Lanvin Me Perfume Review!

this perfume, Me by Lanvin is my new signature scent! I was lucky enough to go home with an 80ml bottle of this before it had even launched at the bellabox event in March! Here are my thoughts:

the campaign for Me is all about loving yourself, and embracing your personality through the fragrance


here’s the 80 ml rectangular bottle, with a black octagonal topper imprinted with the logo, and a gem on a gold colored chain


this is the bottle and it’s packaging


and here are the three sizes that it comes in:

the 30 ML, which is going for $76

the 50 ML, which is going for $108

and the 80ML, which is going for $140

this perfume is a little on the pricier side, but if you like it, I would go for the 80 ML bottle to get the most value for your money. You can pick this up at all major department stores like TANGS, Takashimaya, Robinsons, Isetan, OG, Metro, and so on! Do let me know your thoughts if you decide to purchase it or already have it!

1 Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eyeliner by K-Palette

K-Palette was kind enough to send me this amazing limited edition eyeliner! Loved by many, it’s now one of my new favorites! It’s easy to apply, super dark, and it lasts forever! Here’s my review:


The limited edition packaging, designed by these 5 girls from BLEA in Japan, and voted the best design by the student body.

here’s what the eyeliner looked like in real life


as you can see, it can create strokes of many different widths, from vermicelli to linguine


Although it claimed to be able to last for 24 hours, it definitely disappeared after one of my 5k runs, which is not surprising considering the amount I sweat.

As you can see in these close up shots, certain parts of the line remained, though they faded to a dull, gunmetal color, but that is only expected with vigorous cardio. The lasting power is still amazing, regardless, and while it’s not shower-proof, it is splash-proof, tear-proof, and most importantly, smudge-proof.


I can honestly say that I have found a new favorite! I love using this eyeliner in the mornings because it’s just so easy, and I don’t have to worry about setting it so that it doesn’t move during the day. 


Run down to your nearest Sasa to get this limited edition eyeliner at $19.90, (which isn’t bad btw), or to any Watsons to pick up just the regular black or brown eyeliner. This is a total must-have!

I hope you guys enjoyed this blogpost and video, and some of the pictures I used are by K-Palette and were included in the press kit–I’m sure you can tell which ones. I know I’ve been doing a lot of sponsored blogposts lately, but just as a reminder, all opinions are always 100% honest and my own, and I can only hope that someday a company will pay me for my work!
