Bits & Pieces! (Etude House/Stila/Skinfood/Mentholatum)

This morning I was awaken by the doorbell. My dear mail man had stuffed a few morning gifts in the mailbox for me ;D

Needless to say, no matter how often I receive things in the mail, they never fail to excite little old me ;)
Here lies my...
Etude House Aloha Cocktail Syrup Nails in #2 Sunshine Bronze
Stila Lip Glaze Stick in Vanilla
Skinfood Pomegranate Scalp Care Tonic
Mentholatum Medicated XD Lip balm

Cocktail Syrup Nail set! This is the limited edition summer nail kit from Etude House. You guys might be familiar with the Spring edition Miss Tangerine nail set. This Aloha set also comes in a pink kit called #1 Rose Cocktail. But I like this one more for the summer~ I think I'll be collecting all of their gradation sets in the future!

It's like the darker version of Miss Tangerine nail set, which I regret not buying!

Stila Lip Glaze Stick in Vanilla. I love the consistency of this "lip stick". It's glossy and smooth and very hydrating, yet it's not even close to sticky! I think I will be trying a few more of their sticks because I love the convenience and the formula so much ^^ The vanilla shade is essentially a slightly shimmery, moist gloss over the lips with no pigment. Kind of reminds me of YSL Candy Sheer Volupte in Lush Coconut ;D
Boring lip balms? I think not! I stumbled upon these when I was in Japan and my lips just happened to be extremely chapped (had a terrible cold). I grabbed the closest thing and this has become one of my stables! This is literally the only lip balm that immediately heals my lips and makes them soft and plump, and I am a total lip essence / balm / whatever junkie! Even the BF notices by the way ;)
I've always been troubled by the fact that I have relative thin hair and I tend to lose a bit more hair in the Summer. It just recently occurred to me that maybe I should be pampering my scalp a little. I was choosing between the this and the Yanagiya collagen medicated hair essence, but ended up with this one. I tried it on today and it is extremely minty and tingling on the scalp. Great for the summer~ Needless to say though, this one really requires some testing out to review and give results. I will have to be patient to wait and see ^^

  8. Ooohhh- those polishes are so cute! <333 And duude: I'ma total chapstick/lip balm freak, too! (Do you exfoliate your lips, too? It's so freaking nice~~. )

    Cuuuute blog! I love it!

    I completely agree with you on Seeshell and Geo lenses (Geo more-s) being uncomfortable. Generally Seeshell's okay, but drying, but sometimes, I can really feel a lens. @_@ (I don't feel to bad about not liking Geo lenses, though, as most of their series turn out so very dark on dark brown eyes.)

    I'd say EOS is pretty much my fav. brand. Neo is a very close second, though, definitely, if not a tie. (Beaucons, which is made by Neo, is another great brand, IMO.)

    Hope this helps! And thanks so much for folllowing/subscribing. <33
