I've been extremely busy this week and haven't found much time to update my blog.
Thank you everyone for the kind and supportive comments! I promise I'll try to get back to each one of you~ Your comments make my day :)
Anyway I've been tagged by EKI and Nic Nic to do the survey quiz. Their quizzes were both different so I combined some of the questions.
So here goes, hopefully this post will satisfy you stalkers!! XP
What is your current obsession?
Hm.. I’d have to say that I’m currently obsessed with clothes… This obsession is very bad for my budget haha
What is your weirdest obsession?
My weirdest obsession is looking at people's pics on facebook or blog ahahaha but not too much!
Also peeling at cuticle and lip.. Really bad -_-;
What are you wearing today?
Today I was wearing black leggings to the calf area and a gray Uniqlo tunic dress which sort of had an unflattering pregnant shape LOL
What's your favorite comfort food?
My grandma’s cooking! She made the best food… I miss it. She passed away recently so now I’m trying to learn how to make my favorites. I really like Thai green curry and Japanese nabe soups.
What would make today special?
Today wasn’t very special except that it was a HOT day, like 90 degrees. Oh, I wore a dress slash tunic thing, that was kind of special? I usually wear pants all the time.
What would you like to learn to do?
I'd like to learn how to run faster hehe
What's the last thing you bought?
The last thing I bought was a cardigan from Madewell and two tunics from Uniqlo.
What are you listening to right now?
HY, my favorite Japanese band. I posted a song by them before called 366 nichi. I love slow ballad kind of songs. I’m listening to another one of their songs called Song for…
What is your favorite weather?
I love sunny but cool temperature. I HATE hot weather like today, I get too sweaty and lethargic during the day. My hair also tends to get frizzy if it’s humid.
What is your most challenging goal right now?
Getting into a good college.. I want to go to Boston College hehe
What do you think about the person who tagged you?
Eki – My Japanese onee-chan I never had! She’s so nice to me and always treats me well (btw she sent me another package which was awesome!) She also makes the cutest accessories so check them out.
Nic Nic – A very cool and cute lady who has beautiful style and taste! I feel that my fashion and makeup tastes are the similar to her. She is one of the first beauty bloggers that I read all of the time. I started talking to Nic Nic before I had a blog!
If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Definitely somewhere in the mountains outlooking a forest (something interesting and surrounded by nature)
if you could swap lives with anyone for one day who would it be and why?
I'd want to try being a guy, it seems kind of interesting LOL. However I wouldn't
be able to wear makeup haha
If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
Hong Kong or Japan.
What would you like to have in your hands at right now?
An A in all classes hahaha
Which language do you wanna learn?
I really want to learn Chinese and Korean. I want to learn Chinese because I’m ½ Chinese and I wish to know more about that side of culture. I want to learn Korean so I can understand my friends!
What do you look for in a friend?
I look for a genuine, caring person who takes the time to treat me well. I like people who can hold good conversations.
Who do you want to meet in person?
Beauty bloggers! Yay ;)
What's your favorite type of music?
Lately I listen to a lot of Jpop/Jrock. I like mellow music and ballads.
What's your dream job?
Hm.. A journalist in a high fashion/beauty magazine! LOL
Any favorite model?
Yamada Yu. I like Mika Nakashima but she's a singer.
If you had $100 now what would you spend on it?
Hahaha.. I’d probably spend it all on clothes and makeup.
Things you wish you could change in the past?
I've always been very shy.. I want to change this even now.
Fashion Pet Peeve?
I really hate it when some people wear too many trendy things all at once. Such as, mini shorts, tights, high heels, dyed hair, and loud tunic blouse all at the same time. It really depends on the person though. Another thing I don’t like is the really tight pants called So Lows with the writing on the butt. Girls usually wear these pants with thongs and I don’t really like seeing their butt jiggling around when they walk -_-;
Do you admire anyone's style?
Describe your personal style.
I like simple stuff like blouses, cardigans and jeans. I don’t work yet, I’m still a student so I can dress casually everyday.
Marc Jacobs for the bags and Jcrew/Madewell for clothes.
What's your favorite ice cream flavor?
I love fruit sherbert/sorbet. For regular ice cream I like strawberry & vanilla.
What's your favorite makeup brand?
Mm... Not sure. I really like Jill Stuart packaging! I wish I can afford to get more xP
What makeup do you use a lot?
Lately, brown eyeliner and mascara (so basic and boring but quick)
Do you get enough beauty sleep? yes or no? why?
No... I surf the internet way too much and procrastinate in studying. I do try to take naps though but it's not the same!
Why did you start your (beauty) blog?
I was always interested in skincare & makeup stuff. I had nobody to talk to about it so I started this blog. Btw my username Beauty Snap comes from my love for taking photos! Snap = photo haha
EDIT: I totally forgot to tag people... Ok here goes~
Beeyoutiful aka Jennifer
The Purple Snowflake
AND anybody who hasn't done this tag yet! :)
Um... I was trying to get some people that weren't ever tagged before but many already were!!
Hope you enjoyed this post haha

Skin79 Super+ Beblesh (Pink):
(BB Stats format courtesy to KIMOKO of Livejournal)
Texture: Creamy but light, blends right into skin, not cakey
Shade: Grayish neutral undertone
Fragrance: Slight rose-like scent but fades after a minute
Oil-Control: Pretty good, shine after 7 hours
Dewy/Matte: Matte but not heavy
Overall: I liked this bb cream a lot! It didn’t make my skin look too ghoulish or have a white cast. One thing is that you can’t really see a noticeable difference in the skin after application. I haven’t tried this enough to see if it oxidizes throughout the day. This bb cream is triple function—whitening, sun protection, and anti-wrinkle protection.
The Face Shop "The Skin":
Coverage: Medium – Heavy (sort of covered my dark circles)
Texture: Creamy, a little hard to blend.
Shade: Grayish yellow
Fragrance: Medium strong scent, doesn’t disappear until 2-3 hours later. I don’t particularly like this scent.
Oil-Control: Not bad, didn't have to blot. (But I'm don't have particularly oily skin.)
Dewy/Matte: Matte and made my skin look a little cakey
Overall: I really didn’t like the smell of this bb cream. However I have a very sensitive nose (I am the kind of person that gets nauseous at the smell of heavily scented hand creams). This bb cream leaves a whitish cast on the skin that may be appealing to some. I don’t think this bb cream shade matched me very well. This bb cream is pretty good except the smell and tendency to get cakey if applied too copiously.
The BB creams were cool to try, I'm so happy I received them in the swap! I think BB creams are hit or miss, it's very difficult to find a good one without a trial test. I'm VERY interested in trying the L'egere bb cream but I haven't really found a good price for it online yet. I want a BB cream that can moderately cover my dark circles... It seems that L'egere does that for many.
I'll try to do reviews on some of the other things Jenn sent me like the Oriental Herb Face Shop Oil Gel cleanser, Bobbi Brown blush in French Pink, Egg Peeling Mask, and many more!
