Everyday Makeup products!


Since some of you have been asking me to make a post about my everyday makeup products, I took some pictures of the products I use everyday! Honestly I don't use a lot of makeup because I really hate that cakey heavy face makeup. Even the stuff I barely use feels heavy to me! This is nothing special but I hope you enjoy! (: 

I know after this post some of you will ask for a makeup tutorial and I've been meaning to make one. I will try to make one soon, I promise!!

Let's start off with the base. I use the mineralize Mac foundation. I just bought a new one yesterday because I just finished the other bottle! My color is NC25 if you guys were wondering. I don't use a primer, I usually moisturize my face first before I put on my foundation though.

Next to my eyes, I don't exactly use eye shadows, but when I do I use the brown in this palette to buff it into my crease. You can find my review on this palette here. I love love this palette. 

I also use the lightest pink shadow to high light my brow bone, sometimes the white shade, but mostly the pink because I love how natural it shines. For high lighting my cheek bones and nose I use the Buff'd shadow in pearl shy because I am testing it out for them and I have to say it's really really amazing! The pigmentation is great. A small amount goes a long way. Their product is all in powder, which makes them very natural looking, it's similar to Bare Minerals, but these are more affordable for your pocket. As for contour I use the brown shade. It gives this really nice bronze look. I think these are worth the price. I would love to have them in their full containers.

Now this part is my favorite and probably yours too! For my amazing on fleek brows, lol jk, I use the Anastasia drip brow promade! It's amazing! I need to buy their brow wiz honestly. Anastasia, sponsor me. Lol jk but no really I love their stuff. They make my brows look so amazing and incredibly natural.

 I use Mac's blush in the shade Mocha for my cheeks. I use a very light hand on this blush because it can be very dark. I'm out of it, but I use the too faced lashgasm mascara. I need to go buy a new one. It makes my lashes really long, they're especially great for bottom lashes.

As for the primer, I use the Urban Decay primer potion. Now this one is not the regular purple potion you see all the time. I bought this one with a glittery tint because I thought it would be nice to just use as a base shadow as well. That way I don't have a lot going on in my eyes. I love love makeup but for an everyday look, I use less as possible.

My friend Amber just gave me this eyeliner not too long ago because I've been wanting to try it out, it's the Kat Von D tattoo liner. It's AMAZING. The pen is actually a bristle and not the sponge applicator most of these eyeliner pen has. The ink is very dark and it glides very smoothly. Holy grail. Must have.


Lastly for my lips, first I use the pro longwear lip liner in staunchly stylish, then I apply the matte lipstick in the shade Velvet teddy. Really enjoy this shade right now.

Here are all the brushes I use. Foundation, contour, blush, and another contour brush that I use on my nose. These brushes are from pixiwoo! Can be found in almost every drug store.

That's it! That's all I use. I'm sorry it isn't that interesting! I don't use much everyday, if you want I can make another post for a heavier look. I know you want a tutorial, and I will try my best to make it happen as soon as possible.

Here is a picture of my everyday makeup, minus the falsies. Lol this picture is from my last circle lens review.

Sorry for shitty phone quality.


I hope you had a lovely day!! Thank you so much for reading!

What's in my purse?!

image
Hello cuties! The other day I asked you guys on my tumblr whether you would like to know what I carry in my purse! I have finally made time to take some pictures and post it! I hope you like it!

This is what my purse look like, I believe my aunt gave me this purse as a Christmas present from Sanrio. I do not know the price or whether it is still on sale since it was from 5 years ago! I'm so sorry! The purse has two compartments! One main pocket and another pocket on the outside! It's a little dirty on the front, as you can see, because I accidentally left it on the floor :c 


Here are the things I have in my bag! I don't carry much as you can see! I don't like to carry much when I go out because it tends to hurt my shoulders when I do. I learned to make it simple and carry just the essentials! 

First let's start with these! I carry my passport with me because I don't have a cute wallet to match my HK bag yet!

 I have another black bag that  I like to carry around when I am not wearing a color outfit. I usually dress in black, (95% of the time honestly, lol). I just switch bags depending on my outfits and literally all I have in my black bag is my wallet and phone. I thought that was too boring and just not even anything worth mentioning. 

