover & Skin79 Hot Pink BB Cream because these two seem to be the most popular BB creams on the market~ & when I was choosing between buying these two, I had a hard time picking because there were different good/bad things about both of them! I hope I can help someone out by comparing/contrasting these two BB creams~ ^^

In this review, I will be going over; Color, Texture, Smell, Pore Coverage & Oiliness of the two BB creams.

My skin color is around NC 25-30
My skin type is Oily/Combination

Note: This post is extremely pic heavy so please click "Read More" if you want to read more~❤

*Promotion Ended* Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream (Travel Size) for Only $1

 Hii lovelies~

I just wanted to tell everyone that the travel size (20mL) Perfect Cover BB Cream is only $1 on the Missha US website! (: They have the #21 & #23 color~ #21 is for ivory/very light skin (NC 20-25) & #23 is for (NC25-35)

- - - -> Missha Perfect Cover $1 <- - - -

The "flash sale" only lasts 2 days so get it fast! I have this BB Cream in the #23 color and I like it~ The coverage is really good, but if you have oily skin like me, it will make your face REALLY oily!! So beware~ It's better for dry skin. It is somewhat heavy too, so a little goes a long way~ I want to try to Skin79 Hot Pink BB Cream next because it's summer & I don't like heavy-feeling things on my skin when it's hot~ ><

The $1 does not include shipping though ): But if you sign up on their site today, you get 10% off your first order! ^^

Sincerely, mimi ❤

2 Year Anniversary with my Boyfriend ❤

Hii lovelies~ ❤

Today is my 2 year anniversary with my boyfriend~ ^^ We decided to celebrate it this weekend because we both have to attend college today & study hard! >< Midterms are this week & next week ):

On Saturday, we went to this garden in LA~ it was sooo pretty! I think it was called Descano Gardens~

On the way to the Garden~ Alex is being old school & looking at paper directions because I stole his GPS for my car~ ^^

I like taking pics in the car because the lighting is nice~ ^^ 

This part of the garden reminds me of Alice in Wonderland! ^^

Tulips are in season~ (:

- - - - - - - -

Shabu Shabu/Fondue for dinner~
I wanted to try another fondue place after a horrible experience at Melting Pot last last week ):

yayyy i love meat~

Having fun with Alex's Fujifilm Instax~ XD

Green Tea chocolate fondue! (:
It didn't really taste like green tea though~ More like white chocolate, but it was still good~

Now that this weekend is over, I miss my boyfriend! We don't get to see each other everyday like we did in High School, because we both go to separate colleges~ ):

Do any of you guys have boyfriends that go to different schools? How do you deal with it?~ ><

Sincerely, mimi ❤

Ulta Mini Haul~~ ^^

Hii everyone~ 

YAY it's finally Friday!! Yesterday, I went to Ulta with my roommate/friend Tiffany aka Tiffo! We went to Ulta to buy some makeup from their 40% off sale on Maybelline, Revlon and NYX! The sale was so amazing... I was like a kid in a candy store~ But I ultimately only bought 4 things~ 2 NYX lip glosses, 1 NYX blush & 1 Maybelline Mascara~

Starting from the top, clockwise
1. NYX lip gloss in Salsa
2. NYX lipgloss in Pound Cake
3. Maybelline Define A Lash
4. NYX Mosaic Blush in Rosey

I will have reviews for these soon! but I will tell you right now that the Maybelline Define-A-Lash is SO hard to wash off... I tried it yesterday and 4 of my precious lashes fell out~ T____T

We shopped around at this outdoor mall called Victoria Garden~ & it's so prettyy! I love that place (: 

& while we were walking, Tiffany spotted this bird's nest right in the P of JCPenny!!! AHAHAHAHA~ We thought it was so hilarious, we just stood there pointing at it and laughing while other shoppers tried to find what was so funny... hehe...~
*embarrassed ><

I took this picture of my turtle Hayden today! (: He lives with a bunch of guppies & surprisingly, he doesn't eat them! What a nice turtle~ ^^ I have a turtle, 1 mom guppy, 1 dad guppy & 20 baby guppies >< and a fat adorable hamster named Hami~ 

Hami doing what he's best at~~ Eating sunflower seeds ><

Anyways~ I have so many projects to do this weekend ): College is so tiring... I have severe dark circles under my eyes like a panda @_@ 

I saw this video & it's so cute!! I want that dog~ ><
so smart~~~

Hope everyone had a great week! & have a fun weekend 

Sincerely, mimi

Rimmel Glam Eyes Mascara Review

Hii~ ♥

The weather has been so weird recently in California~ It was around 80-90°F (27-32°C) last week & today was around 60°F (15°C)! I have such a hard time picking clothes in the morning because I hate wearing jeans and if i wear leggings, it might be too cold/hot~ ):

Anyways~ ^^ I will be reviewing the Rimmel Glam Eyes Mascara today! Again, I was struck by the packaging. hehe~ I was shopping at Target for mascara and I saw this for around $5.99 on sale and I just bought it! The mascara states that it is "Ultra Volume, high definition mascara" but from my experience when using it, I think it is more lengthening than volumizing.

Packaging always gets me~ ><

So princesslike~ ^^

Defining brush~

More like super lengthening~

Uncurled natural lashes~


After applying mascara~ Notice how some eyelashes clump?

If your mascara clumps together, use the left side of this (lash comb) to brush out the clumps for a more natural look~ (I bought this at Ulta for $1.29)

All brushed out! My lashes look super long o__o

1. Natural/Uncurled
2. Curled
3. Applied mascara
4. Combed out the mascara

Glam Eyes is non-waterproof. Although I have taken a 2 hour nap with my mascara on and there was little to no flaking~ Just don't cry! ><

My everyday school face~

Conclusion: This mascara is great for lengthening lashes, but does minimal in volumizing. The mascara holds your curl pretty well and is definitely worth it for the price. Rimmel has $2 off coupons on their Facebook page and in the weekly Sunday Los Angeles Times, so you can save even more! (:

Thank you for reading! & have a great week~ It's almost Friday >< 

Sincerely, mimi 
PS: I really need a volumizing mascara right now because my lashes look like spider legs when they are too long~ >< Any suggestions?
