K Talk: Current songs I'm loving

Hi guys!

First K-talk in 2013! There have been a few songs released this year already, some songs that I've discovered only a few days ago and some that really stood out for me during the last few days of 2012. If you're a fan of KPOP and need something new to listen to then check some of these out.

1. Infinite H - Special Girl
 My favourite song of the year so far and the only song that has fully explained my love life. The song is  really addicting to listen to and I've listened to their album since it came out on repeat since. I literally love all of the songs from the album. 
 Check out the showcase performance (definitely my favourite performance) here.

2. B.A.P - Goodbye
 If you're more into rock songs then you will probably like this song. My friend let me listen to this song on her phone and the first 20 seconds of it, I knew I was going to listen to it on repeat for days, which I have done.
 Check it out here.

3. G.NA and Sanchez - Beautiful Day
 One of the many duets I really love listening to. To me their voices compliment each other really well and the song itself sounds really nice. 
 Check it out here.

4. Byul and Shorry (Mighty Mouth) - Reminds me of you
 If you're a regular drama watcher, you will know that there's always a song that pretty much represents the drama since it's played on repeat throughout the show. To me this is one of those songs that will stay a classic and one you will never forget. 
 Check it out here

5. S.M The Performance - Spectrum
 This song came out last year during the 'end of year' performances and the first time I watched it, I knew I was hooked to the song. This is more of a 'techno/ computerised' (no proper instruments) song which I usually don't like, but I listened to this song so much its topped my itunes list for 'most played'. Not sure why, but this song sounds like a song you would listen to at new years eve parties. 
 Check out the opening performance here.

Review: Innisfree Camellia Sun Hair Mist

Hi guys!

I bought this while I was in South Korea last year (which I don't think I mentioned in my haul) because my hair was going into chaos then. It was winter the time I went and my ends felt dry and extremely brittle - even more brittle than the time I bleached my hair. When I would brush my hair there would be so many breakages. I kind of got scared, so I needed something that would be quick and easy to use on my hair that wouldn't keep my hair weighed down which most serums can do. 

Enriched with camellia oil from Jeju Island, Innisfree's Camellia hair products impact healthy shine and silky softness to your hair by repairing dry and damaged hair cuticles.

Formulated with Jeju camellia ingredients which deeply penetrate into the hair to replenish amino acids to your damaged hair, this product helps to reveal shiny and soft hair. The UV filter ingredients form a barrier coating to prevent hair from bleach, dryness and damage caused by sun exposure.

Can be used on both dry and wet hair.

The first thing I did was spray a few sprits on my hair after I've washed and towel dried it and by the time my hair fully dried I could notice a HUGE difference in my hair. It was softer and less prone to breakage. Did I mention that I noticed a DIFFERENCE WITHIN THE FIRST USE!! There is a scent to it but it isn't strong and I actually really like the scent. It isn't a typical floral smell but it doesn't really smell like a hair product (if that makes sense...)

I'm so sad that I didn't get the chance to get backups of this because it is really hard to find! I've been looking high and low for this online and I can't seem to find it. I've come across it once on Gmarket but I can't seem to find it again T_T. They also have different products from this line - shampoo, conditioners, serums

- strengthens hair within the first use
- keeps hair soft and frizz free
- fresh, not overpowering scent

- EXTREMELY hard to find

Will I repurchase? Definitely once I can find it.
WIll I try the other products from the line? YES!!

Birthday Items

It was my birthday in December and my friends got together to get me two surprise presents. If you guys are reading this, THANK YOU!!

I really love all of the scents but my favorite has to be Peppermint Shimmer (I'm a sucker for peppermint scented stuff). This actually does have shimmers in it but the shimmers do fade away after a few hours. 

These Philosophy items smell really good! I haven't used the big bottle yet. The gloss is a bit sticky on the lips but the smell is soooo goood!!! There is a slight raspberry taste to it as well which I don't mind. 

NYX Purchases! (mini review)

Hi there!

So this is another online purchase that I made during my online shopping spree, but I couldn't be bothered to do a post on it until now. Oh and by the way, HAPPY NEW YEAR GUYS! Hope you all had a relaxing time with your friends and family. 

This was my first time trying any of NYX's products so I was super excited. I got these items on cherryculture.com.

NYX eyeshadows: Iced mocha, Dark grey and True taupe

I haven't used these on my eyes yet but from the swatches, I'm quite impressed! Iced mocha was quite pigmented and had little to no fallout in the pan. Dark grey is a matte and needed a few swipes for the swatch above but still quite nice. True taupe is also matte but is more pigmented than Dark grey.

Will I buy more of these? a big YES!!

NYX soft matte lip cream: Tokyo and Antwerp
Product description:
It's not lipstick, nor is it gloss. It's like nothing you've experienced before. It's lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte.

I've used these a few times so far and I'm really liking them! These are pretty much like how they are described. Creamy and matte. They feel really smooth on the lips but one thing I find with these is that they can seem dry on the lips (which other bloggers/youtubers have come across). When I use these I would first put a really heavy duty lip balm or gloss first and then put these lip creams on. That way it doesn't look and feel so dry on the lips but still gives a matte finish. 

Will I buy more? Yes!

NYX Lip smacking fun colors:  Watermelon and Frosted Beige

The colours I chose where more frosty than I thought, and quite similar to each other. They are really nice and glide on really nicely, but I find them too frosty for my liking. I use these by just dabbing these on the centre of the lips then blending out with a finger.

Will I buy more? probably not, only because I'm not so much of a lipstick lover. If you like lipsticks and on a budget then definitely try these out. 

From the items that I got, I'm really happy! If you guys have any NYX recommendations then leave them in the comments below!