I use my passport as a wallet because on the inside it has openings that I can easily put my money and ID inside. I also like to carry around notebooks and pencils, because my car never has paper and when I really need to write something down or take a note I can easily just grab this from my bag.

Everything from eBay except the notebook, which I got from Target! 

Moving on, these are the only beauty essentials I carry around. I tend to not worry about my face during the day when I'm outside besides occasionally blotting my face for oil. I like to bring my Tony Moly petite bunny gloss bar and my MAC lipstick in Velvet Teddy. The pink one is for when I want to have some color in my lips but don't have time to be precise, I just dab some of this on as a lip tint and I'm ready to go. The MAC is more of an overall lip color when I want fuller natural looking lips.

I also have some of these cute floral hair ties because my hair tend to get in the way when I'm driving and since it's almost summer,I want my hair off my neck to prevent myself from getting sweaty and gross!! The heart pink is just in my purse...idk why. Lol

The Sailor Moon locket, is just the case for my really adorable earphones which I got on ebay! 

Here I have my peach hand cream! I did a review on this, you can read it here! I love this thing!! It makes my hands soo smooth! I like to have this because, I don't know why but I just love moisturizing my hands? haha Plus, the packaging is also to die for. It's so cute. Lastly, I also carry my car keys and my iPhone! I'm selling that bunny plush on my depop! If you do not know what depop is, it's an app that you download in your apple store. It's like  an storenvy but on your phone and easier to generate. Does that make sense? My username is @ricehime if you'd like to check it out!

That's it for this post! Thank you so much for reading!

Review: Petite Cherry Lingerie

Hello lovelies! Today I have something really cute to review for you!! Petite Cherry  has suggested to collaborate and have me review a set of lingerie for you guys, if you guys give me great feedback I will be hosting a giveaway with them!! Sounds good? Let's get started! 

The set I got is the Isabel Chiffon & Lace set!

You can use "RICHIME" for $5 off on 2 bra sets!



They just recently changed their URL to http://www.petitecherry.com/

This this how their packaging looks like! I think it's very nice! The set is stored in a sealed zip lock bag! 

I honestly love this set! I think everything about it is soo cute! 

I think one of the reason I got this set is because the ribbon and the lace details on the strap.


One of the thing I like about this bra is the cushion. I think push up bras are really nice but the ones I find in store, the cushion is really hard for some reason, but for this bra it's actually really mushy and soft. It surprised me. When you push against it while wearing it, it actually feels normal and not some hard foam. You know what I mean?

The straps on this set is removable, which is cool if you want to wear this strapless. I personally don't like it without the strap for this set because it doesn't really hold my boobs up. The kinds I like has this type of adhesive that clings on my boobs.

Overall Opinion:

I'm usually a size 32C or 34C sometimes D in bras depending on the brand. I got this set in 32C. It fits perfectly! I love how much lift it gives me. It makes my boobs look so nice. Lol I get this really nice push and cleavage. The panties are in a size medium but it fits fine! It's a tiny bit loose but it's not bad at all.

I loveee the design. I'm a sucker when it comes to anything lace and ribbons. It just makes everything cuter. The color is this corally pink shade, probably a bit more on the orangy coral but I love it. This is probably something you'd want to wear for your partner or even for yourself when you want to look super cute in your bedroom  c; heh heh heh. The straps probably not suitable to wear on a daily basis if you don't want to mess it up. The good thing about the straps being removable is that you can definitely switch it out for more of a wearable one and leave the lace straps for sexy time c: lol

I think the quality is great! The material is very very soft! I love it. Specially the panties. The mesh is incredibly comfortable to wear. I thought it was very well made as well. The price is about $30 USD and I think that's a very average price for a whole set. If you buy this in stores they're usually about the same price or even more. For the quality and design, I think it's great!!

The person that messaged me was really nice and she replied to my messages really quick. Which I really appreciate. I love the variety they had on their site. I wanted EVERYTHING. Literally. I think everything was super cute. The package got to me in less than two weeks. I really want to review more of their lingerie. Thank you so much Kaur's Laurel for sponsoring me this set! I really hope to work with you guys again!!
